How to Stop Sabotaging Your Fitness Goals

Ugh.. you’re tired of being out of shape.

You stumble across that new popular fitness plan, and decided to commit.
This time it’s no sugar, low carbs, and an hour of exercise a day.

Everything goes great on day one. You have the veggie platter for lunch, chicken and veggies for dinner, and you nail your workout. You’re pumped.

A few days later, you begin craving sweets. You tell yourself, “just once won’t hurt.” Next, you crave something greasy. You skip your next workout, order fast food, and binge eat in front of the TV.
Soon, you begin feeling guilty.
You wonder how you’ll stick to your plan, and just like that, you’re back into your old habits.

Sound familiar?

This is one of the four most common ways that people sabotage their fitness goals. Learn to tackle this challenge, as well as three others, to set yourself up for success.

1. Expecting perfection

That one sweet? Not so bad.
The fast food binge? Not great, but manageable.
Letting a few setbacks ruin your fitness plans? Definitely bad.

Don’t expect perfection in following your new diet or workout plan.

Instead, we suggest that you look for progress and allow yourself one cheat meal a week while you learn to create new habits.

2. Expecting too much too soon

Everywhere you turn, fitness ads claim instant success. Results now. One-week weight loss.

In reality, these promises are too good to be true.
If you are unhappy with your current fitness, it likely results from years of bad habits. How can you expect to turn it around quickly?

Start your fitness journey with the right expectations.
There is no instant gratification.
Fitness is a process that takes time, goal setting, and commitment.

3. Focusing on that single big goal

Goals are a tricky thing.
Setting fitness goals is great, but focusing on a single big goal can be paralyzing.

To avoid being paralyzed by your goal, break it down into smaller goals.

Create attainable goals for each day, week, and month.
Then focus on one goal at a time, and create a plan for attaining the goal.
What will your actions be? How often will you take these actions? How will you measure your goal?
When you accomplish a single smaller goal, then set your sights on the next one.

For example, if my overall goal is to lose 30 pounds, my first goal might be to lose one pound a week.
This is a trackable, attainable goal.
To achieve that I plan on working out 3 days a week. After sticking with this plan for two months I might increase my commitment by following the nutrition plan and adding a 4th workout each week.

4. Fixating on what you can’t have

When you begin a new diet, it is easy to focus on the things you can’t have: cookies, chocolate, fast food, and sugar.
The problem is this often makes you want them even more. To counteract this, quit focusing on what you can’t have, and start focusing on what you can have.

At first, you might fell limited by all of your dietary restrictions. However, while searching for tasty, healthy foods, you will soon realize that the list is actually endless. Options include chia seeds, flax seeds, quinoa, amaranth, millet, and more.
There are so many possibilities!

Healthy eating can taste great, and isn’t as hard as it seems.
Just experiment with healthy recipes to find the foods and spices that work for you.
Combine healthy grains, spices, meats, fruits, and veggies for tasty meals that don’t take hours to make and give you great nutritious meals.

How to achieve your fitness goals

OK, enough about sabotaging yourself.

Just like that last point, we don’t want to focus on what not to do. We want to focus on what you should be doing. To wrap things up, here are four ways to think about your fitness goals that improve your chances of success:

  • Work on making progress. There is no perfection; only progress (and the occasional setback!).
  • Have patience. Change takes time. Fitness is a lifestyle, which takes a lifetime to achieve and maintain.
  • Take small steps. Set small achievable goals and tackle them one at a time
  • Focus on the cans. Spend your time and effort on what you can have, and what you can do.

Lastly, enjoy the ride and look at this as a new adventure!

How Hydration Plays An Important Role in Weight Loss?

How often do you remember to include hydration as an integral part of your weight loss diet regimen?

This is very common in the individuals to neglect the aspect of hydration when preparing a diet routine.

You never forget to calculate how many calories, carbohydrates or fats you are consuming every day. Then why forget to be meticulous about the quantity of water to be consumed each day?

Importance Of Hydration While Dieting

Whether you are on a weight loss diet, hydration is the most crucial component of it. But unfortunately, many of you choose to remain ignorant about this fact.

Hydration is so important for your body that a mere 2% dip decrease of water in your body can cause your brain to shrink. It can also decrease your concentration by affecting your neuromuscular coordination, resulting in a slow muscular response, cramps in the abdomen and reduce of strength.

