Want to Make Your Diet Healthier? Follow These Tips

You think you might be following a really healthy diet regime, but sometimes, it might not end up having any effect whatsoever. IN order to ensure that your diet actually plays a role in your well-being, here are a few tips that you should look into.

It would be prudent to say that food can essentially act as medicine when given the chance, so why not make the best of the ingredients that we are offered and utilize them to their fullest potential to reap health benefits from them?

We understand that making drastic changes to your diet could overwhelm you, so here we have a few tips and tricks that will help you ease into the process gradually and steadily without even making you feel like you are doing anything different.

The Cooking Method:

How you cook your food tremendously affects the nutritional value of the food that you are cooking. However tempted we might be to indulge in those French fries, always remember they have been deep fried, definitely not a method of cooking you should be including in a 'healthy' diet.

Instead of frying why not opt for a healthier method of cooking, like baking or even roasting? The main reason as to why cooking methods like frying, broiling and even shallow frying are considered unhealthy is because during these cooking methods, many potentially toxic compounds are formed. These are the sort of compounds that have been linked with several diseases like heart diseases and even cancer.

Cooking methods like baking, slow-cooking, poaching and stewing do not leave space for such components to form and are thus healthier than any other cooking methods.


It does not matter how many times we say this, but let us just say it again; water is your best friend!

From promoting weight loss, maintaining weight and even increasing the number of calories you usually tend to burn in one day, water can prove to be a miracle worker when you think about it!

The next time you feel like reaching for that can of pepsi or mountain dew, think again and instead divert your hand to go grab a bottle of water instead!

Eat Fruits, Don’t Drink Them:

Any dietician or nutritionist worth their penny will always say that no matter how many times you might have been told that fruit juices are good for you, the processed tetra pack juice that you get at the local markets, are anything but that. Those packs can literally cause one more harm than good.

As whole fruits contain fiber, the sugar present in them gets digested slowly and without causing spikes in the blood sugar levels. This is not the same in case of fruit juices.

Most of the time than not, the fruit juices you find in the market are made up of fruit concentrates and sugar and water. There is literally no fruits present in them.

We understand that now you will try to defend the real fruit juices that you can find in almost every corner of a market. Despite the fact that these might be real fruit juices, they still are devoid of the right amount of fiber that is needed to make it a healthy option.

So try to indulge in fruits the next time you decide to have a dose of a healthy and nutritious food.

The Right Fat:

The whole concept of diets being 'fat-free' ends up doing more harm than good to your body. What needs to be understood is the right kind of fat actually does more good than anything else.

An like extra virgin olive oil in India proves to.be so much better than most oils available in the market. Even if you do decide to pursue a low fat diet, this will prove to be your best friend

Of course, the only downside to EVO is the fact that you can't actually cook with it. So an oil like pomace olive oil would make for the best cooking oil for health in this context. So do try to incorporate both of these in your diet.

The Bottom Line

These are fairly simple tips that, when followed can truly lead you to follow a healthier and fitter lifestyle and routine.
