Replace These in Your Diet to Lose Weight

Published by

Gaining weight is so easy, but losing it can be a real pain. Sometimes you wouldn’t even think that the foods you are eating transform directly into belly fat – all you see is the scale showing you a bigger weight each day. Here are some things to replace in your daily diet to avoid growing your fat deposits.

change your eating habits1. Regular and diet soda

Most diet drinks have artificial sweeteners – aspartame, acesulfame potassium and others – and advertise themselves as being calorie-free. This might be true, but these can have a side effect that blows away their “dietness” – they can cause cravings for more food, tricking your brain into thinking that you are hungry.

Regular soda contains huge amounts of sugar which, when digested, goes directly into fat deposits, besides raising and dropping your blood sugar so fast that you will immediately crave for another one.

Replace regular and diet soda with pure water – tap water, bottled water, spring water, whatever you like – or various teas sweetened with honey (much healthier than sugar or artificial sweeteners) or Stevia.

2. Hydrogenated vegetable oils

Trans fats are naturally occurring substances of animal origin. While meats contain these in small amounts only, hydrogenated vegetable oils contain these in much larger amounts. Trans fats are bad for you – they can have side effects like raising your LDL (bad) cholesterol levels, increasing the risk of coronary heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer and obesity.

Partially hydrogenated vegetable oils are found in a great variety of food products – baked goods, snacks, fried foods, ready made dough, coffee creamer and margarine. Some restaurants use these oils in their deep fryers to avoid replacing them so often. Eating these foods while on a diet is a waste of time and money – you’d better visit Casino la vida for the latest casino games if you want to do that.

Butter is a great replacement for trans fats in your diet – a 2010 study has found that “there is no convincing evidence that saturated fat causes heart disease”. Besides, it contains all the healthy enzymes and fat-soluble vitamins normally found in whole milk, so it’s a very healthy food. Only avoid excess.

Other good replacements for trans fats are vegetable oils – sunflower, soybean or corn oil, with a high unsaturated fat content, or palm oil. It’s relatively easy to replace margarine with oil in recipes – the general rule is 1 teaspoon margarine equals 3/4 teaspoon of oil, 1 tablespoon equals 2 1/4 teaspoons and so on.

3. Snacks

Potato chips, candy, popcorn, ice cream, cakes, cookies – they are all delicious, but they also go directly to your belly fat. Fruits are the perfect replacement for them – apples, bananas, kiwi fruits, or anything else you can think of – except for grapes, mangoes, avocados, and prunes, as these are known to have loads of calories, and can make you fat.
