Weight Loss Diary 14

April 4 thru April 9.

On Friday I weighed in at 183 pounds (90.5 kilo's) and that is slightly up on last week. It is not a problem because last week was a distorted figure due to being unwell and not eating very much anyway. One of the things I have learned during this weight control period is never to become upset if the scales seem to indicate a poor week. The reason for this is that when you go into a weight loss program you have to take the mindset that "I am what I measure, not what I weigh." With my waist belt two notches slimmer than when I started there are no complaints.

Those that have followed this series of articles from the start will know that I only diet on the condition that I give up no food that I like.

During the past week I concentrated on diet and ate no bread or pastry products on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Bread is my greatest weakness; having a local baker who produces the most magnificent bread doesn't help the weight loss program. Hence the reason for dropping bread for three days; it reaffirmed my commitment in my own mind.

 

This includes bacon sandwiches, desserts, ice cream and just about anything else. What I do is give up one thing each day and leave a space on my plate where that item would normally be. This removes one of the biggest problems that all dieters face - the temptation to go off of a rigid diet due to the temptation of foods that they love. There isn't a single person I know of that can't give something up for a day when they know they can return to it next day.

 

In the western world most inhabitants eat far too much. The average adult body requires 2,000 calories each day to function normally; we tend to eat around 3,500 calories each day. This translates to an excess intake of 10,500 calories each week. One pound of body weight is equal to 3,500 calories so that excess eating amounts to three pounds each week weight gain. It is true that you can exercise the excess calories away and if you work in a heavy laboring role in an iron smelter you probably will. But do you spend eight hours each day in that type of environment?

 

By having a space on each plate you soon learn serving size discipline and that is what causes most weight problems - eating too much per serving. Remember it takes about twenty minutes for the your stomach to get the message to your brain that you've eaten enough. It is what we continue to consume during this critical twenty-minute period that is our enemy. Maybe serving smaller portions taking a twenty minute break between courses will help you.

There is Only One Healthy Way to Weight Loss

 

The Internet and our bookstores are filled with literature full of spectacular claims and quack formulas, all shouting, "Lose those extra pounds the fast, easy way". But the truth is (unless you like to be fooled at the expense of your own health) there is only one safe and effective way to achieve the correct weight and to keep it at that figure. That way is to follow a balanced nutritional program, and to follow it consistently. To do that means changing your way of eating and implementing self-discipline. But first you have to make up your mind that you want to do it, and then do it. And then stick to it.

 

Seven Rules for Getting Your Weight Down and Keeping it Down

Once you have given yourself a powerful incentive, and have decided, "I will get my weight down and keep it down," then the following rules will help you:

 

1. Follow a menu plan and use dietary supplements.

2. To curb your appetite, nibble a few low-fat hors d'oeuvres a little while before mealtime. (This raises the blood sugar level and takes the edge off your appetite.)

3. Eat a substantial breakfast and a small lunch.

4. Try to have small servings of the food you eat.

5. Avoid second helpings.

6. Forego dessert if it is high in calories or fats.

7. To know exactly where you stand each day, be a calorie counter, a serious one. Use a table of foods and caloric values.

The Glycemic Index and Weight Loss Explained

Not so long ago, the media reported that we should reduce our fat intake for health reasons. Consequently, carbohydrates came under the spotlight and a new trend developed: eat less fat and fill up on carbs. Carbohydrates may be low in fat, but eat too many and the excess calories is readily and easily converted by your body into fat. Given that most people think only of carbohydrates as starchy foods such as bread and pasta, the new trend resulted in rapidly expanding waistbands! Fortunately, fruit and vegetables are also carbohydrates - commonly known as 'complex' carbohydrates.

 

By glancing at the following table that shows the total number of calories needed daily for a man (or woman) of average weight and height at various ages, you will be surprised to see how much you really overeat. You will observe also that the calory requirement declines with age. Thus a man who is 5 feet 10 inches tall and has the normal weight of 150 pounds, requires 2020 calories between the ages of 14 and 15, but only 1600 when he is 60. Similarly, a woman of average height (5 feet, 2 inches) and weight (125 pounds) requires 1600 calories when she is 14, but only 1260 calories when she is 60.

 

These re the 'good guys' because they are slowly digested and help to reduce hunger and keep blood sugar levels on an even keel. This is ever so important for people trying to maintain or control their weight. Whenever blood sugar levels drop too low, this very often is a powerful trigger sending you into the cupboard in search for sugar or starchy carbohydrates. Good carbohydrates are easy to spot. They are the vividly coloured fresh fruit and vegetables such as peppers, carrots, tomatoes and spinach.

