Interested in Losing Weight?
First of all, it’s crucial to accept that your current weight is nothing else but a consequence of your hereditary factors enhanced positively or negatively by your eating habits.
All the bodies are built on the same structure and need the same nutrients, but it’s the amount that varies.
By adjusting the amounts to what your body needs, losing weight will become history.
Keep your focus on working on the cause that leads to gaining weight (faulty diet choices), and correct it. This way, your body will adjust and re-adapt to the new habits. So, let’s cut it up:
They are called like this because the body needs them in macro quantities. These nutrients are protein, carbs, and fats.
The daily intake ratio should be 40% carbs, 30% fats, and 30% protein. But here is where quality intervenes.
For all three of them, you need to find a balance between the healthy sources, and the ones that are widely available.
Go for vegetal protein (soy, tofu, chickpeas, beans, nuts, lentils, mushrooms, etc.) or fish instead of animal protein. This will also help you with healthy vs. unhealthy fats.
Skip the bakery goods and sweets, and make sure you have more whole grains in your diet than sugar.
As you may have guessed, you need lesser amounts of them if you want a healthy body.
The vitamins, minerals, and fiber are part of this category, and you find them mostly in vegetables, fruits, and whole, unprocessed foods.
Make sure that fast food, cold meats, sweets and bakery goods or pre-cooked refrigerated foods are not the basis of your meals.
You can enjoy them from time to time, but not every day.
Losing weight starts with having healthy digestion, which allows you to evict the toxins properly so that they won’t get reabsorbed into your bloodstream.
The proper water intake helps you get rid of the toxins both through the urinary and digestive tracts.
In other words, these are the three key points you need to work on when getting the body you want. It’s not rocket science, but it involves discipline and will.
However, they are useless if you can’t find the motivation to do it.
Yes, processed and unhealthy food tastes awesome, and it might be hard to give it up, even gradually! But, in the end, it’s all that offers – a good taste, and wrecked health.
Consider it an investment in your health and a commitment to live an energetic life.

Moreover, as time goes by and you reconsider your diet, the new foods will contain less or no taste enhancers and chemicals to trick your brain into wanting to eat more. You’ll also notice that what used to be healthy “tasteless” food will be delicious and not boring at all.
It’s all a matter of choice – the short-time comfort and taste or the long-term health.
