Modern diets claim to make you as strong as a caveman, as agile as a fireman and even Bullet-proof! Men and women alike are trying out various diets in hopes of gaining muscle, improving energy, and of course, shedding pounds. But does the question "What should I eat to lose weight?" annoy you as much as it annoys me?
Walking through the local supermarket, one is likely to see magazines, snacks and supplements promoting ‘Eat THIS to lose weight!’ Superfoods, smoothies, seeds, teas, galore! We live in a time where more is more. And don’t even get me started with all the ever changing research.
However, the question both men and women should be asking is: “What should I avoid to lose weight?” Eliminating problematic foods from one’s diet is a much better approach to lose extra pounds.
But where to start? The opinions about the optimal diet are plentiful and passionate.
Examining the areas where many diets agree is a great place to begin. The research is pretty clear that trans fats can clog arteries, and that sugar is not only inflammatory, it’s also addictive. If you think about it, most diet plans are more alike than they’d like to admit. The difference between Paleo and vegan is simply the source of protein. Both diets aim to help people overcome sickness and fight against the odds in order to achieve a healthier and more productive lifestyle.
So let’s agree that what we eat and what we don’t eat is important. But what does a healthy diet look like?
First, eat real food. Make sure the ingredients on your plate are simple, learn to cook a few meals, and develop a routine. These instructions are easy, but sometimes implementing them can be difficult. You must change your entire relationship with food, and then experiment.
Adding supplements or shakes to a Standard American Diet (SAD for short; pun intended) is not the answer. Instead, meticulously examine all of the fuel you’re ingesting to discover the optimal diet for your body. You may feel better after quitting gluten, your brain may perform better after intermittent fasting, and your energy levels may skyrocket after a full night of sleep.
One can’t help but receive nutritional advice from infomercials, billboards, multi-level marketing operations and good ol’ Dr. Google. It’s a challenge to find the right path through all of the diet noise. Ultimately, you should listen to your body and find a diet that fits your lifestyle. And most importantly, identify your problematic foods, eliminate them from your menu, and watch as the pounds melt away.