Hydration In Weight Loss Diets

Weight loss diets can be really demanding and taxing because in such diets you are always in a continuous state of a fight with your own appetite. You may have heard that low-calorie diet is enough for you to cast off those extra pounds of your body.

But those diets hardly work in the absence of proper hydration. Until and unless you keep your body hydrated, the weight-loss diets would not be effective enough. This way you lose faith on the diets and those extra fats remain unattended.

Drinking water before every meal in a day would help you bring down your appetite and also the consumption of calories. Water keeps you filled, reducing your cravings and accelerates the rate of metabolism in your body. This fact has been validated by a study in 2003 published by The Journal Of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.

Hydration In The Bodybuilding Diets

It is truly important to drink water if you are training yourself in the gym to build muscles and do weight-training. Adequate hydration in your bodybuilding diets enables the flexibility of your muscles.

Since the muscular responses of your body are controlled by the neuromuscular co-ordination, so a good quantity of water in your body will balance itself with the electrolytes and enhance the body’s muscle control and strength.

Hydration also increases the toning of your muscles and prevents cramps, contractions, and sagging of the skin.

Wrapping Up

Well, in terms of diet, hydration has proven to be essential as it nurtures the body with vitamins, minerals and keeps the body weight in control by lowering down the calorie intake. Hydration also helps to wash out the toxins and harmful compounds from your body through excess water and ensures a healthy digestive system as well.

So do not wait to feel thirsty and then get up for a glass of water. Place the water bottle in front of you and keep drinking water within hours.

Stay hydrated. Stay healthy!

Scary Weight Loss Diets You Should Never Try!

Could you have ever imagined that weight loss diet could scare the shit out of people?

Who said movies like Insidious and The Exorcist can only be the scariest things ever? Who said that a power cut in a guest house, where you are staying alone in the night, could scare you the most?

Whatever women do these days to lose weight can be scary. There are some weight loss diets that can be very frightening. Please have a look below.

Weight Loss Diets That Would Scare The Shit Out Of You

The Cigarette Diet

The ones who are already smokers will get delighted to read this. Apart from acquiring lung cancer, cigarettes can at least help us in some way.

The nicotine helps to lose weight. Yes, you are reading right. According to some trainers and modelling experts, water and cigarettes give rise to the nicotine diet which gives you the perfect sexy figure. Obviously, you have to choose between getting a perfect figure and preventing cancer. It is totally your call.

The Last Chance Diet

In the 1970s, Roger Linn introduced the Last Chance diet. He made a protein drink of 400 calories. Well, it’s very evident that 400 calories per day would eventually make a person shrink to a skeleton.

The scariest part is the source of that protein. The protein was extracted from the leftover horns, hides, tendons, animal bones, etc. of a slaughterhouse. Yuck! It is unfathomable that how anyone can even take a gulp of that protein drink after getting knowledge of its manufacturing ingredients.

The Tongue Patch Diet

This is another scary weight loss diet you could have ever thought of. In this diet plan, a plastic mesh would be attached on the surface of your tongue so that you cannot consume any solid food. It pains too much if you try eating with that mesh on.

The only form of consumption throughout the diet plan would be a liquid of 800 calories per day. By adopting this tongue patch diet for a month, a person can lose up to thirty pounds. A California-based cosmetic surgeon introduced this tongue patch diet procedure in the USA and it costs a patient $2000.

The HCG Diet

The HCG diet includes an intake of 500 calories per day throughout the diet regimen. That is not the scary part. It gets scary when you need to get injected with a drug termed as Human Chorionic Gonadotropin which is a fertility drug.

The HCG drug is prepared from extractions of a pregnant woman’s urine. Just imagine that when this thing sounds so yuck, how on earth people choose to take these injections to lose weight.

The HCG diet was popular in the 1950s

All the weight loss diets mentioned above are not merely diets, but those are starvation campaigns. If you want to stay fit and healthy, eat right and work out religiously. That’s the key.

Food swaps to a healthy diet!

Going on a diet to lose weight or to get healthy doesn’t automatically mean cutting down on food or giving up something for life. Most of the time, it all boils down to making a healthy choice.

