Chia Seeds The Fat Flusher

Chia seeds are now more commonly found in health food stores. Soaked in water they make a tasty treat like eating tapioca. They are great fat flusher and are easy to add to a variety of dishes. Consume 2 to 3 tbsp. daily. Sprinkle them on your veggies or add them to dressings, mixed drinks, stews and soups. I personally just drink them in my pomegranite or cherry juice with a squeeze of lime. They are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Chia seeds also are high in fiber rich in calcium, iron, and molybednum. Read more:

Sensa Truth in Labeling

The main ingredient in Sensa is bugs. Yep thats right bugs. Carmine is red in color and is made, according to the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), from 70,000 female cochineal insects being killed to make a single pound of dye. Although it is listed as a non-toxic item, it can give allergic reactions.

Buy What You Need

Instead of cutting out your favorite foods altogether, be a slim shopper. Buy one fresh bakery cookie instead of a box, or a small portion of candy from the bulk bins instead of a whole bag. You can enjoy your favorite foods, but you must do so in moderation.

When To Exercise

Exercise before a meal will raise your blood sugar levels. It is better to wait 60 mins after a meal to exercise to better raise the heart and metabolism rate so they food you ate is used by the system instead of just sitting there.

When to Go

You should have a bowel movement within 4-6 hours of eating, if not, then you did not get a proper daily intake of fiber. Most weight gain is due to 2+ pounds of fecal matter in the colon. The best fiber for weight loss is Inulin powder or Glucomann Powder ( Konjac Root). See the courtesy link for example. Inulin Powder

Have A Big Lunch

Make Lunch your largest meal of the day. You will have the rest of the day to burn off calories.

Your Beverage Counts

Watch your calories in what you drink. Some drinks can be the caloric equivalent of an entire meal. Specialty coffees and alcoholic drinks are often more than 500 calories. Even the calories in juice and soft drink can be added quickly to the waist line. The worst is that the calories in liquids are not limiting hunger. We will not eat less after we get many calories with a drink.

Truth about Diet Food Labels

Dine With A Mirror

Hang a mirror opposite your seat at the table. One study found that eating in front of mirrors slashed the amount people ate by nearly one-third. Seems having to look yourself in the eye reflects back some of your own inner standards and goals, and reminds you of why you’re trying to lose weight in the first place.

Cheerios Diet Myth

Cheerios does not lower cholesterol. The fact that you subtituted fried food or sugar in the morning is what lowered it. You can open up your breakfast choices to incorporate more and liberate yourself from the cereal bowl.

Watch Your Soup Intake

If you are having soup. Make sure it contains 600mg of sodium or less. Soup containing more will gather water weight and pack on the pounds.

Hold the Juice !

Regular fruit juice intake may increase diabetes risk by 50% due to massive sugar hits. "Also, the fiber -- which is what helps you fill up faster -- is left out of the juice. By making this one swap you'll save calories every day."

Eat Breakfast !

Eating breakfast kick-starts your metabolism -- especially since we don't eat for around ten hours overnight,Keep your carbohydrate intake light at breakfast if you're trying to lose weight; think one slice of wholegrain toast instead of two, and include beans or spinach rather than the empty calories of white bread, jam and butter.
