Are you looking to lose weight rapidly? You may not or perhaps should not lose weight too quickly as this can
be dangerous. If you lose weight too fast, it may be that you are not getting your recommended daily
servings of the required food groups, meaning you may not be meeting all of your daily nutritional needs. This
can lead to damage to your organs if this strict diet is for a prolonged period of time.
Your best way to lose weight is with a gradual schedule of eating less calories, eating properly and getting
regular exercise. Not to sound too cliche but, for real long term weight loss, it really does have to be a
lifestyle change...period. It may not be what you want to hear but, it is the simple truth.
If you go on a strict diet and lose weight, you will probably feel great for a short period of time. However,
most dieters rebound and go back to their pre-diet weight and many dieters gain even more weight. This may be due to
the fact that the dieter felt like they were either starving, lacking something or had nothing to satify any
of their cravings.
This is why it is very important to not feel depraved of food you love. It doesn't mean that you can eat everything
for every craving you experience. Everyone knows that eating a full carton of ice cream is not good. Perhaps
as a person looking to lose weight, you can try to make your portions smaller - as a start. The problem with eating
sweet and fatty foods is that they are high in calories but, don't tend to fill up our stomachs as much as lower
calorie foods. This means that even though you eat some junk food, you may still feel hungry and therefore,
eat more. If you fill your stomach with high filler foods such as proteins and fibre (found in protein bars,
meats, legumes, vegetables, etc.) you will probably be consuming less calories but, feel fuller so less likely
to eat more - hence, consuming less calories overall.
