How Can You Start to Lose Weight?

To lose weight in today’s world is one of the toughest feats one can accomplish.

With fast food restaurants on the rise and easy microwaveable dishes for quick meals, it is no wonder that so many people are overweight and are unable to lose weight.

How do you plan for weight loss when chips and soft drinks for snacks and a burger on the run is how many people eat on a daily basis.

However, the biggest issue to deal with when you are trying to lose weight are the negative thoughts that accompanies being overweight.

Do Your Thoughts Control What Happens To You…

Negative thoughts tend to override the positive in many peoples lives and they come out in full force on those who are facing the task of trying to lose weight.

The most important thing one can do before trying to lose weight is to begin a daily journal.

By keeping a daily journal for two weeks, you will be able to understand when and why these negative thoughts come out and how they may hinder your attempt to lose weight.

By focusing first on the habits you have, you will begin to understand how you can plan for weight loss before you actually begin to lose weight.

When you start your journal, you’ll want to include

  • what you are eating,
  • what time it is, and
  • how you feel at that particular moment.
  • Are you having any negative thoughts?

If so, write down what they are and move on.

Were you actually hungry when you ate? Write this down, as well.

Don’t worry about your weight loss program, just record your entries.

IMPORTANT: An entry should be made for every snack, meal, or any  binging session you have and any thoughts about trying to lose weight.

This will help you to develop your weight loss program.

After the two weeks of entering your eating times and thoughts into your daily journal, sit down and analyze the results.

How many times did you have a snack (not meals) when you were having negative thoughts?

How many times did you eat when you weren’t hungry but were having negative thoughts?

Most often, you’ll discover you do not follow a weight loss program because of negative thoughts.

These negative thoughts are what will stop you from trying to lose weight and they must be changed to more positive thoughts if your weight loss program is to be a success.

Now is the Time to Move on and Use What You Learned

Now that you’ve discovered how you are feeling when you eat and when negative thoughts are entering your mind, it is time to plan for weight loss.

If you want to lose weight you need to get rid of the negative thoughts such as, “I’ll never lose weight and I’m so fat.”

Instead, replace them with, I’m getting slimmer and slimmer every day, and “I look more and more beautiful and fit every day”.

Be positive that you will lose weight and if a negative thought enters your mind, get rid of it by replacing it with a more positive statement about yourself.

By getting rid of negative thoughts, you’ll able to follow your weight loss program.

This will help you to lose weight and regain a healthier lifestyle.

By forming a plan to lose weight, you’ll be able to discover patterns in your behavior such as negative thoughts, that influence your eating habits.

To lose weight is difficult; however, if you can begin by changing negative thoughts to more positive ones, you’ll begin to lose weight at once.

Lose Weight With Treadmill Weight reduction Workouts

Perseverance is the key to losing weight with a treadmill!

Your treadmill can give  you a  really great weight reduction workout. Currently most fitness treadmills come equipped with a small  working personal computer that  can offer fat loss or weight loss programs.

How do treadmill machine work outs designed to lose weight  work?

It can be pretty simple, such as it just  modifies the slope so you preserve 65% of your top heart rate (“MHR”). Simply treadmills along with computers can cater to weight loss fitness treadmill machine workout routines.  They can be programmed into the treadmill controller.

The idea in most treadmill machine weight loss programs is basically that you burn the most  fat by carrying out long  workouts with 65% of your optimum HR. Maximum Heart Rate is usually   determined by keeping track over time.

An hour or so work out seems to be the average for most programs on treadmills.  You will have to consult your manual or program in your machine to determine the correct one as each machine is different.

Once you enter your age plus weight, then   as long as you allow the treadmill to get the HR for  working out, your treadmill may adjust the incline which means you maintain 65% within your MHR while doing the work out.

From what I have observed with most treadmill plans, it is necessary to work out for at least a half-hour or more at 65% of  MHR in order to  lose weight.

Of course, you can buy a heart rate monitor and just maintain 65% of this max. pulse rate while training. The more up to date Treadmills provide the means  to modify the slope of the treadmill  to maintain 65%.

What’s wrong with the treadmill machine computerized process?

Their computations are based on averages and do not seemingly take into account people with higher or lower MHR.  In my case it is lower, so it will take longer for me to reach the figures that their computer uses to increase or decrease the slope in order to maintain 65% MHR as part of the workout.

This means as a way to effectively apply the 65% fat loss treadmill training session, you need to find out what your a real maximum heartbeat is. Treadmills are developed to select some sort of MHR based on years. That said, you are able to   target Human resources that the fitness treadmill will support.  So by selection you might be able to put in an incorrect age and MHR and fool the treadmill into performing a workout for you based on these new inputs!

It’s important to establish your specific MHR. Then you do not have to go with the actual age-based maximum An hour which may not your legitimate max. Time.

The best way to determine your real max heart rate is to workout until your monitor gets to the point that it is reporting what your doctor has told you should be your MHR for your age and physical condition.

How can treadmill  assist you with weight-loss?

Many treadmill machines offer cardiovascular system rating alerts. This means you’ll be able to conveniently take your heart beat while exercising on a fitness treadmill and ensures you will   be maintaining 65% of this maximum heart beat for maximum fat loss.

