Healthy Meal Plan For Weight Loss | 5-Day Free Menu

Nov 12th, 2018
Comments Off on Healthy Meal Plan For Weight Loss | 5-Day Free Menu

This 5-day sample meal plan for weight loss is all about eating more, not less.

You learn about lots of healthy, filling meals and snacks that can help you not only weigh less but also feel your very best.

This healthy meal plan for weight loss includes all kinds of satisfying, hunger-curbing foods like mustard-coated salmon, sweet potatoes, and hearty Italian-style soups.

By switching from a bowl of cold, dried cereal to one of hot whole-grain cereal and fruit, youd take in approximately 100 fewer calories each day. That one simple change to your daily diet could help you drop about 10 pounds in one year. Plus, hot cereal has more staying power. It tends to fill you up better and longer than dried cereal.

If desired, add a little nonfat milk or soymilk and a packet of sugar substitute (a good choice is Splenda).

1 steamed 6-inch corn tortilla with fresh or grilled vegetables (such as onions, green bell peppers, and tomatoes) and no-added-salt salsa.

Warm the tortilla between slightly moistened paper towels in the microwave for about 1 minute, then top with veggies and salsa; fold

For your salads, break out of the lettuce-and-tomato box. All kinds of veggies and fruit can go into your salad. Try diced sweet potatoes, yellow squash, red bell peppers, cucumbers, red cabbage, red onions, and more.

And always keep in mind that no oil, even so-called good ones, should be considered a weight-loss food. Coating your salad with oil can tally up as many calories as a scoop of premium ice cream.

Make your own. Its easy! From one 14-ounce can of no-salt-added cannelini beans, spoon out 2 tablespoons of beans. Puree the rest. In a medium nonstick pot, saut 5 cloves of chopped garlic until translucent. Add 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth and 1 head of escarole, chopped, or a package of frozen chopped spinach. Simmer for about 15 minutes. Add pureed beans, red pepper flakes and black pepper, to taste, and cook 1 minute longer. Garnish with the beans you spooned out plus, if you desire, a little chopped red bell pepper. Refrigerate or freeze what you dont eat for easy soup prep for a future lunch or dinner.

Especially popular among our guests at the Pritikin Longevity Center are Greek-style yogurts such as Oikos and Fage. So rich and creamy tasting! If you need a little sweetness to cut the tart flavor, simply add diced banana, or stir in 1 packet of Splenda

A gigantic Farmers Market-style salad with a variety of fresh seasonal produce and fresh herbs, such as fresh baby arugula and radicchio, and red wine vinegar sassed up with a little horseradish. Enjoy visiting your local Farmers Market every week and asking the vendors, Whats new and tasty this week? What would make great ingredients for my salad?

Get the Recipe

When dining out and ordering fish, request that your fish not be salted or basted in calorie-dense ingredients like olive oil and butter. Healthier cooking options include steaming, broiling, or grilling.

Contrary to popular belief, potatoes are a great food for helping you lose weight. Its what we put on top of our potatoes butter, cheese, and bacon bits that turn them into waistline-busting foods.

Egg white omelet stuffed with 1 cup of assorted grilled vegetables, such as onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, and broccoli, and a dollop of nonfat ricotta cheese.

In a nonstick skillet misted with a little cooking oil spray, stir fry until brown diced baked potatoes with sliced onions, sliced green bell pepper, freshly ground black pepper, and paprika.

Yes! Cocoa can be part of a healthy meal plan for weight loss! For cocoa: Mix nonfat milk or soymilk, 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, and 1 packet of sugar substitute, such as Splenda (if desired).

Like vegetables, fruits are fabulous weight-loss foods because theyre big foods, that is, foods that are bulked up by lots of fiber and water. With big foods, youll be eating a lot of food (which will satisfy your hunger) but not a lot of calories.

Heres a great example: For the same number of calories that are in a handful of peanuts (about two ounces), you can eat 2 pounds of strawberries (about five of those green boxes that strawberries come in.) Eating big foods like strawberries, salads, and other fruits and vegetables can prevent hunger from taking over and taking you places you dont want to go

Big salad of baby greens with Pritikin-Style Thousand Island Dressing, which has less than one-quarter the calories and sodium of regular Thousand Island Dressing. What a gift for your heart and waistline! To make dressing, combine thoroughly the following: cup plain fat-free Greek yogurt, cup fat-free sour cream, cup unsweetened, low-sodium ketchup (good brand is Westbrae), teaspoon oregano, and teaspoon granulated garlic.

Sandwich of fresh roasted turkey breast (3 to 4 ounces) with 2 slices of low-sodium, whole-grain bread with assorted veggies, like baby greens and sliced tomatoes. Smear the bread with 1 tablespoon of low-sodium stone-ground mustard.

