Tips to be successful during your dieting
Eat Everything in Moderation
This might seem simple and easy but is extremely important for your diet. Our dietitians recommend eating a variety of foods daily like all kinds of fruit, whole grains, fish, seeds, eggs, and veggies.
Eating a variety of foods keeps your diet healthy, enjoyable, interesting and nutritious!
Eat frequently to keep blood sugar balanced
Eating a balanced diet means a balanced meal containing sufficient carbs, fats, and protein.
It also means that you should not go for more than four hours without eating a meal or snack.
Keeping blood sugars balanced also helps us make good food choices and keeps your taste buds satisfied.
Balance the food you eat with physical activity
Like literally, everything should be balanced. Physical activity is very important in our daily lives as it helps to increase metabolism.
For adults, it is necessary to workout 2.5 hours per day
Eat breakfast every day
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It gives you a quick start and energy to start your day.
Eat breakfast daily even if you don’t feel like eating. It also jump-starts your metabolism for the day.
Make food choices that are moderate in sugar content.
Sugar products are binge food choices for many people in the United States. Sugar is also important for our body as our brain needs glucose to work. Eat sugar in moderation.
Slow down to eat.
You should slowly chew your meal instead of rushing, slamming down food as an afterthought in your already busy schedule.
Remember it takes fifteen to twenty minutes to satisfy your hunger.
The more you chew your meal, the longer it will take to go into your stomach and you can eat less and lose your weight by following this simple process. Slow down and allow your mind and body to know it’s satisfied.
Keep an eye on portions.
Don’t overeat and don’t think that “this food won’t be enough and I would be hungry after one hour, so I should eat my heart out”.
It’s a BIG NO. you should check the serving size on food labels, sometimes small packs contain more calories.
Don’t rely on willpower.
Don’t just rely on willpower, instead you should control your food intake or food environment so that you couldn’t unnecessarily eat and overfill your plate when you’re hungry.
Moreover, you don’t have to control everything in your food environment, you just have to keep aware of hidden food urges and traps that make you overeat. It’s very necessary to keep your diet and food intake balanced if you want to quickly reduce your weight in 1 week or 2 weeks’ time.
