If you’ve been thinking that starvation is the secret to being in tip-top shape, you better think again. The perfect diet, at least according to us, does not involve deprivation (or misery). In fact, we encourage our readers to be food enthusiasts who look forward to their next meals. However, how is it even possible to eat to get slim? The trick here is to consume foods that promote satiety. Some foods are more filling than others. The more nutritious and filling foods with very few calories are those that are packed with fiber and protein. The following are some foods that can seriously fill you up without causing any weight gain: 1. Whole Grains Always go for 100 percent whole grains such as oatmeal and brown rice. These options are highly filling and the fiber helps balance your blood sugar levels. This makes oatmeal an excellent breakfast choice unlike your traditional sugar-laden cereals, because it stabilizes your blood sugar and helps curb unwanted cravings for the day. Add in a protein by using milk in your oatmeal or by having chicken with your brown rice. 2. Black Rice Not a lot of people know about black rice but boy, does it pack a nutritional punch at an amazing amount of calories. Half a cup of cooked black rice will give you 90 calories versus 108 in brown rice. In addition, it’s packed with antioxidants and fiber and has very little carbohydrates compared to other rice types. Instead of having it as a main, add it to your salads, wraps and side dishes. 3. Beans Legumes are excellent filling foods as they give you a hefty dose of fiber and protein. Research shows that they may even help prevent many diseases, apart from keeping weight off your waistline. Beans consist of complex carbs, a myriad of antioxidants, fiber and other vital nutrients. Our favorites our chickpeas, kidney beans, lentils, black eyed pea, edamame, black beans and fava beans. All these options work great in salads, stews and wraps! 4. Potatoes Despite their bad rap, potatoes are a powerful craving extinguisher. According to one study, boiled potatoes were the highest ranked filling food, among other health foods such as whole wheat bread and brown rice. People felt fuller and ate less after having them. Just make sure you either bake or boil, and not fry. Sweet potatoes are a great too! 5. Eggs A study found that those who consumed eggs for breakfast ate fewer calories throughout the day compared to those who had a bagel. Eggs are a complete protein source, which means they contain all nine essential amino acids that your body cannot produce. These amino acids stimulate the release of hormones that help suppress your appetite and keep you satiated for long periods. Here’s a tip: Don’t throw away the yolks! ...

Your body is highly dependent on the nutrients it gets from food to function smoothly and optimally. However, the modern world is plagued with increasingly processed, calorie and sugar-laden, nutritionally poor foods that are not only responsible for weight gain but a number of health conditions as well.1. High Blood PressureAlthough high blood pressure does not have any symptoms, it may lead to serious complications such as heart disease and stroke. An unhealthy lifestyle can increase your risk of being overweight or obese, which can dramatically offset your risk of high blood pressure. Having a larger body size means that your heart has to work harder to pump blood to all parts of your body.2. Nutrient DeficiencyYour diet should contain a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, meat and other whole foods that provide plenty of nutrients your body needs to function properly. However, research shows that an average American consumes inadequate amounts of vital nutrients like fiber, potassium, calcium and vitamin D. There are many types of nutrient deficiencies that cause a set of problems each. For example, insufficient calcium can cause bone loss, not getting enough iron may contribute to anemia and lack of potassium may cause muscle weakness and fatigue.3. DepressionOmega 3 fatty acids are good fats many people aren’t getting enough of nowadays. Lack of omega 3s in your diet will affect serotonin levels in your brain, which can result in mood swing and depression. Not getting enough vitamin B6 and B12, zinc, selenium, magnesium and iron can cause depression as well. To combat depression, it’s vital to avoid processed food and sugar and stick to whole foods such as fish, nuts, seeds and whole grains as much as possible.4. Heart DiseaseIt’s no surprise that an unhealthy diet will contribute to coronary heart disease. The condition is characterized by the narrowing of your blood vessels, which leads to limited oxygen and blood supply to the heart. People who consume too much trans fat and sugar while not working out have a higher risk of coronary heart disease than others.5. Type 2 DiabetesType 2 diabetes is a health condition in which your body cannot process glucose. A large number of factors can contribute to diabetes, some of them include, a poor diet high in sugar, calories and processed food, lack of activity, a sedentary lifestyle and excessive stress.6. CancerPoor nutrition and lack of exercise can seriously weaken your immune system thus, inhibiting the body from being able to fight certain types of cancers in the long term. In addition, people who do not get sufficient nutrients from their diet are at a higher risk of cancers linked to nutrition and immune deficiency.7. ObesityObesity is one of the most common health concerns in the modern society due to inadequate nutrition and inactivity. The number of children and adults who are affected by obesity increases each year in the US and the WHO considers obesity as a global epidemic. Consuming calorie-dense, nutritionally poor sources rich in trans fat and sugar is likely to lead to obesity, especially if not paired with sufficient activity....

