Simple Holiday Diet And Weight Loss Ideas

Diet and Nutrition

The coming holidays can be a challenge for anyone engaged in a weight loss or diet regimen and with very good reason.

  1. With all of the treats that seem to lurk around every corner, workplace get-togethers and holiday parties; it can be easy for even the most driven dieters to get sidetracked and lose sight of their weight loss goals.
  2. This year though you can do things a bit differently. Giving your choices and portions a little carefully targeted attention you can steer clear of ruining all the hard work you have put into your eating habits the rest of the year.

One of the biggest challenges for many those on a diet during the holiday season…

  • Is avoiding the hectic round of get-togethers and parties that almost always come hand in hand with the holidays.
  • The good news about such events; however, is that many of them tend to be buffet and pot-luck types of affairs; which gives you numerous options that can help you to stick to your diet plans.
  • While buffet tables are typically laden with heavy casseroles and fatty appetizers, you can usually find at least one platter of fresh vegetables served with a nice low-fat dip.
  • Also, opt for fresh fruits instead of the abundance of baked desserts that are typically offered.
  • Instead of stocking your plate up with diet dangerous foods, choose steamed vegetables and healthy grains such as wild rice and wheat bread.
  • Opting for white meat instead of dark meat can also help you to stay on the straight and narrow, by avoiding additional calories.

When possible, restrict the amount of alcohol based beverages that you take in. Just a few alcoholic beverages contain a shocking amount of calories; not to mention the fact that they only serve to boost the appetite of most people. Choose plain water, an alcohol free beer or a wine spritzer or Pelligrino water instead.

When your turn comes to prepare the abundance of necessary holiday food, remember that there are various tricks you can employ in order to stay true to your diet goals and continue to keep family and friends pleased at the same time.

One way to do this is by substituting dairy free or evaporated skim milk for regular milk or cream in your holiday recipes. This will help to tremendously cut down on the amount of fat and calories included in your dishes without compromising taste.

IUnsweetened applesauce with cinnamon makes a great alternative for calorie laden oil while egg substitute can easily replace the necessity for eggs in most tasty recipes without any recognizable change to the flavor.

Ultimately, one of the greatest ways that you can steer clear of overindulging this holiday season is to take it slower and simple. Bear in mind that the whole point of this time of the year is to get together with close friends and loved ones; many of which you might not see for many months to come.

Focus on the fun and conversation instead of hurrying through a hefty meal and you will find that not only did you enjoy this year more, but that you made it through with your diet in one piece.

17 Weight Loss Tips- Simply Check Your Thyroid

10 Secrets About Your Metabolism That Can Help...
10 Secrets About Your Metabolism That Can Help You Lose Weight! – Avoid Late Night Eating (Photo credit: UrbaneWomenMag)

 

 

A  Healthy Thyroid Equals Balanced Weight loss

 

