Life is better with a bit of color, and your diet is too. As you choose foods to enjoy, look for color. We’re not talking about artificially colored sweets, but rather fruits and vegetables of every color of the rainbow. Fruits and veggies are the building blocks of a healthy diet. Enjoy them in abundance and often. Fresh, frozen, and canned fruits and vegetables are all great additions to your healthy diet.
There Are No Good or Bad Foods
A healthy diet doesn’t have to mean never eating a cookie again. When it comes to healthy eating, there are no good or bad foods. Some foods can be consumed in abundance, while others should be saved for the occasional indulgence. Healthy eating is about finding balance.
Cut back on higher-calorie comfort foods or enjoy them in smaller portions.
Watch for Added Sugars and Salts
Make sure you’re reading the labels to know what you’re eating. Many foods contain hidden sugars and salts. While sugar and salt can be part of a healthy diet, it is essential to know what you’re consuming so that you can make informed choices about your diet. Canned foods are notorious for being high in sugars or salts. Look for lower sodium options of soups, vegetables, and fruits that are canned in water or juice, not sugary syrups.
Don’t Drink Your Calories
It’s easy to exceed your daily calories if you’re drinking calorie-heavy beverages. Juices and sodas often are calorie-dense and don’t fill you up. Drink more water and unsweetened tea and less soda and juice to cut back on calories and maintain a healthy weight after liposuction.
Diet is essential to maintaining your weight after liposuction, but so is exercise. Diet and exercise work together to help maintain a healthy weight.
Exercise isn’t just good for your health. Working out has benefits that can improve and enhance your liposuction results since it builds muscle and enhances muscle tone. Defined muscles take liposuction results from thin and flat to sculpted and defined. Your flat tummy will look better with some abdominal definition.
Eat right, but don’t forget to exercise too!
