With the ever expanding tentacles of metabolic disorders, the western society is completely gripped in the mire of weight. Its a sad position, without a doubt, and the fast ands strenuous pace of life is not helping the cause at all. Gyms, spas and health pills are turning into million dollar projects and yet reprieve or redemption looks far fetched. Yes, few and far between, drugs and natural substances have been known to bring a silver lining amidst the gloom.
Acai berry is one such product that has given a lot of hope to the obesity-struck society (we arent generalizing and certainly there are fit men doing us proud). Its a fruit grown on the Acai palm, largely in the Para province of Brazil and at any rate confined to the Amazon rainforests. These have been the reason why the tribal have had a great run in terms of metabolism and its external manifestation; sleek, toned body and no disorders.
Acai berry, the fruit has run into the market shelves, pharma labs and juice bars of the west, pioneered by the Canadian surfers who had the right brain to form Parent company Sambazon. Since then, Acai supplements, Acai freeze dried products, juices, syrups; preserves are doing merry rounds of the west letting people slip out of their obesity with lan.
Its various supplements like Acai Burn, Acai Extreme, Acai Supreme; Acai Pure and Acai Vital are the talk of coffee-shop gossips and beer- bar vanity. People have been pleasantly done in by the consistency of its product derivatives. For instance, Acai Burn combines the powers of Acai Berry with green tea extracts like Silvestre mad Cambogia. Together, they bring in such antioxidant quantity that any toxins present on the vital organs and in the colon area are effectively flushed out. It is needless to say that the girth line is reduced and weight is quickly shed.
Acai berry and its various products heighten the metabolism thereby allowing it to burn more calories and hence shed weight. The Acai berry revolution is no scam or a gimmick as its detractors and cynics might believe. The fruit is a super fruit. Imagine its fibrous pulp is home to monounsaturated oils, phytosterols, polyphenols, anthocyanin, omega oils, amino acids, oleic acid, minerals and important vitamins. How can such a product ever stop short of bestowing gifts on metabolism?
Acai Burn is a perfect way of going about attaining a lightness and fluidity in the body. It will give you lower Low Density Cholesterol count and also act strongly against various cardio vascular, nervous and immunity issues. Also, you r gastric system will get the required punch and your feelings of flatulence, bloating and gas will simply disappear.
Just remember to follow the ingredient label and buy only those product supplements which are being made from freeze-dried powder of acai berry. Well! The revolution is well and truly on and it will pass by only after benefiting a large section of our society.
So shall it be said, so shall it be done!

To do a leg lift you have to lay down on the floor with arms at your sides. Lift slightly bent or straight legs up to about 90 degree angle and after a few seconds lower down ensuring you do not touch the ground with your feet, feel how your lower abs muscles work. Inspire while lying legs down, exhale while lifting up.

To do a cross you have to lay down on the floor, put your arms behind the head, raising it together with your shoulders. Lift the right knee to the chest and straight left leg up to about 45 degree angle. Inspire and turn the upper body to the right in order to touch the right knee with the left elbow, hold in this position for three seconds. Repeat the exercise with the other leg.
To do scissors stretch both legs, lift head and shoulders. Then lift the left leg up to about 90 degree angle grabbing your shin with your both hands. Lift the right leg up about 15 centimeters off the floor. Exhale and change the legs.

