I believed in this ‘mysterious magic’ of losing weight. Over the years, I tried the
weight loss diets, bought a dvd, gym equipments that l never used, diet herbal teas and even a diet food supplement. Unsurprisingly, none of that worked until l decided to educate myself about nutrition. Then it became so simple and l watched the weight drop
off in a matter of weeks.
Some of these won’t come as a surprise. Here goes;
CUT OUT THE SUGAR OR REDUCE IT DRASTICALLY. REPLACE SUGAR
WITH PURE HONEY IF YOU NEED A SWEETENER.
REDUCE THE CARBOHYDRATES, ESPECIALLY PROCESSED ONES. (Rice, bread, pasta, etc)
EAT MORE PROTEIN,
ESPECIALLY BEANS, EGGS, FISH AND CHICKEN
REDUCE DAIRY PRODUCTS AND FAT, ESPECIALLY SATURATED FAT. OLIVE OIL IS PREFERABLE AND HEALTHIER. BUTTER IS HEALTHIER THAN MARGARINE.
EAT LOTS OF FRUITS AND VEGETABLES. Not everyone likes to eat vegetables, so find the ones you like and eat more of those.
SNACK ON NUTS AND OTHER HEALTHY ALTERNATIVES.
I do not call this a diet but a lifestyle choice. So make it a complete change of lifestyle, that way it becomes a constant. It’s worked for so many people including me. You just have to watch what you
eat. There is no quick-fix.
Instead of spending money on diets and weight loss programmes this January, why not stock up on more protein meals and healthy food and snacks. Most importantly, whatever
you eat, make sure it is small portions.
YOU NEED TO BE FIT, ESPECIALLY AS THE WEIGHT FALLS OFF. SO JOIN A GYM. However, if you cannot afford it, go jogging or take long walks. It’s free after
Weight gain is mainly due to what we eat. Change your diet and you will definitely see a change. However, if you have an existing
medical condition, you may want to consult your doctor before changing your diet.
This is my take on the whole weight loss shenanigans which has become a multibillion dollars industry.
I hope you find this helpful.
Have a fantastic week people.
