Indulge food and still lose weight

Sugar Filled Foods

In a perfect world, no matter how many calories you'd consume, your weight wouldn't increase at all. But since that's impossible, we can't eat everything we want for us to live a healthy life. And since we are all addicted to food, it can be no fun if we don't indulge ourselves with our favorite foods every once in a while. However, this doesn't mean that you must ignore all the rules just to satisfy yourself.

In this article, we will provide you some tips on how to indulge the right way, without taking away all the fun. This will help you satisfy your cravings and still retain the weight that you're targeting. Here are some tips to keep in mind the next you're out indulging on the foods that you enjoy:

1. The (slightly) smarter decision - Just because you're allowed to indulge on foods, doesn't mean that you can choose the fattiest, greasiest food that's available. You can satisfy yourself the smart way by considering choices that is not limited only to salad. So, if you're planning to order large fries, don't order it just for yourself but rather split a small portion of it with your friend. Through this technique, not only will you satisfy your cravings but also not feel guilty about finishing a large option for your order.

2. Set a cheat day - If you're craving for a particular food, don't give in easily. You can try setting up a day in the week where you can let go of any normal restrictions that you used to follow. This will help you be more motivated of not "cheating" at any time you want. Think of it as a day to reward yourself but remember not to go overboard during your cheat day.

3. Bank those calories - You should plan your meals ahead of time to allow yourself to spend those calories more wisely. If you have dinner plans later on, you should at least settle for a lunch that isn't loaded with calories and fat. It will allow you to balance every food that you'll put in your belly and prevent an overload of calories during that day.

4. Go for an occasional treat - Don't feel guilty about this because sometimes you deserve a small treat for all your hard work. When you're in a healthy diet, eating a piece of chocolate cake won't ruin your entire weight loss plan. According to a study, you don't have to increase your workout intensity just to flush out the piece of cake you've eaten the day before. A daily variance of something that's around 600 calories won't affect your waistline just as long as you're maintaining a healthy diet in the long term.

5. Eat the real stuff - If you're going for the lighter version of something, it doesn't always pay off. Most of these supposedly "diet-friendly" variations of certain indulgences, like fat-free ice cream, is always the best and healthier choice. They're actually full of sugar, artificial sweeteners, and other substitutes that will make you regret after eating it. You may even end up eating more of these lighter versions than you would if you just ate the real thing.

These tips are most especially applicable during the holiday season because of the left and right eating marathon that you'll be having. Just remember these tips provided by Vacaville Weight Loss and you're more likely to control your weight even when you're satisfying your cravings.
