Weight Loss Basics
Although there are an ever-growing number of diet books, plans
and groups, many people just want to achieve weight loss by
sensible healthy eating, rather than following a particular fad or
fashion. But where to start your weight loss program? Well, the
most basic and probably one of the best guides that you have, is
your own common sense.
Most dieters these days have already amassed enough information
about what is and isn't good for weight loss, to be able to decide
whether or not a particular food is healthy, or is likely to help,
hinder or otherwise affect their diet.
Very often it all comes down to a matter of balance. You know that
there are certain things that, unless you have particular medical
problems, are generally thought to be good foods that can help you
to be healthier and lose those extra pounds.
Most dieticians would agree that eating good portions of fresh fruit
and vegetables every day is going to be good for you. Also unless
you are on a low carb weight loss diet wholegrain foods such as

pasta, whole grain bread and rice are usually accepted as being
beneficial, both generally and for weight loss.
These days drinking is also very much in focus for those who wish
to achieve both weight loss and a benefit to their health. It is
generally thought that too much alcohol is not a good and may
bring about a variety of health problems, although small amounts
may not be a bad thing.
Water, especially spring water, is thought by many nutritionists to
be very beneficial to the health and there are some who say that it
can also be helpful to those who are concerned about weight loss.
Some encourage drinking water before meals as this can take the
edge from the hunger and will let the dieter have smaller meals
without feeling as though they haven’t had enough.
Lean meat and fish and also the occasional portion of oily fish such
as salmon, are another group of foods that are usually thought to be
beneficial to weight loss and general health. And also seeds, pulses
and many dieticians recommend nuts as being beneficial.
There are, of course, many foods that are not generally
recommended by dieticians as be effective for weight loss, such as

refined sugar products and many fried and especially deep fried
foods, such as French Fries. Although a certain amount of olive oil
is recommended by many health professionals.
It is of course not just the food that you eat, but the way that you
eat it that is thought to have an effect both on your health and your
weight loss. Many people skip breakfast but many health
professionals believe that this is not a good way, to either start the
day, or to achieve any kind of weight loss benefit.
Generally it is a matter of good sense and a reasonable knowledge
of what foods are good and should be eaten daily and what are not
so good and should be eaten only occasionally. Despite having the
ability to work out their own diet many still buy the many diet
books that are on offer to have a specific plan to work to.
Some find that it helps to have it written down so that they know
whether to eat a particular food or not. But if you want to there is
no reason why you should not be able to...
