There are many types of diets and meal plans available to help obese people lose weight and become fit namely &ndash; low carbs diet, high protein diet, Atkins diet, keratin diet, etc. Scientists have now found a new way to lose weight faster which is &ndash;&nbsp;</font></font><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif"><strong>GO VEGAN</strong></font></font><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">and eliminate all types of animal food from your diet. Ru-Ti Huang, of E-Da Hospital in Taiwan, explained that the scientists derived this conclusion after studying the results of 12 different diet trials! Along with this, studies have also shown that a vegan diet is bound to result in weight loss,&nbsp;</font></font><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif"><strong>even without changes to exercise or limits on portion size, calories, or carbohydrates.</strong></font></font></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">The scientific reason behind this is that when you consume vegetarian meals the calorie burnout rate is faster as opposed to omnivorous meals! Along with this, vegetarians are leaner because their diets are&nbsp;</font></font><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif"><strong>low in saturated fat</strong></font></font><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">and focus on the intake of food items that have lesser calories like fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.</font></font></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">Even if you follow plant-based diets some factors need to be taken into consideration to make it contributory to weight loss. Let&rsquo;s discuss them in detail &ndash;</font></font></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 28px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif"><strong>1. Eat Quality Food</strong></font></font></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">To contribute towards weight loss, a vegan should increase the intake of vegetables. fruits, lentils, beans, legumes, nuts, seeds, and healthy plant-based fats e.g: avocado. There are many fatty processed food options available for vegan diet followers also. The key to weight loss via being vegan is not only lowering the intake of animal-based food but also increases the consumption of nutrient-rich food options.</font></font></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 28px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif"><strong>2. Don&#39;t Forget to exercise</strong></font></font></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">Exercise is one of the most influential role players in the process of weight loss. Becoming a vegan and saying no to animal products is not the only factor that will help you lose weight, to do so you will have to MOVE &amp; EXERCISE. In addition to eating a balanced, nutritional meal it is very important to make sure that fitness is part of your weight loss plan too!</font></font></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 28px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif"><strong>3. Be Discipline</strong></font></font></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">Even when you are following a vegan diet, you need to stick to basic fundamentals of self-discipline, sacrifice, and attention towards calorie details. Some important aspects of this content are &ndash; avoid eating out regularly, pay attention to portions, meal planning, etc. Along with this remember to avoid fried foods and rely on baking, steaming, boiling or grilling.</font></font></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 28px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif"><strong>4. Don&#39;t Forget Protein</strong></font></font></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">Protein is a key role player in the weight loss process. It helps to lose weight faster as it boosts satiety, preserves muscle, and boosts up metabolism. When you plan to opt for vegan diets don&rsquo;t forget to pay attention to the protein intake. There are many vegan food items which are high in protein content like:</font></font></span></p><p align="JUSTIFY" style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><br><span style="font-size: 20px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">1 Cup Quinoa (cooked) &ndash; 8gms</font></font></span></p><p align="JUSTIFY" style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><span style="font-size: 20px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">1 Cup Lentils(cooked) &ndash; 17gms</font></font></span></p><p align="JUSTIFY" style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><span style="font-size: 20px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">Firm organic tofu &ndash; 9-11gms</font></font></span></p><p align="JUSTIFY" style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><span style="font-size: 20px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">1 oz almonds &ndash; 6gms</font></font></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 28px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif"><strong>5. Avoid Fruit juices and smoothies</strong></font></font></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">It is commonly observed that people tend to prefer the intake of drinks that combine green veggies and fruit. The juices contain far more calories and are comparatively less filling than the whole product. So when on a vegan diet forget the juices and say yes to whole fruits and veggies!</font></font></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 28px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif"><strong>What else I can eat in a Vegan Diet?</strong></font></font></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">Even after doing all the efforts and being extra careful on every move, humans can&#39;t live a harm-free life.