Today most expresses in THE UNITED STATES “sprang forwards” evolving our clocks for longer hours of evening and night daylight. If this has you sense slow you by itself aren’t.

According to analyze in “Current Biology” our inner daily rhythms, known as the circadian clocks, get a little testy with this right time tinkering. Studies indicate it is light and darkness that keeps our internal clock ticking on time. Sufficient rest performs an integral role in weight weight and loss maintenance.

We’ve been told since before our weight loss surgery that people must follow a high protein diet for life.

Recommendations vary from center to middle about how much protein is adequate for weight loss and weight maintenance. You may generally listen to anything from 70 grams a day to 100 grams each day. High protein intake is particularly important during the early days and weeks following surgery (any surgery) because the proteins facilitate healing. Many patients turn to protein drinks or protein energy bars to ensure they are consuming adequate amounts of protein. One ounce of animal or dairy protein generally has 6-7 grams of protein per ounce and soy protein has about 8 grams of protein per ounce.

Sometimes getting the recommended protein requirements while regarding of the rules is a little daunting, taking into consideration the small capacity of the gastric pouch especially. Many post-surgical weight loss patients use protein drinks to improve their protein intake while keeping fat and carbohydrate intake at appropriate levels. In the picture above I’m like a Berrilicious Protein Shake.

Following a high proteins diet helps us lose weight because proteins gets the highest thermic effect of any food item: it requires more energy (calorie consumption) to metabolicly process than it includes. Simple sugars require very little energy to process thus a caloric surplus occurs leading to stalled weight loss or weight gain.

In addition to improving metabolism a higher protein diet handles the metabolic hormones: insulin and glucagon. When these hormones are in balance we don’t have swings in blood sugars that cause energy to surge and then plummet. Often we as patients have a tendency to relax the “protein first” rule the further out we get from our surgery. This results in a weight reduction plateau or putting on weight Commonly. We often wish to “make contact with normal” but in order to maintain weight loss and use the surgical tool it’s important to adhere to the basic guidelines outlined by our surgical centers. This is not a abuse, however. Whenever we are in metabolic hormone balance we feel so excellent, mentally shape, actually strong and well and emotionally steady. Talk about a great payoff.

In other words, the brain actively defends the higher amount of excess fat mass, using strong biochemical makes that compel us to eat back the lost weight. Nearly all dieters will know about this… weight loss is often easy in the beginning, when motivation is high especially, but very soon hunger, cravings and a reduced desire for exercise occur.
