Best weight loss.

This is a very hard question to answer. Everyone is different and how our bodies react to dieting, exercise and certain foods are all different. Therefore I would suggest that you research what would work for you. Trail and error is, unfortunately, the only way, the best weight loss does not exist.

There are so many diets and diet products on the market how do I possibly decide, how do I know what will work for me? How do I know what the best weight loss method is?

Well, here I can give you some indications of what over the years has proven the best for me and also what would normally work for different lifestyles. I read a very interesting article once about a middle-aged man and how a simple mind shift has changed his life. The man made some minor changes to his lifestyle and that really had a great impact on his life. He would, for instance, stand on the subway instead of sitting so he would burn way more calories this way. I always find it so astonishing when I hear about cases like this as it changes one’s life. There are numerous ways to lose weight some fast other not so fast. I think the main aim is that personally, it was always very important to me to have a weight loss regime that was healthy.

There is really no point to lose some weight but damage your heart in the process. Once again I am just guiding you and advising you on what worked for me so it will be up to you to do more research on the subject and find that thing that works 100% for you. I will give you some tips on what I have found works for me.

Eat a high protein breakfast

– Firstly here are some breakfast ideas. Scrambled eggs: with veggies, fried in coconut oil or olive oil. An omelette: with cottage cheese and spinach (my personal favourite).

A salad full of veggies

 

Stir-fried tofu: with kale and dairy-free cheese. Chicken livers are also a great source of protein.

Greek yoghurt: yoghurt, seeds and berries. Protein can reduce hunger and boost metabolism, but you won’t lose weight if you don’t eat fewer calories than you burn. It is definitely possible to overeat and negate the calorie deficit caused by the higher protein intake, especially if you eat a lot of junk food. By replacing carbs and fat with protein, you reduce the hunger hormone and boost several satiety hormones. This leads to a major reduction in hunger and is the main reason protein helps you lose weight. It can make you eat fewer calories automatically. As you are losing weight, your body loses both muscle and fat. During this process, it is especially important that you continue to eat enough protein in your diet. Having adequate protein coming in from your food fuels fat burning while preserving calorie-burning lean muscle. Eating more protein is the easiest way to lose weight. Some other foods that are high in protein are Almonds, Chicken breast, Oats, Cottage cheese, Broccoli and Meat. Vegetables high in protein are Spinach, Kale, Broccoli, Sprouts, Mushrooms, Brussels sprouts and Artichokes. Seafood is an excellent source of protein because it’s usually low in fat.

 

 

Avoid sugary drinks and fruit juices – Life won’t stop if you have a soda now and then but the fact are it is not good for you and can really harm your health in the long run. There are many downsides to sugary drinks and one of them might be the inability to lose weight. Research strongly indicates that sugar consumption is associated with excess body weight and Type 2 diabetes. The 2015 U.S. Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee recommended that Americans consume no more than 10 percent of total calories in the form of added sugars. At 2,000 calories a day, that’s 200 calories from added sugar. There are 16 calories in one teaspoon of sugar, so that works out to 12 teaspoons a day. Let’s be clear what we’re talking about: According to the Food and Drug Administration, “Added sugars are sugars added during the processing of foods, including sugars, syrups, caloric sweeteners and naturally occurring sugars that are isolated from a whole food and concentrated so that sugar is the primary component (e.g., fruit juice concentrates).” And, according to the advisory committee, nearly 50 percent of our added sugar is from sugar-sweetened beverages: soda, fruit punch, sports and energy drinks, or souped-up coffees and teas.

 

There’s another reason to focus on beverages. You can chug some soda or juice a lot more quickly than you can eat a cookie or candy. Also, when you drink something, it’s absorbed very quickly into the bloodstream. If you drink something with a high sugar content, blood sugar will spike quickly. A simple glass of juice can cause the body to go into a quite a metabolic whirl.

I encourage taking ownership of the sugar you consume. You should be aware of what foods have added sugar so you can make informed decisions. If you are mindful of the sugar in beverages and make an effort to decrease intake, you will be able to enjoy sweets and treats when you want them without seriously causing risk to your health.

Let’s take a look at some common beverages and their sugar content.

Soda

One 12-ounce can have nearly 10 teaspoons of sugar. If you crave soda, I suggest pouring a small serving (two to four ounces) on occasion and savouring each sip. Really, sip it. Many people have switched to diet soda, but there’s a catch: Scientific studies are finding that artificial “sugar-free” sweeteners seem to have damaging effects on the body, such as promoting abdominal fat and obesity. So whether you’re drinking regular or diet, watch the portion size and view soda as a dessert to enjoy occasionally. I strongly recommend that you think twice before drinking yourself overweight.

