This Year, Try a Weight Loss Resolution That Actually Works
The new year is in full swing, which means that many of us are working on our new year’s resolutions. However, the ones surrounding weight loss are tricky to manage. There is more bad advice out there about diet than “Star Wars” spoilers. ‘Don’t eat fat!’ people warn. That old tip ironically has been making people fat for decades, by pushing a diet high in refined carbohydrates and sugar. The recent research shows that if we want to lose fat, we have to eat fat. More specifically, eating the right kinds of fat from hemp seeds can decrease inflammation, increase satiety and make weight loss more likely.
Anyone who has even heard of the term “wheat belly” knows that inflammation can be the worst enemy of anyone who wants to lose weight or improve their health in general. The biggest known causes of digestive inflammation are grains, wheat in particular, and dairy products. Ever felt the bloat after a big meal with lots of bread and cheese? It may be starting to make a lot more sense now. Fats too high in Omega-6 fatty acids also promote inflammation, which can stop weight loss efforts faster than you can say, “Canola oil.” Fortunately, hemp seeds have the perfect balance of Omega-6 and inflammation-fighting Omega-3 fats, among a whole host of other health benefits.
Many diets for the new year start by cutting out a lot of things. This can be a problem for a lot of people who find that munching on kale instead of a bagel every morning isn’t cutting it. The problem is that when people cut a lot of fat and carbs at the same time, they are often removing most of the things that kept them full. The result? They think that they might die if they don’t hit the vending machine RIGHT MEOW. The poor diet is dead in days. Instead, adding some good fats, protein and calories is the key to turning a diet plan into a diet success. With just a couple of tablespoons of hemp seeds each day, weight loss goals become within reach.
It’s early enough in the year that plans to get swimsuit ready for summer are still entirely achievable. With hemp seeds, we battle dietary inflammation and make ourselves more likely to stick to our diet plans.
