When it comes to losing weight, everyone wants a quick solution. Natural fat loss supplements abound, promising quick, immediate weight loss. However, if you’re truly interested in losing weight naturally, the only real way to do so is through diet and exercise. Natural weight loss is just that – natural. It’s a process that your body goes through. You can’t reproduce natural fat loss by taking a pill or eating strange combinations of foods. You can, however, encourage it by eating well and exercising regularly.

Natural fat loss is achieved as the body loses fat and gains muscle. You can encourage fat loss and muscle gain by eating properly and working out. Foods for natural fat loss are nutrient dense, rich in vitamins and minerals. Foods like fruits and vegetables are packed with nutrition, without being packed with calories. For a natural fat loss diet, choose lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats, and fat free dairy. By limiting your caloric intake, you’re encouraging natural fat loss.

As you build muscle, you decrease the percentage of your body composed by fat. A muscle toning program can add lean, toned muscle without adding bulk. Low weights and high repetitions will help you achieve a long, lean physique, while aiding your natural fat loss. As you build muscle, your body will burn calories more efficiently, which will allow you to burn your remaining fat even more quickly!

Cardio exercise will also help in your natural fat loss journey. After your first fifteen minutes of cardio, your body begins to burn fat for energy. You can ramp this process up even more by exercising first thing in the morning – before breakfast. Your body burns more fat on an empty stomach, so this can be a quick and easy way to jump start natural fat loss. If you get dizzy or shaky with this method, try adding a light breakfast with a low fat protein source, such as whole grain bread with peanut butter. This will give you enough nutrients for exercise, without weighing you down.

Natural fat loss can only be achieved through diet and exercise. If you are interested in losing fat naturally, without supplements, pills, or powders, you can do so. Natural fat loss involves a lot of effort, but it is well worth it. It is the easiest type of weight loss to maintain. Weight lost with fad diets is often quickly regained. However, with natural weight loss, you will achieve results that will stick with you for a lifetime. By learning how to eat right and exercise properly, you’re enabling your body to lose fat now, and maintain your weight loss for a lifetime!

A Simple Way To Lose Weight And Keep It Off

Funny how those few extra pounds seem to creep onto our bodies without notice. Then, one day, it’s almost as though they have all been added at once. Perhaps it a glance in the mirror, or worse, a comment from a friend you haven’ t seen in a while. Whatever it is, you are ready to lose weight. You want to look and feel better. At the same time, there’s so much conflicting information about the best way to lose weight. What’s a person to do?

What follows may not be at the top of everybody’s list for ways to lose weight quickly, but it works. At the very least it should be added to your bag of tricks for dropping those extra pounds. Some of the tips may sound a little silly, but you can’t argue with results. So, what is this method? Portion control. And it can actually be a lot fun!

For starters, when you focus on your portions, there’s no need to carry along a bulky calories counter guide when you go out to eat. I used to hate trying to be “casual” when using those, because I just knew all of the other diners were watching me; thinking to themselves how fat I was.

The most basic way of controlling your portions is…get ready…this is good…putting less on your plate. See? Easy. Not so fast! If it was that easy we would all be at our ideal weight. Yes, by all means, make an effort to put less on your plate. Here are a few more tricks to keep portions limited so you can lose extra weight.

Don’t worry about cleaning your plate. In fact, make it a habit to always leave a few bites on your plate. Speaking of your plate, using smaller dishes will give the illusion that there is more food on them. You can even eat on a saucer instead of a large dinner plate. Granted, you may have to fill it a second time, but all in all, it’s an easy way to limit the amount of food you’re eating.

A big problem for a lot of people is that they eat so fast that they are technically full long before they feel full. Slow down the speed with which you normally eat. Doing so will give your stomach more time to signal the brain that it’s full.

The beauty of doing it this way is that you can eat the same foods you enjoy now. You should still add more healthy foods, but you don’t have to give up any foods if you can keep the portion sizes under control. Once you get used to it, it’s as close to automatic weight loss as you can get. There are many other things you can do, too. Imagine looking good in the mirror, or being complimented by a friend the next time you see them.

Your Connection Between Weight Loss And Fitness

comments Comments Off on Your Connection Between Weight Loss And Fitness
By , June 23, 2015 7:20 am

If you’ve decided you want to lose some weight (whether it be just a few pounds or a large chunk of your body mass), chances are you’ve done the research on diets, plans, gyms, exercises, and anything that you can find on that subject. If so, you’ve probably seen that most credible sources will tell you that weight loss and fitness are strongly related. If not, that’s what I’ll tell you now.

