7 Tips To Lose Weight Faster

Let’s face it, losing weight is not so easy. The weight loss process is long and requires a lot of patience and persistence. Following a diet and exercising is very important to eliminate unwanted fat. However, if you are a person who is lazy, losing weight can be more difficult.

And in today’s times, where everyone is looking for health, or at least trying, there seems to be no place for those crazy diets anymore. However, it only seems because unfortunately it is not so. There is no one who does not want a very big gain with minimal effort. But whatever the effort, it won’t work that way.

One of the goals most people do at the beginning of the year is to lose weight. Even more that we spent a year practically indoors, it is almost certain that everyone gained more weight . Well, we are already in the fifth month of the new year and a lot of people may still not have found the right way to reduce their measurements.

Because of this, chef Renato Caleffi, a pioneer in organic and functional cuisine, gives some tips for those who want to lose weight quickly. We show these tips here.

1 – Do not eat gluten

The chef’s first tip is to remove gluten from the diet . That’s because it inflames and causes bloating.

2 – Do not eat dairy

Another thing to avoid if you are looking to lose weight is dairy. They should be removed from the diet because, like gluten, they also inflame. And it is precisely this inflammation that causes weight gain.

3 – Avoid industrialized products

In the rush of day-to-day, sometimes we opt for the quickest way to eat something. But if you are trying to lose weight, the best thing to do is to prioritize fresh foods. They are the foods that don’t come in cans, without labels and that are usually found at fairs.

4 – Eat anti-inflammatory ingredients

As we saw with foods to be avoided, inflammation results in weight gain. So there’s nothing more logical than eating anti-inflammatory ingredients for faster weight loss. Some examples of anti-inflammatory ingredients are spices, turmeric, chili pepper, antioxidant foods.

5 – Replace bread with roots

Many people eat a bread, which has gluten, with turkey breast, which is an industrialized food. So, the chef gives the tip to eat roots instead, such as yam, yam and manioc, and use olive oil or tahini as a side dish, in place of butter.

6 – Drink liquids during the day

In addition to food, liquid is also very important in the weight loss process. Real teas such as chamomile or mint are good options to help you lose weight.

In addition to teas, another good thing to drink are green juices that combine anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, detoxifying ingredients and other juices, such as pineapple with green apple, cabbage and cucumber.

7 – Don’t go without eating

As much as the chef has given tips on things to be banned from the diet, it is not recommended to go without food. The important thing is to eat in moderation. Even because going without food is not good for the weight loss phase.

Oceans May Run Out of Fish Until 2048

Over the years, the planet has been suffering from increased pollution and changes in ecosystems caused by humans. And both animals and men have been facing the consequences. Pollution statistics are alarming. The human being is, by itself, an animal full of disgusting quirks and that usually pollutes the habitat of other living beings, without thinking about the consequences that this can generate and how this pollution can come back and harm it.

And the footprints left by humanity do not disappear easily. As shown in the Netflix documentary, “Seaspiracy”. The production exposes the dark side of the fishing industry and has caused a lot of controversy since it debuted. One of the most shocking statements in the documentary is that, because of fishing, all the fish in the sea will have disappeared by 2048.

Affirmation

To find out if this statement is really true, eight experts in fisheries science, marine science and ecology were consulted. Of those, seven responded that it is “extremely unlikely”.

According to Ali Tabrizi, the documentary’s director and narrator, “if current fishing trends continue, we will see oceans practically empty by the year 2048.” The claim has been repeated on several news sites since the first time it was made in 2006. But where does this claim come from?

It came from an article published by Boris Worm and his colleagues in 2006. In the article, they looked at declining marine populations and species. With this, they found that the loss of marine biodiversity has major effects on the ecosystem.

And in one sentence in the final paragraph they say that “the current trend is of great concern because it projects a global collapse of all currently fished rates by the mid-21st century.”

Contestation

However, Michael Melnychuk, an expert in fisheries science at the University of Washington, points out some problems with this prediction made in 2006. According to him, “the authors’ definitions of ‘collapse’ are based on capture data, but these do not necessarily reflect the abundance of fish populations”.

Furthermore, Melnychuk points out that the method the authors used to extrapolate the data into the future was unrealistic.

Maine University oceanography expert Robert Steneck also noted that “three years after the initial publication Worm pointed out that many fish stocks are rebuilding globally.”

In addition to these two experts, there were also several scientific publications strongly criticizing this 2048 prediction for the same reasons highlighted by Melnychuk. But unfortunately the statement kept circulating.

And Melnychuk says the forecast for 2048 is inaccurate because “it assumes our hands are tied and these trends will continue indefinitely.”

Danger

However, all experts agree with the documentary that overfishing is a very serious problem. And University of Florida Fisheries Science expert Holden Harris says, “Today, it’s likely that 1/3 of the world’s fish stocks are overexploited or depleted. This is certainly a problem that deserves widespread concern”.

And Alec Christie, a marine biology expert at the University of Cambridge, goes on to say, “We all agree that your message about the ecological damage of industrial fisheries is an urgent issue, but we need to present facts, not fiction, and come together, build consensus and use rational arguments to convince people to change”.
