With over two-thirds of the U.S. population being overweight and 20% of them obese.  We can see that for various reasons, there are increasingly people that want to lose weight.

Recently, both men and women have become very concerned about Achieving weight-loss goals of healthy techniques.

However, weight loss is not easy and not often successful. Often, people suffer the setbacks caused by the ways they adapt to shed pounds.

In fact, any health professional will tell you that to maintain a healthy Body Mass Index (BMI), you should follow a healthy lifestyle.

This means, to lose weight healthily, we should know what and when to eat and not eat. As well as exercise, which might be any kind.

Here are five ways that you can use to help you Achieving Weight-loss Goals Healthy Techniques.

 

 

Have Breakfast Every Day.

 

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It is a consensus among nutritionists that the quickest and healthiest way to lose weight is to have breakfast every day.

In fact, scientific research has proven that eating the correct and balanced nutrients at breakfast creates a fat-burning effect.

A healthy breakfast is one of the natural and effective ways to help to kick-start the metabolism in the morning.

Says Elisabetta Politi, RD, MPH, nutrition manager for the Duke Diet & Fitness Center at Duke University Medical School.

Research has also established. The fact that just having a healthy breakfast alone can help people to shed about 4 pounds in just one month, without the need to exercise or dieting.

Used Cereal Weight-Loss Diet.

 

Do you know that cereal is a fantastic weight-loss food? The cereal diet works on a simple concept that is one of the foundations of weight loss – cutting calorie intake.

According to an article published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association.

Women who included high-fiber cereal in their calorie-restricted diet plans lost weight without losing crucial nutrients.

Besides working well, it’s also convenient, affordable, and filling.

Studies show that people who eat cereal for breakfast. Feel full for longer and tend to eat less during the next meal. This is because the fiber content in the cereals expands in the stomach and it takes a longer time to be digested.

Since most brands are fortified with vitamins. Cereal is also well suited as a meal alternative and you can still take in adequate nutrition while cutting calories.

You can choose to replace either your breakfast or lunch with a bowl of cereal.

Replacing both the breakfast and lunch meals with a bowl of cereal; can dramatically reduce your calorie intake when compared to the regular meals.

For example, if you have been eating bacon or bagel with cream cheese or pancakes and eggs for breakfast.

You are ingesting way above 500 calories each meal. Half a chicken, sandwich, or burger with fries contains more than 700 calories. These add up to at least 1200 calories.

Replacing these two meals with cereal (150 – 200 calories in total) enables you to easily cut over 1000 calories (about 3-4 hours walking) per day.

 

 

Execute Moderate Exercise.

 

Well, the whole world knows, and nobody can deny the fact that when performed carefully; exercise is the best and the healthiest way to lose weight.

Exercise increases the body’s natural production of Norepinephrine. (a fat-burning enzyme) which triggers the release of glucose from Glycogen, thus causing weight loss in a natural way.

Exercises performed moderately can help you lose weight, according to sciencedaily.com

For weight loss, you can perform any form of exercise as you wish.

From the more intense anaerobic exercises such as weight training. Or functional training to the less intensive ones like stretching.

However, you must bear in mind that too much intense exercise can be harmful; and it has been associated with scarring of the heart and heart rhythm abnormalities.

Inappropriate exercise can do more harm than good as significant injuries can occur with poorly regimented exercises.

Therefore, easy, and comfortable exercises that can be included in your daily routines. Like walking, gardening, cleaning the house, swimming, cycling, jogging, and aerobics are the most healthy for weight loss.

This is because these kinds of bodily movements would not stretch or stress your body system.

Depending on your weight, a mere 30-minute walking session can burn 120 to 200 calories. Therefore, regardless of the type of workout routines, you undertake.

It is important to keep your body moving, to stimulate metabolism for your body system to burn off the fat.

 

 

Increase Your Metabolism.

 

To burn fat, you must increase your metabolism so that your body converts such fats into energy.

Besides exercising which speeds up your metabolic rate automatically. It will be good if you can also adopt other different healthy ways. Of improving your metabolism for natural weight loss.

One of the best ways is to eat often. A study conducted by Georgia State University.

Confirmed the fact that people who eat every 2 to 3 hours. Have a faster metabolic rate and less body fat compared with those individuals who eat only 2 or 3 meals per day.

The reasoning behind is whenever you eat, your metabolism will be stimulated.

This means the more often you eat, the more you will boost your metabolic rate.

Also, your body is automatically reassured that there is no need to store up fat for future use. Because food is always available.

