Rules You Can Break & Still Lose Weight
Rules you can break & still lose weight!

Your love for food is the biggest road blocker in your desire to lose weight as you are most likely to grab the first decadent food you can find after a short span of controlled eating. though there are some well defined guidelines that are stated for the people who want to lose weight, yet it is obvious that no one-size-fits-all. here are some common rules for weight loss you can bend and still drop pounds from the scale. #rule 1: no indulgence just because you want to lose weight, doesn’t mean that you have to live without the foods you adore like dessert, alcohol, fried foods, etc. when you deny yourself the bites you crave it can backfire, causing you to feel deprived and ultimately resulting in binge eating. you can’t eat these foods all the time if you want to lose weight, but it’s perfectly healthy to enjoy a few spoonfuls of ice cream or a small glass of champagne every once in a while. just tone down your portion sizes and indulge about once a week. #rule 2: eat salad everyday yes, it’s true that salads help in weight loss, but it is also important to consider that they aren’t for everyone. the dissatisfied feeling that you get after eating the salad could cause you to head to the nearest fast food joint. also, salad toppings can really add up. when a bowl of greens is covered in creamy dressing, candied walnuts, cheese, cranberries, and avocado, a seemingly healthy salad can run higher in calories in comparison to a burger. you have to enjoy the foods you’re eating in order to stick with a healthy meal plan and if you don’t like the bowl of raw veggies, choose other low-calorie meals that incorporate veggies such as sandwiches, broth-based soups, grilled veggies, and whole-grain salads, etc. #rule 3: say no to carbs it is indeed true that carbs are high in calories but not all of them. refined carbs like white flour, rice, and sugar are the ones to limit while complex carbs like quinoa, oats, whole-wheat pasta, whole-grain bread, and brown rice should be consumed for sure in order to lose weight faster. these food items are full of protein that’ll give you energy and fiber that will keep you full. you need to watch portions of the complex carbs since they aren’t calorie-free, but you definitely shouldn’t ditch all carbs in the name of weight loss. #rule 4: exercise is most important you can burn around 250 calories in a 30-minute jog which is surely going to help you in losing weight faster…. but is the only way to burn calories?? no! if you can’t exercise because of any reason, you can still lose weight. it just means you have to be willing to eat less and cut calories in your diet instead. if you do skip out on workouts, keep active in other ways — it’s important for so many other reasons like heart health, stress relief, and better sleep. #rule 5: measure everything while portion control does play an important role in weight loss, you don’t have to be rigid about measuring everything. there are tons of foods you can eat as much as you want of and not measure a single bite like salad greens, peppers, celery, and cucumbers. if your daily diet seems too strict, try to include foods like these that you can munch on without worrying about how much you’re eating.

Understanding Food Nutrition Labels
Understanding food nutrition labels

Are you fascinated with fancy words like “low fat”, “extra protein”, “rich in fiber”, “low sugar content” while you go shopping for your daily grocery items? food labels are constantly shouting about how healthy they are for our health, but are they actually that good? most of the people have low or no knowledge about nutrition labels, which results in picking up the product with most catchy tagline or special content. but in today’s health-conscious world, you’re probably more than curious about what you’re eating. this guide will help you easily navigate the nutrition facts and ingredient lists on foods, allowing you to make a well directed decision about the food items you pick and eat – 1. serving size though serving size are universal in nature, but if you don’t have pre-portioned food, there are high chances that you’re eating more than the serving size. to figure out how much you’re eating, use either a measuring cup or a food scale to measure the portion you normally eat and then compare it to the nutrition label. there is high probability of you seeing that your cereal portion is accounting for a few more calories than you planned. for accurate calories and nutrition, measure your food according to the serving size. 2. fats the next on the label comes fats. though they have gained some bad reputation amongst the weight watchers, but it is important to consider that they are highly essential for brain, organ, and heart to function. since you are really conscious about your weight beware of saturated and trans fats. you should always try to avoid trans fats; saturated fats aren’t healthy, but you can have some in your diet in low quantities. while fat isn’t bad for you, you shouldn’t be getting more than 20-30 grams of it per meal, so watch for labels that are super high in fat! 3. cholesterol & sodium before deciding amount the maximum limit intake of both sodium and cholesterol be extra careful as they are not good for heart health. it is advised to talk to your doctor to discuss specific numbers for each! 4. fiber fiber amounts are always located beneath carbohydrates on nutrition labels. an average man should have 30-40gms/day and women in should have 20-30gms/day. fiber helps regulate bowel movements, as well as cholesterol and blood sugar levels. 5. vitamins iron, calcium, and vitamins play an essential role in maintaining general health and prevent against issues like anemia or osteoporosis. while some processed foods contain these vitamins, you should try to get most of these nutrients from fruits and vegetables. 6. sugar sugar gets its own section on the nutrition label owning to the high level of negative impact it has on our health. keep in mind that naturally-occurring sugar, like you find in fruit is the only kind of sugar that is good for health. you should never eat a product with too much added sugar. a general rule is that if sugar is listed as one of the first three ingredients, try to avoid that food. 7. ingredient list the ingredients are listed in the descending order of weight. this means that the ingredient that weighs the most will be listed first. this can be helpful when trying to discern what exactly you’re eating. keep in mind, the less ingredients, the better. 8. zero calories food items there is no such thing as zero calorie food. any food, no matter how healthy the ingredients are, will contain at least some calories. so are such food items a lie? actually no! foods get labelled as “zero calorie” because the serving size listed on the nutrition label does offers zero calories, but if you consume more than the serving size, chances are you’re now absorbing some calories. not only this, these zero-calorie foods confuse your body and can lead you to eat more, because your body is trying to process calories that aren’t there. it is advised to stick to simple, whole foods, and ignore the fake products with such flashy labels.

