Many people are not successful in losing weight because they are on severely restricted diets that have a negative impact on the body. It’s ironic but true that by reducing your calorie intake too much, you actually encourage your body to maintain its fat stores. When you reduce your choice of food groups to one or two, you can’t provide your body with all the nutrients it needs. This triggers cravings and uncontrolled eating. Worst of all, human beings are not emotionally designed to subsist on small portions and boring food. Unlike bees and birds, we cannot tolerate the same type of food day after day.

Fortunately, you can achieve weight loss without starving yourself. How can I know? Well, I discovered the strategy by accident and have lost a fair amount of weight that way. A mother of three young children has no choice but to find ways to ‘eat’ herself to lose weight! To my surprise, I discovered that it was not necessary to starve yourself to achieve weight loss.

The first thing you have to do is be aware of your eating patterns. Next, identify those calorie-laden extras you’re indulging in. cut them. For example, I used to love to serve myself a small bowl of full ice cream after dinner every night. Eliminating that helped me save over 140 calories every day!

White flour may taste great, but it packs a lot of empty calories. That’s why when I go shopping I always tell my kids ‘if it ain’t brown, throw it away’. Whole grain cereals and bread contain more fiber and less sugar. Thus, they keep you feeling full for a longer period of time. Plus, after a while you’ll just start to love its crunchy texture.

These days many people eat much more than their body needs. Restaurants, takeaways and shops all over the world encourage you to eat large portions of food. That’s why it’s smart to cut portions. Even a 5% cut will drastically reduce the number of calories you eat. This will speed up your weight loss efforts by 50%!

Your digestive system needs some rest, just like you. Try to eat dinner as early as possible. Then, give your body a long break by refraining from eating until it’s time for a healthy breakfast. This will help you lose weight and sleep well.

Many people eat a lot of empty calories in the form of unnecessary drinks. Alcohol, carbonated drinks, and juices simply give your system large doses of calories. Replacing these drinks with fresh, pure water will help you lose weight.

As you can see, the idea behind this weight loss strategy is to eat smart. Eating smart helps you lose weight and keep it off. It alters your eating patterns for life and allows you to easily maintain your weight.