&nbsp;</font></font><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif"><strong>Humans for their existence are used to displacing or destroying large and small life forms</strong></font></font><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">in each and every activity be it erection of buildings, planting seeds, digging crops, burning wood, flying airplanes, driving cars, or operating factories. Then some people have a difference in their intent, which leads to the classification of humans into two major heads &ndash; vegetarians and non-vegetarians.</font></font></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif"><strong>Further, some vegans consciously strive to do no harm to any sentient life, including insects.</strong></font></font><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">This does not mean that vegans do not hurt others inadvertently, but that it is never their aim to do so. Vegans are very specific that they do not consume anything or engage in any activity which causes direct or indirect harm to any living thing. One of the common debating questions faced by vegans is related to honey &ndash;&nbsp;</font></font></span></p><p align="JUSTIFY" style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><span style="font-size: 20px;"><br></span></p><p align="JUSTIFY" style="margin-bottom: 0cm;"><span style="font-size: 28px;"><font color="#0e101a">&ldquo;</font><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif"><strong>IS HONEY VEGAN?&rdquo;</strong></font></font></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">Honey which can be essentially termed as&nbsp;</font></font><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif"><strong>bee vomit</strong></font></font><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">is something that is collected by the honey bees from sucrose-rich flower nectar. It is then stored in the cells of their hive and used as their sole source of nutrition when alternative food sources are not available. The honey that bees produce is stored in their hives for their own purposes.</font></font></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif"><strong>When humans remove honey from the hive, they take something that is not rightfully theirs.</strong></font></font><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">Further, to collect honey, beekeepers temporarily remove the bees from their home and during the process, even the most careful beekeeper cannot avoid inadvertently injuring, squashing, or otherwise killing some of the bees.</font></font></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px;"><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif"><strong>Although the consumption of honey is not deemed as the most important concern for vegans</strong></font></font><font color="#0e101a"><font face="Cambria, serif">the fact worth considering is that it is nevertheless an animal product.

In order to lose weight, people are willing to try just anything – be it the fad diets, new exercise patterns or weight loss supplements! It is amazing to know that Americans spend about $40 billion every year on weight loss related products and programs. But could you image that weight control can be as simple and as cheap as chewing your food more?More Chewing, Fewer CaloriesScientists have suggested that chewing your food for longer may help you lose weight. A study has explicated that munching on each mouthful for longer significantly reduces the amount of calories consumed during a meal. Volunteers who chewed each mouthful 40 times ate 12 percent less food than those who chewed just 15 times. It is thought chewing for longer prevents over-eating by giving the brain more time to receive signals from the stomach that it is full.Slowly chewing the food also appears to lower the levels of ghrelin, the ‘hunger hormone’, circulating in the digestive system. A Chinese study was conducted on 16 slim men and 14 obese men in their late teens or twenties to evaluate the impact of chewing on weight loss. In the first, they wanted to see if the obese men chewed their food differently in comparison to their lean rivals. Each volunteer was given a pork pie and filmed by a secret camera to test how many times they chewed before swallowing. The results found that, although the obese men chewed at the same speed as the slim ones, they swallowed their food much more quickly.In the second experiment, both groups were given another portion of pork pie to chew 40 times and then swallow. Researchers found that when volunteers who chewed for longer consumed 11.9 % fewer calories, regardless of whether they were slender or obese.Further, the blood tests taken 90 minutes after eating showed volunteers also had much lower levels of ghrelin when they had chewed each portion 40 times rather 10-15 times. In a report published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the researchers said eating food slowly could be a simple and effective way of tackling weight problems. In their words – ‘Research indicates eating quickly, gorging and binge eating have a substantial effect on being overweight. ‘Our results showed obese participants chewed less and ingested more quickly than lean ones.’A chief nutritionist at St George’s Hospital, London said although eating more slowly may have some effect on gut hormone levels, the benefits are more likely psychological. She explained that when you gulp down the food without chewing you don’t realize how much you are eating. Chewing the food for longer makes you attentive towards the taste smell, texture and food which is likely to contribute in your better management of hunger levels!Further apart from helping you keep the weight problems away, chewing your food is surely going to contribute towards better digestion and help in the smoother functioning of the overall digestive system in your body!Along with chewing the food around 30-40 times, some of the considerations that should be followed while eating food to are –1. Avoid distractions like TV, music, chatting while eating food!2. Manage the portion size and try to divide your meals!3.