 

The Glycemic Index, otherwise known as GI, is a measurement that can help us differentiate between carbohydrates and choose those that have the most hunger control and the greatest potential to maintain blood sugar levels. The GI is a system that indicates how fast a particular food will trigger a rise in blood sugar levels. A food with a high GI will cause a rapid rise in blood sugar while a food with a low GI will create a slower rise.

 

The GI runs from 0 to 100 and uses pure glucose as a reference point, with the maximum value of 100. For example, a banana has a GI score of 62, foods between 55-70 are mid-GI and foods over 70 are considered high GI. Low GI Apples (39), oranges (40), pears (38), soy beans (15), kidney beans (29), lentils (29), porridge (49), wholegrain rye bread (41), corn on the cob (35), peanuts (15).

High GI White bread (70), French bread (95), white rice (70), baked potatoes (85), mashed potatoes (90), cooked carrots (85)

Glycemic Index Facts Foods only appear on the GI if they contain carbohydrates.

 

Meat, chicken, eggs, fish and cheese are not given a GI value as these are sources of protein. However, processed meats such as sausages may be included because they contain flour which is a carbohydrate. Low GI foods can help control your appetite by creating a fuller feeling for longer after eating which is good news for weight management. Fats and protein slow down the absorption of carbohydrates, whilst the GI of foods can be further affected by cooking, processing, ripeness and variety. This makes it difficult to accurately rate the GI of a typical meal. Low GI foods can be high in calories. For example, a cup of kidney beans is approximately 215 calories, yet 1/2 cup of peanuts is approximately 450 calories!

 

High GI foods are useful after exercise when muscle stores of sugar need to be quickly restored. A typical balanced meal should provide a mixture of foods including fats, proteins and carbohydrates. By including low GI foods with each meal, the body takes longer to absorb the carbohydrates, which helps to slow overall absorption and keep blood sugar levels steadier between meals.

Weight Loss Recipe: Curried Chicken and Mango Salad 

 

Losing weight doesn't have to be boring when you focus on bright, colourful meals. What does this mean? Simply by making sure your plate reflects a range of colours, you'll naturally create more balanced and healthful menus. Not everyone has the time or the patience to count calories, but assessing the colours on your plate is something anyone can do - and it only takes an instant!

 

Why is colour important? Many fatty and caloric foods, such as dairy products and startchy carbs, are beige or brown. When there are too many of these drab colours on your plate, weight gain is almost certain. That's because these beige foods often are high in calories and can leave you feeling hungry later. A cup of beige or brown beans can be over 200 calories....but a cup of red or green vegetables is under a hundred! Add fresh greens, deep purple-reds and bright yellow-orange to a meal, and water the nutrient content go up, while calories go down! Plus, you'll get more enjoyment from eating when there's a variety of colours and flavors on your plate.

 

Ingredients:
3/4 cup plain yogurt
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 cups cooked chicken, cut into small pieces
1 cup peeled and cubed mango

 

Directions:
Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl and stir well.
Add chicken and mango and toss gently to coat.
Arrange dark green lettuce leaves around a serving bowl and spoon mixture into bowl.
For extra crunch, serve with a side dish of red and green bell pepper, romaine lettuce, chopped celery and cucumber.

Weight Loss Advice For Men

Introduction
If diet and weight are as important to health and wellbeing as experts believe, American men need to make changes to what they eat and how often they exercise. They are too overweight and suffer years of ill-health despite the fact that per capita health funding is the highest in the world. The statistics make interesting reading. First, an estimated 27.7 percent of American males aged 20-74 years are obese. By comparison, obesity affects 19 percent of Australian men, 12 percent of French men and only 3.6 percent of Japanese. Second, the average life span of American men is 74.9 years, (Japan 77.8) of which an estimated 8 years are lived in ill-health (Japan 6.5). Also significant are the negative health effects of the American diet on male immigrants from countries such as Japan, who typically experience a noticeable rise in diet-related illness such as obesity and heart disease.

 

Health Effects of Obesity In Men
Obesity has several adverse health effects. The most serious dangers include hypertension, heart disease, cancer and diabetes, although joint problems and psychosocial hardship can also be very distressing.

 

Obesity is a serious risk factor for hypertension, which affects 7 out of 10 obese men, and develops as follows. As the amount of fat tissue in the body increases, the heart is forced to pump more blood around the body in order to meet the extra demand for additional oxygen and nutrients. As this extra blood passes through the arteries, it increases pressure on the arterial walls, leading to higher blood pressure. Hypertension, which is sometimes referred to as "the silent killer", is a significant contributor to cardiovascular disease.

