Where to find a healthy food guide

You can lose weight and build muscle by following a scientific exercise program and a healthy diet. The problem with modern diet is that it does not focus on whole foods that help to improve metabolism. A dietician can help you to prepare a diet chart, but that can be expensive. Here, you will find information on healthy foods and their role in improving health.

Good and bad foods

You have to understand that good and bad foods are difficult to differentiate unless you have a sound knowledge of healthy diet. For example, brown rice is an excellent source of complex carbohydrates, while white rice hinders weight loss. The same is true of brown bread, which is good for health, while white bread slows down the metabolism. Fruits are better than fruit juice as the latter is devoid of fibre.

Sources of healthy food guide

Healthyfood (Healthyfood.co.nz) is an excellent website to browse for simple, healthy and delicious recipes. This website dismisses the myth that healthy food cannot be tasty. The search tool allows you to find a recipe by using keywords, main ingredients, meals and occasions, recipe types and nutritional requirements.

EatingWell (Eatinwell.com) and “Food a fact of life” (Foodafactoflife.org.uk) are some good websites to find information on healthy foods. Fitness forums and websites also have valuable information for health and weight loss. Health blogs, especially the ones on healthy food recipes, contain interesting information for cooking healthy meals in less time.