If you want to lose weight, you first need to evaluate a few truths. The most obvious is that if you burn off more calories than you eat, you will lose weight. You can either chose to do no “extra” exercise and eat very, very little in order to lose weight, or you can stick to a plan that will burn off enough calories and allow you not to starve yourself. It’s also important to note that overly-decreasing your calorie intake can backfire on you because your body will slow your metabolism down in order to accommodate this adjustment in calorie intake. This will cause you to actually gain weight instead of lose it.

The next fact is that a combination of water and oxygen leads to fat burning. Make sure that you are getting at least a half gallon of water every day. Your body will use this water when you exercise, and cause you to lose weight in a healthy way. Again, you must combine your water intake with some form of aerobic exercise (increased oxygen) for this to work. Choose something that you like and can do on a regular basis like Walking, biking, swimming, yard work, etc. As long as you get your heart rate up a little bit, it’s a good fat burning exercise.

Finally, consistency is the key when it comes to your weight loss and fitness plan. So many people jump into something quickly with the mindset that they will just keep up the pace for a couple of weeks or a couple of months and then they can go back to their usual life.

In reality, your plan should be a life-long commitment. Even after you lose the weight, in order to maintain your goal weight, you need to eat right and get some activity in. So, pick an activity that you enjoy (or that you don’t mind so much). Walking is one favorite. If you live in the city, you can actually walk part of the way to work, save on gym expenses, and not have to worry about finding time in your day to exercise. If not, no matter where you live, you can probably find the time to take a 20-minute brisk walk around your neighborhood. Bring a buddy along to keep you entertained and you’ll see that the time flies. The connection between weight loss and fitness is too strong to ignore. So, pick your plan and stick with it for life.

How Much Water Weight Can I Lose Drinking Water

Is water retention a big problem for you? If it is, then you are probably trying to find how much water weight you can lose to get to that shape and weight you have as your goal. The solution to losing water weight may seem like an odd one. If you are trying to lose fat, you are supposed to eat less fatty foods. It only makes sense that to lose water weight that you would need to drink less water. This is far from the case. The best way to lose water weight is to drink more water. Let’s look at why that is true.

Why Do I Retain Water Weight?

The body needs water to be healthy. All of your body’s important functions depend on water to be done efficiently. If your body senses that it isn’t getting enough water to operate correctly, it will assume there is a drought and start conserving it. Your body releases a hormone that prevents the kidneys from filtering it. It’s just like when we are going through dry spells with the water supply and cut back on some of the necessary usage and try to get by with as little water being used as possible. This can lead to a lot of other problems.

Can Not Drinking Water Cause Problems?

The obvious problem you have from not drinking enough water is dehydration and this leads to several other problems. One major issue is that water helps remove both solid and liquid waste from your body. The water helps move things like toxins and fat along and out of your system. It also helps break down the more solid matter that your body has broken down and helps it come out easier. If it’s not getting water, fecal matter is just backing up in your system and that brings about many health concerns. Lack of water also slows down your metabolism. It can also keep nutrients from flowing through your body like it needs.

How Much Water Do I Need To Drink?

A knee jerk reaction to realizing that you aren’t getting enough water is to overload it. This won’t help you. What happens when the rain comes after a long dry spell and the ground is rock solid? The ground might absorb some of it, but it has to have some moisture in it to absorb more, just like a sponge. All the extra water that it can’t absorb just runs off somewhere. In your body, if it hasn’t been getting enough water, will be unable to handle large quantities and will just move it into the bladder. That is why you end up having to urinate so much when you drink a lot more water than usual.

What is a healthy amount for you to drink is between one half and two thirds of your body weight in ounces. If you weigh 200 pounds, then you should be drinking between 100-133 ounces of water per day. This will take some getting used to, but when you and your body is getting used to it, your body is going to start believing that the drought is over so there is little need to retain as much.

How much water weight you lose depends on how much water you drink (making sure you are getting enough), how much exercise you get, and how well you eat.

Hoodia Diet Max – Weight Loss Supplement

comments Comments Off on Hoodia Diet Max – Weight Loss Supplement
By , June 18, 2015 1:54 pm

One very popular contestant in the weight loss supplement contest is hoodia. What many people don’t realize is that hoodia isn’t a brand, it’s an ingredient. There are dozens of manufacturers that make supplements that contain (or so they claim) hoodia. One of the most popular brands is hoodia diet max, this supplement has been shown to help greatly reduce appetite so weight loss can be achieved more quickly and easily.

