Medical professionals are increasingly concerned about the obesity epidemic across the United States. No longer can an apple a day keep the doctor away if that apple is combined with a typical American diet. Processed food and sugary fillers have helped contribute to the largest mass weight population in the history of mankind. But food is not the only part of it. Stress can be an added impact on the way our bodies are shaped and the amount of fat we carry around.
The foods you eat impact more then just your waistline. They can affect your oral health too. Your smile can show what you eat. If you eat food high in sugar they can cause tooth decay and cavities. Doctor Bernard Bos, DDS, recommends choosing foods that are high in fiber and calcium. But also pay attention to your stress levels. The more stress you have the likelihood of having a higher percentage of body fat is likely.
But choosing to think more positively can actually help your waistline. The University of California, San Francisco examined the link between mindfulness and overweight obese women. What they found was a person participated in the study mediated more and at the end of the 4-month study had lost a significant amount of weight. It is about changing the way you think about eating. You can take the same techniques and apply them to your own life. Tune into to the physical sensation of hunger, fullness and taste satisfaction and eat based on that awareness. If you take the emotion our of it you can improve your waistline.
If you are trying to lose weight practice being mindful and see if it helps improve your waistline. You may be surpirsed at how easy the pounds come off. Change the way you eat, and change the your health.
