There’s an old saying: If you find yourself standing in a deep hole with a shovel in your hands, stop digging. Yet when it comes to our rapid weight loss, most of us dig ourselves a little deeper into the hole every single day.
In this video we’ll explore 6 bad-habits that may be keeping most people from losing that weight and keeping it off.
It can be hard to make time for breakfast during the rush to get out the door in the morning, but if you’re trying to lose weight or keep it off, make the extra effort to fit it in. Breakfast kick-starts your metabolism, forcing it to begin burning calories.
Your first meal of the day should include proteins, a small portion of a healthy fat food, and combined complex carbohydrates.
2.Consuming Sugary Drinks:
Sugary drinks like soft drinks, which contain a high amount of added sugar or other artificial sweeteners are the major contributor to the obesity epidemic in the world. People who consume sugary drinks do not feel full when compared with the same amount of calories consumed in the form of solids. Try to drink 8-10 glasses of water everyday instead. Consuming water helps flush away body toxins. and maintain your body weight.
3.Eating too quickly.
A busy life and working schedule force us to eat faster. There are days when we don’t even have time to sit still and spend a few minutes eating peacefully. It is said that it takes almost 20-minutes for the stomach to inform the brain that it is full. Thus, it is important that we eat slowly and take at least 20-minutes to have a meal. This will aid in better digestion too. Follow the rule that says a single bite should be chewed a minimum of 20-times.
4.You Avoid All Fats
You know that eating trans fats can increase your risk of heart disease, weight gain and stroke, so you’re smart to stay away. But not all fats need to make your “do not eat” list. Consuming healthy fats like flax-seeds, Avocado, and nuts can actually help you slim down and stay healthy. Fats not only help us absorb many of the vitamins from our diets, but they also help keep us fuller longer, which can aid weight loss efforts.
5.Eating before going to bed
Most likely, we eat late at night because it’s a habit – not because we are hungry. If you were to keep track of all you ate at bedtime for one week, you may notice a pattern. You may be consuming something sweet and high in calories. If you feel you must eat something, select a piece of fruit.
Keeping a set sleep schedule should enhance your sleep. If you don’t have any set time to go to bed, your body’s chemistry may get out of synch.
This creates hormonal imbalances that trick you into believing you will only be satisfied if you eat.
