Quality matters more than quantity when it comes to healthy weight loss, according to new studies released.
Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) January 23, 2013
Two new diet and nutrition studies conducted at Penn State University indicated that eating a diet containing a variety of water-rich, low-calorie density foods might be more effective for losing weight than counting calories.
Arterosil Chief Science Officer Nathalie Chevreau, PhD, R.D. pointed out that maintaining a healthy weight is a lifestyle issue, not a diet program.
“Eating a wide variety of lower-fat, lower-calorie foods and drinking enough water will help you lose weight and keep it off,” said Chevreau. “You can eat more and feel satisfied because you are giving your body the nutrients it needs.”
The first Penn State University study examined the eating patterns of 7,500 men and women, a representative sample of adult Americans. A separate study divided 101 overweight women into two groups and counseled as to what types of foods to eat for weight loss.
Emphasis on eating lower-calorie, lower-fat foods were stressed with both groups. The women in one group focused on eating a diet containing water-rich, low-density and reduced-fat foods. The overweight women in the second group received instruction to limit portion size and reduce fat.
The figures show that individuals eating high fiber diets containing fruits and vegetables weigh less eat more and have healthier eating patterns.
“Good health is about good nutrition and exercise and weight loss is more than counting calories,” said Chevreau. She further explained that a good diet satisfies hunger without adding the pounds that high-fat, energy-dense foods do.
“Fresh fruits like tomato, pineapple and apples contain many micro-nutrients, enzymes and minerals the body needs to renew itself,” said Chevreau. “Combine them with leafy greens in a salad, or a make a juice. Limit your intake of heavy calorie-dense processed foods and try lower calorie and fat protein sources like fish.” The, says Chevreau, is that the more healthy food eaten, the more the body accepts and even begins to want it. “At that point, there’s no going back.”
