Do you find yourself eating the same foods day after day? It’s easy to fall into a routine of reaching for your favorite go-to meals, but doing so may eventually cause food boredom and lead to inadvertent weight gain. Mixing up your meals by switching from chicken to turkey or from red peppers to green, for example, does have its advantages.
According to Dr. Arthur Agatston, author of The South Beach Diet Supercharged and The South Beach Diet Wake-Up Call, "Your chances of achieving long-term weight-loss success with our program will be greatly improved by varying your daily menus." Adding new foods to your meals will help you ward off the boredom that can undermine your weight-loss efforts and cause you to overeat. Moreover, consuming a wide variety of foods ensures that you’re getting a greater range of essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients that keep your body healthy.
