Fat Loss Diet Mistakes
Darren O Connell
There are always tiny mistakes we make when
it comes to eating and dieting is no different. However, these five diet
mistakes are reversible and unlikely to sabotage your diet completely if you
catch them early.
The first mistake dieters make is
drinking alcohol. While alcohol may not have any fat, it has empty calories,
which can ruin your caloric intake. Also, depending on the type of alcohol you
consume, you could be adding more sugar to your system than necessary. Extra
sugar means a blood sugar level spike, which can make you hungry. Extra sugar
also means that it will be converted to fat and stored within the body, exactly
opposite of what you are attempting to do. If you have to have alcohol, limit
how many you have and then go for a walk to burn the excess caloric intake.
Instead try to have herbal tea or water at mealtime, rather than a beer or
glass of wine. If you must have alcohol, chose a beverage like wine that has
more health benefits.
The second mistake is skipping
breakfast. Skipping breakfast slows your metabolism, so when you do finally
eat, your metabolism is so slow that it ends up storing the food in fat cells,
rather than consuming them. Fasting forces the body into survival mode, so it stores
whatever it receives. Try eating a smaller portion of oatmeal, or something
high in fiber. Just donít skip breakfast at all. Youíll start the day off on
the wrong foot.
When eating low or non-fat foods, that
label does not give you the liberty to eat as much as you possibly can. In
fact, eating too many low fat foods can cause you to gain weight, because of
the excessive caloric intake. People often confuse low fat and non-fat foods as
safe to eat in mass quantities, which is not the case. They still have
calories, which will cause weight gain. Instead try munching on some vegetables
or fruit. They are healthier for you anyway.
Enlarging your meals at fast food
restaurants is a diets worst friend. Not only is it a larger portion, but also
there are more calories and fat within larger sizes. Tendencies with larger
portions are to eat more before you realize how much you have consumed. If you
have to eat at a fast food restaurant, try splitting the food with someone, so
you limit you fat and caloric intake.
The last mistake people make is denial
that there is a problem at all. Ignoring your health and body will not make it
go away or get better. Be realistic with yourself. If your doctors consider you
overweight, chances are good that you are and if you respect yourself and your
health, you should take measures to reverse it. You donít always have to listen
to the scale, you can rely on measurements as a gauge for weight loss, but
ignoring your body and health is the worst mistake you can make.
Make sure to correct at least 3 of these
fat loss diet mistakes and your body would thank you by losing fat and giving
you the look you always aspired for. In addition, use a mix of aerobic exercise
and strength training to lose that stomach fat faster than you could have
