Last night I read a book called the Negative Calorie Diet.
The reason why I read this book was because I had no other books to read, and I think I’m gaining weight again.
This diet’s main argument is our body uses energy to eat and digest food, so by eating certain foods we will actually eat our way to losing weight. The book further suggests to practice deep breathing exercises and to have 30 minutes of exercise a day.
Do you think it sounds appealing?
Personally I think it could be more trouble than it’s worth. I say trouble because I would have to alter my eating habits quite drastically. The suggested meals of the diet are of soups and salads.
What I like about this diet is the concept that there are certain foods that will increase your metabolism.
What I will learn from the book, are the right foods to take and the ways to make sure you’re not eating just to satisfy a craving (the tip is to drink a glass of water).
I’m also going to take the book’s advice and start exercising again, after a 3 month break.
I’ve not touched my sport shoes since Rachel was born (I think I still have a pair of socks stuffed inside the shoes).
What do you think? What are some of the diets you’ve tried? What works for you?
