5 Natural Weight Loss Tips For A More Beautiful You
Living a powerful, healthy, fit and trim life is a true goal for
many of us. Despite the easy cures in the form of weightloss drugs
and dangerous fad diets, there are still plenty of natural, safe
habits we can make a part of our daily routine to start us on this
path. Here are 5 good ideas to get you started.
1. If you can say no to alcoholic beverages please do. Alcoholic
beverages are not good for you. Beer can be fattening and the
rest of the alcoholic drinks may not be fattening by themselves but
after a couple of swigs you will be in no position to watch your diet
and your appetite will also be something to battle with.
2. Go ahead eat cheat food, but only for flavor. There are many
things which you have to avoid from your diet but which you may have
an undying craving for. Do not avoid them altogether. You could call
them cheat foods and indulge in them once in a while. But take care
just to tingle your taste buds. Don't hog on them. Instead, share
them with others.
3. Try and adopt a vegetarian diet for at least some of your menu
planning. A vegetarian diet is undoubtedly better for those of us
watching our diet. There are a lot of advantages of keeping to a
vegetarian diet but I don't want to sing an ode to vegetarianism now.
What I would suggest is keep to a vegetarian diet as much as you can.
Make a vegetarian diet a twice or three time a week event if you find
it impossible to give up eating all those animals.
4. Choose low fat substitutes or no fat substitutes. There are
plenty of low fat or even no fat substitutes available in the market
so why not choose wisely. It is much better for you heart too. Many
people just go for shopping and pick up whatever they can. They do
not bother to find out if there are any substitutes for the thing
they are looking for.
5. Most importantly, avoid crash diets. They are bad for health and
you will gain what you have lost once you take a break. Crash diets
are not a solution to weight loss. It might seem as if you have lost
few pounds but the moment you give up on the crash diet every thing
will bounce back with a vengeance.
Take a look at it in this way. Do you think that it is possible for
a person to survive on a crash diet for the rest of his or her life?
Certainly not! So at some time or the other, you will have to give up
the crash diet and then you will see for yourself that a crash diet
does more harm than good in the long run.
Crash diets may make a lot of promises, but very rarely do these
promises come true. Crash diets are things people go on in order to
wear an old dress or suit for a particular occasion. That's the only
purpose that they serve as far as I can see.
