02 Jan The Women’s Complete Source to a Healthy Diet
Can you imagine a life where weight isn’t an issue and the time you spend looking for healthy diet programs can be spent doing the things you enjoy most. Well that time has come and removing the word can’t from your vocabulary is where it starts!
I’m probably not the first to tell you that losing weight will not be easy. In fact it’s probably the most difficult self satisfying revelations, second to maybe financial success depending on individual point of view. Losing weight is hard but far from impossible. So why is it that so many people struggle with dieting, especially women?
The answer in theory is simple, you have to know what to eat, where to cut calories and how to change your eating and drinking habits for the better. Keep these things in mind. They will steer you clear of danger and provide a complete source for a healthier diet.
Take the time to track calories. The information can be stored in your smart phone or kept on a small note pad. Tally up the totals at the end of the day. Strive to reduce your calories by 500 fewer than usual.
Get full but do so on healthy foods first. This will satisfy your hunger and accomplish your calorie range naturally. Get in five to eight servings of whole grains, 5 to 7 oz. of lean protein and two serving of low-fat dairy daily.
Watch what you drink. This is often brushed under the rug and forgotten about. The truth is to many coffee’s and one or too many happy hour drinks could rack up some serious calories. Not to steal all the joy ladies but limit yourself to one or two alcoholic drinks per day.
Become your own master chef. Think about it! Who knows your taste buds better than you? Find healthy ways to tame the beast within. Try new healthy recipes that cater to your style of eating. Experiment by allowing different herbs and spices to dance on your tongue. Even if you despise cooking, there are tons of simple dishes that can be prepared in minutes.
I’ve just rambled off a few good ideas to get you started but the proof is in the pudding and I’m not talking about the one Bill Cosby endorsed. You have to seek and find that inner strength. Once you’ve made this connection, a conversation that starts with I will…, must take place. In fact making a list of what you will and want do isn’t a bad idea.
