It’s very important to always remember you must eat right for your body type! Most people fail to reach their desired goals because they are simply not eating right for their body type, that is crucial for success. First off, you must identify the characteristics of your body type and make the properly nutritional adjustments, once you do that, you will start seeing progress almost immediately. The results will almost be shocking in a good way. You do not have to be a fitness guru to have a great body. You can finally get rid of that unseemly body fat once and for all, and if you keep on track, you can keep it away. The following are a few diet tips that will always work, if they are followed to the letter.
Firstly, and this is extremely important, combine protein with carbohydrates at each meal. This will greatly slow down the rates that carbohydrates are absorbed by your body, resulting in much less insulin spikes. This will help decrease the rate of fat storage. Protein not only helps to build muscle but to maintain it as well. The more muscle you can keep while dieting the more muscle you will burn off at rest, and that’s really important in reaching goals. So instead of just eating rice and vegetables, add some chicken to go along with it. Or if you are going to make a sandwich try tuna instead of something like peanut butter. However keep in mind that peanut butter does contain protein, but it does also contain a very high amount of fat, so it should always be used in moderation.
The next tip and an equally important one is, to always eat your larger meals first. When you first wake up your body is starving for nutrients, so this is the time when your body is most sufficient of burning up calories. Making your first meal the largest will greatly help you with fat loss, it will also help you with hunger control. Those that skip breakfast, are often those that have the most trouble maintaining a healthy weight. Most people eat a skimpy breakfast and by lunch time they are starving. This will then often times lead to binge eating. It is also the same scenario when it comes to dinner. If you don’t eat much during the day, you will be like a ravenous wolf when you get home, and you won’t know when to stop.
By the time your brain sends a signal that you are full, you will have already eaten too much. Making a simple adjustment such as this, will make a big difference in your program and success. Always alternative high and low carbohydrate days. Cutting out carbs does work but only to a certain extent. The main drawback is that you will start to lose energy and it will put in a bad mood. The way to fix this, is to eat a lower carbohydrate diet for two or three days, then on the 3rd or 4th day, you can raise the amount of carbs you eat.
