What foods you should never eat?

What foods you should never eat?
So, What’s all the rumor about Which 5 Foods To Never Eat and Why?

If you think that losing fat requires you to take …

  • … Diet pills,
  • … Eat packaged cardboard diet foods in child size portions,
  • … Do exhausting exercise,
  • … Starve or deprive yourself,

… This article is not for you!.. Especially if you enjoy doing these things to yourself.

 

Hi, Isabel De Los Rios here, I am the leading sertified nutritionist at the Beyond Diet club. Today I am going to teach you how to lose weight without doing the things above to your self.

That’s because they work against your body!

… I am also going to tell you about 5 foods that you are probably eating everyday because they are marketed to you as healthy!

These foods also work against your body!.. and, when you stop eating them, you can lose weight

  • Safely
  • Naturally … a ‘an for a
  • Long term

 

Before I became a certified nutrition blogger, I battled my weight for 7 brutal years. I was absolutely desperate to lose the fat that just kept piling on me, no matter what I did!

 

Before and After Picture of me. Flabby arms and legs on the left, Bright and shine on the right.

… and After 7 years of failed diets, I learned what I am about to teach you. Because when I stopped eating the foods that I am going to tell you about today, I shed 65 pounds.

About 25-30 pounds was belly fat, and the rest was an all the usual other places, my arms, my rear and my thighs.

That was 7 years ago and I haven’t regain the weight. I call that might Not-A-Diet, because I wasn’t hungry.

 In fact I ate really good food and enjoyed my favorite treats  … I didn’t count anything like caloriesfat grams. My skin cleared up, I had more energy and I was nicer to myself & other people.

I still eat this way because I love how it makes me feel. It’s delicious and it’s nourishing. Which is not what we think of diets,

… so believe me when I say,

  • your struggles with your weight are Not Your Fault!

There is a lot of deliberate, misinformation floating around the internet about how to eat healthy and lose weight.

What foods you should never eat?

That’s because the  BIG FOOD  corporations make huge fortunes getting you to eat as much of their products as possible, especially the foods I am going to tell you about today.

… Then, the diet companies they own makes small fortunes from selling you weight loss strategies They Know Don’t Work!

Otherwise, they wouldn’t make money!

How I learned about those foods is kinda of embarrassing. When I began dieting, I wanted to keep 10 extra pounds from turning into 20. So I decided to try one of those low calorie prepackaged food diets.

I lost the fat all right and as soon I started eating real food again, I gained all that fat back + interest. By the time I stopped Yo-Yo dieting, I had rebounded my way all the way up to 205 pounds and I had paid about total of $17 000 of the privilege.

My last diet – I was desperate …

… Was supposed to be 30-Day juice cleanse.

I was miserable …

My family was miserable …

… the furniture had teeth marks in it and our pets were looking pretty tasty.

On day 8, I was driving by a very famous fast food restaurant and I can almost taste the french fries.

Before I could stop my self, I pulled into the parking lot and found myself standing in line at the counter.

Practically drooling … when a thought popped into my head …

If I chew these fries, just the fries no ketchup, just for the taste and spit them out. Those calories won’t count?

 

… It was the most completely horrifying moment of my life. I ended my juice cleanse right there on the spot with large fries, a bacon double cheese burger and a large strawberry milkshake.

Nothing ever tasted so good …

As you might imagine, I regained the weight so fast my head spun. And I realized that it had gotten pretty bad, because after 7 years of dieting and hundreds of pounds of rebound weight gain (and loss) topping out at 205 pounds I knew just 1 thing …

… If you ever need to gain weight – JUST DIET! Works great!

EVERY … SINGLE … TIME!

But then something happened that totally changed my life.

One day at work, my perfectly slender co-worker and I were chatting over lunch.

I remember it clearly: I was sipping a diet shake, and she was eating a full place of food. Suddenly and I am still not sure what made me say this, I asked her:

What’s your secret? How can you eat to much great food and not blow up like a blimp?

… I guess a had cought her of gard, but after a second she replied

I love to eat! So I just make sure I eat the right foods, in the right combinations, at the right time. I just don’t believe in dieting.