If you’re not very familiar with hoodia in general, here is a brief overview of what it is and what it can do:

1. Hoodia is a succulent found only in the Kalahari Desert in South Africa. It has been used for centuries by the natives as a way to stave of hunger and thirst when they needed to make treks into the desert.

2. There are over 20 varieties of the hoodia plant but the only one that has been shown to have the appetite suppressing compound (dubbed P57 by scientists) is the hoodia gordonii.

3. The P57 compound is only found in the core of the plant and not in the skin or roots therefore the most effective, and expensive, supplements will use only core hoodia powder as opposed to whole powder.

4. Though there are no known side effects with taking a hoodia supplement you do have to be careful that you eat enough nutritious food and drink plenty of water. Even though you are trying to lose weight you still need to keep your body fueled with enough high nutrition food. With such an effective appetite suppressant you may find that you ‘forget’ to eat, and that’s not good. Make suer you eat enough throughout the day. The same thing applies to drinking enough water since hoodia can also decrease your feelings of thirst making it very east to get dehydrated if you aren’t careful.

5. This supplement isn’t a quick fix, you still have to eat properly and get plenty of exercise. The biggest mistake you can make (and many dieters do make) is to think that they don’t have to make any lifestyle changes and the supplement will do all the work. That’s simply not true, after all it’s called ‘supplement’ for a reason. It’s only intended to supplement your other weight loss efforts.

6. It’s very important that you make sure that the product you are buying is certified that it is 100% pure hoodia. Any product that meets this requirement will have a C.I.T.E.S seal on the label. If the product you are considering doesn’t have that label you should keep looking since it probably isn’t 100% pure.

Hoodia diet max is one of the many brands of hoodia currently on the market. It has a lot of loyal followers that swear by it’s effectiveness in helping them control their appetite thus allowing them to lose weight more quickly and easily. It’s certified and has the C.I.T.E.S. seal on the label so you know it’s pure. Give it a try today and you may find that you are well on your way to your weight loss goals much more quickly than you may have thought possible.

Tips On A Diet Plan For Obese Women

comments Comments Off on Tips On A Diet Plan For Obese Women

It doesn’t really matter if you are a few pounds overweight or if you are significantly overweight, it’s still very important for you to make lifestyle changes so that you can achieve and maintain a healthy weight. The problem begins when you have to choose a diet plan for obese women, with so many choices out there which plan is safe, effective, and right for you?

There are dozens of ‘diet plans‘ that you can buy, they range from giving you the meals already prepared to just providing you with guidelines of which foods and how much you should eat, to helping you stay on track with weekly meetings. All of these plans will work, it’s really just a matter of finding the plan that works best for you and your lifestyle.

The pre-packaged meal diet plans are good for anyone who either doesn’t like to cook or simply doesn’t have a lot of time to cook. The downside of these plans is that they can be fairly expensive and it’s tough to do them if you have a family to cook for. It can also be a hassle to stay on them forever and what happens when you have to start cooking for yourself?

Other diet plans that rely on points and teaching you about healthy eating are a little more difficult to implement than just opening up a pre-packaged meal like the option above, but they are less expensive and make it easier to maintain a lifetime of weight loss since they are teaching you how to eat properly.

Being able to attend a meeting weekly, or more, can be a great way to stay motivated. It’s kind of nice to have a ‘we’re all in this together’ kind of mentality with others and you can rely on each other to help you get going again if you ‘fall of the wagon’.

Another thing you can consider is just devising your own diet plan. No matter how much we’d like to believe that there is a ‘miracle’ diet that is quick and easy, the reality is that weight loss boils down to two basic elements: eat less, and exercise more.

Learning to make better food choices both in the types of foods you eat as well as the serving sizes, combined with starting any type of exercise program is the only real way you can achieve permanent, healthy weight loss.

Of course using one or more of the methods above to help you with the food side of the equation is a great option, but ultimately you will need to make some lifestyle changes if you want to get to a healthy weight.

If you’re overweight and desperate to make a significant changes in your lifestyle and achieve and maintain a healthy weight just remember that when it comes to a diet plan for obese women you have a lot of choices.

The most important thing isn’t so much which plan you choose, it’s choosing a plan and sticking to it. The hardest part of any diet is the first few weeks since this is the time when you’re changing bad habits but you’re not really seeing any results. After you start to see results and the new lifestyle changes become habit, it will get a lot easier. Just hang in there and you can’t fail!

