On Monday, your meal was at Domino’s, Tuesday was at Pizza Hut and Wednesday at Taco Bell. One of these days, you are going to realize that it is not okay to eat out every day. If you cannot think well and sleep well with a grumpy stomach aching from acidity, blame it on the fast food. If you don’t pick up healthy habits right on, you are going to struggle with obesity, heart diseases and many other serious ailments very soon. So consider what impact eating out is having on not just your sleep, but your life. Perhaps your dining compatriot has not put on weight and struggling with acne while you’re struggling, well, don’t understate the fact that these things have a way of catching us off-guard. Perhaps her immune system is okay now, but it is definitely for the best that we all maintain a good balance between eating junk and healthy food. You can start by understanding what foods are working out for you. You may not enjoy the change to salads and brown rice but some people really think that it works out well. However, if you are quite uncomfortable, you can start strong by learning to cook. Instead of incorporating light diet meals, you can make large meals consisting of lentils, veggies, and homemade desserts in moderation — all the while gauging the nutrients and calories that make up every meal so you don’t lose track. The best way to enjoy food is to eat mindfully. You don’t have to go into fasting mode. Cooking your own meals at home gives us the freedom to balance healthy and tasty. However, if you really love eating out once or twice a week, just go for it. For nutrient and calorie count, you can see our recipes!
