Weight loss is one of the most popular fitness goals out there. Make sure you’re doing it safely and properly with our dedicated articles.

Which Dieting method is for me?

Dieting. What is the best?

If you are here it is probably because you have tried dieting in the past and for some reason it has not worked for you. So here I will post about two different less commonly known diets and how each one works with details of the pros and cons of each to give you a more educated view on your next potential diet. Mainly this is because we all know that not everyone is the same, people have different tastes, different lifestyles and therefore not everyone’s diet will also be the same.

Atkins Diet.

The first diet is one which not everyone may have heard of but it is called the Atkins nutritional diet.  This diet focuses on the body’s insulin levels by trying to restrict the amount of carbohydrates entering the body.  With most people when the body takes in carbohydrates the bodies insulin levels increase and from this the amount of energy that is stored also increases. Therefore, by restricting the amount of carbs you take in this enables the body to not store excess energy which allows you to eat more foods containing protein and fats.


By this diet only restricting one food group ( carbs) this allows you to eat all the other types of foods which are usually restricted in most diets such as cheese, meat and other high fat foods. Which we all can say is a big big bonus.

Another perk to using this diet is how you can eat whenever you want as long as the food is in the permitted group. This mean no more long breaks between food and you can just eat when your body is hungry. No more need to be Hangry.

If you are someone whose suffers from Type 2 diabetes. Studies have shown that by having a more regulated insulin function this can help reduce and even sometimes reverse the effects of Type 2 diabetes by ” Controlling symptoms of metabolic syndrome.”


Unfortunately like most things there can be drawbacks.

The first major thing which I will get out of the way first is the drop out level. Even for a diet which only removes one food group plenty of people choose not to stick to this diet and will move onto something new. Therefore if you are someone who struggles keeping your diet in check this might not be the best thing for you.

The Atkins diet is more of a  diet that is aimed at the short term. With the diet basically changing normal metabolic behaviour in the short term of less then 6 months this diet is one which shows the most weight lost. However if this is a diet you want to try for the long term understand that after 6 months the weight loss will be minimal and it may be best to slowly transition your way to another form of weight loss.

The Zone Diet.

This diet is one in which you might need your pen and paper out for this one.

So the Zone diet is one in which you need to calculate all the nutritional information of all the items you eat. 40% Carbs 30% fats and 30% protein. Now what this diet does is that it match’s your own bodily functions so like the Atkins diet it helps regulate your insulin levels in order to give you a more successful weight loss regime.


This diet gives a better more ” balanced ” diet as there is not one specific food group that is restricted. This means that even though certain foods would have to be eaten in small less frequent occasions it is still possible to do so if done correctly. So if you are someone who will just not give up chocolate you do not have to.

This diet is more universal as you do not have to have any animal products to meet your protein level. Therefore if you are vegetarian or vegan or just don’t particularly like animal products you do not have to. However  word of warning some of the top brands in vegetarian food do have a very high carbohydrate level, and even some would have too high a level for this diet. Therefore this is something to look out for.


Now I bet some of you have just scrolled past this bit as I have said it requires some tracking. Unfortunately this is one of them diets when you have to read all the packaging in order to correctly figure out your allowance for each meal. Even something as a snack will require calculations. So if you are someone who does not want to be reading and solving maths problems just to eat I would not recommend this diet.

Now If you don’t mind getting your calculator out from time to time another negative to this diet is how you are not restricted to a particular food group. However you are restricted to certain items within each category. For example with proteins you are more then welcome to eat chicken breasts and other lean pale meats, but if you are a big fan of steak or other organ meats ( yes not steak and kidney pies) then these are not foods which would help this diet.

Dieting as a whole.

I know some of you who have go to this bit may be sceptical about trying a new diet, or one which is not as common as some others. I would ALWAYS recommend that if one of these diets is something you are planning on going for please check with your doctor first as they would be able to give a more educated and personal recommendation rather then just a blog on a website.

Just think reading up on this is the first step on achieving your goal.

Stay safe everyone.

Eight decisions to lose fat without losing muscle

Weight loss is all about losing fat, yet the process of losing weight can lead to loss of muscle, which is the last thing we want, and in this article are eight decisions to lose flab and keep the muscle.

Nocturnal reduction of carbohydrates

Strength training requires glycogen from carbohydrates to provide energy. However, consuming carbohydrates at night after 8pm increases the chances of the body storing fat. Because.
1. the body burns only a small number of calories at rest and the body’s metabolic level is lowered when you sleep.
2. The body releases more insulin after consuming carbohydrates in the evening and high levels of insulin increase fat reserves.

Properly scheduled weekly cardio training

1. Do only 3 cardio workouts per week. Cardio is best scheduled before breakfast, as your body will have to use fat reserves instead of carbohydrates for energy if you don’t eat.
2 Keep your strength training to 30 minutes or less.

