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
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.
