Tips for Balancing Calories and Physical Activities
Many people work out on a regular basis and they don’t lose weight.
It’s usually they eat the wrong food.
If you want to lose weight cut out – or at least cut back – on flour and sugar. These are the garbohydrates (yep that’s a ‘g’ not a ’c’) that don’t provide great sources of nutrition, just large amounts of calories. Laying off the grog will help as well and simply learn more about how to start eating healthy.
If you’re trying to lose weight you need to cut back on calories. It’s as simple as that. If you lay off flour and sugar you’re more likely to eat more fresh food – particularly fruit and vegetables. You’ll be attracted to the foods rich in protein – meat, fish and chicken, instead of bread and butter, cakes, biscuits and chocolate.
Not losing weight when you’ve increased your exercise can be frustrating, but it just means you have to adopt a stricter diet – and keep exercising. Stopping exercise is not the solution to good heath.
A light snack before you exercise maybe a worthwhile thing to do so that you have the energy to maintain the exercise and you don’t end up absolutely famishing at the end of a workout.
Keep yourself hydrated. Make sure that you drink enough water. Often feeling hungry is a sign that you may be needing more fluid than food.
Track how much food you’re eating, every scrap of it. Chances you just are not aware of how many calories you are consuming each day. You probably don’t need to count actual calories, just write down the foods you are eating. Remember the garbohydrates (flour and sugar mixed with fat) contain huge amounts of energy. A pound of carrots contains less energy than 100gms of chocolate. Eat more fruit and vegetables.
Eat in moderation sounds like good, advice. Eat less, not more.
The best way to lose weight is with a combined approach of eating more healthy and whole foods and exercising regularly. When exercising, 20 minutes is good, 30 is better and 40 is best.
As a general rule you can lose 1% of your weight a week, if you’re diligent.
Want to know m ore about the garhohydrates and how they’re affecting your weight – and sabotaging your exercise program – grab yourself a copy of Frank McFatter’s book, Eat and grow fat.
Eat and Grow Fat will provide you with an insight into what the manufacturers, promoters and apologists of manufactured food are doing to pervert the course of good nutrition.
The manufactured food industry stands as one of the pinnacles of man’s achievements; the ability to instantly satisfy people’s hunger. It is a powerful, irresistible force imbedded from bottom to top in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs.
