Dieting and Weight Loss, a Safe Method

How many times have you or someone you know lost weight only to gain it back? The real key to dieting is therefore to eliminate the bottom of the food chain, sugar and simple carbohydrates, thus forcing our bodies to utilize the complex carbohydrates, protein, and fat that we consume. Our bodies then begin to operate as they were meant to operate.

To lose a pound of weight you have to burn 3,000 calories. When we fail to address the mental component of our weight struggles before starting a diet, we’re in fact skipping the most important part. Some believe being chronically overweight is a result of our identity. Most weight is related to something or someone that needs to be confronted and dealt with. Balance is key to any good plan.

Crash dieting is unhealthy. Bob Greene, Oprah Winfrey’s personal trainer says dieting is about changing your life, not only with how the body works, but also how the mind works. In his new NY Times bestselling book “The Best Life Diet” he emphasizes the need to understand and improve the emotional relationship with eating and food.

The reason for dieting is as important as the method used to lose the weight.

When we fail to address the mental component of our weight struggles before starting a diet, we’re in fact skipping the most important part. Being chronically overweight is a result of our identity. Most weight is related to something or someone that needs to be confronted and dealt with. Balance is key to any good plan.

Dieting is good for dropping the pounds, but dieting alone is unlikely to bring you the body of your dreams. You should also keep in mind that exercising and ramping up your fitness routine is a great way to renew your dedication to the process and your enthusiasm.

Maintaining a stable metabolism is very important for losing weight and eating frequent healthy meals produces consistent energy.

The secret to burning body fat to get to your ideal weight is that you must eat and exercise right or it simply won’t happen. Would a program that’s designed to help someone lose weight quickly work as efficiently to help someone lose weight at a slow, natural pace? You’ve guessed right. As with any weight loss you need to be a strict disciplinarian and strict to your goals.

The reason dieting is such hard work however, is what trips up the most dedicated efforts to lose weight. The number one reason dieting requires so much energy is because of the internal conflict that accompanies most weight loss attempts.

That’s what causes yo-yo dieting. I wouldn’t put too much stock in temporary weight reductions induced for food restrictions. So, low-carb dieting is just what it sounds like — you can eat protein and fat, but you must limit the amount of carbohydrates you eat.

But dieting is not without risks, especially in an age when so many fad diets clamor for attention. The desire to lose weight rapidly can lead to health problems that outweigh the benefits of dieting.

Instead of dieting, weight management is a better approach. Not only are you more likely to accomplish your weight loss goals you are more likely to maintain your eating habits.

The best way to approach dieting is to eat a balanced diet with vegetables, fruits, legumes, grains, lean meat and fish and if tolerated, low fat dairy but only in the amount needed to maintain one’s normal weight.

So, for a person who is 250 pounds but normally should be 150 pounds, the best approach is to eat a balanced diet for a 150-pound person. The discomfort of dieting is most often cited by failed dieters as the reason for discontinuing their diet.

Thus, it makes sense that curbing the appetite may be the best way to promote a successful weight loss regimen. The hardest part about dieting is the lost pounds that seem to magically reappear once the diet is over. One of the reasons people experience this dreaded rebound weight gain is because of lost muscle tissue.
