Long-term weight gain typically happens at a miniscule 1-2 pounds per year, so you can’t feel the change but it’s happening and when you discover that you are fat it’s really hard and it’s even hard get back to the normal weight.
High-protein foods (think meats, dairy, nuts, beans) are thought to help with weight loss because of their ability to promote satiety, spare lean muscle mass, and help offset the slow in metabolism. GL was used because it reveals both carbohydrate quality and quantity. The more popular “glycemic index” (GI) is used to assess how a food will increase your blood sugar, but this doesn’t account for the amount of the food that you eat. GL accounts for both the food’s GI and portion eaten. High GL foods (think refined carbs) are thought to make weight gain more likely because they make your blood sugar rise rapidly—leading to insulin release, which favors fat storage.
You are eating what you always eat but because you are getting older, your metabolism will react different with the years.
The key is stay active, dedicate time to the gym, and focus your workout on cardio because cardio is the most powerful exercise also it’s important to play with different nutritional systems, do no stay just with one diet forever and do not follow the same eating system all the time. Just try different things and adapt yourself to the needs of your body depending of your age.
Yes it’s possible look younger and healthy for a long period of time but everything depends of how you understand your evolution and how big you set up your goals and the way you decide to eat to get there.
IMPORTANT TO KNOW:
Not all protein foods are created equal. Certain protein foods appeared to be better than others when it comes to preventing weight gain. Nuts, peanut butter, fish, yogurt and low-fat cheese were associated with weight loss while red meat and processed meat were associated with weight gain.
Eggs and cheese aren’t necessarily diet-busters. These foods were only associated with weight gain if the diet’s glycemic load was also high.
High glycemic load diets were worse for weight loss. Foods with a high glycemic load (think white bread, potatoes, soda) were associated with weight gain. A diet with a higher GL ranking is positively associated with weight gain. In fact, a 50-unit increase in daily glycemic load (about two bagels) resulted in a 1-pound weight gain every 4 years.
The type of protein consumed worked in combination with GL to affect weight. For example, someone who eats a high glycemic load diet plus a lot of red/processed meat would gain more weight than if he ate a low glycemic load diet with the same amount of red/processed meat.
ANY HOPE ?
Yes please workout minimum 5 times a week, drink a lot of water, and don’t forget that a balanced diet rich in whole grains, fruits and vegetables will help you maintain a low glycemic load. Choosing lean protein sources like chicken, fish, nut butter and low-fat cheese will reduce the amount of fat—particularly saturated fat—in your diet. Both glycemic load and protein type are indicators of your diet quality, and will affect your weight.
and it’s not just about to count the calories with the app because to be successful at maintaining a healthy weight, both the number of calories consumed and the quality of those calories matters.
