Giving up smoking cigarettes is a major nightmare – as a smoker of 30 to 40 per day for nearly 40 years I can attest as to just how tough it can be to quit smoking. However I finally managed and have been smoke free for 2 years now.
I tried almost everything to stop smoking but it would usually last between a couple of hours to a record of 2 miserable days and then I would be back at it. I can’t even tell you how many packs of cigarettes I threw out my car window only to return a couple of hours later to see if I could find the pack.
So many times my New Years resolution was to quit smoking, only to make the same New Year’s resolution the following year.
Truth was that even though I had a slight will to give up I was never really committed to actually giving up smoking.
You see I had a very real fear of giving up smoking. My own Father had suffered from a major stroke a couple of months after quitting smoking and a similar thing happened to my father in law after he quit. I was petrified that the shock of giving up after so many years of nicotine addiction would seriously affect my health more than it would were I to continue smoking.
However I knew that in the long run that for my own good I had to quit. I had just lost a dear brother and another close relative to the dreaded lung cancer. I knew If I did not do something that I too could end up with major lung problems.
E- Cigs helped me quit smoking
With the invention of e-cigs I realized that I could continue to “smoke” without inhaling the 1000 plus harmful chemicals found in cigarettes and thereby improve my health. I was encouraged by a friend who had taken the plunge and had changed from smoking to vaping.
I purchased an e-cig online together with some 18% nicotine content vapor refills and I was ready to give it a full out go to quit smoking.
This is my diary of how I stopped smoking cigarettes in just 3 days.
I made sure that I had no cigarettes of my own lying around and started with the e-cig. It was pleasant. It was something to occupy my hands and to keep me busy. Smoking is mostly habit and a little addiction to nicotine. Breaking the habit of not having something between your fingers to smoke is probably harder than breaking the nicotine addiction.
Important – I made arrangements with a friend to pop in and have one real cigarette a day which I did. I really enjoyed that cigarette but I was determined to carry on with my routine.
Very much the same as day 1 but a little easier. I still went ahead and popped into my friend for a real cigarette which did give me quite a buzz. I could smell the smoke in my clothes afterwards and even changed when I got home as the smoke smell was actually starting to bug me. this was the first time that I really realized just how bad smoke smelt.
All went great – popped into my friend for my daily smoke and guess what. I smoked quarter of it and threw away the rest. It actually smelt and tasted disgusting. Again I found myself washing hands and changing clothes.
I must say that by the third day I already had a remarkably improved sense of taste and smell. I also had no withdrawal symptoms associated with quitting smoking. The vaping really filled the gap and was a lot more pleasant to family and friends who no longer had to put up with the smell of smoke that I emanated.
Walking through shopping malls I found that as people in the crowd approached I could immediately smell the smokers and couldn’t believe that I had personally smelt like that for 40 years.
I also discovered that even though the e-cig has nicotine content I do not crave it like a cigarette. Where before a no smoking area like a shopping mall was like a prison – I had to get out to have a smoke. Now I find that I do not need that nicotine and usually only use my e-cig when driving or working in my home office. I am no longer controlled by nicotine cravings.
2 Years Later
I am still cigarette smoke free. Since that quarter smoke I have not touched a cigarette again. I must say that there have been a couple of times that I felt tempted but just the thought of the smell and taste in my mouth immediately puts me off again. Any temptation to smoke again can be easily controlled by simply walking past a used ashtray.
I still use my e-cig and will happily continue to do so. It is so much healthier than smoking and I feel much better. My car, my house and my clothes all smell a whole lot better. I have even found myself apologizing to family and friends who have never smoked for bringing my smoke smells into contact with them in the past.
Quit smoking outright
My wife stopped smoking the same time as me. She was not heavily addicted as I was and probably only smoked due to the act that I was a heavy smoker.
She went onto e-cigs for less than a month in order to break the habit and then she easily stopped using the e-cig as well. She has also been completely smoke free for 2 years.
Weight Gain after quitting smoking
Yeah – I gained a little weight when I quit. The problem is not that stopping smoking makes you gain weight. The real problem is that your sense of smell and taste is heightened so food just tastes so much better.
I advise you to keep this in mind and to make a conscious effort to not indulge yourself too much in all the delicious food and smells that assail you. Eat slowly to ensure that you savor every mouthful and allow time for your stomach to register that it is full.
Advice on e-cigs
Quitting smoking and switching to vaping is going to save you a lot of money. Don’t buy a cheap device that will leak and burn out leaving you more frustrated than before. Buy quality and enjoy the experience.
Keep going. The first 3 days are a little tough but if you are determined you can do it.
Experiment with your e-cig liquids. I have a personal preference for the smoke flavors such as camel, Marlboro and Dunhill but often mix them with a mint. Many of my friends who have followed me and successfully given up smoking have found their preference to be the fruity flavors.
E-cig liquids come in varying strengths of nicotine. 0 mg – 6 mg – 12 mg – 18 mg – 24 mg. Choose according to your past smoking history. Most sensible strength is the 12 mg which I now use. I have found 18 mg to be a little strong.
There are a lot of suppliers of quality e-cigs. My advice is to look for a reputable company and not a fly by night selling cheap Chinese e-cigs. I do know some people who have bought these cheap rip offs and thrown them away out of frustration after just a day or so.
You do not need the latest most expensive and most fashionable device but you do need a reliable device of air quality.
My preferred supplier is JAC Vapour who carry a wide selection of both oils and quality devices as well as all the necessary spares.
Are e-cigs harmful
A cigarette has a total of some 1000 different chemicals some of which are known cancer causing carcigens.
E- cigs oils usually contain Propylene Glycol, Glycerine, Water, Nicotine and a flavorant. All of my research has indicated that these are completely safe to use as a vape. Vapourised Propylene Glycol , in huge volumes, can be harmful to children. Do note that huge volumes are needed to cause any sort of risk.
Besides I personally prefer a hand full of very minor risks found in vaping oils as opposed to the huge risk associated with known cancer causing cigarette smoke.
Quit smoking today. Order your e-cig from JAQ Vapour and stop in just 3 days like I did.
How to get rid of belly fat so that you look and feel great again.
Losing belly fat will not only make you feel better and look great but will also vastly improve your overall health.
Belly fat is a build up of visceral fat in the abdominal cavity, Visceral fat, found in the abdominal cavity, differs from normal subcutaneous fat (the fat just below the skin) in that subcutaneous fat does not really harm your health that much apart from causing a little extra strain to your heart.
Visceral fat differs in that it releases toxins into the surrounding organs which causes inflammation to these organs.
Inflammation of the heart causes a narrowing of the arteries and blood vessels which can lead to eventual heart failure. Visceral fat can be as bad or worse for your health than smoking.
The other huge health problem associated with visceral fat is that a build up of pressure is experienced in the abdominal cavity. In a person with a BMI of 40, this internal pressure can be as much as 3 x atmospheric pressure or the equivalent to being 80 ft under water.
This internal pressure build up results in the internal organs such as the lungs becoming smaller and not being able to function properly. This is the prime reason why bigger people get out of breath so easily.
Unfortunately in some cultures a large belly has been seen as a sign of prosperity. Your larger belly indicates that you have the means to feed yourself well. A smaller frame indicated a lack of funds necessary to feed yourself well. Fortunately this practice is starting to dwindle as these cultures has slowly become more educated of the health risks associated with belly fat.