FOODS A NUTRITIONIST WOULD NEVER EAT

Eating in the modern world can be difficult owing to the genetical modifications, chemical treatments, and inhumanely raised food floating around out there. Sometimes compromising is necessary when it comes to food choices, but still there are some food items which food nutritionists would never let touch their lips owing to their harmful impact on health and weight. Here’s the list of items which you should stay away:- 1. Breakfast Cereals Those colorful breakfast cereals which you consider good for your health are highly processed, have high GI because of the high and hidden sugar content (which causes your blood sugars to drop very quickly after eating them), high in sodium, and high in preservatives. So there is only one thing we can say about them – Just don’t eat them. Alternatives: Instead of breakfast cereals opt for quinoa porridge or my homemade gluten free granola. 2. Processed Peanut Butter The key ingredients used in the manufacturing of this product is sugar. As these are laden with sugar and preservatives, processed peanut butter is a big no-no. Alternatives: 100% nut butters found in health food stores or a health foods section of grocery stores. Eg:- Almond butter or ABC (almond, brazil nut, and cashew) nut butter. 3. Salted Nuts Nutritionists avoid salted nuts as the sodium content in pre-salted is sky high. Alternatives: Raw and activated nuts and seeds. 4. Pre-Packed/Frozen Meals Frozen or pre-packaged meals usually contain hidden sugar, high fructose corn syrup, salt and preservatives, that is why they are normally avoided by nutritionists. Alternatives: Home-cooked meals or pre-packaged meals from health food stores. 5. Non-Organic Dairy Milk producers treat their dairy cattle with growth hormones in order to boost milk production. Not only this increases the production but it also increases udder infections and even pus in the milk. It also leads to increased levels of a hormone called insulin-like growth factor in milk. Alternatives:Organic milk, almond milk, rice milk, coconut milk 6. Vegetable Oil Vegetable oils are highly processed and high in trans fats. Normally saturated fats get the blame, but actually trans fats are the ones responsible for the increase in LDL — the bad type of cholesterol that may lead to bad heart health. Alternatives: Coconut oil, olive oil 7. Canned Fruits & Vegetables There’s tons of hidden salt and sugar! The resin linings of tin cans contain bisphenol-A, a synthetic estrogen that has been linked to ailments ranging from reproductive problems to heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. Alternatives: Fresh and organic vegetables and fruits 8. Artificial Sweeteners Since our bodies don’t recognize these substances as food, rather than curbing the desire for sweeteners they actually increase it and ultimately result in weight gain. Alternatives: Rice malt syrup, maple syrup, dates, raw honey (in small amounts). 9. Margarine Margarine is high in “bad fats” also known as trans fats – fats formed during hydrogenation process (which turns liquid vegetable oils into solids). Alternatives: Organic butters, coconut butter, or avocado as an alternative! 10.Processed Meat The animals that make these products are given growth hormones, antibiotics, and other veterinary drugs, and are raised in deplorable conditions that are not good for human health. These meats are also filled with sodium nitrite (a commonly used preservative and antimicrobial agent that also adds color and flavor) and other chemical flavorings and dyes. Alternatives: Organic meat So if you are really serious about losing weight and maintaining a good health swear that you would not touch these unhealthy foods and say a strict no to them just like the nutritionists! ...

