The 5 Vegetarian Weight Loss Mistakes Caused By Advertisers
Naturally, when most people think of vegetarian foods and weight loss, they think of men and women eating healthy meals with plenty of energy to spare.
But, what most people don't realize is there are a number of these so-called "health foods" that vegetarians are regularly consuming that aren't just unhealthy, but lead to weight gain, and I'm not talking muscle.
Over the years I've made many mistakes when it comes to eating healthy on a vegetarian diet and so I thought I would share with you some of the lessons I've learned. This way, only one of us has to make the vegetarian blunders.
With that being said, here are the 5 biggest weight loss dieting mistakes people make when switching to vegetarian meal plans:
1. Eating "health food bars" and protein bars as a healthy snack alternative or as a meal replacement.
This one is a biggie. These bars are loaded with junk binders and fillers with very little nutritional value. Unfortunately, many people believe the advertising and so think they are eating a healthy substitute. My advice, read the labels before you eat them. If nothing else, skip the bars altogether and have fresh fruit instead.
2. Falling for the convincing advertising that energy pills, energy drinks, or anything labelling itself as "thermogenic" will lead to fat loss.
While you'll get a two hour burst of "mania", the incredibly large dosage of caffeine in these products will bring your "high" to a crashing halt that often lingers for two to four hours.
Tip: avoid these ingredients: taurine, guarana, caffeine
Truth be told, energy products do NOT accelerate fat loss and none of them even work to curb your appetite.
So, do yourself a favour; skip the energy roller coaster and avoid every energy product that contains either sugar or caffeine.
3. Thinking there is a magic cereal diet.
There isn't one. In fact, most recently a popular women's magazine was glorifying a particular cereal as the breakfast of choice for those wanting to lose fat. Shame on them!
What they don't tell you is that many of these cereals contain way too much sugar and refined carbs, little-to-no protein, a small amount of fibre, and worst of all, fat derived from hydrogenated oils.
With that being said, if you really want to lose fat, then whatever you do, avoid processed grains and do NOT eat cereal in place of real food.
4. Wasting money on bodybuilding supplements
Why spend your hard-earned money on a product that is really just processed milk? Simply put, you don't need the junk that is advertised in bodybuilding supplement magazines. You can avoid them and still lose fat and build a better body.
5. The misconception that low-fat products are your best bet for fat loss
Again, those advertisers are real sneaky I tell you! But here is something they don't tell you; the only way to make these low-fat foods taste worthwhile is by pumping them full of sugar.
Sugar causes a number of potentially damaging side effects to your body, but the most visible nasty side effect is the fat that is stored right on your belly and thighs.
Tip: I recommend consuming no more than 6-9 grams of sugar per sitting. Just be careful of the nutritional label as it might indicate 6 grams/1 cup serving, while you're eating 2 cups and oops, you just consumed 12-18 grams of sugar!
So, those are 5 of the biggest mistakes made by those switching over to the vegetarian lifestyle. If you follow those guidelines you'll be well on your way to a healthy vegetarian fat loss diet.

The #1 Superfood Essential to Your Fat Loss Diet
A healthy diet is a vital component to any fat loss program. Fortunately, this superfood can be found at any grocery store or farmer's market at a relatively inexpensive price.
What's more, this superfood supplies a majority of the Recommended Daily Allowance for vitamins and minerals to give you endless amounts of energy, it stabilizes your blood sugar and detoxifies your body, and it provides you with the essential amino acids your body needs to build strong, lean muscles.
So what is it?
None other than the leafy green vegetable.
I hope you aren't disappointed it wasn't something exotic like elixir berry juice. But, the truth of the matter is, the leafy green vegetable is an underrated, nutrient dense, inexpensive, and readily available superfood.
It does, however, get a little more exciting in that this dark green vegetable has many substitutes, including spinach, kale, romaine lettuce, chard, parsley, cilantro, and many others.
In fact, if you go to a farmer's market I'm sure you'll find plenty to choose from. And variety is important because each green offers a different composition of minerals and vitamins.
Most leafy greens have a mild flavour, but if you're unsure about one, here's a little tip you can use when doing your shopping. When you find a green that you think you'd like to try, simply pinch off a small piece of it and give it a try. If you like the taste, add it to the cart, if not, just hope no one was watching!
Alright, you're home and ready to give the leafy greens a try, but you're unsure how to eat them. Well, here are some suggestions:
1. Prepare a salad with a base of greens that you like, while adding in some of the new, unfamiliar greens. You'll find that over time you'll acquire a taste for the new darker greens and begin to really enjoy them.
