Summer can feel like one looong semi-vacation—and it’s easy to fall into the trap of the “anything goes” vacay mindset for oh, three whole months. If you’ve indulged more often than you planned (hello, BBQ, ice cream, and many glasses of frosé!), you may be itching to get back on track, and recommit to clean eating this fall. Here are a few simple ways you can prepare to hit reset after Labor Day.
Fifteen days after my 39th birthday, a number flashed on my bathroom scale, the likes of which I hadn’t seen since a third trimester of pregnancy.
It confirmed what a family picture from that morning had told me already: I was the largest I’d ever been—obese by body fat standards—and that one go-to outfit I wore to try to hide the excess? I was only fooling myself.
Forget that I couldn’t climb stairs without feeling winded. Or that I’d become so self-conscious that I was turning down social invitations. Something had to give.
WEIGHT loss may seem like a simple matter of more calories burned than consumed, but certain chemicals found in everyday things – like breakfast cereal and even your carpet – could be to blame instead for obesity.
Research has found certain regularly-used chemicals, added to foods as preservatives and household materials, may disrupt human hormones and promote obesity.
A study published in the journal Natures Communications has found evidence that endocrine disruptors – the name for chemicals that interfere with the body’s hormones – can lead to weight gain.
A new headset that signals the brain to suppress the appetite could be the answer to the obesity epidemic, according to its manufacturers.
The cutting-edge device, called Modius, promises to speed up metabolism and burn up to 16 per cent of a wearer’s body fat – without changes in either diet or exercise.
After recent revelations that sweet elixirs honey, rice malt syrup, maple syrup and agave – widely considered as healthier alternatives to sugar – affect your body in exactly the same way, it would be fair to think it’s the same story with stevia.
Not exactly, says accredited practicing dietitian, Joel Feren.
“Stevia doesn’t have any kilojoules and it’s not going to affect our blood sugar control so absolutely it’s a much better option than sugar,” Feren explains.
Just when we thought we’d heard of every diet fad out there (ban carbs! skip sugar!), a new one recently popped up that genuinely took us by surprise.
In his new book, The Plant Paradox, Steven Gundry, M.D., a cardiologist and heart surgeon based in Southern California, claims that the worst food for weight loss is any food containing a plant protein called lectin. But here’s the thing about lectins: They’re found in foods you’ve always thought were good for weight loss. Think: whole grains, beans, nightshade vegetables (eggplant, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, squash), legumes, nuts, seeds, dairy, and any animal protein that’s not pasture-raised (eggs, meat, poultry).
Consuming too much sugar, we know, is linked to obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes. And people who are watching their weight may choose artificial sweeteners to fight back — products like aspartame, sucralose and steviocide (brand names: Equal, Splenda and Stevia, respectively).
But a new analysis of studies in The Canadian Medical Association Journal looked at the long-term heart health, weight, stroke incidence and blood pressure levels of more than 406,000 people who said they use artificial sweeteners in place of sugar and found that the effects weren’t on the positive side.
Are you tired of trying all of those diets just to fail every time?
Perhaps you’re even feeling a little disgusted with yourself and your inability to control your eating and your weight.
You feel like no matter what you try, it’s not going to work. You feel like a failure.
You may miss the energy you used to have when you weighed less. Do you find that you just want to sleep all day?
The worst part is if you don’t do something, it will only get worse. You may get diabetes, heart disease, and a host of other obesity related diseases.
Tragically, you could die way too soon. That is scary!
You can’t ignore this problem anymore. If you don’t solve it, it could cost you your life.
On top of the health issues your weight is causing, you may be frustrated by not being able to wear the clothes in your closet. You paid good money for those clothes and they are just sitting there.
You may also cringe at the idea of putting on a bathing suit and having people stare at you like a car accident. It probably hurts your feelings and makes you feel like less of a person.
