Holiday Weight Loss Tips

Hey guys!

Nothing seems to be more popular during the Holidays than SWEETS.

No doubt about that. But the thing that you MUST do during the holidays is AVOID refined sugar.

Why is is not that good for you?


It causes an insulin response and moves your body into a FAT STORING mode – for the next 24 – 48 hours!

Either you are Storing Fat or Stoking the Fire to burn it.

Refined Sugar simply puts the fire out, and stores the fat ON YOU.

Resist the temptation. Dump refined sugar and you will be glad you did during the holidays.

Why Do People Gain More Weight During the Holidays than Any Other Time of Year?

You may be wondering why it is that people gain more weight during the winter holidays than any other time of year. A study was done in
the early 2000’s by the National Institutes of Health that determined
just that. They determined the following things about Americans:

  • The average American gained 1.8 lbs from Thanksgiving to New Year’s Day.
  • Overweight and obese Americans before the holidays were more likely to gain 5 lbs. or more during that 6 week period.
  • The biggest two factors in weight gain were lack of activity and excess hunger.
  • The weight that is gained at that time of year is never lost .

The excess hunger at this time of year is most likely due to the excess amount of refined sugar and carbohydrates that people consume throughout the season. The more of them you eat, the more hungry you will be every few hours. These foods immediately spike insulin – the fat-storing hormone that will keep them out of fat-burning mode for up to 48 hours. These substances also causes individuals to feel lethargic which could explain why many are less active, lounging, relaxing, and overeating the holidays away.

So for each time that an individual consumes refined sugar and carbs, they will spend the next 24-48 hours in FAT-STORING mode. Doesn’t it make sense then that daily consumption of sugar and carbs will result in some people actually spending every single day of the holiday season in FAT-STORING mode as opposed to FAT-BURNING. Ouch!

Worse than gaining all that weight is the fact that this study revealed that the weight that is gained at that time of year is never lost so there is an accumulation of excess weight put on every year over the course of Americans’ lifetimes that could lead to obesity due to that lack of weight loss after the holidays.

Think about it – where will you be 10 years from now if you gain 5 lbs. every Christmas? You’ll be 50 lbs. heavier. Isn’t it time to pay attention, do a little proactive weight gain prevention during the season and give yourself the gift of good health this year?

Tune in – we’ll be sharing simple Holiday Weight Loss tips all season long to help you to enter into the New Year feeling fit, trim, lean, energized, and most importantly – in a position of Power over FAT!

God bless and Happy Holidays!

The Secrets to Finding the Most Effective Weight Loss Program for You

iStock 000004648834XSmall The Secrets to Finding the Most Effective Weight Loss Program for You

Secrets to Weight Loss, Burning Fat and Results that Last

Are you desiring to lose weight like I was just a few months ago?  If you are, we need to talk. You may be interested in joining a proven weight loss program with the right mix of education, supplements, and support.  When it comes to joining an effective weight loss program, you will find there are a number of different options – some good – many bad as I found out.

If this is your first time enrolling into a weight loss program, you may not be sure or even know as to what you should look for in a weight loss program.  If that is the case, HOLD ON–you will want to continue reading what I found out.

One of the greatest ways for finding the perfect weight loss program is to ask a number of important questions and you answer them.  One of the first questions that you should ask yourself is how much time you have to devote to this weight loss program which may require some time and education.

If you were to join a local weight loss support system, whether it is in a brick and mortar building or a support group who are doing it on their own, you would likely be required to attend either an online webinar or a weekly get together.  Whether you are busy with your family or at work, you may not have the additional time that is required to do so.  In that case, you should consider joining an online weight loss program with support, as many are often designed for those professionals and moms with busy and hectic schedules.

Another question that you will want to consider when looking to find the perfect weight loss program is your sheer willpower to make it happen.  If you decide that you should join an online program, you will be gaining more freedom, to physically report to meetings is nit a requirement and answer to group leaders that you do not know.

