The Fast Weight Loss Tips And Tricks

Fasting or crash diets are not healthy for your body. It may result in losing a couple of pounds, but you’ll gain them right back because 3-day diet fasting causes your body into losing water instead of fat. You can lose weight faster if you eat less, eat the right foods and use weight loss pills to boost your metabolism.

There is a way to fast weight loss but it won’t come from a pill. It will come from the foods you eat. Did you know you can actually lose weight fast by eating? However, eating the right fat burning foods is the key to quick weight loss. If you choose fast weight loss plans to help you lose weight be sure they are a plan your body can use. Not all diet plans are suitable for all bodies.  Weight-loss is one of the hardest things to do if you choose the wrong diet for your body type for faster weight-loss.

Eat right for your fast weight loss goals.

In order to lose weight, you have to burn calories. Sorry, but you can’t burn calories sitting in front of a TV or computer, even if you’re playing a game.  And mouse exercises don’t count for losing weight, quick or otherwise.You have to force your body into burning fat. That’s the only way to rapid weight loss. The way the body burns fat is by the metabolism. The liver and your metabolism are related and not just because they are in your body. When people say, “I don’t have a fast metabolism” they don’t know they can make it faster with some fast weight loss tips and tricks.

The Fast Weight Loss Tips and Tricks to Losing Weight in a Week

There is an easy way to kick start your metabolism into burning more fuel (fat).  You can feed it foods that enhance the metabolism and start doing more (than sitting in front of your computer).

Eat fat burning foods such as
  • Green tea
  • Coffee
  • Chilies
  • Oranges
  • Lemons
  • Mandarins
  • Mangoes
  • Garlic
  • Onions
  • Chicken
  • Salmon

Will make your metabolism work harder, hence, burn more fat. You can add marching in place, lifting your sugar bag ten times over your head, or using housekeeping to add more movement to your body.

Fast weight loss by being active.

Every type of movement will keep your metabolism working. If you can actually do a work out with weights, you can quicken weight loss. Working muscles burn more fat than sitting doing nothing.  The best part is it won’t make you bulgy with massive muscles; it will tone and tighten your body making it look like that beach body you want.


working out after work

How to Schedule Getting Fit Around Your Work Life

These days everyone is always in a rush. Whether it is rushing to pick the kids up from school or sprinting down the street because you’re late for work; we’re always rushing.

Now as important as the things we are hurrying around for are, they’re not more important than looking after your body (few things are!). Take me for example, I work 45 hours a week and when I get home I have all sorts of other commitments to deal with like cooking dinner, domestic chores having your mum over for tea etc.

However, I still find time to keep in shape because I know that working hard to provide for my future will be of little use if I’m not alive or in decent shape to take advantage of it.

Below is a relatively quick work out for those of you trying to pack on some muscle and improve your general fitness around your busy schedule; each workout should take no more than half an hour a night:(To make this work-out even quicker make sure everything is ready in advance to stop you having to set everything up or find clothes/equipment before you start)

Monday

Monday nights are normally not that hard for you to get motivated so I’ve put the most tedious exercises for these nights. Try to leave no more than a minute between sets in order to get full benefit of, and speed up, the whole workout.

  • 3x 15 push-ups
  • 3x 8 bicep curls
  • 3x 8 hammer curls
  • 3x 15 crunches
  • 3x 15 leg raises

Tuesday

20 – 30 minute jog around the block

Wednesday

As with Monday’s workout try to leave no more than a minute between sets in order to get full benefit of, and speed up, the whole workout. I have to admit that I find my Wednesday nights the hardest because I’m generally really busy that night but that’s because I’m lazy the actual workout doesn’t take up much of my time.

  • 3x 15 narrow push-ups
  • 3x 12 dumbbell fly
  • 3x 10 dumbbell press
  • 3x 20 dips
  • 3x 8 one arm tricep dip

Thursday

20 – 30 minute jog around the block

Friday

Once again try to leave no more than a minute between sets in order to get full benefit of, and speed up, the whole workout. Remember the quicker you do this work out the faster you’ll be able to go out with your friends!

