The Anti Diet Food Diet
The grapefruit diet, the Atkins diet, the no fat diet, the no carb diet, the magic leprechaun diet …okay I made that one up but you get the point. these days there are all kinds of special magic bullet diets vying for your attention. And it is inevitable that the vast majority of people that try these diets are eventually going to fall short of their overall fitness goals. A lot of these diets require special diet foods and strict rules of eating that are just not practical. It is not reasonable to expect to always be able to have a magic diet bar around in every situation. Furthermore who wants to eat special food and be labeled as a dieter anyway? Not me that is for sure. It is bad enough to look in the mirror one day and realize that father time and taco bell have finally caught up with you. We do not need everyone else paying attention to that sort of thing by having to lug around some special shake or bar in order to lose weight.
For these reasons and many more it is very important to look at losing weight and dieting as a natural part of your daily life. You have to take away the thought that dieting is some special thing you are doing in order to lose a quick ten pounds and look at it as a natural and permanent change in the way you eat and exercise in order to live a healthier life. On top of the motivational and long term affect it is actually going to be healthier for you to just eat natural food instead of some special diet food anyway. I mean have you ever seen a super diet bar 4000 growing on a farm somewhere? Do they have super diet bar 4000 plants in some country I have never heard of? I do not think so. Those things are just processed food and not as healthy as whole food anyway. Natural food is the way to go. But what is natural food anyway?
Natural food is just what it sounds like, food that you would see growing (or walking) somewhere in its natural state. The most obvious form of this is fruits and vegetables. Tomatoes can be eaten raw and they do not look any different on your plate than they do growing on the vine. That is natural food. Sure it can be processed a little. Tomato soup for example is a form of minimally processed food. It is still natural but it is not exactly as natural as a raw tomato. In terms of dieting and losing weight the more natural the food is the better. When something is overly processed it is going to be more dangerous to your health. Twinkies for example are a good example of a processed food. Pretty much everything in them is processed in some form or another.
Eating natural food instead of diet food is a great first step to a long term and successful diet. Sure there are other things that you need to do in order to have the biggest impact such as monitoring overall calorie intake and adding in some exercise, but just eating natural food is a great way to start dieting.
