To achieve a fit and healthy body, it is not only important to exercise daily but also to back it up by food that helps in enhancing the process. Everyone is after the hard-body appearance these days, which is only possible if one eats right. A fit body is not hard to achieve. It all begins with giving up temptations and making the smart choices.
Eggs: Whole eggs are imperative for consumption if one wants to achieve their body goals. Eggs are the richest source of nutrients and help in increasing the body’s good cholesterol. Only having the egg whites is not as nutritious. The yolk is the nutrient dense part of the egg and as recent studies have shown is not bad for the body.
Coconut Milk: Coconut milk is filled with healthy saturated fats that help in building up the immune system. Mix it with smoothies, yogurt, or oatmeal, it creates a creamy texture to the dish and makes it healthy too.
Yogurt, Cottage Cheese, Ricotta Cheese: Mixing some yogurt with cottage or ricotta cheese makes a healthy treat whenever one feels hungry. Add some healthy nuts and berries for a delightful flavor and texture.
Walnuts, Pecans, Almonds: These nuts are great resources of healthy fats and are delicious too. It is essential that these be consumed in their raw form as roasting them oxidizes some of the polyunsaturated fats. Even though roasted nuts are also healthy for a fit body, having them raw allows for optimal nutritional results.
Butter: Most people will be surprised at this one. Keep in mind that even butter can be used in preparing meals and be a part of any diet if consumed in a limited amount. It gives a great flavor to the diet food. Remember always to use pasture-fed butter as it will have higher levels of healthy omega-3 fats. Also, experiment with the variety of nut butters (almond, cashew, etc.) available in the market, but use sparingly.
Frozen Vegetables and Fruits: Without a doubt, leafy vegetables such as spinach, root vegetables and any other types of vegetables should be a part of any healthy diet followed. Even frozen vegetables and fruits are a good way to add these to your diet if you cannot frequently shop for fresh.
Dark Chocolate: Snacking on some dark chocolates (i.e. Chocolates having more than 70-75% cocoa content), will take care of one’s sweet tooth without letting them fall off the diet wagon. It still is high in calories, so consumption must be limited.
So, these are only some of the foods that will be beneficial in obtaining a lean and fit body. The trick is to eat healthily and not to fall for enticements. For more information contact Get My Bikini Body at 919-766-2040.
