Burn Fat And Feel Great With These Weight Loss Ideas

If you are struggling with your weight, you’ve probably heard time and again that you need to lose the excess weight, in order to benefit your health. This doesn’t have to be impossible, however. Losing weight and becoming healthier, can be eased with the use of some of these helpful tips.

To help you lose weight be sure to always pay attention to not only what you are eating, but how much of it you are eating. The main culprit of this type of eating is doing so while watching television or reading. It is possible to lose track of how much you are eating and fill yourself up past what you would have normally eaten. Either decide your portion ahead of time, or do not let yourself get distracted while snacking.

If you’ve reached a plateau in your weight loss, try something new. Shake up your routine a little bit. Take on a new workout routine, or experiment with different sports and activities. Don’t take the lack of weight loss to heart; sometimes everyone gets stuck at a certain level. The important thing is to keep going.

Take a look at the food you are currently eating. Ask yourself if the food that you are eating is healthy. If the food that you are currently eating is unhealthy, and high in fat, sugar or calories, then you should start by changing what you eat. You should also take into account how much and often you eat

To keep yourself motivated on the path to meeting your weight loss goals, get in the proper mindset. Prepare your mind to accept the fact that you will need to make some changes to your eating habits. After all, you want to lose the weight initially, but you also want to keep it off.

If you are on a diet and want to save time and money, you should try buying chicken breasts in bulk at your local grocery store and cooking a week’s worth on Sunday night. This will help you make sure that you do not waste time every day cooking for lunch and dinner.

Bringing your weight down to a healthy range is one of the most important things you can do to improve your overall health and extend your lifespan. By following the advice given in this article, you’ll be ready to make the necessary changes and lose the extra weight that you’ve been carrying around.

Whats Important In A Healthy Eating Program

To develop a healthy eating program to maintain a healthy weight, it’s a good idea to do some research on health and nutrition. If you’re not trying to lose weight but just want to eat well for good health, then it’s important to understand how your body uses food. This makes it easier for you to choose healthy food and not be tricked when less-than healthy foods call themselves natural and healthy.

A healthy eating program should offer you much more than just a good balance of protein, fat and carbohydrates. But if that balance isn’t in place to start with, the plan probably isn’t all that healthy. Any plan that keeps fat at about 30% or less of the diet and stresses good fats over saturated fats probably has a healthy fat balance. There should be plenty of sources of protein other than meat, like lots of fish, healthy dairy sources like yogurt, and beans.

And carbohydrates should be mostly whole grain sources like whole grain bread and oatmeal. Whole grain pastas are better than regular pastas, and basmati rice is better than regular white rice. A healthy eating program that stresses these smart choices over things like instant white rice and instant pre-packaged sweetened and flavored oatmeal is better than one that includes too many convenience items.

A healthy eating program should follow the government food pyramid pretty closely. Whole grain carbohydrates, fruits, vegetables, beans, fish, lean meat and dairy products can all be part of a very healthy diet. But there are other things to look at, no matter what kind of diet you choose to follow.

You want to make sure your healthy eating program has enough diversity so that you don’t get bored, and you get all the vitamins and minerals your body needs. Baked chicken breasts, broccoli and a whole grain roll might be a healthy lunch, but no one wants to eat that several times a week. Your plan needs to include a variety of vegetables, not just one or two. There are more lean meats than chicken breasts, and many different ways to prepare these and other dishes.

You’ll also want to make sure that unhealthy things aren’t creeping into your meals. Some diets stress that you use margarine instead of butter, for instance, because it’s lower fat and not full of saturated fat like butter. But margarine is mostly trans fat, a fat that even the government now agrees is worse for you than saturated fat. It’s a fat that should be eliminated, or at the very least severely restricted, from our diets. A healthy eating program that allows certain commercially packaged low-fat cookies and treats might not take into account the amount of trans fats and sugar in those foods, either.

You have to be the detective and examine all the parts of the diet you want to follow. Yes, the balance of foods and nutrition is important, but don’t forget to look at all the other parts of your healthy eating program.

Back To Grandparents …What Did They Eat and Why


lets have some fun and take a leap back in time.

