How to start a healthy diet

Starting a healthy diet must begin with proper nutrition. Proper nutrition means that you must have the right proportions of healthy foods. Starting a diet will begin with reduction of the harmful foods and increasing the foods that will sustain you throughout the day. Slow weight loss will help you more than some of these quick weight loss fads.

How to start eating healthy

It is not so important about which diet you choose to follow, as it is about the diet foods you choose to eat. What are healthy foods? Foods that feed your body properly and give you enough fuel to have energy and enough antioxidants to fight off disease. Diet meals should have no sugar, white flour or white rice. They should follow the Zone Diet as an example. The Zone Diet has proper nutrition and you are given guidelines to follow: 40% carbohydrates,
30% fats and 30% protein. Some would argue that 30% fats are too high so reduce the fats if you desire. Eating a diet full of processed foods that are low in calorie is not healthy either. In the beginning, start out slow and eliminate one bad food out of your diet, such as sugar, sodas and white bread. The next week eliminate another harmful food out of your diet. Before long you will be eating healthier and losing weight too.

Healthy heart diet

What is a heart diet? Heart disease is the number one killer in the world. So, in order to have a healthy heart, you must eat healthy oils. The best oil to eat is olive oil, but only if you know how to use the oil. Extra virgin olive oil is for dipping, salads and sauteing. Virgin olive oil is for frying. A healthy diet however should be void of all frying. When you prepare your meats, bake, broil or steam. Most heart diets have limited oil consumption, not to exceed 25%. A diabetic diet would close imitate a heart healthy diet with no sugar and only foods on the low glycemic index chart.

Diet for cancer

A healthy diet for cancer is the same for any healthy vegetarian. Health and diet go hand and foot. This means that you can fight the cancer, if you eat properly. Most cancer diets have no meat or fish. You eat a raw vegetarian diet with nuts (almonds and walnuts are best) and legumes. Stick to one cooked meal a day and have lots of juices. Fruit juice is better avoided as sugar feeds the tumour. Vegetable juice is optimum and you can add in one apple for sweetness. In addition to the foods you will be eating, make sure to get enough vitamins.
