Enhanced Keto A high-protein breakfast can include: eggs, oats, seed butter and nuts, quinoa porridge, sardines and chia seed pudding. Sleep well Numerous studies have shown that sleeping less than 5-6 hours a night is associated with an increased incidence of obesity. There are many reasons for this. Research suggests that insufficient or poor quality sleep slows down the process in which the body converts calories into energy, called metabolism. When the metabolism is less effective, the body can store unused energy in the form of fat. Furthermore, insufficient sleep can increase the production of insulin and cortisol, which stimulate fat storage. The duration of sleep also affects the regulation of appetite-controlling hormones, leptin and ghrelin. Leptin, in particular, sends signals of fullness to the brain. 50 years have arrived? Do you find yourself having annoying rolls of fat at your stomach? Well, as you know, you're not the only one. At 50, metabolism slows down and the absence of physical activity, along with stress, do the rest: it is very easy to be overweight. But the extra pounds are not a sentence. Even at 50, with a little commitment, it is possible to resume physical fitness, which is important not only for aesthetic reasons but above all for health. In the case of a sedentary lifestyle, a woman and a man do not need a very different calorie intake. A man who has to lose weight in fact must take more or less 1500 calories a day, while a woman can reach about 1200/1300. What changes are the amounts of nutrients that should be acquired. Here is a list of the 5 elements, with relative doses, that the diet of a man over 50 must contain. 1) Slow-absorption complex carbohydrates . Carbohydrates must be 50% of the total caloric intake. The most suitable ones are the slow-absorbing complex carbohydrates, useful to avoid the glycemic peak and which allow not to exhaust the energy reserves too quickly. They are carbohydrates that are found for example in non-starchy vegetables, such as spinach, cabbage, tomatoes, cauliflower, cucumber, etc.: foods that allow you to have a slow but constant supply of energy, even after meals.
