How Eating Proper Nutrition Will Help You To Loose Weight

I can hear you hollering “I’ve tried diet after diet and I can’t keep weight off…please help me loose weight permanently”

Going on a diet may help you shed pounds initially but the results are often very short lived. As we all know, most diets require us to restrict our caloric intake to the point where our bodies are literally starving.  You see, not getting enough calories slows down your metabolism, which in turn causes the loss of lean muscle tissue which then deprives your body of the fuel it needs to perform thus causing your body to hold on to stored fat for energy.  Wow indeed!  Also, in addition to this, diets are miserable, frustrating, depressing and not sustainable over the longer term.  There are three good reasons why;-

Healthy Foods Are Naturally Low In Calories

Unlike processed junk, healthy foods such as fruits, vegetable, legumes, raw nuts, seeds, poultry, eggs and lean meats and beans are all naturally low in calories. In fact, when you eat reasonable quanties of these foods, you automatically reduce your caloric intake and loose weight without feeling hungry or deprived.

If you eat processed foods, your body doesn’t have a clue what to do with the calories and automatically stores them as fat. When you eat healthy foods, your body actually benefits from the calories so they are less likely to be stored as blubber.

Proper Nutrition Helps Fuel Your Body

If your looking at a diet plan and it tells you not to eat healthy carbohydrates, then discard it. Run away from it fast. Turn the page. Your body absolutely has to have healthy carohydrates (remember the word healthy) to survive.

Truly nutritious eating plans will allow plenty of fresh vegetables, fruits and beans in your diet. These foods provide the healthy carbohydrates you need to fuel your body and keep your metabolism performing properly.

Eating Healthy To Burn Fat

Fantastic news. Eating a healthy diet that includes protein can help you build lean muscle tissue which can kick start your metabolism into high gear. Want to send that double chin packing? Then this is the way.

When you eat protein rich foods, your body releases a hormone that helps you burn fat. Protein also helps to fill you up quicker, thereby enabling you to eat less as you feel fuller, quicker.  Some nutritious protein sources include beans, raw nuts, poultry, lean meats, and eggs.

So when you want to loose the pounds, don’t put yourself through the drama of dieting only to be disappointed with the end results.  It’s a fact that healthy eating is a much better option for dropping those unwanted pounds.  And if you want to keep dropping the weight then keep eating healthy foods, dring plenty of water and get lots of exercise.
