Obesity is one of the most critical problems in the United States. Obesity is on a constant rise not only in adults but in children and teenagers, which is alarming. People try to shed off those extra pounds every now and then, and being tired of listening to all those bothersome comments about their chubby look, they abruptly jump into a Zumba class, or start crash dieting, or start lifting weights. But soon enough, their motivation ends and they switch back to unhealthy diet and lethargic lifestyles. The problem is the lack of self-motivation and guidance on how to take the effective natural diet that helps in weight loss.
Although, there is a lot of information available online and on TV, guiding you as to how you should reduce your weight. If you have a subscription to Optimum TV, you would have seen many channels and programs dedicated to guiding you on fitness. And there a number of YouTube channels guiding you on proper workout regimes, and a multitude of social media pages guiding you on weight loss tips. But it’s just scattered information here and there. In this blog post, we will guide you about natural and healthy diet options.
Keep in mind that losing weight is no easy task, neither it is magic, you have to consistent about the changes that you make in your lifestyle on a constant basis, if you really want to shed off those unwanted pounds. Also, it’s about fitness and health, not about looking physically attractive only. Adopt a healthy lifestyle for your own well-being.
·Cut Down on Starches and Sugars
As a general routine, you really need to cut down on starches/carbs and sugar. Food items falling in both these categories cause the insulin rise in our body. If you are unaware of this fact, then know that insulin is the most vital fat loading hormone in human bodies. At lower insulin levels, the body begins to burn the accumulated fat instead of burning the carbs and sugars.
Lowered insulin levels let kidneys shed extra water and sodium out of the body, that causes a reduce is bloat and water weight.
Doing this will let you lose around 10 pounds or more in the very first week of this eating routine. And we are referring to both water weight and body fat. This will also reduce your appetite.
You will need an iron willpower to continue with this eating routine, and if you lack the will and self-motivation, you will give up in no time. Just in case if you are craving, know that the recommended daily range of carbs is 20-50 grams a day. So, good luck!
·Increase Your Protein, Vegies, and Fat Intake
Well, you will have to significantly lower your appetite, to begin with, but having a low carb and sugar diet, you need to have some eating options too. So, you need to have protein-rich meals, that also include vegetables (low-carb) and fats. Designing your meals with enough quantities of all three aforementioned ingredients will lower the carb intake automatically.
You need to know the protein-rich sources so that you can design your meals accordingly.
- Meat is the major source of protein, and that includes chicken, beef, bacon, pork, lamb, etc.
- Seafood is a great and healthiest source of protein. And that includes fish, trout, salmons, lobsters, shrimps, etc.
- Eggs that are pastured or Omega-3 enriched are the best.
This is not an overstatement that heavy protein intake is all good, as it boosts metabolism (by estimated calories of 80 to 100). Protein is helpful in reducing obsessive food thoughts and lowers the desire for snacking late-night.
As for low-carb veggies, here are some of the options: Broccoli, Spinach, Cauliflower, Kale, Cabbage, Celery, Lettuce, Swiss Chard, Cucumber, and so on. You can eat as much as you can because veggies are all good.
Fat Sources: Butter, Avocado oil, Olive oil, Coconut oil, and so on.
You can design 2-3 meals a day and if you are really craving have the 4th too. Note that fats are not unhealthy, as they perceived to be. Having low-carbs as well as low-fat will make you abandon the diet plan. So, do not treat fats like carbs because natural fat is all good.
·Proper Workout Regime
Although the recommended eating plan is self-sufficient and will help you lose weight if you follow it consistently, we do recommend a work-out routine to enhance the process. Going to gym 3 or 4 times a week will be most beneficial. Lifting weights is the best, but if that’s not your thing, you can pick swimming, brisk walking, or jogging alternatively.