I blushed bright red, looked down at my diet shake, and quickly changed the subject.

At first I thought, it can’t be that easy! She’s gotta have a super fast metabolism, or work out for hours or just be a genetic freak!

… But what she said got me thinking?

So for the next few days, I took notes about exactly what she ate for breakfast and lunch, then fixed it for myself the next day.

And something incredible happened …

… After a week, I had to tighten the belt on my work pants – they were practically failing off!

Even better, I realized I was a lot less grouchy, and my skin was clearing up, too!

Once I’ve broke the code on how food really affected my body, I developed a simple, insanely effective plan.

The very first thing I did was to stop eating these five foods that practically force us to become fat, and started eating what I now knew, were the right foods in the right combinations at the right time.

And I shed 65 pounds in a lot less time than it took me to gain all of that weight.

Also it was much, much, much easier.

Because within weeks, I had more energy than I’d had in years and I had fewer and fewer aches and pains.

And the more weight fell off me the better I felt.

I went from being so heavy, I was out of breath climbing stairs or walking around the block, to learning to tango with my husband and hiking with our kids.

Pretty soon, I was shopping for a whole new wardrobe in a size 6.

I gave all my old clothes away, knowing I would never wear them again.

… I have to say … That Felt Good!

Especially the day I walked into the lingerie store and I … bought something that made both me and my husband smile … 

Not long after that, I achieved another goal … becoming a nutritionist.

I immediately began working with people who were stuck in the Yo-Yo cycle of dieting … Just like I had been.

After 10 years of helping people lose weight, I know not-eating these foods works for almost everyone.

Of course we gain-and-lose weight differently, depending on whether we’re male or female, our age and activity levels, even whether we’ve had children or our genetics.

But these five particular foods practically force the human body to produce fat-storing and appetite hormones …

… Some of us just get lucky and produce less of them and

… many of us aren’t that lucky.

 Even worse,  the damage these foods do to you doesn’t end with your weight, your waist line, and your self esteem.

These foods can also dramatically increase your risk of serious illnesses!

So you should avoid eating these 5 foods regardless or your physical condition. And not-eating these foods will work for you even if you only not eat a few of them.

You don’t have to plunge into some kind of super-perfect diet to begin seeing encouraging progress in a matter of days.

 I have to be 100% honest and warn you:  Everyone is different!

But I hear all the time from people who’ve dropped a few pounds or taken in their belts a hole and sometimes two …

… that their skin is clearing up and they have more energy because they’re feeding their muscles and not their fat.

So eliminate any and all distractions, and listen up.

You can take notes if you want to, because I absolutely, and passionately believe in your right to have the body, nature intended you to have …

  • Trim
  • Attractive
  • Healthy and …
  • Energetic
You probably have all the answers you need to lose your unwanted fat right in your own kitchen.

All you need to know is what eating healthy really is, because it’s not what most people think it is.

It’s not about “diet” health bars, or eating berries, celery, and carrots.

When you consume the right amount of carbs with the right amount of proteins, the fat will burn off naturally.

 It’s that simple! 

Now, I’m betting three of these five foods will shock you, like they did me. But let me start with one that isn’t a food, it’s actually a drink.

A drink you’ve been told over and over “How healthy it is for you.”

It’s concentrated orange juice.

 

Have you ever seen those commercials that tell you should starting your day with a big glass of concentrated orange juice is really a good idea?

  • The truth is it’s probably one of the worst things you can do to your body.

… And it’s not just ‘Ojay

Most concentrated fruit juices can cause problems around the waistline.

These include concentrated juices like cranberry juice, apple juice and other concentrated fruit juices.

You might be wondering how is this possible? Isn’t fruit good for you?

Well … I knew the problem wasn’t the fruit, so I discovered how fruits are concentrated into juice!

You see, many companies remove the fiber and other nutritious elements out of the fruit during the “concentrating” progress.

The fiber in fruit normally reduces the spike in blood sugar. With the fiber taken out, you are essentially left with sugar water.

And when your blood sugar is too high, it puts your body in fat-storing mode. Essentially telling your body to store anything you eat, as fat.

