You train regularly, eat fruits and vegetables, and you do annual reviews. It seems that everything is going so well and you feel great. But even if you feel very healthy, does not mean that your daily habits make you be same in the future.
Let’s see what errors can be doing and how you can avoid them.
You take a very healthy dinner but you do not go to sleep soon enough, you should read this.
There are millions of recipes about how to make a perfect dinner, what foods to eat, what not. But if you stay awake for hours immersed in a book, watching a movie or another thing, may be you are undoing the good work of the kitchen. According to the National Sleep Foundation, most of us do not sleep enough hours, and that can make us gain weight, have anxiety, insulin resistance, hypertension and heart problems.
On the other hand, a good night’s sleep stimulates the production of fat burning hormones. So if you sleep the recommended 7 to 8 hours you will gain a few kilos of preventing more while protecting your health.
You take food from home but your portions are larger than the restaurant.
Just because your meals are healthy does not mean you do not have to control the portions you eat. The ideal portion would be half a plate of vegetables and the other half with a food rich in protein size of a cell, a portion the size of a fist of cereals, and some fat no bigger than the tip of your finger.
You get away from trans fats but you do not include healthy fats.
You know that eating trans fats increase the risk of heart disease and stroke. But not all fats are the same. Eat healthy fats such as fish and nuts help you lose weight and stay healthy. Fats not only help absorb many vitamins but also make us feel fuller for longer. A good dose of healthy fats can be 1/4 cup almonds or walnuts, sauteed vegetables with a tablespoon of olive oil or avocado portions.
You hydrate but you drink from a plastic bottle.
You know how important it is to stay hydrated, so do not ever separated from your water bottle. Well, although I have always recommended to take the necessary dose of water a day, you should seriously reconsider change your plastic bottle. Bisphenol A (BPA) which may contain the plastic bottles too long can affect male and female fertility, and is also linked to obesity. And it is that science does not lie: In a 2011 study at Harvard found that adults with the highest rate of urine BPA had more hip circumference and more likely to gain weight than those with fewer.
