The Liquid Diet Plan

Posted by Saito on July 16, 2009

Hey guys, let’s take a look at a new/old concept…trading solid foods for drinks.

Q & A

WHAT?? Why would I want to trade my solid foods for liquid drinks?

Well obviously to help you lose weight. Water, for instance, when you drink the 8 cups of water you HAVE to drink every day…it cleanses your body of impurities and takes away unneeded fat substances. Imagine…having a constant flow of liquid through your body…(besides needing to constantly use the bathroom lol) can you imagine that coupled with daily exercise, how much weight you could lose??

Okay that makes sense, but I can drink something other then water right? If I don’t I’ll…starve O.o.

Of course you can drink something other then water, milk shakes/fruit shakes for instance. For breakfast, lunch and dinner you make your own milk shake/fruit shake. Just don’t add a lot of sugar to your shakes k? =)

How long should I stay on this liquid diet??

For as long as you wish, this won’t harm your body.

– – – – – – – – – – –

The rest now is up to you, you have to make the right choices. And I repeat, don’t add a lot of sugar to your shakes.

The Top Five Common Eating Mistakes…

Posted by Saito on July 6, 2009

woman-eating-apple

There are five common mistakes people think actually help them lose weight and stay healthy…they couldn’t have made a worse “mistake”; this completely effects “us teens” and our life style, we have to let our parents know what they are mistakenly doing:

1. Truthfully, we can’t tell the good fats from the bad fats.

Alice Lichtenstein, DSc, an American Heart Association spokesperson says, “Most people still don’t get that some fats are actually good for you, You want to avoid saturated and trans fats, but you need more monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. Good sources are fish, nuts, avocados, and soybean and canola oils.”I know, half of that seems to be just a bunch of “yadyada” but still it’s a great source of info all the same.

2. To save money…most adults stoop down to take out.

Now I know it’s just necessary to have take out from a fast restaurant, it’s so convenient. But truthfully, calorie-wise, this fattening-pricey mistake can cost you more then you realize. Karen Weber Cullen, DPH, RD, research nutritionist at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston *pant* says, “People think that supersizing a restaurant meal is a money saver, but it’s not a health bargain if it has way too many calories.” My suggesting…rethink fast-food restaurant strategies =D.

3. Lol some people “imagine” that anything liquid doesn’t have any calories whatsoever…ooo that’s one BIG mistake.

You have to realize (or rather adults realize) that most liquid products DO have some kind of sugar within them…
Judith Stern, ScD, RD, professor of nutrition and internal medicine at the University of California, Davis *GASP* says, “What freaks me out is the amount of sugared soda and juice we drink. I’d like to see all the sugared drinks sent out into space, where they could orbit the Earth forever.” …yeah I know, she is “enthusiastic” about her work LOL. BUT I have to agree with her, ’cause it’s true…sugary soda and juice is not the right choice for any of us =)

4. K THIS is scary…we can’t really tell if were hungry…or not.

Elisabetta Politi, RD, nutrition manager of the Duke University Diet & Fitness Center in Durham, NC says, “If you don’t know when you’re hungry, you don’t know when you’re full, so you won’t know when to stop eating.” Too true, most of us really don’t know what “truly hungry” is…but as teens of course I’m sure we can decipher whether were hungry or just eating for pleasure…=P. Consult your doctor if you have though, a problem, deciphering whether your hungry or not.

5. Most American’s have what is called “Microwave Addiction”…

It means we rely heavily on processed microwavable goods…Jo Ann Hattner, RD, clinical dietitian at Stanford University Medical Center says, “Eating too many heavily processed foods can leave you short on fiber and antioxidants such as vitamin C.” You don’t want to be “missing something” like vitamin C in your diet, especially since we are still just teens and need all the help we can get <.<.

– – – – – – – – – – – – –

Helping your parents correct these "mistakes" will not only help you now, but obviously, later on in your life =D.

