Why Are People Getting Bigger?

It is a fact! People are getting bigger. Not taller but bigger (sidewise). Recently I went to a mall (after I don’t know how many months). At every turn, you are bombarded with food; fattening food, delicious smelling food and promises of exotic tasting experiences to die for.

I also came to the realization that portion sizes, especially in steakhouses has become bigger.  We are fighting the bulges and portion sizes increase to make our job that more difficult. This is getting ridiculous!

The solution? You have to gain control over what goes on your plate. In the beginning, it may be difficult, but with experience, you can learn exactly how many servings you are eating. After a while, you will know exactly how big the portions should be to be in line with recommended portions.

If you can master this skill (and make it a habit) you will have a sure fire method to cut the most calories the quickest. Just by changing to a healthy fat burning diet with portion control, you can literally lose weight without doing anything else.

If you are like me, the following statement will fit you like a glove. Do you ever feel obligated to finish everything on your plate?  Were you raised with the same principle than me? Clean you plate otherwise you are wasting food and there are hundreds of thousands people dying for a morsel

The solution to lasting weight loss with fat burning diets is to exercise portion control.

•    Always use smaller plates and bowls. I use a side plate for my main meal.
•    Order an appetizer as an entree. Look for fresh salads or fruit and try to stay clear from fried foods.
•    If possible, use the lunch menu (to order) at dinnertime.
•    You do not have to eat everything! Leftovers are okay. Let them wrap half your meal before bringing it out.
•    Go for smaller sizes for instance a half-order of pasta.
•    Always be aware what you are eating. Chances are good that you will eat excessively if you are mindlessly picking at your food.
•    Another vital habit is to learn to read and understand food labels. Watch out! Serving sizes can be misleading! Did you know a can of cola is actually two servings?

As you cut down on your portions, you may feel a little hungry at first. To beat this temporary hunger without eating more try to:
•    Drink more water
•    Eat fiber-loaded foods
•    Eat low-calorie foods first
•    Eat slowly, put the fork down between bites
The main thing to success on any fat burning diet is to take your life back from obesity. We want to be healthy and full of vitality. The price therefore is to stay focus on one’s weight loss goals and incorporate small changes to ensure success.

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.

Overcome Emotional Eating with Fat Burning Diets

As we get our nutrients from food, we cannot be without the eating part in our lives. However, some of us forget about healthy living and may go overboard with our eating habits. This article is looking how fat burning diets can help take control over emotional eating.

In practice, emotional eating end with the scale, but it begins with your mindset. Stress is a major culprit in emotional eating. Always remember when you are on a low, food cannot solve your problems. It will more likely add to your problems due to gaining unwanted weight by straying from your healthy fat burning diet.

Good days and bad days come to everybody.  Emotional eating comes into play with our ability to deal with bad days. We all want to be comforted, without judgment, when hurt. That is what food does for the emotional eater. It does not judge you, or hurt you, or tells you “no”. Enjoyable foods may stimulate the release of endorphins to make you feel better.
Food is the emotional eater’s stress relieve valve. It is far better, for them, to hide behind food than to find solutions for problems. Alas, hiding will not solve the problems and the viscous cycle start from anew. More food to feel better with weight gain as the result.

How do you know if you use food as a crutch? Obviously, you will start to gain weight. If you recently started to put on some weight, now is the time to take stock of your life. Examine the following areas of your life:

* Have you been under stress lately at work or at home?
* Has anything traumatic happened in the last year?
* Are you dealing with a problem but haven’t found a solution?

Answering “yes” to any of these questions could mean that you are an emotional eater.  You eat but you are not necessarily hungry at the time. The foods that you choose are what we term “comfort foods”:

* High fat foods like French fries, fried foods
* High carb foods like macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes
* Sugary foods like ice cream, donuts, cookies, cake

There is help for emotional eaters. The first step is recognizing that you have a problem.  You’ll experience feelings of helplessness and guilt.  The guilt is over potentially ruining your health and the helplessness lies in the fact that you don’t see a way out.

A counselor might suggest things like visualization, practicing problem solving skills, relaxation techniques and family support. Visualization helps you to see your problems in a realistic way and not blown out of proportion.  You will also learn to see food as nutrition for the body and not an emotional crutch.
