Are you confused?

Lots of people get overwhelmed when they think about losing weight.

Should I go low carb?

Should I go low fat?

Should I go high protein?

Should I count calories?

Should I try those skinny shakes?

Thing is these things can work.

For a while but then your body starts to fight back because because it it needs the nutrients that it gets from healthy, natural foods.

So if you’ve tried the above and crashed and burned don’t think that you’ve failed the diet.

Instead consider that the diet was flawed and that failure was inevitable, eventually.

So what to do…..

Start with the basics:

Eat more vegetables.

Vegetables are full of vitamins, minerals, fibre and cancer fighting components that help to fill you up so you naturally eat less.

Eat protein at each meal.

Protein is the building block of every cell in your body therefore getting an adequate intake ensures your body can repair and rebuild.

Protein has a high satiation index than carbs so it helps you to feel fuller for longer.

Protein also had a higher thermic effect than carbs and fats meaning the body burns more calories to digest and absorb it.

Drink more water.

Water helps to hydrate you, flushes out toxins and helps you to regulate your appetite.

This is because thirst and hunger trigger the same response in the brain.

Most people are chronically dehydrated and eat when they should be drinking water.

Cut the crap:

Processed foods have no place in our diet. They are pretty much responsible for the obesity and type 2 diabetes epidemics sweeping the world.

It’s labeled a disease but it really is a chronic mismanagement of food intake.

Too much sugar over too long a period results in a down regulation of the body’s insulin receptors meaning the body cannot do anything with the sugar/carbs that you eat. Type 2 diabetes can be controlled with the right diet.

In closing:

Long term weight loss isn’t about deprivation and it’s not about moderation.

It’s about making positive changes to your lifestyle. The above principles I’ve shared with you are not part of a diet. They are just s smarter way of eating.
They make up the core of the nutrition principles that I teach to members of my Six Week Transformation Programme. If you would like to finally end the confusion about what to eat and what not to eat to achieve lasting results then why not enrol in my next programme that starts on Monday 6th March 2017.