Well guys that's it for now, stay tuned for the next update =D.

Stay Away From STRESS: Part 4, Parent/Adult Pressure

Posted by Saito on June 1, 2009

SuperStock_1487R-60632

Ever been hashed by an adult? I’m sure everyone has, sometimes it’s for your benefit sometimes it just makes things worst.

But why exactly does it happen? Well most of the time their just worried about you, wanting to be the best help they can be even when they don’t realize it’s just stressing you out.

Sometimes adults even give out advice (duh), but sometimes you get advice that’s either good or bad. It’s your job to decipher the good and bad advice, try your best to find good advice. Don’t try looking for trouble, sometimes something that sounds like it’s good advice turns out to be even worse then the bad advice.

Most adults are just cranky, why?:

1. Their bodies ache.

2. The economy is falling.

3. They read the news too often.

4. Work is a nightmare.

5. Not enough family time.

6. Have had no vacation time just to chill.

This is my perception of most older adults and why they scold you even on the tiniest thing.

– – – – – – – – – – – –

The best thing for you to do is to try and help them get over their own stresses, that way yours will float away like it never existed. Just be yourself, try to stay calm and handle the situation maturely!

Well guys that’s it for now, stay tuned for the next update =D.

Summer Time: The Top Five Items You Need For Summer Weather

Posted by Saito on May 8, 2009

www.staffordshirefire.gov.uk

Hey guys! I believe it’s time to start preparing for summer weather.

Let’s see…The Top Five Items You Need For Summer Weather are:

1. The most important item to have with you is a water bottle!

water

No need for too much input, just keep a water around whether it’s outside or inside, temperatures cause your body to sweat more often and if your body is low on water that causes dehydration.

2. Sunscreen is a must

sunscreen

You always need at least a little bit of sunscreen when walking outside and absorbing the sunny rays. If you don’t use sunscreen and tend to burn your skin often, that can cause you Skin Cancer later on in life…so try to avoid that if possible πŸ™‚

I also would like to recommend that you buy an Organic brand of sunscreen so that you don’t get any bad chemicals in your system which may cause you more harm then good.

3. A pair of sunglasses (as a normal thing) is even more useful in the summer time

sunglasses

We have to protect our eyes from damage right? So protecting our eyes from UV rays which come from sunlight is in our best interest when playing outside or just being outside for the sake of it.

4. Extra deodorant in the summer time is also very helpful

LiquidDeodorant

K when you sweat more often in summer time you tend to stink a lot more too. Being extra thorough would serve you well :).

5. In case of burns having some Aloe Vera gel on hand would really help

aloe-vera

It really helps when you use Aloe Vera over a burnt area of skin that needs to heal properly, I HIGHLY recommend Aloe Vera gel since I use it often to help heal my skin when it comes to Acne and if I have a burn that’s the first item I reach for :).

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Well guys summer is an awesome time (and so is summer vacation!). I wish all of you guys a great summer and to also ask you guys to keep checking This Teens Weight Loss Plan.com for more updates.

Stay tuned for the next update :D.

How To Combat The Swine Flu: Part 1

Posted by Saito on April 28, 2009

pig

Well guys, guess what? Pigs have taken their revenge on the human race, they have released a new virus…the Swine Flu.

Q & A

I know I heard about that on the news, what should I do?

I read up on the BBC that there are simple ways to protect yourself from the new virus that seems to be attacking at every part of the globe. Here take a look at this list:

What you should do in the current situation at hand.

1. Keep your hands clean. Take a bottle of hand sanitizer with you as an extra precaution.

2. Invest in one of those surgical masks you see doctors wear. Check your local pharmacy. NOTE: If you have the Swine Flu, have someone pick up a mask for you so you don’t spread the virus.

3. Stay in your own zone. Try to avoid too much contact with people.

4. Be careful where you eat and what you eat. I would trust my own food more then food from a fast food restaurant. If you have fresh vegetables, be sure to give them an extra good rinse off before you eat anything.

