Remember that the time that fresh fruit lasts will vary a lot with the climate, in some areas, fruits that are normally stored at room temperature may need to be stored in the fridge due to high temperatures and vice versa. Beware of tricks used by supermarkets to make produce look fresher.A Fruit and vegetables are often sprayed with a fine mist of water to appear a€?dewya€™ and fresh, and whilst market vegetables may be imperfect to look at, chances are they are actually fresher.
Different fruits require different storage techniques to keep them fresh for the longest time possible.A Fruit should be kept unwashed and gently rinsed in cold water before eating, unless they are very dirty, in which case they should be washed carefully and completely dried before storage. In general fruits that are stored in the fridge should be covered in a plastic bag or wrapped in plastic to protect from contamination from other foods and avoid contact with oxygen. Berries also freeze well, but should be places spread out on a tray to freeze initially, to prevent the berries freezing together.A Once they are frozen they can be stored together in a freezer bag. Grapes: These should be stored in a plastic bag unwashed in the refrigerator crisper and can last around five days.
Apples: these can be stored in the refrigerator or in a cool dark place and can last up to four months under the right conditions.
Many of the fruits we buy are under ripe, and so require ripening before we can eat them.A This is best done at room temperature. Lemons and limes:A These can absorb flavours from the fridge and last a long time at room temperature anyway.
Oranges: These should also be stored at room temperature, and will usually last up to two weeks when ambient temperature isna€™t too high. As with fruit, vegetables should be stored unwashed in plastic bags and then rinsed before eating. Corn:A For best results leave corn in husks and eat as soon as possible as even in the crisper, these will only last one to two days. We have all been in the situation when we have a large quantity of fruit or vegetables on our hands that is reaching the end of its days and if left longer will be inedible.A Rather than waste this food, there are numerous ways to use up produce if there is simply too much to eat before it goes off.
Omelettes:A Any vegetable can be thrown into a omelette for a quick, nutritious lunch or dinner.
Ice cream or frozen yogurt:A Ripe fruit is ideal in as an ingredient in a frozen dessert as they give more flavour and add nutritional value. Pickles:A Pickling vegetables is a great way to use up a surplus of stock and the finished product will last for ages.
Soups:A Cook up a quick vegetables soup to use up an excess of stock, then freeze to eat as a quick healthy meal later. Frozen vegetables are great to have on hand for a quick nutritious meal and eliminate the worry of using up food that is going to go off. In this article we have gathered 5 exercises which they use your own bodya€™s weight but they can still provide a fat burning and muscle building workout.
These exercises are not the only a€?besta€™ exercises you can do as there is a plethora of exercises which will deliver good results. The exercises below are placed in an order in which they could be performed as a little circuit workout and alternate the muscle groups they target. Push up or press ups as they may also be called, target the muscles on the chest, shoulders, arms, and back. Easier variations include push ups against the wall (if you are really unfit) or the keeping the legs bend (on fours). Rear leg raises target the muscles at the back of the legs (hamstrings), and buttocks (gluteal). The stick up exercise works the upper back, and shoulder muscles and also those muscles located in the shoulder blades (scapula). There are variations in which you perform the exercise against the wall or lying on the floor. Sticking to a weight loss regime can be a hard job especially if it involves losing the weight in long period of time. If you slipped out of your goals and had a bit more than you should dona€™t go back thinking that you have to make up for it.
Do you find yourself slipping up all the time and it is hard to stay on your weight loss goals?
Go back to the beginning and think what makes you slip up, what is hard about it and why it doesna€™t work.
One way to start in motivating yourself is by thinking how much you have achieved so far and concentrate on the positive. If you have hit the dreaded plateau point and you are not sure how to get going again try being more physically active.
It is time to stop being negative about yourself and start loving what you see in the mirror every day. Change that attitude towards to a more positive and loving way, your body is something precious and it does deserve the best you can give to it. It is all good and well to say you need to lose the weight but it wona€™t come off by talking. If you leave it to an abstract a€?I am going to starta€™ it may never happen or there may 100s of excuses why it should be tomorrow.
People often have a reason why they slip off their goals or why they find it hard to get back on. There are ways to work around busy lifestyles when a€?dietinga€™, or opt for weight loss regimes which are flexible and suit your taste and lifestyle rather than strict weight loss plans, or little tricks you can do to cut down on the biscuits and sweets (see also how to control your desire for food). The Pilates technique was introduced by Joseph Pilates as a form of exercise in America (1926) and ever since they have grown into popularity and are now accepted in their use.
