From foods to stay away from such as corn syrup and junk foods to just things you can do better like not wait until you are starved to eat, there are plenty of quick and easy lose weight fast tricks that anyone can try and likely succeed in accomplishing!
These tricks have been listed below, so please feel free to try them out and let us know what you think.
1. Stay Away From Corn Syrup
High fructose corn syrup will make you gain more weight than sugar. It is made from the starch of maize and contains various amounts of maltose and higher oligosaccharides. It is used in foods to prevent crystallization of sugar, add volume, soften texture and enhance flavor. It is also a thicker, sweetener and used as a humectant (retains moisture and thus freshness in foods). Because it is cheaper to make than cane sugar it is widely used in soft drinks, fruit drinks, sports drinks, candies and mass-produced foods. It is also the one culprit that experts blame for the massive obesity rates and type two diabetes. Despite efforts by the corn industry to convince consumers and health care professionals of the safety of their product it has also been linked to liver failure, dementia, cancer, tooth decay, heart disease and so on.
It triggers big spikes in insulin which is our body’s major fat storage hormone and leads to metabolic disturbances that increase your appetite. It can also literally punch holes in your intestinal lining allowing partially digested food proteins and byproducts of toxic gut bacteria to enter your blood stream which causes inflammation in your body. Inflammation in your body is the root of all chronic diseases. Corn syrup often contains toxic levels of mercury. So please read the labels on the foods you buy, if it mentions corn syrup or high fructose corn syrup stay as far away from it as you can as it means that particular product will have no or very little essential nutrients in the form of minerals, vitamins, fiber, antioxidants and phytonutrients.
2. Stay Away From Junk Food
Junk foods are just foods that are high in sugar, fat, salt, calories and of little nutritional value. Products that are mass produced and non-organic, like fried fast foods, soft drinks, candies, most sweet desserts, salty snacks and so on. Stay clear of fast food restaurants and processed foods. You can become highly addicted to these as it alters your brain activity in a way that is similar to drugs like heroin or cocaine. In the long run as your brain becomes desensitized the more junk food you eat the more you need to eat in order to get the same level of satisfaction. Eating junk foods while pregnant will make your little one more likely to become addicted to it later in life.
3. Don’t Wait Till You Are Starved To Eat
Snack on something healthy like a freshly made organic vegetable and fruit juice or some nuts, a piece of fruit or homemade kefir. If you know you will be out of the house for long periods of time be sure to take a snack with you. Especially if you know you have to go out food shopping or will be near junk food type restaurants. When you wait too long to eat it becomes so much harder to resist temptations and you might end up cracking and reaching out for the nearest naughty food you encounter.
4. Opt For Healthy Organic Foods
Make an effort to always choose the healthier version of any food. I know it can be a little difficult at first as we must fight a lifetime of bad habits. Buy as much fresh organic produce as you can. Even if you change some habits little by little it will soon add up. Make your meals yourself; that way you know exactly what is in there and you can control the portions. One top tip is to use Himalayan salt instead of mineral void table salt. Contrary to table salt, Himalayan salt is actually good for you and you should consume it. A diet without salt is not something anyone should recommend as good quality salt is essential to our health and most people are actually deficient in it.
5. Eat Your Food Slowly And Take The Time To Fully Enjoy It
Eating is so wonderful and pleasurable. When chewing your food actually take the time to savor the flavors. Not only should you chew your food fully before swallowing in order to help your digestive system, but savoring your food helps you pre-digest your food with the help of the digestive enzymes, which are in your mouth before it enters your stomach. When you take the time to chew your food longer you enjoy it more and you will recognize the signs of fullness better. You should never leave the table feeling “stuffed”. This will cause you to gain extra pounds as your stomach is overloaded and has to work much harder to digest that food. It is very hard however if, like me, you are used to feeling “stuffed” after every meal. Therefore it is something you have to learn to control and make a conscious effort to tell yourself that you can have a healthy snack later on if hungry.
6. Don’t Drink Too Much Alcohol
Alcohol turns into sugar once in your body. Mixing alcohol and high fructose corn syrup is even worst as the mix of the two is converted by your liver into fat. Especially avoid binge drinking. Although an organic red wine would be the healthiest form of alcohol to consume there are still plenty of negative drawbacks that give you enough of a reason to seriously limit or stop altogether your consumption of alcohol.
So stop despairing about your weight and wondering why this diet and that diet hasn’t worked for you. These are only a few lose weight fast tricks so make the effort to look for more ways to become healthier. Apply little changes to your habits daily till they become routine. Vote with your money and buy organic so that big companies will follow suit. Think in terms of your general health not just about losing weight. Include the whole family even if they don’t need to lose any weight. Educate yourself so that you can educate your children and others.
