Wholesome Diets

Start your morning by skipping high-sugar, processed cereals, and replace the eggs and some of the cheese in your omelet with vegetables. Swap out some of the meat and cheese in your sandwich with healthier veggie choices such as lettuce, tomatoes, sprouts, cucumbers, and avocado. Instead of a high-calorie snack, such as chips and dip, try baby carrots with hummus, or crunching on a fresh apple. Soft drinks including soda and energy drinks are a huge source of calories in many poor diets. One can of soda contains between 10-12 teaspoons of sugar and 150 calories, so a few soft drinks can quickly bloat your daily calorie intake. Switching to diet soda isn't the answer either. Instead, try switching to water with lemon, unsweetened iced tea, or carbonated water with a splash of juice.

Whole foods provide the energy and nutrients you need to maintain health. Required nutrients include proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins, minerals, and water in abundance. Healthy eating isn't hard in fact, but it's a skill that must be learned. The key to nutritional science is to eat a variety of foods, including vegetables, fruits, and whole-grain products. Further, rehydrate with lots of alkaline, ionized mineral water, and limit your intake of salt, sugar, alcohol, saturated fat, and trans fat in your diet. The high water and fiber content in most fruits and vegetables makes them hard to overeat.

Stay away from all fried foods, including potato chips and other processed snacks. No more sodas, no more diet sodas, no more sodas. Forget loading up on white bread or potatoes, and let's include some exercise as part of your daily diet. If you walk in the sun for 20 minutes every morning or afternoon, you not only fight depression and laziness, but the walk itself will do you good. To lose weight, you have to eat fewer calories, but that doesn't necessarily mean you have to eat less food. The key is to add the types of food that keep you feeling satisfied and full, without packing on the pounds.

Lentils: A Miracle Food

Lentils are legumes from drier regions, extremely high in protein, and packed with minerals as well as trace elements.


Are superfoods worth the money? While there are substantial benefits to eating chia seeds, goji berries and quinoa, add in some spirulina algea and ginseng, and your smoothie is going to cost a fortune.

Weight Loss Tips

Your weight loss efforts will succeed or fail based largely on your food environment. Start the day with breakfast. Serve yourself smaller portions. One easy way to control portion size is by using small plates, bowls, and cups. Cook your own meals, and you control what goes in to the recipe. Restaurant and packaged foods generally contain a lot more sodium, fat, and calories than home-cooked meals. Don't shop for groceries when you're hungry. Create a shopping list and stick to it, and be especially careful to avoid foods at the ends of the aisles and along the checkout stands, where grocers tend to sell high-calorie snack and convenience foods.

In addition to your food and eating-related choices, you can also support your weight loss and dieting efforts by making healthy lifestyle choices. Get plenty of sleep. Lack of sleep has been shown to have a direct link to hunger, overeating, and weight gain. Exhaustion also impairs your judgment, which can lead to poor food choices. Aim for around 8 hours of quality sleep a night. Get plenty of exercise. Exercise is a dieter's best friend. It not only burns calories, but can actually improve your resting metabolism. No time for a long workout? Research shows that three 10-minute spurts of exercise per day are just as good as one 30-minute workout. Drink more water. You can easily reduce your daily calorie intake by replacing soda, alcohol, or coffee with water. Thirst can also be confused with hunger, so by drinking water, you may avoid consuming extra calories, plus it will help you break down food more easily.

If you want to lose weight without feeling hungry all the time, start eating 'rabbit foods' that are high in fiber. You've seen them in the supermarket, just sitting there in the fruits and vegetables section, calling out to you to eat them. Lettuce, carrot, cucumber, celery, the names themselves sound like a diet waiting to happen. High-fiber foods take a long time to digest, which means you'll feel full longer. There's nothing magic about it, but the weight-loss results are amazing. Enjoy whole fruits like strawberries, apples, oranges, berries, nectarines, plums, leafy salads, and green veggies of all kinds. Select beans like black beans, lentils, split peas, pinto beans, and chickpeas. Add them to soups, salads, and entrees, or enjoy them as a hearty dish of their own. Try high-fiber cereal, oatmeal, brown rice, whole-wheat pasta, whole-wheat or multigrain bread, bran muffins, or air-popped popcorn.
