When we talk about dieting or seeing a nutritionist, the first thing that comes to mind is weight. It is assumed that a person who’s fat or has a big belly only has to diet or exercise in order to reduce it. But the truth is that everyone must exercise and eat right in order to stay healthy, no matter the weight. You may be thin but not healthy, so focus on staying healthy. Many of the diseases we face are associated with the stomach. So eating right is more important than you think. It can prevent heart disease; help your liver live longer etc.
Here is a list of ways or tips to help you make your diet healthy.

Instead of cutting down all your processed foods at once, avoid eating oil and soda in the beginning which would result in a huge difference.
- Replace white breads
As you know, white breads are the ones made from maida and its regular consumption is harmful, so instead try whole wheat or multi grain breads which in turn are healthy.