You’ve struggled through months of watching every mouthful, counting every calorie or carb, and exercising even if the weather is lousy. Finally you’ve reach your goal. However 6 months later the weight is starting to creep back. Having lost some weight are you finding it difficult to keep it off? This is a common problem and a real challenge. It seems we all work so hard to lose the weight but the minute we take a breather, back it comes. It is not only difficult to maintain the loss but also to lose further weight.
However, there are three secrets to maintain weight loss.
1. Set yourself a realistic goal. Wanting to lose huge amounts of weight in a hurry isn’t practical and you could soon start feeling the strain of trying to achieve your unrealistic targets. Your body is comfortable and adjusted to the heftier weight. Unfortunately it will want to get back to that comfortable weight until it gets used to the thinner you. When that happens your enthusiasm is likely to wane and you may find it difficult to stick to the program. Try to aim to lose one to two pounds a week. This is easier to stick to and maintain. Your body gets used to the lower weight and you won’t have such a struggle. Slow but steady wins the race. It took time to gain that weight. Take time to lose the weight.
2. Try to balance your calorie intake with the amount of energy you can burn. You need to make sure you burn more calories than you consume to show any tangible results. Even consuming one soda, which is about 150 calories, makes a difference. 150 calories may not seem like much but if you take that much more in every day than you burn, you can gain a pound in 3 weeks and that means you’ve gained 17 pounds in a year.
3. Use a pedometer to calculate how many steps you take in a day. Keep adding 250 steps every day in weekly increments. Most adults who lead a sedentary life - is that you - walk 2500 to 3500 steps a day. If you add 250 steps every week for 10 weeks. You’ll double your energy expenditure. Ideally try to add on 4000 to 6000 steps a day to your current schedule. If you can ultimately take a total of over 10, 000 steps a day you will see a visible difference in your weight loss progress.
You are bound to maintain your weight loss in this manner if you utilize these three secrets to maintain weight loss.

Hoodia is one of the top weight loss diet supplements used today. In general the conventional wisdom is that hoodia is great for helping you brain think that you are full. If you are starting to consider the use of hoodia, you may be wondering if there are any side effects associated with it’s use. Let’s take a look.
Found in the Kalahari desert in South America, hoodia is a plant known as a succulent that resembles a cactus in appearance. It is a fairly thin, prickly plant that often features large blossoms that are peachy-pink in color. There are different species of hoodia, and the one that offers weight loss potential is hoodia gordonii.
Currently there are no documented side effects from hoodia use. Because the plant is all natural, and non pharmaceutical probably has a large part to do with it. Due to the non side effect benefit, it is very popular for use.
Hoodia grows in many different continents and there are over 20 known varieties. It is important to note that the hoodia used for weightloss comes from the western cape of Africa, and you don’t want to use the versions that are available from South America. Currently, there are synthetic versions that are being developed, but none actually exsist.
There are products out there that contain hoodia as an ingredient. If you use a mix, or combination of things, you may experience side effects from the other ingredients. That is why use of a 100% hoodia product is recommended.
While pure hoodia gordonii is the best it is rather expensive. However, scientific study shows that hoodia can be on average 100,000 times more effective than use of glucose in controlling hunger. The important thing to remember is that you don’t need a lot of the product to have it work. Most times, people think they are getting value for volume, but that isn’t necessarily the case.
Phytopharm is the corporation that holds the patent for P57, the component of hoodia that accounts for it’s remarkable appetite suppressant qualities. When you are looking for hoodia for weight loss, don’t forget that you are looking for 100% pure hoodia, and you want hoodia that comes from South Africa.
For thousands, hoodia has been the help they needed to control their appetite. If you are sensitive to products, hoodia may be a good choice for you. Before you take any action, it is recommended that you speak to your doctor to find out if this is right for you. He can look at your circumstances and help determine the best course of action.

