A Healthy Way Diet & Achieve Weight Loss
Many people get frustrated because they want to lose weight, and they choose a quick fix weight loss program, like rigid diets or pills, and they can´t achieve their goals. Why does this occur?
Losing weight is possible for everyone, but the key is to change your lifestyle; and this is a “process” not something you “start” doing, and then you “stop”. That´s why most of the diets and medications used to lose weight don´t work.
In order to start a weight loss program, three things should be considered: diet, physical activity and motivation. All of these have to be considered. To obtain an easy and natural weight loss you should:
Increase Your Metabolism
This can be achieved in two ways: eating smaller meals more often and increasing your physical activity. You should eat at least 5-6 small meals per day. Each time you eat; your body’s cells are taking in nutrients. However, if they can´t absorb these nutrients, they decrease their metabolism. A diet of 5-6 smaller meals a day avoids allows your body to burn fat all day long.
Eat Fewer Calories
You should burn more calories than you consume. Avoid sugary foods and cut down on dietary fats. Fats have more than twice the calories per gram than carbohydrates and proteins. You should include foods that have more volume with less calorie content in your diet. These foods are: liquids without sugar, soups, diet jelly, fruit juices, fruits and vegetables, whole-grain cereals and legumes, whites of eggs, fat-free yoghurt and skimmed milk.
Avoid Starchy and Processed Flour Foodstuffs
These foods have carbohydrates of low quality. Carbohydrates are used for the body to get fuel, but if these are in excess in the diet, they are transformed into fat. As a consequence, carbohydrate intake should be controlled and accordingly to your metabolic expenditure rate. Moreover, there are some carbohydrates that rapidly increase glucose in blood (high glycemic index), like cakes, pizza, white bread, cereals and pasta. Replace them with high-fiber bread, legumes, brown rice, grains and nuts instead.
Avoid All Sugary and Soft Drinks
These beverages have “empty calories” which provide no nutrients and they get easily transformed into fat. In addition, they raise the risk for developing tooth decay. So, you should replace them for water, fruit juices and skimmed milk.
Alcohol has 7 calories per gram, and the body can´t use them, so this energy is accumulated as fat. If your daily diet includes alcoholic or sugary beverages, you should avoid them and after one to two weeks, you won’t need them anymore.
Just by following these healthy eating habits, you will start to lose weight easily, quickly and naturally. Include cardio and weight lifting exercise into your weight loss program and your weight loss will be permanent.
