someone’s mental well-being and if it’s not done the right way it can lead to binging or even just giving up if you are interested in losing weight but aren’t sure how to go about doing it or getting started it may be a good idea to seek advice from a medical health professional dietician physical trainer or nutritionist now that you know what drinks you should consume before bed to help you lose weight here’s what happens to your body when you drink milk every day most babies start their lives out getting their nutrition from the milk their mother provides then as you grow you are continued to be told to drink your milk in order to grow big and strong milk is rich in calcium so many people include it and other dairy products in their daily lives but what actually happens when we drink milk are we supposed to keep drinking milk into adulthood or is it something only meant for babies or calves there have been several studies done on the importance of milk including one by the Harvard University and dairy Education Board there are also some people who believe that drinking milk regularly is good for the body and think that dairy is important and there are others who think that milk is a deadly poison there’s even an entire website dedicated to anti milk called nut milk calm which features tons of articles pointing out the supposed evils of milk however there are still facts pointing towards milk and dairy products being beneficial to our health milk can help you lose weight nutritionists Alan Aragon MS finds that people can still thrive on milk whether it be build muscle or lose fat in an article he wrote for Men’s Health magazine he points out some of the facts and theories that cause certain people to cut milk out of their diets one claim suggests that milk from cows has cancer-causing hormones after going through research on anti milk claims as well as being aware of the pro milk propaganda he’s come up with a few answers about the regular consumption of the beverage he points out that in a six-month study conducted at the University of Tennessee the research found that overweight people who drank three servings of milk a day lost more belly fat than people who followed a similar diet but didn’t drink as much milk research also found that calcium supplements don’t work as well as drinking milk this is because there are other compounds in milk and other dairy products that can better assist with burning fat though this has to be paired with a good diet drinking a bunch of milk and eating junk food will most likely not result in a healthy weight loss milk helps build muscle milk is also good for building muscle according to Aragon in fact milk is one of the best muscle foods on the planet he writes the protein in milk is 20% whey and 80% casein whey is a fast digesting protein that quickly breaks down into amino acids to be absorbed by the bloodstream in casein is digested slower milk is good for bone health milk is widely believed to be good for the teeth and bones due to it being a good source of vitamin D milk can relieve stress and heartburn it’s also known to help reduce stress and relieve heartburn everyone knows to reach for a glass of milk if they ate something too spicy the thick cool beverage coats the esophagus and helps alleviate the burning sensations milk controversy some scientists suggest that milk taken from cows who have been given antibiotics can lead to antibiotic resistance to those who drink it which would make antibiotic medicine less effective however this theory has never been proven Aragon also touches on the fear surrounding drinking milk from cows who have been given hormones when the use of growth hormone rb/gh was approved it caused controversy the same hormone boosts the insulin-like growth factor in milk which is a hormone that has been linked to cancer he explains it the only way this hormone can become cancer-causing is if it’s injected so even though none of the chemicals will be transferred if you drink milk from hormone treated cows it’s also important to keep in mind that hormones aren’t good for the cows whether you’re going to continue drinking milk or you’ve started to question its benefits there are a ton of other foods rich in calcium that you can try you can grab a kale salad eat some oranges or soy beans or you can switch to an alternate milk beverage such as soy or rice ice milk why don’t you think about these bedtime drinks do you drink milk on an everyday basis let us know in the comments section below enjoyed this video hit the like button and share

