Healthy Eating Habits

  1. Drink lots of water every day.
  2. Drink lots of milk (at least 4 1/2 servings a day). Strong bones and healthy teeth are very attractive!
  3. Limit caffeinated drinks and empty calories: healthy foods with substance will fill you up faster so you won't eat as much.
  4. Find healthy alternatives to between-meal snacks: carrots instead of cookies, popcorn or pretzels instead of chips.
  5. Don't think that something fat-free or diet foods mean that you can eat twice as much.
  6. Don't deprive yourself something you're craving, it's better to eat something unhealthy in moderation that to skip it and then binge later.
  7. Make sure you're eating three balanced, healthy meals a day. Skipping meals can make you feel so hungry that you might overeat at the next one.
  8. Avoid artificial sweeteners, like Nutrasweet.
  9. Take a multi-vitamin each day in addition to a healthy diet. Remember, though, vitamins do NOT replace food.
  10. Even fast food places have healthy options, if available, take a look at a nutrition chart.
