Health and Fitness Diets
Diets and exercise are both equal opportunity endeavors. Men and women of all ethnicities and those who are young, old, or somewhere in between are all welcome to join millions of others in eating less and exercising more in pursuit of looking better and being healthier.
The number one New Year’s resolution made is “lose weight,” followed closely by “get into shape.” There’s no age limit on wanting to look good and feel good.
The first step in a diet and exercise program is usually determining what KIND of diet to use. There are a lot of choices.
You can choose a diet that requires you to count calories, carbohydrates, or fat grams.
You can choose one that includes a number system that makes counting calories, carbohydrates, or fat grams easier or simpler.
You can choose a diet where food is sent to you weekly or monthly already prepared and in the correct serving size.
Diets are different, but the commonality of going on a diet for the purpose of losing weight is that each and every individual should secure the blessing (and possibly the advice) of their personal physicians.
You want to make sure that your overall health is good enough for you to make a drastic change without upsetting your system something fierce!
And be warned: dieting, even moderate and sensible dieting, can upset your system.
The human body requires certain vitamins, minerals, and trace elements to function correctly.
Ingesting less food can create a deficit in the nutrients supplied to the body.
The idea of any good diet is to eat less but to eat a well-balanced diet that supplies the body with all of the “stuff” that it needs to function correctly.
