healthy meals/lifestyle?

I'm a bit new to eating healthy and living the healthy lifestyle so I was wondering if anyone could give me an idea of what to eat and some good slimming exercises. Like how many meals a day should I eat? and what are some nice healthy meals I could eat and what I should avoid eating? As for exercises I just need to know any that can keep my figure (legs,belly,butt) toned and thin. :)

How to Eat Carbs and Lose Weight

Recommended Answer:

Here's a good low-carb food/exercise plan:Breakfast: Cook 9-grain cereal (from health food store) in water with rolled oats and wheat bran. Make a pot of it on weekends and nuke 1/2 cup each morning. Add low fat milk or yogurt, banana, walnuts and berries. Drink hot Ovaltine. Breakfast should be your largest meal of the day to raise blood sugar level which falls during the night.Lunch: Egg, tuna or turkey ½ sandwich on multi-grain (not just whole wheat) bread with bean or alfalfa sprouts, yogurt, fresh fruit. If you had meat loaf for dinner, bring a meat loaf sandwich on whole grain bread (NO mayo). On cold days, a squatty thermos of hot chili, split peas with ham, or beef stew.Snacks: Fresh (not canned) fruit. Nothing ever from a vending machine. Dinner: salad with white meat chicken and fresh (not canned) veggies: tomatoes, 2 kinds of lettuce, 2 kinds of shredded cabbage, shredded or sliced carrots, alfalfa or bean sprouts, zucchini, green or red peppers, hard boiled eggs, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, tofu, cottage cheese...Instead of dressing, squeeze 1/4 tomato over it. Or homemade bean/vegetable soups; great way to recycle leftovers.Or grilled fish with steamed veggies.Or omelet: In blender, whip together eggs, tofu, cottage cheese, onions, garlic powder. Cook with mushrooms, chopped tomatoes and green or red peppers. Avoid junk food, fast foods, pastries, desserts, anything with sugar (cancer cells feed on sugar), gluten, syrup (even canned fruit in syrup), peanut butter, fat/grease (pork, wieners, chops, bacon, salami, pizza, chips, fries), pasta, potatoes, ramen, popcorn, white bread, rice, canned veggies, ice cream, soda, chips, tobacco, alcohol and coffee. No oil except olive and mac nut. To keep your skin clear, drink water, tea, unsweetened veggie and fruit juice. Join a gym; they have all the equipment and staff to show you how to use it to get the look you want to achieve, but you have to ask them. Much cheaper than buying your own equipment. Go hiking, biking, jogging, bowling, swimming, rowing, jump rope, play tennis, badminton, volleyball, soccer, jumping jacks, lift weights, trampoline? To tone your tummy, do sit ups, push ups, pull ups, leg lifts, butt raises and crunches.For more energy, take Super B complex.

  • Food- over all have healthy meals, eat 3 times a day, one meal should be full of protien for example eggs for breakfast, or chicken for dinner. Snacks, eat fruits. Not to much though. And alow ur self to eat a bit of junk food too like one of the mini milkyway bars. Trust me, its better than binging. For excersizing I'm lazy so what I do is walk my dog, stretch, dance, JUMP ROPE, and I do cheerleading. Try excersizing a little everyday instead of working out a shit load in one or two days. Have fun! Oh and ur carbs,fats and proteins should be all an equal percent. Get the app lose it! to track!
  • Eat real food. The one thing that EVERY diet recommends is to avoid refined carbohydrates and sugars. None of this stuff that's mostly high fructose corn syrup, white flour and added vitamins and chemicals you can't pronounce. Shop the edge of the store: meats, cheeses, dairy, the produce aisle. Whole grain cereals are good, as are beans and lentils. Eggs are healthy and cheap protein. Eat three meals a day, and a light snack before bedtime. Drink water, tea, coffee - natural juice is OK but not the kind with added HFC. For exercise, walking, running, bicycling, and swimming are the best all-over exercises for keeping your muscles toned. "Thin" is the business of the diet, not the exercise.
