Everybody wants to lose weight. Even if its only that last five pounds. Joey Atlas gives you five proven weight loss tactics that go beyondrepparttar "eat low fat and walk for one hour each day" mantra ofrepparttar 140999 mainstream.

You are ready to shed those energy draining, body crippling, unattractive extra pounds and you are ready to make it permanent this time. You are onrepparttar 141000 right track because you've takenrepparttar 141001 most important step toward your goal. That step isrepparttar 141002 decision to take action and stay committed. The following five proven strategies will serve as essential elements in your quest to achieve your weight loss goal.

1) You must put yourself intorepparttar 141003 right mindset. Don't think of your new efforts at weight loss as trying to do certain things every day. See your self living a new lifestyle, a new lifestyle that naturally includes behavior conducive to positive changes in your health and fitness levels. You transition into this new lifestyle by makng adjustments to your daily habits until these habits are in alignment withrepparttar 141004 goals you are aiming for.

2) Find an exerise partner. It can be a friend, a co-worker, or a family member. Why is this important? An exercise partner is a tremendous source of support. A partner is crucial on those days when you really don't feel up to exercising. Unless you are sick, a good partner won't let you slack and likewise your partner will need you to pull them up when they are not up forrepparttar 141005 workout. You being needed is an indirect but important type of support. With an exercise partner comesrepparttar 141006 element of accountability, which subconciously reinforces your committment to your quest.

3) Have a baby or get a puppy. These two strategies work inrepparttar 141007 same manner. I write about this one from first/second hand experience. My wife, Jeri-Jo, gave birth to our daughter, Darah, nine months ago. Today, she weighs less than she weighed before she got pregnant. What isrepparttar 141008 mechanism here? Jeri-Jo claims, "With Darah to care for, my mind is focused on her and her needs. Don't get me wrong, I'm not at risk for malnutrition, but I don't eat out of boredom any more simply because there is always something to do. The day flies by and I don't have time to snack on foods that cause weight gain."

Omega 3 EPA: Natureís Very Own Anti-Depressant

Written by Dave Mcevoy


Since Dr Malcolm Peet, a consultant psychiatrist at Sheffield swallow court hospital released his findings aboutrepparttar effects of Ethyl Epa and its effects on people suffering from depression and low moods, many other studies have been performed using Ethyl Epa to help treat depression and related disorders. The vast majority ofrepparttar 140998 studies that have been performed consistently confirmed that Ethyl Epa, a natural substance found in omega 3 fish oil, helps relieve depression and low moods.

The idea that high grade omega 3 EPA could be used to help combat depression and other related disorders came fromrepparttar 140999 late Dr Horribin, who as early asrepparttar 141000 1970s was a pioneer in lipid research involvingrepparttar 141001 brain and central nervous system. Sincerepparttar 141002 findings at Sheffield, studies have been conducted roundrepparttar 141003 world, Harvard university 1999, London Hammersmith hospital 2001 and Israel Ben Gurion University 2002 to name but a few.

EPA As Part Of A Healthy Diet

EPA is part ofrepparttar 141004 Omega 3 chain of ecosanoids and is most commonly found in fatty fish such as fresh salmon, mackerel, pilchards and sardines. Overrepparttar 141005 past 100 yearsrepparttar 141006 diet patterns of most people inrepparttar 141007 west has shifted dramatically to include far more hydrogenated oils and Trans fatty acids (bad fats) this is largely due torepparttar 141008 increased consumption of fast food and ready made meals. Even people who think they eat a healthy diet consume way too much omega 6 and not enough omega 3.

Researchers have recently found that a diet high in Tranís fatty acids could affectrepparttar 141009 mood stabilizing hormones withinrepparttar 141010 brain, this is thought to be due torepparttar 141011 saturated fats slowing downrepparttar 141012 messaging system withinrepparttar 141013 brain, should this happen thenrepparttar 141014 onset of depression could occur.

How Does EPA Work?

Whilerepparttar 141015 benefits of high grade EPA have been well documented,repparttar 141016 scientific community still donít know exactly how EPA works onrepparttar 141017 brain, one theory released by Dr Basant Puri is that it easesrepparttar 141018 passage ofrepparttar 141019 signals overrepparttar 141020 tiny gaps inrepparttar 141021 brain called synapses. Another theory was thatrepparttar 141022 high Grade Epa actually worked similar to lithium and had anti depressant properties of its own.

Until recently it was widely accepted inrepparttar 141023 medical community that once a human reached maturity thatrepparttar 141024 adult brain could not grow anymore, in a recent paper just released by Dr Puri his findings show other wise. Dr Puri scanned a 21 year patient before treating him with high grade Pure Epa, afterrepparttar 141025 course of treatment he rescannedrepparttar 141026 young man only to find thatrepparttar 141027 grey matter ofrepparttar 141028 brain had increased in size.
