What are you fitness goals for the coming years? I’ve been working on a dieting plan, rather a lifestyle change. I hate the terminology diet. Many people do and I don’t blame them. After all, it has the word “die” in it. Whereas, lifestyle has the word “life” in it.
I think the biggest problem with Lifestyle Changes, is that people cut out too much. At least at the start. By cutting out high fat foods, that doesn’t mean you can’t have fat, or can only have low fat foods. In fact, you’ll want the majority of your foods to be moderate fat intake, not low fat. Low fat is just as bad as high fat.
I’ve been working on a list of things that I want to cut out and limit this morning. So far so good, here’s what I have for the time being…
Limit – one slice of bread per day.
Limit – small dessert sizes.
Limit – meat intake, small portions, 2-3 times a week.
Limit – refined carbohydrates.
Zero – high fat foods, such as bacon.
Zero – high carbohydrate snacks, such as cake.
Doing these things will go a long way to help aid the weight loss. Also, building muscle will burn more calories. Another thing you’ll want to cut back on is the amount of Sugar. If you drink a lot of Soda, you’re bringing in a ton of Sugar. That alone could be making you fat. I would say no more than about one Soda a day. That’s a 12 ounce can size. Not a 1 liter bottle.
Many people assume that they need a lot of carbohydrates to stay healthy. The problem with that is, far too many people trust the government to make smart choices for them. That’s not always the case. In fact, if you’ve watched the Documentary – Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, you’ll find out that we need fewer carbohydrates than we’re told.
Why so many carbs? Simple, money. If you traced back the money trail, you’ll more than likely find a trail leading to big bread and grain manufactures. If they didn’t have these high daily recommendations, people wouldn’t buy as much bread and grain. In the Documentary above, he recommends limiting your carbs to 100g or less per day. You especially don’t want to have a lot of refined carbs, such as white bread.
There are also a few things you can do to help lose weight. These include taking Sunflower Seeds and Safflower Oil. Those two substances cause the body to release stored fat. Take 3 Tablespoons daily of Sunflower Seeds to lose the fat, even without exercising. Just be sure to watch your calorie intake and eat healthy.
