Stop Drinking Alcohol And Lose Weight

Your body isn’t able to store the alcohol that you drink. It slows down its metabolism and stops processing fats and sugars. To further complicate matters, alcohol is full of empty calories. These calories average 7 per gram of alcohol. Over the course of time these calories add up and begin to weigh on you, literally.

Food Comparables

That rum and soda or whiskey and soda are comparable to a large sized muffin. Now picture how many drinks you had and focus on how many muffins you would have just eaten.

A glass of wine would be equivalent to a piece of cake.

A beer would be equivalent to a huge slice of pizza.

This gives you an idea of the empty calories that you’re consuming while obtaining no nutritional value.

Mixed Drinks

That juice that you’re mixing your drink with is laden with sugar and empty calories. Add that to the empty calories in your alcohol and you’re likely to consumer over half of your daily calorie allotment in two single drinks. That’s a lot of calories and if you continue in this fashion on a daily basis you’re likely to be gaining weight now.

Snacking

Most bars have snacks readily available. Most of these snacks are laden with sugar or salt or both. Salt and sugar can help make you thirstier and they can also pack on more weight. Sugar is an addiction in and of itself and it can pack on a lot of calories. Add that to the alcohol and you’re likely consuming your daily allotment of calories in one evening.

Salt can make you retain water which will also pack on the weight. Left unchecked you could pack on an additional several pounds in an evening of munching on pretzels or popcorn while drinking.

Curbing The Calories

So how do you curb the calories while still enjoying a night out? It’s easy if you follow these tips:

Eat a healthy meal before you go out to party. You won’t be as likely to overindulge.

Instead of drinking a Margarita for example try ordering the vodka in club soda or a light fruit juice. You might save up to 400 calories.

Opt for a veggie platter in lieu of sugary or salty snacks. Avoid the dips however, they can be heavy with salt and fats.

Instead of slugging down drink after drink, force yourself to drink a glass of water between each alcoholic beverage that you consume. This will help your body to metabolize the alcohol and other foods that you’ve recently eaten.

Most people drink to unwind after a hectic day at work. Be mindful of the amount of alcohol consumed. Opt for lighter versions of your favourite spirits. Mix your drinks with lighter versions of fruit juices in lieu of sugary mixers that will pack on the pounds. If you make this your habit you can avoid those excess pounds.

Drop Fat, Get Muscle

By now, countless people’s New Year’s resolutions have fallen through; one in particular is to lose weight. Not only is it complex to lose weight, but to gain muscle at the same time seems impossible. Fortunately there are certain tips in dieting and exercise which may be helpful in completing this.

1. Weight loss occurs when your body has fewer calories. This can occur with dieting and/or exercise. Weight training not only burns calories, but also puts your muscles to work, building and strengthening them. Once you have increased your muscle, you will also burn more calories. Muscle burns calories, thus helping in weight loss. Calorie maintenance level is the number of calories your body naturally burns each day; muscle increases this number substantially. Weight training includes squats, dead lifts, bench presses, bicep curls, hammer curls, tricep extensions, exc. Other exercises which would be helpful are squats lunges, crunches, push-ups and back extensions.

2. Eat the right foods if you want to lose weight. You cannot expect your body to discard fat when you are still maintaining a high calorie intake, even if you do weight exercises. Foods you should eat when trying to gain muscle include the following:

a. Protein: Lots and lots of protein! Eat meat, poultry, fish, eggs, peanut butter, etc.

b. Fat: As bad as this sounds, fat is essential for muscle gain. Just exercise lots and the bad fat will be gone. Fish oil and omega 3, 6, and 9 are great for muscle gain.

c. Vegetables and fruits: Colorful vegetables are the best. The more colorful the plate, the healthier it is. Fruits have healthy sugar in them. This is a better form of sugar than what you could get from most other foods.

d. Water: Drink and drink and drink water. It is essential for everything.

e. Whole grains: Trade your white bread or rice for whole grain if you want to lose weight and gain muscle.

Other tips are:

– Avoid foods that come out of a box.

– Avoid trans-fats, but saturated fats are fine.

– Don’t drink pop.

– Limit not-natural sugar consumption.

Other options such as protein powder and prescription and non prescription drugs can help you to reach your goal as you lose weight, and gain muscle.

Scientists Delete Obesity Gene

Filed under: fatty diet,genes,mice,obesity,overweight,Uncategorized,weight gain,weight loss — robertprice @ 10:09 am
Researchers have discovered that weight gain in mice is caused by a gene that can be literally “switched-off”. When the gene is deleted, the mice stay slim even if they have fatty diets. The gene is called IKKE and when it is deactivated the mice do not experience weight gain – even when being fed a lard based meal.

The study, put out in the September 4th issue of the journal Cell, describes that several mice ate high fat diets, while others ate low fat diets for 3-4 months. It was found that the mice without the IKKE gene on the high fat diets stayed slim. Researchers believe that removing the IKKE gene speeds up the metabolism of mice allowing them to burn more calories. The gene produces an enzyme that activates other proteins and controls and regulates metabolism.

“The knockout[IKKE geneless] mice are not exercising any more than the control mice used in the study.” Study author Alan Saltiel Director of the University of Michigan Life Sciences Institute said in a press release. “They’re just burning more energy, and in the process, they’re generating a little heat as well – their body temperature actually increases a bit.”

“We’ve studied other genes associated with obesity – we call them ‘obeseogenes'” Saltiel said “But this is the first one we’ve found that when deleted, stops the animal from gaining weight.”

More researched is required in order to determine if the IKKE gene is connected to weight gain in humans, however there is potential. One day we may develop an anti-obesity drug.
