Bad Diets and how to eat right
OK, get this into your heads, there is no such thing as a good food or a bad food.
Any food that you can digest, doesn’t kill you or obviously doesn’t affect any medical condition you might have is a good food.
Diets, on the other hand, come in several varieties. There are good diets; bad diets; and VERY BAD diets!
Nutrients and Bad Diets
The human body requires certain nutrients in order to function correctly. It needs vitamins, minerals, and trace elements that keep all of the parts clicking along and all of the pipes clear and in good working order.
When the body is denied the needed nutrients, it first looks around for any of the missing elements that might be stored.
If it doesn’t find any in your body’s reserves, then it just can’t function properly, and the results aren’t pretty.
A good weight loss diet provides healthy, nutritious foods that provide your body what it needs but with less calories.
Nutrients that you need come from a diet that contains, protein, carbohydrates and fat — we DO need fat in our diets — the good kind, however; not the bad kind.
Good Weight Loss Diets
A good weight loss diet is not a starvation diet. It’s not a diet that leaves the dieter constantly wanting more food and ultimately unsatisfied.
Being on a diet doesn’t mean you only have to eat one type of food, or a diet that leaves one food group completely out.
There are lots and lots of weight loss diets out there.
You can’t pick up a newspaper or a magazine, or turn on the TV, without seeing advertisements for one weight loss diet or another.
There are a great many choices, and in order to choose wisely, you need information.
Good weight loss diets will include foods from all of the food groups. Granted, the portions allowed in some food groups might be much smaller than those allowed from other food groups.
But a good diet also advocates exercise.
There are two parts to weight loss. Eating fewer calories is one of them. The other one is burning more calories through exercise.
