Models Direct: Health Tips for 2015
January is the month of the year in which we all sign up to the local gym, hire a trainer, and then give up by February! Models Direct know how hard it is to keep on top of your health and fitness when trying to balance a dozen things in your daily life. Sometimes there just isn't the time! Have you set your self a weight loss target for 2015? Models Direct noticed that trying to lose the last few pounds can be the most agonising time of any diet and we leave ourselves open to disappointment with every time we stand on the scales. Half of all women say that they put on any weight they lose from a diet within six months of stopping it. Why could this be? What role do eating habits have in your life?
If you are the kind of person who isn’t too bothered about what or when you eat, but still maintain a slim figure, then you were very fortunate on the old DNA lottery! What and when are the main points here. Our bodies are creatures of habit. They like routine, they know what time it is better than your brain does, and they get upset when things change. How odd do you feel as your body clock adjusts to an extreme jetlag? It makes no sense to the brain, but the body is readjusting to the new cycle of day, night and food intake. Studies on rats fed the same number of calories at different times of the day had startling results. Rats who ate over the longest period of the day, 15 hours, put on weight, and those who could only eat for a third of the day lost weight. Bearing in mind that all rats ate the same amount during 24 hours, for one week, isn’t this surprising? Our bodies have different tendencies at different times of the day. If you eat in the evening you are much more likely to automatically lay down fat reserves. If you don’t eat breakfast, this is also true. Keeping a regular eating routine and not snacking or having late dinners in the evening will help you maintain or lose weight.
