Habits Of Successful Dieters
THE SIX HABITS OF SUCCESSFUL DIETERS
The sciency mumbo-jumbo behind losing fat is pretty straight forward. Structure your diet and exercise in a way that creates a calorie deficit and BOOM! Weight Loss.
However, there’s a whale of a difference between knowing how to lose weight and actually putting knowledge into practice… and that’s where most folks screw up big time!
Habits Of Successful Dieters
Most people know the truth about losing weight.
They know they need to eat fewer calories.
They know they need to eat more whole foods.
They know they need to exercise more.
Problem is, none of those things are sexy or exciting…
You know what is, though? A motha-flippin’ 28-Day Juice Fast! Or a 60-Day Low-Carb, Low-Fat, Low-Protein Lime & Lemon Juice Chugging Fast! (… okay, might have made that one up )
But you get the point. When folks get motivated to lose weight, they want results NOW, which often leads to making unrealistic and unsustainable changes to their diet & exercise plan that ultimately fail them…
The Successful Dieter is different ✅
The successful dieter knows it’s not about speed or going to the extremes. Rather, it’s about having patience and creating habits that last forever.
There are lots of great habits to develop, but these six are by far the most common ones I see successful dieters using. Reason being, they’re easy to implement and make dieting simpler.
And if there’s one thing I know to be true for losing weight, the simpler you can make your diet and exercise plan, the more likely you are to be successful in the long run
Do you know any good habits that could make this list? Let me know down below
Plant Based Diet Loss More Fat Than Ketosis Diet
THIS IS HUGE NEWS. This NIH funded study by some of the top nutritional scientists was perfectly designed. The theory behind ketosis diets is that they burn fat and the ketones make you not hungry. Ketosis proponents say that people on a plant based diet will get higher blood sugars and higher insulin which will cause fat gain and hunger.
To really study this they did what I would think impossible. They got 20 people to stay in the hospital for 28 days. They measured everything. The participants did 2 weeks on low fat plant based diet or 2 weeks low carb diet, then they crossed over for 2 wks on opposite diet. They were offered 2x the amount of food they needed daily and told to eat as much as they want. Food provided and kept macro’s stable with 15% protein in both groups.
Both groups had decreased blood sugars but, since they were eating high carb, had higher post prandial blood sugar and insulin as expected. Did that create fat and hunger? NO!! The plant based group lost more fat and ate less calories daily. Better satiety with the lower calorie density plant food.
Like I have emphasized many times, while the low carb group had low sugar because they weren’t eating sugar, when they did a glucose tolerance test the low carb keto group had worsening glucose tolerance! They also had higher LDL and a shift to bad LDL. Basically they were developing insulin resistance and possible metabolic disease.
Interesting, low carb had fast initial weight loss but this was due to water. They didn’t actually lose fat! May have lost some muscle as they did lose fat free mass. Meanwhile, like I have said many times, carbs do not turn to fat. The plant group ate much more carbs but lost more fat.
This is the most controlled head to head trial of ketosis vs plant based diet and the findings echo volumes of other studies. Calorie density works, insulin doesn’t make you fat, carbs don’t turn to fat, ketosis diets may contribute to insulin resistance and dyslipidemia.
Wellness habits you should adopt Eating more plants
Switching to a plant-based diet is one of the best things you can do for the planet as well as your health, mind, and body. A plant-based diet means that the majority of your plate should be made up of plants.
I think the only thing that all nutritionists can agree on is that Americans should be eating more fruits and vegetables. And, I’ve found that living a zero-waste lifestyle naturally lends itself to eating healthier.
When you’re shopping for food without any packaging you eliminate a lot of processed foods so you tend to gravitate towards a diet that’s focused on those fruits and veggies
THE CORRECT WAY OF COOKING NOODLES
*Please note: _The Institute Jantung Negara (IJN)_ has advised that we, Malaysians should not over eat instant noodles because the heart disease is mainly caused by the seasoning powder. If you cannot do without it, you must reduce the powder by half and do not drink the soup after you have finished eating the noodle.*
*DO NOT IGNORE THIS….. Especially those who are fond of eating instant noodles, such as Maggi, Cintan etc…..*
*THE CORRECT WAY OF COOKING NOODLES*
*The correct way to cook instant noodles without harming our bodies and health is as follows…..*
*Normally, when we cook the instant noodles we will put them into a pot with water, throw in the powder and let it cook for around 3 minutes and then it is ready to eat.*
*This is the WRONG method of cooking the instant noodles.*
*By doing this, when we boil the ingredients in the powder, normally with MSG, it will change the molecular structure of the MSG, causing it to be toxic.*
*The other thing that you may or may not realise is that, the noodles are coated with wax and it will take around 4 to 5 days for the body to excrete the wax after you have eaten the noodles.*
*_THE CORRECT WAY OF COOKING:*_
*1. Boil the noodles in a pot of water.*
*2. Once the noodles are cooked, take out the noodles, and throw away the water which contains wax.*
*3. Boil another pot of water, add the cooked noodles into the hot boiling water and then turn off the stove.*
*4. Only at this stage, when the stove is off, and while the water is still hot, add the flavouring powder into the water, to make noodle soup.*
*5. However, if you need dry noodles, remove the noodles and add the flavouring powder and toss it to get dry noodles.*
*If you buy plain Hakka noodles you initially need to boil them in the water. When they are cooked you discard the water.*
*This will soften the noodles, but to prevent it from sticking you need to add a tablespoon of oil. And also the noodles are deep fried partially to make them crunchy and then dusted with flour to prevent them from sticking while boiling. Hence, when you buy the noodles they are already made unhealthy. This is the type we use to make stir-fried noodles.*
*The regular Maggie or Cintan too is made the same way, plus they add MSG or Ajinomoto and other chemical preservetives.*
*A large number of patients, with ages ranging from 18-24 years are ending up with pancreatitis, either as a swelling or infection of the pancreas owing to regular or frequent consumption of instant noodles.*
*If the frequency is more than 3 times a week, then it is very hazardous…..*
