Slim Down and Eat Healthier By Making Intelligent Food Substitutions

Who wouldn’t want to kill two birds with one stone? By following a nutritional program of food substitution you will be able to do just that. I also promise that you will never be hungry, and always satisfied.

The implementation of my food substitution program will enable you to eat to your heart’s content, and simultaneously rebuild your health and slim down. By making intelligent food substitutions it is possible to ‘have your cake and eat it too.’

This food substitution program is a family affair. Explain to your children that you are putting in place a new eating program which will not only make them healthy, but won’t sacrifice 롤대리 taste. But you do it first. Children look to their parents for guidance and living examples. And healthy eating patterns should always begin in the home.

The theory behind this program is really quite simple. You merely swap bad food choices with good food choices. How you choose to implement this program is up to you. You can elect to substitute one food item at a time, or everything all at once. The important thing is to start right away.

The very first substitution that should be made is water, and in lesser quantities, 100 percent fruit juice, for soft drinks. Carbonated soft drinks are America’s biggest source of calories. The typical American gets 7 percent of his total daily calories from soft drinks. Soft drink consumption reached its peak in 1998 with the average American drinking 56.1 gallons!

Teenagers get upwards of 13 percent of their daily caloric requirements from carbonated and noncarbonated soft drinks. The average boy in the years 1977 through 1978 drank more than twice as much milk as soft drinks; girls drank 50 percent more milk.

The consumption of ‘liquid candy’ fuels this nations spiraling obesity epidemic. The over-consumption of liquid candy also brings about a significant reduction in vitamin, mineral, and fiber intake.

The artificial ingredients in many of these soft drink products negatively affect health. Research has shown that artificial colorings, especially yellow dye number 5, promotes ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) in some children.

The average American does not drink enough water. The human body is approximately 65 percent water. Not only is water necessary for many metabolic functions, it is also instrumental in transporting fat and deadly toxins out of the body.

Water is essential for weight loss. Add 100 percent fruit juice to your diet along with water. Avoid fruit drinks, and other liquid candies disguised as healthy alternatives.

Substitute sweet potatoes for white potatoes. Surprisingly, the body metabolizes white potatoes exactly as it does sugar. The result is the same too. It raises blood sugar, and gets stored as fat. Sweet potatoes are a much healthier alternative. They are loaded with fiber and beta-carotene, an antioxidant.

If you don’t have any blood sugar issues, you may cut down on eating white potatoes without completely eliminating them. If however you are diabetic or prediabetic, eliminate white potatoes entirely!
