Nutrition Diets and Weight Los

Often we miss the mark and do not achieve the desired weight loss. We reflect and analyze the foods we have consumed or not consumed, and note our increased levels of activity to be discouraged from resuming our attempts. Inheritance, setpoint theory, sex hormones and stress hormones may be our explanation for failed attempts at healthy nutrition.

While there are many causal factors involved in nutrition, most are synergistic and individual. By that I mean that you can not just look at one factor in weight loss. As Berry Sears, author of The Zone, Sears, says, “Diets are like a religion, everyone thinks they have the right one.” We may view scientific studies and use the data and facts we believe to be true to facilitate our efforts. For example, studies show that the best time to exercise is when insulin is lowest and glucagon is highest. In most cases this is within an hour of waking up. “This will set the body’s fat burning thermostat in motion for the day … actually 200% more efficient during exercise at this time”. Another fact is that fat “preferably monounsaturated fats like avocado, coconut, olive oil etc.” Combined with a carbohydrate slows the rate at which glucose in the bloodstream increases and also produces satiety, so that no hunger arises.

I could go on with the facts. But I would rather discuss something so basic, but necessary, that the absence of it can be detrimental to the noble attempt to lose weight and eat healthily.

You can do everything right except for the one factor that prevents the needle on the scale from going to the left, or the upper part of the pants being closed with a zipper because the measuring tape does not move. Do you follow all the rules but have “selective exceptions”?

Take, for example, a “trigger food”. Everyone has a different one. In general, women prefer the taste of sweet foods, while men prefer salty and fatty foods. Therefore, many women may find chocolates as trigger food. Men may find potato chips as “trigger foods”.

Trigger food is by my definition a consumable substance that, when consumed by most people in small amounts, does not cause a significant lack of nutrients for weight loss. However, if some people continue to desire to consume more amounts of this nutrient, be it fat, carbohydrate, protein or a combination thereof, this will in many cases divert the person and actually cause the opposite desired weight gain and adversely affect their effect Diet Diet.

In the simplest sense, some people have food that they just can not eat a bit. Who can eat and stop only 10 M & M’s? Some people find that satisfying. But there are people who find this causes food, which then causes them to spiral downwards when forced to dive into their M & M bags. Ups and 3 pounds M & M’s are gone! Forget the 1 hour 5 / day per week walks or the good diet of the last few days. For now, everything the M & M addict can think of is M & M, period. “A special rule” and exception to the diet “M & M’s are awarded!” You can replace M & M’s with everything except ice cream, nachos, French fries, etc.

Can you see how Trigger Point Food negates all attempts to lose body fat? Forget the health benefits that are not achieved.

My advice to you is that you need to develop a personal mantra: “I’m only ____ pounds or inches off my target if I eliminate the habit of eating or drinking. It’s so easy,” I hold off my goal by keeping it in my life. ”

Next, I suggest you do not try it at all. It seemed easier to give up the substance, take it out of the fridge, leave it to yourself and get it out of the house! When your thoughts become aware that you do not have it, train your mind to redirect your thoughts and do something proactive and productive, like walking, reading a book that you want to read, with your animals or Playing with children, making a phone call, etc. In ten minutes you have resisted the urge and are pleased with your determination to stay on the path to a healthy diet.

While the concept of “trigger food” is simple, it is often underestimated to play the role of saboteur for body fat / weight loss. It is often not identified because one of the two denies eating such large quantities. We need to bring our consciousness to the fore and honestly identify this personal enemy so that we can develop a strategy to ensure the pursuit of a healthy diet.

Disclaimer: Not everyone has this problem. However, a large majority of those who fail in these attempts often overlook the “trigger factor” and attribute these attempts to something more “complicated”. Just hold it … just try it. Stay away from the trigger food for a week, continue all other efforts towards your goal and see if it’s that easy. If this is your obstacle, you can easily eliminate this food from your diet as your confidence increases as you lose weight and opt for the optimal diet.