While this freedom is cool and great to have, there is a downside. The freedom that you enjoy to not attend weekly meetings has allowed many hopeful people that are looking to lose weight to get off track with their program.  If you do not believe that you can stay with your online program goals and required instructions for weight loss, you may want to consider an alternative. Trust me on this one.

Another one of the many possible questions that you may want to ask when looking for a good weight loss program, is how much money is it going to cost you. This one is a biggie. While you can find free weight loss programs everywhere, both locally or online, it is actually when you get down to it, quite rare.  In your search, you will find that they have a wide range of membership fees that are included.  You probably will find that online programs are cheaper than locally operated weight loss programs or support systems.  If you are on a tight monthly budget, the cost of each program you run across should play a big role in making that decision.

You should also ask yourself this question: Are you honestly embarrassed with your current weight today? And or you not feeling that good about your physical appearance? Although you really should  not have anything to be ashamed of, you may still feel that way.  If that is true, you may be a little hesitant of attending local weight loss meetings.  As always, you need to remember that everyone else that is attending those meetings are probably likely feeling the exact same way, but you don’t have to be in any kind of awkward situation.  If you are not happy with your appearance– as I was not, or may be concerned about what others may be thinking  of you, you may want to really consider joining an online weight loss program instead that has a great program and product to help accelerate the fat burning.

Online Weight Loss Programs: Are They Worth the Bucks?

iStock 000010725355XSmall Online Weight Loss Programs:  Are They Worth the Bucks?

Online Weight Loss Programs - The Lies, The Hype, The TRUTH

This is really a pet peeve with me. There are many programs out there that are simply scams and do not work. If you are looking at this, you need to be careful and so your due diligence.

Have you ever considered an online weight loss program before or even looked at one? Online programs are designed to help people, possibly just like you and me, who want to lose weight and lose it bad. I have been there and you may be there now.  What is cool about online lose weight programs is that they are online and you can do I from the comfort of your own home and at your convenience, You gotta admit that is nice for those who have busy and hectic schedules with kids, family, church, school and; crazy schedules that may not allow them to be a part of locally operated programs.

If you have never joined an online program before for weight loss, you may be wondering if there is even a right one right for you.  You may have looked at many of them and fund nothing that made any sense. That happens a lot. You may even be wondering if an online program is worth putting any money into it.  I have some friends that have tried them, and In all honestly, it is  typical that online weight loss programs are worth every dime, but, to be real here– it all depends.  To make sure that your money is not wasted you will want to make sure that you choose the online program that suites you, fits your needs and goals, is perfect for you and your lifestyle.

When looking at an online weight loss program, you will want to take a serious look at the features and bells and whistles that you will have access to and be a part of. Features are usually known as some kind of membership benefits for joining or membership rewards that come with it.  There are many different types of rewards online with these kind of sites. And they all have program features that you have access to that plays a large part in determining whether or not the online weight loss program that you want to join is worth the money. A few of the many online weight loss features or member perks that you will want access to are outlined below.

One of the many features or membership benefits that would make an online weight loss program well worth the cost is that of healthy eating tips. As you likely already know, healthy eating is an important part of any weight loss plan.  Many online weight loss programs have healthy eating sections that include easy to make recipes for foods and drinks, as well as shopping tips and much more.  As previously stated, healthy eating is an important part of losing weight; therefore, you should look for an online weight loss program that does have a healthy eating or a healthy foods section.

Another feature that would make an online weight loss program more than worth the costs is that of an exercise program.  It has been said that exercise and healthy eating are the two most important components of losing weight.  You should be able to find an online weight loss program that has an exercise section for you to access.  This section may outline workouts that you should try, which may be accompanied by pictures, videos, or at least detailed directions. You may also find charts that outline how many calories are burned with common exercises, and much more.

One feature that you may not necessarily think of, but one that is important, is that of an online message boards or a community section.  Community sections are often comprised of online message boards. These sections often allow you to communicate with other online weight loss program members or group leaders.  This communication is nice as it may help to give you motivation.  You may even find an online weight loss buddy or partner to help you on your journey.

