Your Destination...Loss Weight

Your Destination...Loss Weight
I’d like to share you  a few thoughts that may help you on your weight loss journey. The words we speak are very powerful and those words create an attitude. How often have you used the term, “my weight?” You may have made the comments like these:

“When I lose my weight. . . .”
“My weight doesn’t let me. . .”
“I can’t . . . . because of my weight”

Do see a common thread throughout these statements? Can you make an educated guess at how many times you have said one of them or something similar? From our earlier discussion, you probably already noticed the “negative” affirmations . . . when . . .doesn’t . . . can’t. . . Read them again more carefully. Do you see the other critical factor in each statement?


Each of those statements re-affirms that you “own” your weight. Therefore, each time you make that comment not only are you reaffirming your current weight, you are pronouncing to the world that you are not willing to let go. 
Your Destination...Loss Weight
Using a personal pronoun is powerful stuff, because not only are you claiming ownership, you are training your subconscious mind to believe that you can’t let go.

Starting today . . . right now . . . this very minute, make a conscious decision that you no longer accept ownership of excess weight. You are not what you weigh. You are a unique human being and entitled to all the gifts that this life has to offer.

Diet Sucks? Just Go through the Coolest 50 Tips Ever

Diet- Coolest 50 Tips
Avoid “fad” diets. If you don’t believe me, ask your doctor about these: negative calorie diets, extremely low calorie diets, low carb diets, and any other type of “fad” diet that is unbalanced. Changing diet should be a matter of healthier life style. Learn all you can about different foods and nutrition. The more you know
the easier it is to implement healthy nutrition in your diet.

1. Substitute fruit purees for butter or margarine. They are easy to prepare in a food processor and will significantly reduce calories and fat.

2. Cheese is good for you, but the fat is not. Try this: Zap cheese in the microwave and drain off grease.

3. Exercising before you eat just makes you hungrier. Exercise AFTER eating when the body has to work harder to digest food.

4. Don’t eat while watching television. You can become so engrossed in your program that don’t realize how much you are eating.

5. Too many people skip breakfast. Eat in the morning when the body burns more calories.

6. Water mixed with fructose suppresses appetite better than glucose with water or diet drinks. Drink a glass of orange juice one half to one hour before a meal.

7. Avoid trans-fatty acids. Use olive, corn or canola oil when cooking.

8. Switch from whole to skim milk. All the nutrients are there without the fat. Okay, at least cut back to low fat!

9. Limit yourself to just four egg yolks a week.

10. Trim all fat from meats before cooking. You’ll be amazed at how much you reduce your fat intake if you take this one small step.

11. Eliminate fried foods. Do we need to say why?

12. Cream sauces like Alfredo and hollandaise are loaded with fat.Use tomato based sauces instead of cream.

13. Use lemon juice or low sodium soy sauce for flavor.

14. Don’t skip meals. When you do, you eat more at your next meal and usually eat the wrong foods.

15. Read labels – check fat, sugar and carb content.

16. Stop buying on impulse. Never shop for groceries without a list.

17. Avoid shopping when you are hungry – eat first!

18. Shop for groceries once a week and only buy from your prepared list.

19. Head directly to the fruit and vegetable aisles when you enter the grocery store. Fill up your basket in these aisles and you’ll be less likely to buy binge food.

20. If you have a local “farmers market” where you can buy your fruits and veggies off the truck, by all means do so. They’ll be fresher and tastier.

21. Make sure you buy everything you need for your weekly meal planning. Returning to the grocery store numerous times increases the risk of buying what you shouldn’t. The grocery stores know their business very well and present items that are hard to resist.

22. Vary your foods – introduce something new each week. Menu planning can become boring when you eat the same things. That boredom translates into over eating. Try new healthy recipes each week.

23. Stay away from processed foods as much as possible. Yes, they are very convenient. They are also loaded with fat and/or sugar,not to mention the chemicals.

24. The ads are soooo compelling. Cut fast food from your diet!

25. Eat more fish but avoid breading or batters. Fish oil is good for you.

34. Don’t give up potatoes. A baked potato has 0 grams of fat and only 160 calories. Just don’t eat fries that weigh in at 13 fat grams and 480 calories!

