How To Lose Weight in 2011 By Eating More Often

Losing weight and improving your fitness can not be separated. There is no doubt that losing those few extra pounds will improve your overall feeling of wellness exponentially. And what I am advocating today is to do something that is completely counter intuitive, but that actually works and is used by many high powered athletes including body builders and top athletes.

Now this isn’t exactly rocket science, and it won’t be the first time somebody has suggested this, but here’s one way you can keep a hold on that tricky ambition of a healthy diet. Try eating at regular intervals.

And not just regular intervals. You should try eating as often as possible. People who are in the body building business often advocate eating at half hour intervals. Now while that may well be a little too extreme for most of us, eating at even two hour intervals is certainly a better plan than the old adage about three square meals a day.

There is a simple reason behind this, although the technique itself might seem a little counter-intuitive. After all, imagine your dietician telling you to eat more often in order to lose weight! The secret lies in the fact that eating at smaller intervals speeds up your body’s metabolism. Not only does it amplify the metabolism, but eating regularly through the day ensures that it stays at that high level throughout.

Another advantage of eating regularly is that you tend to be less hungry. For example, if you just finished a meal a couple of hours ago, you are that much less likely to go in for that cheeseburger. And you are much more likely to go in for a large juicy apple instead.

Keep at it for a few weeks to get your body acclimatized to the new regimen, and you’ll find that you tend to feel not only more active and fresh through the day, but also less hungry. More importantly, you tend to pick up lighter, healthier foods to eat, rather than unhealthy large meals that make you feel sluggish for hours afterwards.

Admittedly, some amount of planning needs to go into this regimen – planning for six meals as opposed to three is not something we tend to do regularly, but that is a small price to pay in the long run.

As mentioned before, it might not be the easiest thing in the world to do at the very beginning. But if you can persevere and have about five to six smaller meals for about a week or so, you find it worth the effort.
Go ahead and give it a try – your body deserves a chance at it.
