5 Do's and Don'ts of Dieting

By Edited Oct 27, 2013 1 0

Do Stock Your Kitchen With Healthy Food

If it's in your house, you're going to eat it whether it is good or bad. So stock up on healthy foods that you like - try yogurt, eggs, fruits, vegetables, fish, and white meat chicken and turkey. To curb impulse purchases, make a shopping list and don't go to the grocery store when you are hungry.

Don't Buy Refined Sugars

That means any packaged treats - cookies, candy, cake, pie, etc. Bite the bullet and cut them from your diet for a week and see how you feel. You may be surprised to find how good and healthy you feel.

Do Use Weight Loss Supplements Only As Directed

Weight loss pills are often used in conjunction with a diet. If you decide to take a weight loss supplement, follow all directions and only use as directed.

Don't Eat Out Everyday

Especially fast food that has little nutrients and that's high in fat! Furthermore, restaurant portions are grotesquely oversized, so you will likely eat far more than you would at home.

Do Get Enough Sleep

Did you know sleep deprivation can actually lead to weight gain? When you don't get enough sleep, your body produces an excess of Ghrelin, a hormone in the stomach that increases hunger. In addition, it produces less Leptin, the hormone that causes satiety.
