  • Top 10 Fattest States in America
    By Health Blog on August 15, 2012 | 2 Comments2 Comments  Comments

    America is fat.. morbidly obese in many cases. With a fast food store never far away and junk food companies allowed to aggressively advertise their poison whenever and wherever they want, I’m  surprised America isn’t fatter than it already is. In years to come we’ll look back and wonder how we let these evil companies advertise like they do, just as we now view the now banned cigarette advertising. (McDonald’s fast food restaurants and Coca-Cola fizzy sugar liquids being major worldwide sponsors of the recent London Olympic games just blows my mind!)

    What is Obesity?
    According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention obesity kicks in when your body mass index or BMI is greater than 30. As an example if you are 5’4” or 1.63 meters tall and weigh more than 174 pounds 79 kilograms you are obese. If you are 5’9” or 1.75 meters tall and weigh more than 203 pounds or  92 kilograms you are obese.

    In a CDC study it was found that non Hispanic black people tended to have the highest rates of obesity with 49.5% being obese, Mexican Americans with 40.4% obesity, Hispanics 39.1% obesity and non Hispanic white people being 34.3% obese.

    Top Ten Fattest American States
    Mississippi 34.9% obese
    Louisiana 33.4% obese
    West Virginia 32.4% obese
    Alabama 32.0% obese
    Michigan 31.3% obese
    Oklahoma 31.1% obese
    Arkansas 30.9% obese
    Indiana 30.8% obese
    South Carolina 30.8% obese
    Kentucky 30.4% obese
    Texas 30.4% obese

    I listed eleven states as Kentucky and Texas were equal, so technically it’s the top 11 fattest states ;-)

  • Check your diet plan weekly to reduce fats
    By Health Blog on August 3, 2009 | No Comments  Comments

    We are getting an overwhelming response these days to our articles on this blog. I am happy to see them and they are encouraging us to write more. We were very busy in the last 4 days and couldn’t update this blog very much. Hopefully we will compensate for them in this week. Many of the readers are showing interest in the diet reviews and tips that help you in keeping body fit and healthy. I don’t if you have ever noticed this or not, but the diet we take is little tricky. Most of the time we eat food to satisfy our taste rather than to satisfy our hungry. As long as you don’t realize the difference between these two you can’t control your diet and extra calories. This will be explained in detail in this article.

    diet

    Before you are going to eat anything, just ask yourself if that food can be substituted with water i.e, instead of eating that food, can you fill your stomach with water and get back to your work. Most of the time, your brain says no and forces you to eat heavy caloric valued food which is spicy and tasty. Unfortunately, the right food doesn’t have a good taste like pure water which doesn’t have any taste, smell or color. Force yourself to substitute this food with water even though you don’t like it. This may make you feel discomfort for the moment but at the end of the day you will feel lighter and also happy for not taking fats and carbohydrates which make you lazy and unhealthy.  I don’t ask you to completely be away from burgers and pizzas, you can have them but at a lesser quantity for the future benefits. How many are actually keeping a diet plan of your body? Do you write what you are eating every day and checking the diet at the end of the week?

    Not everything that we put inside our mouth keeps us alive. Sure, our food gives us energy but there are some foods that contribute to a weakened immune system and general deterioration of our body. Don’t take too much of bad fats like packed snacks, bad proteins like too much of sugar, bad proteins like read meat. All these things will damage your body’s key antibodies that will protect you from dreadful diseases. If you want to try some products that will help you in keeping healthy, then you have to do a great search as there are too many Colon Cleanse products available in the present market. All of them are not as good as they advertise. There are a few which will really help you in keeping your body fit and healthy.

    Colon Cleanse

    All we are asking you is to reduce one pizza and a burger from your weekly diet. This may sound simple and easy when you read but when it comes in practice, it is difficult. The habit of postponing the useful activities is the biggest enemy of any human. It is the primary reason for any human of not being a healthy person. Well, we will talk about diet chart in the next week and hopefully we will prepare an excel sheet and upload it for you which can be used by you so that you can keep track of your daily diet. That chart will help you in controlling your diet.

    Coming to the diet reviews, I have come across a good diet review site named web for health. This website has a lot of diet products which may be useful for you. So, have a look at them and make the best use of it.
