Counterintuitive Weight Loss Tips

Time for bathing suits...and a perfect time to realize that we are what we eat.  If we want to look great on the beach, we need to be eating truly great food...period.

There are many ridiculous diets, bad advice, and predators out there trying to make a fortune on other people's misfortune. At the end of it all, we come back to the simple fact: to look and feel good we need to eat the healthiest and most nutritious foods we can ~  fruits and veggies. 

One of the contributing editors of Women's Health mag. explained an interesting new way to live and eat to to lose weight and feel good ~ 5 Counterintuitive Weight Loss Tips. This is essentially it:

1. Lose Fat by eating GOOD FATS such as avocados, nuts, salmon.  By eating 30-35% of your daily caloric intake in this way, you should feel fuller...therefore eat less and shed some weight.

2. SLEEP! We need to be getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night. Evidently if you are only getting 6 hours of sleep per night the chances of being overweight increase by 23% and if you are only getting 5 hours of sleep this percentage increases to 50%.  This is because less sleep changes your hormonal activity, increasing food cravings. 

3. Eat Cheese.  I do not agree with this one although she did explain that if you are a cheese lover, eating a little leaves you feeling satisfied rather than eating none and wanting it so badly that when you have the chance to have a little ~ you end up over eating it (which is terrible!)

4. Drink Alcohol! We are wine lovers so you can imagine how shocked I was when after I ran one mile at a bootcamp one day ~ the instructor explained that we had just run off ONE glass on wine!!!!  This diet tip is based on the idea that drinking one glass of wine a day will make it 30% less likely you will be overweight and 70% less likely you will be obese.  Don't ask me why...Let's just take this one at face value.

and last but not least...

5. Be sexually active. Yes. I absolutely agree with this one. I am certain that good, fun, healthy sex keeps fat at bay and keeps us feeling great about ourselves.  

Again, and again...the key to feeling and looking great is a diet of mainly fruits and veggies. After this, it all naturally falls into place.
