The best quick weight loss tricks are the simple, all natural four:

10 Easy to follow Tips to help YOU Lose Weight

Dieting is not easy. If it were, we would probably all be thin. Since we are not, here are some tips that successful people use to lose weight so that others can benefit, too. TIP NO. 1: DRINK 8-10 GLASSES OF WATER EACH DAY Okay, for many people this is a big problem. Water doesn't taste all that great generally because water doesn't really "taste" like anything. Drinking water 8 to 10 times each day gets easier the more you actually do it. It is simply a matter of conditioning your taste buds, and yourself, so that it becomes easier to do. Once you get started, you will begin to crave water. To begin with, you should drink a glass of water in the morning first thing, before you eat. This is probably the easiest glass you will drink all day and it will help you remember to drink water all day long. Better yet, why not drink two glasses? If you really cannot bear the taste of water, try using a water purifying pitcher or filter. You can also add a few drops of lemon …

What to Know About Weight Loss Products

There are a lot of weight loss products that offer that fast weight loss results, however, are these really guaranteed?  Could these products live up to their assurance of a fit body? In US, there is an estimated 50 million people who try to lose weigh, unfortunately, only 5 per cent are successful.  One thing’s for sure, beware of fraudulent claims and extreme high cost because there is no magic to losing weight.

·    Magnetic Diet Pills – allegedly flushes out fat, but not.
·    Guar Gum – causes internal obstruction.

·    Eyeglasses that Suppress Appetite – These claims that the projected image on the retina decreases appetite.  No proven fact.
·    Weight loss earrings – through acupuncture, suppresses appetite. There are also examples of weight loss products: Diet drinks t…

And although Easter is over, your bad eating habits may not be and you may struggle to lose that weight. But you can recover from your Easter binge and start eating right and losing weight - here's how:

* Avoid fad diets - Fad diets will only make you pick up weight in the long run as it slows down your metabolism.

In order to have an understanding of how to make the body lose fat, it's important to know how the fat is deposited in the body.

How to Have Weight Loss Discipline

Image
Why is it so hard to lose weight and keep it off? We have all heard that weight loss is just a matter of taking in less calories than we expend. That certainly sounds very logical, but is it really that simple? For example, I had an intention of only eating fruits and vegetables for a day or two, to counteract the recent ‘junk’ food I had been enjoying. This was a solid plan that practically guaranteed a decrease in caloric intake. However, a solid plan doesn’t always mean an easy execution. I figured I would be relatively safe making a trip to the health food store. So my guard against high fat foods was down. When I got to the store, my sensibilities were assailed by a well meaning clerk hawking some freshly made corned beef and cabbage. I could hardly resist the temptation. And that wasn’t the end of it. Once my armour was breached, the temptation of tasty, ‘health oriented’ cookie samples fought for my attention. Once again, I capitulated. My normally strong will power seemed to c…

Weight Loss It's in Your Head

Image
When you consider the weight loss process, the battle waged is mostly in your head.  Should I eat the crumpet  with butter or would it be better for me to have margarine or better yet  have jam. What am I doing eating this crumpet anyway? It's so caloric and filled with saturated fat. I have absolutely zero willpower. I'm such a pig. It's no wonder you will eat that crumpet with the butter and jam on top to quiet that negative self talk in your head. What you need more than a diet is a way to shift all those negative self defeating thoughts to more adaptive, positive self statements. As with most things worth doing, this requires a bit of practice. First, become aware when you're using a negative statement, then determine what about that thought is faulty and finally, replace it with a self defence response or positive. Many people find it hard to change their eating habits until they change their thoughts about food, eating and drinking. By shedding all those distorted  …

Why Can’t I Lose Weight

That’s the question many people ask when their weight loss plan is not working.
Asking yourself why can’t I lose weight? is actually one of the best things you can do for yourself. It says you know that what you’re currently doing is not working for you. You’re at the place where you’re ready to look at alternatives try something different to get a result you want. So why can’t you lose weight?
Here are 3 possible reasons you may not be losing weight and some suggestions on what you can do about it.

1. Medical Reasons Now this is not the same as saying you’re genetically programmed to be overweight. That is hogwash. In fact scientists estimate that even if you do have a genetic propensity to gain weight, your genes only account for 15 to 25% of your current weight. So forget the genetics excuse. But there are medical reasons that some people can’t lose weight. Low thyroid, adrenal exhaustion, insulin resistance and other medical conditions can make losing weight near to impossible. Th…

Achieve Weight Loss at Easter

Image
There is no reason why you can't enjoy chocolate at Easter, or any other time of the year, when you are trying to lose weight.
The trick is to give your taste buds a sweet treat and follow a few simple guidelines to ensure that you don't completely sabotage your weight-loss efforts.

It is important that you choose the choice of chocolate wisely. On average a bar of dark chocolate contains 50 - 60 calories less than a bar of milk chocolate. As well as being higher in antioxidants, the more intense flavour should satisfy your taste buds more easily, meaning you won't have to eat as much.

It can also be a good idea to ask for an Easter egg that's filled with jelly babies rather than more chocolate, for example. Indeed, such offerings are virtually fat free and lower in calories

Beware of constantly nibbling at chocolate eggs, you'll find it's all too easy to polish off the whole bag! Instead, only take a few eggs and place the rest of the bag out-of-reach.
Or bet…

Image
There is a specific ingredient contained within chilli peppers, which gives them their kick, this is called capsaicin. Apparently, how it works is this the particular ingredient blocks the buildup of fat within the body and works together on certain proteins within the body.
