By now, you’ve likely heard experts say that if you want to lose weight and keep it off, you need to change your eating habits permanently. But it can be difficult to drop all the foods you love from your diet and replace them with less tasty options. There’s good news, though. Experts say you don’t have to stop eating the foods you love, as long as you add healthy foods to your diet to counterbalance them.
One simple switch you can make is from white to whole grain bread. You’ll feel fuller and get the many nutritional values that whole grains bring. Working in a few extra vegetables can also help—the more colorful, the better. Vegetables not only pack in plenty of nutrients, but they also are full of fiber for digestive health.
Another small switch you can make is to munch on nuts instead of junk food. You may look at the nutrition label and wince, but they also are loaded with fiber, which will help keep hunger pangs at bay. One last thing you can try is to keep water nearby since often when you’re feeling hungry, your body is actually telling you that you need some hydration.