Slightly more fibre in the diet

A moderate intake of fibre helps to reduce fat. Fibre can
1 impede the digestion and absorption of carbohydrates.
2. slow down the rate of entry of sugar molecules into the bloodstream contributing to the

reduction of insulin release
3. High insulin is a signal for cells to store fat Reducing the amount of insulin released facilitates the prevention of obesity.

Eat fish to increase muscle size

Eating fish can increase muscle mass and reduce body fat because fish is high in beneficial fats.
Cold water fish (such as frogfish) provide omega-3 fatty acids which make muscles more sensitive to insulin (muscle responsiveness to insulin facilitates muscle building and fat loss).
In addition, this fish promote

s glycogen stores and amino acids into the muscles. Eating frogfish 3 times a week also helps with glutamine stores and you will get a good supply of omega-3 fatty acids.

Practice strength training twice a day

1 Strength training, provided it is not excessive, allows the body to produce hormones and enzymes that promote muscle growth and fat loss. You can make the most of this training twice a day.
2 High-frequency stimulation twice a day promotes glycogen depletion, thus preventing calories from being stored as fat.

Cycling high and low calorie intake

Reducing your calorie intake will help to reduce body fat but will also reduce muscle mass. To prevent this you can follow a low calorie diet for 3 days and then a high calorie diet on the 4th day. You may lose some muscle during these 3 days and can take supplements (such as branched chain amino acids) to prevent muscle damage. Here is a simple formula for consuming 50% of your usual calorie intake on the low calorie day and adding 30% to your usual intake on the high calorie day. For example, reduce from 300g to 150g for three days and then increase to 390g.

Rational allocation of carbohydrate intake

To reduce body fat without reducing carbohydrate intake then you add up all the carbohydrates you consume on a day and assume it is 300g then consume 30% (90g) each at breakfast and at the post training meal and divide the remaining 120g equally between the remaining 4 meals. This is because the body has the least chance of storing calories as fat when you get up in the morning and after training. This is when blood sugar and liver sugar levels are low and most of the calories are used for “recovery” work.

Low fat diet

The three main causes of body fat gain are excessive calorie intake, excessive fat in the diet and excessive carbohydrate intake.
If the previous 7 tips don’t have the desired effect then you will have to resort to this last trick which is to directly reduce the amount of fat in your diet. The only way to do this for bodybuilders is to choose fat-free proteins such as egg whites, fish and high-protein powders, and then add a little more fat to your diet after 6-7 days. This will increase the amount of fat in your diet and also provide essential fatty acids – one of the essential substances for growth.

Recipes for fat loss and muscle building

There is a saying in fitness circles that 30 per cent depends on

exercise and 70 per cent on diet.

Therefore, a proper diet is of vital importance. The following set is my summary of the choices available for different types of food:
Good carbs (the most important part of a muscle building diet) : Corn (my favorite), whole wheat bread, potatoes, brown rice, quinoa, oats, beans, pasta.

Protein (increase the secretion of insulin, promote muscle protein synthesis rate) : chicken breast, beef, fish (salmon, cod, tuna longley, autumn fish), shrimp, eggs, soy products, dairy products

Vegetables (source of dietary fiber, simple carbohydrates, I think green is a vegetable, just feel like a vegetable) : Broccoli, okra, asparagus, cabbage heart, various lettuce, lettuce, bitter gourd

Fruit (I think the sour and watery fruit is fruit, feel rich in VC, don’t like melons) : oranges, kiwi, blueberries, bananas (instant energy), grapefruit, pineapple, berries

High quality fats (fat is a very important nutrient, which plays an important role in normal metabolism and hormone regulation, and can be properly consumed during training and avoided within two hours after training) : olive oil, nuts (walnuts, almonds, cashews, pumpkin seeds, peanuts), sesame paste, peanut butter, avocado, cheese

Cooking methods: boiled, mixed, steamed, oven, fried without oil, just follow the principle of less oil, less salt and less sugar.

Try to choose these condiments.
1、Thinly salted soy sauce bottle solves all
2、Black pepper you deserve
3, a variety of salad dressings – put a small amount


Losing weight is not a matter of seeing someone else’s perfect body and eating one or two less meals and going to the gym to do a few sets on a whim. Rather, it’s about making it a habit. This is how you achieve results and keep them up.



Consult your physician, doctor or other professional before starting any exercise or nutrition program. This is especially important for people over the age of 35 or those with pre-existing health problems. In accordance with our advice, is not responsible for any personal injury or property damage caused.

If you experience dizziness, nausea, chest pain or any other unusual symptoms, stop exercising immediately and consult your doctor immediately.

Here are some important tips:

– What to eat:

A balanced diet is the key to a healthy diet with stable weight loss. When preparing meals make sure your plate contains proteins at least one meal a day, carbohydrates, minerals, fibre and vitamins. Fill your plate up with plenty of vegetables in order to feel satisfied. Aim to cut down saturated fat and prepare meals with a little salt.

– Which foods to avoid:

Foods that are high in calories are best to avoid, such as oil. It is very easy to go over your calories when cooking with oil. Therefore, the best alternative is ‘spray oil’ this will help to keep count of your calories.

