If you feel that you have started to become a bit bulky but you are far from having a weight problem, maybe the time has come for you to rethink your dietary plan and to start making some adjustments. After all, nothing is perfect means that there is always place for improving any life and diet plan.
Oups! We said the dreaded “D” word. But this must not scare you because it is not the type of diet that leaves you starving and eating things you would not even touch to throw out. This means a change in lifestyle, more care to what you are eating and why you are eating it.
Temporary diets only give temporary results
If you want to make a change and not just for a couple of months then make some choices you know you can stick with. Do not go for short diet plans only to pile on more weight after the first few results start to show. Make life-changing decisions and stick to them. Eat the right foods at the right time you won’t have to give up on feeling energetic and enjoying good taste.
The hidden allies in your kitchen
People tend to think that in order to lose weight they might have to resort to eating foods they have never heard of or get used to tastes they would not really like.
But they overlook the fact that the best solution is most often the simplest one:
Apples – replace the unhealthy snacks like biscuits, chips, fries, chocolate, with apples. Surely you have some in your kitchen right now!
And instead of reaching out for yet another bag of unhealthy, too salty or too sweet treats you gnaw on while reading this or watching a movie or in any lunch break, eat an apple. It has antioxidants that help the metabolic system and you will feel full longer.
Eggs – your breakfast may consist of a bowl of sweetened cereals or just a cup of coffee. But do you really want to give up on the only chance you have of eating without remorse?
Breakfast is universally accepted as the most important meal of the day and eggs are full of proteins which will fill you with energy.
Yogurt – the simple kind, without fruit, colors and flavors will help your stomach remake the good flora which helps the digestive process. Eat it as a snack, between meals and do so especially when you do not feel peckish.
The wise addition to your grocery list
Olive oil – in case you are not already using it, know that olive oil is a healthy fat that helps induce satiety. This means that you feel fuller sooner and for a longer period of time.
