Mistakes You Can Make When Losing Weight
When it comes to information about weight loss it can be difficult to sift through the diet myths to structure a healthy diet that will bring you results.
It can be extremely easy to fall into a bad diet, get discouraged and fall off track.
Not to worry, Rapid Loss is here to guide you on the right track to a healthy diet and to meet your weight loss goals.
Read on to find out if you’re making any of these diet mistakes.
Cutting Out Entire Food Groups
Let’s get things clear. We’re not talking about cutting high sugar, highly processed foods, we’re talking about cutting perfectly healthy nutrients such as carbohydrates.
Although a low carb diet is quite popular especially when it comes to losing weight it’s not a blanket or long-term solution.
A low carb diet can be beneficial for some, for example, a Ketogenic diet which is high fat and low carb has been found to have benefits for those with type 2 diabetes, however, it might be necessary for someone just looking to lose weight.
The truth is the healthiest and most sustainable way to lose weight is eating a healthy, balanced diet with a focus on whole foods.
Eating “Diet” Foods Like They’re Calorie Free
Low fat yoghurt, diet soft drink, sugar free treats. They can be a great tool when you’re trying to lose weight, but they shouldn’t be the basis of your diet.
“Diet” foods can have an inflammatory response in your body so if you’re replacing whole foods with artificial foods it can lead to increased inflammation in your intestines.
Additionally, it might be worth looking at the labels of those fat-free items. Most of the time manufacturers will add excess sweeteners and salt to “diet” foods in an attempt to add more flavour.
So don’t worry about picking up that low-fat yoghurt, instead, choose a naturally low sugar yoghurt and sweeten it with natural sugar from fresh fruit.
Not Eating Enough
Drastically reducing your daily calorie intake seems like the simplest and easiest way of losing weight, but at what cost?
Extreme calorie deficit diets are often the reason why people experience short-term weight loss and after returning to regular eating habits end up gaining the weight back fast. Essentially what happens is your body goes into a semi-starvation mode and ends up storing more food as fat and holding onto weight.
So, for the best long-term results instead of immediately cutting your 3000 calorie diet down to 1200, find out what your body needs to function and exercise to increase your bodies use of those calories.
