Why are people so fat today?
Is it the sugar in everything we eat?
Let’s find out.
1. We eat out much more than ever before.
The foods we eat out contain more calories in a meal than home-cooked food, and it usually contains ingredients that we consume a lot and very few ingredients that we don’t consume enough, which makes eating too much easier and even developing nutritional deficiencies, which can disrupt our overall health. Research shows that the more we eat outside, the more we gain weight.
Prepare as many meals as possible at home. This will help you control the amount of calories and make sure that most of your calories come from nutritious foods.
2. We eat more sugar than ever before
The truth is that sugar will not ruin your health unless you eat it in abundance and do any exercise at all. Unfortunately, this describes most of the population of our world today. The more active and lean someone is, the better the body will be able to cope with simple sugars. The more fat a person is, the more dangerous sugar can be.
Eat most of your calories from unprocessed foods, rich in healthy nutrients, but feel free to use sugar from time to time.
3. We drink more high-calorie drinks than ever before.
If you are freaks of High-calorie drinks, you are likely to stay fat. The problem with such beverages is that they do not cause a feeling of satiety. Therefore, people who drink more calories WILL EAT more calories than those who do not.
Reduce the amount of drinks you drink each week. Learn to drink enough water and enjoy all its benefits.
Remember: you have water inside your body! nothing else. drink water.
4. We eat high-fat diets more than ever before.
Fat intake has increased in insane amounts in the last 15 years. The problem with consuming high amounts of fat is that it is very tasty on the one hand, but it is not satisfying. A gram of fat equals 9 calories while carbohydrate/protein equals 4 calories. Fat is not as satisfying as the other two.
The World Health Organization recommends keeping 20-35% of your daily caloric intake of fat, even if you are exercising.
I recommend keeping a high-carbohydrate diet, even when your goal is to lose body fat.
5. We are sleeping less than ever before.
Our body burns calories quite a bit when we sleep. A person weighing 70 kg will burn about 70 calories per hour, especially since growth hormone is secreted when we sleep, so it is not surprising that studies show that the amount of time we sleep affects weight loss and overall health. There is also evidence that lack of sleep can cause insulin resistance in a person with type 2 diabetes, which increases the likelihood that your body will store carbohydrates as fat.
According to the World Sleep Organization, adults need to have 7-9 hours of sleep a night to avoid the negative effects of sleep deprivation.
6. We burn less energy in our work than any other time in history.
Today, only 20% of jobs require physical work. Causing you to lose about 100 calories from the amount of calories you burn a day.
Think about this for a moment …
EATING 100 extra calories every day, for a year, will add about 5 kg of body fat!
You’ll start to incorporate exercise into your daily life. A very important part of being lean and maintaining a healthy lifestyle is to perform physical activity, at the gym or outside of it.
7. We eat more calories than ever before.
The calorie intake we eat on a daily basis has risen dramatically over the last few years.
The key to decreasing and maintaining normal weight was and will always be the ratio of the energy balance. So it’s a good idea to start paying attention to what gets into our mouths every day, make better choices and incorporate physical activity as part of our lifestyle.