Here are some food swaps that you can do to reach your health goals:

  • Swap your sugary, calorie-laden soda for water or other sugar-free options

A 12-ounce can of Coke shockingly has around 9 ½ teaspoons of sugar, which in Coke’s list of ingredients, is hiding behind the name high fructose corn syrup.
This is way above what the American Heart Association has recommended, which is no more than 6 teaspoons a day for women and up to 9 teaspoons for men. So drop the coke and reach for plain water and see the pounds drop.
A study has shown that people who switched to water were twice as likely to lose 5% or more of their body weight.
There are also other health benefits to drinking water.
But if you’re one of those who don’t like the bland taste of water, go for soda water and add a bit of flavour with a little cranberry juice or a slice of lemon.

  • Swap your regular butter for ghee, nut butter and other spreads

Butter might have a bad reputation among some groups for being a health villain, an unhealthy ingredient that should be avoided at all cost.
However, it’s actually margarine, which is chockfull of trans fat, that should be avoided. While butter might have saturated fat, full fat butter that’s produced from grass-fed cows has vital nutrients like Vitamin K12 and butyric acid, which helps keep our colon healthy. The trick here now is choosing an organic butter or its healthier alternatives, like ghee.

  • Bake better brownies with black beans

Make your pastries or baked goods healthier by adding black beans. Black beans can minimize the blood sugar spikes people experience when eating sweets.
Using black beans in brownies, for instance, won’t affect the chocolate taste. But it will add much needed protein and fiber.

  • Replace tortillas with spinach

Put a paleo spin to your favorite fajitas recipe by ditching the tortillas and using spinach instead. You still get to enjoy the meats, spices, peppers and onions that make fajitas great, but you won’t miss the carbohydrates and calories the tortillas bring.
On a related note, this swap can also be used on another Mexican favorite – the burrito.

  • Swap pasta for vegetable noodles

It’s hard to imagine living in a world without pasta. Luckily, you don’t need to give it up as you can make noodles out of almost any vegetable and even some root crops with the help of a good vegetable spiral cutter.
Once you have one, you can start making your own squash or zucchini spaghetti.
There are a wide range of sauces that you can do, like sesame ginger sauce or ginger almond butter sauce for your veggie pasta.
You can even go all out and make your own pesto bacon sauce.

To achieve a healthy diet is by making healthy food choices.
This is not just about choosing fresh produce over frozen ones, but also the kind of produce you pick.

Keeping healthy or losing weight is not always easy.
But with a little know-how, some creativity and these healthy food hacks, you can be on your way to a healthier and happier life.

Want to try the Paleo Diet?

The paleo diet has been steadily gaining ground among health conscious individuals, with some believing that it’s one of the best weight loss program around.
Contrary to what people think, this diet plan is actually quite easy to understand.

In the paleo diet, the focus is essentially on eating food that our Paleolithic ancestors did – vegetables, fruits, raw nuts and seeds, meats and animal products like eggs and honey.

Dairy, grains and processed food are eschewed as these are relatively recent inventions. While some might find it hard to imagine what dishes can be made when following the paleo diet, there’s actually a dizzyingly wide array of paleo recipes that you can do.

 

In truth, some might find the idea of following a weight loss program daunting, especially if it involves a total lifestyle change.

You can look for simple and easy ways to incorporate the idea of the paleo diet in your life instead.

Here are some paleo food hacks for a healthy diet that you can try:

  • Say sayonara to sugar

Refined sugar is undeniably bad for you, but it doesn’t mean we have to trudge into this life without sweets.

Use raw honey or pure maple syrup instead. These unrefined sugars are a healthier choice and something that would make you question why you ever needed those white, granulated, over-processed ones.

  • Switch flours

You can still have your cake and eat it too with the paleo diet, as long as you switch flours.

Switch your all-purpose flour with nut flour and start baking. There’s really no need to worry about not having your favourite pancake for breakfast with this diet.

  • Take advantage of the seasons

With the paleo diet’s focus on earth-based products, it’s safe to assume that anything you find in the produce section of your supermarket is OK.

While that’s essentially true, the nearest farmer’s market might provide a lot more options.
After all, the produce there are not only fresh and in season, it’s also more affordable.

You can even buy in bulk and freeze it for later. This is especially true for berries as you can simply wash them, pat dry, place on a cookie sheet and freeze. Transfer the berries into a freezer bag and it will keep for several days to weeks.

  • Keep healthy snacks on hand

Most of the time, our unhealthy food choices stem from the lack of time and limited options. If your pantry is full of processed food and salty chips, odds are that’s what you would be picking for a snack.

