What should we do control our weight management?

What should we do control our weight management?

Low glycemic diet: The healthiest diet is a low glycemic diet. There is also evidence that adequate sleep, vitamin d and the proper probiotics contribute to maintaining normal weight. Exercise is important, and you can start slow; just take a walk every day. Keep stress low as stress hormones can contribute to being overweight. Drink enough water; sometimes the body confuses hunger with thirst.

How can some "natural" weight management pills control the reviews they get?

Ringers: I would be very skeptical of reviews you might see on line, those can come from anywhere, including the brother in law of the producer. Look for scientific reviews or double blinded randomized trails, if they don't exist these reviews are called testimonials with all the validity on an infomercial.

Is it better to have dessert in the morning than in the evening with regard to weight control?

Weight Control: Think of food as fuel. If you pair your food with your activity then rather than store calories in fat you will tend to burn calories for work. Simple sugars are quickly available to the body so if you eat them and relax or go to sleep your body will tend to store the extra calories until you have work without food. Eating most of your calories earlier in the day to use while active is best.

What to eat for dinner for weight control if I only eat one meal?

Not a good idea: Not many can lose weight eating just dinner - however good your selection. As your glycogen store gets depleted during the day, your body shifts to burn alternate fuel and process your intake differently. It is best to have the more substantial meal during the day, > 9 hours before your bedtime. Have a light meal at night to avoid going to bed with a full stomach and have snacks during the day.

Is green tea good helpful for weight control?

Possibly: Some studies have shown patients decrease weight with certain amount of green tea ingestion. This has not been approved by the fda for weight loss. If nothing else, it may be a good substitute drink for many people in place of soda. That alone will help someone lose weight. See my website for more info: www. Jhsurgery. Com.

No go.: 5-htp is a precursor to tryptophan the Amino Acid used to create serotonin. The national institute of health recommends not to use 5-htp until more is known. 5-htp might be unsafe.

Are high-carbohydrate diets good or bad for losing weight and weight control?

Are high-carbohydrate diets good or bad for losing weight and weight control?

Low Carb: The typical overweight person will lose weight faster on a low or no carb diet. Carbohydrates are typically broken down into sugars very fast, so they are not very good at keepin us feel full. These wide swings in blood sugar contribute to over eating and Insulin resistance. High protein diets tend to keep us feeling fuller and blood sugars more stable.

Are eating complex carbohydrates better for weight control than simple carbohydrates like rice?

Are eating complex carbohydrates better for weight control than simple carbohydrates like rice?

Carb Quandry: Some "complex" carbs (brown rice, whole wheat) are metabolized slowly and are better for weight management but ultimately if you consume more calories than you need you will gain weight. Reduce all carbs, especially simple carbs (white bread, rice or pasta). Eat frequent (6) small meals a day. Exercise vigorously for about 150 min a week, drink plenty (60 oz) of water and get 8 hours of good sleep.

Avoid Carbs/Sugars: Carbohydrate means all sugars, both simple & complex. Diabetes Mellitus is defined as elevated sugar, thus avoid all sugars, this includes most fruit. Instead go HFLC & study DietDoctor. Com, Gary Taubes, Peter Attia, Robert Lustig. The LowFat diet (promoted by Ancel Keys & George McGovern) is Not healthy.

Why do people say get a psychiatrist for weight control? Aren't psychologists trained to help change behavior?

Why do people say get a psychiatrist for weight control? Aren't psychologists trained to help change behavior?

Change behavior: Only you can change your behavior. Psychologists help you to understand issues that may govern your behavior and may provide clues as to how to deal with issues. If you are smart enough to go, not resist personal insights, and continue until you have been benefited you may then respond by changing your behaviors. Good luck.

No: I am not a fan of weight control medications. Many of them are dangerous. Patient's with liver disease should be especially cautious. Nothing beats calorie control and increased activity.

If I take Super Multi, Immune Detox, Super Immune 1 & Blood Sugar/Weight Control (3x's daily of each) considered to much?

If I take Super Multi, Immune Detox, Super Immune 1 & Blood Sugar/Weight Control (3x's daily of each) considered to much?

Uncertain: We don't know what your medical conditions are or why you are taking so many products. I don't know the contents of each of these. Don't know why you have to take a detoxifier. But frankly, I got a little blown away just looking at how long this list was. My guess is that most of these contain many different substances. You may be getting significant overlay of contents.

Will not put you: Your doctor will not put you on metaformin for weight loss, you must have elevated blood sugar or you hb a1 c is high, indicative of non control of blood sugar (your fasting blood sugar could be high normal). Ask your doctor will tell you.
