Eating Habits That Will Increase Weight Loss

Published

on

Keeping your goals is important. Lots of things you may be eating, or not eating, can keep you from your weight loss goals and better nutrition. By changing a few simple habits, you can improve your health with minimal effort.

Eating more protein

Food-Protein

Getting more protein does two things: reduces your appetite and increases your metabolic rate. High-protein foods, such as eggs, beans and fish, help you to feel full for longer. Since protein takes energy to metabolize, you can burn far more calories in a day. In fact, a study showed that people who ate 30% of their calories as protein ate 441 fewer calories per day.

Staying away from added sugar

It’s definitely easier said than done. You may have traded your sodas for fruit juice, but it may not be doing you much good. Most fruit juices are merely sugary, fruit-flavored water-and-chemical mixes. Many fruit juices have similar sugar contents as their carbonated counter-parts.

Grabbing the natural stuff

Before you put packaged foods into your shopping cart, look at the label. You may think you’re being healthier by eating dried cranberries as a snack instead of a candy bar, but packaged foods often have additives that aren’t healthy at all. Get real cranberries. Freeze natural strawberries and put them in the refrigerator at work. All the colors of peppers aren’t just pretty, but they’re rich in fiber and other nutrients without the high calorie count.

Not counting calories

Different foods, different calories. Before you throw away those egg yolks in the morning, remember that it takes fewer calories from eggs to feel full than it does from a doughnut or bagel. Besides, eggs are full of nutrients, where doughnuts are full of sugar and refined flour. This makes doughnuts nutrients poor, and you’ll end up eating more calories just trying to be satisfied until lunch.
