Portion Control Effective to Lose Weight

Portion Control Effective to Lose Weight

Studies show that one of major reasons we gain weight is due to meal portions. 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.

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. Today most American diets are rich in processed foods. Processed foods have no real nutritional value (no poly fats, no protein, no vitamins or minerals or antioxidants) it is truly like ingesting sugar.

Chia Seeds for Weight Loss

Chia Seeds for Weight Loss

Chia seeds are harvested from the Salvia hispanica plant, a type of sage in the mint family. The seeds are high in omega-3 fatty acids and have versatile uses in the kitchen. Chia seeds were a staple of the ancient Aztec diet, and they are now grown commercially in Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Guatemala, and Mexico. Why do Chia Seeds Help Increase Weight Loss? Chia Seeds work to slow digestion and the body’s absorption of carbohydrates. This helps maintain the feeling of fullness and minimizes blood sugar spikes. Keeping balanced levels of blood sugar is also important for both health and energy. Blood sugar may spike after meals, especially if you eat high-starchy foods or sweets. This can lead to slumps in your day where you feel tired and out of energy.
