To me It simply shows that there is improved standard of living especially among the elites and the middle class.
(Yes, the higher and middle class because even though we are told that our economy is now the largest in Africa, it doesn’t yet translate to the practical stage where the common man can feel it; most of the wealth is trapped by the higher and middle class groups).
Over indulgence has its serious consequences. Overeating or bad eating habit which can be found among the affluent (also among the poor) usually has its own problems, ranging from diminished self image to serious health issues.
In this light we have taken out some time to bring out some tips on how anyone can lose excess weight while maintaining an optimum health and how other nomo-weight individuals can maintain themselves in a trim and healthy shape.
This technique is a HIGHLY effective one and where first published it got above 6,500 comments and still counting, which expressly shows that countless people who have tried it are testifying to its efficacy. However, we all know that dieting or losing /gaining weight is not an easy task especially because it involves making a careful choice of foods. You are compelled to drop some delicious or some of your favorites and pick some foods you may never have desired if left alone.
You have to stick to the rules outlined here because it works and will work for you too if properly implemented.
There is a tendency to regain lost weight after stopping a weight loss program and the person goes back to former lifestyle without control or restraint. This should not be your attitude else what you will learn here will not make a lasting impact.
I want to repeat again that what you will learn here is not very easy to practice and many people will simply trash it BUT it has been proven to work and has worked marvelously for thousands of people. Its simplicity will make some people to disregard its efficacy but I urge you to go ahead and try it because I am waiting for your own testimony. You will surely have that testimony. Let’s roll…
Tip 1: Avoid “white” carbohydrates
Avoid any carbohydrate that is — or can be — white. The following foods are thus prohibited, except for within 1.5 hours of finishing a resistance-training workout of at least 20 minutes in length: bread, rice, cereal, potatoes, pasta (indomie,spaghetii,macaroni), and fried food with breading. If you avoid eating anything white, you’ll be safe.
Tip 2: Eat the same few meals over and over again
I said it. This is a difficult part but is it not worth the effort if it will help you become trimmer, stronger and healthier? You’ll surely be happier that you did it after all. Eating the same food again and again sounds crazy but you deserve to be healthy and strong. I urge you to go ahead.
The most successful dieters, regardless of whether their goal is muscle gain or fat loss eat the same few meals over and over again. Mix and match, constructing each meal with one from each of the three following groups:
Egg whites with one whole egg for flavor
Chicken breast or thigh
Grass-fed organic beef
Eat as much as you like of the above food items. Just remember: keep it simple. Pick three or four meals and repeat them. Almost all restaurants can give you a salad or vegetables in place of French fries or potatoes.
Surprisingly, I have found Mexican food, swapping out rice for vegetables, to be one of the cuisines most conducive to the “slow carb” diet.(slow carbohydrate foods),which I will still tell you about that in another article.
Most people who go on “low” carbohydrate diets complain of low energy and quit, not because such diets can’t work, but because they consume insufficient calories. A 1/2 cup of rice is 300 calories, whereas a 1/2 cup of spinach is 15 calories!
NOTE: The energy stored in food is measured in terms of calories.
Technically, 1 calorie is the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water 1 degree centigrade. The calorie measure used commonly to discuss the energy content of food is actually a kilocalorie or 1000 real calories.
This is the amount of energy required to raise 1 kilogram of water (about 2.2 pounds) 1 degree centigrade.
Vegetables are not calorically dense, so it is critical that you add legumes for caloric load.
Some athletes eat 6-8x per day to break up caloric load and avoid fat gain. I think this is ridiculously inconvenient. I eat 4x per day:
10am – breakfast
1pm – lunch
5pm – smaller second lunch
7:30-9pm – sports training
10pm – dinner
You can sit back and watch your favorite TV channel till sleep calls.
I want you to get up and commence something today. Do not be afraid of starting or of failing. Fix your eyes on the goal and it will keep you going. I hope to hear from you soon.
