The Easy Diet Plan - Weight Loss Plan #2
Written by Diet Bites
Ready to lose weight but not quite ready to give up all your favorite foods?
Not a problem with Diet Bites' Easy Diet Plan. And we're not talking about kissing-up to bland foods that look like your favorite foods in disguise.
Our Easy Diet Plan involves 'the real deal' - those familiar favorite foods in your daily diet that you just can't let go of while trying to lose weight. Yes, our is intended for those individuals who can't turn loose of their favorite foods, yet who want to drop the unwanted weight.
To totally clarify, the Plan contains those familiar foods found at your favorite market. Corn chips, potato chips, peanut butter, pizza - everything goes, most importantly those unwanted pounds!
How can one lose weight enjoying their favorite, familiar foods? Calories. Yes, we can talk all we want to about carbs, fat grams - saturated, unsaturated, polly wants a cracker and so forth fats, but when everything is said and done, what an individual weighs is not based on how many carbs they eat, or how much fat they consume, or certain unique diets - such as one food diet plans, fruity-tooty diets or any other Diet Plan circling the Diet Village. When everything is said and done, weight is governed by calories (energy).
What equals energy? Food calories equals energy. Activity that burns calories equals energy. Combine a daily diet containing an individual's recommended calorie-intake with a healthy dose of exercise and WOW-POW-NOW we have a recipe for Ideal Body Weight.
Does this mean that we can forget about nutrition facts? Forget about fat intake and go a-i-p with butter, whipping cream and fried foods? Common sense and current health data begs to differ - and most certainly, a body that is filled with foods of the highest nutritional values will thrive and experience greater health benefits than those filled with creamy goodness. Sad, isn't it? So take note that even thin people may not be the healthiest individuals on the planet.
Even so, individuals who remain at their recommended weight who enjoy cookies, ice cream, cheese and all that jazz are apt to be healthier than overweight individuals who embrace a healthy diet. Conclusion:Weight impacts overall health, regardless. Here are just a few reasons why:
- Carrying more weight than is intended for one's body frame plays havoc on the bones, creates excess work for the heart and other vital organs, overworks the intestinal track, as well as applies unwarranted pressure on joints.
With all this aside, here is the GOOD DIET NEWS. An individual can indeed enjoy and incorporate food favorites in their daily diet and achieve a healthy weight, as well as a healthier body. Because of the Calorie Needs of an individual's body, it would be difficult to consume an overage of fatty foods without exceeding the body's Calorie Needs.
About those 'thin unhealthy people' referenced above.... Some love the unhealthier foods like donuts, cupcakes, cookies and pies, yet they desire to be thin. In turn, that means in order for them to retain a state of thinness or recommended weight, they must remain within their recommended Daily Calorie Requirement.
Let's say that Jenny requires 1,600 per day in order to retain her current weight. She must also walk one mile every day in order to maintain her current weight, and if not she must decrease her calorie intake for the day in order to avoid a Calorie Overage. Jenny is a daily dieter that is at her recommended weight, who loves desserts. In fact, she loves desserts more than the official food groups.
She loves desserts so much that instead of following the healthy recommendations of the food pyramid, she instead opts to enjoy 1,200 calories worth of sweets each day which generally consist of 2 cupcakes containing 200 calories each, a hazelnut biscotti dipped in chocolate which goes wonderfully well with her morning cup of java - which contains 125 calories, a glazed donut (275 calories) and a very large cinnamon roll (400 calories). She also enjoys one frozen dinner containing 400 calories - just to keep things in 'balance', but she is certainly not keeping her nutritional needs in balance, is she? On days where she experiences a Calorie Overload, she steps-up her activity level to avoid weight gain.
Is Jenny an example of a healthy thin person? Unless she has Super Genes, probably not. So let's take a look at Jody who also enjoys desserts.
Jody has the same Calorie Requirements and Activity Requirements as Jenny in regards to maintaining her current weight. Jody chooses her daily diet from the official food pyramid, ensuring that she enjoys vegetables, fruits, proteins, dairy and healthy grains. She also enjoys the foods that she likes - pizza, spaghetti, ice cream and cookies. When eating pizza, she opts for thin whole grain crust, mozzarella cheese, and lots of veggies. When enjoying spaghetti, she opts for the 50 calorie per serving sauce over the 200 calorie per serving sauce, and when the spaghetti contains meat sauce, she chooses the meat lowest in fat content as her recipe base. When she enjoys ice cream, she enjoys her favorite brand and measures out her serving size. When enjoying cookies, she checks the label for the calorie content before eating.
Is Jody an example of a healthy thin person? It's highly likely, but her overall health is still greatly dependent upon her gene pool.
Using the above examples, we hope that we clearly illustrated how our favorite foods can be incorporated into our daily diet, allowing us to both lose weight, as well as maintain our healthy recommended weight.
