Making Small Changes But A Big Difference

Part of eating well is looking at what you eat now and making the adjustments required to make it a healthier thing. While this can initially sound like deprivation, it helps you to sustain a similar eating pattern but to enhance what nutritionally it offers you. It is about a paradigm change almost as much as anything else.
For instance, if you're used to getting a burger for lunch, moving to a tuna or chicken sandwich on granary bread could be a good idea. The idea remains the same – meat, pasta, seasoning – and in contrast, if it looks a little tasteless, there's a lot you can do with pepper, paprika or a variety of other light spices.
For several, the thought of replacing a chocolate bar with an apple or a bag of crisps with a handful of fruits and nuts is tantamount to replacing a small puddle swimming pool. If apples aren't for you, however, there's a large variety of fruits filled with flavor and nutrients. And none of that means that you will never again eat chocolate. An occasional bar can actually make it easier to stick to the diet over the long term.

Think about the role soft drinks are playing in your diet too. If you can swap a couple of soft drinks with a glass of water or fruit juice every week then you'll benefit from the change this brings. It might sound dull, but on a hot day there's really no better taste than an ice-cold glass of water.