Steps to get rid of belly fat.
Getting rid of belly fat will often involve making some changes to your lifestyle. You can not go on doing all the same things and expect change to happen.
Below are some steps that you can take to help reduce your waistline.
Exercises to get rid of belly fat
Squats are well known for being a very powerful exercise when it comes to burning belly fat, and though they may not seem like they do much, you will be surprised on how effective they happen to be. Squats pressures the core area allowing it to burn more fat than the usual amount. Squats will not just burn all of your belly fat, but it will also help strengthen and tighten your legs. All you need to do is 5 simple sets of 10 squats 3-4 days a week, and in a few weeks, you will then start to see how your belly fat will slowly disappear.
Burpees are also a very effective exercise when it comes to losing belly fat. Burpees are a cardio exercise that will not just help you to burn belly fat, but also overall body fat. All you need to do is about 5 sets of 10 burpees as well, and within a few weeks, your belly fat will completely vanish. Burpees may be a tiring exercise, but that is only because they really are effective when it comes to losing belly fat.
– Mountain Climbers
Mountain climbers are also effective when it comes to losing your belly fat, as it also pressures the core area. Mountain climbers don’t just eliminate the fats in your stomach, but it also tightens the legs. The reason why mountain climbers are a very effective exercise is because in just a short period of time, all of the fats in your belly and legs will disappear.
Change your diet to lose belly fat
Diet or lack thereof is often a major contributor to an increase in belly fat.
Excess sugar, alcohol intake, lack of vegetables, fast food etc all play their part in boosting belly fat.
There are many who are pro low carb diet high fat diets (LCHF) to quickly lose weight. I personally do not agree as I believe that carbs form a very necessary part of our diet. Cutting carbs often does more harm than good.
This 14 day weight loss cycle emphasizes the importance of carbs in your diet and has been shown to provide some great results.
If you tend to have a tough time when it comes to losing your belly fat, then it’s advised to use fat burner diet pills to boost your weight loss. By using pills for your belly fat, you will then be able to lose all the belly fat that you need in no time.
Never do the same exercise all the time, because if you do, your body will get immune to that specific exercise, and they will eventually have no more effect to your body. The more you change your exercises, the faster your belly fat will disappear.
So basically, by doing the right exercises, following a sensible diet and by taking the best fat burner diet pills, you will then be able to lose all of the belly fat that you desire.
As soon as I mention sweating, the immediate impression or vision that you get is that of wet armpits, unsightly stains on clothes, underarm odors and of course sometimes even hard work or aerobics.
Not a very pleasant picture in your mind – is it.
Well I want to show you another side of sweating – that of good health and weight loss.
You see in certain circumstances sweating can be great for your health.
Sweating can reduce risk of breast cancer
Sweating may just make the difference to you as to whether you remain healthy and active, or start to become sickly.
Sweating is known to be the way that the body is able to cool itself down. There is a different function to sweating which could be of substantial importance to women especially. You see sweating is one of the ways that the body is able to remove toxins from the body. These are toxins that are able to make you sick and even get cancer.
There are enough significant reports about the link between the use of anti perspirant deodorants which prevent you from perspiring under the arms and breast cancer. It seems that the prevention of the sweat from leaving the body allows a toxin build up which in turn leads to breast cancer.
Sweat is an indication that your body temperature is rising. Now why else may your body be getting hot other than the fact that your internal temperature is rising due to an increase in internal activity such as the conversion of calories and fat to energy. It may even be due to muscle formation. That’s right, when you are sweating you may just be starting to lose some weight and tone up and that is not a bad thing is it?
A very real effect of an increased metabolism is that you may start to sweat a little more than you did before. This is great and it is advised to drink even more water to allow the sweat to also flush those toxins right out of your body so that you not only lose weight but also become more healthy at the same time. You will find that a strange effect that sweating has is that after you have had your good sweat and have washed down, you have a nice “feel good about yourself” feeling.
The Russian tradition is one of using sauna’s or steam rooms and is a practice that the Russian folk swear by for good health. This practice has spread worldwide and many attribute their good health to sweating it out in the sauna’s. A good session in the sauna followed by a nice shower leaves you feeling fresh, clean and good. Your skin takes on a new healthy tone and generally you feel so much better afterwards.
Although there may be a host of medical problems that can cause undue sweating, in general sweating is a healthy process that will assist you to remain in good health and will also help you to lose weight and feel good about yourself.
When you start to use Phen375 to boost your metabolism and lose weight, it is quite possible that you will experience a little increase in your sweating as a result of your metabolism running faster and due to the extra energy that you will have. The sweating will only leave you feeling better about yourself and you will have the knowledge that many toxins are also being removed from your body at the same time.
Utilising some of the extra energy to increase your physical exercise levels will help you to increase muscle tone and provide better shape to your figure.
Low self esteem in men is fairly common. Contrary to popular belief in women, men are really a lot more sensitive than women would credit them to be. It is just that men are so much better at being able to hide their feelings and emotions than women are.
There are countless issues that can negatively affect men and which will serve to upset the delicate balance in their self esteem.
Unlike women who blow up and cause a scene at any attack on them, the male will mostly act like it has not affected him in any way and will often quietly walk away.
The huge problem is that it has affected him and it will be on his mind forever and may possibly alter his life.
The delicate male self esteem
The most delicate area that really affects self esteem in a man has to do with his sexual performance. This is an area of weakness in most men but this can be easily addressed through the use of natural male enhancement procedures.
Testosterone, the main sex hormone in men, naturally declines with age leaving men feeling a lot less manly.
Combined with a natural drop in testosterone, penis size and performance in bed are the most prominent factors that affect the self esteem in men. The notion that a man may have that he is a little lacking in either of these two areas can cause tremendous damage and may lead not only to low self esteem, but can develop at a later stage into total withdrawal and emotional impotence.
Once a man has the idea in his head that he does not have a big penis, it is extremely difficult to change and kind words alone are not enough to be able to change this thought. If this thought is left unaddressed, it may lead to low self esteem, social withdrawal, and possibly even to emotional impotence and andropause.
Performance issues are probably the most important factor that affects men. A recent survey indicated that 85% of men last for less than 3 minutes before ejaculation. When these 85% of men compare their performance to that of the studs that last for hours in the pornographic movies, they quickly realize that they are under performers and are probably not satisfying their partners. Withdrawal from sex and any physical contact that could lead to sex is a great possibility.
Many wives are found to be placing questions on the internet that read something like this, “My husband has lost all interest in sex“, or , ” He is not as intimate as he used to be, does he still love me.” In 90% of these cases there are male performance issues that are the underlying cause of the problem.
Further fuel to the fire comes from another survey amongst married women of whom 71% confessed that they would prefer if their husbands have a bigger penis. This shows that they are not happy with the performance of their husbands and in all likelihood, their husbands do sense it and so realize that they simply do not meet the grade. A further look at the well endowed studs in the porno images further confirms their suspicions and so they start to silently withdraw.
Fight fire with fire.
Male Extra recognizes just how delicate a matter sexual performance and penis size can be to a man and so have developed the ultimate package that will take you from low self esteem and boost you into being the confident male stud that you should be.
The special male extra package consists of assistance to address every shortfall that you may think that you have and you will soon become the best that she ever had.
Find out just how confident you can become once Male Extra changes your life.
When you need to lose weight fast. If you have never been in the situation where at some stage of your life your favorite clothes begin to get a little small then I guess you are one of those fortunate enough to never seem to gain weight.
