Six Super Easy Weight Loss TipsWritten by D. Jones
If you have been trying to lose weight permanently, then these six weight loss tips may be just what you need to kick start your weight loss program. You may have heard some of them before, but if you make them a part of your core goal, you will not have as much difficulty achieving your weight loss goals.
Include exercise in your lifestyle
If you want to achieve long term weight loss, you must not only be careful of what and how you're eating, you must get off your butt and exercise. It has been reported that 80 percent of those who lose for long haul make changes to their diets and make exercise a part of their lifestyle.
How much are you really eating?
Americans are really guilty of this - supersizing our meal portions. It's not what you eat but how much you eat. By eating smaller portion sizes you can eat whatever you like, because you are not overeating.
Sneak in this super easy exercise
Walking is one of easiest ways to sneak exercise into your daily life. It is easy to do and requires no equipment except your own body. To make walking even more effective, park your car further away from your destination, walk up hills, use stairs, and alternate walking with brief periods of running. Get in as many steps as possible each day to rev up your internal calorie burning machine.
Stress and Fat: Discover the Stress and Fat ConnectionWritten by Carmellita M. Brown
Can a pill reduce stress and “stubborn” belly fat? The answer to this question may shock you and save your life. Discover real connection between stress and fat. The “diet” and weight-loss industry has preyed on our lack of knowledge about health, fitness, and nutrition for too long. Since much of truth has been exposed about fat-free fad, low-carb fad, and food pyramid misrepresentation in Standard American Diet (SAD), “diet” and weight-loss industry has revamped its approach by jumping on “stress factor” bandwagon. Let’s get down to truth. Stress causes fat. Stress causes fat by chemical imbalances in body. These chemical imbalances are related to body’s pH level. pH levels above 7.0 is alkaline and pH levels below 7.0 is alkaline. The body’s a properly pH balanced body is slightly alkaline at about 7.365. This level of alkaline produces healthy cells. Healthy cells produce health tissue such as lean muscle. Unhealthy cells—acidic cells produce fatty acids which produce fatty tissue. However, there is more to consider. Where does stress originate? It originates in body. When we have right nutrients in our biological terrain (inside of our body), life is less likely to stress you out. Hence, much of stress we have comes from foods we eat. For average person, 80% percent of what we eat has no nutritional value. About 40% of foods we consume are meats and animal products such as milk, cheese, butter, which have nutrients, but these nutrients do not assimilate well in Human body. We eat it because we enjoy way it tastes and because it gives us a temporary sense of fullness. The other 40% is processed foods such as pastas, breads, canned foods, and frozen foods. Only about 20% of what we eat is actually raw fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts and seeds. This ratio not only promotes anaerobic pathogens, it also causes obesity, nerve damage, allergies, and stress. The symptoms of stress, low self-esteem, and depression are results of chemical imbalances that often manifests as excess weight. In a vicious cycle, excess weight gain and food addiction contribute to many physical, emotional and spiritual maladies. However, source can be linked to biochemical imbalances caused by acidosis. Again, pH vitality is answer. Often times what has been diagnosed as “food addiction”, “stress”, “emotional eating” is result of acidosis (a highly acidic biological terrain). Emotional stress can decrease body’s alkalinity just as acidosis can cause stress. Why are so many people so stressed? Well, most people have a pH level of about 5.1 to 6.0. With an acidic biological terrain such as this, stress flourishes. The stress stems from amount of pressure placed on body to try to alkalize internal environment so that it can release metabolic waste. You feel pressure because your body feels pressure. For example, have you ever tried to work in a junky office with papers piled up on floor, desk, and in chairs? In office, there is dust everywhere and nothing is in order. There’s hardly any room on desk for computer because books are stacked up everywhere and just as you clear a space on desk…someone brings in five more stacks of paper and covers desk again. How much work do you think you would get done in this environment? How stressed do you think you would be?
