Weight Losing Tips: Sixth Step

Posted by Saito on January 12, 2009

Check out the next update called Step Seven

Don’t stop eating.

Now there are some who go on a diet that requires them to eat MUCH less then what they normally do…big mistake :(. You see if your body is used to a certain amount of food constantly coming into your system and you start on a rough diet like that your body would react to the shortage; you would begin to see more flab packing around your body. Why though? Your body is storing energy, it’s trying to help but lol it’s just making your situation worse…so, if you want to cut back a little on how much you eat don’t go and take a huge leap when you are not even ready to take one so big, again my mom says “everything in moderation” so take it slowly.

Now I would have this exact problem, I decided to stop eating the amount of food I was consuming and it only made matters worse. So I decided to work around the problem. I had a very large appetite and needed food constantly (you know I’m a teen and am often hungry lol :D) so I replaced most of what I ate with healthy and nutritious food. Instead of eating chips I ate an apple, and when I had a sandwich I used more veggies like tomatoes or lettuce on a turkey breast sandwich. Then I would have this craving for salad, that helped me quite a bit fortunately :D. I had many choices of what I wanted on my salad, I loved having honey mustard or ranch mostly as a dressing, then I would have a tall glass of water instead of soda to wash it all down. With my salad I would either have an orange or an apple, yum :).

See what I did to improvise, and I could eat till I was satisfied. Your only supposed to eat till your comfortable not full :D. If you have a problem like I had try using different ways to make a great lunch or dinner that can fill you up and not pack on any extra pounds :D. If you were going to have a Mexican style dinner or lunch, let’s say burritos, add more salad to your burrito, not a lot of meats or beans (you can also add salsa to give it that zesty flavor and it’s awesome).Now, let’s say it was summer, you were having a BBQ and the main course was chicken, why not make something healthy to go with it :D. I would personally make a lettuce, potato or fruit salad and it would make a perfect filler. As for the beverages I would suggest fruit smoothies, or a nice cool glass of water to wash it all down. NOW, let’s say I was about to have breakfast, what I would do in the morning to give me a great start would be cream of wheat, a glass of milk and an orange.

There are so many ways of making a healthy breakfast lunch and dinner you HAVE to try it :D. Post a comment if you have any idea’s for a healthy meal =D
