Top 5 tips to eat right

The amount of information about eating right is OVERWHELMING!! Whereever you see there are people who have their own philosophy about eating right. Well, I can either be one of them or I can read through their philosolphies and tell you which are the most effective ones based on research and personal experience. I would I would go for the latter. I have gone through a number of websites and books to see what nutritional and the fitness industry experts class as healthy eating or the RIGHT WAY TO EAT. I found that most of them were saying more or less the same thing. One concetrated on one bit more than the other and vice versa. So here goes:

The more colourful the better: If you are eating a steak, it is usually dark brown in colour. Now just give it color, add a small portion of mashed potatoes (made with olive oil), some bell peppers, onions, tomatoes and chillies. Now that is colorful and at the same time, it will much healthier that just a piece of MEAT. You get fiber and complex carbs from the vegetables and mashed potatoes. You get the fat from the meat and olive oil in the mashed potates and protein from the meat. 'A complete meal' I call it. Add vegetables to add colour to your meal. Lots of vitamines and minerals along with fiber to help you feel more satisfied.

Stay hydrated: Doesn't matter how many times I talk about drinking water, it is not enough. I remember reading that if you are a body builder or you workout with heavy weights, you will increase your lifts by about 8% if you are hydrated as compared to when you are not. Just goes on to show you how good water is for you. I mean...we are about 80% water..aren't we? Ohh and if you are a body builder, protein can only bind with water. 1 molecule of protein binds with 2 of water. Have you ever noticed at 100grams of lean chicken breast has 21 - 25 grams of protein. What is the rest of the 75%? Well, about 70% or that 75 is water. So PEOPLE drink up!!

Never fill yourself to the limit: Smaller meals speed up your metabolism whereas larger meals speed it to the extent that your systems get exhausted and then slows down very quickly, UNLESS you have the capacity to cope with this load. Let's take a look at an example. If you have an old car, you travel at a speed of 30 - 40 miles an hour, the car will be fine and will take you from point A to point B. That very same car, if driven at 100 miles an hour will go fine for a while but chances are it may get heated up or might get some other problem. I know not that great an example but you get the idea!!! I suggest fill up to 2/3rds of your stomach.

Don't eat any a MEAL 2 hours before bet time: The reason for this is because when you sleep your matabolism slows down. If you eat something (especially carbs) before going to bed, they will not get used up and get stored as fat. Now noones wants that!! right? So give it a couple of hours before you go to bed.

Avoid simple sugars and saturated fats: This really is a no brainer. Simple sugars like any thing that has sugar and saturated fats like processed oil and butter etc. both should be avoided. Ohh and don't forget the ICE CREAM!! Ice cream has both simple sugars and cream i.e. saturated fat.

Follow these and you see a difference your lifestyle.

Excellent post! I especially like what you have to say about filling yourself to the limit. So many people who struggle with their weight eat to achieve that feeling... that's what I used to do. I'll be bookmarking this blog and coming back often!

I feel that when I stay hydrated, I feel more full so I don't eat too much even when I am in restaurants.

I used to eat whole-wheat bread but I removed it from my diet because they have added sugar.

I do enjoy fat-free icecream for post-workout nutrition.

Usman Pasha Siddiqui said...

Great commets Kai. I won't recommend that you remove whole wheat bread. We shouldn't really be carb phobes. Sugars are good for us in the right amount!! :)

Yes, I think stopping eating before you're full is key. Also realised I'm a vintage car now and I need to keep the revs up by moving lots if I want to keep up with the newer models:)

VD said...

Great post....Plenty of useful information. Job well done.

Tyler said...

Thank you for the helpful information Usman. I'm very dedicated to my weight training and have been using the Escalating Density Training program religiously.

However, one thing that I haven't been focusing on is my nutrition, which you've brought to my attention to today. Thank you for the helpful tips and reminder ;) I'll be looking into it.

About Saturated Fats...For men at least, Saturated fat is NECESSARY (5g a day or so) for the production of testosterone. You must take in some cholesterol. I get it by drinking whole milk instead of skim.

Hey it such a great info, I used many of those tips to lose weight. I will be back for more info!

Davon Jacobson, Md said...

The two of my favorites that you mentioned were to make your food more colorful, and not to feed yourself to the limit. Many of my patients tend to fill themselves to the limit because they do not want to waste anything. Also the "staying hydrated" point cannot be stressed enough. Keep up the great work with your health and please stop by my blog sometime. The web address is http://healthy-nutrition-facts.blogspot.com/.

Good post. No benefit whatsoever if we eat too much. Much of what we eat also should be converted to energy rather than become stored fats.
