4 Perfect Eating Plans

Assorted Food and Drinks

  • Have a mixed diet of as many different food as possible.
  • Do not eat the same kind of food everyday because your body will lack of other types of vitamins or minerals.
  • Different food could ensure your chances of getting the wide range of beneficial nutrients and vitamins.
  • Having fast food 3 times a day will increase the chances of contracting several diseases in long term run.
  • People who are on diet, follow a strict dietary food could only bring harm to their health instead of slimming down.
  • Same goes with drinks. Try juices or soups rather than carbonated drinks which contain high in sugar and gas.
  • You should drink 8 glasses of water everyday to ensure your body has enough fluid to keep your body from dehydration and to wash away all the toxin through urination.

2. Regular Meals


  • Eat regular meals and make sure that you have the time to enjoy and digest them.
  • Do not skip your meals by giving excuses like "i don't have time, too busy or no appetite" because this often result in overeating.
  • People who eat at irregular times will run a greater risk of developing gastric ulcer, stomach bloating, insulin resistance known as metabolic syndrome whereby diabetes and cardiovascular disease occurs.
  • Having regular meals include breakfast, lunch and dinner. However, if you have a huge appetite, you could opt for having small meals rather than big ones.
  • It is better and healthier to eat five meals a day compare to three by having small portions and healthy choices at every meal. The reason to this statement is your stomach is in the digesting the food at different interval times. Your body need food to produce energy and increase your metabolism.
  • Eating in a quick manner or at rush hour could result in getting stomach indigestion, burps and also temp to forget about food nutrition.
  • Remind yourself to eat slowly, chew the food at least 4-5 chews before swallow, not walloping them after a few bites.
  • It takes 15 to 20 minutes for your satisfied feeling to your brain even though your stomach is big bloated.
  • Stop eating when you are satisfied, not when you are full. When you are done eating, your stomach should feel empty or not completely full.
  • 70% full is perfect.

I use to juice all the time, when I had the time of course. After a while, I kind of lost my routine to other eating habits. I have a medical condition called "tinnitus" and when I don't eat proper nutrition it gets much worse.

I will try and incorporate your ideas in my eating routines, thanks for sharing, nice article!

Helen Murphy Howell from Fife, Scotland on January 16, 2013:

What a beautiful hub and so well presented - it makes the recipes and food look even more apetising! I agree as well about the carbonated drinks, I don't think most people realise just how much rubbish is put into them.

I love fruit and vegetables but I'm afraid I also have a passion for chocolate, so 2013 is to try and get the balance more in favour of the fruit and vegetables - with such an inspiring and lovely hub as this, it's making it much easier already!!

Great hub + voted up!

nutritionhub on January 08, 2013:

Nice to connect with another healthy eater! I like your point about not consuming sugary carbonated drinks, it's also wise to stay away from diet ones as the sweetners and chemicals used in them can be very harmful to your health. Nice hub

peachy (author) from Home Sweet Home on January 04, 2013:

Thanks for reading. Yup, the brains tell the tummy and other body parts what to do.

healthylife2 on January 04, 2013:

Excellent advice for living a healthier lifestyle. I agree that it takes a while for the brain to realize the stomach is full. I find that if I get enough fruits and vegetables in a day I'm less likely to eat the less nutritious stuff. I also agree that daily water is important to flush out the toxins.

peachy (author) from Home Sweet Home on January 02, 2013:

@sarah

yeap, most of us gobble up the food before properly chewing them. Indigestion occurs. Thanks for reading

Sarah from USA on January 02, 2013:

These are some great suggestions! I agree that one should chew their food properly, that's how people tend to overeat if they eat too fast and now allow the stomach to tell the brain it is full.

Papiya Rana (Jana) from Navi Mumbai on January 02, 2013:

Kari on December 24, 2012:

I agree that easier and quick manner can cause a lot of indigestion problems. I find that eating without distractions like TV helps me focus on my food and chewing. Plus, it just allows you to experience the joy of eating because you can taste the food better and experience of the better.

I also think it's important to eat a variety of food. There's so many foods out there for us to enjoy!

@bea

Yeah, my sister in law always place a basket of apples, bananas and oranges on the dining table. Hence, her children "auto" grab a fruit after dinner. Her kids are always healthy and strong.

Bea on November 04, 2012:

Great tips, especially the one relating to just placing some fruit on the dining table, basic and simple yet sometimes it is the sheer laziness we can all suffer from. It is the case of if it's there in front of you, you just end up eating it!

Nice hub

peachy (author) from Home Sweet Home on November 03, 2012:

@kjforce

Fully agree with you. I will add in yr suggestion in my hub later. Thanks.

kjforce from Florida on November 02, 2012:

peachpurple..interesting hub..very informative..just a suggestion..best way to ingest is take the amount of food you would eat in a day and break it down to every 2-3 hours..this way the stomach is never empty..metabolism will be kept high and body will not gain weight , this helps eliminate any digestive issues..this has recently been suggested by dieticians/physicians...great pics and write...