– Don’t drink your calories!

A forgotten source of calories, are drinks. Drinks are often packed with calories and sugar. Always check the calories to make sure.

When drinking a lot of sugar beverages, can increase your hunger and add unnecessary calories.

It is best to save these calories for something more filling.

Tea and coffee are great to drink when dieting, they are healthy and low in calories. They also stop cravings. However, avoid adding sugar as only one spoon has 16 calories in it. This may not sound like a lot but when drinking a few cups, a day the calories add up.

– Drink plenty of water:

Not only does water help a person stay hydrated but it also speeds up metabolism and helps avoid feeling hungry.

Use a refillable water bottle which you can sip from throughout the day.

-Weigh food and count calories:

When weighing food makes counting calories easier and more precise.

Don’t forget you are not limited there are always alternatives for certain foods with lower calories, just remember to always check the label when shopping.

When on a diet consistency is the key. If you have a one-off day or a cheat meal, don’t worry, don’t give up and carry on where you last left off.

You don’t have to choose diet meals, you can easily lose weight by eating like this every day

Summer is just around the corner and it’s time to show off your figure again. After the festive, food-filled Christmas and Chinese New Year, is weight loss in the front row of your New Year’s resolutions? “Even if you eat and drink in moderation, it is inevitable that you will gain weight during the festive season and the Chinese New Year when you eat and drink a lot.

At this time of year, many people choose to work out or control their diet by eating high protein and low-fat foods every day, eating only chicken breasts and fruit and vegetables, and staying away from fried foods and sweets.

The complete adherence to a healthy meal diet is undoubtedly very disturbing to people, because very often a low-calorie diet simply does not satisfy the desire to eat, and people wonder, what is the best way to lose weight even if I eat normally most of the time? At this point, many people may think of the world’s most popular diet in recent years – light fasting

What is “light fasting” dieting?

Light fasting is intermittent fasting and can take several forms.

● Intraday fasting: eating normally for only 8 hours of the day and fasting for the other 16 hours.

●Fast of the week: 2 days of the week, usually non-consecutive days, with the calorie intake limited to 500 kcal and 5 days of normal eating.

●Fast of the Month: 3 non-consecutive days of fasting in a month, with the calorie intake limited to 500kcal on these 3 days and normal eating on the other days.

The most appealing aspect of light fasting is that it claims that you don’t have to control your diet and count calories every day and that you can eat whatever you want during the so-called “normal eating” days, whether it’s a dinner party or a high-calorie snack, you can “eat without fear”. These accumulated problems of blood sugar, blood lipids, and weight gain can be solved with a few “fasting days”.Light fasting also has risks,For example:
1. Prone to rebound
Light fasting, in fact, is also a kind of dieting, all need to adhere to a relatively long period of time, and if you stop dieting, the weight may rebound and aggravate.
2. prone to hypoglycemia
Many people will experience dizziness, weakness in the limbs, fatigue, low mood, ease to get anger, lack of concentration, and other problems after taking a light fasting diet. This will also be a big detriment to your work efficiency.
3. Light fasting is not suitable for special groups of people
Not everyone is suitable for light fasting, such as high blood sugar, low blood sugar, low blood pressure, the elderly, malnourished people are not suitable, blindly using light fasting, can aggravate the condition, or even bring serious consequences. For example, if your BMI is below 20 or you are already malnourished, it would be unwise to restrict your nutritional intake at this time.
The current research on light fasting is basically in 2-3 months, and the effect and safety of light fasting in the long term remains to be seen, so we must grasp the degree, like those methods that are advertised as fast weight loss, the principle of which is mostly to get rid of water in the body, once you resume a normal diet, it is easy to rebound. In fact, NA recommends that people lose weight through a reasonable “keep your mouth shut and your legs open” approach rather than such a diet.

“Keep your mouth shut and your legs open” is a long-established diet that we all talk about. But there are also techniques to keep your mouth shut and your legs open.

Firstly, the diet should meet at least three conditions, namely negative energy balance, low glycemic, and nutritional enrichment. The first is mainly to control our calorie intake, not to let the intake of higher than the calories we consume; the second is to try to avoid a large intake of those foods with high glycemic support, so as not to stimulate insulin secretion, accelerating the synthesis of fat; the third should pay attention to nutritional balance, because long-term lack of that nutrient is not good for our body, and the necessary nutrients are also fat Only rich nutrition can ensure the smooth decomposition of fat.

Secondly, it is important not to let up on exercise. Some people may ask, the greater the amount of exercise, the greater the intensity is not the faster you can lose weight, not so. The amount of calories consumed by exercise is determined by several factors, such as gender, weight, and exercise program, and NA’s advice is that if you belong to an obese group, it is best to be guided by a professional in slimming exercises.

Light fasting is more about improving our quality of life, not just about the number on the scale, so don’t overdo it, especially if you are a special group of people who have blindly adopted light fasting and ended up with no success in losing weight, but also brought serious harm to your body.