For the rest of you normal people that experience weight fluctuations it can be extremely depressing to discover that your best pair of jeans is just a little too tight for comfort.
What do you do – do you rush out and begin to shop for a new set of clothes that is a little more comfortable or do you resolve to lose weight fast so that you can get back into your clothes.
Unfortunately most people tend to have closets or suitcases packed full of those “One Day they will fit again” favorite clothes!
5 Steps to lose weight fast
The biggest mistake you can make is to rush out and buy new clothes each time your existing ones start to get a little tight. This month you will be going from a size 10 to 12. In 2 months time from a 12 to 14 and before you even realize it you will be shopping in the plus sizesection.
The problem is not that your clothes are getting too small for you – the real problem is really that you are getting toobig for your clothes.
To stop the weight gain spiral you need to take control of your weight right now!
Follow these five easy steps to take control and lose weight fast:-
Identify the cause of your weight gain.
If you have no idea why you are gaining weight then how do you ever propose to fight against it. Once you have isolated the causes of your weight gain it becomes so much easier to counteract and fight against the weight gain.
There are many factors that cause weight gain such as emotional eating, genetic causes, medications etc. Identify the cause of your weight gain and then take action.
Change your liquid intake
Most adults in the world do not drink enough water and are dehydrated. Modern lifestyles have substituted water for more tasty (and sugar laden) beverages and as a result even though you are constantly drinking liquids your body may still be dehydrated.
Make a lifestyle change and replace a good deal of your beverages with plain water ensuring that you drink at least a glass of water each hour. Not only will you quickly see the benefits in your waistline but you will also discover a vast improvement in your overall health.
Dieters who drink enough water experience as much as 25% better weight loss results.
I know you have heard this one a million times but that is because it is true. I am however not going to tell you to do a crash diet and become miserable because you can’t eat your favorite foods. In fact I personally hate the word diet and prefer to tell people to rather eat sensibly than to diet.
Diets have a nasty habit of causing rebound weight gain and that is the last problem that you want to sit with. A diet involves depriving your system of calories so that your body is forced to burn fat for it’s energy needs. The huge problem is that your body quickly adapts and slows down your metabolic rate so that it is not forced to use the fat stores for energy. As soon as you resume normal eating your metabolism is still slow and as a result your weight shoots up again.
Sensible eating is a lifestyle change that will still see you eating normal everyday foods but in such a manner as that you will not have to worry much about your weight.
Increase Exercise by 10%
You do not necessarily have to join a gym – The minute most people hear that they need to increase exercise to lose or control their weight they immediately associate it with joining a gym or going jogging or cycling everyday. For most people this is either impossible or unsustainable.
Calorie burning through extra physical activity is cumulative and as a result everything that you do throughout the day adds up and contributes to your calorie burning. Sure if you have the motivation and determination and are looking for that “cut” look then join a gym.
Use a weight loss supplement
Seriously – have you ever considered just how many factors in our modern society are contributing to your weight gain. It is no accident that the world is experiencing a massive rise in obesity.
Preservatives in your food, hormones in medications, hormones in your meats, obesogens leeching from food containers and even vitamin deficiencies etc. Life is really against you losing weight!
Using a quality slimming supplement often gives your system that little extra boost that may just make the difference between your dress sizes.
While I personally hate the entire spectrum of eating disorders that include anorexia and bulimia, and there is no way that I will ever encourage anyone to become anorexia – even the slightest bit – there is one thing that everyone has to admit about anorexics – They sure know how to lose weight fast.
Having been associated too closely with too many anorexics over the past years, I have come to understand their way of thinking and also a few of their best kept weight loss secrets.
While I am not prepared to divulge most of the secrets for fear of them being used for the wrong purposes, there is one little secret that I am going to discuss in detail as it can help many normal minded dieters to lose a couple of extra pounds without harm.
Chili keeps you thin!
Chili and hot foods that contain capsicum based herbs like chili and hot peppers, have the ability to increase your metabolism so that your body burns off calories at a far faster rate.
When I encountered my third anorexic chili fan, I started to put things together and I discovered that chili increases metabolisms and therefore when eating food with a huge amount of chili, the boost in calorie conversion to energy will result in more calories being burnt than what the food itself contains and therefore the net result will be weight lost.
Now I know that most normal people who are wishing to lose a little bit of weight are not going to rush in and start to endure the burning sensation, gastric irritation and after burn that eating chili in large doses is likely to produce.
But there is another Big Secret.
Chili need not burn or cause any unwanted side effects. Capsiplex is a new on the market slimming pill that has taken advantage of the secret of the anorexics, and is now making it available to the world in a specially formulated pill that does not have any burn or other side effects.
Capsiplex is an all natural ingredient slimming pill which contains concentrated capsicum, niacin and caffeine. One little pill a day is all you need to burn up to 278 calories more without the need for exercise or cutting down on your eating.
By simply using Capsiplex to lose weight, you harness the secret that many anorexics have kept hidden to be able to avoid gaining weight when they come to the stage that they are forced to eat food.
Is Capsiplex safe to use.
Capsiplex is 100% safe to use unless you have previously had an allergy to Chili products.
Although chili is used by many anorexics, you have no fear of becoming anorexia by using Capsiplex. Anorexia is a sickness of the mind that no slimming tablet can produce.
You will, however, discover just how easy it can be to lose weight without having to starve yourself or even embark on a strenuous exercise routine. I did forget to mention that 1 Capsiplex tablet burns as many calories as a 25 minute jog.
Capsiplex is available worldwide and as it is completely natural so no doctors prescription is necessary.
Discover how Capsiplex can help you achieve your ideal weight.
There is a difference between belly fat that builds up in your belly and the fat that is found on the rest of your body.
Subcutaneous fat, the rest of body type that is located just below the skin, is relatively harmless health wise and, apart from spoiling your figure and slightly increasing the strain on your heart and body joints, is no great health risk.
Visceral fat which is found in your belly and which surrounds all your vital organs is a completely different story.
The image to the right is that of an obese man with a BMI of approximately 40. The beige areas on the image indicate the fat deposits.
As belly fat builds up it wraps around your internal organs and begins to place pressure on them. This causes a restriction in the lungs which explains why overweight people tend to get out of breath so easily. The heart is also restricted as well as all the other vital internal organs.
The abdominal pressure build up in the man on the right at this stage would equal approximately 3 times normal atmospheric pressure. This pressure is often evidenced by normal bodily functions such as the passing of wind. Instead of being a gentle wind being released it becomes more like an explosion as the unnatural internal pressure on the colon is released.
This is still not the real danger of belly fat though. The real danger is that visceral fat releases toxins into your body and internal organs causing inflammation which then leads to heart attacks and other complications.
Belly Fat releases toxins which cause inflammation
The belly fat that is tightly wrapped around your vital organs, such as the heart and lungs, releases toxins into your body. Due to the proximity of the heart and lungs these toxins then begin to cause inflammation of the heart especially and can lead to heart attacks and strokes as well as other serious diseases.
As a pure guideline, Doctors consider a man with a waist measurement of over 102cm (40″) and a women with a measurement of over 88cm (35″) to be at an increased risk of heart problems due to the build up of belly fat.
Other factors such as smoking, alcohol consumption etc combined with excess belly fat will drastically increase the risk of heart attacks.
