It seems that many people today are overweight. No one wants to carry around extra pounds, lout few people know how to slum down effectively. They look for miracle pills and magic cures. In the end, they fail and the pounds come back. But the most effective way of losing weight is actually very simple. It is a combination of a good diet and proper exercise. What makes it work is determination. It requires discipline and commitment to succeed. Here is an example that proves the truth of these words.
My aunt had been trying to lose weight for years. She went on one diet after another, but none of them worked. She lost a lot of weight quickly only to have it come back. Finally, she followed her doctors advice and began to eat a simple, well-balanced diet. She ate lots of fruits and vegetables and avoided high-fat foods. In addition, she joined an exercise class. She worked out three times a week. At first, my aunt wasnt happy because the weight came off so slowly. But her classmates encouraged her to stick to it and eventually she reached her goal. Best of all, she was able to stay at her ideal weight. That was because she had developed healthy new habits.
Drink milk after eating steak
Here’s a way to feel better about eating that occasional juicy steak. Wash it down with a glass of skimmed milk. According to research, calcium may help reduce the amount of saturated fat your body absorbs. Like fibre, calcium binds with fat molecules and helps flush them out through the intestine.
Instead of seconds have gum
When sanity dictates that you stop shoving food into your face at the buffet or dinner table, but somehow you can’t seem to stop, pop mint-flavoured gum into your mouth. It changes the flavour of everything making that third helping of lasagne almost impossible to swallow.
Fork out for a Chinese
When you order a Chinese takeaway, instead of using a spoon to scoop the food out of the carton, use a fork or chopsticks. That way you’ll be more likely to leave behind the fatty sauce.
Eat this, then drink
Eat an apple before you head to the local. This will help prevent you from inhaling three bags of crisps and a bucket of nuts when you sidle up to the bar.
Stop for the Egg McMuffin
Believe it or not, you can eat two McDonalds’s egg McMuffins and get fewer calories than you would from a bagel with two tablespoons of cream cheese. The McMuffins have 580 calories, 24g of fat and 34g of protein. The bagel delivers 643 calories, 28g fat and 20g protein.
