How I Easily Lost Over 80 Pounds in 5 Months

Every day we hear and read stories about someone who managed to lose tens of pounds of weight and being able to get back in shape.

A lot of us think that these stories are fad or the photos have been photo shopped. But in my case, this is a true story!

Losing weight, and getting in shape is not as complicated and difficult as you think.

But the results will not happen overnight either!

Hi, my name is Jennifer Lee and today I’ll be sharing with you my true success story.

You see I used to weight over 200 pounds and I am only 5 foot 3 inch tall.

I had grown up being on the chubby side.  It took me some time to accept that I am the girl that guys just wanted to be good friends with.

In fact, I was very aware that my weight had been out of control for years.

 My health was awful; having developed high blood pressure, and pre diabetes since young age before I even hit 20 years old, was enough to confirm that something needed to change.

I decided to go on radical diets and extreme remedies to lose weight.

I had never lost more than 10 pounds and only to gain even more back with those extreme diets.

That was until I found out about this science-based weight loss method. And my weight loss struggle was history.

And for just 5 months of using this method I managed to lose 80 pounds and get my life back.

So if you’re interested in finding out how I managed to get to my ideal weight and figure then please keep on watching.

This weight loss method that I’m going to reveal to you is the most realistic and practical method that I have tried.

Look, it’s not your fault that you’re still struggling, no one has told you about this secret.

And you would be glad to know that it all starts from making small changes in what you eat or do daily that could snowball into something incredible.

First thing I started doing was drinking more water a day.

Just this one change alone catapulted to the success that I have today. 

The second change I made was that I would go for a short walk of 15 minutes a day. No longer than that.

But the last tip I’m about to give you is the true game changer.

5 Steps to Kick Start Your Weight Loss Program

Remember there is more to you than meets the eye.

You’ve got personality, brains, feelings in short, all those things that make you, YOU.

So why diet?

After all, you’re more than just a body, and things that really matter can’t be measured on a scale.
That said, there are some very good sound reasons for dieting. After all, dieting is not just for weight loss or weight gain.

The true meaning of diet is in choosing foods and setting eating habits that will keep you healthy, strong, and feeling your best. It takes planning and dedication. It means setting goals and following through.

But it doesn’t have to be a chore. With the right tools it can even be fun especially when you start to see the results that your looking for!

Before, choosing a diet, there are five extremely simple steps, which if you really apply you will probably end up losing weight without even trying!

Doesn’t that sound interesting?

Really No kidding try the following:

Step 1) Always sit down when you eat, preferable at a table. Don’t eat while standing, walking, driving or talking on the phone.

Step 2) Don’t read or watch television while you eat.

Step 3) Eat only when your stomach is empty. At least 3 to 4 hours from your last meal.

Step 4) Don’t take a bite until you’ve already swallowed the previous bite. Obvious? Try observing people and you’ll see them stuffing their mouths, which are still full. They probably talk at the same time! So, bite, chew, swallow, bite, chew, swallow.

Step 5) Don’t eat when you’re not hungry. No, I’m being serious and I know that this sounds stupid. For example when at home wait 5 minutes before taking second helpings. If you wait, you’ll probably find that you’re no longer hungry, whereas if you don’t wait you could probably eat thirds! Remember! Wait five minutes before taking more.

A good diet doesn’t end when you finally reach your target goal. Maintaining good nutrition, regular exercise and a healthy lifestyle is a continuing process. Only this will give you the energy to face the challenges of your busy day, boost your self-image, and make you look and feel better.

And there’s no feeling like the satisfaction when you achieve your goals by sticking to a sensible, healthy, diet plan.

Besides, where would we be without food?

Changing your diet to prevent or reverse heart disease, reduce your blood pressure, or to get the better of your diabetes and, naturally to reach your desired weight, is not just a matter of cutting out butter and eggs and counting the amount of fat grams you eat each day.

For instance, most Americans get close to 40% of their calories from fat! This is twice the recommended amount if you already suffer from heart disease.

There are many misconceptions and confusion concerning fat these days, some seem to make sense, others are just plain dumb!

Remember, concerning fat, several things are now known for sure. It is known that most of us eat too much fat and that obesity is a major health concern, increasing the risk for heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, back pain and cancer.

It is also known that saturated fat, more than anything else, is responsible for increasing our cholesterol levels.

I know it’s weird, but it’s been found, ironically, that when people focus exclusively on eliminating cholesterol from their daily diet they may unknowingly move on to a diet high in saturated fats!

