When it comes to your diet, do you think you have good eating habits? Think again! These food facts might change the way you look at your nutrition:
Limiting the amount of food you eat doesn’t mean you’ll lose weight.
On average, women who skip breakfast each morning actually tend to weigh more than women who eat a healthy, balanced breakfast. Skipping breakfast causes your blood sugar levels to dip, which can lead to cravings and binge eating later in the day. Do yourself a favor, and don’t skip the first meal of the day!
Fatty foods aren’t always bad for you.
A specific kind of fat – monounsaturated fat – is “good fat” for your body. It helps to keep cholesterol levels low and can prevent heart disease. You can find monounsaturated fats in foods like avocados, olive oil, and nuts.
It’s OK to eat more than three meals each day.
Many nutrition experts actually recommend eating five small meals throughout the day instead of three large meals. Eating smaller meals more frequently can keep your blood sugar levels stable. This will help to prevent cravings, as well as keep you feeling more full in between meals.