Careful of what you juice – I always warn people about what they drink as a simple drink can sometimes be as unhealthy as a complete fast food meal. Just 12 ounces of orange juice, even if it’s from 100 percent fruit, has just over eight teaspoons of sugar. That’s a lot of sugar in one glass. So try to drink less of it. If you buy smaller containers or simply buy juice less often, you will drink less. Out of sight, out of mind! Start watering it down. Pour three-quarters of the glass and fill the rest with water or bubbly water. Put slices of fruit in the mix to add flavour. Think of it this way, you won’t eat ten oranges, would you? No one would but by juicing them you could easily have these in a serving. Be careful of juices smoothies ext as we can drink a large quantity of food that has been juiced without knowing it. Make sure you think before you drink, we forget how much calories we can consume in a simple drink..

Choose weight loss friendly foods Here are some wonderful, tasty foods that will help on your weight loss journey. Whole Eggs are among the best food to eat when you want to lose weight. They are high in protein and can make you feel full on a very low amount of calories. One study of 30 overweight women showed that eating eggs for breakfast, instead of bagels, increased satiety and made them eat less for the next 36 hours. Leafy greens include kale, spinach, collards, swiss chards and a few others. They have several properties that make them perfect for a weight loss diet. Eating leafy greens is a great way to increase the volume of your meals, without increasing the calories. Numerous studies show that meals and diets with a low energy density make people eat fewer calories overall. Leafy greens are also incredibly nutritious and very high in all sorts of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. This includes calcium, which has been shown to aid fat burning in some studies. Oily fish like salmon is incredibly healthy. It is also very satisfying, keeping you full for many hours with relatively few calories. Salmon is loaded with high-quality protein, healthy fats and also contains all sorts of important nutrients. Cruciferous vegetables include broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and brussels sprouts.Like other vegetables, they are high in fibre and tend to be incredibly fulfilling.What’s more… these types of veggies also tend to contain decent amounts of protein. Some beans and legumes can be beneficial for weight loss.This includes lentils, black beans, kidney beans and some others.These foods tend to be high in protein and fibre, which are two nutrients that have  been shown to lead to satiety. As mentioned above, meals and diets with a low energy density tend to make people eat fewer calories.

Most foods with a low energy density are those that contain lots of water, such as vegetables and fruits.  But you can also just add water to your food… by making a soup. Some studies have shown that eating the exact same food, except made in a soup instead of as solid food, makes people feel more satiated and eat significantly fewer calories. Dairy products tend to be high in protein. One of the best ones is cottage cheese… calorie for calorie, it is mostly just protein with very little carbohydrate and fat. Eating plenty of cottage cheese is a great way to boost your protein intake. It is also very satiating, making you feel full with a relatively low amount of calories. Dairy products are also high in calcium, which has been shown to aid in the fat burning process. Avocados are a unique type of fruit. Whereas most fruit is high in carbs, avocados are loaded with healthy fats. Avocado is extremely versatile and always makes for a healthy versatile snack. Despite being high in fat, nuts are not inherently fattening. They’re an excellent snack, containing balanced amounts of protein, fibre and healthy fats. Studies have shown that eating nuts can improve metabolic health and even cause weight loss.

Despite grains have gotten a bad rap in recent years, there are some types that are definitely healthy. This includes some whole grains that are loaded with fibre and contain a decent amount of protein as well. Notable examples include oats, brown rice and quinoa. Oats are loaded with beta-glucans, soluble fibres that have been shown to increase satiety and improve metabolic health. Eating chilli peppers may be useful on a weight loss diet. They contain a substance called capsaicin, which has been shown to help reduce appetite and increase fat burning in some studies. This substance is even sold in supplement form and is a common ingredient in many commercial weight loss supplements. Most health experts agree that fruit is healthy.

Numerous population studies have shown that people who eat the most fruit (and vegetables) tend to be healthier than people who don’t. Another excellent dairy food is yoghurt. Yoghurt contains probiotic bacteria that can improve the function of your gut. Having a healthy gut may potentially help protect against inflammation and leptin resistance, which is the main hormonal driver of obesity.

Eat mostly whole, unprocessed foods Rich in phytochemicals –plant chemicals that have protective or disease preventive properties. Contain more vitamins and minerals than processed foods. Although some processing enriches foods with vitamins and minerals, overall whole foods are more nutrient dense. Contain more fibre and beneficial fats.

Eat slowly – All About Eating Slowly. The benefits of slow eating include better digestion, better hydration, easier weight loss or maintenance, and greater satisfaction with our meals. Meanwhile, eating quickly leads to poor digestion, increased weight gain, and lower satisfaction. … Meals are stressful.
