If you plan to start a new diet on Monday then you may be asking yourself this question: Is a Filling Diet a contradiction in terms? Do we have to starve to lose weight?
The short answer is, “No!” But read on …
Smoothies are great for helping you lose weight because you can fill it up with loads of healthy things you might not want to eat otherwise … like healthy GREEN things! It really works, believe me. And you don’t taste them, which is even better in my book, lol.
Living in a cold, wet climate, salads are never high on my list of winter food … and don’t diets always begin in winter – think new year resolutions!
So I found smoothies worked for me (but not ice-cold ones, lol!)
About 11 months ago I started down the replace-a-meal-with-a-healthy-smoothie trail as part of my healthy eating plan and quickly lost over 40 pounds. I must confess I’ve not been so good for last few months, but managed to maintain the weight loss until … I succumbed to the extra treats over the Christmas holidays and I’ve put on a few pounds.
And I don’t want to put on any more!!! So with Monday literally hours away, I plan to get back on track. I know that Monday never comes when planning to diet, but I’m not going to diet remember; I’m getting back on my healthy eating plan.
Plus it’s New Year … and doesn’t that mean getting serious about it?
I agree whole-heartedly with this quote I found from Rebecca Clyde, M.S., R.D.N., C.D., blogger at Nourish Nutrition, writing at Self.com …
Dieting sucks! It means depriving yourself of your favorite foods. Not only that, but it doesn’t work. Research shows us over and over that following a diet leads to weight gain after the fact, bingeing, and in my mind, an unhealthy relationship with food.
