How to Lose Weight Fast

Have You Ever Wondered How To Lose Weight Fast?

Do you want to lose weight fast, most people do?  We live in an era of speed an age when everyone wants quick results.  Regardless of the fact that the excess weight a person carries took time to accumulate they often want to be rid of it in a short space of time.  That’s why everyone is looking for the quick fix and explains the lure of the latest pill, potion or exotic tea.

Everyone want to know how to lose weight fast and it’s possible to lose it quickly using pills but these have bad side effects.  It’s also possible to starve oneself by going on one of the diets that cuts out food all together and to lose weight quickly.  You may have noticed that the majority of those who do lose weight this way put it all back on again.

The best way to lose weight is to lose it steadily in the same way it was gained which gives the body a chance to adjust and the skin to return to it’s original size and shape.  However there are ways of addressing weight problems that can help to lose weight faster than others and there are some things to avoid too.

How to Lose Weight Fast

The things to avoid if you want to lose weight and to lose it fast are diets.  Diets focus on food and the focus while on a diet is generally on what you can’t have.  Cutting out foods, calorie counting, fat reduction, points and the like mean that all the focus is on food, food, food.

People on diets learn which foods are ‘bad’ and which foods are ‘good.’  They learn what to avoid and what they can have and again it’s all food, food, food.  Because of the way the mind works this focus on food will make you crave food and especially the foods you have been told not to have.

To lose weight fast is easier than you ever imagined.  First of all decide what you want, not what you don’t want but what you want.  Keep the focus off food for now and focus on size and shape and level of fitness then write it down.

Now ask yourself the following questions:

  • “What do I have to do to achieve that?”
  • “What sorts of food could I eat to help me to achieve it?”
  • “What portion sizes will be needed to achieve my goal?
  • “How can I enjoy foods and still reach my goal?” 

You do know the answers to those questions and if you ask them repeatedly by beginning each day asking, “What could I eat today that will help me to be slim by… “ or “What size portion shall I eat this evening so I can reach my goal by… “ or “How can I stay on track today so I can achieve my goal of being… on… “

The way the human mind is set up, whenever you ask a question your mind has to give you an answer and you have all the knowledge you need within you.  Use the power of your subconscious mind to help you to know how to lose weight fast and to keep it off forever.

5 Components of Physical Fitness

While the definition of physical fitness can be a little complex or unclear and the definition of physical fitness can vary, most government health agencies and exercise scientists agree that there are 5 components of physical fitness related to health. These components provide a fairly accurate representation of how fit and healthy the body is as a whole (total or overall fitness). The 5 components are cardiovascular fitness (also referred to as cardio-respiratory endurance or cardiovascular endurance), muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, and body composition.

Let’s take a closer look at these components individually.

1.) Cardiovascular fitness (or cardio-respiratory endurance or cardiovascular endurance)

Of the 5 components, cardiovascular fitness is the cornerstone that creates the pathway to improving your other fitness levels.

Cardiovascular fitness is the efficiency with which the body (the heart and lungs) delivers oxygen and nutrients to the required working muscles and transports waste products from the cells over a sustained period of time. Or to put it another way, it’s the ability of your heart and lungs to work together to provide the necessary oxygen and fuel to your body without quickly reaching a high level of fatigue and tiredness.

In our daily lives, we need cardiovascular fitness to handle the physical tasks and all of the “running around” we do.

A common test of cardiovascular fitness usually involves some type of sustained running. But typical examples of physical activities that relate to cardiovascular fitness are jogging, swimming, cycling, brisk or speed walking and any type of aerobic exercises. Aerobic exercise is the best way to improve cardiovascular fitness.

2.) Muscular strength

Muscular strength is the maximum amount of force (weight or heavy resistance) a muscle or muscle group can generate in a single effort to the point that no more repetitions can be done without rest. Muscular strength is quite the opposite of cardiovascular fitness in regards to the fact that cardiovascular fitness is measured over a certain period of time. While on the other hand, muscular strength is measured in one repetition.

In our daily lives, we need modest levels of strength to be able to perform everyday physical tasks like lifting, moving, carrying, etc.