The supporters and developers of different Pilates techniques claim a number of benefits to their name from improving posture and balance to losing weight, and those who use them will vouch that miracles do happen.
Although the different Pilates methods developed can vary in their technique, they are all based in the a€?classica€™ technique created by Joseph Pilates. Research in Pilates in general tends to be of poor quality and has been a controversial subject.
There is very little research which has looked into Pilates in weight loss and is not of high quality. In theory it is a form of physical activity, and as with any kind of physical activity some energy expenditure and some fitness gains will be achieved.
Here is a step-by-step guide on how to lose weight with pilates and generally what you need to have in mind when choosing Pilates for weight loss.
Pilates is not the appropriate exercise choice if you are looking to increase calorie expenditure radically or you need to achieve large improvements in aerobic and strength components. For those who are in general inactive and do not exercise at all Pilates will provide a challenge to the muscles and could result in higher energy expenditure (in very simple terms calorie burning).
Regulations on Pilates certifications are not strict or very clear cut and a number of instructors may have just completed a weekend course which in some cases does not provide them with the appropriate skills. They could also help with reducing fat deposition in the abdominal and waist area (what some people can refer to as a€?love handlesa€™) and the hips. This article will look into some basic metabolic principles and how does energy expenditure (calorie burning) work so as to understand better how to lose weight if you have a slow metabolism.
In order to understand what a€?slowa€™ or a€?fasta€™ metabolism is and how it affects weight gain, we will first explain some basic metabolic principles. The rate in which the cells break food into energy (or simplified the rate in which we burn calories) is the metabolic rate. Each persona€™s metabolic rate depends on genetics, hereditary factors and amount of lean body mass (i.e. An important thing to understand here is that regulation of energy metabolism and body weight takes place by highly complex systems and is not as simple as a€?slowa€™ and a€?fasta€™ metabolism. A second step is to look into which factors can cause substantial changes in the metabolic regulation and affect the metabolic rate and what makes some people to burn calories slower or faster.
Some of the factors are summarised in table1 below; for the purposes of this article we will concentrate only at the aspects which can cause the metabolism to slow down. Hypothyroidism: in simple words is when the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormones. There are a number of different conditions and these can range in the way they affect metabolism and weight gain. This could include very low calorie diets, fasting for religious or other purposes, anorexia etc.
During menopause a number of hormonal changes take place some of which influence metabolism. You could try every trick on the book for metabolism or weight loss but if not appropriate you could actually be harming yourself and worsening a condition. Any form of physical activity will increase the rate in which we burn calories so you dona€™t necessarily have to join the gym, simple things such as going for a walk, taking the kids swimming, or cleaning the house can help. These are just guidelines and calorie intake does depend on individual factors such as levels of physical activity, age and body build. There are healthy ways of decreasing calories or increasing energy expenditure instead for losing weight without having to resolve into very low calorie diets. Although in cold weather we do burn more calories, chronic exposure to cold can actually lead into weakening of the immune system and being ill. Answer: (b) Fried foods often add unwanted inches to the abdominal area as the majority of their calories come from saturated fat.
Answer: (c) Cranberries are specifically helpful in flushing any impurities from the kidneys.
Used in conjunction with resistance trainingor an anaerobic exercise such as weightlifting, you will indeed lose weight in the abdominal area. Answer: (a) Believe it or not, ita€™s been found that you can eat a small amount of dark chocolate without any adverse effects. If you do not have a personal goal and are unsure how much weight loss to aim for, there are ways to work it out.
Below we have summarised some of the methods, most commonly used to classify people according to their weight and body measurements.
Regardless of how much weight you want to lose dona€™t aim in losing more than 1-1.5 kg per week.
You may be on your ideal weight or even slightly underweight but you know that there is a bit of a tummy, or an annoying big bottom etc. You may need to lose 200 lbs in order to reach your ideal weight but you dona€™t particularly want to be Americaa€™s next top model.
Firstly being obsessed may not be a good place to be, secondly all these numbers are guides and not a setting stone. Here we haveA summarizedA the following, body mass index (BMI) measurement, waist-to-hip ratio and waist circumference. For example, you may be within your ideal weight range but you may have a high waist circumference which could indicate a high risk to specific health conditions.
