  • HCG diet and weight loss Technique
    By Health Blog on September 19, 2009 | 5 Comments5 Comments  Comments

    Every day the food that we consume has excess fats and carbohydrates than that is sufficient for daily work. Unfortunately, the tasty and spicy food will have high levels of bad fat and they don’t have proper proteins. Our digestive system and immune system are not powerful enough to melt the dangerous fats. If you don’t force yourself and do some kind of physical work, in a very few days you will become more cheeky with excessive weight and imbalanced posture. You will turn yourself into a good fat chicken that can barely do his own works. I am not frightening you by saying this but I want to share this information so that you can act early and save yourself. According to MSNBC,  four out of ten patients developed complications by undergoing   obesity surgery within first 6 months from the date of surgery.

    If you are looking for some good solution for treating your obesity try the low calorie diet formulae. I have recently seen a diet and weight loss center that are using low calories food and naturally produced HCG hormone in humans. Unlike many medical centers, HCG diet is promising that you don’t require taking additional drugs which sometimes causes side effects. Their program is tested over 1000 of obesity persons and supervised by eminent doctors. HCG is a medically supervised program built around a low calorie diet coupled with small dose of a hormone that can help stimulate the metabolism. This is a simple inexpensive, natural treatment. There will not be any gastric problems.

  • Be your own dietician

    There are very few things in life you have control over in, what goes in your mouth is certainly one of them. Keeping track of your diet is important if you want to remain healthy and have a good figure.

    The basis to any good diet plan is avoiding calories. The high protein diet, vegetarian diet, low calorie diet, cookie diet, liquid diet, etc all tell you clearly to avoid calories at all costs. Calories include all fatty foods, so what you need to do is avoid junk food, fizzy drinks, cheddar cheese any thing with a lot of oil and sugar.

    Calorie counts are given behind most products. When you go shopping you need to pay attention to what this calorie count reads. In order to lose weight you need to eat fewer calories per day than your body needs. To lose 1lb a week you need a negative calorie balance of 500 calories per day. To lose weight at 2lb a week you need to reduce your calorie intake by 1000 calories a day. So the first thing you need to do is to find out what your calorie intake is. There is a simple formula to calculate your average calorie needs called the Harris Benedicts formula:

    Diet

    The Harris-Benedict formula (BMR based on total body weight)

    The Harris Benedict equation is a calorie formula using the factors of height, weight, age, and sex to determine basal metabolic rate (BMR). This makes it more accurate than determining calorie needs based on total bodyweight alone. The only variable it does not take into consideration is lean body mass. Therefore, this equation will be very accurate in all but the extremely muscular (will underestimate caloric needs) and the extremely over fat (will overestimate caloric needs).

    Men: BMR = 66 + (13.7 X wt in kg) + (5 X ht in cm) – (6.8 X age in years)

    Women: BMR = 655 + (9.6 X wt in kg) + (1.8 X ht in cm) – (4.7 X age in years)

    Note: 1 inch = 2.54 cm.
    1 kilogram = 2.2 lbs.

    Example:
    You are female
    You are 30 yrs old
    You are 5′ 6 ” tall (167.6 cm)
    You weigh 120 lbs. (54.5 kilos)
    Your BMR = 655 + 523 + 302 – 141 = 1339 calories/day

    Exercise is necessary to maintain a good physique. It burns your carbohydrates then tones your muscles. An average adult requires a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise a day. Along with exercise rest is also very important your body needs eight hours of sleep a day. The body is like a machine it consumes energy which it gets from food for it to work properly it needs eight hours of sleep.

    Some helpful tips:

    • A simple technique to loose weight is to correct the way you breathe, it is scientifically proven that deep breathing exercises can decrease your weight loss by a staggering 30 pounds in two months. In the process you also oxygenate your brain properly, leaving you fresh and energized.
    • Avoid animal fat and butter. Theses are a huge source of carbs in our lives. Try to use substitutes like olive oil and fish oil.
    • Drink green tea. It controls your cholesterol levels, prevents cardiovascular diseases and cancer.

People in the desert area started eating this cactus like food to ease their hunger pains and felt full after consuming it.

    Due to this further experiments were done on the Hoodia plant and scientist recognized the potential of a new apatite suppressant in it. The first experiments were done on rats and they were fed the hoodia plant and the rats stopped eating after sometime. The scientist found this odd as rats are animals that never stop nibbling but after being fed with this plant they didn’t touch the food given to them. And becomes of this research the scientist were able to extract and isolate the unknown molecule present in the plant which gave the feeling of fulfillment and it was named P-57

    This ingredient of the hoodia plant was the best in suppressing the appetite in an effective way. When our blood sugar level decreases the brain senses this and sends out the signal which actually makes us feel hunger pangs. And scientist found that the ingredient P-57 sends out the same signal to the brain which in turn fools the brain in thinking that the blood sugar levels are raised and stops hunger signals being sent to the brain. This results in less consumption of food as the feeling of fullness is onset and in this way we stay away from food.