Guaranteed results or free trial periods are another sign that an online weight loss program may be worth the money. Often times, many individuals are unsure as to whether or not they should pay to join an online weight loss program, as they do not know for sure that they will lose weight. A large number of online weight loss programs give you the ability to test out their programs free of charge and then there are others that give you guaranteed results.  With guarantees like these, online weight loss programs are more then worth their costs.

The above mentioned points are just a few of the many that may be able to help you decide whether or not joining an online weight loss program is worth the cost. If you are able to find an online weight loss program with a free trial period or even just one with affordable membership rates, you may want to think about giving it a shot.

Is Weight Loss Surgery Your Best Option?

iStock 000007819101XSmall Is Weight Loss Surgery Your Best Option?

Is Weight Loss Surgery A Safe and Reasonable Option?

Are you looking to look better and feel better? Are you looking to slim down and thus feel better about your appearance?  If that is the case, there is a good possibility that you have heard of the idea of weight loss surgery before. Weight loss surgery is how some people end up losing weight.  Although surgery, in many cases, has helped thousands of Americans lose weight, improve their appearance, and improve their health, in my opinion, it is a radical procedure. And with it’s know side effect, weight loss surgery may not be for you as it does carry questionable risk.

When it is time to consider if surgery is right for you, and that is what you actually want to look into, there are a number of factors that you will need to think about, and look into as again, it can be risky. One of the biggest factors is a no brainer–your current weight.  Most of the time but there are exceptions, you will discover that surgeons who specialize in weight loss require their patients to be at a minimum overweight. The average doctor requires that you be at least eighty pounds overweight.  If you are not as overweight as the physician need you to be, (which may not be a bad thing) you may not even be eligible to undergo a surgery which many times creates it’s own set of possible challenges.  If that is the case, and you are not eligible, you should keep in mind that there are many more different kinds of weight loss options you may not know about and  that you can consider.

Speaking of weight loss options, have you taken the time and already tried any other approaches?  Many people are able to successfully lose weight with simple lifestyle changes like healthy eating, consistent exercise, and weight loss products, like diet pills which I believe can help accelerate dramatically the weight loss and at burning as that is part of how I lost weight so quickly.  While there are some folks who jump into the weight loss surgery pool right away, there are others who only use it as a very last resort. And only as a last resort.

Although weight loss surgery, much like gastric bypass surgery or known also as lap-band surgery, is more than worth it in many cases, it can be very expensive and drain your funds. And the option is you may be able to lose your excess pounds without having to spend a big amount of money doing so.

Another thing that should be considered, when deciding if surgery is right for you, is your personal health.  If you are truly overweight, have you been noticing any other health problems or has your doctor outlined the importance of losing weight for the impact for your health?  If this has happened, you may not have much of a choice when it comes to undergoing surgery. For some folks, such as Al Roaker, weight loss surgery is, literally, lifesaving.

As I said before, two popular weight loss surgeries today include gastric bypass surgery and lap-band surgery. These are the ones that most people choose. While there additional weight loss surgeries available, these two are the one that most people seem to choose  The surgery that you feel most comfortable with is also important when considering whether or not weight loss surgery is really for you For example gastric bypass surgery is about the stapling of your stomach, whereas lap-band surgery uses an adjustable or even removable band. When deciding which surgery makes the most sense for you, your decision will need to be made with the help of a healthcare professional.

When examining any type of weight loss surgery, you will find that most surgeries all have one thing in common: they reduce the stomach pouch size and make it much smaller. Because of that, your ability to follow all directions given to you is very important.  This is not a weight loss class- this is surgery. After undergoing a the surgery, like lap-band or gastric bypass, your physician will likely suggest  that you put together for yourself an exercise blueprint and plan, as well as eat healthy foods and change your lifestyle as well.

It is critical that you follow all advice given to you by your doctor. With any and all weight loss surgeries that involve reducing the stomach pouch, an over consumption of food can be harmful to your weight loss, as well as could possible be dangerous to your health.

Make sure you get ALL the facts and then make your decision accordingly and do NOT rush into it. Consider what is best for you, and then see your doctor to help you make that weight loss decision.

