To Eat Is A Necessity But To Eat Intelligently Is An Art.
Every time we eat is an opportunity to nourish our body. And hence, one should always eat smartly. The key term to healthy eating is adding a large amount of protein, eliminating carbohydrates and banning fats from your everyday meals. For this, you need to add a wide variety of foods to your plate – whole grains, lean protein, and different kinds of produce – to ensure that you get all necessary nutrients while losing your weight.
Round out your eating plan with these 4 simple tips and shed some extra pounds without doing much:
The menu is long and life is short. Try new recipes every day and add odds favor to your daily meals. The report says that variety ensures a nutrient-rich diet and most importantly a happier diner. Add colorful dishes to your plate and make sure that half the plate contains green vegetables – each color cogitates a different nutrient that your body needs every day. Trying new recipes will never run out of new recipes to try and you would never ever grow bored and go for junk.
Might sound boring to some of you, however, cooking your meals by yourself keeps your weight in check. You know what you need to add to balance the calories for the day. Above all, cooking more often saves you money and offers togetherness and also the quality of life for you and your family. Take 10 minutes right now to choose and finalize a few recipes from our Superfast and, at least, 5-Ingredient collections.
Wake up at 5 AM or at 6 and fill yourself with a 2-4 glass of water and few almonds. Then jog before breakfast and eat three home cooked meals. If you feel hungry in between then take some light yet filling snacks like one small bowl of strawberries to boost your metabolism and stop yourself from overeating your dinner. If you really want to lose weight fast then hit the gym every day and drink less alcohol. Start saying a big NO to beer, Chinese takeout and other foods that are sweetened, fried, breaded, or battered.
The report says that people who eat early at night and starts fueling themselves from 8 AM in the morning lose more weight with same diet plans than people who eat late at night.
That’s it: Your blueprint for superlative health.
The tips may sound doable, but you are still with us and that means you actually want to lose weight. However, even while strictly following a diet plan, you can occasionally order your favorite greasy meal or can grab a candy bar while you rush to a meeting.
Make your plan fit your schedule. Set small goals and celebrate your achievement with extra effort.
Healthy & Clean Diet? Yes. Regular Workouts? Yes. Food Journal? Yes, Indeed. Still not losing weight! It’s so frustration, no matter how hard you try, your pounds clung to you like your codependent friend. Less motivation to move forward! Take a few minutes break and think; Why You Are Not Losing Weight Instead Of Trying So Hard. Here are some of the reasons that your efforts haven’t been showing up on your size:
Did you count the cookie, you grabbed from your colleague’s desk or the dressing you put on meals? Sometimes, we forget to consider the calories we take in small portions and hence end up in eating as much as 100+ calories more than our calorie count. See the below small portions of our favorite snacks that we forget to add but are high in calories:
Another factor to consider is mindless eating. While watching television or talking, we eat a lot more than we should and still count lesser calories. So other than being accurate at the calorie count, one should also kick off the mindless eating habit. While sitting or relaxing, try a cup of green tea, a glass of water, or a small piece of sugarless gum. If you have cravings for some specific snack then portion it out as per your goal. Even if you are taking healthy snacks like a handful of walnuts or almonds then eat “A Handful” only not the whole bag.
You must have heard about the importance of H2O when it comes to shedding pounds, however, do you know how much water you should be drinking. Eight-cup-a-day? Yes, if you’re the sedentary woman who weighs 128 pounds. Not you! If you consume a hardline amount of fiber, then add 16 more ounces a day to your water consumption. Yes, you read it right- 12 cups a day, minimum.
Water helps to suppress appetite and hence controls your overeating mindset. Moreover, if you consume less water, you’re dehydrated. In that case, the Kidney fails to function properly and turns to the liver for some support. And when the Liver works hard, rather than burning off the fat, your body stress the fat you consume. Before each meal, fill up yourself with a glass of water.
