10 Most Important Health And Weight Loss Tips Of The Year
Health & Fitness
Tip #1: Choose heavier free weights. Bypass the weight machines and pick up heavier hand weights. Lifting heavier loads for fewer reps helps burn fat and create definition.
Tip #2: Eat carbs as leftovers.
If you’re going to eat carbs, eat them as leftovers. Cold and reheated pastas and potatoes have more resistant starch than when they’re first prepared
Eat Them as Leftovers
When a carb craving hits, consider this: Cold and reheated pastas and potatoes have more resistant starch than freshly cooked pasta or potatoes (Note: This does not apply to fried potatoes, unfortunately). The cooking and cooling process changes the makeup of the food and converts starches into resistant starches, making it even healthier for you than when you first prepared it. Bring on the leftovers!
Tip #3: Don’t mistake “healthy” for “low-calorie.” The health food blind spot exists. Knowing the facts on “healthy swaps” like agave instead of sugar and olive oil instead of butter can help you avoid unnecessary calories.
Tip #4: Write down everything. You already know that writing down your goals makes you more likely to achieve them, but don’t stop there. Write down everything from meals to workouts to help stick to your fitness goals.
Tip #5: Eat protein every three hours. Eat protein (aim for 20-35 grams) at every meal to give your muscles the fuel they need. Snack on it too. Eating protein every three hours keeps your metabolism up and running.
Tip #6: Ditch your hour-long cardio sessions. Yes, long cardio sessions burn calories, but they’re not your most effective option for fat loss.
Tip #7: Go low-carb (or no-carb) for dinner. Carbs are burned more efficiently earlier in the day. Go high-protein, low-carb at dinner for optimum weight loss.
Tip #8: Know how to find hidden sugar. Hidden sugars are lurking in all sorts of different foods, and consuming them is throwing your blood sugar out of whack.
Tip #9: Wear a pedometer, be more active. Studies confirm that wearing a pedometer does help to increase activity levels.
Tip #10: Meditate on your meals. Want to stop overeating and feel more satisfied after meals? Focus on each bite, and more specifically,practice mindful eating.
