Enjoyed the info. I like how more and more I'm seeing that "diet" is the food you eat on a regular basis as opposed to a set of eating rules to follow. I think if we all adopted that thinking we would do better overall when it comes to making wiser food choices.
Wonderful article. I find the most success on focusing on the healthy foods I want to eat, versus focusing on what I don't want. If a person continually tells themselves, I can't eat this or that, then that is exactly what we they will have a problem resisting. I also enjoyed the tip about exercise for 10 minutes if that is all that you can do. I find that if I tell myself to at least try and get on the bike or go for a walk, I am more likely to do it. A little effort is better than no effort at all.
Really? many of these things are what got most people in to trouble in the first place. 'Most' people have trouble with moderation especially those with a great deal of weight to lose and these types of articles just make it that much harder to be successful
I loved these and try to do allot of them, such as indulge in foods I like. I also loved the carb rule. Low carb diets, such as a the no gluten diet craze is a gimmick. The only reason people lose weight off those things is usually because when they give up carbs or "gluten" they give up processed foods, refined white pastas, breads and flour as well. I switched to whole grain foods. I eat Daves Killer Bread, whole wheat flour, brown rice and whole wheat pastas. I think its much healthier, than trying to cut out all "gluten," when you do not need to do it.
