Too much weight is a big problem and people should watch it but also avoid risky diets. Here are some weight loss advices for safe weight loss. If you’re trying to lose weight, you’d be well-advised not to eliminate this common morning pick-me-up from your diet. According to 2010 research published in Food Science and Biotechnology, caffeine stimulates the nervous system, which can send direct signals to fat cells telling them to break down fat. Just make sure you’re skipping the added sugar, which can quickly turn a healthy habit into one that causes you to pack on the pounds.
A little more om in your daily routine could mean a lot less weight on your body over time. In one 2017 study, researchers at McGill University found that mindful meditation helped people lose weight and keep it off over time. This is likely due to the fact that mindfulness can contribute to healthier, more present mealtimes and can help lower stress levels that contribute to impulsive eating.
“Make it easier for yourself to make better choices,” says personal trainer Jess Wolny. “The phrase ‘acquired taste’ is basically redundant for food – all your tastes are acquired, so acquire healthier tastes and you’ll want to eat healthier. Make the change to black coffee instead of cappuccinos or dark chocolate rather than a slab of Dairy Milk, and after a few weeks you’ll never want to go back. One good tip is to try to remember you’re a grown-up and you eat like one. When reaching for a snack, think: would a child want this? Don’t rely on willpower – this stuff isn’t supposed to be hard.”
“If I am trying to get lean I won’t keep foods at home I know I should be avoiding,” personal trainer at UP Fitness Marbella Shaun Estrago. “Even if you have amazing willpower it can be almost impossible to get in after a very long day and eat the food you know you should when there’s a stack of tasty treats just an open cupboard door away.” “Avoid eating fats and simple carbs together, especially once your rate of fat loss begins to stall,” says personal trainer Matt Sallis. “When you consume carbs insulin levels spike (the extent depends on the type and amount of carbs), and insulin’s job is to shuttle any recently ingested energy to the areas of the body that need it most. If you’ve been training hard these nutrients will be delivered to muscle cells to repair and rebuild them. But any excess energy you consume, particularly from fats and simple carbs like sugar, will be stored in fat cells, which is the last thing you want.”
Firefighter Mike DeMaria recently lost 23 pounds by sticking to a strict eating schedule through intermittent fasting. He said he ate only between the hours of noon and 8:00 p.m. and watched the weight melt off. As he began to lose weight, he also felt more energized and started to work out more frequently in the gym, switching between running, a StairMaster, weights, and other exercises. One tip from DeMaria: avoid doing the same workout every day. “Some days I run 5 to 7 miles outside, while others I may run 2 to 3 miles on the treadmill,” he told INSIDER. He also alternates between the StairMaster, quick plyometric workouts — exercises that involve quick, repetitive movements that stretch and contract muscles — with burpees and push-ups, and lifting weights.
Instead of beating yourself up over past weight loss failures, try saying some affirmations to get yourself going. Research published in 2016 in the Journal of Experimental and Social Psychology shows that self-affirmation is significantly associated with positive behavioral changes. So don’t be afraid to stand in front of the mirror and remind yourself of what an amazing job you’re going to do.
“Whether you’re trying to lose weight or manage your cholesterol, the 2019 Best Diets rankings provide each person a chance to evaluate what eating plan will work best for them and their particular needs,” said Angela Haupt, Assistant Managing Editor of Health at U.S. News. “By profiling and providing in-depth data on more than 40 diets, as well as sample meals, consumers can rely on U.S. News for the tools they need to feel empowered to make well-informed lifestyle and wellness changes.” As we say, there’s no one diet to suit every single person.
