A lot of us want to lose weight and become healthier, sexier. But we also know how difficult it is for us to achieve this goal because there are always lots of delicious food to tempt us, plenty of excuses not to exercise, and other reasons that make losing weight more difficult than we could ever imagine.
So, the guys on AsapSCIENCE created a video, providing us with the scientific tips to losing weight. This is backed by science, so we could safely say the tips are sure to work!
The Benefits of Exercise
Science tells us that exercise is a great tool in losing weight because uses carbohydrates in the body even while you are doing those bench presses or running on a treadmill, anything. What’s even greater is that the body continues to work to your advantage even hours after you finished exercising!
Remember that exercise breaks down carbohydrates. With no carbohydrates available for the body to use as energy source, your brain signals the body to tap on fat storage (something you had wanted to get rid of, of course!).
Create a Healthy Diet Plan
Science also tells us to eat even while you are on a diet. Don’t skip meals because your brain will instruct you to eat high-calorie food to compensate for the lost calories. Moreover, breakfast helps regulate blood sugar and keep hormone levels in check; thus, you get added benefits aside from not feeling hungry.
It is a good idea to create a meal plan.
Protein and low fat dairy products are great additions to your meal plan. By ingesting protein, your body releases the PYY hormone which suppresses the hunger signals in the brain. According to AsapSCIENCE, a simple addition of 10% more protein to your diet can make you feel less hungry longer.
You’ll love what calcium can do to your body. Not only can it help you have strong bones, it can also bind to fats to create a soup-like substance which your body can’t absorb. This is then excreted out of the body.
You might also want to list the food you eat and begin learning how to count calories. This way, you can actually eat more food with low calories to help you lose weight without needing to starve yourself!
Plate size also plays a role in how much food you are going to eat. Go for smaller plates to trick your brain into thinking you have eaten a lot. This way, according to AsapSCIENCE, you can actually reduce food intake by 22% or more!
Get Enough Sleep
If you think sleep deprivation is helping you lose weight, think again. Stress and sleep deprivation can actually increase your appetite, making you want to eat more food. So, if you want to lose weight, you should also get enough sleep.
