Eat RIGHT To SHED...This Valentine!!
Following diet on Valentine’s Day is little difficult to everyone. But there is a way to enjoy the food in healthy options. As we know that chocolates and high calories desserts are yummy and tastier than the normal fruits but it’s time to light up your innovation to prepare low calorie yummy foods using the given information. Let’s make your plate colorful.
Make half your plate fruits and vegetables: Choose red, orange, and dark-green vegetables like tomatoes, sweet potatoes, and broccoli, along with other vegetables for your meals. Add fruit to meals as part of main or side dishes or as dessert. The more colorful you make your plate; the more likely you are to get the vitamins, minerals, and fiber your body needs to be healthy. Include fruit 2-4 servings per day and vegetables 3-5 servings per day.
Make 25% of plate for whole grains: An easy way to eat more whole grains is to switch from a refined-grain food to a whole-grain food. For example, eat whole-wheat bread instead of white bread. Read the ingredients list and choose products that list whole-grain ingredients first. Look for things like: "whole wheat," "brown rice," "buckwheat," "oatmeal. 
Choose a variety of lean protein foods to fill remaining 25% of plate: Meat, poultry, seafood, dry beans or peas, eggs, nuts, and seeds are considered part of the protein foods group. Select leaner cuts of ground beef (where the label says 90% lean or higher), or chicken breast.
Switch to fat-free or low-fat (1%) milk: Both have the same amount of calcium and other essential nutrients as whole milk, but fewer calories and less saturated fat. Include low fat milk 2-3 serving per day.
Drink water instead of sugary drinks: Cut calories by drinking water or unsweetened beverages. Keep hydrating yourself by having plenty of water Try adding a slice of lemon, lime, or watermelon or a splash of 100% juice to your glass of water if you want some flavor.
Eating right is important to staying at a healthy weight and keeping an energy balance—the balance between the calories in what you eat and drink, and calories you burn when moving.
