(Reuters) – As Americans debate what is most to blame for the nation’s obesity epidemic, researchers say they have the strongest evidence yet that sugary drinks play a leading role and that eliminating them would, more than any other single step, make a huge difference.
Three studies published Friday in the New England Journal of Medicine represent the most rigorous effort yet to see if there is a link between sugar-sweetened beverages and expanding U.S. waistlines.
“I know of no other category of food whose elimination can produce weight loss in such a short period of time,” said Dr. David Ludwig, director of the New Balance Foundation Obesity Prevention Center at Boston Children’s Hospital, who led one of the studies. “The most effective single target for an intervention aimed at reducing obesity is sugary beverages.”
Eat several small meals throughout the day
Eating small, well balanced meals regularly throughout the day is an excellent way to crush cravings and keep your metabolism fired up. When you skip meals, it sends a signal to a primitive part of your brain that food is in short supply, and this causes your calorie burning to slow down. On the same note, eating small meals frequently lets your body know that calories are abundant and its ok to go ahead and burn them!
Substitute Greek yogurt for sour cream!
Greek yogurt is an excellent high protein, low fat, low carbohydrate food that is also a great source of probiotics! It can be substituted for sour cream in most recipes.
Example: Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip
Mix 1 container of unflavored fat free Greek yogurt with 1 packet of powdered ranch seasoning. Serve with fresh veggies or toasted pitas! This easy to make guilt free snack is sure to satisfy!
When you look at this map, it becomes clear why health problems such as type II diabetes and heart disease increase year after year. The rising obesity epidemic is a serious threat to the health of our nation.
Don’t let yourself become a statistic, with a proper nutrition and supplementation program we can all do our part to battle this growing problem by staying fit and maintaining a healthy weight!
Eat more fresh food, and cut processed foods out of your diet!
Cutting processed food out of your diet can make a huge difference for a weight loss plan. Not only are processed foods usually dense in calories, they also lack the vitamins and minerals that fresh foods offer. Industrial processing destroys most of the food’s natural nutrients, and potentially harmful chemicals are added to many processed foods as well. So next time you buy groceries, remember to keep it fresh!
Cut soda and other sugary beverages out of your diet completely!
One can of soda contains about 40 grams of sugar. If you drink one soda every day for a year, that’s 14,600 grams of sugar. That comes out to 58,000 calories. When you see the numbers, it becomes clear that cutting out that daily soda can go a long way to achieving your weight loss goals!
