10 Ways To Be Healthier With Lesser effort
1. Eat fruit instead of candy.
Candy is sweet because it contains processed sugar, usually high-fructose corn syrup. Fruit is sweet because it contains natural sugar, but it’s still good for you because it’s also rich in fiber, which helps you digest the sugar more slowly.
2. Drink your coffee black.
Studies suggest that coffee is good for you — some even suggest that drinking three to five cups a day could lead to a longer life. Eliminating milk, cream, sugar, or flavorings will cut calories and maximize coffee’s health benefits. And don’t worry — drinking black coffee won’t make you a psychopath!
3. Substitute your white bread with whole wheat.
Whole-wheat bread is higher in fiber than regular white bread, and fiber fills you up and helps with digestion by slowing down the absorption of sugars.
4. Drink plenty of water.
You’ve heard this before, but the benefits of staying hydrated are numerous, from keeping your body fluids balanced to having more energy. Some fitness experts even claim you can lose weight if you drink water before every meal.
5. Always Take the stairs.
This is an easy way to burn calories and tone leg muscles when you can’t find time to squeeze in a traditional workout.
