So far no effective weight loss pill or herb exists! The results at best have been very poor even from prescription weight loss drugs. Don’t let those adverts fool you! You are going to have to change your diet and exercise sometime to get real results.

To stop eating at 6pm is not beneficial and very often bad for your weight loss results! The ideal rule is to avoid a large meal within 3 hours of bed time and a smaller snack within 2 hours of bedtime. So count from your bedtime back and stop this miserable habit as you are suffering needlessly.

A large portion of your weight loss occurs after your workout!… Read more

The ideal amount of water to drink each day is 1L per 100lbs you weigh. So if you are 150lbs this should be 1.5L and 200 lbs then 2L. If you don’t drink water daily your insides are like a fish tank that hasn’t been cleaned out in weeks – get the picture!!

The ideal walking speed for weight loss is 12 minute miles. At this speed you burn great calories and greatly improve your metabolism. So whatever your current walking speed aim to gradually progress until you get to 12 minutes per mile!

L-glutamine is an amino acid which is a building block for body proteins. It is the most abundant amino acid in the body, arguably the most important and has incredible functions and benefits.

Perhaps most important of all is that L-glutamine can be used to help make all other amino acids required by the body. This flexibility makes it incredibly useful for a multitude of requirements but especially tissue building. It is also involved in the production of glutathione (major body protector especially against cancer), glucosamine (major joint protector) and vitamin B3 (cholesterol controller)… Read more

Constipation is one of the worst metabolism disorders of all and kills weight loss. It totally poisons the body from head to toe especially glands like the thyroid, liver and adrenals glands. If you suffer from it you must solve it immediately. I repeat if you suffer from it you must solve it immediately. Keep focused until you get to the root cause and sort it out. The worst thing you can do is mask it over with medications or laxatives, leaving it to eat away at your body.

Proper bowel function is at least 2 to 3 movements per day! Less then this and you are officially constipated. Based on this standard… Read more

Why Does My Cellulite Get Worse When I Lose Weight?

Cellulite very often gets worse during weight loss because of the poor nutrition people get from the diet they have chosen and because they do not include the right exercise. Good nutrition especially including essential fats (omega 3 and omega 6) and key minerals like calcium, magnesium and zinc is critical for accessing this stubborn, isolated and compacted fat and most weight loss diets do not include enough of these. The demand for these is actually higher if you are exercising for weight loss something you absolutely should be doing.

Unless you eat a very well designed and carefully thought out diet there is growing evidence that many people are not getting enough of key minerals including calcium, chromium, magnesium and zinc. Indeed it seems that up to 80% of us can be deficient. This is very worrying because the situation is likely to be a lot worse for those on poor weight loss diets and those who exercise regularly. A broader understanding of the roles these minerals play will perhaps motivate you to pay closer attention to them. Remember you are most likely to be deficient in them right now especially these 4 below!

For most people, the main cause of bad breath is a faulty digestive system and not poor dental hygiene. Badly digested food literally ‘rots’ in your intestine and releases foul smelling gases back up through your digestive system which you then exhale. A great place to start to correct this is to chew your food more slowly and avoid over eating at meals. Remember a woman should never eat/drink more than 400 calories at any one meal or snack and a man never more than 500 calories.

Another critical aid to correcting this problem is a strong probiotic (friendly bacteria) supplement. Make sure to … Read more

Exercise must be a major part of any decent weight loss plan. It is the fastest way to speed up a slow metabolism and it brings enormous physical and mental benefits to the process. Perhaps one of the greatest tragedies of today is the under-estimation of the enormous mental benefits of exercise. Hopefully in time these incredible benefits will be made more widely known.

There are 2 forms of exercise you need for weight lossaerobic (cardio) exercise and probably the most important form of all but unfortunately the most neglected of all – toning exercise. I still meet people every day who… Read more

First drunk around 2700BC, Green Tea has compounds that may provide powerful protection against cancers and heart disease as well as fighting infections and improving longevity.

Its key ingredients are powerful anti-oxidants called polyphenols which help protect cells against damage. One large scale study in China found that people who drank green tea had much lower rates of rectal, pancreatic and colon cancers. In women the risk of rectal and pancreatic cancer was nearly halved! Preliminary research has indicated in might also protect against breast, stomach and skin cancers.

Q. How Do I Lose Weight From My Inner & Outer Thighs?

A. There are 3 key strategies for this. First on most weight loss plans the amount of fat being burned is tiny and so you never really get to the fat stores in these areas. This is one of the main reasons people ‘stick’ after 3 weeks – they were never burning much fat in the first place and were mainly losing water and some toxins and as I have said before you can only lose so much of this before your results run dry.

Second due to metabolism changes especially hormone imbalances that build up as you get older the access to fat in these areas is very … Read more
