The way you conduct your dieting habits can do wonders for your self body-image and overall health in the future or it might forever ruin your hopes and dreams for looking gorgeous and feeling wonderful. Everyone is dieting today, whether they're doing it knowingly or not. We all know we should eat much more broccoli and more raw fruits and vegetables, while eating less fat.

For the duration of our lives we do try to stay

healthy, but it's not easy. There are so many conflicting stories on what's good and what's not when it relates to healthy foods and you can easily find yourself in a dieters' Highway to Hell.

The important aspect when it comes to dieting is to utilize common sense. This wouldn't allow you starve to death with sufficient of food all-around you and it would likely make you feel you've eaten too much when you give in to your eating cravings!

The next thing is to understand your body needs proteins, fats, sugars, fibers, vitamins and minerals during all meals if you are to feel satisfied with what you've recently ate. Typically, every time you eat, your plate should have protein, a little fat and a little fibrous mass to ensure that you feel full.

This takes planning. You must admit it, it's a easier to reach out for a bag of junk food than to plan a balanced meal.

This also means if you plan to replace Ruffles with a fruit snack, you won't feel great about it and you feel full. Eat an apple followed by some plain yogurt. This will do more to keep you filled. Have a bit of everything at every meal!

We hear all the time that raw food is better - as in healthier - than cooked food. You are not told that eggplants and beans harbor toxic compounds that may wreak havoc on your digestive system if consumed raw. Most starch containing plants cannot be ingested raw because our bodies does not process the starch unless transformed by high temperature processing - cooking, that is.

Carrots, contain fragile nutrients which can be destroyed in a frying pan. However, cooked carrots does contain tons of wonderful nutrients and vitamins. There isn't any evidence that sushi is any better for you than grilled salmon.

So what does one do? Eat a nice mixture of raw and cooked fruits plus veggies. If it's normally eaten raw, then go for it.

Diet decisions must be made according to your own body's needs and life. It is really of no relevance to starve yourself.
