¡Reduzca el tamaño de sus raciones de comida!

Healthy Chelsea tip #3

¡Reduzca  el tamaño de sus raciones de comida!

Si reducimos el tamaño de nuestras porciones de comida logramos disminuir las calorías que consumimos, además del contenido de grasa, sal y azúcar.  Sin embargo, resulta difícil aprender que significa una ración saludable por cada tipo de alimento. Por ejemplo, ¿sabia Ud. que  un pedazo de carne magra de 3 onzas es  equivalente al tamaño de una baraja de cartas o a la palma de su mano? ¿O que una taza de cereal  equivale al tamaño de su puño?

¡Reconsidere sus bebidas!

Healthy Chelsea tip #2

 

¡Reconsidere sus bebidas!

El pasillo de refrescos de cualquier supermercado nos presenta docenas de opciones. ¡Impresionante!  ¿Qué vamos a probar hoy?  Mejor  no escoja nada y siga para la sección  de productos lácteos y opte por un cartón de leche baja en grasa. La leche descremada es una excelente fuente de proteína, además de contener calcio y vitamina D.

La otra opción saludable, el agua, ¡ni siquiera tiene que comprarla!

Reducing portion size

Healthy Chelsea tip #3

Reducing portion size

Reducing portion sizes – how much we eat for a meal or a snack – is a good way to avoid too many calories, fat, sodium and sugar, but it can be tricky learning what a healthy portion size is.  For example, did you know that 3 ounces of lean meat is equivalent to the size of a deck of cards or the palm of your hand? And 1 cup of breakfast cereal is about the size of your fist?

Rethink your drink

Healthy Chelsea tip #2

Rethink your drink 

The soft drink aisle of any supermarket presents us with dozens of choices! Wow What should we try this time? Well, nothing actually; we’re much better off walking past the soft drink isle to the dairy section for a carton of low fat milk. Milk is an excellent source of protein and calcium and it’s fortified with vitamin D.

The other recommended beverage – water- you already have at home.
