If you are struggling to lose weight, you are in good company; billions of people around the globe are fighting an uphill battle in the weight loss war as well. Yes, billions. Studies show that two out of three Americans are overweight or obese. According to the World Health Organization, 1.6 BILLION people worldwide are overweight.

The breads, cereals, cakes, rolls, muffins and donuts that are stacked on the grocery store shelves and piled high in display cases are made from refined flours. When this flour is processed, any health benefits that existed in the original grain is gone: these foods are all sugar and no fiber. Our bodies did not evolve to consume foods like this.

This book provides sensible advice on how to regain your normal weight quickly and safely.

“Weight Loss”: Developing Your Own Weight Loss Plan

  • Posted on April 16, 2012 at 11:06 am

 Are you interested in losing weight?  If you are, you may have been told to create your own weight loss plan. Weight loss plans, which serve as guides and motivation for many individuals, have been known to help many achieve their weight loss goals. Although it is more than possible for you to join a local weight loss program or an online weight loss program and have a weight loss plan given to you, many take comfort in creating their own, customizable weight loss plans.

If this is your first time attempting to create a weight loss plan for yourself, you may be unsure as to how you should proceed. If that is the case, you will want to continue reading on. Below, a few of the many components of a weight loss plan are outlined for your convenience.

Perhaps, the most important component of a weight loss plan is that of healthy eating.  Healthy eating is a vital component of losing weight. When it comes to healthy eating, you don’t necessarily need to cut junk foods, like chocolate, completely out of your diet, yet you should limit your intake.  If you find that you have a problem cutting junk food or sweets from your diet, you may want to create an eating schedule for yourself. That eating schedule could include days or meals where you allow yourself to have a treat.  In a way, you can consider that time as a reward for doing so well.

In addition to making a generalized schedule for yourself, you may also want to create a more detailed eating schedule.  To get started, you may want to research healthy recipes online or buy a healthy eating cookbook.  Once you have a collection of healthy foods to make, you can better plan out all of your meals.  To help prevent you from becoming bored with eating the same foods over and over again, you may want to experiment with different healthy foods and healthy recipes.  The best way to keep yourself focused and on task is to “spice,” up your weight loss plan as much as possible.

Aside from eating healthy, another important component of losing weight is regular exercise.  That is why your weight loss plan should include exercise. Similar to the healthy eating schedule outlined above, you may want to create an exercise schedule for yourself. When incorporating exercise into your workout plan, you have a number of different options. For instance, you can get a membership at one of your local gyms, buy workout DVDs to use at home, buy other exercise equipment, like a treadmill or a stair climber, or exercise for free with walking.

If you do decide to create your own exercise plan, there is something that you may be missing out on.  Should you join an online weight loss program or a local weight loss program, you would likely be a part of a larger group; a group that offers support to each other.  When creating your own weight loss plan, you may not necessarily have that same support. For that reason, you may want to think about seeing if you have any friends, family members, neighbors, or coworkers who would like to exercise with you.  Having a workout partner may help give you the support that you need, as well as serve as a little bit of motivation for you.

When creating a weight loss plan for you, you are advised to put your plan in writing.  You may even want to turn to your computer, as many computers have nice template programs that you can use to make easy to read schedules or charts.  Having your weight loss plan in writing, namely the exercises that you wish to do and the foods that you wish to eat and when, may help to motivate you with losing weight.  What you may want to do is post your schedules in a well-seen spot, like on your refrigerator.

In short, weight loss plans serve as guides, as well as motivation.  The above mentioned points are ones that you should keep in mind, when making a weight loss plan for yourself.

“Super Foods” for Super Weight Loss

  • Posted on February 20, 2012 at 8:36 pm

Experts say there are two basic categories of foods that can be considered "keeping it off superfoods" because they fill your tummy without piling on the calories: fruits and vegetables. And the nutrient that gives fruits and vegetables that ‘staying power?’ Fiber. So, if fruits and vegetables are the "keeping-it-off "superfood" groups," fiber may well be the "keeping-it-off super-nutrient."  Protein is another super-nutrient. It's becoming more scientifically accepted that protein may help to curb appetite. Protein also offers staying power, and can slightly boost your metabolism in the process.  But it’s imperative that you choose your proteins wisely, because like all other foods, if you’re eating more than your body needs, it’ll show up on the scale as a gain, instead of a loss.

The following "superfoods" are smart, low-calorie choices that will benefit your weight loss efforts:

Green Tea - Researchers suspect that the catechins (helpful phytochemicals) in green tea may trigger weight loss by stimulating the body to burn calories and mildly decrease body fat. So indulge in either a hot cup or a nice tall iced glass of green tea.

Broth- or tomato-based soup – Soups can help reduce hunger before meals and increase your feeling of fullness.

Low-calorie green salads - Having a low-calorie salad – which is not defined as one that’s loaded with croutons, high fat dressings, and cheese - as a first course can help you feel full, thereby reducing how much you eat with your main course.  Wisely choose your ingredients, and its high fiber content can be the key to helping you fight cravings later in the day.

Yogurt – Including dairy products as part of your healthy diet may promote your weight loss efforts.  Choosing a light yogurt may help you fight off hunger pangs due to its combination of protein and carbohydrate.

Beans – A great combination of fiber and protein, beans help you feel full longer, which means they may work to curb your between-meal appetite.

Water – Water is your body’s lifeblood, and you should be drinking it through your day. It’s a great no-calorie beverage, and you can get it by drinking unsweetened tea, flavored unsweetened mineral water, regular water with lime or lemon, or even in your cucumber.  In addition to helping flush toxins from the body, it can also help you feel full.  So when those hunger pangs strike, try drinking a glass of water before grabbing that snack.

High-Fiber, Whole-Grain Cereal - Whole grains in general help boost fiber and the nutritional value of your meal.  One of the easiest ways to give your daily diet a whole-grain boost is to have a bowl of higher-fiber whole-grain cereal as breakfast or a snack.
