Nutrition revolution. Lose weight: eat less!

Weight loss and healthy dieting concept. Apple, lemon and mandarin with measure tape. Isolated over white.

It’s hard to believe, I know, but yes, someone has put forward the outrageous idea that if we want to lose weight, we could eat less! 

This is what researchers had to say:

Up to 33% of people ordering at a fast-food Chinese-style restaurant in the U.S. accepted an explicit offer to be served smaller portions of starchy side dishes, according to a team led by Janet Schwartz of Tulane University. Those who accepted the smaller portions didn’t compensate by ordering higher-calorie entrees.  Activating consumers’ self-control in this way was more effective in reducing diners’ intake than mandated calorie labelling.”

Of course it’s human nature to want to get around this simplest of notions that losing weight means eating less – permanently. And it’s great the way we kid ourselves – how many times have you seen an office worker with a large bag of chips and a diet cola? Any amount of money is spent on diet products that have little nutritional value with no thought given to simple mindful eating. But here’s the funny thing. To lose weight on a diet program requires the same willpower as losing weight by cutting out high GI carbs and excess fat. Perhaps that’s what the researchers above wanted to demonstrate! The dieting process can give you a good kick-start for sure, but that’s the period in which you need to re-adjust your eating habits. What you eat on a regular basis after your diet program must be different, and less, than what you ate before you started. If not, you’ll just gain weight. No tricks, it’s just simple arithmetic. If you eat more calories than you burn in a day, you tend to gain weight.

Eating wholesome nutritional food, like organic cereals and fruits, really makes a difference. Today’s over-processed foods with heaps of “added goodness” don’t stack up against an organic apple. That’s why we try to give babies and toddlers a pure start to life with our certified organic fruit snacks and cereal range, because good eating habits start early.
