Whenever we decide on dieting New Years Resolutions we tend to get so excited that we dive into things that are simply no good for us. This means crash diets and activities that are just not going to keep the weight off and that will actually harm you health-wise.
Dieting New Years Resolutions You should Never Make:
Crash Diets: A crash diet simply means this. You are starving your body of the nutrients it needs to live and be well. It also impedes your body’s ability to lose weight and keep it off which is the goal in the first place. What happen is that your body goes into an emergency starvation mode. After you are done losing a bunch of weight–guess what? You put it back on and then some.
Liquid Diet: A liquid diet is just as bad–if not worse than the crash variety. This does not allow your body to absorb a lot of the nutrients that you need. This means you are not getting what you need to support your organs either. So, passing out is a very real risk on these diets and coupled with diet pills and no food will land you in the hospital. So, we hope you bypass this immediately.
Eating one meal a day: This will also do the same for the starvation feeling and although it is not an official diet–it is still a way of eating that should be avoided.
What all these diets and ways of eating have in common–is that while they have quick weight loss elements to it–it’s a losing battle because you will only gain it back straight away after and will have a lot less energy and maybe some health issues. Do you really need this? In the time it took you to go on this diet–it would have taken you just as long to just do it right.
What you should be doing:
Eating several small healthy meals a day is what you should be doing. This boosts metabolism, as well as energy and health. You should be drinking plenty of clean water and while you may be restricting calories–make sure it is in the right proportion and you are eating the right foods. Fruit and veggies should be on top of that list and you need to limit your protein to only 4 oz of lean protein like organic chicken or fish. You should incorporate superfoods such as Acai berry–blueberry and other red and blue berries. Green leafy veggies like kale and spinach are also great. Find organic Chia seeds and hemp powder if you can as well.
