A QUICK & EASY DIET
|Eat Less Fat|
This may be the least confusing and least complicated way to start gaining control over your weight. It isn't just the calories, it's also the fat. A lot of fat in your diet can mean a lot a fat on your body. Reduce the amount of fat in your diet and you're likely to shed pounds. How do you reduce fat intake? First, you read the labels on the foods you eat. You want to focus, for the time being, not on the number of calories but on the fat content (number of grams of FAT) listed on the label. Per serving.
Start by limiting your total daily fat intake to a maximum of 40 grams of fat. Total. Daily.
Here's a little simple thing that will show you how much weight producing extra fat you've been eating. Add up the total number of grams of fat in everything you eat during a full day. Make sure you take into account the amount per serving. Example: the label on a pouch of microwaveable buttered popcorn states fat content = 10g (grams). Not bad, right? Wrong! Up above that the label states "per serving" and the number of servings per bag is 3. That means if you eat the whole bag (easy to do if you're hungry) you are eating 3 servings, at 10 grams of fat per each serving. You are taking in 30 grams of fat!
1 fast-food burger (without fries) can contain up to 30 grams of fat
regular salad dressing alone can give you up to 30 grams of fat
(depending on how much you use)
2-3 scoops of regular ice cream can contain up to 30 grams of fat
cookies, candy and other snacks can contain lots of fat grams
(if you eat a lot of it).
|The above info about fat can help you see where a major problem is and help you lose weight gained by too much fat intake. Read those labels carefully; they can be tricky!
Limit yourself to no more than 40 grams of fat a day total. Later on, you might wish to reduce that to 30 grams or even 20 grams of fat per day to help you lose more weight and/or maintain your weight loss.
Start by substituting low-fat or no-fat foods (read those labels carefully!) for high-fat foods. Don't worry, your taste buds will soon adapt.