So keep several paleo-friendly snacks in your pantry and fridge instead. The aforementioned frozen berries are a good option.

You can also make several paleo burritos and freeze them for such moments. There are also some good, easy to make, low-carb roll-up recipes out there.
Or simply have some fresh fruits and easy to snack on veggies like carrots on hand.

  • Make your own chips

It’s easy to see why people love their potato chips. Its’ salty, delicious crunch is undeniably addicting.
But it also gives you zero nutrients.

So instead of constantly resisting the lure of the potato chip, why not make your own kale chip? Like the beloved potato chip, kale chips can also be little pieces of salty, crunchy heaven. Plus it’s nutritious.
Making your own kale chips is also easy to do.

  • Switch up your salads

Salads don’t have to be the same boring romaine, tomatoes and olive oil vinaigrette combination.

Think out of the box and make salads more interesting and fun to eat again by subbing the usual ingredients with something new.
For instance, go beyond lettuce and try a combination of baby kale, arugula and spinach leaves. Basil, endive and radicchio are also interesting options.

Give the tomatoes a rest and use avocados, roasted peppers, grated carrots, citrus fruits or artichoke hearts for garnish instead. Amp up the flavour of your salads by using a fresh lemon dressing or a tahini dressing.

Make it even healthier by opting for avocado or walnut oil.

Have fun trying!

 

What Your Food Cravings Are Saying!

We have all experienced  the sudden food cravings.
Times where we are willing to drive a few miles just to eat some dark chocolate or maybe a burger.

As a matter of fact, there is a significant difference between hunger and cravings. This is because hunger is associated with stomach, while craving, on the other hand, is controlled by the brain. This is perhaps why food cravings might differ from person to person.

Why Knowing Your Food Craving is Important?

It is important to understand your food cravings to know your body better. Food cravings often signal what is missing in our diet. And thus, we crave for different food at different times.

You tend to have food cravings due to stress, boredom, loneliness, low blood sugar levels, dopamine levels and low serotonin levels, and this indicates a lot.

Knowing what your food cravings are trying to tell you can protect you from eating unhealthily.

Here is the complete list of the most common food cravings, the nutrients that are lacking in your diet and what other food you can take instead:

  • Sugar

Chromium is the nutrient responsible for sugar cravings. Eating processed sugar and carbohydrates can lead to a rapid rise in blood sugar levels. As a result, the body releases insulin in order to deal with this.

Now, when you have balanced low blood sugar levels, resulting insulin increase in your body is the reason you feel like grabbing something sweet.
However, as a healthier option, you can eat whole grains, beans, nuts, seeds, greens, and fruits.

  • Salt

Chloride deficiency and the fluctuations in the stress hormone levels are the main reasons why you crave for salty dishes.
Different healthy foods like celery, leafy greens and tomato can be taken to end craving. Meditation and breathing exercises are helpful as well.

  • Chocolate

80% of people lack magnesium in their diet.
The never-ending urge of eating chocolates is due to lack of magnesium in your diet. Eating grains, nuts, seeds beans, greens, fruit, are a good way to counter magnesium problems.

  • Fried food

Carbon deficiency makes you crave for fried food.
Fresh fruits can be consumed to come over this craving.

  • Cheese

Essential fatty acids deficiency and calcium deficiency is the reason behind your urge to eat cheesy food.
Flax oil, chia seeds, walnuts, Sesame seeds, legumes, mustard and turnip greens are best to break through and stay healthy.

  • Coffee or Tea

You might crave for a coffee or a tea due to sulfur and phosphorus deficiency. Cranberries, carob powder, garlic, onion, pumpkin seeds, Brazil nuts, lentil can be consumed to overcome this.

  • Chicken and meat

Your body lacks iron and zinc when your body craves for meat.
Beans, prunes, seaweed, cherries can be used to get over this craving.

  • Carbohydrates

When you feel the need to take carbs, it is possibly an indication that your body levels are running low on nitrogen.

To counter this, try to eat fish, nuts, and beans.

All in all, its always the best to eat fresh and balanced foods as best as you can!

5 Foods That Are Making You Fat Unknowingly

5 Foods That Are Making You Fat Unknowingly

Are you eating as healthy as you think you are? Are you consuming enough fruits, vegetables, and proteins to stay far ahead of the nutrition curve?

Or, are your healthy food choices actually making you gain weight and going against your entire diet regimen? Well, chances are high that you are consuming wrong kinds of foods unknowingly.

