What To Eat For A Slimmer You
Posted by Nancy on November 05, 2010
Losing weight is an item that seems to be on a good share of the populations to-do list. Unfortunately, it sounds like a lot of work and not much fun so it slides to the bottom of the list for most of us. Thankfully, there are ways that one can slim down without killing ourselves at the gym everyday (although working out regularly is not a bad idea). Most Nutritional experts seem to agree that filling up on protein, fiber and fluids can go a long way in helping us achieve our weight loss goals. It sounds almost too good to be true that by eating more we can lose more but it has been proven to work in numerous studies.
Forgoing that triple decker cheese-bacon burger in lieu hot vegetable soup may not sound terribly exciting but when you realize how much better it is for your body and how many fewer calories you are consuming it becomes a lot more desirable. It also can be very tasty and filling. Most people are aware that vegetables are loaded with vitamins and minerals which are essential to good health. In addition, they are made up mostly of water and fiber which both work to curb our appetites. If we take it a step further and add grain to the soup (such as rice), we reap the added benefit of eating a food that can help to keep our blood sugar at healthy levels.
Many of the foods we turn to for comfort when we’re stressed are the worst possible things that we can eat. Along with the fact that many of these high calorie, high sugar foods add to our waistlines and jeopardize our health, another negative is that they do not satisfy our hunger for a very long period of time. Eating low-fat proteins such as found in lean meats like white meat chicken and turkey allow us to fill up in a more healthy and long-lasting way.
This is good news for all of us to know that we can eat in a way that will provide us with the utmost benefits.
