Eat Yourself Slim
The theory behind slimming is relatively straight forward to
understand. As you take in food from your daily diet, you gain nutrients
and energy. If you burn off more energy in a day than your diet can
provide, your body taps into its supply of fat to give you the extra
energy needed to function properly. Over time, the fat levels contained
within your body will be depleted - causing a reduction in the size of
the arms, legs and a slimmer waist line.
In order to promote this process to its maximum you must consider a
number of areas. The amount of exercise or physical activity you
undertake each week must be increased to burn off excess energy and fat
from the body. Unlike bodybuilding routines, you are not trying to gain
more muscle size or strength and so the exercises you perform don't need to be anywhere near
A second point which needs consideration is the exact types of foods
we need to eat and which foods we need to leave out. For example, the
milk you buy may need to change from Whole Milk to a Semi-skimmed
variety. Cheeses will need to be changed to low-fat soft cheese and
butter, greasy foods, sugary foods, syrups, jams, white bread and white
flour should be avoided altogether. The section on Eating to Develop
will give you a list of the positive and negative foods available.
If you are serious about a slimming diet, you may wish to look into
the following areas:
Consider just how much weight you want to loose and maintain a
sensible healthy diet until your goal is reached.
Choose a selection of exercises which you will be happy to perform
three times a week. These should centre on the areas of the body
you specifically want to slim - without promoting muscle growth
or size as this will severely increase your bodyweight. Help with
this subject can be found in the Specific Help section.
Try to find a good calorie chart which will show you which foods
contain what calories. This will help you choose your meals and
protect you from choosing high calorie foods. A list of good meals
can be found in the Healthy Eating Diets section. These meals are
recommended because they have in-built discipline and will leave you
safe in the knowledge that the low-calories and nutrients you need
you a healthy diet will be provided.