  • 3x 15 squats
  • 3x 12 dumbbell shoulder press
  • 2x 15 standing leg curls
  • 2x 8 clock lunges

That work out will help you to get fit without taking up huge amounts of time or money. It is the perfect way to schedule getting fit around your busy life. Obviously how quickly you see results will depend on a lot of things like DNA and diet so be patient.

Tip: to ensure you maintain your commitment and motivation to the cause stick a picture of someone you want to be like, or be with, to the wall of the room where you work out; this will spur you on.

Fun Ways to Get Active – Pokemon Go for Weight Loss

Pokemon Go – most people have probably at least heard about (if they’re not already playing) the popular new smart phone game. For most people my age who were raised during the Pokemon craze of the 90’s and early 2000’s, Pokemon Go came as a highly anticipated addition to the Pokemon franchise.

In my mind though, this game has one big advantage over other Pokemon games (and even most smart phone games in general) – it’s focus on walking and moving around a city! There are a few people on the web who have mentioned this facet of the new game, but today I want to talk about how you can use Pokemon Go for weight loss, or even just as a fun way to keep active.

How Does it Work?

For those of you who haven’t yet played Pokemon Go, the game centers around using your phone’s GPS to track your position as you walk around searching for Pokemon to collect. As you progress in the game, you will be able to level up, evolve, and eventually battle your Pokemon against other trainers (the name for players in the game).

How can I use Pokemon Go for Weight Loss?

The whole game centers are having to walk around and explore in order to find new Pokemon! This means that if you want to really progress in the game, you need to go out and walk around. For me, I’ve found that the game has added just a little bit of incentive for me to go out of my way to walk places.

Aside from just exploring the city looking for Pokemon and visiting Pokestops to get new items, I also love the egg hatching part of the game. How this works is that you collect eggs at Pokestops. These eggs then have to be “incubated”, and you hatch them by walking a certain distance.

So far I have discovered three types of eggs based on how far you have to walk to hatch them – 2km, 5km, and 10km. The longer the distance it takes to hatch the egg, the rarer the Pokemon is supposed to be. When you first start the game you only have one incubator, which means you have to hatch one egg before you can start walking to hatch the next one. Later in the game though you might collect more incubators or buy them from the in game store.

Egg hatching is my favorite way to use the game to stay active, and if you are dedicated to hatching new Pokemon you can actually burn off quite a few calories! The people at omnicalculator.com even have a calculator that you can use to determine how many calories you can burn while walking to hatch your eggs. Check it out:

The Downsides

Okay, so overall I’ve been very pleased with the Pokemon Go app, but it is still a game and not a fitness app. One big downside that I also have with the game is that I wish it would track how far you walk each day. Right now you can only see the total distance you’ve walked since you started playing (in your trophies section).

The game also won’t tell you how fast you are walking. In addition, the game supports a more leisurely speed of walking, with sometimes frequent stops to catch Pokemon, so you won’t burn as many calories playing Pokemon Go compared to going on a normal hike or run.

Another downside is the fact that the game can be a major drain on your cell phone battery. If you are planning on playing the game for any length of time I recommend investing in a portable external battery pack like this one from Amazon.

The Bottom Line

Pokemon Go is a fun game, and if the other options are sitting in front of your computer or the TV playing games, I definitely recommend downloading Pokemon Go. It’s a fun way to get active, and I know that there have been a couple times when I chose to go out for a walk to go catch some Pokemon instead of staying inside on the couch.

That being said, it probably shouldn’t be your only form of physical activity. But it is a good way to add some variety and fun to your daily exercise regime. So why not head on out there and try to “catch ’em all”!

What do you think? Do you have any other games that you use to make exercise and staying active more fun?


