Interesting tips. Though one thing I did notice is that the author bashed on diet sodas because of the artificial sweeteners like aspartame and Splenda, and that it "made him feel hungry," but touted Crystal Light as this amazing alternative. Really both of them are packed with artificial chemicals. I'd say stick with water and tea or at least things with natural ingredients.
oh, absolutely! but you'd be shocked by how many people are oblivious to this fact. people seem to think there's some intricate, complex, and esoteric science that goes into losing weight, when in reality you can't have a more straight-forward concept.
doesn't matter if your diet consists of grapefruit and water or pizza and beer--as long as you have a caloric deficit, you'll lose weight!
1. Dont overcomplicate it. Too often you hear people say things like "Oh, at my current weight of 175 pounds, I should be eating between 1800-2300 calories per day, but 45% should come from lean meats and 20% carb but if I run 3 miles I burn X amount of calories but I must have Y amount of protiens per pound of body fat.........." Dont make out to where you need to hire a quant analyst with modeling skills to create a spreadsheet for you.
2. Eat healthy. We all learned in 7th grade health class about proper nutrition. Just get back to the basics and start eating right - Vegetables, fruit (in moderation), lean meats.
3. Eliminate the bad stuff. NEVER drink soda. Stay away from white breads, white rice and white pasta. Dont eat fast food, or at least save it for special occasions or only once a quarter.
4. READ AND EDUCATE YOURSELF. Lots of materials are available at your fingertips (google). Do a search on Proper Nutrition and you'll have your answers.
5. Dont be lazy. This is simple. Too man people are just flat out lazy. Too lazy to prepare their own food. Too lazy so they dont do it and complain that "its too hard to eat right".
