Most people sleep for less than the recommended hours (7-8 hours) or don’t get quality sleep every night. There are so many reasons we experience insomnia, and one of them is the foods we eat before we sleep. Eat the wrong foods and you’ll turn from side to side the whole night hoping to fall sleep.

I can’t guarantee avoiding these foods will fix your insomnia but you’ll definitely sleep better if you avoid them.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes or any foods that contain tomatoes like sauces and soups can ruin your sleep. For one thing, tomatoes cause acid reflux which can cause unease especially when you’re lying down. Additionally, tomatoes are not easy to digest and this can cause discomfort if you eat them right before bed.

Spicy foods

Spices increase the body temperature, and it’s hard to catch sleep when the body is warm. In fact, if you want to sleep better get the body cold before bed. Spices also cause acid reflux.

Sugary foods

Sugar will give you a rush, which quickly drops and leaves you wanting more. Eating sugar or foods with added sugar a few hours before bed will mess with your moods and make it harder to sleep. Stay away from sugar in the evening and later afternoon.

Coffee

Coffee or any beverages that contain caffeine will ruin your sleep. Caffeine stimulates the brain and keeps us alert. Note that it takes 6 hours for caffeine to be eliminated in the body. You’re better off drinking coffee in the morning than right before bed.

Alcohol

There’s this assumption that alcohol helps people sleep, but it doesn’t. It may make you fall asleep fast but it’ll prevent quality deep sleep. If you drink regularly you’ll notice that you lose sleep in the middle of the night. Once alcohol is digested it stimulates the brain and hinders sleep.

Carbohydrates with high glycemic index

Carbs with high GI cause blood sugar spikes which affects quality of sleep. When the blood sugars drop they cause sugar cravings. That’s why you may start craving sugar in the middle of the night.

You probably know that exposure to sunlight will give you vitamin D. Unfortunately, most people don’t expose themselves to sunlight or get enough of this vitamin from other sources. According to this study 42 percent of Americans are vitamin D deficient. Well, you’re totally missing out if you’re part of that percentage. Here’s what will happen once you start getting enough vitamin D.

Muscle cramps and twitches will disappear

Vitamin D plays a role in muscle functionality and strength. And research shows that being vitamin D deficient may contribute to muscle cramps and twitches. Once you get enough vitamin D your muscle functionality will improve.

You’ll be less likely to fall

This is especially true for older folks. One study found that adults older than 65 years had less falls when they took vitamin D supplements for 5 months than those who didn’t take the supplements. This could have been due to the fact that vitamin D improves muscle functionality.

You won’t gain weight

A study conducted on elderly women found that women who didn’t get enough vitamin D gained extra 2 pounds over a period of 4 years, compared to women who got enough vitamin D, despite maintaining the same eating habits.

Your cholesterol will improve

Cholesterol has been linked to heart disease and stroke, so you have to use all tricks to keep it balanced. This study shows that women who got sufficient vitamin D for 2 years lowered the bad cholesterol. And their good cholesterol improved.

Muscle and joint pain will be fixed

Chronic joint or muscle pain can make you feel tired all the time and keep you in a bad mood. In this study, subjects who took vitamin D supplements reported experiencing less pain after 20 weeks. Their pain didn’t disappear completely, but they were in a better mood.

Better eyesight

It’s natural for our vision to weaken as we grow older but research shows vitamin D can help maintain good vision and reduce risk of eye conditions.

Best vitamin D Sources

Sunlight, fatty fish, raw milk, orange juice, supplements, egg yolks, beef liver, fortified cereal, cod liver oil, tuna, and mushrooms.

Omega 3 fatty acids are essential fats, which means the body can’t make them, so we have to get them from food. And the commonly known sources for omega 3s are fish, fish oil, grass fed beef and so on. But this doesn’t mean vegans can’t get these essential fats. There are plenty of plant foods rich in omega 3s. Here are the 10 best sources of omega 3s for vegans.

Note that the ratio of omega 3s to omega 6s matters a lot. Research shows that ratio of 4:1 or lower of omega 6s to omega 3s respectively, can reduce risk of diseases and mortality rate.

1. Hemp seeds

Hemp seeds have a good ratio (1:3) of omega 3s to omega 6s. These seeds also contain A, D3 and E and cholesterol-fighting phytosterols.

2. Flaxseeds

Flaxseeds are one of the best sources of omega 3s. And they help reduce inflammation because they have more omega 3s than omega 6s. You can also increase omega 3s by taking flaxseed oil.

