Making Fish Oil Twice as Effective for Weight Loss

Oh No! Summer is coming and bating suit season is just about here.  What do we do with those extra stubborn pounds that we cannot seem to lose?  Taking fish oil as well as making minor adjustments…yes I said MINOR, to your menu can help you shed those pounds before D-DAY.  Many people tell you that taking fish oil capsules everyday can help improve a variety of health issues and prevent certain diseases from occurring.  However, is your fish oil enough to accomplish all of that?  After doing a bunch of research from a variety of resources I came upon something that can actually help enhance the effects of fish oil making it more effective.  By combining high dose fish oil supplements with the Zone Diet can help you see results twice as fast, both in improving overall health as well as losing weight.  Keep in mind that fish oil does have a blood thinning effect, so check with your doctor before taking high doses.

1.  Replace Omega-6 Fats with Monosaturated Fats.  Instead of eating corn, soybean, sunflower and safflower oils, have extra virgin olive and sesame oils, nuts, seeds, nut butters and avocados.  The switch of simply changing your fats greatly reduces the bodys ability to create fat by depriving the toxic fat of its basic building blocks – omega-6 fats. Weight loss could be kick started in as little as three days!

2.  Reach for low-glycemic foods.  High glycemic foods increase insulin by the body which causes weight gain.  Reducing your high glycemic food carbs and starchy veggies such as corn, potatoes and peas, can cut insulin by up to 22%.  Thats been proven to help women in particular lose 10 pounds in 14 days!

3.  Include protein in every meal.  By doing so will increase the release of pancreatic polypepide, a hormone that promotes a feeling of fullness.  Protein rich foods stimulate the pancreas to release a hormone that encourages the burning of stored fat for energy.  A great way t burn calories without being on a restricted diet.

Some people feel overwhelmed when they think of “dieting” or having to change the way they eat in order to lose the weight.  Well below is a sample menu of what you may want to incorporate into your menu to help kick start the process.

Sample Day to Slimdown

Breakfast – Try scrambled eggs made with 2 eggs and 4 egg whites or 1/2 Cup egg substitute, 3/4 tsp. olive oil and 1 tsp. milk (can use non-fat).  3 strips of turkey bacon, 1/2 slice of rye toast with 1 tsp. natural peanut butter, 1 Cup of grapes.

Lunch – 1 halved whole wheat mini pita topped with tomato sauce, 3 oz. lean ground beef sauteed with bell peppers and onions, and 1 oz. low fat cheese (broil until melted), side of lettuce and fresh veggies with olive oil and vinegar.

Snack – 1oz. part skim mozzarella string cheese, 1/2 apple with 1/2 tsp natural peanut butter.

Dinner – 3oz. chicken cutlet with 1/2 Cup of salsa, 3 Tbs. guacamole and sprinkle low fat cheese, 1 1/2 Cups green beans and 1 Cup of berries.

Snack – 4oz. wine, 1oz. cheese

Closer Look At The Buffet Table

buffetWeight loss is something almost every one of my friends talks about.  People are always trying to diet, or trying to lose weight.  Whether its 40 pounds or 4 pounds, people are always “watching” what they eat.

According to a study, 213 people were observed at an all you can eat Chinese buffet by trained researchers.  The research showed some fairly interesting results.  Diners who were visibly overweight ot obese were more likely than normal-weight diners to:

  • Serve themselves immediately, rather then browse the buffet first
  • Choose a large plate over a smaller one
  • Sit facing the buffet
  • Use a fork rather then chopsticks
  • Sit without a napkin on their laps

What to do if you are at a buffet such as this and trying to watch your weight? Use a small plate, so you take smaller portions.  Use chopsticks so you slow down while you are eating.  You also pay more attention to the amount of food you are consuming.  Don’t sit facing the buffet, so the food isn’t always “in your face” having you thinking about what to eat next.  Take your time and look around the buffet and go for the food that most appeals to you, not just what’s at hand.  Use your napkin, this way its one more thing you have to do before getting back up to grab another serving, which may in fact act as a deterrent. 🙂

Fruits Flush Fat

Did you know that by eating fruit you can actually flush away the fat?  Well you can.  Eating certain foods help to turbo charge the weight loss.  Certain fruits are Low Energy Density which means that they contain more water, fiber and enzymes then others.  These fruits help aid in weight loss.  Fruits density rating should be between 0 and .6.  Some fruits with their energy density rating are listed below.  By eating these fruits you can help your body eliminate fat.

