Apple cider vinegar for weight loss or diabetes control? You may want to think again.
ACV has been spoken and written about so much and is quite a trend these days. When you look at the scientific evidence supporting these theories, there really isn't any.
Studies have been short term trials which lack statistical power, plus there is little money available to researchers to conduct longer valid studies.
➡️ Blood glucose: ACV does not prevent glucose absorption but does delay it. The. Acetic acid blocks starch absorption. ACV has been how to lower post meal blood glucose and can have a favorable impact in waking glucose concentrations. It is a safe enough addition along with diabetes treatment plan.
➡️Weight loss: studies show there is a reduction of caloric intake throughout the day by 200 Kcal after taking ACV. This is thought to be due to decrease in gastric emptying rate resulting in increased satiety. Appetite suppressing effect may also be due to nausea caused by vinegar consumption. .
If you choose to take ACV and it makes you feel like it's doing something, then no harm done. But here are some cautionary points.
⚠️ Can erode tooth enamel so drink water after consumption.
⚠️ May exacerbate acid reflux
⚠️Caution to those with kidney disease
☝️You can count on ACV as a dressing to your salads, cleaning solution, baking, to cleanse the scalp, and insect bites , but if you're looking for a weight loss or diabetes solution don't rely on ACV. Keep your gym membership 🏋️ switch to plant based diet 🍅🍠🥑 and make some lifestyle changes! .

Trying to lose weight? Make good choices to give yourself the best shot!

As most of you probably already know, not all food items have the same amount of calories. Generally, foods that are higher in fat tend to have more calories, given that 1 gram of fat is 9 calories, whereas protein & carbs have 4 calories each per gram.
In addition, carbs & fruits/veggies tend to be much more filling, yet less calorie dense. This means that you can intake a much higher volume of these foods, yet also feel more satiated. This is why when it comes to fat loss, it is important that you strategically eat foods that are less calorie dense so you can avoid a constant feeling of hunger.
However, that being said, you should not be completely avoiding all the foods on the left side of the diagram. Rather, eat a balanced diet, while keeping in mind which foods can help you feel full for longer w/o consuming a large amount of calories.

Kick-starting the week as we shed light on what I call the "*MondayMyth*" that claims eat fast digesting carbohydrates prior to workout.
Simplifying the DO's and DON'TS for the ideal pre-workout nutrition-
Should never be eaten as it spikes up your blood glucose as a result causes a yoyo in insulin leading to loss/ deprived of energy sting workout.
Slow digesting carbs keep muscle glycogen full and ensures stable energy during workout lasting for a long time as a result improving performance.
My personal choices that help me last longer and go heavy during my workout include Oats / quinoa / a paratha or chilla's made out of lentils / bulletproof coffee.
Let's bust👊 the "MondayMyth"

Stop looking for the easy and fast option, there's no cutting corners here!
Take the time to understand food and what it means for your goals.
Plan out how it can aid you and help achieve your goals.
Then execute with the most suitable means to suit your lifestyle.
Keep things sustainable and enjoy food. No need to abstain from your favourite foods by doing some ridiculous diet created and run by someone who isn't qualified in nutrition and has no bloody clue!
You wouldn't find an un-qualified dentist to fix your teeth would ya?
Didn't think so 🤷
Chances are, they've done the diet to the extreme and seen short term results. Now they're after your money and will passionately back said diet until you buy-in. So passionately it sounds too good to be too. And it is.
Need some sustainable help with nutrition?

DO WOMEN HAVE TO EAT DIFFERENTLY TO MEN?
Some interesting thoughts you may not have considered before 👇
During exercise, women use less carbohydrates than men, yet burn more fat at the same exercise intensity (Tarnopolsky, 2008).
What does that mean for you if you’re female?
You can potentially burn & utilise fat better than men, which means low carb diets and higher fat COULD work - but it’s all down to preference as always, but worth considering if you’re undecided on an approach to use.
ONE bonus if you do choose a low carb, high fat diet is that hunger levels will be improved due to the satiety of high fat diet. Of course this means less calories, potentially more weight loss - that said, nothing wrong with carbs, but this is just a different option.
What about carbs though? there is no magic to carb cycling but this is an approach some people use, this is basically a dietary approach in which you alternate carb intake on a daily, weekly or monthly basis - worth trying, see if it works for you.
You also have to consider, frame size, muscle mass etc, compared to men, for the most part this will be less, so it makes sense you won’t need to eat as much as men.
At the end of the day, the best plan is one that’s tailored to you - so why don’t you send me a quick DM if you’re still unsure & we’ll have a quick chat about what would work best for you.

