4 Ways To Stop Overeating

Ways To Stop Overeating

Hello All!!!

Are you guilty of overeating? When you munch on food mindlessly, you are more likely to wreck havoc on your internal hunger cues. Many people don’t even seem to realize that they are consuming more than what their body needs.

Research, on the other hand, says that when you pay complete attention to your plate, you can actually lose weight and lower your chances of developing type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

So all set to get rid of the habit of eating like zombie? Hop on to discover ways to stop overeating.

1) Turn off the television

One simple way of doing away with zombie eating is to turn your television off while having a meal and separating your dining area from your entertainment room. Control your urge to settle on your couch for a dinner with your TV. The dining area ambience should be such that it reminds you that you are going to have your meal. This way you will register each bite.

2) Don’t let conversations while eating distract you

It usually happens that you are happily chatting with friends and having your lunch. You get into an interesting conversation and forget the amount of appetizers you just gulped down. What you should do is put in a speed breaker in your meal. Visualize your meal in half and when you hit that point, just pause for a bit and ask yourself if you are enjoying your food or are almost full. This way you can keep a tab on your consumption.

3) Take meal breaks at your workplace

Do you know that having your meal at your desk is disastrous for your waistline? Just don’t give excuses that you don’t have the time to spare for a lunch hour while you are at work. Remember multitasking is a myth!

If you cannot head to the canteen for lunch, search for a place away from your work desk. Even if that is not possible, turn yourself away from your computer screen and files. Just give complete focus to what you are eating.

4) Keep a check on what you drink while driving

No, I am not talking about alcohol. Because if you do so, you will be caught by the traffic police! Most people have the habit of enjoying their favourite coffee or smoothie while driving. This mindless drinking can happen when you are bored, have a long way to go or are stuck in traffic (this happens almost every day). What people don’t understand is that what you are drinking is loaded with sugar!

If you can’t give up the habit of drinking something while driving just change the choice of your beverages. It is that simple. So, the next time you sit to drive, carry low calorie beverages with you like green tea, unsweetened green juice or unsweetened black coffee.

Overeating can be silenced once and for all if you are determined to do so. The above tips can be of help if you really want to get rid of zombie eating.

Detox Foot Bath – Does it work?

Does A Detox Foot Bath Work?

Hello All!!!

In the recent past, detox foot bath has been a rage. Everyone wants to get detoxified by dipping their feet in an ionic foot bath machine filled with water. Now, how true can this be? Let us explore the claims made and understand the science behind a detox foot bath.

Detox foot bath – The claim

Detox foot baths claim that by soaking your feet in water in the machine, you can get rid of all the impurities in your body. Sounds too good to be true! The demonstrations made are rather too dramatic and may seem impressive if you have no knowledge of chemistry!

When you watch the videos of these detox foot bath machines at work, you will see a person dipping his or her feet in a tub of warm water with salt added. Through it is passed a mild electric current. It is claimed that with the help of the current the toxins are removed from the body.

The water changes colour when the current is passed. It turns blue, brown or green. There can also be tiny solid particles or gas bubbles in the water. This is said to be the evidence of the fact that your body has been cleared of impurities.

The truth

It is a plain chemical reaction between the saltwater and the electrodes. The colour that appears is just due to electrolytic corrosion. The metal electrodes are made up of copper, iron or nickel. On decomposition, these metals produce coloured ions. It is the combination of electric current and salt that causes the decomposition.

The electrolytic conversion causes the formation of gases and hydrogen bubbles. A strong alkaline solution is produced that softens dead skin on the feet and causes it to come off as flakes. These are the floating solids visible in the water. Apart from that, creams and lotions are applied to the feet prior to the foot bath to prepare the skin. These too can turn semisolid and float in the water.

Is a detox foot bath of any use?

This kind of a treatment provides the same amount of benefits as a normal soaking of feet in warm salt water does. Buying these so called ‘miracle’ devices is only going to burn a big hole in your pocket.

Simply soaking your feet in warm water is a great way to rejuvenate yourself. You should do that often to unwind after a hectic day at work. You don’t need those expensive detox foot bath machines at all. The soles of your feet cannot get rid of toxins. It is not possible. You can instead spend the money on healthy food so that your liver and kidneys work fine because they are the ones who remove toxins from your body. I hope I have cleared up everything.

The bottom line

Don’t fall prey to marketing gimmicks of companies selling detox foot bath machines. You cannot detoxify your body through the soles of your feet. Toxins don’t get removed this way!