Did you know that bread and rolls are the No. 1 source of salt in the American diet, accounting for more than twice as much sodium as salty junk food like potato chips? Thats why its so important to look for low-sodium varieties of bread (a good brand is Food for Life).

Keep stocked in your refrigerator or freezer a box of veggie burgers (look for low-sodium varieties). Veggie burgers are a much better choice for your waistline and heart than ground meat. Veggie patties have only about half the calories of regular red meat patties, and zero heart-hurting saturated fat. Plus, theyre so easy to cook just one or two minutes in the microwave. While toasting your whole-wheat bun, take from your pantry a jar of roasted red bell peppers and top your veggie patty with a couple of luscious slices. Smear your bun with a little low-sodium Dijon mustard.

1 or more cups (its hard to go overboard on fresh veggies!) of steamed fresh vegetables, such as asparagus, broccoli, and/or cauliflower, with lemon juice and sauted garlic.

Hot whole-grain cereal, such as oatmeal, cracked wheat, barley or polenta, made with 1 cup nonfat milk or soymilk and 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries.

There are many great choices of whole-grain hot cereals; just make sure you buy one with no added sugar or salt.

If desired, add a little nonfat milk or soymilk and 1 packet of sugar substitute (a good choice is Splenda).

Look for fat-free low-sodium varieties, or make your own.

Get the Recipe

Did you know that four ears of corn has the same number of calories as one medium serving of French fries? (The corn tastes better, too.)

cup 1% no-salt-added cottage cheese with cup to 1 cup fresh diced fruit, or use pop-top canned fruits packed in juice or water, no sugar added.

A big salad of baby spinach and other fresh veggies, such as sliced carrots and tomatoes, topped with your favorite canned no-salt-added beans. Toss salad with about teaspoon of wasabi (to taste) and 3 to 4 tablespoons of rice vinegar.

Look for no-salt-added varieties of canned beans since rinsing the beans through a colander removes only 30% of the added sodium.

Get the Recipe

Give your brown rice a nice savory spin by adding freshly minced garlic. At the last minute, add in fresh herbs like thyme and Italian parsley and just about any vegetable you have on hand, like chopped cucumbers, celery, onions, and tomatoes.

Red Bean and Leftover Veggie Soup

While there are probably plenty of pre-made bean and veggie soup options that just need a few minutes to heat through on the stovetop, making your own soup is really easyand a great idea for your health. Homemade soups are much lower in sodium about 100 milligrams or less per 2-cup serving. By contrast, 2 cups of many canned soups contain a blood-pressure-busting 1,200 milligrams or more, a worrisome amount considering that health experts recommend consuming no more than 1,500 milligrams of sodium for the entire day. This is also a great way to use up all those leftover vegetables in your crisperpretty much anything works in this soup.

Directions:Put into a soup pot 1 can of no-salt-added red beans (drained), 4 cups low-sodium vegetable juice like Knudsens Very Veggie Low-Sodium Juice, 2 to 3 teaspoons oregano or Italian-style seasoning, and 2 cups of any veggies you already have sitting in the refrigerator bin, such as carrots, celery, and onions. Rough-chop the vegetables into bite-size pieces and bring to a boil, simmering until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 10 to 15 minutes. If desired, top with a tablespoon of fat-free sour cream.

Put together a sandwich of tuna (canned preferably low-sodium, light, and packed in water) with 1 tablespoon nonfat mayo or nonfat plain yogurt, chopped celery, and onions, topped with baby spinach or peppery arugula, on 100% whole-wheat bread (low-sodium)

Get the Recipe

Enjoy the rich flavor of sweet potatoes? While home on Sundays, cook up a batch. Wrap each one in foil and bake for about an hour at 425 degrees F, or until their luscious, sweet juices start to ooze out into the foil. At work the following week, just pop one in the microwave for a quick warm-up. Theyre loaded with taste, so they dont need any extra toppings. If you want a little zest, swirl in a teaspoon or two of no-salt-added Dijon mustard or a quarter cup of plain nonfat Greek yogurt.

A big salad with a variety of lettuces, plus tomatoes, cucumber, and any other veggies you have in the fridge, including varieties youve never thought of adding to salads but actually taste delicious, like sliced fennel.

Get the Recipe

Ah, quinoa. This healthy, rich-tasting whole grain/seed has so many nutritional riches that it puts refined grains like white rice to shame. Tofu is the perfect sidekick because its both waistline-friendly (per bite, tofu tends to have about one-third the calories of meat and poultry) and heart-friendly (tofu has no artery-damaging saturated fat or cholesterol).

Directions: Rinse 1 cup of quinoa in cold water. In a medium saucepan, combine quinoa with 1 tablespoon curry powder and 1 teaspoon turmeric. Add 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer until the water is absorbedabout 15 minutes. Stir in 1 cup shredded carrots and 1 cup cubed firm tofu. Makes about 4 one-cup servings. Refrigerate remaining servings for an easy, healthy snack or meal later in the week.

