Diets

There are a million diets out there that exist to help us lose weight. Most of them deal with weird foods that we've never even heard of and fancy recipes that call for obscure and expensive spices. With those kinds of requirements, it's no wonder that so many people struggle to lose weight.

There are some doctors that will tell you to eat once a day and some who will tell you to eat five times a day. Conflicting advice leaves most of us lost and confused as to which way is the right way to get healthy and lose weight.


Think Simple

When it comes to losing weight there are very few things that you need to understand. The main principle is to eat healthier. You don't have to start eating brussel sprouts and tofu if that's not your thing. What are the healthy and natural foods that you really enjoy eating? If you love bananas, incorporate more bananas into your meals and snacks when you are hungry. If you love tomatoes, make a huge pot of tomato soup once a week.

The key is to invite more of the health foods that you love into your life. Do not force yourself to eat things that you do not enjoy for the sake of losing weight.

The second key to losing weight is to eat less. Sometimes counting calories is the most beneficial thing that you can do for yourself. It helps you keep track of the foods that you are eating so that you can regain some of your control over your eating habits. The healthier the foods you eat the more you get to eat (caloriewise). Don't make calories your enemy. Use them to help you keep track of your nutrition and eating habits.

The third key to losing weight is exercising. This is not a must for losing weight, but it will help you to be more fit and toned and it will speed up your metabolism in the process. Don't use exercise as an excuse to eat more fatty foods. You are better off not exercising at all than running for an hour every day and allowing yourself to eat three pizzas and a box of donuts. Think healthy. Be sensible. You know your body better than anybody else does.

Green Tea

Aside from eating healthier and other basic principles of weight loss, there are many things that you can do to aid you along the way. Green Tea is a powerful weight loss aid that will guarantee results when used properly. Drinking green tea will boost your metabolism, infuse your body with antioxidants, and keep your body feeling healthy and powerful.

The way to use green tea in your diet:

Green tea is your best friend if you want to lose weight or if you just want to be healthy. When you have the urge for a snack, drink green tea. When you want dessert or more food after you are already full, drink green tea. When you are feeling bored, but not hungry and you want to eat something, drink green tea. When you are at your meal times and you want a soda, drink green tea.

Drinking tea in place of snacks and sugary drinks will curb your appetite, satisfy you, and boost your health and metabolism. Tea is usually brewed hot, so sipping it slowly will keep you satisfied for some time. Do not add sugar to your tea. This will counteract the health benefits that you are trying to obtain. If you need to, use honey or lemon, but try to drink it without any sweeteners or milk.

Experiment with different types of green teas to find your favorite. You will come to enjoy drinking tea over any snack or soft drink after some time.

Do the Best You Can

When it comes to dieting and weight loss, the most important thing is that you love yourself at any stage, phase, or size. Do not place conditions on when you can love yourself or be happy. Begin to love yourself NOW. Feel good NOW. Your life will change and things will begin to get better and better if you keep good feelings and nurture a healthy relationship with yourself.

You are worthy of anything and everything,

-Tracy
