Practical Tips for Weight Management

In my previous post, I dragged myself and kid to Nestle’s Wellness Kiosk to check briefly on our nutritional health.

Not only that we had our vitals known, we had some tips to keeping our weights down and to keeping a healthy diet.

So, let me share the following tips from Nestle’s Wellness Corner:
  • Eat out less. You tend to eat more when eating out due to big food portions.
  • Do not skip meals especially breakfast. When you skip meals, you tend to eat more to compensate your hunger.
  • Eat whole grains and cereals. These are high in fiber. Fiber makes you feel fuller longer.
  • Enjoy fresh fruits with skin rather than fruit juice. Fresh fruits with skin have more fiber. In addition, most nutrients are usually found in the skin of fruits.
  • Control what triggers or stimulates you to eat even when you are not hungry.
  • Drink adequate water everyday. Water hydrates with no calories, and may help your prevent hunger pangs as most people recognize thirst as hunger.
  • Read food labels all the time. There could be some hidden fats and sugars in food that increases calories of food eaten.
  • Avoid fried, fatty, salty and sweet food.
  • Keep a food, exercise and body weight journal. Take note of extra food intake, inactive lifestyle and drastic weight change.
  • Aside from live microorganisms for digestive health, yogurt is also a source of calcium.

And, over and above all these, keep everything in moderation, variety and balance.
