Eating healthy is not just to keep us alive and floating but also to keep us fit and healthy. Hence nutritious diet should and must be a part of our regular dietary program. Many of us do however; have a diet regime that we maintain. But is there someone out there who does not get the intended result of their dietary program?
I am sure many, and you all must be wondering where and how did you go wrong. Well the answer is simple; you must have got it wrong like many of us because making a dieting mistake is not a random occurrence. It is very natural and happens all the time. So do not worry, because here are some tips to help you avoid such confusion and rectify your mistakes.
Protein is the single most essential element that your body needs to build up lean mass. If your protein intake is not enough then not only your muscle growth in hindered but it becomes difficult for your body to retain whatever muscle you have. Remember each body is different and thus your regular activities and as well as your biological needs will vary from others. It is the most satiating micronutrient that helps you lose quite a few calories while it is metabolized thus helping you lose weight without even trying.
Do not Jump your Plan
When you commit yourself to a dietary regime, be honest to it. Try your best not to jump it just because some else’ dietary regime has better and quicker results. If you frequently skip from one regime to the other it will just hinder your results because these regimes take time to show its effects which differs from person to person. Remember these regimes depend upon your body, genetics and your activities, thus making it possible to see a comprehensible change in others sooner than you. Changing your dietary regime must be contained within the limits of health issues, that is if you are sick or if you gain or lose weight rapidly, only then should you consider changing your regime.
Considering all that you Read
It is the most common trap that all of us fall for. Trendy diet and health magazines promising quick fixes are not the way out and you should know it. Remember your nutrition plan is to heal you from inside out and not the other way round. Try and stick to a simple plan without any convoluted methods to make it easier and convenient for you. Chose a diet that doesn’t leave you salivating for more food after every meal, something that you are sure you can sustain on.
Read your Labels Carefully
Do not fall for the misleading labels on all the food products that are out there. Labels like “whole grains”, “low-fat”, and “Omega -3” can be disastrous if you fall for them. Remember that the amount of such healthy ingredients added to these unhealthy junks is so minimal that it does not count.
Choose Real Unprocessed Food
We as humans are genetically developed to live on naturally grown unprocessed food. Our ancestors have done it for millions of years and so can we. Try and opt for healthy unprocessed food that are close to nature and not made in a factory.
Remember that eating nutritious food is the only way to have a healthy, fit and active life. Once you are healthy and feel fit you will not need to visit a shop and try out clothes to wonder whether or not your dietary regime has had any effect on you, because the changes will be clearly visible to you.