If you are at risk due to increased belly fat then I would suggest that you begin to change your habits from today. Do not leave it till tomorrow as the problem will not go away – it will just become worse and more of a health threat that could seriously impact on your future.
Green tea has been the subject of substantial research in relation to it’s weight loss benefits.
Each of the numerous studies that have been performed recorded that green tea is a valuable aid to weight loss and may assist in keeping you in shape.
There are also many additional health benefits attached to drinking a few cups of tea a day and as such green tea forms an important function in any health boosting program.
However Green tea is an aid to weight loss and when used solely for the purpose of weight loss it should always be a part of a program that includes a calorie restrictive diet and increased exercise.
A study published in the December 1999 American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that :-
“Green tea has thermogenic properties and promotes fat oxidation beyond that explained by its caffeine content per se. The green tea extract may play a role in the control of body composition via sympathetic activation of thermogenesis, fat oxidation, or both.”
Published in the American journal of Clinical Nutrition in the November 1999 edition was the results of a study conducted at the University of Geneva. A group of men were given a combination of Caffeine and green tea while another group was given caffeine and a placebo. The group given caffeine and tea were found to burn more calories than those given the placebo.
How green tea promotes weight loss
Apart from containing caffeine green tea is also rich in a compounds known as catechin polyphenols. These compounds increase body thermogenesis and aid in fat burning.
One such catechin polyphenol known as EGCG (epigallocatchin gallate) works synergistically with caffeine to increase metabolism and 24 hour energy expenditure.
Green tea catechins inhibit the movement of glucose in fat cells resulting in a reduction in the excess sugars and and being stored in your body as fat cells.
Safe for diabetes type 2
Green tea helps to improve insulin action and block glucose absorption. Thus it is an important aid to regulating blood sugar levels in those who suffer from Diabetes Type 2.
Many Diabetes type 2 sufferers do experience weight problems and are unable to use most of the weight loss products commercially available. Green tea is an ideal aid as it not only promotes weight loss but also assists in controlling the problem.
Which green tea is best for weight loss
With so many varieties of green tea available it is no wonder that most Westerners are confused as to which tea would be best for weight loss.
It is fairly informative to know that all green tea is derived from the Camellia Sinensis plant and the differences in quality, flavor and health benefits are due to the curing process and the area in which it is grown. Basic green tea usually contains the most catechins as it is subjected to minimal processing in order to preserve the catechins as much as possible.
When asking a Chinese person which tea is best for weight loss you will almost certainly be told that Oolong is most appropriate. Oolong is a medium oxidized tea that promotes detoxing amongst other benefits. I am also of a firm belief that Oolong is a powerful diuretic that aids in reducing water retention.
Scientific research has indicated that the higher levels of EGCG found in plain green tea would be most beneficial to your weight loss program.
I personally use Kou Tea which is a blend of some of the best tea’s that produce excellent results :-
Oolong – a slightly fermented green tea that is reputed to be best for weight loss results.
White Tea – the tender tips and buds of the plant. Very high in anti oxidants.
Pu-Erh tea – The well fermented green tea type that has numerous health benefits including cholesterol lowering.
Organic Green tea – Slightly steamed and preserved for maximum health benefit.

Testosterone is an anabolic steroid found mostly in men. It’s main purpose is to – well – make you a man. Testosterone is responsible for majority of male development which includes penile and sexual development, body and facial hair and of course muscle buildup. It is for this reason that many body builders use bodybuilding supplements to help boost Testosterone.
Natural testosterone levels in men naturally decrease with age. This leads to a whole host of undesirable effects which can result in low self esteem due to the “unmanly” effects of low testosterone.
Symptoms of Low Testosterone in Men
Low sex drive
Weight Gain – increased body fat levels
Difficulty in achieving or maintaining erections
Low semen volume
Mood changes – irritable, depressed, lack of focus
Fatigue – lack of energy
Loss of muscle mass
Decreased bone mass
Experiencing one or more of the above symptoms could indicate a lowered testosterone level. If you suspect that your Testosterone is low you can have your medical practitioner run some tests to determine your testosterone levels.
The ability to boost your testosterone levels naturally is probably the reason why some men seem to maintain their youthful vigor a lot longer than others.
11 Steps to Naturally Increase your Testosterone.
Zinc – This mineral is important for the production of testosterone in your body. Consume more dairy products and protein rich foods such as meat and fish.
Reduce sugar intake – sugar directly affects your testosterone levels so by lowering or eliminating your sugar intake you boost your testosterone levels.
Healthy fats – Coconut oil, palm oil, olive oil, avocados, nuts, butter etc all constitute healthy fats. By boosting these in your diet you will naturally boost your testosterone levels.
Lose Weight – While tests have revealed that weight loss will boost testosterone levels it is also in your own best interest health wise to keep your body in shape in order to look and feel good.
High Intensity training – Short bursts of extreme exercise will boost your testosterone levels. This is in contrast to long exercise routines such as aerobics which tend to reduce testosterone.
Strength training – Weights, squats, dead lifts etc. Increase your weights and slow down the routine to use as many muscles as possible.
Excess drinking – Reduce alcohol intake to boost your testosterone levels. We have all heard the stories about being too drunk to get it up – now you know why.
Reduce stress – Stress is a major factor that helps to reduce your testosterone. Stress produces cortisol which prevents testosterone production and also boosts belly fat. Take some “me” time every now and then to reduce your stress levels and positively improve your health.
Sleep – Sleep dramatically affects your morning testosterone levels. At least 7 to 9 hours sleep will help your testosterone to recover as well as assist in reducing stress in your lie.
Vitamin D – optimize Vitamin D levels through exposing your body to more natural light and sunlight. Vitamin D is essential in the production of sperm and in boosting your testosterone levels.
Eat more vegetables – Certain vegetables such as Broccoli and cauliflower contain Phytonutrients which can help boost testosterone production.
Supplementing with a high quality testosterone booster such as Testogen could supply your body with the needed minerals to naturally boost your testosterone levels.
Avoid Green tea – it is not for men
I know that this may sound crazy as green tea has been touted as one of the ultimate health drinks. However studies have shown that green tea can reduce your testosterone levels. I know as I have experienced this personally.
One of the more unpleasant side effects of higher testosterone levels is a sharp smell from your armpits or smelly armpits. Believe it or not this smell attracts women who sense the increase in testosterone in you.
My Green Tea Story
Business relations had me travelling to China on a regular basis with some trips being well over a month at a time. I tried as much as possible to live and eat as a local during these trips. I also used to stay at one of their apartments and not at the hotels.
After a particularly long trip and stay in China I began to notice a change in my body odor or lack thereof. I was not really worried about this as I knew from experience that the Chinese have very little body odor due to their diets. I naturally assumed that the lack of odor was due to my changed diet.
Back home I was heavily involved with the local Chinese community and so I continued largely on my Chinese style diet and continued to enjoy a lack of body odor especially under the armpits. I even stopped using any sort of underarm deodorant as I found that I simply did not need it any more.
Only when looking back did I realize that I had also experienced another change that I did not associate with the China trips. I had a distinct drop in my libido! At the time I naturally thought that this was just a temporary natural decline in libido due to excess stress and the normal married life getting older typical causes. Boy was I wrong.
Years later, as I started to develop a taste for fitness and bodybuilding, I found some interesting research which has proven that drinking green tea reduces testosterone levels in men. Testosterone is also responsible for that sharp underarm smell.
