Healthy Weight Loss Diet
Begin right now by drinking a glass of water. Almost everyone can benefit from drinking more water. Your body uses water for moisture, to carry nutrients around the body, and to carry toxins and unwanted debris out. During weight loss, there is a need for extra water. Water helps your body cleanse itself. It is important to drink enough good clean water, whether dieting or not. An ample supply of good clean water for your body promotes health.
Eat Healthy Fresh FoodWeight loss programs tend to use off-the-shelf packaged foods. They may be lower in calories, but nutrition from healthy, fresh produce (live food) is missing. Below is meant to be a lifestyle type of diet. A diet based on fresh foods is always lower in calories, along with more balanced nutrition.
Healthy, fresh produce-based meal.Fresh produce washed and clean, is the best foundation for any diet, losing weight, or everyday life. A really good salad with a can of rinsed kidney beans dumped on it makes a satisfying meal. Sometimes it is nice to throw in a little pasta, or rice on the side for filler.
Salad SandwichA really good salad with flax wraps of multi-grain pocket bread is a good meal.
The idea here is to eat foods that are low in fat and potential waste. Foods higher in nutrients, good fat, lower calorie.
It is important to remember that fresh produce is a very healthy part of a meal. Along with enough water.
Whole grains in moderation.Whole grains contain protein, fiber, B vitamins, antioxidants, and minerals (iron, zinc, copper, and magnesium). Grains are higher in fat. Usually consumed as a form of bread or wrap, ok in moderation. Use judgment here. A little is good.
Nuts and seeds in moderation
Flax Seed: Nature's vegetarian source of Omega 3 fatty acids. Many seeds and nuts contain various oils, nutrients, and minerals other foods don't supply.
Essential Fatty Acids
Essential Fatty Acids are nutrients that the body needs for normal healthy function. A sufficient amount of EFAs must be consumed in a 'normal' diet to maintain good health. Sources of fatty acids are fish, flax seed, hemp seed, soya oil, canola oil, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, leafy vegetables, and walnuts.
A terrific food supplement, providing nutrition, enhancing flavor, and adding taste to your favorite meals and drinks. An excellent source of protein (52%), containing essential amino acids.
All natural protein with digestive health. An average eight-ounce serving of live and active culture contains about 20 percent of the Daily Value for protein. The USDA considers yogurt a meat alternative in its school meals program. Yogurt is a fermented milk product produced by bacterial fermentation of milk. The bacteria used to make yogurt are known as "yogurt cultures."
Meats and Fish
Everyone knows meat contains protein. Meat should not be overcooked. Enzymes in the protein are an important part of the nutrition process destroyed with heat.
