Effective Eating Habits for Maximum Weight Loss

Effective Eating Habits for Maximum Weight Loss

Eating habits is one of the key areas that need improvement for maximum weight loss. The reason why eating habits is difficult to change is primarily because it is already a habit. Habits are difficult to change since they are inculcated into the character system. However, if you want to maximize your weight loss results then bear with the need to change.



The goal of this article is to give the best guidelines on healthy eating habits. This does not only help lose weight fast but it also helps to keep you younger longer and give your more vitality in life.

Here are a handful of effective strategies to maximize weight loss and fat loss results:

Take more protein. Protein protects your muscles from breakdown especially when your body calories are down. It also stimulates the production of glucagon secretion which will aid in freeing stored energy for the body.

Eat 5-6 small meals a day. Break the 3 big meals habit into 5-6 small meals a day. More frequent feedings will give your body a constant source of nutrients to metabolize. This helps prevent catabolism or muscle breakdown whenever you are deficient of calories. It also helps you control your hunger and cravings because you are constantly taking in food.

Go with the greens. Green leafy vegetables are great friends when it comes to weight loss. They are full of fibers that keeps you feel full. They also counteract the acidic effect of proteins; thus, it balances your body’s acid levels to keep you performing at your best condition. Greens can also detoxify and cleanse your liver.

Eat starches when needed. Save starches especially after workouts. Your muscles need a source of energy for repair. Never lose the needed carbohydrates especially during workouts or you will starve your muscles, thus, impedes muscle growth. Good sources come from fruits, green vegetables, beans, brown rice, quinoa, and so on.

Eat nutrition dense foods. Eat foods that are dense in nutrients and avoid those foods that are high in calories. For instance, prefer wheat bread over white bread. Other foods that are nutrient dense are cabbage, lettuces, kale, broccoli, and spinach.

Drink enough water. Never dehydrate your cells. You need water to transport the different needed nutrients to the other parts of the body. Lack of water may also result to acid accumulation in the body or on the muscle areas.

You need fats. Stay away from unhealthy fats like trans fats, reduce your saturated fat intakes, and take more monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats coming from these good sources like olive oil, fish oil, flax seed oil, and nuts. Always check the food labels for fats.

Never overeat or eat unplanned. Always plan your meals in a week including the foods you need to eat during snacks or break times. Never eat foods that are never found in your plan.

Stay away from nutritional vices. Clear your fridge from those chips, sodas, ice creams, and other high dense sugars. However, provide a cheat day where you can eat small amounts of them. This still holds your body in nutritional balance but it also cuts your food cravings.

Read food labels. Before you bring them at home, be sure that they are healthy to eat in the first place. Educate yourself of the nutrients you get from the food compared to the nutrients you need to get daily.

Lastly, integrate all of these strategies into your workout plan. These strategies will never be effective if you are not doing some workouts. Whether you want to reduce cellulite, lose weight and fats, or feel healthy, you still need to exercise rather than putting them all to your eating habits.

Fight the Top 5 Weight Loss Challenges

Fight the Top 5 Weight Loss Challenges


The experts at Mayo clinic, in their new book; The Mayo Clinic Diet has identified the main obstacles facing the average person and ways to overcome them.



Challenge 1: I never cook, or I don't find the time to cook

Find recipes that are fast, easy, and nutritious from many of the free diet recipe websites and cooking books. Check out different techniques and styles of cooking such as barbeque, stir-fry, salads, and microwaving, which are quick and easy. Save the hassle by getting pre-frozen packs of green salads, vegetables or pre-packed lean meats. Make extra when you do cook, so you can take advantage of leftovers the next day. If you are really feeling uninspired, eating out or getting takeout is all right once in a while. Just remember to choose healthy items and practice good portion control.

Challenge 2: I never eat vegetables or fruits

Don't like vegetables or fruit? No problem! If chomping on a big bowl of fruit salad doesn't appeal to you, you can boost your daily intake of fruits and vegetables from your soups, casseroles, stews and stir-fries. Or you can add some variety into your fruit and vegetable diets by eating fresh fruit pieces in your cereal and low-fat yogurt. If you are tired of the familiar apples, grapes, and oranges, be sure to try exotic fruits like mangoes, kiwis, and papayas next time!

Challenge 3: I don't feel hungry in the morning so no breakfast

Ever, heard of the story, eat like a king in the morning, like the average man in the afternoon and like a beggar in the night. So, always try to eat something in the morning, because you need your energy in the morning to go through the day. Try, a little something in the morning hours, like breakfast cereal, shakes and non-fat milk, or handy foods that you can grab and go, such as bananas, apples, or low-fat yogurt in single-serving containers. Always, get some milk in the morning, so that it fuels your body with some protein and carbohydrate. Or if you are not a big breakfast boy of traditional morning breakfasts, why not try a sandwich?

Challenge 4: I munch away into the wee hours

Stop this bad habit of eating during late night hours and curb your desires. Make sure you eat 3 times a day properly so you don't get hungry at night, simply don't keep unhealthy snack food around the house, and stay busy in the hours before bedtime to prevent you from wandering to the pantry. If you find the urge to eat, eat fruits, vegetable sticks or pop corn without butter instead.

Challenge 5: I eat a lot while watching TV or in the cinema

Stop this habit of eating in front of the TV, you're munching away mindlessly without looking at your plate and therefore, might overstuff yourself. And always drink some beverages or soup before a meal so that you don't overeat in front of the TV. Try some alternatives such as drinking water or chewing sugarless gum, if you want to munch on something while watching TV. If you really have to snack, munch on something low in calories such as fruits, vegetables, popcorn (no butter), or rice crackers.

Conclusion

With proper planning and mindful about what you eat or drink, you too can make great food choices and be a pro dietician. Avoiding little bad habits can go a long way in achieving your goals.

Ruins of Mohenjo-Daro - The Lost City

Ruins of Mohenjo-Daro - The Lost City


Mohenjo-Daro (Hill of The Dead) was one of the largest and advance civilized city-settlements of the Indus Valley Civilization of South Asia situated in the province of Sindh, Pakistan. Built around 2600 BCE, the city was one of the early urban settlements in the world, existing at the same time as the civilizations of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, and Crete. The archaeological ruins of the city are designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The people of Mohenjo-Daro and Harappa lived in sturdy brick houses that had as many as three floors. The houses had bathrooms that were connected to sewers. Their elaborate drainage system was centuries ahead of their time. Archaeologists have found the remains of fine jewelry, including stones from far away places. This shows that the people of the Indus Valley civilization valued art and traded with other cultures.
