Will This Fat Burning Diet Change Your Life?

How many times have you heard “This diet will change your life?” You have heard that one previously, have you not? The hottest trends profess to stumble upon a mystery secret that years of research and millions of real-life experiments failed to uncover. Funnily how those “magical secrets” just do not live up to the initial high expectations.

Even if these fat burning diets accomplish you to shed unwanted pounds, they never help you to transform your life.  For a healthy lifestyle and success on any fat burning diet, you need to transform your life. If you do not transform your lifestyle, you will end up with the same unhealthy eating habits and that will lead you right back to square one. Unhealthy, obese and depressed for life.

Conventional diets are temporary solutions to what representing the whole obese world with a lifetime predicament. Did you know that 95% of dieters gain their weight back within a year? Your best choice to success with your weight loss goals is to forget about fads and gimmicks and rely instead on you own common sense.

Trying to lose weight successfully without changing to a healthy lifestyle is like patching a flat tire. To ride further you put a temporary fix on the damaged area, but it is more than likely that you will have to patch it again later. The same principle is true with weight loss. You can choose either change to a healthy lifestyle or just put a temporary fix on your health.

Remember by putting on a temporary fix you are in the habit of yo-yo dieting and that put extra strain on your heart and depletes your immune system. Yo-yo dieting also have the effect that when you lose weight and gain it back it is becoming that much harder to shed the pounds and much easier to gain more weight.

The key to a healthy lifestyle transformation to fix the weight problem finally lies in motivation, healthy habits, and confidence. You need a healthy weight loss diet with permanent results. One that makes you feel good about yourself, one where you get support from fellow dieters who know the steep path to achieve your weight loss goals.

Where you will experience freedom to make your weight loss journey as you see fit. Freedom to carve out your weight loss goals and to create the healthy lifestyle you always dreamed about. Now is the time to start your journey to reinvent yourself to a beautiful and gorgeous YOU!

Dining Out on Fat Burning Diets

There is nothing as exciting as dining out. However, when one is on a fat burning diet it may present you with some serious choices. Eating out is about pleasure!

One can look at it in two ways, the pleasure of the company or the pleasure of treating your taste buds to a new adventure. I, however treasure the company as well as great healthy food. What is more enriching than the company of loved ones and a treat on tantalizing healthy food?

Back to reality one sit with the dilemma of safe weight loss and on the other hand, one wants to be great company.  So let us get one thing straight “I want to lose weight, but I want to do it in a joyful spirit. I do not want to be a spoil sport!”

What can we do then to make dining out a joyful affair without long faces and feelings of guilt afterwards?

1 Do Some Homework

Most Restaurants are on the Internet. Have a look beforehand at their menu’s and phone and make sure how they prepare their food.  By deciding beforehand what to order one is not tempted by the sight of other choices.

2 Be Drink wary

I’m very wary of drinks when dining out. It is very easy to consume many empty calories without realizing it. Therefore, I choose to drink cold water with lemon or lime wedges. This way I make sure, I do not consume empty calories and after three glasses of water I’m also not that hungry and tend to order smaller portions

3 Don’t Be Fooled By These Buzz Words

The following add-ons are unnecessary and may make your dining out experience unpleasant. Just for the record, they may taste delicious but the taste is going to sit around your waist because they are real fattening. Stay clear of cream sauce, oil, butter, battered, gravy, smothered, au gratin, Alfredo.

4. Make your own menu

Politely request that no sauce, oil or butter be used in your dish. Also, ask the waiter to replace the starch with extra vegetables. This is a great way to save on calories and to ensure that you fill up with more healthy food, without any guilt feelings afterwards.

5 Enjoy the company

Eat slowly and concentrate on the taste of the food. Analyze the taste sensations try to establish new tastes that you aren’t familiar with. Enjoy the conversation and give special attention to your dining partner.

If you can remember that the eating part is NOT why you are dining out you have come a long way. Dining out, for me, is about excellent conversation, enjoyment of my surroundings and relaxation away from home.

Dining out successfully on your fat burning diet is what you are making of it. You can choose what you want, but staying on a healthy weight loss diet and achieving your weight loss goals are far more satisfying than a one night eating out spree. Enjoy your life by living your dream!

You Are What You Eat With Fat Burning Diets

“Instead of thinking about what you’re missing, try thinking about what you have that everyone else is missing.” (unknown)

The thing about healthy dieting is that one must remember, “you are what you eat.” Forget food as a release valve for feeling down. The fact is YOU are in control. You just need to realize that every decision about unhealthy diet choices is in your hands.

