What should I eat for weight loss? What should I eat for my health? These are two frequent yet important questions people ask me all the time.

Let’s face it, there’s a truck load of information about these topics that seem to change every time we look around. Sure, there’s some really good stuff out there. Some things make good sense and others, well, you know, just seem too darn confusing. For instance most people know why we should eat, it fuels our bodies. However, who has a clue what new diet pill or liquid weight reducing shake to take? Or if any of those things really work? Which I think is doubtful. Okay, I’ll be a bit blunter.

I would personally go as far as to say; now here’s one for the record, “I know diets don’t work.” Why? It’s because if they did, everyone who ever went on one would be skinny. Hey, I thought that one would make you smile! It’s fun to have a truthful sense of humor.

However, don’t you want to know what does work? Well, it’s eating the right foods and often enough. Got it? Good!!!

Okay, now let’s get back to what should I eat? I agree information about healthy eating changes rapidly, and it can be a bit overwhelming trying to keep up with the changes. Yet I believe there is one true fact that never changes. What is it? It’s simplicity.In fact, it’s what I live by and I always suggest to other people who want to make any kind of a life style change. I advise them to just keep it simply.

Here’s why! When you attempt to change things too quickly, it can often be too drastic and overwhelming. Therefore you become influenced with trying to do too much too soon. Which we know never works. Then you’ll end up like most people, frustrated with making little to no progress at all. So, the key is to take it slowly and move one step at time.

What Should You Eat? Eating regimes are truly individual and should be base on foods you enjoy. But before you start your eating plan it’s important to first identify three key elements about food & eating.Here are the three elements. Why You Should Eat! When Should You Eat!& How Much You Should Eat!

Why You Should Eat? Eat when you are hungry and your body needs fuel. Don’t eat simply because you’re bored, stressed, or lonely. Note: Although sometimes it may feel like the taste of a good moist jelly donut or a hot mocha latte’ is your best friend after experiencing the heaviness of a stressful day or trying situation. However, do resist the temptation; “Your Waistline Will Thank You.”

When Should You Eat?
 It’s imperative you start your day with a big breakfast rather than skipping it, and then resorting to eating a big dinner later. Why? Eating a good balanced breakfast gives you energy and rejuvenates your metabolism as well it stimulates your brain. It will get you going after a long night without food by providing your body with the nutrients it needs.
Food For Thought:
It’s like having a Mercedes in your driveway you can polish it up all you want, but if you don’t put any gas in it you’re not going anywhere. Note: Many surveys show that those who usually eat a good nutritious breakfast tend to be slimmer and or weight less than those who don’t.….

How Much Should You Eat!

 It’s important to know there is always an appropriate portion size for anything you eat. It’s good to know your portion sizes then heed to what’s best without over doing. Therefore you should always know that eating smaller portions is the correct way to go.

*Try instead of skipping meals to eat some thing every four to five hours. It’ll keep your metabolism regulated and you’ll less likely feel the urge to binge or overeat later on. Especially if you are among those who tend to not eat all day. That’s why doing this and making it a practice is one of the best ways to not starve (which slows down your metabolism) your body. However, it’ll instead keep you energized and satisfied.

Now here’s,

What Should I Eat? Basic Plan 101 ….

Eat These:

     * Whole grains: oats, whole wheat/grain breads, beans, legumes etc. Fresh fruits: berries, pears, plums, apples, oranges, blueberries, strawberries, raspberries apples etc. ….

  • Vegetables: Go green! Dark green vegetables (particularly provide you with more nutrients that produce power antioxidants) greens, broccoli, spinach, sweet potatoes, beans, zucchini, peppers ect.)….
  • Take a Multi vitamin for balance nutritional needs.
Protein: lean meats (chicken, beef etc.), eggs (in moderation), goat & sheep’s milk product, plain yogurt, preferably organic naturally sweeten etc…..
            Good Fats.
Fish: Mackerel, salmon, trout, herring, sardines, and halibut. Nuts, seeds, and oils, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, avocados and flax seed and cold-pressed unheated oils such as olive oil, canola oil, Sesame seed oil etc. ….
Avoid bad fats like,hydrogenated oils or trans fats, processed meats, corn syrups, saturated fat, sugar, refined carb’s, cakes, candy, pastries, cupcakes, scones, muffins and pies.
·Drink Plenty ofWater
Note: The usual recommendation is about a half gallon a day, or more especially if you are physically active and sweat more. Herbal teas and vegetable juice can count towards your daily intake and stay in the body longer.Caffeinated tea, coffee, alcohol & soda don’t count because they can lead toward dehydrating and nutrient losses. Some foods contain a lot of water; fruit can be 90 to 95 percent water. Vegetables have high content. Cooked whole grain can hold some water as well.….

