4 Interesting, but STRANGE Health Tips

We may not realize it, but our small daily habits could be keeping us from living a healthier lifestyle. Here are a few strange, yet helpful tips that could go a long way: 

To eat less, eat more
It's all about what you're putting into your body, not how much. For example, did you know eating a cheese stick with an apple will aid in weight loss - more so than eating a small, 100-calorie pack of pretzels? This is because eating carbohydrates spikes your blood pressure and makes you crave carbs more. Try to stick to snacks with more protein and fat to stay fuller longer. In the end—you'll end up eating less.

Exercise when you're tired
It's always hard to find a good time to work out. Whether it's before your workday or after, many people avoid the gym because they don't have the time or energy. However, exercising actually helps energize the body.  According to a study published in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, everything we do uses oxygen, so when you exercise it helps you work more efficiently and you don't tire as easily.

Gain weight to drop a few pants sizes
Many people make the mistake of measuring the success of their diet from the number they see on the scale. In reality, the number you see on the scale might be going up, but you might be going down in size.  How is this possible? One pound of fat weighs the same as one pound of muscle. However, the difference is that fat is bulkier than muscle tissue and takes up more space under the skin.  Therefore, when you see the number on the scale going up, you might actually be gaining muscle and getting rid of fat, which ultimately slims you down.

Never brush your teeth directly after a meal
Research shows that brushing your teeth too soon after meals and drinks, especially those that are acidic, can do more harm than good. Acid attacks the teeth, eroding enamel and the layer below it, called dentin. Brushing can accelerate this process. It is recommended that you wait 30-60 minutes after a meal to brush your teeth.
