Still workin’ for that bikini body? Here’s how to get killer abs! #5 is simple and works! http://bit.ly/16mrxvF
1. Juice or natural fruit drinks:
For every 8 ounces of can or packet juice drinks, only find 5% natural juice, the rest is a mixture of artificially flavored water, sometimes up to 150 calories and contains a very significant amount of carbohydrates.
Instead of taking this kind of product I would prefer you eat a whole fruit and a glass of plain water.
2. Sugar free cookies or candy diet:
Most of these foods that are marked with word “Sugar-free” and are proven that they are healthy for diabetics, but what we don’t know is that most of them have other sources of carbohydrates that can hamper our weight loss goal.
Some of them contain sucrose, also known as “Table Sugar” that can raise the sugar level in the blood which favors the production of insulin (the hormone that stores excess sugar as fat).
Excess consumption of these sugars can lead to diarrhea; reduce your consumption of the type of foods.
3. Diet cola and black tea:
Caffeine stimulates the production of insulin, a hormone that stores sugars or carbohydrates found in the blood in the form of fat.
When you abuse the consumption of these type of food, it lower our sugar blood level which can result to you eating more foods more than before. Also caffeine consumption encourages us to eat more carbohydrate foods which end up storing fats in our body.
4. Consumption of Vegetables:
Most people believes that they can consume large amount of vegetables without measurements, but what they don’t know is that some of these vegetables have high quantity of carbohydrates and this is why it’s consumption should be reduced.
It’s advisable to take raw carrots since the fiber reduce the rate of absorption of sugar and gives you a sense of fullness.
5. Mixture of cereals, seeds and dried fruits:
Normally this type of food makes us think it’s healthy as we eat them but yet every 3 tablespoon provides 130 calories, so which means if we consume the recommended serving, that will result to about 800 calories.
Some mixtures contain coconut ingredient rich in saturated fats which increase the blood cholesterol levels.
When you want to eat it as a snack stick about 1/4, prefer to take an apple, 1 tablespoon of melon or orange which gives you better sense of satisfaction.
6. Lactose-free milk or skim milk:
Lactose-free milk is good for people that don’t like taking the milk sugar type which contains some sort of carbohydrate sources that can raise the blood sugar level.
When we consume lactose-free milk believing we are saving calories, many of them still contains some calories from other sources of carbohydrates.
To lose weight, it’s a better choice than whole or skim milk which helps prevent you from getting those calories from fat. But you must know that milk contains a type of carbohydrate lactose.
To prevent taking in lots of fats and also lose weight, it’s important that you control your consumption of carbohydrates in your diet, because the more you consume the more fats are be stored.
7. Low-fat Potato:
A low fat food such as potato gives us the impression that it helps us lose weight. But surprise researches have shown that consumption of potato increase obesity rate.
The reason for this is that potato contains a great amount of starch and increases the blood sugar levels. When this occurs it produces a hormone called insulin that ends up storing the excess fats as fat starches.
When you eat boiled potato peel, it stops the absorption rate, however if you take a mashed or baked potatoes it increases the absorption rates and results to insulin production.
No matter the amount of pounds you loss or how healthy you look, if you are taken in less than 1200 calories every day, you are killing your body.
The thing is, when you consume lower calories for a period of time, you lower your metabolism and by the time you increase your calories intake you will consume more than you normally consume and thereby increasing your calories.
Also, if you consume 1200 calories and burn 400 calories every day, it still means you are consuming less than the regular amount your body needs. You are only sending your body to starvation mode, which is worst for your health.
So how much am I to consume per day?
When it comes to weight lose many people are scared when the word “calories” is mentioned. For our body metabolism to function very well it needs calories, but when the calories consumed is more than the basic requirement then you will begin to add unusually weight.
Taking in minimum of 1500 – 2000 calories will keep your body metabolism active and healthy. This way when you burn some calories, you will still have more needed for keeping your body going.
There are lots of ways to get these healthy calories without damaging your body. Some you can get from your daily meals prepared at home and not from those fast foods outlets, fruits and nuts etc. Avoid eating big chunk of foods at once rather break them into small units and take them at interval throughout the day.
