I’ve been blogging and advocating about healthy balanced diet and some practical weight loss tips and that everyone should not expect to lose weight overnight. The process of losing weight the right way is not that easy yet it’s not that hard as you think it is. We just have to look into the right combination of diet and workout regimen whether it is high intensity or low intensity. And recently, there have been a bunch of weight loss camp coming out in order to deter boredom, as replacement in going to a routine workout in the gym.
We all know and statistics have shown that most of those who lost interest in continuing their workout are due to the lack of determination from the start. Repetitive regimen is another factor that might lead into discontinuing the whole program itself. And a fitness retreat to break that monotony might be the good solution and perhaps the only way to shed that excess flab in a healthy manner.
A weight loss retreat is what I’m talking about because the four walls of the gym could be a humdrum but being in nature and making changes in the environment should help you attain your desired weight and losing inches in your waist. But don’t forget that losing weight and getting rid of the unwanted fats is not just about training and food but also having a good rest is important as well. A relaxing environment will add to a restful sleep and in regaining your strength and endurance.
Nowadays, people are scrambling for any food supplement or health drink that thought to be healthy for weight loss. People are getting more health conscious lately, maybe because of the alarming trend that heart disease, diabetes and heart attack (like Jerry Lawler) are now affecting the younger generations, and most of them are overweight or obese.
And we all know that green tea offers some fat reducing and anti-oxidizing action on our body yet another promising supplement emerged in the market lately which is the green coffee bean extract. It claimed to contain more active polyphenols and chlorogenic acid. These components are known to help reduce free oxygen radicals in the body, it is also said to have an inhibitory effect on fat accumulation and body weight thus eventually preventing weight gain, a strong antioxidant and also slows down the release of glucose into the bloodstream after meals.
And I think the root of all this health concerns are most likely due to unbalanced diet, lack of exercise and lack of sleep that leads to the accumulation of excess body weight wherein our heart has to work harder to support the need of the added mass. And if your schedules would not permit you a gym time for physical activities, or to browse the grocery store of healthy stuff instead of fast foods then green coffee bean extract could be of help. But still the general rule persist, that in whatever supplement you take, always have it verified it first by your doctor.

The fast pace of modern lifestyle has affected the health of most people working in the metropolis right now. More work and less time to exercise. Oftentimes the reason for not exercising is that they don’t have the time to do it but I would say that it was just a shallow excuse. And it eventually only boils down in the determination to really do it. Although I must admit that the kind of work you have had also contributes greatly to the bulging waistline of many individuals and that also includes me.
My persistence in looking for solution on how to get rid of the extra flab on my waist has paid off when I stumble into the advert of The Flex Belt in one of the magazine that I bought a few months ago. Although I am still skeptical on this new contraption but it seems that this electronic muscle stimulator offers a promising result.
In fact, the FDA has approved this medical device for use as abdominal toning technology. It works by firming and strengthening your abdominal muscles and this could be a perfect solution for those who are too busy finding excuses not to workout.
It is undeniable that modern society really affects the health and lifestyle of many individuals. Especially those living and working in the metropolis where you can see a fast pace of life. The hectic schedule in meeting deadlines and work competition are adding more stress, resulting in the decline of fitness and health. And we are not talking yet of the foods that you eat. So adding that would eventually balloon the effect. In the long run this kind of lifestyle, sooner or later, will haunt you back with health issues and concerns that could cripple your body system little by little.
Oftentimes we hear people say that they don’t have the luxury of time to workout or exercise because of work yet they can spare some for leisure. So it could just be a shallow excuse and eventually boils down to one’s determination to improve their health status and lose that extra flab on the waistline before it will derail you from inside out.
Another factor that I see that contributes to the growing problem is the lack of flexibility in many health and wellness programs. Mostly they are providing a one size fits all approach or force potential customers to compromise instead of focusing on the client’s individual needs. And I found one who offers a specialized individual program that will help you improve your health and well being. And you can find more information and updates at Evolv Health Facebook page.
Yet, we must not forget that the road to achieving your health and wellness goals doesn’t end with just physical activity alone. It should be accompanied with proper and appropriate dietary program and changes in your dietary behavior. Although there are plenty of diet plans out there but what’s effective to others may not work well on you. And it is always effective if you have proper guidance from experts that is tailored just for you based on your dietary preference and lifestyle.
When you ask people about weight loss regimen you often hear them saying, don’t eat carbs, don’t eat fats, avoid egg yolks, no dairy products and the long list of “not to” goes on. Yet many experts believe that the way to eliminate those extra blubbers starts at your own kitchen and not in the gym. But you just have to eat the right foods and stop listening about these silly food myths and you won’t be trapped by these appalling dieting mistakes.
In fact, there’s nothing wrong about consuming carbohydrates and we all know that it provides our body the energy we need when you start working out those muscles and it also facilitate in the muscle building process. The trick is to choose the healthy carbohydrates that can be found from whole grains and this should be part of your daily diet. Always look on the labels when you buy foods yet on the other hand it is also alarming to hear about the growing concern of food label lies.
One article that I read said that a study published in the International Journal of Obesity found that those who ate a breakfast of eggs (yolk and all) lost 65 percent more weight with no effect on their cholesterol or triglycerides. I have also read that, eggs, despite being high in dietary cholesterol it in fact won’t raise your cholesterol. And experts believe that people who ate three servings of dairy foods were 60 percent less likely to be overweight than people who consumed less.
Nonetheless and whatever they may be, remember the basic rule that everything should be eaten in moderation.
