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?

Alcohol And Exercise

alcohol and exerciseAt the end of the work week, you’re probably thinking about hitting the bar with a couple of buddies to wind down .  Even though you  may think you deserve to go out and have a few drinks, there are some things that you should certainly keep in mind.

Like any other day, tomorrow is going to be a day for exercise for fat loss, and since you are exercising on a regular basis, a few drinks of alcohol won’t really hurt anything, right?  Before you decide to rush out to the local bar, there are a few things below that you should think about before you make your choice about going out to drink some alcohol.

Research has proven that even small amounts of alcohol will increase muscular endurance and the output of strength, although these types of benefits are very short lived.  After 20 minutes or so, the problems will begin to surface.  All of the negative side effects attached to alcohol will easily outweigh any possible benefits that it can have. 

No matter how you look at it, alcohol is a poison that can really harm your body if you aren’t careful.

Consuming alcohol negatively affects your body’s strength, endurance, aerobic capacity and even muscle growth .  Alcohol will also have an effect on your nervous system and brain.  If you use it long term, you can cause severe deterioration of your central nervous system.   Even with short term use, nerve muscle interaction can be reduced which will result in a loss of strength.  Continue reading Alcohol And Exercise

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.

Experts in this field say that the body has sensors and indicators that can detect and recognize when the body is under attack or in distress.
