Eating for Wellness: healthy diet effects on well-being


Eating for Wellness: healthy diet effects on well-being

Learn how to eat well. Be sensible and treat yourself well. Your body is a temple and we are what we eat. Two very true statements. Yet nowadays life can be so frantic in the modern world and there is so much going on that most days we may not be able to check our eating pattern. Perhaps we forgot to eat one evening, or overate the next or are not making good choices when it comes to snacks, or are not counting alcohol intake. 

Stability and balance are very important to eating for wellness. Think of yourselves as a machine. It could be well oiled and working at its absolute best, its optimal performance levels, if only it was fuelled with some premium quality of oil. That is the only mindset you need in order to grasp the utmost importance that a well-rounded and consistent nutritional habit can really change yourself, inside out. Here are Thermae Sylla Wellness Hotel’s top ten tips to assimilate into your nutritional patterns that will help you achieve maximum wellness levels. 

The top 10 fundamental eating habits for better living

1. No extremes - Avoid the radical diets. Various no carbs, protein or fasting diets may get you short term results but it disrupts your metabolism in order to do so while none are a sustainable nutritional plan for the long run.

2. A little bit of everything - Don’t create cravings. Starving yourselves for favourite foods could lead to the occasional binge which is much worse than working your eating habits around some of your favourite foods during the week. 

3. Balanced amounts - Don’t overeat. Regardless of if it was considered healthy or not, overeating stretches the lining of your stomach, which in turn begins to demand more food to reach the point of satiation, if done systematically. 

4. Hearty portions - Be sensible. Although you should not over do it, ration sized portions is definitely not the answer either. At least half of your place should be covered in greens (fruits or vegetables) so you don’t go overboard on your other half too much anyway. 

5. Fruits and vegetables - Easy to eat raw, fruits and vegetables are a natural source of fiber, are packed with minerals and vitamins and should be consumed with a rule of thumb of 5 items per day.

6. Drink plenty of water - You can never drink too much water. Think of it as the body’s lubricant helping it not to overheat. An adult should drink about 3-4 litres of water per day to stay hydrated. 

7. Green tea instead of coffee - Why not switch your coffee for green tea? If you can adhere to the change, you’ll find that green tea is slimming since it is a powerful antioxidant.  

8. Less meat, more legumes - Be more mindful of how much meat you consume. Consider switching to wholesome and protein loaded legumes like lentils, chickpeas and beans instead of your usual meat portion. 

9. Check sugar and salt intake - Sugar and salt is hidden in many foods you consume. All the more in processed items both sugar and salt, helping in preserving the shelf life of a snack. Try switching to fresh, raw veggie snacks such as carrots and cucumber. 

10. Avoid fried foods on a regular basis - Frying foods increases their caloric and fat value significantly so you may want to avoid them and maybe look at them only as a treat, every once in a while.
