Lack of information about fat is often held accountable for skewed diets and the rise in obesity risk across the United States. Therefore more information is a must, and care should be taken to understand the mechanism behind fat assimilation.
Best Exercises to Lose Fat:
There are many ways to lose fat but some of the most popular exercises that have emerged over the course of time include the bicycle exercise which must be done in sets of 1 to 3, with 12 or 16 repetitions, the captain’s chair leg raise, the exercise ball crunch, vertical leg crunch, and the long arm crunch.
Knowledge about Fats:
You cannot cut down on your fat intake completely. Since adults need at least 20 to 30% fats in their daily diet, replacement isn’t the solution. There are certain healthy fats like polyunsaturated fats which can lower cholesterol levels, and include the omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids, and monounsaturated fats.
Obesity is the chief killer in the America with the fattest state being Alabama. 2/3rds of America is obese or overweight and 1/3rd is morbidly obese. Alabama contains70% of obesity cases in the country with Mississippi following a close second with 68.8% cases.
The Internet and Obesity:
Though 25% of the time of Americans is spent at the computer, leading to newspaper reports establishing a claim between internet usage and obesity, this link may not necessarily be true. Nearly 700 million users use Facebook in 2011and 181,699 viewers have watched 43,472, 412 videos in December 2011, taking that to a staggering 23 hours per person.
Work and Obesity:
Work levels have increased but actual physical movement or mobility has been decreasing steadily leading to the rise in obesity. For example, over 80% Americans work in jobs which require little or no physical effort. 292,345 Americans don’t get even the minimum level of physical activity while only 6.5% Americans do.
Fat-filled breakfasts are strangely beneficial for you as compared to those with more carbohydrate content. In other words, a carbohydrate rich diet will instantly spike your blood sugar and insulin levels, a fat-rich breakfast like bacon and eggs will take a longer time to be assimilated in the bloodstream and make you feel hungry less quickly.
Fat and Lifestyle Issues:
Lifestyle, alcohol consumption, sleep patterns may seem disconnected things but actually are directly influencing your weight gain. For example, officially, a woman should keep her drinking under 3 drinks per day and under 7 in a week. In fact one pound of fat amounts to 3500 extra unburned calories.
What the Trends Predict?
Americans have been consuming more fat than ever before. Thus in the year 2000, Americans spent 110 billion USD on fast food as opposed to 1970 when they spent just 6 billion on fast food. With the most popular dishes like a tub of popcorn [630 calories], a burger [590 cal] and a slice of pizza [850 cals] piling on the fat, Americas need to rethink their diet.
Stages of Obesity:
There are 12 steps to getting fat, and piling up carbohydrates instead of beneficial fats is the worst thing you can do. The worst culprits in terms of food include corn, potatoes, rice, beer, soda and fruit-juice. The Atkins diet reduces about 9 pounds while the normal diet, regulated of course, reduced about 5.5 calories.
Drinks and Obesity:
Spirits, beer and mixed drinks contain maximum fat content or carbohydrates, with spirits containing anything between 238 calories per 1 oz [in pure ethanol] to a mixed drink like jager bomb containing a similar amount in 6 oz.