The great outdoors being a cold place during the winters isn’t news for anyone, neither is it a good enough excuse to skip a workout or an entire month of working out. However, it is tempting to settle for any excuse to not exercise when it’s cold, therefore, it’s no surprise that most people gain more weight during the winter season. To get back into your fitness game, it’s important to understand the difference between genuine reasoning and excuses.The following are some common excuses people make during winters and how you can avoid them-1. The bed is warmWe get it, it’s cold outside and you’re way too comfortable and warm to get out of bed but it’s important that you make your health a priority in such situations. One great way to get out of bed during the winter is set multiple alarms on your phone with messages to yourself. Sometimes being brutal with these messages can actually help. You can also install a heater in your room and set the timer so that it stops twenty minutes before it’s time for you to wake up. Make sure your workout gear is ready the night before so that you just have to get out of bed and put them on. Getting a workout buddy (preferably one that a bigger fitness fanatic than you) is also an excellent idea.2. I’m not motivated enough in the winterWe hear this so much that our minds are etched with the notion that our bodies just can’t deal with working out in the winter, however, this is far from the truth. Sure, you may feel sluggish or blue, but if you have a well thought out plan with milestones and an achievable goal, chances are you’ll be running after them. This could be as simple as increasing your workout time to training to run a marathon in spring.3. Nobody can see my body under all these layers anywayYour heavy attire should not be a reason for you to let yourself go. Weight gain is linked to a myriad of health complications and there’s a high chance you’ll regret skipping all those workouts once spring hits. You don’t want to put all that hard work to waste and gain a few extra pounds in the winter – you should keep them off at all times. In addition, once the weather gets warm again, you may shy away from wearing your summer clothes and beach outfits after gaining weight – it’s not worth it.To stay on track, never miss a workout. If you’re unable to work out, try to get at least 15 minutes of exercise in a day. This will ensure that you don’t become lazy....

