All You Need To Know To Lose Weight

Weight loss comes only with effort and time, and after the weight is gone you need to continually keep healthy habits to keep the weight off. Everything you eat and drink (excluding water) has calories. Everything you do burns calories. This is simple. To lose weight you need to have a balanced intake and outgo of the calories. There are two things which are essential in weight loss: diet (intake), and exercise (outgo).

Diet – Your diet controls how many calories you consume.

Salads – Salads with tomato, carrot, cabbage, lettuce, or cucumber are all low in calories. Rather than adding salad dressing, use lemon juice as a salad dressing,
Grapes and oranges – Grapes, though high in sugar, as long as you limit yourself, they are good for you. 100 grams of grapes have only 70 calories. Oranges have only 48 calories each.
Curds – When made with skim milk curds are scarce in calories and are full of nutrients and proteins. All you need to do is add a little fruit to cover the blandness in curds.
Cereal – Those who consume breakfasts which are high in fiber are more likely to eat less lunch. Try and find a cereal which has lots of fiber.
Ginger – When foods are flavored with strong spices such as ginger, you are more likely to eat less and be satisfied.


Exercise
– How much and what exercise you do controls your outgo of calories.

Weightlifting – Although weightlifting is mostly focused on building muscles, it also burns a significant amount of calories.
Running – Running is a great idea as it helps you to burn a great deal of calories and is healthy for your body in every way.
Step Aerobics – Step aerobics require little props and can burn up to 400 calories in 30 minutes.
Other options include weight loss medications, and dietary supplements. See your doctor to see if other weight loss options apply to you.

Weight Loss Surgery – Should I?

Weight loss surgery, or gastric bypass, involves stapling the abdomomen to make a small stomach pouch. The remainder of the stomach is not removed, but stapled shut. The small stomach is connected to the small intestine so that your large stomach is unused. This makes you less hungry, and fuller by eating smaller portions. Weight loss surgery has many risks and benefits.

Benefits

1. Eat less – An obvious benefit to weight loss surgery is the fact that you are no longer as hungry and so you lose weight. As long as you eat the right foods you should be able to rapidly lose weight. On average a successful patient loses between 70 and 80% of their access weight.

2. Cures other things – With weight loss surgery, some other food related issues can improve or even be resolved completely. Some of these conditions are diabetes, sleep apnea, asthma, urinary stress incontinence, gastro esophageal reflux, dyslipidaemia, and hypertension.

3. Reduce death risk – With weight loss surgery your risk of dying from being obese lessens by up to 895.

Risks

1. Death – The worst risk when it comes to the weight loss surgery, is dying during the operation. This is extremely rare. Statistics say 0% of people die during or soon after weight loss surgery because of its rarity.

2. Lacking Iron and Calcium – Unfortunately with Bariatric surgery the duodenum(the 1st part of the small intestine) is bypassed and results in reduced absorption of iron and calcium into your body. This may consequently increase your chance of getting iron deficiency anemia. Osteoporosis is already a high risk for women after menopause, so women should be warned by the potential for heightened bone calcium loss.

3. “Dumping syndrome” – Dumping Syndrome is another risk in weight loss surgery. This is when the stomach empties its contents into the small intestine too quickly. It is more commonly triggered when either too much sugar or too much food is consumed. Although this is not serious to your health, the symptoms are unpleasant. Some patients cannot eat sugar after the surgery because of “dumping syndrome.”

Although weight loss surgery may seem like a good option, there are a lot of risks to consider which are associated with weight loss surgery. It is important to mull over both the risks and benefits before choosing.

5 Foods to Cut From Your Diet

Obesity is a major problem in North America and worldwide. One-third of American adults are obese. There are diet pills and tons of books written on weight loss and solutions. Fortunately small changes like omitting a few foods from your diet can have an immense effect.

1. Avoid white bread
Although something like a sandwich is considerably healthy, it is best if you do not use white bread. White bread has no nutritional value. White bread is equivalent to table sugar. It has high glucose levels and lacks any other important nutrients. A simple whole wheat bread offers much better nutritional value and is a good alternative.

2. Ice cream
Ice cream is tremendously calorie dense. It is full of sugar; one cup of vanilla ice cream has over 360 calories. A solution to this is to buy yogurt, and freeze it. Make sure you mix it before freezing it if it isn’t the premixed kind. It tastes just as good as ice cream, but has less calories and is a better, healthier snack.

3. No Pop!
The average pop can has 10 packets of sugar, which add up to 150 empty calories. Pop has been pegged guilty of association with childhood and adult obesity. A better option to a can of pop are fruit spritzers, or vanilla extract which you can add to plain seltzer water or tonic water.

4. Full fat cheeses
Full fat cheeses can have up to 10 grams of fat per ounce with a lot of saturated fat included. For example, lasagna is filled with cheese and saturated fat, which makes it a bad choice for dieters. A better alternative to full fat cheeses are low fat ricotta cheese. For other dairy products the healthier options include skim milk, plain yogurt (add your own fruit), and cottage cheese.

5. Regular bacon
Although bacon is extremely tempting and delicious, it is fried fat and salt. 2 slices of regular bacon contain 120 calories and 10 grams of fat. Cured meats, including bacon, have been linked to dangerous stomach and colon cancers. A better option would be vegetarian sausage. 2 links of this only have 80 calories and 3 grams of fat. Turkey bacon is another healthy choice, saving you 40 calories, and 7g fat.

Although it seems hard and almost impossible at times to lose weight, certain changes to your diet and lifestyle can greatly contribute to weight loss.