Normally saturated fats get the blame, but actually, trans fats are the ones responsible for the increase in LDL &mdash; the bad type of cholesterol that may lead to bad heart health.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);"><strong>Alternatives:</strong> Coconut oil, olive oil<br><br></span><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 28px;"><strong>7. Canned Fruits &amp; Vegetables</strong></span><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);"><br><br>There&rsquo;s tons of hidden salt and sugar! The resin linings of tin cans contain bisphenol-A, a synthetic estrogen that has been linked to ailments ranging from reproductive problems to heart disease, diabetes, and obesity.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);"><strong>Alternatives:</strong> Fresh and organic vegetables and fruits<br><br></span><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 28px;"><strong>8. Artificial Sweeteners</strong></span><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);"><br><br>Since our bodies don&rsquo;t recognize these substances as food, rather than curbing the desire for sweeteners they actually increase it and ultimately result in weight gain.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);"><strong>Alternatives:&nbsp;</strong>Rice malt syrup, maple syrup, dates, raw honey (in small amounts).<br><br></span><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 28px;"><strong>9.

These meats are also filled with sodium nitrite (a commonly used preservative and antimicrobial agent that also adds color and flavor) and other chemical flavorings and dyes.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);"><strong>Alternatives:</strong> Organic meat</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);"><strong>So if you are really serious about losing weight and maintaining good health swear that you would not touch these unhealthy foods and say a strict no to them just like the nutritionists!</strong><br><br><strong>By following some simple guidelines, you can enjoy eating out and still have a healthy diet.</strong> So here are few of the smart choices that I make to avoid being antisocial and at the same time keep my weight loss practices on the right path:<br><br></span><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 28px;"><strong>1. Cafe</strong></span><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);"><br><br>If you are going for a coffee with your friend or colleague, you can make it worthy and harmless for your diet regime. Sometimes you feel that it&rsquo;s just a coffee and it&rsquo;s absolutely ok to take it, but NO. A cappuccino/frappe may be as heavy as a meal as they are loaded with added sugar and fats and hence it becomes important to make a healthier choice:</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; Order a black coffee or a green tea instead of a latte or a whole fat cappuccino. If you want to use a creamer, then ask for almond milk or soy milk rather than taking a whole fat creamer.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; If you like to have something cold, have an iced coffee with stevia or treat yourself with a mocha without sugar.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; If you want to munch on something, avoid high-fat muffins/cakes/biscotti&rsquo;s and opt for nuts!<br><br></span><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 28px;"><strong>2. Movie</strong></span><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);"><br><br>If you are a movie buff and like to catch up on movies often with your friends or family, then go ahead with that but know how to stay healthy and avoid unnecessary calories coming from that junk food being served at the theaters:</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; If you prefer popcorn, then the ideal quantity is 2 handfuls as it is loaded with butter.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; Instead of nachos and cheese, get yourself something else like a low-fat frozen yogurt (if there is any healthy option).</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; Avoid hot dogs and go for no cheese/butter sandwiches.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; Avoid empty calories present in sugar-loaded cola drinks; instead, opt for plain water.<br><br></span><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 28px;"><strong>3. Dining Out at a Restaurant</strong></span><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);"><br><br>Now, this is the most tricky place where all your week&rsquo;s effort can go in vain in minutes. So let me highlight some healthier options, which could be a great help to save your weight loss efforts:<br><br></span><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 22px;"><strong>a) Drinks</strong></span><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);"><br><br>Usually, the evening or the afternoon starts with drinks. So make sure your drinks are not loaded with sodas or any type of sugar syrups. Instead have sparkling water or a fresh lime with soda.<br><br></span><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 22px;"><strong>b) Appetizers</strong></span><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);"><br><br>&ndash; At a Chinese restaurant, order a clear soup (vegetables/chicken) with no MSG or order some steamed veggies. Also, if you like dim sum, relish their taste as well but keep the quantity in mind (have 2 pieces).</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; At a Japanese restaurant, order yourself a miso soup and some sushi. It will make you so full that you can jump straight to the desserts and skip the main course.