By now you’re probably well aware that grains are a major source of your daily calories.
But do you know how to avoid them in your diet?
Here are seven tips to make sure you’re eating the right type of grain.
Don’t over-think it: You can make your grain diet more healthful by limiting the amount of grains you eat and eating smaller amounts of grains.
Start with smaller grains: While it’s a good idea to avoid grains like barley and quinoa, it’s important to start small.
Start by adding a handful of chopped whole wheat or brown rice to your daily diet, or by adding in a few dried beans.
Don´t over-eat: You might be tempted to eat a big meal and binge on everything.
If you’re on a low-carb diet, this can backfire.
The more grains you add to your diet, the less likely you are to overeat, and the less energy you’ll burn, so you need to be careful with how much you eat.
Eat more vegetables: When you add in vegetables like kale and broccoli, you’ll get a lot of nutrition, which helps keep you fuller longer.
And you’ll feel fuller longer too, because the nutrients in these vegetables will help balance your digestive system.
Don�t overdo it: The more you eat, the more likely you’ll end up with a hangover, so don’t overdo things like eating too many fruits or vegetables, or trying to eat something at once.
Donât limit yourself: It’s good to be flexible and adjust your diet depending on what you need and want, so that you can stay on track with your health.
You can always eat a bit more, but make sure to stay on top of your diet.
Be smart: The best way to avoid over-eating is to eat more fruits and vegetables, and be mindful of how much weight you gain and how much your body stores.