Bingo. I put 2 and 2 together and came up with 4. The long trips to China combined with ample amounts of green tea had dropped my testosterone levels resulting in a drop in libido and body smell.
Using Supplements to boost testosterone
It is often far easier to boost your testosterone with a supplement than trying to correct the wrongs of your past diet and bad habits. The boost in testosterone that you receive when using a supplement such as testogen is just way superior to any change of diet or healthy living changes.
I highly recommend that you get that sharp underarm smell back into your life and boost your libido and bodybuilding results with a great testosterone booster such as Testogen.
Is the colon cleanse just another online scam? I am sure that you have already stumbled across hundreds of web pages that have the disgusting pictures of people holding rope like substances which they claim came out of their backsides.
These sites shout out scam but is the entire colon cleanse thing a scam or is it in fact of paramount importance to your weight loss efforts and your future good health.
The Colon Cleansing Scam
While I can honestly say that colon cleansing is no scam at all, the disgusting pictures of those people with what came out of their colon are in fact a type of scam that is designed to frighten you into buying their products in case you have similar rope like substances inside of you. It is a technique called repulsion marketing.
Now before we go any further, I want to point out to you that I do not recommendthat you buy any product to cleanse your colon ever!
Nature has provided more than enough natural colon cleansing foods so that you do not have to rely on laxatives or colon cleanse tablets to do the job for you.
Why A healthy Colon Is Essential.
A healthy and clean colon is not only important to your weight loss efforts, but is equally or more important to your general health. Far too many people suffer from sluggish colons and ill health associated with poor colon functioning – especially women!
The average person carries up to the equivalent of 8 meals of compacted fecal matter in their colon.
Some people have colons that can go for as long as 14 days or longer without working.
Decayed Fecal matter lying in your colon starts to send toxins into your body instead of removing the toxins from your body.
It is no small wonder that the highest incidence of cancers (Apart from Lung Cancer) lie in the organs in direct proximity to the colon due to the infection with toxins. (Cervical cancer in women, and prostate cancer in men.)
The quicker that food is eliminated from the body, the less fat and calories absorbed by the body. A healthy person should have a minimum of 1 bowel movement a day with optimum being at 3 bowel movements.
Colon Cleansing Tips.
Maintaining a healthy colon can be a piece of cake.
1) Fresh fruit contains a natural form of hydrogen peroxide that oxygenates your colon and liquefies compacted fecal matter.
If you have ever heard of the “One Minute Cure” then you would have read about the many benefits that Hydrogen Peroxide has on your system. Natural Hydrogen peroxide contained in fruit is the best form of cleansing and 1 day of fruit only will do wonders to clean your system out.
After the initial 1 day fruit cleanse, all that is needed whenever you are having problems, is some fruit on an empty stomach.
Acai berry is one of the super fruits with great cleansing properties.
2) Beetroot is fantastic to improve your colon function. Beetroot has long been recognized as an important cancer fighting food and that it is able to regulate high blood pressure.
While I have never liked the taste of beetroot, I found the recipe below to be both tasty and enjoyable.
A delicious recipe that can be eaten cold or hot and which will get your colon working well is :-
Boil 2 medium sized beetroot for 1 hour so that they are soft and a knife easily slides through them.
Allow to cool.
Peel Beetroot and then slice into small slices.
Chop one small onion into small pieces and lightly fry in sunflower oil until golden brown. Add the beetroot and allow to simmer for 15 minutes.
Serve either hot or cold.
Modern diets consist of many foods that clog the colon and prevent correct colon function. By simply changing your diet to include more fresh fruit and vegetables and drinking sufficient water, you will not only improve your weight loss program immensely, but will be improving your general health as well.
Healthy eating can change your life. It is not so much a matter of how much we eat but more a case of what we eat that causes us to gain weight.
If you have read any of my other articles you will already know that I consider the word “diet” to be a dirty 4 letter word. I am of the opinion that in general diets increase weight problems more than they help you to lose weight.
Eating healthy as we know it may also not really be as healthy as we are led to believe that it is. Recent research has shown that some of the so called healthy eating tips that we have been brought up to believe are in fact a cause of other problems.
Eg. Drink skim milk or low fat milk – Milk is filled with vitamins and many of these are oil soluble. They require some fat to be absorbed into your system and by using skim or low fat milk these vital vitamins and nourishment are just passing straight through your body.
The same problem exists with low fat salad dressings etc.
Sensible eating far better for weight loss
Eating sensibly is much better than trying to maintain a diet. Diet is a regimen that limits and restricts you and is not sustainable for any period of time. As soon as you stop dieting the weight tend to come back worse than ever before.
Sensible eating is a sustainable lifestyle change that allows you to live life normally without worrying about your weight or having to unnecessarily restrict yourself in the amount of food that you are going to eat.
All food is good and is a source of nutrition that your body needs as long as it is taken in moderation. (McDonalds excluded)
5 Points to increased sensible eating
Regular meals – Eat three main meals a day and plan healthy snacks for in between. Eat these meals at regular times so that your body knows exactly when it will get nourishment. Never skip meals! This will allow your body to boost your metabolic rate and you will experience increased fat burning and improved energy levels.
A little fat is ok – A small amount of fat in moderation with other foods is fine and can help to increase the uptake of nourishment. Do avoid fatty or fried foods opting also for the leaner cuts of meat. In general fat tends to turn to fat but at the same time fats do contain some vital nutrition not found elsewhere.
Sweet increases hunger – Natural and processed sugars cause an insulin spike and a quick but short lived boost to energy. As soon as this spike is over your body immediately wants more which is evidenced in a craving for sweet goods. Avoid sugary items and when eating natural sugars such as fruit try to eat with a little natural fats such as nuts. This helps to reduce the spike and prevent the cravings.
Carbohydrates – Carbohydrates are a valuable source of energy for your body but an excess in carbs could cause insulin spikes and an increase in hunger shortly afterwards. 3 Small portions of carbs a day is far better than 1 big portion.
Increased vegetables – Vegetables are a vital source of nutrition. Try to increase your vegetable intake and even replace some of your daily fruit portions with vegetables instead. The results will not only show on your waistline but you will notice an improvement in skin condition as well.
Through all the above healthy eating please also remember to drink a glass of water each hour and especially with or just before a meal.
Using food to increase your libido is the natural way to spark up your love life. The food that you eat has the ability to either decrease or enhance your libido.
Diet plays a very important role in sexual function and deficiencies can disrupt and impair your sexual function.
Sadly, mainly due to poor diet and a natural decrease in testosterone, more than 60% of men over the age of 50, experience erection or prostrate problems that can be reversed if they seek help.
Food that boosts libido.
In order to boost your libido, it is best to maintain a diet that contains plenty of fruit and vegetables and lean protein. Cut out fatty meats and fried foods and snacks. Avoid foods containing white flour and chemicals.
Turkish Viagra. Take half a dried fig and push a walnut into the middle of it. Serve a plate of them as snacks to rapidly boost libido. Sellers of the snack at Turkish markets promise that one plate of these is sufficient for a five time a night routine.
Spinach. This vegetable has been recognized for it’s aphrodisiac qualities for centuries. Spinach is one of those vegetables that can improve your male libido fairly quickly. It seems that Popeye the Sailor Man might just have had a point when he ate all those cans of spinach.