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; At a Mexican restaurant, have a soup and some guacamole with chips (have 4-5).</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; At an Italian restaurant, have some nice broth soup as it has few calories in comparison to the other creamy soups. You can have some crostini with no cheese or a salad with dressing on the side.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; At an Indian restaurant, have a dal soup/chicken tikka/paneer tikka. Avoid the kebabs as they are loaded with fats.</span><br><br><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 22px;"><strong>c) Sides</strong></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">Some of the super healthy and extremely delicious options for the sides are as under:</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; Instead of fries, go for sauteing veggies.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; Ask for steamed broccoli seasoned with salt and pepper as they are yummy.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; Order jacket potato with some salsa.</span><br><br><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 22px;"><strong>d) Main Course</strong></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; Chinese/Thai main course choices &ndash; steamed brown rice/white rice with veggies or chicken. Avoid lamb!</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; Japanese main course can be again some rice &amp; veggies.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; Mexican cuisine healthier choices can include burrito without the cheese.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; Italian food lovers can enjoy pizza with less cheese and lots of veggies, no sauce pasta with vegetables/olive oil. Avoid high cheese and cream main course options like lasagne.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; Indian main course choices can include dal tadka with some rice or a chicken gravy without ghee or cream. Another option that can be opted is a tandoori roti with some low-fat palak paneer.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">Go light on the main course options as desserts are yet to come!</span><br><br><span style="color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-size: 22px;"><strong>e) Desserts</strong></span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">One should never curb the desire for desserts while going as you have a wide number of healthy choices available. Don&rsquo;t forget to follow the sharing rule while enjoying desserts- have a spoon or two rather than having the whole portion. Here are a few safe choices:</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; A plate of fresh fruits.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; Low-fat yogurt topped with fruits.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">&ndash; Granita or sorbets.</span><br><br><span style="font-size: 20px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51);">Hence by opting for these choices, you can effectively balance your health and social lifestyles. Don&rsquo;t forget that weight loss is easy if you have your way outs. So be smart and create an inspiration around for others as well. Remember that cheating with your diet once a while is definitely OKAY but if you make some lifestyle changes, the journey of weight loss becomes easier and fun. Cheers!</span></p>...

Let’s tell you a story today about 2 friends. One of the friend was a super model and other one was a regular girl. In context of weight loss goals and fitness, both consumed appropriate proteins, vegetables and exercised for about 3-4 times. The problem that they were facing was that the one who was a model was getting fit and the other one always lost self-control and ultimately binge on junk and fatty foods even after a high level of dedication towards weight loss goals! The major reason which was responsible for this was not lack of motivation or self-control but lack of sleep. Yes, lack of proper sleep is also a major barrier in the process of weight loss. No matter, how hard you try to lose weight if you don’t have a well-defined sleep pattern all the time and effort dedicated to weight loss mission goes for a toss! The major contributions of effective sleep in the weight loss are highlighted as under:- 1) Reduced cravings The more time you are awake, the higher is the number calories you consume. According to a study conducted by University of Pennsylvania over the course of seven days it was found out that sleep-restricted participants (sleeping from 4-8 a.m.) gained more weight than their well-rested counterparts (sleeping from 11 p.m. – 8 a.m.), mostly because they consumed 550 calories from 11 p.m. to 4 p.m., a time that the other group spent in bed asleep. 2) It helps burning calories Along with ensuring more energy for daily tasks, a good night sleep also helps in torching calories even when you are not actually working out. American Journal of Clinical Nutrition explicated that people having normal sleep burned 5% more calories when at rest than their counterparts. Along with this, they are likely to burn 20% more calories after a meal in comparison to sleep-deprived people! 