A hefty dose of seaweed-important antioxidants like beta-carotene and echinenone, both of which help curb cravings and fight illness.
The levels of beta-carotene found in Hawaiian Spirulina, suppress cholesterol levels (great news for your heart), and the high levels of iron improve weakness and fatigue so you have enough mojo for your next workout. Meditating for six weeks-or more, could decrease your frequency of binge-eating episodes (like, meaning to eat just a handful of tortilla chips but devouring the whole bag) by over 50 percent. Bone broth-bouillon as a broth, it’s loaded with powerful anti-inflammatory nutrients. Not to mention it’s in soup form, which studies show, helps you cut down on portion sizes, and it’s filling, so you’re less likely to crave not-so-healthy snacks later.
Forget apples (okay, not really) – avocados reign supreme when it comes to weight loss. They’re rich in monounsaturated heart-healthy fat, and studies show eating just half of one with lunch can curb your appetite. Yes, all couples fight. But it’s the ones that know how to work through their disagreements that have better marriages… and better bodies. “Research has shown that cortisol, the hormone that’s released during stressful activity, is linked to fat storage. And poor communication between couples is the most common type of stress that you tend to experience.”
We all have an Achilles heel: the one food or meal that we can’t seem to help digging into. Taking the time to visualize that food multiple times throughout the day as research shows, doing so makes you actually want it less. When that theory was put to the test, scientists found that those who repeatedly imagined their guilty-pleasure foods, reduced their calorie consumption of that food by as much as 50 percent. When it comes to losing belly fat, using any old oil just won’t do. Medium-chain triglycerides (or MCT’s), like coconut oil or avocado oil, are a unique form of fat that require less energy and enzymes to be digested. “And unlike other dietary fats, MCT’s don’t get stored as fat in the body; they get burned for energy.”