However, eating more frequently doesn’t mean snacking. It’s ok to snack occasionally.

But for other times, you should take in more of healthy proteins like nuts or eggs, and vegetables.

 

 

Facts check Achieving weight-loss goals.

 

According to Kristine Clark, Ph.D., RD, FACSM; assistant professor and director of sports nutrition at Pennsylvania State University.

Increasing the intake of high-fiber foods like vegetables is one of the healthiest ways to increase your metabolism.

This is since fiber is a non-digestible carbohydrate in which the body uses lots of energy to try to break it down – which boosts metabolism in the process.

In addition, vegetables are low in calories but high in nutrients – a bonus for your weight loss efforts.

Green tea or oolong tea contains caffeine and catechin, substances that boost up the metabolism for a couple of hours.

Research suggests that drinking two to four cups these weight-loss teas; may push the body to burn up to 17% more calories than normal during moderate exercise for a short period of time.

 

 

Add Yoga.

 

Yes, you read it right. It’s yoga. Practicing yoga can help with weight loss. Dr. Alan Kristal has confirmed this fact.

Associate Head of Cancer Prevention Program (a professor of epidemiology) and his colleagues at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.

They conducted a study to find out yoga’s effect on people’s eating habits and hence the weight.

Their findings showed that regular yoga practice helped to prevent middle-age spread in people of a healthy weight and promote weight loss in those overweight people.

These scientists found out that regular yoga practice is associated with mindful eating, and people who eat mindfully are less likely to become obese.

This is because they tend to eat in response to hunger but not anxiety or depression.

And they also tend to stop eating when they are full instead of continuing to eat. For e.g. because their plates still full or the food taste good.

When you are eating mindfully. You tend to eat more slowly, and your brain promptly gets the signal. When you are full and you stop eating and you won’t ingest extra calories.

This explains why people who practiced yoga tend to gain less weight. This may very well be the reason all the great Yoga gurus have slim figures.

Women demonstrate the different sleep positions.

 

 

 

Sleep Better Tonight.

 

Think the solution to your fatigue is an earlier bedtime? Getting enough sleep is important, but it’s also the quality that counts and there’s more to it than just a comfortable bed.

Also complicating things: As you get older, your sleep patterns change, making it harder to fall (and stay) asleep.

But that doesn’t mean you’re destined to be sleep-deprived. You can improve your slumber without tacking on hours in bed and it’s not hard to do. Just turn the page to get started.

Every little habit-from what you eat and drink to when you exercise and watch TV-can impact your sleep.
Here’s a sample day that shows you what you can do to get the best AZ’s possible. (Adjust it for your wake and sleep times.)

 

 

Skip the snooze button.

 

It’s tempting to turn over and squeeze in an extra 10 to 15 minutes of shut-eye when your
the alarm goes off but doing that can make you more tired.

“You spend so much energy going back to sleep and waking up again that you. don’t get any additional deep sleep,” says Kathryn Lee, RN, Ph.D. professor and associate dean for research at the University of California San Francisco School of Nursing.

And you’re more likely to wake up groggy. “So, you’re using more energy but not sleeping more to make up for it.”

 

 

Exercise.

 

Not only does it give you a shot of energy that’ll help you power through the day but be exercising in the morning may also decrease levels of stress hormones, making it easier for your body to wind down and fall asleep faster, says Scott Collier, Ph.D. director of the Vascular Biology and Autonomic Studies Laboratory at Appalachian State-University.

In a recent study led by Dr. Collier, people who got 30 minutes of moderate exercise at 7 A.M. (compared with 1 P.M. and 7 P.M.) significantly improved the quality of their sleep that night, spending 75% more time in a deep sleep.

 

 

 

 

Take a breathing break.

“If you don’t take time to stop during the day, falling asleep is harder. Why?

When you finally try, you lie awake thinking about all the things you haven’t had a moment to ponder,” says Diane Renz, LPC, a psychotherapist in Boulder, Colorado.

It’s kind of like slamming on the brakes of a fast-moving car and all the junk in the back flying forward. So once or twice a day, close your eyes and take three slow, deep breaths.

 

 

Cut out caffeine.

 

“Caffeine is a stimulant that lasts in your system for 4 to 7 hours,” says Lawrence Epstein, MD, a chief medical officer of the Sleep Health Centers, an instructor at Harvard Medical School and past president of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.

Make sure that by the time you’re going to bed, the stimulating effects have worn off.

