Amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life, eating out is sometimes the only option for us. Thailand has great choices of delicious foods at all price points from street food to fine dine restaurants. Both have the options of being healthy and unhealthy for us, but we must choose wisely.
Our lifestyle may force us to eat according to our schedule and may be not the healthiest choice. We can all agree that most important factors when talking about weight is how much food we eat and how much calories we expend from physical activity and exercises though out the day. Many people choose to limit the calorie intake to control weight. However, we also need to consider the daily intake of the macronutrients (protein, carbohydrate, fat) and micronutrients (fruit, vegetable) or the 5 food groups as well as the cooking process and ingrediants.
To control weight, you should balance your daily intake according to your goals.
Most of our daily basis, we should choose lean protein e.g. fish, chicken breast, pork tenderloin, complex carbohydrate e.g. brown rice, whole wheat, a good source of fat and varieties of fruit and vegetables. Avoid hydrogenated fat and minimize sugar, sodium, and alcohol consumption.