A common test to measure upper body strength is some type of weightlifting exercise, such as the bench press. Anaerobic weightlifting exercises like the bench press, leg press, shoulder press, or bicep curls are examples of the best ways to improve muscular strength.

3.) Muscular endurance

Muscular endurance is the ability of a muscle or group of muscles to perform repeated movements (or to hold a particular position) with less than maximum force for an extended period of time or until muscular fatigue. Or, to put it simplistically, it’s how long your muscles can do something before getting too exhausted to finish.

Be careful not to confuse muscular endurance with muscular strength. While they can work together, they are definitely not the same. For many athletes, there may be a need to distinguish between muscular strength and muscular endurance. But for everyday people who want to easily perform their daily routines, are trying to stay healthy and fit, and just want to enjoy physical activities like hiking, biking, or just playing in the park with their children, muscular endurance plays a major role in fitness.

Common testing for muscular endurance can be dynamic (the ability to repeat contractions) or static (the ability to sustain a contraction). Dynamic tests would be to see how many push-ups or sit-ups, for example, a person can complete in a designated amount of time (e.g. 30 seconds, a minute, or maybe longer). Or, without being timed, the person could do as many repetitions of the exercise as they could until they couldn’t do anymore. An example of a static test would be the flexed-arm hang whereby the performer hangs on a bar until the designated stopping time or until they become too weak to continue hanging.

Muscular endurance can be improved by both aerobic and anaerobic exercises. Some examples would be biking, step machines and elliptical machines.

4.) Flexibility

Flexibility is the ability to move the joints or any group of joints, muscles, ligaments, and tendons through their full, normal range of motion without hindrance, discomfort, or pain.

Flexibility is actually more important to physical fitness than people realize. Not only does flexibility play a big role in performing many daily tasks, but maintaining or even increasing your flexibility is critical to protecting your joints and keeping them healthy. In addition, being flexible contributes to improving your lower back health, reducing the appearance and effects of arthritis, and reducing muscle-tendon injuries.

Not everyone has the same flexibility or flexibility requirements. Your flexibility tells you how limber you are. And, when it comes to testing your flexibility fitness level, the sit-and-reach test is most often used.

Stretching is the best way to improve flexibility. And, most fitness experts recommend a daily routine of static stretches for each joint.

5.) Body composition

Body composition is the percentage of fat in your body compared to your lean body mass (muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, organs, etc.).

Body composition is a better indicator of your overall fitness condition than body weight. So understand that your total body weight or what you see on your bathroom scale does not tell you how much fat or lean body mass (muscle) you have.

Body composition is useful in helping to determine health risks. Therefore, knowing your body composition and how it relates to your overall fitness level is essential. An optimal ratio of fat mass to lean mass is a clear indicator of good fitness.

Your body composition is a consequence of the extent that you perform the other components of physical fitness. In other words, when you improve the other four components, it will have a positive impact on body composition resulting in less body fat. Alternatively, when you have a high body fat content ratio, you are considered overweight or possibly obese. And, it negatively affects the other fitness components as well as your daily performance, your appearance, and your overall health.

There are several methods that can be used to calculate body composition. The best method is underwater weighing. But due to the expense, this isn’t practical for the everyday person. Incidentally, if you can go to a university or some other place that is set up to do it, it would be well worth your time to check it out. Therefore, the most common method of determining your body composition is skinfold readings – using skinfold calipers and taking measurements from certain areas of your body.

A regular program involving aerobic exercise and strength training can help you decrease your body fat and increase your muscle mass; and thereby, significantly improving your body composition and general overall health and fitness.

In conclusion, you now know that being fit is not just about being able to bench press a lot of weight, but you also need to know how well you can handle running a mile, for example, and a few other things. The key is that by understanding the 5 components of physical fitness, you’ll be better able to assess your fitness level and determine what specific health and fitness goals you’d like to achieve.

Why You Should Stretch After Running

Running is a vigorous and a tough all over body workout. Many injuries can be caused by failing to stretch after a running work out and it is even more important to stretch after running to ensure that your muscles have time to lengthen and return to their normal form.