Joey L. Dowdy’s “ Think it & Shrink It

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 13, 2010 by JJgroove01

{ Making the Slim & Trim Connection}

You don’t have to spend another year flipping through all those popular glam magazines drooling over all those beautiful bodies. Sure, there’s nothing wrong with fantasizing about having a set of ripping abs, a tight tosh, along with a nice pair of shapely arms & legs. However, it takes a wee bit more than just looking and wishing for what you see. Honey, you’ve got to Get Up & Groove if you want to “Shape Up & Shrink down What Ya Momma Gave Ya!”

Yes, You Can Chisel away 5,10, 15 or more pounds, it’s very do able, but here’s the problem, most people have the wrong approach. They have been lead to think the secret is spending endless amounts of money on the latest “so called” new and improved commercial products, such as Fat Blasting diet pills, Trendy Treadmills, the all in one Wii-Fit, and the new more targeted positioning ab rollers, butt & thigh master machines etc.

Have you ever noticed that most of the people who usually purchase these products end up getting the same results which is losing a few hundred, or more, dollars and they’re left with little to no outstanding advertised results? In fact, a mass majority of these folks end up back where they were before, or in some cases worse. Why? It’s because they’re overlooking one key component.

Don’t get me wrong, I believe you should make a personal investment in your health and physical well being. However, you should make sure that your hard earn dollars are spent on things that really work and give you lasting results. What missing?

The real truth is that in order to obtain your desired fitness goals you must have “The Right Mind Set.” You can’t change your body until you change the way you think about your body. Go For Positive, Never Negative. You should always think positive about yourself and your body. Did you know that your body is fueled by your thoughts and actions for instance, if you’re constantly saying, “I’m big, I’ve always been a big person, my whole family is big, so I guess I’m destined to always be big.” Well, guess what? If that’s what you’re thinking, “that you will be.” However, this is a mistake that far too many people make.

Instead focus on more flourishing Body Beautiful thoughts by saying, “I accept and appreciate my body right now no matter my size I am; I am thankful for it and its wonderful lively heart beat. Yet, I do see /visualize my self getting slimmer and trimmer by taking it one step at a time.  And I am now totally committed to taking active daily measures towards my desired new look.”

Note: If you’re always over weight in your thoughts and dreams, you’ll always have to fight those thoughts to stay healthy. Negative Thoughts will Only Bring About Negative Results.  And who wants that? So, Be Wise, Think Positive.

Here how!

*Stop Comparing Your Body to Someone Else’s.

*Own your look and your body image right now no matter what it looks like.

*No BODY is perfect there is always room for improvement.

*Change Your Mind Set

{You Can’t Change Your Body Until You Change Your Mind.}

Results:You will become much more aware of your thoughts; you’ll feel better about yourself and start making a positive outlook A Life Style.

*Work towards Your Ideal Body Image?

Describe your ideal body image by writing it out. What Does It Look Like? Describe the parts that you want to improve on, and then your best liked features.

Results:

Writing this out will teach you things about yourself you never realized. You’ll begin to see that by focusing on what you like, as well as those features needing  improvement, how it’ll help you to truly create a realistic image(not a celebrity glam magazine image) that’s all your own. Once you change your thoughts and take physical action toward a healthier life style, you’ll slowly see your body image change as well as the self sabotaging words, ideas, and phrases that once held you back.

Then once you’ve adapted a more positive attitude towards your thoughts and body, you will most likely be encouraged and prepared to start creating a realistic working plan that’ll help your reach your fitness goals. So, let today be the perfect time to start taking steps in the right direction and begin working on the new and improved you. Who is now ready to Think It & Shrink It.
