Recognize your feeling after eating
It is important that you pay attention to how you feel after eating. Healthier foods tend to give a better feeling. While junk food usually leaves uncomfortable and nauseous feelings, and even drained energy.

In fact, a balanced diet consist of fats, vitamins and minerals, proteins, waters, fibers and include carbohydrates sustainable for a healthy body.
Keep eating what you love to eat
A healthy diet does not mean eliminating your favorite foods from the menu list. If you like pizza, you may eat pizza once a week. However, make it balanced by reducing the calories you eat with the number of calories contained in the pizza. If you eat 150 calories of the foods you like in the morning, then balance by reducing 150 calories when you are having lunch or dinner. If you still feel hungry, you can add more fruits and vegetableson your menu.
Don’t ban a particular food
When you ban certain foods, naturally you’ll want those foods more. Start by reducing the portion sizes of unhealthy foods and try not to eat them as often as possible. In the end you will think that it is only your occasional indulgences.
