Two Steps To Lose Weight, Supported By Science

Although each body is different and there are multiple ways to lower excess fat, we tell you two simple steps that can help you take care of yourself without starving yourself in the attempt:

  1. Reduce Your Consumption Of Sugar And Carbohydrates:

This causes the levels of insulin in the blood to decrease, causing the kidneys to eliminate excess sodium and water so that you will be less bloated. Also, eliminating sugar eventually makes your appetite regulated, making you eat only what is necessary.

  1. Add Proteins, Fats, And Many Vegetables To Your Diet:

Experts advise to include one source of protein, one fat and another vegetable in each meal.

Protein:

Consuming protein can help eliminate anxiety and cravings. Some examples of protein are meat, eggs, chicken, pork, fish, and seafood.

Vegetable:

Although in general, they all provide a high content of vitamins and beneficial properties for the body, it is advisable to consume vegetables such as broccoli, spinach, and lettuce, as well as tomatoes, cabbage, cucumber, squash, and mushrooms.

Natural Fats:

Although these should be consumed with the measure, you can add to your dishes a little olive oil to season, almonds as a snack and accompany your salad with avocado.

Trends In Health And Wellbeing Of 2018

I am super excited to see how wellness and awareness for our health grow year after year. We pay more attention every time we make the purchase, what we eat, the importance of exercise and other health issues. Real food, cosmetics free of animal cruelty and being able to have a more environmentally friendly life is easier than ever.

Good Bacteria And Much More For Our Intestinal Health

We already know about the importance of maintaining the balance of good and bad bacteria in our intestines, on probiotics and prebiotics. This year we will learn about the benefits of intestinal fungi and its positive side, despite its bad reputation (especially for candidiasis).

Natural Cosmetics

Consumers are already interested in knowing where the foods we consume and what they contain exactly come from. Well, this year we go further, and it is the turn of natural cosmetics. Promoting the transparency of the ingredients and prohibiting certain chemicals will be one of the objectives in 2018.

There are small natural brands that have already gained a place in the market with products more in tune with nature. This year, it will be the big companies that take center stage and those that will adapt to the new demand from customers.
