Can Exercise Improve Your Sleep | Fast Weight Loss Tips Idea

Can Exercise Improve Your Sleep

The fact of the matter is that for many people, getting quality sleep, let alone fall asleep in the first place, is much harder than we think. Exercise is great for a host of health benefits, such as improving heart health with cardio and HIIT, to improving overall strength with resistance training.

Can Exercise Improve Your Sleep And time and time again it's been shown that exercise will also help with getting more shut-eye at night. But for those of you that need a bit more convincing, as if you already need more reasons to exercise, here’s some very real and clear evidence of the magical sleeping aid we call gain. First, understand that to invoke sleep, our body follows a near 24-hour cycle known as the circadian rhythm. Based on different cues and signals, this rhythm knows when to tell you when it’s time to go night night. One way in doing so is by raising body temperature.Through the circadian cycle, your body slowly increases in heat, reaching its highest temperature at night right before sleep. 

This, along with the lack of light, signals the body to increase the sleep-inducing hormone melanin. People struggling to sleep can use exercise as a way to actively increase body temperature in hopes to drive this signal. On top of that, a byproduct of burning more energy with exercise is raising levels of adenine, another hormone responsible for making you feel tired and sleepy. Another pesky thing that inevitably makes it harder to sleep is age. With age, the responses to sleep signals and the circadian cycle slows down. As we saw, exercise can help with that silly circadian guy and it does not discriminate with age.

In fact, a 6-month long study of elderly individuals partaking in a resistance training program not only saw a 38% improvement in sleep quality based on the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index, but the folks even saw an awesome 52% increase in upper body strength. Sleep better AND open pickle jars easier? That… that’s a win-win! Oh, and in case exercise alone is not good enough as you grow older, another study showed that engaging in weight training, walking, and more social activities improved sleep for older individuals better than doing any of the three alone. And for people that have the most trouble sleeping, like people with chronic insomnia, exercise has undoubtedly shown to improve sleep.

Exercise Improve Your SleepA study showed that as little as one exercise session was able to not only help people suffering chronic insomnia sleep faster, but also sleep longer. The exact reason why is not fully known, but possible reasons are one, the link to body temperature and the circadian rhythm as discussed before, and two, exercise can lower anxiety and depression symptoms, which is something that many with chronic insomnia suffer as well. Sleep better and be in a better mood. As far as the type of exercise, it seems that any type will undoubtedly improve sleep. We know resistance training improves sleep based on earlier studies and might make you rip a few sleeves. But studies show that, yes, cardio improves sleep as well. A representative study of over 2600 people of all ages performing at least 150 minutes per week of moderate to intense exercises, including cardio, on average reported a 65% improvement in sleep.

They even felt less sleepy during the early hours of the day! This is even more true for people with insomnia, as studies showed that low intensity exercises are much more effective than higher intensity. And the time you exercise matters, too. When you exercise in the morning, and especially outdoors, you’ll come in contact with more sunlight, which is a signal to the circadian cycle to increase wakefulness and lower sleep-inducing melanin levels. That means by working out early, you’ll feel more energetic throughout your day. Other studies have shown that you can also benefit from working out in the afternoon because at this time, you will be at your strongest. And you might have heard that working out at night will make your sleep worse, but luckily, that’s not true.

A study from the Journal of Sleep Research found that 35 minutes of exercise 2 hours before sleep did slightly increase heart rate during sleep, but it had no effect on sleep quality. In fact, exercise at night might help you sleep better by first raising your core body temperature and then quickly cooling you down, which is something that happens when you sleep. So choose a time to workout that’s best for you. At the end, exercise at any time will be better than exercising no time. With 40% of the population having sleep troubles, finding out ways to improve sleep is extremely important. And based on that, exercise seems like a no brainier.

So head to the gym, the park, the dance class, the garage, wherever you might be working out, and go get your gain and get your sleep. Good lifting and good night.

How To Avoid Weight Gain During The Holiday Season | Fast Weight Loss Tips Idea

How To Avoid Weight Gain During The Holiday Season

It’s finally that time again. The time of the year where we celebrate with our loved ones and…lie a little bit on our calorie counting app. Where three slices of turkey count as one. Pumpkin pie is the same as broccoli.
And egg nog has the same number of calories as water. If only we can run away from the impending caloric doom we call winter festivities. The harsh reality is that this time of year is a nightmare on gainz street. If you played your cards right, you should be bulking around this time anyway. Unfortunately for the majority of us, timing bulks isn’t in our dictionaries. So, what exactly can you do to avoid gaining weight gain  over the holidays? Now, the easy answer is to just stay below your calorie limit during the holidays.But, let’s… be real, that’s not going to happen.

