Understanding your diet and nutrition is 75% of your battle if you want to lose weight, I guarantee that if you conquer this you will lose weight, and this also means you don’t need to be going to the gym every night, which is a big plus for most people trying to lose weight.
Your body works in cycles, so every three to four hours your body needs food, so instead of munching at a chocolate bar, or a pack of crisps try taking some nuts, fruit, or just even a healthy snack bar, these things don’t need any special preparation. If you have time to make something just try making a quick sandwich but make sure its multigrain bread and try peanut butter on it. Did you know that eating an apple everyday will stop you from craving anything which is bad for you?
You also need to understand what Protein and Carbohydrates do for you and when to eat them. Protein foods are Tuna, Chicken, Roast Beef, Egg Whites, Cashew Nuts, Skimmed Milk…etc. Carbohydrates foods are Low Carb Pasta, Fruits, Porridge, Multigrain Bread…etc.
One of the biggest myths of all time is in trying to lose weight is to cut out your meals through out the day, this is just rubbish. You need to start to eat more often, but I must stress not big meals everytime. Your body needs to refuel and running on an empty tank is no good.
The first meal of the day and the most important is your breakfast, you need to eat as soon as you wake up, next you need to try and eat around 10ish, just an fruit will do here, next is your dinner, here you can have a mixture of carbs and protein, but don’t over fill your plate, next try another quick snack just before your tea, Then it’s your teat, again mix your carbs with protein, then just before your going to bed try eating something which has protein in it, this way while your body is asleep it’s still burning off fat. You should start to eat around five to six small meals a day if you want to lose weight.