Blend together until smooth and creamy your favorite fresh berries, silken tofu, Splenda (if needed), and a little vanilla extract.

Think oatmeal is boring? You havent tried Chef Anthonys sweet/ tangy Oatmeal Supreme, always a favorite among guests at Pritikin. Its a great meal for losing weight, and starting your day.

Get the Recipe

If desired, add a little nonfat milk or soymilk and 1 packet of sugar substitute (a good choice is Splenda).

Open up a big bag of baby carrots and dip them into your freshly made no-oil-added, no-salt-added hummus. Simply whip up in your food processor a can of no-salt-added chickpeas/garbanzo beans, fresh tomatoes, lemon juice, garlic, a jalapeno pepper (if you like your hummus hot and spicy), and fresh herbs like cilantro and dill. Add a little water, if necessary, until the desired consistency is achieved.

Get the Recipe

Butter beans are as delicious as they sound: big, meaty and filling, with a mild flavor that works well with bright, assertive flavors like lemon and scallions.

1 can no-salt-added butter beans cup chopped scallions (also known as green onions)Juice from half a lemonRed chili pepper flakes, to taste2 to 3 cups chopped fresh Romaine lettuce and/or baby arugula

In a medium mixing bowl, combine butter beans, scallions, lemon juice, and pepper flakes. Spoon over lettuce greens.

Sear, skin side up, a 4-ounce cut of salmon in a hot nonstick skillet and cook until well browned on the bottom, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn and cook till slightly translucent in center, 1 to 3 minutes. Transfer salmon to serving dish. To skillet add teaspoon grated orange peel, 3 ounces orange juice, and cup white wine. Boil until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Stir in 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves. Spoon sauce over salmon.

Cooking up soba (the Japanese word for buckwheat) noodles instead of white-flour noodles is a great way to cut calories. A cup of soba has just 113 calories; a cup of white pasta, about 200. Plus, soba noodles are full of fiber, protein, and B vitamins.

Combine in large bowl:2 large cucumbers, peeled, seeds removed, and sliced tablespoon paprikaPinch cayenne pepperPinch black peppercorns, freshly ground cup fresh lemon juiceLet cucumber mixture sit for a few minutes while you cook 8 ounces of soba noodles according to package directions. After cooking and draining sobas, toss in bowl with cucumber mixture and gently blend.

Pour a 6-ounce bag of pre-washed baby spinach in a hot wok sizzling with a small amount of water or white wine, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, and minced garlic. Stir spinach till wilted.

Smoothie made in blender with 1 cup nonfat plain yogurt, cup crushed ice, banana, and fresh or frozen berries.

Weight Loss Drugs Prescription and OTC by

Nov 12th, 2018
Comments Off on Weight Loss Drugs Prescription and OTC by

What are OTC diet pills?

Only one over-the-counter diet pill is approved for weight loss: a reduced-dose formulation of orlistat known as Alli. It works by preventing absorption of about a third of ingested fat. While side effects from Alli are slightly lower than with its prescription cousin (because of the lower dose): they remain unpleasant: oily stools and discharge and potential bowel accidents if too much fat is eaten at one sitting. Alli's manufacturer recommends keeping total fat consumption to about 30% of calories a day and spreading it out over three meals. The net weight loss effect with Alli: about 50% greater than diet and exercise alone.

What do I need to know about OTC diet supplements?

Many other over the counter diet supplements are promoted as helping with weight loss, but few have actually been proven to work. Worse, some of the ingredients used in OTC diet supplements may be dangerous. The Food and Drug Administration classifies herbal products as dietary supplements. This means that they are unregulated and can be marketed without the years of testing and regulatory review required for prescription (and nonprescription) drugs. Remember that supplements can have side effects, and you should check with your doctor first before taking any type of supplement, including OTC diet pills.

Here are some common ingredients seen in OTC diet supplements:

Green tea extract: cases of liver problems in people using concentrated green tea extracts have been reported.

Hydroxycitric acid: Derived from the fruit of a tree native to Southeast Asia. It generally appears to be safe, although one maker recalled its products after they were associated with liver damage. Other health problems reported included seizures, cardiovascular disorders, and serious muscle damage. These products contained many other ingredients, and it is unclear which ingredients or doses were associated with the liver problems.

Chromium: A mineral that people can get through diet, particularly meats, whole-grains, and some vegetables and fruits. It has been linked to side effects such as headaches and dizziness as well as more serious health problems at high doses.

Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA): Found naturally in meat and dairy products, it may cause stomach upset.

Hoodia: Derived from an African plant native to the Kalahari Desert. Hoodia products typically contain other additional ingredients. Its safety is not yet known.

Chitosan: Made from the starch found in shellfish.

