10 WEIGHT-LOSS TIPS FOR THE HURRIED WOMAN

  1. Eat your meals slowly.
    Take the time to chew your food. Eating your meal quickly does not allow your body
    to properly digest your food and get the proper amount of nutrients.
  2. Eat food that can boost estrogen levels. For women, some of the foods that supply needed amounts of estrogen, are apples, celery, beets, cherries, and cucumbers.
  3. Resistance training.
    Work with resistance devices a few days a week in your home or at the gym
  4. Eat snacks that you enjoy.
    Don't worry. You can enjoy your favorite snacks once in a while, as long as
    you don't overdo it.
  5. Avoid low-fat diets.
    Low-fat diets just don't work. Getting some fat in your diet is important.
     A low-fat diet could lead to overeating due to the lack of necessary fat.
  6. Eat protein-rich foods.
    You need protein to build muscle strength. It supplies you with the energy
    needed to get through your day.
  7. Keep to the same diet.
    Changing diets can drive your body crazy. You most likely will gain weight
    before your body can adjust to the new diet. It's a losing proposition.
  8. Keep a balanced diet.
    Keeping a balanced is important. Make sure you are including all the nutrients
    your body needs on a daily basis.
  9. Take walks.
    Walk, walk and walk some more. Studies have shown that walking is an
    excellent way to stay healthy and fit.
  10. Avoid stress.
    Ah yes, stress. Avoiding stress in this day and age is not easy. It's important
    to find some time each day to take a break for 15 to 30 minutes to just sit down
    in some quiet place and try not to think of anything.
    Think about taking some yoga classes.

Exercise

Exercise caused mice to pump out B.D.N.F., a protein that scientists sometimes refer to as “Miracle-Gro” for the brain.
