    I have been working really hard to get a sexy body. I go to the gym every day, watch what I eat, but still could not get the body I wanted. That was until I found this body cleansing stuff. I was able to get the sexy body I wanted in 9 days. I did a 9 day cleanse and lost 10 pounds and 15 inches! This was GREAT! I had been working so hard for over a year to get this, and this program gave me what I wanted in 9 days. I found out that many body builders use this to get ready for competitions because the protein in the shakes builds muscle and the cleanse helps to get rid of the toxins stored in the fat cells. When the toxins are removed, the fat cells shrink and you definitely can tell in the way your clothes fit! I recommend this product for anyone wanting to get a better looking body quickly. Find out about it at this toll free number 1-877-587-4647. It is not a cheap program, but it is worth it! You can also get it at this website http://getAnewBOD.com

    15 Ways to Cut 50 Calories or More

    A little here, a little there. Cutting calories is easier than you think! Think small! Trimming even just a small percentage of your body weight can do wonders for your health. And eating just a bit less is the way to do it. Shaving calories here and there is easier than you think. All it takes are a few no-sweat efforts like the ones that follow. Pick two a day and you'll cut 100 calories. Burn 100 more calories a day (a 15- to 20-minute walk will do the trick) and you'll lose almost half a pound a week. That may not sound like much, but it adds up to 20 pounds a year!

    1. Leave the cheese off your sandwich.

    2. Use 1 cup skim milk instead of 1 cup whole milk.

    3. Use a nonstick spray instead of 2 teaspoons oil.

    4. Drink seltzer or diet soda instead of regular soda.

    5. Have an English muffin instead of a doughnut

    6. Use 1 tablespoon light mayonnaise instead of 1 tablespoon regular mayo.

    7. Eat 2 tablespoons less ice cream.

    8. Drink 4 ounces less juice.

    9. Use 1 tablespoon less cream cheese.

    10. Order small fries instead of large fries.

    11. Use 1 tablespoon less salad dressing.

    12. Use one less pat of margarine

    13. Substitute 4 ounces ground turkey for 4 ounces ground beef.

    14. Have 1 ounce of pretzels instead of 1 ounce of potato chips.

    15. Substitute 1 tablespoon jam for 1 tablespoon butter.

    Cutting a few calories at every meal will add up to real calorie savings. Her are some culinary "special effects" that you can try to trim some calories and fat.

    # Substitute leaner meats for fattier ones, such as white-meat poultry for dark, lean ground turkey for ground beef, or pork tenderloins for ribs.

    # Bake or broil instead of frying in oil, which saturated whatever you're cooking, especially if the food is breaded.

    # Remove skin from poultry, trim visible fat from meat, and throw out the egg yolks. Why worry about hidden fat when the fat you can see -- and remove -- does most of the harm?

    # Buy low-fat or sugar-free products. If you haven't recently tried low-fat or fat-free foods (especially cheese), try them again: They've gotten better. If one brand doesn't taste good to you, try another. And you'll always save calories by replacing whole milk with fat-free or using naturally lower-fat cheeses such as mozzarella instead of higher-fat ones such as cheddar.

    # Mix higher-fat meats, cheeses, and other foods with lower-fat versions if you don't want to make wholesale substitutions.

  • Diet (eating too little calories) is a guarantee weight loss failure. Your body needs calories to survive. If your body does not get enough calories to sustain life, your metabolism drops to protect itself. Will you lose weight with dieting? Yes…. However, it is not a permanent weight loss. You will eventually gain the weight back plus more.

    When you diet, you will lose weight, which consist of water weight, muscle weight, and maybe a little fat.

    I am sorry but there is no short cut to weight loss. It requires time, persistence and hard work. If you want to lose weight safely and effectively, I outline the some general tips.

    1. Exercise (resistance training): Lifting weights can add muscle to your body. Your metabolism is highly correlated with how much muscles that you have. Your muscle is where fat is being burned.

    Basically, the more muscles that you have, the higher your metabolism, the more calories that you can burn even when you are sleeping. That is why 255-pound bodybuilder can eat more than 5,000 calories a day because of the amount of muscles that they have. They need to eat a lot just to maintain their muscle.

    Here are some exercises that will give you the best bang for your time.

    Squat, Dead lift, lunges, Military press, Push-up, Bench Press, Lat Pull Down, Pull-up, Row, etc. Focus in multi-joint movement to involve more muscles.

    2. Aerobic training: One way to boost your metabolism so that you are burning more calories is through interval training. Interval training consists of alternating between high intensity and low intensity training. For example, jog for 2 minutes to 30-second sprint. Repeat for 20 minutes.

    Interval training is much more effective that steady state cardio e.i. 30 minutes running with the same speed. Interval training allows you to burn more calories while reducing your time.

    3. Supportive Eating: Eating smaller meals through out the day can help boost your metabolism. Eating smaller meals every 3 hours helps fuel your body. Think about it for a second. I am sure that you know someone who eats all the time and yet are lean and you probably know someone who eats very little and yet the person is fat.

    What should you eat? In every meal, you should attempt to eat lean protein, starchy carbs, and fibrous carbs.

    Lean protein such as chicken, white eggs, turkey, soy, lean meat, fish, tuna, salmon, etc.

    Starchy carbs such as oatmeal, brown rice, red potatoes, yams, etc.

    Fibrous carbs such as fruits and vegetables.

    These tips alone can help you a lot of you follow my guidelines. Remember, losing weight too fast will not be a permanent weight loss. Take your time and commit to eating better and exercising and you will eventually lose that weight.

    Quick tips: Limit your sugar, saturated fat, and hydrogenated fat. Drink plenty of water.

