Are You Eating Enough to Lose Weight?


Woman Looking Into Refrigerator

Eating sugary or processed foods will not help you lose weight. Such foods are not only fatty but also increase your appetite, leaving you looking for more food just an hour or two after eating. Skipping meals or not eating enough food at mealtimes is also counterproductive. Your body goes into starvation mode and your metabolism slows down, causing you to retain weight rather than lose it.

The only way to lose weight is to eat enough of the right foods every single day. Foods with a high fiber content leave you feeling satisfied, enabling you to resist the urge to snack on unhealthy foods later on. Carbohydrates that are particularly good for you include oatmeal, brown rice and black rice. Low-fat, healthy protein options include low-fat cheese, milk and yogurt, fish, tofu and beans. Vegetables that leave you feeling full include broccoli, celery, cauliflower, asparagus, zucchini, cucumbers and carrots. Fruit is a great snack in-between meals if you need a boost and you can eat plenty of it without worrying about your weight.

It is also important to stick to a healthy eating schedule. Breakfast is a must, as your body needs a boost after going without food all night long. Having lunch and dinner at around the same time every day trains your body to expect food at the right times and prevents you from snacking on the wrong things at the wrong time.

Consistently eating right is the key to losing weight and keeping it off. While you can indulge in unhealthy foods from time to time, the goal is to train yourself to eat natural, healthy foods on a regular basis. These foods boost your metabolism, help you lose weight and offer a plethora of other great health benefits that you will not want to miss out on.

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.
