Nutrition for fit body ,health and weight loss.
Is it just me, or you can see it, too? On every tv show - in the morning, evening and in between- there are reports about food. They tell us how to cook, how to eat, where to eat, healthy eating, bad eating, organic food, junk food; “eat this, not that,” how eat to lose weight, what to eat to be better in bed and have glowing skin at once! I especially like when, immediately after a segment about the importance of exercise and losing weight, they show step- by- step instructions on how make a chocolate dessert in five minutes! What is wrong with this picture?
In this country, where obesity is epidemic, the media makes us think about food 24/7. Is it a conspiracy or just simple money-making?
Nutrition is essential to survival for humans and all other living species. But food is overrated. A lion is not concerned with how to eat fresh caught antelope with spices or without, he just eats to survive and make babies with all his five wives (and for this, he needs a lot of energy!).
My point is that human nutritional needs are not far from a lion’s nutritional needs. We need to eat for survival, but in modern society food is close to a religion. A lot of people have very strong emotional attachments to their favorite meals. They dream about them not because of hunger, but because maybe for a few seconds it will make them happy. I’ve seen excruciating pain on my clients’ faces - close to limb amputation without anesthesia - after my speech on “what you can and cannot eat.” And after the shock passes, I get the passive/aggressive: “I don’t eat/like broccoli, carrots, meat,(fill in the blank).“ Guess what?! If something eatable doesn’t make you physically ill, you can eat it. By the way, a lot of the things you love to eat make you ill, bloated, and give you heartburn, but you eat them anyway. Just stop thinking about food like it is your “hot lover!” More accurately, food should be more like a “co-worker“- you think about him when you need help.
If you want a drastically better body than the one you have now, you need to make a wholesale change to your nutrition plan . The magnitude of that change will seem intimidating. You'll question whether all this is truly necessary, and you'll be tempted to make do with less – much less. Most women never reach their goals because they're waiting for the magic bullet, the one tip or trick that will finally get them the body they've been looking for. Because they don't want to actually stick to a disciplined diet. They don't want restrictions put on the foods they can and can't eat. Most importantly, they want a very easy way out. Talk about the grass is always greener mentality.
Stop dreaming about miracle pill or diet . May be it will be a break thought but I am afraid not in our lifetime.
The simple task such as making smart eating choices , could be the most difficult thing you ‘ve done in your life . But it is worth the afford to be healthy , more energetic , be fit and look good.
Principles of smart eating :
- Eat every 2-3 hours.
- Eat complete, lean protein with each feeding opportunity.
- Eat vegetables with each feeding opportunity.
- Every serving should be about the size of your fist.
- Eat veggies/fruits with any meal. Eat "other carbs" only after exercise.
- Eat healthy fats daily.
- Don't drink beverages (soda, beer, etc.) with more than 0 calories.
- Eat whole foods whenever possible.
- Turkey breast
- 96% lean ground beef
- Chicken breast
- Sea bass
- Orange roughly
- Low-fat cottage cheese
- High protein greek yogurt like Fage
- Organic brown rice
- Long grain wild rice
- Sweet potato
- Chick peas
- Fruits and vegetables
- Egg yoke
- Olive oil
- canola oil
- Fish oil
- Ground flax seeds
Condiments and spices are fine, but use no more than a tablespoon three times a day.
The process will require a significant dose of that forgotten ingredient: discipline. Discipline is a by-product of purpose and desire, so you'll need those too. You'll need to remind yourself why you're eating this way (how lean and muscular you'll eventually be, for instance) and how much you want to reach your goals (or how it'll feel to fail yet again). You have following these principles 90% of the time or more. Always have food with you in the purse or car. Fruit, a protein bar, a baggie of nuts . Eat The Same Things Every Day, it is so much easier in preparation and planning, and will remove decision making stress from your head . Keep in mind, most of the people with the absolute best physiques tend to eat very similar things day in and day out. Don’t start to look for a way out .This plan might be a little inconvenient, and it certainly won't allow for you daily high-fructose corn syrup fix. But if you stick to it, you'll be very pleased with your results.