    Good luck

    In your health,

    I have found an average height & Weight chart online. It is found at:

    http://www.halls.md/chart/height-weight.htm

    This is ONLY an average. If you are nearly average then forget the OVERWEIGHT category. The best things one can do to lose weight are to: eat a balanced diet of all food groups at regular intervals, stay away from snacking of "sweets", eat your last meal early enough that you can work off the calories, regular exercise in addition to what you normally do to assist in depleting the fats that are "stored". It is great to be weight conscious but NOT to be obsessed over it. There are groups that can help in many cities if you are needing help, find one of them. Have a great holiday!

    The easiest way to lose weight is to eat healthy and work out as much as possible without working too hard.

    he metabolic powers specific foods have to make your body burn far more body fat.” It is a way of rating foods, primarily based on “how a lot of calories your body is going to burn just breaking down the nutrients each and every time you consume a particular food.”

    Therefore, you are not alone in this battle.

    well you need to go on a diet and start after xmas as you will eat i can guarentee you! my only suggestion is to be less hungry by not eating breakfast and eat a fairly big dinner! that is how i lost weight!

    Let's start by clarifying a couple of things:

    1. weight is not the best indicator of your health (because muscle weighs more than fat, two people of the same height can weigh the same and be drastically different in terms of health).

    2. Body fat percentage is a true indicator.

    3. Fat is burned by reducing overall caloric value.

    4. If you burn more than you consume, you will lose fat (lower body fat percentage)

    5. If you exercise and strength train, you can burn more calories and replace fat with muscle which will allow you to burn calories even when you rest.

    If you are trying to lower your body fat percentage there are literally hundreds of ideas out there. In my opinion, the best way, which has been proven time and time again, is a two part method: Eat right and exercise. First, exercise is a no-brainer. You have to burn more calories than you take in for exercise to be considered exercise. How you do it is worth another answer all to itself. So, that brings us to the Eating Right part. If you understand how your body works, you've got a head start on the world. Food is fuel for the body. Once you've accepted that concept as more important than the idea that food is entertainment, then the rest will be relatively easy. If you are American, and I assume you are, the Nutrition Facts label that you find on all foods bought in the U.S. are the next thing you need to understand. Go grab something from your kitchen (i.e. jar of peanut butter or a bag of chips...anything with a nutrition label). OK, yeah you need vitamins and minerals and all that. But focus on these three items: FAT, PROTEIN, and CARBOHYDRATES.

    Let's take these one at a time:

    FAT is basically divided into good fats and bad fats. The body needs good fats (mono- and poly-unsaturateds). You'll find these in stuff like olives and avocados where the bad fat is minimal if not nonexistent. The bad fats are your saturated and trans fats that you'll find in meats and oils. If you are trying to lose weight, keep these to an absolute minimum. My suggestion (based on a 1500-2000 calorie diet) is to limit yourself to no more than 15g of saturated fat per day. This is hard to do if you're used to eating fast food. It's also hard to do if you drink whole milk, eat cheese (even the 2% variety), and eat fried foods. All of these are high in bad fats. The good news is that you can substitute your diet to eat the very things you like to eat but with better ingredients. If you eat cheese, buy fat free. If you drink milk, buy skim. Slowly take yourself down from whole milk or 2% to 1% before going skim/fat free if the transition is too radical to do all at once. If you eat a lot of ground beef, use the extra lean variety (96% fat free/4% fat), or substitute lean ground turkey instead. Do whatever you have to do to get the bad fat grams down to less than 15 per day.

    PROTEIN: The building block of nutrition (aside from your vitamins and minerals) is protein. You need it strengthen your muscles and it will be essential with your exercise routine. Without protein, you can't build muscle tone or lean body mass. And guess what? Just having lean body mass (muscles) allows your body to burn more calories even when you are sleeping. Therefore, you are able to lose weight (bad weight, that is) just by sleeping. But, you have to exercise!! Don't forget that. You can find foods that are high in protein but also high in saturated fat, so be careful. Stick to poultry (chicken, turkey), fish (tuna is a great source), and beans. Don't fry your meats because if you do, you just added a bunch of bad fat to your otherwise healthy protein filled meal. Instead, grill, broil, or bake. You can do this! Don't forget to exercise to exponentially reap the rewards of consuming protein.

    CARBS. In my opinion, the no-carb diet is crap, because you need carbs for energy, especially because you are exercising! That's right, you can't forget you are supposed to be exercising. The trick is choosing the good carbs. You'll see on your nutrition label Total Carbohydrates and Sugars. Sugars should be kept to a minimum and should be avoided within hours of going to sleep. The calories associated with them get stored (for energy) but are not easily burned when it comes time to burn them. Therefore, it's harder to lose the weight associated with them. That's why it's not good to eat lots of candy, cookies, and ice cream that have a lot of sugar. The other kinds of carbs (complex carbohydrates) are essential. You can get these from grains and potatoes. Good stuff!!

    Now that you have a brief understanding of these three nutrition components, time to get to it. Not as easy as it sounds? That's because, you're human. If you treat your body right (and I mean very right, by limiting your saturated and trans fats, limiting your sugar carbs, and eating plenty of protein), then you deserve a day when you can eat whatever you want. The body has cravings and you should be able to fulfill these cravings IF you can stand to wait until the end of the week. I call this one day of decadence your cheat day. After 12 weeks of exercising and eating right in this manner, you'll get to the point where you don't even crave the bad stuff anymore.

    For more on this method, I encourage you to check out www.bodyforlife.com. The principals I wrote about are spelled out in greater detail there. Consult your doctor before drastically changing any diet or exercise routine. Good luck!
