    Walking

    Walking to help with your weight loss can be quite effective. In fact, current research shows that walking can be just as beneficial as working out at a gym regularly. One study at the University of Pennsylvania followed overweight people on a weight loss program. The participants also followed one of three exercise programs. One group exercised 40 to 50 minutes a day for four days a week in a gym. Another group did the same amount of exercise at home. The third group walked with a pedometer, and aimed to increase their walking by 5000 steps a day.

    What researchers found is that all three groups experienced similar weight loss results at 20 weeks, 40 weeks, and even after 6 months. So don’t think you have to join a gym to exercise and shed extra pounds. Just tart walking more, and you can experience better weight loss and better health!

    A study estimated that Americans miss 40 billion meals a year per average! Many people skip regular meals and just graze all day. While consuming smaller, more frequent meals can help boost metabolism, nibbling on high calorie foods with little nutrients all day long can lead to weight gain. It is still important to consume balanced, nutritious meals or snacks throughout the day if you want to rev up your metabolism and lose weight.

    One of the most important meals skipped is breakfast. Research shows how breakfast helps boost metabolism, improve your food selections throughout the day, and improve mental performance. Studies show an association between weight control, slimmer bodies, and breakfast. Research also shows that those who consume breakfast tend to consume less fat, and more vitamins and minerals than those who skip the meal.

    Try to make an effort to stop missing meals. Stock your kitchen with convenient, ready-to-eat foods. For example, you can have fresh fruits, pre-washed salad greens, meal replacement bars, yogurts, milk and cereal around. Try waking up a little earlier if you need to make time for breakfast, and pack your lunch the night before. On days when you’re not busy, you can prepare dinner items, pre-portion them into several meals, and then freeze them.

    Less all-day munching and more regular meals can help you fuel up properly to lose weight.

    1. Eating amnesia. Very often, this condition is TV-induced. Your hand is stuck in the bag and you don’t realize what or how much you’re eating.  That big bag of chips can disappear pretty fast!

    2. Too few zzzz’s. Sleep loss makes you feel hungry even if you are full, because sleep loss affects the secretion of cortisol, a hormone that regulates appetite, studies show. Also, sleep loss increases fat storage in your body.

    3. After-dinner treats. It tends to be mindless eating and usually involves something sweet.  Start a new habit. Have a warm cup of tea, sparkling water, something non-caloric. Quit eating anything after dinner.

    4. Starvation mode shopping.  Grocery stores and extreme hunger just don’t mix. You end up buying the first quick-fix item you see. Slow down. Eat something healthy before grocery shopping. Shop with a grocery list and stick to it.

    5. Getting grabby. You’re at work, in the airport, anywhere, and hunger sets in. The easiest thing is to grab what’s convenient and too often it is junk food. Plan ahead. Have healthy snacks at your fingertips.

    6. Drinking without thinking. Beer, alcohol, wine, and soft drinks all go down easy but the calories can really add up. Limit alcohol and high calorie drinks when dieting.  Remember water has zero calories!

    7. Skipping breakfast. Your body needs fuel, and your metabolism needs to be jump-started with food. Always eat breakfast in the morning for the best weight loss results.

    8. Portion distortion. We tend to eat everything served to us whether at home or on the go. Portions are huge these days. Learn what normal portions are and stick to them.  Always weigh and measure your food to learn correct portion sizes.

    9. Confusing “fat-free” with “calorie-free.” Those “healthy” cookies and other snacks aren’t really pure. Calories are calories.   Read the label. Polishing off 10 fat-free cookies won’t help your waistline.

    10. Slathering sandwiches with mayo. Try using mustard or low-fat or fat-free mayonnaise for easy calorie savings. Also try adding lots of crunchy veggies into the sandwich for added flavor and extra nutrition.
