1. Drink more Water

Water is the best and affordable choice for anyone who wants to lose weight. Sometimes, hunger and thirst can’t be differentiated. And we end up with eating, instead of drinking water.

Just drink more water as you can. The more water you drink, the more calories you burn. Also, if you drink water half an hour before your meals, then you can’t take more calories than your body needs while eating.

2. Study food labels

Whenever you purchase food products, just read the labels in it. It will help you to understand which is healthier. With this, you can avoid more calorie intake

3. Don’t break the Breakfast

Always ensure that you do not skip your breakfast. Instead, you can take some less calorie food. My advice is to take egg in your breakfast food. As egg makes you feel full, you won’t snack in between your breakfast and lunch.

4. Drink Coffee or Tea

Yes! If you are a coffee or tea addict, then you can opt for this idea. But ensure that, you do not drink coffee or tea with milk. Instead, take black coffee or green tea. Some good quality coffee improves your metabolic activities as it contains caffeine. This will help you to lose pounds.

Green Tea is one of the healthiest drink which many people prefer. As it comprises antioxidants and flavonoids, you may feel energetic throughout the day. Also, green tea boosts your metabolism. You can get some healthy green tea online

5. Eat whole grains or single food

Grains like wheat, millets, red rice and food such as egg, fish, greens, cheese are single ingredient food. These types of food include less carbohydrates and they are rich in fibre and other nutrition. If you eat these type of food as your regular meals, your body weight will be maintained.

6. Drink your food & chew your water

The best way to take less calories is to “drink your food and chew your water“. This famous saying by Mahatma Gandhi is one of the most important factor. Yes! Chew your food until it becomes liquid and do not gallop the water. Instead, you can drink it by taking sip by sip. This type of mindful eating will help you to eat not more than 20minutes as your jaw might feel painful. Also, it will let you focus only on food while eating and you will not eat more!

7. Be active

As we all know, we can’t lose weight if we sit in the same place for hours. You don’t need to do more workouts, but simple physical exercise like walking and being active helps. Do your chores on your own by not searching for others to do that.

8. Take more Vegetables and fruits

Always, people used to recommend this to reduce weight. But no vegetable or fruit reduce your muscle tissues. Instead, vegetables and fruits helps to detoxify your body from unwanted fats and other toxic substance. This stimulates your body to lose weight. Not only fruits can reduce your weight, but also they can make your skin healthier. The more fruits you eat, the more glowing skin you acquire.

9. Cut off added Sugars

Do not drink sugary soft drinks and fruit juices with added sugar. This will increase your body sugar(glucose, fructose and galactose) level more and results in weight gain. Also, do not encourage children to drink soft drinks or fruit juices as this will lead to obesity in younger ages. Instead, one can eat a whole fruit rather than drinking juices

10. Do intermittent Fasting

Fasting is one of the traditional ways to lose weight. Our ancestors follow this weekly once and this will help us to burn saturated fats and bad cholesterol from our body. If you do this routinely, this will automatically lead you to lose some pounds

11. Sleep deep

Sleeping is one of the best solutions for all the mess we hold. When it comes to digestion, deep sleep plays a major role in a human body. You don’t need to sleep for more hours. But taking good deep sleep for atleast 2 to 3 hours will make you feel relax and enthusiastic once you are awake.

What if we consume EGG?

Eggs! The most preferred food by humans especially, hen eggs. Also, few people would like to take Omega-3-enriched eggs. What if we consume eggs? For years, people have a belief that Egg yolks are not advisable to heart patients as they contain fat. Many people argued whether the egg is a vegetarian or non-vegetarian food.

But, why after these many debates, beliefs & controversies, people love eggs?

In simple words, there are mainly two reasons behind this.

  1. The egg is a simple food from which we can attain n number of nutrition.
  2. Compared to all the other dishes, egg is the only food that you can cook in minutes in the form of many recipes, as they are versatile. One can even consume the egg without cooking. Always, we people prefer easy chores with the best results. And fortunately, eggs can do that.

Now, why this egg is the most nutritious food on the Earth? Does our Earth have any other food full of nutrition? And the answer is Yes! We have some. But still, the egg is the only food which is made up of a single cell that has the ability to produce a complete chicken or any other bird and now you understand how much nutrition it must hold to give birth.

Amount of Consumption matters!

When we ask, why people give importance to Egg whites and yolks are not even considered. Within seconds, one would say, “Egg yolks are full of fat and it will increase my weight”. I don’t know who made people believe this saying. If someone tells us, “No, you should not eat this. It will gain more muscles in your body”. Suddenly, without any question, we will see that food as a curse, and try to stop consuming it if we are not that much fond of it. But what if we really like it? That is the other scenario. In this case, we would say, “It’s ok. I always love this food”.

In both cases, we never try to find out the reason behind that saying as we are busy with our machine life.

In general, Egg whites are good for both healthy & unhealthy humans. Nevertheless, we should not separate the health benefits of the egg as egg white & egg yolk. The entire egg contains almost all the nutrition & calories our body needs. But what matters here is the amount of consumption. Yes! One can eat three eggs per day without any anxiety.

Health Benefits of Egg

Coming to the health benefits, Egg white is rich in protein & the egg yolk has cholesterol. When the food cholesterol comes, some people feel like, “Oh, No! Cholesterol is bad for health”. Here, your perception is wrong. According to scientists, Cholesterol plays a significant role in humans as it is a structural molecule that your cell membrane requires. The yolks contain HDL(High-Density Lipoprotein), which is good cholesterol when compared to LDL, the bad cholesterol. The egg yolk has this HDL a lot. HDL is one of the supreme components in reducing cardiovascular diseases. In most cases, egg consumption increases HDL and the LDL remains constant except on some rare occasions, where the LDL varies slightly. And also, if you worry about this LDL, you can adhere to three eggs per day and not more than that.

Do you know?

Our liver produces cholesterol for our body needs and if you consume cholesterol through food, the liver adjusts its mechanism and produces less cholesterol. That’s why the human body is amazing.

Other than Protein and Cholesterol, eggs can even improve your vision with the help of antioxidants. Egg aids in weight loss as eating eggs make you feel that your tummy is full.

COVID-19 and Eggs

Eggs play a vital role in reducing the risk of COVID-19. In addition to other components like garlic and pepper, eggs also boost your immune system, as it contains sulfated glycopeptides. These glycopeptides trigger the cells to protect the body from infections and diseases. And now, you can have high immunity with a lower risk of corona virus infection.

Now, why the egg is a vegetarian food?

Technically, people who eat animal flesh are non-vegetarian but the egg doesn’t contain animal flesh or muscle tissues. It includes only reproductive tissues. And so, a vegetarian can eat eggs, but a vegan should not. According to the vegan concept, not only animal flesh but also the products obtained from animals should not be consumed.

Bottom Line

On the whole, eggs are one of the most loved foods, no matter egg white or egg yolks. Also, hen eggs are associated with many cooking dishes and baking foods. If you are a foodie with some health-conscious, certainly eggs are the best choice for you.
