Eleven of the Most Nutrient Dense Foods on the Planet

Have you ever wondered if you are eating foods that are “feeding” your body the nutrients you need?  This article shares some of the most nutrient dense foods available.  One such food is egg yolk.  Egg yolk is so nutritious that it is often referred to as “nature’s multivitamin” and they contain a good quality of protein and healthy fat, which some studies have found are great for weight loss.  When dieting, calories are very important, so making sure you are eating foods that are high in nutrients is important.   If you are interested in learning what other foods are included in the list, click here.

Sitting Too Much Can Kill You

The American Cancer Society performed a survey to determine if sitting more than 6 hours a day could lead to early death.  The finding of this survey was that if someone sits more than 6 hours a day, it can raise their risk of early death by 19%.  Some of the top causes of death were cancer, coronary heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.  This article also states that even if you exercise for the recommended 30 minutes, if you sit for 6 hours a day, you are at higher risk of premature death.  If you want to read more about the other diseases this survey looked at and why someone who sits 6 or more hours a day is at higher risk of death  click here.

Number One Nut to Avoid While Dieting

How many times have you been told to eat nuts because they are a healthy snack and can help with weight loss?  Nuts are high in fats and protein and, therefore, many people who are dieting eat them so they feel full longer. Unfortunately, not all nuts are created equal.  Pistachios are about 160 calories per ounce while macadamia nuts are 200 calories and 20 grams of fat in just 10 nuts!  If you want to learn more about which nuts to incorporate into your weight loss plan read on.

Why Am I Not Losing Weight?

Have you been trying to lose weight unsuccessfully while others you know are having little to no problem?  There are many reasons why this could be happening, but one reason could be your medications.  An example of a medication that could be a culprit is Benadryl which can cause weight gain.  Click here to find out the other behavioral and medical reasons that could be halting your weight loss.

TIPS

Buddy Up!

Do you struggle daily to get in a good workout or to eat healthy?  Exercise is an important part of success in losing weight.  Another important part of weight loss is eating healthy and some people find that a buddy is all they need to motivate them to workout and to stay on track.  To find out why having a buddy by your side is helpful and read about a case where two women buddied up to work on improving their health. click here

Intermittent Fasting

Did you know that intermittent fasting (IF) can not only help you lose weight, but can also affect other mechanisms in the body? One version of intermittent fasting involves consuming a decreased number of calories in a small window of time during the day.  Based on this, most people would infer that IF would help with weight loss due to the decreased calories, but IF has also been shown to help in other areas.  For example, it has been shown to help with regulating blood sugar and helping heal the gut.  Read on if you are interested in finding out how IF can help improve your health and how it affects weight loss.
