Sure, you know there are several fad diets. Some of those diets work for others and and makes some people watching want to mimic. Truth is not everything that works for some will work for all. This kind of movement can be very discouraging. First things first its so easy to get trickled into the look of others. You have to know whats going to work for you.
What I have learned to do is not look at is as a diet but think of it as a lifestyle. You have to make sure that goals you are setting are reasonable.Setting reasonable goals for change in your daily eating and exercise habits will give you better lasting results. Here are just a few things to keep up with:
GIVE UP BAD CARBS: Giving up carbs completely can be a health disaster. Carbs are always feared in trendy diets and this can cause a big mistake for people. There are some good carbs in whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and beans. The body can benefit from cards full of fiber that get absorbed slowly into our digestive systems and do not interfere with our blood sugar levels. Fiber is an important tool for weight management. High-fiber foods will keep you fuller on fewer calories.
Fat: Fat is needed for important body processes including digestion and nutrient absorption. Fat may be high in calories but it is a huge source of fuel for our bodies. Instead of avoiding fats altogether, focus on finding the good fats in raw nuts, organic meat, fish, nut butters and olive oils.
Portion Control: Focus on maintaining healthy eating of the foods you like but only in reasonable portions. Live a lifestyle with the foods you like but try to aim for the foods high in nutrition and just make sure you are eating less of the foods that are not good for you.
Hormones: An imbalance in your hormones can cause energy loss, loss of mental clarity, decrease in lean muscle mass, increased belly fat, loss of sleep, mood swings, and the list goes on. Eating on schedule is good for your metabolism but it will also help keep your insulin levels low and help eliminate cravings and fat storage. Plenty of protein is to keep you feeling full and try and eat super fat-burning foods such as cinnamon. If you are eating healthy and exercising regularly and you are not losing weight you may want to seek help from a specialist.
Hydrate: Drink a few glasses of water a day for digestion, mood, organs, blood and overall health. It;s easy to drink your calories, if you don't choose water.
Nutrition. While you do want to pay attention to the portions of food you consume you want to also make sure that the foods you are eating are filled with nutrition. Although some foods may be low in calories and carbs, they could be filled with salts and sugars.
