What do I eat to lose weight?
This past week I received a number of emails from readers asking the question, what foods should I eat to lose weight?
The answer is both simple and complex because one of the best ways to lose weight is to keep eating the same foods you eat right now. Are you wondering how I can say that? We'll, the answer is simple. Any "diet" you use that makes you eat foods or do things that you aren't comfortable with will sometimes help you lose some weight in the short term but will not help you out at all in the long run.
It all comes down to calories. If you eat more calories than you burn, you will gain weight. If you take in fewer calories than you burn, you will lose weight. Sounds simple right? Unfortunately, when people take this advice to the extremes, they just end up destroying their bodies. It is not healthy to lose more than 1 or 2 lbs per week for most people.
Any diet that makes you lose more 1 or 2 lbs per week is virtually guaranteed to be doing it because you are either losing water or muscle or both. Those of you who have gone through my course know that this is one of the worst things you can do for you body. Anyways, if you do the math 2 lbs/week adds up to 104 lbs over the course of a year. That's more than most people need to lose.
There are many nutritious food that you can eat to help you feel and look healthier. I recommend that you try to find some healthy foods that you can include with the foods you already eat. It would be terrible for me to say that you had to eat certain foods because I know that almost nobody would be able to keep it up. I've made a list of suggestions below. They are only suggestions are not supposed to be a meal plan. Have a look at the following foods and see if any of them appeal to you. Then try to include them into you meal or snack time as a healthy alternative to what you might be eating now.
If you find that you don't like something, don't worry, just try something else.
- 2 cup bran flakes with low fat milk
- Egg whites (all the fat's in the yolk, but so is most of the taste. I usually put 1 or 2 yolks in if I'm using 4-6 eggs.)
- Roasted Chicken Breast
- Tossed salad (easy on the dressing)
- 1/2 cup brown rice
- 7 oz. baked Salmon
- 1 small baked potato
- 1 cup mixed vegetables
- Get some plain yogurt and mix in some fruit on your own (they add a lot of sugar to the premixed yogurts)
- Fruits and berries: bananas, strawberries, peaches
