Make Any Diet 5 Times More Effective

May 31, 2008
If you're looking for a way to jack your fat-burning sky-high, here's a great tip for you, focus on single ingredient meals, especially after 6:00pm.

Do take note, this is not a long-term strategy, nor is it something you should do every day. Aim for consuming 3-4 meals per week at first that contain only one ingredient.

Well, guess WHAT ingredient that is?

That ingredient is : PROTEIN

Eating hard proteins foods is a great way to get lean. You can do this using animal or vegetarian based protein foods. The key is one ingredient. Consume your normal meal's calories all in protein. This will help elevate your thermogenic rate and keep that fat burning. If you select a second ingredient, select celery and lots of it. Celery will fill you up and help expend even more calories in the fat-burning process.

Are you like me and have a hard time with eating beans and grains, despite the fact they're supposed to be 'healthy'? Do you gain fat when you eat even "non-refined" healthy carbs like brown rice? I did -- until recently.

Here's your mid-week tip :

Soak all grains and legumes for 24 hours prior to cooking them. Don't worry, they taste the same. They're even more fluffy. But, more important than that they are now "lectin-free"...or 90% there.

What are lectins?

Lectins are protein and protein-family substances that love to bind to stuff and mess with your body's cellular structure. The have a nasty habit of rendering even the most healthy of foods (almost always plant-based) very unhealthy for you to consume. This does not have to be. Simply soaking brown rice and legumes (beans) in water for 24 hours, according to food allergy researcher Dr. David Freed, causes the lectins in both foods to be destroyed 10 minutes into cooking.

This will not happen if you cook grains normally. This is why you may be sniffling or having a hard time with "good carbs" in your diet. There are other reasons, but I've found this to be the ace in the hole. Try it and see if your grains don't go down better.

Eating too much or not being physically active enough will make you overweight. Eating at odd irregular times would upset your whole diet. Eating slowly will not only give you satisfaction from every bite but you will also realize when to stop. Eating meals and small snacks that contain lean protein and fiber every few hours helps keep blood sugar levels steady.

A good weight loss program is based on individual lifestyle. Overall, exercising is a must if you are serious about weight loss. This is probably the most important thing which determines whether your weight loss attempt will be successful. If you want to lose weight, you have to have a weight loss plan. Your weight loss motivation will go from strength to strength, and the thoughts of giving up will be the thoughts of the past. You need to have a universal approach to eating for life.
