Good morning everybody.  As we grow old, we love to eat everything.  Even if we don’t feel hungry, we eat a lot.  The metabolism of an adult person gets slow.  Even they eat many, they will not feel full for some time.  That’s why most of adults were all fat. An article written by Joan Sumpio says that ..”You are What You Eat.”  This simply means that your physical looks tell you that  how much you eat.

As obesity and over-weight issues take their toll on people, many are seriously considering to go on a diet that will help them have slimmer bodies. Others are not necessarily getting into very rigid programs but are simply adopting a three-times-a-day diet plan, meaning no snacks in between main meals to cut off calorie intake. But snacking isn’t really bad at all. In fact, mini meals several times a day can help manage hunger and reduce bingeing. Eating healthy foods for snacks like low fat cracker and fruits may stop you from taking second or third servings at your next meal, dramatically cutting main meal calories. The key to incorporating snacks into your weight-loss program is to plan them with variety, moderation, and balance in mind. Here are some of the best snack picks:

•Breads or crackers made with whole grains. These foods are beneficial because foods made with whole grains have all the important nutrients of the entire grain seeds. They have fiber, thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), folate, iron, magnesium, and selenium. In looking for foods with whole grains, you can look for any of the following in the ingredient lists: Amaranth, Barley, Buckwheat, Corn, Millet, Oats, Quinoa, Brown Rice, Rye, Sorghum, Teff, Triticale, and Wheat.

More than burning calories

Effective weight loss is more than knowing how to burn and how to count calories.  There are a lot of people who have memorized calorie counts of foods and have bought all the necessary exercise gadgets to monitor calories and exercise performance, but still find it hard to maintain weight.

If you still have unresolved personal issues which might trigger overeating, then there’s a greater chance that you can break your diet plans or discontinue your exercise program because you are not prepared for such circumstances.

Identify the triggers for over-eating or lack of exercise. Write a journal of your food intake, physical activities and even sleep. At the end of the day or week, analyze why you did not follow your food plan. It might be due to stress from work, conflict with your husband or low self-esteem.

The best weight-loss strategy is usually the cheapest one.  Resorting to surgery, liposuction and diet pills can surely make you lose weight, but the real issue is maintaining your weight-loss results long term.  Try not to attribute real weight-loss success to unnatural strategies because the worst thing that can happen is you will be dependent on those.

You are the best person to end your weight loss problems. If you believe that you can lose weight through attitude and behavior change, then you’ve already taken the initial step to long-term weight management.
