Weight Loss – Response to the Naysayers

Weight Loss – Response to the Naysayers

I posted more articles on the weight loss series yesterday.  Before they were even loaded onto the webpage, it seemed, I got some more emails telling me I was nuts and some others saying I might be nuts but hey nothing else has worked so why not. The one calling me nuts basically said there is no way to lose weight other than cutting calories [...]

Pulling It All Together

Alright if you are here and didn't skip ahead you know four things. Your body processes all the food you eat, healthy or unhealthy and turns some into energy to fill the good productive fuel tank and any extra into fat. Your brain sends signals to pull from the good productive fuel tank first and then the fat stores second. Moving is what [...]

Exercise – oh the evil evil exercise

Exercise – oh the evil evil exercise

Exercise is the real key to weight loss. You can not diet your weight away. No exceptions it just isn't possible. Your body will adjust to the amount of food you eat and you will eventually end up starving yourself. Please don't make me explain again why starvation diets don't work. I hope by now you understand completely why starvation [...]

How Many Calories to Eat

Alright you know by now I am lazy when it comes to losing weight.  I want it to be as simple as possible.  There is an easy way to figure out this answer and there is a hard way.

Starting the Weight Loss Plan

Starting the Weight Loss Plan

Ok the moment I have been dreading ever since I took the pictures. I have three before pictures front, side and rear view....I am not liable for any ill effects caused by looking at the pictures. You have been warned!!! So here are the starting stats for me: Age: 37 Weight: 160lbs Height: 5'2 Measurements: Chest: 36" Waist: 37 [...]

Stop Dieting and Start Eating!!!

I can not stress this enough.  I talked about the two processes you needed to know about in the article here.  You should now understand that you need food to produce energy.  When you deprive your body of food everything slows down.  Not just weight loss but bodily functions, processes and organs.  How are you suppose to function at peak [...]

Water’s Role in Weight Loss

As I set off on my journey to lose some weight one of the first things I will be doing is replacing my soda with water.  I grew up drinking soda, long before it was determined to be so detrimental to our health, and it is a habit I have no desire to break.  However, I love to eat good food as well so as I go through the process of losing this [...]

The Two Processes You Need to Understand

Your body is a series of processes.  Everything that occurs is determined by the signals your brain sends out based on the input your brain receives.  Now there are long winded medical explanations for all the processes going on but you don't need to know them all to lose weight.  There are two specific processes that you need to know and don't [...]

Five Diet Myths You Need to Get Over

With every new and fad diet book that comes out the same myths seem to populate these diets and fuel the hype.  There are probably enough diet books containing these myths to fill a library on their own.  Sometimes we hear it from a friend or a neighbor who swear it is true because they know someone who followed the myth and it worked for [...]

On a Mission to Lose Some Weight

On a Mission to Lose Some Weight

I am about to start a plan to shed about 35 pounds in 2 months.  I know this is very possible and easily obtained (haha nothing really easy about weight loss is there) because I have done it before.  Throughout the years I have been overweight and underweight.  I was blessed, fortunately, with a pretty equal distribution of my weight though so [...]

Exercise

When most people think of exercise they think weight loss. Exercise is not all about losing weight. Exercise should be done to be fit and well. Weight loss is one of the benefits of exercise. There are numerous other benefits, which for some people, are more important than just be the right number on a scale. Whether you are here to lose [...]

Dieting

Most woman cringe when they hear the word dieting. I am the same. I love food and the thought of dieting and depriving myself of the foods I love is horrible. I have set about, over the years, trying to find a way to “diet” and still eat the foods I love. What I have discovered is traditional dieting is a short term solution to a long term [...]
