When people talk about losing weight, they would always conclude that eating less will make you lose some pounds. Indeed, if you eat less, you will weight lesser. Because what we eat is who we are, literally. If you eat more pork, your body will probably be restored with new cells that are made with pork. Eat more veggies, and your body shall regenerate cells that are made up of vegetables. That is where nutrition comes in. And here are some facts that you may know (or not know yet) that will be helpful for you when it comes to losing weight.
NUTRITION FACT 1: FATTY FOODS SLOWS DOWN METABOLISM
If we want to lose weight, we must refrain from eating fatty foods. When fats are stored in your body, your body takes a long time before it can use these fatty foods into energy. Eating foods that are oily will surely turn your body into a slow metabolism machine. When your metabolism is slowed down, you’ll surely gain some more digits in your pounds. If you want to lose weight, stay away from fatty foods and go with nutritious and healthy ones.
NUTRITION FACT 2: WATER IS A NATURAL CLEANSER (NEXT TO FIBER)
When it comes to diet and body detoxification, we would always reach for foods (such as fruits and vegetables) that are rich in fiber. Of course, fiber helps flush down toxins and unwanted objects from the body, thus cleansing it from harmful radicals and boosts your body’s metabolism too. But don’t forget about our old friend water! Water is a natural cleanser that helps get rid of toxins from your body and also boosts your body’s metabolism too. So, if you are on your road to weight loss, don’t forget to add gallons of water to your diet list.
NUTRITION FACT 3: EATING FRUITS, VEGETABLES & LEAN MEAT AIDS IN NATURAL WEIGHT LOSS
No need to reach out for those pills and drinks that are advertised to let you cut off those excess fats from your body. Sticking with a diet plan that merely consists of healthy fruits, leafy vegetables and a little lean of fresh meat will do the trick.
FACT#4: PORK TAKES THREE DAYS TO BE FULLY DIGESTED
Maybe you’re not always told about this thing, but pork literally stays for at least three days in our tummies before it is fully digested by our system! So, if you are really into losing some pounds off your body, better to take little to no pork, understand?
NUTRITION FACT 5: A SLEEP CYCLE LASTS ABOUT 90 to 110 MINUTES
You must be wondering what sleeping has to do with losing weight. Well, come to think of this: have you ever woke up one morning and wanted to start your exercise routine? You have the alarm clock rang at 5 o’clock but you chose to snooze it. Afterward, your urge to exercise is gone. That is because the moment that you opened your eyes to rise from your sleep, the sleep cycle was done! But when you choose to take a short nap after that you have woke up, your body goes into a state of rest mode which must not be interrupted until the last 90th or 110th minute: or else, your body will think that it needs to rest again for the whole day which means there will be no lively exercise for your body – which also means another day wasted to lose some weight. Next time, when your eyes opened already, stand up and start your day right!
The next time you wanted to start losing weight for that perfect figure, don’t forget these facts! Hope this helped you!