Some people decide to become vegetarian, leaving out meat and eggs, but the salad dressings, nuts and peanut butter, for instance, do more damage than a lean steak!

Message: be careful what you eat, you may be surprised at the results you get. Simple changes make the biggest difference!

3 Effective Weight Loss Lessons from The Biggest Loser

The show is fun to watch. Some people think the things contestants do are ridiculous and not healthy in the long run!

I am one of those people!

But that doesn’t mean there is absolutely nothing you can take away from the show.

Here are the three things from ‘the Biggest Loser’ that I think will benefit the audience once applied to their diet plans.

1. Put Weight Loss First.

In the Biggest Loser household WEIGHT LOSS COMES FIRST. Make it come first in your household, too. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? It is.

In fact, so simple that many people just overlook it. They try to fit exercise and meal planning around everything else in their lives, instead of making it a priority.

Think: what is most important: getting the weight off, and becoming fit enough to put years on your life – or watching another TV show?

Sit down with a pen and paper and allot at least one hour a day to planning meals, recording what you eat, and doing some form of exercise. You’ve still got 23 hours left to do everything else!

2. E is for Exercise – and Enjoy!

What else do you notice in the Biggest Loser household? The more they exercise, the more they seem to enjoy it. Oh sure, they grunt and they groan; they sweat and they complain.

But as the weeks go on, you’ll hear them say things like: “I never thought I’d say that I look forward to working out – but now don’t feel right if a day goes past without exercise!”

The secret to enjoying exercise is finding what’s right for YOU.

If you don’t really enjoy the gym, look for other forms of exercise. You need a mix of cardio and resistance training – but it doesn’t have to be on machines. Walk, swim, dance, climb hills, push a wheelbarrow in the garden… there are endless choices that can be fun for you.

Research what happens to various muscle groups – and to your heart – when you exercise, and pick activities that you will enjoy.

3. Identify the Triggers.

Emotions run high when the contestants have to face their demons. Weight gain is rarely from just a physical cause. If you keep a food diary, and faithfully record not only what you eat but when (and why) you eat it, you’ll soon see a pattern of emotional eating. What are YOUR triggers? Boredom? Tiredness? Family arguments?

Once you have identified these triggers, you can start working on strategies to defeat them. This can be as simple as challenging yourself every time you want food :

  • Am I hungry – yes or no? If I’m not hungry, then why do I want to eat? Am I really just thirsty?
  • If I’m running to the fridge because I’m upset, is there something else I can do to feel better?
  • Is there a long-term solution that will fix this forever?” and so on.)

If you’re not yet ready to deal with the root cause, then be prepared with food that won’t add to your problems with the resulting rolls of fat. Make sure that you have ‘good’ food at hand – but also food that you LIKE.

These are just three of the lessons that anyone can take away from watching The Biggest Loser. And you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing you did it all by yourself.

Foods That Help Your Burn Fat

Have you heard of ‘Metabolic Cooking’?

Is Metabolic cooking, with its claims to be a means to help you “burn fat quickly” and “stay slim,” in fact, just another weight loss gimmick? If that is what you think the following will shed some light on the matter and might be beneficial to you.

The concept of metabolic cooking is largely based on a couple of somewhat obscure but well-known properties of the human metabolism and food.

One of the ideas relates to the body’s tendency toward adaptation.

It is an indisputable fact that organisms have an incredible ability to adapt. Maybe not so well-known though, is that when it comes to adaptation we humans often adapt in a rather negative fashion.

Let me illustrate with an example.

It has been duly noted by researchers that many overweight people eat most of their food within a relatively short time each day. This unusual eating pattern motivated some of these researchers to conduct an experiment with rats.

…Alas, poor rats.

They forced the rats into unusual patterns of fasting and eating to investigate the effects of what they dubbed a “stuff and starve feeding program.”

One group of rats was allowed after their fast to eat at any time they pleased. The other group was provided more than they could possibly consume, but limited to two hours in which to eat it each day.

3 Big Problems That
Every So Called “Fat Loss”
Cookbook Got
 REALLY WRONG

And Here How to Get It Right!

Lo and behold after weeks of this nonsense (well, at least from the rat’s perspective) the body weight of the restricted feed time rats increased dramatically more than the rats which could eat at will.

Karine Losier aka “The Lean Kitchen Queen”

What is really interesting though is that the restricted feeding time rats were then allowed for several weeks to eat at will all day long. They persisted in altered, obviously unhealthy eating habits to which they had adapted.

