Yoghurt helps Burning Fat!!

I didn't know about this before. I know that yoghurt is healthy, rich with vitamins, fibers, calcium and lot of other stuffs...

At first I only know that it is better for me to exchange my other unhealthy snacks with yoghurt.. so, just as adding / substitude Snacks...

But also burns fat?? that is so cool, for me at least... Cause Yoghurt is not that expensive, anybody can buy yoghurt everyday, right?? I even saw an article that writes about yoghurt diet..

And now I'd like to collect some usefull infos that I can gain infos and maybe follow as My Diet-Tipps..

Most of the pages are talking about Fat Free Yoghurt.. At the groceries I see alot of 0,1% or 1% or 1,8% Fat Yoghurt, but Fat FREE?? I don't know if those kinds are also included in Fat Free??

How does Yoghurt burn FAT??
Fat free yoghurt helps to increase lipolysis (fat burning), however you need to eat at least 3 servings a day to see results. The high calcium and protein properties make it a great weight loss aid.

A study at the University of Tennessee discovered that those who included fat-free yoghurt as part of their diet plan lost significantly more weight compared to those who simply cut calories.

The yoghurt-eaters lost 22 per cent more weight, 61 per cent more body fat and 81 per cent more stomach fat during the 12-week test. Wow.. sounds pretty much promising...^_^

How about Flavoured Fruit Yoghurt??
Okay, After reading couple of articles.. I know NOW.. The Fat Free Yoghurt that they meant, is the plain one.. pretty much sour and not at all sweet.. tough choice huh? I already tasted one before, not really liked it, and since that I only use them in salad...

Well.. Now the choice is yours and mine then.. hehe.. I think I have to put a lot of thinking in this one.. hehehe..


Is Sugar = Fat ??

Yes.. this is also one of my BIG questions... I am sooo curious about Sugar put together with FAT...

Well, I put here all of my questions about SUGAR and the Answers that I found from the internet..

I hope you can also find what you've been looking for in here.. ^_^

Is SUGAR equal FAT??
The Answer is NO. Sugar actually has a purpose as ENERGY for our body. The problem is, our body only need a certain amount of sugar daily, so if we consum sugar too much, they will be put on the side as "FAT", and will be used later only if our body need them again.

However, the conversion from FAT back into a form "Energy" that can be used to do physical activity is chemically rather slow...

So, How much does our body need SUGAR daily?
It is recommended that we only take 8 teaspoons / 32 grams per day based on a 2000 calories/day DIET.

Watch out.. There are GOOD Sugar and BAD Sugar.. Good ones are normally in fruit, vegetables, and low fat milk. And BAD ones are mostly in market products. Don't forget, snacks, yoghurt, sodas, and juices contain also alot of SUGAR...


Sugar Substitude / Other Sweetened Products... Are these GOOD??
The answer is NO!!

Scientists at Purdue University did some series of experiments, they have proven that animals that ate food with substitude sugar, consumed more calories and gained more weight. And as they continued the experiment, those animals were tended to eat more..

You can find these kinds of sugar substitude in our daily products, for example 0,1% fat yoghurts, diet soda, low calories food products, etc.. Wohoo.. scary,right??

Does brown sugar also has the same effect?
Brown sugar at grocery stores is actually white granulated sugar with added molasses.

The pure unrefined brown sugar contains indeed more amounts of minerals than the white sugar.

So, if you are thinking about the brown sugar at the market, YES, they have the same effect as the white sugar. But the unrefined ones, which is called demerara or muscovado, are actually a good substitude for sugar..

How about mapple syrup or honey? Can we use them as substitude for sugar??
The answer is YES.. But remember, only the pure one... and don't ever think that you can use them as much as you want... They also have daily balances for our body, just like sugar.. It is only that they are healthier than the white refined sugar...

We also have to be carefull, because mapple syrup and honey are less sweet than sugar, sometimes we just don't think about the amount that we add to our drink / food... They can also be the cause for diabetes...

So... I think what we shold do is only to hold our sugar / sweet consume every day... WOW.. it is hard than I thought.. hehe..



Water... Good for Diet and also a DIET-Program..


I bet you all know that water is very recomended in every DIET-program, as a matter of fact in our life. Our body contains more than 90% of water and that's why we need water every day...

Water can also be a good help or friend for you, who are in the middle of your diet.. And you know what, Water is also a diet program, it's called Water-Diet..

You know what, I even read an article that says Beyonce even did this DIET... Hmmm...

How we do it?? These are the infos that I found from the internet..

1. You have to drink 8 glass / 64 ounces / 2 Litre of water every day.

2. The water is better be cold, 50 degrees Fahrenheit or colder. But do NOT add ICE-Cubes in your water!!

3. It must be PURE Water, not flavored, or sweetened, or carbonated!!

How does it work??
I am sure you all believe this would work, right? Yeah.. who would not loss weight with just drinking water, right? ^_* But how does it work in our body? I put here in Points, easier to read, all that I found from the NET...

1. Cool Water absorbs heat from our body. And that is very important to the adjustment of your body's metabolism set-point, to help the burning process of our body fat..

2. As you already know water is known as a carrier in our body, it carries nutrients and minerals throughout our body as it is also for carrying toxins out of our body.

If your body fat reduces itself, water accelerates the release of toxins and fluids from those fat. And if you drink alot of water, the process would happen quicker and smoother.

3. Water-DIET is good to release Belly-FAT!! It is recommended by some websites...

How long should we do it?
There is NOT A single page that write accurately about the time span. It depends on the person itself / you... And a site said also that it may NOT work for every people, so it is better for you to ask your doctor about it, if you want to do the Water-DIET...


Water as a help for Diet People..
Beside a DIET-Program, Water is also one of your way to avoid your hunger or your lust to take snacks... I have some suggestions for you guys..

1. If you have a thing in your tounge, the lust that makes you want to eat something, just take it to the other direction by drinking water.. Drink everytime you feel hungry...

2. To avoid your habit eating too much in every meal, how about couple of minutes before you eat, try to drink one full glass of water.. I believe you won't eat much again, cause you already full..

3. Place water every where in your reach area.. so if you hungry you can reach for your water faster.. ^_*

4. Prepare every morning 2 Litre of water in Bottles (small or BIG, up to you..) for your daily needs.. Make a target that you have to finish up those bottles of water every day.. try not to fail, so if in the evening your bottles are still full, you have to drink them all, and by doing that you won't be hungry anymore.. hehe..

The last one is also a tipp for Water-DIET..

I think I'd also like to try this one.. hehehe.. Well.. Good Luck on your DIET, everyone....
