Healthy Diet for Women: An Idea

When it comes to planning a healthy diet, Livestrong.com mentions

“The key to successful weight loss….is to eat fewer calories than your body needs.”

This means you can continue to have all the foods you love, but in smaller portions. The website also mentions that according to the American Dietetic Association,

“a well-balanced diet is the key to good health. A healthy diet for women should include a variety of nutrient-rich foods from each of the food groups. Women need to eat at least 3 servings of whole-grains a day.”

Also, check what you eat. Sometimes, lesser consumption of fatty foods may not lead to weight loss. According to Webmd.com,

“It's true that a diet high in fat can lead to weight gain. But it takes more than just eating low-fat foods to lose weight. You must also watch how many calories you eat. Remember, extra calories even from fat-free, trans fat-free, and low-fat foods get stored in the body as fat. Many times people replace high-fat foods for high-calorie foods, like sweets, and gain weight rather than lose weight.

To lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you eat. You can achieve this goal by exercising more and by eating less fat and calories.”
