[05/24/21]   5 tips for losing those pandemic pounds
By Dr. Sharon Stills, NMD

Pandemic weight gain is real. In fact, nearly 50% of women in the US report gaining weight since last spring, packing on an average of 12.5 unwanted pounds. Some women report gaining twice that amount, or more.

woman trying to lose the pandemic pounds

If you’ve been trying to lose your own lockdown weight gain, you’ve probably already discovered how challenging this can be — despite all of your old diet tricks.

How can these pandemic pounds possibly be more stubborn than regular weight gain? There’s actually a very simple explanation.

It's stress.

When you’re under chronic stress — and who hasn’t been over the past year? — your body’s “fight or flight” response is triggered constantly, which causes hormonal changes that disrupt the way your body uses calories and stores fat. When you’re under constant stress, your body starts hanging onto every single calorie you consume — just in case you need that fuel to flee danger.

Our stress response is an ancient biological system that cannot tell the difference between the stress matrix of Covid and being chased by a tiger. Once the stress response is triggered, a cascade of hormones floods your bloodstream, regardless of the nature of the threat.

On top of this, your adrenal glands produce excess stress hormones, creating another hormonal imbalance. If your weight gain during the pandemic has shown up as added belly fat, it’s an almost sure sign that cortisol (the primary stress hormone) is being produced at higher than normal levels. Cortisol affects fat distribution by causing fat to be stored centrally around the organs in your midsection. This type of fat cell then emits signals that further impair your hormonal balance -- a cascade of problems!

Now for the good news: — losing “stress weight” is possible. Here are 5 simple steps you can take to balance your stress response, recalibrate your hormones, and lose those stubborn pandemic pounds.

5 tips for shedding stress weight
Feed your body stress-fighting foods
Certain foods are excellent sources for nutrients that help to calm your body’s stress response and rebalance cortisol levels, removing these blocks to weight loss. Stress-fighting foods are also perfect for sustainable weight loss because they can form the basis of a low glycemic, whole foods-based diet — aka, a “no gimmick” diet that works! As you plan healthy meals and snacks, try to include these stress-fighting favorites:

Wild caught salmon provides protein to stabilize blood sugars and curb excess production of cortisol. Salmon also contains beneficial amounts of Omega 3s to help boost mood and emotional well-being, two key ingredients to keep you motivated on your weight loss journey
Dark leafy greens provide magnesium, a vital mineral to support the adrenal glands in regulating cortisol and balancing other stress hormones. Try organic kale, spinach and mustard greens.
Vitamins C, E and B5 each play a starring role in supporting your body’s healthy stress response. For vitamin C, try oranges and apples, carrots, and red and orange peppers. Foods rich in vitamin E include avocados, almonds and asparagus. For vitamin B5, stock up on eggs, lentils and split peas.
Eat larger meals earlier in the day
Cortisol follows a natural cycle that corresponds to your circadian (sleep/wake) rhythm. Normally, cortisol is highest in the early morning and declines gradually throughout the day to help you get ready for sleep. Because eating always increases cortisol, it’s ideal to eat larger meals earlier in the day as a way to help cortisol fall back into its regular pattern. Intermittent fasting may be helpful for rebalancing cortisol. You can also try a high quality natural stress support supplement to help you relax into “rest and digest” mode later in the day, and bring cortisol back into balance.

Ditch the sugar and refined carbs
When your blood sugar spikes, so does cortisol production. To lose weight, you want to provide your body with foods that maintain healthy blood sugar balance — and that means getting rid of refined carbohydrates and all the foods that send your blood sugar on a roller coaster. When you’re stressed, it’s easy to turn to sugary foods and drinks, but these just add to the vicious cycle of stress weight gain. Make note of foods that you might not normally consider “sweet”, including wine, sourdough bread, sauces, and smoothies with added sugars.

Try exercises that help you de-stress
Vigorous exercise can trip the body’s fight or flight response, creating a surge in stress hormone production. This is why engaging in high intensity exercise often doesn’t do much for weight loss when you’re under chronic stress; strenuous exercise can actually amplify a stress hormone imbalance and keep stress weight stuck in place.

Listen to your body. Do you feel better or worse after your daily workout? If exercise is leaving you wiped out instead of rejuvenated, start engaging in exercise that actively supports your stress response. Yoga is one of the most effective tools at our disposal because it’s a gentle, relaxing practice that helps to re-regulate out of control stress hormones — plus, it’s a good workout! Studies support yoga’s effectiveness for weight loss, so why not give it a try? As we continue to social distance, you can get started by joining an online yoga class.

Find social connection

In case there was any doubt about the mind-body connection: research shows that feelings of loneliness are powerful enough to trigger increased cortisol production. Given this, it’s no wonder weight gain has been so common during the pandemic. This has been a lonely time for so many of us.

To end feelings of isolation, reach out to friends and family and see who else is ready to break out their pandemic rut. Post a message on Facebook that you would like to connect for daily wellness check-ins, and see where that leads.

It’s taken a year for your stress weight to appear, so give yourself time to help your body release it. Forget about crash dieting and quick weight loss. Unrealistic goals just put your body under more stress — and they rarely lead to lasting results.

The ultimate tip for pandemic weight loss? Feel gratitude for the body that has supported you throughout this difficult year. You can’t heal a body you hate, so focus on nourishing yourself with supportive body-positive affirmations, nutrient-dense food, gentle exercise, natural stress support, and mood-boosting social connections — even if they have to happen virtually.

