Food and weight loss

As the saying goes “abs are built in the kitchen.” So get ready to be in shape with some changes to your eating habits.

  1. Eat food rich in protein:
    • Eating more protein can reduce appetite, cut cravings and increase the number of calories you burn because protein requires energy to metabolize, a high-protein diet can increase calories burned by 80–100 calories per day. Protein is also by far the most filling nutrient. If you want to lose weight sustainably and with minimal effort, consider making a permanent increase in your protein intake. Not only will it help you lose, it will also prevent or at least significantly reduce weight regain, in case you ever decide to abandon your weight loss efforts.
  2. Avoid Sugary Soft Drinks and Fruit Juices:
    • Another easy change you can make is to eliminate liquid sugar calories from your diet. This includes sodas, fruit juices, chocolate milk and other beverages with added sugar. Studies have shown that sugary drinks are strongly linked to an increased risk of obesity. Though small amounts of natural sugars from foods like fruit are absolutely fine, large amounts from added sugar and sugary drinks can be an absolute disaster.
  3. Drinking More Water Can Aid Weight Loss
    • One very simple trick to increase weight loss is to drink more water. Drinking about 8 glasses of water per day can make you burn around 100 more calories.
  4.  Reduce Carbohydrate Intake
    • Cutting carbs is a very effective way to lose weight, as it reduces appetite and makes you eat fewer calories. Not only that, but low-carb diets also have many other benefits for health, especially for people with type 2 diabetes or metabolic syndrome.
  5. Cook at home instead of opting for packed food
    • Cooking at home makes you lose more weight than eating outside or opting for packed food. It’s safe and economical too.

We need to understand how many calories you need per day, depends on whether you want to maintain, lose or gain weight, as well as various factors such as your gender, age, height, current weight, activity levels and metabolic health.

Reducing calories does not have to mean starving yourself. A few simple diet and lifestyle changes like exercise, proper hydration and increased protein and reduced carb intake can help you lose weight and feel satisfied.

 

My rule book says- “you can eat anything in limited portion if that is cooked at home.”

Frankly, you can eat anything but you need to monitor your portion.

Hypothyroidism a thyroid disorder.

An unexplained change in weight is one of the most common signs of a thyroid disorder. Weight gain may signal low levels of thyroid hormones, a condition called hypothyroidism. In contrast, if the thyroid produces more hormones than the body needs, you may lose weight unexpectedly. This is known as hyperthyroidism. Thyroid hormone is responsible for your overall metabolism

Women are as much as 10 times as likely as men to have a thyroid problem. Remember to get your thyroid tested.

I myself is suffering from Hypothyroidism and I get my TSH tested every three months. It’s under control with proper medication and exercise. So if you suspect a thyroid problem, ask your doctor to do a blood test for thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) as well as for thyroid antibodies.

Hypothyroidism and symptoms:

  • Feeling tired and having no energy are issues associated with lots of conditions, but they’re strongly linked with hypothyroidism. If you’re still tired in the morning or all day after a full night’s sleep, that’s a clue that your thyroid may be underactive.
  • Feeling unusually depressedor sad can also be a symptom of hypothyroidism.
  • Skin that’s dry and itchy can be a symptom of hypothyroidism. The change in skin texture and appearanceis probably due to slowed, which can reduce sweating. Skin without enough moisture can quickly become dry and flaky, nails can become brittle and may develop ridges.
  • Unexplained weight gain

How do you manage your weight?

  • Proper medication. Get your TSH tested every after three months.
  • Start with some body activity like walking and cross training.
  • Follow a routine of eating healthy and measured.
  • Relax and meditation. This will calm you down and motivate to get back to shape.
  • Avoid vegetables from the cruciferous family are known goitrogens. They include brussels, sprouts, broccoli, bok choy, cauliflower, cabbage, kale and more.

  Hypothyroidism is not a disease but a hormonal disorder which can be kept under control if treated on right time.

Say NO to sugar but Why?

Say no to sugar as added sugar contains NO essential nutrients and is bad for your health.

Sugar and what are the side effects of it!

  • Obesity and weight gain – Eating excessive amounts of sugar spikes insulin levels and no matter how much you exercise, when insulin is chronically elevated, most of that energy gets deposited and stored in the fat cells.
  • Diabetes – Although eating sugar doesn’t cause diabetes, it can accelerate complications and progress the disease.
  • Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) – When too much sugar is consumed day after day, it gets stored as fat in the liver, causing NAFLD. This can lead to serious problems like liver inflammation, which may progress to scarring and irreversible damage.
  • Heart Disease – Research has shown that drinking sugar-sweetened beverages can raise blood pressure. Also, a high-sugar diet may stimulate the liver to release more toxic fats into the bloodstream. Both factors are known to boost heart disease risk.
  • Aging – Scientists have noted connections between sugar consumption and cell aging, along with skin wrinkling.

Say NO to sugar and help yourself to get a better and fit lifestyle!
