Boost your Weight Loss
Weight loss depends on eating fewer calories than your body uses up and when you follow this plan on a daily basis, positive difference will be measurable to the scale.
An Italian study found that you can boost weight loss by about 25 percent just by eating 70 percent of each day’s calories between breakfast and lunch, including a mid-morning snack, and the other 30 percent as an afternoon snack and dinner.
The researchers used the heart-healthy Mediterranean diet for their study. All the participants cut their intake by 600 calories a day. Their calorie breakdown was 55 percent carbohydrates, 30 percent fat and 15 percent protein, with over 30 grams of fiber daily.
At the end of three months, the participants who ate 70 percent of their daily calories through lunch lost 18 pounds.
On the other hand participants who ate just 55 percent of their calories through lunch lost 14 pounds. Plus, they lost more body fat and used insulin more effectively, which can help ward off diabetes.
It will take some effort to re balance your calories, especially if you’re used to eat more lately in the day and evening. But the results could be more than worth the switch.
Guidelines for Mediterranean diet:
Most of the foods you eat should be plant-based
- Plant-based oils
- Notably olive oil in place of animal fats
- Eat moderate amounts of dairy in no- or low-fat varieties
- Eat low-to-moderate amounts of fish
- Less poultry and even less meat
Focus on fresh, seasonal foods when possible and try to eliminate processed and packaged foods.
This is probably the best diet plan for losing weight according to lots of experts and gym trainers.
