Some Straight Talk about Weight Loss and Your Eating Habits
Overweight is a universal problem.
Due to modern day fast-paced daily lifestyles, people are eating on the run, mostly snack type foods, and are having to face a growing weight problem. When the clothes no longer fit, you decide to implement a weight loss plan, but unfortunately, do not achieve much success.
You may be going about it the wrong way!
Losing weight is a process.
There are many reasons why people overeat. It may be boredom, or it may be as a result of stress. Comfort eaters usually opt for junk food like rolls, cakes, chocolates and other acid forming delicacies, which flood the body with acid. The excess acid which the body is unable to eliminate is deposited in the fat cells, steadily increasing the size of bulges already there. When you embark on a weight loss plan, opting for a more alkaline diet is important to balance body pH levels, and boost your chances of losing weight.
Portion Distortion can sink your weight loss plans.
Most people believe that the quality of the food you eat matters more than the quantity. Recent research on portion control proves this to be incorrect. Changing your eating habits to a more alkaline diet is important, but just because it is a so-called good food, does not mean you can eat as much of it as you want!

To guarantee a lifetime of weight control success, you need to change the type of foods you eat, and permanently adjust your portions to suit the new shape you want to be
