Do you want to shed those extra pounds of yours and improve your health? Dieting combined with exercise may be the option for you. But the emphasis in most of today's diets is placed on reducing carbohydrates and fat intake, by choosing sub-optimal sources for protein, which is a primary nutrient.
The Greenwich Diet can be the perfect solution. It is a meal plan designed to change your metabolism so you feel less hungry for all the foods that makes you get fat. As your metabolism increases, your body will become more efficient at burning fat so you will begin to lose those excess pounds more quickly.
You should increase your protein intake, which elevates the basal metabolism by about twenty-five percent. This can be achieved by eating fish, whey protein, whole eggs or egg whites, skim milk, lean steak, and chicken breast. Avoid Foods that are high in carbohydrates like pasta and rice. Eat only fibrous complex carbohydrates: Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, lettuce, celery, spinach, onions, and cucumber. In addition, you should supplement your diet with two to three servings of whey protein, which is a by-product of cheese manufacturing. It acts as an energy source for someone who is dieting and exercising.
Even fruits are not recommended in excessive amounts on this diet. Because something is natural does not mean that it is good for you. Fruits are high in sugar, which can cause diabetes and obesity. But high-fiber vegetables such as salad vegetables, carrots and spinach are good for you. The golden health rule - drinking water, can help you in your efforts to lose weight. People of all ages need to drink plenty of plain water since it is an essential nutrient. Unfortunately, even health conscious people often overlook sufficient amounts of water.
As in any good weight control program, exercise is also associated with the Greenwich Diet.
This program is actually more of a healthy life style than it is a diet. When you follow this program you will know what to eat and what to avoid, thus increasing your metabolism.
The key for a successful weight loss is not just the diet itself, but actually FOLLOWING THE DIET! All diets work, but very few people are able to follow any diet, even just for a short period of time. That's because the major problem faced by someone who needs to lose weight is that they cannot control their eating habits and appetite.
Appetite can be suppressed by taking appetite suppressant pills. But pills can be dangerous, and all of them have negative side effects. And besides, once you stop taking the pills, you'll pile the weight back on because you haven't dealt with your appetite at its source. So to lose weight, you'll have to find a way to adhere to the diet. To enjoy a permanent weight loss, you need to learn how to train your mind to ENJOY sticking to your plan.
In 1958 the AMA approved hypnosis as an effective method for dealing with stress related symptoms like overeating. You may believe that hypnosis is just a trick done in a stage show in which a hypnotist is demonstrating his or her powers before the audience. But actually hypnosis can provide the motivation to keep you moving in the direction of your weight loss goals. And it can enable you to escape many of the barriers that get in the way of losing weight. Weight loss through hypnosis is the perfect tool for re-educating your unconscious mind - the part that creates cravings and impulses. Hypnosis CDs can give you back the inner strength to make the proper choices about what you eat.
Although hypnosis is sometimes referred to as a method of treatment, it can be regarded as a facilitator of a number of different treatment methods for weight loss through
hypnosis. The hypnotic state is characterized by heightened concentration, suggestibility, and relaxation.
Permanent weight loss only occurs with a change in lifestyle and not just a change in diet. Hypnotism for weight loss can help you make those changes, quickly and more easily than you ever imagined possible. Hypnosis weight loss is not just about solving problems and changing unwanted habits. You can also develop new, more useful behaviors, such as improved concentration, greater confidence or stronger motivation.
One-way to obtain hypnotherapy weight loss help is to go to a professional hypnotist, which usually costs around 200 to 300 dollars for a single hour. A popular alternative is to order a weight loss hypnosis CD from a reputable, certified consulting hypnotist.
A good pre-recorded program will start out with a session that explains the misconceptions about hypnotism for weight loss, and how self-hypnosis actually works. Since everyone is different, it will then provide several different self-hypnosis weight loss sessions, and each session will use a variety of different hypnotic techniques. Hypnosis weight management programs are available for as little as 25 to 30 dollars. So CDs are more affordable, and they can be a viable substitute to visiting a hypnotist.
Conclusion: All diets work if you can stick to them. Some diets, like the Greenwich Diet by Dr. Carlon M. Colker, MD, are better than others at providing the nutrients necessary for an increased metabolism. The Greenwich Diet can be easier to stick with because it is more of a lifestyle than a diet.
Self-hypnosis weight loss
can eliminate your cravings and compulsions, and provide the motivation you need to keep moving in the direction of your weight loss goals, and attain them quickly and safely.
