Create a Smaller Appetite
Keeping Your Carb Low Glycemic May Lead to Less Food
Researchers say they think they now understand why low glycemic carbohydrate diets can be more effective than others: restricting high glycemic carbohydrates appears to also restrict overall appetites. In a study of 10 people whose eating habits were monitored very closely during a three week hospital stay, scientists discovered that, when the patients ate fewer high glycemic carbohydrates they also tended to want less food overall.
Here's The Overview:
- The small study involved just 10 volunteers who were confined to hospital for three weeks so that every calorie they consumed and expended could be measured.
- It revealed that high glycemic carbohydrates eaten by the volunteers - potatoes, bread and cakes - stimulated their appetite so they ate more of other foods as well.
- When the carbs were restricted, consumption of other foods fell as well, even though the volunteers were free to eat anything else they wanted.
- Over the three weeks of the study the average daily consumption fell by a third from 3111 calories a day to 2164 calories, when access to potatoes, bread and cakes was restricted.
- The volunteers, who were obese and had diabetes, lost 4.2 pounds on average.
- "Participants went from an excessive caloric intake to a normal caloric intake for their height and weight when we reduced their high glycemic carbohydrates.
- Overall consumption fell by 1000 calories a day, even though the participants were offered as much protein and fatty foods as they could eat.
- The researchers weighed all food, monitored exercise and measured calorie energy intake, expenditure and body water composition and tested blood sugar, cholesterol and hormone levels believed to be involved in appetite regulation.
- "All the weight loss was in fat," Professor Boden said. "It helps to know that high glycemic carbohydrates make it more difficult to reduce food intake. So cutting the high glycemic carbohydrates at least to some extent will help keep down the caloric intake.
One sure fire way of losing weight is by drinking copious amounts of water. Drinking water flushes fats out of your system as well as increasing your metabolism. Instead of soft drinks or powdered drink mixes that are loaded with chemicals and sugar, I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder. Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have. You can substitute limes for lemons if you get bored and break the routine even more by adding a little unsweetened cranberry juice. Click here to order stevia powder.

“You need to keep drinking water to replace the fluids you’re losing.”
Sweat acts as your body's air conditioner, helping cool your body's core temperature and muscles, which can generate eight to 10 times more heat during exercise than at rest. Drinking plenty of water - staying hydrated - during exercise, whether it's a run on a treadmill or a session with weight machines, keeps your cooling system running right and your muscles working at top form.
Humans sweat more than any mammal and, under normal conditions, you'll lose about one to two quarts of fluid for every hour you spend exercising. You need to keep drinking water to replace the fluids you're losing. Besides cooling the body, water helps your cells absorb minerals, vitamins, and glucose, the all-important muscle fuel that allows you to exercise.
Water and your workout
Staying hydrated is one of the most fundamental performance goals for any exerciser. It's important to drink fluids before, during, and after exercise. For optimal hydration, you need to:
Drink at least 20 ounces of fluid two hours before your exercise session. This provides the body enough time to absorb what it needs and excrete the rest.
Drink another eight ounces of water 15 minutes before you begin exercising.
Bring a water bottle to your workout.
Drink during your workout. While exercising, consume a cup of water every 15 minutes. Don't rely on thirst. By the time you feel thirsty, you may already be two quarts of fluid below normal and in a dehydrated state.
Drink after your workout, but weigh yourself first. While the scale may show a post-exercise weight loss, it's not body fat that's been lost, but water. To regain proper fluid levels, drink a pint of water for every pound of weight that's been lost.
Keep yourself hydrated! Don't forget to drink plenty of water! What I suggest is adding the juice of half a lemon to 32 ounces of water with a sprinkle of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder . Aside from being less than 2 carbs, you will get the health benefits that the stevia provides along with the vitamin C and electrolytes that lemon have.
