Common Sense Diet Plan
We all know it down deep, none of these stupid diet fads are sustainable and long-lasting. At some point everyone breaks or has some backlash swing where they then begin to gain all that excess weight back again. So what if instead we just followed our common sense? What if that was the solution all along?
Before we get into the full blown diet or what I like to call meal plan, let’s look at 5 principles that are based on the perspective that YOUR BODY IS A MACHINE. Get in this mindset, and follow this advice and watch that fat melt and stay away for good.
5 Common Sense Diet Principles
1. Stop Eating So Much – This may sound a little too basic, but in order to maintain a healthy body weight, it’s absolutely critical that you don’t overeat. One way to use some common sense here is to eat a little more slowly, and pay attention to your stomach. Once you start feeling full, put the fork and knife down. It takes a good 20 minutes for your stomach to tell your brain that it’s full.
2. If You Don’t Want to Be Fat, then Stop Eating Fat! – You can’t get any more real about it. If you want to drop the weight, then you need to cut out fat from your diet. Eating bad fats, like those found in fried and processed foods, will only make you fat!
But there is a bit of a catch to this one. Some fats are actually good for you, especially omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to boost your metabolism and help you shed the extra pounds. So use some common sense, and avoid trans and saturated fats. Fats like those found in salmon, nuts, and avocados, however, are great options in moderation. Or if you’d like, try taking NOW Ultra Omega-3.
3. Let Go of Your Sugar Fantasies – There are no two ways about it. When it’s not used up in energy production, calories from sugar are stored as fat in your body. So when you eat a bunch of sugar, you may as well be eating a bunch of fat. Watch your labels, and cut down your sugar intake as much as possible.
