6 Tips for Reducing Obesity
Little Goes A Long Way:
Obesity has been linked to several types of cancer. Specifically, being overweight causes inflammation that causes cell changes in the body. However, just by losing 5 percent of your body weight can significantly lower dangerous levels of inflammation.
Stress can make it difficult to lose weight. Stress can trigger cravings for carb-rich snack foods which tend to calm stress hormones. Stress hormones can also increase fat storage. In addition to physical exercise, relaxation techniques can help control weight.
A Good Night's Sleep:
Sleep deprivation can make it harder to lose weight. Inadequate sleep upsets a person's hormone balance, which decreases leptin (a hormone that makes a person feel full) and increases ghrelin (which triggers hunger). Scientists argue that getting enough sleep is the cheapest and easiest obesity medicine there is.
Pump It Up:
Muscle uses more calories to maintain itself than any other body tissue. For every pound of muscle someone puts on, they automatically burn an extra 22 to 36 more calories a day.
4 Basic Weight Loss Rules
: Amid the many hundreds of diet books are really only four basic rules for weight loss: 1) eat carbs in the form of whole grains or fiber, 2) avoid trans and saturated fats, 3) eat lean protein, and 4) eat lots of fruits and veggies.
The Most Important Meal:
Don't skip breakfast! A healthy breakfast rich in protein is key in having a huge impact on your appetite and help you to lose weight.
