Eating Habits That Make You Fat!

Simple diet misunderstandings are stopping your good intentions and efforts to get back into that one size smaller pair of pants.  Slim Body Secrets for Women and Slim Body Secrets for Men help you eliminate the mistakes that are keeping the slim body away and hiding your lean body inside.  If you practice any of these eating habits, you have probably experience short term weight drops only to have it bounce back up.  If so, there’s a high probability you could be making one of these weight loss blunders.

1) Using a Starvation Diet
Determined to lose 10 pounds fast, you turn to a starvation diet. Your game plan calls for eating nothing but grapefruit and cabbage soup each day. You slash your daily calorie intake to below 1,200 and sure enough, the pounds melt away. But when you consume such a low number of calories, you train your metabolism to slow down. Once the diet is over, you have a metabolism that burns calories at a reduced rate and you now gain weight more quickly than ever before.

2) Not Paying Attention to Your Snacks
You count calories meticulously at every meal, but you forget about all those nibbles in between? There’s the bag of cookies on your counter, the little slice of cake at an work party, the bite of your son’s ice cream cone. All of this mindless munching adds up and could sabotage an otherwise meticulously planned diet. If you’re serious about counting calories, you may want to use a notebook to keep track of each and every bite.

3) Not Snacking at All
While carefree snacking can increase your waistline, thoughtful snacking may do just the opposite. People who plan several small meals and snacks a day are more likely to control hunger and lose weight. Eating 4 to 6 light meals helps keep your metabolism in high gear, especially when the snacks are high in protein. Nuts are a good choice, and research suggests people who snack on nuts tend to be slimmer than those who don't.

4) Missing Breakfast
Skipping breakfast seems like a reasonable way to limit calories, but the outcome will be an unsatisfied hunger throughout the rest of the day. This leads to unplanned snacking and super-sizing your lunch that makes your total day calorie counts soars.  Breakfasts that are high in protein and fiber reduce your hunger throughout the rest of the day.  In fact, people who eat breakfast every morning are more likely to maintain a healthy weight when compared to those who skip breakfast.

5) Drinking Too Many Calories
When counting calories, we may overlook what is in the beverages. This is a huge mistake when you consider that many alcoholic beverages have more than 500 calories. Even the calories in fruit juice will add up quickly. What’s worse is that liquid calories do not eliminate hunger. You’re not going to eat any less after a high-calorie drink.

6) Drinking Too Little Water
This is the simplest diet mistakes to fix. Water is needed for consuming calories. If you let yourself get dehydrated, your metabolism drags and that means slower weight loss. Researchers suggests adults who drink an ounce of water for every two pounds of weight of water per day use up more calories than those who drink less. Add a glass of water to each meal and snack.

7) Setting Unrealistic Goals
Planning on loosing 20 pounds your first week is   unachievable. If you know you won’t be able to do it, you will never start your diet in the first place. If you do diet and lose 5 pounds in a week, instead of celebrating, you may feel discouraged that you didn’t reach your goal. A realistic goal is vital to successful dieting. If you’re not sure what your goal should be, talk to a dietitian.

8)  Skipping Exercise
When you don’t exercise, you place the entire burden of weight loss on your diet. If you become more active, you can eat more special treats and still lose weight. The key is finding an exercise you like. If the treadmill seems tedious, try swimming, ballet, or biking, all of which burn more calories than walking. Try several different activities until you find one you enjoy regularly.

Slim Body Secrets for Women and Slim Body Secrets for Men are free mini-courses that provides 10 secrets to unleashing your leaner body.  Unlike most weight loss programs that just tell you to reduce the number of calories you eat per day, Slim Body Secrets works with you to balance your lifestyle so that you can achieve your weight loss goals, unwrap your slimmer body, and guides you with specific steps to reduce and maintain your target weight.
