Most of the people these days have got habituated to shopping in a supermarket. They pick up whatever they see without caring much about what they are picking up and where it is going and how it is going to affect them.
However, it isn’t that people are not aware of what is healthy and what is not, it’s just that people drift towards the taste rather than paying attention towards how healthy it is. It is also often seen that many people succumb to dieting when they have an occasion coming up.
Dieting is nothing but minimizing the intake of food and beverages to rapidly lose weight. This process can also backfire because although it helps for the limited period of time, it also makes the body weak and more prone to diseases.
It is believed that most people choose their kind of foods – healthy or unhealthy due to various social and emotional factors. In contrast to dieting, healthy eating is linked to a healthy living which does not give way to a crash dieting or just dieting when it is extremely necessary to lose weight. Healthy eating involves eating different kinds of foods that are low in fat and rich in proteins and carbohydrates. It is recommended that the food intake should be in small quantities but should suffice the hunger till the next meal and retain the energy levels.
Dieting on the other hands makes the person lose out on energy levels, become lethargic and weak. It should not be that food that contains oil or fats and calories should be completely avoided but there needs to be a time and a limit set for them.
To conclude, healthy eating should be made a lifestyle. It should be done just for the sake but should be enjoyed and done with a responsibility for oneself. It is not necessary that eating healthy means eating plain tasteless food, but it means eating delicious and realistic food in small quantities with the enough amount of nutrition that keeps the body fit and strong.
