4 Ways To Dig Deep And Start Dieting

No matter how hard I try to sugar coat the word dieting. The thing is that the mere thought of food restriction and doing some exercise is a bit too much for most people. To deal with that, you need a plan. Here are 4 ways you can set yourself  up for a diet plan in order to lose unwanted weight.

  1. Know more about your weight loss goals. That is the first step. Obese people should obviously join a program or something as that is the most efficient route for them. People who are slightly overweight need to control their portion sizes and they will lose that extra 5 or 10 pounds that they do not like. Other things include, knowing and learning about portion sizes as that is something people are generally misguided about. You also should know about what effects exercise can have on your weight loss goals. Exercise has to be a part of your weight loss regime and that does not mean that you should join a gym or something. Any form of exercise would do, even walking which is the best if you have got plenty of time to work with.
  2. Understand your weight loss inner self. Understand what sort of a person you are in relation to your food. If you are easily tempted by foods which make you fat, then you need to remove those items from the refrigerator. Some people are just oblivious to the fact of how much they are eating. May be you like to eat in front of TV. If that is the problem you definitely need to review your portion sizes. If you are anxious most of the time then losing weight can be a bit pain the butt kind of a burden. Anxious people tend to eat food in order to make them feel better and that can pile on the calories. Then there are those people who are highly tenacious. Highly disciplined and very professional about the plan they have to follow in order to lose weight. These are the people that are going to have an easy time while losing weight.
  3. Double up on fat and unwanted weight. Diet and exercise for optimal results. People often ask if diet is more important or exercise. I say, do them both but if you do not have time then go for exercise as that is beneficial for your health in any case.
  4. Make commitment. Ask yourself some questions before you embark on the quest of losing weight. Ask yourself why you want to lose weight. Are you ready for losing weight? Can you handle setbacks and failures. Are you fully motivated and can you focus on weight loss fully. If you can answer these questions easily with certainty then you can lose weight with relative ease. Do not lose weight for someone else, do it for yourself.

Take things slowly and keep these weight loss tips in mind and you should be all fine in your road to losing weight and looking good.

Herbal treatments are easy to implement since they are natural. They have no side effects and can be beneficial to your health in every way, not just in weight loss.

3 More 100 Calorie Snacks You Can Feel Good About

Good old cereal, but with some twists

More ways you can keep fit, lose weight and keep hunger at bay. Here are 3 more snacks which are under low calories and more than that, are packed full with nutrients that your body desperately needs every single day of your life.

  1. Ever heard of square oats. Of course you have, but I bet these are not a regular in your daily diet. People who love to have cereal in their breakfast, should definitely try this one out and leave out the milk when they are on a diet. What you do is really simple. First, buy dry square oats cereal. Put 1/3 cup in baggies and then take them with you in office or your workplace wherever it may be. The best part is that these are super low calorie food and are super low in saturated fat. It is almost zero percent. You can do this with any whole grain cereal. Just be sure to stay away from sweetened varieties.
  2. Don’t associate grapes with just wine. These are filled with water and that means, a whole cup of grapes has only 62 calories. Is it not super low or what. Since they are full of water, they give you the feeling of being full and also keep your body hydrated. Grapes are also rich in vitamin k and manganese. They also have some fiber if the previous qualities were not enough. They are convenient to use as you can eat grapes raw fresh or frozen. Your choice.
  3. Pinwheel of Salmon. For a creative snack of under 60 calories. Spread 1 tablespoon on low fat cream cheese onto a slice of smoked salmon (some may call it a lox). Roll it up and you have yourself a snack high in protein and in heart healthy omega 3 fatty acids. It is a bit high in sodium (as that is used to cure salmon). If you can bare with a little less cream cheese than you can have 2 of these under 100 calories.

Snacks You Can Feel Good About

Here are 3 snacks that you can eat and not have to worry about calories or any of that stuff. You can easily have these as these food items form the ideal weight loss solutions. We all know, what ideal weight loss solutions are. These are solutions that help you lose weight and gain health in the process.

Otherwise, you can just go the celebrity way and not eat anything for days in order to lose weight. But that weight loss is meaningless as, after a while when you do start to eat, you gain all the weight back. The weight you gain back is mostly fat, as your body keeps on decreasing its metabolism when you do not exercise and keep on eating less.

If you exercise and still eat less, then that is the ideal condition but mark my words, it would take the discipline of a world class athlete to do that day in day out.

Anyway, without further a due, here are the 3 snacks you WOULD WANT to eat between meals in order to keep your hunger at bay:

  1. Pistachios. Do not just run away or stop reading this post just because of the preconceived ideas you might have with regards to pistachios. Pistachios do have high fat content but these are good fats. Your body needs them. Most of the fat is unsaturated. You can easily rack up 20 of these and still not cross 80 calories. Isn’t it just great. Apart from that, they have rich deposits of protein, fiber and some very important vitamins and minerals. Just eat them without adding any salt, that can get the sodium level high in your body and you do not want that at all.
  2. Eat more bananas. If you do not like bananas, then try frozen bananas. Slice them and then freeze them. Insert a Popsicle stick if you want to add more creativity. Put that into the freezer and after a very short time you would have a low calorie treat which you can enjoy. This would give you around 80 calories, that is something you do not get in your regular treats.
  3. Tomato soup is another 100 calorie snack that you should try out. It is full of nutrients and has 74 calories in a single cup. That is super low given that tomato soup gives you some very important disease fighting  nutrients. It has no cholesterol and very little fat. Just be sure you are not buying the cream of tomato variety, that is a bit high in calories. Also watch out for sodium high varieties. You want to keep that sodium low in your body which I just mentioned 2 minutes ago. Ok, 1 minute ago.

3 Special Foods To Make You Lose Weight

Here are the 3 new ways that I have found to kill your hunger and hence start losing weight. Try these out and let me know your thoughts on these.

  1. More oats please. Oats have special kind of filling fiber compound known as beta glucan which promotes your body to release something called CCK (you do not need to know more about this chemical). CCK is a hunger suppressing hormone. So eat your oats. Any from would do apart from the creamy ones.
  2. Beans are the perfect food. I have said it in the past. B for beans and B for best food item available (ok, I admit, that did not rhyme at all).Beans have a special kind of fiber protein balance which makes you feel full for longer. Plus, a Spanish study has found out that it also increases your metabolism.
  3. Eggs are good. Yes they are good. They are super rich in protein.It is best that you eat their whites only but as a whole even, they are very very healthy. It has been shown in a recent research done in UK that eggs help you control your hunger for up to 36 hours. Which is a lot.
