Tips for staying healthy

There are small changes a person can make to his or her eating habits that can result in effective weight loss. Specialist nutritionists suggest the following pointers: * Always visit the supermarket armed with a list, make sure you have had something to eat before you go and try to avoid buying prepackaged foodstuffs or ready-to-eat meals. * Once at the table, decide what you will eat beforehand, do not succumb to the temptation of tasting everything that is laid out and take a small break during the course of the meal. * If you’re out and about, try to eat in calm surroundings, take a break from work so that you have sufficient time to eat at a leisurely pace and try to avoid foods that are high in fat content.
