Whenever you begin a program for weight loss, you have to decide the type of weight loss menus you want to follow. There are millions of diets; some quirky ones allow you only to consume a specific substance such as grapefruit, and but traditional types such as low carbohydrate diets, low fat diets or low calorie diets, tend to be the most logical choice.
Example Weight Loss Menu:
1 package of plain instant oatmeal (using water)
1/2 cup of skim milk
1 Tablespoon of raisins or chopped dates
1 Tablespoon muscovado (unprocessed brown sugar) or honey. (You can use stevia or xylitol as substitutes. In that case, sweeten to taste.)
1/2 cup of orange juice
1 container of flavoured low calorie yoghurt
1 cup of vegetable soup in chicken or beef broth
Sandwich made with 1 slice of bread and 6 slices of thin sliced turkey or ham and 1 slice of low calorie cheese. Top the sandwich with a slice of tomato, and a teaspoon of yellow mustard.
Water, coffee or tea (Studies show low calorie diet drinks may make you gain weight. Water is the best choice.)
2 Stalks of celery stuffed with
1 Tbsp. Natural Creamy Peanut Butter
1/4 pound serving salmon with pepita-lime
1/2 cup steamed vegetables
1/2 cup wild rice
Dessert or Evening Snack
3/4 cup of poached fruit with meringue topping
The theory behind the traditional diets isn't magic. You simply consume less food or intake food that produces lower amounts of energy you convert to fat. If you're on a low fat diet, you still need some fat in your diet to maintain bodily functions. The same is true for a low carbohydrate diet. Low carbohydrate doesn't mean 'no carbohydrate.' Weight loss menus that are low in carbohydrates simply eliminates starchy vegetables and replaces it with fruits and vegetables abundant in nutrients but lower in carbohydrates. Of course, existing on a diet that has no calories is fasting and not recommended for any length of time.
