Restaurant meals tend to be higher in calories, saturated fat, and sodium than homemade meals, and lower in calcium, fiber, and other weight-friendly nutrients. If you’re trying to drop pounds and be healthy, your best bet is to choose foods from the restaurants and brands that emphasize fresh, whole ingredients and prepackaged portions, like Chipotle, Jamba Juice, KIND, Lean Cuisine, and Weight Watchers.
In a February 2015 New York Times article, a group of reporters gathered 3000 meal orders from Chipotle—which proudly proclaims on its website, “We’re all about simple, fresh food without artificial flavors or fillers”—and calculated the calories, saturated fat, and sodium in them. KIND, another brand that touts itself as “healthy and tasty,” was recently taken to task by the FDA, which found that several of its products did not meet the requirements to use the claims “good source of fiber,” “no trans fats,” “low sodium”, “+ antioxidants,” and “+ protein,” among others.

The only way to finally, truly lose the weight and keep it off for good is to stop feeling bad about your weight and your body. If you love and respect your body, it will not feel like a chore to research restaurant entrees before you go out to eat or to read nutrition labels in the grocery store or to cook for yourself and your family.

Well, it’s true that, on average, Americans eat more carbs than we really need, especially refined carbohydrates like those in white bread, pasta, cakes, and cookies. Next thing you know, you’re craving those forbidden foods like nobody’s business, and you feel like you’d mow down your own mother to get to a piece of bread. A healthy diet with a daily calorie deficit of 500 calories will help you lose the recommended one pound per week. But if you’re in the habit of eating when the clock says to, instead of when you’re actually hungry—which researchers at the University of Minnesota found is one of the main reasons people eat when they do—you tend to lose touch with what “hungry” feels like and eat more than you really need. Among our top sources of calories, in fact, are cakes and cookies, breads, pizza, pasta, and sugary drinks. Doing all three of these will burn more body fat, while leaving one out will burn more lean body mass.
Neither of these methods will tell you how much body fat has been lost, but they can show that you are moving in the right direction. Thus obesity is termed as silent killer in the recent days because of the fatal diseases that are caused as a result of it. Which is why, when you suddenly slash the amount of food you’re eating, your body reacts by hanging on to every bit of fat it can. So if you cut back on these foods, you will automatically slash your calorie consumption and lose weight.
Though obese persons have a high risk of being effected by many diseases they can be prevented and controlled with some homemade natural remedies, in accordance to your BMI respectively.
And, because excess consumption of refined carbs has been associated with diabetes, heart disease, and a host of other chronic diseases, you’ll be healthier if you eat fewer of them. Otherwise, you are going to stress your body out and it will be very difficult to keep lean muscle, which means you will gain weight back even easier.
