Weight Loss Exercise Program – Dont Shortchange Yourself

When it comes to finding the right weight loss exercise program many people make one huge mistake. They think solely in terms of doing cardiovascular exercises and either don’t do enough weight training, or worse, don’t do any weight training at all.

Some people mistakenly think that they want to burn the fat and the only way to do that is to do tons of cardio. And of course, you do need a full cardio workout in your overall exercise plan, but if you neglect the weight training aspect of your workouts you will really be shortchanging yourself and your overall fitness goals.

A lot of women also make the mistake of thinking that they can only lift very light weights and / or only do a few repetitions of each exercise or they will get bulky. They are so afraid of getting big that they neglect this extremely important aspect of working out.

Let’s set the record straight, while it’s true that women have both estrogen and testosterone in their bodies naturally, the levels of testosterone are only about one seventh of what men have. For a woman to “accidentally” get bulky just by lifting weights would be impossible. The women body builders you see don’t get that way on accident, they work hard at it and treat is like what it is… a full time job.

So, make sure you lift weights as part of your routine. The more lean muscle mass you have the more calories your body will burn all day every day, no matter what you are doing. That is a great side effect. Having nice muscle tone will also make you look trimmer and slimmer, no matter what your weight is.

So you will look thinner at 125 lbs if you have a lot of toned muscle than you would if you didn’t have good muscle tone. When first starting out (after you get your doctors ok) find someone to teach you how to use the proper form, then start with a weight that makes it challenging to finish a full set, one set is between 8 – 12 individual repetitions of the exercise.

The general rule of thumb is that you should be able to finish the set, but just barely. That is how you know that you are using the proper amount of weight. Once you can easily do all reps of one exercise at a certain weight, move up to a higher weight. At first you may not be able to do a whole set at the higher weight, that’s ok. Just do what you can and build on that.

Make each repetition slow and controlled and don’t forget to use proper breathing techniques. If you have never done this before you really should have someone show you the proper techniques in order to avoid injuries.

To get the most out of all your weight loss exercise plans, make sure that you eat right, get plenty of water and rest and incorporate a full weight training routine. You won’t get bulky but you will burn more calories and that may just make you hot.

Better Sex After Weight Loss – Yes Its True

Many people think that there is better sex after weight loss, and for most people, that is true. Even though it is true, it may not be true for the reasons you think. A lot of people think that they will have better sex because their partner will find them more desirable and attractive.

But, in many cases, there is another reason why your sex life might increase. You see sex really is about more than the physical, it’s very much about the emotional and psychological as well. When you lose weight and get in better shape you will often just feel better about yourself and more confidant. It’s that new found confidence that can make all the difference.

You may actually find yourself wanting to have sex more often. You may feel more attractive and desirable. Another reason why you can have better sex after weight loss is that you will be in better physical shape which will, of course, make the actual physical act of having sex easier and less tiring.

Of course, to get to this point you actually have to lose weight and that can present it’s own challenges. The more overweight and out of shape you are when you start, the slower you will have to start, which is ok as long as you do start.

Most people make the mistake of getting too hyped up and thinking they can do it all at once or do it quickly. Few people can live up to that and they don’t make the goals they set for themselves, when they fail they get discouraged and give up altogether. Don’t do that to yourself.

Just start slowly and keep working at it. It’s easy when you don’t plan on making all the changes at once. Just one small change a week or a month can add up, and it is easier to do it that way.

You can also try the same thing when it comes to making changes in your diet. Eating better with such simple changes as eating a few more vegetables or fruit can be a great start.

Look, it’s no big mystery how to lose weight, eat better types of foods in moderation and get more physical activity. Pretty simple, isn’t it?

The biggest thing that you can do to mess yourself up is to expect changes to happen quickly. You will be setting yourself up for disappointment that way. Don’t do it to yourself. Start small and go from there.

If you really want to strengthen the bond with your partner, suggest that the two of you work out together. When you both are physically fit it can actually be kind of hot to be sweating together wearing next to nothing!

You can absolutely have better sex after weight loss, you will be stronger both physically and emotionally. Self confidence can go a long way to helping you feel more desirable and your new body may well help your partner find you more attractive.

Master Cleanse Diet Recipe – Keep It Simple

The master cleanse diet recipe is not at all complicated. After all this very successful and popular diet and cleansing program consists of only 4 ingredients and one of those is water. This diet also goes by other names such as the lemonade diet, the maple syrup diet, and the cayenne pepper diet. Bet you can guess what the ingredients are, can’t you?

