Check Out your Diet and See if it is Working

By: Sandra Goldstein

The method for which you diet can do great wonders for your body and health in the future or it may forever ruin your hopes for looking wonderful and feeling awesome. Everyone is into the dieting scenario need to eat more broccoli and much more raw fruits and vegetables while cutting out the fat.

For the greater part of our lives we try to stay on the right side of healthy, however it's not always easy. Add to that the notion there are so many conflicting articles of information on what's hot and what's not.

So what can you do to be sure your diet is both helping you to lose weight and stay healthy in the long run?

When it comes to diets, use common sense. Common sense won't let you starve to death. Common sense is your best ally when it comes to healthy diet choices.

The next important thing to understand is your body requires proteins, fats, sugars, fibers, vitamins and minerals at every meal. Ideally, every time you consume food, your plate should have protein, a small amount of fat and a little fibrous mass to ensure you feel full and satisfied.

This takes planning and for some of us planning can be hard difficult. We are very much into "mindlessly munching on pretzels". You have to admit, it's a much easier to grab the bag of junk food is available than plan a balanced meal.

This means if you plan to replace your bag potato chips with a fruit snack, you won't feel good about it won't satisfy you. An apple followed by, plain yogurt, will keep you more filled than two apples.

Another thing we hear is raw food is better than cooked food. You are not told eggplants and beans sometimes harbor toxic compounds that can wreak havoc on your digestive system eaten raw. Many plants containing starch cannot be ingested raw because our bodies does not process this type of starch unless transformed by high temperature processing - cooking, that is.

Other vegetables, such as carrots, contain fragile nutrients which can be destroyed in a frying pan. Cooked carrots still contain tons of wonderful nutrients and vitamins. There isn't any evidence sushi is any better for you than grilled salmon. So, what can be done? Ingest a mixture of raw and cooked fruits and veggies. If it's eaten raw, go for it. If it's usually cooked, don't eat it raw.

Dieting choices need to be made according to your body's needs. It's really of no significance to starve yourself or ingest disgusting foods.