Blood sugar levels are directly related to insulin levels. Insulin is also known as your fat-storing hormone. This hormonal imbalance with insulin can cause weight gain because of the raised blood sugar levels.

Most concentrated fruit juices have just as much, or even more sugar than soda!

Contrary to what commercials tell you, starting your day with a big glass of concentrated juice is a really bad decision!

The excess sugar can spike your blood sugar and put your body in fat-storing mode. Excess sugar in our diet is probably the number one thing to be careful of. And it’s not just concentrated juice you have to worry about. A lot of processed foods have excess sugar in them. And it’s disguised in scientific sounding names like:

  • High fructose corn syrup
  • Dextran
  • Dextrose
  • Fruit juice concentrate like I just mentioned

Excess sugar in your diet can cause your blood sugar levels to spike, which leads to an insulin overload, and puts your body in fat-storing mode.

The food in drug administration has warned that there are over 50 different Known Poisons and Toxins substances in the Average American Grocery Cart!

These chemicals combined can cause hundreds of different diseases and can even be fatal in some cases.

Now, the second fat-storing food can also increase your weight, but it also has far more serious health risks.

Fat-storing food number 2 is Margarine

 

Like many oils and spreads, most margarines contain trans fat. Trans fats are formed when hydrogens are added to make it solid and less likely to spoil. It’s added to prolong shelf life, but ingesting these trans fats can increase the risk for cardiovascular disease as well as weight gain.

Cardiovascular disease is on the rise with heart disease being the number one killer in America as worldwide too.

Trans fats are also been proven to increase your LDL levels which is commonly know as bad cholesterol. While at the same time wiping out your HDL levels or your good cholesterol.

So it’s a double whammy on your body!

  • It can cause you to gain weight, wipe out your good cholesterol, increase your good cholesterol by building up plaque in your arteries, and do more harm than good!

As a certified nutritionist for the Beyond Diet club, I teach people to adjust what they’re eating to more healthy alternatives, like butter instead of margarine.

  • Butter has fat in it too, but it’s a saturated fat that your body can burn for fuel instead of building up plaque in your arteries, like trans fats can do.

You’ll start eating foods that don’t wreak havoc on your hormones, your arteries, or your blood sugar levels and Your body will immediately thank you as it sheds inches and melts the extra pounds away … (You’ll learn more about that in a minute)

Next let’s get to fat-storing food number 3

… Which was quite a shock for me!

It’s Whole Wheat Bread. Are you surprised? – I was too!

 

It’s not just whole wheat bread either, It’s other breads, pastas, and other “comfort foods” that all add up to making it very hard for you to get lean and healthy.

Comfort foods are usually those “high carb” meals we all love.

Many comfort foods include apple pie, cakes, muffins, pasta’s and pizza.

I knew that high carb comfort foods can make you fat.

But If you are like me, you love these foods and you don’t want to give them up.

  • Well, as it turns out, you don’t have to.

My own problems losing weight are what led me to become a certified nutritionist.

I could never seem to get rid of those extra 20 to 30 pounds of belly fat. I stopped eating the sweets and was eating healthier. And I would even exercise … which helped lose some of the belly fat …

… But it always came back when I couldn’t continue my routine because my life just got too busy again …

There’s a saying in the fitness industry that

‘You can’t exercise your way out of poor nutrition.’

What that means is that no amount of exercise will help you, if you’re not eating nutrient-dense food that your body needs to metabolize.

And I always thought my weight had a lot to do with the carbs I was eating …

But the real key was understanding how my body metabolizes these carbohydrates, and what causes these cravings in the first place!

When carbs are combined with the right amount of other foods, like proteins, it doesn’t raise your blood sugar levels and puts your body in fat-storing mode.

You see, there are 2 kinds of carbs:

Low carbs, which are your greens, most veggies and some fruits.

And then there’s high carbs, the ones I’d love and didn’t want to give up. Things like pasta, bread, sweets and even beer and wine. And when you eat them by themselves, they can cause you to gain weight.

