9 Bad Habits That Make You Fat

9 Bad Habits That Make You Fat


Mention the words ‘weight loss’ and you
can certainly spark a debate. Everyone seems to have their own favorite
method. But unfortunately, it’s a process much like
a yo-yo. In today’s video we’ll explore 9 bad habits
that may be keeping most people from losing that weight and keeping it off. 1. Eating before going to bed
Most likely, we eat late at night because it’s a habit – not because we are hungry. If you were to keep track of all you ate at
bedtime for one week, you may notice a pattern. You may be consuming something sweet and high
in calories. If you feel you must eat something, select
a piece of fruit. 2. Sleeping poorly
Keeping a set sleep schedule should enhance your sleep. If you don’t have any set time to go to
bed, your body’s chemistry may get out of synch. This creates hormonal imbalances that trick
you into believing you will only be satisfied if you eat. 3. Eating while distracted
Flopping down on the couch to watch TV after a long day can be relaxing. But before long you may begin to snack without
even paying attention to what you are consuming. The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition
conducted a study that revealed distractions result in a person eating 50 percent more
calories. Just make sure the next time you sit down
with your laptop or tv that snacks don’t mysteriously join you. 4. Stress and anxiety
These two words can be your worst enemies. They can increase your weight and disrupt
your quality of life. When we experience these feelings, we are
confronted with “emotional hunger.” When this strikes, we tend to eat more. Our immediate urge is to relieve this distress
by eating sweets or junk food. These are indeed serious issues, but if you
must eat, try to first consume a piece of fruit with water or tea. 5. Eating quickly
Our generation is always in a hurry. We are a mobile society and eat on the run. Often, we don’t take time to properly chew
our food. If we did, we would be more satisfied by feeling
full. It generally takes twenty minutes to eat,
if we chew each bite slowly. 6. Being sedentary
If we lived in the wild west and rode horses and walked more, we wouldn’t fall victim
to a sedentary lifestyle. This is one of the major factors in the global
epidemic of obesity. When we sit, we eat. Then fat begins to creep around our midsections
and we aren’t so eager to get involved in physical activity. Make it a goal to avoid too much idleness
and you’ll be able to shed those pounds easier. 7. Skipping breakfast
If we don’t manage to grab something on the way out the door to work or school, we
may just skip breakfast entirely. Most dieticians and health care professionals
agree that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Our food in the morning activates our metabolism. And once that switch is turned on, it tends
to stay powered up all day. Without a good metabolism rate, it’s nearly
impossible to burn calories. Your first meal of the day should include
proteins, a small portion of a healthy fat food, and combined complex carbohydrates. 8. Excessive salt
An accumulation of salt isn’t good for your weight, but it can also cause fluid retention. When there’s too much fluid, this may have
a negative impact on your blood pressure. If flavor is what you are looking for, try
other ways to spice up your meal. 9. Not consuming enough liquids
Our kidneys, among other organs, have difficulty functioning properly when they don’t have
enough water. For one thing, toxins can accumulate. To stay hydrated, experts suggest drinking
at least 2 liters of water daily. This will lead to better elimination of waste
and also prevent excess fluid buildup. One way to stay hydrated is to drink tea or
natural juices. Consuming carbonated beverages is not a good
source of fluid. This will only lead to weight gain because
of their high levels of sugar.
