10 tips to weight lossWritten by rebook srs
Weight Loss Tip Stretch your meals out. Don't eat too fast. Your stomach, mouth and brain are all connected and it takes twenty minutes of chewing before your stomach signals your brain that you are full. To feel full and successfully lose weight on any weight loss program, you need to eat slowly for twenty minutes or longer. Weight Loss Tip Drinking eight glasses of water a day is important to your health, your normal diet and will help lose weight. Water is necessary for metabolism of your stored fat. Weight loss cannot occur without an active metabolism which requires large quantities of water. Weight Loss Tip The more positive your self-esteem, better you feel about yourself, faster and easier it will be for you to lose weight. When you are self-confident, you are better able to take charge of your life. Weight Loss Tip If you go on a fat free or low fat diet, you also cut out much of taste of foods you eat. Add flavor back with herbs and spices. Strong flavors such as vinegar, garlic, chili powder, cayenne, curry powder, rosemary and tarragon can be used to doctor up any food you are eating. Weight Loss Tip Increase your metabolism by as much as forty percent by using hot and spicey foods. Research has been done that shows spicey foods can increase your metabolism. For double duty, give up fat filled mayonnaise for mustard and add hot peppers to your food for greater flavor and increased metabolism. Weight Loss Tip Negative emotions will also interfere with your weight loss program. It's difficult to stay motivated to lose weight when you feel bad. Overeating often accompanies negative emotions such as depression, anxiety, fear, guilt and anger. Try to keep a positive attitude throughout your life.

Caffeine leads to an increase of insulin in your body which retards burning of your stored fat.This is a simple chemical reaction in your body that you can change. Reduce your caffeine intake by 50% and see what happens.
Weight Loss: Discover a Holistic Weight-loss Program that worksWritten by Carmellita M. Brown
How many weight-loss programs have you tried over years? How many of these weight-loss programs have taken a holistic approach? Holistic Weight loss is only way we can insure that we will lose weight and keep it off. A holistic weight-loss program focuses on “whole” person. If a weight-loss program does not focus on restoring your health, fitness, power, and resolution, it is a temporary fix to what can become or is a lifelong problem. Holistic weight-loss is essential. Weight-loss programs that do not consider “whole” person are destructive for several reasons: Many people who are overweight, obese, or morbidly obese have underlining issues related to health of “whole” person. These underlining issues may include stress, low self-esteem, a poor self-concept, food addictions, emotional eating…all that must be addressed during weight-loss process. Many people who are overweight, obese, or morbidly obese develop a distorted body image even after they have lost weight. Many people view a “diet” as a temporary and quick way to lose weight and do not understand importance of nutrition. People who join many “diet” programs with pre-packaged foods or special supplements to suppress appetite are suffering from malnutrition. Because such programs cause malnutrition, many people can not “keep up” “diet” for rest of their lives and eventually gain all weight back and more. When a person becomes overweight, they feel a loss of power, resolution, and control, it is important to restore these elements to rebuild a sense of “self” and empowerment. Usually, when a person is on a “diet” or weight-loss program, s/he is planning in their minds all things they will “eat” after they lose weight. This is why a holistic weight-loss program is so important. If one does not understand how nutrition works, s/he will never truly commit to a weight-loss program. We have dealt with some “big fat lies” related to weight loss and now it is time to address truth. The truth is: Truth: You can’t eat whatever you want not even in moderation and lose weight.
