Is Your Weight Loss Diet Sustainable?

Popular diet plans for vibrant health   Okay, you’ve made the decision to lose some weight, maybe a little, maybe a lot.  If you’re typical, you’ve dieted before.  At any given time, nearly 50% of American women and 25% of American men are on a diet.

A survey of 4,000 women by the Society for Women’s Health Research found that, on average, women go on two diets a year with each diet lasting about five weeks.  This means that by the time she’s 70 years old, the typical woman has been on 104 diets and spent a total of 10 years counting calories.  41% of the women surveyed said they felt they were constantly on a diet.

One-fourth of the women in the survey admitted that despite their efforts to lose weight, they didn’t lose anything at all.  The average woman has failed at 10 diets in her lifetime.

There are so many different diets out there that it’s difficult to determine which one is the best for you.

Advertisements on television feature claims to melt the fat off and show before and after pictures of men and women who have been successful.  They all look miserable and desperate in their “before” picture and bubbly and cheerful in their “after” picture.

Burn Fat By Using A Treadmill Described

Treadmills are by far one of the best ways to burn fat.  Treadmills have become such a main stream item in the fitness industry that you can find them at any gym, hotels, resorts, and in most people’s homes.

If a treadmill is used properly it can be one of the most effective means of burning body fat, along with having the ability to give you a great workout.  The increase in technology has made treadmills so advanced that you can vary speed, incline and resistance .

By integrating High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) with a treadmill you will increase your body’s ability to release a natural and healthy fat burning hormone called Human Growth Hormone (HGH).

When we are young, our bodies produced large amounts of this hormone.  As we get older our bodies quit producing as much hormone and start to slow down our metabolism.  These are the two main factors for gaining weight in our older years.

Below I’ve given some examples of how you can incorporate HIIT with your treadmill.

A very simple HIIT workout:

1. You will want to warm up on the treadmill for about 5 minutes.  This can be done at a slow to moderate pace (about 3.5 or 4.0 on most treadmills).
2. Once you have completed your warm up, you will want to increase the speed to a jogging pace for at least one minutes (about 7 or 8 on most treadmills).
3. After the one minute, you will want to slow down to a moderate speed for another minute.
4. Then again speed up for another minute, but this time increase your speed slightly.  Continue reading Burn Fat By Using A Treadmill Described

I wish they’d publish the name and telephone numbers of these people so that I could check up on them a couple of years later!  Maybe I’d ask them to send me a picture.  I suspect they’d be looking more like their “before” picture than their “after” picture.  Odds are that they’re already searching for a different diet to try.

In an effort to help Americans weed through what seems like an endless array of weight-loss plan options, the magazine U.S. News & World Report recently published the results of their six month study on the best diets.   Continue reading Which Diet Is Best For You?

Burning Off Fat, Faster – The Correlation Between The Psychological And The Physical

Lose Fat for Vibrant HealthSince time immemorable, the proper technique for fast weight loss has always been an important issue with people who have to lose some unwanted fats. There are a number of ways this can be done, but basically there’s two approaches to this. First is the “crash-burn” method and next is the ‘speedy burn’ technique.

The first method would seem to many as a logical technique to achieve fat burning immediately. You exercise heavily to burn off the fats then you greatly lessen your food intake so even less fats would get into the body. Sounds reasonable enough. However, you also need to consider what they call as the mind-body connection in psychology.

Oprah Says “I’m Never Dieting Again”.

YoyoThe topic of a recent episode of the Oprah Winfrey Show was dieting.  Oprah is well known for her infamous yo-yo dieting issues, consistently gaining and losing weight for years.

This is a problem shared by many Americans.  25% of American men and 45% of American women are on a diet on any given day.  Their weight goes up and down like a yo-yo as they go on and off different diets.  When they stop eating to go on a crash diet, they shed both fat and lean muscle as they “starve” themselves into shape.  Then as they relax their diet and fall back into old habits their weight increases.  Before they know it, they’ve gained back all the weight they lost and added on more.

According to statistics ninety-five percent of all dieters will regain their lost weight in 1-5 years.  Continue reading Oprah Says “I’m Never Dieting Again”.

The Real Truth About Interval Training And How It Can Help You

You are committing a tragedy against time if you are wasting it with cardiovascular routines. There’s a good path to a healthy, lean body that doesn’t include cardio at all. Of course, you won’t be able to go as slow and easy. It’s a dishonour that so many people at the gym spend most of their time doing aerobic workouts since they’re not getting the results they want. The real way to get rid of all that blubber you’re dealing with is to workout in interval training.

Intervals are nothing less than intense periods of exercise alternating with easier recovery periods. Research has shown intervals are a more  final result ive at fat burning than any other approach to exercise.  The high intensity component of an interval is going to last between one and two minutes. Once you complete that part, you recover at an easier rate for about a minute and a half.

You’d think that people doing cardio would lose fat. After all, exercise is exercise no matter how slow it is. So it sounds really nice, but the problem is that in practice it doesn’t help at all with losing fat. It’s amazing how that people who do cardiovascular exercises every day for hours every week and they still have stomach fat to spare. A Brit study took a sample of thirty five heavyweights who weren’t working out at all.  Continue reading The Real Truth About Interval Training And How It Can Help You