Coffee diet

Coffee in the Diet – The Pros and Cons of a Cup a Day

This morning I woke up and, like most mornings, one of the first things I did was head into my kitchen and make myself a cup of coffee. I’d like to think I’m not reliant on my daily cup of joe, but while it is not a necessity that I drink a cup every morning, it is an enjoyable part of my morning experience.

Today as I sat down to enjoy my morning caffeine, I started to think about what exactly were the health benefits and risks of including coffee in the diet. Is my daily cup (or two) something that I should continue to enjoy without worry of what it is doing to my health, or is it an indulgence that I should try to stop?

What is coffee?

Before beginning a discussion on why you should include or remove coffee from your daily diet, let’s take a brief moment to discuss what is coffee. Most people (certainly coffee drinkers) will recognize a roasted coffee bean. This is the finished product though and in order to get to this recognizable state, coffee beans go through a couple steps.

Coffee cherries on the treeDespite the name, a coffee bean is actually the seed of the coffee fruit, which is sometimes called a cherry. These fruit grow on coffee trees. Coffee trees prefer to grow in areas with rich soil, mild temperatures and frequent rain. For this reason,most coffee trees are grown in an area of the world called the “Coffee Belt” which is located around the Equator.

Coffee fruit start as a flower on the tree. After flowering, it takes the plant almost a year (!) to mature into a fruit that is ready for harvest. After harvesting the fruit is picked (usually by hand), and then the beans are removed from the fruit and dried.

Then these green coffee beans are polished and sorted by weight and size before they are ready to be exported and roasted. During roasting the beans are heated until they reach an internal temperature of 400 degrees Fahrenheit. The beans are now ready to be ground, brewed and consumed. Yum!

The Health Benefits of Coffee

There are a multitude of studies around the internet that have looked into what exactly coffee does to the body. There are ones praising coffee and it’s many benefits to the body, and there are others warning of over consumption and the risks that coffee drinkers take everyday.

Here is my take-away on these studies. Keep in mind I am a coffee drinker, and so my views on this might be skewed because I don’t want to have to give up my morning habit.

Coffee Helps to Reduce the Risk of Some Diseases

One of the key benefits of drinking coffee is that moderate consumption of coffee may help to decrease the risk of developing some diseases. Recent research into coffee has shown that there seems to be links between coffee consumption and lowered risks of liver cancer, type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, and cardiovascular diseases.

Currently it is not known why coffee seems to help prevent some of these diseases. Some researchers and scientists believe it may be because of the caffeine content of coffee (although some studies show the same benefits from drinking decaffeinated coffee), others believe it is because of the high level of antioxidants in coffee, and others still think it may be due to some unknown quality of coffee that we have yet to discover.

Antioxidants

One of the reasons for coffee’s many health benefits is due to its high concentration of antioxidants. In fact, for most Americans coffee is the single largest source of antioxidants in the diet!

I’ve talked about antioxidants before when talking about the benefits of including beans in your diet. To review: antioxidants are substances that fight free radicals, which occur naturally in the body.

Having too many free radicals in the body though leads to increased risks of developing cardiovascular disease and cancer. Because coffee contains antioxidants, coffee can help prevent these diseases.

What about drinking coffee for weight loss?

Aside from the claims that coffee can help reduce the risk of certain diseases, I’ve also seen a lot of reports recently claiming that coffee can also aid in weight loss. The main support for this argument is the caffeine that is found in coffee.

Some research has shown that consuming caffeine can help to speed up metabolism and help to suppress appetite. As of now though, most research showing this correlation is preliminary and not consistent. In fact, some research even shows that using caffeine too often causes your body to build up a resistance to it, which means that if you want to get these weight loss benefits you need to practice drinking coffee for short periods of time and then abstaining (for example two weeks on, two weeks off).

Despite the possible benefits of caffeine on weight loss and weight maintenance, coffee consumption can be bad for the diet depending on the way you drink it. Regular black coffee for instance is a very low calorie drink that contains only 2 calories a cup and is therefore a great addition to your diet if you are watching your weight.