Ideally you can have direct body composition measurements, such as bioelectrical impedance, which can determine the percentage of fat, lean mass, and water in the body. BMI is a simple way to classify individuals within ranges according to their weight and height. Once you have calculated your current BMI then you can look on the table below to see at which category you are. Once you have calculated your WHR you can look at the table below to see if you are within a range which increases risk of developing health conditions. For example if you are on a normal range BMI but have a high WHR you could be looking at losing weight from your abdominal area (belly).
The table below shows the classifications of waist circumference in relation to the health risk. I know that sometimes physician may tell you that you must lose weight for your health but often dona€™t tell you how or how much. In this article I am going to present 5 foods to avoid while dieting or at least reduce their consumption to a minimum in order to succeed in your weight lost and reach an optimum health.
All the following foods can have some harmful effects, so try to avoid all of them and start eating healthier today. Many people who are committed to having a healthy life style have been convinced in believing that processed unfermented soy products are good for health.
Soy contains natural toxins (anti-nutrients) which interfere with enzymes needed for protein digestion.
Moreover, majority of soy on US market is genetically modified (GMO) (European soy should be a€?GMOA cleana€?, but there is no guarantee due to contamination through natural pollination). Scientific theories suggest that in nature foods would not normally contain large amounts of fructose. One theory of how this happens suggests that fructose has a greater potential in turning into fat in the liver in comparison to glucose (ordinary sugar). Everybody needs some fat in their diet, however, the chemical structure of fat plays an important role in the way is processed in the body and the health implications it can have. In brief it is suggested by studies that trans fats can cause more health problems than saturated fats.
I think, these days, just about everybody is aware about the harmful effects of sugar in both the waistline and health. In addition, to the high calorific properties of sugar it can also increase health risks such as development of insulin resistance and diabetes. In addition sugar can make insulin to rise in the body sharply and fall sharply which amongst others it can make you feel hungry, irritable, and tired.

Oh Halloween – what a fun time: Parties and costumes and trick-or-treaters and brightly colored sweets everywhere! A recent study reported in the Journal of the American Medical Association found that weight loss results from low carb and low fat diets were similar after one year. National physical activity experts report that workers today are burning an average of 120 to 140 fewer calories a day than workers in the 1960s.
Your body can absorb the nutrients in the food more readily, since it is broken down better. A British study shows taking a short, brisk walk can reduce the amount of snacking you do at work. February is Heart Health Month, which makes it a great time for individuals to evaluate their lifestyle and how it may be contributing to or harming their heart’s wellbeing. We Minnesotans are used to the snow and cold of winter, but this season has seemed especially brutal, hasn't it? The below-zero windchills and heavy snow make it feel easier to stay indoors and eat at our desk than to go out or go home for lunch.
Dieting can be frustrating when the scale is not showing a decrease in pounds or the weight is not staying off. Here's another great OPTIFAST success story!In her late twenties, Elizabeth began taking a new medication which caused her to rapidly gain weight. Researchers have found that people who are overweight have an increased risk of loss in brain volume, which could translate to decreased mental function later in life. If you need a little extra help keeping track of your daily food intake and planning meals, we have some technology suggestions that can help!
The habit of snacking appears to be more common now than several decades ago, and it could be affecting people's waistlines. A study found that if you are over the age of 35, drinking two cups of water before every meal is an effective weight management tool. You may have heard in the news recently that the American Medical Association designated obesity as a disease.

Now I will fully admit that I was skeptical about this one, but a few studies have been done and proven that people who give their food a proper good chewing before they swallow, consume less calories than those who eat like a duck and just send something straight down their gullet as soon as it hits their mouth. Having a kitchen or a work desk full of healthy snacks is a great way to avoid eating unhealthy food at home and while you are at work, but what do you do when you are, say out shopping or just out for a walk?
I have told people until I am blue in the face that one great way to help your weight loss is to stop eating of dinner plates that look like they are a satellite dish. The matter is that our body register that we are full only for 20 minutes after we get full. Easy and healthy way to lose weight fast is to embrace a habit of drinking a glass of plain water each time 10 minutes before eating a meal.
Mona Liz is a beauty and healthy lifestyle enthusiast with a passion for writing, music, cats, fitness, and food. A lot of people would be happy to know a handful of exercises which they can do at home and still have the fat burning benefits.
I dona€™t believe in absolute statements such as a€?the very best of exercisesa€™ or a€?the only exercisesa€™. You can use these in combination to another workout or pick the ones you like and use them with others you may have in your list. When you are exercising your body will use calories (energy) to fuel the exercise, no matter what exercise it is.
