Dieting Is Boring–Healthy Eating Plans Aren’t

Just because you are adopting a healthy eating plan doesn’t mean you can’t eat delicious meals anymore and restrict yourself to only eating cabbage and broccoli. A healthy eating plan teaches you how to prepare the delicious meals that you love in a healthy way. Healthy foods are already low in calories thus you don’t need to do any sort of calorie counting when you are following a healthy eating plan. In the article below Isabel De Los Rios explains the difference between dieting and adopting a healthy eating plan.

Healthy Eating Plan vs. Dieting-Which One Do You Like?

healthy eating plan will trump over dieting every time, when it comes to losing weight and keeping it off. Why? Because nutritious eating is a lifestyle change whereas dieting is short-lived. If you’re torn between going on a diet and following a healthy eating plan, here are some reasons to choose healthy eating over dieting.

A Healthy Eating Plan Teaches You About Nutrition

Losing weight is not just about having a lean sculpted sexy body; it’s also about leading a healthy lifestyle. Diets that tell you to drink only liquids or remove carbohydrates or fats from your diet are full of crap. We gain the nutrients we require by the foods we consume. Any diet that requires you to eliminate some of the most important foods is unhealthy.

It’s easy to believe that nutritional shakes, snack bars, frozen dinners and other processed foods are alright to eat, especially when you don’t know what to look for. When you choose a healthy eating plan instead of “dieting,” you learn to make every calorie count by choosing foods that give you the best nutritional value for your efforts.

Poor nutritional health contributes to heart disease, cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis and other life altering health conditions. Most of the processed foods labeled by manufacturers as “healthy” aren’t really healthy at all. Nope. Not even a little.

Diets are Confusing, Restrictive and Time Consuming

Some diet tells you to sip shakes all day. Some diet tells you to do away with all fats. Some other diet tells you to get rid of carbohydrates. And sometimes, you’re lured into believing that eating frozen diet meals for the rest of your life is good for you. Confusing, right? Unlike a traditional diet, there is nothing restrictive or frustrating about a healthy eating plan.

Measuring food, counting calories and reading labels is a time wastage that you can do without. There is no need to measure the calories or use charts when it comes to healthy foods as they are already low in calories (but you still need to eat sensibly). Seriously, who has time to do this stuff? I really don’t, and I’m guessing you certainly don’t either.

When you learn which foods are actually good for you, you can use them to create healthier versions of the meals you love. Take for instance, instead of using white flour or pancake mix to make pancakes you could use rolled oats which is not only healthy but really delicious.

When you learn to make delicious nutritious meals with the healthy foods you love, you will never feel limited as to what you can eat.

A Healthy Diet Produces Long-term Results

The reason why most diets are considered “fad diets”, is that they they are not realistic for long-term use. So, come on. How long you think you can follow the juice only diet? Even if you do get rid of a few pounds, you’ll gain the weight right back.

We will not discuss the nutritional deficiencies that can arise when following the plans that prohibit (or severely restrict) carbohydrates, essential nutrients, fat, and others. Your health is your most valuable asset. It should be protected at all costs. Eating healthy food is the best way to enjoy the results of permanent weight loss without sacrificing your health.

Enter the Diet Solution Program and you will learn how not to fall for the fad diet hype, so you can be confident in your ability to lose weight forever. A healthy diet plan does not consist of a diet that tells you not to eat fruits and vegetables.
