Four ways to help your weight loss

Geraldton Guardian - - Healthy You -

Cut 200 calo­ries a day: That’s the ad­vice from Pub­lic Health Eng­land, which an­nounced re­cently Bri­tons should re­duce their calo­rie in­take to 1800 a day, rather than the pre­vi­ously rec­om­mended 2000. Sleep more: Ac­cord­ing to re­searchers from Cedars-Sinai Med­i­cal Cen­tre in the US, in­suf­fi­cient sleep can cause in­sulin re­sis­tance as much as a high-sugar diet. An­other study, from the Uni­ver­sity of Leeds, found reg­u­larly get­ting by on too lit­tle sleep can lead to an ex­tra 1.2in of fat around your waist and raise your risk of di­a­betes. Stress less: Stud­ies have also found stress, like lack of sleep, can lead to in­sulin re­sis­tance and weight gain around the mid-sec­tion. Ditch diet drinks: Not only are sugar-free or diet drinks not help­ful to weight loss, they can even lead to more weight gain, ac­cord­ing to sci­en­tists from Im­pe­rial Col­lege. “Just eat real, whole food in­stead,” Dr Lustig says.
