About diets and diets and… diets again. We wrote several articles about diet tips, ways of losing weight, tips for losing weight and many more.
Today’s article is easy to read and very helpful, because summer 2010 comes up with new, hot ideas for diet tips. Follow the steps, use the tricks in your advantage and lose weight without… doing anything!
Go to bed early: A decent amount of sleep is necessary for good health. If you deprive your body of sleep, you tend to put on weight. Besides, when you stay up late, you tend to get hungry and snack on food that is not good for you. Sleep rejuvenates you and gives you enough energy to face the next day. And when you sleep early, you don’t find it hard to wake up early for your work out the following day.
Eat frequently and slowly: It is important to understand what happens when you skip a meal or go on a crash diet. When you skip a meal your metabolism slows to conserve your energy. And when you lose weight too quickly for a few days, your body thinks it is threatened with starvation and goes into survival mode. It fights to conserve your fat stores, and any weight loss comes mostly from water and muscle.
Never skip a meal, especially breakfast, and eat healthy snacks between meals. Eating frequently prevents hunger pangs and the binges that follow, provides consistent energy, and may be the single most effective way to maintain metabolism efficiency.
Eating slowly gives our bodies time to tell us they are full before we’ve eaten more than we need.
Don’t diet on the weekends: This is another unconventional bit of advice. Give yourself the chance to celebrate on Friday and Saturday! Start the week and think of a prize you will give yourself at the end of the week if you follow the diet tips. You may get tired of dieting for a long time, so you can see this “weekend break” as a recharge. But, don’t exaggerate; eat fruit salads, even chocolate. If you are starving for some pizza, it is ok… but try to hydrate yourself a lot, In order to help your body eliminate the excess fat you ate, through sweat.
Drink WATER!!! Water is most effective in losing weight. Drinking lots of water will increase your metabolism and burn your calories faster. Develop a habit of carrying a water bottle everywhere you go.
Eat more fibers: Fiber makes us feel full sooner and stays in our stomach longer than other substances we eat, slowing down our rate of digestion and keeping us feeling full longer. Due to its greater fiber content, a single serving of whole grain bread can be more filling than two servings of white bread. Fiber also moves fat through our digestive system faster so that less of it is absorbed.
Eating foods with plenty of fiber will help keep our blood sugar at a more consistent level.
Take it one step at a time: Unless you are excited to be following a very specific diet and exercise plan, do not try and change too much too fast. If you have been eating poorly and not exercising, both your body and your mind will have a lot of adjusting to do.
