4 Super Healthy Breakfast Smoothies That Will Energize You All Day - The Zoe Report

Image
It's been said that your first meal of the day is the most important. That said, some people opt to go all-out with a balanced and filling plate of food while others are bolting out the door with just a bulletproof coffee. And still there are so many variations in between. But if you've been looking to change up your morning routine with something besides your standard avocado toast or grab-and-go muffin, you might want to consider some super healthy breakfast smoothies that can keep you as energized as a cup of joe. In fact, some of them might even be the perfect coffee alternative if you're trying to cut back.According to the experts, the healthiest breakfasts are the ones that keep you feeling satiated with protein, good fats (like coconut oil or avocado), and fiber to keep your digestion running smoothly and your cholesterol low — and that's one reason you might opt for whole fruits and veggies versus just drinking the juice. But if a beverage you can drink on-the-…

Going vegan for January? Find out how much difference it really makes - New Scientist

Image
Millions of people will try a vegan diet this month for Veganuary. But can short-term or part-time vegans really reap health and environmental benefits? New Scientist put it to the testHealth31 December 2019 By Helen Thomsonlaudia Totir/Getty Images JANUARY is the time of year when many of us take a rain check on our indulgences. We politely wave away puddings, gyms heave with new recruits and plenty of us lay off the booze. This year, it is estimated that at least 1 million people will do something even more challenging: eat a vegan diet for the month.Choose to follow suit and you can forget about that juicy bacon sandwich, say goodbye to scrambled eggs and there will be no more milk in your coffee. It is a challenge not to be sniffed at. But it is a worthy one: the evidence suggests that, done carefully, veganism is good for our health and great for the planet.Perhaps that explains the growing trend towards part-time veganism, of which Veganuary is just one example.

If Your New Year's Resolution Is To Lose Weight, Then Make Losing Weight Easy - Coach

Image
We all wish it was easy to change and rid ourselves of bad habits, but most people’s experiences are that change is hard. But what if we were looking at it the wrong way all this time? What if the key to change was to make it stupidly easy? That’s one of the revelations from BJ Fogg’s Tiny Habits, a new book that shares a model of behaviour many at Silicon Valley’s biggest companies have known about and been using for more than a decade.Coach to spoke to Fogg, the Stanford University behaviour science expert, about that, as well as how his method can be applied to weight loss and New Year’s resolutions.How did Tiny Habits come about?I’m a behaviour scientist, but Tiny Habits didn’t come out of academic lab experiments. I did it in my own life for a year or so and then I started teaching others – anywhere from two to 400 people a week, some in person but mostly on email – for seven years. Week after week I was measuring and testing, then it became more of a research project.How does th…

Woman Upset She Didn’t Lose Weight Loses ‘Diet’ Dr Pepper Lawsuit Appeal - NBC Southern California

Calling a soft drink “diet” isn't a weight-loss promise, a federal appeals court said Monday.The Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco refused to reinstate a class-action lawsuit by a woman who argued that the makers of Diet Dr Pepper committed fraud.Shana Becerra of Santa Rosa argued that she had been drinking Diet Dr Pepper for more than 13 years and “did not receive what she paid for” because of deceptive advertising, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.But when used as an adjective, the dictionary definition of “diet” refers to a product that has fewer calories that the “regular" version of the product, said the ruling by Judge Jay Bybee in a 3-0 appellate panel decision.“No reasonable consumer would assume that Diet Dr Pepper’s use of the term ‘diet’ promises weight loss or management."Judge Jay Bybee, Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals“No reasonable consumer would assume that Diet Dr Pepper’s use of the term ‘diet’ promises weight loss or managemen…

How starch-rich breakfast is beneficial for diabetic people - Times of India

Image
We all know that breakfast, as the first meal of the day is very important and a recent study claims that those who are suffering from diabetes should make the first meal starch-rich to replace insulin injections and other medications. It has been priven that consuming a starch-rich breakfast early in the morning followed by a light dinner could replace insulin injections.
According to the research, our metabolism and biological clock are optimised for eating in the morning and for fasting during the evening and night, when we are supposed to be asleep.
This study came to light after a study that found people diagnosed by Type 2 diabetics usually inject themselves with insulin, a hormone that regulates the movement of sugar into liver, muscle and fat cells, up to four times a day.
But insulin injections are linked to weight gain and the loss of control of blood sugar levels. This triggers a vicious cycle of higher insulin doses, continuous weight gain, a higher incidence of cardiovas…

