Good morning friends.  Are you fat?  Many of us were having a hard time to exercise daily, eat small amount of food, and take some diet pills.  But we all know that this is one of the factors to lose weight.  With reference to Mitch Felipe of Philippine Daily Inquirer and as many says that losing weight is a lifelong effort.  I want to share it with you and you can get some good tips how to lose weight.  We have to be patient if we want to look healthy and sexy.  It’s not easy but if you have belief that you can do it well, nothing is hard.

If you want to lose weight, then “to lose weight” should not be your goal.  Weight loss should be a lifestyle change which is the foundation of long-term weight control.   Being motivated is not enough to succeed in your weight-loss attempts. You should be ready to modify some aspects of your life. Even if you can lose weight at the start by exercising more and eating less, but you still go out late at night to drink with your friends, you will have a hard time losing weight consistently and maintaining your weight due to lack of sleep and extra calories from drinking and extra foods at night.

Why do a lot of dieters believe that weight management has an end? May be because they are tired of thinking and doing something about their weight all their lives and they want to put in mind that once they reach their goals, their problems will just come to an end.

Gina Kolata, author of the book “Rethinking Thin,” concludes in her book, which is about a two-year weight-loss study, that no matter what the diet is and how much effort is exerted for weight loss, most people will not be able to lose their desired weight.

The book implies that losing weight is a lifelong effort and the most important things to consider during the weight-loss process should not only be weight changes, but lessons learned like food control, feeling good about oneself and lifestyle change. E-mail the author at mitchfelipe@ gmail.com

If you own a heart-rate monitor, you know how effective it can be for keeping our heart rate in your target zone while running and cycling.  But one cardiologist says the monitors can be used to help eat stress during the rest of your day as well.  I have a friend whose job is highly stressful, and he wears his to work, says James M. Rippe, M.D., director of the Center for Clinical and Lifestyle Research and a professor of cardiology at Tuffs University School of Medicine.  He checks his heart rate now and then and he knows when he needs to take a break to unwind.  Dr. Rippe is finishing a year-long study of heart-rate monitors as stress-reduction tools.  Though he won’t reveal details of the study, he says some subjects and significant and measurable reduction in stress simply by monitoring their heart rates a few times a day.  (However, checking too often may actually cause stress, doctors wan.)  while stress is certainly not the only thing that increases heart rate (caffeine, physical activity and excitement do, too), Dr. Ripe says “it provides a window to what’s happening in the body.  You don’t have to go to  Tibet to de-stress; simply being in tune with your heart rate gives you a positive effect right away.

Good morning everybody.  Almost all of us were aiming to lose weight and get sexy especially to women.  The tendency of us when we are doing nothing is that we tend to eat.  Maybe not a hard food.  Some are eating while they are reading books, some are eating while they are watching  TV, some are eating while they are playing games in the computer.  We love to eat.  But all of us should be aware and should always be in control when eating, especially those fatty foods.

 

Before you start reading a diet book, apply weight loss approaches which have been successful for many people.   There are many books on weight loss that can teach you how to control your food eating.  There is this Bob Greene’s approach in his book “The Best Life Diet”.  It is easier to follow since it gives more time to gradually adjust to your new lifestyle. This is applicable to busy people who might not commit to a gym schedule or structured diet right away.

 

In Phase One, focus on eating breakfast, avoiding extra snacks and not eating two hours before you sleep and increasing daily physical activities like walking. This is more double than limiting the amount of food intake right away. Once you get used to your new habits, move on to Phase Two which encourages you to exercise more and eliminate at least six problem foods like pastries, fries and sodas. Phase Three is about developing weight loss skills. Recipes and sample plans are presented but the focus is still on moderation.
