Fast Weight Loss Diets
Eating smarter vs. crash dieting. Creator of the Zen Anti-Diet, Aaron Hoopes, emphasizes that teaching the weight watcher the basic principles of smart eating is much more effective when promoting a healthy lifestyle. Without suffering from starvation your new weight loss diet plan will include meals that balance calories from carbs, proteins and fats. Studies have shown an increase in muscle mass in some individuals on the zone diet.
Since dieting is not the answer to long-term weight loss what is? Experts are saying that improving your nutrition is the most important thing you can do to make significant progress. Your probably thinking, “duh” at this point. But, if you’ve ever struggled with traditional dieting, like most of us have, your probably wondering why you’ve ended up disappointed after rigorous dieting. The main reason diets often don’t lead to results is because we think the diet is over when the process is complete.
“Calorie restricted diets are not meant to continue forever”. However, switching over to a manageable healthy eating strategy can last you a lifetime. The Zen Anti-Diet is a good example of how simple it is when you stop the dieting and try a healthy strategy that works for you. Instead of a diet, restricting calories, its a nutrition plan that gives you a feeling that its not just healthy eating, but a lifestyle choice with health benefits. Three basic reminders can help you stay on the right track: (web MD)
- Aim for balance. Most days, eat from each food group -grains, protein foods, vegetable and fruit, and dairy. Listen to your body. Eat when you’re hungry. Stop when you feel satisfied.
- Look for variety. Be adventurous. Choose different foods in each food group. For example, don’t reach for an apple every time you choose a fruit. Eating a variety of foods each day will help you get all the nutrients you need.
- Practice moderation. Don’t have too much or too little of one thing. All foods, if eaten in moderation, can be part of healthy eating. Even sweets can be okay.
Not only is this the most simple and effective nutrition plan to follow, its helps you to prevent health problems in the future such as heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and some types of cancer.
