Dieting Mistakes That Keep You Heavy

Dieting Mistakes That Keep You Heavy
By Guido Nussbaum

Many people tend to look for the right thing to do whenever it
comes to dieting and weight loss but in reality, it is actually
a matter of avoiding the things that don't work. If you added up
all of the different dieting mistakes that people make, it would
probably surprise you exactly how extreme they can be. Here are
some of the more common mistakes that you may run across, along
with the myth or two that you would want to avoid if you're
trying to lose weight effectively. I'm not saying that you
should not make any mistakes along the way, as that is how we
learn. What I am saying, however, is don't allow those mistakes
to sideline you and your weight loss efforts.

Perhaps one of the most common dieting mistakes that people
make is to cut something completely out of their diet. The world
is full of fad diets which include such things as low
carbohydrate, low-fat and low protein. Many of these diets may
be able to help you lose weight temporarily but they are not
something that you're going to be able to stick to for the long
term. Rather, you will end up giving up out of frustration
eventually and you will simply gain weight back.

Your body needs all three things in order to function properly:
carbohydrates, protein and fats. It is getting these things in
their proper measure and proper proportion that is really going
to make a difference in whether you're successful at keeping
your weight off permanently. Choose good fats instead of bad
fats and make sure that you are eating carbohydrates that are
low on the glycemic index. This is how you make a difference in
the amount of weight that you are carrying around and they are
lifestyle changes that will stick with you.

Another common dieting mistake is thinking that it is only a
matter of calories in, calories out. At the end of the day, it
is true that a calorie is just a calorie but you want to make
sure that you are giving your body what it needs in the calories
that you are eating. A 2000 calorie per day diet of chocolate
cake is going to make you an unhealthy individual, although you
may end up losing weight whenever you are doing so. Eating
plenty of raw fruits and vegetables will give you the
nourishment that you need without blowing your calorie intake
throughout the day.

Finally, always make sure that you are staying as hydrated as
possible as this will really help you in your weight loss
efforts. Ignore the sports drinks, which is one of those dieting
mistakes that people tend to make regularly. Sports drinks are
not only full of sugar, they are devoid of anything healthy for
you because they have been pasteurized before they are
modulated. Nothing is going to give your body what it needs more
than pure water, so make sure that you are getting your fill
every day.
