4 Habits To Healthy Eating

1) Eat slowly and don't mark the end of your meal by a clean plate, mark it by how your stomach feels. It takes   a bit for our mind to recognize that we are full. Once you reach about 75-80% full push your plate away. take   your time here, try not to rush through your meal.                                                                                           
2) Eat more protein with each meal. A serving of protein is about the size of your palm. Women should get one   serving per meal and men should get two servings per meal. Remember, protein comes from many sources, not just meat. Include things like dark leafy greens, beans and legumes in your protein intake.
3) Eat your fruits and vegetables! How many times have you heard this? The recommended amount of fruits   and vegetables for a normal healthy diet is 7 servings per day. While fruits are great for you try to eat more vegetables than fruit. This may take time, ease into it.                                                                                      
4) Don’t be afraid of healthy fats! The low fat craze has everyone avoiding fat. Stop avoiding fat and find          healthy fats to add in to your diet. Some of my favorite healthy fats are avocados, almonds, olives, coconut   oil and peanuts. Remember, use moderation here!
