Healthy Eating Guide To Weight Loss

People wanting to lose weight commonly think about reducing the amount of food they eat through dieting. This may be a solution but it’s not exactly the best one for long term weight loss. In fact, depending on the amount you reduce in your food intake, it may even be dangerous to one’s health. So how do you lose weight safely and effectively?

Here are some weight loss diet tips that can be followed anywhere, everyday:

  1. Make a delicious low fat mayonnaise by combining one teaspoon of Dijon mustard or satay sauce with a low fat yogurt.
  2. Try not to skip meals. Skipping meals causes the body to slow down your metabolism, as it attemps to conserve calories during a period where limited fats & fuel are available. Remember that eating consistently can speed up your metabolism.
  3. Stuff vegetables like capsicum and zucchini with flavored fillings or minced chicken, white meat or fish. These are healthy and are low in fat.
  4. Try pita bread roll ups or wraps with salad fillings – simple to make and delicious.
  5. 8 hours after you wake up, your metabolism slows down – that is why exercising for 30 mins before dinner can increase your metabolism for about two to three hours.  This produces an increase in burned fat even hours after the workout is over.
  6. Add alfalfa or mung beans to salad. These are great sources of iron.
  7. Good cooking & healthy eating starts with learning about nutrition & how to prepare a healthy meal.
  8. Learn how to make your family’s favorite recipes & make sure that the amount of fats, salt & sugar are reduced. Replace non-fat yogurt with cream, try stir-fry minus the oil and use herbs & spices instead of salt for taste.  
  9. Slowly eat and chew each bite during meals as this will decrease your appetite.
  10. Consume 3 small meals & 2 snacks daily instead of 1 or 2 large meals.
  11. Use chicken stock when stir-frying.  This will cut down on hidden fat.
  12. Buy non-toasted muesli instead of toasted. A plate of toasted muesli often contains more fat than a serving of bacon & eggs.
  13. As much as possible do not remove the skins of fruits and vegetables since most of the nutrients are concentrated under the skin.
  14. Warm water and just a squeeze of lemon juice before breakfast can get your metabolism going. This can also help prevent constipation plus it’s really good for your skin.
  15. Soya beans & tofu are some of the best sources of vegetable protein. All legumes provide some protein, so include lentils, lima beans etc into casseroles and soups.
  16. Look around for a weight loss club or grab a friend and support each other. This can be really motivating. Doing things as part of a group can help you enjoy your weight loss program even more.
  17. Though it’s hard at first, try not eating 3 hours or more before bedtime.
  18. Why not pasta your choice for fast food? – Preparing a pasta meal or salad can take only 10 minutes – simple and healthy.
  19. Chilli can help increase your metabolism – even the milder varieties.
  20. Try making omelettes without adding the egg yolks! A dramatic decrease in fat.
  21. Substitute baking soda, baking powder, MSG & soya sauce when cooking.
  22. Remove fat from the baking tray by dropping ice cubes into it. The fat will stick to the ice cubes.
  23. Try drinking hot water instead of cold water in the morning. This can increase the speed of your metabolism & help burn more calories.
  24. Eat before you go food shopping and always prepare a shopping list. Try to buy food which fits into your weekly healthy eating plan & don’t be tempted to buy too many sweet snacks or fast food.
