We ask you to review your dietary habits that were in place before you went onto your weight loss plan - or those in your current diet if you are still thinking about losing weight. When it comes to sweet treats and desserts, how much of your food and beverages make up this bulk?
Do you or did you eat a significant amount of sweet things throughout your day? Were your sweet things in the form of processed foods? If you had the choice between an apple or a slice of apple pie, which did you more likely tend to choose?
Did your meal plate or snack time often include pudding? If so, that is one commonality discovered in recent years for overweight and obese individuals - they tend to enjoy pudding.
Let's shift the focus to your drinks and beverages. When dining out, were you likely to order a milkshake or malt to accompany your meal? Or a sugary soda or lemonade?
The responses that you provide are important keys to weight loss that can assist you in your current or planned diet. If you were inputting more than one sweet treat - be it in the form of liquid or solid food, then it's likely that this contributed greatly to weight gain, particularly if other meals were enjoyed in full amid the day.
Therefore, one of the best methods for keeping those sweet calories to a minimum is to substitute these processed foods for natural food choices. Let's view the stunning differences in caloric values - and see firsthand how inviting fruit into your diet can assist with substantial weight loss results.
Note that juices are more than double the calories of their fresh peers and that dried fruits contain many more calories than when consumed at their fresh-picked stage.
If you have a deep sweet tooth that demands to be filled, you can lose weight without going on a diet - and simply substituting the fresh fruit choices for dessert and snack times - and that's something to sit up and take notes about.
