Have you been struggling with weight? Have you been trying to follow a diet without any success?

The good news for you is that a healthy diet doesn’t require a lot of money nor does it negatively affect your body. For those who live in busy cities like Nairobi, there is a high probability that consumption of processed food (sausages, smokies etc) and deep fried food like Chips/French fries is quite common and part of a daily diet. The easiest way to have a healthy body is by starting a healthy diet that is nutritious and delicious. One that is easy to follow and commit to.

Other eating habits that may be slowing down your journey to a healthy lifestyle are as follows: high intake of nyama choma & alcohol, over-eating, high intake of sugar, smoking and excessive intake of stimulants.

Let not your objective be only about weight loss, but be a healthy lifestyle that will help you enjoy your life.  A healthy diet consists of adequate calories supplied by a heavy load of vegetables, fruits and whole grains; a modest amount of lean protein, nonfat dairy and healthy fats. Try also using the hand-portion rule and a smaller plate to measure the amount of food you take; Fist = 1/2 cup, palm = 3 oz. meat, fingertip = teaspoon, thumb = tablespoon.

Here are some healthy examples that can be found easily and at affordable prices:

  1. Tubers : Arrow roots, Sweet Potatoes, Cassava
  2. Vegetables : Cabbage, Terrere, Spinach, Managu
  3. Protein : Liver(Preferably Beef), White Meat like Chicken and Fish, Beans, Green grams
  4. Milk and Yogurt
  5. Fruits : Bananas etc

Here are some simple tips you can start with:

  1. Eat a cooked meal (perhaps what you had for supper) for breakfast instead of white bread that is loaded with carbohydrates
  2. Replace Sugar with natural Honey
  3. Drink plenty of Clean Water, at least 2 liters a day
  4. Have a piece of fruit with your meals instead of packed juice bought In supermarkets

Eating healthy should be supported by exercise. This will help you get in shape quicker. Why buy a soda and a snack that will cost you at least 100Shs, while the same amount could have bought healthier items like a glass of juice and a healthy snack alternative or fruit salad. Start by analyzing where you spend more money on your daily diet. Cut off food that is not healthy or that which you were taking in large amounts than you should.

A healthy diet contributes to having smooth skin and being at a lower risk of lifestyle diseases. It is also important to visit a nutritionist once in a while who can give you a more comprehensive diet plan.
