Eating Healthy To Lose Weight: The Secret No One Wants To Believe
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

It might seem shocking, but you don’t really have to do a whole lot to lose your excess weight. You don’t have to go to the end of the world looking for some special berry with allegedly magic powers or cactus that will kill your hunger forever. You don’t have to scream and run from the room if someone brings in a single cupcake to split among ten people. You don’t have to strap dumbbells to your hands and hockey skates to your feet for ten hours a day. Are you ready for what you need to do? What “they” don’t want you to know is this: you have to start eating healthy to lose weight. Gasp, gasp, right?

Pick your jawbones back up off the floor people, and listen carefully. Eating healthy to lose weight is one of the simplest and most effective ways not only to get to a better weight overall but to keep from putting the weight you have lost back on. And there is more. You don’t have to give up all of your favorites all of the time. You can actually have chocolate, even a cupcake now and then. Yep, you can eat a whole cupcake, all by yourself.

Eating healthy to lose weight can start with simple changes. Look at what you eat now and think of how you can improve those foods either by how you make it or how you serve it. No more family style serving with everything at the table for instance. If you have to get up from the dining room table and walk back out to the kitchen, you might have second thoughts about that second helping. You should cook differently as well. Drop frying foods and look for healthier options like steaming, broiling and baking. An indoor grill is another healthy way of cooking that is still very flavorful.

Think about your colors as another way of eating healthy to lose weight. If you are not a vegetable fan, add more fruits to your diet and vice-versa. Try new and exciting, sometimes exotic items just for the chance to say that you did it- you might be shocked that you actually like some of this stuff. There are other foods that you can try as well including soy foods and vegetarian meat substitutes.

Eating healthy to lose weight should be something you do for the entire family. For those lucky family members that do not need to lose weight, add an extra portion or another food choice but for everyone else, if you are cooking and offering healthy foods, that is what they will be eating the majority of time. If you don’t cook unhealthy foods, they won’t get it nearly as often. Don’t worry about the foods they get outside of the home, as long as the kids and the spouse are getting healthy foods most of the time, they should be okay.

Get healthy eating habits and change your life today. At Strip That Fat you will be taught about healthy eating and exercise you can do for the long-term.
