How To Lose Weight and Stay ThinWritten by Kathy Guidry

WHY FAD DIETS DON’T WORK Fad diets don’t work because they’re not natural. The body works best when given a stable, consistent simple, whole food plan that one can repeatedly come back to. When you deprive body, it thinks it needs to slow system down to survive and store. The result is your metabolism slows down and you burn less fat. When you go off diet, body hungers to restore what it had felt deprived from, and sometimes you gain more fat. When you stay on a foundational diet of whole foods that cleanse and build, eating other things that are not so good for you (occasionally) will be easily processed and thrown out, without any effect on your weight. Are you ready to apply yourself to living and eating healthy so you can spend rest of your time pursuing dreams and desires of your heart? STARTING Starting is biggest step toward a change of eating. Consider that this beginning will have an outstanding effect on your whole life. When one changes one’s diet, one changes one’s life. The reason I believe this is true is your whole cellular structure is effected by what you put in your body. When you begin to eat food packed with nutrition, cells can do all that they were designed to do, and operate on a very high level of production. As they work for you to regenerate and rejuvenate your body, you feel better and think more clearly, in turn you become more creative and inspired by life. This will then motivate you to do things that are in your heart, and you will have energy and perseverance to do them. The result is one’s whole life changes. Ruts you weren’t able to get out of before are now little stumbling blocks that can easily be overcome. When one doesn’t feel good, and they don’t know why, it is very hard to do much of anything than what one needs to do to just live. Most people don’t even realize that they could just feel a whole lot better by simply making better choices when they eat. The Willing To Change Diet is a diet that comes from many years of experience and study of diet and nutrition. I have been to school for nutrition and for study of body systems i.e. circulatory, skeletal, nervous, and muscular systems. I have a B.S. in Psychology. I have read countless books on diet, health and nutrition, not to mention several fad diets. I have tried most of them to some extent. The only diet that I always come back to is this healthy, foundational diet of grains, vegetables and fruit, with many variations of added whole foods and lean meats. If you eat this way, you will maintain a healthy, perfect weight, never having to gain and lose again. You can “splurge” occasionally here and there, and if you come back to your foundational diet, it will not have a lasting effect on your body. As you begin to follow Willing To Change Diet, you will lose weight immediately. You will begin to feel more energy, think more clearly, have more creative energy, and have more inspiration to live. After two weeks, it will be easier to eat this way, and eventually benefits will outweigh effort of preparation. If you put in time now to care more about what you put in your body, you will spend less time later in Doctor’s office, or Hospital, or in bed with some kind of cold. Your quality of life will greatly improve. I know this to be true first hand. It all starts with a decision to change way you eat. Are you willing to change? This is not difficult; it just takes one decision…the decision to change. For more information: www.willingtochange.com

Feeling Tired? Can't Lose Weight? Tap Into Protein Power!Written by Kim Beardsmore

One of principle advantages of protein is that it creates a feeling of fullness and satisfaction in body that makes overeating much less likely. Besides being filling, protein is a smart addition to any weight loss or weight management programme because of effect it has on carbohydrate cravings.
As nutritional research has documented, carbohydrates trigger brain to crave more carbohydrates, leading to a cycle of carbohydrate eating that becomes hard to control. Protein can block that triggering effect in brain. If you eat protein with a carbohydrate it will reduce cravings caused by eating carbohydrate.
So where do you find sources of protein? Protein is found in dairy and meat products. For example, milk, cream, cheese, turkey, chicken, fish, beef, pork and lamb. You will quickly see these may be high in saturated fats so it is best to ensure you choose predominantly white meats such as fish, and white flesh of turkey and chicken.
Vegetable products are not normally high in complete proteins except for soya beans. If you have never tried soy products or you don't particularly enjoy tofu or soy milk, don't despair. There are may exciting and delicious products which can be eaten in a variety of ways. They are often low in cholesterol and low in calories and can make an excellent choice to control your hunger and provide energy that sustains which is particularl useful when trying to lose weight.
