Diets To Lose Weight

There are so many different diets to lose weight out there that trying to figure out the best one for you is absolutely mind-boggling. There’s the milk diet and the chocolate diet and the soup diet and other extreme diets that will help you lose weight, some very quickly, but, they just do not teach you how to eat better for the rest of your life.

One of the best diets to lose weight is not a diet at all. It is a lifestyle change. If you just make some simple changes with the types of food you eat, watch your portion sizes and get a little exercise everyday you will lose weight.

Here are some simple guidelines. If you drink a lot of pop, stop. Switch to water or green tea. If you switch to green tea get the flavored stuff, it just tastes better. Flavor your water with a little lemon or lime juice. Not only will this give the water some flavor, citrus is a natural diuretic and will help with any and all water weight you have.

If you eat out a lot, stop. Start cooking for yourself more. If you do not consider yourself a good cook then learn a few simple meals and practice. The more you do it the better you will get. Eat a lot of salads, too. They are easy to make, you can just go buy a bag of pre-washed salad greens and add what you want. Throw in 3 ounces of grilled chicken breast, canned tuna or salmon fillet and you have a great meal.

A secret…try a Greek, raspberry or balsamic vinaigrette. They are all very low in carbs just be sure to measure out the correct serving size. A little vinaigrette goes a long way. Or learn to make your own low-fat, low-carb salad dressing. It is totally up to you.

Eat five or six small meals a day. This may seem like a real big pain in the backside but if you plan things out and do it right it will make putting these meals together a snap. Just cook a bunch of chicken all at once and portion it out or buy the small cans of tuna. They are already three ounces, hey, look ma, no measuring!

Keep the already portioned chicken in the freezer and just thaw it out in the microwave when you need it. I would not recommend pre-cooking fish though, it takes no time to cook and is much better if you eat it right after it is cooked.

If you eat a lot of bad carbs, stop. Bad carbs come in the form of all the processed food you see on the shelves at the market. Breads, cereals, anything made from white, flour, white sugar, and even white rice are all considered to be bad carbs. all they do it raise your blood sugar and then add to the fat around your middle.

Like I said, making small changes in the way you eat and what you eat is one of the best diets to lose weight that I have found. Follow these tips and you will soon be losing weight, too.

Best Diets To Lose Weight

How many diets have you been on? If you are like most people who have been trying to lose weight, then it’s a safe bet that you have tried more than your fair share of diet plans. But, the fact that you are reading this points out one major fact: those other diets didn’t work as well as you had hoped. If they had, you wouldn’t be looking for information on the best diets to lose weight.

When considering various plans, remember that everybody is different. What works for others may not work for you, and vice-versa. See, if you have tried diet after diet, only to put all of the weight back on (if you even lost any), it’s not your fault. You were probably following a diet that worked, it just didn’t work for you. That doesn’t mean it was bad, it just means it wasn’t a match for you. It happens.

Don’t give up though. With the sheer number of weight loss plans out there, you can bet there is at least one that will work for you. If it helps, think of it as a game; a form of hide and seek. The right diet is hiding, and you are going to find it! Besides, having a good attitude about everything will make it that much easier for you.

Aha! That gets to the heart of the matter…how will you know when you have found one of the best diets to lose weight? That’s a great question. Again, everybody is different, but there are a few signs you should be looking for.

Is the diet balanced? Any diet that tells you to eat all the cabbage, cottage cheese or bacon that you want is a sure sign of trouble. No matter how much you love the particular food now; eating it all the time will make that enjoyment wear off. The same concept applies to diets that tell you to avoid whole groups of foods. Low-carb diets are a good example of these. Even if you see good results at first, such a diet is very hard to stick to. Sure, you can eat all the hamburgers you want (as long as you skip the bun), but the craving for carbs will end up being more than you can handle. So, be sure any diet you want to try allows you to eat a variety of foods.

The other reason a variety of foods is so important is nutrition. A lot of people think they can eat anything they like and then take a multivitamin to make everything okay. While you may want to take a vitamin supplement every day, it’s impossible for any pill to contain the full range of nutrients found in food.

Common sense is really the key to finding the best diets to lose weight. It may take a bit of time to find the right one for you, but it will be more than worth it once the weight comes off, and stays off…for good.
