Excerpted from Awaken the Diet Within: From Overweight to Looking Great By Julia Griggs Havey Are you fat? Answer the question for yourself, and keep the answer in the back of your mind. We will return to your answer in a minute. Now, think back for a moment and imagine how I must have felt when the homeless man was shouting out his observation about my body.

You and Your Food Diary

Excerpted from The Business Plan for the Body: Crunch the Numbers for Successful Weight Loss, Manage Your Metabolism by Eating the Right Way, Invest in the Only Workout You'll Ever Need By Jim Karas How you elect to spend your money. Some people spend more on eating out, others on movies, electronic equipment, sports, clothes, or a new car. Others just spend money constantly, which I definitely equate to overeating. As a nation, Americans overeat, without considering th

Women Crave For Food More Than Men

By Margarita Nahapetyan According to a new research on the brain, women unconsciously find it much harder to suppress their cravings for food and resist their favorite meals than men, and are more likely to give in to temptation. Brain scans of hungry volunteers have been performed and scientists were able to compare the brain ability of men and women to check if gender was the reason that influenced the ability to resist hunger. 23 h

Why French Women Are The Slimmest In Europe?

By Margarita Nahapetyan A report by the National Institute of Demographic Studies in France has revealed that French women, who are the slimmest in Europe, consider themselves as fat, while British ladies, who are the most overweight - are the most comfortable with their size. But while a new research has confirmed that French women are really the thinnest in western Europe, their slenderness comes at big cost: they are also concerned

Why Avoid Faux Food?

Excerpted from The French Don't Diet Plan: 10 Simple Steps to Stay Thin for Life By William Clower, Ph.D. Never before in human history (until now) have we had to ask the question, What is food? Our biology took care of that for us, through our senses. But now, synthetics can fool our physiology into thinking something's okay to consume, when it's nothing but a cheap imitation, a faux food that undermines your weight and health. Think about your

What's So Bad about Flour and Sugar?

Excerpted from Dr. Gott's No Flour, No Sugar Diet By Peter H. Gott, M.D., Robin Donovan Flour and sugar are both carbohydrates, so what's so bad about them? It's not that these foods are bad because they are carbohydrates, but rather because added sugars and refined flour provide "empty calories," unlike their nutrient-dense cousins-whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and legumes-that provide fiber, vitamins, and minerals along with their carbohydrate punch. &

What You Need to Know about Real Weight Loss

Excerpted from Never Say Diet: Make Five Decisions and Break the Fat Habit for Good By Chantel Hobbs I actually love my daily exercise. My problem is that I am so hungry afterward. Did this happen to you, and how did you balance this when you were trying to lose weight? I learned about this as I became more fit. When I started, my body had plenty of stored fat, so I didn't experience true hunger as much in the beginning. But by the time I was tr

Weight Loss Surgery Increases The Risk Of Broken Bones

By Margarita Nahapetyan It has not been a secret that bariatric surgery for the purposes of losing weight, may be a life-saving move for many individuals. However, the scientists say that the procedure doubles the risk of suffering from broken bones. It has been known that the lost of bone density after operation is a natural consequence of the fast and significant weight loss that happens in patients, as well as the difficulty some i

Weight Loss Helps Incontinence

By Margarita Nahapetyan Overweight patients are often advised by medical professionals to lose weight in order to better fight certain conditions, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and cancer. There is a strong evidence that excess weight leads to these problems, as well as prevents patients from getting better and recovering. A recent new study showed another reason why obese people, especially women, should start losing weight

Weight Loss - What's Blood Got to Do with It?

Excerpted from The pH Miracle for Weight Loss: Balance Your Body Chemistry, Achieve Your Ideal Weight By Robert O. Young, Ph.D., Shelley Redford Young In a word, everything. Blood's central role in your health and weight makes sense when you consider just how much of it your body contains-exactly how much of your body is blood. Everyone has about 5 liters of the stuff. To circulate it through the body, the heart beats over 100,000 times a day, moving two and a half ounc

Weight Loss - Retraining Your Feeling Brain

Excerpted from The 3-Day Solution Plan: Jump-start Lasting Weight Loss by Turning Off the Drive to Overeat [BURST:] Lose up to 6 pounds in 3 days! By Laurel Mellin, M.A., R.D.

