Diet for Weight Loss

Before coming to diet food, it is important to know diet. If we go through its Dictionary Definition, diet means a special course of food that is restricted to a health-conscious person, either to lose weight or for some medical exigencies.

Shedding some extra kilos is one of the most daunting tasks for the generation of today. It requires enormous will power, grit and disciplined mind. Doing the things that is right, and not what you like, is of course not simple. Staying away from the food that is irresistible is of course a big challenge.
But, if you keep on doing the things that you have been doing, you will keep on getting the things that you have been getting. Simply put, if you keep on binging on the foods that do not augur well for your body, you will keep on getting extra flab, sans any signs of improvement.

Given below are some secret tips for weight loss that need to be followed:

Take Balanced and Nutritious Diet: No matter whether you consume small or sumptuous food, the first and foremost thing that you need to take into consideration is that it must contain the food from all the food groups in the right proportion—vegetables, fruits, proteins and daily. You must eat nutritious and balanced diet.

Choose the Food that you Enjoy: Your diet should never be boring. It will be a prudent move for you, if you choose any regular food that you enjoy eating. Make your diet healthier. For example, if you enjoy Dosas, you can make it with some healthier ingredients, like oats.

Be Mindful of the Portion that you Eat: No matter what is the food that you choose, exercise strict control over the portion that you eat.

Your Calorie Intake should not Exceed 1200-1500 Calories per day: Just ensure that your calorie intake does not cross 1200-1500 calories. It will be nice if you stick to 3 meals of about 300-400 calories. You can also enjoy 3 mid-meal healthy snacks of around 100 calories. In order to track the calorie count of the food that you take, you can take help of online tools.

Take the Food of your Choice Once a Week: Take whatever food you fancy throughout the week, once in a week. The intake of that food will stop your cravings for those foods and at the same time, rev up your metabolism.

Include Exercise in your Routine: Along with dieting, include exercise of some form to ensure reduction of body weight. Working out for 30 minutes to 1 hour in a day will be a sagacious move. You may include some walking and some moderate exercises.

Never Skip Breakfast: Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and the most important component for weight loss. Apart, do not make your dinner, a midnight affair. Try to get your dinner by 8 p.m.

Say no to Oily, Fatty and Sugary Foods: Avoid these foods as much as you can. Apart from these foods, also avoid the processed food. Your food should contain low calorie and low carbohydrate foods. Include lots of fruits, salads, buttermilk in your meal and have healthy snacks so that you can stand aloof from junk food.
