Weight Reducing and Better Sleep Tips
For better quality sleep you should prefer trying to lose a few pounds. Its all about your appetite; the more control you have on it the more control will be effective on your weight.Here are 10 all time tested strategies to help you sleep better;
Can water help you stay full? Well, drink several glasses of water, you get filled up and eat less. Water can help you lose weight by keeping you feeling full and helping to reduce your consumption of other high-calorie drinks (and foods). A recent study found that over the course of 12 weeks, dieters who drank water before meals three times per day lost about 5 pounds more than other dieters. Try drinking about two 8-ounce glasses before each meal.
Nuts help you with a plethora of health benefits. In addition to their other benefits, nuts (almonds, pistachios, walnuts, Brazil nuts, etc.) can help fend off hunger. They’re high in fiber and protein — both hunger fighters. Just make sure to limit your portions to about 1 ounce, because nuts are high in calories, too.
3. Natural Fibers
Natural fiber rich foods include 100 percent whole grains, fruits, vegetables, legumes) fill you up because they take up room in your stomach and slow digestion.
Once you are sufficiently tired you’re less likely to opt for rich food choices. Majority of the sleep-deprived people believe they “deserve” to eat something sugary and fatty. Several researches have established that lack of sleep leads to an increase in the hormone ghrelin (which tells the body to eat) and a decrease in the hormone leptin (which tells your body to stop eating).
Researches also reveal that a normal healthy person needs roughly 7.5 to 8.5 hours of sleep to get the benefits for diet and exercise. You should have a regular bedtime seven days per week. Do not forget checking your mattress and box spring and keep them replacing intermittently. Make sure your room temperature is comfortable. Get rid of the TV in the bedroom. And make your sleep environment quiet — aesthetically and in terms of noise.
5. Laugh with a Comedy
Journal “Appetite” states that watching a comedy can reduce your appetite. In the study, one group watched a 7.5-minute clip of an animated comedy with a plate of cookies in front of them, while the control group did not watch the film. The comedy group ate about one medium chocolate chip cookie less than the control group.
6. Consume More Vegetables
Veggies help you lose weight because they’re high in fiber and water , plus you get a lot of food for few calories. For instance, for the same 227 calories in one brownie you could eat 7.5 cups of broccoli.
All soups are water-based, they tend to make you feel less hungry without adding too many calories, so you eat less. Soup can help you lose weight when consumed prior to a meal. Soup prior to your meal could reduce your total consumption by as much as 100 calories.
8. Limit Alcohol
Alcohol impairs judgment and you end up eating more often. It also stimulates with intake of high-calorie, high-sodium snacks when they drink. Dieters may cause blood sugar levels to drop.
9. Reduce Stress
In stress human body releases cortisol, a hormone designed to help either fight or flee. Cortisol may trick your body and send a signal to your brain to refuel your body.When stressed, we long for comfort foods. Human beings can learn how much food they should eat to be at a healthy weight. However, the researchers found that diets high in fat impair the function of the hippocampus, which results in less ability to notice the “stop eating” cues.
