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.…

What Are The 6 Key Points You Must Look For In A Diet Based Weight Loss Program?

There is no one best weight loss diet for everyone because individuals differ in terms of personal profile and circumstance. However, certain diets, because of their strict adherence to natural and basic principles of weight loss, are suitable for most people. If you are looking at one such diet program, consider the following:

A mix of diet and exercise. Such mix must be based on the fact that diet contributes to 80% of weight loss while exercise makes up the other 20%. The diet must be based on scientific evidence and proven as well as safe methods. It must include variety and as far as possible, consist of all food groups.

Does not require fasting and skipping meals. In fact, the best diets recommend eating five times a day. Not the usual big three meals but five smaller ones using foods with specific nutritional examples of such foods would be vegetables, soy products, foods made with buckwheat, fish, tropical fruits, ginger, whole grain breads and legumes.

The diet should appreciate your biological instincts. It should allow you to choose what you eat, how you eat, when you eat and how much you eat. It would suggest that you give up casual eating or snacking on unhealthy foods, over sized portions, cravings and junk food.

Is designed for short term fast weight loss as well as long term maintenance. This could be based on a two phase or two stage approach. One to give you the results so that you will be sufficiently motivated and the other to help you keep off what you lose.

Does not focus on only one element of weight loss. Not just low carb, low fat or high protein but a healthy consideration of all the requirements for safe and healthy way to lose weight. Further, it should not require you to make drastic changes to your lifestyle. Perhaps, some small changes to your eating habits.

The diet must be designed and developed by qualified and experienced nutritionists. It must provide you with personal consultation as well as support. It is no good if you are given a plan and then left on your own to manage or overcome situations that may be of special concern to you.

While the above factors are key to your deciding on a weight loss diet, it is equally important that you pick one that is simple, easy and practical. It must be able to cater for different needs including vegetarianism. Bear in mind that it takes time to lose weight depending on how much you need to lose. You can certainly lose weight in a day, eat junk food or even starve and lose weight but it would be at the risk of injuring your general well being. Therefore, choose your weight loss diet carefully.…

Why Am I Still Gaining Weight? (3)

People always say that eating less is the inviolable rule of weight loss, however why does not it work on myself? Why? After answering the following questions, you get to know the reasons.
Question 1: What is in your body- muscle or fat?
What is hidden in your body – fat or muscle? It is a fact that a kilo of muscles will burn 100 calories a day, but a kilo of fat can only burn 4 to 10 calories. What a great difference!
Solution: If you have more muscles compared with fat, then your basal metabolic rate will be higher. On the contrary, more fat leads to low basal metabolic rate. Try to build your muscles is what you should do.

When you have meals affects the figures. Although you miss one meal, you will still gain weight once you eat just before you go to bed. The energy in your body cannot be exhausted, so that they may turn into fat and accumulate in your body.
Solution: You should try not to eat food during the 3 or 4 hours before going to bed. I advice you to stretch your body before going to bed for it will burn calories and help you fall into asleep.
Question 4: Do you still put on weight even though you eat less?
Reason: If the time between two meals is kept too long, then once food comes in, all the nutrition will be absorbed.
Solution: You should eat on time, so that body will know when to absorb energy. So that it will not absorb all the nutrition once you eat.…
