You’re Dieting Wrong

By Kirstin Chock

The definition of dieting has evolved.  Dieting means to go on an all liquid diet, be a vegetarian, and/or skip breakfast, when the exact definition, according to the dictionary, is that dieting is managing food and drink consumption. 

People need to stick to the exact, literal meaning of the definition of dieting in order to see lasting results.  The problem is that the media does not portray this method or educate people about this and that the media has such a strong influence over the actions people take.  Yet, realistically, since the media cannot be abolished, the one thing that people do have control over is educating themselves to take the real steps to improving their quality of life.

The popular way is the wrong way

If you are contemplating if you should do a popular, “fad” diet, do not do it.  Many studies have proven this to be true.  According to a study published in the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health reported that that over a ten-year time frame, dieters were more likely to gain weight than the non-dieters.

Handling Dieting And Hunger. Weight Loss Needn’t Mean Starving

Why is it that the minute you go on a diet your appetite kicks up a notch or two and you spend the whole time feeling like you’re starving? Is your mind playing games on you? How can you avoid the dreaded hunger that is often associated with dieting and often leads to diet sabotage? Read on for these handy tips on handling dieting and hunger.

Inappropriate breakfast.
Eating too little, or the wrong things in the morning can set you up for an awful diet day. Research consistently shows that those who skip breakfast weigh more than those who don‘t. Avoid high sugar, high fat, high GI foods for breakfast as these will have you hungry and searching for unhealthy snacks sooner rather than later.

Foods containing lean protein, and low GI foods, such as oats with skim milk, will leave you satisfied for longer, without the dreaded sugar crash and starvation. Great breakfast selections include yogurt and berries, grainy breads, and scrambled eggs or omelets.