Pyruvate: Produced by the body as a result of the breakdown of carbohydrate and protein from food and found naturally in foods such as cheese, wine, and red apples.

St. John's wort: Used mainly as an antidepressant, this herb can interact with numerous other drugs.

Aloe: Sometimes marketed as an "internal" cleanser, aloe causes a strong cathartic effect in the intestines. That can lead to mineral depletion or worse if users have pre-existing intestinal issues, such as ulcerative colitis.

Cascara: An effective laxative but ineffective weight loss agent, cascara interacts with other drugs and can throw off the body's mineral balance.

Glucomannan: Derived from a plant root, glucomannan has been banned in several countries because when exposed to liquid it swells and can result in a gastrointestinal obstruction.

Guarana: A natural stimulant, guarana can increase blood pressure.

Yerba mate: Often used in a tea, yerba mate ingestion can result in high blood pressure and overstimulation of the central nervous system. It may also be linked to esophageal cancer.

Guar gum: It is used in the food and pharmaceutical industries as a thickening agent, but taken alone, guar gum can swell on contact with liquid, potentially leading to an obstruction.

Ephedra (ma huang): Consumers should not be able to find OTC supplements containing this ingredient, because the FDA banned its sale in dietary supplements in 2004. Use of ephedra can cause high blood pressure and other cardiovascular problems.

Weight Loss? Easy! The Best Supplements to Keep Fit …

Nov 12th, 2018
Comments Off on Weight Loss? Easy! The Best Supplements to Keep Fit …

Do Fat Burners Work?

Slim is healthy. Moreover: slim is beautiful! This is the idea walking the globe for many years already. It is not always possible to achieve a good physical shape by exercise or diets, and this is why weight loss supplements exist.

You can't even imagine how many people all around the world are willing to change their appearance and they manage to do it!

True beauty is not always painful, as the famous proverb says. Sometimes the solution for a big problem is rather small, but, what's significant, effective.

Weight loss pills have been around nearly for ages, and still are an efficient way to improve your body. Picking those which would be good for you is not a thing when you know the factors defying your choice.

Weight loss pills are usually of two kinds. If we sort them generally, they would be:

As you can guess, natural supplements are based on originally natural components, including herbs, vitamins, green tea or caffeine, etc. Their main benefit is that it is rather hard to overuse it and cause any minor side effects. Anyways, you still better care about yourself and measure the dose carefully.

Synthetic ingredients mean that they have been cultivated unnaturally, but it is not that important considering that they do work. And, actually, sometimes you can get even a faster effect. Synthetic supplements also can be bought without doctor's prescription and bring really impressive results, not worse than the one proposed by doctors.

If you want to know what a particular fat burner consists of, you should read the list of ingredients in the labeling. It is a rule all the manufacturers must follow, so be confident that you can find all information needed on the packaging (or on their website).

Weight loss supplements can be influencing your body in different ways. Each of them is natural to your organism, but you have to judge yourself what you need more. Based on your health and it's special features you can pick the one which is perfect for you.

So, a remedy can do three different things:

Each approach is very personal, so you better examine your body before actually choosing.

Obviously, there is a line of things preferably be known before you start taking any remedies. Preparation is good in any serious mission, especially in the one regarding your health and appearance. So, here is a bunch of things worth doing before making a buying decision.

We hope that you have already got how vital it is to know things about the state of your health. Even things that could seem so tiny and insignificant may matter when it comes to the weight loss supplements.

Study the possible medical conditions, pay extra attention to your heart and liver, don't forget to check the blood pressure. All of that list can influence the choice more than you think.

We won't stop repeating it: try to estimate your financial abilities for such kind of expenses. It doesn't mean that you will need some enormous sums, but still planning your budget is another step to understanding.

Nutrition supplements also differ in their cost, like any other product, because the market today is pretty much overloaded with them. But it is a good thing because to a certain degree it's a guarantee that you will find the remedy that will face your demands.

It's a good idea to decrease your expectation before you start taking pills. Surprisingly, there is a high percentage of customers who imagine that they will be losing like 5 kilos a week. Hey, it's a remedy, not a magic wand!

If the effect is not instant, it doesn't mean that pills are useless, low-quality or don't suit you. Be patient, stick to the supplement taking routine and soon you will see the changes.

To make sure that you are making a right choice, use the Internet. Thank God, there are so many sources where you can read thorough and structured reviews. The more of them (both good and bad) you'll study the more you'll know about the product.

Unlike the adds, reviews bring a fair opinion about the product in use. Weight loss supplements aren't a thing that can be picked with your eyes closed, so the research is truly worth making.

Here we provide the massive of reviews with the explanations on each separate point.

Is the product as good as it is said in the advertisement?

What is special about it?

What effect does it have?

What does it consist of?

Is it worth money paid?