Weight Loss - Keep Winning! Make Your Game Plan

Excerpted from Winning After Losing: Keep Off the Weight You've Lost - Forever By Stacey Halprin One reason people gain back the pounds they've shed is they don't create a winning plan to maintain their goal weight. If you're telling yourself that you can maintain your current weight but you don't know how you're going to do it, you probably have a case of wishful thinking. Spare yourself the agony of defeat by being brutally honest with yourself right here, right now.

Weight Control - God's Plan for Eating

Excerpted from Eat and Stay Thin: Simple, Spiritual, Satisfaction Weight Control By Joyce Meyer Most diets fail because they are built on the starvation principle. They deny the body the nourishment it needs to maintain health and vitality. Whenever the body is deprived of its basic requirements, sooner or later it begins to rebel and demand what it needs to perform properly. The result is often the feast and famine cycle - which is why any weight lost is quickly regain

Weight and Body Shape

Excerpted from The Body Shape Solution to Weight Loss and Wellness By Marie Savard, M.D., Carol Svec It would be impossible to miss the message that obesity is now epidemic throughout the world. During two weeks in February 2004 alone, headlines proclaimed: DOCTORS CALL FOR ACTION OVER OBESITY "TIMEBOMB"; KILLER HABITS "NEED URGENT ATTENTION"; FAT "THE NEW TOBACCO," HEART GROUP WARNS; ALARM SOUNDED ABOUT RISING RATE or OBESITY IN KIDS. The phenomenon is so far-reaching

We Are What We Eat - The Diet Code

Excerpted from The Diet Code; Eat Bread, Drink Wine, Lose Weight By Stephen Lanzalotta I come from a mixed family: dark rye on one side, pagnotta on the other. My mom's family bought huge sections of black rye flavored with pungent black caraway from Turkestan, baked in behemoth loaves at a family-owned shop in Colchester, Connecticut, that still might as well have been in Poland. My dad's family bought Italian bread imported all the way from New Jersey. A thick, brittl

Want To Lose Weight? Just Count Your Calories

By Margarita Nahapetyan Low-fat, low-carb or high-protein diet does not matter, all that really counts is to eat less and count your calories, according to a new federal study. To come to this conclusion, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health financed a study that involved hundreds of people with extra weight. The research was conducted by scientists at the Harvard School of Public Health i

Want To Lose Weight? - Sleep More

By Margarita Nahapetyan People who want to lose weight may want to consider sleeping longer at night, say U.S. researchers, who found that there is a link between sleep habits and weight. According to the investigators, individuals who are 'short sleepers' (meaning they got less than six hours of sleep per night) are more likely to have on average a higher Body Mass Index (BMI) even if they are more physically compared to 'long sleepe

Want To Lose Weight? - Eat More Curry

By Margarita Nahapetyan If you are trying to lose weight, scientists would recommend you to eat lots of curry. According to the U.S. researchers, an extract of plant, used as a cooking spice - haldi, or turmeric - which is used in most of Indian dishes, has an active ingredient which could help fight an excessive weight. The scientists at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University (USDA HNRCA), fo

Vegeterian Atkins Diet Sheds More Than Just Weight

By Margarita Nahapetyan A vegetarian version of the Atkins low-carbohydrate diet, the one that substitutes meat with plant protein, may help overweight people lose weight and bring down levels of bad cholesterol in the blood, Canadian researchers reported in the June 8 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine, one of the JAMA/Archives journals. A small, 30-day-long study of the so-called Eco-Atkins diet, appeared to work better than a h

Vegetarian Appetizers and First Courses

Understanding Compulsive Eating

Excerpted from You Can't Quit 'til You Know What's Eating You: Overcome Overeating By Donna LeBlanc, M.Ed. Sixty to 70 million people in the United States are compulsive eaters, according to one conservative estimate. (The very, very few with an actual physiological basis for excess weight aren't included in this count.) How do you know if you're among them? Not everyone who is overweight wants to be associated with the term "compulsive." But re

Toxic Problems, Detox Solutions

Excerpted from The Fast Track One-Day Detox Diet: Boost metabolism, get rid of fattening toxins, safely lose up to 8 pounds overnight and keep them off for good By Ann Louise Gittleman, Ph.D., C.N.S. If environmental toxins are the problem, you'd think detoxification would be the solution. But again, medical and scientific evidence is lacking. One of the most severe frustrations I've felt over the years is over the resistance the medical establishment has to acknowledgi
