Bad Fats

As you learned in a previous post, there is good fat and there is bad fat.  This post is all about bad fats, also known as trans fats, or trans fatty acids, and why they are so bad for you.

Choosing Healthy Foods Now Called An Eating Disorder

I subscribe to Natural News, and this is their top story for today.  Read it and be amazed.  What will the psychiatric industry come up with next????

Article can be viewed at Natural News.

(NaturalNews) In its never-ending attempt to fabricate "mental disorders" out of every human activity, the psychiatric industry is now pushing the most ridiculous disease they've invented yet: Healthy eating disorder.

Eat Fat to Lose Fat

Carrying on from our discussion of butter, the next logical topic is...fat.  "Fat" is an evil word that has been demonized for the last...oh, 50 years or so.  The first thing you readers need to understand is that there are good fats, and there are bad fats. This post will concentrate on good fats.  Bad fats will come later.

Why Eat Butter?

Woo, is this ever a contested issue. But here we go.

Butter is good for you.

A More Efficient Way to Exercise

Here is an amazing article from Dr Mercola, one of the leading experts in natural health.  Please read this, as this information could change your life!  Get fit, lose weight, live longer!
See his button near the very bottom of the page.

The Major Exercise Mistake I Made for Over 30 Years
By Dr Mercola

A recent study shows that ten minutes of brisk exercise triggers metabolic changes that last at least an hour. What's more, the more fit you are, the more benefits you will get.

Hydration is Key

Water is a basic life requirement. Our bodies are composed of (approx) 70% water-practically every system uses water. Blood, brain, breathing, organs, joints, muscles, skin...all of these things and more are dependent upon water. Dehydration is the #1 trigger for daytime fatigue-not lack of sleep!

What may be surprising to some is the link between weight loss (or optimal weight maintenance) and adequate hydration. I read on that water makes your metabolism burn 3% faster. In addition, being sufficiently hydrated allows your body to be working at peak performance. That's a desirable outcome.

Weight Loss Tips that Work

Weight Loss Tips that Work
by Rebecca MacLary (Berry)

This article is comprised of 20 weight loss tips that you need to follow in order to lose weight and keep it off.  Many weight loss tips from other sites give you poor or unproven advice.  The thing about these weight loss tips is, I KNOW THEY WORK.  I follow them myself. I have been successful in assisting others to lose weight – all based on following these simple weight loss tips.  If you think all of this is a little overwhelming, start with a few of the tips and work your way up.  You'll see that it's easier to continue once you've seen lost some weights and realize this really works.

Each point has been briefly explained.  I will delve into each one in a more in-depth manner in upcoming posts.  In the meantime, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact me.

1.  Forget about using a “diet” for a few weeks or months then going back to your old bad habits.  It won’t work.

2.  You need to change your lifestyle, for good.  You got to the shape you’re in now by having bad eating and/or exercise habits.

3.  Weight Loss is achieved through controlling what you put in your mouth.  It’s as easy as that.  Weight loss is 80% food choices and 20% exercise.
