Have you been told to lose weight?
Whose advice are you going to follow?
Have any of the tips in this link worked for you?
There is not enough room here to take up all 8 tips, so let’s just look at two that I cannot believe are there.
What do you think of this one?
Quote; “Eat the right number of calories, for how active you are, so that you balance the energy you consume with the energy you use. If you eat or drink too much, you’ll put on weight. If you eat and drink too little, you’ll lose weight. The average man needs around 2,500 calories a day (10,500 kilojoules). The average woman needs 2,000 calories (8,400 kilojoules). Most adults are eating more calories than they need, and should eat fewer calories.” Unquote.
Waow, now aint that helpful?
I am not disputing that if we eat too much of anything, we will put on weight, as that means more calories but it is not as simple as that. This theory was taking machines into account, your body is alive and has other ideas! Are you among the people who have been doing that and it has not worked? There are all sorts of reasons why, and if you go to you-tube and look up Zoe Harcombe, she will give you the science.
Another one is;
Quote; “Base your meals on starchy foods. Starchy foods should make up around one third of the foods you eat. Starchy foods include potatoes, cereals, pasta, rice and bread. Choose wholegrain varieties (or eat potatoes with their skins on) when you can, they contain more fibre, and can make you feel full longer.
Most of us should eat more starchy foods: try to include at least one starchy food with each main meal. Some people think starchy foods are fattening, but gram for gram they contain fewer than half the calories of fat.” Unquote.
Consider this; We have seen all the news recently about how sugar is now the arch enemy with weight management and type 2 diabetes.
But did you know that when you eat starchy foods the body converts it to sugar?
Just try a little experiment. Put a piece of bread on your tongue and see what happens.
It becomes sweet! Why? Because the moment the starch enters the body, it goes to work converting it to sugar.
I like the bit about “Some people think starchy foods are fattening!” But just because they have less calories gram for gram, does not mean anything. This is simply taking calories and nothing else into consideration at all.
If only it was that simple!
These are just two of the tips in the above link, some of them make sense, but most of them not so much.
So before you do what your leaflet from the NHS tells you to, look it up for yourself.
Have a look at my website for reading material and also download a FREE weight loss tool kit there. That will explain all about nutrients and nourishment and a whole lot else that you need to know before embarking on any weight loss regime.
Or have a look at my book on Amazon Kindle.
