Ways to Lose Weight

Writing down your daily food intake is a way to acknowledge the importance
of your weight loss mission and help you to take it seriously. Tracking
your food, your emotional triggers, and daily physical activity helps
you identify patterns and habits that lead to overeating and inactivity.
2. Daily exercise
Get moving! Exercise burns calories and suppresses the appetite.
The National Academy of Sciences recently set new recommendations of 60
minutes of exercise per day, up from 30. But don't panic! Only 30 minutes
per day needs to be vigorous activity; use other activities of daily living
to add up to the remaining 30 minutes.
3. Kick up the calcium
Recent research by Zemel and his colleagues at the University
of Tennessee has shown that consuming three servings a day of calcium-rich
dairy foods can speed up weight loss by 50%-70% while strengthening bones
and preventing osteoporosis. It's a no-brainer -- how can you argue with
eating yogurt, cheese, and milk - all really healthy foods if you choose
low-fat versions - while enhancing weight loss?
4. Protein at every meal
Research from the University of Illinois reported in the Journal
of Nutrition suggests that eating more high-quality protein can help a
person maintain muscle mass and reduce body fat during weight loss. So
be sure that the protein you eat is just one part of a well-balanced diet
including eggs, fish, poultry, meat, low-fat dairy, beans, and nuts.
5. Believe in breakfast
You can actually lose weight by eating breakfast! The National
Weight Control Registry cites breakfast as one of the key factors to long-term
weight control. A healthy breakfast keeps blood sugar and hormone levels
stable while your metabolism hums along at a higher level, burning more
6. Never go more than 4-5 hours without food
Skipping meals encourages bingeing and crushes your willpower.
By making sure that you eat three meals per day you can control your hunger
and manage your appetite.
7. Do it slowly
The average adult gains 1-3 pounds per year, according to the
surgeon general. One pound of fat equals 3,500 calories. So what makes
you think you can take it all off -- and keep it off -- in just a few
short months? The best and most successful approach is slow and steady,
at a rate of 1-2 pounds per week. Combine the calorie reduction with
daily physical activity and you'll have a loss of 1-2 pounds per week.
Slow, steady weight loss is the kind that stays off forever.
8. Buddy up
Getting support from others is a great way to help you maintain
your new eating and physical activity habits. Successful losers have great
support systems, according to research from Brown University published
in The Journal of the American Medical Association.
9. Eat a rainbow of colors and plenty of whole grains
Colorful produce and whole grains contain complex carbohydrates,
a wealth of disease-fighting phytonutrients, very few calories, and virtually
no fat. Fruits and vegetables are chock full of fiber, vitamins C, A,
and K, folate, and potassium. The deeper the color, the richer the nutrients
and the potential for greater health benefits.
10. Reward yourself
Have a list of incentives to choose from when you hit small goals
such as 5 or 10 pounds of weight loss or getting regular exercise. That
will boost your self-esteem, and studies say self-esteem can keep you
from succumbing to emotional eating.
weight loss and slowing
the effects of aging on your body
Nicholas Perricone, MD, the world's leading
anti-aging health and beauty expert.
"My research has shown that the chief therapeutic intervention to
weight gain, regardless of age, is the anti-inflammatory diet," says
Dr Perricone in his latest bestseller "The Perricone Weight Loss
Follow these tips to stabilize blood sugar and insulin, maintain precious
muscle mass and
stay thin for life.
* Eat cold water fish, such as wild salmon,
sardines, etc. However salmon is a fat-
burner, muscle-builder, wrinkle-eraser, skin-saver, depression-lifting brain-booster.
* Take fish oil capsules. If you don't
eat fish or want to increase the weight loss
benefits of the omega 3 fatty acids found in cold-water
fish, take high quality fish oil capsules.
* Avoid stress -- stress causes the release
of the hormone cortisol, Excess cortisol increases appetite
and promotes storage of fat in the abdominal area.
