1. Ensure sufficient variation
Variation is important because not every food contains the same nutrients. Be inspired by a fruit and vegetable calendar and vary with beef, veal, pork, and poultry or even rabbit. Make sure that fish is on the menu at least twice a week. Our recipes can give ideas, but let your own creativity feel free to run free.
2. Cook more often yourself
Cook more often instead of relying on ready-to-eat meals or eating outdoors. That way you decide on all the ingredients yourself. Moreover, it is a lot cheaper.
3. Ensure sufficient regularity
That means breakfast, a hot meal and a second bread meal. Is there still room for snacks? Yes, but do it consciously and controlled. For example, a piece of fruit or a jar of yogurt. Regular food provides an optimal feeling of satiety and prevents overheating in between or at the next meal.
4. More fruits and vegetables
You never eat enough of vegetables. Eat 100 g vegetables with the bread meal and half a plate (200 g) with the hot meal. In addition, eat 2 to 3 pieces of fruit daily.
5. Water is preferred
Drinking 1.5 liters every day of which 1 liter of water is the message. Anyone who does sports or heavy physical work and loses more fluid through perspiration will drink more water. Drink a glass of water regularly, so you can easily reach the recommended amount.
6. Choose healthy carbohydrates
Carbohydrates are our main source of energy. Take them preferably in the form of basic products such as wholemeal bread, potatoes, legumes and vegetables. They are also a source of dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals. There is not enough scientific evidence to suggest that carbohydrates in the currently recommended amounts are the cause of overweight and other welfare diseases. Limit your intake of added sugar by eating less candy, chocolate, sweets, cakes, cakes and sodas.
7. A healthy breakfast every day
Get up ten minutes earlier, take a healthy breakfast and prepare your own packed lunch every day. Choose brown bread and also vary with raw vegetables and fruit as a topping.
8. Lose weight without strict diet
Whether you want to lose weight or just want to stay on weight, the basic rules are the same. Balanced food and sufficient exercise offer the best guarantee for a healthy weight and good health. Strict and unilateral diets are not only an attack on your mood but also on your body. The active food triangle is the best guideline for a line-friendly diet.
