Obesity Fighter http://obesityfighter.com Daily Inspiration For Weight Loss Sun, 17 May 2015 20:05:31 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.2 Food For Slimming Down http://obesityfighter.com/food-for-slimming-down/ http://obesityfighter.com/food-for-slimming-down/#comments Sun, 17 May 2015 20:05:31 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=977 These are the foods that will help you slim down because they are packed with energy, and low in fat.

  • Yogurt – contains probiotics and will help you become more regular
  • Nuts – not the honey roasted type, but the raw unprocessed and unsalted type
  • Fruits – all types of fruits are good for you
  • Whole grains – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whole_grain (contains more nutrients and your body spends more energy to process whole grains)
  • Vegetables – always a good source for varied vitamins and nutrition

For a fuller picture of what’s good food for slimming down, it is important to know the bad foods thus allowing you to make better choices when it comes to eating.

Bad foods that make you gain weight

  • Potato chips
  • Potatoes – high in carbs, low in varied vitamins
  • Sugar sweetened beverages, tea, coffee
  • Red meats – bacon, beef, cold cuts

Binge Eating 101 http://obesityfighter.com/binge-eating-101/ http://obesityfighter.com/binge-eating-101/#comments Fri, 15 May 2015 18:56:03 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=708 Many fat and overweight individuals suffer from binge eating. This is a fact, eating 3 salads for lunch is still considered binge eating.

The important thing is to find out the underlying reasons behind binge eating. Kristin Gerstley suffered from binge eating, and weighed as much as 190 pounds and lost nearly 60 pounds once she figured out that she had to stop binge eating.

The morning show interviews Marie Zmich on her struggles as a binge eater, and the many bad choices she makes when she’s binging on any type of food. Food literally overtakes these individuals’ mindsets and they eat more than they need.

A video of a binge eater in action. 2 cheeseburgers, 1 big mac, large fries, cup of noodles, liter of soy milk, 2 toasts with butter and jam in one sitting. This is really eating way too much.

Besides eating an unhealthy diet, binge eating can make you gain weight. Figure out why you over eat, and seek out help.

Junk Food, Binge Drinking, and Lack of Exercise http://obesityfighter.com/junk-food-binge-drinking-and-lack-of-exercise/ http://obesityfighter.com/junk-food-binge-drinking-and-lack-of-exercise/#comments Wed, 13 May 2015 18:06:01 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=192 Does the headline describe the lifestyle you grew up with? Then welcome to bulge generation that is contributing to record numbers being treated in hospitals for obesity. 18-30 year old’s don’t know how to live healthy anymore.

Change.

  1. Start by eating better. Cut out the fast food and junk food from your diet. Educate yourself on better nutrition.
  2. Stop drinking so much. The culture of Thirsty Thursdays, and pub crawling Fridays are getting out of hand.
  3. Pick up a real sport or activity. Gaming on your Xbox, or play WOW will only make your butt bigger.

There’s more to life than ice cream, beer / wine, and sitting in front of the television / computer.

Empty Calories – Sweets and Sugars http://obesityfighter.com/empty-calories-sweets-and-sugars/ http://obesityfighter.com/empty-calories-sweets-and-sugars/#comments Thu, 07 May 2015 15:23:56 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=482 Losing weight requires you to make lifestyle changes such as watching what you eat. The easiest bad foods to eliminate from your diet are sweets and sugars because they naturally add on weight without helping your feel fuller.

Calories are the basis of what makes your body functional, giving you energy to perform at your best. When you are consuming sweets and sugars (candy, soda, fruit juice, and cookies), these empty calories do not necessarily provide you with fuel leaving you hungry and craving for more. Now with excess calories in your system, your body will automatically convert the calories to fat.

This is exactly not what you want when on a diet or weight loss plan. Start to take notice of what you put into your body.

If a food / snack fits into the empty calories food group, do not eat it and swap in something else.

Keep in mind if you want to succeed in losing weight, you have to watch what you eat and how much you eat regardless of the situation.

Here are some easy reminder for dinning out and still lose weight:

  1. Order grilled fish or chicken with vegetables (skip the rice and  potatoes) and sauces on the side.
  2. When ordering a salad, always keep the dressing on the side.
  3. No dessert. Or order fresh fruit only.
  4. No alcohol or cocktails as that will add on many empty calories.

Keep these tips in mind when going out to a restaurant, and you will be well on your way of slimming down.

Fruit Juice is As Fattening as Beer http://obesityfighter.com/fruit-juice-is-as-fattening-as-beer/ http://obesityfighter.com/fruit-juice-is-as-fattening-as-beer/#comments Fri, 01 May 2015 12:21:45 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=479 Fruit juice may be advertised as healthy, but the number of calories are as much as beer. Next time you crave fruit juice, go for the whole fruit that is unprocessed with all the minerals and vitamins still intact. (You know fruit juice is not what it appears when manufacturers have to inject extra vitamins into the juices to make it more appealing.)

Replace fruit juice with water and whole fruits, then you are well on your way of losing weight.

Just put down the juice if you ever want to succeed at losing weight or attain success at dieting. Watch this YouTube video to better understand why bottled fruit juice is not a health food.