I know, I know. How thinking of an exercise routine may affect your scale numbers? For starters, dieters tend to eat more when they exercise or work out, either because they’re overestimating how many calories they’ve burned — they feel they’ve earned it— or both. When you think of work out a lot, you start craving for fatty foods or junk foods and fill yourself with more calories than your diet. It especially happens in the early stages of your road to shedding a pound or getting fit, when your body is initially getting used to the increase in calories burned and the decrease in calories consumed. Stay well-hydrated, active and eventually off the scale.
Are you one of those, who turn to food and pack on pounds when under pressure or in stress. Stress hormone “Cortisol” triggers an appetite stimulant that produces a brain chemical that enhances the cravings for carbohydrates. Moreover, the high quantity of Cortisol slows metabolism and eventually makes harder for you to lose weight. You can do a lot of things to reduce stress including exercise. Delicious, nutritious and balanced meals can repair the damage that stress does to your body.
You have a desk job and you spent all sitting in front of a computer! The report says that even if you do a solid hour of exercise every day, workouts simply can’t compensate for being sedentary the rest of the time of the day. As per a recent research, walking for 2 minutes during each of those hours would burn an extra 59 calories a day.
Set a reminder to your computer to move every hour. Moreover, you should also follow the recommendations you would have heard million times, “Park far away from mall”, “Take stairs instead of elevator”. To some exercise while brushing teeth or watching Television. Try to log at least 10,000 steps a day before hitting the bed.
You’re Skipping Meals! Research says that breakfast eaters shed more pounds than breakfast skippers.
Too many Liquid Calories! Liquid calories from alcohol, coffee with cream and sugar, sweetened juices, and sodas can really contribute to your weight gain.
Choosing Unhealthy Add-on! Make sure the dressing you are opting is lesser in calories and is healthier.
Oversized Portions! Use small bowls and plates to control the portions you eat.
Not Getting Enough Sleep! Try to get at least 6-8 hours of sleep a day.
Evaluate what you are doing! With an evaluation, you can find the error. Keep Up With The Goal No Matter What.
Healthy weight loss isn’t just about a “perfect diet” or “program”. It is all about an ongoing lifestyle that includes some long-term vicissitudes in daily eating and exercise habits. There is one basic mantra of losing weight, “Use up More Calories than You Take In”.
Losing weight is not like shooting fish in a barrel, and it takes commitment to work. You are here that means you are ready to get started and if you’re ready to get started, we’ve got a no-fuss, straightforward step-by-step guide to getting you on the road to losing 24 pounds & more and better health.
The very first change that you should do is start drinking a lot of water. If you drink 2 liters a day, then start with 3 liters a day and gradually go on to 4 liters a day. The more water you drink the lesser hungry you feel. Other than this water has many more benefits, like clearer skin, fatigue buster. Don’t flood your stomach with water in one shot. Have a few sips at regular interval. In view of the fact that water is calorie-free, switching from high-calorie drinks (like soda or soft drinks) to water will eventually help you acquire and maintain a healthy body weight.
Once you form the habit of consuming more water every day, change you dinner timing. Start eating your dinner much earlier. There should be a space of at least 3 to 4hours between your dinner and bedtime. Never hit the sack with an almost full stomach. If you have this bad habit break it. The perfect time for eating your dinner is around 7 PM. Once you change the timing of your dinner, start including more fruits and salad in your dinner. Gradually reduce your heavy dinner to a light dinner over a period of time (the sooner, the faster results). These two habits are one of the most crucial steps. It will help you start losing weight within 2 weeks only.
When you have started to dine earlier (and light), it’s time to get on to the next step. It’s time to do some physical activities. Not a gym or exercise kind of person? Don’t worry, you don’t need to hit the treadmill or go to a gym. Simply walk whenever you get a chance. Start with at least 2 miles a day and gradually increase the distance. You don’t need to take time out of your schedule to walk. Walk to work, if possible, or explore when can you walk and you don’t. After 1-2 weeks only, you will feel lighter. Trust me, the result will amaze you. Give your car a rest and walk up to the mall, office, and grocery. Give the elevator/lift a break and walk up the stairs. Give yourself a good 20-30 minutes of brisk walk every day or in case you have a busy schedule at least 5 times a week. Walk will help you lose weight and feel fit.