  1. Your thyroid dictates much of your metabolism, any malfunction or disease afflicting this area may cause you to have problems in metabolism leading to a drastic problem with your weight so you may either gain weight, lose weight, or may find that losing weight is harder than usual.
  2. Those that plan diets do not consider how their thyroid plus metabolism may affect their weight loss program. Most experts and even the media pitch in and recommend that the best way to lose weight is to cut down calorie intake.
  3. Those with a condition called hyperthyroidism suffer from an overactive thyroid leading to one having his or her metabolism skyrocket. If this is the case, then you will probably lose weight fast. This is a nice proposition for some who wish to lose weight. However, this is actually hazardous to the health.
  4. Aside from the medical difficulties such a disease brings, one will also notice weight problems as a result. These people have trouble keeping on weight and may notice weakness and bulging of the eyes. This disease may need special treatment from doctors.
  5. Hypothyroidism on the other hand works in the other direction by immediately slowing down the metabolism until the body gains weight at a regular rate. Like hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism causes a general weakness in the body. It too may need special treatment and may cause serious health problems if left unattended.
  6. While cutting calories can be a challenge for most people to imagine, people involved in life and death struggles head to the supermarket to make serious decisions on whether to buy that extra box of sweets, or other foods they know aren’t quite healthy for them. Then some others have exactly the opposite problem.
  7. Instead of eating too many calories which is a problem in itself, they eat too little calories instead. The key is to find the midpoint. Balance.
  8. Problem? What Problem? The problem with some is that they believe that since the experts say that they have to cut calories, cutting calories to an inordinate amount will reap greater results. Unfortunately, it does not work that way. While cutting calories helps diets, consuming too little calories pushed the body into a hoard mode, the body’s metabolism slow to adapt to the lesser amount of available energy.
  9. If your body enters this mode, your body will work at such slow metabolism that losing weight becomes impossible. The technique here is to cut calories without the body slowing its metabolism. Only then can losing weight become easier.
  10. Another problem that can arise from decreased metabolism is that when your metabolism slows due to a drastic reduction in metabolism, and then you suddenly eat a good, hearty, calorie-filled meal, you are bound to gain more weight owing to the increased surplus of energy.
  11. This is why an imbalanced meal is highly discouraged among those that seek to lose weight. The sudden loss and increase of calories will cause an imbalance in a person’s energy consumption directly affecting fat deposit.
  12. Here is a simple computation to help you get to the right amount of calories you will need per day so that you get your nutrients in the right balance.
  13. First of all, multiply your weight in kilograms by 30. If you only know your weight in pounds, divide it by 2.2 to get to its English equivalent. We divide this number by 30 because that is the number of calories you need to support your weight per pound of weight.
  14. For example if your weight in pounds is 150, divide it by 2.2. That will give you a figure of 68.18. This is your weight in kilograms. Multiply this by 30 and you will arrive at the amount of calories you will need per day to keep up 150 lbs.
  15. You may consult a nutritionist to help you come lose weight. In the end it all comes down to math. If you consume more that your body needs, it stores it as fat. Now is probably a good time to start studying the back of those grocery cartons.
  16. Try to keep your diet at a 40% protein, 25% fat, and 35% carbohydrate meals at 300 calories per meal. Spread out these meals in a day for best results.
  17. While it can be simple computation to get at numbers, do not forget the earlier mentioned fact that the body adapts to its condition. Expose it to extreme ones and you may find yourself getting results you never wanted. Consult a nutritionist for more advice.

 

Form Healthy Blood Cells With 12 B Vitamin

Vitamin Line-Up

The brilliance of 12 B Vitamin uncovered!

12 b vitamin is one particular b vitamin that is known to be essential to maintaining a significantly healthy and balanced body. Usually known as Cobalamin, the 12b vitamin is necessary for the processes to convert carbohydrates, fats and proteins from food directly into energy. 12 b also, more notably, will help continue to keep the red blood cells wholesome and consequently avert heart disease as well as keeping the immune system functioning at its optimum level. In accessory, 12 b is utilized to generate the safeguarding of all neurological cellular material in the human body.

"WANNA KEEP 'EM HEALTHY^ OVERCOOKING DEST...
“WANNA KEEP ‘EM HEALTHY^ OVERCOOKING DESTROYS VITAMINS”^ – NARA – 516013 (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
  1. The most significant functionality of 12 b is to create and support healthful red blood cells.
  2. Nevertheless, all cells need to have 12 b to keep them healthy.
  3. It is the white blood cells, amidst others, that require 12 b to help make certain that the immune system stays functioning appropriately.
  4. All of the nerve cells in the body also need 12 b to form their protective fatty layer.
  5. This is essential for all of the nerves but is particularly so for those in the human brain.
  6. Reason being, If there is not adequate 12 b to develop this protective layer then the brain will not function adequately.

 

Remarkably, the volume of 12 b that the body requires is comparatively small but is needed on a regular basis. However, 12 b on its own is not enough as the body cannot absorb it easily. To help the body absorb 12 b the stomach produces intrinsic factor which enables more of the 12 b to be absorbed. 12 b is only found in animal foods such as liver, eggs, fish and meat but most people consume far more than their recommended daily amount of 12 b. This is not a problem as the body can only process about half of the 12 b that is consumed. It is also worth noting that the body can recycle the 12 b which cuts down on the impact of a 12 b deficiency. However, rigid vegetarians or vegans are likely to require 12 b supplements if they do not consume any animal products that include 12 b.

One last thing, If the entire body does not have plenty of 12 b then anaemia is the most noticeable warning sign. Naturally, this is simply because of the fact that there is not ample 12 b to make healthy and balanced red blood cells. Anaemia can also be triggered by the body not creating enough intrinsic factor to help absorb the 12 b that is available in the food eaten. The body’s need for certain vitamins is likely to be a significantly less important issue especially once a man or woman gets to 50 and this will lead to less 12 b being absorbed and supplements of 12 b may be necessary. Kids are also at risk from anaemia because they may not eat the food items that contain 12 b. Pregnant women need more 12 b because the little one is absorbing 12 b during the pregnancy to grow adequately.

