Healthy Diet-- need normal food?
Topic: Healthy Diet-- need normal food?
November 23, 2019 / By Orna Question:
I've been trying to eat healthy (both to lose a few pounds and more importantly, to get clear skin)... I was wondering if anyone had any advice for foods that I can eat. I'm a vegetarian btw.
I've been eating lots of fruits and vegetables, but i seem to develop a slight gag reflex at sour fruits (berries, for example). also, i continue feeling hungry no matter how many fruits/ vegetables I eat until I finally eat something normal (i.e.- pasta). what to do?
my other question is... i want to take vitamins... does anyone have any suggestions? I'm 20.

If you eat just fruits and vegetables you will be hungry. Pasta is OK but whole grains are better. Whole grain pasta, whole grain rice mixes, barley, good whole grain bread, etc.
You also need some protein. Try incorporating beans and lentils into your diet. Soup is a great way to do this. You can also include beans in pasta dishes. Snack on edamame (soy beans). You'll find them frozen in most markets. Nuts are also great in moderation.
Soy based veggie burgers (boca, for example) are great for a quick meal. They are low in fat and calories but high in protein.

they may taste the same to most people (they taste the same to me too) but theyre so processed and not very good for you. they put crap like imitation sweeteners and all those in. if youre on a 'diet', you might as well just eat fruits, vegetables, eggs, fish and chicken all day. theyre way better for you than all those 'diet' foods.
My surgeon said that a children's vitamin is good for anyone. Fruits and veggies are a good start to a diet but need protein in it for sure. Go speak to your doctor about the reflex problem. I do not think these types of questions should be asked on here.

Pasta only gives you a temporary full feeling. The veggies and fruit are actually filling foods. Not sure why you are hungry, but the pasta is loaded with carbs. You might try some whole wheat pastas. They are more healthy.

To superb constipation save on with this methodology: degree your weight. while you're utilising kgs, multiply this extensive type through 50 ml and which will become the whole quantity of water which you ought to drink universal. in case you degree weight in pounds, 0.5 of your weight often is the whole quantity of water in oz.

Take water each time you're thirsty. yet differently could be changing the water each and every time you urinate. sidestep dehydrating aspects like: coffee, tea, mushy drinks, goodies, alcohol, capability drinks, diuretic drugs. those aspects will make your condition worse.

I've done all the researching tried MANY diets-Flat Belly Diet, Special K diet, colon cleansers, the BS plan, acai berry pills, and so many more... I've finally come to the conclusion at 16 that-
1. The more you sacrifice/give, the more you receive(i.e. money, time, effort).
2. Long term or the highway.
3. Healthy diet is what gets you where you want to go, not yo-yo dieting.