Before I became an nutritionist, here is what my family and I would eat on a typically day.

    • pancakes for breakfast,
    • burger for lunch, and
    • chicken for dinner

But the problem with these meals is that they don’t have the right ratio of high carbs and low carbs to protein.

Food Ingredients That Havoc Your Health – #3 Is Awkward

Food Ingredients That Havoc Your Health – #3 Is Awkward

You can be better food consumer and here is how:

The so called health foods you consume every day, such as 100% natural fruit juices, cereals, breads, fruit cups, and yogurt contain sugars and other additives, and more often than not, believe it or not, they are contributing to your decline in health!

You probably thought it was just the junk food – Ice cream, potato chips, pastries and pizzas but it’s not the case.

Like most people you probably thought:

I only eat this stuff every once in a while. It’s not gonna kill me.

Well … unfortunately, that every once in a while is more often than you think.

Even if you treat yourself once or twice a week, the health foods which are touted to be nutrient-dense, contain many of the same ingredients as junk food.

And if you aren’t feeling the negative effects now, they will catch up with you later.

But, even knowing that desperate times call for desperate measures, you can still adjust few things and still suit your delicious needs.

Simply done, you can change your diet without sacrificing flavorful meals and treats altogether.

There are more than you know, genius internet bloggers, who have uncovered healthy ways to make our favorite treats and comfort foods without ruining the taste.

Believe it or not, there are nutritious substitutes for every unhealthy food you can think of, so get ready to Google some recipes, because what you should indeed and seriously do is stop eating:

#1 to start with and make sure you avoid is …

      • Processed and Artificial Sweeteners

Simple said, the refined sugar consumption in america is astonishingly high!

Familiar or not, it’s true, refined sugar, high fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners contain a harmful ingredients which are literally destroying your body and blood vessels.

This is nothing like the fructose found in whole fruit. The sugar found naturally in whole fruits is accompanied by nutrientsantioxidants and bioflavonoids. The sweet stuff used by the food industry lacks the health benefits, and is married to glucose to speed up fructose absorption.

Refined sugar is made of empty calories, and is devoid of nutrients, protein, enzymes, and healthy fats.

Food Ingredients That Havoc Your Health – #3 Is Awkward

From that description alone, you’d think sugar is a filler food. Unfortunately, it’s a drug. It’s so damn hard to stop eating chocolates, pastries, cereals, ice cream, and other processed foods because sugar is addictive.

It’s not the strawberry or chocolatey flavors you’re in love with, it’s the sugar in the food you’re addicted to.

How so?

Fructose tricks your metabolism, disabling your body’s appetite control. Fructose fails to stimulate the release of insulin. Insulin is responsible for suppressing ghrelin, the hunger hormone, and stimulating leptin, the satiety hormone.

Since fructose circumvents this chemical process, you end up eating bowl after bowl of cereal, an entire container of ice cream, or an entire pizza in one sitting.

Then you want more food. So you end up eating more and more food.

Meanwhile, fructose sends your blood sugar through the roof, turns into fat, increases LDL, and raises your blood pressure. Then you end up with a racing heart like you just ran a marathon.

Yeah, sugar does that.

In addition, fructose causes inflammation throughout your entire body, contributing to cancer and other inflammatory conditions, such as allergies. Sugar also depletes the body of minerals during digestion, wrecking your immune system, eats collagen, the protein that makes your skin smooth and firm, and dehydrates your cells, causing dryness and puffy skin.

Almost every processed food contains refined sugars, including breads, desserts, breakfast bars, cereals, yogurt, fruit juices, and other sweetened drinks and goodies.

Simple said, everything that is factory made.

But,

… despite all the information above, you can still satisfy your sweet tooth by deploying more whole foods into your daily diet, delicious whole and rest assure healthy foods like oats, fruits and veggies, and using honey and stevia to sweeten homemade drinks and baked goods.

2nd thingy of a food you should stop consuming is …

  • Refined Grains

White rice, breads, pastas and cereals are also thought to be nutritious and filling additions to any meal.

