I spend a great deal of time writing nutrition articles on WorldofDiets and for a good reason: nutrition is the basis of good health and a fast weight loss.
I want to present you with 10 of the best nutrition articles that you should read. Some are my own creation and some were written by other authors. These will give you some excellent tools that will help you lose weight and improve your health.
1. Carb Cycling By Tom Venuto
In this article, Tom Venuto, author of the Burn The Fat Feed The Muscle program explores carb cycling, one of the most popular nutrition methods by bodybuilders and people who want to lose fat without giving up all of their carbs.
Venuto provides detailed information on exactly what carb cycling is, how it works, when you should use it, and what the possible effects are. If you ever heard about carb cycling and were wondering what it really is, this is a must read article.
2. Are You Buying TOXIC Fish and Seafood
This excellent article by Mike Geary, author of the Truth About Abs program and the Fat Burning Kitchen nutrition plan deals with a topic that doesn’t get enough mention in the mainstream media: the toxicity in some of the fish we eat today.
As fish production becomes more industrialized, there are problems that arise by taking fish out of their natural environment. Farmed fish pose a few health risks worth knowing about, but even wild fish may contain high levels of mercury and other hazardous elements.
Geary provides some tips on how to choose the most safe fish for you and your family in this important article.
This is an article that I wrote a while ago with 55 nutrition tips for great health and weight loss. Some of these tips may prove to be surprising, to say the least. Some will expose myths that are commonly accepted as truth. If you’re looking for some quick and easy to apply steps to improve your diet and accelerate weight loss, these 55 tips are just what you need.
We all know about the dreaded beer belly, but did you ever stop to think what it is about alcohol that makes people fat and whether it is just beer that is the problem?
In this post, yours truly explores the way alcohol influences your body and changes the way it burns off fat calories. I also reveal some ways in which alcohol changes your behavior that further influence your chances of losing fat.
I guess the title of this article pretty much sums it up. I reveal a simple way in which the average American may save up to 67,675 calories on his or her diet each and every year.
This is easy to do and it alone can lead you to lose a few extra pounds or help you avoid gaining them. So, it’s well worth reading and doing.
6. Is There Any Such Thing As “Essential Carbohydrates”?
Does your body really need carbs? Can you survive and even thrive without eating any carbs or are there essential carbs that your body needs?
In this article, Tom Venuto explores whether your body requires carbs and is it a good idea to go on a very low carb diet. Is it really good for weight loss? How does it affect your mood? How does your body react to a prolonged low carb diet and is there a better way to eat? If you’re considering a very low carb diet, this is an excellent article to read.
On his paleo diet mega-blog, Mark Sisson covers a variety of topics which relate to primal eating and fitness. In this article, Sisson answers a question by a reader and discusses, in length, whether a low carb diet can be improved by the occasional carb fest.
This is an article that anyone who is doing a low carb diet and seeing their weight loss stall should read. Sisson goes over how to do a carb fest, when to do it, who should and shouldn’t do it, and why this kind of carb feeding may be good for weight loss.
Who would have thought that some vegetables can actually burn off belly fat or help prevent or reduce the storage of it. In this article, Mike Geary goes over the incredible effect that cruciferous vegetables have on your body’s tendency to store abdominal fat. You may never look at broccoli and cabbage and kale in the quite the same way again.
Spices are often perceived as nothing more than a way to add a little flavor to your food. This doesn’t do them justice. There are some spices which provide a real benefit to your health and contribute to your fat loss efforts.
In this article I go over some of the best spices that you should include in your diet if you’re interested in losing weight. Now is the time to spice up your food and get a little extra fat loss in the process.
As weight loss is all about calories it seems to make sense that you should cut your calories down to a very low level, perhaps to the point where you feel like your starving. Is this a good idea or a disastrous one?
In this article I explore what happens to your body when you go on a starvation diet and explain how this may not be the best way to go if you want to achieve a long term weight loss.
I hope that these articles will give you something to chew on (pardon the pun) as you continue to educate yourself on the best way to feed your body to maintain good health and an attractive physique. Read them all and you will have plenty of things that you can improve quickly to become healthier and leaner soon.