3. Beans

Beans have low amounts of omega 3s compared to seeds and nuts. But mung beans have a great ratio of omega 3s to 6s.

4. Chia seeds

If you eat chia seeds for other reasons, be glad because they’re also adding omega 3s to your body. Chia seeds have a 3 times more omega 3s than omega 6s.

5. Seaweed

Seaweeds have lots of omega 3s. In fact, seaweeds and algae are the only plant based sources of DHEA and EPA. Research shows that supplementation of algae can increase omega 3s and lower bad cholesterol.

6. Leafy greens

Leafy greens like spinach, broccoli, kales and so on, have good amounts of omega 3s. Leafy greens will also give you the much needed iron and calcium.

7. Berries

Berries are one of the healthiest fruits you can eat, they rich in omega 3s, antioxidants, and are good for diabetics.

8. Mangoes

This delicious fruit has more omega 3s than omega 6s. One medium-sized mango has about 80mg of omega 3s.

9. Wild rice

Wild rice is very healthy and it should be part of everyone’s diet. It’s rich in fiber, zinc, magnesium, iron and protein. It has a balanced ratio of omega3s to 6s.

10. Cabbages

Cabbages and other veggies in the cabbage family have omega 3 fatty acids.

You’ve probably heard the benefits of drinking cold water, but did you know that drinking warm or hot water has more benefits? If you don’t usually drink warm water, here are the benefits you’ll experience once you start drinking it.

Aging will slow

When we drink warm water, it gets rid of compounds in the body that fasten aging. Warm water also helps in repair of cells and improves skin elasticity.

The body will detoxify

For one thing, drinking warm water will increase the body’s temperature. And consequently cause sweating, which is one way of getting rid of toxins and detoxifying the body. Drinking plenty of water also helps the kidney get rid of toxins easily.

You’ll lose more weight

Drinking warm water boosts body temperature which in return increases metabolism, and burns more calories. Adding lemon to warm water can help curb your appetite and increase the breakdown of fat.

You’ll get rid of pain

Drinking warm water helps reduce stomach pain. If you have stomach ache or abdominal cramps, warm water can fix it.

You won’t be constipated

Drinking warm or hot water can improve your gut health. As you may know, being dehydrated causes digestion problems and constipation. Warm water also helps breaking down of food and movement of bowel.

Better flow of blood

Warm water helps clean up the blood streams by breaking down fat deposits. This also helps get rid of toxins and improves overall health.

You’ll clean up the throat

Warm or hot water is great for the throat. You’ve probably used it before to treat colds, sore throat, tonsils and so on.  Drinking warm water regularly can reduce risk of any of these throat problems.

So many articles give light on healthy foods but only a few focus on unhealthy foods. So today we’ll look in to the foods you should avoid.

The foods we’re about to discuss not only hinder weight loss but also contain chemicals and additives that will ruin your health. Now, you don’t have to completely avoid these foods, unless you’re addicted to them. But you should eat them occasionally.

 1. Industrial vegetable oils

Refined vegetable oils like corn oil, soybean oil and canola oil have high amounts of omega 6 fatty acids. High consumption of these fatty acids can cause inflammation and has been linked to cancer.

2. Margarine

Studies have revealed that margarine isn’t as healthy as folks thought. It is made with unhealthy ingredients that can harm your health. Butter from grass fed meat cows is the best alternative.

3. French fries

Potato chips and French fries have high amounts of trans fats and lots of calories. In fact, various studies say that consumption of these foods has contributed to obesity.

4. Low fat yoghurt

Not all yoghurts are bad for you. But stay away from low fat yoghurts because they’re loaded with sugar.

5. Ice cream

Ice cream is delicious but it’s one of the worst foods out there. Your best bet is to make your own ice cream with less sugar and healthier ingredients.

6.Processed cheese

While unprocessed cheese is healthy, processed cheese is made with unhealthy ingredients that are designed to look and feel like real cheese.

7. Sugary beverages

Sugar has contributed to most of the health and weight gain problems in today’s world. Avoid drinks with added sugar because they’ve been linked to insulin resistance, weight gain and diabetes.

8. White bread

White bread is bad because it’s loaded with sugar. It’s also bad for folks with celiac disease and gluten intolerance. Whole wheat bread is a little healthier.

9. Candy

Candy is loaded with added sugar, food coloring, and unhealthy fats. Some candies actually affect concentration in children.

10. Diet sodas

If you thought diet soda is good for your health, think again. Diet soda has ingredients which have been proven to cause cancer in animals, and could have the same effect on humans. You’re better off drinking teas and coffee.

