Look To Change What You Eat Instead Of Simply Eating Less
You have heard over and over that diets don’t work. The traditional American idea of dieting is “portion control” or reducing your caloric intake. While portion control is critically important, the common approaches are incomplete. You are only reducing portions of unhealthy and fatty foods, foods that are low in nutrient density.
There are new diet approaches out there that seek to fundamentally change what you eat. These diets slash the amounts of saturated fats and sugar that you eat and radically increase the amount of plant-based foods. The Fat Smash Diet (by Dr Ian Smith) is one such popular approach, and Eat to Live by Dr Joel Fuhrman is another. In addition, PEERtrainer has recently come out with a simple (and free) approach called the Cheat System, which combines simple portion control with an increase in high nutrient foods.
These approaches are about fundamentally restructuring your eating habits and these diets work. When you reorder your diet to eliminate processed foods, slash dairy and meat consumption and increase your intake of fruit, vegetables, beans, rice- you will lose weight and reduce your risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes and a host of other diseases. Improper nutrition is at the root of most diseases. Animal based foods contain cholesterol and boost those levels in your body.
Plants do not contain cholesterol, and help reduce levels in your body. As blood cholesterol levels decrease, cancers of the liver, rectum, colon, male lung, female lung, breast, childhood leukemia, adult leukemia, childhood brain, stomach and esophagus levels will decrease.
The more you reduce meat, dairy and processed foods in your diets and increase plant based foods the healthier you will be. This approach, combined with portion control, daily logging and group support is the CORE of long term weight loss success.
