Nutritional Foods for Weight Loss

Eating a lot of food without checking the nutritional value can pose a danger to your weight and health.  A customized nutrition program in Iowa City at Washington Street Wellness Center can help patients aiming for weight loss maintain an ideal healthy body.

The phrase “you are what you eat” is true. How can you trim down and be healthy if you are not mindful of the nutritional value or the right proportions of your diet?  You are supposed to keep track of the calories in your daily diet.  You should have a proper daily nutritional plan consisting of diet meals to keep you strong and healthy throughout the day and attain your ideal weight.  Eating right means eating foods that contain the right combinations of nutrients and other healthful substances.

Intelligent food choices such as fruits and vegetables should be a part of our daily dietary plans.  Better yet, keeping these food staples in your dietary plan is not only good for your health but at the same time these can keep you slim and shave off the extra pounds:

  • Beans and Nuts
  • Brown Rice
  • Oats
  • Avocados
  • Blueberries
  • Grapefruit
  • Bananas
  • Oranges

At Washington Street Wellness Center, we provide each of our patients a suitable dietary plan to meet their needs and to help with their healthy goals.  It is always important to maintain an ideal weight to avoid the risky diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes.  To maintain an ideal weight, it is also ideal to balance our diet and couple it with a regular exercise.  Eating intelligently with the right food proportions and being mindful of the nutritional value can help you to eliminate the excess weight of your body.