Strawberries       .2
Raspberries       .3
Watermelon       .3
Grapefruit         .3
Cantaloupe       .4
Honeydew        .4
Papaya             .4
Peaches           .4
Tangerines .4
Apricots .5
Pineapple .5
Oranges .6
Plums .6
Blueberries .6
Apples .6

Ripe fruit is rich in nonfluorescent chlorophyll catabolites which are super extra anti-oxidents.  They eliminate free radicals that can cause all types of illness in the body.  Studies suggest that vine ripened fruit has twice as many metabolism revving carotenoids then fruit thats picked when its green.  The longer the fruit is on the vine the more nutrients it picks up from the soil.  Best bets are buying local produce from farmers markets that have been vine ripened to help aid in the weight loss battle.

Top Three Reasons Why You Should Eat Slowly

Attacking that sandwich, pasta, salad or chips as fast as you can may seem like the best idea when you’re hungry. But take heed, eating slowly will benefit you in ways that you’ll like and in more ways than one.

1. Better Digestion. Eating slowly means you’re chewing and breaking the food better, which results to better digestion. It’s best to chew thoroughly to give ample time to your stomach to prepare.

2. Weight Loss. Studies show that eating slowly means consuming much fewer calories. You can even lose almost 20 pounds a year just by eating slowly and without doing anything different! Eating slowly also makes you feel a lot fuller in no time. So if you’re on a diet and want to lose weight, better incorporate eating slowly into your lifestyle.

3. Enjoyment and Choosing Better Food. Do you know that most factory-produced foods are designed to taste great for the first three bites only? If you chew slowly, you’ll notice that the food begins to taste bland and ordinary after the three bites. Eating slowly gives you the chance to really taste the food and at the same time reach out for better options because natural foods like fruits and salads taste good even after three bites. Overall, you’ll have a better and more satisfying dining experience instead of feeling all sluggish and heavy after a meal.

What to Consider when Buying a Bathroom Scale

image Anytime you decide to go on a diet the bathroom scale becomes your best friend. You visit it often during the day to check for any changes or discrepancies in what you think you should be weighing. When deciding on what type will work best for you here are a few tips:

  • Clean Concise numbers – The scale you choose should have numbers you can easily read.
  • Accuracy – One of the most important things to keep in mind is accuracy of the scale. You want a scale that will give you the most accurate read out possible.
  • Bonus Features – if you want any extras keep that in mind when looking for scale. Digital Voice, Body fat measure, Glass, Compact design; these are all extra features that may interest you
  • Do your research – Use the internet to find out the reviews of different scales that you are interested in. You can also ask a fitness expert which one would be best for you.
  • Weight Range – Always make sure that your starting weight is listed on the scale.

A bathroom scale is a needed part of your diet routine if you are looking to really keep track of your losses. Don’t just opt for the cheapest, get the one that fits your needs.

Belly Dancing

One of the things I’ve always wanted to try out was Belly Dancing, but somehow I never had the time. This art of dance has always intrigued me because it looked almost exotic and very graceful and feminine. In addition, I heard that it could also benefit the body and health in more ways than one. Here are just some of the supposed benefits of Belly Dancing that I’ve gathered:

1. It can improve posture and build the back muscles evenly. This is something I (and perhaps many people) especially need because I tend to hunch at times.

2. It tones the overall body. When we are in static positions most of the day, especially when we have a lot of work, we don’t use our muscles as much as they need to be used. Hence, they can become flabby or weak. Belly dancing is a lovely form of exercise that can tone our muscles in our enjoyable way.

3. It can reduce stress! To many people, belly dancing is a great stress reliever and one exercise that allows them to let go and be free of the negative thoughts for the whole session.

4. It can aid weight loss. More than anything, belly dancing is an exercise that burns the extra calories we have eaten within the day. No wonder more and more gyms are offering belly dancing classes.

What do you know about belly dancing? 🙂