The research done has sorted out only the best fat burners presented here in the reviews so you can choose the product of high quality.

The 5 Steps to Losing Weight Fast – Lose Weight, Exercise …

Nov 12th, 2018
Comments Off on The 5 Steps to Losing Weight Fast – Lose Weight, Exercise …

Losing weight comes down to knowledge.

Thats it.

Once you understand how your body works then it becomes a lot easier to lose weight. The problem is many people go around trying a million different things that all conflict with each other and when they dont see the results that they want they think that it is impossible to lose weight.

Its quite possible to lose weight quickly if you take the right steps. What constitutes quick weight loss? How about 7lbs in 7 days? That sounds pretty awesome!

If you think that is impossible you are thinking about this all wrong.

First, you need to be positive!

Second, its definitely possible because one of the first things that you will learn to do is to stop sabotaging your body.

Now you mightve been told that you should lose weight slowly. The reason people tell you this is because they think that if you are losing weight quickly, you are doing so in a way that harms your body. Nothing in this post is harmful to you and nothing is voodoo.

You wont be told to take fat-burner bills that keep you up for the next 5 days.

Instead, I will share 5 steps with you to lose weight fast. These arent steps that you can skip either. Think of these as being written in stone.

If you decide not to follow them then that is on you.

Before we dive into the steps I want to take the time to answer this question. Losing weight fast has a number of benefits that you should consider.

Studies have shown that those who lose the most weight in the first 2-4 weeks of dieting have the greatest weight loss results in the following year.

So that means losing weight in the short term has a positive effect on the long-term results.

You know what one of the worst things is when you are trying to lose weight? Not actually losing weight!

This is why people that are trying to diet will try between 3 to 4 different diets a year. Nothing seems to be working so they keep on looking!

When you dont get results that can leave you frustrated and can kill your motivation completely. When you do get results you want to keep that momentum going.

Think about it. You are on a weight loss program which usually means you need to change your routine. Odds are you probably like your routine because you continue to do it so if you are going to change it, it better be for something that works.

If it doesnt work you quickly fall back into your old routine that isnt working for you either, but at least its something that you like.

Now imagine your new routine is starting to show results in 3 days. What do you think will happen then? You wake up a little more upbeat than usual. You have no problem ignoring that cupcake at work.


Because things are working for you.

When you see results it is easier to stay motivated and stick with the new routine. When you dont see results you ask yourself what is the point?

Lose weight faster, stay motivated longer.

We arent talking about the extreme things that boxers and UFC fighters do with their bodies, but have you ever heard of someone dying from trying to lose weight quickly in a responsible way?

It just doesnt happen!

However, how many people die from being overweight? You dont have to look it up because Ill tell you.


There are over 300,000 obesity related deaths a year just in the United States alone. Its an epidemic.

Thinking that losing weight quickly is a bad thing is a crazy thing to think. None of the methods that youll learn below will deprive your body of the nutrients that it needs so there is no fear in losing weight quickly.

The only fear should be of not starting at all.

Now, just because there are only 5 steps doesnt mean this will be a breeze. In theory, all of this should be easy, but thats how most people approach these things.

These steps arent miracles but they do work if you apply yourself.

Step 0 is understanding that this is all on you. If you want to make it happen you can make it happen.

Youve probably heard of this one before, but carbohydrates are the #1 reason why people become overweight.

If you want to learn more about carbs then check out our easy guide to carbs.

To get started on your quick weight loss plan you need to do a carb detox. You need to flush all of the bad carb stuff from your body. This has nothing to do with calories. This has everything to do with the twinkie that you made disappear in 3 seconds.

Doing a carb detox will reduce your calories and force your body to flush out any excess water weight. Dont be surprised if this results in a 5-8 pound drop in weight during the first week.

This is also why many people gain the weight back so quickly after they eat a plate of spaghetti.

Another plus to this, especially those prone to diabetes, is that it will help to reset your bodys insulin levels and become more sensitive to carbohydrates when you do bring them back into your diet.

What? Did you think you were done with carbs forever? Psh, nobody is done with carbs forever.

While doing this process you might also find that your body enters a state of ketosis. What follows is what is commonly known as keto flu. You might experience headaches and other flu-like symptoms for a couple of days. Crazy things happen when you begin to flush out the toxins from your body and restart it.

In my 20s I didnt really care about sleep. I would stay up late either working, gaming, or partying. I would catch up on sleep in the morning and then hit the routine again.

It wasnt good at all.

Many people that are trying to lose weight fail to do so because they dont get proper sleep. It makes sense because you dont really associate sleep with losing weight, but its a really big deal.

One of the worst things about getting a lack of sleep is that your willpower reserves start to drop. When your willpower is low thats when you begin to make poor food decisions. Its a slippery slope from thinking that one Oreo wont hurt to finally eating the whole pizza on your own.