2. Add greens to your smoothies. I know it sounds odd, but trust me, you won't taste a thing. Just start out with a small amount of greens and slowly add more.
3. Try making fresh fruit and veggie juice with greens in it. Personally, I like cilantro, parsley, and spinach in mine.
4. Stir fries are a great way to add in veggies and greens.
5. Also, try making soups with added greens.
So, those are just some of the ways in which you can add one of the best superfoods to your diet. Try them out for two weeks and I guarantee that you will feel more alert and have more energy.

Do You Know The Right Way To Lose Weight?
by Christian Goodman
Let’s be honest here. You don’t seriously expect to lose weight in 3 weeks that took you 3 years to put on, now, do you?
Well, for some they probably can but it will only be temporary. Losing weight in a slow, steady manner is the healthiest way you can do it, and it’s also the only way to keep it off for good.
It needs more than just a diet plan, because those alone don’t work. It requires a shift in lifestyle. People often think that losing weight is hard because they want something that is quick, fast, and easy.
You must remove those habits that made you overweight. And you must have more body movement. The word ‘exercise’ makes us cringe, most of the time. But it doesn’t have to be a task that you dislike and it doesn’t have to be something that occupies most of your time. You just need to move your body more. The more you do that, the easier it becomes and in time, you may actually come to look forward to it and truly miss it on those occasions when you can’t do it.
Healthy weight loss takes time and typically you’ll see only a pound or two per week. Can you accelerate this with exercise? You bet. The combination of a healthy, sensible diet, balanced with all the food groups and exercise 3-5 times a week for 30 minutes will show you hard proof that you don’t need the latest fad diet making the rounds to get to your ideal weight.
You don’t even have to do drastic changes all at once. Start by making small changes that will make a huge difference if done cumulatively. For example, if you drink soda, switch to water. If you normally skip breakfast, try to eat breakfast at least 3 times a week. Eating breakfast really helps. Once you start doing that, you’ll feel so much better that soon you will be eating breakfast everyday by choice.
Phase out some of the fast food you eat, and some of the overly processed food that offers little if any nutrients for your body to use. Choose whole grain bread instead of white bread. Little changes. One at a time. As you discover what healthy actually feels like, you’ll naturally be drawn to want more of it.
Losing weight the healthy way doesn’t mean cutting foods out completely, even ‘bad-for-you’ foods. It’s unreasonable to think you’ll never again eat another piece of birthday cake or Thanksgiving stuffing or Christmas candy. If you’re watching what you eat, even 80% of the time, the other 20% you can relax a bit.
Overweight people are also missing something else from their lives, and that is oxygen. The body can burn fat much more quickly when enough oxygen is present. I have created a program which will provide your body with the oxygen it needs.
My ‘Weight Loss Breeze’ program connects perfectly with your weight loss efforts. These simple exercises only take a few short minutes a day, but the effects on your weight are astounding. When you combine the Weight Loss Breeze with proper nutrition, even without exercise, you will see your pounds melt away.
Christian Goodman is a well known natural health alternative researcher and the creator of the Natural Health Blog. His latest program is the Weight Loss Breeze program, which is the best weight loss program to help you reduce weight naturally.

My name is Diana Keuilian, I’m the creator of Family Friendly Fat Burning Foods and today I’d like to share with you my top 7 Tips To Make Fat Burning Meals.
Wouldn't it be great if all your favorite comfort meals naturally promoted fat loss? I think that would be awesome.
My old favorite comfort meals were fried fish tacos, fully-loaded veggie burritos, angel hair pasta with mizithra cheese and cheese-smothered veggie burgers with fries. Yummmmmmmm! Unfortunately these old favorites brought on rapid fat storage.
Due to my love of food, in my twenties I went from a size 4 to a size 12.
In my frustration I tried portion control, and began to limit the amount of foods that I ate. This began a yo-yo cycle of eating less food one day, more the next, and never seeing the results I wanted.
Over the past few years I've read countless books on nutrition and have finally landed on the formula for creating meals that promote fat loss, and taste good while doing it.
Oh and this method of eating has effortlessly brought me back to that size 4 :)
This is what I discovered...
Fat Burning Tip #1) Focus On Protein
The base of a fat burning meal is a healthy serving of quality, lean protein. Choose from organic, hormone-free chicken, pork, beef, lamb, veal, fish or eggs.
