Help! Which Diet to follow, High Protein or Low Carb?Written by (c) Anna “Overweight? NO MORE!”
Continued from page 1
Therefore, our individual challenge is to choose a healthy diet after having done a thorough reading. Above all, it is necessary to understand how our bodies function and to select right foods to win battle against obesity. Junk foods are just that … junk food, without nutritional value and mostly high in calories. However, I prefer not to call it “diet,” but a healthy decision to eat healthy.
Hence, it is up to us to decide which diet will work better for us. On one hand, we feel vulnerable by insane bombardment of diet propaganda and not knowing which one to trust, while on other hand, we think we found right diet based on their propaganda, but end up disappointed. Consequently, my advice is to research different programs and see how they will benefit your weight loss goal, not other way around.
The most important thing is to eat healthy and in moderation, as well as drink a lot of water to keep our bodies hydrated, exercise at least 3 times a week, and have your nutritional supplements. Avoid excess of saturated fats, use oils containing healthy fat, such as olive oil and canola oil. Over processed food, mostly sugary products, is not a good companion to keep weight off.
Bottom line, whatever diet is working for you, stick to it. Just remember your goal is to keep weight off in long-term -- not for just a short-term. Remember you are not alone; there are many people trying to lose weight and helping each other is most valuable tool. Others have lost weight and kept weight off. I did it, so can you! Believe in yourself, you are special.
In meantime, just as my nephew Nadeem told me, “What did fast tomato tell slow tomato? KETCHUP!“ Hence, I will KETCH you UP in next article. Right now, I am going to exercise in elliptical for 35 minutes. Your commitment is also my commitment, “Official! Overweight? NO MORE!” We can do it!

Second: thousand of Americans suffer with some sort of assimilation problem, digestive problems or food allergies. Stomach settlers, or anti-acid medications are one of highest on popularity list in U.S. Some of common complaints are acid reflux, gas and bloating, loss of energy, being overweight ,being underweight, getting hungry soon after eating, frequent digestive problems, elimination difficulty, food allergies and cravings.
Third: It is currently recognized that a significant portion of American population is allergic to gluten in wheat. Webster’s Dictionary defines gluten as a tenacious, elastic protein substance esp. of wheat flour that gives cohesiveness to dough. Additional gluten is sometimes added for extra rise in breads. The adverse reaction to gluten in body comes from body’s inability to digest this substance. The undigested gluten forms a sticky, acidic protein paste which lines small intestines, blocking nutrient receptor sites. Nutrients are lost because receptor sites, through which nutrients are accepted into bloodstream for distribution to cells, are blocked. Especially serious is blocking of minerals which feed glands of body and glands run body. Calcium is a key controller of alkalinity of body. In most cases there are no symptoms until body is in serious trouble, and then person is craving very food that is destroying his digestive tract. There is no medical solution to a mal-absorption issue and therefore, is dietary in nature.
Would you be surprised to find out that very root of your personal dietary dilemma may be indicated through your blood type, your genetic diseases and nationalities that you do not properly digest gluten?
A body receiving proper nutrition and proper cleansing will balance itself at its ideal weight for health. A person who is adequately fed will be free of cravings, energetic, clear headed and healthy.
