OBESITY........The problem is now Global and Huge - Rules for Quick and clean Fat loss!

Obesity is often portrayed as a Western problem, with under-nutrition found in poorer countries.
But the truth is more complex. Nine out of 10 countries are in the grip of a health epidemic known as the "double burden" - where overweight and undernourished people live side-by-side.
A worldwide explosion in the availability of unhealthy foods, a shift towards office jobs and the growth of transport and television are among the many causes.
Often, this double burden occurs not only within a community, but also within the same family. It can even happen within the same person, who is overweight but lacking in vital nutrients. Alternatively, they can be part of a phenomenon known as "thin-fat", where people appear to be a healthy weight, but carry large amounts of hidden fat.

Every country in the world is struggling with a nutrition problem of some kind.
The number of people suffering from chronic food deprivation reached an estimated 815m in 2016 - a 5% increase in two years. Much of the increase was in Africa, where 20% of people were malnourished.
Meanwhile, obesity rates have tripled over the last 40 years. Globally, more than 600m adults are obese, while 1.9bn are overweight. The number of obese people in developing countries is catching up with the developed world.
Solution -  Eat clean, lose fat quick.
Eating healthy, just like fitness, is a gradual progression. You adopt small, new habits over time and commit to them as a regular part of your lifestyle. A good diet should allow you to enjoy your favorite foods in moderation without suffering any major setbacks to your health goals.
Know your macronutrients (or macros) - Protein, Carbohydrates, and Fat.  As I mentioned in my previous post, protein is the building block of muscle and critical in aiding recovery.  Carbohydrates and fats both aid in energy production, though carbohydrates tend to be used for immediate energy needs as they are broken down by your body more rapidly.  Fats help regulate everything from body temperature to hormone production and cell function.  Of these three, be aware that fats are the most calorie dense per gram.  Protein = 4 calories per gram.  Carbohydrates = 4 calories per gram.  Fats = 9 calories per gram.
Be mindful of your daily caloric intake.  While a phrase like "calorie deficit" might sound like a miserable exercise in deprivation, the total amount of calories you've consumed throughout the day is what matters most when it comes to fat loss.  Don't be fooled by what you may have heard...it's not when you eat or how big your portion sizes are.  Skip breakfast and eat a giant meal before bed if you don't believe me.  
This is why programs like Weight Watchers and Zone Diet have been so successful...you don't necessarily have to eliminate your favorite foods but you need assign them a place in your diet.   200 calories can be one hot dog, a snickers bar, 6 cups of broccoli, or giant handful of grilled chicken.  If you own a smartphone, there's a free app called MyFitnessPal that has nutrition information on almost any food you can think of (even alcohol).  Start to monitor!
Eat more protein.  I'm a broken record when it comes to this rule.  Most people don't realize how little they're consuming daily.  Increasing your protein intake will decrease your appetite for other foods, provide sustained energy throughout the day, burn fat, and help build Lean Body Mass (LBM)....your body's fat burning furnace.  Make it your goal to consume 3/4 of your bodyweight (lbs) in grams of protein DAILY
Protein: Lean Meats, Turkey Bacon, Fish, Eggs, Fat Free Cottage Cheese, Greek Yogurt (sugar free)
Carbohydrates:  Green Vegetables, Root Vegetables (ie. sweet potato), Peppers, Mushrooms, Black beans, Lentils
Fats (in moderation..ie. not more than half your bodyweight in grams daily): Nuts, Avocados, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil
Protein: Wings, Burgers, BBQ, Hot Dogs, Deli Meats, Cheese
Carbs: High GI foods....sodas, breads, pastas, potatoes, rice, chips, cereals, cookies, fries, crackers, sweeteners (honey, sugar, etc), and beer.
Fat: Margarine, Butter, Mayonnaise, Cheese
Eat natural, whole foods and always read the label.  Humor me for a second and read through the nutrition facts and ingredients on the can or box next time you're aisle shopping.  Sodium nitrate, sulfites, and butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) are just a few common preservatives you might find on the label.  While these are great for making sure your food stays edible for a year, they're not doing any wonders for your body.  
Friends, the time is short. "Where will you spent eternity - in heaven or hell". This is the time to work out your salvation...Now is the acceptable time.

Repent of your sins, believe the word of God and accept His Son Jesus Christand the Holy Spirit will be sent to you, to guide and teach you all truth.  He will also show you things to come.  Will you accept Him today?

Say this Prayer: 

Lord Jesus I come to you as a sinner.
I am sorry for my sins, forgive me.
I believe you died for my sins, and was raised for my justification. 
Come into my heart be my Lord and Saviour, 
Give me the grace to serve You in truth and spirit. 
Thank You for saving my soul - I am born again!

His grace be with you all.