 

Obesity is also classified as a major risk factor for heart disease, with almost 70 percent of diagnosed cases occurring in obese patients. The prevalence of atherosclerosis (clogging of the arteries) is 10 times higher in obese men compared to those who are not obese. This type of coronary artery disease occurs when fatty deposits build up on the walls of arteries that supply the heart, reducing blood flow and increasing the risk of heart attack.

 

Although the link is not fully understood, there is a clear association between obesity in men and an increased risk of colon and prostate cancers. It may be due to specific eating habits, such as overconsumption of red meat allied with an insufficiency of antioxidant-rich foods like fresh fruit and vegetables. The prevalence of prostate cancer in American males is 18.7 per 100,000, compared to 10.2 in Japanese men.

 

Obesity is the major cause of type 2 diabetes. Almost 8 out of 10 type 2 diabetics are obese. Even mild obesity significantly increases the risk of diabetes. Weight gain after the age of 18 is a particular contributor. Obesity is also closely associated with insulin resistance, high blood sugar levels and pre-diabetes.

 

Abdominal Obesity Even More Dangerous
While obesity in general is a major predictor of serious ill-health in men, abdominal obesity - excess fat around the stomach - is an added health risk, which is bad news for men as they typically store fat around their middle. Men under stress are doubly at risk as stress triggers the release of the hormone cortisol which appears to stimulate fat storage around the stomach and abdomen. Abdominal obesity is one of a number of interlinked conditions (the others being high cholesterol, high blood pressure, insulin resistance, high levels of inflammatory and clotting components in the blood) that comprise the condition known as metabolic syndrome. This disorder has been identified as a complex risk factor for cardiovascular disease. An estimated 1 in 3 of overweight or obese men have metabolic syndrome.

 

If you feel hungry in between these meals try eating some fruit or cereal. This step will not only help you lose weight but you will notice that you will have so much energy unlike before. Thirdly, Exercise. When I say exercise I don't mean you have to go to the gym everyday or spend hours jogging. What you need to do is find at least half an hour each day when you can go for a brisk walk. This could be on your way to work or coming home from work. During your lunch break. Everyone can find half an hour a day for a walk if they really want to. Try walking at a pace that you can feel your heart beating this is the zone you need to be in.

 

Health Benefits of Modest Weight Reduction
Although untreated obesity may have serious health consequences, even modest weight loss can bring noticeable health benefits. For example, a weight loss of as little as 10-20 pounds can eliminate the need for hypertension or type 2 diabetes medication. In addition, it can raise HDL cholesterol (the good blood-fats) reduce LDL cholesterol and triglycerides (the bad blood-fats) and thus reduce the risk of heart disease. Even so, the more weight you can lose in a steady sustained way, the greater the health improvements, especially if you can reduce the amount of fat around your middle.

 

Diet Advice For Men
A nutritious calorie-controlled diet is the foundation for lasting weight loss. And don't worry about cutting down on junk food. In my experience, a person's appetite for high-fat or high-sugar foods falls dramatically within a couple of weeks of healthy eating. So if you want to lose weight but can't enjoy a meal without a huge slab of fatty red meat, a large helping of mayo, or a bag of tortilla chips, try switching to a healthier diet for 2 weeks and see what a difference it makes to your taste buds.

 

(1) Improve Your Health And Save Money
Instead of simply cutting calories and thinking "I must diet", make a point of choosing healthy foods and think "I want to eat healthily". You may even motivate yourself by focusing on the reduced health insurance costs you will achieve by getting into shape.

 

(2) Personalize Your Eating Plan
There is no single diet plan that fits every man. Moreover, eliminating all your favorite foods is not a winning weight loss strategy. As long as your regular daily diet is calorie-controlled (1500-1850 calories) and contains enough healthy foods, you should be able to include a few treats without interfering with your weight reduction. If the idea of joining Weight Watchers doesn't appeal, customize an online diet plan or seek an individualised eating plan from a registered dietitian.

 

(3) Healthy Eating Guidelines For Men
As a general guide, choose foods which are low in fat - especially saturated or trans-fats - low in sodium, and less refined. To be more specific, eat at least five daily servings of fruits and vegetables - more is better. Also, eat a wide variety of both, because different fruits and vegetables contain different nutrients. Eat whole grains such as brown rice and whole wheat bread rather than white rice and white bread. Whole grain foods are richer in nutrients and higher in both soluble and insoluble fiber compared to more processed products. Their extra fiber content means they help to maintain healthy blood glucose levels, which reduces the risk of appetite swings and cravings. Go easy on fat. Enjoy low fat dairy products - remember, full-fat cheese is a huge source of saturated fat - and don't add extra fat to food in the form of mayo or sour cream. Stay away from chips and other high-fat, high sodium snack foods.

