Making Small Changes But A Big Difference

Part of eating healthy is looking at what you're eating right now and making the necessary changes to turn it into something healthy. While this may initially seem like deprivation, it allows you to maintain a similar eating pattern but improve what it gives you in nutritional terms. It is about a mindset shift just as much as anything else.
For example, if you're used to having a burger for lunch, it might be a good idea to switch to a tuna or chicken sandwich on granary bread. The principle is the same — meat, bread, seasoning — and if it seems a little tasteless in comparison, there's a lot you can do with pepper, paprika or a variety of other light spices.
For many people , the idea of replacing a chocolate bar with an apple or a packet of crisps with a handful of fruit and nuts is equivalent to replacing a swimming pool with a small puddle. However, if the apples are not for you, there is a wide range of fruit that is packed with taste and nutrients. And none of this means that you can never eat chocolate again. In fact, an occasional bar may make it easier to do the diet long-term.  

Think about the part that soft drinks play in your diet, too. If you can replace a few soft drinks with a glass of water or fruit juice every week, you will benefit from this change. It may seem boring, but on a hot day there is no better taste than an ice-cold glass of water.
