Diets: You Heard Them All, But What's the Truth?

Health is Wealth.

YES! Everybody knows that. That is probably the motto behind every single gym goers, dieticians, health experts, health conscious and the like. But what does it really mean? Does everybody need to go on a strict diet every now and then? What is a strict diet?

“YOU NEED TO BE ON A DIET,” says no one to oneself ever. Almost every single one of us is still in a denial stage which we keep on saying “Who needs diet when I love food more than I love myself.” But for some who have already been awakened from the sad facts about her body, DIET IS A MUST.

But due to pressure from people in the environment, some of us are taking too much seriousness about the word DIET. They are just mainly focusing on targetting their ultimate body goal size.

These people, sometimes, forgot the true meaning of HEALTH IS WEALTH. Because for them, being healthy is having a slim body. Well, who does not want to have one, right? But does it literally mean that when you have a slim body you already are healthy?

So, if you are going to have a diet anytime soon then you better be aware of what is the real thing behind the diet.

Three full-meals is better than 6 small meals

It was way back in the past that people say the three full-meals should be cut down into 6 small meals, which is not working at all. Let us say you will break down 2000 calories into 3 meals which would be around 600+ and 2000 calories into 6 meals will be 300+ calories, then what is the difference? Both styles are still ending with 2000 calories.

But, that was not what they explained before. They said when you choose to eat 6 times a day you will burn more calories than eating 3 times. Well, it is somehow true because when we eat, we burn calories and the more times we eat the more calories we burn. But for the past 30 years, no research was found out that eating more times a day will help you lose weight. In fact, it will just make you feel more unsatisfied and unhappy with what you eat.

When Canadian researchers said that there was no significant difference in weight loss when you break down your meals or not. Remember that it is not all about the food intakes you have. It is also about what you did to lose those calories that you have taken inside your body.

Eat Dinner if You Want

Most people say that eating dinner is a sin when you are on a diet, which is totally WRONG! Eat dinner if you want to, never mind what those people say to you. It is not the time that matters the most but the amount of food intake you had during the entire day. Researchers found out that there is no significant difference between eating earlier before the night and eating later at night.

Timing is not what matters, remember that. Researchers in the University of Oregon says that eating too many calories causes weight gain regardless of when you eat them. And yes, no matter when you eat the calories will still be the basis of your weight loss journey.

You will not become fat by eating at night. It will only happen if you OVEREAT at night. If you’re aware of how much you should be eating within any given day, you can place those calories in whatever meal works best for your body. You know yourself well, try not to cheat and make some alibis because after all, it is you cheating on yourself.

Go fasting if it works for you

Not eating during your diet is called STARVATION. Most people say it is not applicable to ALL. But, NO, it does for some who can.

There is a difference between withholding what your body needs and reprogramming your body. Sometimes it is what our body needs to do, controlling your hunger and recharge your body into what it is supposed to be. Do not get wrong with fasting at all. It is nothing crazy much more if it works well with you.

Yet, it should also be done correctly. Because the idea of going several hours without eating during daytime is totally the wrong approach.

Fasting can actually help your body burn fat, recharge, and stay healthy.

Cleanse diet is the end point of right fasting. In this way, you are getting rid of your body toxins, improve internal functions, and help you to age better.