5. Another thing, try to avoid contact with animals. Especially animals that live near or on farms.

– – – – – – – – – – –

This is a terrible tragedy, so many have already died because of this virus. I wish you all luck and hope you don’t catch the virus. And above all things right now…be careful.

How To Deal With Spring Time Allergies: Part 2

Posted by Saito on April 14, 2009

sneeze-speed

Spring Time allergies suck and it always ends up sending us through the roof. I have always wondered how I can stay away from allergies, how to stop them from causing me breathing difficulties, rashes and so on. The list is very long I could keep going…

Through the years well I’ve found some useful techniques that may definitely help with combating allergies and I hope they will also be able to help you too.

Q & A

You really have something for me? Okay well then what do you suggest?

I have a list of things you can do actually, take a moment and check it out:

1. Drink Plenty Of Water.

In spring time I drink as much water as I possibly can (without over doing it of course) it’s good for me of course and it seems to really help combat allergies (flushing pollen and whatever is in the air out of my system)

2. Stay In Doors.

The next best thing to do is to stay inside when the air is full of pollen outside, try your best to avoid to much contact with nature right now since it’s pollinating.

3. Vicks Vapo Rub.

vicks-730724

I HIGHLY recommend using this product, when it comes to a stuffy nose and hard breathing this will help clear that up for you. Eucalyptus Oil is the main ingredient and it helps clear your sinuses, for my use I say about 95% percent of the time I use it I have instant relief. Repeat I HIGHLY recommend using this product!!

You can get it here: Target.com

And it doesn’t really matter which brand your getting so long as you are getting it, use your best judgment and I’m sure you’ll be fine =D.

4. Conserve Your Energy.

Remember your body needs energy in order to fight incoming pollen, viruses etc. so conserve your energy. Don’t do too much work, try to stay active but don’t over work your self. If your tired take a break your body, is fighting all the nasty particles floating in the air…

– – – – – – – – – – –

I comfort myself by saying “Don’t worry Summer is coming…” in the extreme heat of summer the pollen dies out and everything seems pretty good afterward. Don’t worry about anything, just have patience Spring WILL end it just takes time =D.

Well guys that’s it for now, stay tuned for the next update =D.

Sleep: The Top Five Things That Keep You Awake At Night…

Posted by Saito on April 7, 2009

Do you have problems sleeping at night? Many teens have troubles sleeping at night, let’s take a looks at The Top Five Things that may cause you to stay awake at night…

The Top Five Things That Keep You Awake At Night:

1. Your Mattress.

For many people having an uncomfortable mattress that does not fit their body causes them to stay awake at night…some even need special therapeutic mattresses.

2. Daytime Naps.

If you have constant daytime naps this may cause you to have more energy at night, therefore keeping you awake.

3. Staying Up Too Late.

Some (like me) tend to spend longer nights, causing there bodies to go through energy spikes, shakiness and anxiety. All of this can keep you awake at night.

4. Caffeine Beverages.

If you have a drink or a food item chucked full of caffeine that can definitely keep awake all night long buzzing with unwanted energy.

5. Stress.

Stress can keep you awake at night, if you have a problem and are trying to sort it out in your mind your focus shifts to that singular problem; keeping you awake.

– – – – – – – – –

I highly recommend that if you have a sleeping problem at night, try to sort it out immediately. It’s important for you to get quality sleep so that you HGH (Human Growth Hormones) can kick in and do their job. Try to find the reasons why you are having difficulties sleeping at night.

Well that’s it for now, stay tuned for the next update =D.

Weight Losing Tips: Step 11

Posted by Saito on March 23, 2009

This post will be focused on the determination and focus you will need to make out a weight losing schedule:

^ See how determined she is to climb up the face of that cliff, well that’s the same determination you need to get up every morning and work out.

I admit it, its not fun at first. You feel worn out and dragged out when you first start a work out schedule to burn off those pounds.

