Fat Burning Diets Are About Healthy Choices!

Fat burning diets are a wonderful way to lose weight and feel great. As in all things in life, you need to stick to the rules otherwise all your efforts will be in vain.Healthy Strawberry Smoothie

With so many obese people in the world, our only option is to start eating healthy. Healthy fat burning diets usually include various fat burning foods, such as greens, fresh fruits and veggies, nuts, olive oil, berries etc.

Although many people try to stay healthy, the sad truth is that many more fail in their quest to conquer the food addiction. Additionally there are so many contradicting stories on what is healthy and what is not. No wonder it is so easy to fall prey to every new gimmick on the market. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to educate oneself on what is good for you and what not.

Armed with this information you can be sure your fat burning diet is helping you to lose weight and stay healthy. We all have common sense. By using it, you will quickly realize you would not starve yourself to death. Therefore, diets that propagate a too low intake of calories are not healthy and you probably will not stick with it to the end.

Equally important is that your body needs food from all categories of the food pyramid. All meals should include proteins, fats, sugars, fibers, vitamins and minerals. Only by giving your body all, the essential nutrients it requires to sustain itself you will be able to succeed with your fat burning diet.

This takes some planning and for some of us planning can be hard because we are so much into the “mindlessly munching on pretzels” habit. You have to admit it, it’s a lot easier to reach out for a bag of whatever junk food is available than to plan a balanced meal with healthy fat burning food.

This also means that if you plan to replace crisps with a fruit, you won’t feel good. In fact, the cravings will most probably drive you to such an extent that you will be unable to resist the crisps after all. An apple plus plain low fat yogurt, for example, is more fulfilling than two apples. It is far better to mix and match the different fat burning food to create a metabolism furnace.

Also, keep in mind that raw food is better (healthier) than cooked food. Try to eat as much raw food as possible. However, sometimes it is better to cook specific food as they may harbor toxic compounds that can wreak havoc on your digestive tract.

Carrots on the other hand contain fragile nutrients that will be destroyed in a frying pan. Cooked carrots still contain very important nutrients and vitamins.  Cooked or raw, carrots are always enjoyable.

Is sushi any better than grilled salmon? Apparently not! What to do then? The best way is to eat a mixture of raw and cooked veggies and fruit. No need to torture yourself to eat raw stuff if you usually eat it cooked. Be experimental and use your culinary skills to create interesting dishes.

Make your choices of fat burning food according to your own liking. If you see your food burning diet as an adventure, you may be in for a new taste bud experience and uncover food that you never thought of before.

Fat burning diets are more than something you try for a couple of weeks every now and then. No, no, no. It is a changed lifestyle, a changed perspective on your views of food.

Try to stay clear of sugary things, fats and eating huge portions or second helpings. If your love food is chocolate then demonizes it will frustrate you and most likely sabotage your best intentions. So be kind to yourself and your cravings.

Fat burning diets and healthy lifestyles are not about giving up on foods we love, but on making choices that are sustainable for long term – for a lifetime actually! These choices will enhance your life and create a new healthy you.

I am 34 and trying to get back in shape. I look good all around but I just cant get rid of these love handles.
Currently, I am running, playing tennis, jump rope, dieting, drinking 2-3 glasses of water a day.
Are there certain foods that destroy fat?

I appreciate your tips.

First, I’m glad to read that you’re taking positive steps to improve your health. Secondly, please note that spot reducing doesn’t work. Your body loses fat ‘all over’ rather than in sections. Finally, losing weight requires both exercise and caloric restriction. Since you’re going to be doing both, keep the following in mind (it’s what I’ve told people for over 2 decades in my practice):

1) Check with your physician to be certain that you are physically able to reduce your calories and increase your exercise habits safely.

2) Make certain that the calories you are eating are as balanced as possible. Finding out how much protein, carbs, and fats your body needs on a daily basis can really help keep your energy levels high all day long. The #1 reason my clients tell me that they’ve stopped dieting or exercising in the past is because of low energy ebbs. Also remember that you may need supplements to help things along.

3) While exercising (before, during, and after) be sure to consume enough water. The key is not to be ‘thirsty’ (overtly) during this time of exercise.

4) Adding weight bearing exercise (i.e., lifting weights) will help to tone your body and the thermogenic (fat burning) effect will last long after you’ve stopped working out — even if your workout is simply walking).