Unfortunately though, most people don’t drink their coffee black. Adding sugar and cream or milk to coffee can significantly increase the calories in your cup, and don’t even get me started on the fancy frappuchinos and other specialty drinks that some people consume. The added calories in these type of coffee drinks might actually cause someone to gain weight – yikes!

The takeaway – pros vs. cons

Overall, coffee can be included in a healthy diet, but as always one needs to practice moderation. So far there have been no studies that definitively link coffee to increased mortality rates or other negative consequences. In fact it has been shown that coffee decreases the risk of developing certain types of diseases!

Another thing to consider is that most of these benefits are found from drinking straight black coffee in moderation (up to 6 cups a day). Try to drink coffee black, but if you have to have sweeteners or milk, try to stick to fat free milk and try only a small amount of sugar or honey.

Also, pay attention to when you drink your coffee. Caffeine is a stimulant, so if you drink it too late in the day you might find yourself unable to get to sleep at night.

So, should you drink coffee?

Well ultimately this is up to you! What do you think? Do you think coffee can be a healthy part of the diet? Or do you think it should be removed? Let me know in the comments below!

5 Points To Choose The Perfect Weight Loss Plan For You

Thanks to a sedentary lifestyle and junk foods, there has been a considerable rise in obesity in the recent decade. Being overweight not only makes you look bad, but also is one of the main causes of various health problems which can lead to a heart attack or stroke. With thousands of tips on how to lose weight, it becomes hard to choose and follow the right one for you.

Also a better option to lose weight is going systematically and following tested plans to shed that extra weight. However choosing just any random plan does not guarantee weight loss and one must carefully analyze the type of weight loss plan before selecting one.

Losing weight with Phenq pilules is based on the fact that you need to spend more calories than you actually consume. Hence weight loss plans mainly concentrate on diet as well as exercise. You must consider the following points while selecting the perfect weight loss program for you.

  1. Does It Suit Your Food Habits?

Choose the weight loss plan which suits your food habits. For instance it is not feasible for an Italian to go for a weight loss program which is based on Chinese food. There are lots of advantages of choosing a weight loss program based on your staple food. Firstly, the ingredients will be easily available in your locality. Some weight loss plans may ask you to eat different exotic food items and you may have a hard time looking for the ingredients. Secondly there is a good chance that you know how to cook the food if it is based on your staple diet and hence will be easier to cook rather than going through cooking manuals and ending up with something which does not look remotely close to the one in the picture. And finally, your body will easily accept the diet which you regularly eat rather than something which is completely alien.

  1. Does The Exercise Suit You?

Some people are more fit as compared to others while there are some who have never done any physical work in their entire life. Hence it is a good idea to check out the exercise plan to check if it is easy or hard to perform. You can select the plan which will suit your level. Also consider the time which you will be able to devote to the exercises.

  1. How Quickly You Will Lose Weight?

Some weight loss plans take more time and some take less time to show signs of weight loss. Choose the one according to your requirements. Both plans which take long time or less time to show results have their own merits and demerits and you must consider them properly before going for the plan. Plans which take long time usually are efficient in preventing weight gain later on but can get quite boring or de-motivating because of lack of fast results. On the other hand, if you follow plans which help you lose weight quickly, there are more chances of gaining weight again once you quit but they do provide you good motivation to stick to the plan.

  1. What Is Your Past?

Have you been through weight loss plans before? If yes, you must carefully analyze what things went wrong in the plan which compelled you to lose the plan in the first place. For instance- If you didn’t have much time for the plans, then it is better to go for a plan which doesn’t require you to exercise for 1 hour or more every day.

  1. Any Allergies and Health Condition?

If you have a medical condition, (for instance diabetes or blood pressure) make sure that the food included in the diet don’t contain the ingredients which are prohibited for you. Also if you have allergy with some food items (for instance milk), make sure that there are no dairy products in the diet plan you are going to follow.
