The Only 2 Things You Need To Know About Weight Loss

The Only 2 Things You Need To Know About Weight Loss

Weight loss is a billion dollar industry. It's an industry full of empty promises, where everyone promises that their product is the one product that can help you finally lose weight. I have to ask, if their products are so great, why are people still overweight? Why do we have a childhood obesity, diabetes and hypertension epidemic?


The truth is that there aren't any shortcuts to weight loss. Perhaps liposuction is a shortcut but who really wants to go through surgery? I'm willing to bet that people who have liposuction often gain the weight back.


When it comes to weight loss and life, you should try to get things right the first time. What I mean by this is, you should ignore the promises and gimmicks and focus on the core principles of weight loss. Dissect what actually allows a person to lose weight and to only focus on those things.



So, before we talk about what works, lets focus on what doesn't work. We are doing this so that you can throw all these concepts into you mental waste basket.

Here's what doesn't work:

(1)Crash and starvation diets don't work


(2)Spot reduction doesn't work (Try to lose fat in one area of the body)


(3)Extreme workouts don't work


So what really works? The basics work, diet and exercise.


Diet is more important than exercise! It is a FACT that what you eat has a greater impact on your body fat than how much you exercise. A person can always out eat their exercise efforts. A workout that burned 1000 calories can easily be nullified by eating the wrong foods.



We need to get over the whole idea that we will eat a bad meal and then exercise to equal things out. It doesn't work!



The one method of dieting that works is volumetrics. Volumetrics is a diet created by a dietitian who has found that the key to losing weight is getting full from eating fewer calories. The problem we have with the modern diet is that it is high calorie and people find it impossible to get full, so they keep on eating and eating.


The original volumetrics is about eating high fiber foods like vegetables and grains. I have changed it so that it uses less grains and more vegetables.


When you eat like this you stay full all day from eating healthy foods. My basic diet consists of eating lean cuts of meat like chicken breast and mixing it with an extra large portion of vegetables, eating like this has been the first time that I have been able to get full without stuffing my face with unhealthy food.


Exercise? You need it. The body is made to move. If your diet is in check all you need to do is stay active. Get out of your chair and do anything that will keep you on your feet for at least an hour a day.


As you can see, the natural way to lose weight is the easy way.

The Most Effective Weight Loss Program Involves Better Habits

Every member of the family probably recognizes the best way they can stay fit and remain slender, even if they require significant amount of weight loss. Typically, fit families are those that have established habits based on a healthy lifestyle. This is often challenging within a busy home, where both parents are off working throughout the day.


Managing a weight loss system in an active family requires dedication of consuming a balanced diet, and performing regular exercise. While it might appear to be much more convenient to simply stop by the fast food joint for dinner, than to prepare a healthy meal, in the long run it can cause significant issues and diminish the health of the family.

Hair Loss In Women

Hair Loss In Women



Every one of us loses hair every day.   We lose it during our shower, we lose it while we blow dry our hair or when we brush our hair and this loss is all normal.  Typically we lose an average of 50 to 100 hundred hairs per day and normally for each hair we lose, we grow a new one to replace it.  However, at times hair loss may be a sign of a more serious medical condition that needs to be evaluated by a dermatologist for possible treatment.  Here are some possible causes of hair loss in women and how to deal with them.

Alopecia

This is an autoimmune disorder where the immune system attacks the hair follicles.  This disease affects 4.7 million people in the U.S. and occurs equally between women and men.  The cause is not known for sure, but may be triggered by illness or stress.  The condition can occur in three in three different forms including alopecia areata, alopecia universalis and alopecia totalis.
