Eat The Right Foods If You Want To Stay In Shape

It can't be said enough, eating the right foods is the best way to lose weight. Forget about starving yourself, that's not going to work. And those weightloss food programs? They are expensive and a lot of those diet foods are actually not that good for you. But if you're set on losing the weight by signing up with one of those home-delivery weightloss programs, make sure you research the ingredients. You don't want to ingest foods that are loaded down with chemicals and preservatives. I'm not really sure how close to organic foods you get with these weightloss program diets. Knowledge is power, so do some research on just how healthy these food programs are before signing up. Ok? You want your food to be as natural and/or organic as possible. It boils down to developing a healthy food intake, a commitment to yourself, and staying clear of the wicked-whites, sugar, salt and flour. Did you know when we ingest too much sugar it breaks down the elastin in the skin, especially after age 35. Sugar reacts to our collagen and elastin in negative ways which will make us look older. Something to think about the next time you want to add sugar to your food.Choose healthy sugar substitutes like, Truvia, Stevia and ZSweet. These all natural sweeteners is nature's answer to those seeking a great tasting alternative to sugar and artificial sweeteners. The way we prepare food carries a big factor in whether you'll keep excess weight off too. Frying is a BIG no-no. The reactions in foods when they are fried can effect our health plus the coatings people usually dip their foods in before frying may taste really good but it's not really good for our bodies. Consider baking, broiling or boiling the foods you usually fry. You'll feel healthier for it and have a better check up next time. If you're not sure whether you have a thyroid problem check with your doctor, this can lead to weight gain if not kept under control. Otherwise there's no reason you can't keep a healthy weight by following these suggestions. As you get more familiar with what to eat and what not to eat, it'll become like second nature for you to choose the good-for-you-foods. It's not that hard once you've made up your mind, but you're going to have to want to participate in your life for this to work.That's right. If you change to eating healthy, first learn about those foods that burn fat, increases the metabolism. Foods that help prevent diseases. Don't eat fried foods. Eat brightly colored veggies and fruits. Stop eating at those fast food restaurants. Commit to an exercise routine, you won't only add years to your life span, you'll add healthy years. Of course this is not an easy task. So start with changing how you see yourself. Learn to love and respect yourself. It's also a good idea to keep a journal about yourself and to reference back to it. When I look at myself in the mirror, which I'm not particularly fond of doing, I see that I need to keep working at my body. I know I have a few more pounds to lose. I'm not bathing suit ready. LOL. But the difference is my attitude about myself has changed. I no longer look away in discouragement or disgust. I look and see improvement, some weight loss, I feel balanced and I smile. I tell myself I'm doing good, I'm feeling better about me, and that's what I hold on to, that keeps me motivated. Oh and if I were you, get into the habit of not using the bathroom scale (unless advised to do so by your doctor.) As you get into exercising regularly you'll start to build muscle, muscle weighs more than fat.So if you step on the scale and you've gained instead of lost or you haven't lost what you thought you should have but you've been working your food program and exercising regularly, don't despair. As your routine gets more involved and your body starts to respond to your new lifestyle, you'll see the changes in your body. It won't happen overnight, but it does come. Without a doubt, your body will change you will lose that excess weight. But remember, be fair to yourself, don't have unrealistic expectations about how long a period of time it should take. Experience shows when we commit to ourselves and we are determined to achieve what we have set out to do, things have a way of working in our favor. Persistence stamps out Impatience. So what ever you do, don't stop. It's when things seem their toughest that we must not give up. Enjoy the day!Winning The Weightloss Battle Free DownloadCopyright (c) 2011.