Dont Drink Your Calories
Don’t drink your calories!

Liquid calories slide so easily in your daily routine, that it is almost impossible to avoid them. if you are one of those people who wonder why they are not losing weight even though they have been exercising and eating properly, the answer might be in your beverages. to justify this further, researchers evaluated the data from the national health and nutrition examination survey in 2004, to see how many calories americans drink. they specifically looked at “sugar-sweetened beverages” which includes, 1. “low-calorie” drinks 2. sweetened teas 3. fruit drinks and juices 4. sweet coffee-bar drinks (such as cappuccinos and hot chocolate) 5. rice and soy milks 6. sports drinks the results of their studies highlighted that 63% of americans had one or more of these beverages on any given day, and total calories per day from sweetened drinks has gone up in the last 20 years by 29% to over 200 calories per day. this does not include alcohol which in the survey accounted for another 99 calories per day. most of these drinks have become a part of our daily routines and we don’t even realize how many empty calories we intake which are not actually good for health. it’s time to make a move and decide to eat rather than drinking up the calories. here are some tips which will prove helpful for you to make smarter moves:- a) log your drinks don’t forget to log your morning juice and office time coffees in your digital trackers to keep a check on the calories intake. keep a check on the total empty calories you had throughout the week along with the extra sugar intake to see why your weight loss efforts are not showing any results. b) drink water another reason, you might be consuming empty calories in drinks is because you are thirsty. it is adviced to have a minimum of 3 liters of water everyday. also, you must make sure that you start and end up your day with a glass of water. also be smart and always keep a water bottle on your office desk which will help in replacing mindlessly drinking calories with mindlessly drinking water. c) have water after wine if you are going out for drinks with friends, try drinking a glass of water for every cocktail or glass of wine. you’ll surely end up drinking half the calories you normally would and you’ll wake up feeling a lot better the next morning, too! d) brew some tea be it green, black, white or red just brew it and have it. not only is it flavorful but it is healthy as well as easy to make. you can drink it cold, hot, or anything in-between and it’s tasty morning, noon, and night. smart swaps to keep empty calories at bay don’t ruin your diet with empty calories from sugary drinks. here are some ideas for drinks that are diet and health friendly: 1. drink a 12 oz diet soda instead of regular soda and save more than 100 calories. 2. have a cup of skim milk instead of a cup of whole milk to save around 65 calories. 3. want to have a hot chocolate? add a sugar-free packet to your 2% milk, rather than sugar to save 60 calories. 4. say no to the whipped cream on any coffee or beverage to save your 50 calories. 5. swap a small chocolate milkshake for an 8 oz carton of chocolate milk to save 75 calories. 6. to avoid the intake sugar and save 15 calories per tsp go for black or green tea. 7. love alcohol? choose light beer over dark beer to have 50 calories lesser. 8. tried soymilk? replace 1 cup of whole milk with a 1 cup of vanilla soy milk to save 50 calories. 9. rather than going for packed/commercial smoothies make yourself one to save about 100 calories. 10. in the mood for some fruit juice? rather than having it pure dilute it 50% with water to save yourself around 50 calories. you can also opt for v-8 juices, which is even better as you can save more than 60 calories/drink. so next time when you are in the mood to grab your favorite drink don’t forget to evaluate the harm it can make to your body and also look for a healthier version to curb the cravings!
