Why Fiber Is Key For Dieting

  First of all let me explain what fiber is…     Fiber is an indigestible part of all plant foods. It is found in fruits, vegetables, grains and beans. Your digestive system cannot stomach fiber, so it is excreted undigested. Well, you may think you don’t need fiber, because it’s excreted undigested, but that’s not true. Let's imagine the following picture: You overeat at least once or twice a week, more often at weekends, and your regular menu doesn't include much fiber. Well, this might be your lifestyle; however you should consider that it may cause you lots of health problems like: - indigestion - discomfort stomach aches  - gases in the digestive tract  - constipation  - hemorrhoids  - you got tired faster  - can't concentrate on what you're doing  I mean you become less productive at work and more irritable at home. Besides all this, you gain weight and that’s the moment when you realize you have a problem. In order to solve a problem, yo

You Should Know About the Hormones that Regulate Hunger for Weight Loss

You Should Know About the Hormones that Regulate Hunger for Weight Loss If you know what the hormone leptin is, you should also be aware that it plays a large role in the appetite. Research reveals that having an elevated leptin concentration is associated with lowered levels of ghrelin, the hunger hormone, and this association is the reason why weight loss is easier when a person is on a diet who has higher levels of leptin. What is leptin? Leptin is a polypeptide cytokine, it’s also known as the hormone of satiety, and it is produced by the brain; it indicates the feeling of satiety.  When our body has enough fat stored in it, leptin is secreted. Leptin regulates hunger, insulin secretion, growth, stress, and energy metabolism. It helps us maintain our body weight.  Leptin acts via leptin receptors, and it has a STAT3 signaling mechanism.  Leptin has a major role in controlling obesity. It does so by decreasing appetite, increasing carbohydrate metabolism, decreasing fat synthesis, a

Low Carb Diet Plan - When More Is Better

 When most people want to lose weight the first thing they usually do is start a diet. And a diet to most people means "stop eating". Wrong! A healthy diet should consist of eating less of the foods that contain calories from simple carbohydrates (sugar and processed flour) and more whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables and good sources of protein. This is the basis of a good low carb diet plan. As a matter of fact, a good diet should have you eating more instead of less! Not more food, but more often. The body's a wonderful mechanism. It's geared towards one important goal. Survival. When your body feels threatened by the lack of food it automatically assumes that you're starving. To combat this condition the body will start breaking down muscle to use as energy and saves its fat stores for the last ditch effort to save itself from what it thinks is imminent death. This is bad on two fronts. First, by using muscle tissue for energy you're lo

Weight Loss Or Fat Loss?

 Some people used the term “weight loss” while others call it “fat loss” whilst many use the terms weight loss and fat loss interchangeably. Do they mean the same thing? To many people, they do mean the same thing. But the terms may be entirely different in meaning. You must know the difference if you want to lose weight or lose fat effectively and healthily.  When you step onto your bathroom scale every morning, what you will be reading from the scale is weight loss and not fat loss. Bathroom scales are never accurate in determining fat loss.    Why? Because it measures your overall weight and not your body fat per se. If you weigh yourself in the morning before breakfast after your bowel movement, you will probably get your lowest reading of the day because your body is dehydrated through hours of non fluid replenishment when you were sleeping and after emptying your bowels, more water and wastes are flushed away so much so that you are you are lighter. After a night of sleep and

Mind Over Matter: Key Strategies for Weight Loss Success

  Katie, a 33-year-old mother of two, has been on her share of diets over the years.  From Weight Watchers to the Zone to Sugar Busters, she feels as if she has tried them all.  While she has had moderate success in losing weight from time to time, she has never found a long-term weight loss solution.  Her weight is a point of contention in her marriage; her husband—who also happens to be obese—wishes she were thin, but says he loves her anyway.  The two have been separated a number of times, and even filed for divorce once.  The stress has caused Katie to begin binge eating again.         There is hope for Katie and others like her who feel as if they’re trapped on the diet carousel.  The key to long-term weight loss success may not be the body, but the mind.  Research indicates that those who have a positive outlook on life are more likely to lose weight—and stay thin.  But how can you have a positive outlook when you’ve been burned so many times before?  Is it possible to “will yo
