5 Essential Steps To Weight Loss Success

According to John Phillip, a Diet, Health and Nutrition researcher/writer the only weight loss plan, which can work allows for flexibility in food choices and is structured for a slow transition to a new dietary lifestyle.

"The important thing to understand is that the type of food we eat and more importantly, when we eat that food has a profound effect on whether the body stores fat for future needs or burns fat for energy', explained Phillip in the article of "Weight Loss Success: Five Essential Steps."



These are 5 steps/summaries will provide the necessary guidelines to achieve permanent weight loss:-

1)Stop Eating After 7 PM
When you stop eating three to four hours before going to bed, initial digestion of food in the stomach is allowed to complete and the body must turn to burning fat for its energy needs.

2)Step 2: Eat Three Meals, No Snacking
The body needs three evenly spaced, moderately sized meals to fuel our energy needs, and also needs several hours after eating to process the food and return blood sugar and insulin to pre-meal levels.

3)Moderate Meal Size
The body is very sensitive to caloric intake, and excessive eating at any given meal causes an overload of sugar and fat to flood the bloodstream with detrimental health implications.
Once the body becomes conditioned to a smaller meal size, overeating will feel unpleasant and natural weight loss will be the result.

4)Include Protein with Breakfast
Eating a solid protein source with breakfast starts the energy burn cycle, which continues for most of the day, as it ramps up the natural fat release mechanism in the body.

5)Reduce High Calorie Carbohydrates
Refined and processed carbohydrates cause an immediate release of sugar into the blood as they begin to break down in the mouth. This starts a vicious cycle causing insulin resistance and ultimately conversion of sugar into stored fat. The excessive amounts of breads, pastas and sweets consumed by most people causes a sugar overload which leads directly to excess fat storage