After these researchers dissected the poor rodents they discovered that “the increased body fat is associated with increased hexose monophosphate shunt enzyme activity in liver and adipose tissue homogenates.”  (That’s just a fancy way to say, the rats became obese.)

They deduced from these experiments that a process of metabolic adaptation likely makes it very difficult for obese people to break free from their unusual eating habits. This essentially keeps them from adopting a pattern of eating smaller portions throughout the day, which is recommended for weight loss.

Another, but more widely-known form of this type of adaptation is experienced by millions of would-be weight losers following strict diets.

There is typically a swift reaction by the body initially wherein pounds fall away, sometimes rapidly. Alas, in many if not most dieter’s experience this is not an apparently sustainable solution.

It is often sad that these individuals with sufficient motivation and discipline to adhere to a strict diet do not understand what is happening. This is the point where the vast majority just give up.

The body adapts to this diet and the metabolism slows down. Thus further weight loss is stymied.

Metabolic cooking offers a means to avoid this by varying the types of food eaten daily to a degree that the body cannot adapt.

Another well-known but not widely known attribute of food lies at the heart of metabolic cooking. Foods all have what is termed a thermogenic factor. This simply means that different foods take more body energy to digest. The more body energy used to digest food the more calories burned in the process.

Unfortunately, many people attempting to lose weight are totally oblivious to the thermogenic property many spices have. Spices are known to have the ability to speed up your metabolism. This is especially true of hot spices such as Cayenne pepper, which has thermogenic properties that cause an increase in metabolism evidenced by an increase in body heat.

That is why really hot foods make you sweat.

Other spices, which have demonstrable benefits in stepping up your metabolism include, but are not limited to cinnamon, mustard, turmeric and ginger.

A third major factor within metabolic cooking aimed at avoiding the not so good effects of metabolic adaptation is to consume the right nutrients at the right time.

The oft suggested plan of eating every few hours, but not a full meal deal, has definite metabolic advantages. As well, what to eat at what time of the day plays a significant role in burning calories.

For example, if you skip a meal before some relatively strenuous exercise your body will favor seeking to break down muscle for the needed energy.

In need of energy in the absence of nutrients the body tends to break down muscle in favor of stored fat because it is easier.  So, you will be burning significantly less stored fat than if you had have eaten and especially, included some carbohydrates.

On the other hand if you load up on carbohydrates then take a nap your body will convert them to fat for storage. Hence, we should load up on carbs first thing in the morning, especially before a physically active day. That way we won’t be burning muscle but rather fat. On the same note carbs should be avoided later in the day.

In summary:

Metabolic cooking is more an adapted style of cuisine than a dietary program, and is built upon 3 principles:

  • Avoiding the pitfalls of metabolic adaptation and its fattening consequences largely by eating a wide variety of foods.
  • Making good use of the well-known thermogenic properties of different types of foods to help your body burn more fat and “spice” up your life.
  • Taking advantage of the current vast resources of knowledge on human metabolism to determine the best times of day to eat the various macro-nutrients essential to our health.

The concept of metabolic cooking evolved out of the “extreme fitness” trend prevalent today. It has its roots in the muscle-building arena where those in competition search for that “technical edge” in their training.

Nevertheless, it is also a very effective method of weight loss and enhancing overall fitness.

Anti-Aging Secrets

Who else wants super sexy skin… at any age?

Most women who want to improve their skin’s condition turn to the typical expensive creams, lotions and potions available at department stores. They slather on the anti-aging formulas, they cover their faces in make-up to hide skin flaws, and they obsess every time they look in the mirror.

Sound familiar?

Let me tell you something…

That’s the “old school” way of taking care of your skin. And you know what? It doesn’t work…

The reason I know this is because of a woman named Belinda Benn, who used to be a top executive in the cosmetics industry.

By the time she was in her 30s, her own skin looked horrible. She had odd rashes and was aging prematurely. Yet Belinda had access to the cosmetic industry’s top products, information and advice.

Why wasn’t her skin flawless and radiant?

The problem is that traditional cosmetics mask underlying skin conditions and the symptom of aging, rather than treating the problem at its source.

In fact, the cosmetics industry is counting on you having continued skin problems, so that you’ll keep buying their products. For life.

Now here’s the other big problem…

Some of these anti-aging skincare products are actually bad for you. They contain toxic ingredients that damage your skin, such as parabens, BHT, BHA, parfum, Blue 1 and many more. So while these products may feel good when you put them on, in the long run many of these cosmetics are actually accelerating your skin’s aging process.

So what’s the solution?

You need to nourish your skin naturally, from the inside out. That’s where Belinda Benn’s Super Sexy Skin program comes in.

