How to eat yourself thin

Most diet programs, whether they say it or not, rely on the fact you stop eating so much. As crazy as it sounds the key to losing weight is to actually eat more. In fact, many experts are now coming round to the idea that the three meals of breakfast, lunch and dinner should be supplemented with snacks.

In between your usual three meals of breakfast, lunch and dinner you should add in three small snack breaks. The reason for this is the less hungry you are through the day the less you’ll feel the need to reach for a chocolate bar after you haven’t eaten for a few hours.

Restrictive diets

Also, diets that actually restrict how much you eat do more harm than good because you are effectively starving your body. By doing this you actually end up storing more fat as your body attempts to conserve its energy. The key here is not how much you eat but what you eat. Obviously eating pizza six times a day is not going to do you any good with regards to your weight loss goals. But, by knowing the right foods, you can actually eat more and weigh less. A healthy body can be created in the kitchen.

Blend and boring diets

Another misrepresentation when it comes to diet programs is that the choices of what you have to eat are often bland and boring. They need not be! As long as you eat healthy foods in bulk the odd little snack of your favourite food won’t do too much harm. Eat healthily all week and then once a week go nuts and have your favourite food no matter what it may be.

One of the biggest mistakes people make is skipping meals and gorging themselves to feed their hunger. Sometimes this can’t be helped. You may have to work a long day and not have the chance to eat. However this will result in unwanted fat.

Smaller meals are the key

Rather than having three large meals a day break them up into six smaller meals all two to three hours apart. This will not only give you more energy throughout the day but it will enable your body to process the food in good time and therefore you will be able to burn calories naturally throughout the day.

It is useless following a diet plan that makes you unhappy. Mean of these fad diets focus on quick results by ensuring you hardly ever eat and when you do it might as well be rabbit food. This will just make you unhappy and lacking in energy.

Instead focus on eating regularly and having the odd treat here and there. By doing this, coupled with a simple exercise plan, you will soon notice that you actually eat more and lose weight at the same time as increasing your energy levels throughout the day.