Yep, you’ve got it, the ingredients are fresh lemon juice, maple syrup, cayenne pepper and water. The exact proportions will vary depending on whether or not you want to make up a glass at a time or a whole pitcher, I’ll give you the recipe for both later on in this article.

Here is the basic idea of the diet. You will go on a strictly liquid diet for ten days. During that time you will drink the cleanse mixture throughout your day for your ‘meals’. It’s also very important that you drink plenty of water. This is a mistake that a lot of people make. They think that just because there is water in the lemonade mixture that that is enough, it’s not. Drink water during the cleanse.

It’s also very important that you ask your doctor if you can go on this cleanse and diet program. I’m not a doctor and can’t give you any medical advice so make sure to ask the person who knows you and is qualified to extend advice.

Do not beat up on yourself if you fail to make it through the ten day program on your first try. It’s very common to fail. When you’re just sitting around talking about it it doesn’t seem that hard, but anyone who has had to go on a strictly liquid diet before, say for a medical procedure, can attest to the fact that it’s not easy.

If you set a start date several days up to one week in advance, you can give yourself a lot of time to get yourself in the right frame of mind. During this time you can also help prepare your body physically for the challenge by making slight alterations to your eating habits. If you are used to eating a lot of protein heavy, high carb meals you may want to lessen your caloric intake a little bit before the cleanse so the transition isn’t so shocking to your system.

Here is the single serving size recipe:

1/2 Tablespoon each of fresh lemon juice and organic maple syrup. 1/16 of a teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder and 8 ounces of water.

To make a full pitcher so you have the mixture ready when ever you want it here is the recipe:

12 Tablespoons each of fresh lemon juice and organic maple syrup, 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper powder and 60 ounces of water.

Whether you mix it up by the glass or the pitcher the master cleanse diet recipe is very simple and easy to put together. Staying on this liquid only diet and drinking plenty of water for the full ten day term will help you clear out all the nasty toxins from your body and help you shed up to 20 pounds of unsightly body fat. Just make sure you talk to your doctor before you start.

Hoodia Does It Work

Many of us have struggled with our weight at some point in our lives. We all know that it takes discipline to eat right and get enough exercise. The problem is that knowing and actually doing are two different things. There can be many reasons why it’s tough to get all the exercise we need and / or eat right, difficult but not impossible. If you were looking for something that may be able to help you achieve your goals and were thinking of using a supplement, your next question would probably be: Hoodia does it work?

As with most things, everyone has their own opinion. If you ask 100 people you’d probably get about 100 different answers. The fact is that most people will get some help with their weight loss efforts by using Hoodia, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t have to do anything, which is the mistake that many people make. No matter how great a supplement is you will still need to get plenty of exercise and eat properly.

There are three main things that Hoodia can do to help you lose weight:

1. Hoodia has a compound that sends a signal to your brain telling it that you are full and don’t need any more food. That trigger can help you eat far less without feeling like you are being deprived. A recent study took a group of obese people, half who were given Hoodia and the other half were given a placebo, to monitor the effectiveness of the Hoodia supplement.

The patients were told they could eat as much as they wanted and they weren’t exercising, just eating and relaxing. After about 2 weeks the patients who were taking the Hoodia supplement were taking in an average of 1000 calories less per day and had lost weight compared to those who were only taking the placebo.

2. The second benefit of Hoodia is that it has been reported to stop food cravings altogether. Many people will say that any supplement that helps control hunger really won’t work for them since they eat because they are bored, feeling down, or something just looks good… in other words they eat even when they’re not hungry. If that describes you than you’ll be pleased to know that Hoodia can help lessen your desire to eat all the time and not just control your hunger. Of course, this effect hasn’t happened to everyone so you would have to try Hoodia first to see if it will work for you too.

3. If Hoodia can help you stop ‘binge eating’ or just grabbing the closest thing because you are either hungry or bored, than it will be easier for you to limit your food intake to just those things that are healthy. That is the one component that can make a big difference in your weight loss goals.

If you want to lose weight you might as well get all the help you can to make permanent, healthy changes. So if you’re asking : Hoodia does it work, the answer would be yes, for most people it works very well and it will very likely work for you too.

You should consult your personal health care provider, prior to taking any weight loss supplement.
