Making Small Changes But A Big Difference

Part of eating well is looking at what you're eating right now and making the required adjustments to turn it into something good. While this can initially sound like deprivation, it helps you to sustain a similar pattern of eating but increases what it offers you in terms of nutrition. It's just as much of a change of mind as anything else.

For instance, if you're used to getting a burger for lunch, switching to a tuna or chicken sandwich on granary bread could be a good idea. The idea remains the same – meat, bread, seasoning – and in contrast, if it is a little tasteless, there's a lot you can do with pepper, paprika or a variety of other light spices.
To others, the thought of replacing a candy bar with an apple or a bag of crisps with a handful of fruits and nuts is equivalent to replacing a small puddle swimming pool. If apples aren't for you, however, there's a large variety of fruits filled with flavor and nutrients. None of this means you will never eat candy. In truth, an occasional bar can make it possible to stay on a long-term diet.

Think of the role soft drinks play in your diet, too. If you can swap a couple of soft drinks with a glass of water or fruit juice every week then you'll benefit from the improvement this brings. It might sound dull, but on a hot day, there's just no better taste than an ice-cold glass of water.