Nah, yang tidak kalah pentingnya kita harus menjaga asupan vitamin giziers. Vitamin yang baik untuk kulit dan dapat mengatasi kekeringan pada kulit antara lain :
1. Vitamin A
Vitamin A berfungsi untuk mencegah kulit kering, keriput, dan rusak, sehingga jika kita mengkonsumsi sumber vitamin A yg cukup maka kulit kita menjadi kencang, elastis, dan awet muda. Sumber vitamin A antara lain sayuran hijau, jeruk, telur, ati ayam, wortel, papaya, blewah, mangga, dsb.
2. Vitamin B Kompleks
Salah satu vitamin B kompleks yang berperan dalam mengatasi kulit kering adalah vitamin B7 atau Biotin karena berguna untuk menjaga pertumbuhan kulit kita. Giziers dapat mengkonsumsi pisang, telur, ikan, daging, oatmeal, dan nasi.
3. Vitamin C
Vitamin C membantu mengatasi kulit kering, kusam, keriput dan gelap, membantu menangkal tanda2 penuaan dini, melindungi tubuh dari sinar matahari, mengurangi kerusakan sel, memiliki sifat antioksidan, serta membantu penyembuhan luka.

Who loves 🍝 pasta?
I do but I know a large serve of it is sooo high in calories it can take up a large portion of your daily caloric intake.
A bowl of plain pasta can be in excess of 400 calories!
And to factor in a serve for yourself that fits... well it ends up being so small it’s hardly worth it.
SOLUTION? These Konjac fettuccine noodles!
They’re really low in calories and can create the volume you want without all the calories.
I have a small serve of actual pasta and add the Konjac noodles to create a dish that gives my partners a run for the money 🙌🏻 Konjac noodles like these are found in supermarkets such as Foodland. #finessenutrition#nutritiontips#healthymindandbody#food#nutrition
This message is as much for me as it is everyone else. If we stay focused on 1% improvements day on day the progress we can make would be insane. It's when we stop and get down about things without evening thinking that's the problem. How can we make a 1% improvement?

حذف کامل چربی ها از رژیم غذایی غلط است :
حذف کامل چربی ها از رژیم غذایی منطقی نیست رژیم های بدون چربی باعث میشود که شما از رژیم احساس خستگی کنید و لذت غذا خوردن از بین میرود البته میزان چربی و نوع چربی که استفاده میکنید بسیار مهم است .
همچنین حذف کامل چربی ها ی مفید برای سلامت سیستم عصبی و اندام ها مضر است و بدن را مستعد به ابتلای بسیاری از بیماری ها میکند.
میزان مناسب استفاده از چربی ها بین ۲۰ تا ۳۰ درصد از کل کالری دریافتی روزانه است .