 

(4) Men Who Enjoy Red Meat
Red meat, like beef, lamb and pork, is highly nutritious. Unfortunately, it's also one of the main sources of saturated fat - the type implicated in atherosclerotic heart disease. If you enjoy red meat, make sure you remove all visible fat before eating, and limit your intake to 3-4 3-ounce servings per week. Fish is a healthy alternative protein source, especially oily fish like mackerel, herring and salmon, as is skinless chicken and turkey.

 

(5) Eating Out For Men
If you are serious about losing weight, be extra-choosy when dining out or ordering take-out food. Here are some important tips. (1) Do not order deep-fried food. (2) Look for light appetizers, such as salads, non-creamy soups, fish platter. (3) Avoid entrees with sauces. If necessary, ask for them "on the side". Choose plain fish, broiled lean steak, or tomato-based pasta. (4) Make sure half your plate contains vegetables, without added oil or butter. (5) For dessert, choose any fresh fruit dish, and if offered cream say No. If these suggestions are too arduous, it may be best to skip eating out until you feel more confident.

 

(6) Men Who Enjoy Alcohol
For many men, giving up alcohol is a complete No-No. So let me give you some facts and you can choose accordingly. To begin with, alcohol contains zero nutrition. In addition, its calorie content is quite high - about 7 calories per gram. Drinking one regular Martini per day adds up to about 58,400 calories per year - the equivalent of about 16.5 pounds of body fat. One beer a day amounts to nearly as much. A better option is one 4oz glass of wine a day, which contains about half the calories of a Martini. Another problem to consider if you are male, is the contribution that alcohol makes to your fat stomach. In my experience, overweight drinkers who give up alcohol experience an immediate reduction in their stomach size, which is very good news for their health.

 

Weight Reduction Exercise For Men
Men typically do not find it easy to incorporate regular physical exercise into their daily schedule. More than 50 percent of American men do not take enough physical activity. Which is not good news because the medical benefits of regular exercise are compelling. Keeping active is one of the most effective methods of protecting ourselves against serious disease, and maintaining a good quality of life. This introduces the basic male dilemma. In order to achieve a comfortable standard of living for himself and his family, a man typically has to spend extra hours working instead of exercising. But by not exercising he runs a much higher risk of serious disease, a crippling rise in insurance bills, as well as an illness-prone retirement.

 

No easy choices here, I'm afraid, although the rational decision must be to make exercise a higher priority. This is particularly true for men over 40. For men who really want to lose weight, I suggest you first see your doctor for a quick check-up. Then, if all is well, I advise you start with 45 minutes/day of light exercise. Do this for 2-3 weeks or until you notice obvious benefits such as improved breathing, sleeping and appetite. Then gradually increase the duration and intensity of your training program up to 60 minutes a day. The best way to avoid overstrain is to loosen up with stretches at the beginning of each exercise session, and wind down with stretches afterwards.

 

Improved Lifestyle For Men
Quitting smoking is the top priority for any man with weight-related health problems. Another essential improvement is stress reduction or at least better stress management. This is because any stress which leads to a feeling that life is out of control, is a major contributor to disordered eating, excessive alcohol intake and disease, as well as family problems. Moving to a less stressful job, reducing your work schedule, or taking regular physical exercise are useful ways to reduce stress, and will definitely assist weight loss and general health. Spending more time with your family is also a great stress reliever.

Natural Weight Loss Exposed!!!

If you're reading this article you must have asked yourself this question many times: 'Why can't I lose weight?' Well I hope this article gives you the answer's you're seeking and also motivates you do never give up until you've achieved what you want to achieve. Before we begin I want you to forget about everything you've read or done in the past about losing weight. Treat this as a new beginning. Let me tell you a bit about myself. My name is Adam and I'm 26 years old. For the early years of my life into my teenage years I struggled to keep my weight under control. This made my years at school and college a living hell and my self-esteem dropped to zero. As for my social life it was non-existent and I became a recluse and only left the house if I had no other choice.

 

The lifestyle I was leading made the problem worse and now looking back it was a never-ending cycle. I would feel low and depressed so I would comfort eat which made me feel better for a bit and then when I felt low I would eat again and so on and so forth it continued. Like many people who are not happy with their weight, I looked at all the different types of weight loss diets, pills and extreme measure's like surgery. But to be honest I couldn't see myself doing any of them, whether it was because I knew I wouldn't be able to stick to a diet or was scared of taking pills and surgery I don't know. I needed something easy that didn't seem like a chore and maybe even something I would enjoy doing.

