THE SECRET SCIENCE OF LOSING WEIGHT!!!

February 5, 2011

When i wanted to lose weight i thought i could simply stop eating a burger or 2 ,a little exercise here and there and maybe a glass of water before i tuck into some Nandos and fries and then the pounds would fly off. (Doh!! so wrong!!)
But in today’s world where calories seem to be secretly hidden within so many foods and drinks we consume its time to get educated.
The problem is food companies are so bent on us buying their products they will bend the rules by putting healthy on the packet but increasing calories with salt ,fats and sugar so that there product taste good.
Losing weight is not a must for everyone, its more important to be at a healthy weight and looking after yourself!!!!!
Looking good it makes you feel good about your self and losing a bit of weight might bet healthy for your size. If you do have problems with your extreme weight loss or gain, we would advise to get one on one advise from a doctor!!!!
but here are a few tips on how to lose weight for that summer body!!!

WATER!!
Fact you can lose 62 calories by drinking ice cold water.
Water helps your kidneys to flush out the waste and metabolize fat more effectively, which mean to break down the fat. It’s best to drink water in between meals, try not to drink before as it will make you will feel full once you start eating.

EATING!!!
The more you eat for breakfast, the less food you will want to eat at night. If you skip this meal you’ll end up devouring everything in sight for the rest of the day.
Recommended 3 meals of a sensible size and 2 delicious yet low calorie snacks, nowadays you can find out on the packaging.
Eat sensibly so your body doesn’t crave for food. If you treat your body right it won’t demand for more attention!
Also eat at regular times as your body digestive system works like clock work, if you don’t your body weight will go up and down and that’s not healthy for anyone!!!!

WEIGHTS…
Exercise is crucial to weight loss. You can’t expect to sit on the couch all day, sip water and lose weight.
Join a good gym that lets you work with weights. It will help you build muscle and your metabolism rate will increase. Which helps you to break down your body fat!!!
You’ll soon see the fat come off and in its place muscle will develop.

FOOD IN TAKE!!
Check your portions the next time you eat. Its better to eating just enough than to eat until its hard to stand up!!!
Its more healthy for you to eat smaller meals than to eat massive meals unless your trying to put on weight. If you have cooked to much, just save it for later until your next meal.
Good advise is to get rid of the huge plates you usually use. Substitute them with small ones, when food starts to fall off, you’ll know it’s enough.
Try to get these new plates in dark colors. Dark blue will be your best choice since it’s the #1 color that fights off the appetite. Avoid red, orange and yellow where you eat, as they are the colours that make your appetite go sky high! (Think McDonalds’ logo and you’ll do fine, they are not random colors that they so happen to use)

READ BEFORE YOU BUY!!!!
Food and drink products are all out to get you. They scream ‘Buy me! Buy me!’. It could be ‘fat free’ but it could still have a lot of calories. You need to analyze the nutrition label on the cover, TRY NOT to be tempted with the frozen food or junk food as they are no good for you!!!!!!!!

WRITE IT UP!!!
Document what you eat. This way you can keep track and evaluate your eating habits at the end of each week. It will help you to see the results and keep your appetite under control. This way it will encourage you to watch what you eat and what will happen if you fall off the healthy band wagon.

PACE YOUR SELF…
If you begin to dislike your diet then there’s something wrong. Find a diet that suits your body type and your lifestyle. Be consistent as that is the key to being successful!!!!

I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU ON HOW TO LOSE A HEALTHY AMOUNT OF WEIGHT!!!! GOOD LUCK !!!!!!

TIPS ON HOW TO LOSE THAT BELLY FAT

January 25, 2011

We all have thing we don’t like about ourselves!!!!
But me and my friends every year always target the belly so here are the best ways to lose belly fat!!!!!!

CARBOHYDRATES

Prevent more fat from settling around your waist by avoiding processed carbohydrates, and replacing them with a healthier alternative. You’d be surprised how much of a difference this will make!

CARDIO

Plan at least one cardio exercise each week, such as going for a run. This is a good way to burn fat, and will also improve your general fitness! I don’t particularly like running, but I’ve found a few games of tennis and basket ball has the same effect.

AEROBICS

Aerobic exercises are great for burning fat and toning up, so try to find one you like. Something simple like an aerobics tape is easy to fit in, but if you need more motivation, go swimming and do an aerobics in water class, or join an aerobics class with a friend.

YOGA

As cardio and aerobics will improve you generally, you might get better results if you add some area targeting yoga to your schedule. Once you’ve learnt the moves, it’ll only take you five minutes to practise them, and your stomach will be looking great in no time!

PRACTICE POSTURE

Your posture will make a big difference to how you look, so make sure you sit up straight, with your head straight. You’ll train your muscles to sit correctly, which will help you to look good!

WATER

Make sure you are drinking enough water. If you aren’t getting 8 – 10 glasses a day, your body will find it hard to remove toxins, and you’ll be left finding it very hard to lose fat, and will feel very under the weather!

Belly fat is hard to lose, as the area is hard to target.
Combining the above will mean you lose your belly fat and increase your general fitness its a win win situation!!
GOOD LUCK!!!!