🔥Le gasesti eronat sub numele de ”fat burner” – insa astea se refera la o crestere termogenica a organismului pentru a ”arde” mai multe grasimi.
Avem 3 stadii are ”dorintei de a manca”:
🍭Apetitul – o dorinta de a manca/a rontai ceva (> psihica). Ridicat, duce la dorinta de a manca mai mult. Poti sa il ignori, dar necesita mult efort si va cauza niste raspunsuri corporale & mentale stresante.
🍽️Foamea – o dorinta de a manca/a cauta linistea (>fizica). Apare atunci cand nu mananci suficiente calorii. Este inevitabila de-a lungul dietelor lungi de slabit.
🤷♀Satietatea – lipsa dorintei de a manca/rontai. Daca nu ajungi la satietate, vei manca tot mai mult.
Si totusi ... exista inhibitori naturali ai poftei de mancare?
Da, dar nu cei la care te gandesti. Inhibitorii reprezinta ceva ce te face sa nu mai mananci si care pot actiona pe toate cele 3 paliere enumerate anterior.
🦠Proteina – proteina actioneaza la nivelul peptidelor YY din creier, in stransa corelatie cu dorinta de a manca. Asta pe langa beneficiile de mentinere a muschilor. Chiar daca nu e universal valabil ca vei manca mai putin, data viitoare cand te roade mananca un iaurt grecesc, niste fasii de pui sau o mana de naut in locul unei portocale/covrigel.
🦃 5-HTP/triptofan. Este un precursor al serotoninei – neurotransmitator cunoscut drept "hormonul fericirii", dar are si roluri în reglarea apetitului, libidoului, depresiei, sanatatii cardiace si intestinale. Un nivel scazut de serotonina creste dorinta de carbohidrati si invers. Iar suplimentarea cu 5-HTP poate ridica nivelul asta. Asa ca daca ai atacuri de panica, esti „moody”, suparat pe viata samd, ai putea incerca. Bonus: are beneficii asupra somnului – dormi mai adanc si mai bine.
☕ Stimulentele – cofeina in special, pentru ca e naturala. Sau yohimbina. Insa este o sabie cu 2 taisuri pentru ca eventual iti va da dureri de cap, ametelea si tremurat.
Prin cele nasoale dar promovate?
👀Garnicia cambodgia – studiile recente arata ca sunt practic luate degeaba.
🤦 Piperul cayenne – pentru ca e extrem de iute -nu mai sa mananci de durere, acid gastric ridicat sau alte probleme stomacale. Why would you do that?
Eat more 🐔 & stay 😊! 😍
When people ask me what is the best protein powder for men’s weight loss, I explain that there are many factors that go into choosing this supplement. In this article – link in bio, I aim to clarify some of the confusion surrounding protein powder for men and recommend the ones that are most appropriate for men’s nutritional needs.
Repost @maxweberfit 💥 How Many Calories Should You Eat For Your Goals?💥
✅ If your goal is to lose fat, build muscle, get stronger, tone up or improve overall health then you probably know 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙣𝙪𝙩𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣 𝙞𝙨 𝙠𝙚𝙮.
🙌🏼 And while there are many factors in play, the total number of calories you eat per day is the most important part of your diet.
🍕 And while calories are not the only thing that matter, they do matter most.
🤔 𝐒𝐨, 𝐡𝐨𝐰 𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐲 𝐜𝐚𝐥𝐨𝐫𝐢𝐞𝐬 𝐬𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐥𝐝 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐞𝐚𝐭 𝐩𝐞𝐫 𝐝𝐚𝐲?
📉 If your goal is to lose fat, multiply your current bodyweight in pounds by 11 and eat that many calories per day.
⚖️ If your goal is to maintain your current bodyweight, or experience some body recomposition, multiply your current bodyweight in pounds by 14 and eat that many calories per day.
📈 If your goal is to build muscle, multiply your current bodyweight in pounds by 17 and eat that many calories per day.
💥 𝘗𝘭𝘦𝘢𝘴𝘦 𝘬𝘦𝘦𝘱 𝘪𝘯 𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘥 that these multipliers are simply estimates of the total number of calories you should be eating per day to support your goals.
👉🏼 Realistically, you’ll need to accurately track your calorie intake and monitor changes in bodyweight to determine if you need to be eating fewer or more calories to support your goals at an optimal rate.

Mmm just look at those delicious omega-3s!!🤤🐟
Fish like this here beautiful tuna is an excellent, quality source of essential omega-3 fats. Essential means we must consume them as our body can’t make them on its own. Not too much of a problem, seeing as how many delicious packages of real foods there are we can enjoy while getting these necessary fats. Great omega-3 foods include seafood like tuna, salmon, shrimp, anchovies and catfish, flax, and walnuts.🐟🦐
Omega-3 fats, as you likely know, are beneficial for their ability to decrease inflammation in the body and to promote cardiovascular health. This means they can help you fight damage and inflammation resulting from oxidation from training or competition, and they can help your cardiovascular system run at its best while decreasing risk of disease development down the road.💪🏽🏃🏾♂️
So next time you enjoy some delicious seafood, you can feel great knowing you are giving your body serious functional fuel!🔥⛽️🐟