* Eliminate Food Cravings. Just 1/2 teaspoon
of the amino acid glutamine taken
at meals three times per day will stop the constant cravings
for sweets and high glycemic carbs.
* Laugh to Lose Weight: Laughter reduces
stress hormones, strengthens the
immune system, lowers blood pressure, acts as a muscle
* Go for the Green -- Green tea prevents
the absorption of fat, helping to
keep off excess body fat. Supplementation with the most plentiful
polyphenol, EGCG, stops diet-induced obesity.
* Listen to your biological clock. Researchers
have found that the "clock," once t
hought to be only in the central part of the brain, is also
in the part of the brain that controls appetite. It
appears that synchronization of meal times has an impact on our weight
-- so eat regular meals at regular times to prevent overeating.
* Sleep to Lose Weight: Did you know that
sleep deprivation causes overeating? When we don't get
enough sleep, the hormone believed to increase feelings of hunger increases.
* An apple a day (or two or three) Despite
their relatively high sugar levels, apples
exert a stabilizing effect on blood sugar, in part to their
high fiber content and phloretin: a flavonoid-type phytonutrient
found exclusively in apples. Buy organic and eat the
skin as well as the fruit.

Weight Loss Myths
Original source: http://www.askmen.com/fashion/body_and_mind/7_better_living.html
regarding weight loss
1-Starches make you
Not true. Starchy foods such as potatoes, breads and pasta are the fastest-burning
foods you can eat. All are carbohydrates, which provide the body's main
source of ready-to-use fuel. Nutritionists and dieticians recommend that
the greatest share of our diet - 60% - be composed of this fuel. "Only
a tiny percentage of carbohydrates is ever converted to fat in the body,"
says Adam Drewnowski, Ph.D., director of the human nutrition program at
the University of Michigan's School of Public Health
2-You need to cut calories drastically to lose weight.
Not really. When you cut back too hard on calories, the body goes into
a conservation mode in which your metabolism switches to a slower pace.This
actually decreases your ability to lose weight. To make sure your body
keeps burning fat, experts advise that you drop your total caloric-intake
only a little while adjusting the fuel mix. According to one study, men
who got 25% of their calories from fat, but ate as much as they wanted
of other types of food, lost an average of a half-pound per week
3- Only drastic diets work.
Sure, if you eat nothing but oranges all day long for a week, you'll inevitably
lose weight. But if you're considering going on a diet of this kind, I
suggest you ask yourself: "Can I eat nothing but oranges for the
rest of my life?" Right, sure, uh huh. The problem here is that these
kinds of diets aren't realistic.To take weight off, and keep it off, I
suggest gradually changing your diet habits.
4- You have to give up your favorite foods.
You don't. In fact, you can eat anything you want. Depriving yourself
of pleasure isn't fun, and it doesn't work. "There's something called
the abstinence violation effect, which says that if you insist on completely
avoiding something, human nature makes it likely that you'll break your
resolution," says Dr. Susan Kayman, nutritionist.
5- You shouldn't snack.
Actually, the right kinds of snacks can help you lose weight. Again, follow
the rule of "low fat burns fat". Fruits and veggies are the
best kind of snacks. So are low-fat sweets such as brownies and cookies.
6- When you overeat, it's because you're hungry.
Hunger has nothing to do with it. We overeat for emotional reasons, and
if you know your emotional triggers, you'll start eating better. One of
the major reasons is stress, because it causes you to eat more quickly.
And the foods you want to eat when stressed are more likely to be fatty,
pleasurable things. The best way to foil a craving is to take your mind
off it, preferably by keeping yourself busy with a task where it's impossible
to eat, such as going for a long walk.
7- Burning fat demands intense exercise.
Not so. Most any exercise burns fat. According to most physiologists,
increasing your activity level up a notch or two can make you lose a pound
per week. Walking, chopping wood, mowing the lawn, and cleaning the basement
are some examples of added activities you can add on to your daily routine.
It was believed that you needed an average workout of 3 times a week of
intense training to melt away those pounds.
