Eat Healthy Foods and Lose Weight

 

Eating Healthy Foods = Weight loss when desired

Eating healthy foods is a no-brainer, yet statistics clearly show the increase of obesity resulting in subsequent increases in heart disease, diabetes, strokes and a huge array of cancers. Make no mistake, these are the direct result of years of eating unhealthy foods plus eating more than we can burn up. Americans in particular are well known for the consumption of extra large portions and their population has one of the world’s biggest obesity problems.

What are the unhealthy foods

Sugar the silent killer

Sugar the silent killer

Unhealthy foods are those that are highly refined package products found in abundance in our supermarkets. They include desserts, pies, ready made meals, buns, cakes, processed cheeses, margarine and butter and many more. Products made with white flour, breakfast sugar coated cereals, soft drinks (excluding diet drinks), corn oil, excessive use of salt, to name a few. Of them all, Sugar is by far the worst. It’s in over 70% of supermarket food items, including very high levels in most soft drinks

Healthy foods can be frozen or fresh vegetables, raw fresh fruit, fish, olive oil, avocado oil, nuts, herbs, spices, filtered water, to name a tiny few. Eating unhealthy food as opposed to wholesome healthy foods, can be largely blamed on parents failing to teach their children by not providing a good healthy diet and allowing so much sugar in their food. However, in fairness to the  parents – schools, governments, and food manufacturers have to take much of the blame for the levels of obesity-related diseases in our society today. Schools for failing to control the foods that are eaten in school grounds and for not educating the youngest of the children; Governments for failing to bring in legislation controlling levels of sugar, salt and corn oil in foods; and manufacturers for failing to use healthier alternatives to the ingredients they use.  

How to lose weight

As already mentioned,  over-eat and you will get fat. Weight affects not only how you look but, all too often, how long you will live and, most importantly, the quality of your life. The way to lose weight is simple – eat less calories/kilos/joules than you burn up in energy. Try eating off a smaller plate than normal and avoid all those bad foods mentioned above; eat lots of greens and colored vegetables, fish, chicken (without skin) and cut back on potatoes; avoid white bread, eat no more than two slices of multi-grain bread per day, eat a minimum of cheese, avoid cream, drink lots of water. Read my book.

This morning  I had my post op clearance for an operation I had last month to clear a blocked carotid artery. In the waiting room was an overweight mother feeding a one year old baby some junk food. The thought crossed my mind about this child’s chance of being overweight by the time it was old enough to attend school and its potential to develop diabetes as a result.

Part of my mission statement is

“to promote healthy foods for healthy bodies”.

Before I changed professions from an active managerial role in the building industry to an online researcher of healthy foods and healthy lifestyle, I thought I was in control of my body. How very wrong I was. Back then I ate junk food on the run- particular weaknesses being potato crisps and,  between meals, sweet biscuits. The weight, of course, went on and health problems developed, including stress and finally diagnosed as pre-diabetic.

Fortunately, I came across an international health study being conducted by the  medical departments of universities in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

Since being involved in that study, which is to last three years, I am no longer pre-diabetic and have reduced my weight by 13 kg. My maintenance diet is now high protein with a controlled exercise regime that will cut my weight further.

Eating that junk food took its toll. The blocked  artery, over weight and becoming pre-diabetic ( stage one of becoming true diabetic) was not looking good for a healthy future had I continued along the same path.

The main purpose of this blog is to show people a way to a better lifestyle by warning of the dangers of certain foods and the benefits of good wholesome healthy foods with moderate regular exercise. Because I enjoy cooking I have taken it a stage further by developing recipes that not only taste great but have many health benefits.

My first cookbook was called How to Cook Healthy Meals in Minutes and it is available on Amazon as a download to your computer or Kindle device. Also you can find healthy foods that taste great on pages of these sites:  Cooking Healthy meals for the Family  Cooking Wonderful Food  10 Healthiest Foods