 

Now, that's enough about my background. I want to talk about how I turned my life totally around from a lonely and fun less life to waking up every morning and looking forward to the day ahead. The first thing I had to do was reprogram my mind. The power of the mind is totally amazing and you need to harness that power if you are ever to achieve your goals. In order to reprogram your mind you need to clear a few things up first.

 

1: You need to understand life is too short to care about how others perceive you. This way you won't try to lose weight in order to impress people and their irrelevant remarks won't dampen your spirits.

2. You need to find some motivation for losing weight. Having a goal always helps i.e. Do you want to participate in an event e.g. charity run, marathon etc, do you want to get ready for someone's wedding or just feel and look good.

3. I want you to close your eyes and imagine what you want yourself to look like. Imagine yourself walking down the street or in town on a beautiful sunny day as the new person you WILL become.

 

Look how confident you are and how people are attracted to you. While doing this visualisation just take nice deep breaths. This little exercise, which only takes a minute or two worked absolutely brilliant for me and has to be tried to be appreciated. Best time to do this is in bed just before going to sleep. Now those 3 steps above are the crucial building blocks for our success, you can say the foundations of this amazing journey. Now that your mind is ready you need to decide on how to tackle the next issue which is what routines are not helping you at this moment and what we need to incorporate to improve the situation.

 

To do this you have to ask yourself some important questions and above all be honest. First obvious question is 'why are you over weight?' this could be some kind of emotional issue, lack off exercise, bad diet or lifestyle etc. It is important that you pinpoint the exact cause, it may even be more than one thing. You need to write these down on a piece of paper, as they will need to be addressed one by one. To discuss emotional issues is a very sensitive subject and one that is unique to an individual. As I have no experience or training in that area it's one topic that I won't discuss in this article.

 

The best advice I can give is that the issue will need to be resolved especially if it's a barrier between you and your goals and I would therefore encourage you to seek advice from trained professionals. My personal weight loss problem was due to a lack of exercise and bad diet that equals a very bad lifestyle. These issues are a lot easier to resolve. This leads me on to the next question. Are you willing to change your lifestyle and how determined are you? I want you to imagine yourself continuing on the path you're on at the moment and imagine where you will be in one years time from now if you continue this way.

 

What do you see?

Are you happy with yourself?

If not what are you going to do about it? You need to seriously as yourself these questions, write them down on a piece of paper and answer them honestly. This step alone will help you enormously. Ok, by now you have reprogrammed your mind and removed all the past notions about weight loss. You have decided on a motivation for why you want to lose weight that will always encourage you to never give up.

 

You have imagined how you want to look like and that's what you need to aim for in everything you do. Now let's look at what you need to do on a daily basis in terms of the physical aspects. My weight loss plan had 4 core essentials that I did everyday which were easy and can be followed by anyone. If all you do is just copy these 4 steps I can guarantee that in a couple off weeks you will see an enormous difference in yourself. Bear in mind the healthiest way to lose weight is by a few pounds (2-3) a week gradually. Firstly, cut out all snacks. The major reason we put on weight is because all the snacks we eat between or as replacements for meals contain so many calories that we can't burn them off and so they turn to fat. This step is a lot easier than you think. Secondly, have three healthy meals a day. Have a breakfast, lunch and dinner.

 

This will make you feel so fit and healthy after only a couple off weeks and you'll love and look forward to your walks. Fourthly, most people won't tell you about this one. Make sure you don't eat before going to bed. The latest you want to eat is 2 hours before going to bed. If you could increase that time even more that would be better for you. The reason is that your body clock slows down near bedtime and any food you eat will not be broken down as much as during the day. This food is also not burnt off and just turns to fat. If you could have a walk after your last meal that would be even better for you. There you go, that's how I turned my life around. Following the steps both mental and physical you will transform the way you look and feel in the weeks and months ahead.

 

As a final note always set yourself a weekly target and write it down. Try to improve on it week on week i.e. how many pounds do you want to lose this week, how far or how long do you want to walk etc. This will keep you focussed and ensure that you don't get bored and you will also be able to monitor your progress, which will give you encouragement. But above all NEVER give up, because you can achieve your dreams and goals and don't let anyone tell you that you can't. For my report on how I naturally lost 28 pounds and 3 pants sizes in 3 weeks visit my website natural weight loss.