Oysters. This delicacy has long been recognized as a boost to libido. Part of the secret is that oysters are rich in zinc and zinc is one of the major deficiencies occurring in men. A male orgasm leads to an average loss of approximately 15mg of zinc. Sadly, normal diets do not replace the zinc. If you are unable to eat oysters then be sure to take a zinc supplement.
Pomegranate.In recent research published in the Daily Sun, researchers found that pomegranate juice increase male libido by as much as 200%. Drink one glass of fresh pomegranate juice daily. Unfortunately pomegranate juice is not always readily available. Male Extra pills contain 500mg of pomegranate 70% ellagic. which is said to be the equivalent of 500 glasses of pomegranate juice.
Herbs and Spices. Certain herbs and spices have been used for centuries as aphrodisiacs and treatments for many sexually related problems. The Chinese were famous for their various concoctions that contained herbs such as Tongkat Alli and Ginseng, just to mention a few. Male Extra has researched the best herbs from around the globe and has produced a pill containing a special blend of complementing herbs and spices that will increase your libido by as much as 200%.
Ginger. Ginger is a special herb that is worth separate mentioning. Ginger increases blood circulation rapidly and a grating of fresh ginger daily can do miracles to a libido. Some also find the burning sensation of ginger to be a turn on and even the smell of freshly grated ginger is enough to get them worked up.
Chilies. Chilies produce endorphins which are the happy chemicals of the body. A rush of endorphins produced by chili can be a great start to a good evening. Some people say that the burning sensation that can be transferred during oral stimulation is a major turn on in itself. Chili is also a great Fat Burner.
Chocolate. Chocolate is one of the favorite aphrodisiacs amongst women. Dark chocolate is the best. Besides the aphrodisiac qualities of chocolate, the mental stimulation is also achieved and as you are all well aware, sex starts in the brain. A little spoiling with gifts of chocolate can go a long way to producing the increase in physical and mental stimulation needed.
Red wine. A glass of red wine does wonders to the female libido as it frees the bound form of testosterone and serves to also relax her. Do be careful not to drink too much. One glass is usually sufficient.
Having too much red wine can produce the opposite effect as she passes out and spends the night in a drunken stupor that really does not produce any positive results.
Nuts and Turkey Meat. Nuts and turkey are rich in Arginine, which is an essential additive to any good libido enhancer. Maybe the Americans do a little bit more than just feast on Thanksgiving Day. Many nuts are also rich in the good cholesterol and so help to improve cholesterol levels as well. Male Extra contains sufficient Arginine to set you on fire.
Conclusion to Foods that Increase your Libido.
The above list of foods to increase your libido is by no means a complete list. In general eating healthy and balanced meals combined with a good exercise routine, is sufficient to keep you sexually active and fit.
Male Extra is a herbal pill that increases male libido by as much as 200% through the use of natural ingredients combined with exercises to ensure healthy functioning of the male organ.
Green Tea originates from China but is now grown in many parts of the world. It is produced from the leaf of the Camellia Sinensis plant which is then processed with the minimal amount of oxidation taking place in order to preserve it’s health giving benefits.
“It is better to be deprived of food for 3 days than to go without green tea for just 1 day” – Ancient Chinese Proverb
Green tea has many alleged and proven health benefits which include :-
Lowers Blood Pressure
There are literally hundreds of different types of green and black tea but all the varieties originate from the same Camellia Sinensis plant and are then processed in different ways in order to produce tea with differing flavors and health qualities. These processes produce varying tea’s which range from aromatic tea to some that are almost black in color and which produces a reddish color beverage.
White Tea, for instance, is produced only from the buds and very young leaves. The name white tea comes from the little white hairs found on these buds and leaves. It undergoes a very quick steaming process and is dried and packed. It is considered to be the most powerful of all the green tea’s and contains the highest percentage of beneficial Polyphenols and catechins such as EGCG.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, Pu-Erh undergoes a very lengthy oxidation process and is often processed into discs or bricks of tea. In the ancient times Pu-Erh went through a curing process lasting over a month and then was packed and stored to mature for years. The longer the tea aged the better tasting it became and the more valuable it was.
Green Tea as an aid to Weight Loss
A study published in the December 1999 American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that :-
“Green tea has thermogenic properties and promotes fat oxidation beyond that explained by its caffeine content per se. The green tea extract may play a role in the control of body composition via sympathetic activation of thermogenesis, fat oxidation, or both.”
Green tea extracts have recently become a very popular ingredient in many weight loss supplements due to it’s alleged weight loss benefits.
Numerous studies have indicated that green tea is highly beneficial to weight loss with some reports showing that it may boost your metabolic rate by as much as 4%.
One of the important principles of using tea for slimming is to ensure that you drink a cup of warm to hot tea after a meal. This will help to break down fat content in the meal that you have eaten.
Kou Tea contains a combination of the highest quality green tea’s which are alleged to be most beneficial for weight loss.
By adding just 3 to 5 cups a day of the Kou Tea Blend to your weight loss schedule you could drastically increase your weight loss results and improve your overall health. More information
Green Tea a great option for diabetics
Apart from it’s hundreds of other health benefits, green tea is also beneficial to diabetics as well. Various researches have shown that green tea regulates blood sugar levels in people with Diabetes Type 2. It aids through :-
Blocking Glucose absorption
Improving Insulin actions
Regulating blood sugar levels
By drinking 3 to 5 cups of green tea a day you will not only improve your diabetic condition but may also benefit from the weight loss provided through green tea.
Anti Aging Properties of Green Tea
One of the factors that never failed to amaze me on my frequent trips to China was just how young the Chinese people appeared. On average they looked 10 to 15 years younger than their western counterparts and were also characterized by their clear complexions.
One of the big anti aging secrets of the Chinese is green tea combined with a healthy diet rich in vegetables. They love their vegies.
Green tea is contains an abundance of anti oxidants which explains part of the reason as to why it is effective in anti aging.
It is also a powerful anti inflammatory agent which helps reduce any inflammations in your skin thereby increasing radiance and overall skin condition.
It also has an inhibitory action on collagenase which is a process that breaks down collagen thereby improving skin elasticity and reducing wrinkles.
Cholesterol – the Silent Killer
High cholesterol levels is a problem that affects millions in the Western world. Many people fail to keep a check on their cholesterol levels as it is a condition that is neither seen nor noticed until it strikes – and then it can kill through heart attacks or cause strokes which affect the rest of your life.
One of the great benefits of green tea is that it lowers bad cholesterol and increases good cholesterol. This helps to protect you from the risk of heart disease and strokes.
NB : People using Coumadin (Warfarin) should not drink green tea due to it’s high vitamin K content.
Loose tea compared to tea bags
The Western world has a preference for the convenience supplied by tea bags. As a result a number of green tea products are now available in tea bags in order to cater for the preference of the market.
The tea packed in tea bags is often of a lower quality and the tea bag also tends to restrict the steeping of the tea resulting in reduced flavor and reduced health benefits.
Green tea normally consists of whole leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant which are rolled and dried.
When loose leaf tea is steeped in water these dried leaves unfold into full leaves allowing maximum release of flavor and all the health benefiting nutrients found in the tea.
In the Far East tea bags are not used. The Chinese only drink top quality whole leaf tea due to the superior flavor and benefits supplied. However tea bags are far more convenient to the average westerner.
Kou Tea has combined the convenience of a tea bag with 2 grams of high quality green tea blend in each tea bag.
