Healthy living tips
« on: Fri Mar 11, 2016 - 20:45:25 »
Hello everyone, I'm 20 years old male. I'll give you some tips that I've been taking into account for sometime and that made me lose all the fat.

Tip 1
Avoid sugar

Sugar is transformed almost inmediatly in energy once consumed. And it's the first source of energy that its depleted when you start doing exercise. So if you have a high amount of sugar in your diet, you won't burn much fat. Try to replace all kind of sweet drinks because they contain A LOT of sugar. Also don't get fooled by those commercial juices, they have sugar as well. If you want to have drink juice, make it yourself (and don't add sugar of course). Water is essential!

Tip 2
Walk everyday
We have legs. We were made to walk. Cars made us lazy. I walk 6.3 km each day 5 days a week. People call me crazy but my body thanks me for walking that distance. Try to walk at least 30 minutes each day.

Tip 3
Eat in small portions and several times during the day. Rather than having 3 bigs meals during the day it's better if you eat something between those. You won't eat much and your body won't make so much fat.

Tip 4

 We were taught that we have to eat all the food we have in our plates otherwise we would be "wasting it". It's better if you eat a little bit and ask yourself if you are still honestly hungry before having another piece of meat or pasta. Avoid gule

Tip 5
Drink tea! I find tea to be one of the best things we can make use to heal ourselves. After a meal make tea. I recommend spreng tea. It enhances your liver making it work better

Tip 6
Sleep. Don't push your body. I know that sometimes we like to be nocturnal animals. But it's better for our body if we have between 5-7 hours of sleep (Try to figure out how much time you need in order wake up "well" and stick to that).

Tip 7
Drink water. I already said this but I want to add something. Don't expect to be thirsty in order to drink water. Also, don't overdo it because you'll start peeing electrolytes (although you have to drink a lot before this happens). Your pee should be between transparent and transparent-yellow.

Tip 8
Cardio. Try to run or exercise your body its good for your heart. Beware if you are not very sporty, start your exercising without pushing yourself. Sprinting makes you lose more fat than jogging because your body prepares for sprinting again and you'll lose fat when you are not exercising! Search for HIIT on Google.

I know this is an old topic, but the OP wrote well though we need to put our computers and devices away a good hour before sleep. It's the blue light that can keep us awake unless using the helpful. f.lux download that 'pinks' our screens at sunset.

Keep fats down; use a oil sprayer and a teflon pan.
Reduce sugar intake, but always check sugar content in fruit 'low fat' yoghurts.

We eat the 'Mediterranean diet' since our local outdoor market sells wonderful fruit and veg, but also we buy directly from fishermen. We eat well my daughter and I, but I'm conscious we have to exercise so we take the dog and head for the beach whenever possible and enjoy a run.

It's all about sensible eating, really. Only without the guilt if we go overboard when during some weekends, family and friends meet for a long leisurely garden lunch. And then feeling replete, we go back inside and enjoy siesta.

Since someone re-opened this, I guess I'll add to it.  ::smile:: 1st point  Only stay away from BAD sugar. fruit, and honey (in moderation) is good. Also depending on what you wish to do, but weight training as been proven to be better than cardio. Same with carbs as it is with sugar - stay away from processed carbs, but good carbs in important.

White granulated sugar is very bad because we really don't know what chemicals are used in the processing. Raw cane sugar is good though in moderation. When In Jamaica I used to love chewing raw cane.

Another alert is just how much unhealthy fat is present in the all-too popular, ever so trendy Nutella. I have a recipe for real chocolate spread and it's so lick the knife clean good.

Can you please tell us your A1C and fasting blood glucose numbers? Also, are you on any medication to control your blood glucose levels? Thanks!

Well, this is interesting! I'm not diabetic, but just for your asking I checked my blood glucose levels. Using our GlucoMen LX monitor and its LX sensor strip, my BG measured 6.2 mmols. That is pretty good since my doctor has always said 7.5 mmols is tops and 4 mmols is its minimum.

I keep a blood glucose monitor for mere health reasons since my late mother was diabetic Type 2 and Peggy gets tested once a week, though she isn't a piggy for candy unlike her peers, thank the Good Lord! I might like my chocolate spread put on our homemade bread, but I'm pretty healthy thanks - so no worries okay? I appreciate your concern though and it was kind of you to ask.  ::smile::

ETA. No meds needed. I've enough natural insulin to stop an 'orse.

I'm not Diabetic, so I've never checked. I have also never done a complete fast, (partial one yes, but not a complete one.) I take herbs for just general health, but no meds.