Common Food Tracking Mistakes
Why should you track your food? As Health Professionals, we preach shifting focus from dieting to rather optimal health via giving our body the proper foods it needs to grow, be nourished, and sustained. So why should we track?!? If we have a said goal yet seem to lack progress that can lead to frustration and a ‘throwing in the towel’ mentality. Having a log what we eat with how much offers insight and perspective on our habits, actions, and current health status. When I first started on my Nutrition journey, I would eat tons and tons of almonds; which are great for fat with some added protein BUT too much of a ‘good’ thing can still be bad in excessive amounts. Weighing, measuring, and tracking food can lead to positive results when done consistently.
1: Using Generic Food Choices
One small apple. One medium banana. What does it all mean? Use a food scale to weigh.
A serving size of PEANUT BUTTER is 16g = 1 tbsp. If I would use a regular tablespoon as a measuring utensil and “eyeball”, I may actually get 18g. If I do this every day for a week that is an extra 126 kcal, 7.5g Protein, 7.4g CHO, and 7g Fat not accounted for.
3: Not Logging
How many times have you eaten a meal and forgot to log it? Create a practice to log before you eat.
4: Scanning package
How many times have you scanned a food item and it only offered you a certain serving size in ounces of cups and not in grams? To eliminate any possible errors, I use the ‘Create Food’ option and input the macro breakdown and the grams per serving size so I will have the exact measurement I want.
5: Lack of Planning
When planning for a night out, alcohol, or a desert; input your whole day ahead of time to allow flexibility.
Tracking and logging food does not require perfection BUT rather consistency. Seek constant forward momentum rather than a string of ‘perfect’ days that start and stop. Consistency doesn’t mean messing up, it means never giving up.
How can you create consistency in the coming week?
makes about 4 servings
4 large sweet potatoes, or yams
fresh ground black pepper, to taste
2 Tbsps olive or avocado oil
1 tsp garlic powder
1 lb. lean grass fed ground beef, or turkey
1 white/yellow onion, diced
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
1 cup frozen organic corn, thawed or fresh 1 head of corn shred from its cob
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp paprika
1 (15 oz. jar) diced tomatoes, with juice
15 oz. black beans, drained and rinsed if using canned
sea salt to taste
Extra toppings: sliced avocado, halved cherry tomatoes, organic sour cream or plain Greek yogurt, shredded cheese, fresh chopped parsley or cilantro, lime wedges, etc.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees f. and line a large baking sheet (or two) with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
Cut the sweet potatoes into 1/2 inch fries, evenly as shown and place them into a large bowl.
Sprinkle fries with pepper and garlic powder, then drizzle with oil. Toss well to get all of your fries nicely coated.
Arrange in a single layer, with some space in between (so they can crisp up), on the baking sheets and bake for 20 to 25 minutes, flipping once during roasting time.
Meanwhile, heat a large (lidded) skillet over medium heat then add in your beef, onions and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently for about 6-7 minutes, or until meat starts to brown while breaking up the meat.
Add in seasonings, chipotle peppers, corn, black beans and diced tomatoes then gently stir to combine. Reduce heat to low, cover with a lid and simmer for 20 minutes to allow flavors to develop and chilli to thicken. Taste test, and add a sprinkle of sea salt if desired.
Sprinkle fries with sea salt when they come out of the oven.

10 Best Breakfast Foods for Weight Loss 💚👍
TAG-SAVE-SHARE with a friend who needs to see this
Forget donuts or drive-throughs. Starting your day with healthy breakfast foods can help you maintain energy, fend off hunger attacks and lose weight.
Research shows that regular breakfast eaters tend to be leaner and people are more successful at losing weight—and keeping it off—when they eat breakfast.
What's more, people who eat breakfast typically get more of some important nutrients, like fiber and vitamins (learn more about why fiber is so good for your weight and your health).
A healthy breakfast should be balanced and deliver a mix of protein, complex carbohydrates, fiber and healthy fat to keep you full and fueled up for your day.
Above are some of the best healthy foods to eat for breakfast to help you lose weight
Breakfast buffet - holidays 🤗
What’s your favorite option? 🍳🥞🍎🍯 I love both and sometimes it’s hard to chose. So, here is a little reminder on how different savory and sweet can be.
Savory on the left: 2 eggs omelette with mushrooms and tomato, tuna salad with corn, onion and coriander, smoked chicken breast, lettuce, tomato and grapefruit ✔️ Sweet on the right: 3 pancakes, 1 classic French crepe with blueberry jam, banana compote and nutella ✔️ Both options are fine, this post doesn’t encourage you to chose any, however if you have a specific goal in mind or you avoid any type of macronutrients, it’s good to know what’s on your plate. Savory option is 550 calories with very good macros. I love it because it fuels my body with the right amount of protein and fats in the morning. I have lots of energy after eating this combo, it keeps me full longer, I crave food less throughout the day and I can save my carbs for later 🍣🧁😁 Sweet option is 1100 calories that mainly come from carbs and fats. It’s full of sugar (109g 👀). It will make me feel sleepy right away and although the amount of calories is doubled comparing to savory one, I will be hungry earlier (it’s protein that helps you feel full longer and here you have only half of the amount of protein compared to the option on the left). So, as my brain mostly wants the savory option, my heart usually reaches out for the sweet one and that’s OK. Being on holidays should be relaxing and no additional stress over the food choices is needed 🙌🏼 A few days of overeating won’t ruin your progress 😎 It’s all about balance ♥️ PS. I loved my pancakes and crepes today 🥞🍫😍 #breakfast#nutrition#itsallaboutbalance#eatrealfood#eatbetternotless#mealprep#nutritionable#nutritiontips#macros
