We are very proud to present you healthy eating strategy, something that you may already know but you have just put it away somewhere in your mind. This is actually some kind of reminder which puts you in the right direction when we are talking about healthy eating and healthy weight losing. Here, it is not anything about making you starve, taking pills or something like that. Here we are going to give you the best possible advices and tips how to loose your weight in healthy way. Our philosophy is based on your body's physiology.
First of all, you should know how your body works. For each move, even the simplest ones like finger snapping, your body uses some energy. Foods rich in carbohydrates are the primary source of energy for all the functions performed by your body. You can find them in bread, beans, milk, popcorn, potatoes, pasta, corn, fruits, vegetables, sweets etc. But there are "good" and "bad" carbohydrates. "Bad" ones, also known as simple carbohydrates, are like a "sugar injection" - they immediately increase the level of sugar in blood. At the other side the good ones or complex carbohydrates release sugar slowly. The fibers, that are good carbohydrates, help creating a feeling of satiety, so you can not overeat these foods. This explains why, after a bowl of oatmeal you feel full, rather than after sweets that have the same amount of calories. The point is that your stomach takes more time to digest fibers, so you will not be hungry for quite a long time.
Eating a lot of carbohydrates gives you a lot of energy and if you don't use it all, it is going to transform in fat, which represents a reserve of energy for emergency situations when carbohydrates are unavailable. Also, it is very important to know that you do not need more than 1500–2300 calories per day. So, this unique and healthy diet is based on:
- reducing bad carbohydrates and fats to the minimum,
- increasing intake of good carbs (fibers) and proteins.
This actually makes your body to use fat for producing energy, which is first alternative to sugars. Here are six tips for you how to achieve that:
1. Have just 3 regular meals per day!
Any snacks between are not accepted. This is very important. You must be thinking that one candy bar doesn't mean anything. Well, it means. For example, caloric value for snickers candy bar is almost 300 calories which is like two cups of muesli for breakfast and you probably can not eat them both. So, if you eat 1 candy bar a day, you should pass at least breakfast (if we just look at the numbers of calories you take in). Also, the potato crisps; in 28 grams (the smallest pack) are 155 calories. So, be careful what you eat if you want to stay in shape.
2. Chew each bite very well!
This will keep you satiated quite longer. If bites are not creamy before swallowing, the liquid part of them will be gone in a few moments from your stomach and the crumbled parts will stay, so your stomach is actually empty just half an hour after you had a meal. If you make all of them creamy, your gizzard will be bussier, so you will not feel hunger for the next 4 to 6 hours. If the stomach is working, you are not hungry.
3. Don't eat candies and don't drink any juices!
The idea is to make your body burns its fat, and for that we will not give him pure sugar. So, do not eat candies and do not drink any fizzy drinks, or flavoured milks, or shakes or anything which is not natural. These things are full of sugar in the best case, but mostly there are many chemicals and substances in, which substitute sugar. When you drink this stuff, you give your body easy energy. Dissolved sugar is the best source of energy. Unless you eat sugar, you body must burn its reserves to produce energy.
4. Reduce carbohydrate food and increase protein food!
So avoid highly processed carbohydrates such as potato crisps, corn crisps, sugary drinks, pastries and white rice and white bread, and increase fish, good meat, vegetables like beans, chickpeas, lentil, peas, whole grains, milk, fiber, fruits. As you can see, there are some ingredients which contain carbs, but the good ones. It is important that you choose healthy sources of carbohydrates and not avoid them completely for the sake of wanting to lose weight.
5. Do some exercises!
Be a sportsman. You do not need more than 30 minutes of working out every day. Just be persistent. Jogging is just enough. If you work out you need more energy then usual during that, so obviously the fat is melting.
6. Skip the dinner (this is optional)!
If you want faster results, just do that. But by our opinion, this is cruel. So you can make it easier by not eating anything after 6 pm. After a month you will see a huge progress.