In very simple terms, the exercise must place some considerable challenge in your body and muscles in order to a€?build musclea€™. The more muscle mass you have the more calories and fat you will burn even when youa€™re resting.
You can buy a€?speciala€™ skipping ropes but in my opinion any rope which is suitable for your height is fine.
Perform for 3 min at the start of your workout to get your muscles and cardiopulmonary systems going, and then for another 5 min at the end.
There are a number of variations in performance and when performed on the floor with straight legs then they also work leg tummy and buttocks as stabilisers.
Extended legs and toes tacked in to the floor (raise on to your toes), keep your back straight. A good exercise which can offer some relief from upper back stiffness especially if cause from sitting in a desk for a long time. The first few weeks it is easy to keep motivated especially if you can see the pounds falling off. It is unlikely that one daya€™s overeating will tip the scales, but if you give up now it will be even harder to start again. Your body keeps adjusting to losing weight and it can slow down in the speed it loses weight. Following a specific diet for a couple of weeks can be easy, but following the same all diet for months can be like a prison sentence and no surprise people want to just escape from it.
I have already mentioned above about re-evaluating your regime and whether it works for you. Plateaus and slowdown can generate a lot of frustration and you can easily give up on your goals. Maybe you have a few or a lot of extra pounds and it could be that you are fed up with the way you look.
Losing the extra weight is not about punishing yourself for all the takeaways and binges of the last years but more like looking after a€?youa€™. Having someone to do it together can provide the drive and the motivation to start again and stick to a weight loss regime.
This reason can be different for each one and could range from not being able to resist a chocolate to I havena€™t got time to cook. If you want to follow a relatively low calorie diet, and lose a lot of weight fast, but without giving up sweets or chips it may not be possible. In its essence the a€?Pilates methoda€™ is a series of exercises which use the bodya€™s own weight and resistance.
The little research that has been carried out does suggest that Pilates exercises can help to lower the Body Mass Index (BMI)and achieve weight loss. Pilates exercises, especially those for beginners, are a more a€?gentlea€™ form of exercise and will not result in burning huge amounts of calories. The apparatus provide resistance, and increase the difficulty of the exercise and in result the effort made to carry out the exercise. If any exercise is not performed properly and to the appropriate difficulty level, it can lead to back injuries, muscle strains, joint and ligament injuries etc.
If a muscle becomes more conditioned and works more efficiently it will in return burn fat more efficiently.
Results of Pilates on weight loss may be more prominent in terms of losing a€?incesa€™ in and around the areas conditioned (see previous point) rather than in kilos lost. It could be more suitable for people who to start off cana€™t sustain heavy or intense exercise or prefer classes rather than gym sessions. For more radical results in achieving weight loss is best combined with other forms of exercise and physical activity. As with every exercise, for muscular effects to take place it can take approximately 4 weeks.
Muscles need an appropriate amount of challenge for fitness gains, and a good fitness professional should be able to provide you with the correct level, program and routine for your individual needs.
Firstly metabolism is the combination of processes that take place in the body in order to function and maintain life. Some of these can affect directly the metabolic rate and others can affect hormones or organs which are involved in metabolic regulation and result in dysfunctional metabolism.
One of the effects of hypothyroidism is decreased metabolic rate, and changes in the metabolic regulation. It affects production of some hormones which are involved in metabolic and appetite regulation. Menopause has been associated with low energy expenditure at rest and exercise and increase in central fat deposit and fasting insulin levels. Some scientist will argue that the decrease in the metabolic rate starts as early as 25 years of age. Increase your muscle mass: Probably one of the most important ways of increasing the metabolic rate. Avoid very low calorie diets: As mentioned above very low calorie diets can decrease the metabolic rate (see table 1). For a sedentary person who consumes 3000 calories a day is safe to aim reducing the calories within the recommended ranges. Do not skip meals: Delaying having breakfast will actually help in burning more fat as fuel. In other words avoid loads of small meals and snacks (healthy or not) but aim to have all the meals in a day (i.e. Increase protein intake: Some studies have shown that protein does help in increasing the metabolic rate.
Caffeine: Caffeine is considered to increase the metabolic rate and the use of fat as fuel. Sleep well: As mentioned earlier sleep deprivation can affect the bodya€™s metabolic processes. Cold: Cold does increase metabolic rate as the body works harder in order to sustain its body temperature.
