Eating healthier is something that everyone should do no matter if they are already at a healthy weight or not, but doing so is difficult, especially if you are like most people and have a busy lifestyle where grabbing a hamburger at the local fast food restaurant is the most time you can spare. However, there are some ways that even a busy person can eat healthier, and they don’t require a great deal of time or money. Some of these may seem simple and obvious to someone trying to live a healthy lifestyle, but you would be surprised how many times the easy stuff is overlooked.
First, drink lots of water. You have probably heard that eight glasses of water is the right amount of water to drink, referring to eight ounce glasses of water, but what you may not know is that you are supposed to drink another 64 ounces of water daily for each 25 pounds overweight you are. So, if your optimal weight is 150 pounds, but you weight 200, you are actually supposed to be drinking 192 ounces of water every day, which comes out to be around 24 glasses of water. If you are using 1 liter soda pop bottles filled with water that comes to around 6. Water is very healthy for you, keeping your body well oiled and all of the parts in working order. Also, if you are dieting, water helps you to eat less because it helps fill your stomach.
