Did you know….?

 

This week, instead of summarizing a few beneficial weight loss advices for you, we bring you some interesting facts that may also help you lose weight. They include dietary, fitness and nutrition bits and pieces. If these were common sense, there would not be so many obese people in the world. Let’s see them.

Did you know that…

  • only by substituting sugar with stevia in your coffee, you can lose 4-5 kilograms per year? (Can you imagine the effect of saying good-bye to all added sugar in your diet?)
  • if you have insulin resistency, it is very difficult to lose weight due to the constant high blood sugar level and you need a strict training on top of going on a diet?
  • if you develop your muscles, that actually will help you lose weight? The reason for this is that  muscles’ main fuel is composed of glucose and fat – muscles pull the glucose from your bloodstream and use the stored energy in your fat cells.
  • not only cardio exercise is recommended to help burn calories more quickly, but resistance training as well in order to build muscle mass and help you keep from losing muscle along with fat?
  • sugary drinks are the most fattening, as your brain doesn’t compensate for the calories taken in by liquid sugar by eating less of other foods, making you eat more calories overall?
  • low-intensity excercise can be equally efficient than high-intensity training?
  • if you lose weight too quickly, that will result in losing water and muscle mass instead of fat and will result in a yo-yo effect?
  • fat doesn’t make you fat, but neither do carbohydrates? Although fat contains more calories per gram than protein and carbs, but people who eat a diet that is high in fat (but low in carbs) actually end up eating fewer calories than people on low-fat, high-carb diets. It all depends on the rest of the stuff you are eating and your overall lifestyle.
  • alcohol contains a lot of calories, so it’s better not to drink alcohol while being on your diet?
  • if you would like to keep your new weight, you’d better change your lifestyle than do just a diet? (eat healthy, do exercise, sleep enough – constantly).