Coffee isn’t the only culprit: Tea, chocolate, and soft drinks also contain levels that can affect your sleep. (Check out exactly how much in “Caffeine Count,” below.)

 

 

Go outside.

 

Getting out in natural-afternoon light (30 P.M. minutes is ideal-even if it’s cloudy) helps reset your circadian rhythm so that you’ll wind down easier when bedtime rolls around, says Donna Arand, Ph.D. clinical director of the Kettering Sleep Disorders Center in Dayton, Ohio. (It’s also energizing.)

If you can’t exercise in the A.M., use this time to squeeze in a brisk walk.

 

 

Caffeine count.

You know that coffees got a lot
(95 mg in 1 cup), but the amount
in other items may surprise you.

  • Coffee ice cream  >>>>  1 cup   48mg
  • Diet Coke    >>>>  1 can    47mg
  • Tea         >>>>  1 cup    40mg
  • Dark chocolate bar  >>>>  450z   25mg

 

 

Eat Dinner.

 

Your body needs at least 2 hours (3 for a heavy meal) to fully digest food.

Eat too close to bedtime, and it’ll be hard for your body to wind down since you’ll still be working on digesting.

Try to eat dinner on the earlier side, and the same goes for drinking alcohol. “Alcohol makes you sleepy at first but causes you to wake up as it wears off,” says Nancy Collop, MD, director of the Emory Sleep Center and President of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.

 

 

An hour before bedtime, have a protein-carb combo snack.

 

Your brain needs the protein to produce melatonin and serotonin, chemicals important for sleep; and the carbs help your body absorb the protein, says Dr. Lee.

A few good healthy snack options. Peanut butter and whole-wheat bread or peanut butter and crackers, or 1 Tbsp hummus in a mini whole-wheat pita.

 

 

Thirty minutes before bedtime, start your wind-down routine.

 

“A lot of sleep disturbance happens because we don’t give our bodies a chance to transition from a fast-paced day,” says Dr. Renz.

This can be as simple as taking off your makeup and washing your face under dim lights or doing something relaxing like reading or meditating.

“This signals to your brain that the day’s over and it’s time for sleep,” says Dr. Epstein. Shut down, your computer, too, since surfing the Internet and sending emails stimulates your nervous system, making it harder to unwind.

 

 

Get into bed, breathe, and stretch.

 

Taking a few deep breaths and doing a light 30-second stretch (try sitting up and reaching toward your toes) will help you relax once you’re under the sheets, says Dr. Collop.

It’s OK if it takes a little while to fall asleep (up to 20 minutes is normal). “If you’re out like a light the second you hit the pillow, it means that you’re sleep-deprived,” says Dr. Renz.

 

 

It’s all in your sleep position.

 

Trying to change your sleep position is not a lost cause.

“You can train yourself to switch positions with two weeks of practice,” says Dr. Arand.

And since your form could be interfering with your sleep and your health, experts say it’s worth a try. Here, the pros and cons of each and how to change.

SIDE.

Sleeping on your left side is good for increasing blood and oxygen flow, says  Dr. Arand.
Being on your side (with a pillow between your legs) can also help with muscle and joint discomfort.
Mid- to lower-back pain is often associated with this position since you’re

sleeping with a curved spine, says Alberto Ramos, MD, assistant professor of clinical neurology in the sleep medicine division at the University of Miami. SWITCH IT Put a pillow between your knees to help align your spine. To change positions, put on a belt and insert rolled towels on each side, which will help block side stance.

 

BACK

Sleeping on your back can help ease heartburn or acid reflux, especially if you prop up your head slightly, says Dr. Ramos. Back sleeping can exacerbate asthma or be snoring because your,

  • airways are more closed off. It can also increase the severity of sleep apnea (a disorder in which you have shallow or abnormal breathing at night).

SWITCH IT: Fill a small backpack with towels and strap it on at night. “This helps prevent you from rolling onto your back,” says Dr. Epstein. Special triangle-shaped or wedge pillows can also help.

 

STOMACH

It can ease snoring and other respiratory conditions.

  • Stomach sleeping is often the reason for neck or upper back pain because your neck stays in a slight arch all night, says Dr. Ramos.

SWITCH IT: Dig out your old fanny pack from the closet and fill it up with socks or small towels, suggests Dr. Arand. Put it around your waist with the pack in front before you crawl into bed. This creates an obstacle that will make it uncomfortable to lie on your stomach. Or try hugging a pillow to start your slumber.
