This is Natural Weight Loss Explained
Natural weight loss can mean different things to different people. One dietitian has defined it as being the opposite of natural weight gain! Simply put, natural weight loss is the means of losing weight without the use of extreme diets, pills or supplements or other severe measures. Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to lose weight without the use of pills, supplements and starvation diets.
Losing weight naturally is closely associated with a healthy lifestyle and sleeping properly as well as proper diet and exercise. Advocates of natural weight loss see it as a way of life and a long term lifestyle change rather than something short term. The techniques to help ensure it are not new – they have been practiced for many years.
Of course, eating healthily is one of the best ways to lose weight safely and efficiently. Try to change your meal routine by eating five or six small meals in a day instead of the normal three. Eating this way will maintain metabolism throughout the day and ensure better absorption of nutrients. Read the rest of this entry
Do You Supporting Your Weight Loss Goals
As anyone who has ever been on diet knows, trying to lose weight is hard enough without any added pressures. While having your own personal weight loss coach would certainly help matters, for many people that is simply an unaffordable daydream.
Never the less, success stories around the world have proven that the most issue regarding successful weight loss is not the type of diet that you undertake, but rather the presence of moral support to help you along the way.
Moral support provides a number of useful benefits while attempting to lose weight. One of the most important of these benefits is motivation. The very act of letting others know that you intend to lose weight automatically makes you more accountable to lose the weight. While you may feel its okay to renege on your goals when it’s only you involved; you will be far less likely to break a promise to others. That in itself can be a strong motivator. In addition, a support network can make the time you spend exercising and dieting more enjoyable and feel less like a chore. Read the rest of this entry
About Diabetes And Weight Loss
Did you know that you can be ‘just a little bit diabetic’? The condition is technically called ‘pre-diabetes’, and it is characterized by persistent high blood sugar levels. Pre-diabetes is a serious condition, though its symptoms may be so subtle that you don’t notice them affecting your life. More importantly, it’s an indicator that there is something seriously wrong with your body. Left untreated, over 50% of those diagnosed with pre-diabetes will develop Type 2 diabetes within ten years.
If your doctor has told you that you are one of the more than 16 million Americans who has pre-diabetes, the American Diabetes Association has some very good news for you. In March 2005, the ADA released the results of the multi-year Diabetes Prevention Project. In a study that followed thousands of patients across the nation who had been diagnosed with pre-diabetes, the Diabetes Prevention Project found that patients who lost a ‘moderate’ amount of weight reduced their risk of developing full-blown diabetes by over 58%. Even more encouraging, many of those patients had managed to reverse their condition, and their blood sugar levels were well within normal ranges. Read the rest of this entry
