How Good Are Low Calorie Diets?
The thought of food is usually a great comfort to most of us, while the idea of dieting to lose weight is somewhat annoying. However, we know that bodies that build up fat around vital organs are a disaster. A fatty liver, for example, can lead to cancer while other organs, such as the heart, can suddenly fail. Recent tests confirmed that my pancreas has fat induction and this scares me as my sister recently died of pancreatic cancer.
Even so, the thought of dieting is still terrifying. It doesn’t help to think that so many overweight people have to face the same dilemma. It’s a matter of willpower and health-related self-discipline, and yet something rebels against it.
Low-calorie foods are always in my freezer so I don’t have to prepare such meals myself. This helps as they are generally delicious and require very little prep. The question is how good they are in the long run.
On the advice of others, eliminating sugar from my diet has shed a few pounds. Salt is another non-essential when preparing my own meals. However, living in a cold climate is part of my problem, along with the fact that sitting at a computer for hours and typing is extremely weight-inducing.
In recent months, a gym has proven to be a healthy alternative, and disciplining myself to walk every day if possible is yielding some results. However, only through dieting can I ever hope to shed the fat, and an understanding of low calorie eating is the only way to do that. My research shows that on the whole they are pretty inexpensive and a good alternative to stick with.