Look,

If the grain was unrefined, that might be true. But the stuff used in processed foods and with most meals goes through high heat, bleaching, deodorizing, coloring and fragmenting, diminishing the nutrient value and creating a toxic filler food.

Refined grains contain harmful additives, very little fiber, and are high in gluten.

Gluten is a glue-like substance that is difficult to digest, and prevents nutrient absorption.

It accumulates in the gut lining, inflaming the GI tract and creating small holes in the intestines, known as “leaky gut” syndrome.

Certain food particles, such as sugar and food additives, exit the intestines through these holes, circulating in the bloodstream and causing systemic inflammation. Your white blood cells attack these foreign bodies.

… And because the particles are circulating through your body, your immune system assaults your body, creating an autoimmune condition!

Next you might consider avoiding is …

  • Vegetable oils

Also called and know how omega-9 oils. These are detrimental to our health due to over-processing.

Oils from rapeseed (canola oil) soybean, corn, and other seed and vegetable oils can only be removed using chemical solvents, deodorizers, and intense heat, making them harmful to ingest.

These oils come from genetically modified crops which contain high amounts of pesticides. They are extracted using solvents such as Petroleum and lye, processed with heat and acid to remove solids, and treated with chemicals to improve color, smell and taste.

These oils are high in omega-6 and polyunsaturated fats. This is a problem, considering that 97 percent of the human body fat content is saturated and monounsaturated fats.

Only 3 percent is polyunsaturated fats, and half of that 3 percent is omega-3 fatty acids.

Since many of us have replaced saturated fats with polyunsaturated fats, our body has no choice but to use polyunsaturated fats for cell production and repair.

Unfortunately,
these fats oxidize quickly, and cause cell mutation. These mutated cells cause inflammation within the arteries, cancer, and reproductive disorders

Most vegetable oils contain preservatives which produce carcinogens in the body, and are linked to liver/kidney damage, immune problems, infertility or sterility, high cholesterol, and behavioral problems in children.

Vegetable oils are extremely damaging to the reproductive system and the developing bodies of unborn babies and children.

This is because cells are reproducing and dividing at high rates in the reproductive system and the growing bodies of developing babies and children, increasing risk of mutation and further complications when these cells are made of the wrong fats

4th type of foods and probably most discussed about are …

  • Processed foods

Packaged foods are high in dyes, deodorizers, addictive flavorings and fortified nutrients.

Toxic additives such as artificial flavorings and sweeteners, MSG, trans fat, food dyes, Nitrate and Nitrite, and potassium bromate are notorious carcinogens, neurotoxins, allergens, and contribute to heartbrain, and blood sugar problems.

Also, fortified nutrients are a gimmick. Fortified nutrients, or synthetic nutrients, are only necessary if a food has been heated and treated to the point that naturally-occurring nutrients are destroyed.

Synthetic nutrients are derived from harmful substances such as coal tar, ammonia, formaldehyde, petroleum, refined oils and sugars.

These “nutrients” are treated as foreign substances by the body, and are eliminated. They are also toxic and inhibit nutrient absorption.
If it’s in bags, boxes or cans, nine times out of ten, you shouldn’t eat it.

The foolproof way to figure out if it’s healthy is to read the ingredient list. If you see words you don’t recognize or ingredients that you can’t find outside in nature, put it back.

Simple said,..

Do Not Eat Foods With Ingredients You Can’t Pronounce!

5th as last for today’s reading is …

  • Soy

Sorry vegans, vegetarians and Chinese food lovers but this isn’t the nutrient powerhouse you thought it was.

High in lectins, soy has the same effect as sugar on the appetite, suppressing the release of the hunger hormone.

It also is high in phytates, which prevent nutrient absorption, goitrogens, which inhibits thyroid function, and protace inhibitors, preventing protein digestion.

Known for its high levels of plant estrogens, soy also causes hormonal imbalance, leading to lower sex drive, developmental and emotional problems, and a decline in skin, muscle, and bone health.

Fermented soy products, such as nato, miso and tempeh are healthy, since fermentation drastically reduces lectin and phytate content.

Conclusion:

The doors are wide open and food corporations seem to not miss the opportunity making us most wanted customers.

