Former BBC Breakfast and current Good Morning Britain presenter Susanna Reid has recently been showing off her new slimmer figure following her decision to start the Tupperware Diet.
What is this diet though and is it an effective way to lose weight?
What does the Tupperware Diet involve?
This diet basically is about preparation, and the act of preparing your meals beforehand.
Many of us lead busy lives where we struggle to find time to prepare healthy meals to eat. This will lead us to buy takeaways and other processed junk food.
By preparing meals beforehand you can ensure you are eating healthy and staying in shape, helping to avoid the health problems associated with being overweight or obese.
What kind of foods can be eaten on the Tupperware Diet?
When choosing what foods to eat while undertaking the Tupperware Diet it is important that you choose using this basic formula:
Complex Carbs (grains etc) + Protein + Vegetables
You should not fill your Tupperware with junk food nor should you choose a container that is too large, remember you still need to eat a healthy amount but not too much as even eating a lot of the healthy foods will cause weight gain.
Some example foods for the Tupperware Diet include:
- Brown rice/pasta
- Boiled eggs
- Steamed vegetables
If you can you should choose one day a week to prepare your meals, just make sure you alternate the meal choices otherwise you are going to get bored quickly and are likely to quit.
Is the Tupperware Diet recommended?
Susanna Reid certainly seems to have experienced the benefits of this diet, but it is important that for this diet to work you need to stick to what you put inside those little plastic boxes.
If you eat other more unhealthy foods alongside the Tupperware Diet then you are certainly not going to see the results you had hoped for.
Also weight loss is not just about what you eat. It also involves your activity levels or the amount of exercise you get too.
If you lead a busy life exercise can be hard to fit into your busy schedule, but it is important that you find 20 minutes 3-4 times a week to workout.
Thats right, you can see a huge difference to how you look and feel with just 1 hour of exercise a week. This is not a huge amount of time, you just need to make sure that whatever exercise/s you perform pushes you to your limit.
Simply going through the motions and not pushing yourself is not going to help you see the results you so desperately crave.