Good sleep also ensures that your hormones are functioning properly. You never want to throw your hormones out of whack because it completely disrupts everything that you have going for you.

Okay, so youve cut out the carbs and have an awesome game plan for getting a good nights sleep, but you probably want to eat at some point.

So what do you eat?

When you are doing your detox you want to consume a ton of protein every chance you get. The reason why is because your body has to find a new energy source since you are depriving it of all of the sweet sugars you used to give it.

Protein becomes that new energy source.

Foods like organic chicken and eggs, beef, and salmon are a great source of protein. If you arent trying to chew food 16 hours a day then consider finding a good whey protein to add to the mix.

The fun doesnt stop there. You will want to cover these foods in high-quality fats. Not pig lard, but extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil.

If you think these fats are a bad thing you are sorely mistaken. They are a blessing. Not only do they add awesome flavor to your meals, but they also provide another energy source for your body.

Be sure to add some low-carb vegetables to the side as well. If you didnt know that vegetables are a source of carbs then make sure you read our guide to carbs.

This is a tricky step because common sense tells you that you should be exercising while dieting and at some point you should. It shouldnt happen when you are going through your detox though because your body is adjusting and its pretty hard to convince your mind to eat differently and start a new workout routine.

Because of the carb detox you will already be losing weight so you want to keep that momentum going. Working out requires your body to burn through its energy sources and because your body is still adjusting that usually means that if you work out now that donut looks much more appealing later.

However, once youre done with your detox you can start to insert some exercise because you will start to eat some carbs again. The reason why you are taking this approach is because you want to prevent something called the down-regulation of metabolism.

What is that? Excellent question!

It is when your bodys metabolism rate slows down because you are eating less food. You want to include exercise in your regimen so it doesnt continue to slow down and all it takes is exercising 3x a week.

The best type of exercise you can do for this in our opinion is circuit training.

Knowing how to read food labels is important, but you never want to end up just reducing your food to numbers. You want your body to enjoy everything that you consume and you want to feel good about it later.

The problem with just reducing food to just numbers is that you can find sneaky ways to get a box of chocolate chip cookies into your daily diet if you skimp out on other things.

But how are those cookies going to make you feel? While they may help you reach your daily carb limit are they providing any other nutrients that your body needs?

A huge mindset win for you will occur when you can stop thinking about just the taste of a food and also start thinking about how it is going to make you feel later.

Almost everything good that I like to eat that is bad for me results in me feeling even worse later.

If you follow these steps and nothing is happening then there is a good chance you are consuming too much food. Low-carb vegetables are great to eat but if you are consuming 50lbs worth a day you shouldnt expect to lose any weight.

If you arent seeing any results then it becomes time to count your calories. Its pretty difficult to eat more than your daily calorie count, but its not impossible.

HCG Diet Plan: Get to Know the *REAL* Hcg Diet – HCG Diet …

Nov 6th, 2018
Comments Off on HCG Diet Plan: Get to Know the *REAL* Hcg Diet – HCG Diet …

The Hcg Diet Plan is a doctor-supervised, medical weight loss program that combines hormone therapy with whole food eating. Menu options are heavy in vegetables and lean proteins, as well as fruit options and limited grains. Allowed calories on the protocol, range from 500 to 1600 calories, depending on the specific protocol followed.

The very specific food list can teach healthy eating, portion control and establish healthy relationships with food. While the protocol was initially outlined by Dr. Simeons, modern day variations have become increasingly popular. This guide, focuses on the original protocol, with modern adaptations noted by the editor.

Dr. Albert Simeons was a world-renowned endocrinologist recognized for his pioneering work in tropical diseases. He was awarded the Red Cross Order of Merit for his advancement in the research and treatment of Malaria and honored for a number of research-breakthroughs. While working with severely malnourished women in India, Dr. Simeons discovered a link between the Hcg hormone, and its ability to utilize stored fat to nourish and deliver healthy children. After years of research, he was able to develop a protocol that utilized this effect of Hcg, to treat obesity, and published the groundbreaking manuscript, Pounds and Inches.

Here are a few basics for those who are ready to jump right in and start with the plan immediately. With these simple articles, you can easily get started today. Take note however, that anyone new to the plan, should read through this guide thoroughly, and NEVER proceed with the protocol without consulting a physician (FDA approved telemedicine Hcg programs are listed below.)

The Hcg Diet is a medical weight loss plan, and should ONLY be prescribed and overseen by a licensed medical doctor. While it can be challenging to find a local physician that specializes in Hcg hormone therapy, there are a few options available online, through FDA-approved telemedicine companies in the USA. These sources provide complete prescription Hcg kits for injections, drops and tablets/pills/pellets, and provide expert guidance throughout the duration of treatment.