3) Encourages Portion Control A Swedish study was conducted on the ideal portion size. the study aimed get a computerized test done on well rested and sleep deprived people in which they could manipulate their serving size on the screen. The results of study brought to light that sleep starved people added 35 additional calories in snacks in comparison to well-rested people. This makes it very clear that the people who are sleep-deprived tend to consume more calories because of inappropriate portion size in comparison to well-rested individuals! 4) Lack of sleep sabotages workout routines It is very clear and simple to understand that when you are sleep-deprived you are likely to feel tired and weak. Since you don’t feel competent enough physically your workout routines are bound to suffer. Sleep is important to recharge your body for daily tasks and since you are deficient you are unable to undertake the daily tasks in an effective manner! 5) Boosts Fat Loss Sleep proves to be really beneficial to boost the fat loss procedure of your body. Even if you intake the same diet as your friend, but don’t take proper sleep you won’t drop as much fat as him. This was also proved by a recent study conducted in the University of Chicago. The weight loss results of people consuming the same calories and slept 8.5 hours versus those who slept for 5.5 hours highlighted that both the groups lost about 61/2 pounds but more than half of that weight was fat for well-rested people, compared to only a quarter for tired participants! 6)Helps you choose healthier food options It is a common saying that you should never go shopping when hungry… exhausted or tired. An Obesity journal published a study highlighting that sleep-deprived men bought nearly 1,300 calories in food more than well-rested men (the study was independent of hunger). So be wiser and take a good night nap before you actually step out for grocery shopping! What’s more – BMI of people who slept for less than 7 hours was more than people who slept more than 9 hours! So this makes it very clear that proper sleep has an equivalent role to play in weight loss process like the diet control and exercising! Tips for better sleep 1. Shut down your computer, cell phone, and TV at least an hour before you hit the bed. 2. Save your bedroom for sleep and relaxation rather than work or entertainment. 3. Create a bedtime ritual. It’s not the time to tackle big issues. Instead, take a warm bath, meditate, or read. 4. Stick to a schedule, waking up and retiring at the same time. 5. Turn out the lights as darkness cues your body to release the natural sleep hormone melatonin, while light suppresses it. ...

In order to lose weight there are millions of diet tips, that you must have heard and tried, but you never seem to stick to them. The reason?? They are all based on short term goals. Considering this, we thought about sharing some real facts about how to eat and think about food, so that your body can maintain a healthy weight and waistline for life.1. Chew your foodThe simplest of all tips to lose weight is to chew your food properly. Journal of Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics found that people who chewed 50-100% more than they usually did decreased their food intake by 9.5% and 14.8% respectively.2. Stop considering ‘Carbs’ as the devilNot only carbs provide energy to your brain but they also help in increasing serotonin level, which actually curbs your appetite and contributes in emotional well-being. Rather than avoiding carbs choose the ones that are high in fiber such as whole grains, fruits and beans as they will keep you full for long.3. Eat whatever you want, but only until you are fullStudies have shown that the 80:20 rule is actually useful to boost up the weight loss process. Eat whatever you like but eat slowly so that your mind gets time to signal your stomach that it is full. Doesn’t it sounds great to have whatever you like, even if in smaller quantities.4. Stop experimenting with new dietsThe bitter truth: all diets are basically the same. An analysis of 50 studies have found out that low-fat or low-carb diets are virtually the same. Rather than finding new diets opt for a way of eating that you like because in long run it is difficult to stick to diets that make you feel miserable.5. Eat lunch earlierRather than waiting for the right time for the midday meal, grab food when you feel the first pangs of hunger. This is mainly because if you keep pushing hunger till the last minute it increases the chances of picking up unhealthy options and also eating more than you would have an hour earlier.6. Stop forcing yourself to eatListen your body’s hunger signals before you actually plan to eat anything. Your body is much wiser than you think: It knows precisely what types of nutrients you need, how much, and how often. When you eat a ton of refined foods that are high in sugar, white flour, unhealthy fats, and salt, your intuition will be tuned off. Try to retrain yourself to trust your body’s internal guide before you actually pick up something to eat.7. When hungry, prefer proteinsResearch shows that eating 20 to 30 grams of protein at each meal can help you build more lean muscle. Since our muscles don’t store protein, steady consumption of it is required for optimal muscle synthesis; simply meaning you can build more of it and burn more calories, even at rest.8. Enjoy your mealsDon’t miss out the pleasure of eating by grabbing food in a rush or while being engaged in some other tasks. In order to lose weight say no to any kind of “meal time distractions” as it ultimately results in overeating and dissatisfaction. Give your meals enough time and savor the flavor of each bite.Simply adopt these changes and be prepared to see positive changes in your body even without making any major variation in your current lifestyle....
