Eat this not that and make a difference to your bottom line


Sometimes we need to take a step back and just be sensible and pragmatic about how we approach our weight loss efforts. Time and again we notice how small changes in our lifestyles can account for big and sustainable changes on the scales. We all know we need to follow a balanced diet, preferably cooked at home using only natural products. Great in theory…but in practice life happens.

In the real world many of us are running around like crazy all day, and very often simply do not have the time or the energy to prepare home-cooked meals. It is also just then when everything goes pear shaped. We choose from limited options, but make the right choices. Or so we think… The truth is that unless you’ve made it yourself, you simply do not know what ingredients have been used in restaurant food, take out foods, or even supermarket products. No wonder so many people, claiming to eat well, just keep on gaining weight.

It is for this reason I absolutely love the series of books “Eat This Not That” written by David Zinchenko, editor-in-chief of Men’s Health magazine, and Matt Goulding, the food and nutrition editor of Men’s Health. These books contain a wealth of information that comes in extremely handy when faced with everyday choices. They cover just about any situation, from food choices at restaurants and fast food outlets to supermarket foods. They are also specifically tailored to different audiences, including families and kids, so you can choose that which is most applicable to your lifestyle.

I would advise anyone seeking to lose weight to substitute the term ‘healthy weight loss program’ for ‘rapid weight loss program’. I hope, the following short discussion will explain my position to some extent.

You, like so many others in today’s society, are concerned about losing weight. Like so many others, you are looking for some sort of rapid weight loss program or plan. Rapid weight loss, also often referred to as quick weight loss or fast weight loss, involves, as its name implies, losing weight in a short period of time. Claims of such programs often cite fantastic results in anywhere from two to seven days.

In the United States, approximately two-thirds of the adult population is overweight or obese, and hundreds of thousands of these Americans are understandably interested in rapidly losing that unwanted weight. Many simply wish to lose weight before an important event, like an upcoming vacation or a wedding, while others are willing to accept the fact that permanent, healthy weight loss is a lifetime commitment.