What is in Kou Tea
The Kou Tea special wellness blend contains a special blend of 4 different high quality tea’s ensuring you of high quality and maximum health benefits.
Organic Green tea – Great full leaf tea that has been slightly steamed and dried in a full leaf form with minimal oxidation to best preserve all the goodness and benefits of the tea leaves.
Oolong Tea – A green tea that has been slightly oxidized. Oolong is reported to be the best of the green tea range to aid in weight loss.
Pu-Erh Tea – Red to black highly oxidized tea variety. Pu-Erh is a highly aromatic tea that has undergone a lengthy oxidation process and which produces a reddish color tea that is great in taste. Pu-Erh has many benefits including weight loss, detox and to reduce cholesterol making it a natural addition to our wellness blend.
White Tea – The newly formed tips of the tea tree are the strongest and purest green tea available. Very high in anti oxidants and just perfect for anti aging and to keep free radicals in check.
How can something that looks and tastes so good be so bad! Discover why sugar is bad or you.
We all know that sugar is high in calories and when we are dieting it is essential to reduce calorie intake as much as possible. However on the other hand our body also needs calories to function so why is sugar so bad then?
Sugary and sweet foods items containing either refined or natural sugars are great for a quick energy boost and to energize you a little but that is exactly where the problem lies.
Sugar leads to cravings
Sugar is a source of calories that is easily converted by your body into available energy. With this rush of fresh energy also comes an insulin spike.
This spike in insulin and energy is quickly used up and all of a sudden your body wants more!! It begins to crave that sweet and you will start to experience cravings for sugary treats and sweets etc.
Popular fat burner diet pills such as PhenQ often cause people to lose their sweet cravings. The reason for this is that fat burners cause a sustained release of energy and improved fat to energy conversion and as a result you body no longer needs the “rush” caused by eating sweetened foods.
How to overcome sweet cravings
Overcoming sweet cravings may be a lot easier than you think. All it requires is just a small bit of determination and then substitution. Substitute the sweets with something a little healthier without too much sugar and soon the cravings will start to go away.
I personally love sweet coffee and can drink cup after cup without a problem. When I am on a coffee drinking binge it is no problem to drink 1 to 2 cups an hour right throughout the day. If I don’t have my coffee with 3 teaspoons of sugar I start to get thirsty and agitated. My body is craving the sugar.
Occasionally I would drink a cup of Rooibos tea without sugar. I soon discovered that after drinking rooibos tea without sugar it would take a long time for me to get thirsty again. In fact I more than halved my normal consumption of fluids by drinking unsweetened beverages!
By substituting a craving with a healthy alternative your cravings are quickly brought under control and soon disappear altogether.
When eating natural sugars such as fruit by adding a little natural fats like nuts the sugar spike will be controlled and you are less likely to experience sugar spikes and cravings.
Eating chili to lose weight. Chili and red hot peppers could soon become your best weight loss friend. Although it has been one of the secrets of anorexics for years, Chili has more recently began to become one of the most popular weight loss supplements.
Capsaicin, the ingredient that provides the fiery sensation, has been proven to increase body thermo genesis, increase calorie burning and aid in further weight loss through the increase in Dopamine and release of Norepinephrine and Epinephrine which are your main fat burning hormones.
Apart from it’s amazing weight loss benefits, chili has also been proven to be one of the most beneficial herbs with it’s hundreds of benefits which range from being antiseptic, anti inflammatory, stops heart attacks, treats certain cancers, relieves arthritis and hundreds more beneficial uses.
How chili aids weight loss
Capsaicin (also called Capsicum) consumption causes a release of endorphins in your body. Endorphins are best described as morphine from within. Only 3 main factors are rumored to release endorphins – Chili, Good Laughter and Good Sex.
Apart from the natural “good feeling” and pain killing effects that these endorphins produce they also cause an increase in the levels of Dopamine. Dopamine is the hormone responsible for appetite and as a result your appetite is reduced and you tend to be satisfied for longer.
Dopamine increases result in increased levels of Norepinephrine and Epinephrine which are your 2 main fat burning hormones.
Studies have indicated that when chili is consumed 30 minutes before exercise you could burn up to 12 x more calories during and after your workout.
Many people experience an increase in colon function when first eating hot chili. While it may initially produce a slight burn down under the increased colon function is a highly desirable side effect for weight loss and improved health. The quicker food moves through your digestive tract the less fats, calories and toxins are extracted from the matter passing through your body.
Capsaicin Now an Ingredient in Many Popular Weight Loss Pills
Capsaicin as a diet pill ingredient first became popular with the highly publicized release of Capsiplex diet pills in the UK.
Subsequently a number of highly successful diet pills including PhenQ and Phen375 soon followed the pattern and began to include Capsaicin in their formulations with excellent results being achieved.
A added benefit of using Capsaicin in a weight loss pill is that it opens up all the small capillaries, increasing circulation in your body and allowing the other weight loss ingredients to reach further into your body.
For those dieters who are unable to handle the burn of chili the diet pills that contain Capsaicin are a good alternative. Due to the encapsulation of Capsaicin there is no negative side effects such as gastric irritation or burn in the mouth etc.
The question dodiet pills work is a little vague as there are so many weight loss pills of varying strengths available on the market today.
In a vague answer to the broad questions posed, diet pills are an aid to weight loss and are designed to make it easier for you to lose weight.
When it comes down to the bottom line of diet pills it is essential to know that there are a number of diet pills that simply do not work and then there are a number of diet pills that work but may just not work for you in your particular case.
Before buying a diet pill I thoroughly recommend that you adequately research the product before buying.
Which Diet Pills do Work?
Before we are able to discuss which diet pills do really work we need to look at the different types of diet pills and how they function. If you need to take a fat burner for your specific weight problem and instead use a fat binder diet pill the chances are that you will not enjoy beneficial weight loss results.
There are four main categories of diet pills each with their own distinctive manner of working :-
These are probably by far the most popular type of diet pill and if you are not sure which diet pill to use then you would more than likely benefit the most from a fat burner.
Fat burner diet pills increase your metabolism so that your body burns off calories and stored fat at a far faster rate. Normally you will experience a tremendous boost in your energy levels when using a fat burner diet pill.
Some of the most well known diet pills in the world were in the fat burner class. Phentermine, Thinz, Nobese no1, Duromine, Sibutramine based pills etc are all amongst the old style fat burners. These have however mostly been banned from over the counter sales due to negative side effects.
The good news is that there is a new generation of fat burners available that do not have any negative side effects but which produce incredible weight loss results.
This category of diet pill is for a limited sector of dieters. The fat binder diet pill is designed to reduce the fat content in the food that you eat resulting in less fat and calorie uptake by your body. Some fat binders have been clinically proven to remove as much as 28% of fat.
Fat binder diet pills are generally very safe diet pills to use with no side effects due to their natural formulation. In addition due to their ability to reduce fat content they also lower the potential cholesterol intake resulting in increased health. If you are inclined to eat unhealthy food or food that has a high fat intake then you should consider using a fat binder diet pill.
While there are a couple of products that are solely appetite suppressants such as the Hoodia Gordonii containing range of natural diet pills most of the better fat burner diet pills have fantastic appetite suppressing qualities as well.
Your appetite is controlled by the hormone Dopamine. Fat burner diet pills gently alter your hormones including your Dopamine levels to increase fat burning and hence they are a valuable aid in controlling and reducing your appetite at the same time.
