Dieting Basics: Beginners’ Guide to Healthy Living
Are you an old hand at dieting … but never quite achieve the results you want? Do you ever feel a bit bemused by words like calories, kilojoules, fat free, high-protein, low-carb, GI, F-plan, RDA, BMI… Do you want to lose weight, but just don’t know where to start? From next week, I’ll be posting a series tackling “Dieting Basics”.
I know some of you will be about to stop reading at this point, thinking you know all this – but treat the series as a refresher course. It’ll be a great way to brush up your knowledge, check out the facts, and ensure you’re following real diet guidelines that work , rather than the latest celebrity-endorsed fads. As usual on The Office Diet, there’ll be plenty of real-world hints, tips and ideas. I’ll be linking to some of the most insightful diet writing on the web, too, so if you’ve published an article you’d like me to share with other readers, drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This is what I’ll be covering:
- What are the Big Four? The facts about:
- What exactly is a calorie, and how many should you be eating?
- Exercise to aid your weight loss:
- How, and why, you should …
- Three insider secrets from a seasoned Office Dieter:
- Dieting Glossary to explain buzz-terms like GI, BMI, RDA…
Being a bit uncertain of the basics can really knock your confidence when it comes to dieting, and your boss is unlikely to send you on a training course to brush up your knowledge.
