Eating food is one thing that every living being on this planet does every day to live and sustain their body to meet daily life challenges.
We all love food and relish every bite of it as it satisfies our taste buds, provides us energy, and nourishes our bodies to function optimally and we just love to eat food, right?
But most of us are so much into our work and study that we barely spend time to think that how do we eat food is also important with respect to what you eat, hence in this blog we would discuss about certain mistakes that we make while eating our food and what are the 5 healthy eating habits that we can integrate into our routine for a healthy and holistic life.
1. Chewing your food slowly
-Well since most of us don't pay attention to the speed we eat out food, basically because of the reasons that the food is delicious or we are so hungry or we don't have much time, well whatever the reasons you have, always understands this thing that your food is much better digested and assimilated in your body when you eat in slowly, which is you chew your food thoroughly and slowly so that you are chewing and breaking your food into the best possible size for your digestive system to work upon.
Hence whenever you are eating the food next time, try to chew and bite your food a little slower than usual and feel the difference in your body, this technique would also help you reduce your weight too since you would be eating fewer calories than usual, your hunger would be satisfied with less food as you chew it properly and you would also improve your digestive health, that can surely improve your fitness levels and help you lose some weight.
2. Not watching any tv/another medium while eating
-in the times of Netflix and youtube, we keep our food on the side until we found that perfect episode to partner our food as well, we are sure a lot of people these days do so and we somehow reduce that harmony between our bodies and that food.
Food is much more than a way to satisfy your taste buds and curb your hunger, food is meant to nourish your body, to protect you from disease, to optimize your health, and so on, the relationship between you and food should be little mindful, which is when you are eating the food,
don't distract your mind with any other source of entertainment, just relish every bite and involve yourself a little more with foods while eating, this would again improve your relationship with food and would surely benefit you more if you are eating mindfully.
3. Eating a Balanced diet
-We all have been taught from the schools that the best diet for human beings is a balanced diet, that is comprised of good carbs, protein, and fats along with good vitamins and minerals.
But most of us don't really pay attention to what do we eat, we often tend to eat the foods that are cooked in our household, which is good but one thing that most of the Indian diet lacks is protein, we often consume more carbs and fats in our diet and neglect protein like Arjun Kapoor movies.
Therefore try to reduce your carbs intake a bit and balance it with some good salad, curd/pickle and add some good protein in your diet, like chicken, eggs, paneer, tofu, soya chunks, and whey protein.
and yes anyone can consume whey protein in their diet, whether you workout or not, it's just a convenient source of complete protein, just make sure that you consume a good quality and affordable whey protein like Big muscle nutrition[https://