We can see our grandparents with their small plot of land.This is where they grew their potatoes and their vegetables.

Running around that piece of land where the chickens. They got their milk from a farm or shop close by and they got their meat from the local friendly butcher

Got the picture?

Back to that statement …FOOD WAS FOOD


Their food was not packaged, our grandparents  never saw a food label.

They bought the food raw and they cooked it from scratch.

Now lets move forward a little to our parents.They were growing up in the generation that was getting its first experience of convenience food. They also had television where they were exposed to advertising and as they say in the song …”Times they were a changing”

So what exactly was happening?

Big business was happening and big business has caught on to the faster pace of life and the need for convenience. Of course in our parents defense when the food companies were getting in their stride our parents did not have the internet like we do today so they did not have access to the information that we have at our fingertips.

So if we combine all of these scenarios…increase in convenience, influence of advertising and the lack of any good education on food then for the first time ever our parents started to outlive their children

Let me remind you ….This was unheard of in our grandparents generation

What a shift in one Generation!

Don,t you think it is now time that we went back in time and started to eat like our grandparents?

Now that we have got that under our belt then lets look at the reasons why our grandparents ate so much better that we do now.

First and foremost they did not have as much money as we do and so eating out at restaurants did not happen. They could not order these super sized meals  and they could not afford to over indulge.

They could not to buy fancy products and so there just was not any market for products that were not raw. They ate eggs and they ate porridge.

Oh boy do I remember that !…..my grandmother insisting I eat my porridge before I leave the house!

They ate less food and they ate the right food. Their idea of a meal was meat, potatoes and  2 vegetables. Just yesterday the lady who comes to clean our house once a week was telling me that this is what she still eats. She comes from a farm in N.Ireland and still eats the way she was brought up. I do believe that in the countryside there are people who still eat in this good healthy way.

In the cities…well that another story.

So this sounds boring ….maybe?…. but by eating this way it meant they ate the correct amount of carbohydrates, protein, fats and vegetables and they left nothing on their plate.

None of these prime cuts of meat.  They ate the liver, the kidneys and everything else. Their diet was diversified and they ate food that was in season

That is what you call Clean Eating.

Your Grandparents Were Right


Our generation lives in a world where the children may die before the parents. This is because of the obesity crisis that is affecting the younger generation.

It is the first time ever in our history and it asks the question as to why our generation is suffering more than our grandparents.

All of us are now aware of how diet affects our health but not many of us have a good idea of a long term eating plan that will lead to optimum health with weight loss.

If you really want to have good health and lose weight then you need a long term eating program and you really need to think seriously about Clean Eating.

Clean Eating?… what is that?

Well to put it simply it is eating food in its most natural form just like nature intended.

Food in its natural form means food that has –

Not been manufactured

Is not packaged in a factory

Has not been designed by food scientists

Does not rely on clever marketing tricks to move it off the shelf.

Let’s think back… is that not what our grandparents used to eat?

That is what they called food

Our grandparents grew their own food and they bought it from other people who caught and killed it.

Clean Eating is about eating what grows in the ground, what can be picked from a bush or plucked of a tree.
It is the animals that fly, the animals that swim in our rivers and seas and the animals that eat the grass on our land.

OK so this sounds boring beyond belief but that is how homo-sapiens evolved to digest and absorb those types of food. These foods are the ones that make us feel full, they satisfy us and they give us the nutrients we need to repair our bodies

These foods

have no chemicals.

Were not designed in a laboratory.

They are just food.

Clean eating is eating real food with the emphasis on real.

So how does Clean Eating compare to dieting?

Lets look at a diet… what is it?

A diet is a short term fix to lose the extra weight you have accumulated. The problem here is that diets are usually gimmicks and temporary fixes.

The latest fad in diets is produced with one priority and that is to make money

In fact what a lot of diets do is just reduce the calorie intake without taking into account the nutrient requirements of your body. lets just say that diets are created with the market and profit in mind.

It is no coincidence that the foods that are the best for us provide the fuel our bodies need. These are the foods that our grandparents used to eat.

Eat those foods add a little exercise and your body will transform.

Once you understand what clean eating is all about you will change the way you think and feel about food
