What are good mediterranean diet foods?

weight loss cardiff answers:

It depends on what you mean by diet. By definition, a “diet” is anything that an animal eats. If you mean low fat (as most Americans con-notate it) you can probably tell by cooking it. Find any Mediterranean recipe and read through the ingredients and cooking instructions. If it calls for anything fatty (meats, lard, eggs, butter/margarine/shortening, or excessive sugar and oils), then you should try to make as many adjustments as you can. Most people don’t realize just how bad meat is for them and they go their whole lives insisting that they “need the protein”. Truth is, ALL living things contain protein, but only animals contain cholesterol. Eating a *balanced* vegetarian diet will supply all the nutrients you need without all the disgusting fat and cholesterol. Many vegetarians and vegans eat a lot of Mediterranean foods because there are plenty of interesting meat-less options. For the record, vegan/vegetarian is a type of diet. Fat-free, sugar-free, low-fat, etc. Are *weight-loss programs*. One is the way you eat, the other is what you’re depriving yourself of to loose fat.

John asks…

What is the diet that has worked for you to lose weight and what did you do?

I want to be about 120 lbs so I need to lose about 30 lbs. I am 5 ft 4 in tall.
I do not have a lot of money to spend on special diet foods and pills. And I do not have a lot of time to spend killing myself exercising all the time (I have a 2 year old). When it is warm outside I do take walks a lot, pushing my daughter in the stroller but it is hard to do when it is 10-20 degrees outside.

Weight watchers..not expensive, and the group support really helps. But you need to find a group in your area.

Ruth asks…

How long do diet shakes take with replacing 1 meal a day to start losing and noticing changes?

If i was to replace 1 meal a day, say lunch, for a shake, how long would it take for me to lose weight? And also i want to go on a diet, im really good with exercise, i exercise everyday but im a very fussy eater therefor i don’t like much. How am i supposed to eat healthy then if i don’t like the diet foods advertisers tell you to eat?

weight loss cardiff answers:

Some diet shakes are real garbage drinks. They often contain cheap ingredients such as casein (milk protein) or aspartame (a neurotoxin). Counting and reducing calorie intake has been proven to be ineffective over a two year period of time in one scientific study after another. The most popular diets fail time after a period of two years without fail. Most participants end up putting on more weight than they lose.

The only effective way to lose weight in the long run is to change your lifestyle. If you can maintain a low-fat vegan diet you have a chance at permanent weight loss. It also helps to maintain an aerobic exercise program and a free weight exercise training program.

You see, it takes 7 times as many calories to add a pound of muscle than it does a pound of fat. Would you rather gain 7 pounds of fat or 1 pound of sculpting muscle? The muscles cells also burn calories, even when you are resting.