A number of the super fruits type of diet pills like Acai Berry are designed to detox your body. Toxins in your body slow down your metabolism and result in weight gain. By clearing these toxins from your body your metabolism is able to increase and so you burn off fat faster.
The negative is that these products do tend to clear the toxins by making your stomach run. Anal leaking is not an uncommon experience amongst users of detox products.
Eating fruit in the early morning on an empty stomach combined with drinking sufficient pure water often provides the same detox benefits.
Not all diet pills have the same function and as a result do not produce the same results. If you are unsure of which category diet pill you should use then I would suggest using a multipurpose 3 in 1 weight loss pill such as PhenQ.
One of the most effective ways to ever lose weight is to simply boost your metabolism so that your body burns more calories and the calories are unable to turn into fat stored in your body.
You often hear that magic word called metabolism and have heard it mentioned many times in weight loss articles and when speaking to friends, but do you really understand what the metabolism is and how it works to aid you in weight loss.
Understanding your Metabolism.
Without taking you into a full biology lesson, I want to briefly explain to you what your metabolism is and how it works. Briefly, your metabolism is the mechanism that your body has to convert calories or fat into energy. It can be likened to a furnace similar to the one that drives the old steam trains. The calories are thrown into the fire and produce heat. The heat produces steam which is then the power which propels the steam train.
As we start to age, our metabolism slows down due to a number of factors. The estimate is that the metabolism of the average person will slow down by anything up to 30%. This results in a person who maintains the same diet and exercise routine having as much as 30% more fat building capability. No wonder we start to get rolls and belly fat.
Oh, if only life were so simple that we could simply throw more calories into the furnace when we need to. Our bodies are just slightly more technical than the old steam train but it is possible to manipulate your body into using more calories and therefore into burning more fat.
You can think of your body as being a fairly sophisticated computer controlled furnace. The computer (Your Brain) registers when energy is going to be needed and when more calories need to be thrown into the furnace or when there is too many calories available to be burnt and then places these calories into storage (Fat).
The prime energy using part of our body is the muscle. Muscle needs energy to move and to stay toned. Muscle uses energy to reproduce cells needed. If the muscle is the main consumer of energy then we need to look at and dispel a myth that we have been taught in the weight loss sector.
Prime Myth. Dieting is the best way to lose weight.
Dieting has always been lauded as the best way to lose weight and diets are literally what drives the 49 Billion Dollar dieting industry. Every day there is a new fashion diet that promises that you will lose weight when you purchase their amazing diet. Most diets work on the basis of reducing calorie intake which is fine – for a short while.
Reducing calorie intake forces the body to initially use fat stored to power the furnace. However this is a short term solution and the computer soon registers that there is insufficient new fuel to drive the furnace and so it turns down the furnace heat. It actually forces a slowing down of your metabolism. Soon muscles start to deteriate and become more flabby.
Continued dieting results in a situation where your metabolism is completely slowed down and so any food that you eat is immediately converted to fat. As you are well aware there are some people with healthy metabolisms that can eat anything and not gain weight, whist otherrs gain weight just looking at food. This is where weight loss pills can help so much to speed up your metabolism.
In order to lose weight easily and keep the weight off you need to increase your metabolism and not cause it to go into slumber mode, which is what most diets do.
In the fat burning process of the body, there is a transition where calories are turned into available energy, just like in the steam train where water is turned into steam. The process involves your hormones as well and your bodies ability to stimulate cell regeneration in muscle.
Phen375, a strong fat burner diet pill, will help get your metabolism into full gear. Phen375 comes with a diet system that is designed to help you to start controlling your furnace’s computer and to get the furnace of your metabolism burning at full power, thus converting the maximum amount of calories into energy.
When you wake up in the morning, one of the most important things to do is to start your day with some breakfast. This is a signal to your metabolism to fire up for the day. Next a couple of sips of coffee helps to stimulate your metabolism a little more.
Mid morning is time to get your metabolism revved up with a small meal to remind your body that there is no need to store energy in the form of fat as there is more energy being placed into the fire. In all you will be slowly converted into eating six smaller meals a day of foods that are designed to speed up your metabolism and not store fat.

Can I use laxatives to lose weight? I have always suffered from an irregular colon and lately it seems that I pick up weight easily. Will laxatives help me to overcome these problems that I have?
A huge amount of women suffer from the problem of a irregular colon and of course every woman’s nightmare, which is weight gain. When these problems occur simultaneously, as they usually do, then it seems logical to resort to the use of laxatives to treat both problems at once. But is this a treatment or just the beginning of another problem.
When you suffer from an irregular or sluggish colon, the food that passes through your system takes a lot longer to pass through. This results in discomfort from the compacted waste in your colon, low immune systems as a result of toxins being absorbed into your body from the putrefying waste, and excess weight both as a result of the extra waste in your body, but also the body has so much more time to absorb the nutrients and fat from the food in the colon.
The huge problem associated with this lies in the toxic waste. If the food lies in your body for an extended time, it start to become toxic. The toxins absorbed by your body will result in your body becoming toxin laden, sluggish and generally weight gain becomes a problem The weight gain is usually as a result of a slowing down of your metabolism and so your body no longer burns the calories but rather stores them in the form of fat.
Laxatives do not Help but create other problems!
When using laxatives to combat colon problems, you are merely replacing one evil with another. Laxatives are habit forming and so when you use them in excess to combat the weight gain caused by a sluggish colon, your system becomes used to the laxatives and so the normal function of the colon ceases. You then find a situation where you have to increase the daily dosage of laxatives on a regular basis just to keep your stomach working. Some people are using as many as 70 laxatives or more a day because of this.
Laxatives irritate the colon walls and flush your colon with fluids taken from the body. These are essential fluids that contain many minerals that are necessary to the body. This flushing results in mineral depletion and imbalances and also water retention. The body becomes accustomed to all the fluid being flushed out and so the minute it receives fluid it stores it in the form of water retention. The body also uses this tactic with food and so any calories consumed are quickly stored as fat and so weight fluctuations are intensified.
What is the answer?
When we look at the facts you will notice that 95% of people who suffer with colon problems and weight problems follow a poor diet and eat the wrong foods. A couple of small changes to the eating habits and diets will result in a colon that functions better, reduced weight and an increase in metabolism.
Fruit contains a natural form of hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide releases oxygen into the colon and this oxygen is able to liquefy the colon contents and flush the colon without any adverse effect. Many vegetables have the same effect and therefore a change in diet and eating habits could be the answer to all of your colon problems. Some fresh fruit on a empty stomach is usually all that is needed to get your stomach going again.
Unfortunately the poor diet that you have followed in the past will have taken it’s toll on your metabolism and so in order to get your metabolism up again, you may need a little help.
Phen375 has spent years researching the answer and have developed a special diet designed to really get your metabolism back into top gear. When you follow the diet supplied by Phen375 and use their water management plan combined with the fat burning pills, you will find that suddenly you start to lose extreme amounts of weight and feel so healthy and full of energy again, that you will be wondering why you have never tried this before.
You see, to merely lose weight by starvation or purging is easy, but you will never feel good about yourself and will do damage to your health. The minute that you stop you will also start to gain weight just as fast or faster than you lost it.
Because the Phen375 system increases the speed at which your body burns off calories, you need not starve or purge, but simply follow their plan and you will be losing at least 3 to 5 lbs. per week.
