How to Enjoy Food with Healthy Eating

June 5, 2012 · Posted in Weight Loss 

A lot of people are convinced that healthy eating and enjoyable eating can’t go together. Even more people have a hard time imagining enjoying what they’re eating while they’re losing weight. If you’re in that boat, it’s my goal to prove to you that you can do all of these things at the same time. It’s my firm belief that by eating more healthy foods and fewer dangerous food additives, it will be possible to lose weight without sacrificing gourmet eating or going hungry. Say goodbye to tasteless low fat diet foods and hello to the foodlovers diet!

Diets that Won’t Work for Foodies

It’s easy to want to believe in all of the fad diets going by-that they’ll be the easiest way to lose weight and keep it off-but really, there’s no miracle plan to follow. In fact, a lot of these diets are actually dangerous, pumping you full of chemicals, denying you vital nutrients, or putting your body in starvation mode by letting you eat only ultra low calorie foods. Something that does that could never be called a healthy diet plan! These diets often have dangerous side effects that simply aren’t worth the benefits of losing the weight-especially when you could lose the same amount without any of the same risks! Don’t go on an extreme diet unless your doctor tells you to.

Healthy Eating that Fits Your Life

It’s easy to approach a diet from the standpoint of “I have to do this, so I will succeed.” This is a great attitude to have and you should certainly stick to it, but the fact remains that most people who try dieting don’t manage to lose weight and keep it off! In order to avoid becoming another statistic, take a different approach and ask yourself: “Can I comfortably live the way this diet asks me to?” Put yourself in the future you’s shoes for a little bit; imagine yourself after one day, one week, one month of living like this diet asks you to. If it seems daunting when you do, then it’s probably not the right plan! A good diet should be easy to follow-it should leave you feeling satisfied after every meal, both hunger-wise and taste-wise. Look for a diet that’s healthy, easy to manage, and above all doable.

How to Lose Weight Without a Complex Diet

Losing weight isn’t always about cutting foods out-sometimes, it’s about putting foods in. When was the last time you ate a salad? How about a piece of fruit, or whole grain bread, or even a good homemade cookie made with real butter? If you find yourself saying “Well, I had a piece of lettuce on my bologna sandwich, and my Mountain Dew lists orange juice as an ingredient…” well, there’s your problem right there. You don’t necessarily need to give up white bread or Mountain Dew-but if you eat more of the things your body needs, you’ll start to crave these foods less. As a result, healthy eating should start to come naturally to you, and you should begin to lose weight.

You can lose weight while eating the things you love. Healthy eating doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself of the things you want-it means give your body the things it needs!

I love many things, but one that I particularly enjoy is writing about a variety of food and baking related topics and sharing them on my site. For more information about Wedding Cake Stands visit: weight loss ideas for food lovers. See you there!