What about using lower-calorie ingredients and recipes for this year’s holiday dinners? 

Possible, but not exactly a fun option, for you and everyone else. And… quite honestly, there shouldn’t be any changes whatsoever to your festive dinner plans. After all, the whole point of holiday dinners is to enjoy time with the people you love and enjoy the food you eat. Changing ingredients or the way you eat can make a joyous dinner into a joyless dinner. So, in order to keep holiday dinners intact and still avoid gaining weight, things surrounding it must be adjusted. One of which is your physical activity. 
As you draw closer to the holidays, start ramping up your exercises. Add a few more circuits to your MRT workouts, a few more minutes to your runs, or even a few more intervals on your HIIT sessions. The more days you add extra work, the more you can excuse yourself for stuffing your face. But as great as increasing exercise can be, nothing is more effective than controlling the food you eat. And frankly, it’s much easier than exercising more. Knowing that you have a lot of feasting ahead, eating less beforehand can offset the expected extra calories. But, of course, that doesn’t mean to just go on an insane crash diet. The more days you dedicate to eating less beforehand the better. If you estimate that you’ll be eating 5000 more calories throughout the holidays, for example, then offsetting that 5000 calories by eating 250 calories fewer each day for 20 days is better than forcing yourself to eat 1000 calories fewer for 5 days. At the end, really,

it all comes down to eating less and exercising more. OR… and hear me out here, you can just enjoy yourself and not worry about any of this. Quite honestly, 
a few pounds gained weight over the holidays is such a minor speck to the priceless time spent with your loved ones. It’s time to celebrate your accomplishments over the year and be proud of how far you’ve come. What’s a pound, two pounds, or even 5 pounds’ matter if it means you can’t enjoy yourself at a time in which it matters the most? Forget eating less than usual and forget working out more! Well, maybe you can use a few more workouts. But forget making your life more difficult and just be happy and enjoy… life. 

After all, you can just set it as part of your upcoming New Year’s fitness resolution, right? Well… that is if you finally stick through it this time.

Eat Junk Food and Lose Weight! WHAT? | Fast Weight Loss Tips Idea

Eat Junk Food and Lose Weight! WHAT

A nutrition professor from Kansas State University decided to go on a rather interesting diet, consisting mainly of nutty bars, powdered donuts, and twinkies. Dubbed the “Twinkie Diet,” he was able to lose 27 pounds in 10 weeks. The point he was trying to make is that if you wanted to lose weight, you just have to count your calories. Considering that he burns roughly 2600 calories per day, the professor decided to eat 1800 calories of mainly junk food daily. And voila, he did in fact lose weight, and anecdotally, proved that his hypothesis was true. You’re probably wondering,

I wonder if this would work for me?

The short answer is… yes. As dearth and unimaginable as it might sound, the theory behind calories in and calories out has been relentlessly shown to have some merit to it in many studies. And if you assume that calories simply mean the amount of food you eat, then it makes much more sense when you say,
“if you want to lose weight, you just need to eat less.” But it doesn’t mean that for people wanting to lose weight, they should be doing the same Twinkie Diet. Problem is, today’s media and society has become obsessed with the number on the scale that it blatantly ignores many other health factors. It just doesn’t boil down to a single number. In all honesty, doing such a diet is rather pointless. Yes, it’s true, that you can in fact lose weight eating nothing but junk. But you will do so at a cost…

…Such as the lack of nutrients. In terms of macros, junk food consists of heavy amounts of processed sugar and saturated fat. Two things of which, when consumed chronically or in excess, has been connected to health diseases such as atherosclerosis and type 2 diabetes. It’s also missing an abundance of protein, the number one macronutrient needed to build any considerable amount of muscle when paired with training. Worse yet, muscle breakdown during weight loss will increase since you don’t have enough protein to fend it off.

And don’t forget micronutrients. Vitamins and minerals, although not significant factors of weight loss, are still needed for good health and to prevent malnutrition. Vitamin and mineral deficiency is no joke, causing a wide range of health issues. Ahem, to name a few: Parasthesia, hypothyroidism, confusion, cheilosis aka lip fissures, fatigue, loss of memory, anemia, pale skin, depression, hair loss, rashes, numbness, cramps, decreased strength output, and, arrr scurvy. And the professor knew this can be an issue, and that’s why he was smart enough to at least supplement his junk food diet with a multivitamin supplement, a protein shake, and a good handful of veggies.

