Weight Loss Foods Foxboro - Stay FIT with what you EAT

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, May 08, 2014

Weight Loss Foods FoxboroThe food we eat are the nutritional powerhouse that keeps our body healthy. But what are really the best foods for weight loss? The list would be long if we wrote it in its entirety! So instead, here are some tips on maximizing your food to stay healthy and maintain that perfect figure:

Right amount, right kind

Choosing the right amount and the right kind of food will go a long way. Doing simple math, you have to eat fewer calories than you can burn. You should also eat less as nighttime approaches.

Break the fast

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day as it ‘breaks the fast’ after a long sleep. Breakfast also jump starts your metabolism. There are a lot of best breakfast foods for weight loss like eggs and omelets which help you trim inches.

Fiber-rich foods

Fiber-rich foods are good for digestion. Oats are healthy and raw fruits have more fiber. So instead of juicing fruits, try chewing them. This way, it signals the brain that you have eaten enough to make you feel full, causing you to eat less.

Feel full, longer

Eating foods that make you feel full longer stops you from eating more. These foods are those that are slow to digest such as beans. Cut back the calories and eat vegetables, they add low-calorie bulk to a tasty dish!

Sweets First

Drinking water 30 minutes before eating your meal can really affect your diet. But often you want to eat something sweet? Try dark chocolate (in small doses) or fruits. This way, you are more full before the main course, and you burn these calories first. Also munching nuts, though not sweet, is proven to make you eat less at meals.

No place for JUNK

Salt and sugar make you eat more. So start saying no to eating junk food including soft drinks. Instead, try eating salad or fruits and vegetables. Replace soda with milk.

Make a weight loss food plan and keep track of what you eat. A balanced diet should be paired with proper exercise. Contact Answer is Fitness for more information.

Why Yoga is the Best Exercise as You Age - Foxboro

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Why Yoga is the Best Exercise as You Age1. Balance. In yoga class, you'll wind up doing a lot of balancing postures. In the balance poses the trick is to relax into the balance -- a lesson for life and a lesson as you age. Forcing things will not work and you'll likely be so tense that you'll never stand on that one foot. A lot of older Americans have trouble with balance. The more you balance now, the better off you'll be later.

2. Lubricate your joints. This is a term for one of the benefits of yoga. After a yoga class, your joints feel lubricated, and it's true. It's like the tin man must have felt after he got his hit of oil. After spending decades sitting in an office chair old bodies need to move around to loosen up and to oil those joints. Yoga is the next best thing to a squirt of that oil.

3. Strength. Muscle mass declines as you age. It's a proven fact. But rather than go to a gym and lift weights, why not work on many of the muscles in your body. Yoga does just that. Your triceps will get bigger and stronger, not from free weights but from doing chaturangas over and over again. It's the same for all those others muscles. You'll feel the burn in your quads and elsewhere.

4. Peace of mind. Some of this comes with age anyway, but why not put down that damned smartphone for 90 minutes and get on the mat. You'll live much longer.

Weight Loss Advice - Foxboro

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, April 09, 2014

Weight Loss AdviceSpring is finally here and we are all looking forward to the nicer weather. But if the thought of warm weather has you trying to lose weight, here is some advice.

Mix up the workout: Don't avoid strength training if you want to lose weight. The best way to lose weight is a combination of cardio and strength training to increase muscle mass. Increasing muscle will increase your metabolism.

Start slow, be consistent: When you're not used to working out, you could burnout if you start too fast.  Usually, when people want to lose weight, they go to fast at the beginning and then give up. New exercisers should start with three to five times a week. The more consistent you are, the more calories you're burning.

Change your diet: Exercise is important, but your diet is a large part of your weight-loss formula. But it is important to eat well and exercise. Stick to whole foods like vegetables, fruits, healthy fats, and lean protein, Tracey recommends, making sure you watch out for starchy carbs, added sugars, and too-big portions.

Don't lose too much too fast: You shouldn't be losing any more than one to two pounds a week, so make sure you're eating enough to fuel your new workout routine.

Spring Weight Loss Tips – Foxboro, MA

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, April 01, 2014

We have been saying it and saying it, but we found an article on Sheknows that says it too. You can lose weight for spring without doing anything drastic and without a fad diet plan. Here are some weight loss tips:

Find an activity you love

There's no better way to give yourself a post-winter boost than to get active in a way that doesn't feel like a burden. Before you sabotage your fitness goals with a humdrum workout routine, do some experimenting. Try a boot camp or a new class at your gym, or sign up for a sport you love but haven't played in a while. The more fun working out feels, the more motivated you'll be to burn calories.

Get outside

Now that it's (finally) nice out, you have the option of moving your fitness routine outdoors — an excellent way to keep things interesting. Whether you start walking to work every day, take up running or join a coed sports league with a few friends, find a way to get some fresh air as you get fit. Being outdoors can often feel much less constricting than a gym, meaning you'll be more likely to feel better about whatever activity is on your workout schedule.

Get a workout buddy

Chances are you aren't the only one with springtime weight loss and fitness goals. Take a look at your friends and family whom you could see yourself working out with, and find out who else wants to get active. Working out with a friend even can go a long way toward keeping you on track. Decide on a weekly fitness class to attend together, meet up for a morning run, or go halves on a series of personal training sessions. Having a friend with similar goals to turn to for support can help keep you going when you start to lose motivation.

Spring clean cupboards

Getting to the gym and finding new ways to stay active are important, but burning extra calories is another factor at play when it comes to spring weight loss. What you eat (or don't eat) is equally important. If you want to put the focus on healthy eating, you need to take a closer look at what's inside your cupboards. Make a pile of anything that won't help your weight loss goals, such as snack cakes and packaged cookies, anything made from white flour, sodium-packed canned soups and processed goods, and anything you'll be tempted to eat an entire bag of. Replace the no-go items with healthier alternatives.

Focus on fresh ingredients

Once you've cleaned out your cupboards, it's time to turn to the fridge. The more your meals focus on fresh, colorful ingredients, the healthier and more conducive to weight loss they'll be. Find out when your local farmers market opens, and start trying out new recipes based on what ever's freshest when you go.

Challenge yourself

Setting a fitness goal for yourself is a great way to take your weight loss plan to the next level. It's one thing to say you want to lose 10 pounds by June, but quite another to sign up for a half-marathon you'll need to train for. Decide on something you really want to do that will require some training and commitment on your part, and then make it happen. When you have a goal that goes beyond numbers dropping on the scale, you'll be surprised at how much more motivated and excited you are about reaching that goal.
