3 Tips On How To Lose Body Fat

12 Oct

Almost anyone we know, including ourselves, would love to shed off a little bit of belly fat. There are many affordable ways to achieve this goal with either a personal trainer, fitness plan, or great diet plan. Regardless of all the techniques out there to help us burn off stubborn fat, here are 3 main tips on losing fat.

3 Tips For Fat Loss

Intermittent Fasting

This technique for fat loss isn’t new. It’s been around for 100’s of years. It’s what the techniques the Greeks used in the old ages. That’s why most of them were in great physical condition.

Intermittent fasting is where you set an amount of time, usually 16-20 hours of no eating. You will do all of your eating within a 4-8 hour span. Do this for 2-4 days a week and get ready to see results in the next 30 days!

A typical day for someone can look like this: Sleep at 10 pm. Wake up at 6 am. Start your first meal at 2-4 pm and finish up before 6-8 pm. Then rinse and repeat this for anywhere from 2-5 days a week. It’s recommended you start out with just 1-2 days a week and gradually build your body up for 4-5 days of fasting.

The reason why intermittent fasting works is that when we eat, our body is releasing insulin which prevents us from burning fat. Instead, it stores the excess food into our fat stores. By not eating, or fasting, our body isn’t producing insulin and looks for the immediate source of energy. The first place it looks is in our glycogen stores, once that is depleted our body uses our fat stores for energy. While this isn’t a comprehensive guide on intermittent fasting, it will give you a general idea of how it works.

Personal Training

While hiring an expert can become quite costly, there are ways to find affordable personal trainer Sacramento. The best way to go would be to buy training sessions in bulk. In most cases, 4-5 block sessions are most common. Depending on your location, you can easily find a trainer who will provide 4-5 block sessions for as low as $200. That’s roughly $40 a session! It’s a cheap price to pay when it comes to the health of our body.

Finding an affordable personal trainer in Sacramento is as simple as doing a quick 15-30 minute research online. Use resources such as Twitter or Yelp and write down a list of 5-10 trainers that have good reviews and catch your attention. Once you have your list of 5-10, schedule a time in your day to call them and see their pricing.

High-Intensity Interval Training

Also known as HIIT, is a technique where you train at high intensities, or all-out effort, in short periods and rest only for short periods. There are many different ways to do a HIIT workout. Most HIIT workouts last 10-20 minutes and performed up to 3-5 days a week while slowly working your way up. An example of one way to do HIIT is as follows: Start a light jog for 40 seconds and go straight into your fastest sprint for the next 10-15 seconds. Repeat this for 10 rounds or about 10 minutes. Once you acclimate your body to HIIT training you can increase your workout up to 20 minutes.

HIIT is a different approach to traditional cardio where you have to run for 30+ minutes to see results. HIIT is a fast and effective way to burn fat without spending hours doing cardio.

We are sure that if you select one of these techniques to implement into your daily routine that you WILL see results (assuming you follow a well-guided diet plan). Intermittent fasting, personal training Sacramento, and HIIT have been around for ages. It’s not just a random thing that these routines have been around this long. They have been around for ages because they work. Simple as that!

Americans and Cholesterol Medication

13 Apr

There’s a lot of talk about cholesterol, and much of it is really confusing . That’s largely because there are two kinds of cholesterol, “good” cholesterol called HDL (short for high density lipoprotein) which doctors like to see at high levels in your body, and “bad” cholesterol called LDL (low density lipoprotein) which doctors like better at low levels. Adding to the confusion is the fact that good cholesterol helps combat bad cholesterol, clearing it from your blood.

Cholesterol is a waxy, fat-like substance in the blood stream. Most cholesterol is produced by your liver, but some comes from eating animal products like meat, poultry, dairy and eggs. Your body needs cholesterol to create cell membranes, hormones, bile and vitamin D. But too much LDL cholesterol can clog your arteries with a thick plaque, causing them to harden and narrow. The resulting reduction in blood flow can put you at risk of heart attack, stroke and heart disease.

One in five Americans has unhealthily high LDL cholesterol. The scary thing is, most of them don’t know it. High LDL cholesterol has no symptoms, and can only be detected with a blood test. Doctors recommend everyone have their cholesterol tested at age 20, and every five years after if levels are normal.

Factors that can raise or lower your cholesterol levels include:

1) Diet: Eating a lot of saturated fat and cholesterol rich foods can raise bad cholesterol, while a diet rich in fiber, vegetables and omega 3 oils can lower it.

2) Exercise: Even moderate exercise can lower bad cholesterol, as long as it’s done regularly.

3) Weight: Being overweight can raise your LDL (bad) cholesterol level and lower your HDL (good) cholesterol level.

4) Age: Men aged 45 years and over and women aged 55 and up are at increased risk of high LDL cholesterol.

5) Gender: A woman’s LDL cholesterol level and risk of heart disease increase after menopause.

6) Genetics: A family history of high cholesterol also play a role, but doctors say the majority of high cholesterol is due to poor diet and lifestyle rather than genes.

7) Diabetes: Poorly controlled diabetes can also raise cholesterol levels.

8) Smoking: Smoking lowers HDL (good) cholesterol levels, and adds to the risk of heart disease.

People genetically predisposed to high LDL levels, those with cardiovascular problems and those unable to manage their high cholesterol with lifestyle changes like diet and exercise may need to be treated with cholesterol medications. Statins like simvastin or atorvastin are the cholesterol medication of choice for most. Statins are cholesterol lowering drugs that block an enzyme the body needs to produce cholesterol, causing LDL cholesterol levels in the blood to go down. Statins also cause a mild increase in the levels of HDL cholesterol. According to Dr. Pamela Peeke, Assistant Professor at the University of the Maryland School of Medicine, “Statins can lower LDL cholesterol by 20% to 50%.” Statins may be prescribed alone or combined with other cholesterol lowering medications for extra effect.
