5 Easy Ways To Improve Your Diet | Clozette


Sometimes, we get too fixated on pursuing our careers, fulfilling our creative interests and spending time with our loved ones that we neglect one very important thing: our health. Much of one’s personal health is attributed to a wholesome diet, but as people who are exposed to a lot of enticing dishes all the time, we tend to go straight for sinfully good rather than good for you. With that, we've scoured for easy diet tips you can follow so you can take the reins on your health. 


Keep yourself hydrated


Drink lots of water


And we don’t mean with a cup of bubble tea every day. Drinking enough water helps flush out toxins in your body and aids in metabolism. It also acts as an appetite suppressant, which can help prevent overeating and water retention.

Cut down on salt, sugar and fat


Lessen your sugar, salt and fat intake


These three are the main culprits for a whole host of health issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity. You name it, they probably have a hand in it. Monitor your daily intake of these and gradually reduce them to a comfortable level. Food should be seasoned, not saturated.


Make a meal plan


Plan your meals


Planning your meals including snack time gives you purpose during every meal and allows you to ensure you’re getting the right amount of nutrients every day. You’ll enjoy a larger variety of foods and even discover new things to love.

Use produce as a container


Use vegetables as containers


If you’re also into the zero-waste lifestyle, this tip is right up your alley. Make use of vegetables such as bell peppers and mushrooms as vessels for various fillings, creating tasty bursts of flavour with a lot less washing up to do.


80 per cent only 


Try the Okinawan diet


According to Okinawans, who get to live longer lives than most, you should only eat until you are 80 per cent full. It is believed that this practice wards off disease and the onset of ageing.

Before joining Gucci, Tirado was the Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer at Major League Baseball (MLB).
