Denver Health and Wellness: Five Keys To Eating Right

For many individuals, the beginning of a new year comes with resolutions surrounding their personal well being. From starting a diet to exercising more often and everything remotely associated with either, the calendar turning over often correlates with beginning some type of plan. However, after a few weeks, many people struggle continuing with their new found commitment to health and fitness. Depending on your personal goals, this can be detrimental to achieving realistic results, but there are options to consider if you wish to continue focusing on your health without feeling constrained by a diet and exercise regimen.

Global weight loss products and services markets are projected to continue growing, generating well over $250 billion each year. Yes, that's billions and expected increases over the next few years are only going to push that number even higher. The good news is, there are some simple keys to eating right which can help you maintain or even lose weight by following a few easy tips and tricks. Forget about counting calories, cutting out certain foods, or eating what you may not like by following these words of wisdom for an overall healthier, and easier to maintain, lifestyle.  

Eat A Variety

Don’t get bogged down in a diet requiring the same items for multiple meals. It’s better for you to mix up what you are eating and intake a variety of different foods. From meats and cheeses to vegetables and fruits, constantly mixing, matching, and trying new things can help the best.

Limit Sugar

Limiting added sugars and any processed foods with a high content will help you feel better. In addition, don’t forget about drinks when thinking about your own sugar intake. Soda, alcohol, juices, and lattes all have considerable amounts of sugar in them, indicating consumption should be limited.


Individuals who plan their meals ahead of time are often more easily able to eat in a better manner than those who don’t. Doing this can also help avoid eating too many meals out in restaurants or fast food chains, which often offer less nutritional value and more unhealthy options.

Portion Control

Another key component to consider when hoping to take better care of oneself, is to take note of portion control. At restaurants this may be a bit easier, but even at home, remembering to limit second helpings or to not always add a desert can help improve your eating habits.

Drink Water

Increasing water intake can also benefit individuals as they elect to embark on a new eating method. This can also help some limit their food consumption as water can be a filling component added with any meal.