35. Stay away from pastries. They are loaded with fat and are also loaded with sugar.

36. Eat more salads but don’t let salad become boring. Add different ingredients. Throw in a few raisins, canned beans like garbanzos and vary your dressings. Leave out the mayo!

37. Limit your intake of meat to just two or three meat choices per week and select more “white” meats than red.

38. You don’t have to give up dessert, just rearrange it. Try mixing fresh fruits with low fat yogurt. Strawberries with banana yogurt is delicious! 39. Add nuts to your yogurt and salads. Chopped nuts make a great alternative to “breaded” style garnishes like croutons.

40. Replace white bread with whole grain bread. If you can find bread that still contains the “wheat germ,” buy it!

41. When baking, applesauce makes a great substitute for shortening.

42. Prepare foods in different ways. Instead of traditional frying, try stir-fry and use a low fat spray or non-stick pan.

49. Eat more yogurt. Yogurt is a protein as well as a carbohydrate therefore giving you the small amount of energy needed to burn the protein.

50. Add more tuna to your diet. You can grill it, broil it, steam it and poach it, all without any added fat.

Calcule Ideal Weight For Women

Ideal Weight For Women
The ideal weight for a woman who is exactly 5 feet tall is
100 pounds. For every additional inch above 5 feet, add five
pounds. If you are shorter than 5 feet tall, subtract five pounds
for every inch you measure below 5 feet.
Next, determine whether you have a small, medium or
large frame. Using a measuring tape, measure your wrist. If
your wrist measures exactly 6 inches, you have a medium frame
and the weight number you calculated above, does not need to
be adjusted. If your wrist measures less than 6 inches, subtract
10 percent from your ideal weight. If your wrist measures more
than 6 inches, add 10 percent to your ideal weight.

10 Natural Ways to Stop Feeling Depressed

  •  My life is gone...
  • I will never be happy??!!
  • Where i can get a little peace?

            Do any of these gloomy thoughts sound familiar ah? It’s likely they do. The occasional case of the blues is perfectly normal, but that doesn’t make dealing with it any easier. If you allow them to, negative thoughts can fester and lead to serious depression. That’s why it’s important to take action early to bust yourself out of a slump.
While these little suggestions won’t eliminate your problems, they can help you break a negative thought pattern and stop feeling depressed. If you think you might have a serious mental health problem, don’t hesitate to see a medical professional.

1. Understand  life, Understand the emotional cycle – Life is an emotional roller coaster. Some days you feel like nothing can stop you at any. Other days you feel utterly hopeless isn't it. Most of the time you’re somewhere in between. Understanding the pattern of positive and negative emotions will help you put your feelings in perspective. Next time you feel down, just remember that it’s a natural emotion that will inevitably pass. Knowing that a feeling of depression is only temporary makes it less dreadful.

2. Spend days with positive people – Nothing affects the way you think and feel more than the people you interact with. Thoughts (both positive and negative) are contagious. If you are surrounded by negative people, it’s only natural that you’ll start to think and feel the same way they do. To improve your outlook on life, there is only one way, spend time with positive people. Search them out and try to understand the way they see the world. Chances are their happiness will rub off.

3. Take a glance to past success – In the wake of a colossal failure, it’s easy to forget everything you’ve ever done right. Take a few minutes to remember your past accomplishments and achievements and then build yourself up. What made you successful before? What are your strengths? Frequently, this exercise will build self confidence, help you figure out what went wrong, and generate ideas for success in the future.

4. Concentrate on gratitude – It’s human nature to measure ourselves against those ahead of us on the social ladder. Most of us do this regularly. Studies have shown that people care more about being richer than their friends than actually making more money. When you consider everything good in your life and compare it to the problems of less fortunate people, the issue that’s making you depressed won’t seem as serious.