Such workouts are important at increasing cardiovascular fitness, however,
fat burning takes place at lower intensity levels.
Receive the right nutritious elements and avoi others
Good food categories
>> Fruits and olive oil;
>> Raw Vegetables / Cooked Vegetables;
>> Grains and Pasta;
>> Nuts & Seeds;
>> Unrefined sugars (often brown).
1. Fruits & Olive Oil
- Acid Fruit
oranges - pineapples - sour apples - sour plums - lemons
- grapefruits - sour peaches - limes - tangerines -
sour grapes - tomatoes. These are the most detoxifying fruits and excellent
foods. They should be avoided when you have the flu
because the body could overreact detoxifying and make
you even more sick.
- Low-acid Fruit
apricots - blueberries - huckleberries - strawberries
- nectarines - raspberries - blackberries - gooseberries
- mangos - elderberries - olives - fresh figs - sweet apples - cherries-
sweet peaches sweet plums - persimmons
These fruits are less detoxifying than acid fruits and
can be handled well in any amount.
- Sweet Fruit
dates - sweet grapes - pears - prunes - raisins - dried
Rehydrate dried fruit by soaking it overnight in a jar of
watermelons - cantaloupes - honey dew - galia
Are like all other fruits excellent food. What's very
special about watermelons is that they contain as much
iron as spinach. Eat as much of them as you like.
- Starchy Fruit
bananas - peanuts - pumpkins - winter squashes
Don't eat more than one banana a day if you gain weight
- Non-starchy Fruit
cucumber - sweet pepper - zucchini - egg plant - yellow
Protein containing Fruit
-olives - avocadoes
Extremely healthy fruits. Olives and avocadoes contain
a lot of different nutritious elements and even scientists
don't know what they exactly contain!
- Olive oil
Olive oil is very healthy. Use olive oil from today
on instead of animal based fat.
After fruit the most important of all foods. Along
with fruits, vegetables are the only right nutrition for
the human body. Vegetables contain amino acids and antioxidants in forms
that do not occur in other foods. You can eat
unlimited amounts. Vegetables are most nutritious when eaten raw. They
are especially important to eat for their protein contents.
- Non-Starchy (usually green) Vegetables
alfalfa sprouts - asparagus - bamboo sprouts - beet
greens - broccoli - cabbage - celery chard - Brussels
sprouts - chive - collards - dandelion greens - endive - garlic - green
beans - kale - leeks lettuce - mustard greens - okra
- onions - parsley - radishes - rhubarb - scallions - spinach - wax beans
- turnips - watercress - turnip greens
- Mildly Starchy Vegetables
carrots - green peas - rutabagas - cauliflower
- Starchy Vegetables
corn - dried beans - artichokes - potatoes
- Protein containing Vegetables
dried beans - dried peas - soybeans - lentils
Grains consist of equal amounts of starch and protein.
pasta - organic whole wheat - brown rice - spelt -
millet - oats - rye - barley
4. Nuts & Seeds
Nuts and seeds are a good source of protein. Nuts are
an excellent source of rare amino acids that
are destroyed in cooked protein. Seeds are a good source of essential
minerals and beneficial oils.
As with nuts, do not overeat.
almonds - Brazil nuts - pecans - filberts
sesame - pumpkin - sunflower
5. Natural, Unrefined Sugars
It is very important to use natural, unrefined, often
brown sugars instead of white sugars or sweetners.
Unrefined brown sugars are natural and provide you with energy.
1. Animal Foods
Animal foods are: meat, milk, yoghurt, cheese, bouillon,
butter, fish, shellfish, eggs e.g.
If you want to lose weight quickly it is a must to stay
away from animal products.
There are two reasons why you have to abstain from animal
food if you want to slim down fast:
The energy animal foods contain consists of proteins.
Proteins take a longer time to digest and are burnt
in a different, more cumbersome way than fruits and vegetables.
