A HEALTHY DIET PLAN.....

posted Jul 16, 2012 17:25:59 by MsJojoAlwayskeepsitreal-SoBlessedDupree
A healthy diet plan is the first step for many people trying to start lose weight or to eat healthily. However, many people may find that finding the right diet would seem like a daunting undertaking. Even with the large variety of proven diets out in the internet, finding the one right for you may be difficult as our bodies all have different reactions to various different types of diets and a diet that work for someone else may not work for you.

Healthy diet plans to lose weight do not have to consist purely of tasteless, bland food that would make the worst airplane food look like ambrosia.
The most vital component of any diet plan and of any balanced diet is the moderation of all the food a human body would require. Thus, even an extreme diet plan where there are absolutely no carbohydrates would be healthier than a plan consisting purely of fruits or meat or even vegetables.

A nutritious but energy scarce diet would help you lower your weight and ensure that you stay healthy while doing so. Most of the people looking to lose weight by dieting are often consuming too much sugar, fat, oil or carbohydrates which are converted into body fat for their diet plan to work. Thus the most important food for you to avoid would be foods that are high in sugar, fat, oil or carbohydrates. Consuming Foods such as sweets, fried chicken or potatoes would potentially ruin your efforts to lose weight. Reducing the consumption of such foods and increasing the consumption of lighter foods such as fruits and vegetables would help you feel more satisfied after each meal; such foods also increase your intake of many vitamins and minerals often not present in other foods.

However, it is still possible to have meat in your diet plan. In fact, a hearty portion of meat could accompany many meals in a diet plan as protein takes longer to be digested by the human body. Thus eating meat would make you feel hunger less often as your body takes longer to digest it.

Before starting on your diet plan, you should know that a diet should help you lose weight without any side effects, and it is important that you consume a regular amount of food every day. Rapid weight loss could also affect your muscle mass, as some muscles would be broken down to provide extra energy to sustain your body. Thus it is important for you to think of losing weight as a bonus to your new healthy diet.

Low-carb or no-carb diets have been all the rage over the last decade. Yet according to experts, between 50 and 60 percent of your daily calories should come from carbohydrates. Complex carbohydrates like whole grains, fruits, and beans are great sources of fiber and essential for your health. It's the simple carbs — refined starches and sugars — that can lead to weight gain.

Many weight-loss programs emphasize the benefits of high-fiber foods, including legumes, whole grains, whole fruits, and veggies. Why the focus on fiber? Also known as “roughage,” fiber enables your body to function properly and fight disease — and it may even help keep you from overeating. High-fiber foods generally take longer to chew and digest, so you feel satisfied longer.

Thinking of going the vegetarian route or trying a high-protein diet? Before you make a dietary switch, it’s essential to understand the health effects of eating too little or too much protein. Too much protein — more than 35 percent of your total daily caloric intake — could promote osteoporosis; too little can reduce muscle mass, lower immunity, and weaken the heart.

Building meals and snacks around foods with a low glycemic load can make it easier to maintain your weight, keep blood sugar levels stable, and lower your risk of conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and even cancer. So how can you tell which foods have a low glycemic load? In general, the more fiber a food has, the lower the glycemic load. Think beans, fruits and vegetables, nuts, and whole-grains.
