You Are What You Eat – Can a Better Diet Lower the Risk of Disease

There are plenty of occasions to compromise on healthy food, especially when the stress levels are high. However, over time the daily intake of various unhealthy food items can lead to various health-related issues, such as heart diseases or diabetes. Read More

Fine-tuning yourself with a balanced and healthy diet will affect your inner being as well as your body. As the saying goes – you are what you eat. Here are a few quick tips for a balanced diet. 

Control Your Portion Size
How much you eat is just as important as what you eat. Keep track of the number of servings you eat. Restricting yourself to a small plate or bowl can be helpful. 

Remember that our intestine is the size of two palms put together. Hence monitor the amount of food you intake. 

Reaching for Healthier Options
While junk food is easily available, it does not do much to quell your hunger for long. Healthier snacks will actually leave you sated and full. Try the following: Sliced snacks, dried or fresh fruits

  • Switch to whole grain versions of rice, pasta, flour, and other such food items
  • Include calcium-rich food, like low-fat yoghurt without added sugar or simply fat-free milk
  • Use healthier oils like canola, vegetable, and olive oil
  • Use margarine instead of butter
  • Bake or grill some of your food instead of frying it 

Physical Activity
Moderate exercise will lower your risk of heart diseases by 30-50%*, and get your heart pumping the right way. A daily 30-minute is all it takes to maintain a healthy heart.
Although fitness and a healthy lifestyle are good measures, securing yourself with health insurance plans will protect you from unfortunate surprises.