People who want to lose weight commonly, and first of all, think about reducing the amount of food they eat. This may be quite a solution but not exactly the best there is. In fact, depending on the amount you reduce in your food intake, it may even be dangerous to one’s health. So how does one lose weight effectively and safely? Here are some points one should consider when trying to lose weight:
Most people think that trimming down the calories can alone shed off their unwanted excess. Probably this is because of the fad there is in advertising about low-calorie food products and beverages. What people don’t know is that this could be dangerous because when they decrease their calorie intake way to below the required levels, the body begins to digest the fats. Sounds good but it doesn’t actually. Burning fat requires a lot of energy. Since there is not much energy in the body to facilitate metabolism of fat, it will run at a very slow pace resulting to fatigue, illness and weak immune system.
Low-calorie diet is also compensated for by the body by burning muscle. People on this type of diet who revert back to their old eating habits end up gaining back some, if not all the weight they have shed off. This would consist mainly of fats. And since fats have more volume per mass than muscle, they end up having the same weight as before but more bulkier. In losing weight, one should keep in mind that they should lose excess body fats only.
However, one can try out eating small meals at more frequent intervals. This way the body will not think that it is being starved and will not store food as fat.
One may have considered junking the crash diet option but he should also not forget to watch what he is eating. Variety must always be considered so that one may be able to get the necessary nutrients from his diet.It is also healthier to eat food which are roasted, steamed or broiled rather than fried. It is also important to include a lot of fiber in the diet. Frequent rehydration is also necessary.
Muscles burn calories when they work; they even do so at rest. Unlike fats which just lie around, bulge around the pants and dangle beneath the sleeves, muscles burn calories all-day round. With this fact, one can start weight loss by increasing muscle mass. The more muscles, the less fat will be left. This is attainable starting with working out with resistance exercises.
Aerobics are not only good for the heart by increasing cardio-vascular endurance. Aerobics also help in increasing lean muscle mass while simultaneously decreasing excess body fat. Aside from these, aerobics make the metebolic process more efficient and its rate high, even after a long while. Imagine burning fat efficiently while driving along the freeway or even while watching television.
Some people believe that smoking and caffeine can actually help in losing weight. This can perhaps be true; however, they do the body more harm than good because of their side-effects. For that extra “push”, one can try out taking food supplements. Afterall, 95% of these products out in the market actually does good.
Over-the-counter diet pills affect the amount of weight one loses as well as how long one keeps that amount of weight off. However, one must be wary of the side-effects of these diet pills. As such, one must faithfully follow the instructions provided for in the packaging. It is also prudent to consult the physician anyway before trying out these drugs and also to find out which type would be best for the individual.
Losing weight does not have to mean sacrifice and suffering. It actually means opening up to a more full and healthy life where one may not have to feel bad about himself having to look the way he does or not being able to do what he wants to do. Losing weight might entail a little adjustments plus the discomforts, but as the old saying goes, “no pain, no gain.” Besides fat, what has one got to lose anyway?

There are a million diet plans on the market today. You can increase your chance of picking a suitable plan if you look for these five commandments of successful weight loss.
Satiety is feeling full, gratified. Most diet programs leave people feeling hungry - which has a host of other effects. When you feel hungry, you increase the likelihood that you will binge the next time you eat. Hunger can also lead to depression, anger, and headaches.
A diet can achieve satiety in multiple ways - like eating every 3-4 hours. This is a component of most diet plans available today for a very good reason - eating smaller, more frequent meals has been proven to help burn fat and keep your metabolism revved up.
For fat loss to occur, you must burn more calories than you take in. There are several components to creating a calorie “deficit”, and using them all together will be the most effective. Plus, you won’t be starving yourself like you usually do when you diet. Achieving satiety at the same time as creating a calorie deficit is difficult but not impossible.
How do you create this calorie deficit? It is a combination of watching your intake along with the right types of exercise, which burn calories during and after activity, as long as 36 hours after completion!
Besides eating every 3-4 hours, your diet needs to be rich in 4 components known to make you feel “fuller” but also contribute to fat burning - protein, fats, fiber and water.
One of the most difficult aspects of any fat loss program is getting your portion sizes under control. In order to achieve fat loss you need to create a calorie deficit, and one of the ways to do that is through portion control - but how do you do this while not feeling hungry?
Consuming a lean protein along with healthy fats and fiber at each meal, and eating each meal 3-4 hours apart BEFORE you have a chance to feel hungry again, will cover the satiety aspect. You will also notice that you will feel fuller with less food, so you will be controlling your portions without really focusing on it.
You must include fiber-rich foods in your diet (beans, peas, apples, grapefruit). A major advantage of fiber is the effect on weight control. Studies have shown that the majority of obese people have diets miserably low in fiber. Since fiber-rich foods are filling and usually low in fat, you’ll feel more satisfied with less food and lose weight more easily.
It is recommended that between 20 and 30 grams of fiber be consumed daily and at least eight glasses of water to aid the movement of food through the digestive tract.
Dehydration inhibits fat loss. Most people don’t get enough water on a daily basis, never mind for training / fat loss. When you don’t have enough water, your bowels will also slow down.
Here are a few tips for getting more water into your daily intake:
1. Never let yourself get thirsty - drink enough that you don’t feel parched.2. If exercising, consume one ounce of water for every ounce of body weight lost during exercise. So if you lost one pound after exercising, you should consume 16 ounces of water.3. If you are a goal-oriented person, get a half-gallon jug of water and carry it around with you - your goal is to drink it all by the end of the day.