Super Fast Weight Loss Tips You Can Use

iStock 000007911328XSmall Super Fast Weight Loss Tips You Can Use

Healthy Daily Choices Will Help Accelerate Your Weight Loss Results!

Are you interested in losing some weight or some extra pounds?   If you are, are you in a real hurry to do so? Do you need to drop a dress size in a week? While experts agree that you should  not rely totally on fast weight loss, also commonly known as rapid weight loss, there are many people who do.  If you are interested in losing some weight, and doing it as quickly as possible, you will want to continue reading this post.

One of the best ways that you can go about creating a fast weight loss or rapid weight loss for yourself is by reducing the foods that you eat on a daily basis. When reducing your food consumption, it is important that you only reduce your consumption at a slow pace. Unfortunately, many people who want to obtain quick weight loss believe that they need to stop eating period, even if it is for two or three days. They go on a form of a “weight loss fast.” That is something that you do NOT want to do.  Once you start eating food again, you will likely gain every bit of your weight back, it seems it is almost automatic. It is also critical to say that starving yourself is not the greatest thing for your health either.

To go along with reducing what you are eating, it is advised that you dramatically reduce sweets or junk food that you have been eating. For rapid weight loss, you will want to completely get rid of an and all junk food from your diet, even if it is only for a short duration of time. This means that if you are hungry for a snack, you should reach for an apple instead of a chocolate candy bar or a big bag of potato chips. Apples are sweet and have sugar, yet they’re high in fiber so the sugar enters your blood stream much more slowly than chips and candy will which will help to keep your fat burning hormones active while keeping your fat burning hormones suppressed. Sugars from candy and junk food on the other hand will activate your fat storing hormones. So if you want to burn vs. store fat, cut out the sweets and treats! With any kind of sugar candy and other sweets containing a high amount of calories, you could see a good size drop in your calorie consumption, by eliminating them totally from what you eat daily.

Being active and exercising is another great way that you can start achieving quick and effective weight loss. But understand this BIG Deception: exercise does not burn fat, exercise simply triggers your fat-burning hormones to burn fat 24 to 48 hours after the exercise, assuming you do not mess up your exercise benefits with wrong food choices that cause you to store fat! The challenge is, using exercise to achieve fast weight loss can be a little bit tricky. With active exercise, you may not see or experience a significant loss of weight right away.  For example, it typically takes most people at least a week or two to start seeing any kind of improvement in their appearance with exercise. With that in mind, the heavier you are, the sooner you may see a drop in your body weight, often quickly.

In keeping with an exercise program to lose weight, exercise is highly beneficial to losing weight, as it helps to limit your caloric count.  When you are burning off calories, with the use of exercise, your body is absorbing less calories as a whole. This is what makes it possible for you to start dropping weight and dress sizes and pants sizes.  Although your initial thought may be to engage some exercise, as much as possible and right away, you may want to think twice before doing so.  If you are not normally physically active, it is best to start out at a slower pace.  This should greatly reduce the risk of any injury to you.

Another great way that you may be able to achieve rapid weight loss or rapid weight loss is with the use of a what is called a “cleanse.”.  These types of cleanses are often referred to as colon cleanses or weight loss cleanses.  Cleanses work by helping to remove toxins and any additional weight, actually waste, from your body.  It has been stated that most people have at least seven or eight pounds of unwanted waste material stored somewhere in their bodies.  An approved weight loss cleanse program should help catalyze the removal of those toxins from your body.

Should you make a decision to try a colon cleanse program or a weight loss cleanse program, to help you catalyze a fast weight loss, it is important that you first check with a medical professional, and follow the directions given to you. Some cleanses have a very strict diet that they require you to follow. For the most rapid weight loss, you may want to consider liquid cleanses, instead of those that only come in detox pills, as they often produce the quickest and greatest results.

These quick weight loss tips may assist you in achieving some fast weight loss, even if it is only a small weight loss. But understand, , it is important to proceed with caution. While it is very possible for you to achieve your rapid weight loss goal, it can also be negative to you and your health over the long run if continued over a long period of time. Consult a physician before any type of action is taken over a period of time.
