    Improve Fitness and Health with a Nutritious Weight Loss Diet

    January 11, 2010

    You should begin your diet with a Natural Cleanse, this will help reduce toxins and excess food build up in your body. Cleaning out your digestive system and making way for vitamins and nutrients will set you on the right path for healthy effective weight loss.

    If you want to lose weight you will have to eat less foods that are high in saturated fat and sugar. You can choose vegetables or fruits as a healthy alternative to sugar filled snacks. That will make it easier to control your appetite and calorie intake.

    Exchanging old habits for a new eating routine can be difficult while on a Weight loss diet. When cutting out certain fats in your diet, you must be careful not to allow vital nutrients to slip through the cracks. Cutting back doesn’t mean taking out nutritional foods in your diet.

    Avoid saturated fat as often as you can, try to switch to a balance of poly and monounsaturated fats instead. Fat helps with the absorption of fat-soluble vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, and vitamin K. It helps boost energy levels, and the essential fatty acids in fat are vital for many important body functions. Reach for foods rich in proteins and omega-3 essential polyunsaturated fats. Great dietary sources of protein and omega-3 include flaxseed, flaxseed oil, walnuts, fish including salmon, mackerel, and tuna.

    Curb hunger between meals with snacks that are high in fiber. High-fiber foods such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains, satisfy your hunger and help slow digestion between meals. When food moves slowly through the digestive system, blood-sugar levels remain on an even keel and leave you feeling full.

    You may start to experience low energy levels due to your lower calorie intake. Keep your body full of B vitamins, these assist in bodily functions such as energy production and help to regulate or speed up your metabolism. B vitamins also assist in maintaining healthy balanced thyroid and adrenal functions. Below is a list of some foods that are rich in Vitamin B. Adding these to your diet will help you to feel energized and motivated to exercise while you are dieting, which in turn will help you shed pounds faster.

    Whole grains, beans, eggs, yogurt, green leafy vegetables, almonds, avocados, poultry, broccoli, brewer’s yeast, organ meats (such as liver), nuts, and fish.

    Calcium helps to prevent fat storage and increases food metabolism rate. Recent studies have linked calcium intake to weight loss, and a significant rate of pounds shed in people whose diets are calcium deficient. Even if you are not deficient in calcium, it is a critical nutrient, especially for women. Calcium is vital to the formation and growth of the bones and teeth and helps to prevent osteoporosis, among its other roles. Get your calcium from green leafy vegetables, tofu, salmon, and dairy products.

    Other minerals also such as the trace mineral Chromium, assist in stabilizing blood-sugar levels and is found in brewer’s yeast, egg yolks, beef, hard cheeses, liver, and whole-grain breads.

    Zinc supports protein synthesis and is essential to the formation of insulin. Zinc sources include Brazil nuts, shellfish, eggs, and lean meats. Manganese helps regulate cholesterol metabolism and blood glucose and is found in wheat germ, spinach, split peas, nuts, and oatmeal.

    Staying Fit during the Holiday Season

    November 30, 2009

    With the holidays upon us we are exposed to everything from large holiday dinners to sugar crazed office parties. It is almost impossible to stick to a regular fitness routine and healthy eating plan. We would all like to be able to enjoy family feasts and holiday celebrations without worrying about expanding our waistline and jeopardizing our physical fitness.

    One of the biggest problems during the holidays is portion control, we all tend to treat the holidays as a vacation from eating well. Overeating isn’t the only problem during holiday dinners, eating unhealthy foods and baked goods may be just as damaging to your fitness level as eating too much. It is important to make smart choices when it comes to eating this holiday season.

    Tips for Eating Healthy & Staying Fit this Holiday Season:

    • Portion food ahead of time

      Instead of eating 1 HUGE meal, space it out over three or four smaller meals that you can enjoy throughout the day, this is more beneficial for your metabolism.

      Use smaller plates, you can enjoy any food item or dish, but having it in smaller portions will help you to eat less.

    • Eat Slower

      Studies have shown that this alone can help reduce your calorie intake tremendously, as you will get full faster if you give your food time to settle in your stomach. You will also enjoy your food more and be able to digest it better.

    • Drink a lot of water

      This will cause you to eat less and help your body digest the foods you eat better.

    • Substitute fatty foods for not-so fatty foods

      Skip the Gravy and any High-Calorie dressings, go for a light vinaigrette or extra virgin olive oil instead

      Skip the egg nog and have water instead

      Make a lower-fat pumpkin pie, using an egg substitute, light cream or a low-fat evaporated milk in the recipe, for a low-fat pie crust, a homemade recipe without shortening may be the solution.

      Prepare a fruit or vegetable platter as an appetizer before the main course.

      Eating healthy snacks before the big meal will help you eat less during the Holiday Dinner and ensure you are still maintaining a balanced diet.

      Eat fruit or Veggies instead of chips and salsa, broccoli & low-fat ranch, carrots, cranberries, etc.

    • Exercise More:
      It is important to keep your muscles working to burn fat

      Take a walk with the family or walk around the mall

      Ride a bicycle

      Go dancing with friends
