The Glycemic Index Diet may not seem significant if you are not a diabetic, but lately studies have shown that this particular diet strategy is also a very effective way of losing weight. In fact, it is also one of the best and most recommended weight loss diets presently because it is not just effective but is also very healthy. So if you’re interested in losing weight, perhaps this is the solution you’ve been looking for. But first, what is this diet exactly?
You all know what cabbage is, I’m sure. It might be introduced to you through popular dishes such as coleslaw, sauerkraut, or kimchi.
While we enjoy eating cabbage through our favorite dishes (mine are chopsuey and pansit, by the way), are you aware that this vegetable has more to offer other than vitamins and nutrients?
There are more than 100 varieties of cabbage. Generally, almost all varieties are rich in vitamin C . Known varieties such as bok choy and savoy are good sources of calcium and are known to be cancer fighting foods because of their anti oxidant content.This is, without a doubt, a healthy food that you can always serve your family.
The problem of most people who want to lose weight is the deep desire to lose weight fast. This often leads to unworkable diet goals that deprive themselves from the foods that they enjoy. With this kind of mentality, most people often go back to their usual habits in a matter of a few weeks – gaining more weight instead of losing it.
Weight Loss does not necessarily mean cutting-down on food completely to burn body fats. Did you know that the few pounds you lost from your “lose weight fast” program might be coming from your muscles? Muscles have a large impact when it comes to losing weight. If you are not aware about this, let me emphasize that your muscle is responsible in burning more than 50 percent of fat in your body.
The main key in losing weight is to eat more food. However, some of the foods that you need to eat might not be the usual food in your regular diet. I am talking about healthy foods that are high in fiber and low in fat.
You have several choices when it comes to the food that you need to eat. Foods that are low in fat, high in fiber and high in water content are the ones that you should be eating.
