“Dear diet, things aren’t going well between us, it’s not me, it’s YOU, you’re boring, tasteless, and I can’t stop cheating on you!” All you folks who are on diet, we feel you! No actually we fell you, we know how tremendously difficult maintaining a standard and boring diet can get, It’s more like riding a bike, except the bike is on fire, you are on fire and everything else is on fire because you feel like you’re in hell.
Every one of us gone through this terrible phase when we just reluctantly dump all the sinful our heart craves for. And sticking to a particular diet plan just gets harder day by day. You feel, discomfort, uneasiness and you cannot hold on it anymore! But how about enjoying all your favourite delicacies while still staying committed to your diet? You know what? Don’t break-up, just wake-up. We’ll tell you how!
Understand your body, sweeties!
When it comes to dieting, you can’t just wake up one day and cut-short things from your daily diet, this in turn will do no good and make the situation even worse. You have to understand your body! Your body type is fundamentally depended on the metabolic activity. You are either one of these body type, Ectomorphic, Mesomorphic, Endormorphic. When your body metabolism rate is fast, you have naturally skinny limbs and your body is highly tolerant to carbs, you’re an ectomorph. When your body has a moderate metabolic rate, you’re moderately tolerant to carbs, you have a muscular and athletic body naturally; you are a mesomorph. On the other hand, an endomorphic body has a much slower metabolic rate and is broad and thick with low tolerance to carbohydrates, therefore, gaining weight faster than the former two.
Why is macronutrient ratio important?
Macromix is an important consideration when it comes to diet. There is no standard law as such when it comes to the macronutrient ratio because everyone has a different body type. But here’s some macro-morphing made easy for you.
Ectomorph: For Ectomorphs 25% protein, 55% carbs and 20% fat is considered to be the ideal macronutrient ratio.
Mesomorph: Mesomorphs can generally start off with a 30% protein, 40% carb, 30% fat macronutrient percentage.
Endomorph: Endomorphs can try a ratio of 35% protein, 25% carbs and 40% fat.
Though we’ve made it simple, you have to consider the fact that manipulating your ratios continually is pretty important through any process of shooing away those extra pounds!
Diet like a boss; know your BMR.
BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) is the quantity of energy consumed by your body when it is at rest. The BMR is fundamentally dependent on the variables of Age, gender, height and weight. Now you can calculate your daily energy spending through the BMR calculator online which uses the Harris Benedict equation to determine calories any day and you’re sorted! Sounds cool, eh?
