Health tips on the Go from your partner in healthy living.
Eat dinner at least 3 hours before you sleep. This gives your body some time to digest your last meal for the day and prepares your body to burn fat instead of piling it on. It also helps prevents acidity and indigestion.
Healthy up your happy hour: Instead of hanging out with your buddies at a pub or coffee shop, take a walk together, or play a sport of your choice.
Grazing between meals is a good way to curb a craving with healthy food rather than binge on junk food later. So feel free to snack on fruits, nuts and the kind between meals.
Instead of cutting out your favourite foods altogether, be a slim shopper. Buy a small bar of chocolate or a single samosa. You can still enjoy your favourite foods -- the key is moderation.
Frozen produce is better than canned. They have more nutrients, and less salt, sugar and chemicals. Still, fresh food is the healthiest.
Cut down on unnecessary calories: Check your kitchen to remove all unhealthy snacks. Replace them with healthier options like fruits, nuts and dried fruits.
Switch over to green tea! About 2 to 3 cups a day can help burn fat and lose weight. That apart, it's loaded with antioxidants that do you plenty good.
Even light exercise, such as a 20-minute walk, or taking the stairs every day, can be beneficial if done most days of the week. So start today.
Omega-3s are essential nutrients for health. So if you don't eat fish, include walnuts, flaxseeds, or supplements in your diet.
