Lose Weight & Achieve A Healthy Metabolism By Balancing And Adjusting Your Meals
How many meals do you eat in one day?
Close study of weight loss throughout the past decades has proven to us that eating a small number of large meals daily will lower your metabolism. This diet pattern results in extra weight in fat. However, this fat seems to be easily burnable, so there is hope!
Make it your goal to eat at least three medium-sized meals throughout the day.
Do not eat much late at night, though, as sleep slows your metabolism down. If you must have a midnight snack, make it small and balanced between protein and carbohydrate.
One of the most effective and healthy balance systems so far seems to be the Zone Diet's 40-30-30 plan.
Even with only moderate exercise, people are losing weight when following this method of balance. Normal, fattening diets usually include a great deal of carbohydrates, along with heightened amounts of fat (especially saturated fat). Balancing your intake of protein, carbohydrate, and fat increases your body's food-processing efficiency so that far fewer extra calories are stored.
The result of balancing food intake is a heightened energy level, along with a huge drop in cravings for the very foods that fatten you.
Add moderate cardiovascular exercise to this plan and you have a recipe for weight loss success AND long term health.
