Don’t Believe Everything You Read
I just read an article that listed over 300 foods to help you lose weight and I was just thinking are you serious. Someone actually took the time to list foods that they think will help lose weight. Now I haven’t posted on the blog in awhile but this made sit down for a moment and think.
Do people really think there are certain foods that can help them lose weight? I mean I’m just curious to know if people are actually going out and buying food that they think will help them lose weight if they eat it. I remember seeing something where oatmeal will help you lose weight fast. Come on now are you kidding me? Oatmeal!
Foods for Losing Weight
I won’t disagree that some foods aren’t healthier and nutritious than others but aside from that there are not any foods that you can simply eat to help you lose weight. The concept of eating a so called “fat burning food” gets to me. I don’t want my readers thinking all they have to do is buy some food that is the “fat burning food” and they will lose weight.
The truth is that losing weight does come from the foods you eat, however, it is more about how much you eat as oppose to what you eat. Yeah people will say stay away from dairy, fatty foods, alcohol and all this other stuff. I must admit I have even said it in the past, but it’s not because they are bad foods!
The Problem with Losing Weight and Foods
One of the biggest problems people face when trying to lose weight is eating foods that are high in calories. The foods aren’t actually bad for you however it’s the amount of calories per serving that makes you gain weight. Think about alcohol for a minute, one mixed drink could contain as much as 400 calories and that’s just liquid which means you are still going to be hungry.
High calories foods aren’t bad for you they are just what they are, HIGH CALORIE FOODS! This means eat less of them and still enjoy them. Don’t think just eating peanuts and broccoli are going to help you lose weight. Make sure you know the facts.
So now you eat food while you are out and you have consumed over 1500-2000 calories in a few hours. It’s not that the foods you ate were bad it’s the fact you ate so many calories. My point is that I want you to be aware when someone tells you they have a special food that will help you lose weight.
The One Way Foods Help You Lose Weight
Though I have not foods that will help you lose weight I do have a suggestion for people who wish to use foods to lose weight. It’s nothing I haven’t written before and you will hear it over and over again because it’s the truth. The key to foods and you losing weight simply comes down to how much of it you are eating. In other words the only way to get foods to help you lose weight is to “EAT LESS FOOD!”
List of Foods that will Help you Lose Weight
- All whole grain or unprocessed foods
- Brown rice
- Wheat Bagel
- Plain Popcorn
- Pita Bread
- Protein Bars (really?)
- Whey Protein Shakes (come on!)
- Organic Beef
- Unsalted Cashews
- Unsalted Peanuts
My view of the List of Foods
Those were just 40 of the so called foods that will help you lose weight and fast as they put it. The sad part is that I know people who will see the list and immediately go out and buy this stuff. However most will forget that they already eat these things on a regular basis and are still not losing weight. In fact I know people who eat this and are still overweight and in some cases gaining weight.
Okay so it ended up being longer than expected
Actually this post was supposed to just be brief but it really bothers me that people will tell you just about anything when it comes to weight loss. I’m not saying just listen to me do your own research and pull from your own experiences. Have you had success losing weight from eating a particular food? Let me know, post a comment!
