Lose Weight With The Right Diet

Aug 17, 2007
Losing weight is not about dieting such that you starve yourself. By starving or eating less you cannot lose weight. Instead if your body does not get the right quantity and quality of food, it uses up the internally stored energy to make up for the less food supplied and thus you may put on weight instead of losing as your muscles are lost and not fats.

Another myth is that if you are losing 1 kcal per day then you might as well lose 500 calories in two days, the effect of both being the same. Well, this is absolutely wrong. By doing this you may have muscle loss and loose flaccid skin which again would be a major problem in your appearance. The key to a healthy lifestyle and good body is having the right diet.

Firstly you need to have proper 3 meals during the day, out of which the breakfast is the most vital meal for the body. It is said that breakfast like a king, lunch like a queen, and dine like a pauper! You may start off your day with cereals or oatmeal, boiled eggs, fresh and home-made fruit juice, cornflakes, etc.

Your meal must be high in proteins, fibre, and complex carbohydrates which will build up your body muscles. Usually non-vegetarian food is high in protein like eggs, fish, chicken, etc. Avoid red meat in your diet. You should also have one glassful of milk everyday to build up calcium in your body to strengthen your bones and teeth. Rice, potatoes, fruits, wheat, etc contain high carbohydrates. Regularly have green leafy vegetables in your meals.

Avoid junk food like chips, hot dogs, deep fried items, cakes, sweets, soft drinks, etc.
Also avoid eating processed or canned food stuffs as they contain lot of fats or sugars. Incorporate the habit of eating salads with each meal. Use oil-free dressing if needed for the salads. Also see to it that you eat fruits after a meal. You should have fruits instead of snacks in case you feel hungry between your meals.

Along with having the above balanced diet, you should also keep in mind that your body needs copious amounts of water to full out the toxins. You should make it a habit to have a glass of water after hour; this will keep your complexion clear and glowing.

There are a number of fat burning medicines available in the market in the form of amino-acid capsules or lipotropic. However, none of these medicines would do as good to your body as following simple exercises everyday. The aft that you have on your body is not going to melt off with the above stated tips; it is just not going to add up. To burn off the excess weight you need to regularly exercise.

It is not easy to follow this regime of proper diet especially when you have so many pizzas, pastas, burgers coming up; but it certainly is not difficult, all you have to do is tame your body!
