Well some sensible advice has finally arrived…
A great FREE E-book is now available, that gives you lots of helpful advice and tips to help you get your ideal body for that summer holiday you are really looking forward.
Diet Tip 1. Eliminate empty calories and junk foods (fats and sugars) from your diet. This one is a no-brainer. If you’re going to eat, eat healthy.
Diet Tip 2. Reduce the amount of overall fat in our diet to a maximum of 30%. Eating less then 20% of your calories from fat is even better. Remember, some fat is essential and some fats are better than others. Avocado, olives, nuts and seeds, various oils like olive, flaxseed and canola, and fatty fish are all good fat choices. Keep some of these types of fats in your diet.
Diet Tip 3. Adjust your caloric ratio to increase protein during the day and decrease carbs at night. As a rule of thumb, you want about a gram of protein per pound of bodyweight per day. Eat protein throughout the day so your muscles get what they need, when they need it. Lower the number of carbs in your diet in the evening, as you have fewer energy demands as the day goes on.
Diet Tip 4: Be choosy about nighttime snacks. Mindless eating occurs most frequently after dinner, when you finally sit down and relax. Either close down the kitchen after a certain hour, or allow yourself a low-calorie snack, like a 100-calorie pack of cookies or a half-cup scoop of low-fat ice cream. Once you find that you’re usually satisfied with the low-cal snack, try a cup of zero-calorie tea.
Diet Tip No. 5: Enjoy your favorite foods. Putting your favorite foods off limits leads to weight gain because it triggers ‘rebound’ overeating. Instead of cutting out your favorite foods altogether, be a slim shopper. Buy one fresh bakery cookie instead of a box, or a small portion of sweets from the bulk bins instead of a whole bag. down with a bag of chips or cookies in front of the television is an example of eating amnesia, where you mindlessly eat without being hungry
Hope my diet tip will work for you till next time…
