Alternatives to your coffee cup
No matter how good your morning cup of coffee, in the afternoon and in the evening, plus steaming cups in between meals; it is best to drink it at a minimum. After all, too much of anything isn't good.
However if you can't put a stop to your daily stimulant and it will take a while before you do quit the habit, here are some tips that can help you make each cup a little healthier.
Have some variety
Coffee isn't the only thing that you can drink. If possible, look for variety. Don't drink coffee all day. Switch your cup of coffee for some hot chocolate drink and maybe an orange juice or lemonade. Cola drinks are of course not an alternative as these also contain caffeine.
If you can, look for alternatives to caffeine such as juices and other great drinks. This way, you won't have caffeine running through your veins, you will also have vitamin C and sugar to keep you awake and alert for the duration of the day.
Eat not drink
Some people drink coffee because they don’t want to eat, either because they are dieting or because they just don’t have the time to eat. This, however, isn't healthy.
If you are hungry, eat! Just stick to healthy alternatives if you don’t want to gain weight. One example is fruit, which can be a healthy alternative to coffee. Fruits can provide the vitality and energy that you need from coffee and at the same time give you essential vitamins and minerals. Always put some biscuits inside your drawer. Coffee-flavored kinds could be a good alternative to your coffee cravings.
Another good alternative to coffee is oatmeal. Like coffee, it is steaming hot and it provides great energy for the rest of the day. Oatmeal is a great antioxidant which keeps the body healthy and hearty. If you like a taste to it, then choose those packs of oatmeal that have flavors in it such as chocolate and vanilla.
What better way to stimulate the senses and to increase one’s energy than to engage in some activity to start off the day? Of course, this will not seem so when you are just beginning. Your muscles will need getting used to it but eventually you will be able to feel the strength that a physical activity in the morning gives.
Caught in a natural energy shortage?
Sometimes, the demands of modern life seem to require an endless supply of energy. It’s hard enough just trying to squeeze everything in, then finding the energy to actually do everything presents a whole other obstacle. Even when we try to lead healthy, balanced lives, the energy our bodies need may not be there to sustain us.
So where do we find the energy to accomplish everything so we can meet our goals and live our dreams? Here’s a short course on what your body needs to produce energy and how you can get more of it.
Connect with carbs:
Our bodies produce energy from our food intake, drawing from its nutrients to fuel our activities. Carbohydrates are the type of food that provide the most efficient fuel. That’s because carbohydrate-rich foods are converted into muscle glycogen, which burns quickly to give us instant energy.
However, there are healthy carbohydrates and ones that are less beneficial to the body. Fruits and vegetables are healthy carbohydrates. Refined grains are carbohydrates that have been robbed of many of their nutrients.
Even a “healthy muffin” can be high in fat and packed with calories, so be mindful of which carbohydrates you choose.
Whether you have an active lifestyle or you’re an athlete, you may need to pay more attention to your carbohydrate intake. Protein also plays a key role because it is needed to muscle maintenance.
To make sure you have adequate energy to function at your peal. Try grabbing a snack 30 minutes before a workout or take a carb break if your routine lasts more than 30 minutes.
The NEW Development in Weight Management and Energy!
Scientists believe the concept of thermogenisis is the most exciting news from weight management research in fifty years.
Thermogenisis, meaning the generation of heat, is a normal process, like digestion, in which the body’s brown adipose (fatty) tissue (BAT) burns up the calories your body doesn’t need, thus creating a natural energy.
Being overfat or obese, occurs primarily when BAT is not functioning properly, and the body must deal with excess calories by storing them as white fat.
Scientists have discovered that by combining specific amounts of certain “totally natural” thermogenetic substances, it is possible to create a basically new compound with an “amazingly safe” thermogenetic action!
THERMOGENISIS WILL DO THE FOLLOWING:
* Prevent dietary lipids from being stored as white fat
* Convert current white fat back into soluble lipids to be burned off
* Burn off the soluble lipids
* Increase the body’s energy by increasing the flow of blood, oxygen and nutrients to muscle tissue, . . . and
* Remove the craving for high calorie food that causes the problem in the first place
WHAT PEOPLE EXPERIENCE . . .
* Clarity of thinking
* Increased energy
* Good for hangovers
* Feeling of well being
* Weight loss
* Size loss
* Improved sex drive (due to energy increase)
