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.

DO you know that any changes in your eating habits will affect your metabolic rate?

Gaining weight is deceptively easy, especially if you’re not alert. What to do?

1. When brushing teeth, scrape the surface of your tongue. Health experts believe this is the best way to reduce the amount of germs/bacteria and infections entering your body.

2. Balance the pH in your system. Drink something alkaline like a cup of warm water with a slice of lemon or 1 tsp apple cider vinegar or a glass of alkaline water.

3. For the next seven days, take a pinch of rock salt with a glass of water. Place it on top of your tongue, then drink up. Salt will help you keep hydrated. Take 10-12 glasses daily.

4. Be kind to your liver. Abstain from fatty foods and alcohol for one week. Eat a handful of black grapes; it’s considered liver food.  Eat a fresh clove of garlic (mixed with food and not alone). Or take a capsule of garlic oil after meal.  Drink a glass of pure, fresh carrot and beat root juice.  Take 2 capsules of dandelion or fennel tea.

5.  Aside from liver, the other major detox organ is the kidneys.  Go easy on commercially prepared beverages unless they are low in sugar and preservative free.  Drink coconut water up to two glasses a day.  Take a warm cup of water mixed with fresh, wild honey (from bees) or coconut honey (from coco flower nectar).  Drink a glass of cranberry juice.  Eat two slices of fresh melon in the morning. Note: Best to eat it alone and not to eat any other food 30 minutes before and after you consume it as it may cause indigestion.

Good morning to every one.  As we all know Christmas is just around the corner.  Some are preparing for the stuff to buy, what food will be serve and some are preparing to burn calories now.  They thought of that for the preparation of craving much good food.  Irresistible time when Christmas is already there. 

Tired of battling the post holiday bulge?  This season, try trimming yourself instead of just the tree.

Okay, that’s it. You’re tired of that tire, fed up with that flab.  You’re going to burn off that belly and keep it off—for good.  Even if you’ve made your New Year’s resolution, and by gum, this time you’re going to stick to it.

Way to go.  Only one problem.  It’s not New Year’s yet.

It’s December, a month when even the most dedicated exercisers can fall off their schedules.  You’re staring down a long stretch of 31 days filled with parties and family gatherings, tray of cheese puffs and cocktail weenies.  This is not an easy time to jump-start your workout or begin a whole new training regimen.  Especially when you can always mumble,  “Well, there’s always next month…,” while choking down another sleigh-shaped butter cooked.

And burning calories doesn’t only take place in a gym.  Even if you’re slacking off this month or putting aside your exercise plans until the new year, you can still start losing weight.  Painlessly.  Here are 100 ways to burn 100 calories.

Let me continue this because I will be preparing all so that you can do it as soon as possible before Christmas comes……