If we also truly look at how much junk food you’re allowed to eat versus healthy food on an 1800 calorie diet, you’ll see that you’re in for quite a starving experience. And again, you’ll probably want more than just losing weight. I’m sure most of you are looking to put on some muscle or at the very least, lose weight and get that elusive “lean” look. You can work out, of course, but much of your exercises will go to waste if you’re not giving your body enough protein to begin with, something that we know junk food is sorely lacking. In the short run, you might be able to get away with a junk food diet with very little negative impact to health.

But if you expect this to work in the long run, sorry to burst your bubblegum, it won’t pan out too well for you. So let’s revisit the question. If you ask, “Can you lose weight eating nothing but junk food?” The answer is factually yes. But if you ask “Is losing weight by eating nothing but junk food healthy? Then the answer is a big, fatty, no. What are some crazy diets you’ve tried?

Can This Coffee Help HACK Your Weight Loss Goals? | Fast Weight Loss Tips Idea

Can This Coffee Help HACK Your Weight Loss Goals?

You know, I heard about bulletproof coffee a few years back on a podcast, but the speakers quickly said it was pointless and won’t help you with losing weight. My thought was, “Sounds like just another fad that’ll disappear soon!” But, looks like I was wrong. Today, it seems like bullet proof coffee is popping up everywhere and even some of your favorite celebrities drink it. So, was the podcast wrong? Can Bulletproof coffee actually help you burn fat and lose weight?

First, what is bulletproof coffee?

The name is actually a trademarked under Dave Asprey, a marketer, self-titled “biohacker,” and owner of Bulletproof Executive. With Bulletproof Coffee, along with his Bulletproof Diet, he promises to help “upgrade” your life if you follow his plans and use his products. He’s kind of caught some heat recently about the… efficacy of his products, but the bulletproof coffee concept is still perceived positively by many.

So, let’s look at the ingredients: 1 cup of freshly brewed coffee 1-2 tablespoons of unsalted, grass-fed, butter And 1-2 tablespoons of MCT oil, a more concentrated version of coconut oil. Blend these three ingredients together and, BAM, you have bulletproof coffee. Dave Asprey says that you need HIS special blend of MCT oil and magical toxin-free coffee beans to make it work, but no research has ever proven that to be true. Now let’s dissect the reasoning for these ingredients. Unsalted, grass-fed butter is added because it contains higher levels of conjugated linoleic acid, aka CLA, which has been touted for being a fat-burning fatty acid.

The studies, unfortunately, saw little to no effect in weight or fat loss with CLA. And the study with the greatest effect only saw subjects lose on average 2.5 pounds in a span of… 4 months. MCT oil, on the other hand, is a bit trickier. MCT actually stands for medium-chain triglycerides. And because of its medium size, it can be quickly metabolized in the liver to provide energy and circulate ketone bodies, perfect for those needing an extra energy boost or seeking Ketosis. When it comes to studies, there is a trend for increased weight and fat loss with MCT oil. However, the only studies that saw results were done with overweight to obese subjects.

Average-sized populations failed to achieve any significant change. Even with the current evidence, there are plenty of people that claim bulletproof coffee indeed works, but not the way the initial research observed. The magic is actually all about making you feel full. If we look at satiety studies, there is definitely more supporting evidence for MCT oil and butter. In fact, that’s really the case for any fats, especially when you compare it to sugar, which does little in terms of fullness. By adding globs of butter and MCT oil to your morning coffee, you can hold off eating lunch well into the late afternoon. But, there is a catch… With the recommended 2 tablespoons of butter and MCT oil, you’re looking aaat… 435 calories for a single cup of coffee! That’s not only a lot of calories, but it’s also a lot of calories with little to no nutrients other than fat.

Even though a traditional small breakfast might not keep you full as long, it does offer a greater variety of vitamins, minerals, and protein. But if you ask me, I would personally suggest that, for those wanting to lose weight but tend to scoff down too much food in the morning, have an early lunch, or trying to stay in ketosis, then you should consider bulletproof coffee. You just have to plan the rest of your diet accordingly.

If you don’t think you’ll benefit from the added satiety, then skip it altogether. You’re better with a more nutritious meal. And, it’s probably time to change the name of it, too, as we now know, this coffee is anything but bulletproof. Maybe paleo coffee, or butter coffee, or MCTCLA coffee, or cocospresso?

