Do You Hate the Idea of Dieting?

Do You Hate the Idea of Dieting?

Over the years, I have tried various diets and they all had one common attribute which was that they did not allow for maintenance once you reached your desired goal..

In other words, once I reached my goals, I was more than ready to stop dieting and start eating like a normal person again.

I suppose that I could have continued spending hours preparing meals, portioning, and weighing every morsel like a lab experiment gone wild, but by the time I had reached my desired weight, I was tired of the routine, and wanted to eat foods I enjoyed without all the hassle.

Over the years, I have tried various diets and they all had one common attribute which was that they did not allow for maintenance once you reached your desired goal..

In other words, once I reached my goals, I was more than ready to stop dieting and start eating like a normal person again.

I suppose that I could have continued spending hours preparing meals, portioning, and weighing every morsel like a lab experiment gone wild, but by the time I had reached my desired weight, I was tired of the routine, and wanted to eat foods I enjoyed without all the hassle.

I live a busy life, and I wanted a hassle-free eating plan that didn’t leave me feeling like I was eating cardboard at every meal.

Unfortunately, that same attitude is exactly why I got fat in the first place.

So I decided to design a low-maintenance eating program, with
low-maintenance foods, and low maintenance recipes.

It is really easy to see why today’s diets are designed for the short term. We all want answers that are fast, easy, and cheap.

But, we want to get in shape and stay that way for a lifetime.

So, why do we go to all the trouble of getting rid of our excess fat with ridiculous diets, all the while knowing that soon, we will start eating the very same garbage that got us fat in the first place?

Because we all believe that we are in control. Sadly, we will only be in control if we eat the proper foods that force our bodies to focus on burning fat.

If we are consistent about eating the right foods, we will take the fat off, and keep it off forever.

I want to eat foods that I enjoy but I also want to burn fat.

So here is a list of foods that I believe will do just that:

Carbohydrates:
1. Oatmeal
2. Yams/Sweet Potatoes
3. Brown Rice
4. Whole Grain Breads
5. Whole Wheat Pasta
6. Black Beans
7. Pinto Beans
8. Navy Beans
9. Kidney Beans
10. Tofu

Vegetables:
1. Broccoli
2. Spinach
3. Romaine Lettuce
4. Asparagus
5. Mushrooms
6. Onions
7. Cucumbers
8. Celery
9. Carrots
10. Squash

Lean Protein:
1. Egg whites
2. Skinless Chicken Breast
3. Skinless Turkey Breast
4. Whole Eggs
5. Flank Steak
6. White Fish (Snapper, Cod, Tilapia)
7. 95% Lean Ground Sirloin
8. Pork Loin (fat trimmed)
9. Turkey Bacon/Sausage
10. Veggie-burgers

Fruit:
1. Grapefruit
2. Apples
3. Oranges
4. Cantaloupe
5. Pineapple
6. Blueberries
7. Bananas
8. Peaches
9. Grapes
10. Strawberries

Another important thing to note is that I believe it is essential to include healthy fats like olive oil, almonds, walnuts, flaxseed, and avocado in your diet, but use them sparingly.
If you want to eat dairy, only eat diary made from skim milk such as non fat cottage cheese, non fat yogurt, and other non fat cheeses. Just remember to be aware when eating diary, a little is more than enough, so try to limit the amounts you eat so that you don’t exceed your caloric intake limits for fat loss.
