Following are the List of 25 Health Tips which you might not know
1. Spice Things Up
Eating even one meal that contains capsaicin-the compound that gives hot sauce and chile peppers their heat-not only reduces levels of hunger-causing ghrelin, but also raises GLP-1, an appetite-suppressing hormone.
2. Swap Sides
A recent study showed that if you eat with your nondominant hand you can reduce what you eat by 30% because it breaks up that automatic hand-to-mouth flow. If you have trouble slowing down, put your utensil in your other hand. It's inconvenient, it's awkward, and you cannot go fast.
3. The Little Seed That Could
Add chia seeds to your water bottle, morning OJ, afternoon iced tea, or sprinkle them on salads, yogurt, and cereal. One ounce delivers an impressive 10 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein. Research found they can help you eat less by naturally regulating blood sugar, which helps put the breaks on hunger.
4. The Coffee-Power Nap Trick
Drink a cup of coffee right before a 20-minute power nap. Studies show it takes about that amount of time for the caffeine to kick in, so you'll wake feeling ready to go.
5. Instead of Ultralight, Reach for Local Craft
Savor and sip the superiority of one local, full-flavored high-gravity craft beer. It'll quench and satisfy far greater than 2 ultralight pints.
6. Salt Shaker Switch
Fill your salt shaker with pepper and your pepper shaker with salt. Since salt shakers have more holes, the switcheroo will help to slash your sodium intake.
7. Follow the 2x2x2 Plan
Eat twice as often, eat half as much, and chew twice as long.
8. Table Matters
Make your table monochromatic: If your plates and bowls match and are the same colors as your tablecloth or placemats, you'll naturally eat about 5% less compared to a table set with contrasting colors.
9. Go Nuts for Breakfast
Are you hungry after your morning bowl of cereal? Try adding some healthy fat to your meal for satiety. Top your cereal with 2 tablespoons of nuts or seeds.
10. Be the First to Order
When dining out, be the first one to order. You'll be less likely to change your mind after hearing what others are having.
11. Rev Up Your Morning with Water
Drink an 8-ounce glass of water as soon as you wake up in the morning to rev up your metabolism. Your body is parched after 6 to 8 hours of sleep.
12. Wear Your Workout Clothes to Bed
Less effort in the AM means you're more likely you'll rise for that early morning workout!
13. Read Up on Fitness
Make it a goal to read one fitness or nutrition article each day. Studies show those who expose themselves to information develop a natural inclination to act on the advice.
14. Eat S.L.O.W.
A Japanese study found that faster eaters gained an average of 4.2 pounds over 8 years, while slower eaters gained only 1.5 pounds.
15. Lace Up First Thing in the Morning
Keep your workout shoes next to your bed. Lace them up before your feet touch the floor in the morning and get a move on.
16. Grab a Handful of Almonds When Stressed
Almonds are bursting with vitamin E, an antioxidant that bolsters the immune system, and also contain B vitamins to help keep your body on track when it's under stress.
17. Meatless Mondays
Go vegetarian one day a week. For an easy substitution in a stir fry, use 1/2 cup cubed tofu (marinated in soy sauce, garlic, ginger, and peanut oil) instead of chicken. Cook as usual with your veggies for a satisfying dinner.
18. Move to the Beat
A recent study by the North American Association for the Study of Obesity found that women are more likely to stick to an exercise program if they listen to music.
19. Switch Your Latte to a Tea
Research shows L-theanine, an amino acid in tea, reduces feelings of stress and increases relaxation.
20. Order Your Salad Chopped with Tomatoes
The juice from the tomatoes moistens the salad, lessening the need for lots of salad dressing. Make sure to specify dressing on the side too, so you can control the amount that goes on.
21. Bake Smarter
When baking, use mini chocolate chips in place of regular chips and you can use about less than the recipe calls for without anyone noticing.
22. Sub Paprika for Bacon
Nix the bacon; use smoked paprika instead to get that smoke-infused taste.
23. Instead of a Bagel, Reach for an English Muffin
Swap the 3½-inch bagel with 1 tablespoon each cream cheese and fruity jam for a whole-wheat English muffin topped with a tablespoon of peanut butter and fresh strawberry slices and save 100 calories.
24. In-Shell Pistachios
In-shell pistachios are a good low-cal source of protein, with a filling 6 grams of protein per ounce and only 100 calories per 30-nut serving. Researchers have found that eating in-shell pistachios resulted in eating 41% less calories compared to those who ate shelled nuts.
25. Watch for Sneaky Sugar
Be a sugar sleuth and know how to ID sneaky names that food manufacturers use for added sugar. Words with "-oses" generally mean added sugars: sucrose, glucose, galactose, maltose, dextrose and fructose are all sugars.
