Tips for Avoiding Weight Gain

 

If we had a magic cure for weight loss, then we would be rich. With all the junk food we consume, living in a society built around convenience and speed, it is no surprise 60% of American adults are obese.


There is no magic formula. The key is to consume less calories than we use, which in theory will keep us slim, but I do realize it is not that simple.

My tips to weight loss are

1) Get educated! Learn about nutrition. Read the differences between Complex carbs and simple carbs. Understand the differences between saturated fats, unsaturated fats and trans fats. Read about the balance between Protein, Carbs and Fats and most importantly Oils. We need good oils which are fats. Fish Oil, Olive Oil, Flaxseed Oil. The tip is if the oil is fluid at room temperature, then it does the same when we consume it and can be regarded as good oils.

2) Get Active. Walk, swim, jog work out, cycle…do whatever you think is fun but get off your butt. Climb stairs instead of using the elevator. Do not drive around the parking lot trying to get the closest parking spot to the shops, park away and walk.

3) Empty your cupboards and dump the chips, cookies, cakes and all the crap that has made you over-weight, same applies to your fridge. Replace with health drinks, fruit, vegetables, milk, eggs, chicken, cold meats,


4) Drink plenty of water

There are some natural products that people swear by that help them reduce fat and keep them slim.


Natural Apple Cider Vinegar: One of Mother Nature’s Most Perfect Foods Fermenting sweet juice makes vinegar. The juice turns to wine or cider which is allowed to ferment a second time until the alcohol mixes with oxygen in the air, changing it into acetic acid and water. Natural---that is, undistilled, organic, raw, apple cider vinegar is often called one of Mother Nature's most perfect foods. Apple cider vinegar should be made from fresh, organic, crushed apples that are allowed to mature naturally in wooden barrels. Natural apple cider vinegar, found in health food stores, should be a rich amber color with the "mother" quite visible as sentiment on the bottom. The strength of vinegar is important. All varieties of vinegar contain about 4 to 7 percent acetic acid, with 5 percent being the most common amount. Acetic acid is what gives vinegar its tart and sour taste.


There is nothing beneficial about commercial distilled vinegars except for pickling, cleaning and disinfection ---they have no health value! They do not contain the health values of organic, raw apple cider vinegar with the mother still intact and viable. Distilled white vinegar and cider vinegar sold in supermarkets are considered "dead" vinegars with none of the enzymes and other live factors that make raw, unpasteurized vinegars so valuable. Distilling removes the beneficial "mother" from the vinegar, thereby, destroying the powerful enzymes and life giving minerals such as potassium, phosphorus, natural organic sodium, magnesium, sulphur, iron copper, natural organic fluorine, silicon, trace minerals, pectin and other powerful nutrients. Also destroyed are natural malic and tartaric acids, which are important in fighting body toxins and inhibiting unfriendly bacteria growth (Bragg 1- 4).


Apple cider vinegar has shown to be an extremely valuable constituent in the body's biochemical operations and an essential building block in the construction of many complex substances in the body. Vinegar is low in calories and carbohydrates but does contain small amounts of calcium, phosphorus, iron and, of course, lots of potassium. A cup of ACV is 98.8% water, has 34 calories, a trace of protein, and no fat. (Moore p.viii) Acetic acid, the principal constituent in vinegar, plays an important role in the release of energy from fats and carbohydrates. It is of primary importance in the body's metabolism.

 

Reader Feedback: Just to give you an example of how potent Apple Cider Vinegar is, here is an email I found on a holistic health website.

3/23/2006: Jennifer from Wichita, KS writes, "OMG!!!! I am usually the one that never believes "this stuff will work", but I have tried everything to boost my energy levels, to diminish my mood swings, to curb my appetite, and to clear my skin,...and when I say everything, I mean it, until now. ACV is the cure ALL! There is nothing that it doesn't fix, from my large appetite to the weeds growing in my yard. I would take stock in this stuff! I have not experienced a a headache, (which I had daily for 12 years) in the last two weeks. I have lost 8 pounds in two weeks, My energy levels are through the roof, ( and with 4 kids it is important to keep those levels high:)) My skin and hair is fresher and silkier, without having to buy expensive shampoos and conditioners. My husband wont go near this stuff,...but I swear by it! I have my kids drinking it too, and I can tell a difference in their overall temperaments, their active levels are not extreme, they think clearer, nd for my youngest son who has Eczema, this is the only thing that has cleared him 100%, and we have put lots of money into soaps, lotions, and special diet needs for the last 3 years with him. Put a cup of ACV in his bath every night, towel him off and he is good to go, Before ACV , we would have to bathe him twice a day, once with soap, and the other just a water bath, and then lather him down with lotions and prescription creams. This has leveled him out and his skin is clear for the first time since birth. Now I don't have to bandage him up like a mummy when it gets really bad, because it simply is not there anymore!!!:) For ANYONE, with ANYTHING wrong with them,...this is the cure! I swear by ACV,...it has saved my family."
