Healthy and safe dieting

by Ojars Rubenis

Quite often dieting, starvation and popping weight loss pills are considered to be equal. It's completely wrong opinion. Dieting and weight loss can be pleasant and relatively easy achievable. Still the most effective and healthy weight method is a combination of healthy diet and exercises.

Also healthy diet by providing appropriate nutrients will make your body resistant to illnesses and will strengthen your immune system. Apart from that you'll be able to shed the excess fat safely. This method is called natural weight loss.

The main condition of well balanced diet is to include carbohydrates, high-quality protein, and healthy fats rich nutrients. Example bellow will show how many of each nutrient you have to ingest if you're on 1500 calorie diet.


Fats must make about 20% (or 325 calories) of the daily calorie intake. They must come from good fats: wild cold-water fish, walnuts, flaxseed etc. These give fatty acid called Omega 3 which is necessary for your health.


375 calories or about 20-30% should come from "wild" (not processed or farm rose) animal sources such as meat, yogurt, poultry, fish and eggs and from vegetables, whole grains, fruits, seeds and nuts.


These make the main part of your calorie intake or about 40-60%. Cut out or restrict these products which contribute to weight gain and add nothing to health: soda-pop, desserts, candies, white flour and ice creams. Instead use vitamin, amino acid and fibre rich products: whole grain cereal, oatmeal, fruits, vegetables, whole grain breads.

General comments:

Olive Oil: Olive oil is a good fat and brings to the body number of benefits. Spinach: Spinach is rich in folic acid, minerals, and vitamins and this is the cheapest source of nutrition for your body. Use this product in your diet as often as possible. Fish: Replace meat with fish at least 2-3 times a week. Fish usually has fewer calories, high in protein, low in fat and it is Omega 3 rich.

Remember that with having a healthy diet you increase the quality of your life significantly. Natural weight loss is the best and safest way to lose weight.
