Scientific studies show that for successful weight loss you don’t need to diet like many people do, but you need to eat the right kind of foods that promote healthy weight like the nutrient-rich food.
If people are overweight, it’s usually because they eat and drink more calories than they need. Here we will help you to reduce the number of calories you consume.
Some people are naturally thin and can eat more compared to others and don’t store fat in their body.Others gain weight easily even they are doing exercise.The reseion is that the other one have slow metabolism so the extra carbohydrate store in body.
The reasion behind it is partly genetic partly down to the factor which we control.
If someone want to loss weight he/she should check their BMI(body mass index) before start the weight loss process.Here are the calorie need for men 1900kcal and for women 1400kcal per day.
In the begining you feel deprived because you are unable to eat your favorite delicious food.But after following the two week of plan you will enjoy the whole plan and will start refrain taking the food which are not beneficial during the journey of loosing the weight.
We should aware about what we are eating,the processed food look good and attract you to eat,but when we become
conscious of what is contained in processed refined,neutrient-poor foods,we can start looking in different way.we will be less drawn towards them.
The food associated with obesity as well as reduced immune function,increased risk of heart disease as well as increase blood sugar levels.
characteristic of obesity:
generally over weight with high level of body fat if >30 peercent for women and >20 percent for men.
If you can’t get away with overeating,the extra calorie get stored in body as fat.
wide waist and hip with waist predominate over the hip.

The non-essential amino acids serine and glycine are used in multiple anabolic processes that support cancer cell growth and proliferation.The study, published online in the journal Nature.
On cutting the serine and glycine in the diet of mice ,it slowed down the progress of lymphoma and intestinal cancer.
According Researcher at the Cancer Research UK Beatson Institute and the university of Glasgow found on cutting down of amino acid like serine and glycin in diet of mice it shows the less symptoms or development of tumor growth in the mice and also prolong survival.
The researchers also found that the special diet made some cancer cells more susceptible to chemicals in cells called reactive oxygen species.
Chemotherapy and radiotherapy increase the level of these chemical,research also suggest on using special formulated may be conventional to reduce the cancer.
Now the next step is to look forward on cancer patient to check feasibility and safty of this treatment.
Proffesor Karen Vousden says”This type of diet would be a short term measure and should be controlled and monitored under the doctor.Our diet is very complex and protein-which are main source of amino acid are vital for our health.Its mean the patient can not cut out these amino acid by simply following the home made diet”it must be under the supervision of doctor.
Amino acid are the building blocks that cells need to make protein.Amino acids make up a large proportion of our cells, muscles and tissue as it is the building blocks of protein and our bodies are made up of 20% protein. A healthy cell has capability to make their own serine and glysine protein but a cancer cell is more dependent on diet to get these protein.
However,study also shows that diet was less effective in the tumor with an activated kras gene,like pancreatic cancer because faulty gene is able to manufacturing their awn serine and glysine it can be best targeted by diet therapy.
We are regularly advised to cut our consumption of sweet foods,but there’s something special about honey.Honey is the unique product of swarms of bees that cover a six-mile radius during nectar collection.Anything that takes so much work to make must be good.Honey is sweeter than sugar,with 65 calories per tablespoon as opposed to white sugar 48.Calories apart it has some surprising health benefits
Honey is not a nutritional powerhouse.It contains trace amounts of B vitamin,amino acids and minerals,but it’s really no more nutritious than plain sugar.If honey gets attention from doctors,it’s for other reason.Its thick syrupy texture makes it a natural for easing sore throat pain,especially when it’s added to a hot lemon or a soothing tea such as camomile. But honey does.It kills bacteria and helps cuts and wounds to heal faster.It is a natural laxative.It appears to reduce the pain of stomach ulcers.And it is a quick-acting energy source that
can reinvigorate tired muscle faster than you say.Scientists have actually found that athletes perform better when they eat a little honey.
Infection was the greatest threat to the health of human before the antibodies.Even small cut may turn into a life threat,which way doctors often carried honey in their little bags.Honey contain hydrogen peroxide and propolis,a compound that kill bacteria.Even tody, some doctors believe that honey might be a superior wound dressing in some cases.Indeed ,it works so well that a number of manufacture sell it for dressing for hard-to-heal wounds.
The high sugar content in honey pull moisture from wounds and so bacteria are unable to survives without moisture.It also lock out harmful external contaminants.And honey is inexpensive it may be ideal choice in many countries to modern creams.
Back in 1970s,Surgeons reported that women who had a gynaecological surgery had shorter hospital stay when incisions were coated with honey and no sign of infection.Studies in india show that burns dressed with honey heal more quickly and scarring than with coated with silver sulphadiazine,a conventional burn treatment.
Honey has even been used to treat superficial eye problems.In a study of more than 100 patient with eye disorder that didn’t respond to conventional treatment,doctors tested a honey ointment 85% of cases reported an improvement. Applying honey to your eyes(don’t do it without without asking your doctor)may cause a brief stinging sensation and some redness,but in unlikely to cause other side effects.
WHERE HONEY COME FROM?
Bees sip a little nectar when they make their flowery rounds,but they carry most of it back to hive and stash it in the hexagonal wax cells of the honeycomb to nourish young bees.The liquid nectar turns into honey when moisture evaporates.The finished product is mainly sugar-frutose and dextrose-plus a little bit of pollen,wax,proteins,vitamins and minerals.
HELPS IMPROVE SKIN:
Its anti-bacterial qualities are particularly useful for the skin, and, when used with the other ingredients, honey can also be moisturising and nourishing. For a powerful home beauty treatment for which you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen already.
IT SOOTHES STOMACH ULCERS:
Honey may reduce the ulcer symptoms and reduce healing time also.Honey appears to reduce inflammation,stimulate blood flow and enhance the growth of epithlial cells,the ones exposed along the interior of the stomach or intestine.Studies have also shown that hney kills the bacteria responsible for most ulcers.Raw honey is more beneficial that a processed honey,in processed active compound may neutralised.
HELPS PREVENT CANCER & HEART DISEASE:
Honey contains flavonoids, antioxidants which help reduce the risk of some cancers and heart disease.
Never give honey to children under the age 1,as it may contain a small number of spores.The spores don’t thrive in the intestine of adults and older children,But they are able to multiply in babies,possibly causing a serious form of food poisoning known as infant botulism.