Preparing for the plan, is absolutely essential and should not be skipped. Much like building a house, you want a solid foundation and to be prepared for the steps and challenges that come along with the protocol. In fact, most challenges can be avoided completely by reading the following articles before getting started.

These tools can be beneficial for those starting out on the plan for the first time. They are all free to download. We will be adding more here, so please check back often.

The Hcg protocol consists of 3 phases, with a newer 4th phase that has been added to the original protocol, being coined as P4, longterm maintenance. Each phase is extremely important and should not be skipped. The Loading Phase (P1) is 2 (in some cases, 3 days,) while Phase 2, the weight loss phase, can vary in length depending on your protocols specifics. For example, one Hcg sources protocol can differ from another such as 26 days or 29 days. Phase 3, the Transition Phase, lasts 3 weeks and is an expansion of increased calories and foods that do not include any sugars or starches. The 4th phase refers to life after the diets first 3 phases and includes a lifestyle of healthy choices learned while on the protocol. This includes exercise, portion control, clean eating and healthy living in general.

The HCG Diet Protocol consists of separate phases. Together, they are referred to as a round. Dieters typically lose 18 to 25 lbs per round (approximately 1 month.) If more weight is needed to be lost, there is a 3 week break after the final phase, and thenanother round is started. Rinse and repeat until goal weight is reached.

HCG Diet protocols include the following4 phases. Note on protocol variations: Some protocols actually include 3 and 4 as the same Maintenance phase and have only 3 phases total. Other protocols, including Dr. Simeons Original protocol, do not include phase 1, loading phase. This can be a personal preference, however we will say that the following phase example, has shown great results from our readers, and has certainly appeared to be the most successful.

Phase 1 is the loading phase. Also known as the preparation phase. This phase is not on all HCG Diet protocols but it is on most and is very popular. During this two day phase, the dieter eats as much healthy fats as possible in preparation for starting the next phase. They are also welcome to eat as many cheat foods as they would like, with the intention of satisfying cravings prior to beginning the next phase where these foods will not be allowed. Read more

Phase 2 of the HCG Diet is the weight loss phase. This begins on day 3 of taking HCG where the dieter adheres toa specifiedcalorie intake and carefully selected food list. For most dieters, this is the most challenging phase of the plan because there is very little room for error. Read more:

Phase 3 of the HCG Dietis at the end of HCG is discontinued and the same foods from phase 2 are still eaten, but increased slowly. In this stage, this is areintroduction period where calories and foods are slowly adjusted to maintain weight loss. Read more:

Phase 4 of the HCG Diet is the phase of continuing weight maintenance for life-long health and fitness.This is an essential part of the HCG diet and it actually begins during Phase 2. This is where you will begin to build the skills necessary for lifetime weight maintenance and healthy living. For example; reading labels as a habit (this will become 2nd nature and shouldntstop once you reach your weight loss goals. Also, portion control and learning to listen to your body. Read more about these skills and implement them starting NOW:

The absolute best (&Free!) HCG Diet tips for reaching your weight loss goals safe and fast!

Hcg weight loss foods and recipes are the backbone of the Hcg weight loss program. Not only do the allowed foods help you to lose weight, but they also help get our body into a healthy state.

It is important to understand that while the Hcg hormone does NOT make you lose weight, it does changehowyour body loses weight, and creates a reaction in your body that allows for the rapid weight loss. It is the carefully selected Hcg Diet food list that is responsible for your weight loss; the Hcg just allows your body to continue to burn fat when it would normally go into starvation mode under the calorie restricted diet.

This is good news! This means the Hcg weight loss plan can be surprisingly versatile with the right recipes, and can work with any number of menus, foods sensitivities. The allowed foods are clear of processed and prepared foods and carefully measured for portion control. Instead of processed foods, the food list focuses on clean eating, and consists mostly of vegetables and healthy portions of lean protein, along with some, but limited, carbohydrates. To be clear, this is NOT a ketosis diet when done correctly, and in fact the amount of vegetables and fruit permitted, do not allow the body to go into ketosis. Compared to ketosis diets, this particular approach has been shown to average much higher weight loss rates that range from .5 to 1.5 pounds per day.

In a nutshell: The Hcg Diet allowed foods and guidelines focus on portion control, increased vegetables and proteins, and a food list that is comprised of clean, unprocessed foods.

The Original HCG Diet is known for its restrictive and unforgiving500 calorie VLCD (very low calorie diet.) Some versions of the diet have evolved to allowfor an HCG Diet expanded food list.

Learn what to eat on the HCG Diet and how to eat: Portion sizes, HCG Diet-friendly recipes for all phases, foods lists, plus HCG Diet cooking and shopping tips.

Learning to cook on the diet, can be a struggle for some patients, however, it is also an excellent opportunity to learn how to cook new foods that are clean, nutritious and healthy. Since the protocol does not allow foods that are processed or prepared (bye bye alcohol, fast food and frozen dinners) this can be an excellent path to learning how to prepare meals that will nourish your body, and make long term weight maintenance easy.

