Carbohydrates and weight loss

Overweight. A social problem, slowly but surely. In the Netherlands, 40 percent of the population suffers from some form of obesity. Maybe you also suffer from obesity and want to lose weight (quickly)? In this blog I give you tips and insights.

Crash diet
First of all, when losing weight, make sure you do this in a healthy way. A crash diet is not the solution for this, because it will only make you heavier in the end. The best, fastest and healthiest way to lose weight is to drastically change your lifestyle. And so are your eating habits. A diet that fits in with this is, for example, a low-carbohydrate diet. This diet helps you lose weight by limiting the number of carbohydrates in your diet. This causes your body to use fat as a fuel, with the result that your fat reserves decrease and you eventually lose weight.

What to do and what not to do
So my motto is to limit the number of carbohydrates you take. But not all carbohydrates are bad by definition. The main thing is that you drastically reduce the so-called fast carbohydrates. These fast carbohydrates are seen by your body as sugar, but you certainly don’t always taste the sweet taste you’re used to. The products with a lot of sugar should be avoided. But other products also contain fast carbohydrates that you can better avoid when you want to lose weight. Here are a few examples of these products:

White pasta
White bread (all types)
White rice
Potatoes
Candy
Cake
Soft drink
Ready meals
Fruit juice from suit

These products contain a lot of fast carbohydrates. But don’t be afraid that you won’t be able to eat a sandwich or enjoy a delicious homemade pasta. Atkins has products that are low in carbohydrates, including bread and pasta. You can eat these products without having to worry about getting (too much) sugar. You can vary with the filling on your bread: cheese, salmon, herb cheese, healthy, and so on. And the pasta can be combined with many different sauces. To give you a helping hand, Atkins has a number of recipes on its website. If you don’t know what to eat tonight, take a look and don’t fall back on a ready-made pizza or a microwave meal.

Don’t forget breakfast
Besides reducing carbohydrates, breakfast is the secret of slim people. By eating breakfast, you put your metabolism to work. After a night of fasting your body is ready for some action. Breakfast stimulates your digestion and your bowel movements, this is a good start to the day. It also prevents you from getting hungry in the morning and then snoring.
This way you see that fast and healthy weight loss doesn’t mean that you can’t or shouldn’t eat anymore! Well, eat a good breakfast and pay attention to the fast carbohydrates you should avoid. Good luck!

Jengel Factor
Manufacturers of children’s products make use of a number of things in their child marketing strategy:

Children’s innate preference for fatty and sweet products.
The jengel factor; nagging and screaming children in the supermarket, because they necessarily want that one biscuit or candy from Piet Piraat, Dora or Hello Kitty.
The modern age: a bit tired parents (two-earners, single parents) who keep children sweet with sweets; it’s unfortunately of this day and age.
The digital age: children are online oriented and often sit on the internet. Misleading advertising for children’s products on the internet is not yet prohibited.

Digital predators
In 2009, there was a ban on child advertising for unhealthy products. This ban only applies to advertise that is distributed via radio, TV, and print. Online marketing, via websites, is not included. Manufacturers make good use of this by placing coloring pages, games, competitions and the like on their websites (Tjezie, Paula, Max ice creams). So attracting children.

what the purpose of advertising is and why Dora, Piet Piraat and other (cartoon) movie characters are on a package. Make your children wise and resilient. digitally.

What you can do as a parent
Sign the citizens’ initiative on the Foodwatch site for a ban on child marketing of unhealthy products

This ban only applies to advertising that is distributed via radio, TV and print. Online marketing, via websites, is not included. Manufacturers make good use of this by placing colouring pages, games, competitions and the like on their websites (Tjezie, Paula, Max ice creams). So attracting children digitally.
Don’t give in at the store. Saying no is not a problem. It means that you are raising your child and teaching him/her (your) norms and values.
From the age of 7 you can explain very well to a child what the purpose of advertising is and why Dora, Piet Piraat and other (cartoon) movie characters are on a package. Make your children wise and resilient.

Good luck!
