Sugar Addiction: Weight Gain, Cravings and GeneticsWritten by Lazelle Bradley
Jay Leno expressed on Tonight Show that as he interviewed people he realized that most of them had weight loss as their New Yearís resolution. Weight is indeed a major concern in United States. Being overweight robs us of energy and encourages diseases.
Obesity is a sign that body is out of balance. Science knows how body gets proper nutrition. The answer is "Whole, live ,foods with living enzymes". Weight loss pills and those who promise you lasting weight control, eat all you want, etc ,if you only take their pill, do not feed your body. Weight loss pills and fad diets may seem to work at first, but get off them and guess what? They do not correct imbalance. The weight can start to creep up again and only choice we have is to continue using them, although they donít feed body and long term effects may not be known.
Our bodies crave junk foods, rich cheese sauces, fast food hamburgers (the biggest ones), breads, pastas and sugary desserts that they have become accustomed to. We are addicted. Sugars and flours make us sick, fat, and crazy. Many of regular grocery stores contain genetically engineered foods-no living enzymes.
Where do cravings come from? The basic underlying reason for craving is malnutrition. The body is simply not getting fed. This is confusing, especially to people who live in a country that has more food than any other. The myriad choices of foods in our markets would be mind-boggling for anyone who has lived in Iraq, for instance or in many other less well-supplied countries.
Why in a country so seemingly rich in foods ,are we starving? Why are we 17th on world longevity list? Why are we getting sicker and sicker?
Consider fact that even if you are eating vegetables and fruits and following recommended dietary requirements what you are eating is not feeding your body what it needs. Three areas of information may shed some light.
First, a study of current USDA nutrient tables for various vegetables and fruits coming off our fields today reveals a significant drop in nutrient contents since 1975 ,some of which are enormous. Senate Document #264,first issued in 1930ís and again in 1990ís States: The impoverished soil of American no longer provides plant foods with mineral elements essential to human nourishment and health. Laboratory tests prove that fruits, vegetables ,the grains, eggs and even milk and meat of today are not what they were a few generations ago. No man of today can eat enough fruits and vegetables to supply his system with minerals he requires for perfect health because his stomach is not big enough to hold them.. Physical ,mental and moral fitness depend largely upon an ample supply and a proper proportion of minerals in our foods.
The Key To Loosing Weight And Keeping It OffWritten by Arina Nikitina
Do you want to lose weight? Of course you do, otherwise you wouldn't be reading this. Let me ask you another question. For how long do you want to lose weight?
Just for summer to look good in bikini? Or before winter Holidays to make some room for turkey and mashed potatoes?
If you want to do that go ahead and pick one of fad diets. Starve yourself for a week or two and then, after a moment of glory is over and you have been admired in a new dress, go ahead and turn back into a pumpkin. Because that's exactly shape your body will gradually take if you decide to make your life a series of multiple diets.
Now if your goal is to discover your true beauty hidden underneath those multiple layers of fat, to look good, and to feel great, you will have to make permanent changes in your life.
It sounds hard, but it's actually much easier than sitting on those horrible diets constantly fighting your urges and refusing yourself little sweets you like so much.
I know it, because I've been there myself. The worst thing was that I used to work part time as a cashier at bakery. You couldn't imagine how miserable my life was at that moment. Every time I would decide to sit on another fad diet, bakers would "accidentally" put extra cherry filling into those cherry strudels. And no matter what time I would show up for my shift I would always have to witness them getting fresh baked cookies out of oven.
Sometimes it seemed like everyone was doing it on purpose, just to brake me and destroy that little willpower I had left. Now I realize that it was my fault for wanting fast results, but not wanting to follow through.
The key to losing weight and keeping it off is right lifestyle.
It is about finding right balance between food that is both delicious and full of vitamins, and exercise that's fun and energizing. Sounds good, doesn't it? And best thing is that by making small changes on a daily basis, you'll not only look great, you will also make your tummy very happy and your family proud.
