Submitted by on October 16, 2009 – 3:52 amNo Comment



You might be familiar with the saying that every rule has an exception; yeah… there are lots of good and healthy advices out there, but do you know that sticking too much to them can end you up leading nowhere as mind gets frustrated after a hectic period of diet and ultimately ends in hidden indulgences. For instance: for losing of oodles of weight, you might abandon chocolate, however following too much of dieting plans strictly, may lead you gorging entire chocolate cake alone one night.

Therefore, if you are looking ahead for losing weight, then the perfect key is moderation as is personalization. Tara Gidus, RD, an Orlando-based nutritionist suggests “There’s no one-sizefits- all diet plan.” Experts are of the view that good nutrition and exercising are some healthy habits that can help in slimming down, but apart from this, there is always space for minor alterations. As Rena Wing, Phd, Co-Founder of the National Weight Control Registry recommends “It’s important to try different approaches and see what works for you.” This advice is actually based on truth, at the same time it is tentative and might perhaps boomerang. Therefore, I am there to help you in finding the perfect key for getting on the correct path; I will help you figure out which tried and tested rule suits you perfectly and which ones might reverse your endeavors.

  • Fill Up on Whole Grains

Positive traits: Whole grains such as whole wheat bread, brown rice and whole grain pasta are loaded with fiber, therefore it is this quality that keeps you stiff, robust and feel fuller the whole day.

Negative traits: Only because a food is enriched with whole grains doesn’t mean that you have to gorge up oodles of amount, especially when the food says that it is fiber-rich, it doesn’t always signify that it is healthy like in case of cookies and sugary cereals. Therefore, before you pick up anything that are healthy sources of whole grain, then read between the lines as they should mention the following as first and second ingredients- whole wheat flour, Whole rye, Brown rice, and Whole oats.

Caution: scan the labels meticulously, watch portions, and don’t forget that a calorie is still a calorie.

  • Stick with Home-Cooked Meals

Positive traits: Nancy Synderman, MD, and author of ‘Diet Myths That Keep us Fat’ says that “If you’ve made it yourself, “you know exactly what ingredients are being used and how much.” This is an effective way as your health cannot be dilapidated by hidden oils and butter that are provided in restaurants.

Negative traits: Home-made food is not always healthy. According to researchers of Cornell University “the average calorie count of recipes appearing in all editions of The Joy of Cooking jumped 63 percent since the book was first commercially published in 1936.”

Caution: While you are following food recipes, always keep in mind that you have to check the nutritional value of the food. You can accordingly alter your favorite foods by keeping calories and fats in check. Before you eat out, remember to keep check at high-calorie ingredients like oil and cheese.