Scientific Weight Loss Tips

We all want to lose fat and stay healthy but with all these diet pills and plans what does science have to say about weight loss tips let’s get the obvious out of the way first exercise not only does the physical act of exercise burn calories immediately science has recently found that it continues to burn fat while you sleep during exercise your body uses up most of its available carbohydrates for energy and replaces them over the next 24 hours in the meantime it begins to break down your fat stores for basic functions such as walking talking and even sleeping don’t skip meals especially breakfast we explained in our last video the science behind appetite when you starve yourself your body and brain create intense urges to eat high-calorie foods as opposed to healthy options breakfast specifically helps to keep blood sugar and hormone levels regular and gives your metabolism a boost to burn more calories through the day adding more protein and low-fat dairy to your diet helps as well protein induces a large release of the chemical pyy which goes to the brain and suppresses hunger signals simply adding 10% more protein to your food can keep you full much longer low-fat dairy on the other hand contains calcium which binds to other fats you’ve eaten and creates a soup like substance which can’t be absorbed instead your body excretes the soup and with it more of the fat you consumed speaking of soup it’s perhaps one of the best-kept dieting secrets when you drink a glass of water with your meal the fluid is easily absorbed before your food is digested which quickly brings down the stomach size making you feel hungry take that same meal and puree it in a blender and the fluids have a much harder time being absorbed quickly this means your stomach stays expanded making you feel full for longer count your calories studies show that people who actively document their food intake by using a journal have drastic improvements over those who dump furthermore knowing a coffee has 10 calories but a cappuccino is 100 gives you the opportunity to structure your diet to eat and more while taking in less calories and while it may seem trivial reducing your plate size can drastically change your food intake studies show that a simple change from 12 to 10 inches can reduce the amount of food you eat by up to 22% our bodies have a hard time turning down food of us even when we’re full so the less food on your plate the better finally sleep and stress play a large factor in how much we eat both sleep deprivation and stress levels increase appetite making it harder to keep off the pounds got a burning question you want answered ask it in the comments or on Facebook and Twitter and subscribe for more weekly science videos

What Do You Do When You Hit a Weight Loss Plateau?

And in breaking news, contrary to popular belief, ciabatta is a type of bread, not a a workout method. News at 11. Hey what’s up guys, it’s Scott. I just wanted to do a really quick check in today because I’m a little bit frustrated and I need your help. I’ve been super diligent about my nutrition this week, counting my calories and I even started working out. A couple of you had recommended that I try this new exercise routine called ciabatta. Ciabatta. Tabata. Tabata. So anyway, I have been doing Tabata exercises in the mornings and really feeling it throughout the day by the way, so thanks for that. I’ve also been really keeping track of my calories. I’ve been keeping them at around the 1500-1600 calorie range for the day which for a guy my size is pretty significantly small. I’ve limited my carbs most days so I’m staying around the 50-60 gram mark.

Not cutting it out completely but still keeping it within that range. I’m doing all these things that in the past have really helped me to lose weight and for some reason in the last couple of days, I have just stalled. There are a couple of things that might be contributing to it. The first thing is that I think it might just be a scale calibration issue. Normally my scale is pretty consistent. I’ll step on it 3 times and I’ll get the same value 3 times, but in the past couple of days I’ll step on it one time and get one value and then I’ll step on it another time and get a value that is like 3 pounds higher and then step on it a third time and get a value that is like a pound and a half lower. It’s really, really tough because I don’t know what to trust. I don’t know if the floor in my bathroom is just not level or if the scale is kind of on the fritz, but I think it’s safe to say that I have effectively stalled.

I haven’t really seen any weight loss in the past couple of days even though I am feeling better in general and I know that all of the inputs are right on. I know that plateauing is a natural part of weight loss and it’s to be expected, but I’m a little bit concerned because when I have plateaued in the past it was after a longer period of time and it was after a more significant amount of weight loss so this is definitely the earliest plateau that I have ever experienced and I’m not quite sure how to break through it.

There are a couple of things that I have been researching on the interwebs that might be able to help. The first solution that I’ve come across is something called calorie cycling, which as I understand it is just being a little more liberal with your calorie intake for a day so that your body doesn’t go into starvation mode. I’m also ready the 4 Hour Body. So Tim Ferris is a proponent of just complete and total debauchery for one day a week, which I don’t know if I’m comfortable doing, but same kind of principal. You know your body gets confused into thinking that you’re not in starvation mode but it’s the same kind of thinking. Basically you vary up your calorie intake for a limited period of time so your body doesn’t go into full fledged starvation mode.

