Diet routine: Eating healthy

Healthy nutrition is a topic usually taught in primary school. In theory, most people also know what healthy diet means, and yet many don’t follow these basic principles simply because many people are actually unaware that healthy food can also be tasty and easy to prepare.

Proper weight loss and healthy living: This is important for your diet

It’s not healthy to permanently restrict your diet to only a few type of foods. We often throw all good intentions overboard when the cravings kick in and beat any strictness in nutritional terms. This is followed by the bad conscience. But nobody should have that! With these cravings, the body only indicates that it is in a deficiency situation and needs certain substances.

Those who want to lose weight shouldn’t reduce their calories, but the amount of food that is taken in. Constant stomach growling gets you in the bad mood and your body usually feels tired and unpowered. The body compensates the missing nutrients for some time from the internal storage, but when those nutrients are used up, the cravings show up. Any dietary advice aims to make people aware of this and prevent malnutrition from this awareness.

It doesn’t matter whether it is about living permanently healthy or finally wanting to lose weight: certain principles are important. Food should be as unprocessed as possible as recommended by your personal trainer. Buy fresh fruits and vegetables rather than microwave and ready meals. Cook yourself and get the significantly higher nutrient content of these foods compared to the finished products. Who wants to do something good for his body, renounces unnecessary additives and cooks with high quality, fresh ingredients. These have another great benefit in addition to better preservation of vitamins and minerals. Those have significantly less calories! Since you have it in your own hands to add sugar or fats - or just omit them - you live significantly healthier and calorie-reduced with this kind of diet.

Personal Trainer Frankfurt: Making sport and food routine

Many people try to live healthier lives and get more exercise. They plan their sport at least once or twice a week into everyday life and see this as an important, not to be postponed appointment. Why should not that be the same with nutrition? Of course, it's not about a strict dogma that dictates meal times and the type of food. No nutritional advice would be a good thing. Rather, it is important in the diet routine that you should know what you want to eat next week, for example. Plan the menu before you start shopping for the weekend and buy the food accordingly. Some ingredients for the planned food you should buy fresh, and you should have other on stock. This avoids the constant question of "What should I eat today?" And above all the problem that results from such poor planning: There is nothing to eat! Usually then is resorted to finished products, the good intentions for self-cooking are postponed. Therefore, let the weekly planning become a diet routine!

Personal Trainer Frankfurt advises: You can eat this with a clear conscience

So once again, the foods should rather be unprocessed. Rather, grab rice rather than pasta, and prefer whole-grain rice. This contains all the important substances and provides valuable fiber. Fruits and vegetables are a daily staple, as well as raw vegetables, eggs and a bit of meat on the menu. The FDA recommends the following:

  • Variety
    Eat as varied and plant-based as possible. Avoid unnecessarily many dairy products that provide little added value but lots of calories.
  • Five times a day
    Fruit and vegetables should be on the menu five times a day. Eat as colorfully as possible, which has the advantage that you consume almost all vitamins via fruit and vegetables.
  • Whole grain
    Rely on whole grains, these are more saturated and low in calories. They also have what it takes to prevent disease. Avoid products made from white flour and reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.
  • Fat
    Do not completely skip fats, but replace animal with vegetable fats. They are also healthier than fat-reduced products.
  • Also: Drink a lot of water or unsweetened tea, eat slowly and stay physically active!

One thing is still important: if possible, use organic products in your diet. These don’t burden the body unnecessarily with pollutants commonly used in conventional agriculture (fertilizers and sprays).
