Diet is a four-letter word that sounds like punishment. It is associated with giving up sweets and many foods you enjoy, feeling hungry and deprived, and eating only healthy products.
Michelle Adams-Arent, a sports nutrition consultant, explains why the number of meals you eat in a day is important for fat loss.
Firstly, we should understand that it is not so important how much we eat, but when we do this.
Different diets have different ideas on what we should eat and what we should avoid. Some of them recommend that we give up fried foods and sweets; others require a person to eat only proteins or only fruits and vegetables.
Our body is designed so that each time we eat a meal we get a certain amount of energy. If this energy is not spent in the time it should be, it converts to fats and gets accumulated in the body.
Here are some of the foods that you should eat to look good.
Dark leafy greens
Yes, they can be bitter and less than exciting at first, but they are loaded with vitamins and iron and can be snuck into meals easily (omelets, pasta, salads, etc.).
2. Dark chocolate
You should eat this because it’s delicious, and because a recent study also showed its capacity to protect skin from UV damage. The claims that it’s packed with antioxidants have been recently called into question.
What gives these guys a leg up on other fruit is the fact that they’re super low in calories and very high in vitamin C, fiber, vitamin E, and other brain-boosting nutrients.
4. Green tea.
People who drink green tea have about a dozen health advantages over people who do not—from cancer prevention to longevity to gentler skin aging—thanks to its antioxidant polyphenols. Organic green tea is preferable (nothing undoes positive health effects like a load of pesticides) and can be found in bulk for cheap at large grocery stores.
