Certain habits can hinder your attempts to lose weight - and keep it away.
If you've changed your eating habits to focus on healthier foods and taken your workout seriously, you can expect to lose weight. However, the reality is that despite what you may have believed, weight loss is more complicated than calorie consumption versus calorie consumption.

Dietary supplement shows promise for reversing cardiovascular aging

Scientists have long known that restricting calories can fend off physiological signs of aging, with studies in fruit flies, roundworms, rodents and even people showing that chronically slashing intake by about a third can reap myriad health benefits and, in some cases, extend lifespan.

From a public health perspective, that advice would be impractical for many and dangerous for some.

But a new University of Colorado Boulder study published today indicates that when people consume a natural dietary supplement called nicotinomide riboside (NR) daily, it mimics caloric restriction, aka "CR," kick-starting the same key chemical pathways responsible for its health benefits.

Supplementation also tends to improve blood pressure and arterial health, particularly in those with mild hypertension, the study found.

1 Banana: I was a little surprised to find banana as a fat burning food. 
The bananas provide enough fiber for the body and can actually slow down your food cravings, making you feel full for a longer period of time. It also has a type of fiber called as "resistant starch" which resists digestion and therefore add no calories to the body, instead of it reaches the colon and act as a dietary fiber. This resistant starch, according to wikipedia, ferments in the digestive tract, producing products …
