Losing Weight- The Struggle

 

We all know the struggle that comes with losing weight. It’s a lot easier said than done. Most of the time, it comes down to cutting way back on your food intake and resulting in becoming hungry, and succumbing to that temptation and eating more food.
Dr. Sergio Cortes is here to tell you that is IT possible to eat less and become full, so you aren’t tempted to eat. Both fiber and protein are the key to starting you off on the right track. When fiber is consumed, it absorbs water or other liquids and gives us that full feeling.
People who consume more protein in their diet have been known to lose wight more efficiently. Protein also promotes muscle repair and growth. It is important to gradually add more and more protein and fiber to your diet rather than overdoing it in one day.
Don’t forget to eat those good wholesome foods too, such as fruits and veggies! Eating protein and fiber alone won’t show the results you’re looking for. Another simple secret in losing weight is drinking a lot of water! Not only is it good for weight loss, but also it is great for your skin. If you are sick of the ‘same old water’ flavor, add some fruits! Cucumbers, lemons and mint leaves taste amazing in water (don’t diss it til’ you try it).
Losing wight can be tough but if you do this before each meal you may just spoil your appetite on purpose (and that’s a good thing). For more protein and fiber aiding in your weight loss journey, visit Total Health Magazine.
