Improve Fitness and Health with a Nutritious Weight Loss Diet

April 8, 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.

These Supplements can also Help you Stay Healthy while Losing Weight:

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.

    Cheers to Red Wine and Resveratrol

    June 25, 2009

    red-wineSmall amounts of this red wine may provide numerous cancer-preventative effects but red wine may also enhance fat metabolism. You can get also get some resveratrol from pomegranates, blueberries, grapes and supplements.

    One of the biggest discoveries in nutritional science is the identification of resveratrol, the active ingredient in red wine. This compound has been shown to dramatically increase the rate at which cells metabolize fat. Resveratrol stimulates the SIRT1 gene to produce a protein called sirtuin-1 which blocks a receptor on fat cells. When this receptor is blocked, the breakdown of fat is increased and the formation of new fat is decreased.

    Other studies have shown that the stimulation of this protein by resveratrol also activates the genes that promote a longer, healthier lifespan. Resveratrol comes from the skin of grapes but since it oxidizes quickly (losing its metabolic effect in the process) fresh grapes and white wine are less effective sources. Red wine is a unique source of resveratrol as it retains the same amount as was in the grape at the time of fermentation.

    Doctors are excited about resveratrol as a substance that seems to mimic the life-lengthening effects of calorie restriction without dieting. So there will definitely be more research and news about the effects of resveratrol in the near future.