When you start losing weight as per your plan, the motivation and the feeling that is generated is tremendous. Once you form the habit of above-mentioned steps, the next thing you need to work on is drinking. You don’t need to completely stop drinking – just indulge yourself once in a while. If you drink thrice in a week, cut down drinking to once a week. If you like to drink every day or 5 times a week, then cut it down to twice a week and gradually go on to once a week. If you like fried stuff during your drinking session, then try to avoid it. The weekly drinking and the avoidance of fast fried foods will contribute to your weight loss. Remember, the more you drink the more you eat and will end up “full” and will eventually go to bed in an hour or so. Nothing can be worse than going to bed on a “full”.
Most of the people either skip their breakfast or fill themselves with a lot of fried and oily stuff. If this is your routine as well, then change it. Cut the oily and fried food completely from your breakfast at least for weekdays. Eat oatmeal and some fruits for breakfast. Accompany your breakfast with a glass of milk or juice (not the bottled ones). On weekends, eat whatever you like. This way, you will lose your weight and won’t miss your favorite food.
In Your Daily Routine If you are a coffee or a tea kind of person, then start drinking a green tea whenever you feel like having a bottled juice or coffee or soda (at least twice a day). Heat a cup of water for a minute and dip the green tea bag in the water for 2 minutes. Don’t add sugar or cream to it. Other than burning fat, green tea helps in preventing heart diseases, diabetes and lowering cholesterol.
Most of us like to eat in one sitting. Try to gap your meal timings evenly. Instead of stuffing yourself in one go, eat a small portion at frequent intervals. To make it work, eat light lunch and snack in the later afternoon. You won’t feel too hungry during dinner.
This is a standard frequency of eating, however, you can slightly change it as per your comfort zone. Go to bed on time and try not to eat any light or heavy snack before an hour of going to bed. Remember, enough sleep will also help you to lose weight.
Keep track of your weight regularly. Measure your weight at the same time every day. A perfect time to measure is in the morning before eating your breakfast. In this way, you would get a precise report if your progress and can work accordingly.
The next thing that you need to measure is the calories you take in. Closely monitor your calories as precisely as you can. Find the calorie amounts of your meals/snacks and write them down anywhere (better write it in a food journal). You can also use a weight loss app for the same. Make sure that everything you take in gets written down — yes, you heard it right everything even a cookie you grabbed off your colleague’s desk! Then weigh yourself daily and write it at the end of your calorie take in (of that day). It will give you a complete track of your progress.
Above all, losing weight is a long journey. So it is better to set small goals while being on the way to your big goal. Celebrate those goals (not with cookies, ice-creams) in a healthy way. Once you start achieving your small goals, you would feel ecstatic. With the small changes in your lifestyle, you can lose a lot of weights. Once the changes form a habit, you will feel that it’s just the way you live your life. The worst part about trying to lose weight is “Dealing with the Hunger”.
Plan your meals and snacks ahead of time. It will prevent you from pushing yourself to grab the nearest cookie. It is highly recommended to write out what you will be eating for the entire week. You don’t need to strictly stick to that, you can change the menu whenever you want. Remember, there is no diet with magical slimming powers. With the above-mentioned steps, you might lose 24 pounds or more in 6 weeks or less. Don’t starve yourself, make these small tweaks in your lifestyle and you will see the benefits. Find a way of eating that can be continued for the rest of your life. Just to remind you, “Don’t Forget to Celebrate Your Small Goals”.
Do you know, some of the great diet foods are utterly delicious too! The foundation for an effective weight loss plan is healthy eating and physical activities. Some of the wrong diet foods picks might render nugatory on your road to losing weight.
