Have you ever experienced this – had dinner, had dessert but for some reason you are not able to take out the cookies lying in your kitchen out of your mind. Cravings trigger anywhere, anytime and play on your vulnerabilities and sometimes the impulse to have a particular food item is so compelling that you just can’t say no to it. Once you surpass the craving after munching on the things you crave for, you normally tend to feel guilty. This is a never ending circle which leads to delay in weight loss desires. So the next time you have a craving after dinner or just before lunch just follow these simple tips and crush them out on the spot! 1. Sip hot tea or coffee Having a hot drink is a great and low calorie option to handle sweet cravings. A tasteful cup of coffee will not only relax you but fill you up with liquids. You can simply go for those flavored options which are low in calories like – peach, apple, cinnamon or berry for your sweet fix. Topping your favorite cup of coffee with a little sweetened milk is also a great way to handle midday hunger cues. 2. Choose your snacks wisely Sometimes you just have to eat it and get indulged to handle the cravings – go for it, but be smart and choose an item, which does not exceed more than 200 calories. The best option to handle sweet cravings includes a protein packed nut bar, Greek yogurt with berries, or a cappuccino. For salty options you can choose from mixed nuts, cottage cheese or sesame crackers. 3. Eat a pickle If you are craving something salty just have some pickle. Yes, we know that this food item is high on sodium, but it is also really low in calories. One or two spears will definitely do the trick, without adding to your waistline. Just grab a bottle of water to flush some of that sodium! 4. Halt Method Halt before you engage yourself in mindless noshing. If you already had something high in calories and want to grab the next thing don’t forget to ask yourself if you are really hungry? It’s time to say no to mindless munching which is more or less out of boredom, tiredness or loneliness. Try to identify if you are actually hungry or you just want to speak to a friend or take a nap. 5. Sticky activity list on your pantry door Since you tend to reach your pantry every now and then it will be the best place to stick the list of things you have to do. This will help in diverging your interest and reducing the chances of mindless eating and also handle unhealthy cravings. You will surely have to make few changes in you diet until you are actually able to find a satiating, sustainable set of patterns that works best. Just in case you slip or overindulge, don’t worry. The key is to think what to do next.Don’t let the guilt overpower you rather use it as a motivator to make better choices in the future! ...

fatigue and stress

Just the word ‘stress’ alone can make you feel stressed out. If you’re trying to lose weight, stress is the last thing you need. Not only is it harder to stay away from sugary and fatty foods when you’re stressed, research actually shows that it is harder to lose weight when you’re stressed out. Fatigue is a feeling of tiredness. Symptoms and Causes of Stress and Fatigue Fatigue is a feeling of exhaustion, lethargy, tiredness which is distinct from stress and weakness. Unlike weakness, stress, fatigue can be alleviated by periods of rest. Fatigue can have both physical and mental state of being tired and weak. Physical and mental fatigue are different, the two can exist together – if a person is physically exhausted for long time, they will also be mentally tired. Did you know that stress is related to 7 of the 10 most deadly diseases in the United States? Think heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Of course, we have lots of stress factors in our daily lives, like work, the economy, money and family problems. Stress is unhealthy, let that be clear. In addition to all of these psychological factors that can cause stress, you might have physical things that cause stress without you even knowing. For example, poor sleep is a major stressor on your body yet most people report not getting enough sleep – they don’t think it’s that important or just don’t know how much of an impact sleep can have on your well-being. In addition to mental and physical stressors, sensitivity to certain foods, blood sugar dysregulation, not getting enough water and poor air quality can all cause stress. How your body responds to stress? Cortisol, the so-called stress hormone, is released when your body receives a stressor and acts almost like a type of adrenalin. If you’ve heard of stress-hormone before, you probably know that it is bad for fat loss. Cortisol is a diurnal hormone, which means your levels of cortisol should peak in the morning (to help give you energy for the day) and slowly drop down as the day progresses so you can fall asleep at night and recharge for the next day. Basically, cortisol is the hormone of energy and being alert. In a normal stress hormone cycle, cortisol will help burn fat as the day progresses. But if your cortisol cycle is not in balance, it will actually help to make cells less responsive and the fat won’t be burned as easily. If you’re in the department of people that ‘need’ coffee in the morning to wake up, there’s a big chance your cortisol levels are not as they should be. Cortisol and fat loss As mentioned above, cortisol makes cells less responsive, which can make it harder to lose weight. The second way coritsol can make it harder to lose weight is by increasing inflammation. Different types of fat in your body react differently. Your body will store more visceral fat (the type of fat you can grab) and it will be harder to lose weight. Visceral fat releases the same inflammatory signals as stress hormone does. In short: stress signals increase the likelihood of storing more fat. Stress & Fatigue Treatment Fatigue include inflammation, chronic pain, hormonal changes, anemia, poor sleep, depression and stress. If you’re very stressed out and have trouble losing weight, even after trying time after time, your cortisol levels might be the culprid. It can be beneficial to skip the coffee in the morning, exercise regularly and get enough sleep. As well as spending time away from work and other stressors to make sure your stress levels aren’t through the roof.

WHY WEIGHT BEARING EXERCISES ARE THE KEY TO STRONG BONES
Added To Favorites

You may not realize it, but your bones are alive. Every day, your body breaks down old bone and puts new bone in its place. But, beyond 30 years of age, your bones have reached their peak bone mass and you start to lose more bone than what is replaced naturally. The problem in the weight loss process arises when bones are not kept healthy and too much bone mass is lost.Maintaining healthy bones is important in order to boost up the weight loss process and avoid developing osteoporosis, which is when your bones become weak and brittle and you can end up having broken bones. Therefore, keeping a strong bone mass is really important to maintain, especially once you are in your 30s.Physical Exercise is ImportantMost people are aware of the importance of having enough calcium in your diet to ensure that bone density does not decrease. However, it isn’t the only important factor. Being physically active is also super important for preventing osteoporosis and maintaining strong bones for life. This is because increased physical activity can help to building bone during the phases of mineral acquisition and bone consolidation.When it comes to being active, weight-bearing exercises are particularly important in this acquisition and consolidation process. Weight-bearing exercise is any activity you do while on your feet and legs, that works your muscles and bones against gravity.Weight-Bearing ActivitiesDuring weight-bearing exercise, bone adapts to the impact of weight and the pull of muscle by building more bone cells. Consequently, your bones become stronger and more dense and the risk of fracture, osteopenia, and osteoporosis decreases.High-impact weight-bearing exercise includes:1. Walking2. Jogging3. Hiking4. Dancing5. Step aerobics6. Soccer7. Baseball8. Basketball9. Tennis, racquetball10. Low-impact weight-bearing exercises are:11. Using elliptical training machines12. Doing low-impact aerobics13. Using stair-step machines14. Fast walking on a treadmill or outsideIt is therefore recommended that you include one of these forms of activity into your daily routine for around 30 minutes every day. In doing this, your bones will become stronger (and so will your muscles!) and you will have a strong and fit body into old-age.Load-Bearing ActivitiesLoad-bearing exercise where you work to strengthen your muscles against gravity can also help build strong bones.They are also known as resistance exercises and include:1. Lifting weights2. Using elastic exercise bands3. Using weight machines4. Lifting your own body weightYou can introduce weight training moves of varying intensity to work the different muscle groups (and the bones they are attached to). Yoga and pilates can also improve strength, balance and flexibility.You may like to mix up your daily routine so that you include a mix of both weight-bearing and load-bearing exercises which will also help keep your exercise routine interesting.If you have been looking for another reason to exercise, then thinking of your long-term bone health could be just the thing to consider when you are wanting some extra motivation to move your body....
