Why Dr Simeons Diet works.
Let’s start with the basics. Your body needs fuel in the form of carbohydrates, sugars and fats. You also need to drink the proper amount of water for your size, in order to help eliminate the toxins, which are stored in the fat. People often mistake thirst for hunger. They get the signal that the body needs liquid, and misinterpret it as a signal of needing food. The next time you feel hungry, you might want to try drinking a large glass of water, and waiting about 15 minutes. If you’re still hungry, it’s time to eat, and you will eat less because your stomach is not as empty as it was before the glass of water. If you’re not hungry, then you just saved the extra calories from a meal that you didn’t need at all. . Most people know that the body needs vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, but did you know that we also need micronutrients? They are so abundant and so varied, that science has barely scratched the surface in the process of identifying them. Micronutrients have become extremely important in the study of nutrition. They play an incredibly important role in your health and well-being.
The ideal situation is to have a balanced diet, that supplies us with enough fuel and nutrients in the proper ratio. Doctors, nutritionists, and researchers have been saying this for years. The problem is that in our new society of processed food , we eat a lot of processed convenience foods. These processed foods contain empty calories at best, as well as toxic chemicals in some cases. By the term empty calories we mean that they lack the nutrients and micronutrients required to sustain a healthy body.
Hunger can mean that your body needs:
- fuel (carbohydrates, sugar, starches)
- nutrients (vitamins, minerals, and micronutrients)
So now that we've categorized what our bodies need. How does one differentiate the feelings of hunger so that you can pinpoint whether you need fuel or micronutrients?
Try drinking that large glass of water. If it doesn't satisfy your hunger, then it's probably nutrients that you’re lacking. Normally you go to your refrigerator and grab a processed package, and you eat it, thinking that this will satisfy your hunger. Are you surprised that it doesn't? So often you feel full but you still want more! What happened? Well, you just ate food that had fuel, carbohydrates, and no nutrition. Unfortunately, you can't process the fuel because it requires micronutrients, which The micronutrients are needed to process the fuel. So your body can't do anything else except store it into fat.
The truth is that If you’re overweight and hungry, then you don't need as many carbs. It would be better to eat something that is high in nutrients and very low in calories.
This is why the Dr. Simeons diet is NOT a starvation diet. You get the fuel that you need from your stored fat, and the nutrition from the diet.