Some foods can help you shed your body weight as those foods help curb cravings and fill you for longer. Remember, your diet plan should be all about feeling full and satisfied. Don’t starve yourself. To power up your efforts, add these diet foods to your plan to help you lose more weight.
FOOD #1: Mushrooms
Dieticians and Researchers Report that when people ate mushroom-based dishes, they felt equally satisfied as when they’d eaten the same dishes. Mushroom has a fraction of calories and fat than the beef. Professionals suggest to swapping mushrooms for meat to make your diet plan more effective.
FOOD #2: Eggs
It was proved in a study; dieters who add eggs to their breakfast meal feel full for longer and lose thrice or at least twice as much weight as those who eat a bagel of approx. same calories. If you don’t prefer eggs for breakfast then prefer it in your salad snack as eggs enhance the staying power of salad to keep you feel filled for hours.
FOOD #3: Apples
A medium sized apple contains 4g of fiber and a mere 95 calories. Recent research says that the fiber intake help to prevent weight gain and even help in weight loss. Swap your tropical fruits like mango with apples to lose weight fast.
FOOD #4: Dark Chocolate
A little sweet treat will help you stick to your diet. Research reports that forbidding yourself from sugary food might lead to overeating. It has been proved that removing access to sweet foods would increase stress level and lower your motivation to stick to the diet plan. Thus, you will end up in binging on junk food. Pick a square or two. Don’t be afraid of eating dark chocolates over the milky version. In one study, people who ate dark chocolate ate 15% less pizza after a few hours than people who had eaten a milk chocolate.
FOOD #5: Soup
One study has proved; people who start a meal with a bowl of vegetable soup end up their meal with 20% fewer calories.
FOOD #6: Hot Chile Peppers
Research reports that if you consume a little hot pepper half-an-hour before a meal, you will feel less hungry and will eventually eat about 10 % less. You can eat Hot Chile Pepper in a tomato juice or can try any other recipe.
FOOD #7: Almonds
To curb cravings, chew more at least 35 -40 times. Start your day with 2-ounce serving of almonds and chew it 40 times. It will keep you full and satisfied for longer. Additionally, chewing might also release the fat from the almonds and triggers the hormones that curb hunger.
FOOD #8: Beans
Beans are a great source of protein and even keeps you filled for a longer time. They prevent hunger and eventually stop you from eating more. Beans are rich in fiber and are also easy to digest. Hence, dieters should always include beans in their meals.
FOOD #9: Oatmeal
Professionals suggest to eating a breakfast that contains “slow-release” carbohydrates, such as oatmeal or bran cereal. You can burn more fat if you eat oatmeal 3 hours before you exercise. The “slow-release” carbohydrates don’t spike blood sugar as high as eating anything that contains refined carbohydrates, such as white toast.
Next time you visit the store, load with lots of protein, fruit, fresh veggies, and whole grains. Weight Loss is the whole picture of what you eat, it’s not about eating a specific food.
Dealing with Your Hunger is the worst part when trying to lose weight. Changing your eating habits and your lifestyle is a challenging whirl. Lots of experts believe it’s stupid to ban yourself from eating your favorite foods – that snubbing yourself something you really want to eat can ultimately lead to orgy eating and gain weight eventually. It’s OK to indulge sometimes!
But some foods that are branded “low-fat” or “healthy” or “low sugar” can be unexpectedly high in calories and hence those foods really do deserve the axe — specifically if you are trying to lose weight fast. In which case, evade these foods (when you can!) to stave off hunger and cravings, and support your efforts to slim down:
FOOD #1: Whole Wheat Pasta
When trying to lose weight, one substitutes the white pasta for brown pasta, which is a great step towards a healthy diet. The fact is, the brown past can also be a sabotage to weight loss. The whole wheat pasta is high in carbohydrates that digest into sugars in our body. It may also contain as many calories as your preferred white pasta. Suggestion: For a low carbohydrate option, replace your pasta with spaghetti squash.
