Ways To Have A Healthy Family: Way 5

.........

 Try and eat your meals together in order to cut some calories.  We can talk about nutrition and exercise all day long, but research has shown the great effectiveness of actually sitting down with you family and eating. Not eating alone is one of the ways you can get educated about appreciating good quality food which helps you to lose weight.

In fact, the further benefit of actually sitting down and eating together is that it gives your kids (or with whomever you eat your food) good eating habits. It will improve their grades and they will open up to you more than the kids who eat alone in their rooms.

When families sit together to eat, it creates a wonderful atmosphere which is quite harmonious and that is crucial for long term health. If due to work you cannot have lunch or dinner together then make breakfast the time when the whole of the family actually sits together to eat.

I think this is a great way to get involved with your family and the food you eat. Remember, emotional stability is half the battle when it comes to losing weight and getting fit.
