How to Diet Without Losing Flavor

2020 hasn’t been our year.

Well, what if finally, somebody levelled with you and told you that if you really do want to hit that diet, it doesn’t have to be as boring as most people on Facebook would have you believe. While you may have a vision in your head that dieting equals lots of salad or some crazy fad that some insane person has created, that is not the case.

As you may have guessed, all these fads and advertisements you see on Facebook and Instagram are nonsense, in truth, losing weight can be easy. So, let’s take a look at how you can lose weight the easy way without having to sacrifice flavor and all the things that you love.

Calories In vs. Calories Out

Ok, so let’s start with the basics, if you want to lose weight, it’s all about moderation and being sensible.

The thing about losing weight is, it’s all about science. Many people count calories but don’t understand why so here’s the gist of things. Your body needs a standard amount of calories per day to function; if you have surplus calories, you gain weight; if you have a caloric deficit, you lose weight. Caloric deficit simply works by the body breaking down the fat cells when it runs out of calories, and then you lose weight.

So, if you want to lose weight, simply cut the calories. If you want to feel healthier, cut the calories, the fat and some sugars and you are well on your way.

Get Creative

Now we know that you can pretty much eat anything when dieting, you just need to exercise your creative bones in the kitchen.

If you want pizza, change the base to a flatbread, if you fancy a snack with tons of flavor, why not check out something like this baba ganoush from ToriAvey.comIf you want chocolate, have a piece of chocolate. If you want some delicious curry, have the curry. You simply have to remember that it’s a matter of not overindulging and counting your calories on one of many apps. Doing this will allow you to monitor your caloric deficit and set yourself goals.

In truth, dieting is a lot easier than the media would have you believe, this is simply due to the fact that people want to make money from your needs. 

Hopefully, this post has armed you with some handy information that can help you should you want to start a weight loss journey and not have to sacrifice flavor along the way.
