Top tips for healthy dieting
Have you been dieting the proper way? Improper dieting may cause negative consequences, including deterioration in health and even weight gain! Here are some tips for proper and healthy dieting:
1) Consume more Protein and Fiber
Replace food rich in
Carbohydrates and Fats with Protein and Fiber. As Protein is not easily
digested, this will cause an increase in diet-induced heat metabolism, allowing
more calories to be burnt. By adding more Fiber, a better feel-full factor than
Carbohydrates, you will be less prone to hunger pangs, thus reducing unnecessary
2) Never skip meals to lose weight
Think taking lesser food
equates to lesser body weight? Skipping meals not only result in lesser intake
of the daily nutrients required, it also causes metabolism rate to fall! When
there is no food for the stomach to digest, metabolism rate will decease overtime,
resulting in under-utilisation and accumulation of calories in your body
overtime. Besides, you will tend to take in more food the next meal due to suppressed
hunger, causing a greater spike in weight.
Instead of skipping meals, choose a lower calorie meal alternative that keeps you feeling full while providing you the nutrients you need in a meal. Find out more about our yummy Petit Shake.
3) Know your calories
You can enjoy your favourite ice cream as long as you take it in moderation. An average adult requires only 1,500 calories a day for energy production. Know the amount of calories in your food and take the appropriate portion, and you could still indulge in your favourite goodies.
4) Regular workouts
Relying solely on controlled and balanced diet is not sufficient if you wish to shed weight quickly. Building muscle and burning fats accumulated in your body is equally crucial to ensure a healthy body mass and shape. Regular workout can boost your basal metabolism, allowing more effective energy and fat burning overtime.
