How to start your metabolism? Of course, with products that enter the body, split by digestive enzymes, they are partially digested in the stomach, but a large proportion of them (including the fat component) is absorbed in the small intestine, and the final products are derived through the colon. It is obvious that for the normal metabolism of the longest organ in the body – intestines – must run like clockwork, but we then sat down on a diet, then eat again, violating his work …
HOW LONG DOES IT
In a normal meal in the small intestine is moving at a speed of 2,5 cm per minute and digested five or six hours. In the colon waste spend much more time: seven hours in the cecum, nine – in the colon, 34 hours – in the sigmoid and straight. Add to this a few hours that the food remains in the stomach, and get exactly two days for the whole digestive cycle.
A tendency to constipation this time increases by several times, and therefore increases, and weight. The fact that accumulated in the intestines of human waste – undigested nutrients – continue to be absorbed into the blood, and eaten to digest than the standard 60-70% and almost 100%. As a result, those who have bowel lazy, get out of the usual portions of food 2 times more calories and will inevitably get better, also delayed in the body “production residues” poison the body from the inside soaked, toxins enter the bloodstream and spread it throughout the body in violation of the liver, compromising the skin and hair.
But the lazy body on purpose. Constipation – a sign of decreased activity of the thyroid gland, which determines the rate of metabolic processes in general and in particular the burning of fat, and still is a consequence of a sedentary lifestyle. If you’re not paying attention to fitness, a little move, and intestinal motility is sluggish.
Do not less than 10 thousand steps a day: walking affects the motility better than any laxative. If there is no time for a walk, you can help the intestines with special medications, but always run to the drugstore is not: pharmaceuticals, of course, relieve constipation, but often addictive and subsequently aggravate the disease.
By the way, wake up lazy intestines, forcing him to work actively in the morning, helps a glass of cold water drunk before breakfast. The same effect has a glass of warm boiled water with the juice of half a lemon at night.
The more actively absorbed nutrients, the more they are deferred in reserve. Therefore, to reduce weight, you should not give to get eaten products from the intestine into the bloodstream.
These drugs bind in the intestines of the fat or carbohydrates, not allowing them to digest, so you can lose weight without changing the usual power supply system.
However, in practice, things are not so smooth: revolts against bowel drug sabotage. “Blocked” fats cause severe diarrhea, and can not digest carbohydrates fermentation begins, which is accompanied by increased gas production. In addition, in both cases, suffer intestinal microflora and develops over time dysbiosis, which leads to the exchange failures, increase blood cholesterol levels and a set of extra pounds.
By the way, many people have weight problems begin after taking antibiotics, because drugs destroy the intestinal bacteria. That’s why doctors prescribing a course of antibiotics and probiotics at the same time prescribed that stimulate the growth of natural micro-flora of the intestine.
Despite all efforts, you can not lose weight? Turn in the analysis for bacteria overgrowth! If the number of beneficial bacteria in the gut is less than pathogens, it is necessary to take immediate action. In severe cases have to – but only after consulting your doctor! – Take first course of bacteriophages (drugs that destroy harmful bacteria), and then drink formulations with probiotic microorganisms. But most of all to correct dysbiosis enough to choose a diet with lots of dairy products that are beneficial to the intestinal microflora. As soon as peace is established in the abdomen, weight will decrease.
To improve the performance of the intestine, especially after a hearty meal too many taken of enzymes that remove the feeling of heaviness in the stomach. But if you worried about excess weight, it is better to leave the table with a slight feeling of hunger than to swallow pills. Additional enzymes facilitate digestion, and as a result eaten digested more completely, and hence increase in calories and weight will increase. Do not forget that the level of absorbability and increases the enzyme bromelain, which is in great quantity in the pineapple. Therefore, regular ingestion of yellow pulp also can affect the shape.
EFFECT OF BALLOONS
Everyone knows that to lose weight, you need to eat low-calorie foods – vegetables, fruits, vegetables. That’s just the intestine was firmly opposed to a vegetarian diet. The information contained in the plant tissue provokes boiling, the stomach begins to ache and swell. As a result, the scales show that you lost weight, and measuring tape indicates that waist circumference increased. How can that be?
Best in this situation is to start a food diary. Indicate in it, what you eat and how to respond to a meal the intestine. List of products that cause flatulence, is large enough, but, fortunately, the response to each individual. Someone turns into a balloon after eating some spinach, some – after drinking a glass of milk. Exclude any suspect foods from your diet does not make sense, you must first make sure that the problem relates to them. By the way, get rid of the gassy will rate a doctor appointed by the probiotics. In some cases, you can check and composition of intestinal gas: it is capable of a lot to talk about nutrition errors.
For example, the presence of hydrogen shows too many sweets in the diet and / or intolerance to milk sugar-lactose. All these are causes of bloating.
SECRETS OF PLANT DIET
But what if the food diary was noted almost all plant foods? How to lose weight then?
The main thing – the right combination of fruits and vegetables. The tendency to exclude from his flatulence menu of salads, raw vegetables. To eat cherries, pineapple, oranges and other acidic fruits, make a two-hour break before setting the table for dairy products and grains. And make a list of forbidden sweet fruit: firstly, they have a lot of calories, and secondly, they cause fermentation in the gut.
Tip: tomatoes, cucumbers, onions eat not in a salad, but separately. Other vegetables are boiled or baked. Please note the following fact: beans, peas, beans and lentils are losing up to 90% of its gas-forming properties, if they are soaked for 12 hours per day sprout in a wet towel or cook for 30 minutes in plenty of water with spices – ginger, savory and seeds fennel.
Reduce flatulence help chinese massage. Find a point located midway between the navel and the lower end of the sternum. Gentle pressure on her middle fingers, perform rotational movements but in a clockwise direction within one to two minutes. Stroke the abdomen in a clockwise direction, then immediately before use dry heat – woolen scarf or shawl.
Enter in the diet carminative teas or take special drugs from flatulence, if you a supporter of vegetarianism. If these measures do not help, then the menu should be replaced by vegetable protein diet that includes lean meat, fish, cheese, yogurt.
Drink plenty of fluids to “wash” from the body fat decomposition. It is recommended to use an alkaline mineral water without gas: it neutralizes the acids formed during the combustion of fat.