No wonder I was gaining weight! Most of my favorite meals had very little to do with protein. After giving up meat at age 12, I spent the next 18 years as a junk food vegetarian. Most of my meals were made up of processed grains and sugar.
Why is protein so important? Protein supports and fuels your lean tissues, namely your muscles, and does not have an effect on blood sugar levels, which would promote fat storage.
Fat Burning Tip #2) Ditch Grains and Refined Sugar
A fat burning meal does not contain a serving of grains or starches. Yes, I realize that this goes against everything that we have been taught or experienced with dinners. Most meals are plated with a jumbo serving of noodles, pasta, potatoes, rice, has been breaded or is served with bread, tortillas, chips or buns.
As I learned the hard way, these carbs are more than we need, and end up being stored as fat. And, yes, it is possible to create fat-burning dinners that satisfy even the hungriest meat-and-potatoes members of your family.
This was the hardest part for me to get used to. Grains and sugar are filled with fat-promoting carbs, and as you saw above, my favorite meals were all carb-ed out.
There's really no reason, other than habit, to eat grains or sugar on a regular basis. Once I removed these from my diet, and got out of the habit of eating them, I no longer craved or even found my old favorites very appealing.
Fat Burning Tip #3) Bring On The Veggies
After you remove the grains and sugars from your meal, add a bunch of fiber-filled veggies instead. One of my favorite things to do now when building a fat burning meal is to get a bowl, add a few handfuls of organic spinach and arugula, and then top it with protein and some cooked veggies. Add a light homemade dressing and you're looking at the perfect, quick fat burning meal.
Fiber-filled veggies are important for many reasons in addition to the fiber. They are filled with nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, all of which your body needs. They are also very low in calories compared to the amount of space that they take up in your stomach. So you'll get full faster on fewer calories.
Fat Burning Tip #4) Quality Ingredients
Ingredients are the building blocks to a healthy meal so pay attention to the quality of the ingredients you use. Fast food just isn’t going to cut it! Be willing to spend a little more on the foods that you eat. Quality is much more important that quantity.
When choosing meat look for organic, antibiotic and hormone-free. Avoid processed meats, like lunchmeats, as these contain potentially harmful additives and lots of salt. Also avoid highly processed soy fake meats.
Choose foods that are:
- Fresh, organic and seasonal
- Pronounceable ingredients
- Whole foods
Fat Burning Tip #5) Use A Healthy Cooking Method
The method in which you cook your meal determines how many calories, how much added fat, and the number of nutrients that survive.
Don’t prepare meals like this:
- Fried and battered
- Processed and packaged
- Doused with cream sauce
Choose these cooking methods:
Fat Burning Tip #6) Cook With Coconut Oil
I used to always cook with vegetable oil, never realizing how harmful it was to my fat loss efforts. Unfortunately most people use harmful, unstable and fat promoting oils when they cook.
The good news is that coconut oil is an amazing, healthy oil that not only tastes great but also helps promote fat loss. Among its many benefits, coconut oil is stable, even at high temperatures. It’s filled with lauric acid, which boosts the immune system and helps ward off infections.
Best of all, coconut oil has been shown to increase metabolism and thyroid activity, which boosts fat burning.
Fat Burning Tip #7) Enjoy Dessert of Fresh Fruit
When is the last time that you bit into a fresh, organic, perfectly ripe piece of fruit? Delicious, wasn’t it? I used to overlook fruit as the perfect dessert that it is, and instead would eat artificially flavored, cane sugar sweetened, processed desserts that encourage rapid weight gain and declined health.
I’m not going to say that ice cream and chocolate don’t taste awesome, because they do. But eating desserts like that on a regular basis is one of the big reasons that I kept gaining weight back in my twenties. By making the simple switch from refined sugar desserts to desserts of organic, fresh fruit I was able to lose weight without feeling deprived.
Let’s bring fruit back to its rightful place as our favorite, most popular after-dinner sweet. Out with the refined sugar and corn syrup and in with Nature’s sweetest gift…fresh fruit.
Hope that you have enjoyed these 7 Tips To Make Fat Burning Meals. I’m walking proof that this way of eating truly delivers results without deprivation or boring, bland meals.
I love food WAY too much to give up flavorful, delicious dinners, snacks and desserts. In fact, I’m so passionate about creating fat burning foods that, for the first time ever, I’ve put all of my best recipes and eating secrets together into a full Family Friendly Fat Burning Meals program.
