A healthy diet is one of those things that people know they should have, but do not implement. There are many reasons for not eating healthy, as often unhealthy foods are easier to prepare, or take no preparation at all. However, a bad diet can lead to a host of negative health consequences. These negative health consequences often rob people of their wellness and health. So, what are some ways to make your diet healthier, and in turn reap the benefits in both your health and your sense of wellness?

Eat Less, Move More: Often people want a magical pill or some type of fad diet to help them lose weight. While these can sometimes work, at least for a short while, they are often not sustainable in the long run. One thing you can do right now that will help your health is to eat less and move more. This is the fundamental step that should be done before trying out some diet fad. Simply eat less and move more.

This does not need to be too hard or complicated. If you eat three pieces of toast for breakfast, eat two. If you normally order a large side at a restaurant, order a medium or small one. Simply make a point to eat less then you normally would at meals. Moving more does not need to be overly complicated either. Find little ways to implement movement, such as using the stairs rather than the elevator, or going on short walks throughout the day.

By eating less and moving more, you are lowering your calorie count throughout the day and burning more calories by moving more. Before trying out any specific diet, try simply moving more and eating less.

Cut Out the Bad, Put in the Good: This should be the next step in building a healthy diet. This is especially true if you are currently making unhealthy food choices. Try to cut out food and beverages that have empty calories. An example of a beverage that has empty calories would be most sodas. They do not have much if any nutritional value, and thus are not very useful for your body. Try instead to eat more nutrient rich food. Often this comes in the form of plants, as they often have a variety of vitamins and are typically low in calories. Supplementing your bad food, a.k.a empty calorie food, with good food, or nutritionally dense food, can be a great way to make sure you are getting your micro-nutrients and can help you feel great.

Jeffry Schneider implements a healthy diet into his lifestyle. After reading The Blue Zones Solution, which describes the health habits of areas where people live the longest in the world, he decided to implement a pescatarian and plant-based diet. This essentially means that he eats primarily plants with some fish, specifically wild-caught salmon, and eats pork and beef rarely and only for very special occasions. Schneider notes that in the book, The Blue Zones Solution, people typically eat a more plant-based diet as well. These are some of the ways that Schneider tries to implement a healthy diet into his lifestyle.
