Diet mistakes you might be making that may harm your health

1. Urge for cravings all the time

Eating to your heart’s satisfaction is important but let your mind also come into play. It’s ok to indulge in your cravings once in a while, but other times you’ve got to learn to control them. Mark specific days or a time gap between two indulgent meals, and make sure to eat healthy rest of the time.

2. Following too strict diet

Then there are also those people who go overboard on the idea of healthy eating. Harvard Health Publishing quotes dietitian Kathy McManus, “Being restrictive is not sustainable. You have to think about looking at this for the long haul. Make it balanced, so you don’t feel deprived.”

3. Cutting down all fats

Fatty foods mean high blood sugar, weight gain, high cholesterol and so on, but you should always remember that there two kinds of fats and if you unravel goods fats, your health will be benefitted in the long run. Unsaturated fats found in nuts, seeds, mustard oil, olive oil, cheese etc. help better cardiovascular health.


4. Saying no to carbs

A carb-less diet is just a myth. You may lose weight and your health simultaneously. Carbohydrate is an important macronutrient that your body needs, preferably in small quantities. You don’t want to end up with low blood sugar levels. So do get your daily carbohydrate fix but you should always limit it.