But once you get at it, and find your niche for these work out routines you will began to get used to it. So will your body and that will help you get those pounds off.

You can’t quit on what you start, you have to force yourself to workout. But you will enjoy the results if you keep at it, you can even see results within two week…but it depends on your schedule.

Q & A

Wow this sounds rough. What should I do to work off these pounds?

Everybody is in their own situation in life, it’s hard to recommend what exactly to do or what to use when everyone has their own unique lifestyle and home life. But I have to recommend the basic’s, and here they are:

Treadmill

The treadmill is one of the most recommended workout machines out their, it’s a standard issue workout machine.

Stair Steps

You can either use the machine, or you can actually go up and down your stair for ten minutes (when you start out) I am actually going up and down my stairs for twenty-five minutes and I am seeing incredible results so I highly recommend doing this :D.

Bicycling (machine)

You can either use the machine or you can really go bicycling. Its fun my dad loves to bicycle ride and I do as well, I highly recommend this work out routine =D.

Basic Aerobics

This is one of the best ways to lose weight, just basic workout routines. You can learn all about the right routines like jumping jacks, squats etc. here: Turnstep.com

– – – – – – – – – – – – –

I have personally done all of these workout routines, I recommend them all but you don’t need to do them all, just choose the one you think will work best =D.

Well that’s it for now, stay tuned for the next update =D.

Acne: How To Fight Acne…

Posted by Saito on March 16, 2009

I’ve been dealing with acne as long as I can remember, through the years I have found useful items that help me combat acne and they actually work.

Q & A

Okay what do you suggest? What have you found exactly?
1. Well for starters I found using Aloe Vera Gel seems to really help with the process of healing my skin:

Aloe Vera is typically used to heal burns and sooth your skin, I found it can also quickly heal my skin after taking out some of my acne. This is my first technique.

2. My second technique has to deal with baking soda:

Just normal baking soda, take wet baking soda and spread it over the area in need and it should clear it up =D.

3. The one I find the best above all is the sun:

Good old sun exposure is the best way to clear up acne hands down. Just go outside whenever you can for at least 30 minutes, you’ll get some color while your at too =D.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – –

My skin has pores that are large in comparison to other people, so Acne is a very common thing for me. But I know someday after puberty it won’t be as much of a problem. So I wait and use these techniques, post a comment and let me know your own techniques on how to get rid of Acne =D.

Well that’s it for now, stay tuned for the next update πŸ˜€

Weight Losing Tips: Fourth Step

Posted by Saito on January 12, 2009

Check out the next update called Fifth Step

Don’t stay up to late at night, get quality sleep, you will gain energy and wake up earlier in the morning πŸ˜€

Why got to sleep earlier? Well when I’m tired and have no more energy I want to sleep, but sometimes I stay up because I’m finishing either a movie or going to the next stage in a video game. THAT’S NOT WHAT YOUR SUPPOSED TO DO! You need quality sleep and I have learned this from experience, so I now try to get a great amount of sleep at night…not only do you gain energy in the morning BUT the exciting part of getting quality sleep is what happens after one/two hour(s) of rest. HGH (Human Growth Hormone) Kicks in when you are asleep, it helps you grow and prevents aging πŸ˜€ (sweet!). You, again I say this, “gain energy” and give your body the time it needs to recuperate from the other day :D.

I used to stay up till 11:00 PM with my family and that was taking me down…so I started a schedule, let me know what you think of it :D:

1. Eat dinner get extra chores or finish up school work.(normal)

2. After I’m done with that I get comfortable and just chill with my family.

3. If I watch a movie I’ll watch something calming, so I can go to sleep easier.

4. After that it’s normally around 8-9:00 I get a glass of water and go to bed.

THERE, just those four steps. Not taking it to far, just relaxing and when I wake up in the morning I’m energized and ready for another day πŸ™‚

Stay tuned for the step πŸ˜€
