Healthy Diet-Learn the Healthy Ways to Dieting

Jul 21, 2008
When it comes to dieting, people always think of eating less; as in eating less of everything. If this is not the case, they even resort to eating nothing. Usually, they resort to this due to one or both of the following:

1. Desperation to be thin

2. Want to lose weight the fastest way possible.

If your reason to weigh down is one of those 2 above, do not resort to starvation, please. Just like anything else done to your body, a healthy diet is always a must. This is not an option towards goring thin but a must towards a healthier you.

So what is in a healthy diet? What does it have that its opposite doesn't have? How can you tell if it is a healthy diet or not? How is it done? All in all, what makes a healthy diet different from all the rest? Here are the answers.

First of all, a diet is considered a healthy one when it allows you to eat. No diet plan, no matter how popular and proved to be effective it is, should be strict enough to tell you that you should not eat anything or minimize your food to a few spoonfuls. A proper and correct diet should be one that encourages you to eat. Why? When your body is telling you something and you are ignoring it, you will end up unable to do anything else since your mind is always thinking of your body's cravings; in short, your body will control you, this is usually the reason why some people binge and purge. To solve this, eat whenever you feel hungry, just don't go overboard; eat just enough to satisfy your craving.

In a healthy diet you must ensure that you are getting the complete nutrients and not just focusing on a specific food group. Most of the time, diet plans tell you to eat high in protein and very low amounts of carbohydrate and fats; this should not be the case. Just to give you an overview on why you should avoid this kind of diet, remember that protein is for building and repairing cells, carbohydrate is for metabolism and give you energy to do whatever it is that you want to do, and fats insulate your body from temperature changes. If you can just imagine all these things that they are supposed to be doing, do you see the reason why you need to cut down your intake for any one of them?

If you are planning to lose weight without doing a lot of exercise, your best bet however is to adjust your intake of your carbohydrates and fats to the amount that your body needs. On the other hand, if you are planning to compliment your diet with a very good workout plan, you might as well eat healthy to meet the additional demand of your body brought about by the exercise. In this way, you will not run into the risk of having accumulated fat and carbohydrates (that will be stored as triglycerides, still another form of fat) and thus, not gain weight.
