Coming to your mirror next month: flatter abs, a tighter butt, and a body that can’t wait for the wear-almost-nothing days of summer It’s easy with these steps…
HERE’S HOWTO TELL YOUR DNATO …
“TURN ON” YOUR FAT-BURNING GENES Fat genes? Forget about it. New science suggests that you can reprogram your DNA to permanently give you the body you want. It seems that every bite of food you eat contains hidden information that “talks to” your DNA. Based on that info, your DNA then tells your body whether to lose or gain weight, and to increase or decrease your appetite, says Mark Hyman, M.D., author of UltraMetabolism. Turning on the parts of your DNA that help you lose weight and turning off the parts that make you hold on to it is as simple as making the right food choices.
… MAKE YOU FEEL FULL FASTER.
On the occasions where you must have sweets, eat sugar, not high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS). HFCS, a sweetener used in soft drinks, apple juice, candy, fruit-flavored yogurt, and other foods, makes you hungrier than regular sugar, says Dr. Flyman. When you eat a small amount of sugar, appetite-controlling hormones kick in, eventually telling your body that you’ve had enough. But these hormones don’t engage when you eat FIFCS, so you can consume volumes of the stuff and never end up feeling like you’ve had enough.
…CRANK UP YOUR METABOLISM.
Fill up on watermelon, snap peas, strawberries, tender baby greens, and other succulent summer produce. Foods in their natural state nonprocessed foods such as beans, nuts, seeds, and whole grains contain chemicals including powerful plant nutrients and fiber that you need for your metabolism to run effectively.
That means you should eat sunflower seeds and raisins instead of peanut M&Ms, olive tapenade on whole-grain bread instead of packaged cheese and crackers, and plain yogurt with real fruit instead of fruit-flavored yogurt.
No matter what you eat, though, you should do it before you’re ravenous. Long intervals between meals tell your body to produce chemicals geared toward preventing starvation, so your metabolism slows down. Keep it tuned up by eating appropriately when you’re hungry.
Go transfat-free. Transfats attach to a certain part of your cells that tells your DNA to slow your fat-burning, slow your metabolism, and make your body more resistant to insulin, says Dr. Flyman. But when healthy fats such as omega-3s lock into that spot, they send a whole different set of messages that trigger fat-burning and improve your sensitivity to insulin.
