Putting The Healthy Routine In Cruise Control

healthy routineWhen one of your main concerns is improving your health, the toughest hurdles to get over will likely be changing the amounts of food you eat and getting a consistent form of exercise.

Even though these aspects of the weight loss process may not seem terribly difficult, understand that the number one reason why people fail in achieving their health and fitness goal is that they’re not willing to stick with a daily calorie amount that is appropriate for their body and workout regularly.

This is why in order to get your healthy routine to a point where it’s basically worry-free and in cruise control, you have to get your entire day running smoothly from morning to night.

Unfortunately one of the easiest things to do is to overeat. It’s so simple especially when we’re faced with numerous eating moments each and every day, meaning there are many opportunities to take in too many calories.

Aren’t Salads Healthy?

aren't salads healthySo you opted to eat a salad for lunch today. That is definitely a great improvement from the traditional double bacon cheeseburger, french fries, and soda combo that many choose to get as a lunch option. However before you get too excited about this one healthy decision, let’s take a closer look at what often happens when folks think they’re eating healthy.

Many assume that if they eat a salad for one meal, they can proudly proclaim at the end of that day they ate healthy, but that can be far from the truth. Often “extras” are often tacked on with this healthy option and that’s when the downward spiral begins.

Using the salad as an example, it’s not uncommon to have people add double meat or cheese, extra croutons, not to mention selecting the unhealthiest of dressings such as Caesar or Ranch and putting far too much of it on the salad. Did you know that only 4 tablespoons of Caesar dressing has a whopping 300 calories? More than this amount is commonly used and is the main reason how a salad can often end up with a large calorie total.

Be aware of this the next time you’re automatically thinking aren’t salads healthy and hopefully you’ll keep it truly as a nutritious choice.

Exercise plays a very important role in the weight loss process.