Problem:

Quite a few treadmill beats per minute sensors are on a fixed spot – like the hand grip.  If you use the particular treadmill fat reduction plan, the treadmill machine computer demands you keep your hands on the receptors in order to record your heart rate and keep the treadmill adjusted to the program you have selected.

This is a trouble, I like to carry hand weights, especially if I am running on the treadmill in order to increase my workload and get more out of the work out in the same amount of time.   I prefer a heart sensing unit that evaluates HR and does not require having to hold onto a set handle.

Solution:

Find a treadmill machine with instant heart rate monitors that will attach to part of your body that may measure a person’s heart rate.

If you intend to buy a treadmill that uses computerized workouts based on MHR then this information should be handy.

Control Blood Sugar without Medications

Learn How to Control Blood Glucose Levels

How to Lower Your Blood sugar without Medications

Learning how to lower your blood sugar without medications is a choice for someone diagnosed with Type 2 Adult Onset Diabetics not for someone with Type 1 or Juvenile Diabetes where the body cannot produce insulin and supplementation is necessary..

With weight loss and exercise you can put your self in  control or your  diabetes. The secret to successfully doing this and getting control of diabetes is a new approach.  What you eat, when and how much food you eat   will make a big difference in reaching your goal.   It is  also important how often and how much you exercise.

There are two parts to success: a meal plan and an exercise program.

A sugar control diet is necessary to make the change from having out of control sugar and rampant diabetes.   A really good diet plan to manage diabetes must include meal planning, scheduled meals and snacks to keep body metabolism working throughout the day.   It must be coupled with regular exercise to work.

Regular exercise has to be included as it helps to burn calories by providing the body with oxygen and circulation and  in turn keeps body metabolism at a higher level  burning up calories consumed. This will definitely help to eliminating body fat. If you want to know how to lower your blood sugar  and keep it low,  keep reading.

Lowering  blood sugar without medications is the beginning of a new way of living.

Most diet programs available today could be adapted to keeping your blood sugar in control.  However, you must plan your calorie intake each day to match what your caregiver has prescribed for you whether it is 1200 calories or even 2000 calories depending on your body size, gender and activity level.

So to get started let’s discuss implementing your

sugar control diet

 A Meal plan or meal planning is the first necessity to successfully control blood sugar while becoming healthy from what you eat.

Step one: plan your schedule for Meals.

Optimal results are obtained by eating:

Breakfast, then a mid-morning snack. (optional).

Lunch,   plus an afternoon snack.

Dinner and a “just before bedtime snack”.

Food Pyramid has been replaced by the Portion Plate

Food Pyramid lists all the types of food we need to eat.

In other words 6 “meals” each day.

Healthy dieting must include foods in proportion from all the food groups: protein, fat, and carbohydrates.

These food groups include most vegetables, fruits, grains, nuts and beverages.

Protein in small amounts in each and every meal and snack is required to make this sugar control diet work.

Protein is slower to digest, which keeps your metabolism working and helps prevent feeling hungry and deprived.

Acceptable proteins include:

Steak and vegetable Kebabs

Steak and Vegetable Kebabs will fit into a healthy diet.

lean red meat, ideally no more that 3 oz.s. three times per week

unbreaded fish, unbreaded chicken, raw nuts, eggs,

cottage cheese and unsweetened (plain or flavored) yogurt can be used to satisfy your requirement for protein which should be 10% to 35% of your overall diet.

Dried beans, nuts and seeds can be considered protein but were sometimes listed as “incomplete” in the past and required eating  other foods to make a  “complete” protein….my only advise is to note  portion size and calories  to fit them into your diet.

Carbohydrates includes fruits, vegetables and grains.

Vegetables: Vegetables, especially raw vegetables are your friend.

Raw green and red vegetables are unlimited. Eat as much as you want at any meal or snack.

Some vegetables have the reputation for burning more calories than they provide especially Celery.

Lettuce, Cabbage, Broccoli, are great “treats” when combined with a homemade yogurt dip flavored with zero calorie spices from your spice rack.

Cooked vegetables regardless of color and yellow or orange vegetables and potatoes, rice, bread are in the measure category:

1/2 cup equals a serving or the equivalent of one slice of bread and must be calculated into your daily calorie allowance.

The exception is corn creamed or whole kernel which is 1/3 cup. Some fun recipes are available at Cararta’s Facts including  celery sticks stuffed with peanut butter .

Fruits: Fruits include almost any fresh fruits or berries except for mango and bananas. No fruit juice…except as listed under beverages! Fresh means fresh so no canned or  dried fruit. Can use frozen if no sugar added.

Grains: Some diets restrict bread, oatmeal, grits and rice however I often have a sandwich for lunch including two slices of bread, all you have to do is make sure to include these calories in your daily allowance and have a protein filling and you will be fine.

The body needs a certain amount of carbohydrate for quick energy while waiting for the protein to digest. A small baked potato with 1 tablespoon of regular sour cream with dinner won’t wreck your diet.   Again just keep track of what you eat!

