Low GI Curbs Cravings

Starting the day with a breakfast that includes foods with a low glycemic index (which produce a gradual rise I blood sugar and insulin) could be all it takes to avoid the 3pm munchies. US researchers found that when people added almonds to their breakfast, they reported feeling fuller for longer and also avoided the pitfalls of soaring blood sugar levels that are followed by a crashing low. In addition to almonds, here are some breakfast foods you can work into your diet that fall on the low side of the glycemic index.

  • Yogurt and milk
  • Most fruits: grapefruit, apples, oranges, berries and bananas
  • Dried apricots
  • Oat-based cereals: oat flakes, Oatibix, porridge, muesli
  • All-Bran cereal

Stride out and fight the flab

No need to spend hours in the gym each week – a brisk walk every day can halve your risk of obesity. After studying more than 10,000 people over two years, scientists found the secret to staving off the flab is a daily one-hour walk. The Department of Health recommends a minimum of 21/­­­­ hours of moderate activity, such as brisk walking or gardening, a week.

Who’d have thought bread could help shift pounds?

Replacing white products with wholegrain versions could help you lose those last few pounds, say Danish scientists. Overweight women on a 1,250-calories of refined grain foods or the same amount of wholegrain foods. After 12 weeks, those on the wholegrain diet had lost 7lb 9oz (3.6kg) – around 2lb (1kg) more weight – and significantly more body fat.

·         Swap white bread for whole-wheat, oatmeal, rye or spelt

·         Use whole grains such as barley in vegetable soup or stews, and bulgur wheat in casseroles and other one-pot dishes

·         Substitute whole meal flour or oatmeal for up to half the flour in cakes, muffins, etc.
