The Exercise Factoryoga

Medical science strongly supports the importance of regular exercise. A group of middle-aged men and women followed a fitness program. They showed lower level of blood sugar, fats , cholesterol, and gains in flexibility, strength, and stamina. Longer programs reaped greater benefits such as reduced tensions, improved respiratory capacity, lowered body fat, and increase in one’s sense of well-being.

With regular exercise, the metabolic rate increase, the digestive and circulatory system improve, the heart muscles grow stronger, and the skin acquires glow.

Regular exercise could mean a 5-mile brisk walk a day, swimming, taichi, biking, or yoga asanas. But if you have a heart or uterus problem, jogging is not advisable.

General yoga practice helps combat obesity by toning muscles and enhancing body awareness and willpower, facilitating a more sensible eating pattern. Abdominal contractions prevent and reduce fat bellies and lessen the risk of incurring back disorders.

Alternative Waystai_chi

The Ayurvedas has many recommendations for losing weight. Using lemon juice is a very effective means. This is like going to a juice fasting, which also cleanses your body of all toxins.

On the first day, juice or three pieces of lemon mixed with an equal amount of water should be given. One lemon per day should be added until the juice of 12 lemons is consumed per day. The number should be decreased in the same order until three lemons are taken a day You will feel hungry and weak on the first two days, but after that, your condition will stabilize.

Another formula is using bananas and skimmed milk. The daily diet is restricted to six bananas and four glasses of skimmed milk for a period of 10 to 15 days. Then green vegetables may be gradually added, reducing the intake of bananas from six to four. Continue this diet until you achieve the desire weight level. Bananas are ideal for overweight people as it has practically non sodium.

Base on some recent researches, cabbage has a valuable ingredient called tartonic acid which inhibits the conversion of sugar and carbohydrates into fat. Taking cabbage salad would be one of the simplest and painless ways of staying slim. A hundred grams of cabbage yields only 27 kilocalories of energy, while the same quantity of wheat bread will yield about 240 calories, so you get fewer calories while having a lasting feeling of fullness in the stomach. It is also easily digestible.

Losing the first few pounds is easy as this is only water, but shedding the next ones will be a bit hard. Don’t get discourage by this. A steady weight loss is better than an abrupt one because it stays, provided that you also maintain this with proper food intake. Have a better healthful feeling and “thoughts”

Slimming Naturally

Tons of people worry on how to unload those excess baggage, getting rid of flab – slimming.
Going by today’s standards, to be slim is to be attractive. to look lean and mean with firm muscles is the anxiety which results in making aerobic and other fitness centers thrive as a booming business. Fitness programs with treatments compete for your hard-earned money, all promising to make you shed 20 to 30 unwanted pounds. Fat burners and slimming teas abound in the shelves of health food stores. Those without patience with the programs get an instant liposuction, surgical shortening of the small intestines or sewing of the stomach so to be smaller.

Weight loss actually is not a big problem with which to be burdened. To lose that excess weight is desirable, not just for superficial reason  of so-called beauty standards. Actually, it is quite sad that people see others on the basis of the person within that body.
But be sure to lose that excess weight because having more fat in the body slows one down , invite diseases, and cause fatigue. Please consider that the first reason why one may be over-eating, though. Is it due to some emotional problem, or some glandular disorders? From there you can adopt a program for a more healthy living

Attention to diet is crucial. Your body is the result of your current eating habits. If your body is sickly or heavy on the scale, introduce changes gradually. Changing to a new good diet should not mean making abrupt stressful adjustment. You must be aware of the desirable and undesirable food identity.

Stay away from sweets, salty, fatty processed foods. You don’t have to live on a monotonous unpolished rice and veggies either. Fad diet are not the answer either to obesity or bad health. It deprive the body of essential nutrients and lower the body’s metabolic rate. What is needed is establishing a good ratio of nutrients by choosing good quality foods.

You must be aware of your individual requirements. Many of my friends who work with computers like to nibble while working. What do they nibble? Some salty, sweet processed junk food. It must be hard for them to go a weight control diet program. But still, you must find a healthy substitute to eat like dried fruits and fruit juices.

Work within a sensible framework, and occasional treats can be enjoyed without harm. Eat food as close to their natural state as possble. Add more raw food at the start of the meal, or follow the main meal suggestion twice a week, then three times until you are close to the recomended pattern.

Having fiber in one’s food is essential to anyone even if he/she is not in some trimming down program. Fiber comes from whole plants, wholen grains, vegetables, and fruits. it is bsically composed of the edible plant which forms the plant cell walls. Fiber is neither digested or absorbed in the small intestine; it is digested in the large intestine. Some of the digested products actually get into the body and significantly reduce the production of cholesterol.

Fiber is mainly a source of complex carbohydrates which releases gradual energy level into our blood sugar. Complex carbohydrates also does’nt shoot up our blood sugar leaving our body suddenly depleted with energy, a reaction given of by simple carbohydrates.

According to medical findings, fiber may protect you against cancer, may reduce the risk of coronay heart disease and help control obesity and diabetes. Fiber is essential in fostering healthy bowel movement and protects us against gall-stones, reduces cholesterol levels and ensures better health.

Avoid white bread, white sugar, dyed or artificially sweetened foods and drinks. Avoid meat, if possible, specially red meat. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains like oats, brown rice and wheat. Take multi-vitamins and minerals three times a day. Minimize or avoid intake of artificial salt. Pay attention to trace minerals such as zinc and sulphur which are good for the skin.

Perhaps you have heard that when you are on a diet, one of the basic rules is NOT to starve yourself. Rather, you must eat the proper food that can lessen your weight but still provide energy for your body. To be continued….”thought”