Charlyn Fargo Ware: Mini Resolutions to Help You Lose Weight - Noozhawk

By | December 30, 2019 | 11:55 a.m. If your resolution in 2020 is to lose weight, try these six mini resolutions that will upgrade your health. Even write them on your calendar — one for each week, to help remind you. Research has found it helps to break down resolutions into smaller action plans for success.Make protein a part of every meal. Go beyond that steak for dinner. We need protein in the morning, too. Consuming a meal with protein makes us feel fuller and helps us eat fewer calories overall. Add a hard-boiled egg to your breakfast, powered peanut butter to your oatmeal or a cup of Greek yogurt or high-protein cereal to your fruit.Add more plants to your meals. I’m not advocating a total vegetarian meal plan, but I do think all of us can benefit from a more plant-based diet, which can help reduce the risk of heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, cancer and obesity. You can swap half the meat in your tacos with beans, add more veggies in your lasagna or go a step further and have mea…

Vegan Diet and Losing Weight - Vegans Fat Loss - menshealth.com

Going vegan—whether it's for the planet, your health, or both—is a little different than deciding to do keto, try intermittent fasting, or (for some reason) go carnivore.While most people follow a vegan diet out of a combination of environmental, ethical or health concerns, there may be some benefit for those looking to lose weight as well.The potential benefit of a vegan diet on weight loss shouldn’t quite come as a surprise. Vegan diets limit a lot of foods that are typical in the standard American diet.This, often, means that the typical American going vegan will eat less food because less food options are available to them and, in turn, may eat fewer calories too. Subscribe to Men’s Health The foods you can eat on a vegan diet also tend to be high in fiber, which is a gut-filling food. High-fiber foods are also often high in water (think: fruits and vegetables). They may require more chewing, which slows down overall eating, and reduces hunger hormones.Another interesting benefi…

How to lose weight in the New Year: top tips from celebrity chefs - Spectator.co.uk

“I don’t put weight on because I always exercise, even at Christmas. I am like a machine – I never stop!” I have made the mistake of asking Fred Sirieix how he sheds his Christmas pounds. As a French foodie who eats his way around the world in Road Trip with Gordon Ramsey and Gino D’Acampo, I thought he’d have secrets for offsetting the Celebrations, but I have clearly made an error in judgement.I turn to Gino, who advocates “moderation.” I don’t think they understand that Christmas is code for unbridled gluttony. I’ve been getting through two tubs of brandy cream to one box of mince pies, twice a week, since I opened my advent calendar. This is no time for moderation.Having previously asked jockeys how they stay thin at Christmas (Hint: sweating in a boiling bath), I’d hoped the nation’s most celebrated chefs might be more on my wavelength.Great British Menu judge Tom Aikens is opening his restaurant Muse this month, but he’s still found time to get stuck in over Christmas. “I’m a bi…

Is veganism as good for you as they say? - The Guardian

Image
Katharina Wirnitzer was in the midst of training for the Bike Transalp race, one of the world’s toughest endurance events, when she began investigating whether a vegan diet was suitable for athletes.The year was 2003 and veganism was a long way from the current boom, which has established it as one of the most in-vogue dietary trends. But Wirnitzer, a sports scientist at the University of Innsbruck, had become intrigued by the resurgence of ancient theories linking plant-based diets with improved athletic performance.“The first athletes on strict plant-based diets were gladiators,” she says. “Roman scripts report that all fighters adhered to gladiatoriam saginam, which was based on plant foods, including large amounts of legumes, pulses and grains, and contained little or no animal protein.”Now, almost two millennia later, Wirnitzer is one of a handful of researchers trying to get to the bottom of whether veganism could enhance an athlete’s chances of sporting success. Over the past d…
