Fill Your Boots! - how to eat on a diet rule 1

Eat until you are satisfied.Don't starve yourself. The reason so many people fail in traditional diets is because they are so hard. How can you be expected to starve yourself for any length of time? It's almost impossible. Your body slows right down in an effort to save all the calories when you do this. Any starvation method is often counterproductive.

Eat until you are satisfied and your body's metabolism keeps running at a good pace. People have gotten so confused about this because of what they see in the newspapers and magazines. All the pills and potions, teas and coffee's, meal replacements, fad diets, starvation regimes are nothing but marketing gimmicks. The don't work. They involve doing unnatural things and most importantly set out no plan for long term. 99% of people fail using these products.

Get Healthy! - how to eat on a diet rule 2

When you eat good healthy food you will be surprised how much you can eat and still lose weight. You will be able to eat until you are completely full and you will still lose weight The only real way to eat on a diet is to eat for long term health. Take your focus away from your weight, start to eat for good health and you will be amazed what happens.

Put Out The Processed! - how to eat on a diet rule 3

Our lovely food manufacturers have stuffed our food with flavour enhancers, preservatives, extra salt , extra sugar and many terrible things. This prepackaged, processed garbage masquerading as food is extremely unhealthy and eating it reduces your body's ability to deal with metabolizing any excess fat. So leave it alone.

See you later Sugar - how to eat on a diet rule 4

Hard for some of you I know. But this is a must. Sugar in foods is the main cause of weight gain. Sugar affects a hormone called insulin which makes us lay down fat in our bodies. Sugar is lurking in all sorts of unexpected places. If you avoid processed and pre-made meals you have gone a long way to eliminating them. The next step is to avoid bread, pasta, potatoes, and rice. All of those are just sugar by the time they enter your blood.

Go Natural! - how to eat on a diet rule 5

I don't mean go naked! I mean eat all nature's beautiful natural food. Lots of fruit and vegetables, lean cuts of meat, seafood, eggs, fish etc. If you are focusing on rule 2 (health) you will naturally gravitate to these foods. You know what is good for you. Just eat it and lots of it too!

Water, Water Everywhere! - how to eat on a diet Rule 6 (ok there's one more rule ;-))

Drink lots and lots of water. At least one pint with every meal and a pint between each meal also. Water helps in the breaking down of fat in your body. So drinking it is actually helping you lose weight. Many of us are actually very dehydrated without realising it. You will find that when you drink more water you start to feel more alert and have more energy. Drinking five pints of water a day will have the vanity satisfying added benefit of making your skin look much younger within a month.

Follow these rules and you can a have a life time free from diets. I really hope they help you.
