Aug 17, 2007
Enjoy food this summer and yet maintain your body weight. Here are some useful tips, but please do remember that not only knowledge can work for you,you have to ACT on them.

1. CUT THE SIMPLE CARBS.
It is ominous that today most of the people are "carb junkies." This is significantly applied on obese people because their body system fights with insulin sensitivity.
It is 100% true that carbohydrates are essential for our body, but if you are overweight than you should alter the ratio of high glycemic (simple carbs) to low glycemic (complex carbs).
The most important factor is that, you should reduce your sugar intake. If you maintain your ratio of complex carb to simple carbs, it will permit the body to regularize sugar levels. This will result in burning of fat and ultimately you will reduce your weight.

2. EAT SMALLER, MORE FREQUENT MEALS.
Eat five to six times a day. It will regulate your blood sugar level. Smaller and frequent eating habit will maintain your insulin balance and will nake you less hungry throughout the day and less tempted to snack on junk food.

3. CONSUME MORE FUNCTIONAL FATS.
Always prefer essential fatty acids, such as omega-3 and omega-6. Take both of these in the ratio of 1:1, which will allow you to calm down inflammation, regulate blood sugar level and balance your hormone level.
In time it will result in greater fat loss. Hence it is recommended to add flax oil and fish in your daily diet.
Do a Google search for flax oil. You may be suprised to see how important it is in your diet. Flax oil can be purchased in the natural health section of your local grocery store.

4. DRINK MORE WATER.
Water is a VITAL nutrient survival. Intake of abundant water will help you in following manner:
a)Curb your appetite & cravings for sweets.
b)Timely digestion of food.
c)Flushes your metabolic waste.
d)Water is fantastic for your skin.
So it is recommended to drink eight big glasses of water per day for weight loss.

5. INCREASE FIBER INTAKE.
Fiber also plays an important role in digestion process. Fiber will regulate your bowl movement and will assist in removing toxins and metabolic wastes. It will slower down digestion of carbohydrate, which maintains blood sugar level.

6. AVOID ALCOHOL AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.
Alcohol is high in calories. One single gram of alcohol contains 7 calories. If you want to lose weight, you must avoid alcohol as much as you can, because it obstructs the fat burning motor in your body.
If you must drink, cut your alcohol with diet soda or better yet, water. Remember that alcohol dehydrates, so drink plenty of water between drinks. If you place a lime in your water, it will not only give you the feeling of having a fancy drink but will also make your water taste better.

With these tips you can enjoy your summer and follow your diet plans to achieve your weight loss target.
