Weight Loss - Know Modern Style Of It!

Weight Loss - Know Modern Style Of It!

As we move from one festive season to the other, suddenly clothes that once were a perfect fit begin to feel a little snug. Not fitting into your clothes is enough to alarm most people and begin the search for the perfect diet. Crash dieting is the worst possible form of dieting. This can seriously harm your body and leave you in a worse condition than you were in, to begin with. Amongst the million different types of diets popular today, a few are more popular than others.

Here are the three most popular healthy diets today.

  1. Paleo Diet: The paleo diet is based on what we imagine the prehistoric cavemen might have eaten. It involves avoiding processed foods, dairy and refined sugars completely and instead of filling up on plenty of proteins and fresh fruits and vegetables. This diet may be tough to follow but can quickly show visible results. Following this sort of diet increases the nutrient value of your food along with helping you lose weight. Some of the other benefits of this diet are that it helps stabilise blood sugar, reduces allergies and clears skin issues.
  2. Atkins Diet: The Atkins diet is an old diet that is still as popular today as it was years ago. This diet focuses on reducing a person’s consumption of carbohydrates. This is a four-phase program. It begins by restricting carbohydrate consumption to only 20 grammes a day. In its second phase, the carb intake is raised by 5grams per week by including nutrient-dense and fibre rich foods in a person’s diet. Once the weight loss stops, this carb intake amount is again reduced by 5 grammes a week. In the third phase of this diet, carb intake is again increased by 10grams until the weight loss becomes gradual and stabilises.
  3. Bowl Diet: As the name suggests, this diet allows you to eat anything as long as it fits into one bowl. In this way, it combats large serving sizes and makes a person conscious of how much they are eating. However, you must be careful of what you eat when following this diet as a salad that is drenched in dressing can have almost as many calories as a burger. Another thing to keep in mind when following this diet is to give yourself a minimum of 10 minutes after finishing a bowl of food to consider having seconds.

Although these diets are trending doesn't mean they are for you, thus, it is always advisable for you to consult a Dietitian or Nutritionist before you start with any diet. 

Cancer Causing Food Items!

Cancer Causing Food Items!

The food you eat is critical for your overall wellbeing as a number of cancers that affect the human body are of gastrointestinal origin. Stick to organic and chemical free foods to live a healthier life since they reduce the risk of cancer substantially. Regular consumption of the food items mentioned below increases your risk of developing cancer, as well as many other conditions and should be avoided at all costs.

1. Microwave Popcorn- Most microwave-popcorn bags are lined with c8, also known as perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) which increases the risk of certain cancers such as kidney, testicular, bladder, pancreas and liver cancer notably. Microwave popcorn also contains an artificial or synthetic butter flavoring called diacetyl which is extremely toxic and obstructs breathing.

2. Canned Tomatoes- While tomatoes are considered to be cancer-fighting foods, their canned counterparts are extremely unhealthy and may cause cancer. This is mainly due to the lining of the cans they are put in which contains a chemical known as bisphenol-A or BPA that has been proven to elevate the risk of infertility as well as prostate and breast cancer. Due to their (tomatoes) high acidity, BPA leaks from the lining of the cans and penetrates into the fruit. Tomatoes should be cooked fresh or stored in glass jars.

3. Processed/Grilled Red Meat- Processed meats such as sausages, prosciutto, bacon, pimento loaf, bologna, hot dogs etc., contain various chemicals and preservatives such as sodium nitrate. This is added to make the meat look fresh and appealing but are, in fact, carcinogenic in nature. Moreover, you should also avoid grilling meat since it releases a carcinogen known as heterocyclic aromatic amines. Another dangerous food item includes smoked meat since it picks up tar from the smoking process. 

4. Farmed Salmon- It is imperative to avoid farmed salmon because they are fed unnatural diets that are contaminated with carcinogens, antibiotics, chemicals, pesticides and so on. They also harbor sea lice, 30 times greater in amount than wild salmon. High levels of PCBs, cancer-causing dioxins and mercury have been found in them. It is advisable to opt for wild sockeye salmon instead of farmed salmon

Drinks That Can Help You Lose Weight!

Drinks That Can Help You Lose Weight!

When it comes to losing weight, everyone stresses about eating right and exercising, but there’s one thing we often forget and that is drinking right. So, drinks such as carbonated drinks and alcohol can add to your weight while others can help you get slimmer. Some of the best drinks that can help you burn calories include:

  1. Water: Water not only keeps you hydrated but can also help you lose weight. The more water you drink, the more calories you will burn. Additionally, drinking water before meals helps reduce your appetite. Drinking water through the day also reduces the urge to snack between meals and helps control your calories intake. If you want to flavour your water, don’t drink packaged juices but instead infuse your water with freshly cut fruits.
  2. Green Tea: Green tea is rich in flavonoids that increase a person’s metabolic rate and the rate of fat oxidation. There are many types of green tea available today and one of the best types of green tea is the Matcha green tea as this is the richest source of antioxidants. Do not add milk or sugar to green tea.
  3. Mint TeaTea made from fresh or dried peppermint leaves has a very low calorific value and is a great substitute for soft drinks and processed juices. This type of tea is ideal for the summer and winter months and is also rich in antioxidants. Once again, you can use honey to sweeten your tea.
  4. Black CoffeeCoffee can keep you awake but it can also help you lose weight. Coffee is rich in chlorogenic acid compounds that act as antioxidants and slow down the body’s production of glucose. Simultaneously, this lowers the production of fat cells. Black coffee can also suppress your appetite and stimulate your metabolism. Plain black coffee has negligible calories as long as there is no sugar added to it.
  5. Vegetable Juice: Vegetables are a rich source of vitamins, minerals and fiber while being low in calories and fat content. Thus, you can never have too much vegetable content in your diet. Drinking vegetable juice before meals reduce your serving size and your total calorie consumption. When juicing vegetables, using a juicer reduces the fiber content in your juice and hence, it is better to blend the raw vegetables.
  6. Grapefruit Juice: Grapefruits are low in calories and high in fiber content. It also helps manage insulin levels and energy metabolism. Like other juices, the ideal time to drink a glass o grapefruit juice is 20 minutes before meals.