Wonder Of Green Tea – Associated Health Benefits

comments Comments Off on Wonder Of Green Tea – Associated Health Benefits
By , June 11, 2015 10:32 am

While herbal tea, among other varieties, have been popular around the world for a long time, it seems that they have only recently gained a widespread acceptance in the US. Perhaps this is partly due to health benefits associated with green tea. Not only is there more and more anecdotal evidence about how wonderful green tea is, but the scientific and medical communities are also adding their stamps of approval to the mix.

The Chinese people have considered tea a staple in their diet for centuries, most likely dating back to prehistoric times. Other Asian cultures have also incorporated tea as a main part of their diets. Not only was it used as a common beverage, it was also used as a form of medicine early on. There are some ancient documents that mention green tea as being used to treat food poisoning, aid digestion and ease the pain of headaches.

Modern medicine is finally starting to catch up with what people from past centuries already knew. The only real difference is that modern practitioners understand the chemistry behind the benefits of green tea.

To fully understand the benefits, it is first necessary to know the difference between green tea and the other types of tea. Just about every type of tea has some health benefit, but green tea is much better. The main difference is in how tea leaves are processed.

Black tea is fermented and processed a bit more heavily, which removes a certain degree of the health benefits. Green tea leaves are in a more natural state and the tea is made by pouring hot water onto the leaves. There is a chemical compound known as EGCG (which stands for epigallocatechin gallate) which is found in higher concentrations in green tea. Time and again, green tea has been shown to improve health in several ways.

Green tea is packed with antioxidant power. As mentioned, green tea contains EGCG which is an antioxidant that is effective at inhibiting the growth of cancer cells, and may also aid in breaking them apart. ECGC also prevents blood clots and helps in reducing bad cholesterol. That’s a good start, but there’s more.

Studies have shown a relationship between green tea and weight loss, as well. The antioxidants help boost the body’s metabolism, allowing it to burn calories more efficiently. It also helps you to feel more full by limiting the secretion of leptin (an enzyme that keeps you feeling hungry).

What other beverage can make you feel full and burn calories at the same time? Not only that, but green may also lower the amount of fat that is absorbed by the body, meaning more of it will pass through your system instead of sticking around in the form of flab.

Oh, and green tea can also help prevent cavities, freshen your breath, boost immunity, give you more youthful looking skin, reduce the risk for certain cancers and alleviate rheumatism. With all it has going for it, if you are not yet drinking green tea on a regular basis, you may wish to start doing so right away.

How To Get Rid Of Fat Arms For Women

comments Comments Off on How To Get Rid Of Fat Arms For Women
By , June 9, 2015 1:20 am

If you have ever waved at someone and then realized that your arm kept waving after you tried to stop, then you want to know how to get rid of fat arms. For women, this may seem to be a bigger issue than for men, but it really isn’t. This is one of the hardest areas to lose weight. You may struggle mightily to lose weight here and work hard only to realize that you aren’t seeing any results.

Why is it so hard to lose weight in your arms?

The area around your arms may have a large number of fat cells. As your body starts to build up it’s fat reserves, it spreads it around wherever it can. Though it may not seem like it, there is a limited amount of space in your mid section. Your body tries to find any and every available space to store it in case it needs it some day. That is why you find yourself gaining weight around your neck and face and arms. Your body may decide to store more around the arms because of the genetics you inherited. Some people are just more prone to storing fat in the arms than others.

So can I exercise to get rid of this fat in my arms?

There isn’t really any specific exercise that you can do to totally eliminate the fat around your arms. What it is going to take is overall weight loss. There are exercises that you can do to tone the muscles in your arms, but that won’t have much of an effect on the fat that’s there. The muscles will grow under that fat and take on a good shape, but unless you are working to reduce the fat all over, you will never know. The only way for the efforts of weight training to be displayed is if the curtain (fat) is pulled back to show them off.

Put yourself on a low fat, high energy diet and an aerobic workout regimen. Getting the right food for your body and for your aerobic activities will go a long way towards reducing that fat around your arms and everywhere else. Get moving using aerobic activity. Aerobic exercise means exercise with oxygen. This is the only way that you are going to get that fat burning off. Do exercises that gets your heart pumping and your lungs working hard. The more air you push through your body, the more fat is going to be burned off.

If you want to increase the amount of fat you are burning off in your aerobic activity, increase the amount of muscle you have overall. Get on a regular schedule of lifting weights. Your metabolism rises with the amount of muscle you gain. If you have higher metabolism, you will find you lose fat at a faster rate. That means that it will also take less work to burn that fat off.

If you can find the time to start exercising more with an emphasis on aerobic activity, you will find how to get rid of fat in arms for women and men.
