Lose Weight without Starving
Don’t Starve to Lose Weight – Why Diets Fail
There’s no reason for you to starve to lose weight. This is the number 1 reason diets fail. Those “diet foods” and pre-packaged diet plans don’t offer the supportive nutrition and calories your body needs to stay healthy. This is why you cheat within weeks of starting a diet plan.
You start out with the best intentions. For a few days, you get up early, work out until your muscles hurt, and dine on nothing but the meager frozen meals that come in those little boxes. But something gnaws at you, nags at you and within a week, you’re downstairs in the fridge at 3 o-clock in the morning shoveling in anything you can find.
Even if you do manage to stick to the diet for a short period of time and lose the weight, you’re only going to gain it back as soon as you finish the plan. Calorie deprivation slows your metabolism to a crawl and forces you to hang on to every bit of fat you consume. If you’re too nutrient-deprived, your body will take what it needs from your muscles. It’s a very unhealthy way to lose weight.
Cleanse Your Body and Shed Pounds Effortlessly
Every day of your life, you’re bombarded with toxins in your food, water, and environment. Chemicals, dyes, additives, preservatives, fluoride, mercury, mold, dust, and pollen get into your system and cause your immune system to over-react. Chronic inflammation leads to a slower digestion and metabolism and increased weight gain.
If you want to lose weight the healthy way this year, you have to have a different mindset than the one you’ve been given by popular mainstream media. Instead of ridding your body of necessary calories, fat, and nutrients, you need to rid it of built-up toxins. This is where cleansing comes in.
Bowel cleanses are the most natural tried-and-true methods of flushing waste material that has collected in the system. They contain a collection of herbs and botanicals designed to easily and naturally regulate your digestive system without the side effects of prescription or over-the-counter laxatives.
Within a week, you’ll notice that belly bloat has gone down while your energy levels have gone up. No more suffering through a night of troubled sleep due to toxic build-up and hunger only to have to force yourself to slog to the gym. When you do a cleanse regularly, you’ll be amazed at the speed of your weight loss and the way your body feels.
Eating Healthy to Lose Weight
One of the biggest scams on the market today is “diet” anything. The companies that sell these products are out to make money, not help you shed pounds. Diet foods are not only devoid of nutritional value, they contain tons of synthetic sweeteners and dyes your body can’t process.
Skip the diet foods and opt for whole foods instead. Whole foods are as minimally processed as possible. This means organic produce, meat, poultry, and fish as well as beans, legumes, eggs, and healthy fats. Shop the perimeter of the grocery store the next time you’re out. That’s where you’ll find the healthiest foods.
Don’t Fall for the Exercise Myth
In addition to trying to starve to lose weight, many desperate dieters over-exercise in an attempt to shed pounds quickly. This can backfire, especially if it’s been a long time since you’ve worked out. Starting out too fast and too strong can mean a serious injury that has you laid up for weeks, months or even years, which will completely derail your weight-loss efforts.
Instead, ease yourself into it. Cleanse your body first, clean up your diet, and start by walking, hiking, swimming or weight-lifting 3 times a week. Build up from there as your body gets used to the exercise and the results will come.
In an instant-gratification society, it’s easy to get sucked into just about any ‘quick-fix’ diet scam. Now that you’re armed with the knowledge you need, you can finally succeed in your weight-loss efforts. Don’t give up. A lighter, healthier you is just around the corner!