11. Processed meats

Meats like sausages and bacon contain preservatives that hinder the body’s natural function and increase risk of diseases like diabetes and cancer.

12. Energy drinks

Energy drinks are high in sugar, calories, caffeine and other bad chemicals. One study found that energy drinks ruin teeth more than sodas.

Increasing intake of fruits and vegetables is one of the best things you can do when trying to lose weight. But not every fruit is perfect for weight loss. Some are high in sugar and calories, and they can quickly cause weight gain. So choosing the right fruits and vegetables is critical.

Realize that fruits and vegetables aren’t just important because of vitamin and nutrients. They’re filled with fiber which curbs hunger, reduces appetite and ultimately makes you eat less. Here are the 10 best fruits and vegetables for fast weight loss.

1. Hot peppers

Adding hot peppers to your meal will add flavor and burn excess calories. This study found that capsaicin, a compound found in hot pepper heats up the body and boosts metabolism. Both ground and fresh hot pepper has these weight loss benefits.

2. Apples

Apples are the ultimate weight loss fruit. They taste good, they’re filling and low in calories. A medium size apple has 95 calories. Eating an apple a day can reduce your total calories intake and improve your health.

3. Broccoli

Broccoli has phytonutrients which help boost testosterone and fight fat storage. Avoid eating raw broccoli if you have digestion problems, because it can cause stomach upsets and bloating.

4. Tomatoes

Tomatoes have a powerful fat burning compound called 9-oxo-ODA. And research also shows that lycopene, a compound found in eggs helps trim the waistline.

5. Pickles

I can’t think of a vegetable that has fewer calories than pickles. One large pickle has 15 calories and 2 grams of fiber. Eating 50 calories of pickles is more filling than 500 calories of junk food. Eat them as frequently as possible.

6. Grapefruits

Research shows that grapefruits enhance weight loss and improve insulin sensitivity. So if you want to trim your waistline this is one fruit you should eat regularly.

7. Overnight potatoes

Freshly cooked potatoes don’t have weight loss benefits like potatoes which have been cooked and stored overnight. When cooked and stored, potatoes go through a process called retrogradation. This makes them harder to digest and they enhance oxidation of fat.

8. Beans

Did you know that beans are considered vegetables? They’re rich in protein, fiber and they’re also low in calories. Once you substitute starch with beans fat will start melting away.

9. Cucumber

Cucumbers are great for weight loss because of their high water content and low calories. Feel free to grill them or add them to your salad.

10. Pears

Eat pears as much as possible when they’re in season. One pear has 6 grams of fiber, which makes it very filling.

Slow metabolism is one of the biggest excuses for folks who can’t lose weight. But most times your metabolism is not the main reason why the scale doesn’t budge. That said, there are things that can actually cripple your metabolism and make it harder to lose weight.

As you may know, metabolism has a great impact on weight loss. So it’s important to keep it up all the time. Well, avoiding these 8 things will help keep your metabolism up.

Pesticides in food

The chemicals in pesticides interfere with our hormones and consequently slow down metabolism. Eating healthy foods won’t do your metabolism much good if the foods have pesticides. Buy organic fruits and veggies or grow your own.

Lack of quality sleep

Research shows that people who sleep less hours burn fewer calories. Sleep deprivation doesn’t just slow metabolism but it also make you less energetic.

Low calorie intake

Maintaining a low calorie intake for a long time slows down metabolism. When the body doesn’t get enough energy from food it slows metabolism to use energy efficiently.

Sitting for long hours

Being physically active helps boost metabolism, while being inactive slows metabolism. If you have a desk job make sure you stand up after every 20 minutes and take a walk after every 2 hours.

Calcium deficiency

Calcium helps regulate fat metabolism. If you don’t get enough calcium, you’re more likely to store food as fat instead of burning calories, according to research. Drink milk to get enough calcium.

Dehydration

Water plays a huge role in all bodily functions. Some studies show that being dehydrated can slow metabolism by 2 percent. And other studies show that increasing water intake enhances weight loss.

You don’t eat fiber

Fiber-rich foods are great for weight loss – they’re filling, and have a high thermic effect of food. If you mostly eat white carbs your metabolism will definitely suffer. Eat plant foods since most of them are rich in fiber.

You don’t get enough vitamin D

Vitamin D helps preserve metabolism-revving muscle tissue. Unfortunately, statistics show that 50 percent of Americans don’t get enough vitamin D. Make sure you get at least 20 minutes of sunlight each day and eat foods like eggs and fish.
