When you’re deciding on what to eat: Think of not only how it’s going to taste, but how healthy it’ll be for you.
Fried foods are delicious, but the fat will contribute to raising your cholesterol, which clogs your arteries, makes you fat, and could cause heart disease. High fat foods like cheese and meats taste wonderful, but they, too, will add weight if consumed in large quantities on a regular basis. Having desserts all the time will probably affect your weight, too – and make you feel bad over time, because they have little nutritional value.
Find things that both taste good, and are good for you. Like sautéed vegetables over rice or pasta. Or creatively designed salads. Fish and fowl, grilled or broiled with delicate seasonings are heart healthy, and treat your palate. Whole grain bread tastes better, cleans your intestines, provides more nutrition and satisfies more than white bread.