http://www.weightlossexcerciseblog.com/excercise-articles/474/6-easy-tips-to-define-muscles-and-get-cut-abs/#commentsWed, 25 Feb 2009 07:22:19 +0000Adminhttp://www.weightlossexcerciseblog.com/excercise-articles/474/6-easy-tips-to-define-muscles-and-get-cut-abs/By Michael Anthony
These six tips will change your life. In just a few paragraphs you will learn everything you need to know to get cut abs and define your muscles. Ok that’s not quite true, but for all the efforts you have made to define muscles on your body and get those cut abs you can keep these six easy tips in mind to take you to the next level. Whether that next level is dropping a few extra pounds or improving your massive body-builder physique is your choice!
So without further ado, the six easy tips to define muscles and get cut abs:
1. Keep your cardio and lifting separate. Both cardio and weight training are essential parts of any good routine to define muscles or get cut abs. However, many of us have our designated work out days where we do everything. There are many advantages to doing your intense cardio days on different days than your heavy lifting days. For example, if you are doing heavy leg lifts on Monday wait to do your heavy leg cardio until Tuesday or Wednesday. First of all you will not even be able to get the maximum results out of your already tired legs if you do them on the same day but also keeping them separate will help your body to recover and your muscles to grow even more.
2. Do your cardio in intervals. Adding to changing your cardio habits, one of the best methods for muscle definition and trimming off your fat to show your cut abs is interval training. Exerting near maximum energy for 45-60 seconds and then reverting back to moderate energy for a “rest” period numerous times will burn much more calories than just jogging or doing the elliptical at a near constant rate. So whatever cardio you do, do it in intervals!
3. Keep a log of your workouts. One of the simplest things you can do yet so many of us just do not do it. No matter what weight loss or muscle building program you are on, keep track of your weights, repetitions, and/or times simply so you can better them the next time and keep your routine on track!
4. Cut out the late night snacks. Having the occasional cookie, candy bar, or snack of choice won’t ruin your diet. Having those snacks late at night just may though. When you ingest calories late at night - before you sleep for the next eight hours - your body will not burn them off. But if you eat your snacks - and biggest meals - early in the day before you are active you have a much better chance of burning those calories
5. A “boring” healthy diet is best. This is one you know but how much do you abide by it? Stick to foods rich in whole grains, monounsaturated fats, protein, and all the essential vitamins and minerals you need. These include whole grain breads, fish, many nuts, peanut butter, and eggs.
6. Stretch lightly before and hard after. Imagine a cold and a warm rubber band. Which one expands better? Your most intense stretching should be after your workouts while your muscles are still warm. Not only does this aide in your recovery but stretching your muscles after helps them to grow so that they can become more defined! All of your early stretching should be done after you warm up first.
You may have found this article because you want a quick solution to define your muscles and get cut abs. The truth is there are hundreds more pieces of advice and guess what? They all work if you put them to work. Remember you cannot spot reduce fat. The reason you do not have the flat abs and defined muscles you may want is because you need to lower your overall body fat. A total body workout routine is the answer to cutting the fat and showing off your muscles. Engage in a full body workout routine and keep these six pieces of advice in mind along the way!
