Want to lose weight and keep it off for good?
Nutritionists and dieticians all say you need a sustainable plan — one that takes into
account your body type and your lifestyle.
Your diet should be modified keeping in mind
the food you’ve been brought up on.
If you are used to rice and wheat as a staple, cutting it out completely may not be sustainable.
GET RID OF RESTRICTION:
There have to be allowances for favorite
foods and treats in order to avoid binges.
KEEP AN EYE ON EXERCISE:
It’s just as important as what you eat.
Physical activity of 150 minutes a week is recommended.
GO WHOLE GRAIN:
Choose whole grains and food that contain
fibers, this will fill you up quickly and ensure you are fuller for longer.
Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince
and dinner like a pauper.
Old clichés work!
GO TO BED:
Sleep well, or you’ll end up craving larger
Use healthy ways of cooking such as grilling,
boiling and steaming.
RAINBOW ON A PLATE:
Eat from different food groups (grains, proteins,
vegetables, fruits, and dairy ) so you get a range of micronutrients.
Try the ‘My Plate’ method published by USDA’s Center to get the portion sizes right.