Weight Loss Exercise Just Makes Sense

A lot of us live our lives like we are bound by something unseen. Yes, still humans are built to move, too often many put themselves on activity restriction. We have bodies designed and quite able to  race across the savannas, but some live a lifestyle made up of: dragging along from the bed to the breakfast table; to the car seat; to the office chair; to the restaurant chair; to the living room couch and finally back to the bed.

 

It was not always this way. Not long ago in the United States, a man who worked on a farm did the equivalent of 15 miles of jogging every day; and his wife did the equivalent of 7 miles of jogging.

 

Today, our daily obligations of work and home keep us tied to our chairs, and if we want exercise, we have to desperately make time for it.

 

The fact is, health experts insist that the worldwide obesity situation is probably caused as much by lack of physical activity as by eating too much. Hence, it is important that people get revved up to move around.

 

However, that does not mean that a lap or two around the old high school track will offset a daily load of donuts. Exercise alone is not very efficient, experts say. They contend that if you just exercise and do not change your diet, you may be able to prevent weight gain or even lose a few pounds for only  a little while then the weight may just slide back on.

 

Nevertheless, it is not something that you are likely to sustain unless exercise is part of an overall program. The more regularly you exercise, the easier it is to maintain your weight. Here is what to do every day to make sure that you get the exercise you need.

 

1. Get quality rest preferably at night.

 

Make sure that you get adequate sleep. Good sleep habits are conducive to exercise, experts point out. If you feel worn out during the day, you are less likely to get much physical activity during the day.

 

In addition, there is evidence that people who are tired tend to eat more, using food as a substance for the rest they need.

 

2. Take A Walk

 

It is probably the easiest exercise program of all. In fact, it may be all you ever have to do, according to some professional advices of some health experts.

 

Gradually build up to at least 30 minutes of brisk walking five times a week. Brisk walks themselves have health and psychological benefits that are well worth the while.

 

3. Walk On A treadmill

 

When the weather is bad, you might not feel like going outdoors. But if you have a treadmill in the television room, you can catch up on your favorite shows while you are doing your daily good turn for your weight-maintenance plan.

 

Most of us watch television anyway, and indoor exercise equipment enables anyone to turn a sedentary activity into a healthy walk.

 

4. Go For It Today

 

Excuses aside, lack of time is certainly a limiting factor in most lifestyles. That is why health experts suggest a basic guideline for incorporating exercise into your schedule. If you needed another reason to get started, there are many.

 

Get as much exercise as you can that feels good without letting it interfere with your work or family life. If you need to, remind yourself that you are preventing many health problems when you prevent weight gain; and keeping your health in a manageable place is a gift to your family as well as yourself. Live lighter, live longer.

 

The Appropriation cycle (12pm-8pm ). This is when we should eat the majority of our heavy concentrated foods.

Now your body has the energy required to preformed the vital functions concerning the food you eat. INGEST (EAT)  – DIGEST (BREAK DOWN). This is when we should eat the majority of our HEAVY CONCENTRATED FOODS.

Lunch and dinner fall into this cycle.

This is the time when the body is most efficient at digesting and dealing with foods. It’s also the time when we are burning them up the fastest because we’re at our most active. As long as we are eating according the dictates of our appetite, we should be merrily refuelling and burning, refuelling and burning in a fairly steady and comfortable way, which makes for a really comfortable feeling in the body.Eating when one is truly hungry can take a bit of getting used to, but is far more enjoyable than eating just because the clock dictates it’s lunchtime. And it makes so much sense! 

Lunch is the best convenient to have starch meals at lunch as opposed to protein, Do so – Do not make this difficult.

Just make sure you plan your meals using the BASIC PRINCIPLES OF COMBING HEAVIER CONCENTRATED FOOD (protein or starch) with lighter foods, vegetable and /or salad).

Here are the food combining basics:

  • Starches + Veggies = OK
  • Proteins + Veggies = OK
  • Proteins + Starches = No No
  • Plant Proteins + Plant Proteins = OK
  • Animal Proteins + Animal Proteins = No No
  • Starches + Starches = OK
  • Fats + Proteins (animal or plant) = No No (or pair moderately)
  • Fats + Carbohydrates = OK
  • Fats + Starches = OK
  • Fruits are best eaten on an empty stomach
  • Fruit + Raw greens = OK (except melons)

When you “mis-combine” (mix incompatible food groups together at the same meal), two things happen: first, the food does not digest properly and ends up rotting and putrefying in your stomach, and second, because the food isn’t being absorbed properly, you don’t get the nutritional value you need from it.