I have been involved in running for over 15 years and there are a number of reasons why you should spend time stretching after running these include:

1. Improves flexibility and recovery after running

Running takes a hard toll upon your body and particularly muscles and tendons. During running your muscles become contracted (shortened) as you tense your body and as they have to adapt to running surfaces. Stretching after running will re lengthen them and improve flexibility and also promote a faster recovery. If you’ve ever felt stiff a few hours after running or for a number of days afterwards, this is the effect of lactic acid on your muscles.

Tip: To see the benefit of stretching, try running without stretching afterwards and then next time take time out to do a 10 minute warm down of stretches. Compare how you feel after doing both and you’ll notice the benefit of stretching.

2. Reduce the effects of lactic acid on your body

During exercise your body works hard to produce energy for your muscles. This is especially so for runners who need a constant flow of energy to keep their muscles moving. If you body is unable to get sufficient oxygen it starts to produce lactic acid which attacks muscles and causes you to become more susceptible to exhaustion, causing you to slow down.

As you rest and your body is able to restore normal levels of oxygen, lactic acid reduces and the muscles return to normality. Lactic acid is bad for your body and gentle stretches after running can help to stretch out tried tendons and muscles and speed up the process of lactic acid leaving the body. As your muscles are also more susceptible to small tears after a build up of lactic acid, stretching after running will also help you relax your muscles by gently lengthening them after they become shortened during exercise.

Suggested warm down program of stretches after running

    1. Walk around for 5 minutes to help your muscles to relax and avoid them going into spasms.

    2. Stretch out calf muscles (muscles directly behind your knees)

    3. Ham String Stretches (These are the muscles at the back of your legs that lead up to your bum) Some of the most common injuries for runners occur to these)

    4. Stretch Quadriceps (these are the opposite side of your ham string in your thigh area) These often hurt a lot after doing exercise and you’ll notice them particularly when you try and sit down and cross your legs.

    5. Stretch your lower back. These takes a huge beating after running, especially on concrete and it can be painful and sore after a long run.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Various Glutathione Supplements

Deciding on a product for supplementing glutathione greatly depends on the reason why you want to supplement glutathione. Are your needs long term or short term? How important is cost? Are you interested in better athletic performance, general wellness, or support for a treatment such as chemotherapy or radiation? Ideally, the type of glutathione supplementation you choose should be safe, affordable and there should be clinical evidence that it actually is effective at increasing cellular glutathione levels in humans. Glutathione does its work inside the cells of the body, so a supplement should increase glutathione at the cellular level.

Many products can be eliminated from consideration because clinical evidence indicates that they do not work. Glutathione in capsule or tablet form is very common. However, many professionals feel that oral administration of glutathione is ineffective, commonly citing the studies done at the University of Bern and Emory University. One study demonstrated that rats are able to absorb oral glutathione. This goes to show that animal studies alone are not necessarily a reliable guide.

When glutathione is taken orally, very little reaches the bloodstream. There are other products that are probably more effective at delivering glutathione to the bloodstream. There are nasal, sublingual (under the tongue), dermal (patches), and even intravenous administrations. One oral product encloses reduced glutathione in microscopic packages called liposomes. There is not a great deal of clinical evidence that any of these methods increase cellular levels of glutathione. Even if that were the case, the long term use of a direct delivery method might pose problems. The body already has a complex system for managing glutathione involving production, recycling and a two stage negative feedback loop for regulating cellular glutathione levels. Forcing glutathione into the body is likely to disrupt the balance of this system.

Availability of the amino acid cysteine can limit the body’s production of glutathione. Therefore, the two most popular ways of making cysteine available for glutathione production are N-acetyl cysteine (also called NAC) and whey protein concentrate. Other compounds that are known to increase levels of glutathione include S-adenosylmethionine, alpha lipoic acid and silymarin or milk thistle. There are products that use combinations of these compounds. They generally include a cysteine donor such as NAC or whey protein in conjunction with the other compounds so as to provide support for all phases of glutathione metabolism.

