Portion control is an effective way to lose weight because when you Monitor your portion sizes, you decrease the amount of food that you eat. A study published in Obesity Research found that portion control produced more weight loss in a pool of obese subjects than reduced fat intake, increased fruit and vegetable consumption, and increased exercise. It’s not just obese men and women who can benefit from eating smaller portions. Most of us, regardless of our size, eat more food than our grandparents did. In fact, research suggests that the average American male eats seven percent more calories per day now than he did in 1980, while the average American woman consumes 17 percent more calories daily. American waistlines are growing due to inactivity and increased food consumption at home and at restaurants. Part of the problem is “portion distortion” — we don’t know what a standard serving size is. How much one eats is...

High Fiber for Weight Loss

High Fiber for Weight Loss

Fiber increases weight loss because… Research has shown that people who consume an additional 14 grams of fiber daily cut their calories intake by 10 percent. Fiber increases the sensation of fullness and influences the hormones that regulate food intake.  Fiber is an essential part of our daily diet, because it helps our bodies feel full while eliminating fat deposits from our body. Whole gains and whole wheat are high in fiber so including whole wheat and gains in your daily diet is a great way to get your daily fiber intake.

Processed foods have no real nutritional value (no poly fats, no protein, no vitamins or minerals or antioxidants) it is truly like ingesting sugar. Most of us now get the majority of our food from cardboard boxes and plastic containers. Which means we are getting way too much highly processed foods, stuff stripped of the natural ingredients that keep us lean and healthy, and pumped full of unnatural ingredients...
