Late night show Revealed some New Things about Weight Loss

Monday, February 11, 2013

The show started with an overweight female who was asked to keep a a food diary and she also kept a video of herself. She was supposed to stay within a 2,000 calorie range .She was always wondering why she hadn't lost weight. She ate healthy fruit for breakfast and recorded everything carefully. The experiment showed she was way over on her fruit portion sizes for breakfast. And there was always a little bit here and there she did not record. She was eating 3,000 calories . Thus she stayed overweight.

They also did an experiment with three groups over time . One at a high carb breakfast, One a high fat and one a high protein. The group who ate a higher protein breakfast stayed fuller longer.

What I learned on the third experiment I didn't know. they had some people drink water with their meal and some the water was blended in a blender with the meal. The group with the water blended in stayed fuller longer.

Three lessons learned.

1. Be true to myself with my food record.
2. The importance of protein in my diet.
3. The importance of water in my diet.

    It is very easy to misjudge portions, so it is something that you have to be careful about. I think that is one of my big problems.

    The blender proves that soups or smoothies will keep you full for longer than the same ingredients washed down by a glass of water. I've seen the same experiments done in England. Another is that the dairy fat contained in full fat milk, stops you absorbing fat from other sources. So that users of full fat milk actually absorb less fat per day than skimmed and semi skimmed fat milk users.