4 Reasons You're Not Losing Weight | Fast Weight Loss Tips Idea

4 Reasons You're Not Losing Weight

It’s tough. You apply everything you’re learned and researched, yet when you step on the scale, nothing ever seems to change. It’s.. to say the least, disappointing. If you ask me, your weight shouldn’t mean much in the big picture. After all, two people of the same weight can look vastly different. 

A better indicator is to simply look at the mirror! But, I understand people still yearn for their weight to go down, perhaps due to exploitative fitness marketing constantly parading weight loss as THE sign of success. Regardless of how you choose to see it, let’s take a look at some of the reasons that might explain why you’re not losing any weight.

Number 1: You’re eating too little protein

Although typically you want to eat less during a weight loss diet, having more PROTEIN can help in two important ways: One, protein increases satiation and satiety more so than the other two macro nutrients, carbs and fats. You’ll feel full faster, translating to fewer calories consumed per meal, and you’ll feel full longer, delaying any additional calorie intake. Two, protein has a relatively high thermic effect of food, the amount of energy it takes to process the food you eat. For every 100 calories of protein consumed, roughly 30 calories are used in digestion. Carbs and fat take roughly 10 calories for every hundred. More protein means more calories burned, which means more weight lost. Of course, we can’t ignore protein’s role in muscle preservation, attenuating muscle breakdown commonly seen during long-term weight loss. 

Number 2: You’ve only lost water weight

One might see some initial rapid weight loss. But most of that early weight loss is likely attributed to water weight. This is especially true of diets where carbohydrates are the first to go, forcing the body to utilize more of its glucose storage, glycogen, notorious for its water retention. On top of any sodium reduction, which also retains water, or sweat-inducing exercises, the majority of your weight loss in the first 3 weeks is water. After that, if you cease to see any changes on the scale, then it’s time to re-tinker your plan to ensure that you are indeed in a calorie deficit, aka eat fewer calories than you burn, so that you continue losing weight, especially fat weight. 

Number 3: Under reporting your calories

Sometimes people are misguided by calorie counting because when they actually do it, they don’t see any results. But oftentimes, the calorie count is way off. Based on numerous research on the matter, under reporting calories is not only extremely common, but some have found people under reporting their calories by as much as 47%! They’re simply eating more than they think they are. Accurately report your calories or at least get close estimates and when you’re uncertain, always assume you’re eating more. Use apps like MyFitnessPal that can also make counting easier. Bear in mind, you still have to shoot for healthy choices to ensure that you’re getting enough protein and other micro nutrients.

number 4: Not lifting weights

Not lifting weights. Or… any form of resistance training. And, this might have more to do with losing the right weight. We’ve been told by numerous times that cardio cardio cardio, is the way to go for weight loss. As great as cardio might be for, well, your cardiac organ, aka your heart, it shouldn’t be your only weight loss tool. Undoubtedly, cardio can burn fat more so than lifting weights. One 2012 study in fact showed that, when compared to one another, cardio indeed is the benefactor of overall weight loss and even fat loss. But even though cardio resulted in the greatest amount of weight loss, it also negatively impacted lean mass. Resistance training, on the other hand, did the opposite, significantly INCREASING lean mass. So, if cardio is great for weight and fat loss, and resistance training is great for building muscle, 

What’s the best thing you can do? 

That’s right! Both, as clearly indicated in the study as well. When combining both, you truly get the best of both worlds. But, if you had to choose one, then I suggest you go with weights for the muscle improvements. 

Neither diet or more cardio will help in the muscle department. And that wraps up four potential reasons you’re not losing weight. I’m sure that you have encountered your own unique dilemmas, so please feel free to share some of them in the comments to help your fellow fitness junkies break through their weight loss plateaus.

Why Dieting Can Make You Gain Weight | Fast Weight Loss Tips Idea

Why Dieting Can Make You Gain Weight

I always thought that maybe a wedding would be the incentive I needed to lose weight, so when I got engaged, I decided to start looking into it. But after I did a little research, it quickly became clear that the best diet was actually no diet at all because it turns out, dieting can make you Gain Weight. (upbeat music) Yeah, diets have been around for hundreds of years and so you might think, well, it's time tested, hundreds of years, we gotta trust it. But you would be wrong, you'd be very wrong. So here's the science behind why dieting can make you gain weight

Body weight is regulated by the brain, and which is often resistant to extreme diet-based weight loss, so when you're on a diet, sure, initially you might lose weight, but likely you're gonna gain it back because your body's gonna make you. The hormone leptin plays an important role in our eating habits. This hormone combats our attempts at weight loss by signaling hunger. Basically, you scared your body because you starved it, and so your body is like, okay, bitch, I'm gonna start storin' up fat, so if you do this to me again, I'm gonna have some fat storage to be able to deal with that starvation. This is the called the classic starvation response. 