For best results with fat burning diets, you need to nurture your body with the exact nutrients it requires. By eating healthy weight loss foods, you will feel, both physically and mentally, on top of the world. The newly found energy will help you to be more productive and to seize every opportunity to accomplish your weight loss goals and your life goals.

If we look at the healthy food pyramid, the following foods are essential for optimal health, energy and zest.

Protein

Protein is the basic building block in your body. Essential for metabolism and fast fat burning. A lack of protein has often the result of being fatigue and sick. Healthy fat burning diets include protein with every meal. Especially if you are exercising, protein are of cardinal importance. Food high in protein includes lean meat, fish, chicken, dry beans, eggs, avocado, dates, figs and nuts.

Fruits and Veggies

You have probably heard about the five a day, which is the daily portion for safe weight loss and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Try to select fruits and veggies of various colors, as each color contains different nutrients. It is vital to include red, green, orange, purple and white in your fat burning diet to get the maximum nutrients for a lifestyle filled with vitality.

Fats

Good news: “Not all fat is bad.” For proper organ and brain function, you need the good fat. So let us separate the good from the bad.

Good Fats:

Mono-unsaturated fats: olive oil, peanut oil, canola oil, avocados, nuts & seeds.

Poly-unsaturated fats: sunflower oil, corn oil, soy oil, nuts and seeds.

Omega 3 fatty acids – fish (salmon, mackerel & herring), flaxseeds, flax oil & walnuts

Bad Fats:

Saturated Fats: animal products (meat with fat), coconut and other tropical oils

Trans fats: partially hydrogenated vegetable oils – commercial baked food, fried food, margarine

Fiber

Fiber come as soluble or insoluble. Insoluble fiber is a type of carbohydrate that the body cannot digest. Great sources are fruits, veggies, whole grain breads, whole grain cereals and beans.

To help us in our quest to conquer the bulges it is best to avoid the following unhealthy fattening foods:

Saturated Fat

Dietary cholesterol

Sugar, high fructose corn syrup

White flour and processed flours

Excessive Alcohol use

Caffeine in abundance

A healthy weight loss diet is relative to YOU and your personality. It is important to figure for yourself out what is important for you and the necessary changes to achieve your weight loss goals.

    Fat Burning Diets – The EatingWell Diet

    Food magazines of all sorts are everywhere you look. Some are about delicious recipes, but they are not always healthy or practical in nutritional value. Other magazines focus on weight loss but they do not offer healthy fat burning diet meal plans.

    One magazine I find very interesting is EatingWell. Not only do they report on the latest nutrition and health news but and this is the important part, they provide delicious, healthy fat burning recipes with a fat burning diet plan to change to suit your needs.

    EatingWell Media Group publishes EatingWell Magazine. The company also runs a website and publishes books about food and nutrition.

    It is much more than just a cookbook. In the first 100 pages or so, you will find a no-gimmicks weight loss plan perfect as a fat burning diet. It consists of seven steps that, if followed, will result in healthier eating habits and dropped pounds.

    The program outlined in the book includes a 28-day fast-track program to help jumpstart your weight loss on this fat burning diet. This is not just another fad diet.

    Filled with strategies to help dieters change their bad shopping and eating habits, work fat burning exercises into their schedules and recover from mistakes this is a very valuable addition to your bookshelf. These weight loss strategies make losing weight less challenging.

    The author of The EatingWell Diet, Jean Harvey-Berino, PhD, R.D., is Chair of the Department of Nutrition and Food Sciences at the University of Vermont. She has done extensive research in obesity treatment and been featured in numerous newspapers, magazines and television shows. She has won several awards for her work, and The EatingWell Diet has received praise from consumers and nutritionists alike.

    The EatingWell Diet Challenge

    Those who own the book, as well as those who do not, can also take advantage of a motivating program at the EatingWell.com website. The EatingWell Diet Challenge is a 12-week program designed to promote weight loss with simple changes to daily habits. The challenge started out with nine participants selected by magazine staff. Those nine people lost a total of 112 pounds. The challenge is now available to all website visitors and therefore an ideal place to get support and reach your fat burning goals.

    Each week of this program presents a new challenge. Participants learn how to set goals, thwart eating triggers and obstacles to weight loss, get the support they need and more. They have access to a community forum, where they can ask questions and learn from the experiences of others. In addition, it is all free.

    The EatingWell Diet is much easier to follow especially with the abundance of recipes provided. Both the book and the website provide many weight loss tools that dieters can use.

    This program does require motivation and commitment, but its common sense approach makes it easy to implement in your fat burning diet. For those who need guidance but cannot afford expensive a fat burning diet program, the EatingWell Diet is a viable alternative.
