Filed under : Healthy diet

Being fit and healthy is the mantra today and we all strive to be health conscious and sometimes in the quest to achieve a healthy body, we have a herd mentality and believe in the myths of the healthy foods, but in reality are they as healthy as they claim to be?

We should have a scientific approach when it comes to a healthy diet, rather than follow the silly myths and seek unsolicited advice from so called nutrition and health experts.Healthy foods

We all believe that organic foods are healthy as they are produced without synthetic pesticides, and chemical fertilizers, but the fact of the matter is organic foods can be highly processed and may be high in calories, sugar and fats. Hence eating real, whole, unprocessed foods is a wise option.

The multi grain bread you buy daily is made from refined white flour with a few seeds or whole grains added for texture. It is imperative that you should check the labels on the bread and it should read 100% whole wheat or 100% whole grain and if the label says it is wheat flour or enriched bleached flour, then you are definitely being taken in for a royal ride.

A diet cola or a pack of low fat chips are not very different from the regular packs, as packaged foods have a little less fat but more sugar or sodium so the calories intake is almost same for you, and assuming it is low fat, you may tend to eat large portions, hence it is advisable to opt for regular variety and keep your portions small.

A deep study and research into your eating pattern is the first step to understand and analyze your body. This will help you to plan the best meals option in order to remain healthy.
