Tips on making healthy food choices?

April 24th, 2012

One of the easiest ways to make healthy choices is to have a well stocked kitchen. Having nutritious snacks in your kitchen, lunch box or briefcase is the first step to incorporating healthy snacks into your diet plan.

Going too long between meals and not having healthy snacks readily available is usually when you overeat.  Another landmine is denying yourself snacks.  Deprivation can be a trigger for a binge or going overboard.  It is much better to plan ahead so you can satisfy your desire for a sweet or savory snack every day with a portion controlled nutritious snack.

Take a walk through the grocery store in search of healthy, convenient snacks like bars, cups and individual pouches that are portion controlled and low in calories.

As a basic rule, try to keep snacks to approximately 100-200 calories.  Many of the 100 calorie products feature portion controlled snacks that are great for weight control.  But unless there is some nutritional goodness to the product, keep these 100 calorie snacks to a minimum.
