Different types of diets to lose weight fast
WHEN it comes to losing weight there must be a thousand different theories out there. Eat more protein, intermittently fast, cut out carbs, eat little and often...the list goes on. But what if it was a simple as when you eat your food, instead of what you can and can't eat? The time we eat has a big impact on our internal body clock, which can have a huge impact on our waistlines. You may think your body clock, also known as the circadian rhythm, only affects your sleeping patterns, but the fact is there a clock in every cell of your body. And eating a big meal late at night is not the right thing for your metabolism - instead you should be having a big lunch. Nutritionist Helen Bond told The Sun Online: "There is evidence coming through that having the majority of your calories earlier in the day seems to be more beneficial than having a heavier evening meal.

IT sounds too good to be true, right? You only have to do one thing to speed up your metabolism and lose weight for good. But there's one catch, you have to be willing to put in the effort. Tell me more, we here you cry! In order for your metabolism to speed up you need to increase your muscle mass, and that means one thing - up your exercise.

What is missed in this argument is that it is not only carbohydrates that encourage us to make insulin. Foods high in protein and fat do this, too. Beef, for example, increases insulin to a similar level as breakfast cereals. Related to low-carb … [Read more...] about Low carb, Paleo or fasting – which diet is best?
