Learn How to Avoid These Weight Loss Myths

So you want to lose weight but you just can’t see yourself eating all that healthy junk that the health experts including your doctor tells you should be eating. Sure, you need to lose a pound or two but for crying out loud, do you really have to forget about that juicy mouth water cheese burger, and that succulent steak, and oh how you love that cheesecake.

Just thinking about it have made you come to one conclusion: What is the point of living if you are going to be deprived of the very foods that taste so darn good? Maybe you will consider this weight loss idea another day, right now all you can think of is that slice of cake that is calling your name.

Most people hesitate or even resist the idea of going on a weight loss plan because they think that they will have to give up all the foods that they love. But rest assured that is not the whole truth.

One surefire myth is that you hear that you will no longer be able to snack. You should snack; this is recommended because by you snacking it will cause you to eat less at the next meal. Most experts will tell you that instead of eating three meals a day, try to break it up into five smaller meals.

You can snack but you just have to make a healthier choice. Instead of having that candy bar you might want to consider a those baby carrots. Might not be so tasty but just start eating them and soon you will get a taste for them. Try eating new fruits that you have never tried before instead of reaching for that bag of chips.

Maybe when you go that fast food chain you might not be able to order the cheeseburger, fries, soda and all the other dessert that you normally have. But once you are there, you could order a salad instead of your normal meal; go for the grilled chicken over that deep fried chicken. And if you do get a salad, try not to indulge into the bacon, crotons and salad dressing in large portions. Cut it in two and have only a half of the portion.

And remember you can always have a healthy burger at home. Chose grass-fed burger meat with your choice of lettuce, tomatoes and low-fat cheese on whole wheat buns and maybe a home made healthy dressing rather than the calories laden mayonnaises.

You have heard so many times that if you want to lose weight you should stay away from carbohydrates. All carbohydrates are not bad for your diet. You should be avoiding carbs that have been processed. How will you know if it has been processed? These bad carbs are usually found in foods high in sugar and white flour.

This myth has been going around so much that it has almost become a truth. The myth that you can eat what you want all you have to do is exercise regularly and you should never have to worry about weight loss again. If you are not eating healthy and you keep exercising, you are just at the same spot spinning your wheels. And don’t for get this little thing called your metabolism. If it gets foods that slows it down it will not perform at its peak, thus you will not see weight loss but rather weight gain.

Remember that your age plays a significant role in this process too. And you want to take on a healthy lifestyle, not try to trick your body. Bad foods will always be bad for your health and sooner than later you will see the results of poor eating habits.

Even though you might be afraid to give up some of your foods, remember that you can always prepare a healthier version of these foods at home. And who knows you might just get to love that burger with whole grain buns rather than those plain old white buns.

Healthy Weight Loss by Manipulating Your Body’s Fat Burning Intensity

Manipulating your body to burn more calories can help you lose weight.

I recently came across something interesting regarding weight loss programs. We can give it a name and call it “Play tricks on your body and lose weight in doing so”.

What is this all about? The main idea is that you carefully select the food you eat – based on three different types of calories, namely protein, carbohydrates, and fats. By manipulating the first two – proteins and carbohydrates, and by selecting appropriate foods which contain these two types of calories, and by following a systematic eating schedule of 4 meals a day, you can “naturally” lose weight, without fasting and other types of self-torture. “Naturally” here means that you do not have to do things that might harm your body, but instead you “program” your metabolism in a way that it will start burning fat by self-stimulation.

Another important aspect is that the body pays attention to the intake of calories per meal and NOT per day. Therefore if you spread out your meals during the day with specific time intervals, you can “trick” your body into burning more fat than usual. Of course, this must be done consistently and with discipline, which means that one has to want to succeed. Without the right mindset as a basis, no diet and no weight loss program will succeed. That would simply be self-deception to believe otherwise.

Without a desire and a minimum level of determination and discipline you cannot succeed. Full stop.

Forget MLM – Become Healthy, Wealthy and Wise With Body Balance

The simplicities of good nutrition are easy to understand, what you will find hard to understand is just how are you going to consume your 7 full course servings of fruits and vegetables that are nutritionally required to maintain good health, every day? The only realistic answer is body balancing dietary supplements. There are also additional requirements which also must be met in order to remove the acidity of the body’s fluids and maintain the happy equilibrium leading ultimately to a happier life.

This article will examine one of the aspects of good health that can be easily met with Body Balance and it’s sisters OsteOmegaCare and OsteoProCare by Life Force International.

The first requirement to be met by the dietary supplement plan is that the nutrients must be available for use by the body. You may have previously read somewhere that not all dietary supplements are created equal. Meaning the absorption rate of the vitamins and minerals should be high, verses the excretion of the nutrients. With that said, after many years of scientific research on the subject of balancing the body with good nutrition, the evidence has found that the best vitamin and mineral absorption from any supplement is in liquid form.

Here’s the thing, when we eat a lot of processed foods, we don’t ingest the live enzymes needed to break down food, which causes our digestive system to use a lot more energy to digest and assimilate the nutrients. Guess what, poor digestive, assimilation and elimination wares on our bodily systems which ultimately leads to countless illnesses.

We must gain an adequate mineral supply to maintain a balance between internal and external pressures of the body cells called “osmotic equilibrium.” This state must be maintained for normal cell function and continued youthful health. The body does not absorb Pill/rock minerals and only assimilates about 10% into your system, making it imperative to take ocean/sea based minerals for 99% absorption!

The vitamin and mineral rich Body Balance, by Life Force International, offers over 121 vitamins, minerals, trace minerals, ultra trace minerals, amino acids and live enzymes from a natural, whole food plant based (phytonutrient) source –sea veggies. Brown sea vegetables gently detoxes while the red and green fortify and renew our immune system, cells and blood. The greater absorption comes from combining essential minerals with Aloe Vera to gently cleanse the small intestine. This is very important for our general happy feeling, believe it or not. When we suffer from brain fog, poor concentration, anxiety, depression and low energy…all due to poor digestion, assimilation, elimination from processed food (build up) and inadequate amounts of important body balancing nutrients.

In the next article of this series, I’ll explain in more detail just how the Body Balance sisters OsteoProCare and OsteOmegaCare and the enhanced concentration of Calcium will lead to a fully protected body, ph balanced, and energized to seek out the wealth and wisdom that it can help you accrue.
