3 “Weird” Tricks to Help Shed Belly Fat

3 “Weird” Tricks to Help Shed Belly Fat

belly-flat-stomach
By this point, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that to shed belly fat we need to eat less overall and exercise more.

We also have to increase the quality of our diets … so not just reducing calories, but reducing the crap calories in our diets and ramping up the nutrient dense foods.
But there are also some “weird” little tricks-outside of food and exercise – that will help shed body fat over time.
Trick #1: Chew more.

3-camel_chew

With the fast, on the go mentality so many of us have these days, we’re often eating on the go, swallowing our food practically whole.

But a study out of Purdue University showed that a subtle difference … chewing almonds 40 vs. 25 vs. 10 times before swallowing, boost fullness.
Of course when you’re more full, you’ll eat less, and this can translate to less belly fat.
Chewing more also released more of the beneficial fats in the almonds.

And we know the power of those healthy fats for keeping the heart strong.


Trick #2: Eat with your non dominant hand.

Sounds SO silly, but go ahead and try.
Pick up your fork with your non dominant hand … I promise you’ll slow down how quickly you eat.
And when you slow down your speed, you eat less.

It takes about 20 minutes for your brain to send fullness – so when you slow down, you give it that time to recognize you’ve actually taken in some calories and not to go overboard.
Trick #3: Brush your teeth immediately after eating.

3-dentist-office-art

Not only will others appreciate this, but as you know, food doesn’t taste quite so good with minty breath.
Therefore, the likelihood of turning to dessert when a meal is done or even taking bites of the leftovers while putting them away, is much less.

Again, all these calories add up quickly.

“The Biggest Loser Show”

A history about “The Biggest Loser Show” and why almost all of the people in the show never seem to keep the weight off after the show.

 

The Biggest Loser is a very popular television show in America.

33-biggest-loser

This show awards contestants who loose maximum weight during a stipulated period.

This show has been a mainstay program in the NBC channel schedule.

The Biggest Loser show started in October 2004.

33-biggest-loser1

We all witnessed the contestants lost their weight very quickly under the guidance of their trainer.

This was enough to hook the attention of the viewers.

The incredible results amazed people and the popularity of the show spread like jungle fire.

The show, in its run over the years, has set some benchmarks.

Some such bench mark includes most weight lost in a week and fastest 100-pound weight lost.

However, the show has elicited adverse remarks from nutritionists and physicians.

They believe such methods of weight loss can be counter productive and at times maybe even fatal.

The question everyone wants to know is “is the weight loss permanent.

Some contestants from the first few seasons have a lot of interesting statistics to share with us.

Let’s study the case of Ryan, the season one winner.

33-ryanbensonbefore

When he came to the show he weighed 330 pounds. After competing in the show he lost 122 pounds, which was about 36.97% of his body weight. But soon after the show Ryan gained back all the weight he lost on the show. This is because the show taught him nothing about exercise and nutrition. He regained weight at an alarming rate – 32 pounds within 5 days of leaving the show.

33-benson

Benson is actually considered a success for still keeping 30 pounds off for over a year. According to the National Weight Control Registry, “only a fifth of dieters with a history of obesity sustain a loss of 10% of their body weight for a year or more.”

He claims that as soon as the show was over, he regained “32 pounds in 5 days simply by drinking water.” This is incredible and points to the fact that when any person loses weight rapidly, (faster than 1-2 pounds a week) normally the weight loss is mostly due to water loss.
Where is Kelly Minner Now?

33-minner

One former participant who is still losing weight after losing the show is Kelly Minner.

The first-season runner-up went from “242 lbs. to 163 lbs. by the finale and now weighs 140 lbs.”

How does she maintain her weight loss?

She exercises 6 days a week for 1 to 4 hours a day. I agree that exercise is definitely paramount to maintaining weight loss, but for the average person, exercising for 4 hours a day is just unrealistic.

With this kind of high exercise volume, I would also worry about the high risk for injuries that could end up stopping exercise altogether.

Kelly Mac, another participant, gained 9 pounds since the Season 1 finale. And now weighs 160 pounds.

Likewise Season 2 winner Matt Hoover who lost 160 pounds gained back 30 pounds when he appeared in the special.

In season 3 the winner, Brian’s weight came down from 308 pounds to 156 pounds.  Brian soon regained 47 of the 156 pounds he lost.

Other participants of that season who regained weight were Pam and Wylie. They regained 8 and 32 pounds respectively.

Jim who lost 186 pounds in season 4 regained 40 pounds.

Twins on the Show

33-sam-rouen-biggest-loser-winner-season-3

Sam Rouen

Sam Rouen, lost just over 157 pounds last year on the hit NBCshow.  He regained 11 of those pounds when as soon as he returned home but with a regimed diet & exercise is back on track.  He has enrolled back int University and is right on track!  To read more on Sam and his Success Click here

Why do most contestants of the show regain weight?

The main reason is that such programs adopt unrealistic and unhealthy ways of losing weight.

Most of the participants are made to undergo inappropriate exercises.

The technique of losing weight requires a natural environment.

Instead of losing weight in gradual progression the TV show encourages participants to adopt an aggressive approach – as if their world would come to an abrupt end. Not making ones body fit enough to progress to the next level of exercises, encourages the condition of over-weight to relapse. Most importantly, money cannot be a motivation to lose weight. Those who lose weight because of greed will gain it back sooner than later.

On the other hand though it can be a kick start & kick in the @#&!  To Jump start a new and healthy Life Style which is my Ultimate wish for each of the Biggest Loser Contestants as well as for all my  6 Week TBT People.  My( Total Body Transformation) Contestants.  Most all my contestants have continued on with me as I guide them thru their nutrition and exercise for a total lifestyle change.  Remember I am all about mindset!!  Check out My 1st 3 Contests

Dr. Saman Bakhtiar Likes to Set Up Goals With His Clients

Watch this video of me and my awesome client/friend Suzi and learn one method I use to get my clients fired up to reach their goal. Remember it’s all in the mindset. As a matter of fact 1/3 of my soon to be released book “Body Transformation Secrets” is dedicated to mindset. We all know we have to exercise and eat better but why only 5% of people succeed while 95% fail. Yep you guessed it “mindset”. This is a powerful way to make sure you reach your goals. TRUST ME.

I also use the same exact method to motivate myself as well (I practice what I preach) as a  matter of fact I didn’t reach a goal that I set for myself last month so I am running a 5K this Saturday. OK I am giving it away…….WATCH THE VIDEO
