How to Eat All You Want and Still Lose Weight


How would you like to eat all you want and still lose weight, or maintain your trim figure?

Sounds impossible?

Have you seen those skinny young women who eat like horses, with plate after plate of food at the buffet table without putting on any weight?

Ok, so some of them may be bulimic. You know, the sort who eat all they want, then go to the toilet to throw up everything they just ate. Not only is that disgusting, it is very unhealthy. That damages your body in the long run.

No, I'm talking about the girls who just cannot seem to gain weight. Probably due to a very high metabolic rate. They burn off all the calories they consume, effortlessly. Not every skinny girl is bulimic or aneroxic or even on a stringent diet. Some are just naturally thin. I know. In my early twenties, I was one of them.

When you are young, your metabolic rate is high. As you get older, your metabolism would naturally slow down. Also, back in my skinny days, I walked a lot. As a student, I was underweight. Yet I could out eat any guy at a buffet table. That was because I walked a lot. I was on my feet walking around the campus when not at class. I had to climb a hill several times a day as the hostel where I stayed was on the top of the hill. As a young adult, I walked a lot. I'd go shopping for hours after work. Walking at least 3 hours each day, browsing from shop to shop.

When I let a more sedentary lifestyle after marriage, I really gained weight. Staying home, watching tv instead of walking for hours in the malls let to serious weight gain. Even though I was eating far less than before.

The gist of this is that your weight depends on the amount of calories you burn as well as the calories you consume.

Consume more calories than you burn and you end up gaining weight. Burn more calories than you consume and you lose weight.

So if you seriously want to eat all you want and still lose weight, you have to make a serious effort to burn those calories you consume.

Just ate a big mac?

That is worth 485 calories.

Playing tennis for an hour burns 450 calories.Scrubbing the floor for an hour burns 440 calories.

Try doing that to offset the calories you consumed from that big mac.

When I run on a treadmill, uphill with the slope set to the max at 15, and speed at around 6.5 for 35 minutes, I burn about 410 calories.

So if you want to lose weight and eat Big Macs, or other high calorie foods, you have to be prepared for some serious exercise.

Likewise, the snacks you might eat while watching TV, or in the office all contain serious calories. Take note of what you eat, how many calories they contain and burn those off through exercise.

The good news is the plain water, contains no calories, yet you can feel rather full by drinking plenty of water. Try drinking a large glass of water before you eat anything.

Feel like snacking? Drink 1 large glass of water first before proceeding with your snack. Drink another large glass of water as you eat your snack. That would reduce the amount of snacks you eventually eat.

Drink 1 large glass of water before your meal, and drink another glass of water with your meal. You'll probably eat far less than normal during the meal even though you eat to your heart's content.

Next, get your body to burn off as many calories as possible.

I like The Firm's Transfirmer system as not only does it burn off the calories in that one intense work out, it boosts your body's metabolic rate, so you continue to burn calories at an accelerated rate for the rest of the day, even while you sleep.

Basically, muscle burns more calories that fat. Muscle looks very much better than fan. If you want a serious workout, check out Billy Blank's Bootcamp. Billy is a reknown martial art's champ. His training program delivers. Not for sissies though.

So you see, you can eat all you want and still lose weight, provided train your body to burn off all the excess calories. I never said it was going to be easy though.