5. Change of the scenery – There is one of the best ways to change the way you feel is to change your environment. When you get in a slump, you start to associate your problems with everything around you. It can get to the point where your environment is a constant reminder of your problems. This can be a dangerous cycle. The solution is to change things. Change doesn’t have to be radical. Cleaning up, adding more lights, or including pleasant decorations can completely change the mood of a room.

6. Break your daily routine - Everyday going through the same routine, day after day, can be monotonous and depressing. It often leads to getting caught in a rut. To get out of it you need to temporarily change your routine. If you can, take a day off from work. Do something you don’t normally have time for or something you’ve never tried. In the long run, taking a day off every now and then to get out of slump will make you happier and more productive.

7. Interact with animals and cool nature – It’s funny when you consider how humans put so much importance on their own tiny problems. Animals don’t think this way, that funny ah ?. A little bird doesn’t mope around because it isn’t an eagle or because another bird beat it to a tasty seed. Animals live in the present moment and they show love unconditionally. Observing and interacting with them will help you get over your problems.

8. Get moving to somewhere or anywhere– As great Johnny Cash famously suggested, “Get a rhythm, when you get the blues.” Moving to a beat makes everyone feel better. The same is true for movement in general. Hitting the gym or going for a walk will help you shed the lethargy that comes with feeling depressed. The more enthusiastic your moments, the better you will start to feel.

9. Think about the big picture. Universe– As Carl Sagan made evident with the Pale Blue Dot, we’re insignificant creatures living in a vast universe on a tiny planet. In the long run, everything we do will probably be forgotten. Some of us might find this depressing, but it shouldn’t be. It means that all our problems are illusory. In a million years no one will remember what you did or didn’t do. What matters is the present moment and enjoying every second of life that we’re blessed with.

10. Do something which can help yourself – Above all, the best way to stop feeling depressed is to take a string action. What is your biggest problem? How can you alleviate it? Once you decide to stop moping and start moving forward you won’t have time to feel depressed. Action will occupy your mind and give you something to look forward to. Once you get some results, you’ll build momentum and positive thinking will keep getting easier.

Echinacea does not cure the common cold

Although it has long been believed that the herb echinacea cures the common cold, it turned out that it only can shorten the duration of symptoms

It has long been considered that the plant Echinacea can cure colds, but a new study published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine showed that it can at best only shorten duration of colds.

Scientists from the University of Wisconsin tracked more than 700 patients diagnosed with common colds. They divided them into two groups - one group were given a pill containing echinacea, a second placebo pill, with the proviso that no one knew what drink tablets. At the end of the study, patients who took Echinacea were not cured, only to shorten the period in which they felt symptoms.

While, therefore, there is no evidence that echinacea cures colds, the researchers note that people who believe that it helps them do not need to sacrifice because it still has a placebo effect, and is not dangerous.

Placebo effect works even when the patient knows that it gets it

Most people think that there will not be an placebo effect if the patient knows that he instead of the drug gets a sugar pill, but new research suggests that they are wrong

Placebo effect works even when the patient knows that instead of a specific drug he takes something that has nothing to do with this, published this week by researchers from Harvard Medical Center and Beth Israel Deaconess in Boston in the scientific journal PLoS ONE. In an unusual experiment by which it sought to better understand the placebo effect has shown that about 60 percent of patients suffering from irritable bowel felt much better after the deliberate taking placebo twice a day - on the other hand, in 35 percent of patients who have not passed any new treatment are not observed improvements. Ted Kaptchuk, who led the research said that the bottles that the patients are given a clearly visible inscription 'Placebo '. Pills inside them did not contain any active ingredient, but mostly of inert ingredients. Otherwise, the placebo effect is known since the very beginnings of medicine.

It is extremely important for research of new medicines and treatments and is well known, as confirmed by numerous documents, that is between 30 and 40 percent of patients feel better after taking a placebo without knowing that it was a sugar pill. However, in the context of standard medical treatment and believes that giving placebos to the patient without his knowledge unethical move. In addition, most people believe that a placebo will have no effect if the patient knows what it is. But Kaptchuks research suggests just the opposite. He and his colleagues analyzed the condition of 80 patients with symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome characterized by abdominal pain. Particular part of the patients were told that during the next three weeks taking nothing but a placebo. Anthony Lembo, noted expert on the medical problem with the gut who participated in the study, said it was strange to talk to patients to literally take only a placebo, but it was even stranger was that it turned to acting. The entire project is funded by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine.

