On average, the typical American eats 140 pounds of sugar per year, which equals 173 grams per day. That’s one tragic sugar addiction and why “Ritalin-infused” kids are running around with tons of energy, all day. Please keep in mind that sugar also triggers hunger cravings and wreaks havoc on ones blood sugar levels causing them to rise and cause damage to to the body and store fat cells in areas that you hate  – like your belly.

A Few Quick Tips

“I’ve got a date with Ben & Jerry tonight.”

It’s all something we’ve said, heard, or imagined at one point or another. What we’re really saying is, “I’m eating my feelings tonight, no holds barred.” Forget cheat days and treats, emotional eating can completely derail any diet, making you feel like all your health-conscious decisions have been wiped away.

What is emotional eating, after we push away all those candy wrappers and empty chip bags? Stress. When life seems unmanageable, we get stressed, feel crappy, eat crappy food, feel better, and then feel crappy again. It’s sort of human nature.

We all know stress isn’t going anywhere, and emotional eating is by no means a stop on the path to a fitter, healthier lifestyle. If you weren’t already aware, stress is a major contributor to spot-specific belly fat. Yuck! So, how we manage stress is essential to keeping away those crappy feelings and flabby bodies, by choosing either a “negative” or “positive” way to cope with that stress.

Here’s the deal: if you’re not actively searching, planning, and implementing said plan to positively manage your stress, it’s almost guaranteed that you will naturally choose a negative coping mechanism, like eating the entire pizza pie instead of just a slice. Again, it’s human nature. But don’t fear! Positive coping mechanisms are all around us!

Move Around!

Josh Bezoni - Move AroundRunning, jogging, or going for a walk gives you the opportunity to tune-out of life’s realities and just think about whatever comes to mind. If you’ve got a lot on your mind, even better! You won’t focus on how long you’ve been running for, or how much longer you have to go, and instead you’ll surprise yourself with how much activity you’re getting done. Additionally, you’re flooding your cerebellum with those feel good endorphins, which are not only great for your body, but also relieves stress!

If you’re just not up to exercising, another alternative would be to hop in your car (or on public transit if you’re not “vehically equipped”) and cruise till your mind is clear and ready to tackle life.

Pump up the jams!

Music is known to be a big factor in relieving stress, whether it’s listening to it or making it, it soothes the soul. You know what’s even better than listening to music? Listening to music AND running, jogging, walking, or driving! Bye-bye stress. Hello air-guitar solos at the next red light.

If you want to take away the power that emotional eating has over your healthy lifestyle (who doesn’t?!) you HAVE to consciously and actively seek out positive coping mechanisms. If you don’t, those unhealthy behaviors become habits that are hard to break, which quickly turns into more pounds added to the scale.

Step Off the Scale

Josh Bezoni - ScaleWomen and men alike often make the same mistake of visiting their scale on a daily basis. This is ineffective and detrimental for two reasons. Firstly, weight can vary tremendously from day to day and are not necessarily reflective of how healthy you are on any single day. Furthermore, such behavior can have a negatively impact your psyche and damage your will to improve your upon your lifestyle choices.

Setting a goal with regards to weight loss is a good thing. Watching the scale on a consistent and semi-regular basis is a fantastic way to gauge your progress. But do not weight yourself every single day!

The scale can be the cause of a roller coaster of emotions. A loss of a pound one day may result in jubilation while just a small, likely temporary, increase engenders dismay. Such dismay can cause someone to give up hope, when, in fact, they should be ecstatic the changes they have already implemented to their diet and lifestyle.

The primary reason that weight can fluctuate so heavily on a day-to-day basis has to do with the retention of water. Minor fluctuations are not necessarily indicative of the progress you are making. Another way to figure out if you are doing well is to reflect upon how you feel in an overall sense. Are your pants a little less tight or does your body feel learner? Is your energy level up?

These are the types of questions you should be asking yourself in lieu of stepping on the scale. Josh Bezoni recommends that you visit the scale no more than a single time per week. Also, many scales are imperfect so be certain to weigh yourself on the exact same scale over time. Additionally, keep in mind that weight cannot gauge whether you have shed fat and put on muscle. Therefore, it is important to listen to your physical body and not just the number on the scale’s dashboard.

5 Reasons to Drink Water

1.Drinking Water Maintains and balances Body Fluids

Your body is composition contains 60% of water. The functions of the bodily fluids that your body contains include digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of salvia, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of body temperatures.Josh Bezoni - WATER

2. Water Controls Calories.

For years, dieters have considered water as a weight loss strategy. Plot twist: Water doesn’t have any magical effect on weight loss. But please keep in mind substituting it for beverages that are higher in calories can certainly help.

3. Water Energizes Muscles 

Are you aware of why cells shrink? Cells that lack balance of fluids and electrolytes shrivel in size, this can result in fatigue. Drinking enough fluids while exercising is important. Thus helps increase the flow of energy and muscles activity.

