Heart Smart Foods
Smart food choices is an essential part of your weight loss and fitness journey. The right foods can help speed up your weight loss, fuel your body with daylong energy, and increase your overall health.
The World Health Organization makes the following 5 recommendations:
Try to burn as much energy as you eat, and try to eat as much energy as you burn, as a healthy weight is a balance between those two.
Increase consumption of food producing plants, particularly fruits, vegetables, legumes, whole grains and nuts.
Limit intake of fat and oil, and avoid saturated fats, which are those that become solid at room temperature such as coconut oil and all animal products including basically meat, dairy and egg. Prefer unsaturated fats, which remain liquid at room temperature instead, and which are found in almost all the plant based oils and foods. Eliminate trans-fatty acids.
Limit the intake of granulated sugar– A 2003 report recommends less than 10% simple sugars.
Limit salt/sodium consumption from all sources and ensure that salt is iodized.
These Heart Smart Foods can help you EAT MORE and WEIGH LESS, all by revving your calorie burn and curbing cravings.
