7 results for 'calories'

Diet conversations I have are usually about psychology

By Lartinos, published on Mar 18, 2013

Everyone wants to know more information about dieting as there is a tremendous amount of ignorance in the world as how to properly run a diet. To get good and not great results you do not need to actually know all that much. It is common sense that sugar is indeed not good for dieting, but many people simply rationalize the decisions they make so their world makes sense on their own terms. I was once one of these people who were totally addicted to sugar and therefore blinded to the rationalizations that I made. Conquering weight loss can very often lead to other great changes in our life as... (more)

Take fiber or suffer the consequences

By Lartinos, published on Mar 15, 2013

Many people have heard that fiber is good for you, but why exactly is fiber so good for dieting and overall health? Studies have shown fiber decreases body weight, can possibly extend life expectancy, and may even increase muscle mass. Fiber also helps regulate our bowel movements as well; That means it will help you whether you are either constipated or suffering from diarrhea, something that everyone must deal with at some point. Just knowing the benefits of fiber does not fix the problem of having a shortage of this important nutrient, we must plan ahead or there is an excellent... (more)

How exactly do you read a nutritional label?

By Lartinos, published on Feb 13, 2013

...much a serving indeed is. From there you can judge exactly how many servings you will actually be eating and multiply the number if necessary. Purposely eating the small serving size given is also a great way to manage your portion control. This is an important number, so make sure you use it!Calories: Overall I am not a big fan of counting just calories. It is an unreliable number, especially on nutritional labels as it usually only says the amount of calories from fat as opposed to carbs most often. Carbs are actually a more important piece of information. Feel free to count your... (more)

Diet for the right reason and don't just

By Lartinos, published on Feb 4, 2013

Really think about why you are trying to lose this weight. Are you trying to lose this weight so you can buy yourself a gift at the end? Are you trying to lose this weight so you can treat yourself with an unhealthy food at the end? Too many of you out there forget the real benefit of losing the weight… is actually losing the weight. There is nothing wrong with treating yourself to something special. The problem is that people forget that the real joy is setting a goal that we really want and sticking to it. If that goal alone is not enough to motivate you than you may not have what it takes... (more)

10 Reasons you are not losing weight!

By Lartinos, published on Jan 28, 2013

...pushing ourselves.ex We lose 2 lb’s and then throw a ticker take parade… and reward ourselves with some cake :).

4.Lack of overall knowledge: Most people are unaware that calorie counting has been scientifically been shown to be an ineffective form of dieting because not all calories are burned off as easily as others. Once people learn that it is much harder for our bodies to burn off calories from carbs as opposed to protein they soon start to understand that they should instead be counting carbs. This one fact just barley scratches the surface of information that people ... (more)

You're hungry because you are not dieting correctly!

By Lartinos, published on Jan 7, 2013

“I can’t diet because I am hungry all the time!” I am sure you have either heard someone say this or you have said it yourself. It is very common for people to drastically change their diet without putting much thought into the process at all. Would be dieters end up with terrible hunger pains because of their lack of planning. Their old diet filled with carbohydrates and saturated fats would leave them full and happy in the short term, and of course with a larger waist line than they would like for themselves.

The key to staying full after meals that stay on your on diet depend on the... (more)
