10 Pitfalls Of Any Diet Plans for Weight Loss

Who has not faced this problem: you use a diet plans for weight loss, deny oneself, but those extra pounds have no intention to leave! .. What is the reason?

It turns out that there are "pitfalls" which we are unaware.

1. Sweetener. Many people think that artificial sweeteners do not contain calories, and generously add them to the food and drinks. It’s vain. Sweetener in large quantities is even very high in calories.

2. Vegetables. It seems, what might be a harm on the best dietary products. On caloric content – there’s no harm. But almost all the vegetables and herbs contain pesticides - and it negatively affect on your metabolism. Wash greens and vegetables under running water.

3. Low-calorie foods. It is easy to fall for the bait to see the words "low-fat" or "fat-free" on the packaging. Eating such foods, we often overeat in quantity, as a feeling of fullness, such as low-fat yogurt, is later than of the same product containing a small percentage of fat. And such delicacies as low-calorie cake - is pure self-deception for those who are on a diet. However, if you can't keep yourself from cake, it's the best way to eat a slice of low calorie's content in your diet plans for weight loss.

4. Stress. It is another obstacle on the weight loss path. Stress produces the hormone cortisol ("stress hormone"), which promotes accumulation of body fat, especially around the abdomen and thighs.

5. Fatigue. Also inhibits the metabolism. Try to go to bed at the same time and sleep at least 8 hours.

6. Irregular meals. Over the next 2 hours after the meal the metabolism increases on 25-30%. And if you eat when you need, skipping lunch or dinner, you are depriving your body of such a possibility. Refusal to breakfast slows your metabolism on 5%.

7. Juices. On the one hand, freshly squeezed juices - a storehouse of vitamins for the body, on the other - they stimulate appetite. If you're on a diet plans for weight loss, it is better to eat whole fruits for a day and drink herbal tea. Drink juice (not from the package) in the morning for breakfast.

8. Fast-food. If you must snack, such as "McDonald's" - eat a salad without refueling. "Caesar" salad, dressed with sauce, exceeds the chicken sandwich caloric.

9. Dark bread. It believed that white bread has high-calorie, and dark - not very. This is not true: majority of dark bread made from refined flour (as white). Choose grain or whole meal bread - it contain the "long" carbohydrates. On their digestion the body expends a lot of energy.

10. Canned and semi-finished products. Forget about them. Preservatives contained in such foods, prevent weight loss. This does not apply to frozen foods - they can safely be included to the diet plans for weight loss.

Avoid the pitfalls in your diet plan and do not forget to walk and exercise at least 30 minutes a day. This is the keys to your success in weight loss!
