[the_ad id=”4667″]

It is important to combine a healthy diet with a vigorous exercise program with healthy lifestyle habits. These questions raise the question: What lifestyle habits are necessary for a healthy life? And what effects do they have on weight loss? These are the questions that this article will address.

First, let’s emphasize that we will be focusing on smoking, stress, and sleep. We won’t be discussing other aspects such as sexual and social behavior.

Smoking

Smoking cigarettes has one advantage: it stimulates your metabolism. Smokers who smoke a pack a day burn 250 calories from this activity. Because your body needs to process 250 additional calories, it is likely that you will gain 2 pounds if you quit smoking.

As absurd as it sounds, you will likely revert to smoking if you fear that you’ll gain weight. You should not quit smoking because your metabolism will recover in approximately 2 months. You can lose any extra weight by eating right and exercising regularly.

You should also consider the health benefits of quitting smoking when it comes to exercise and weight loss. You will be able to do more intense, longer and more frequent cardio exercises because your heart, arteries, and lungs are healthier.

Stress

Yes, stress can cause weight gain. This is true on both the psychological and physiological levels. The neuroendocrine system activates fight-or flee hormones when faced with stressful situations. These hormones are cortisol, CRH, and adrenaline. While CRH and adrenaline may reduce appetite, but this effect is temporary. Cortisol will increase appetite.

Emotional eating can also be a result of stress, even if the stressors are long gone. The death of a loved one in an accident can cause extreme stress to the emotional state of the grieving person. Food is his only source of comfort. Many stories have told of people becoming larger as they grieve.

Sleep

Two hormones, ghrelin and leptin, are responsible for weight loss in relation to sleep. These hormones control hunger (ghrelin), and fullness (leptin) in a system called “check-and-balance”.

Insufficient sleep can cause your levels of leptin to drop and your levels of ghrelin to rise. This means that even after eating a large meal, you feel hungry and don’t feel satisfied. This is the start of weight gain and overeating.

If you are looking to lose weight, it is important to quit smoking, manage your stress levels, and get enough sleep. These are the hallmarks for a healthy lifestyle. These goals can be achieved in many ways, including through exercise, healthy eating habits, and relaxation techniques. The most important thing is to get started.
