Is Diet Confusion Stopping You From Losing Weight?


Diet advice - a million "experts", hundreds of snake-oil miracle pills, and an infinite number of human bodies make losing weight the subject of controversy and confusion.

The diet program that worked miracles for your best friend does nothing for you. You feel depressed - you feel doomed to be fat. You want that miracle pill that will take the weight off in 48 hours.

Unless your DNA is the same, why should her diet plan work for you? You have a different body shape, different level of health, different life style and different emotional outlook.

Diet advice - Eat small meals 5-6 times a day. Better for digestion and keeps the metabolism high.

Diet advice - Eat only 3 full meals a day. Not enough stomach acid to properly digest food if you eat 5-6 times a day.

Diet advice - Eat only vegetables or avoid all things white.

Diet advice - Eat only protein

Diet advice - Eat only one type of food at a time

What is a person to do? Throw up your hand in despair or just think for a minute. Listen to your own body. Does eating a big meal make you feel sleepy? Does eating sugar make you feel sleepy? Does eating white bread make you feel sleepy? Or jittery?

Maybe you have a blood sugar problem. Sadly, most people do in this day and age of epidemic diabetes. You don't want any peaks and valleys. So your diet should be along the lines of several small meals a day. You want to eat every couple of hours to keep your sugar levels - level.

Are the traditional 3 meals a day wrong? No, not for some people. If however, you stuff your stomach until it protrudes and you feel like you can't breathe, you are probably over doing it. Did you go for a good run before you sat down to breakfast? Did you go for a nice walk after that evening meal?

It is really not about 3 meals verses 6 meals, it is about what those meals consist of in the way of sugars, carbs and bad fats.

A diet of sensible healthy food and a half hour of exercise like a walk every day are guaranteed to give you good health. Over time it may even reverse some of the effects of that bad diet and lack of exercise program you lived on for so many years.

Focus on the good calories, the ones that are used to keep your body healthy. That doesn't mean you can't have a donut once in a while. A healthy diet is one that does not deprive you of food. A healthy diet may restrict the quantity of certain foods. A healthy exercise program wants you to move your body enough to maintain your muscle structure in more than your typing fingers.

Common sense and a positive intelligent attitude will make the difference.