The Super Sexy Skin program isn’t about buying expensive, damaging chemicals to put on your skin. Instead, it’s a three-pillar natural skincare program which includes:

  •  A detailed nutrition plan. Sugars and processed foods can damage your skin. Inside the nutrition plan you’ll find out exactly what to eat in order to naturally restore your skin’s youthful vitality. Whether you have problems with blemishes, dry skin, oily skin, premature aging or anything else, this eating program will work wonders to make your skin beautiful.
  • The skincare program. The second part of this program will show you how to use Shiatsu facial massage, aromatherapy and exfoliation to help your skin naturally cart away impurities and give your skin a beautiful, healthy glow. You even get a follow-along video which shows you exactly how to give yourself a Shiatsu facial massage. It not only feels great, it makes your skin beautiful.
  • A body toning program. The final pillar of this program is gentle stretching and toning exercises to help improve your body condition and circulation. Together, this makes your skin radiant and youthful looking. You’ll get a follow-along video that you can use in your living room, in your gym, or where ever you feel comfortable.

These Foods are Bad for Acne

That’s all there is to restoring your skin’s natural vitality and youth.

You don’t need to buy expensive (and dangerous) cosmetics. You don’t need Botox. You don’t need surgery. You just need to use healthy food, gentle exercise, exfoliation, aromatherapy, and massage to give your body what it needs to restore your skin.

Best of all, this program works in as little as 28 days.

Imagine looking in the mirror a month from now and liking what you see.

Imagine your blemishes, rough skin, acne, dry skin, oily skin, sagging skin and other imperfections reducing and even disappearing. Imagine having beautiful skin… without spending hundreds of dollars on creams, lotions and potions that don’t work.

I’ve gone through this program thoroughly and there is no better way to get beautiful skin. Nothing has been missed with this program. You get step-by-step instructions in the Super Sexy Skin Bible, menu plans, a skin assessment, a diary, a detox program, follow-along videos and so much more.

I can’t recommend this program highly enough, because it’s unlike anything you’ve seen. But don’t take my word for it – click here  to see the “before” and “after” photos yourself, and to learn more about how this program will become your best-kept beauty secret.

 

How to Pick The Right Cocktail Dresses

Differences Between Cocktail Dresses and Formal Dresses

When it comes to a cocktail party, the most popular vision is nothing but a hot girl in a sexy cocktail dress with nice legs. It rocks, doesn’t it? While we’re talking about a formal event, it’s another story. The invitation tells “A Black Tie Party” which means we must wear formal dresses. How can we tell the difference between cocktail dresses and formal dresses? What do we need to pay attention? The following tips may help you decide what to wear once you’re invited.

Formality

A cocktail dress usually means what we wear to a cocktail party. Drinks and appetizers are generally served there. Moreover, guests have freedom to decide the skirt length since a cocktail party is less formal than most events. Formal dresses are what we wear to special occasions such as formal weddings, balls, charity events, etc. Choosing what to wear depends on the event formality. If you wear a cocktail dress in a formal event, you might not be thought as a cultivated woman as formal events require proper solemnities.

Skirt length

The length of cocktail dresses can be ranged from mid-thigh to knee length. You can decide the skirt length according to your body shape. A mid-thigh length dress is fabulous for a woman with nice legs, while a knee length dress suits for all-figures. However, the lengths of formal dresses are generally from knee length to floor length. Floor length is absolutely the most popular one when you're attending some formal events like a cathedral wedding. It is not appropriate to wear an above-knee length dress in a formal occasion.

Color

Cocktail dresses are available in a wide range of colors and patterns. Bold colors like pink or tiger brindles are sure to turn heads in a cocktail party. Don't worry about that you might be more attractive than the bride in a wedding or you might not look graceful in a bright shiny colored dress in a white tie occasion. On the contrary, you need to pay attention when choosing color of formal gowns. As usual, monotone or uncomplicated color combinations are appropriate for formal dresses. Stay away from the bright hues like red or pink at funeral.

Accessories

No matter what event you are attending, never forget to accessorize your dress with matching jewelry. The same set works for both cocktail dress and formal dress. Chic clutches or designer handbags add a classy touch to your gown. Stilettos work well with your cocktail dress as they elongate your legs. A pair of shining high heels with crystals will accent your floor length formal dress and produce a red carpet look. Remember to put on your favorite earrings and necklace for a complete ensemble.

Fabric

As for the fabrics, cocktail dresses and formal dresses are basically the same. Satin, taffeta and organza goes well with any gowns.
