Is It Possible To Follow a Strict Diet Program and Still Have A Normal Lifestyle?


Following a diet program of any sort can sometimes be restricting depending on different circumstances. A Strict diet program can be hard to stick to and the best diet programs are the diet programs that you can definitely stick with for the rest of your life.

The best advice for a diet program is a healthy balanced diet using all food groups, drink plenty of water and exercise very regularly. Sticking with this type of diet program is not restricting in any way and gives you a huge variety of foods to choose from. Watch your fat intake and really stop and think about what you are about to put into your mouth. You know if you are eating junk or eating a healthy diet.

It's up to you at the end of the day to educate yourself on what type of diet program is ridiculous and which are sensible and maintainable for a lifetime. The secret is exercise. Your diet program simply must include exercise if you want the best results in the shortest possible time.With so much confusing information in the market about exactly what a healthy diet is; it's little wonder people fumble and end up so frustrated they don't know what a healthy diet means anymore!

Here's some basic steps to a healthy diet that you start to implement right now.

A healthy diet should be balanced and includes all food groups. This means lots of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole-grains, low fat dairy products and of course heaps of water!

A healthy diet should be low in saturated fats, trans fat and cholesterol. Your daily fat intake should come mainly from nuts, fish, and vegetable oils. Try to keep your fat intake to 20-35% of your daily intake of calories for a healthy diet.

Eat lots of different types of fruits and vegetables for the really healthy diet. At least 2 cups of fruit and 2-3 cups of vegetables. It's easy! Limit the number of high processed foods such as biscuits, lollies, chips etc. For a truly healthy diet?it's everything in moderation!

Include a good variety of whole-grains each day for fibre. Keeps you clean on the inside!

A healthy diet is not hard?if you keep it in moderation. Don't overdo any of the food groups?just mix them and make sure you drink plenty of water. For a healthy diet?watch the intake of alcohol. One drink a day for women, two a day for men.
