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.

How To Take Advantage Of Summer Weather And Lose Weight

Posted by Saito on May 18, 2009

summer_fun

I find that I have to take certain steps and plan ahead for summer time workouts, mostly because of the hot weather. I’ll explain why:

1. Hot temperatures keep me from doing my workouts in the middle of day when it’s the hottest, I have to do everything mainly in the morning.

2. I seem to have the most energy in the morning anyway so all of this works out, I think everyone on average workouts out in the morning.

– – – – – – – – – – – – –

Here is what I suggest you do in order:

1. Early in the morning you should start out with your aerobic routines. Doing this first will actually help you have more energy during the rest of the day, anytime after morning hours you won’t have the same amount of energy as you started.

2. After aerobics you should go into your weight lifting routines. Try to do it in the morning as well.

3. When after you’ve completed your work out routines (if you don’t already have a routine check out the Workout Routines section) lunch should be nutritional and balanced. Milk, veggies, fruits, grains you know a completely balanced meal.

4. After lunch try and spend some time outside, the sun is very good for your skin and body growth.

5. When you feel wiped just rest, even if it’s outside. Rest is always important.

– – – – – – – – – – – –

If you keep a schedule like that in summer time you should see results within at least a month, keep a good schedule going and enjoy summer vacation!

Stay tuned for the next update!

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.

HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP IS NOT YOUR FRIEND: Part 4

Posted by Saito on January 26, 2009

I just found some juicy info for you guys concerning High Fructose Corn Syrup, HFCS is officially banned from Europe.

HFCS BANNED

Yep banned, no product in Europe should by law contain HFCS. Ah Europe, that was a smart move. If only I could be there to try products that don’t contain HFCS, it would be a nice change since I have to eat smart everyday of my life here in America…

Its sad that we who live in America have to suffer with obesity, HFCS is such a big waste product. Why hasn’t it been banned here in America? It’s been proven that HFCS has big role to play in the obesity factor. Yet it’s still being used in everyday food products, which in turn causes us to remain overweight and unhealthy.

Keep trying to stay away from HFCS, keep trying to eat smart and daily exercise. You will benefit greatly doing so 😀

Weight Losing Tips: Third Step

Posted by Saito on January 12, 2009

Check out the next update called Step Four

Like my mom says “everything in moderation” take your time while eating, have a balanced diet 😀

This is one of the MOST IMPORTANT STEPS OF LOSING WEIGHT AND KEEPING A BALANCED DIET!! Having a balanced meal is essential to losing weight it’s a *must*.  If you view the previous step that dealt with staying away from cheese I had pizza and balanced the amount of cheese I consumed with a large portion of salad, that is a *Very Good* balance, perfect for your body :D.

Then there is a second important part to this, “everything in moderation”. My mom always says to eat in a good moderate direction, take it easy, have something healthy to go with something starchy or oily just like I was explaining above paragraph. Sometimes for lunch at my house I eat left overs from last night, some times it’s pasta or burritos, for lunch though this time I had pasta :D. Normally the pasta is done with thick noodles, the sauce consists of Alfredo sauce, chicken pieces and broccoli. Now this is a completely balanced meal for dinner, but for lunch I normally have an orange or an apple to go with it, you need more energy in the day and a functioning body in every single area inside and out.

The last but not least part of this whole step is very small but important, chewing your food slowly. For me I used to gobble down food without a second thought and not chew it down properly, now I consume my food slowly and speak more often at the table while eating a great meal. Why do I do this? I do this so my body can take the nutrients out of the food properly and waiting for my brain to catch up with how much I am eating, it takes twenty minutes for your brain to realize how much you have taken in to eat…so it’s important to take your time, at dinner time normally your in no rush, take it easy and relax. This is a great way of losing weight and staying healthy :D.

Stay tuned tomorrow for the next step =D.

This Teens Weight Loss Plans Holiday Special: How To Avoid Too Much of Those Tempting Christmas Treats…

Posted by Saito on December 25, 2008

Hey it’s me again, let’s talk Christmas feast here.

When my family and I have a Christmas feast it’s normally sugary and very fatty…but OH so tempting…

I’m sure most of us are faced with the same problem here, so how do you avoid the sugar and maintain a healthy diet?

My suggestion TO YOU would be take your time…what normally happens with these sugary feasts is the urge to eat it ALL. We think aw come on it’s only once a year…but then your hooked on it afterwards “LEFTOVERS” for example. The left overs are a big part in the role of goodies and they could last for WEEKS if not all of January…imagine every day consuming small quantities of extreme sugar every day all because it tastes SOO good…I did and the results were devastating. So this year I’m cutting back, I’ll choose some things I like with others things that are healthier for me and STILL taste good.

For me this year for Christmas dinner it’s roast and baked potatoes ABSOLUTELY fantastic! With it there is going to be apple cider, Champagne (for my parents), sparkling cider, chocolate pudding pie, broccoli, cherry cheese cake and freshly baked scones…and then there are the Christmas stockings there must always be SOME sort of candy treat in them every year…wow that’s a lot all together, I’ll tell you what I’m going to do this year:

1. I’ll take only what I need and not what I don’t

2. I’ll take a small portion of every thing once, then choose more of the goodies that aren’t sugary and fatty

3. I’ll take the time to chew my find food and enjoy the fact I am eating with my family…

If your like me and you DON’T want to gain weight just stick to the same rules here and you’ll be fine :D.

Will post more later when I find out something new =D.