When you mis-combine your meals by mixing animal protein with, say, carbohydrates high in starch (Maxi Carbs), your stomach begins pouring in both alkaline and acid, and unfortunately they neutralize each other. It’s a stalemate, and since the stomach maintains a 104 degree temperature, what you end up with is sort of an “oven” where the undigested meat and starch begins to ferment, rot and putrefy, causing the undesirable symptoms of gas, flatulence, headaches, bloat, sleepiness, diarrhea, constipation, etc. We’re talking about a real mess, and if it continues over the years, undigested food will begin to pile up and ultimately clog your colon and intestinal tract (your life lines to health).

 

WE ALL MUST BECOME MORE ACCEPTING OF THE FACT THAT…..WE DO NOT HAVE TO EAT MEAT AT EVERY MEAL……..WORK WITH THE PROGRAM AND THE PROGRAM WILL WORK FOR YOU.

On more than one occasion I have found myself commenting about someone’s relationship:

  • “I don’t know why Janice and Bobby ever got married, they are total opposites. He’s outgoing and she’s dull and lifeless.
  • On the other hand, I went to Tanya and John’s wedding– they were a beautiful couple and seemed so in love.  Didn’t last 2 years.
  • But I must say the real shocker wasNancy and Tom—married 35 years.  Now, if you stay together that long—why would you be getting a divorce?

I should be shocked at some of these lost relationships. But again, I wonder how to repair a relationship—is there a tool to help couples create the relationship they desire?

  • I still love him but I don’t know how to make it work
  • I wish I knew how to get his attention—I want to feel loved.

If you desire to experience passionate and vibrant love relations with your current spouse, boyfriend–or you want to prepare for a new relationship—I found a tool that can help you enhance or create change in your relationships. I think you’ll discover how to repair a relationship and get the love you desire.

Which Hair Color Options Look Best With Brown Skin?

Black Hair
Black Hair (Photo credit: Nodlem)

Hair coloring is one of the most amazing trends! If you’re looking to renew your look with some type of makeover, why not start with your hair color? The primary concern with most women is not knowing which color to pick for dying their hair. Let’s see where to start, well all the hot magazines usually say it all depends on what your eye color is foremost. What if you have dark brown eyes?  Then lightening your hair would be a great way to accent your eye color. If you have light colored eyes the rule is to keep your hair color darker. The contrast of light and dark give the effect of making your eyes POP!

Other stylists say they prefer to see black hair on darker skin, with maybe a few light brown highlights instead of taking the entire head of hair up to a lighter brown, highlights typically look fantastic and sexy!

I once heard a woman say that no brand of hair dye really works good on black hair because black hair is usually deep black or a dark brown. There are solutions out there though, one may even opt for a rich red color too. Dark hair is may not take most hair color easily especially if you’re going lighter. The sure way to get color to show on dark hair is to lift the color. Most professional salons can help you here. Lightening hair is a lengthy process but the end result is quite nice!

There are brands in the grocery store that you can work with at home for a new look. All colors pretty much work the same except for the darker colors since they are more longer lasting typically. Look for hair color especially made for black hair as a start. However, you never want to grab the first brand you see when you’re in a store. For example, an herbal essence brand may not be a good option since it will probably dry your hair out. Go black, since generally you can expect the hair color brands for black hair to have a good moisturizer in them.

I’ve heard from a couple women that the best brand of hair color to use on black hair is Adore. You can find it at major beauty supplies stores. Considering, your existing hair color you may need to lighten it first with hair peroxide. Usually its number 20 for lightening darker hair or number 10 for lighter hair, Sometimes number 30 peroxide is used but keep in mind the stronger the peroxide, the more damage is done to your hair.

What if you want color but want to just refresh your look but don’t want anything too drastic? Commonly the color brown is seen as more natural, or you could opt for a deep brown which is a brilliant look for complimenting brown skin. If you want to jazz it up a bit use a little red color with it. If you think the color black or dark brown is too dark for your skin completion, I would do light brown and add some chunks of various light brown tones too. Alternately you could do a warm but deep, rich, chocolate brown. Feisty!

Still need some help with choosing a color? Is your hair naturally brown or already dyed? Don’t get too confused with what to do about this future fly hair you’ll soon have! Instead just write down a couple notes if you like and find a couple looks online or offline that you like then take trip to the local hair salon and ask for their honest option. Why do you have to do all this homework? Well, I’m glad you asked.

Hair coloring can really strip your natural hair color. If you want to reduce the damage or have none at all. Seek a professional or follow directions like you’re reading and following a freaking treasure map! Trust me. You really don’t want to damage your hair. You’re goal is to enhance your look, yes!?

