The human body is a complex machine. It requires a good amount of sleep to regulate itself and to get all the hormones functioning at optimal levels.
Lack of sleep triggers hormones leptin, ghrelin and cortisol in your body to crave for fatty foods and carbohydrates. These hormones control your appetite directly and a lack of sleep puts them into high gear where you are feeling more hungry than necessary.
Hypothetically, the major reason that parents of new born babies experience a rapid weight gain is that their adult sleeping patterns are constantly disrupted by a crying baby.
Then how do you explain celebrity moms that lose weight quickly after give birth? That would be an idiotic question because they have the time and money to work with personal trainers, chefs who cater to their every dietary need, and full nannies that tend to the baby 24/7. A celebrity mom’s sleep is never interrupted unless they allow themselves to be interrupted at night by the baby.
What we all remember best is Steven Seagal as the action star breaking tough guys’ arms and legs every chance he gets.
Weight gain is not one of the movie memories. However, as Steven Seagal has gotten older, his weight has gradually increased.
Remember that as we age, our metabolisms slow down. Plus, we become less active the older we get. To control weight gain, we have to watch what we eat.
Holly Madison looks good because she eats like a champion.
- Chicken caesar salads
- Hamburger and fries
- Sushi rolls, spicy tuna, shrimp tempura rolls
We have to admire Holly Madison for a great job at portion control that helps her maintain her figure.
Carrie Underwood was never a big girl when she first graced the television screen as an American Idol contestant.
She has always been a vegetarian from her love for animals.
Dropping the few pounds to get to a smaller size involves a big exercise ball, and being extremely knowledgeable of what she eats. She writes down every little detail of meals to eat healthy and lose weight.
You may think that all vegetarians have it easy when it comes to weight loss and weight maintenance, but you still have to choose the right dressings, and watch meal portions like a hawk.
It is possible to lose weight by blogging about it. In the few months that I have been writing obesity fighter articles, I have dropped a total of 18 lbs as if the fat melts away by itself.
As I am writing, I am constantly reinforced about good and bad dieting habits. I have made changes to my eating habits (eliminating all sugar where possible basically stopped drinking soda, or juice – also less processed foods), and started to work out by constantly moving whether it is doing squats or lunges every chance I get.
Humans used to move around a lot more when we were evolving, but then television and computers came along. Learn to adjust, you can still enjoy everything of what both technologies offer by refusing to remain stationary while watching TV or using the computer. Take short breaks to move around and bring the heart rate up.
And yes, blogging about weight loss does help you lose weight because you know exactly what works and what doesn’t. Weight loss is all about retraining your brain to do and repeat what works. Weight loss is not rocket science.
