How To Lose Weight Without Nutritional Mistakes
Have you ever tried fad diets or gone on a weight loss program where you have to pay tons of money to marketers who make promises to help you slim down? Many people have gone down this road. What about those processed foods they offer you and tell you that it’s “real” food. What they don’t tell you is that even the “real” food can be processed food.
I’ve recently done some research on the different types of food products people recommend for weight loss. I discovered that if the liver which is the organ that normally breaks down fat is kept too busy, trying to break down all those chemicals in pre-packaged processed foods, it doesn’t work at maximum to burn fat. What about all the conflicting and confusing information about what is healthy to eat and what is not. Carbs or no carbs, butter or margarine, nuts or no nuts? The list goes on and on leaving everyone confused and frustrated.
A leading nutritionist has said that a lot of health experts seem to be making “nutritional mistakes” when telling you what and what not to eat. I also discovered that what works for one person does not necessarily work for another. Different people have different body types and will not be at their best if they lose too much weight. I’m sure you have noticed how some people after losing a lot of weight instead of looking healthy and attractive they look like their life has been injected out of them?
We have been told about good carbs vs. bad carbs, right? We’ve also been told that wheat bread and pasta are allowed on a healthy eating plan. Well, apparently wheat bread is not included in the good carbohydrates. What about fat vs. no fat? We need a certain amount of fat to stay at our healthiest. Here’s a surprise, soy milk is supposed to be good for you, but not necessarily. If it is processed, it forces your liver to work harder and less effectively.
So what does all this mean? My consensus was that unless you have a serious weight problem which requires medical attention, the best diet is no diet. Here are some tips to help get you get started on your new “no diet” eating plan.
• Learn which are the right foods and which are not
• Be patient with yourself
• Keep away from sugary unhealthy sweets
• Limit processed foods as much as possible
• Don’t compare your body type with someone else’s
• Even mild exercise ALWAYS enhances any type of weight loss program
• Drink plenty of water to boost your metabolism
• Eat a lot of fruits and vegetables
• Find a good eating plan and cookbook
• Journal your eating plan progress (especially the first few weeks)
Don’t think that you can lose weight by skipping a meal. Skipping any meal is always discouraged since as we all know it triggers your body into survival mode, which makes your body store all that fat. If you’re in a rush never let yourself go hungry, but instead enjoy a delicious apple on the road.…