You see, the choice is yours. Educate and live healthier life or suffer the consequences later.

Food addiction hot and most discussed topic of what to eat and what avoid eating.

Now it’s your time to get involved …

Tell us, what you eat, what you avoid eating and what’s the difference doing so.

High Fiber Foods, Trans Fats and Other Killers I am Aware Of!

High Fiber Foods, Trans Fats and Other Killers I am Aware Of!

High Fiber Foods

In this chapter, I will give you some quick facts about fiber and some foods you should never eat.

Fiber is a nutrient which is originally healthy for the human body, and there are two kinds of fiber: Insoluble and Soluble fiber!

Insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water and it’s health benefits are of course, weight loss and digestive health. That’s why it helps prevent constipation. You can find fiber in wheat cereals, vegetables, and in whole grains. The reason why soluble fiber is so healthy, hoever, is that it regulates blood sugar levels and reduces cholesterol.

So both kinds of fibers play their own role in your body. That’s why it’s important to eat a lot of it!

It has been proven numerous times, and although the white spaghetti, roles, bread, and macaroni may taste a little better and don’t fill you up as fast, they are not as nearly as nutritious as the brown and whole grain ones.

For example,

Studies have shown that by eating foods such as oeatmeal or brown rice, your body burns calories twice as fast.

Additionally,

Fiber reduces the risk of heart disease and diabetes, and improves your LDL cholesterol level.

Here are some foods that contain a lot of fiber:

Bran cereal, muffins, etc. Celery
Bananas Chicken breast
Low-fat milk Green beans
Apple with skin Brown rice
Orange juice Whole wheat roles
Tomatoes Beans
Salads Lentils
Whole grain bread Pears
Carrots

Trans Fats and Other Killers

Not only is it just wise to avoid processed sugars, and eat your grains, fruits, and vegetables, but one of the main ingredients that is making so many people in society overweight, is the wrong kinds of fat.

Become educated and learn more about different fats there are by reading this part here, and you’ll be more aware of what you are eating and how to avoid gaining weight like crazy!

Let’s keep it simple.

I am going to divide the food fats into three different categories: good fats, mediocre fats, and bad fats.

Let’s start out with the best ones.

Good Fats

Those are mostly prevalent in vegetables, seeds, fish, and nuts. They have less hydrogen atoms mixed into their carbon chains. They are liquid at room temperature, not solid. That’s how you recognize them.

There are two kinds of “good” fats:

  • Polyunsaturated fats

and

  • Monounsaturated fats.

Polyunsaturated fats are those you usually pour as liquid oil into a pan. Among them are sunflower oil, corn oil, and safflower oil. Your body needs those fats, and your body gets them from food.

They build cell membranes and are good for the covering of nerves.

There are two main types:

Omega-6 fatty acids and Omega-3 fatty acids. Both have health benefits.

Foods that contain good omega-3 fatty acids are in: mackerel, salmon, flaxseeds, walnuts, sardines and soybean oil. They prevent heart disease and strokes.

Foods with healthy Omega-6 farry acids are mong others: soybeans, corn oils, sunflower, and walnuts.

Foods you can eat which contain good fats are: Peanut oil, olive oil, avocados, and nuts. They are often found in the Mediterranean diets and dishes.

Definitely, don’t underestimate the health benefits of olive oil. Having been to Turkey, Spain, Italy and Greece myself, I realize how much they use it and how good it is for you, especially if it’s minimally processed.

Mediocre Fats

Saturated fats are solid at room temperature. They are common in the American eating standard.

Saturated fats can be found in milk and milk products, red meat, cheese, and a lot of commercially manufactured foods.

If your diet includes a lot of saturated fats, it can increase your cholesterol level and harm your LDL cholesterol, which blocks arteries and the heart, so it is better to limit the intake of those fats each day.

Bad Fats

These are the killers! They are the worst kinds of fats that make you gain weight and cause all the annoying and lethal diseases and conditions.

The bad fats are called “trans fats .” They are a byproduct of a process called “hydrogenation.” This evil process turns healthy oils into solids to make sure they don’t become sour.

