Lose weight fast by eating foods you already shop for because certain foods, actions, and activities can gently shift your body into fat release mode.
Losing weight is on almost everyone’s agenda but only a handful actually put in the time and effort to achieve their target weight. But, what if you could do that without putting in too much effort. The smart way to lose weight lies in understanding your food and what it contains. The various micro and macro nutrients in different foods can have different effects on the body and the mind. So, read on and find out about all these nutrients and how you should include or restrict them in your life to reach your target weight the smart way.
Proteins are packed with macronutrients that do your skin, hair, nails, bones and muscles only good. A 2005 Arizona State University study also concluded that it is an exceptional aid for people looking to lose weight. When a person eats proteins for a meal, they leave the table feeling full and the calories burnt after the meal is more than if they had a meal with carbohydrates in it. This shows that proteins are ideal for making a person feel satiation from a meal whilst working with the body to promote better fat burning capabilities at the same time. Some research also shows that people who stick to high protein diets need lesser calories and will overtime reduce the amount of food they take in a day by about 200 calories.
Including orange juice as a staple on your breakfast table may be a tradition your mum passed on to you to ensure you get your Vitamin C. But, did you know that is helps you lose weight too? A study conducted in Quebec in 2008 concluded that ignoring some micronutrients in your diet can lead to deficiencies in vitamin C, magnesium and vitamin E which are in turn linked to obesity and belly fat. Some research also shows that not getting your daily dose of vitamin C can make the body more stubborn to using up stored up fats, thus making weight loss more challenging.
