Watch out for sugar-free items. These products and also a number of sweeteners consist of as many or more calories as the real sugar items. Don’t be misled by them! If you really need to have some sugar, you are best taking in the actual sugar than this fake sugar.
You might start off your day with an apple, some fat-free milk, and a whole wheat english muffin with peanut butter. Smoothies are also good choices. Skipping breakfast increases over-eating at lunch time, resulting in packing on extra carbs and fat. And this causes sluggishness and tiredness for the remainder of the day.
It’s often said that “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” For the most part.this happens to be true. So.for starters, make sure you and your child both eat a healthy breakfast.
Eggs – Eggs contain a good portion of protein and energize your body for longer. This means that you need not eat meals repeatedly and less intake of alternate food. You can try different types of egg recipes – scrambled eggs, omelet, egg sandwich, egg with milk etc and never get bored with your healthy egg breakfast. Eggs supply your body with a good amount of protein and fiber and are consumed by all age types.
All this will obviously help our children perform better at tests, make school a more pleasant, happier experience for them, and set them up for life with good eating and work habits. In my book, this is a pretty good return for making sure they have a properly balanced breakfast every morning.
Fiber is especially important to a diabetics diet. We should have fiber, along with Vitamin D, Calcium, and Omega-3s at every meal. (The guidelines for these 4 particular fat-fighters are a good idea for anyone, diabetic or not.) Here are a few examples of the fiber content of some common foods: 1 medium apple = about 3 grams, 1/2 cup fresh raspberries = 4 grams, 1 cup cooked fresh spinach = 4 grams, and 1/2 cup chickpeas = 6 gram. In reference to the above tidbit, this is why it is important to eat whole-grain breads.
Recent studies have found that eating about a quarter cup of almonds a day can lower your LDL by 4.4 percent. Almonds are full of good monounsaturated fats and are leaps and bounds better for you than eating chips or other snacky foods. Almonds can be high in calories however, so I recommend the dry roasted kind for snacking.
Aimless life leads to nowhere. You must have to setup your goal. Don’t worry, you are not going to go to compete in Olympics next time. A common problem people have while setting up a goal is either they set their goal too high or they just don’t set at all. Set up a reasonable goal for yourself. And there is a reason behind it. Once you setup your goal, your unconscious mind constantly remind you of achieving it. This way you will have a reason to get flat abs in the time frame you setup for yourself.
