Control Emotional Eating

I find that for people who struggle with sticking to a plan of action, or staying motivated with their health goals and who also struggle with addictive eating habits, addressing both the current and often hidden past accumulation of stress is absolutely critical in achieving lasting success with health goals.

For addictive habits like binge eating and emotional eating, I would agree that emotional stress is a primary contributor as well. You have to know how to stop emotional eating and stop overeating if you want to lose weight and keep it off successfully.

Emotional eating and overeating can’t really satisfy an insatiable appetite anyway. And whether or not you’ve been trying to use emotional eating to soothe feelings of stress, depression, loneliness, frustration or boredom, in the long run, overeating to feed those feelings only makes them worse.

But learning how to stop overeating and control emotional eating can support healthy permanent weight loss and make you feel powerful. You probably already know that overeating high-fat, high-calorie, sweet, salty and unhealthy bad carbs won’t fill that empty void inside for long.

Most of us learn emotional eating at a very young age. We get into the habit of using food to sooth stressful feelings, alleviate boredom, reward and comfort ourselves, boost our sprits and celebrate with others.But even though almost everyone’s overeating, you don’t have to.

Understanding the connection between emotions and eating reveals how behavior can impact weight. Becoming aware of the impact that emotional eating may play in a weight-loss attempt is the first step. If emotional eating is an issue, developing ways to cope without food is vital for lasting weight loss.

Low Sodium Diet

Most of us wants to have a good and a healthy body, right? But what are the things that we need to remember to attain these? Well, sodium is good solution for that because it is a mineral that is found in many foods. It helps keep normal fluids balanced in the body. Most people eat foods containing more sodium than what they need. Our body requires a small amount of sodium in the diet to control blood pressure and blood volume.

However, most people consume many times the amount of sodium needed. Reducing sodium can help to prevent the collection of fluid in the lower legs or abdomen. People with chronic kidney disease must control sodium intake to prevent volume overload, which increases blood pressure and causes swelling.

There are tips that I can give to you in reducing the sodium in your body, of course you need to choose fresh vegetables and fruits like bananas, apple, carrots and broccoli. Choose fresh instead of processed foods when you can. Also Look for foods labeled “low sodium,” “reduced sodium,” or “no salt added.”

Use the Nutrition Facts Label to check the amount of sodium. Look for foods with 5% Daily Value (DV) or less. When preparing food, choose ingredients that are low in sodium or have no sodium at all. So, be wise and eat healthy!

You may noticed that there are a lot of advertisements for fad diets and pills that promise a flat stomach in weeks. But the truth is, you’re only losing muscle and bone mass instead of fat. To safely lose fat from your entire body, you must use a combination of diet and exercise to burn calories more each day than you consume. You’ll lose a pound per week and improve your overall health and fitness.

What is the best thing to do? You must do at least 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous cardio activity at least five days per week. Walk, jog, run, swim, dance, do a gym workout or take an aerobics class. In order to get a flat stomach, you need to focus on your core, including your outer abs, transverse abs, obliques and back. You may noticed that after you lose weight through your cardio exercise and diet, you will have a sleek and toned tummy muscles.

You also need to cut calories from your diet. Eat lean proteins, such as chicken instead of beef and pork. Choose whole grain bread and pasta instead of processed varieties, and select low fat or fat free dairy products. Reduce the amount of fat and sugar you consume. Have fresh vegetables for snacks and fruit for dessert.

And most of all, be patient and diligent in your efforts. Losing weight takes time and attention. As long as you continue burning more calories each day than you consume, you will continue to lose weight, so stay motivated and you will see the results.

Slimming Chocolate Drink

I discovered this slimming chocolate drink when I befriended a mom who is working out at the gym. While I was also doing my workout and exercise at the gym together with my mommy friends, she introduced us on this chocolate drink who helped her lose some weight. Out of our curiosity and the eagerness to also get back our body in shape, we tried a pack of this drink.

This Leisure 18 Slimming Chocolate Drink was extracted through the complex process of using body active enzyme biotechnology plant for the active ingredient. It is made with Chocolate and Garcinia Cambogia Extract, a chocolate drink with highly efficient weight loss effect. It allows you to easily reduce weight within seven days. Its delicious and it is suitable for simplicity fat and those who need to keep their slender figure.