Not anymore! Here is a quick list of a few foods that you think are healthy while they are not!

  • Packed Food/Canned Vegetables

Packed foods might look healthy at first but they are often loaded with an excess of sodium and are deprived of the essential nutrients. Consuming these foods might hinder your health. This is simply because you are unknowingly consuming a lot of sugar, sodium and other flavoring agents that would not only distract you from good nutrition but can also prove harmful to your health.

  • Refined Grains

Refined grains include the likes of white bread, pasta, rice and crackers and are not healthy at all. This is perhaps because the flour used for preparing these food items is known to have a high glycemic index.

Consumption of such types of food triggers the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream at a faster rate thus increasing the sugar levels. Hence, one of the safe practices is to check the labels properly when buying your food. Further, you should always go for the whole grain bread instead of the refined ones.

  • Trans Fats

Trans-fats are generally found in snacks, baked and fried foods in the form of partially hydrogenated oils. These are very easy to be used, inexpensive and last for a very long time. However, the bad news is that these types of foods raise the bad cholesterol (also called as low-density cholesterols) levels in your body. This increases the risk of heart diseases and strokes.

  • Sugary Foods

Foods, such as sweets and chocolates enhance build-up of sugar inside your body. Sugar in the digestive tract is broken down into glucose and fructose. High consumption of fructose causes the liver to turn fatty giving rise to insulin resistance and other metabolic syndromes and diabetes. So, avoid consuming foods that are high in sugar.

Further, try to buy foods from trustworthy companies that are certified for organic and high-quality ingredients and that have a minimum or no HFCS-90, the original high fructose corn syrup.

  • Bis-phenol

Foods that are in contact with the plastic component disrupt the endocrine system of the body along with pineal and the reproductive glands. If you too are consuming food that is exposed to the plastic component, the possibility is high you are at a risk of obesity and developing cancer.

So, don’t let these hidden food mines hinder your fat loss journey, instead eliminate them or substitute them with powerful foods that may help you in cutting off the calories from the body.

Everything That You Need To Know About Cellulite

Have you ever stood in front of the harsh light in a swimsuit and wondered if those stubborn lumps and bumps could get smoother by any chance?

Yup, we have been there and have had the exact same feelings.

But the good news is that there are a plenty of other ways through which you can get rid of cellulite, apart from eating fresh fruits and vegetables.

But, before we delve deeper, let’s first understand what cellulite is.

What cellulite is?

Understand cellulite as irregular deposits of fat around your buttocks, hips, and thighs. They get their lumpy appearance due to the fibrous tissues which attach themselves to the fat cells and muscle layer.

Does every woman have cellulite?

Yes, you are not alone.

Almost every woman gets that, but a slower rate of metabolism can make you more prone to have cellulite. Further, cellulite is more common in women when compared to men because estrogen plays a vital role here.

Where can I get my cellulite treated?

Cellulite is more of a cosmetic problem. Thus, physicians dealing with aesthetic looks treat them. Dermatologists and plastic surgeons can offer cellulite treatments as well.

Here are a few ways through which you can get rid of cellulite:

  • Drink lots of water

The best method to treat your cellulite is by consuming enough water. It has been found that staying hydrated can help you control cellulite to a great extent.

  • Wraps

There are various herbal wraps available in the market which can help you in enhancing the overall look of your skin temporarily.

  • Massage

There are various machines that massage the affected areas. The machines work by rolling cylinders to gather a part of your skin and massage it inside the chamber.


Such machines tend to redistribute the fat instead of solving the problem permanently. This is why you might need to take periodical treatments to keep cellulite away or else it will return.

  • Laser or radiofrequency therapy

There are various light therapy devices that work by combining massage benefits with light therapy and help in reducing the appearance of cellulite for the time being.

TriActive is one such treatment that combines the suction benefits with low-level laser treatment. However, as a matter of fact, such programs are costly.

  • Exercise

Yes, certain exercises which aim to reduce fat can help you in reducing the appearance of cellulite.

  • Sunscreen

Harmful UV rays from the sun can damage your skin which would make cellulite more noticeable. Thus, don’t forget to apply some SPF before you step out in your swimsuit.

These were a few of the methods through which you can control the appearance of cellulite to an extent. However, fret not, even if you are not able to get rid of cellulite. It is important to be comfortable with yourself, and accept yourself the way you are, right?