Animal products contain a lot of fattening cholesterol whereas
fruits and vegetables do not contain any cholesterol.
2. White Flour
White flour forms a sticky substance in the intestines
and cardiovascular vessels, causes constipation and
deregulates the digestive system. For a proper burning process you have
to stay away as much as you can from white flour suchs
as: white bread, pizza, buns, pancakes, crepes
3. Refined White Sugar
Refined white sugar is a stimulant and therefore mentioned
at 4 but we treat white sugar here because allmost every
product you buy at the store contains some kind of refined white sugar.
. Try to avoid products that contain this worldly accepted
stimulant. Examples: sodas, icecream, candy, ketchup,
other sauces and literally thousands of other products in the supermarket.
Characteristic for stimulants is that they can quickly
change a mental or bodily state but that the change
is never made permanently and is only a temporary solution. The most well
known stimulants are:
Refined white sugar;
Weight Loss Tips
Here are some generally-accepted
guidelines for losing weight
Losing weight may not be effortless,
but it doesn't have to be complicated. To achieve long-term results, it's
best to avoid quick-fix schemes and complex regimens. Focus instead on
making modest changes to your life's daily routine. A balanced, healthy
diet and sensible, regular exercise are the keys to maintaining your ideal
- Consult with your doctor, a dietician, or other qualified health
professional to determine your ideal healthy body weight.
- Eat smaller portions and choose from a variety of foods.
- Load up on foods naturally high in fiber: Fruits, vegetables, legumes,
and whole grains.
- Limit portions of foods high in simple carbohydrates.
- Limit portions of foods high in fat: dairy products like cheese, butter,
and whole milk; red meat; cakes and pastries.
- Exercise at least three times a week.
- Drinking 8 glasses of water a day is important to your health, your
normal diet and to help lose weight. Water is necessary for the metabolism
of your stored fat.
- Try to work out as much as possible, but at your own pace.
- Ask yourself how many times have you started a diet & where would
you be now if you had just stuck to one of them?
- If you think you can you will. If you think you can't, you won't.
- Snack every 4 hours (try oranges, apples, carrot sticks, pretzels,
- Buy pre-cut fruit and veggies: You'll be more likely to munch on
them for a snack or make a salad for dinner.
- Carry a little sport bottle at all times. If you feel hungry, take
a drink. This works great, for example, when you're at your desk or
computer as it helps to curb your appetite.
- Eat a Good Breakfast, people who skip breakfast burn 5 percent fewer
calories than those who eat a healthy morning meal.
- Substitute activity for eating. When the cravings hit, go to the
gym or health club if possible; or clean, or walk around the block.
- Include two fruits or vegetables in every meal or snack. You'll feel
fuller and cut back on calories from other foods.
- Hit the Scales
The researchers write that frequently checking your weight allows you
to catch small weight gains and hopefully take steps to correct them.
- Maintain a Consistent Eating Pattern.
The researchers did find that people who were consistent about their
diet were more likely to keep the weight off.
- To lose weight faster, reduce your intake of caffeine. Caffeine leads
to an increase of insulin in your body which retards the burning of
your stored fat. Larry Christensen, PhD, a researcher with the University
of South Alabama, found in recent studies that when people who are sensitive
to caffeine eliminated it from their diets, their moods and energy levels
- Increase your metabolism by as much as 40% by using hot and spicey
foods such as hot peppers of all varieties and mustards. Research shows
these foods all increase your metabolism.
- Exercise is probably the most important key to increasing your metabolism
and burning off excess fat. Research shows that you burn more stored
fat for energy when you do aerobic exercises on an empty stomach than
on a full stomach. Research also shows that you burn more stored fat
when you exercise late in the day rather than in the morning.
- To lose weight quickly, never skip a meal. Your first meal after waking
starts your metabolism. Your metabolism then speeds up for about eight
hours and then starts slowing down until you go to sleep when it goes
to low until you wake and eat and start the cycle again.
- Say goodbye to beer and alcohol.
