No dieting has ever been proven to deliver evidence-lasting results, and many are even decidedly unhealthy. So listen instead to the science and take advantage of these 7 ways of a healthy and slim life.
The fact is however, that after a few weeks they are failing to keep any cure, and few people are experiencing lasting weight loss.
You are far better off dropping your next diet and instead take science by the hand – through these seven ways that will fine tune your health instead of slimming companies’ bottom lines.
It may sound like the world turned upside down when you obviously like everyone else, eat a little too much of all the things you like and should not eat but love. But there is a method in the madness.
It is important to eat healthy, but you also could not bear to put food you do not like in to your mouth. Otherwise you quickly will fall back into bad eating habits, the American research at Brown Medical School
– If you choose a diet consisting of foods you do not like, you are sure to fail, explains professor of nutrition at New York University, Lisa Sasson.
2. Watch the portion size
To lose weight and change eating habits are largely psychological, and research also shows that subjects lose themselves in controlled conditions – whether they are on a slimming diet or not.
The first thing that goes wrong when the subjects are no longer monitored, is not that they start changing the diet.
The first thing that goes wrong is that they screw up for the portion size, and even the healthiest diet will lose its effect, if eat twice as much.
3. Go for fibers and proteins
A key to keeping a healthy diet – or for that matter a diet – is the satisfying feeling.
Rich diets in fiber and proteins provide a distinctive sense of satiety, while processed foods poor in fiber such as cakes and chips virtually do not.
Researchers at Sussex University has on an overall study of a series of trials of weight loss found that protein and fiber rich diet significantly reduces the risk of overeating.
This means that you should eat lentils, beans, peas, quinoa, whole grain products and vegetables – especially starchy root crops and winter vegetables – and lots of fish and poultry.
Juice, juice and soft drinks contain large amount of calories that you eat without being satiated, and it increases your total calorie intake dramatically.
A US 2007 study of 173 women showed that just by replacing sugary drinks with tap water, the women lost weight dramatically and permanently – independent of their other diet plan.
At the same time, research shows that by consuming up to half a liter of water, half an hour before each meal can greatly increase his weight loss.
Sleep Researchers at Columbia University in New York did in 2012 a study of a MRI scan of brains of 25 normal-weight men and women while they were shown images of junk food.
The result was unique in that when subjects were rested – after a week of 9 hours of sleep each night – responded to their reward centers of the brain only slightly by think of the fatty food.
But after a week with just four hours of sleep a night, showed the same brain centers significantly increased activity at the sight of exactly the same images of junk food.
The brain responds simply more favorably on fatty and unhealthy food when you are sleep deprived, as an essential part of a healthy and slimming lifestyle is a good night’s sleep.
6. Eat breakfast
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated that there is a direct relationship between the intake of breakfast and an increased metabolism – and thus an increased ability to convert food into energy.
Results of the study revealed that even with a high metabolism, a diet full of saturated fats cause your muscle cells lose some of the ability to burn sugar instead stored in your body.
If you starve yourself for the purpose of losing weight, you will in the long run achieve exactly the opposite effect.
At the end of WW2, researchers at the University of Minnesota a now legendary starve experiment.
The researchers starved for 24 weeks 36 volunteers young men, each just got 1,600 calories a day – between 500 and 1,500 calories less than your body needs, depending on physical activity, to maintain normal weight.
Through the first 12 weeks lost men on average 450 grams per week, while in the last 12 weeks on average lost 110 grams per week.
At the same time saw a large part of the 36 test subjects, they were obsessed with food, many suffering from hair loss, and some even experienced that the body’s ability to heal even minor wounds decreased.
As the 36 young men finally were allowed to eat freely again, they went absolutely berserk, and when the researchers after 20 weeks of study again examined the 36 subjects, the result was shocking.
On average, the men – less than five months after the end of the study – 50% MORE body fat than they had been at the trial original start.
- Good LUCK