4. Water Keeps the Skin Looking Good.

Your skin already absorbs plenty of water, and also functions as a protective barrier to prevent the loss of fluids. Over hydration will not defeat wrinkles and smile lines. Over hydration will however add an extra layer of strength to your skin.

 5. Your Kidneys Love Water

One of the biggest toxins for the human body is blood urea nitrogen, which is a watery waste that is able to go through the kidneys and ex excreted as urine.  When your body is receiving enough fluids, your urine will then flow freely and have a light and odorless free color. When your body is not getting enough fluids, urine concentration, color, and odor becomes enhanced because your kidneys trap extra fluid for bodily functions.

Perks of Being a Carbohydrate

  • Carbohydrates are energy-providing nutrients.

  • The human body receives 4 calories per 1 gram of carbohydrates consumed.  Carbohydrates are separated into sugar, fiber and starch. Carbohydrates are also separated into groups based on the how high and how quickly blood glucose levels change after eating them. Side-note: The higher the Glycemic Index, the higher the rise in blood sugar and the longer it takes to return to normal.

  • For a healthy diet, it is best to focus on foods with a low Glycemic Index (e.g., whole grains, oats, and whole wheat pasta).  Foods with a high Glycemic Index have been linked to elevated risks of heart disease and diabetes.

Well here’s thing, contrary to popular belief, we need carbs! Not just for energy… but also because our brains function off of carbohydrates.

“When we are carb-deprived, our body starts to burn fat to use for energy — the whole basis for the anti-carb Atkins diet — but our brain doesn’t run on fat. It requires some type of glucose or sugar to function.”

Cut out carbs huh? You cant, you need them! Well, unless your mantra is, vegetables all day every day! I am sure most of us are familiar with the main carb players: cereal, bread, and pasta, but also fruits, veggies, and even milk, candy, and sweets. The difference between whole foods and the packaged versions is “you get more of a nutritional bang with the whole versions”.

Banana21

Example: A banana has about 1/2 gram of fiber and 60 calories, compared to a cup of berries has about 8 grams of fiber and only 65 calories. Essentially, both have the same amount of carbs per serving, meaning either is better than say, a loaf of bread, which offers noting in terms of vitamins, minerals, or fiber.  bloodstream.” It’s this steady sugar drip (compared to a skyrocketing surge) that can make — or break — what you see on the scale. “It’s the quick spike, followed by a crash, that causes you to reach for more sugar for an instant energy boost,” says Shapiro.

assortment of berriesExample B: Think about what happens when you down a pack of sour straws: “They give you fast energy because they are simple carbs”.  Well Simple carbs are bad carbs. Simple carbs = higher insulin levels, which causes you to store and keep fat more easily.

The bottom line: I know we wish there was a blanket statement that could tell us whether carbs are here for good or bad, sadly enough it’s a bit more complicated than that.  The perks of being a carbohydrate, cant live with them… cant live without them!

Public Enemies

Don’t you think it is absolutely insane that we take natural things such as sugar cane, or vegetables like corn or beets (which are full of fiber and various vitamins and minerals in their natural state), and completely wipe away their healthy properties? What’s left of it now is a fast-digesting, highly addictive, nutritionally dead food that leads to malnutrition and sickness.imgres

Contrary to popular belief, these “stripped carbohydrates” like sugar, flour, enriched white flour, white flour, enriched bleached flour, enriched wheat flour, wheat flour, semolina flour, white rice, maltodextrin, glucose, fructose, malt syrup, corn starch, dextrose, and levulose are some of the world’s most dangerous obesity additives. But ironically enough, “fat-free” foods are loaded with the same ingredients!

The average American eats about 140pounds of sugar per year and about 173 grams per day. This is such a horrible but yet acceptable sugar addiction. It is imperative to know the sugar is an enabler and will continue to induce hunger and cravings. The thing is the sugar demons continue to wreak havoc on our bodies and blood sugar levels, causing them to rise, then fall. When you eat sugar you experience a surge of insulin releasing into your digestive track. Insulin holds on to sugar as tight as it can and stores it as energy. The bad part is, the excess sugar is then stored in your fat cells increasing fat in dreaded areas such as your belly. As a result to this dreadful process, your blood sugar levels drop, causing more hunger and cravings. Now, I am in no way trying to scare you away from sweets! But… numerous studies have shown that sugar causes inflammation—inflammation is the root of most disease. Sugar weakens the immune system and can cause depression. According to a study published in the British Journal of Dermatology, it also accelerates aging and causes wrinkles.

 

Lets take a look at exhibit A: 12-ounce soft drink has around 140 calories—all of which come from sugar—and the typical American has at least three of these drinks a day. This equates to about 4 pounds of fat stored in your belly, thighs, hips, face and arms. Yes, ingesting fructose-sweetened soft drinks increases belly fat in overweight subjects. There is also a direct relation  between an increase in sugary soft drink consumption and type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular risk factors. Are you terrified yet? You should be. I hope you are starting to see why these sugar-filled “Demons” are NOT the right choice, and that those extra pounds on your belly are there not only because of what you eat, but because of what you drink.
