Losing Weight With Diet Meal Plans

April 27, 2010 by Coach Ronda in Nutrition with 0 Comments


If you are looking to lose some weight, then you might want to look for diet meal plans. Why a diet? Well if you are familiar with the Pareto principle, then you would know that 80% of your results comes from 20% of you input. In the case of losing weight, we all know that exercise and diet are the 2 main elements.

If you apply Pareto principle, the main bulk of your ability to shed those pounds is based on your diet. Exercise helps but can be easily undone by improper eating. So what can you do if you are binging on food and just can’t seem to control yourself? Simple, you got to have prepared diet meal plans.

Now, I’m not saying you should go out and eat vegetables only. Nor should you try to torture yourself this way (unless you are a vegetarian or enjoy eating this way). What I’m saying is that your diet meal plans should have the proper amounts of calories and nutrients. For 7-day diet meal plans, the key element is that it should cycle your calorie intake. This is because eating too little calories for several days will actually cause the body to starve. It will then create a response in the body to store the fats instead.

On the flip side, eating healthy but calories-rich food will not help you to lose weight. You’ll be maintaining your weight at the most. Next up, your diet meal plans should have a decent ratio of protein and fats.

The ratio of carbohydrates should be lower though, as that is what turns causes your body to release insulin and covert what you eat into fats more easily. Protein tends to promote weight loss if taken enough. Be careful not to overdose on the ratio though as it may cause stress on the kidneys.

So there you go, some reasons why you should place emphasis on your diet when losing weight and some quick tips that can serve as a guideline for natural and healthy weight loss.
