Cutting Foods Gradually
Reducing your food intake gradually will help you lose weight in the long term.
One of the biggest mistakes people make when seeking to lose fat is to cut out all the foods out all at once. This is a surefire way to fail in your efforts.
- While it can be effective to dramatically cut out foods for short periods of time (about two weeks), it is not conducive to long term success.
- Don't jump your calories down quickly as the body will react with an emergency state and will hold onto every available calorie you give it. This means no fat loss.
- When you are going to be dieting in the long term, remove and reduce foods gradually.
- Start with junk food, then reduce excess carbohydrates such as breads, cereals and pastas.
- If you eat too many carbohydrates during the day, your body will have no reason to dip into it's fat stores.
- Keep protein (meats, eggs, fish, etc.) and good fats (fish and olive oil) in your diet at all times as these nutrients are very important to your body when dieting.
- Protein will help to prevent muscle breakdown and consumption of good fats, such as fish oil, can actually help speed your fat loss.
