Weight Loss Tips: 10 Healthy Eating Tips For Persons On The Go
If you are a person on the go and don’t have the time to prepare and cook a meal and want to avoid fast food then this try a few of the following healthy eating tips for those people on the go. With these healthy eating tips there is no cooking, or anything to prepare and is perfect for those people on a weight loss program.
Tip #1 – Carry Some Fresh Fruit With You For A Quick Snack.
The best thing about fresh fruit is that almost all of them are ready to eat. It isn’t that hard to put a banana in your purse or an apple in your brief case. Not having to keep them chilled is a huge advantage compared to other foods that are affected by the elements.
Tip #2 – Purchase Already Prepared Fresh Vegetables.
You can buy premade salads, carrots, broccoli, celery, cauliflower, and other similar items in most grocery stores nowadays. Many grocery stores and delis have these items readily available for lunch goers or people looking for a healthy meal. You might pay a bit of a premium for them to prepare them for you, but not having to do it yourself is attractive to many.
Tip #3 – Consider Dried Fruit For A Healthy Alternative.
The most common dried fruit are raisins, prunes, dates, and figs. Vitamins, minerals, fiber, and unique phytochemicals are plentiful in dried fruit and are sweet enough to settle most any sweet tooth.
Tip #4 – Whole Grain Bread or A Bagel Are Very Popular For A Filling Snack.
There is a big nutritional difference between whole grain bread products and processed white bread or sweetened bread. If a food product has been processed or altered significantly it has likely lost a lot of its nutrients and value as a meal. You don’t want to eat too much bread products but if you do go for whole grain with a low fat jelly.
Tip #5 – Respected Meal Supplement Shakes
There are possibly hundreds of meal supplement shakes to choose from, so try a few out to see which ones fit your taste and nutritional values. Most only needs water to be added and then stirred for them to be ready to consume. Others may require a blender, so those may be out for the purposes of this article. Replacing a breakfast or a lunch with a meal supplement is not only healthy but could be a tasty alternative.
Tip #6 – Unprocessed Nuts Are a Very Healthy Snack
Nuts that have not been tampered with, like peanuts out of the shell, almonds, cashews, and other like nuts are high in good type of fat and cholesterol burning elements. They may lack in taste but the benefits make them well worth it.
Tip #7 – Try Freshly Made Fruit and Vegetable Juices.
Many bigger cities have juice bars where you can have your juice freshly made without any processing or tampering. Many juices at your grocery story use artificial flavoring and coloring for quick manufacturing. Make sure the juice you are drinking is 100% fruit juice.
Tip #8 – Wheatgrass Drinks
This is a newer product that is made from pressed young blades of wheat and barley. Some may consider these this a meal supplement but I don’t believe they have enough substance to replace a whole meal. I add fruit or a protein bar along with it.
Tip #9 – Protein Bars or Fiber One Bars
Since I have been trying to eat more meals throughout my day while cutting back my portions I have added protein bars and Fiber One bars to my diet. Again, there is a ton of variation out there so try a bunch out and see what fits you. I like the peanut butter protein bats and the chocolate Fiber One bars. I suggest eating the Fiber One bars later in the afternoon or evening, because they can make you a little gassy, I only bring this up because I had to learn the hard way.
Tip #10 – Drink 6 to 10 Glasses of Cold Water Per Day.
Drinking water will speed up your metabolism, and help you from being dehydrated. Simply put your metabolism does not work if water is not involved. Also, if you are not dehydrated your body will not store as much water, which will keep off the water weight. Water is too important in digestion and overall body function to be ignored or neglected.