You may be happily surprised by how quickly those stubborn pounds fall away when you simply start supporting your body’s natural balance.

[08/20/20]   Here are some ways to lose weight

By Myprotein Writer Hannah Staff

Losing weight is never easy and with so much conflicting advice and so many diet regimes to choose from, how do you know which eating plan is right for you? Here we present ten tried-and-tested practical weight loss tips, sure to shed the pounds and see you achieve the body you always dreamed of.

1. Cut sugar, not fat
Artificial sugar (or, as it has become recently known, ‘the new tobacco’), is an unnecessary and addictive source of empty calories with fat-promoting effects. When we consume an excess of sugar and refined flours this can cause blood sugar levels in the blood to increase. The body does not like anything that is different from its optimum composition, and as a result when there is an increase in blood sugar the body releases the “fat storage” hormone, insulin. When insulin has secreted this acts to convert free glucose in the blood to glycogen which can be stored in the liver- decreasing blood sugar levels back to normal.

Most people look to cut all fat out of their diets when trying to lose weight, however, eating a diet rich in healthy fats ( fish, meat, seeds, nuts, olive oil, avocados etc.) will not only leave you feeling fuller, but make food taste better and provides the fuel our bodies need to burn calories. So cut the sugar- and not the fat!

2. Don’t skip meals
…or skimp on them either. Hunger is the downfall to all diets, and a successful weight-loss plan will promote regular, planned meals throughout the day. Our metabolism is like a muscle, it needs to be used to function at its best and therefore skipping meals could actually be sabotaging your weight-loss efforts, as well as making you more susceptible to overeating later on.

3. Eat clean
The average person’s diet is overloaded with chemicals, preservatives, toxins, artificial sweeteners and food colouring. By removing all refined and processed food in favour of natural, organic produce, we cut out all that hidden sugar and hyper-rewarding artificial chemicals that make us crave junk food and refined ‘simple’ carbohydrates.

4. Keep it balanced
A healthy diet is a balanced diet, and in order to shift the bulge you’ll need to give your body what it wants. So, instead of counting calories or cutting out whole food groups, focus on nutrient balance – making sure each meal you eat contains a good source of carbs, protein and fat. By ensuring each of the major food groups are represented in your diet plan, your body will receive all the energy and nutrients it needs to function properly and be at its best.

5. Swap salt for spice
Many of us have too much salt in our diets and given the out-of-control levels of sodium in many processed foods, it can be difficult to stay within the recommended guidelines. However, salt is a big cause of weight gain and can also cause us to feel hungrier and thirstier, thereby eating and drinking even more. While a certain amount of sodium is essential for good health (around 1-3 tsp a day, depending on level of activity), try balancing out your salt intake with other seasonings such as herbs and spices. Capsaicin, an ingredient found in hot chilli peppers, is particularly good for adding flavour while aiding weight loss as it is believed to temporarily increase a person’s metabolic rate and curb appetite at the same time.

6. Write it down
A successful diet is all about acknowledging our eating habits and knowing where our strengths and weaknesses lie. One of the best ways to achieve this is with a food diary. By writing down what you ate, how much you ate, when you ate and any drinks or condiments added to the food, you will be able to track your eating patterns and identify areas for improvement. Be honest with yourself, including everything from that mouthful of sauce you tried while cooking to that bite you stole from your partner’s pudding.

Many of us are ‘secret eaters’ and it’s these moments which we are quick to disregard that can quickly add up and pile on the pounds. Also, record how you felt after eating. Emotional eating is a big contributor to weight gain and you need to be sure that you’re eating because of hunger, not because you’re bored or need a pick-up.

7. Rest up
It’s no surprise that the percentage of people who are sleep-deprived is nearly identical to the percentage of people who are overweight. Sleep controls our diet and there is a wealth of research to prove that sleeping for less than seven hours a night can reduce, and even undo, all the benefits and hard work of dieting. Lack of sleep will not only reduce your energy (causing you to turn to food for sustenance), but can actually exhaust your fat cells too.

According to researchers at the University of Chicago, this ‘metabolic grogginess’ can cause our bodies to become up to 30% less sensitive to insulin, which will, in turn, lead to higher amounts of stored fat.

8. Be active
Physical activity is an important component in any diet programme as without it, only a portion of your weight-loss will be from fat. Losing weight through diet alone will strip your body of its muscle and bone density, experts suggest weight-loss is best achieved through 75% diet, 25% exercise. Physical activity is also often cited as one of the most important factors in maintaining a healthy weight, with all the additional benefits of reducing blood pressure, strengthening your cardiovascular system, improving your mood and helping prevent the insidious loss of bone known as osteoporosis.

9. Savour every mouthful
Eating more slowly and chewing your food for longer may take a little patience but it can have a hugely positive impact on how much you actually eat. When we eat quickly, our bodies do not have time to go through the natural signalling process between our gut and our brain – the time it takes for our hormones to register we are full approximately 20 minutes. By rushing a meal your body’s satiety cues will not recognise feeling full- making it easier to overeat. Put down your fork between mouthfuls and try chewing each mouthful at least 10 times – pausing between mouthfuls if you feel yourself eating too fast.

10. Make it permanent
An effective weight-loss plan requires realistic goals and permanent, long-term commitment. The changes you are making to your diet should, therefore, be matched with changes to your lifestyle too, adapting your habits to an eating and exercise plan that you know you can live with once the initial buzz has passed. While rapid and dramatic weight loss can be extremely rewarding, a slow and steady approach to weight loss is a far healthier way to go, and far more likely to shave off the weight for good.
