Let’s clear up the mystery surrounding dieting.  Just so you know, if you stop eating your body will start to break down accumulated fat reserves but will also start to feed from your muscles.  This will make your body not only less heavy but less firm and tight due to the loss of lean muscle tissue.  You do not want that, right?  Follow the advice written here to learn how to reach that dream figure.

The big question is not “what to eat” but “how and when to eat”.  Small, regular and diverse meals in combination with some sport activity should suffice.  Eat four or five times a day to bate any sense of hunger, general weakness and other unpleasant sensations.  Our body has a need for various nutrients and it is a mistake to throw away key macronutrients from our menu.  This can do more harm than good.

Consider the following list to give you an idea of what to include in your daily menu.

Oatmeal

Many nutritionists suggest having a half cup of oats porridge every day.  This will energize you for an extended period of time more than any other cereal based breakfast.  The fiber in oatmeal will also leave you with a sense of fullness.

Small berries

Red berries, blueberries and strawberries are low in fats and rich in fibre.  They also contain antioxidants, vitamin C and potassium.

Nuts

Most people are afraid to eat nuts because of the fats.  The truth is, as long as you don’t eat too much  you don’t have to worry about putting on weight.  You will also benefit from the protein and vitamin E that they contain as well.

Milk and diary

Milk, yoghurt, white cheese and yellow cheese are full of calcium and vitamin D.  This helps to strengthen bones and increase lean muscle tissue.

Final Thoughts

Remember to pay attention to the quality of foods that you eat.  Diversity is also key.  Be careful not to overexert yourself during exercise.
