By now, you must have already come across zillions of diet tips to lose weight and must have tried many of them! If you are reading this article, then, it is highly probable that none of them worked, and here you are, once again trying to search for some really workable tips! Well, we are not going to disappoint you! Here, you are going to find some suggestions that really work for you.
It is important to understand that permanent weight reduction can be achieved only on following a weight reduction plan that aims to curtail your high calorie intake in a slow and steady manner, without making you endure intense pangs of hunger. Dieting also does mean starving or sleep deprivation, as both starving and sleep deprivation are going to retard your metabolic system, thus leaving the fat in you undisturbed. Eating a healthy diet along with adequate exercising is the safest, and the most effective way of reducing one’s weight.
Diet Tips To Reduce Weight
Forget Crash Dieting
Crash dieting never works! This is because when you reduce your food intake drastically, your body will work towards protection of its existence and reduce the rate of metabolism in order to conserve its resources, thereby letting your adipose sit in you, undisturbed! Moreover, there is a probability of your falling sick, whereby you will be back to square one, eating as much as you can to make your body recover its healthy state.
Eating small portions, which are enough to maintain the healthy state of your body, in a clinically methodical way, is the safest, fastest and the most lasting way to weight loss. This, coupled with exercising should yield the desired results.
Have Plenty of Water
Though water loss may constitute one of the most important aspects of a weight loss agenda, drinking water is vital for the healthy maintenance of your body. Otherwise, you may have to face dangerous health consequences.
Water is required for smooth functioning of the metabolic system, for keeping your body hydrated, to flush out calorie-burning toxins, maintaining healthy blood volume to prevent muscle fatigue, muscle toning, dietary fiber digestion, and reduced dietary intake.
Boycott Refined Sugar
Refined sugar is found to be the culprit in weight gain and non-reduction of lost weight. If you are overweight, you should strictly restrain yourself from having all foods and drinks that contain refined sugar. Foods containing refined sugar are high in empty calories that add to weight gain. Refined sugar is a hidden ingredient of many apparently non-sweet tasting foods such as certain breads and biscuits.
To ensure that you are not consuming this sugar unknowingly, check the ingredient labels of processed foods to note the presence of refined sugar in them. You can have sugarless green and black teas without dairy milk. If you are a slave to sweetness, and cannot do without it, use natural sweeteners such as Stevia in foods requiring sweetness. You can also purchase processed foods with the ‘no-added sugar’ label.
Reduce Bad Starches
Many junk foods such as potato chips, pastries, commercial cakes, and cookies are high in simple starches that add empty calories that make you consume more of these foods, thereby greatly adding to your calorie count. Even unprocessed foods such as potatoes and white rice contain high amounts of simple sugars.
These too contribute to increased calorie intake. These foods can be substituted for foods that contain high fiber such as whole grain breads and green vegetables that do not raise the count of empty calories. Junk foods should be stopped completely.
Eat High Proteins
Foods that are high in protein and moderate in carbohydrates ensure weight loss by reducing blood fats. Such foods also help in conserving lean tissue, while burning the calories. The proteins prevent hunger hormones from stimulating the brain too much. Proteins prevent the frequency of insulin fluctuations, thereby reducing appetite.
Lean red meat, chicken (skinless), fish, eggs, double-toned milk, low-fat dairy products, legumes, soy products, nuts, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, and flax seeds are some of the foods that belong to this category. They can be boiled, steamed or baked for consumption.
