The Overweight Advantages!

It turns out that women with more lush forms have some advantages over the models.

As showed the supervision of scientists from Denmark,who engaged in their studies 3000 volunteers of both sexes, if a woman has the buttocks over 100 cm, the risk of death from heart attacks is reduced by as much as 87% compared with the "thin" representatives of weaker sex. And the threat of coronary heart disease and cardiovascular disease among larger women is reduced by 86% and 46% respectively.

The reason is that unlike the fat in the abdomen, in the buttocks' fat there is substance adiponectin , which prevents arteries to swell and block. As a result, women are full of more favorable outlook for the birth of children and housework -  a note to those who plans to marry.

Among men in the buttocks area were not seen anything similar, so their hearts on this factor is independent.

The Stress Can Help You Loose Weight, The Depression - NO!

When a person is experiencing stress (for example, when going to the dentist, parachute jumping, etc.), which does not get to depression, burns huge amounts of energy. Slimming is happening extremely quickly - sometimes even more than a kilo a day. Consequently, the stress - beefing our noble cause of getting rid of extra weight - instantly raises our metabolism and makes us "to push out" the excess fluid from the body, allowing to make new records, not making a big effort for this.

The "beneficial" stress can be attributed to two categories: "for the soul"and "for the body". "For soul" stresses are: parachute jumps, visiting attractions such as "toboggans" or even… the same trip to the dentist. "For body" - a sauna, contrast shower, a sharp increase in one-time physical activity (hike, general cleaning, the first training). Particularly such stress is useful when the weight loss is "stopped" and it remains the same. In order to move it from the dead end, the regime usually is tighten, but this way is a deadlock. How much will you resist the spartan way of life in our world temptations? All life? It is very doubtful. Therefore, the strict restrictive measures is best to leave for the last trump in the struggle over weight, preferring them a good shake up for all the systems with manageable stress.

But the depression leads to a diametrically opposite effect - the body metabolism decreases, which corresponds to the sleeping state of the body. Accordingly, the part of food energy, which should go to "actual needs", will be unused and, respectively, suspended in fat depot. Recall your past attempts to loose weight: wanna eat - and shouldn't, want to relax - have to train to the seventh sweat. And the permanent thought: so will be every day - today, tomorrow, forever… The weight loss slows down… Life is getting grim, and turns into a torture - we live from meal to meal, from rest to rest with the constant knowledge that after a short time of enjoying, it will be sad and hard again…

When we are depressed, we thus interrupt the slimming process which in most cases makes it worse (the depression). The result is a vicious circle, which almost always follows the breakdown, rollback, a return to the starting point. To prevent such a development of situation, one should:

1. Do not mock over yourselves. The sharp limitation of food and maximum load is unacceptable.
2. In the process of slimming, the depression should be avoided with all necessary forces and means! If you feel that because of the circumstances immersed in this swamp - shake, diverting any means, do something pleasant. After all, drink some tranquilizing drinks, antidepressant (calming often inhibits metabolism, but this is still less evil than depression).

Better start slimming in the quiet period of life when there aren't any negative emotions on the horizon. Remember that your depression is the same enemy as overeating and lack of movement!

Walking and Milk Will Help You Loose Weight

Dieticians from the American University of Colorado offered to all those who wish to get rid of the extra weight, a new, very effective and not particularly difficult way to implement your dream. It does not require either starving or exhausting long-time exercises. Forget about the extra kilos with the help of milk, dairy products and daily walking.

The American dieticians made an experiment, which involved 199 volunteer people from both sexes and various ages. All of these people had pretty much extra weight. Dieticians offered them the following programme: each day during the four months the volunteers were devoting at least one hour of walking, counting at the same time ten thousand or more steps.

The temperature and duration of walks they chose by themselves, the most important for researchers was precisely the number of steps. In addition, some volunteers were required to change their diet, adding the skimmed milk and dairy products like yogurt, cheese, etc. Thus, the body of volunteers received more than the usual amount of calcium.

Combined with a regular walking, such a quantity of calcium consumption had a very pleasant effect for volunteers - in four months they got rid of a part of the excess weight: an average of six unnecessary kilos disappeared. Dieticians said that the thing is in the rapid combustion of fats, which occur in the body because it is a regular walking and consumption of milk and dairy products.

The milk, beside calcium, also contains a lot of other useful substances, without which is impossible the normal development of the organism, moreover - their combination in milk is optimal. Dieticians recommend to drink daily two to three cups of skim milk or a cup of usual milk to keep the organism in shape.

The Lemon Helps To Lose Weight And Stay Slim

Because of the badly working digestive system, the organism is not able to absorb all the necessary nutrients for fat burning. So, toxins accumulate in the body, cause fatigue and slow down the metabolism. Also, a lack of nutrients in organism make us feel a sense of constant hunger, and here we very often have snacks, biscuits and other "easy" meals.

The main property of lemon is the lead-out of toxins from the body, and the normalization of metabolism. Citric acid interact with enzymes and other acids, stimulating digestion and the provision of gastric liquids. With its high acidity (7 - 8% in fruit), even a small piece of lemon can positively influence the process of food digestin, and reduce the risks of raising the sugar level in the blood.

