Amazing Weight Loss Programs – A Diet Has Never Been Easier or Healthier

There are many types of diets for weight loss – LOW FAT, HIGH FAT, and PROTEIN, vigorous exercise (but when you are already overweight – where do you get the energy??) PROTEIN PROTEIN and MORE PROTEIN…..High FIBER, Soup diets, diet pills….how do you pick???

Well, you have to ignore the hype and go for what you have time for and how to fit it into your day. What will give you the energy so you can do some extra walking, take the stairs once in a while, keep up with the kids, more energy to play and love yourself again?

So what is fast and easy and will not take all your energy to count calories, count grams of protein, carbs, or fat? The solution is using the right products and fitting them into your lifestyle.

Now you have to understand to take control of your weight, there are fat, fiber, Protein, and carbohydrates. Fat is pretty straightforward. Fiber is anything that grows out of the ground… mainly fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, and berries. And the important thing to know about fiber is that the acid in your stomach won’t break it down, so when you eat fiber, it fills you up faster and keeps you full longer, Protein also gives you that feeling of satiety, you feel full longer.

And then finally, Carbohydrates are naturally sweet foods or anything made with sugar or flour. If you ever heard that if you eat low-fat or no-fat foods you can lose weight, well, in reality, that’s just half the story. Most people, when trying low-fat diets, go to the store and start reading labels and look for anything that has zero fat. Well, what if you’re someone who loves spaghetti – on the label, it says “zero fat.”

So then you start looking at the spaghetti sauce and it has almost no fat. And then there’s the “not fat” cakes and cookies – and all that stuff. So then people think, “great, I can eat all I want.” They eat almost no fat at all – and end up gaining weight. That’s why you need to know the other half of the story.

If you eat only low-fat foods, most of them are low in fiber and very high in carbs. Because they’re low in fiber you have to eat more to feel full. So what happens when you eat more, is you take in more calories than you need, and sugars and the body stores the extra carbohydrates and calories as fat. That’s the other side of the low-fat diet. Unless you eat low-fat and high fiber, at the same time, you’re not going to lose weight.

Another big mistake is skipping meals. We all have a built-in survival mechanism so when you skip a meal your body preserves/stores your fat in the case of a low shortage of food and your weight loss efforts slow down or stop because your body thinks you are going through a famine.

So when your body thinks food is hard to find, it does two things to protect you from starving. First, it slows your metabolism causing your body to slow down and burn less fat. Second, the meal you eat after you skip a meal will be converted almost entirely too fat and stored – to protect you from starving. So if you skip breakfast, almost all of what you eat for lunch is converted to fat.

We think we’re taking in less food but in reality, we’re causing our bodies to store fat. If you want to lose weight you have to eat at least 3 meals a day on a regular base. So you have to let your body know that there is enough food available so that your metabolism stays up and so that meals are not stored as fat, but rather used for energy.

Now if we look at exercise, most people assume you have to do constant vigorous exercise. To understand exercise you should know about how your body creates energy, one is by burning your excess fat, and the other is by burning blood sugar or glucose. When you’re not doing anything strenuous your body burns fat. So when you’re sitting at a desk, driving a car, working around the house, or even sleeping, your body is burning fat.

But as soon as you increase your level of activity, like when your heart starts beating faster and you have to breathe heavily, your body will stop burning fat and instantly begin to burn blood sugar – because blood sugar can be converted to energy much faster than fat, so anytime your level of activity increases your body stops burning fat and burns only sugars.

And when it comes to exercise, most people trying to lose weight make a big mistake by doing the wrong kinds of exercise. Jogging, bike riding, and aerobics are great for your heart, lungs, and circulation. But they don’t burn fat or condition your body to burn fat.

Now what’s neat about our approach is that you’ll lose weight without exercising. We still encourage people to exercise – after all it’s good for you. But it is not a mandatory part of our approach. Some people find that once they’re losing weight and feeling great – they want to exercise because you start to feel good, our products help with your energy level and overall feeling of well-being.

Two of the best kinds of exercise for losing weight are walking and very light weight lifting. Take a nice walk, every other day, keeping a steady pace, but a pace where you could have a conversation while walking. A Nice steady walk every other day will help to condition your body to burn fat.

Weight lifting should be about getting a couple of dumbbells or small cans, or anything you can grip firmly with a bit of weight to it and lifting slowly and carefully for about about 20 minutes every other day. This builds muscle and muscle burns fat. The more muscle you have, the more fat your body will burn, once you begin to build a little muscle your body will burn more calories and your resting metabolic rate will be higher.

And those are just a couple of reasons that so many people have a hard time losing weight. Our programs are based on personal coaching, accurate information about how your body works, and something called Thermojetics. With our program you will get a personal coach to help you figure it out you will not be left on your own.
