  1. 1. It is that time of the year when we at SG Mobility fill shoeboxes with something special to make Christmas an unforgettable time for less fortunate children. We are happy to share this joy with little angels to fulfil their wishes. ENRICHING OUR MINDS WELCOME TO OUR SPRING ISSUE 5 TIPS TO SPEND YOUR MONEY WISELY  Create a list and stick to it- Make sure you do not over spend and save for an emergency.  Stick to a budget- Spending on unnecessary things will drain your pocket. Keep calm, it’s your cash  Compare online prices to have options- Online prices simplify shopping hours to save time. Remember to not follow scams when using your credit card.  Be card wise- If you decide to use your credit card, make sure to pay it off in time. Holiday purchases can push you to debt ratios.  Play it safe- One of the worst ways to lose money during the holidays is theft. Don’t carry more than one credit card, in case your wallet or purse is lost or stolen. Don’t leave packages, laptops or cellphones visible on your back or front seat ISSUE #6 Super Park , Warehouse A Corner of Brollo & Barbara Road, Isando, Gauteng 1460 Pg1 NOV/DEC 2014 SG|MOBILITY NEWSLETTER Gifts for the little angels from SG employees
  2. 2. HEALTH AND WELLNESS CORNER If at your current weight your daily energy requirement is for example 1800 kcal and you want to “diet” you would likely reduce your calorie intake to 1500 kcal per day, causing a deficit of 300 kcal per day. Now you lose weight. As you lose weight your daily energy requirement decreases. By losing a few kilograms you reach a stage where your daily requirement is now 1500 kcal. To lose further weight you need to further reduce your intake to even lower levels….. This becomes a problem since there is a limit to which you could reduce your daily energy intake and still stay alive. It presents a problem in that calorie restricted dieting increases your efficiency of burning food. If you now eat slightly more food, such as a cheat day, it is absorbed more efficiently and the weight simply pops back. In the above example the diet would also become even more restricted in nutrients, increasing the biochemical stress on the body and placing the body under more strain. This scenario has significant implications when you eat slightly more after dieting, to the point of adjusting your body’s set point and making it more difficult to lose weight in the future. Every time you go on a diet the problem becomes greater, creating a yo-yo dieting curve which could become harmful to your endocrine system. Losing weight should not be difficult, but going on “diets” is not the answer. We all know it, we have all tried it and all of them have failed. Dieting is when hope triumphs over experience and we lose sight of what is really important. Experience taught us that losing weight happens when the body allows the release of stored reserves from excess demand for the stored energy. Creating demand for energy should be from physical activity and not from dieting. In this lies the first key principle. Energy deficit or calorie restriction implies increasing the demand for energy through physical activity and not through dietary restraints. Physical activity is the most effective way to normalise insulin action and to create a healthy energy deficit. In combination with a high nutrient, balanced diet, weight loss becomes a natural process once the body receives sufficient nutrients and you burn calories through exercise while managing stress and sleep. This is the second key principle. Your diet must be a balanced diet at an energy level customised to your specific requirements. There is a significant amount of clinical evidence to demonstrate that not any specific diet, being it Mediterranean or Paleo or whatever, that really makes a difference. The key is clinically been proven to rely on the nutrient density of the diet in combination with physical activity. Part 2 continued on the next issue The third key principle is that our ultimate objective is not weight loss but improving health. Health is not the simple avoidance of disease but living optimally of which a normalised, healthy weight is important, but certainly not the only objective. Any campaign, any diet, any advice you receive that are purely focused on weight loss must be avoided. Anybody giving you dietary advice must be able to provide you with a nutrient index of the diet, illustrating the nutrient density of the diet against your specific nutrient requirement; if they can’t do this do not follow the diet. The question is: Am I then simply wasting my time trying to eat healthy? No!! The exact opposite. The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other. – Burton Hillis Pg2 . The one article everybody should read on weight loss Dieting will always be an emotional topic and from time to time we need to step back and create some perspective on weight loss. Firstly, weight loss is not the opposite of weight gain. Some people believe that if I gained weight from eating, then I should lose weight from simply eating less. This is not true. The processes involved in storing weight versus the processes required to release weight are very different and simply eating less is not necessarily the answer. Weight gain is part of the human genetic code in protecting us from starvation. Our genes were designed over millions of years during which food was scares and we lived very different, active lives. Our stress was not the same as today and our days were governed by sun light and seasonal changes. During this time we had to seek food and store food during times of abundance in preparation for the lean, cold, winter months. Several signalling mechanisms within our brain as well as cell level read the external environmental changes and make adjustments within or body to compensate and protect us against environmental changes. Weight gain was designed as a protective measure. For weight loss to occur the body must experience no perceived stress. Only if our body receives the message that there is no future risk, only then will it start releasing stored reserves. This stress is not only emotional and physical stress, but biochemical stress. And this is why diets generally don’t work in the long run. Diets are not effective for as long as your body is under any form of perceived stress. The number one stress within our modern society is the absolute lack of nutrients in our food, combined with the consumption of foods that take nutrients out of the body, called anti-nutrient foods. Going on a calorie and food restricted diet only aggravates this situation, leading to further nutrient depletion, which further increases the biochemical stress on your body and further limit weight loss. Any restricted diet, giving preference to specific foods in an unbalanced ration to other foods will induce an unbalanced nutrient load on the body and cause bio-chemical tress. Restricted diets further cause the metabolic efficiency of the body to increase. This is a problem, as illustrated by the following example. ISSUE #6NOV/DEC 2014
  3. 3. INSPIRATION INBOX EDITOR’s MESSAGE: Before we celebrate the New Year, let us celebrate the new person that you have become. Have you ever wondered why people’s goals fade?
