eLifestyle’s 5 Obesity Prevention Strategies For Success!

  1. Make sure you’re getting enough sleep. Eight hours is the general requirement to enable the body to relax and relieve work related stress, along with exercise related stress.
  2. Keep healthy snacks on-hand. This will keep you energized throughout the day.  However, cut out late-night snacking which tends to increase as the days get shorter.
  3. Think Long-Term. Make proper goals and assess them regularly. As you reassess your goals make sure they’re realistic and that you have a plan to get you there.
  4. Not all goals are weight-related. Focus on how you want to feel when you play with your kids or the time you’re shooting for in that 10K race next spring.

7 Tips For Eating Right to Avoid Obesity!

Why is The Glycemic Index (GI) Important to Focus On?

We hear many obesity stories, and one of the most common ones is in our obesity support group on Facebook: that people are confused about is just what to eat for weight loss. One important guideline to follow is to consume carbohydrates that have a low glycemic index, this is important at any stage of your weight loss or weight maintenance plan, but particularly important when you are trying to prevent obesity. Controlling your blood sugar levels is of paramount importance.


What Is The Glycemic Index?

Not all carbohydrate foods are created equal. In fact, they behave quite differently in our bodies. The glycemic index or GI describes this difference by ranking carbohydrates according to their effect on our blood glucose levels. Choosing low GI carbs – the ones that produce only small fluctuations in our blood glucose and insulin levels – is the secret to long-term health. Doing so will reduce your risk of heart disease and diabetes, and is the golden key to sustainable weight loss!


How to Switch to a Low GI Diet

The basic technique for eating the low GI way is simply a “this for that” approach –  i.e. swapping high GI carbs for low GI carbs. You don’t need to count numbers or do any sort of mental arithmetic to make sure you are eating a healthy, low GI diet.


7 Basic Tips to Avoid Obesity:

  1. Use breakfast cereals based on oats, barley and bran
  2. Use breads with whole grains, stone-ground flour, sour dough
  3. Reduce the amount of potatoes you eat
  4. Enjoy all other types of fruit and vegetables (Fruit in controlled amounts to avoid too much simple sugar)
  5. Use Basmati or Doongara rice
  6. Enjoy whole grain pasta, noodles, quinoa
  7. Eat plenty of salad vegetables with a vinaigrette dressing