Another lemon miracle is the pectin. This substance is contained in the lemon's exterior layer. When reaching the stomach, pectin turns into a creamy gel and cover the stomach walls. According to earlier studies, the use of pectin in food can dampen the sense of hunger about 4 hours.

The Lemon juice contains a big amount of vitamin C. This vitamin contributes to the mobilization of protective body, combats coldness, improves the metabolism and as a consequence - the weight loss.

The advantage a lemon diet is that it is not necessarily to starve or give up favorite meals. All you have to do for loosing weight - include several spoons of lemon juice and pulp in the daily diet. And of course the situation will improve with exercise and healthy eating.

It is also advised to consume more water, at least 6-8 cups a day. The morning is better to start with a mix of warm water with the addition of lemon juice.

But drinking coffee and tea should be avoided, as well as carbonated drinks and unnatural juices. The base should be on the diet with fruits and vegetables - about five servings per day. In soups and salads add a little dried lemon peel, and the fish and meat can be flavored with lemon juice.

Avoid products with high sugar content: bread, rice and potatoes. If consumed large quantities of such products, coupled with fruits - this may badly affect the level of sugar in blood. Fat saturated products are also not desirable. Remember that they are contained in large quantities in red meat, cakes and pies. And do not forget that unsaturated fats are necessary for weight loss. They delay the influx of carbohydrates in the blood, and thereby contribute to keeping the low body insulin and sugar.

Eating should be slowly, carefully chewing the food. The process of chewing relaxes the muscle below abdomen and transmits a nerve signal activating the digestive processes. Eat at the scheduled time and not rush the process to bring a sense of saturation, which may be delayed. It is rational to wait 20 minutes to make sure of feeling saturation.

Lose Weight With Water - It's Easy!

American dieticians recommend using the "water" diet to get rid of unnecessary weight, which is becoming increasingly popular. With a shortage of liquid, the organism begins to feel stressed and sends signals to the brain similar to the signals of hunger. As a result, we are beginning to eat, while the need to drink! The unnecessary at this point nutrients are postponed in the form of fat in the most hidden parts of our body, and over time these parts cease to be so hidden.

The sadness of losing the slender figure, we are trying to compensate with some milk chocolates or harassing ourselves with fitness classes. But getting back to the well-shaped figure is as well possible by having a balanced water consumption. By drinking every day about 2 -2.5 liters of water (in addition to juices, tea and coffee), we can suppress the feeling of hunger and reduce the number of food we intake (of course, constraining the consumption of fatty products).

And it water you have to drink, because even the tea and coffee contain active substances that alter the chemical composition of the body. Carbonated beverages are "saturated" with harmful chemicals, causing additional dehydration.

The clean water in the diet plays a crucial role. Tap water contains an abundance of active chlorine and other impurities, acquired in passing through the water supply tubes. The helpful habit of drinking purified water will be gratefully received by your body.

It is recommended to use a specially developed filter or nozzle on the crane which give you the opportunity to quietly drink safe water in all respects.

Moreover, If having a balanced consumption of water, the skin will always be sufficiently saturated with moisture from the inside, and therefore, protected from the effects of frost and sun, drying and peeling. That is with one shot kill two rabbits at once - losing excess fat and skin regain freshness!

So filter, drink, slenderize!

How To Maintain the Weight in Winter

A beautiful slender figure is a pride for a woman. But girls often recall about this a month before they have to wear bathing suits. In order not to have to figure out in the last moment a way to loose the gained fat over the winter, we just need to not stock it. But what to do if in cold weather we want to eat particular often, and especially a lot?

First of all, establish the purpose to remain slender. Keep in mind the image of yourself in the best form. Whenever you want to ravage your refrigerator, recall that image - and even if it wont stop you, then at least will make you eat less.

Write in a notebook or diary what, when and why you ate something. It happens so that a person does not want to eat because of hunger, but because of stress. With this diary, in a little while you will be able to see some patterns. Rather than eating, find an interesting occupation, for example, chat with friends or take a relaxing bath.

Eat more soup. The liquid itself quickly fills the stomach and prevents overeating.
Do not hesitate to go for a walk at lunch, don't be lazy to move. When you walk away not only burn calories, but also in the daytime receive the necessary light, which contributes to serotonin (it makes us feel happier). In order not to fall in winter depression, experts recommend to consume more foods that are high in carbohydrates.

Coffee, hot chocolate and cappuccino - are of course, good warming drinks, but also rich in calories. The leader is chocolate, then cappuccino, and then coffee. Replace these beverages with tea - green or fruit. The invigorating effect, by the way, is identical.

Sports and dance activities do not have to be left in Winter. Move, dance at home or in the gym -it's the surest way to burn calories. Do not hurry to switch on the heater when the house becomes cold - better warm yourself by making a few exercises.

Sleep enough. Experts tell that the lack of sleep affects the appetite - we want to eat more.
