Wellness Coach Reveals Celebrity Diet

Written by Carmellita M. Brown

We think we know everything there is to know about them. After all, faithful paparazzi haunt them down just so we can get a picture or a glimpse of their lives. However,repparttar “money shot” doesn’t tell us everything. Especially how they stay in shape, maintain their youthfulness, and flawless skin.

We have seenrepparttar 143175 Demi Moore transform before our very eyes, we have watched Alicia Silverstone remain just as radiant as she was in “Clueless”. We have seen Angela Basset evolve from a muscle built Tina Turner in “What’s Love Got to Do With It” to a lean and fit beauty right before our eyes.

So, what is their secret? The secret is your natural fat burner. Your body has a natural fat burner called your liver. The liver is responsible for breaking down fats and excreting bile fromrepparttar 143176 system. It isrepparttar 143177 largest internal organ inrepparttar 143178 body and often times we ignore it.

There is only one proper way to care forrepparttar 143179 liver and that is maintaining a diet that allows for daily detoxification of solidified protein trapped in intercellular fluid betweenrepparttar 143180 cells—also known as metabolic waste, toxins, and mucoid plaque. These trapped substances can cause damage to your cells. As we know, cells make up tissues and tissues make up organs. Damaged cells causerepparttar 143181 overproduction of fatty tissue, cause damage to your skin (the largest external organ) due to free radicals, and cause premature aging due to hardened arteries an capillaries. These trapped substances also cause stress which leads to abdominal fat, food addiction, and emotional eating becauserepparttar 143182 body is working so hard to rid itself of these damaging substances.

Unlike celebrities, many of us can’t afford $750 an hour nutritionists from private institutions of study to come to our home, train us, and walk us through a diet that promotes liver health.

Calcium for Weight Loss

------------------- Psst, got milk? Calcium may berepparttar 143001 newest weight-loss secret. A new study provides more evidence that calcium can fight body fat and help keep your weight under control.

Researchers found that adolescent girls who consumed more calcium weighed less and had less body fat than girls who consumedrepparttar 143002 same amount of calories from other sources. Previous studies have shown that a higher calcium intake can block body fat production in adults and preschool children, but this is one ofrepparttar 143003 first studies to show that it might haverepparttar 143004 same effect in body-conscious preteen and teenage girls.

The study


The study, presented this week atrepparttar 143005 Experimental Biology 2003 meeting in San Diego, involved an ethnically mixed group of 321 girls aged nine to 14.

Each ofrepparttar 143006 girls recorded everything she ate and drank, along with any calcium or vitamin supplements, for three days. Researchers also measuredrepparttar 143007 girls' physical activity, weight, and amount of body fat just aboverepparttar 143008 hipbone -- a measure of abdominal fat.

Not surprisingly, they found thatrepparttar 143009 girls who consumed more total calories and exercised less weighed more and had more body fat. But when researchers compared girls with similar calorie intake, physical activity level, and size, they found thatrepparttar 143010 girls who consumed more calcium on average weighed less.

Researchers say most ofrepparttar 143011 calcium inrepparttar 143012 girls' diet came from dairy sources, and it didn't take much to make a difference in their body fat and weight. The study found an increase of one serving of dairy, such as a cup of milk or thumb-sized piece of cheese containing about 300 mg of calcium, was associated with about half an inch less abdominal fat and nearly 2 pounds in lower weight.

But researcher Rachel Novotny, PhD, RD, saysrepparttar 143013 findings shouldn't be interpreted as an excuse to add more cheese and other calcium-rich dairy products to your diet in repparttar 143014 hopes of stimulating weight loss.

"It doesn't mean that just eating more dairy can help you lose weight," says Novotny, professor and chair ofrepparttar 143015 department of human nutrition, food and animal sciences atrepparttar 143016 University of Hawaii at Manoa.

Calories are stillrepparttar 143017 bottom line

------------------------------- His findings, published in this week's Journal ofrepparttar 143018 "Calories are stillrepparttar 143019 bottom line," Novotny tells WebMD. "Doesrepparttar 143020 composition of calories matter? Yes, having more of them come from calcium-rich foods is associated with lower weight and lower body fat."

In light ofrepparttar 143021 current obesity epidemic, Novotny says these findings might provide a new way to help set up children for a healthy body weight later in life. Although reducing overall calorie intake and increasing physical activity arerepparttar 143022 most effective means to promote weight loss and reduce body fat in people of any age, she says a relatively small change in calcium intake might also lower body fat.