IWB Weight Loss Program Transformation Story –  Meet Meetu Singh

It really feels great to be back writing for my blog and it is always a super feeling when you are writing about someone’s weight loss success story.

As you all know in the month of September we launched a weight loss support group on Facebook Indian Weight Loss Coach.

IWLC, Weight Loss Program Transformation

This group was an effort to help all those people who wanted to lose weight but needed someone to be accountable to. Within no time there were some serious people joining in and some of them wanted to go for a professional weight loss program which we were already running. In the past three years we have helped so many clients in losing weight, some clients give up the effort in between while some are so consistent that the end result gives us satisfaction and joy.

Today I am introducing Ms Meetu Singh who achieved her target of losing 10 kg weight in two months. Please follow Meetu Singh’s weight loss program transformation story…

It was in September when we started IWLC group on Facebook that I received Meetu’s message that she wanted to lose weight but there were certain health issues due to which she wasn’t able to do so. I had always known Meetu to be someone who was very particular about her evening walks and was surprised to know that she was still struggling with her weight issues.

meetu before, Weight Loss Program Transformation

Here was this woman 42 years old, 74.5 Kg, 5’1.5” suffering from Hypothyroid and High Blood Pressure. She was on medication for both the health issues. Despite being a healthy eater she was not able to lose weight. In her own words,“Though I always kept a watch on my weight yet, somehow with hypothyroid, it sneaked in. 8 years ago, I had lost some weight, which came back and refused to budge.  Then I was introduced to this weight loss support group on Facebook, ‘IWLC’, and I started following diet plans as well as workout ideas suggested there by the admins. I started eating better and had fun cooking better. I lost a few kilos just by following the group. From 74.5kg I reached 71.8 kg when I decided to go for a customized weight loss program.”

Meetu joined a Two Month long IWB Weight loss program in October 2016. At that point, she was 71.8 kg. She knew that with her being on thyroid medication it would difficult to achieve a lot of weight quickly. She was with us for two months during her consistent and inspiring weight loss journey.

Meetu after1, Weight Loss Program Transformation

In her words,”I lost weight consistently with the help of my mentor, who helped me with workouts and diet feedback. I was provided customized plans with multiple options for each meal, need based Detox plans, instant guidance through WhatsApp. I was helped to make healthy food choices whenever I had to attend or organize a party, which incidentally is a part of my daily life.”

Online Doctor Consultation – Making Healthcare Convenient!

Online Doctor Consultation

Online shopping does tempt us all to buy goods online, most of them which are available at jaw dropping deals. From clothes to accessories, there is a lot to shop online.

The e-commerce industry has changed the scenario of shopping completely. It saves time, energy and of course fuel! Time is money these days and there is no point in spending hours shopping at stores when you can get everything at the comfort of your home.

Okay, now, what do you do when you are sick? You visit the doctor, obviously! In spite of an appointment, you have to wait in the queue for long hours, isn’t it? The long waiting time for your appointment may not be comfortable for many. For most, it may become annoying when the doctor turns up late. To avoid the long waits, you can now consult the doctor online!

online doctor consultation

This is a big revolution in the healthcare field. Doctors are now more easily available to you when you fall sick. You only need an active internet connection to be able to talk to the doctor. When online doctor consultation was made available by Ask Apollo, the word ‘online’ seemed quite intriguing to me.

Finally, the day had arrived when I could get rid of the tension of travelling to doctor’s clinic and waiting in never ending queues.

Let me share the experience of Mr. Amit with online doctor consultation.

Mr. Amit just went to the website to seek consultation. The next step was a detailed face-to-face (or rather screen to screen) video conversation with the doctor about health and proper guidance was given. Only after proper consultation, the prescription was sent to him. Convenience is the USP of online doctor consultation.

Benefits of Ask Apollo Online Doctor Consultation

  • Can consult the doctor at any hour of the day from anywhere. It hardly matters whether you are in Chennai or Los Angeles, the doctor is available round the clock on all days.
  • Specialists are present on a single platform. You can meet any specialist you need, right from a dermatologist to a gastroenterologist.
  • You may speak to the doctor with the help of a video call. Besides, there are options of communicating through a voice call and email too.
  • You don’t need to run around to talk to the specialist. So, online doctor consultation is certainly hassle free.
  • You may consult the doctor from the comfort of your home.
