Join Diet Rite in redefining the word Diet:
It is commonly thought, and enforced, that we can eat anything we want when we are young because it has no effect on us. All parents take note: This is not true! What we eat does have an effect on our bodies. It may take some time to see and feel these effects, but we will and we do.
This belief causes us to develop poor eating habits that become hard to break as we get older. In fact, many of the aches, and pains we encounter when older stems from the things we did when younger.
By the time we see and feel the effects, we generally don’t associate it with earlier eating habits. Once we do, we always wish we had done things a little differently.
We need to redefine the word Diet. When we think of dieting, we think of a temporary event that brings up a lot of negative emotions such as deprivation and more. We think of diets as unpleasant, difficult, and restrictive in order to lose a few pounds. Once we lose weight, we tend to go back to the habits that caused our initial problems.
We need to think of our diet as a permanent thing because it is. Your diet is your eating habits. Your diet is much more than losing weight. You want to adopt an eating lifestyle that will allow you to stay healthy, to lose, or maintain a healthy weight, reduce the risk of chronic diseases.. and do something you enjoy doing so you continue to eat this way for as long as you are here.
A long term Lifestyle diet change will help you in the following ways:
- Weight Loss The most common reason for “dieting” is to lose weight. A healthy diet will allow you to eat fewer calories than you use during the day and you’ll lose weight. Add in exercise and you may also be able to improve your body composition since the exercise will help you maintain your muscle so you lose mostly fat. But a healthy eating lifestyle does so much more like:
- Lower Blood Pressure In addition to weight loss. Long-term healthy eating habits will help you lower your blood pressure levels, according to a study published in “Diabetes Care” in July 2011. Although improvements were greater in people who lost more weight, even those losing just 2 to 5 percent of their weight were more likely to experience improvements in systolic blood pressure.
- Lower Triglycerides Your body uses triglycerides to store any extra calories you consume, but having high levels can increase your risk for heart problems. The July 2011 “Diabetes Care” study found that losing at least 5 percent of body weight may help lower your triglyceride levels.
- Improved Cholesterol Ratio In addition to lowering your blood pressure and Triglycerides, long-term eating habits will help improve your cholesterol numbers by increasing your high-density lipoprotein, or good cholesterol, according to the July 2011 study.
- Decreased Heart Disease Risk Since having high blood pressure, high triglycerides, and high cholesterol increases your risk for heart disease, improving these numbers lower your risk for this condition, which is one of the most common causes of death for people in the United States. If you tend to carry your weight around your waist, losing some of this weight is particularly beneficial, A long-term healthy diet will help you accomplish this.
- Improved Survival Rates for People With Heart Disease If you already suffer from heart disease, losing weight may make future heart attacks or strokes less likely and help you live longer, even if you are still overweight after your weight loss, according to a study published in the “European Journal of Preventive Cardiology” in June 2008.
- Lower Blood Glucose Levels Long-term healthy eating habits will help you with losing at least a little weight. This can make it easier for diabetics to control their disease, since decreasing your weight can help lower your blood glucose levels, according to the 2011 “Diabetes Care” study.
- Decreased Diabetes Risk A long term healthy eating habits will give you better blood glucose control, as a result of weight loss, can decrease your risk for Type 2 diabetes. In a study published in September 2006 in “Diabetes Care,” each 2.2 pounds participants lost led to a 16 percent decrease in their risk for Type 2 diabetes.
- Improved Mood Losing weight will not only help you look better, but you will also feel better. Studies performed using participants of the National Weight Control Registry have found that weight loss may also lead to improvements in mood. Adopting a healthy eating lifestyle will help you accomplish these goals.
- Higher Energy Levels The National Weight Control Registry studies also noted that people who have lost weight tend to have more energy. This extra energy may make it easier for you to do the exercise that can help you maintain your weight loss and get in better shape.
