Weight-Loss and Obesity – Dietary Tips

weight-loss-lose-weightHere are some basic dietary recommendations to help lose weight and prevent obesity. Remember, it is about lifestyle changes, not about fad diets if you want to be successful in the log run.

Recommendation Why
Choose low-glycemic-index foods Diets that emphasize choosing foods with a low glycemic index, such as vegetables, have been shown to help control appetite in some studies.
Feast on fiber Fiber from vegetables and some fruits adds bulk to the diet and tends to produce a sense of fullness, helping people eat fewer calories.
Try a low-carb, high-protein Low-carbohydrate, high-fat diets are popular among people trying to lose weight. Some research suggests that their effectiveness is due to the fact that people eat fewer calories while on them.
Cut back on calories People who have successfully lost weight report eating fewer snacks of low nutritional quality and eating breakfast regularly. They also report getting less calories from fat and more from protein.
Find a diet that fits For long-term success, choose a healthy diet that you can stay with. With each weight fluctuation, it becomes easier to gain weight and harder to lose it, so make changes that last.
Choose breast-milk over formula In one study, breast-feeding during infancy was associated with a reduced risk of developing obesity during early childhood (ages three to four).
Uncover food allergies Although the relationship between food sensitivities and body weight remains uncertain, chronic food allergy may lead to overeating and obesity.
