Virtual Personal Trainer's studies show that the choice of healthy meals and the consequent improvement of health is highly rewarding, increasing the probability of maintaining health-choice practices over time.

Losing Weight While Gaining Muscle

losing weight while gaining muscle
Yes! gaining muscle and losing fat is possible

Many readers have asked me this question: can I lose weight but increased my muscles? the answer is yes but, unfortunately, many times when we try to lose weight, we may end up having less muscle mass than when we started out. And sometimes we might even find our body fat% increased.

 

Why is this happening?

 

Because to lose weight we usually consume fewer calories than we burn, we are indirectly telling our bodies not to care much about muscle mass. This happens because "low calorie" strategies decrease the intracellular signaling necessary for the body to synthesize new muscle proteins.

Losing weight during the pandemic is possible

This COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic is affecting every aspect of our lives: from virtual meetings to telecommuting to go to work and changing meals habit to adapt to compulsory lockdowns. Observing public health measures and reducing exposure to the virus is fundamental to reduce the spread of this virus. While current vaccination programs are making things closer to normality, the current situation is giving us an amazing opportunity to get rid of some extra pounds (kg) and getting back in shape for the coming summer.

 

Here are some tips to improve our chances of succeeding with our weight loss (getting back in shape) plan.

Weight Loss by Coloring Foods

Coloring red, yellow and green can me you slim
Coloring red, yellow and green can me you slim

Virtual Personal Trainer's philosophy does not consist of telling what to eat as food choices vary across cultures and personal likes. So, for long-term weight loss and maintenance, I rather recommend to choosing foods wisely. Being more specific, focusing on “calorie density”  (i.e. how many calories are contained in a particular meal), can be fundamental for healthy eating and a sustainable Ideal Weight. For example, a full bowl of french fries is much denser and has a lot more calories than a bowl of mandarins because mandarins have more water.

 

Thus, the idea behind is to color foods by calorie density, using different colors: green, yellow, and red, from light to higher calories, and organizing our meal choices wisely so that we always and unconsciously eat healthily.

Stress and Weight Gain - Part 2

The relation of stress and weight gain
The relationship between Stress and Weight Gain

 

How your body and mind understand the states of "emergency"

 

Stress and weight gain are related to each other, like "cousins". In the first part of this series, we explored a very common psychological reaction to stress – emotional eating. Now, we dive into a physical response, triggered by the hormone cortisol.

Stress and Weight Gain

The relationship between stress and Weight Gain
The relationship between Stress and Weight Gain

How your mind and body interpret your states of "emergency"

 

Stress and weight gain often go hand in hand, so understanding your behavioural patterns in stressful situations can do wonders for your waistline, as well as your general health and wellbeing.

 

We live in a stress-full culture, so it is understandable if the efforts necessary to maintain or obtain the “perfect” weight and body shape just seem impossible sometimes. We should also reject all the body-shaming we “normal” people face – and subject ourselves to – when compared to the “beautiful” people championed by the media. Our cultural standards of beauty are often unattainable and just become another source of chronic dissatisfaction and stress. However, rejecting harmful standards doesn’t mean we should also reject sensible health recommendations. There is a proven link between chronic stress and weight gain, as well as a serious illness.

How Salt Intake Contributes to Weight Gain

How Salt Intake Contributes to Weight Gain
Salt and weight gain

Salt is arguably the most common seasoning in America and is used in a variety of foods. It is so prevalent that it is not at all uncommon for any given recipe to call for at least a pinch of salt. But while everyone knows that excessive salt intake can increase blood pressure, do people know how salt contributes to weight gain?

 

The most minor form of weight gain comes from water absorption since salt naturally has high water retention. It can show up on the weight scale as a few extra pounds, but the bigger problem with salt lies in how it encourages overeating. Part of the reason salt is so popular is because it can easily enhance a food’s taste, and this can lead to increased food consumption. It is also not uncommon for salted meals to encourage thirst, which will encourage people to reach for high-calorie beverages like soda and sweet tea. It is part of the reason that salt consumption has been linked to obesity.
