    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.

  • Not Every Exercise Helps You to Lose Weight!
    By Health Blog on September 5, 2009 | No Comments  Comments

    Many people who consider themselves overweight and desperately want to lose some weight, are under the impression that doing sit-ups and crunches will help their purpose. But the reality is just the opposite; sit-ups and crunches do no good to weight loss patients.

    If you find this idea hard to digest, then you should enquire into the basic purpose behind doing such exercises. Athletes and bodybuilders do sit-ups in order to build their body muscles not to reduce them.

    Working out will not necessarily help you lose weight

    Therefore, if you want to reduce your body weight then stop wasting your time with such exercises. There are other ways to lose weight. For example, you can start burning your body fat; it is not as hard as it may sound as your body naturally wants to burn fat.

    The key is to modify what you eat and how much you eat. If you eat more food than what your body burns, then you are going in the wrong direction. However, changing your diet plan does not mean that you should start eating only boiled and tasteless vegetables. In fact you can continue your normal diet as long as you learn when to eat.

    The timing of your meals is very important; those who eat less but at frequent intervals find it hard to lose weight. Observing moderation in your diet will definitely quicken the pace at which you get slimmer.

    In today’s busy world, every second person you meet has his or her share of woes and foes. The modern lifestyle exerts so much pressure on our nerves that we end up suffering from hypertension.

    Experts mainly divide the causes of hypertension in two categories; those which are out of our control and those which can be controlled be putting in some effort. There are some undeniable facts in our lives which we don’t like and which cannot be changed no matter what we do. Our growing age, our looks, our financial position can cause us severe attacks of hypertension. But there is no need to worry as there are even more causes that can be controlled. Many people think that smoking can cause damage to their lungs, but there are more reasons to quit it as it also causes high blood pressure.

    It has also been observed that on average those people who are overweight also have high blood pressure as they are constantly worrying about finding new ways to lose weight. In fact, hypertension aggravates their situation and their medication stops having its effects. If you want to ease your hypertension problem then you should direct your efforts from staying away from smoking and alcohol.

    Doctors also suggest that potassium ans some other important nutrients also help decrease blood pressure, as their scarcity in the body is one of the causes of hypertension.

    So, rather than taking good-for-nothing pills to sort your hypertension, you better start addressing problems which are its cause. By adopting regular exercise, refraining from smoking and taking healthy diet you can considerably lower your blood pressure.
