Weight loss can sometimes be tiring. After thousands of dollars spent on diet programs with all efforts to cut-down calories, it seems that you are not losing weight as you expect it.
Of course, you will then have to check with your doctor or nutritionist to see why you are not losing that much weight and you will end up with ‘the look’ that strikes the paranoia out of you.
These are just few of the challenges you may encounter when you are into weight loss programs. It can get the best out of you depending on how you take all the challenges up. Well, there is a better way to actually achieve weight loss with 3 easy reminders.
There Is Such A Thing Called ‘Real Carbohydrates’. The first thing you need to do is to identify your carbohydrate intake. All of us know that carbohydrates are the main source of energy as carbs are readily converted to glucose, the main substance that is used for energy production. All the excess carbohydrates are turned into fat when they aren’t used as energy.
Now, what you need to remember is that you need to consume ‘real carbohydrates’ by choosing foods that are not processed. Replace the processed carbohydrates with natural ones like vegetables and fruits in every meal. Momentarily avoid other carbohydrates like chips, breads, pasta, fast food meals and others.
Have you ever heard of high-biological proteins? Choose them among others. High-biological proteins are what you can think of as complete proteins. They are called such because they contain complete amino acids to provide efficient functions in terms of repairing body tissues and supplying proteins to every muscle in your body.
Amino acids work like a team: when one is missing, they cannot function well. So it is good to invest in high-biological proteins by eating natural and grass-fed meats and produce. This includes turkey, beef, chicken, lamb, pork and other animal proteins.
There are healthy fats, of course. If you think that fats are the only culprits of weight gain, you are definitely wrong. Your body also needs fats in order to function well as these substances contribute to temperature control, metabolism regulation and lubrication of vein and arteries. So, have a moderate intake of healthy fats, including avocados, coconut oil, olive oil, nuts, olives, seeds and butter.
Just remember to consume about 2-3 teaspoons of these fats at every meal. These are the three easy steps that you can always remember for you to have a significant weight loss. Start on these rules and you are off to a good start. It is good to remember that metabolism is as complex as our brain, so the notion of calorie counting does not really apply to all.
The basis of a healthy weight should come from consuming the right amount and kinds of food or to simply put it: the right balance of food. So start your meal right today by investing more on real carbohydrates, high-biological proteins and healthy fats.
