Eat Real Food and Forget Dieting
Disgusted and discouraged, you step off the scales in your bathroom. You can’t believe you gained ten pounds over the last two months. Immediately, you make plans to start a new diet. Unfortunately, dieting isn’t your strong-point. You detest counting calories and feeling hungry all of the time. If you can relate to this scenario, consider banishing the word diet from your vocabulary. To drop the pounds and keep them off for life, embrace eating real food.
Do you associate the word diet with restrictions and hunger pangs? For you, starting a diet might feel like punishment for gaining weight. Instead of forcing yourself to abide by the rules of an unrealistic, fad diet, adopt a lifestyle change. Before you can accomplish this task, changing the way you view food might be in order. This is especially meaningful if you constantly reach for unhealthy, processed foods when you’re sad, stressed, or even bored. View food as fuel to help you power through your day. When grocery shopping, fill your cart with delicious, waistline whittling items:
- Lean sources of meat
- Fresh fruits
- Fresh vegetables
- Low-fat dairy products
Incorporating real, healthy foods into your diet means you no longer need to meticulously count calories at the dinner table. You can simply savor the tasty food on your plate. Besides preparing mouth-watering dishes at home, you can also enjoy dining at your favorite restaurants. Unlike following a fad diet, eating real, healthy foods won’t make you feel isolated from the rest of the world.
If you’ve attempted more fad diets than you can count, you’re likely eager to give up dieting for good. To help you begin the journey to better health and happiness, consider scheduling a free, initial appointment with a consultant at a Metabolic Research Center near you.
