The Best Diet To Lose Weight - 3 Step Plan

What is the best diet that can help you lose weight quickly and easily without spoiling your health? When people want to lose weight, most of them try to starve themselves and skip meals thinking it will make them slim in a matter of days. But they will usually end up frustrated because weight loss just doesn't happen like that. Starving your body is the least effective way to shed pounds. Moreover, even if you manage to lose some weight, it will not last long.For how many days do you think you can continue to eat less? Even if you have strong will power you may not be able to continue like this for more than a couple of weeks. What do you think will happen after that? If you get back to your old eating habits, don't you think the weight will eventually come back? A lot of dieters have experienced this. What is worse is that the weight will usually come back with a vengeance, causing the dieters to become more overweight than they were before.What then is a better approach to losing weight? I suggest a 3 step strategy which can be far more effective for healthier, long-lasting results. The steps are as follows:1. Reduce Sugar and Starches2. Eat More Proteins & Vegetables3. Exercise 3-5 Times Per Week1. Reducing Sugar and Starches - This is one of the most important steps in your diet plan. The starches (carbs) and sugars are the foods which stimulate secretion of insulin, which is the main fat storage hormone in the body. When insulin levels are lowered, your body can lose weight more easily. Another benefit of lower insulin levels is that kidneys will shed excess sodium and water from the body. So, reducing sugar and starches from your diet will lower your insulin levels, suppress your appetite and help you lose weight naturally.

2. Eat More Proteins & Vegetables - Try to include at least one protein source at each of your meals. You should also include a source of low-carb vegetables at each meal. You can eat lots of low-carb vegetables without the risk of gaining weight. Some of the low-carb vegetables are cucumber, spinach, broccoli, lettuce. Protein sources include meat, sea food, eggs etc.When you are eating low-carb diet, you should include a fat source too in your meals. Trying to do low-carb and low-fat dieting at the same time can make you feel miserable and lead to failure. Do not be afraid of eating fat in moderate quantities when you are on a low-carb diet. Olive oil, coconut oil, butter are a few good sources of fat.3. Exercising - Any healthy weight loss plan is incomplete without exercise. You don't need to do intense workouts but need to do some sort of physical activity on regular basis. Lifting weights can be good but if you don't like it there are many other options for you. Brisk walking for 30 minutes a day, swimming and cycling are very good exercise options too. If you don't want to do it daily, at least do 30-45 minute workouts 3 times per week.
