Eating three reasonable meals and two snacks a day will keep you satisfied and boost your metabolism. Here are a few healthy eating tricks:
1. Eat at least two servings of low-sugar fruit and three servings of vegetables a day. Eating the actual fruit and vegetables rather than juices that contain no fiber will save you calories!
2. Choose whole grains, as they have more Vitamins E and B6, magnesium, zinc, copper, manganese, potassium and fiber. The complex carbohydrates will help you lose weight.
3. Say no to sugar-sweetened drinks. Choose drinks that have no or few calories and be wary of sodas and teas. Many of these beverages are high in sugar.
4. Decrease the amount of pre prepared foods you eat such as frozen meals, canned soups, and food from restaurants. These foods are typically high in sodium and calories.
