5 ways to drop 5 pounds

I’d like to share five simple strategies with you for shedding five pounds of fat before the holidays. But first let me clear something up. Weight loss can be put into two categories. The first is a fully concentrated effort. This is where you dedicate yourself to counting every calorie and slaving away in the gym. The pounds come off, but once you relax the regimen your weight goes right back to where it was. The second is a combination of simple lifestyle changes. This is where you change a few key factors about what you eat and how you exercise, without making it a fulltime job. This type of weight loss is gradual and permanent, since you are able to maintain it long term. The five simple strategies below all fall into the lifestyle change category.

Eating To Lose Fat

  1. Eating slowly is better for digestion and absorption , and will not leave you feeling bloated and with unpleasant gas problems.It takes about 20 minutes for your brain to register that you’re full. If you fast then you may eat beyond the point of fullness and this leads to unhealthy weight gain. 2. Broiled or Baked? Order your food broiled, steamed or baked.

Canola Oil Friend or Foe?

  Canola Oil Is Not the best fat for cooking ! Articles full of misinformation in the fitness magazines regarding the best fats to cook with. The number one choice (canola oil) is actually one of the worst fats to cook with, and the real number one fat to cook with doesn’t even make the list. A little more than 30% of canola oil is made up of polyunsaturated fats, very fragile fatty acids that are easily damaged by high heat processing, which is the processing method of virtually all commercial forms of canola oil. Sure, it’s made up of a large portion of heat-resistant monounsaturates, but that still leaves 30% of the oil as denatured, processed junk.. And you know what happens when fragile polyunsaturates are heated to high temperatures? That’s right, they turn to trans fats, the absolute worst possible thing you can put in your body! Trans-fats ...(Read More)

Truth or Myth

  Let’s talk about the supposed best source of calcium: a.k.a: milk! Drinking milk is an excellent source of calcium. Or IS IT?┬áThen I looked up at the milk refrigerator and it said Healthy Milk. I thought to myself, wow, I can’t believe the advertising, and people actually believe this stuff. It may contain calcium, but an excellent source? I don’t think so! I want to debunk that myth for you right now. Americans consume a lot of milk annually along with Scandinavian countries, and many European countries. In fact, we’re in the top 12 consumers of milk among all the countries in the world, yet the United States along with Europe account for more than half of all bone fractures in the world. And the incidences of osteoporosis in these countries are increasing every year. How does this happen if we are consuming cartons and cartons of milk, which ...(Read More)

Researchers have done their homework on fiber, and the results spell easy weight loss for all who listen. By consuming an extra 14 grams of fiber each day you can cut your calorie intake by a full 10 percent. People who consume more fiber (as low as 20 grams per day) weigh an average of 8 pounds lighter than people who consume low fiber (closer to 10 grams per day). There are two main reasons that high fiber leads to weight loss: Fiber fills you up and stabilizes blood sugar for hours. This tames your appetite and protects you from needless snacking. Foods that are high in fiber aren’t as calorie dense. When you fill up on high fiber foods you eat just as much but take in fewer calories. Breaking it Down It’s always easier to understand a concept like this when real life examples are given. So here’s ...(Read More)