In a way, it’s the right method for companies to preserve their products and keep flavors intact, but they definitely aren’t healthy.

Sometimes, trans fats are called “partially hydrogenated oil.”

Trans fats can damage the LDL choesterol in your bloodstream and reduce the amount of positive HDL cholesterol. They create inflammation, stroke, diabetes, heart disease, and other conditions.

Every time you eat 2% of calories from trans fats, you have a 23% higer risk of heart disease.

Trans fats are solid at room temperature. They can be found in stick margarine, pork and beef fat, butter, but also in cookies, cake, french fries, and a lot of fast food products.

Trans fats are in a lot of greasy, processed foods nowadays.

Make sure you always check packages for trans fats and cut down on your visits to fast food restaurants or snack bars if interested of starting a much leathier lifestyle :)

To wrap it up, now you know too about what are and which high fiber foods you should eat, and the type of trans fats and other killers you must and should avoid in order to presrve your health and stay alive as much as possible.

How To Eat Healthy Using Your Kitchen and This 5.4 Minute Reading

Although you know you need to be eating healthy foods, old habits can keep creeping in and make you feel you just can’t get on track. The media and marketing agencies create unrealistic expectations in our mind about how we should look. Television and movies are always implying that you should look thinner and be sexier. Magazines try to sell diet product after diet product, and people keep finding that they don’t work. Or when they do, you gain back all the weight after of you stop using the product.

This is unfortunate, because eating healthy can be fairly simple. Simple does not necessarily mean easy, of course, but it’s not as complex as many advertisements claim. By making some changes, you can begin to take control of your eating habits and allow your body to guide you to the right weight for you.

  • Don’t Eat To Lose Weight

This is the biggest, and most difficult, step in eating healthy. Many people in the United States, and indeed throughout the world, equate “healthy” with “thin”. But the truth is, those two things don’t have nearly as much connection to each other as people think. It’s true that being overweight can lead to certain health problems, but many of those health problems can be found in people who are thin, as well. Not only that, but being underweight can lead to just as many problems as being overweight, but doctors are less likely to look for them since the standard thought process is that thin means healthy.

So instead of eating to lose weight, eat to be healthy. This doesn’t mean you should never count calories, but calorie counting is only worthwhile if you know how many calories you need on a daily basis. Nor does it mean you should cut anything deemed “unhealthy” from your diet.

What it means is that you should make sure you’re getting an appropriate amount of food, and that you’re treating vegetables and fruits as your main substance. Meat is fine, as well, but try to make sure it’s not overly processed. Essentially, think more vegetables, less processed food, and you’ve got a good start.

  • Learn What You Need

What this means in practical terms is that you should always base your food plans on your real life, not on the life a diet plan expects you to have. If you work a physical job, you may need more calories than a certain diet plan suggests. If you work indoors a lot and don’t get much sun, you may need a higher amount of vitamin D. Eggs may be a big part of your food plans, but it may be that eating eggs too often makes you stop enjoying eggs, which in turn makes you stop eating them.

Essentially, don’t think about what you “should” be doing. Think about what you actually do, and base your plans off of that. Otherwise, you’ll go right back to your old eating habits.

  • Buy The Right Foods

Avoid buying frozen foods when you can. This is especially true for any “microwave dinner” type food. These are generally loaded down with salt and other chemicals in an effort to keep them preserved for as long as possible. Buy fresh vegetables and meats, and take time to cook your food yourself.

  • Don’t Think Of It As A Diet

The problem U.S. culture has with diets is that they’re always talked about as a limited time thing. You go on a diet, you lose weight, and then you stop. That’s a recipe for gaining back your weight.

Instead, think of a lifestyle change. Think of having different eating habits. Consider any change you make as a permanent change, something you’ll be doing from that point on. If you can’t do it, then you shouldn’t start that particular plan. It may help you lose weight, but if it’s not sustainable, then you’ll go right back to your old habits.

Ultimately, eating healthy is a matter of being prepared and knowing what to eat. So take the time to educate yourself, and take a few minutes to prepare in advance. You’ll be glad that you did.
