There are thousands of such apps developed for but none meet the stiff standards of medical fraternity, dieticians, and experts in the field. Most of the apps invented are a waste; or do they add-value?
The apps were put to a litmus test to find out whether the 20 behavioral strategies from Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) were a part of them or not. These behavioral strategies are specifically for weight loss, diabetes control, and cardiovascular health. Read More

Fiber is a fountain of benefits, says my mother; a fiber-filled diet can just be the right answer to your weight loss worries. There are facts that endorse fiber as a weight loss measure.

Fact #1

You feel satiated for several hours after eating a Diet with high Fiber Content

This is a fact that a diet comprising fiber makes you feel fuller for long hours after you consume it. The calories you eat per volume of food are less so a small quantity of fiber diet is enough to fill you up for hours. Digestion is slow so the stomach doesn’t empty quick enough and remains full. The chewing time you need for breaking-up fiber foods is longer, you eat slowly and feel fuller sooner.

Fact #2

Fiber is Absorbed Partially by the Body

Weight gain is out of question if you have high fiber foods. These foods don’t get absorbed properly in the body and a high percentage gets excreted. These foods are just to give you a feeling of fullness.

Fact #3

High Fiber Foods are Healthy Foods

The nutrients contained in fiber-rich foods are far more than any other foods like meat, cheese, etc. Whole grains, fruits, beans, legumes, pack little calories, but the nutrition they provide are unbelievable. It’s the truth that high-fiber breads are great for weight maintenance.

How to Eat more Fiber-rich Diet?

5 servings of fruits and vegetables should be your minimum daily quota. Eat apples, bananas, pears, strawberries, all are high-fiber foods.

Buy and eat high-fiber brown bread and avoid white bread.

Have oatmeal for breakfast, it’s an ideal fiber diet. Examples are Cracklin’ Oat Bran, Grape-nuts, Raisin Bran, etc.

Have whole wheat pasta in place of regular pasta and choose brown rice instead of white rice.

Strictly say ‘NO’ to sugary foods like candy bars and for snacks choose popcorn or whole-grain crackers.

That way you get to consume less calories, get your daily nutrients quantity, and burn more calories than consumed. So a win-win situation for you. Isn’t it? Try and check it out yourself. Happy eating.

The simple calories burning exercises, or the basic level training that sports-persons, military personnel, and the like do is Cardio. Yes! Cardio burns calories instantly, tone-up leg muscles, and get your body into excellent shape. Usually, when winters come you lose the inclination to go out for a run, jog, or walk because there is snow and ice outside. That’s obvious because cold weather bring on laziness and you just want to be inside, warm and comfortable.

How can you Maintain Fitness in Cold Weather Conditions?

There are so many other options that you can try. Treadmill is one great machine, or a stationary bike can be a big help at this time. Just make a decision that you have to workout on these machines, for 20-30 minutes daily. That’s enough to give yourself a perfect, well-sculpted, toned body shape. Not much of a job if you are serious about your fitness.

Why not Jumping Rope or Running On the Spot?

Another nice option worth trying is jumping rope, or you can do spot running. Both of them burn calories, cut fat, and pump-up the heart. So what happens is that you get the conditioning that the body needs, especially in winters, plus there is improvement in your cardiovascular health.

Leg Exercises are Often Ignored.

Even professionals skip exercising legs. That’s a fact. Some people who have knee, lower back injuries, are unable to do lunges and squats. That’s a pity. You cannot miss leg workouts, because if the pillars on which you stand are weak, your whole body is going to get affected. Strong legs make your body agile, kicks-up metabolism, thus helps burn calories fast.

The lower body has a bigger share of muscles and by toning hamstrings, calves, lower back, glutes, you actually get to improve your metabolism, thus accelerate calories burnt. The fact is that as you work these muscles, more blood is pumped by the heart, to make it flow through the network; that in turn jacks-up your heart’s health, and improves its condition.

Squats for Legs Strength

Position your feet at shoulder width one from the other, and drop down your butt to make it look like you are sitting on a chair. Squeeze your glutes as you move upward. Heels have to be planted tight on the ground as you go about the motions.

Do Lunges for Strong Legs

By lunges you get to develop shape and flexibility of legs. Keep upper body straight, and the chest out; now step forward and let the back knee sink to the ground. You can make your knees go down half-way from the ground, if you want it let strenuous.
