Why do you eat what you eat? Is it because you’ve been raised by parents eating a specific food, do you eat as you do because it’s socially acceptable, is it because your money stretches that bit further than most and you have a taste for the takeaway food daily?
When the time comes around to set the table and knockback your favourite munch you may be under the illusion that the size of the pie is what counts i.e. the more you eat the worse-off you’ll be when you step on the scales. And in reality how much you eat of can have negative effects on how you feel about yourself, what the scale says and so on, but what you put into your body should be the first thing you think about.
To live we need to eat and drink, if you’re planning to lose weight you may be tempted to cut food out and just drink. Maybe a friend told you about a diet that he knows will work if you just ‘’trust the process.’’ In reality, you’ll find it very hard not to lose weight on any of the diets out there because the deciding factor comes down to how much energy you use up. The less food you eat and the more active you do the more weight you’ll lose. Another important thing to remember is that reducing your food shouldn’t mean totally avoiding food groups (Carbs, Protein & Fats) since they all have a role to play in our bodies. So here are the essentials of a good, nutritionally balanced diet.