So torturing yourselves with a T-shirt in the snow or with iced baths is definitely not recommended. Take the following multiple choice quiz and see if you know all there is to know about how to shrink you waistline and keep the inches off. This type of fat is made from animal products and is also known to raise the level of cholesterol in the bloodstream.
Low-fat dairy foods, such as yogurt or skim milk are actually helpful in getting rid of belly fat as they release fat from fat cells in the abdominals and therefore reduce the amount of fat that is absorbed. Hot peppers of any kind contain capsaicin which increases the capacity for the body to burn calories by as much as five to ten percent. Combined, all of the above approaches work as they speed up the bodya€™s ability to burn calories and therefore reduce belly fat. Therefore, by simply doubling your fiber intake, how much weight, on average, can you lose in a year? Ita€™s been shown that if you simply alter your eating habits and include foods that contain more fiber, you will also see a lower number on the bathroom scale. Although crunches are good for toning and strengthening the abdominal area, they will not necessarily reduce the fat.
Thata€™s because resistance training causes you to keep burning calories even afterA you’veA completed your session of exercise. All of the foods listed are rich in fiber and can help you lose weight if consumed in conservative portions. These methods can help you determine if you are overweight, obese or even within a healthy weight range. When it comes to weight loss a€?too much too fasta€™ is not recommended for health reasons. Have the weight you feel comfortable with and happy with even if slightly over the line, as long as this does not affect your health. Dona€™t get obsessed with numbers such as your weight, your body mass index (see below), calories etc. As mentioned earlier in the case where you need to lose abdominal fat, a healthy balance dietmay be most adequate. Even 2 people who appear to have the same height do not necessarily mean that they would have the same weight.
Once you have an idea of your body measurements you can start planning on what you need to concentrate on. This brings us to the point of dona€™t just look at finding an exact weight goal from day one.
It takes about 2 weeks for your body to make long term changes and adapt (this can vary depending on each individual). If your weight loss is for mainly health reasons then it is also advisable to consult an appropriate medical professional. In that matter it is always recommended to advise a medical professional before taking any exercise or diet regime, especially if you there are pre-existing health complaints. I am sure you are familiar with several foods which are detrimental for your health and I may cover some of them, but I hope I will introduce something new for you. Soy is seen as miracle healthy food of 21st century.A The soy industry is a huge business and its popularity and success was the result of a massive investment in marketing. This form of soy is resistant to toxic herbicides Roundup; therefore it is loaded with this toxic pesticide.
In other words when you consume fructose it is more likely to be turned into fat and stored than if you were consuming ordinary sugar. The amount of fructose contained in fruit does not really translate in high amounts unless your diet consists of just fruit. Often people connect saturated fats with health risks and conditions, but if there is one fat to really watch is the trans-fat. They are believed to increase the risk for coronary heart disease and components of the metabolic syndrome.
When it comes to trying to avoid trans fats it can be a mind field as most food labels do not list the amount of trans fats they contain. It does make me sad to say that sugar has to go as I do love cakes, chocolate, sweets, cheesecakes…the list goes on. If your aim is weight loss then sugar is your number 1 enemy and it is definitely one of the foods to avoid while dieting.
In simple words when sugar enters the system, your body produces a hormone called insulin which one of its roles is to signal to the cells to absorb sugar. When the cells are chronically stimulated by insulin they can become kind of insensitive to it which can then lead to what is called insulin resistance and diabetes.
It's best described as the intersection of real food, functional movement, and psychology. The shame and guilt that people experience alongside their overeating challenge is massive and paralyzing.

The holiday season is no exception and is actually a great opportunity to show them how much you care. It is easy to make poor food choices when faced with all those sugar-covered treats — especially at Halloween parties. Also, the food is exposed for a longer period of time to enzymes in your mouth that help break down fat, improving digestion.

They claim this forces the body to use its fat reserves for fuel instead of the carbohydrates quickly available from a pre-workout meal or snack. Focus instead on getting a much more manageable 30 minutes of exercise, five times per week.
The problem is that we consume most of our protein at dinner time when we should be eating the most protein during breakfast to start off our day. The study included a control group, a group of subjects who ate three high-protein meals each day, and a third group who ate high-protein meals six times a day. We have all been in that situation where we have been invited out to go celebrate a birthday party, anniversary, you name it.

But we all deserve a night off every once and a while and if you want to have a beer then you have probably more than earned it.
The reasons for this are disputed with some claiming that it’s easier for your bodies to break down the food and others saying that giving food a good chewing helps burn off a few calories.