The brain responds to a loss of fat by increasing your hunger levels, so now you're more hungry, and you may eat more food, so if you're dieting, you are far more vulnerable to binge eating. Dieting can be stressful in itself, and stress hormones are linked to weight gain, especially in the belly area. Just so you can understand how silly diets are, I think it's best to look back on the dieting fads of yesteryear. The creator of graham crackers introduced a high fiber diet in the 1830s. 

We all know what happened, obviously, camping became big, we started eating s'mores. Graham crackers aren't that healthy when you put chocolate and marshmallow on them, but they are delicious. There was William Banting's low-carb diet from 1863. In 1903, it was popular for people to chew food 32 times in order to lose weight and digest food better, I guess? There's a lot more things you could do to lose those calories than just sittin' and chewin'. The cigarette diet debuted in 1925, and we all know how that went. Yeah, cigarettes, not so healthy. The grapefruit diet debuted in 1930, and it was popularized in Hollywood. The idea behind the grapefruit diet was that if you eat a grapefruit with every meal, you're gonna lose weight. I mean, I love grapefruits but does anyone love grapefruit that much? A grapefruit every meal, that's too much grapefruit. In 1934, the United Fruit Company began pushing the banana and skim milk diet. So you see the pattern here, people are trying to sell you things, and they're trying to sell you it by telling you, you're gonna lose weight with it. 

This is a pattern that repeats throughout time. On the Sleeping Beauty diet, which debuted in 1976, people were sedated for days in order to lose weight. Like Sleeping Beauty had an excuse, there was a curse put on her, but you just cursed yourself. Or maybe society cursed you into thinking you needed to lose weight by doing the Sleeping Beauty diet. The caveman diet came out in 1985 and that has morphed into what we know today as the Paleo diet, where you just eat a bunch of meat for some reason. The trendy diets of today are the Whole30, Paleo Diet, and the Keto Diet. Christine Clark, PhD, RDN, she cautions against diets that prohibit certain food groups, which, if you've ever tried a diet, is like, most of all diets. Dieters who avoid specific food groups lose out in the nutrients that are in those food groups. 

The Keto Diet is a high-fat, low-carb diet, which could result in inadequate levels of antioxidants, fiber, and vitamins. The Whole30 is an extremely restrictive diet. You have to eliminate dairy, beans, grains, sugar, alcohol. The diet's restrictiveness can make it unsustainable. If you're dieting and you're following an unsustainable diet, you're gonna fall back to bad habits. Our society is obsessed with skinniness for no reason. Skinny's not always been the ideal body type. Until the 1900s, curvy women were the ideal beauty standard in the U.S. and Europe. 

There was singer/actress Lillian Russell, who would be considered heavyset by today's standards. She was the ideal beauty in the late 19th century. During the turn of the century, the Gibson Girls set another body standard for women. The Gibson Girls were simultaneously curvy and fragile. They had thin waists, thanks to corsets, and large breasts, so that was also probably a crazy body type to try to emulate. In the 1940s and 50s, advertisers capitalized on the idea that women and who were skinny, were unattractive to men. These are real ads that were targeted at women to try to make them gain weight, which is just something that's completely unheard of today. 

There were these ads basically reinforced the idea that to find love, thin women have to gain weight. After World War II and into the 1960s, we had Marilyn Monroe, who had a very full figure, and was considered the ideal beauty at the time. In the 1960s, that's when thinness started to come into vogue, first with Twiggy and Audrey Hepburn. Then in the 1990s, ultra-thin heroin chic was popularized by models like Kate Moss.

Basically, beauty standards change all the time, and currently being a little skinny thing is very unrealistic for most people. You can be healthy when you're slightly overweight, according to society's standards. You know what, all these crazy fad diets. Eat healthy, exercise, sleep, watch your stress levels, and be happy in your body 'cuz your body's perfect the way it is, and honestly trying to change it, might just be worse in the long run.