The long term use of glutathione supplementation for purposes of general wellness or healthy aging deserves more study. At this time, results of any large scale studies of long term supplementation in a human populations have not been published. Some studies suggest that the use of N-acetyl cysteine for this purpose might be a problem since part of the NAC is converted to S-nitroso-N-acetylcysteine, abbreviated SNOAC. This compound might cause arterial problems such as pulmonary arterial hypertension.

Whey protein, on the other hand, is nothing more than milk protein. Fresh, raw milk is treated with citric acid (acid whey) or rennet (sweet whey). This causes the casein protein to curdle leaving the whey protein dissolved in the clear liquid that is left over. This clear liquid is called whey. The whey is filtered and dehydrated to a dry powdered concentrate. That is basically how whey powder products are produced. It is sterile and reputable companies generally have a scrupulous quality control process that insures a safe, pure, and consistent product. In addition to supplementing glutathione, whey protein is known to increase muscle mass. This may help offset sarcopenia, one of the conditions that contribute to Frailty Syndrome that is common to older persons.

There is a lot of variation of protein composition of whey powders. This affects glutathione supplementation output. A comparison of various protein powders can be found at http://www.rimkor7.com/best_protein.php.

Good Diet to Get Rid of Parasites

Any living being in this world needs nutrition to live and this goes same in case of parasites too. A healthy intestinal tract is very important to prevent attacks by various microorganisms or pathogens. It is well known fact that parasites can be effectively prevented by taking high dosages of probiotics substances such as Lactobacillus acidophilus, bifidobacteria and L. bulgaricus.

Many of the folk remedy experts favor taking food that is having strong odor, garlic being one of them. Garlic is considered to be having natural ant parasitic properties as well as antibacterial, fungal and viral action. Parasites present in the intestines do like sweet fruits and sugary foods. It can include juices, canned/frozen fruits, high fructose items, sugarcane, syrups etc. Refined flour items and sugary items are also to be avoided as much as possible. Fermented foods, bakery items, sweet sprouts, high gluten content foods, beans, starchy grains etc are to be avoided.

On the other hand, yogurt, eggs, seafood, millet, amaranth, buckwheat can be taken since parasites do not like them. Goat milk, olive, pumpkin, sunflower and saffron are good to have since they create an environment that is not healthy for parasites present in the intestines. Some of the dieticians and naturopaths suggest taking soaked almonds (the best one), almond butter and caraway to inhibit the growth of the parasites. Turkey, chicken, brown rice, sweet potatoes, mint, coriander seeds and/or leaves, holy basils are good to have as all of them carry natural anthelminthic properties and hence they all can kill parasites and their eggs.

Soymilk, onions, cloves, fennel seeds, apple cider vinegar, ginger and asafetida are few of the most effective edible items that works specific on parasites and their eggs present in the intestines and terminate them. In addition, they not only help you getting rid of parasites, but they also improve the digestion and also assimilation. They accelerate the metabolic rate in the body and hence restore the hormonal levels and keep the body healthy.

Some of the herbs can also be taken as daily health supplements. Herbs like Butea monosperma, Neem, Terminalia belirica, Emblica ribes, cinnamon, cardamom are considered to be good for intestines since they improve digestion and also terminate parasites and their eggs. They help restoring the digestion and relieve abdominal cramp, diarrhea and other gastrointestinal related problems.

Some of the ancient medical practitioner favors taking buttermilk with coriander seeds, cumin seed powder and little bit of rock salt. Such type of solution would be great treating any kind of parasites’ infestation in the intestines. This solution can be taken daily without any worries. There are many detox diet that are readily available in the market in the name of ‘intestinal detox diet’ that contain pills made up of the blend of effective herbs and they are to be taken regularly for a certain period. Latest researches reveal that turmeric can also help getting rid of parasites and their eggs. One can take raw turmeric or can go for its powder.

3 Ways to Exercise As a Family and Have Fun!

Here are some thought-provoking facts and figures,

  1. On average, North Americans sit 11 hours per day.
  2. 65% of Americans watch 2 or more hours of TV every day. And,
  3. Sedentary lifestyles are responsible for an estimated $24 billion in direct medical spending.