Based on my experience, this slimming chocolate drink works well for me. Ive been using it for more than six months now and so far, so good Ive seen its effectiveness. I did lose some weight because it it is an appetite suppressant. I don’t have the appetite to eat. I may feel hungry but I easily get full. Ive noticed that its even more effective specially when you work out and do some exercise. Since I go to the gym a few months ago, along with a proper diet, this helped me lose weight fast and effectively.

You Are What You Eat

“You Are What You Eat”, do you believe in that old saying? Well, if you’re going to ask me I would say yes because healthy eating is the key to well being. You see, food affects all the cells in our body and in every aspect of our being such as our mood, energy levels, food cravings, sleeping habits and general health. So, if you’re like me who wants to shred off some pounds, aside from exercise, diet is the key to pursue your goal in losing weight.

My gym instructor advised me to eat small and frequent meals and to snack on fruit and vegetables when I’m feeling hungry. He recommend this foods to eat such as fresh fruit and vegetables, fresh juices,  nuts, fish, organic chicken, honey and maple syrup in moderation and herbal teas as well. As long as you follow what is recommended , then it may be maintained as a balanced long-term health and support for your weight maintenance plan.

Diet and Exercise

Here we go again with these bulging tummy problem. I hate to admit but its a sad fact that I’m one of those body conscious women who are having a huge problem regarding this bulging belly since it prohibits me from wearing my favorite fitted dress, top and even swim suit. Oh well, belly fat could be stubborn, but I know that it’s a no match for proper nutrition by hydration, exercise and a you can do it attitude.

While nutrition and exercise are secure strategies for losing the excess fat, they’re actually quite slow since you won’t be able to have the desired results in a day or week because each body responds differently. Diet and exercise should work simultaneously to develop the most beneficial results. Thus, it all needs a lot of patience in order to get good results. Using nutrition and exercise to get a flat stomach may be a gradual process. In an effort to reap the maximum benefits, you need to have discipline. Watch the things you eat on a regular basis and take part in a workable exercise routine.

Fasting to Lose Weight?

Our church music team is currently having their 3 days fasting in preparation for our upcoming concert. I also fast but I only did it for one day. I have tried fasting before for 3 days and we just stayed in the church. My fasting diet is only water and juice but I thanked God that I was able to survive it. For some people,they fast as a way to lose weight or to cleanse the body. Some fasting diets involve drinking nothing but water or eating only raw foods for a period of one or more days, while others restrict food on alternate days. Certain fasting diets only allow liquids like water, juice or tea and that’s what I usually do.

When you fast, your body is actually forced to dip into energy stores to get the fuel it needs to keep going, so you will lose weight. The big question is how long you will keep that weight off?  you will probably gain back the weight you lost and possibly even put on more weight when eating the same calories you did before the fast. Research has shown that fasting on alternate days can help people lose weight, but not for long. I think this one will one work out for me because people who followed an alternate day fasting diet shed weight, even when they ate all they wanted on the non-fasting days.

 

Exercise is the Key

Most of us know the importance of having a balanced diet. But when it comes to physical exercise, many of us are guilty of being lazy in doing it. Well, I am actually one of those who are too lazy enough in doing some exercise.

Did you know that using exercise as a balanced program of personal fitness is often the last thing people consider as they sign up for gym membership? I remember when my mom enrolled in a fitness class for her aerobics and fitness and she wanted me to enroll so I can do some exercise too but I’m still doubting if I could do it or if ever I enroll and if I can continue doing it.

As we all know, Exercise is the key to weight control because it burns calories. If you burn off more calories than you take in, you lose weight. It’s as simple as that and once you begin to exercise regularly, you will discover many more reasons why exercise is so important to improving the quality of your life.

Exercise reduces stress, lifts moods, and helps you sleep better. It can also keep you looking and feeling younger throughout your entire life. I better start to get physically active this time where I need to exercise everyday so  I can start in losing my weight  and live a healthier  lifestyle.

A Sprinkled Diet?

Did you know that there are different kinds of weight loss products available in the market today? Aside from the popular and common diet pills or slimming capsules, there’s also a slimming coffee and a slimming orange juice. Now there is even a sensa reviews about this product that is so called a sprinkle diet which was created to be sprinkled on anything that is eaten which enhances the flavor.

I haven’t tried it yet but it looks promising to me. I better try it when it is already available here in our place. This serves as an appetite suppressant and I think its much better than diet capsules and drinks.
