Maintaining a healthy weight can be tough, especially during this time of buffets and giant-portion-sized meals. A lot of people, who have tried and failed with their weight loss plans, don’t believe diets work for them. They are probably right in a sense. Traditional diets don’t work in the long term. There’s a need to have a weight loss plan that incorporates a diet plan as well as a good exercise routine. It is one way to avoid the common dieting drawbacks and get a more lasting weight loss success
In order to control your weight, you just need to do some balancing in your life. If you consume a lot of calories than you burn, then, you will gain weight. If you eat fewer calories than, the amount you burn then you reduce weight
Around 3,500 calories is equivalent to a pound of fat. A comprehensive weight loss plan calls for a low-calorie, low-fat diet. Decreasing the consumption of calories by 500 from the daily diet will allow a person to lose one pound per week. It looks simple on paper but hard to implement in the daily lives.
Most people make the mistake of going into extreme diets that will leave them starving and cranky. They also make unhealthy lifestyle choices that go against their dieting efforts. The good news is that there’s a better way to lose weight without having to feel miserable. A comprehensive weight loss plan will allow you to make the right choices each day and develop new eating habits. A healthy lifestyle will let you win the battle of the bulge.
There is no single solution that will work for everyone. A weight loss plan must be made specifically for the person. It involves a lifestyle change and not just a short term, crash diet. You must be committed to make permanent changes in food choices and lifestyle in order to keep the weight from coming back.
When trying to lose weight, it is best to lose a pound or two a week to maintain a healthy weight loss. When the weight loss is too fast, the mind and body will suffer. The person will be sluggish, sick and drained the whole day. Fast weight loss involves losing muscles and water instead of fat.
For a low-calorie, low-fat diet plan, you don’t need to starve yourself. You can fill yourself up as long as you choose the right foods. The secret to a healthy weight loss program is fibre. High fibre foods take a longer time to digest that makes them more filling. Some examples of high fibre foods include fruits, vegetables, beans, and whole grains.
A comprehensive weight loss plan involves enjoying lots of vegetables and fruits. They are generally safer to eat as many as you like. There’s no need to count calories or measure the portions. They have high fibre and water content that will make it hard for you to overeat. You’ll be full before you go over your required calorie count.
Vegetables should be eaten steamed or raw. They should not be breaded or fried. You can dress them with spices and herbs for flavour. You can add cheese and nuts to salads. You should use low-fat salad dressings, such as vinaigrette made of olive oil. From breakfast, pour less cereal to make room for strawberries, sliced bananas, or blueberries.
A comprehensive weight loss plan should also incorporate a simple workout routine. Exercise is one of the important elements of the diet plan. It not only burns calories but also improve the body’s resting metabolism. Studies suggested that three ten-minute exercises a day are as good as one thirty minute workout session.
You don’t need to go to the gym in order to go your workouts. Some of the best fat burning exercises that should be part of your routine include burpees, jumping lunges, jack-knife crunches, push ups, side planks with leg raises, jumping jacks and lateral jumps to name a few.
The workout routine of the weight loss plan must engage multiple muscle groups at the same time. This is vital especially if you don’t have a lot of spare time for exercise each day. High-intensity interval training workouts are seen to be effective in losing weight.
Adding certain foods to your diet will almost always result in an additional boost to fitness goals. Below there are just a few foods that serve this purpose. Some of them have been called “Super Fruits” for good reason. Some of the healthiest and most effective super fruits are gelatinous fibers such as Chia seeds and Aloe Vera and Chlorophyll containing plants such as parsley and coriander.
A good way to help with diet is juicing fresh fruit every morning and adding one or more of the following ingredients to the mix. Try to have different colour fruits to get the most out of them.
Chia seeds are a concentrated food containing healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium. Chia seeds are an unprocessed, whole-grain food that can be absorbed by the body as seeds (unlike flaxseeds). One ounce (about 2 tablespoons) contains 139 calories, 4 grams of protein, 9 grams fat, 12 grams carbohydrates and 11 grams of fiber, plus vitamins and minerals.
Aloe Vera can be in a gel or latex form. We recommend drinking Aloe Vera juice which is the ultimate healthy habit, as it aids in weight loss, digestion, immune function, and even easing general discomfort.
Adding parsley or coriander to a fresh fruit drink will give additional benefits of Chlorophyll which is a green pigment found in plants. Chlorophyll is used for constipation, detoxification and wound healing.
With summer just round the corner the pressure is well and truly on to look in great shape for the beach. A healthy diet doesn’t have to be starving or depriving yourself from delicious foods. It is all about making the right choices at the right times.
Below you will find a selection of fat burning super food ingredients and tips to help lose the extra pounds with minimal effort.
Calcium – Growing evidence suggests that a calcium rich diet allows us to burn more calories and help the body get rid of fat. Calcium binds with bile acids and increases the amount of fat we excrete through the bowel – so instead of storing it we lose it. Foods rich in calcium include cheese, milk, broccoli, rhubarb and salmon. Full fat milk and cheese should be avoided, low fat alternatives should be consumed instead.
Omega 3 – Found in the likes of oily fish, kidney beans, chickpeas, garden peas, avocado and walnuts, studies suggest Omega 3 fatty acids are one of the great secrets to permanent fat loss. They help maintain healthy blood sugar levels, inhibit the storage of calories as fat, encourage glucose to be stored in muscle cells instead of fat cells and increase thermogenesis – the production of heat by cells within the body causing fat to be used as fuel and calories burned.
Astaxanthin – A carotenoid that gives salmon, prawns, langoustine, rainbow trout and lobster their pink colour has been shown to increase the usage of fat as an energy source and accelerate fat burning during exercise.
Eat only fruit until 11.30am – it’s easier to digest if eaten on its own. A poor digestive process will severely affect any weight loss efforts.
Have a bowl of soup at lunchtime, and a plate of salad too.
Avoid the starchy carbs allowed in the diet after 6pm unless you exercise in the evening (sweet potatoes, beans, lentils, couscous, brown rice, quinoa).
Have plenty of vegetables or a big salad with every meal.
Eat small meals often to keep fat burning going all day and avoid energy dips and cravings.
Avoid white rice, bread and pasta as they give only short-lived energy, provide few nutrients and don’t fill you up for long.
Get 30 minutes of physical activity every day, ideally on an empty stomach first thing in the morning when you burn fat more efficiently for as long as eight hours afterwards.
Drink water every two to three hours – every chemical reaction in the body from extracting nutrients from food to encouraging fat burning needs water to get a result.