The number of Americans who currently live a sedentary lifestyle is growing. The sedentary way of life that has been attributed to a rise in the following:

  • high blood pressure,
  • cardiovascular diseases,
  • certain cancers, and
  • obesity.

Yikes!

The case for reviving and embedding an active lifestyle is more important than ever.

We are blessed to be living in, for the most part, a country of plenty. Where food is all but a drive or phone call away. We have modern conveniences that enable us to be fed information and entertained at the same time. Right in the comfort of our homes. We have cable television, radio, the internet, smartphones, and computers. In and of itself, these things aren’t bad. Yet it is the availability of these same conveniences that can lull us into a sedentary lifestyle.

According to research there now millions of children, young teens, and adults who have embraced the sedentary lifestyle. Fewer that are pursuing outdoor activities. Fewer and fewer signing up for team sports. Even fewer who are committed to a daily fitness routine.

So what can we do about it?

Here are three ‘exercises’ that you can do as a family.

I have enclosed the word ‘exercise’ in the paragraph above for a reason.

A family routine seen as not being fun – i.e. formal forms of exercise like running, and weightlifting – will be soundly defeated right out of the gate.

There will be moaning, groans of protest, and outright tantrums. And I am not just talking about the children here.

Every session of family activity will be a hard slog of negotiations or outright bribery.

It’s sometimes easier to just join them then try to convince them. The trick here is to re-look at some of the things that both children and adults might do during the day. Things that isn’t necessarily seen as physical activity or exercise.

I have a list of three activities that may just be the thing to get a little – or a lot of – movement into the day.

  1. Competing in activity-based video games. Technology is not all bad. In this instance, you can make it work for the whole family. Gaming consoles now incorporate technology that is able to track the movement of players. These games can either involve dancing, adventures, or virtual sports (i.e. tennis). There is even a game that encourages the destruction of random fruit thrown into the virtual air. The player’s hands become virtual swords that slice through said fruits. These games are not only fun to play but also encourage friendly competition. Trust me when I say that it works up quite the sweat.
  2. Walking or riding to the local park or school. This is a no brainer. This is the lowest hanging fruit for getting the family to exercise together. Incorporate scooters, skateboards, and rollerblades if you have them. Just not the electric variety.
  3. Pre- or post-dinner walks. Even if just a brisk walk around the neighborhood before or after the family meal. Anything to wake-up an otherwise sluggish metabolism and get the blood going.

Benefits On An Active Family Lifestyle

Scheduling a regular family exercise into the week is awesome for two reasons,

  • It allows the family to spend more quality time together. And,
  • Creates a positive association between health and exercise.

The health benefits gained from family exercises and activities can stave off health issues. Especially issues that may arise at a later age.

Who knows.

You may even experience something together that will most definitely last a lifetime: fun.

Safety at Javelin Training

You’ve probably all seen those videos of people being hit with javelins, through their body, their leg, etc. etc. Yeah, it’s funny for a few seconds but would you really like to be the one hit by the javelin? Or the person who threw the javelin which hit that person?

Probably NOT! Here are some tips to avoid such accidents:

Many javelin throwers will have multiple javelins to throw at training. Many throwers will also be throwing when other people are at the track and possibly throwing also.

As a general rule you should always throw ALL the javelins before going out to collect all of them.

This eliminates the risk of anyone throwing the javelin while someone else is collecting another one.

Never throw a javelin towards someone or have them throw towards you. That is just sheer stupidity. I don’t care if they say “you’ll never throw it this far!” That’s irrelevant, the risk is quite obviously there.

If there are others using the track while you are throwing, try cordoning off the throw zone to prevent people walking across as a short cut.

When collecting javelins be careful where you walk and be aware that you don’t collide with the tail end of the javelin protruding from the ground. Walk along side it and pull it out holding the grip. This will avoid pulling it into you. Also if more than one person is collecting place your other hand on the point of the tail of the javelin. This will help avoid injury to anyone who happens to end up standing behind you.

Safe Throwing!
