Nov 25, 2007
A healthy diet is vital for weight loss, as well as for a happy and healthy life.

In this article we will look at 6 great diet tips- these tips will help you lose weight as well as giving you more energy to get through your day. These tips include:

Maintaining a Steady Metabolism - A steady metabolism means that you burn more calories throughout the day, whilst also giving you more energy throughout the day. The best way to maintain a steady metabolism is to eat regularly inter spaced, small meals throughout the day- approx one every 3 hours, with 8 hours off at night.

Eat smaller meals - Most people eat too much food, placing huge helpings on big plates and thinking that they have to clear the plate. Make smaller servings and serve them on smaller plates for a healthier diet.

If you compare serving sizes from 1970 to 2007, you will find that serving sizes have increased 25-36 percent. Just look at the giant sized sodas and burgers that are now considered standard, not to mention all of the super sized fast food meals.

Although you may be saving a few pennies by opting for the largest size, you body will thank you for choosing the smallest size possible. Whats better, to save 50 cents now and then spend twenty five dollars on a fat burner later on?

Eat more often - This goes with the above, and helps raise your metabolism so that you burn calories more quickly. Eating 6 smaller meals will help keep your energy levels up and keep your appetite at bay.

Drink more water - You need to drink at least 2 liters of water a day to boost your energy levels. Many people mistake hunger for thirst so end up eating too much. Try eating less food and drinking more water.

Don't Skip Breakfast - Way too many people skip breakfast, and this is to their detriment. Your body has been fasting for 8-12 hours and you need to start your day going with an energy and metabolism boost, ensuring you set your day off on the right track. If you routinely skip breakfast, it is time to change your routine.

Eat more fiber - fiber helps keep your body processes regular. You need to increase your intake of fruits, vegetables and grains, or supplement your diet with a fiber supplement. Eating more fiber will also help you feel full longer after eating a meal.

If you follow the above mentioned tips to improve your diet, you will find that you are losing weight, as well as living a happier, healthier life full of more energy.
