Easy Diet Plans That Will Help Get You Started
Easy Diet Plans
When starting out on a fat loss program, some easy diet plans are just what you need.
It can be difficult enough to re-arrange your whole life, and a habit is a powerful thing, I understand.
As far as diet plans there can be a huge difference between simple and easy:
Eat less.That’s simple. But maybe not so easy.
So what are the easiest ways to drop weight, the best methods to help you change your diet and lifestyle habits?
Here are the two most effective–and easiest– diet methods I know
I’ve come up with two truly easy diet plans, and if there’s anything better then I have not heard of it yet. If you know of something, please let me know.
In the meantime, try these:
1. Smart Carbs
The Smart Carb Approach is the very first step in the first Level of my fitness and fat loss product, the TS Method. It’s really quite easy, and simple too: You replace all carbohydrates in your diet with what I call Smart Carbs: Cruciferous Vegetables and Legumes.
Here is a short list on each.
These Smart Carbs can taste absolutely great, and you simply use them to replace other, fattening carbohydrates:
out with the potatoes, in with the cauliflower. Out with the pasta, have low sugar baked beans instead. Switch white rice for brown or green lentils, etc.
That’s all! It’s easy, and it works.
2. Short Term Fasting
I only started to make true progress into the sub 10% body fat levels when I integrated short term fasting into my diet plan. Brad Pilon is a guy from Canada who studied intermittent fasting as a graduate at Guelph University in Ontario. He actually based all his work on real scientific research, and he came up with a rather unusual approach to losing weight: short-term fasting.
His book, Eat Stop Eat has made some waves in the diet world, mainly I guess because it works.
|The idea is to not eat any calories for something like 18-24 hours at a stretch, every other day, or just twice per week, with at least one day in between fasts. So it’s more about a weekly calorie deficit than a daily one.|
I’m using a different technique at the moment, but I have used this one –eat stop eat style– for a long time very successfully. It’s really easy, much easier than it seems. I guess one reason is because once you’re carb depleted, you don’t really feel hungry at all.
I have to admit that the short term fasts were a bit difficult to begin with!
I must say in the beginning it sure took some getting used to!
This is probably more out of habit than anything else. But after a while you start to appreciate the increased energy and clarity resulting from short fasts. Not to speak of the rapid fat loss.
Intermittent Fasting has a lot of other benefits apart from accelerated Fat Burning
Sounds obvious, but think about it: you’re trained to eat from early childhood, every day and all the time. So now you realize it doesn’t have to be that way.
Meals start to actually taste way better than in a long time, and you really learn to be grateful for your food. At least that’s how it was for me.
There’s tons of other benefits of intermittent fasting, HGH production gets a boost, detoxification is increased, aging is slowed. All in all, definitely something worth considering.
Here is a video where the guy explains how fasting is quite similar to exercise in many ways
So for a truly easy diet plan, as a first step try just having a bunch of cruciferous vegetables instead of refined carbohydrates. Another thing these veggies do is stuff you up like nobody’s business! It’s hard to have a binge-attack if you’re just plain too full to eat, not even a morsel? Forget it!
And when you’re ready for the big leagues, try no food until dinner. That’s usually a 20+ hours fast depending when you had your last calories the day before.