The other advice I have gotten on the internet is completely contradictory – it’s on the other side of the equation. It’s something called interval fasting where for a period of about 24-36 hours you just don’t eat solid food at all. This is also supposed to reset your body so you kind of just bust through the plateau. So there’s a guy on YouTube by the name of John Calvo who went from super, super obese to actually being a pretty normal weight now and he used interval fasting or intermittent fasting as a way to kind of break through those plateaus. Obviously that one is a little bit harder to do, but if it’s effective, I am willing to try it. I know there are a lot of people who will say, don’t even look at the scale just go by the way your clothes fit. Go by the way you feel, but the problem with those things is that my OCD brain just cannot get myself to celebrate in those things. It’s going to be a while before my clothes start fitting any better, and to be honest I don’t know if my jeans are more comfortable because I have work them a couple of times without washing them or because I have actually lost some weight.

I definitely need a metric that is quantitative that can take on a daily or every other day basis that really gives me some sort of sense of how I’m performing and I feel like weight is the best way to accomplish that. Now that being said I am going to start doing things like taking measurements and measuring total inches lost on maybe a weekly, bi-weekly, monthly basis. I don’t know how long it’s going to take to see measurable results for that metric because it’s not something that I’ve been consistent about, but I do think that that’s a better metric overall.

Today I think what I’m going to do is ratchet up my calorie intake just a little bit. I’m at the 1500-1600 mark right now. My Fitness pay is saying that I should shoot for low 2000’s like 2100, something along those lines. Maybe I’ll push it to closer to 2000 and see what happens for today. That’s my plan for the day. If you guys have any other suggestions, please leave me a comment. I’d really love to know especially if you have any kind of research to back your opinion or your observation. That’s really good because the academic in me just wants to review all of that. If this is your first time watching one of these videos and you want to see if I’m able to power through this plateau in the future, go ahead and subscribe and you’ll get updates every time I post a new video. That’s it. I’ll read over the comments and hopefully I’ll have some positive results to share with you guys on my weight loss check in on Monday.

Alright, thanks guys. .

Tracking for Weight Loss | Week 2 Weigh-In

Uh, gridlock! So today is Monday which means of course that it’s time for another weight loss update. I’ve got some good news to share for this week. You might recall from my last weight loss update video at the beginning of last week I was 3lbs and when I stepped on the scale this morning, I was 3lbs which means, I lost 5 lbs this week. All in all that’s lbs since I started trying to lose weight so I am officially in the double digits which is a big milestone for me, and it marks the third consecutive week of sustained weight loss which is also some good news. So as far as what I am going to stop start and continue this week, I am going to start making a conscious effort to take a walk and get out of the office during my lunch break and also just taking some short breaks throughout the day. I’ve been looking at my step count on my UP Move recently and it’s just been awful. I am almost completely sedentary. I barely get any steps on a day to day basis and I know I’m going to have to start incorporating some exercise if I want to be able to sustain this weight loss moving forward.

I am also going to start tracking other health related metrics. I just bought a Withings Scale and I recorded an unboxing video which I’ll post later this week, but I’m going to start using that to track things like my body fat percentage and resting heart rate and things like that just to get a better picture of my overall wellness situation. One of the things I’m going to stop doing this week is that I’m going to stop eating carbs or at least severely limit the amount of carbs that I am eating. I am hoping to shoot for less than 50 grams of carbs per day. That’s really going to be dependent on what they bring in for lunch at work, but I will try to come prepared with a backup meal just in case it’s a carb explosion or something like that.

As far as what I am going to continue this week, I’m just going to continue doing everything else. It seems like it’s working and so no real reason to change up that formula. Hopefully I’ll be able to post some losses this week as well. As always, if you’re new to the channel, please click subscribe if you want to stay on top of any future updates that I might post and if you’re on your own weight loss journey, I would love to hear in the comments below just about how you’re doing. What are the things you’re doing that seem to be working? Okay, thanks guys. .
