Weight loss secrets you won't believe! They are so simple, thin people don't even know they do it!
It was Mother's Day brunch. I was 12 and my sister was 10. My family was notorious for going to brunches. As a child I remember waiting up to an hour just to get into a good Sunday brunch. This day we had already gotten up for seconds. Then thirds. After all, brunch is a time to splurge!
I was half way through my third round of little desert cakes, bacon and scrambled eggs when I looked over and noticed that my sister had stopped eating. "What's wrong?" I inquired dumbfounded. We were at brunch after all; you are supposed to stuff yourself silly.
The latest statistics say that 90% of all diet attempts fail. Why?! Sometimes we need more!
The first diet I went on (keyword "first" out of many) was calorie counting with Weight Watchers(R). They don't like to use the word "diet", but let's face it, they are giving you numerical parameters to follow. When calorie counting got such a bad rap in the 90s, because it really didn't solve our problems long term, they switched over to points, which was a fancy name for the grouping of calories. Don't get me wrong. Weight Watchers(R) has helped many women.
If you can’t get your mate to change, try these 9 tips to get them motivated for themselves.
You wish your sweetheart took better care of themselves and weren’t so overweight, but whenever you try to help, it backfires. You’ve tried friendly suggestions, cooked up healthy meals, kept cookies and ice cream out of the house, and resisted saying too much. Yet it bothers you that your significant other is only getting heavier and doesn’t seem to be doing anything about it, and it is affecting how you feel about them. Now what?
In the long term, diets don't work and can cause more harm than good.
If you’ve ever tried to lose weight, then you’re probably familiar with or have tried a number of diets. Growing up, I remember my mom going on the cabbage soup diet several times as well as the grapefruit diet and the “eat only bananas and milk one day, then only hot dogs the next day" diet. My personal favorite was the “chocolate milk for breakfast and lunch” diet.
Men who regularly skip breakfast face an increase risk of developing Diabetes by 21%-unbelievable.
Do you skip breakfast in an attempt to get to work early in the morning? Is is possible that this behavior will lead to diabetes. A prospective study that followed 30,000 men showed that those who skip breakfast, even if they maintain a good weight and have healthy eating habits the rest of the day may be increasing their risk for diabetes by as much as 21%. A team at the Harvard School of Public Health noted that people who skip breakfast are more likely to snack on sugary foods and do less exercise. Dr. Lain Frame from the UK supports the concept of three balanced meals every day.
Myth on calories in vs. calories out. Does it really equal weight loss?
I would like to talk on a myth I hear often and that is the myth of Calories In vs Calories Out = Weight Loss.
This one is tricky because, yes, if you eat excessively, you will gain weight, that is not a myth...however, the Calories in vs Calories out is deceptive!
We are made up of far more than just calories.
Ways to keep yourself energized in the bedroom! Find how eating habits can improve your sex life.
By: Malia Karlinsky, Love and Sex Editor from GalTime.
“The relationship between what you eat and your sex life is like the fuel you put into a car,” says nutritionist Elizabeth Somer. “Pump the nutritional equivalent of sawdust into your body and you are more likely to feel like a jalopy than a race car. Put high-octane foods into that system, rev it up with a bit of exercise and you will pump up your thrill quotient and reconnect with the Maserati within.”
Frustrated with dieting? Tired of feeling deprived? Learn how to NEVER eat anything - the right way!
I love working with people who are frustrated with dieting, and ready to be healthy.
One of the questions I hear a LOT from these clients in the beginning is:
“So, if I want to eat healthy, does that mean that I can NEVER eat (favorite unhealthy food) ever again?”
“I would love to try a plant-based diet, but I could NEVER give up my burgers”.
There is a lot of energy around NEVER.
