6 Cause Your Diet Program Fails
Already exercise regularly, but the agency still fat? This question is often thrown especially for those who are on a slimming program. But do not give up yet, there are unexpected things that can sabotage your efforts in maintaining a healthy weight. Here is a 6 (six) reasons that you should know and may be the cause of the failure of your diet program:
1. A big meal at the weekend
Researchers have found evidence suggesting that most people generally will not realize that their food portions tend to be much on the weekends, especially on Saturdays. These people are also more likely to eat junk food eat-foods that contain lots of fat.
2. Do not eat fat "good"
Not eating fat is bad forever. Eating a diet rich in unsaturated fats such as nuts, avocados and olive oil can help you suppress your appetite. "Good" fats have an important task in triggering the production of compounds in the small intestine called oleoylethanolamide. Compound that will send satiety signals to the brain so that your meal is maintained. Even so, you should still limit your intake of fats "good" for about 2-3 tablespoons (30-45 ml) daily.
3. Not getting enough calcium
You need at least 1,000 milligrams of calcium per day than one cup of milk (250 ml), plus one cup of yogurt and cheese cubes (42 g) or supplements. A study in 2009 of the British Journal of Nutrition showed that women with obesity who consume calcium in large amounts, may boost weight loss. This is according to researchers because, the brain can detect calcium deficiency and try to compensate by increasing appetite to meet calcium needs.
4. Deceived by the size of the meal-snacks
A Dutch study in 2008 showing the relationship between the consumption of snacks with weight gain. The study involved 59 students who were given nine small bags of potato chips (45 g) or two large bags (200 g) for the meal when they're watching TV.
"The results showed that those who ate a small bag of chips tend to feel not to worry because he thought the portion was a bit. So, people tend to lose control and do not monitor how much they eat," said Rik Pieters, a professor of marketing at Tilburg University , who is also leader of the study.
5. Eating carbohydrates in the wrong amount
Eating foods with a moderate amount of calories from carbohydrates can help maintain a healthy weight. A study in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association has studied the diet of Canadians who eat 47-64 percent (290-310 g) of carbohydrate calories per day. The results show that they are less likely to be overweight or obese, than those who received lower carbohydrate intake.
6. Age was 40 years old or older
As he got older, the more difficult it is a struggle for someone to lose weight. "As we age, we lose muscle mass, so that your metabolism slows down as well. Conditions will be more in perparah if we do not exercise every day," said professor Larry Tucker, sports experts from Brigham Young University, Utah.
