It's Eid al-Adha time! Aka all meat lovers’ favorite holiday, which means it’s time to indulge in a variety of dishes and delicious food in the company of your friends and family. But before diving into the feast, let's give you some easy tips to help you eat healthier during the celebration and avoid overeating during the holiday.
 
1. Prioritize lean protein
Try to include and start with lean protein in every dish such as grilled fish, lean beef, yogurt, eggs, or grilled chicken breasts. Eating protein first will help you feel full for longer throughout the day, and will aid in controlling your blood sugar additionally, if you strength train, it will greatly help you in muscle growth.
 
2. Get your fill of fiber
Incorporate greens, whole grains, fruits, and seeds into your meals as much as possible. Eating plenty of fiber will not only help you digest better and is good for your overall health, but will lower your cholesterol levels, and reduce the risks of suffering from chronic diseases like cancer or heart diseases in the long run.
 
3. Focus on portion control
Portion controlling tricks your mind into thinking that you are full, and it actually works. All you will need is to assort your meals into smaller plates, also aim to fill half your plate with vegetables or fruit and fill a quarter of your plate with carbs.
 
4. Avoid Processed Food
While a cheesy pepperoni pizza or a juicy burger seems like the perfect meal, having them regularly will lead to increasing the risks of chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, disrupting your digestion, and even more. Limit your processed food intake as much as you can and eat more nutrient-packed food.