Last if u are simply looking for a small change in your appearance, I recommend looking into going with highlights or low lights, you could do wider or thinner lines of color, there are many ways to have it done. One last thing, I heard the brand in most grocery stores called Garnier Nutrisse is superb. They have more dark colors than most brands and their dye has avocado oil in it too, so doesn’t smell so strong. That’s all for now, Keep it simple, have fun with your hair and work it.

Some of The Best Options for Black Hair Color

When you think of all the options out there to dye your hair with you might get confused a bit in the process of it all. After years of practice with hair coloring I’m here to tell you about the good solutions for you to try, but also to tell you what others have said absolutely works like a charm for them.

Changing the color of natural black hair can be quite a task if you don’t know what to look for or what to do. So lets start with some of the better solutions first to get you on track with this hair color transformational thing. One of the most popular products to use for dying your hair to a long lasting color is Clairol Texture and Tones Permanent Hair color, next on the list is Cream of Natures brand of hair color or Dark and Lovely Hair Color. These brands have been on the market for over 20 years at least. You can count on them for predictable results. Many beauticians say these brands are true to bringing out the color that is on the box. In other words what you see is what you get.

Some people still argue that at home hair coloring is not a wonderful idea for newbie hair colorists. Professional stylists often say that it’s safer to get your hair permanently dyed by a beautician. Their reasons for saying this is because of the mistakes that can happen as a result of a person not following directions. For instance if you don’t rinse the hair dye out of your hair all the way or well enough, you could expect to have some possible issues with hair breakage perhaps. In addition no one wants you to get hair color in your eyes or to leave the color solution on your skin for longer than absolutely necessary to do so. Again, professionals know what to do, so its a bit safer to hire someone plus you may need a day off anyway.

The risk of damaging your hair by doing a permanent coloring on your hair at home is higher some might say. So, as a precaution if you prefer not to go to the beautician or you don’t want to pay out the money for one there are still some great options. Let’s say that you don’t know which hair color you want. You could always visit Sally’s beauty supply for Jazzy’s Semi-Permanent Hair Color. There are so many unique colors to choose from too. The nice thing about Jazzy’s is that it’s just temporary so it always washes out after seven shampoos it’s definitely a far healthier solution than the permanent stuff. Jazzy’s is what you would call a ‘color rinse’ so it contains no ammonia or peroxide, but also the color comes out deep and bold.

Pick your colors wisely. You can try out the temporary color before you go to the permanent stuff. That way you wear it for a while then if like the way it looks on you and want the color permanently you can have a beautician dye your hair that color. Be mindful as you choose a color to wear because ‘jet-black’ will be hard to lighten with another color. If you choose a permanent black color just make sure it’s a color you want to wear for a long time.

There are many lovely colors that look good next to brown skin. Some of the colors you should check out are, deep reds, chocolatey browns, light browns or even burgundy colors too. Have fun and no matter what you still look stunning!

The Simple Way to Transition from Permed To Natural Hair

400990_4540366241824_1077034282_n(1)Hair, hair and more hair is all you hear black women talking about nowadays. Almost everything from the design and style to the color and texture. Black hair can be so diverse to have. All-natural hair is quite common right now but also making a strong come back in the year 2012. Hair is so important to so many women since hair is one of the first things you see on them. With the new energy of heightened positivity in the world, more men and women are savoring the benefits of living a brighter, more easier life. Consequently, more women are also wanting to reverse the appearance of their hair to a more stress-free look.

Black hair is stunning when it’s worked well. If it’s not, curly hair can be a fairly unsettled subject matter to cope with. One of the main considerations in the black community and precisely with African American women is the permed verses natural hair saga. One of the largest difficulties with women leaving their permed straight hair for natural hair is the (hair length loss factor). That was a tongue twister!

What I’m speaking of is the way that African hair has a tendency to normally be springy, tight coily and kinky curly. There is so much one can do to their hair when they enable it to grow out chemical free. On the other hand most women don’t care anything about that but would much rather have their hair length instead.

IMG_2140

Most major hair transitions take time. Switching from chemical to naturally treated hair is a significant phase in ones’ life. This is definitely the case with permed to natural hair. There are some obvious changes that have to happen in order for a woman to successfully have the head of hair that she desires. For one, the perm kit days are over as soon as she decides no more straight hair. Now instead of continuing to care for her hair with chemically treated products, a woman may usually switch to using organic, holistic products on her hair since it just makes sense.
