You probably wouldn’t believe me or you would think this was one of those “crash diets” that you may have tried in the past. (Those diets that made you gain all the weight back (or more) when it’s over.)
You shouldn’t feel embarrassed because we have all done it. In fact, most people who go on a diet plan stay on it for a while, get great results and then BAM! – a few months later, gain all the weight back!
There is a concept called calorie dense food which is used to refer to unhealthy foods, on the other hand, there are calorie-light and nutritionally rich foods which can still be very healthy, fulfilling and tasteful.
Here’s how it works: you eat the same amount (in terms of volume), as the stomach registers “volume” much more than calories, when it comes to feeling “full.”
Without cutting down the portion size, you eat foods that are fiber and water rich adding more nutrients to your body. If you were eating 3000 in calories, this can be cut down to 1570 just by substituting your calorie dense foods with calorie-light foods.
A low-calorie density diet offers the best of the both worlds: higher dietary quality and weight loss.
Still wonder how this works?
Imagine eating 3 lbs of food: Eating 3 pounds of fats and oily foods will have 12,000 calorie. What if you ate 3 lbs of greens, non-starchy vegetables, fruits, starchy vegetables, whole grains and legumes? You would take in less than 2000 calories.
See the difference? It’s not actually the quantity of the food, it is the quality of the food that makes a big difference. Food rich in water, air, and fibers are good for your body, as well as being extremely nutritious, healthy and very filling.
Imagine making a pasta sauce with oil, butter or cheese. It might taste good at first but it will weigh you down with calories that will not fill you up.
Now, you could make pasta sauce, but this time blend in veggies like broccoli, garlic, onion and cauliflower. It will make it tasty and nutritious, while cutting down the calories and helping you lose weight.
Just by swapping out the type of food, you can lose up to 17 lbs in 21 days! Without starving! All by eating foods that are tasty and healthy for you! Here are some resources to get you started.