Almonds are helping in the treatment of diabetes

As stated by the new study, eating almonds helps to prevent diabetes and heart disease
Researchers have found that the introduction of these nuts in the diet may help in treating type 2 diabetes, which is the most common form of this disease. Besides helping in the fight against diseases associated with obesity and lack of physical activity, almonds reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

In fact, diabetics have a deficiency of insulin or a reduced ability to use this hormone by which glucose is converted into energy. When diabetes is not controlled, glucose and fats remain in the blood and over time, damage vital organs.

The study found that a diet rich in almonds can improve insulin sensitivity and reduce levels of bad cholesterol in those with pre-diabetes, a condition where people have an increased level of sugar in the blood, but not enough to be a highly classified as diabetes.

Research conducted by the Medical University of New Jersey, followed by the effects of almond consumption in 65 adults in the phase of pre-diabetes. The group that consumed the almonds showed a significant improvement in terms of insulin sensitivity and reduction of bad cholesterol. It is estimated that in Europe 55 million people suffer from this disease.

You are forgetful? Perhaps you are suffering from some kind of infection!

Forgetfulness is in our blood, according to research that associates 'distraction' with inflammation in the body

High levels of protein in the blood could be the cause of forgetfulness and distraction. Increased concentrations of C-reactive protein (CRP), in fact, makes us look to the future planning, German scientists discovered the University of Munster.

For this reason, the changes in the density of white matter in the brain, which indirectly leads to forgetfulness, because the man was a substance linked to brain regions responsible for memory.

The study showed forgetfulness associated with protein is not innate, but it depends on the inflammation in the body, because inflammation causes increased production of CRP.

The high stakes of this protein also increases the risk of sclerosis and heart attacks and strokes. However, it is not yet proven whether reducing CRP levels and improve memory.

Measuring CRP in the blood used for diagnostic purposes as an indicator of acute inflammation. Values between 10 and 40 mg / L indicate easier to inflammation, a value above 200 mg / L indicate a serious bacterial infection.

Walking speed affects the lifespan?

Slower walk is proved to be one of the key factors in the longevity in 20 years long study 

People all over the world today are living longer than ever before, a new study shows who could live longer. Data from the study could help doctors and the elderly in the planning of medical treatment and care.

There are not many of those who experience the hundredth, and still drive the car. But Mazerine Wingate is one of them. His vision is still sharp. But that's not all. He is always working! And six days a week, in a post office in the State of Maryland. There he began working in his 60th-year as a cleaner. He says that there are no health problems. Asked who would be able to give advice to others for a long and happy life, the centenarian replied: "Move, move, constantly moving ".

And while it is very strange that people that age are still employed, there is less unusual to reach one hundredth. Doctor Neil Buckholtz, National Institute for problems of aging says that all the longer lifetime becomes a problem for governments around the world: "The population of people of advanced age is increasing, not only in the United States, but throughout the world. Actually, the segment of the population that is The fastest growth in the United States are precisely those over 85 years. "

A new study shows a link between walking speed and life expectancy. Scientists have observed the speed of walking and other indicators of health in almost 35 000 older persons. Followed by up to 20 years. The research was led by Dr. Stephanie Studenski of the University of Pittsburgh: "The speed of your walk, tells us how well-functioning system of your body. "

By measuring the speed of walking and using tables for calculating longevity, doctors can provide better care to their patients. For example, most doctors do not send patients to the possibility of prostate cancer after their 70th year. However, if it is otherwise healthy and vital man who could survive for at least another ten years, it would be such a review would be of use.

For those who have poorer health, doctors could examine the ways in which their health and quality of life can improve. However, Dr. Studenski said that although good and useful, these tables are not always indicators of longevity. Some people in good health simply prefer to walk slower.
