Another good article appeared today in the fitness section of MSNBC.

Since you’re busy, I’ll do a quick summary of the article — the good
stuff, the bad stuff, and what you need to do today to get started…

First, you need to know this…

And this will probably shock you…

Rarely, if EVER, do you need to suppress your appetite!

The real secret is to increase your metabolism… the rate at which
your body uses food for fuel.

Then being hungry is a good thing… as long as you’re eating the right
foods at the right time.

Jon Benson’s “Favorite Foods” plan is a great way to do this…

But let’s say you want to curb your appetite at night…. that’s the
time most people really lose it on a dietplan. Even on a plan that
ASKS you to eat frequently like mine, there are times where
night-time cravings need to be put to sleep.

So use these tips from the article to ease the urge to eat at night:

1. Protein First

As Jon stresses in his diet plan, “Rise and shine with protein.”  But
what does this have to do with night-time cravings?


Set the body up to use your own fat-stores for fuel by eating protein
in the morning and your appetite FOR fatty foods goes way down during
the day and the night. Protein is “thermogenic”, meaning it helps
increase your metabolism. It also acts as a natural appetite regulator.

Notice I said “regulator” and not “suppressant.” That’s because you
only need to regulate your appetite, no matter how much bodyfat you
desire to drop.

Cool, right?

2. Go For The Grapefruit

In a study at the Nutrition and Metabolic Research Center at the
Scripps Clinic in San Diego, people who ate half a grapefruit with each
meal lost an average of 3.6 pounds in three months. That doesn’t sound
like a lot (and it isn’t) but that’s ALL they changed.

It doesn’t matter for our purposes… we want to lower insulin at
night. Why? Insulin is not only dangerous for your health in excess but
it also can cause a LOT of fat storage if secreted too much at night.
Enter the lowly grapefruit.

A great snack, especially if you have a few bites of lean protein
with it.

3. Smell This!

This is a trick I didn’t know about until recently.

Smelling food can trick your brain into thinking you’ve eaten.

A recent study found that those who inhaled peppermint in scent form
every 2 hours at (get this) 2700 calories LESS per week than they
normally did.

Let me put that in perspective:  That’s a fatloss of more than half a
pound a week… from sniffing peppermint!

Vanilla also works. You can keep vanilla-scented drops or even candles
around the office and take a wiff every few hours.

How easy is that?


The Bad Part

The MSNBC article goes on with advice like “eat potatoes” and “eat just
a little bit of fat”, both of which are nonsense.

Potatoes may fill you up, but they are still starch – and starch should
be consumed on your “off” days.

Potatoes are especially bad due to the higher-than-desired glycemic
index of 85 (anything over 50 is too high.)

You also need dietary fat… and not just “a little.” You need a
moderate amount to stay healthy and keep insulin regulated.

Olive oil and even coconut oil are excellent sources, as are naturally
occurring fats in fresh fish, grass-fed beef, farm-raised chicken and
whole eggs.

The rest of the article is common sense stuff:  Workout, eat dense food
that requires you to chew a lot (tire out the jaw muscles and you
naturally eat less), etc.

The top 3 are the real winners.

P.S.  You may be wondering, “How do you eat your favorite foods (like
pizza or burgers) and still stay so fit?”

P.P.S.  I found another really good article you may want to check out
as well. It’s all about how diet plans fail YOU… and this may do more
than relieve some “guilt” you might have over the start/stop dieting
so many of us have gone through.
