Diet or Lifestyle Change?

Updated on August 31, 2012

Silly Diets

Diets are funny, there are so many of them and they all say something different. The ones that always made me laugh were the ones that would tell you that you could eat more and lose weight... Just take this pill or drink this juice. Those "diets" never made sense to me and yet people believe in them. I for one, think it might be an American thing, we try the diets that don't work and finally we believe in one for no other reason then we need to believe that one has to work. Of course, we are fooled. After losing the water weight we don't lose an ounce.

Some people have trouble dieting because of food allergies or other health problems. But we all still hope for that one diet that will be easy and actually make a difference in our waist line. Many of us are still looking for that diet or magical pill that will melt the fat and shape our bodies. It seems like a dream, but there may be hope...

Common Sense Diet

CNN Health has released a story on a diet that makes sense. It isn't even really a diet, more of a life style change or just a meal change. Here's the main points...

  1. Eat food that is lower in calories
  2. Eat food that is higher in nutrition
  3. Eat food that has little to no bad fats like lean meat or low-fat dairy

The main focus is to eat foods that have fewer calories in each bite. This would mean that you would be able to eat more for fewer calories. High calorie foods that are high in sugar will leave you feeling hungry which causes you to eat more. Low calories foods that are high in good nutrition will fill you up in the same amount of bites but you will have consumed far less calories and bad fats.

Soda is the worse thing we consume in society today. It's easily obtained and is always within our budgets, it also has so much sugar and man made ingredients that after one can of regular cola we are more thirsty and more hungry then before we drank it. This is because of the way our bodies process sugars and other ingredients that are bad for our bodies.

If you are tired of diets that leave you hungry, exhausted and feeling gross, this may be a good safe bet. There are no side effects other then losing weight. No pills to take or journal entries to feel guilty about writing. Just buy food that is lower in calories and contains less sugar. At least start by looking at the food in your cupboards and trying to read the ingredients label.

      Yes mj2991, I agree people don't care and that's the problem. The less people use their brains when it comes eating the bigger they get.
