Eating healthy can help in weight loss, in addition to providing more energy to the body. That is why we propose seven guidelines to get on a diet 10.
Maintaining a healthy diet and a healthy lifestyle has its complications ... However, achieving this not only provides benefits for your body, but also improves your mood, your aesthetics and reduces the risk of disease. For these reasons, we propose seven ways that will help you achieve a proper diet:
1. START WITH REALISTIC EXPECTATIONS
If you intend to lose weight too quickly, the plan can work in the opposite way, becoming a counterproductive diet. In fact, numerous studies support that people with obesity are more likely to abandon a weight loss program between the first 6 and 12 months of the diet. On the other hand, sticking to a more realistic and achievable goal can prevent discouragement and even lead to further weight loss.
2. THINK ABOUT WHAT REALLY MOTIVATES YOU
Remembering why you made the decision to eat a healthy diet will help keep you on track. What's more, it is advisable to make a list with the specific reasons that led you to start it so that you can read it every time you need to remember it.
3. DO NOT BRING UNHEALTHY FOODS HOME
It is very difficult to eat healthy if you are always surrounded by foods that for you are a difficult temptation to resist. So if other members of your family want to have them at home, they should show solidarity with your cause and keep them out of your reach.
4. NOT MAINTAIN THE PHILOSOPHY OF “ALL OR NOTHING”
A common scenario is indulging in an unhealthy snack and continuing to binge throughout the day thinking that the diet has already been ruined.
5. WEAR HEALTHY SNACKS TO NOT FALL INTO TEMPTATION
Sometimes you can't fight hunger and to avoid falling into the dreaded excesses, a good option may be to always have a healthy snack on hand, such as almonds or Greek yogurt.
6. PERFORM EXERCISE
We know the theory: when changes in diet occur, they are reinforced if they are combined with regular physical activity. Now you just have to apply the story.
7. ESTIPULATE A STRATEGY BEFORE EATING OUT
Eating or dining out is, without a doubt, one of the biggest challenges. To make following your diet more bearable in one of these situations, it will help you to look at the menu before leaving so that you can make a healthy decision before indulging in leisure once you arrive at the restaurant.
There was a time when protein shakes would have 50 to 100 grams of protein per shake. It wasn’t until this study came out that it was determined that per meal we can only ingest 20g to 30g of protein every 3 to 4 hours. Every person varies on timing and needs. Instead of having 2 chicken breast per meal (which has approximately 62 grams of protein), have 1 chicken breast per meal (31 grams).
