Lose Weight Without Dieting

Jul 29, 2008
The problem of obesity has undoubtedly come to your attention in one way or another. Either you or someone you know or love has battled this tragic obstacle possibly with little or no success. In the past a common cure was thought to be that of dieting but that is no longer the case.

More recently scientific data has proven that most diets will ultimately result in little or no impact on the overall problem. It seems that diets alone are often short-term and are essentially unhealthy. Most diets require that individuals adhere to unrealistic expectations. This leads to the individual feeling deprived and frustrated making following the diet guidelines drudgery.

To begin there are many reasons that individuals become overweight. A poor diet or over-eating is only one possible cause. Before an individual makes an effort to lose weight the advice of a qualified professional should be sought. This is to rule out any possible diseases or ailments that may be the cause or contributing factors to the problem.

A healthy diet should be consumed on a regular basis. A healthy diet is one that includes foods from all the major food groups and ensures that one is getting the proper nutrition needed to keep the human body functioning at its best.

Eating regular meals along with snacks is suggested. This helps to maintain the natural metabolic flow that one wants to establish in order to lose weight and maintain that weight loss.

This is where many people go wrong. They want to lose weight so they skip meals. Let me explain why it is important to eat regularly. Your body is designed in a perfect manner. It will make whatever nutrients it has last as long as possible. This plays a huge role in determining what your metabolic rate will be.

If your body becomes accustomed to getting food regularly and on a consistent level it will keep the metabolic rate higher because the body adjusts to whatever the norm is. On the other hand, if you tend to skip meals your body will slow down the metabolic rate in order to adjust for that slump in receiving nutrients, this is part of the way your body is designed to survive. For example, your metabolic rate slows down when you are sleeping.

In order to keep your metabolic rates at its optimum eat regular meals with small snacks in between. Do not try to diet but it is wise to avoid foods with empty calories. Eat foods that are nutritious and filling. And perhaps just as importantly, drink lots of water.

A healthy diet that works is really not a diet at all but instead it is a healthy lifestyle. This lifestyle includes eating right and taking care of yourself in every way possible.
