The 10 Tips-Part 2

Hello lovelies, I’m back after such a longggg gap! Had a lot of things to catch up on! But now that I’m back in, we are gonna take off right from where we had stopped.

Last we had spoken on how important it was to restrict the amount of fats, oils one took in their diet. And how it was important that we incorporate good fat sources in our diet.

Now, let’s get our focus back on certain weight reduction tips.

‘No to Sugars’

 Sugars have sneakily found their way in our diets. Suddenly it has become important to put sugar in each and every item that we make. There isn’t any one item in our daily lives that we do not consume of sugar. There is a birthday you need a cake, there is a wedding, you need towering sweet boxes, your mood is off, you need a big chocolate to get yourself in a better mood! And if you are going out, you so need that coffee, loaded with sugar!

Everything becomes so tasty when there is sugar in it; suddenly the full event becomes all so important! But the thing with sugar is, the tremendous amount of importance that you give to sugar, it doesn’t give you that back. It is like that friend we all had, sugary on the outside, but harms the inner self. You would be better off without it.

Sugar, is a form of carbohydrate that gives instant energy, its use is to give us that peak when required, and then goes down sliding(that’s what chocolate does to your mood too). Now if that amount of energy is not expended, this happens in most of the cases, it gets stored as fat, and the cycle continues. We are a victim of our sedentary lifestyle, the amount of activity that was in the days of our ancestors is unthinkable in this era of technology. Hence, we keep piling up weight, because there is no control on what goes in our mouth.

Many people say, don’t have sugar, have honey, ever thought, what will you get once you crystallize it! Yes, you will indeed get crystallized sugar only, and if it’s even more processed than it already is, only God save you then. I’m not against the beneficial effects that honey has on us, but in the long run, it does more harm than good. Each and everything that we get these days, has been processed till such an extent, that now, it’s harmful to have.

The increase in weight that happens in the body, is the result of a number of factors, and sugar is simply the biggest reason of them all. A reason which is in your control, and can be taken care of!

The easiest way to lose weight is through ‘HARD WORK’

‘Being overweight is hard, so is losing it.’ You need to choose your hard wisely!

One can never lose weight, if done the right way in a day or two or maybe even 10. Logically speaking, your body did not take a day to accumulate that much fat that it did in the first place, and so it won’t take a day to lose it.

What your body is currently is a result of what you have eaten probably through the years. It is always 85% of what you eat and rest 15% is exercise, rest, stress and other factors. So imagine, if your diet is burger, pizza, coke and other high calorie foods, your body would also become that. We were brought up on whole foods like wheat, rice, pulses, milk and fruits. These are by far the healthiest foods that you would find. So, basically never eat foods that your great grandmother can’t recognize as food!

It’s a matter of what choices you make each and every day that would help you in achieving the health goals you want to. It’s never easy, but it isn’t difficult either.

Starting tomorrow, each day I will tell you 10 things for the next 10 days,  that could help you in losing the fat that you want to. Maybe you already know those things, maybe not! I’m sure you have done quite a research, but it’s not worthwhile till the time you actually apply your research and get results!

Yummilicious Banana

Banana is a fruit, which is widely eaten but probably not much appreciated. Mother nature has bestowed upon us this wonderful fruit, which is a whole food in itself. The best part of the fruit is that its easy to eat, just peel it and have it! How simple!! (For the love of simple things!)

The thing with banana is, the yummy it tastes, the nutrient dense it is. Now it’s not that it is the only nutrient dense food that is present in the world, but its benefits have mostly gone unnoticed.

  1. Moderate blood sugar levels: The bananas contain Peptin and Resistant starch that regulates the amount of blood sugar that is present. They rank low to medium on the glycemic index (it’s a measure how quickly the blood sugar levels are raised). But the same thing might not really apply to a diabetic patient. They also reduce the stomach emptying rate.
  2. Weight loss: Banana’s do not increase your weight!!! It’s a myth!!! Get over it. Stop blaming the poor banana every time you weigh yourself on the scale, and for once maybe check your eating habits instead! These are filled with resistant starch and hence lead to the reduced stomach emptying rate!
  3. Happy heart: Banana is one fruit , that is the easiest source available for introducing potassium and magnesium in our diets! Also these minerals help in controlling the blood pressure and yes, it does keep the heart healthy and happy.
  4. Antioxidant rich: This fruit is high in antioxidants and consist of catechin and dopamine. These reduce the risk of various degenerative diseases.
  5. Kidney health: Ideally the bananas are good for kidneys as they provide potassium which is required for various kidney functions. But in case of a kidney malfunction, the banana must be avoided so that no excess pressure is put on our small little beans!
  6. Food for athletes: This is literally food for athletes. It’s easily digested, helps in recovering from cramps, and provide excellent nutrition before and after endurance exercise. So having worked out, and so hard at that, ditch that Starbucks coffee, have a banana instead. It would be lesser healthier calories plus the body would recover faster.

 

Bananas are the easiest fruits that can be added in your diet. That too in a jiffy! The sweetness of the fruit reduces the need to add sugar in your food.!
