Where to Begin With Your New Diet Plan
So many times when an individual decides that it is time to lose that excess belly fat, they simply do not know where to start. All too often they embrace a daily eating plan filled with the following common foods associated with losing weight:
Protein Group: Tuna, Boiled Eggs
Vegetable Group: Celery, Carrots, Cucumber, Broccoli, Cabbage
Grain Group: Rice Cakes
The fruit and dairy groups are often left out - or very minimal amounts are added to the eating plan which is horrifically low in energy values.
Result of a Diet Plan Too Restrictive in Calories
In turn, the body goes into lock-down - virtually shutting down the metabolic rate to a snail's pace. Did you know that when you omit certain vital nutrients from your eating plan that the body isn't able to even process weight loss? Keep in mind that it operates on a chain-reaction - and each link requires a specific vitamin or mineral. When it's missing, why it's the virtual definition of 'The Missing Link'.
In addition to the paltry plate at meal time, the individual also decides to inflict more punishment on their poor body by going into warp mode where activity and exercise are involved.
At times, the body will actually collapse. And other times, it just might end up six feet under. Oh the price we pay for trying to quickly lose 20, 30, 50, 75, 100 or more pounds that we added to our body frame over several months or years - attempting to lose all the weight in a fraction of the time in which we gained it.
Healthy Diet Equals Permanent Weight Loss Success
Get your metabolism onto the fast track to weight loss by embracing ALL of the food groups, by participating in moderate activity. Rather than a rice cake for 50 calories, you can enjoy a side salad or a cup of chicken noodle soup or a serving of lean jerky or a slice of thin sliced bread or three apricots or a plum - and the list goes on and on.....
