Who would have thought that you could eat more and still lose weight
Weight loss is about becoming quite strategic with your nutrition habits. There will be moments when hunger might throw you off — but that should be expected and embraced. This method will make it a lot easier, that’s for sure! It doesn’t have to be a struggle to attain your weight loss goal; I see it as a game that can be a lot of fun whilst accumulating a wide range of strategies to build up your weight loss pocketbook of tricks. This one, however, is straightforward. Feeling deprived and hungry day in day out isn’t fun. I don’t recommend it! Although it may happen on odd occasions, you should spend most of your time enjoying lots of energy and an abundance of good quality food whilst relaxed enough to enjoy your holidays without sacrificing too much. There is one hack that many of you might not be aware of. I certainly didn’t use this tool when preparing for my bodybuilding shows. It would have increased my health potential and kept my metabolism firing along. I wish I knew then what I know now. It’s never too late to make the change. Now is as good of a time as it will ever be — given we’re about to start a new year. Let’s make this a better year by focusing on quality regarding our nutrition. Quality foods it the best dietary strategy around. But, here is how to lose weight the right way, still feel amazing and end deprivation. Volume foods are essential. First of all, I’d like to point out that if you are obsessed with more volume eaten equals more calories; you will be in for a shock. This isn’t entirely true. Eating more of the RIGHT foods can help you feel full and lose weight in the process. Tricky as it might be, you have to pack your meals with a lot of low-calorie food, encouraging satiety whilst slashing calories. Some examples are:
- Veggie or bone broth
- Swiss Chard
These are the types of foods you have to add to your meals every single day. They promote healthy longevity, eliminate toxins, and provide many vitamins, minerals, and fibre. You really can’t go wrong with these foods. Adding cold-pressed olive oil, vinegar, salt and perhaps some avocado will make meals even tastier. One option you can combine these high-density veggies with your ideal protein source.
Why this option is ideal for you (Or anyone)
There is no hard or fast rule with this plan. Instead, you can try a routine that suits you — especially if you are a person who likes rules and conventions. Focus on the dense foods you enjoy, and eat seasonally. Then, you will ensure you’re eating a wide variety of different foods and getting the nutrients you need.
What are the drawbacks?
The drawbacks are pretty possibly gastrointestinal upsets. Those who aren’t used to eating so much fibre may become quite uncomfortable and self-conscious. The trick is to add those high fibre-rich foods gradually and slowly. You might like to go with one alternative for a week without a particular food (say garlic) and re-introduce it slowly by adding in smaller amounts.
If you are like me and find raw veggies hard to digest, and cause some mild stomach upset, swap and change it up by baking some of your veggies a couple of days a week, followed by a raw veggie meal. My stomach handles baked garlic and onion instead of the natural variety. I can get quite a stomach ache otherwise. I hope this helps you out — it’s one of my most loved strategies around & I’m sure it will work for you too. Happy volume eating for good health and permanent weight loss!
