Natural Weight Loss Approach

Mar 28, 2008
If you eat correctly and keep moving, you have everything you need to know about how to prevent being overweight using a natural weight loss program; advice like this is for the most part ignored. If it were that simple, which it should be, most slimming companies would be out of business; with the number of overweight American citizens increasing, this advice obviously doesn't work. Of course, once you are overweight, you usually want to trim down for a whole lot of reasons, some related to health, others having to do with looks.

But the fact is it is a whole lot easier to prevent putting on pounds than to try losing them later on. If there is one thing we all know, it is that weight gain is likely to happen if we do not take forward-looking steps to stop it.

For some reason even when dieters who have become used to, and enjoy, a low calorie diet, they eventually drift back to old habits and start piling the pounds back on again. Natural weight loss is possible though and it can be done before you get stared at in the street or cause others problems because of your weight.

The importance of maintaining the correct weight is more than just for looks especially as the number of health problems related to weight and obesity grows. Losing weight by natural means isn't a big secret and deep down most of us understand the principles behind it.

If you are planning to use a natural weight loss approach then its success will depend on the meals you eat which should be low in fat, high in fiber, some protein and carbohydrates. A meal such as this would be something like a baked potato (complex carbohydrate), the fiber is vegetables and protein is a lean cut of meat.

Dietitians also say that the body has a capacity to retain dietary fat more than calories for regular foods so weight gain is more likely. Food manufacturers have been quick to react and have provided a huge range of low or no fat foods but despite this the American people are getting larger, the simple reason for this may surprise you!

One of the greatest delusions of the 1990s was that no fat meant non-fattening but the truth is you are often getting just as many calories from these foods; the calories are just not coming from fat. If you really want to lose weight through a program you will need to dump the fat free products and eat small healthy snacks that are high in nutrition.

Schools of thought differ on this subject but many nutritionists agree that eating smaller meals with a snack every 3 to four hours or between meals could be beneficial providing main meals are not missed. The secret to natural weight loss is easy if you just obey it; do not eat more than your body requires through normal activities and exercise.
