Men – Do Not Make This a Losing Weight Problem!
There are a lot of people that do a lot of exercises and hard work, but they don’t see any results. Let’s talk about what’s going on.
1. Don’t Eat fast
Our brain needs time to know that our stomach is already full. If you eat without stopping, this signal get too late to your brain, and your organism will have more than the necessary. Next time, try this drill during your next meal. On every bite, chew, swallow, put down your fork, and take a sip of water. See how long it takes you to eat. Now, during subsequent meals, take just as long to eat, only without the drill.
2. Cut Out Calories little by little
If you slash too many calories from your diet, mainly protein calories, your body will conserve calories rather than burn them. Meanwhile, your body will break down in order to maintain your vital operations. Having less muscle means a slower metabolism and more body fat, because muscle is the key to your metabolism or how fast you burn calories.
In order To lose weight you need to cut calories, but be aware that you have to eat 1,800-2,000 calories each day. Do not cut protein during a diet. Meat is a good source of proteins, but if you are vegetarian you could obtain proteins from eggs (avoid egg yolks as they have too much cholesterol), vegetable stew, soy milk, cow milk, cheese, among others. If you tend to stay in the same place, you need about 75 grams of protein (like two chicken breasts) but if you’re lifting weights, aim for twice that much. If you’re doing aerobics pick a number in between.
3. Try to Sleep more
Sleep deprivation decreases the odds of shedding blubber and keeping it off. Researchers found that healthy men who sleep only 4 to 7 hours a night for 6 nights in a row had higher glucose and insulin levels in their blood. Having surplus insulin boosts body-fast storage and it is an incredible side effect for men tying to lose some weight.
Always keep in mind that you have to sleep at least 8 hours every night, establishing a regular bedtime.
4. Try not to eat Refined Food
The “refined” carbohydrates are usually the “simple” ones (sugars) as opposed to the “complex” ones (starches). In the complex camp are vegetables, whole-grains cereals, nuts and beans. Instead, breads, flours, cereals, pastries and so forth all are refined.
Refined carbohydrates have minimal fiber after processing. Food rich in fiber are important because help control blood glucose and insulin levels.
Start eating more complex carbohydrates and less simple ones that will help you lose weight.
5. Drink Plenty Of Water
You need to detoxify your body. If what you’re looking for is to lose weight, then water is a must. You need it to transport nutrients to your muscles. You need it to help digest food and keep your metabolism clicking along. And water keeps you from overheating during intense exercise on hot days.
Start drinking 64 ounces of water per day.
6. Share Experiences
Exercising alone won’t give you so much stimulation to keep you working out. A gym is a good alternative for you, it will give you the right level of motivation you need to keep going on and loosing weight could be a perfect experience to share.
