Living healthy and eating a healthy diet is different from associating it with weight loss.
Diet is always associated with weight loss. Though there are different types of diets that are ideal for different health desires. There are some other diets that are considered for a healthy life.

Women need to focus more on their fitness and health which they never give much attention to due to their family and profession.
Health isn’t similar to weight loss! We are talking about stay fit and active.
Women should focus on maintaining emotional and physical wellbeing, balanced and improved health and nutritional diets.

Go for low carbs
Eating low carbohydrates can help in improving glucose levels. Also, low carbohydrates are beneficial for individuals who are diabetic or prediabetic.
One great example of a low carbohydrate diet is a keto diet. Keto diet includes only 50g of carbs in a day. But it is advised that you can eat 120 to 130g of carbs in a day if you feel maintaining a strict keto diet is tough.
Start adding spices and herbs
Once you improve your food flavor you will eventually end up willing to eat full and won’t leave anything on your plate. We mostly end up adding salt, butter or high-fat marinades. Adding gingers and turmeric will help you in fighting with inflammation.
Spices like cinnamon won’t increase your blood sugar and will help in balancing it. You can also add oregano, pepper, and garlic for having more flavors and healthy taste.
Enough protein intake
Protein is very important for every woman. Add chicken breast, eggs and fish to your plates. Protein sources are not always meat and other non-vegetarian food.
There are many plant-based foods like legumes and fresh vegetables that are rich in protein.
Note: Aim for having proteins that are low in carbohydrates and saturated fats and high in nutrition.
Add fiber to your meal bowls
Adding fiber to your bowls can help you in lowering LDL cholesterol, which helps in preventing your blood sugar levels to rise.
Pasta salad is something that will add fiber and incredible taste.
Healthy fats are good!
Fats are not always unhealthy and bad they are good too. Good fats make you manage your weight and also makes you feel full. Healthy fats help in lowering rates of heart disease and stroke.
Healthy fats help in reducing inflammation and joint pain. Use olive oil, avocado oil and MCT oil these are rich in healthy oils.
Do not skip any meal
Eat 3 times a day. Don’t let yourself stay too hungry all day. If you get too hungry and skip any of your meals you will be targeted by acidity.
Having every meal is healthy and will increase your energy and make you active throughout the day.
Using an app can improve your health
Use some app that can keep a track record of what you eat and what time you had your meal. An app can alert you if you not eating anything in a day or overeating.
An app can change your behavior towards your dietary plan.
Eat what you want
If you don’t want to eat what is there in front of your plate then you may not eat it. You will feel satisfied only when you eat what you want to eat.
Satiety is a must in what you eat otherwise you won’t end up eating anything and will eventually skip your meal. So you can go for a cheat day to eat what you want to eat.