<p><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&quot;You are standing in front of the mirror, frowning at your bulges...&quot; The next step is to browse through multiple diet articles, contacting the dietician, cutting on carbs, eating misery, and exercising vigorously. The question that arises is will these activities help you lose weight?</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">The answer is NO.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">Today we are debunking some of the common myths about diet and exercising so that you get some clarity in your weight-loss regime before you start torturing your body again. We know you can identify yourself with some or most of the following misconceptions, but the important thing is to see through them and start working towards a higher goal- the one of fitness.</span><br><br><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 28px;"><strong>Myth 1: Carbohydrates add layers of fat</strong></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">This is not true as some carbohydrates have high fibers that are responsible for giving your body the much-needed boost to work efficiently all day long. The way to go ahead with weight loss is to offer your body the necessary carbs and yet restrain yourself from piling up those extra pounds.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">Remember that drastically cutting your carbohydrate count will only lower your energy levels and will lead to digestive problems. A simple solution to this problem is to go for &quot;GOOD CARBS&quot; like whole-wheat pasta, oats, brown bread, and brown rice, beans, apple, etc.</span><br><br><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 28px;"><strong>Myth 2: Eating smaller meals in a day</strong></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">It is believed that eating smaller meals frequently helps to increase metabolism and result in weight loss. The actual reason why eating small meals is good is that they help you to get control over your hunger pangs. But this has no significant effect on your metabolism if you are consuming the same number of calories.</span><br><br><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 28px;"><strong>Myth 3: Any kind of fat is a strict no-no</strong></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">Do not believe in the fat-free labels because they add layers of fats to your body. Being on a low-carb or low-fat diet is not going to help you lose weight. Instead of abstaining from fats, you should try to include healthy and essential fats like healthy nuts or fishes like mackerel, salmon, or fruits like avocados.</span><br><br><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 28px;"><strong>Myth 4: Eating late at night leads to weight gain</strong></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">Many crash diets tell you to shut-off your kitchen doors after 7 pm but, late evening eaters can find solace in knowing that your calories cannot read the time. The truth here is that since you are not doing any physical activity so the calories will take a longer time to burn-off in the night. Eating a light dinner is an excellent option if you follow it up with a 15-20 mins walk.</span><br><br><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 28px;"><strong>Myth 5: Having 3-6 meals in a day helps to reduce weight</strong></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">As per the research studies published in the International Journal of Obesity (2001) and Scandinavian Journal of Nutrition (2004), if equal calories are being consumed in 3 meals or 6 meals per day, then no significant difference has been found in total energy expenditure. Your metabolism hardly gets any boost by consuming smaller meals in a day. The important weight-loss lesson here is to keep a watch on your total calorie intake rather than the number of meals you have in a day.</span><br><br><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 28px;"><strong>Myth 6: Eat breakfast like a king and dinner like a pauper</strong></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">There is a famous saying, &lsquo;eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper.&rsquo; The reality is that in an attempt to eat a heavy breakfast, you tend to gorge on more unnecessary calories than required. A heavy breakfast does not make you feel any less hungry during the rest of the day. So, there is no need to jumpstart your body&rsquo;s metabolism early in the morning. It is important to structure your eating habits according to work-culture and lifestyle.</span><br><br><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 28px;"><strong>Myth 7: Artificial sweeteners are healthier than sugar</strong></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">Many studies have shown that artificial sweeteners can induce slow and steady weight gain. As your body is tricked by these sugar substitutes, you crave for more sugar-loaded foods. This can lead to severe problems with digestion. Putting a small pinch of sugar in your tea or coffee is a better option than going for an alternative.</span><br><br><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 28px;"><strong>Myth 8: You can eat anything you want if you are hitting the gym</strong></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">According to the American Dietetic Association, &ldquo;Weight loss is a simple matter of calories in versus calories out.&rdquo; If you do not get your hunger and food intake under control, then even exercising cannot help you out. The most balanced diet regime should include filling foods such as fiber-rich veggies and healthy proteins along with a good workout routine.<br>We hope that we were able to bust some of the popular diet myths that have been proving as a roadblock in your weight loss efforts!</span><br><br><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 28px;"><strong>Most Common Exercise Excuses Busted</strong></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">Every new year we decide to kick out everything that is standing in the way of our exercise routine and attempt to get fit. Usually, it doesn&rsquo;t last too long. Here&rsquo;s the reason- neither do we simplify our workout routine nor do we make up our mind to prioritize our health.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">Today we have got the list of 8 most common excuses and busted them so that they no longer block your way. How about getting started today for maximum benefits?</span><br><br><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 22px;"><strong>1. Commitment Issues</strong></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">To resolve these issues pre-pay for gyms and workout classes. When you sign up you&rsquo;ve committed, and not going means you&rsquo;ll probably lose what you paid for. No one wants to lose money!</span><br><br><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 22px;"><strong>2. It&rsquo;s not for ME</strong></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">This is the most common excuse because it can be hard to go for a workout when you feel too out of shape. Remember that exercising not only improves your overall health but also boosts your confidence- and that is exactly what you need.
