Desperate to lose weight quickly | Health, Eating, & Calories
Given the choice we would all prefer to have good health over not so well and we would rather feel energetic and vibrant than fatigued and tired. Fortunately we can have at least some control over this just by eating right.
A healthy diet works to keep us in shape physically and mentally. When we feel better physically we naturally feel better emotionally.
But of course, it’s easy to say that you will eat right, and strive to shed a few pounds, but actually doing it is another story. Most of us aren’t sure where to start.
We know we need vitamins and minerals but we may not be sure which ones. And most of us know that we need protein but some people aren’t aware that we also need fats and carbohydrates as well.
Carbohydrates are the body’s main fuel source; it is what the brain uses for power and it’s the best fuel for our muscles. But there are some carbohydrates that should be avoided, such as the simple sugars found in sodas, candy, and many snacks.
Instead, consume whole wheats and fruits as these will keep you feeling energized and help you avoid sugar highs and lows.
Essential fats help our body absorb fat-soluble vitamins. These vitamins assist with weight loss and maintenance. However, saturated fats should be avoided. These fats are found in meat, milk and dairy products.
While caloric intake depends on many variables and is individualized according to body characteristics and lifestyle, daily food intake should always include all the nutrients required for optimum health.
The body can store some vitamins, but daily consumption is important because many of the vitamins are water-soluble, so they are quickly flushed out of the system. Additionally, the body needs minerals, protein, and fiber.
Eating a wide variety of food in moderation is an easy way to insure that you will consume the necessary nutrients. Another option is to add a daily vitamin and supplement.
Besides eating right you will also need to drink plenty of fluids each day. Six to eight glasses of water is the standard recommendation.
Drinking water before and with meals can help to create a feeling of fullness, therefore helping with diet efforts. Use of salt should be minimal. Salt results in water retention and higher blood pressure.
The average adult woman needs about 2000 calories per day and the average man needs about 2500 calories per day. Keep in mind that these figures are based on averages so they have been generalized.
Exact figures should be determined based on characteristic variables specific to the individual including his/her lifestyle.
