Getting back to basics

Nutrition does not have to be a terribly complicated topic. There are some very simple, back to basic tips that everyone can follow quite easily in order to get a healthier diet with better nutrition.

Cutting out junk and processed foods is one very simple tip, as is simply eating less. If you want to tackle the issue of your nutrition head-on, you need to get a handle on the size of your portions and cut back on how much you are putting onto your plate. If you are eating out, you can try skipping appetizers or just eat half of the meal and take the rest home. You should also cut down on the number of times you eat out at restaurants because the portions are much bigger than when you eat at home and the food tends to be higher in sodium. You are also more likely to be tempted to overindulge when eating out, while at home you can make healthier choices and plan your meals in advance, as well as having greater control over the quantity and the quality of ingredients.
