Useful advice for weight loss

  • Never try to deceive Nature. Without hard work you will never get results. In our modern society a lot of people want to lose weight without changing anything in their eating habits and lifestyle.
  • Don’t let food run your life. We eat to live; we do not live for eating. The taste of food is not worth the price of the excess pounds that an overweight person gets by overeating.
  • Lemon-water can be used as a natural appetite suppressant and an aid in the digestion process. Add freshly squeezed lemon juice to a glass of water. Slowly sip a couple of glasses of this drink throughout the day. It will help you to control your appetite, and alkalize your inner environment.
  • Long and proper chewing of your food will assist you to eat less and not to overeat. It will release the cholecystokinin (CCK) hormone, which sends a message to the brain letting you know that you are full already.
  • Use more sore apples and other sore fruits and berries because sore taste actually promotes metabolism and circulation.
  • Tofu increases your metabolism and can lower your cholesterol.
  • High-fiber food in the form of bran improves glucose metabolism and glucose tolerance, induces satiety by increasing gastric filling, and it stimulates the release of appetite suppressing hormones.
  • Use more spices like cayenne pepper, mustard seeds or other fiery spices in your meals. All of them are able to speed your metabolism, and burn more calories.
  • Drink daily 6 to 8 glasses of pure water because dehydration can slow down your metabolism by 3%.
  • Don’t drink during your mealtime. When you drink during the mealtime, you actually drown your enzymes with liquids. With drowned and diluted enzymes you cannot properly metabolize your meal. This can lead you to slowly gain excess weight.
  • Do not drink too many iced beverages. It can weaken your digestive fire, and this contributes to weight gain. Actually, any temperature extreme of foods and beverages can lead to weight gain. This happens because too hot or too cold foods and beverages will either scald or freeze your vital digestive enzymes. This in turn slows down your metabolism, all digestive processes, and assimilation and thus contributes to weight gain.
  • Consuming large quantities of any non-caloric beverages will keep your stomach full and reduce your hunger pangs. Therefore, dilute your favorite juices with plain or sparkling water. It will cut some of your calories and meanwhile will keep you full.
  • Drink warm fluids, like tea, an infusion, or soup, about 20 to 30 minutes before mealtime. After mealtime drink water two hours later if your food was carbohydrates, and four hours later if it was protein food.
  • Limit your alcohol consumption, especially beer. Alcoholic beverages pack in a significant number of calories.
  • Expose your body to sunlight. Sunlight steps up our body’s serotonin production. Serotonin is the feel-good brain chemical that controls appetite. That is why you may notice that when there is cloudy and murky day we usually have craving to eat something heavy and essential than when it is sunny. It is important to get only early morning and evening sunshine because only at these times is sun therapy beneficial. You should try absolutely to avoid exposure between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
  • Sleeping in a cold room is useful for weight loss. Just as exercise helps burn more calories, sleeping in a cold room will cause your body to burn more calories to maintain its normal temperature. When the body is chilled, the stress hormone opens fat cells and fat stored there start burning.
  • Workouts (real good ones) suppress the appetite. Usually people that perform real good workouts regularly (three or more times weekly), report that they experience appetite suppression lasting up to several hours after exercise. In the contrary not real good workout can increase appetite. The workouts should be aerobic (the kind that uses the large muscle groups for a prolonged period of time). Among aerobic (rhythmic) exercises especially good are brisk walking, jogging, skipping, bicycling, stair climbing, aerobic classes, and swimming.
  • Exercise causes fat to be replaced by muscles. Aerobic exercises are especially good for weight loss. Our body’s basal metabolic rate depends on the proportion of lean muscle to fat tissue. Each pound of muscle burns about 30 to 50 calories a day to stay alive, while fat burns only 2 to 3 calories per pound. So when your total body muscle tissue to fat ratio is high, you burn more calories during the day and, on the contrary, if this ratio is low, meaning that you have a high percentage of fat, you burn fewer calories per day.
  • Aerobic exercises raise metabolic rate and keep it elevated for a while even after stopping them. This means that after exercises (while you are resting) your body still burns calories in higher rate.
  • It is important to have regularity in your workout exercises. Fitness is lost if you exercise two or less days per week. Every time you start doing your fitness exercises after a one-week break you start from zero.
  • Emotions have a terrific effect on the accumulation of excessive fat, and must not be overlooked. Emotions have a powerful influence on our glands, especially on the endocrine gland. Uncontrolled emotions, such as for example anxiety, becomes a trigger point for your overeating. Stress, depression, fear, boredom interact with weight loss process. They actually can contribute to weight gain. So, in order to successfully lose weight and then maintain it, it is very important to pay attention to our emotional and mental nature as well.
