Health Tips

Avoid Processed Junk Food (Eat Real Food Instead)

  • All the processed junk foods in the diet are the biggest reason the world is fatter and sicker than ever before.
  • These foods have been engineered to be “hyper-rewarding,” so they trick our brains into eating more than we need, even leading to addiction in some people (15).
  • They are also low in fiber, protein and micronutrients (empty calories), but high in unhealthy ingredients like added sugar and refined grains.

Don’t Fear Coffee

  • Coffee has been unfairly demonized. The truth is that it’s actually very healthy.
  • Coffee is high in antioxidants, and studies show that coffee drinkers live longer, and have a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s and numerous other diseases.

Get Enough Sleep

  • The importance of getting enough quality sleep cannot be overstated. It may be just as important as diet and exercise, if not more.
  • Poor sleep can drive insulin resistance, throw your appetite hormones out of whack and reduce your physical and mental performance.
  • What’s more, it is one of the strongest individual risk factors for future weight gain and obesity. One study showed that short sleep was linked to 89% increased risk of obesity in children, and 55% in adults.

Drink Some Water, Especially Before Meals

  • Drinking enough water can have numerous benefits.
  • One important factor, is that it can help boost the amount of calories you burn.
  • According to 2 studies, it can boost metabolism by 24-30% over a period of 1-1.5 hours. This can amount to 96 additional calories burned if you drink 2 liters (67 oz) of water per day).
  • The best time to drink water is half an hour before meals. One study showed that half a liter of water, 30 minutes before each meal, increased weight loss by 44%.

Don’t Overcook or Burn Your Meat

  • Meat can be a nutritious and healthy part of the diet. It is very high in protein, and contains various important nutrients.
  • The problems occur when meat is overcooked and burnt. This can lead to the formation of harmful compounds that raise the risk of cancer (38).
  • So, eat your meat, just don’t overcook or burn it.
