    Drink more water. Let’s start with something simple. An adult must drink one liter or more of water each day, making 6 glasses of 25cl of water. Diuretics like coffee or tea do not count! Water keeps the body at the right temperature and eliminates the toxins inevitably produced by your metabolism and industrial life. You will and you will automatically feel healthier.

    • Water cleans your skin, helps your kidneys function, helps control your appetite and allows you to be more energetic. [1] If being thinner, more dynamic and having more beautiful skin are not motivations, what are you asking?
    • Drinking plenty of water will also prevent you from drinking other drinks, such as sodas and very high calorie juices. The body gets almost nothing and after consuming hundreds of calories, you will still be hungry. If you need to taste, squeeze a lemon or a lime or pour a little bit of pure fruit juice into your water.

    Breakfast lunch. A light and healthy breakfast will allow you to enjoy all the benefits of this first meal. If your breakfast is made up of protein and whole grains, it will allow you not to crack before lunch. Research has shown that people who skip breakfast actually tend to eat more in the course of the day! So to control your appetite, do not skip this first meal, because this is really the most important!

    • Instead of eating two chocolate donuts and a coffee that contains more cream than anything else, choose eggs, fruit, skim milk, fresh orange juice or tea. The longer your breakfast is healthy you will feel energetic throughout the day and the less you will need to eat later in the day. [2]

    Eat healthy throughout the day. Fruits and vegetables should cover half of your plate at all meals. [3] Add lean protein, 0% dairy and whole grains. Your body might wonder for some time why you are depriving it of cookies, but once you have passed this stage, you will feel better than ever.

    • Remember that not all fats are bad for your health. Healthy fats are found in fatty fish such as salmon and tuna, avocados, nuts and olive oil. These elements are essential to a balanced diet.

    Eat at the right time. The ideal time to eat a healthy and easy-to-digest evening meal would be between 5pm and 6pm. It is best to avoid nibbling late at night because you would consume unnecessary calories and disturb your sleep. If you really need this midnight snack, just unsalted nuts, seeds and fruits and vegetables.

    • Nibbling is not necessarily bad for health if you know that snacking. In fact, eating ‘constantly’ can prevent you from feeling deprived and taking a third piece of cake when the opportunity arises. Just be careful to snack in moderation. [4]

    Spend meat for a while. If you had not noticed, the meat did not really play a part in what we talked about before. Being vegetarian is a good way to reduce your caloric intake and consume a lot of vitamins and minerals. However, it must be done correctly. If it is a good idea to eliminate red meat from your diet, be sure to consume a wide variety of other foods, from fruits to vegetables, from legumes to dairy products, so that your diet is balanced.

    • A diet rich in fiber is easy to hold without meat. It has been proven that fibers lower cholesterol, control the amount of sugar in your blood, improve digestion and help you eat less in general. It is recommended to consume 30 g of fiber per day for men and 21 g for women. After 50 years, this increases to 38 g for men and 25 for women. Fruits and vegetables (with skin) are good sources of fiber, as are whole grains and legumes. [5]

    Read the labels. It is often said that processed foods are bad for health and that is absolutely true! However, you will need to learn to differentiate these foods from each other: this bag of frozen broccoli is not as bad as this canned pasta gratin. In short, avoid processed foods as much as possible. If you can not, read the labels and watch for added items such as sugar, salt and fat.

    • Foods stored in the closet usually contain added salt, “-ose” substances and trans-saturated fats. If you spot these items on the label (especially in large quantities), avoid the product. You can find a healthier alternative. Crack for this product is not worth it!
      • The label does not indicate trans fat does not mean that the product does not contain trans fat. Is not that funny? Negligible quantities can legally be ignored. If you see hydrogenated vegetable oil on the list, you are facing one of the main culprits. [6]
