Default The Way to Losing Weight...Naturally

The nuts and bolts of eating right maintaining a healthy weight is not
all that complicated. In fact, it is a good bet that most people know
pretty well what is best. Hence, losing weight the natural way should
not be a problem at all.

Consequently, a reasonable approach for losing weight naturally is to
stick to a diet that is high in complex carbohydrates, high in fiber,
moderate in protein, and low in fat.

A complex carbohydrate is a baked potato. Fat is the sour cream and
butter you should not put on it. Fiber is vegetables. Fat is the oil
you should not fry them in. Protein is a lean cut of meat. Fat is the
gravy you should not pour over it.

Moreover, health experts say that dietary fat promotes weight gain
because it is a very dense source of calories. Also, when you consume
excess calories from dietary fat, you store those calories as body fat
more efficiently than excess calories from other sources.

On the other hand, it can also help you lose weight naturally if you
will not fall into the so-called "fat-free" trap. Manufacturers keep
coming out with low-fat or fat-free versions of their best-selling
foods, but Americans keep getting fatter anyway.

One of the greatest delusions of the 1990s is that "no fat" means "non-
fattening." The truth is, you are often getting just as many calories
from the no-fat version, even if the calories are not coming from fat.

The term fat-free can be a trap if you start to believe that you can
eat any amount of the foods that are advertised that way.

What's more, it is best to respond to hunger with healthful snacks.
Health experts say it would be better to try eating every three to
four hours, which may mean a nutritious low-fat snack between lunch
and dinner.

When you feel the urge for food coming on, snacking on something
healthy such as a slice of whole-grain toasted bread is a better
alternative. Never skip a meal and eat snacks instead because that is
the worst thing you can do if you are trying to control your eating
habits and weight.

Remember, if you want to lose weight naturally, you have to keep track
of every food you eat and of every activity that you do. When you say
natural weight loss means that you do not have to use some accessories
or helpful aids just to lose weight.

Losing weight naturally is a process and not a fad. Hence, it would
take a lot of dogged determination, self-control, and discipline just
to achieve your ideal weight.
