Look; Drink lots of water. Pills and fad diets like Atkins, quickie diets (loosing 7 pounds in 7 days & fruit/veggie diet) and diet herbs don’t work and they are just gimmicks to make money for food industries so that you will continue buying their products. You will gain all of it back once u eat normally again too. Include more fiber and pre portioned meals So theres no chance of overeating. Eat breakfast, drink tea, cut back on beer.Â To lose weight, you need to take in fewer calories than you use. Decide if you want to eat less, exercise more, or do a combination of both. If you want to eat less, you can use the links that ill provide for you to find out the cals in the foods you eat. Weight loss does not occur evenly and Whatever you choose to do, do it consistently. Inevitably, to lose weight, 500 calories could be subtracted per day for each pound you want to lose every week, you know? However, total calorie levels < 1200 calories are not recommended and weight loss of > 2 pounds per week is also not recommended. One pound of body fat has 3,500 calories. By just cutting out the calories equivalent to one slice of buttered toast from your diet, you can lose 15 pounds in one year and a half! Weight loss is accelerated by reducing calories. The best diet is one that can be maintained for months; and then healthy eating habits become a way of life.Â
By the way when going out to eat for a special occasion you can try to “bank” your calories. If you eat less calories than your calorie goal for the day, you can “bank” or save your calories for the next day. This again will be helpful when planning for a special occasion.Â
The following snacks are great: 100-Cal pudding, Jello, packaged 50 cal applesauce, Nature Valley granola bar, Matzo, Kashi Cereal (one cup in a nice plastic bag), A Tootsie Pop. Pack your own lunches or little meals when you go out in a cute little brown bag or in a cute bag the night before you leave your house. I encourage my mother to bring almonds and/or peanuts w/ her before she leaves. Eat breakfast too beore leaving house. Never shop on an empty stomach b/c when you get hungry at a mall or grocery store, youâ€™ll pack your Cart with a lot of junk! Each week, make up a little menu that focuses on nutritious whole foods, & try to do some of your cooking in advance. You could make extra portions on days that you Â cook for example and package some for lunch the next day. Eat more food without packaging and look for foods with fewer than 5-6 ingredients if you can. Check for hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats, b/c this = Trans fat. Trans fat arenâ€™t always listed on food labels! If the product has either one of those words please donâ€™t eat it! As an adult you need 25-35 grams of fiber a day and fiber is said to push food through the intestines causing great digestion. Foods with fiber include, popcorn, quinoa, oats (I buy Quaker oats, raw, old fashioned, 140-150 per half cup), Matzos in the kosher aisle, Special K Protein Plus cereal, Kelloggs All Bran wheat flakes cereal, Wheatieâ€™s, and Kelloggâ€™s total, original (itâ€™s a light blue and white box). My top of those are Special K protein plus and Kelloggâ€™s all bran wheat flakes because it tastes awesome! I like silk soy milk too, the organic kind and silk soy vanilla. Please read labels hun; a lot of labels are tricky. All you have to do is look at â€œTotal Fatâ€ to ser how much fat is in each serving. I would cut back on all red meat and perhaps go for seafood, You know? Eat more legumes and whole grains and avoid packaged foods (except the two-four cereals I just listed of course haha). Eat more raw foods you know?-like vegetables and fruits. I like cut up mushrooms and spinach in my salads. I like kiwi, apricots, tomatoes, garlic powder on salads, carrots, and broccoli. I like to bake mangoes, peaches, pears in the oven for like 2 minutes or less and the juices just POP OUT, like its friggin Christmas and it just tastes amazing. You may try it in the microwave too, just to test this out. I like TruVia too, Its in the baking aisle. I sprinkle it in my warm white tea with a little bit of lemon juice (like a teaspoon) when I just want to relax. I like truvia with oatmeal, over fruits that sometimes taste too dry like Papayas (which is great for your face mind you). Cantaloupes are amazing and strawberries; eat moderately because although fruit is good, it has a lot of sugar, (good sugar though). While “natural” sugars might be a better choice than table sugar from a health and nutrient standpoint, the caloric load is still the same: Sugar is empty calories. If you’re counting calories, you want every calorie to count! Hope this helps and email me anytime.
