Steve’s Diet Plan that Works
Are you seeking a diet plan that actually works? I hope you have come to the right place. Many people in North America are overweight, to put it politely. There are thousands of articles claiming to be one of the most effective diets. There are also many products and supplements for sale, promising an easy way to lose weight.
Having tried unsuccessfully, too many of them myself, I have finally determined what works for me. Hopefully it will work for you as well. The information in this posting describes a diet that works fast, a diet that really works. This is even a diet plan that actually works if you cheat, because it automatically puts your diet plan back on tract every morning.
Steve’s Proven Basic Diet Principles
* Sugar is toxic and possibly poison, especially in a refined or processed form.
* Dieters should avoid processed foods; margarine, white flour and sugars.
* Some foods, when mixed, make it impossible to succeed at any diet program.
* You can lose more weight eating four simple meals per day.
* No white at night, a simple guideline to success.
* A program of light walking, 30 minutes per day, doubles effective weight loss.
Elimination of Sugar – A Key Part of a Diet Plan that Works
The easiest way to lose weight is to cut sugar from your diet. If you have trouble identifying foods with sugar, try this simple plan. Eat no foods that are white or have any type of sugar ingredient. That means no corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, or have a finished product white appearance. If you find ingredients you do not understand, cannot read, or unfamiliar with, on the food label when shopping, avoid those foods. Sugar hides under many names.
Avoiding processed Foods
Any diet program should start with a 12 hour, overnight fast where only water is consumed between the hours of 7pm and 7am the next morning. This allows your stomach to empty itself. This gives you a base line for eating foods in the correct combination.
Don’t Mix Foods that Fight
Never mix foods containing protein with foods containing carbohydrates or sugars. Protein, fats and carbohydrates should be eaten in limited amounts. Non starchy vegetables can be eaten in any volume and with either protein foods or carbohydrate foods. Fruits should only be eaten by themselves as a separate meal.
If your last meal of the day will end after 6 p.m., make sure that meal is either all protein and vegetable, or all carbohydrate and vegetable. No white, starchy or sugary food should ever be eaten after 7p.m. This helps clear out your stomach for a fresh dietary start the next morning.
Until you reach your desired weight, drink only pure, unflavored, unsweetened water. No alcohol, no caffeine of any type and no fruit drinks containing added sugar.
Eat four smaller meals than three larger meals. Avoid having any one meal be very large in volume or caloric intake. Try to have at least three hours between the start of each meal. Try to have your last meal end by 7 p.m. if possible.
My results with this plan have been an average loss of 5 pounds every three weeks. I could have done better but circumstances, and less than strong dieting will power, held back my results. Never the less since this plan is one that instills a lifestyle change, this diet plan that actually works rarely has a period of return to extended periods of weight gain.
If you try this plan, you should let your doctor know. Much of this plan is the collection of advice from my care providers. Please leave comments with your own results, so that others may be more likely to believe in this diet, based on good diet principles and one of the most effective diets for weight loss.
