Healthy Weight Loss – How To Be Permanently Healthy & Slim

The definition of healthy weight loss means, at least to me, that you are striving to reduce the pounds/kilos at the same time as aiming for good health, preferably in a reasonable time. Many diets may help you lose weight, but can be chronically unhealthy, much too fast and rarely permanent.

The definition of diet, at least in the weight loss arena, has become synonymous with restriction and often starvation. It doesn’t have to be this way and it shouldn’t be this way.

First you need to understand what the weight loss is for. For example, if you are above a healthy range for your height, this is very different from if you want to have a figure like a cat-walk model.

Being in excess of your healthy weight can lead to health issues sooner or later. But health is not just about your weight. It’s also about what you eat, how you are, how you react to difficulties in your life, what type of medical care you use, how much exercise you do and so on.

However, your diet is an important key area to both your weight and your health.

If you are overweight then you need to change your lifestyle, as it is this that has lead to your weight problem. This is good news as your lifestyle change should lead you to better health as well as weight loss.

Even if you are striving for having a model like figure, you should still try to be healthy.

Many (perhaps most) people believe that humans have a high need for protein. Certainly, humans, like any other animal, need protein. But humans were not designed to eat animal protein. You only have to look at our facial profile, our teeth, our saliva pH, our hands and nails, our intestinal length, our stomach acidity to appreciate that this is the case.

Compare all these issues with say, a dog. We are both omnivores, but humans are at the herbivore end and dogs are at the carnivore end.

The fact is that plants also contain protein. Each plant varies this a little, but if you consume a wide variety of plant based foods, your protein levels will be optimal at around 10%.

THIS IS ALL HUMANS NEED!

Any higher that 10-ish% and your health deteriorates, with the possibility of cancer. Yes, your diet can be the leading cause of cancer, although other causes, such as health care and unresolved emotional issues can also trigger it.

As if that isn’t enough, cooked meat is even worse for human health and barbequed meat is the greatest offender. Carcinogenic agents develop from roasting animal fat. Cooked food is also much slower to digest, often leading to gastro-intestinal problems.

However, ALL animal protein is not only damaging to our health, it can also be the main cause of excess weight.

Healthy weight loss need to be a permanent part of your lifestyle. But, you may not be able to get there all in one step. You may need to take a series of steps to achieve your goal. Here you can find more information on the best foods to eat for both health and optimal weight, regardless of your body or blood type.

To help you with any emotional difficulties and/or any current health issues, homeopathy is probably the best way you can deal with these.

Foods Containing Magnesium

Magnesium is an incredibly important nutrient needed by the body to work efficiently. While taking a magnesium supplement can help those depleted in this essential mineral in the short term, it can set up problems when taken over an extended period.
