Sensible Weight Loss Plan- 
Six Steps for a Healthier Trimmer You

When it comes to losing weight, there are right and wrong ways to go about it. To effectively lose weight and keep it off, you need to follow a sensible weight loss plan.

Starving yourself for a few days here and there might be a temporary fix. It is not the proper way to lose weight and keep it off.

First, you'll have a weak moment of extreme hunger and end up going on an eating binge, usually consisting of all the wrong foods.

Secondly, as soon as you resume your regular eating habits, all the weight you lost will return quickly.

Most importantly, this is not healthy. Your body and your mind need adequate nutrition to function properly. Your body is like a machine, and it needs fuel to run. If you desire a well-built body, or machine, you are going to have to give it quality fuel.

What is a Sensible Weight Loss Plan

Sensible weight loss plans are those that you adopt permanently. They allow you to lose weight and keep it off, while improving your overall health. Proper nutrition is not only for losing weight. It is about your health.

Six Steps for a Healthier Trimmer You

A well structured diet improves your vital organ health and prevents disease. Remember the saying, "You are what you eat." Here are some basic guidelines to get you started.

  1. Get your daily allowance of fiber. If you aren't getting it from food, take a supplement. 
  2. Read food labels. Cut down on sodium; take note of the fat percentage of the calorie count. Look for high protein, high fiber, and low fat foods.
  3. Eat foods without UPC symbols. The less processing a food undergoes at the manufacturing plant, the healthier. Packaged and prepared foods are high in sodium and preservatives. Foods with no UPC include fresh fruit, fresh vegetables, and fresh baked bread.
  4. Eat breakfast. Breakfast food should not include doughnuts or heavy sugar. Wise choices are a single egg omelet with cheese; low or no fat yogurt with wheat germ and fresh blueberries; high fiber cereal or oatmeal with skim milk; V-8 Fusion (one glass has a full serving of fruits and vegetables and no added sugar). Try this low glycemic breakfast to jump start your day.
  5. Exercise regularly, even if only for 15-30 minutes a day. No sensible weight loss plan is complete without regular physical activity.
  6. Think "colorful" when choosing foods, such as blueberries, raspberries, apples, strawberries, tomatoes, and deeply colored salad ingredients like spinach and radicchio. 

Consider using the glycemic index as a sensible approach to a weight loss plan. It is the better way for a better weight; if you want to stop failing diets, lose weight and keep it off, and feel more energetic.