Food #2: Multi-Grain Bread
Multi-grain bread may sound healthy to you, but most of those miss out on minerals and vitamins. While preparing the bread, the grains may be over processed, thus, doffing the grains of their fiber and nutrients. Suggestion: Go for a whole grain bread. This bread is higher in fiber, more nutritious and more filling for you. Moreover, sourdough bread has many amazing benefits. Thus, you don’t have to live without white bread.
Food #3: Frozen Dinners
When trying to lose weight, frozen healthy dinners are a very dangerous choice. Some of those foods may be low in sugar or fat, but most of them are full of junks. These foods can easily and quickly cooked in one’s microwave, however, some of your favorite frozen meals are over 1000 calories per serving. Suggestion: Instead, try to make leftover portions from lunches and reheat them for dinners. In this way, you may calculate the exact calories of your food.
Food #4: Low-Calorie Snack Packs
When changing food habits, fixed calorie snack packs are a great way to enjoy treats in a controlled manner. The fact is these products have horrible nutritional content. These foods are actually unhealthy food but are packaged and ad in such a way that will make you think it’s good to eat them daily. Suggestion: Keep in mind, these foods are treated only and as you know treats shouldn’t be consumed daily.
Food #5: Sugar-Free Products
Sugar-free products may have lower calories, however, these foods contain unhealthy sugar alternatives. As per several studies, your body these fake sugars as if it were real, thus, raising your insulin levels. Most of the sugar alternatives have their own risk. Suggestion: So before taking any sugar-free product, research and be cognizant with what you are consuming.
Food #6: Tropical Fruit
When trying to lose weight, fruit is considered as a great choice for snacks. However, most of the fruits have hidden calories and specifically tropical fruit is high in sugar. Although tropical fruits like ripe pineapple and mangos are delicious but should be consumed in moderation. Suggestion: Look for various soluble and insoluble fiber while shopping for fruit. Apples are lower in calories and are also packed full of fiber, so apples can be an incredible option.
Food #7: Restaurant
Entree Salads So in the dinner, you ordered the salad instead of a burger – looks like the smart choice of action. Unfortunately, you may be eating more calories with your salad than the burger. Most of the salad dressings have hidden calories with dried nuts and fruits being common. Suggestion: Be content with what toppings you include and look for some low-calorie dressing options.
Food #8: Granola
Granola is everyone’s favorite topping to yogurts, desserts, and cereals. It is prepared from oatmeal and hence is considered as a healthy product by many of us. But the fact is, it is also loaded with plenty of butter and sugar. Due to these additions, Granola is unexpectedly high in calories. Suggestion: If you love crunchy topping for your dessert or yogurt then bran cereal is an amazing option for you. It will keep you full for a long time and is prepared from the fiber.
Food #9: Protein Bars
When you are on the go or don’t have time to rest for your meal, then protein bars may seem like an impeccable option. Remember, all of the protein bars are not prepared equally. Some of those are as unhealthy as candy bars. While buying a protein bar for yourself, look at its calorie content. Suggestion: If the bar is your meal replacement, then 350+ calories is a good range to go for and it should have at least 10g of protein. However, if it’s your snack bar then look for something lower.
Food #10: Peanut Butter
Peanut butter packed with healthy fats, however, it has also higher calories. Do you know that 1 tablespoon of peanut butter has almost 200 calories! Some of the peanut butter varieties have added sugar as well. Suggestion: Read the label for ingredients and check for natural and no sugar added products. Some varieties have a different flavor and might take some time to get used to. But the nutrition of natural products has better nutrition than the sugary types.
Food #11: Trail Mix
If you are hiking, then Trail Mix is an amazing snack. However, if you’re not physically active then it might not be the best choice. Trail mix has nuts of very high calories and one can easily over indulge in the delicious nuts. Some varieties of trail mix also include candy and chocolate that are unhealthy. Suggestion: Make trail mix at home by mixing the low-calorie varieties. Don’t add any meat jerky or sugar added dried fruit.
