A Few Weight Loss Tips for Summer

It's summertime, and we are all looking to lose a little weight and look better in our shorts, tops and bathing suits. Here are a 2 tips:

1) Eat a big breakfast and big lunch, and nothing else. This method is much more productive for weight loss than eating 6 small meals a day.

2) Eating two meals a day produced greater decreases in liver fat content, while there was a bigger increase of insulin sensitivity with the six-meal diet.

Research shows that if you chow down a big breakfast between 6 and 10am, and a big lunch between noon and 4, you're good for the summer bikini.

And here are a few more tips on being healthy and living a longer life. Though it seems like this list has been brought to you by the Institute of “DUH,” if you want to keep yourself from an early grave, you should probably get on board with these 4 lifestyle changes:

  • ~Eat a Mediterranean diet (lean meats and fish, vegetables, fruits, beans, whole grains, nuts, olives, and olive oil along with some cheese, yogurt, eggs, and red wine)
     
  • ~Exercise
     
  • ~Maintain a normal weight
     
  • ~Stop smoking

These activities have been known to lower heart disease by 80% over an eight-year period. Source:  (UPI)

In a related story. Maybe we can learn something from the people of Norway, because apparently it is the land of the lean and fit.  Only 5.8 percent of Norwegian women are obese – compared to 35.3 percent of American women. And Norway has one of the lowest diabetes rates of any Western country – just 3.6 percent. 

Here’s why:

  • People eat locally grown or caught food
  • Portion sizes are smaller in restaurants
  • They walk, bike, or jog … everywhere (Source: WomensHealth)
