Great Weight Loss Foods

Last time you had a salad for your main meal, did you leave the table hungrier than a wolf in a cabbage patch? Sure, a big bowl of greens is good for you, but you'll be raiding the refrigerator an hour later if it doesn't have more going for it than that. Yet if it does, a salad can be seriously satisfying, even for you carnivores out there.

 

The Good, The Bad And The Ugly Salad Facts

Sure, salads keep you looking good in your Speedo or tankini and give your brain and body a big-time nutrition bump: You're significantly more likely to get your fill of vitamins if you're a salad hound, according to a joint UCLA/Louisiana State University study (we don't have a clue how those two got together). What's more, feasting on veggies (plus some lean protein) helps you fend off cancer, osteoperosis, stroke, and ordinary aging.

 It’s become pretty clear to scientists that low level chronic inflammation is at the root of several chronic diseases.  In fact, these diseases are the major epidemics of the 21st century.   What’s a chronic disease?  It’s a diagnosis for something you live with and try to manage—until it kills you.  You don't cure it.  You’ try to stay ahead of it.  Maybe you have one of the most common 21st century chronic diseases:  cardio-vascular disease including high blood pressure, colorectal cancer,  type 2 diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Alzheimer’s, or thyroid diseases.

Alcohol And Fat Loss – What You Need To Know

One  question that often presents itself to many dieters who are trying to  shed the excess weight that has accumulated over time is whether or not alcohol can be included in their diet plan. Alcohol is something that most adults do like to indulge in from time to time – some more often than others. So what’s the real deal about alcohol and your progress? Is this something  that you can make room for in your diet or is it something that you  need to give the boot?

Alcohol Calories and How To Count Them

The very first  thing that you need to take note of when counting alcohol calories is how many calories are found in alcohol. Alcohol itself contains seven calories per gram, whereas both  proteins and carbs contain just four. Fat comes in at the highest  calorie value per gram at nine, which places alcohol right in the  middle. But what’s often worse is what the alcohol is mixed with.

If you’re drinking your alcohol with high calorie or fat mixers such as  cream, sodas, or sugary mixers you could easily end up with a drink that  packs in well over 300 calories per serving. If you take in three or four of these over the course of the night, it’s really going to add up.

Zucchini Health Benefits

8 Health Benefits of Zucchini by Eat This

As a part of the summer squash family, zucchini not only offers delightful taste and texture to many dishes, but also carries with it many health benefits. Here are eight reasons why you should include it in your diet.

Low calorie
One cup of zucchini has 36 calories and 10% of the RDA of dietary fiber, which aids in digestion, prevents constipation, maintains low blood sugar and curbs overeating.

Lower Cholesterol
The dietary fiber in zucchini helps lower cholesterol by attaching itself to bile acids that the liver makes from cholesterol for digesting fat. Because fiber binds so well with bile acid, thus crowding its ability to immediately digest fat, the liver is charged with producing more bile acid.

The liver then draws upon even more cholesterol to produce bile acid, consequently lowering the overall cholesterol level in the body. Furthermore, the high levels of vitamin C and vitamin A prevent cholesterol from oxidizing in the body's blood vessels, thus hampering the onset of atherosclerosis.

Healthy Food Choice

Do you want to lose weight?  If you answered "YES!!!", the next step you need to take is to get really clear on WHY you want to lose weight.

Your WHY holds the key to your ability to make the daily choices needed to accomplish your goal.

If the answer is "because I know I should" or "because my doctor said I needed to", you are already setting yourself up to fail.  "Should" and "need to" don't have enough positive energy to propel you forward. 
You'll do just enough to take the edge off and then slip back into your old, comfortable habits…one more diet failure!

Changing your daily habits takes effort, focus and commitment.  It doesn't just happen because you know you should!  It happens because you have a WHY that is so strong to lose weight and get healthy, you will do whatever it takes to achieve it.
