Well, a sound body creates a sound mind and a sound mind creates a successful individual, which is going to affect a society. Nowadays people are doing a number of things that they should not perform and must avoid to get healthy. Frankly speaking, we all love eating and we find absolute pleasure in eating our desired item especially fast food. Sometimes, we become extremely health conscious that we cross the limit of being healthy and being over-healthy. Here, I am going to share 12 habits with you that are healthy for a person but somehow they are harming our goal of losing excess weight. Let us start –
- You are focussing more than required
A bigger mistake people do during their weight loss program is that after/before any exercise or eating anything, they confirm their weight and hope to shred some pounds, which is not the right method at all.
- Having dipping bread
Dipping bread, is the favourite of every individual, if it is packed with oil and vegetables, it is not a good idea but if that is, packed with something healthier like hummus, it is good but we usually ignores that we have hoisted the calories number too.
- Having a lot of fruits
Yes, eating fruits in excess can also sabotage our dream to shred weight from our body. Having smoothie for health purpose can also increase the weight as it contains sugar and contained with much of calories. Therefore, our fruit intake must be, based upon our need and not on our lust.
- Consumption of natural sugar
When we hear, words like ‘natural’, ‘organic’ and ‘non-GMO’, we feel reliable about our product and we start consuming it without thinking for other second. However, natural sugars like honey and maple syrup add a fixed amount of sugar into our body. Therefore, when eating them we must be extra conscious and not run in the eating desire.
- Utilizing red wine with the food
“Excess of everything is a bad thing” and this goes the same with the red wine. It usually increases our hunger in a secretive manner and adds anti-oxidants in our body. We must consider in our mind that liquid material adds good quantity of calories too.
- Must know the difference between good and bad foods
At the time of weight loss, we usually forget that the food, which we paints as good can also be the bad one. When we over eat those so-called ‘good foods’, it performs the same thing in our body that bad one do. A healthy diet is the one, which you can uphold for the life, hence keep on proper portions when we are eating them.
- You are avoiding ‘potato’
Since our birth, we are hearing a thing that is ‘eat a rainbow’ and we love to enjoy coloured stuff. We mostly avoid white and especially ‘potato’ – one medium potato has more calories and potassium than two bananas, but we eat bananas more and avoid potato as we have the phobia that it will make us fat.
- Eat when you feel hungry
Eating at regular intervals is a vital thing as it maintains the blood sugar levels. However, eating breakfast at eight, lunch at 12 and dinner at six is not an idea, which I will suggest you. Yes, it is the traditional method but you must eat, whenever you are feeling hungry that will bless your good health.
- You are consuming excess juice
Although having a glass of fresh juice is valuable but it can also harm our health. It takes a number of fruits to fill 8 to 10 ounces of glass and it sums up the number of calories. However, the calories must be coming from a healthy source but having excess of that can stop the weight loss.
- Desire for Salad
It is advantageous to eat salad for the health but consuming salad and adding toppings, nuts, avocado and chicken pieces, supersizing it, can increase the calories number to a big level. It will deteriorate our plan of achieving fitness.
- Cooking with olive oil
I never believed on this point before, but this is the truth, cooking with excess olive oil, is a thing to avoid. It usually adds the amount of calories that makes it harsh to intake.
- Being hardcore vegetarian
I must say, protein is an important source for weight loss as it helps to control our muscle mass. When we do not consume protein by any source, we are avoiding the tendency to lean our muscles. Hence, intake of protein is necessary.
