More and more people are having problems with their weight. Some people do not take this seriously, but it could turn into a really dangerous and even life threatening problem. Being overweight is extremely unhealthy, because it loads the heart too much. It makes it hard for the normal pumping function of the heart. The increased cholesterol levels are bad for the normal transmission of blood through veins and arteries. Inability for organs to receive a normal quantity of gases and nutritious substances leads to changes in their structure, in the normal function of their cells. The cardiovascular system is one of the most important systems in the body. Without it there is no nutrition to the rest of the structures, no regulation, no immune protection.

Many people know they are overweight and fear going on the scale. They should do the opposite, overcome the fear and see your real weight. If you do not like it, then change it. It is all in your mind.

Is there a nice dress or tight pants you love but cannot wear? Are they just hanging in the closet waiting to be used? You should hang them somewhere else, in an obvious place and look at them on a daily basis. You need the motivation in order to succeed. Do this for your own self, not for anyone else. Your body deserves the best treatment. Give healthy food to it and the outcome will be really good.

Never let yourself be hungry.

It is better to eat just a bit but many times per day. Extremely important it it is to have breakfast. It gives your body energy and prepares you for the new day. Some kind of fruit such as apples, oranges, pears and others can be a good example of a healthy breakfast. You can eat bananas and grapes but in less quantities. Eat oil free meals, many vegetables, salads. For a good diet you can also eat eggs, but still in little quantities. Avoid hunger, because when hungry it is really hard to obtain your will for a diet.

 

Try doing exercises.

It does not mean it has to be hours, even just a few minutes could be of great help. Try walking more. Keep your deep breathing if you decide to go jogging in the morning.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Go on long walks in the park with friends, your dog or alone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Avoid stress.

Stress is a really bad factor. Your organism has different ways of reacting to stress. It is unhealthy in many ways. Try to be relaxed, have long tranquilizing baths. Before going to sleep you could drink a hot cup of tea, which will also have a soothing effect. Tea is also really good for metabolism, which is essential in diets.

Keep in mind that losing weight is not impossible and you can do it just like many other people. Keep yourself motivated, have patience and you will be surprised by the result.


Benefits of eggs in one’s diet

Our organism needs many substances daily in order to maintain itself. Those substances we receive through our food. A good diet is extremely important for our health. A diet should include eggs. However, the eggs we eat should be of high quality so that they serve well enough their purpose in our meals.

Why are eggs important for our health and general condition?

Eggs are rich in many essential for the organism substances.  Each egg contains the following:

  • Choline – 26.5%
  • Tryptophan – 25%
  • Selenium – 22%
  • Iodine – 18%
  • Vitamin B2 – 15.2%
  • Protein – 12.5%
  • Molybdenum – 11.3%
  • Vitamin B12 – 9.1%
  • Phosphorus – 8.6%
  • Vitamin B5 – 7%
  • Vitamin D – 6.6%
  • Calories – 4%

Organisms are complexes of systems, which contain organs. Organs are made out of tissues, which are made out of cells. This makes obvious that the cell is the smallest but essential living structure , which builds up the body. Cells are made out of inorganic and organic substances. The basic organic substance which defines the structure and functions of the cell are the proteins. They are also called polypeptides. Simple polypeptides contain of only amino acids. They bond with each other through peptide bonds and build the protein.  People and animals receive the needed amino acids through their food. The amino acids of the proteins are 20 different ones. 8 of those 20 we cannot synthesize in our cells and therefore can receive them only through our food.  Eggs contain 12.5% proteins, which make them one really great source for this essential organic substance for the body.

The rest of the substances in eggs are really important as well. For example,  Choline is part of different fat containing structures of the cell membrane. Also it takes part in substances in the brain.  For example phosphatidylcholine and sphingomyelin, which are important constructive substances in the brain, or acetylcholine which is a neurotransmitter, taking part in transmitting signals from one neuron to another. Another example is the Vitamin B12 is important for producing the red blood cells or erythrocytes. They are the basic component of the blood and are important for carrying oxygen and carbon dioxide in the organism. Vitamin D is essential for the bones – their growth and health.

How many eggs can you eat?

Usually a good amount is 40 eggs per week. That mean maximum of 5 or 6 eggs per day. The fact that eating too many eggs is unhealthy is because of the cholesterol, contained in them. Cholesterol is really important for the cell membrane and other structures in the cell. When taking in too much quantities, it accumulates on the wall of blood vessels and that leads to different cardiovascular problems.
