When you are eating your rice and stew, about half of the plate should contain sliced cabbages, lettuce, spinach, cucumber and so on.

When you feel hungry often, you will satisfy that desire and as a result gain weight, and so the amount  of your back fat will increase. However, when you eat foods that keep you satisfied for long periods of time, you will be able to reduce the number of times you eat in a day and so you will not gain back fat.

  • Cut sugar from your diet.
  • Eat oatmeal or wheat porridge with bread and a slice of orange for breakfast.
  • Consume healthy fats such as olive oil, avocados, nuts, and seeds every day.
  • Eat bran bread, unpolished rice, and wheat.
  • Citrus fruits contain fiber and can keep you satisfied for long periods of time. Therefore, eat a tangerine or grapefruit or orange a day.
  • Eat proteins such as rabbit meat, beans, duck meat, chicken (without the skin) with starchy carbohydrates (cassava, potatoes, yams), nuts, legumes, and whole grains.

 

Conclusion

Adopting a lifestyle which involves targeted exercises and eating the right amounts of the right foods and working at your goal in an effective manner can help you lose weight and, as a result, rid yourself of back fat.

5 Benefits of Wearing Ankle Weights

Exercise is an important activity any healthy human being must engage in because of the benefits it gives to the body. One way to enhance your exercise is to use ankle weights. The benefits of wearing ankle weights while exercising are numerous, and I want to take a look at some of them.

Benefits of Wearing Ankle Weights While Running

It Boosts Your Endurance

Ankle weights can help you to boost your endurance, if you have the habit of running or jogging many miles a day.

How does it do this?

Ankle weights add weight to your body thereby increasing the resistance your body experiences when you are running or jogging. As a result, you need to exert a higher amount of energy to overcome this resistance. When you expend more energy in this way, it causes your heart to beat faster, and your breathing rate to increase. The intensification in both your heart rate and respiration rate gives you the ability to run for longer hours, which ultimately boosts your endurance.

 

It Can Help You Burn More Calories

Putting on ankle weights will force you to expend a lot more energy to cook, do your gardening, take a stroll in your yard, or play basketball in the house. Consequently, your body will burn calories more efficiently and you will lose weight.

 

It Can Help  You Cope with Respiratory Diseases

Research done by the University of Maryland shows that ankle weights can help people suffering from respiratory diseases such as asthma. To get this benefit, you need to attach the ankle weight to your chest. The ankle weights make you work your breathing muscles harder which helps to make them stronger, when you put them on your chest, and also helps to make them more efficient.

 

Ankle Weights Can Give You a Flat Stomach

If you want a flat abdomen to make you look more attractive, then you need to use ankle weights when you are exercising your abdomen . The ankle weights help to keep your lower abdominal muscles contracted whilst you are exercising, which eventually helps to tone them and prevent bulging.

Ankle Weights Are Versatile

Ankle weights allow you to do your favorite exercises when you are in different positions. You can use ankle weights when you are running or jogging as well as when you are climbing a mountain, riding a bicycle, walking, or even when you are seated, without robbing yourself of the benefits you need. Therefore, it allows you flexibility in your exercise regime since you can do a variety of exercises.

 

Some Don’ts When You Use Ankle Weights to Exercise

Although the benefits of wearing ankle weights are numerous,  there are certain precautions you must take when you want to use them to exercise:

  • Don’t use them for a long time when you are doing brisk walking. According to the University of Kentucky walking for a long time with ankle weights on can put too much stress on the joints of your ankles, knees, and hips which can eventually lead to these joints getting damaged.
  • Don’t use ankle weights if you are obese.
  • Don’t use ankle weights if you are underweight.
  • Don’t run quickly when you are wearing ankle weights—it can cause injuries to your knees, ankles, and back.
  • Don’t wear ankle weights when you are cycling because it can cause injuries to muscles at the back of your legs.
