Help with that New Year’s resolutionBy Health News Team • Dec 26th, 2008 • Category: Blood Sugar, Diet, True Health News, Weight Loss
People who plan to make their annual weight-loss resolution for New Year’s may want to simply change their diet instead of spending hours in a sweaty gym.
Adding low glycemic foods into one’s diet can facilitate weight loss, as well as help people keep the weight off, BestSyndication.com reports.
Low glycemic foods take longer to break down carbohydrates than high glycemic foods, and because of that people stay "full" longer, according to the article. This allows people to eat less and not feel hungry, as some may when they start new diets.
Diabetics may also want to turn to a whole food diet of low glycemic foods as it also assists in maintaining blood sugar at a consistent level.
These foods also prevent the body from taking extra carbohydrates and storing them as fat for later.
Foods that are in this category include nuts, seeds, fruits and vegetables. Fish and chicken can also be included in a well-balanced diet, though one must be careful about certain spices or marinating techniques.
People who have trouble sticking to a strict diet may be interested in natural supplements, which can also offer ways to lose weight.