Beverages: Water is great!. Unsweetened tea also works.  If you count the calories you can have fresh fruit juices no added sugar diluted with water…half water-half juice (grape is good) but count the calories! I love coffee, but found more than a cup per day seemed to slow down my weight loss. Your choice!

Not listed but important is fat. Every diet should include a certain small amount of fat. You can get this from lean red meat, oily fish, certain nuts, olive oil (salad dressing) canola oil…an amount daily equivalent to 3 pats of butter! Fat helps with sugar control as it’s digestion takes longer than carbohydrates so it helps maintain a level sugar rate with fewer spikes and lows. Forget the fake “butters” what is in them is worse than fat!

While on the food part of this program: I personally do not like “lite” fat free, reduced fat, sugar free or artificially sweetened anything.

Besides their unpalatable taste, they often contain more calories than the original because of attempts to make them “taste” acceptable. It has become accepted that some of these altered foods can cause digestive problems (diarrhea when over consumed). Decide for yourself.

Final recommendation regarding the diet part of the control blood sugar plan. There are certain supplements and herbs that many people believe can help with controlling  blood sugar.  Two that I use are Cinnamon and Chromium. Do your own research or talk to a nutritionist or your care giver.

Add Exercise onto your “Daily Menu” 

Exercise: exercise is necessary to lose weight and control blood sugar and stop taking medications.

Just like the scheduled meal plan, exercise should be on the “menu” every day. The easiest, least expensive and probably the best exercise is Walking. Walking uses your whole body, especially if you swing your arms when you walk. Thirty minutes a day or the equivalent is required.

Riding a stationery bicycle if you can’t walk or don’t have a place to walk will meet your exercise requirements. If you can’t walk for 30 minutes, break it up into smaller amounts, gradually increasing until you can walk for 30 minutes.

Find a good exercise plan, preferably one that comes with a really good diet plan if you want to include some structured exercises and can’t afford a gym membership or a personal trainer.  Many are available for less than the cost of a monthly gym membership or a training session with a trainer.  Inviting a friend to share might make it easier to stick to your exercise routine.

Some Final Thoughts.

Adhering to this diet will improve your life by improving your blood sugar level.  This information will help someone who isn’t a Diabetic but just wants to improve their quality of life by dropping a few pounds.

If you are currently taking medications for your diabetes, keep a close check on your sugar levels and consult with your caregiver regarding adjustments to medications. Losing weight usually reduces blood sugar levels and leads to having more energy and less of that tired feeling common with uncontrolled diabetic blood sugar levels and sometimes lowers requirements for medication.

A footnote: If you are overweight or have close relatives with diabetes and uncontrolled blood sugar, there is the possibility that using this diet will help prevent diabetes or delay the onset of diabetes.

Finally follow your scheduled eating times using the correct food combinations and do a little walking and you will soon know how to control blood sugar levels without medications!

Looking for the ideal weight loss menu plan to help you achieve your goal of slimming down and reaching your goal weight?

Are you looking for a weight loss menu plan that would help you achieve this goal without starving and going on some extreme fad diet that requires you to sacrifice your calories or your carbohydrates?

Calorie shifting may be the answer.

Calorie shifting is a revolutionary new weight loss program that touts rapid weight loss on the order of 9 pounds every 11 days, which, for all intents and purposes, is just a tad shy of one pound of weight loss per day.

This extreme weight loss is not achieved by reducing the number of calories or carbohydrates that you consume.

On the contrary, you can achieve these astounding weight loss results by shifting the types of calories that you consume, rotationally from meal to meal, and from day to day.

In other words, you would be eating a balanced diet of plentiful food from all four of the major food groups.

The only twist is that you must divide up your diet into different calorie types.

You must shift the calorie types that you consume sequentially at each meal. For example, you might have meat and fruit together at one meal. Or you might have meat and dairy together at another meal. Or you might have dairy and vegetables together at another meal.

You might have a day that emphasizes mostly on fruits and  have another day that emphasizes mostly on dairy products.

By shifting your calories in this manner, you are capable of literally manipulating your body’s metabolism, at will, to burn your body’s fat stores for energy.

There is no need to count calories on this weight loss menu plan.

Therefore, you are free to eat as much quantity of food as you desire at each meal, until you reach the brink of becoming too full.

Would you like to try out an 11-day sample menu?

The Calorie Shifting Diet is a revolutionary dieting breakthrough.

This diet succeeds where others fail.

Low-calorie, low-carbohydrate, low-fat, and low-sodium diets are all doomed to fail.

It’s very hard to maintain those diets without running the risk of falling into temptation and sabotaging your own diet.

Calorie Shifting works on an entirely different principle: Eat as much food as you want at each meal until you are completely satisfied. You can eat foods from all four major food groups.

Is there a catch? There sure is, but once you learn what it is, you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

You’ll kick yourself for wondering why you wasted your time on other diets when you should have been following the

Calorie Shifting diet!

The Calorie Shifting diet even offers its own customizable Online Diet Generator to help you create fool-proof diet plans that are guaranteed to help you lose at least 9 pounds every 11 days!
