Diet Tips for Losing Weight Naturally

Reading time 2 min.

When it comes to losing weight or improving health, you can experience setbacks even when you feel that you are doing everything correctly. Although the reason why you aren’t seeing results can vary from person to person, it could be because some of your healthy habits may not be as healthy as you think they are. This can be especially true when it comes to your diet. However, even if this could seem disappointing, with a little research it can easily be possible to figure out if your diet could be the cause of stagnating weight loss.

Some Health Foods Can Be Bad for You

Although many may know that it’s important to eat a healthy diet to improve health and help with weight loss, what many may not know is that there are lots of seemingly healthy foods that can actually sabotage weight loss efforts. Surprisingly, one example of a healthy food that can actually contribute to weight gain is high sugar fruits. Some of the highest sugar fruits are mangoes, grapes, apples, pineapples, and pears, to name a few. The reason that these kinds of fruits can be harmful is that even though they are generally thought of as healthy, the sugar they contain may still affect your body the same way that sugar from other sources would. It should be noted, though, that you don’t necessarily have to avoid these fruits altogether, simply eating them in moderation can often be helpful.

Foods To Try Instead

Just because some fruits may not be as healthy as you might think, doesn’t mean that you should avoid fruits altogether. While all fruits do generally contain some sugar, there are many fruits that contain relatively low levels of sugar, and also have other healthy attributes that balance out the effects of the sugar. Some fruits that can be especially healthy and that are low in sugar are figs, coconuts, raspberries and avocado.

Not All Carbs Are Bad

Another misconception that some may have about food is that all carbs are bad for them. Although some carbs can lead to weight gain and other health issues, the reality is that not all carbs will have a negative impact on health. When it comes to carbs, it can be important to differentiate the kinds of carbs that you are eating. Highly processed and refined carbs, like the kinds that you may find in cereal, pasta and white bread are the kinds of carbs that it may be better to avoid. Complex carbs, on the other hand, like the ones that you would find in brown rice or sweet potatoes can actually be a nourishing component of a healthy diet.

How Hydration Helps

Even though some might think more about the foods they eat rather than what they drink when they are considering their diet, hydration can play an important role in health and weight loss. This is in part because drinking plenty of water can have an appetite suppressing effect. You can take advantage of this effect by drinking a glass of water before a meal. Because your stomach will already be partially full with water, you will feel more satiated, and therefore eat less. In addition to that, water also serves other functions when it comes to weight loss. One thing that water does is help to remove toxins and waste from your system, which can bog you down and contribute to weight retention. Water also helps support many processes related to weight loss, such as digestion and muscle maintenance.

The Final Word

Deciding to lose weight and improve your health can be a great goal to have, but that doesn’t always mean it will feel easy. Sometimes, it can be possible to experience setbacks even when you feel that you are doing everything correctly. This can be especially true when it comes to the kind of diet that you eat.

That doesn’t mean, though, that you should necessarily feel discouraged. With a little research, it can be possible to make the best choices for you and see better results.

Check Your Vibes! Find out how much Positive and Negative energy you have!

The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool, created by iPEC, that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future.

You’ve probably taken personality tests, like Myers Briggs, DiSC, and Enneagram, but this is different. And transformational.

The ELI is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life. This means that you learn to make change happen in real-time when you encounter a moment of self-doubt, fear, or frustration.

With the awareness and insights gained through the Energy Leadership Index debrief, you have the opportunity to reshape your attitudes and worldview and transform your life into the one you envision.

Our worldview is the result of a combination of many different aspects: our past experiences, level of consciousness, perception of situations. Each of us has a unique combination of all seven levels of energy which, in turn, creates your typical viewpoints, perceptions, and beliefs about life.

Learning about your energetic makeup can help you to reframe your perspective, shift your consciousness, and increase your energy level as a result. Discover your unique energetic makeup by taking an ELI Assessment!

This comes with an hour debrief - As an FYI the price is what it is because there is a price to me- I have to pay the institution for the assessment and the scoring. Then I'll walk you thorugh your results.
