How To Lose Weight Naturally By Eating The Same Amount Of Food

Apr 17, 2008
People believe that you need to change what you eat completely and reduce your intake of food drastically in order to lose weight. Well, with so many Americans overweight and Obesity becoming a major problem, it is true that many people eat more than they should do. However, you can actually lose weight without reducing the amount of food you actually eat.

You see as we get older, our body does not work in the way it did before. Things change and it becomes a lot harder to burn calories. Our metabolism slows down with age naturally. Nowadays we can eat whatever and whenever we want. With 24 hour supermarkets, and ready made meals that you stick in the microwave for 4 minutes and then eat, it is no wonder people are getting fatter.

Being overweight is a major problem for so many people, but still if they knew they could lose weight and yet still enjoy the food they love so much, things could be different.

You need your metabolism to work in order to turn the calories you eat into energy. Now, it is true that some people naturally have active metabolisms and they can eat as much as they want and still not put on weight. But what about the rest? Doesn't it seem unfair that sometimes even looking at a delicious meal makes you put on 5 pounds?

Although it is true that eating less will in time help you lose weight, providing you eat less fat and calories of course, but in truth, you can actually lose weight when you eat the same amount of food each day.

A quick tip here is to remember that it is not how much you eat, as opposed to what you eat. So, if you eat large beef steaks with massive amounts of fries, think about eating a smaller steak, less fries and fill up your plate with healthy vegetables instead. The amount of food can remain the same but the total numbers of calories and fat is highly reduced. All you then do is simply take a short walk to help stimulate your metabolism a little more.

Understanding calories and how many you should eat each day will of course help when deciding on what to eat. Also, taking a natural supplement after eating can help to stimulate your metabolism and burn some extra calories without much effort on your part. A touch more exercise will help you lose weight faster, but for many that is not possible depending on how much time they have each day.

If you lose weight too fast, it has some terrible side effects, like lose skin, and that can lead to having to have an operation to remove it. Losing weight slowly and naturally is best so patience is needed.

Simply doing a little more exercise than you do normally can help you to lose a lot of weight easily. Using stairs instead of elevators, getting up to change the TV channel, take the dog for an extra walk, all little things like this will help and you will soon notice the change in yourself.

Your eating habits are important. Try eating more rice and chicken. Cereals, potatoes and of course fish are also good for you. Replace some heavy foods like red meats with more vegetables so you do not feel like you cutting back too much.

We know from scientific testing that eating little and often will help you lose weight faster. Simply eating five smaller meals a day will actually stimulate your metabolism and burn off more calories.

It may be advisable to speak with your Doctor first, or consult a nutritionist or expert in the weight loss industry.

Losing weight naturally without suffering or feeling hungry all the time really is possible when you know how. Try understanding food and what it does to your body more to help with your weight loss program.
