Maintaining a healthy weight is key for optimal health. Many
health problems are correlated with being overweight or
obese. The first step to achieving an optimal weight is to
practice healthy lifestyle and eating habits.
The following are some lifestyle recommendations for achieving weight loss goals and maintaining a healthy weight
Diet is absolutely the first place to start. Firstly, the word “diet” should not be scary.
A healthy diet does not mean starvation or lack. Fad diets where eating is highly
restricted or where you need to precisely measure each serving of absolutely
everything on your plate is not realistic. A diet where the aim is a healthy body
weight should be one that can be maintained for a lifetime. Though one
may get quick results from diets that call for extreme calorie restriction, the
results do not tend to last long-term and hence we find the origins of the
term “yoyo dieting”.
The first step to a healthy diet is to eliminate or reduce everything “white”.
This means: white bread, white rice, white potatoes and white sugar.
Avoiding all sugar would be ideal. All of the foods mentioned above are
very high on the glycemic index. This means that they convert to sugar
quickly and cause us to gain weight more easily. Some healthier alternatives
to the “white” foods mentioned above are: whole grain breads, brown
rice, sweet potatoes and stevia (low glycemic natural alternative for sugar).
A healthy dinner plate should look something like this image.
(sweet potato or
brown rice are
1/4 lean protein
If you are craving something sweet, raspberries, strawberries
or blueberries are good low glycemic options. Fats have also
been given a bad reputation. Healthy fats are an important
part of one’s diet. Some of these include: avocados, olive oil,
coconut oil and omega 3’s found in fish. There is no reason
to starve oneself to lose weight. The key is making healthy
choices. While implementing a healthy diet, it is also important
to exercise regularly.
Exercise is beneficial for both body and mind. Exercise
promotes weight loss, improves circulation, lowers blood
pressure, improves heart function, moves lymph (helping
the body to detoxify), improves antibody production, reduces
depression and relieves stress. In terms of weight loss, one
should aim for a combination of cardiovascular activity
(walking, running, biking, swimming, cross country skiing,
etc.) as well as strength training. Cardiovascular exercise
burns calories throughout the activity and strength training
helps us to also burn calories while at rest. Strength training
exercises like lifting weights, squats, push-ups and sit-ups
build muscle and muscle requires fuel all day. The fuel for
muscles is calories. Therefore, by incorporating strength
training into an exercise regime, calorie burning is promoted
24 hours a day.
In addition to a proper diet and exercise, supplements
containing Sinetrol have been proven to increase the break
down of fats and to promote weight loss. Sinetrol is a synergistic
blend of the constituents naringin and hesperidin found in
Mediterranean citrus. Studies have shown the lipolytic (break
down of fat) activity of these bioactive polyphenols. Sinetrol
is enhanced by caffeine from guarana, which increases fat
burning activity. In a twelve-week pilot study of Sinetrol, which
involved 20 participants, a 22% reduction of body fat composition
was observed. A twelve-week follow up study involving 95
participants found the following: abdominal fat was reduced
by 9.73%, waist circumference was reduced by 5.15cm, hip
circumference was reduced by 5.17 cm and increased levels of
free fatty acids were observed (free fatty acids are the product
of the breakdown of fat cells). Participants were taking 450mg
of Sinetrol twice per day. All participants ate a normal diet and
exercised for 30min/week.
If you have already started your weight loss journey and have
hit a plateau, adding Sinetrol to your regimen may be what you
need to reboot the fat shedding. It is also a good option for
those who cannot seem to lose those last few pounds. If you
are just starting to make changes towards achieving a healthier
weight and want to see faster results, Sinetrol can kick start
your fat burning engine.
