Tips


Since raya month, tak boleh nak control diet, sedap je semua makanan....and only after 3 weeks beraya, bila balik kampung again at the end of Syawal mak said, "bulat sikit balik kali ni.". Now after a couple of months, bertambah2 lagi lah "chomel"nya..hehehe...




Tips for weight loss success :

a) Pick up produce - have at least one fruit and veggie at every meal. Fruits and veggies are high in fiber, which staves off hunger. Shoot for nine servings daily. It sounds like a lot, but if you don't have to be a rabbit to reach that goal. Eat a salad at lunch or dinner, and you're there.


b) Snack smart - add protein (such as a stick of lowfat string cheese or Parmesan) to your between-meal bites. Research suggests protein may enhance the effect of leptin, a hormone that reins in appetite. Protein is also filling and can help curb cravings for chips, cookies and the like.

c) Sip more water - dieters who swapped sugary drinks for water lose weight, but those who gulped the most H20 peeled off the most pounds, according to a study at the meeting of Obesity Society in Boston. Don’t love agua? Try the flavored kind but check the label for sugar content (it should be below 8 grams per serving).

d) Eat every meal - when you wait longer than five hours between bites, your body may release extra cortisol, a hormone that can increase appetite.


Flat-stomach secret:


A banana a day - eat it in the morning with cereal, as a postworkout snack, or in a smoothie, and it will cure those puffy, fat-feeling days -tight pants, rounder belly and feel a little swollen? One banana delivers 422 milligrams of potassium, which helps limit the amount of gut-bloating sodium in your body.


Uncover glowing skin:

Wash your face for a full 30 to 60 seconds - the time it takes cleansing agents to loosen dirt, oil and makeup.

At-home tip: Soak a washcloth in whole milk and drape it over your face. The fat in the milk soothes skin while its lactic acid gently exfoliates.
