Why Eating Breakfast May Help You Lose Weight

Most people in search of weight loss end up skipping breakfast. However this practice is more likely to cause weight gain than weight loss. Skipping breakfast has been clearly connected to the development of obesity.
Studies show that overweight and obese children, adolescents, and adults are less likely to break the fast each morning than their thinner counterparts.

According to research, skipping meals, specifically breakfast, could in fact make fat loss more difficult. Breakfast skippers are more likely to eat more food than usual at the next meal or snack on high-calorie food items to stave off hunger.
A number of research studies suggest that people tend to accumulate far more body fat when they eat fewer larger meals than when they eat the same number of calories in smaller sized more frequent meals.

So, make sure to eat a health breakfast every morning.

Here are some sites you can check out for awesome healthy breakfast ideas:

We’ve all seen those adverts claiming to burn fat fast by following a special training program and purchasing their so called “magical” products.

Well an American blogger who calls himself Furious Pete has produced a video in which he shows you exactly how it’s done.

Does The High Fat Low Carb Diet Really Work?

Do high fat low carb diets work

Here is a brilliant article about the high fat low carb diet. Michael Cala interviewed nutrition expert and cancer-prevention specialist Moshe Shike, M.D. about whether low carb diets really work.

Michael Carla: People trying to lose weight often say they’ve had limited or no success following the 20-20-60 diet. Consumer magazines praise the “high-protein low-carbohydrate” diet as a panacea for the American weight problem. Your views?

Dr. Shike: These “high-protein, low-carbohydrate” diets have not been proven to be safe or effective in the long run. We know, for example, that high-protein diets may be harmful to the kidneys, and are associated with calcium loss, which can result in bone problems. Read more…

 

Fitness Motivation – Change Your Mindset

The problem with being fixed in your mindset is that you remain content with everything including your failures because you are too afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Your mindset is so powerful that it can hold you back from achieving things in your life.

We all want change. Right?

Well, wanting and thinking about change is not enough. You have to commit, and commitment can’t be only in your mind, you have to commit with an action. Once you take action, the magic starts and so does a shift in your mindset.

Here is a true story for you from a woman who was 40 pounds overweight:

For years I was 40 pounds overweight, but I didn’t want to really see it. If I did try a diet it was just to support a friend or spouse who was trying to lose. Finally, I realized I needed to lose weight for me, but just thinking that didn’t work.

After various “tries” with different weight loss methods, I finally “got it.” I realized that I not only needed to want to lose weight for me, but I had to work for it. I found a weight loss program and followed it! I also started off slowly, but began working exercise into my routine. It wasn’t easy, but once I made one small change and took action – starting taking short walks at lunch instead of taking a nap in my car – I knew I was headed in the right direction.

Once I took action, it took me less than a year to lose 40 pounds. By that time, I already had the actions (eating right and exercising regularly) as part of my life and my mindset had changed. I wasn’t just dieting, I was living a healthy lifestyle. I was able to keep those 40 pounds off (give or take 5 pounds) for three years. I recently slipped up and gained back ten of those pounds, but instead of just letting things go, I faced the issue and have started to refocus my efforts. In four weeks, I have lost five of those added ten pounds. Thanks to my previous change in mindset, getting back on track wasn’t as difficult.

Fitness Motivation Tip – Nothing Is Impossible

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live the world they’ve been given, than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.” – Muhammad Ali

I am sure you hear the word “impossible” at least a few time a day, right?  Some people say that word because  they are scared to take on new challenges or responsibilities. Maybe they are scared they will fail or maybe they think people will laugh at them. A person who wants to lose weight will often use that word as their confidence and self esteem are very low.

I am by no means saying that “EVERYTHING” is possible. I mean, i want a Ferrari with a huge house on Hollywood boulevard and 1 million dollar payslip every month. Is that possible NO!, not in my life time, unless i rob a bank…But what i am saying is that you need to try first. You need to believe in yourself , set realistic goals and never ever give up trying. Never let any doubts bring you down, it just sucks up all your energy.

I was once told that thinking negative thoughts is like hording. It takes up space.

Today is a “possible” day. Go out and make it happen, at least make a start. Baby steps:)
