Updated: Oct 10, 2019

If you have a problem keeping a healthy weight, you may want to try the following tips.

Grazing is a pattern of eating that involves consuming multiple meals throughout the day. The idea is that if you eat small portions every few hours, it will keep your hunger under control, metabolism elevated and energy increased. By adopting this eating pattern, you will obtain other health benefits as well. A study conducted at the University of Cambridge found that eating more frequently lowered levels of bad cholesterol (LDL), according to the Cleveland Clinic.

Stock up on healthy foods that are high in nutrients and low in fat, sugar and sodium. Chicken breast, lean beef, fish, turkey loins, eggs, low-fat dairy products, whole grains, fruits, vegetables and beans are quality foods. Eat a small portion every two to three hours. Combine protein and complex carbs with every meal. You also can make vegetable drinks using a powerful blender, check for the Green drink for detoxification, the Red drink to enhance energy and the bean drink for protein supply.

Apple cider vinegar and healthy weight loss benefits have been utilized for centuries. This completely natural way to shed pounds is a true home remedy used and tried throughout the world. Take one or two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in a glass of water after each meal.

Ginger works as a natural appetite suppressant to reduce food consumption and helps to lose weight. Ginger is nearly calorie-free and a thermogenic food which raises the body temperature, boosts metabolism and burns more calories than a simple diet alone. Blend a small piece of fresh ginger (with the skin), a quarter of an inch, half a lemon and half an apple with 1 cup of water each time. Drink 2 or 3 times a day. Blanch the ginger root in boiling water for a few seconds to sterilize it before using.

Water you need to drink 64 OZ a day. Researchers in Germany report that water consumption increases the rate at which people burn calories.

Exercise 5 days a week for 30 minutes. Tai Chi, Yogilates, Pilates and Yuga are recommended: these slow movements, stretching and balancing exercises are safe and low impact to joints, but also help burn off calories.

Acupuncture helps energy flow, improves circulation and promotes a healthy weight. For more information call Dr. Lu at (661) 513-9265, Ping's Acupuncture / Bamboo Acupuncture.