5) Remember that you’ll probably hit plateaus (times when you’ll stop losing weight) several times during your weight loss progress. This is completely normal and is only temporary but it can last for a couple of weeks at a time. It is very important to remember that even if your scale isn’t showing progress, your entire body is being positively effected by your efforts.

6) Measure different parts of your body (neck, upper arms, lower arms, chest, abs, waist, belly, butt, thighs, etc.) and do it accurately. Write these measurements down and check them once every 2 weeks. This will help you remember that your body is ‘reducing’ all over — not just in one particular area. If you’re weight training you may actually notice a slight increase in some areas of your body (don’t worry — if you’re a woman you won’t start looking like a bodybuilder).

7) Keep focused on your end goal and concentrate on losing maybe 1 pound a week — sometimes you’ll lose more, sometimes less. As long as it’s an average, it’s okay.

8) Lastly, remember that you’re doing a WONDERFUL thing for your body.

Keep up the good work. I’ve worked with hundreds of people in the past 20 years (mostly women) who have lost (individually) HUNDREDS of pounds safely. Better still, they’ve kept it off — Kay lost over 350 pounds and has been at her goal weight for 7 years now.

As for what to take, that depends entirely on what your body needs. Anyone who suggests that you take something that ‘works for everyone’ is either confused or deluded. For example, if you had a twin brother or sister your bodies could react completely different to certain supplements or foods on a metabolic level.

There are supplements and foods that help to counter the production and absorption of fat (chitosan, certain Omega’s) but you may or may not need them to be successful.

If you want to learn more about what you might want to take you can visit my site (below).

Any questions, don’t hesitate to write and ask.

Fat Gaining Diets versus Fat Burning Diets

What does the word “diet” means?

Healthy Fat Burning Diets

Healthy Fat Burning Diets

Your daily intake of food is basically your diet. You may therefore be on an unhealthy and fat gaining diet or you can choose to change your lifestyle to a healthy fat burning diet.

Fat burning diets help you to shed unwanted pounds but also reprogram your body to burn calories more effectively.

Healthy diets contain all the necessary food groups in the food pyramid. To make intelligent decisions about diets and your health you need to know the different categories in the food pyramid.

Carbohydrates (Carbs)

Carbs forms the basis of the food pyramid. The food in this section fills you up and is your main energy source. Food in this category includes cereals, bread, pasta, rice etc. Healthy diets include this section but with emphasis on whole grain food.

For quick weight loss, you can exclude them. The question you have to answer is do you want to lose weight quickly or do you want a diet that will change your view on fat burning food.

Fruit and Vegetables

There is nothing as refreshing as a salad consisting of fresh, raw veggies and fruit. Loaded with fiber, vitamins, minerals and minimal calories they are your ideal food in any diet.

Protein

Protein is a fantastic ingredient in fat burning diets. In your body, it comes in many forms and does various functions within your body. Food that contains protein includes meat, poultry, fish, plant foods like dried beans, chickpeas, soybeans, lentils, eggs and dairy products.

Protein does the following without you even knowing it.

Building muscles, repairing tissues, organs and bones

As a hormone, it tells your body when to use food as energy or to store it as fat

It carries oxygen through your blood to your muscles and organs

As an anti body, it protects you against viruses and bacteria.

Fat

Fat calories are more readily stored in your body as fat. One gram of fat equals nine calories. Fat plays an important roll by delivering vitamins A, D, E en K. Fat can be divided in 3 main groups.

Saturated Fats (bad): It increases your cholesterol levels and may increase your risk for heart diseases.  These fats are usually in animal products. By choosing the leaner cuts, you are ensuring that you get your protein and cut out the bad fat.

Poli-unsaturated Fats (good): There are two types namely omega-3 and omega-6. Fish contains these fats and fat burning diets high in omega-3 may help protect you against heart diseases. New studies show that these fats can help you maintain a healthy weight.

Mono-unsaturated Fats (good): Nuts, olives, peanuts, avocado’s, olive- and canola oil are sources of mono-unsaturated fats. Mono-unsaturated fats helps to lower cholesterol levels and protect you against heart diseases, but they also helps you to burn fat and to eat less.

You have now all the ingredients to change to fat burning diets with success.  Not only will you lose weight you will ensure that you have a healthy lifestyle.  The choice is yours.

Do you want to be slim, sexy and healthy or do you want to slob through life feeling totally discontent with your life?
