If you are frustrated about the weight you gained this year and looked online for easy diets there are over four million sites you can visit. It seems everyone has an easy diet to show you. So before you jump into this pool of words, let’s step back and see what it is you are really looking for.
The word “easy” can mean different things depending on the circumstances. If you have only 5 pounds to lose in order to wear certain clothing to an event two weeks away, there can be a quick and easy answer. “Easy” takes on a different meaning if you have been carrying around an extra 30 pounds for over a year and the doctor advises you to lose weight with PhenQ. Easy can be defined as something that requires little effort or thought and is not difficult to endure or undergo.
Let’s go back to the 5 pounds to comfortably fit into certain clothing. It’s easy, significantly reduce the amount of sugar and salt you eat, reduce meal portion size, stay away from fast food, and you should be able to lose those five pounds and maybe a few more within two weeks. Done, no problem, except when you go back to your regular eating habits you will gain back all you lost plus some.
The 30 pound scenario becomes a little more involved. But the same principle is true, eat fewer calories than you burn and you will lose weight. Good nutrition is important and, if you want to maintain a healthy weight, you must do physical exercise on a regular basis.
Speaking of healthy, it is recommended that you get checked out by your doctor before beginning any weight loss or exercise program. Don’t run the risk of potential health issues or injuries by skipping this point.
There are many fad diets that people try, often times moving from one diet to another in an attempt to reach their weight loss goals. Let’s take a quick look at some:
The Fat Burning Breakfast
We are told by many sources that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Many people actually skip breakfast, or have just a piece of toast along with a sip of juice and a gulp of coffee. There are foods that provide good nutrition and help you burn calories. Unfortunately what many people consider a good breakfast consists of processed grains and sweets. This works in the opposite direction by adding fat and calories.
The Low Carb Diet
Reducing the amount of carbohydrates you eat results in your body producing less insulin which makes it a lot easier for your body to process the sugars you do eat. You will lose weight, but the main concern is about getting balanced nutrition. Carbs play a significant role in the health of our body and should be a part of a well structured diet.
South Beach Diet
I can write about this one from personal experience. There is no question; if you strictly follow the directions of this diet you will lose weight. It worked for me, but, yes I gained it all back…and some. The sticking point was there wasn’t a lot of flexibility in what you could eat. There are only two or three foods I don’t care for but I found this diet too restrictive for me.
The key to “easy diets” is in your mindset. When you discover a proven diet plan that makes sense to you, where you find flexibility and feel that you have some control over the direction you are going, it becomes an easy diet.n.
