Stop Dieting Start Living

Stop Dieting Start Living

This post is about stop dieting start living. Are you tired of the diet merry go round? Are you spending thousands of dollars but not able to achieve permanent weight loss results?

Stop Dieting Start LivingHere is something that the diet industry does not want you to know.

Over 90 percent of diet pills, potions and programs fail. On average, only 1 of 10 people that start a diet will reach their weight loss goals.

People spend tens of billions of dollars a year to try and lose the fat that resulted from a diet of animal based products. There is no fiber found in animal products.

Plant based foods are loaded with fiber and have no cholesterol. Here is a photo of what I had for lunch today:

Many people fall victim to the deception that you can lose weight by just taking veggie capsules from the weight loss company. Reality is if nothing changes, nothing changes.

Stop Dieting Start LivingIf an overweight person is sitting on the couch most of the day and drinking 2 or more large sugar sodas, eating a pizza and then having some ice cream for dessert, they will never lose weight for good because they need to make a total lifestyle change in their relationship with food.

North America is the most over fed nation in the world and many people are not getting the necessary amino acids, enzymes, minerals, and vitamins their bodies need for good health.

waterDo you get hungry in between meals? The body is trying to tell you that you are not getting enough nutrients into the digestive system.

Do you drink at least 8 glasses of water each day? Don’t count coffee, sodas or tea. By drinking water, you will aid  your body in eliminating excess fat.

Health Tips

1. Avoid eating fast foods, junk foods and processed foods.

2. Eat foods as grown. The more raw foods you eat the better.

3. Start off your day with 2 large glasses of water then go for a brisk 30 minute walk before breakfast.

4. Eat a large breakfast of fresh fruits and healthy whole grains.

5. Get some fresh air and sunshine each day.

6. Avoid eating between meals. It is also a good habit to drink a glass of water 30 minutes before eating and do not drink any fluids while eating your 3 meals a day.

7. Eat your largest meal at breakfast, then a healthy plate of fresh vegetables with some whole grain rice, quinoa or other grain around the middle of the day. Eat a small supper of soup or salad.

8. Get an accountability partner to help you help yourself and others achieve that perfect body for the beach or swimming pool.

eat rightAre you ready to make a total change in your eating habits?

Beans, Fruits, Legumes, Nuts, Seeds, Vegetables and Whole Grains are loaded with Fiber.

Fiber is a type of carbohydrate (just like sugars and starches) but since it is not broken down by the human body, it does not contribute any calories. Yet, on a food label, fiber is listed under total carbohydrate. So this gets kind of confusing for people who have diabetes. Carbohydrate is the one nutrient that has the biggest impact on blood glucose. So, does fiber have any effect on your blood glucose?

lose weightThe answer is that fiber does not raise blood glucose levels. Because it is not broken down by the body, the fiber in an apple or a slice of whole grain bread has no effect on blood glucose levels because it isn’t digested. The grams of fiber can actually be subtracted from the total grams of carb you are eating if you are using carbohydrate counting for meal planning.

Fiber is a good thing for people with diabetes.

The average person should eat between 20-35 grams of fiber each day.  Most Americans eat a diet that primarily consists of animal foods. In those cases, the person is only getting 10 grams of fiber in their diet.

A study in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that people with diabetes who ate 50 grams of fiber a day — particularly soluble fiber — were able to control their blood glucose better than those who ate far less.

      Thanks Asheley ! Enjoy taking care of myself so much that I turned the passion into a business 🙂

  • Wow! Daniel Parsons, this is a wonderful post about the obesity problem. It is true that during dieting we actually stop living. Being overweight is the common problem now a days. People are so busy in their life that they just forget to concentrate on their health and size. Thank you so much for sharing it.
