Simple Weight Loss – Diet Plans For Easy Weight Loss

Is there a simple weight loss method that doesn’t require a lot of complicated rules or counts calories, grams or anything? Here’s the thing about weight loss: yes, it can be simple, if you can decide which approach works best for you.

When it comes to losing weight and dieting to lose body fat, there are basically three ways to go about it. Before we get into the details, think about junk food for a moment. Things like cakes, chips, donuts, tortilla chips, etc. are foods that everyone agrees are fattening and not the best foods to eat. Now, what do all of these things have in common?

Each type of junk food is high in carbohydrates and fats, as well as low in protein. This high carbohydrate and high fat combination is what junk food is. When it comes to losing weight, almost all diets avoid or reduce foods with this combination high in carbohydrates and fats. That’s why all diet plans are low fat, low carb, or low calorie.

If you choose to go the low-calorie route, it can get messy. The idea here is to eat fewer calories than you expend. The only problem? It’s nearly impossible to know for sure how many calories you’re eating or how many you’re using.

For example, you can look at all sorts of charts to find out how many calories are in a medium banana. But what is a “medium” banana? If you see two bananas and one is bigger than the other, which is “medium”? And what about the ripeness of the banana? As bananas ripen, they acquire a higher sugar content, which changes the calorie count. So what is the average?

You can also view fancy graphs to see how many calories you’re burning when you walk, run, or do other physical activities. The only problem? People of different weights and different intensity levels will have different calorie expenditure. So what is the average?

This doesn’t even take into account the problem of how the human body tends to conserve energy. Since body fat is a form of stored energy, the body tends to retain body fat when the calorie count gets too low.

The specific mechanisms of this are beyond the scope of this article, but the point is this: low-calorie diets seem to make sense, but they don’t always work, and they’re very difficult to follow. Of course, they are not simple.

For a simple diet, the way to go is either low fat or low carb. Personally, I have found low carb to be far superior to low fat, due to the fact that the mechanism for our body to store body fat is triggered by carbohydrate consumption, but not by the consumption of fats in the diet.

It may sound counter-intuitive, but that’s how our bodies work. The big advantage of a low carb diet is that it can be a very, very simple weight loss plan and an easy way to eat. Usually there is no counting of calories and little or no counting of grams of protein, fat or even carbohydrates.

It just depends on the low carb diet you are following. But whether it’s low carb or low fat, for a simple diet, these are the ways to go.
