Fact 2

Not all food nutrition facts are obvious. You might think that something is going to be healthier because it is grilled and this might not be the case. Learn about the nutritional content of restaurant and fast food by preparing ahead of time and finding meals that contain the nutrition that you want to eat. 

You can easily find a number of great resources to help you with this online.  I personally have found it best to carry a small list of the best choices at different restaurants where I enjoy eating. That way I do not forget and just have to pull out my list.

Fact 3

It is important that you learn fast food nutrition information if you want to be able to eat anywhere.  Not all fast food is bad for you and regardless of where you are eating, there are sure to be healthy choices that will work for you.

Fact 4

You should also know that all fats are not bad fats. Unfortunately fat has gotten a bad rap and most people believe that eating fats is a bad thing. The truth is eating healthy fats helps raise your good cholesterol which can help you enjoy improved lifelong health. Fats are also building block for cells in our bodies, each and every single one of them!

Fact 5

Likewise all sugars are not bad. If you choose options that are naturally sweetened or products made with natural sugars then you can enjoy nearly every treat that you can think of. This is easy to do by simply avoiding high fructose corn syrup and choosing products that are processed with natural cane sugar instead.

Fact 6

Not all starches are bad either. While white flour is not good for you there are a ton of choices in different starchy products that contain no white flour. There are also plenty of gluten free foods so even if you are gluten intolerant, there is still no shortage of options available to you.

Fact 7

Finding the right nutrition for life does not mean that you are going to be on a ‘diet’.  Instead you will need to make a lifestyle change. This means that you should instead find a way of eating that you can continue for the rest of your life. Nutritional balance is the key. You can always refer to a food nutrition chart available on-line.

Fact 8

Eat all things in moderation. This is really important. When you try to do things in extreme and decide to avoid your favorite treats completely, it will only make you miserable. Instead, you should allow yourself a treat from time to time.

Fact 9

Increasing the amount of water that you drink has numerous health benefits. The main one is that you are going to stay hydrated and you will have better health overall. Drink even if you do not feel thirsty. Most people do not realize the importance of drinking their eight glasses of water a day. This is such a simple thing to do and it can make a tremendous difference.

Fact 10

Remember to eat often. This was a personal struggle for me because I used to like to eat one meal a day and snack here and there. Some days I would not even eat more than the one meal per day. However since I have started eating five mini meals a day I feel great and ready to tackle the world head on.

These food nutrition facts are all simple to follow but they can make a world of a difference to your health and well being. If you have some of your own tried and tested ideas, why not share them with us, also if you have any questions please do contact me
