I agree with you in this informative post. A good diet will definitely help attain our goal in having a healthy lifestyle. This is also important with our dental health. When we eat a proper diet, it affects our teeth's health.

Hello everyone,
I am going to discuss some important tips for diet and health.

* If you are going to a restaurant, decide ahead of time what you will be eating. Stick to it.
* Exercise – If you want to stay healthy and make weight loss permanent you just cant do without exercise. Along with cutting down on the fat you eat exercising regularly may be your best ally in improving your all around health and bringing your weight loss under control.
* Water is essential to all bodily functions and has no calories. It is the perfect drink for dieters. You need eight 8 oz. glasses of water daily.
* Be happy: you're OK! Resisting all those tempting foods is NOT going to kill you.

* Let someone else be the walking garbage disposal: you are no longer responsible for eating up the leftovers after a meal.
* Success is when you can look beyond food...and look down and see your feet.
* Each day you stay on your weight-loss diet brings you closer to your weight goal.
* The purpose of getting together with people is to enjoy their company...not eating.
* Chart or graph your weight loss and serving selections.
* Take small servings - avoid gorging yourself.
* Consuming most calories in one big meal is the worst way to diet. Eat 4 or 5 small meals rather than in one all-out feeding frenzy.
* If your schedule only permits you to eat one major meal in a day, eat it in the morning to midday hours rather than afternoon/evening hours.
* Repeat: "I'm learning a way to live, not just a way to diet."
* Limit your time in the grocery store. The longer you stay, the more you will buy.
* Never starve yourself, especially before going out to eat (or you will binge). Never skip meals, you must have some kind of nourishment regularly or your body's starvation defences will kick in, lower your metabolism, and store fat.
* Be patient - it took years to gain weight; it takes time to lose weight.
* "Nibble" food and "linger" over drinks. Do the "Push Away From The Table Exercise."
* Chew your food completely: digestion begins in the mouth. Avoid "washing" half-chewed food down.
* Lose weight with a supportive friend or in a support group.
* Emphasize your weight loss triumphs and work towards making them more frequent
* Find a weight loss "buddy," club, or support group. This will help you stay with your weight loss program.
*

Use mustard on your sandwiches instead of mayonnaise. Mustard has no fat & very little calories while Mayo, is loaded with fat. If you just don’t like the taste of mustard, find a low-fat alternative, but avoid mayonnaise at all costs.
* Weigh yourself each week. Don't be worried about small daily changes in your weight. You shouldn't lose more than 1 - 2 pounds a week. There may be weeks when you don't lose weight. This is normal. Stay on your diet to lose weight.
* Bake, roast, or broil your food instead of frying. Remove all fat from meats and skin from poultry before cooking.
* Drink 6 to 8 glasses of water each day. This will help flush out your body while also suppressing your appetite
*

If you haven't done so already, switch to diet soft drinks. An average 12 Oz can of regular soda contains around 120 calories, while the diet version usually has one or zero. If you drink 3 cans a day, you'll be saving 360 calories right there. Now multiply that by 7 days a week, 30 days a month and 365 days a year... You'll be saving a lot of calories!
* Limit alcohol. Alcoholic drinks have many calories & little else.
* Schedule your exercise time just as you plan your other activities of the day. Treat this time as an important appointment you don’t want to miss

A myth. Protein is found in every fruit and vegetable. No need to focus on protein unless you are perhaps a bodybuilder, or suffer from a protein absorption disease. If you get enough calories, you get enough protein. I have had no problem building muscle eating nothing but 100% raw fruits and vegetables.
