PINCH MORE THAN AN INCH?
At this time of year we start to look forward to the spring and have good intentions to shed the few extra pounds that perhaps have crept on over the winter months! Recent research has shown that the size of your waistline can affect risk of developing diabetes, raised blood pressure and cholesterol levels. A waist measurement of more than 40 inches for men and 35 inches in women increases health risks. Even relatively modest weight loss can have a positive impact on your health. Unfortunately, there are no quick fixes. A calorie-controlled diet combined with regular exercise can make the desired effect on your waistline. Reduce your portion size. Food labels should be checked and lower fat options used when practical. Below are some tips to help you loose weight: Set yourself a realistic goal! Losing about 1-2 lb per week should be an initial goal. Drink plenty of water, 8-10 glasses a day. This prevents dehydration, flushes the body and ensures good bowel movement. Avoid salt as this can cause fluid retention. Enjoy the food you eat. It sounds silly I know, but you should always sit down and chew food thoroughly to aid proper digestion. Beware of hidden fats in processed foods and ready meals-always read the labels. Eat a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables. Wholefoods like brown bread, brown rice, porridge and weetabix are better as they contain more fibre and vitamins. Eat smaller amounts of dairy products choosing low-fat versions. Eat only small amounts of sugary foods and alcoholic drinks. Natural Remedies can help you to loose weight too. A new product , B-Slenda based on a natural fibre binds fat from food and therefore reduces your calorie intake. This improves your chances of loosing weight or keeping your weight under control.