Take a look at our recipe section, and discover amazing Hcg Diet Recipes that include Southwestern chicken, strawberry cupcakes, garlic baked shrimp, mouth-watering grilled asparagus, and chai beverages. While it may be intimidating to look at the allowed foods list and feel limited, it wont take long before you realize just how versatile and delishous it can be.

We have also included a list of our best recipe and cooking articles that cover everything from how to cook on the protocol, spices to use to increase your metabolism, tips for dining out and tips for eating during special occasions.

Sample menus and menu tips for the HCG Diet.

Hcg Diet Info has put together a complete guide to buying Hcg Kits and Programs online: How to Buy Hcg injections online (Drops and Pellets too.)

In the last few years, the FDA-approved telemedicine industry has grown and allowed doctors to prescribe and care for individuals wanting to follow the protocol. You can now safely buy Hcg kits online, that come with a complete program overseen by a medical doctor and Hcg weight loss experts and nutritionists. This has grown to be one of the most beneficial medical weight loss programs in the world now.

Tips for buying Hcg and Hcg weight loss programs: One of the first things to take into consideration when buying Hcg, is which form of Hcg you feel comfortable with, how soon you would like to start your diet, and the level of support you will need. The latter tends to be the biggest difference between various Hcg sources with some companies offering minimal support (better for veterans and pros that want to buy a bare bones Hcg kit to save money) and other companies offering extensive diet support, while yet another offering custom dosage and protocol support, and complete medical doctor hand-holding, along with a year of nutritionist services (even after the diet is completed.) These may seem like small differences but they can add up to be an extreme value for your money, as well as offer peace of mind.

The sources recommended in Hcg Diet Infooffer each of the acceptable choices that can be used with the original Hcg weight loss protocol: Hcg injections, Hcg Diet Drops (Prescription or Homeopathic), and Prescription Hcg Pellets. The Hcg Buy Guide also offers answers to dozens of frequently asked questions about buying Hcg Kits and Hcg weight loss programs online. Please note: Over the counter hormone free diet drops should NOT be used with the original protocol and can be dangerous if combined with the VLCD (very low calorie menu.) These over the counter drops have been addressed and dismissed largely by the FDA for good reason- they are NOT safe with the original protocol. Read: How to know if my Hcg Drops are Real, for more information.

Exercise is an important part of healthy living, even without wanting to lose weight. While the original protocol insistedexercise was not necessary, most of the evolvedprotocols include and encourage a consistent exercise routine simply because it is a healthy lifestyle option and the benefits are many.

For those currently active, in most cases, it is ok to continue as usual, although some may find it useful to lighten their workout for the first week of being on the protocol. For those who are new to working out, a low impact daily workout of at least 20 minutes a day is recommended to start. Recommended activities include: walking (brisk), swimming, yoga (no hot yoga practices yet), and pilates. Level of activity is extremely light the first week of phase 2 on the HCG Diet and increases as the individual feels ready. It is highly advised that the chosen workouts are something enjoyable, and not something you dread doing every day.

The HCG Diet can be complicated and so specific,you are almost certain to experiencechallenges along the way. While it might not seem welcome, It is a large part of the learning process for long term managementsuccess. There will be temptation to stray from your planned diet, and there may even be times when you stray by accident. Yes, it can happen: Aunt Sally forgot to tell you she adds sugar toher famous holiday vinaigrettedressing, or the restaurant neglected to tell you theres bread crumb mixed right into the hamburger patty which you so carefully ordered without a bun. Of course theres the good old oops, I assumed that hot sauce was just hot sauce and didnt realize it had 9 grams of sugar. Theres your first lesson; always double-check ingredientsand dont eat it unless youre sure. A better lesson if you cant see all ingredients, dont eat it! The less processed foods you eat, the better. See, its all part of the big picture and building the skillsto be fit and thin for life.

Dr. Simeons manuscript, Pounds and Inches is the original book that outlines every detail of the Hcg weight loss protocol. Dr. Simeons has been very specific in his words, outlining all aspects of the diet. This includes the original 500 calorie menu, the effects of hCG on the body, hCG dosage, how to inject hCG, how to handle stalls and plateaus, and a solid overview transitioning from phase 2 to phase 3, which many dieters can find challenging.

Regardless of which version of the protocol the patient is following, it can still be helpful to read the manuscript. Not only does this allow the Hcg dieter to understand the intention of the diet, but it can also help establish a solid foundation of preparation, and help avoid challenges by answering many of the most frequently asked questions.

Our editor has taken the time to separate the original manuscript by chapter, making it easy to navigate and locate individual topics. We also offer an MP3 audio version (audiobook) of the Pounds and Inches manuscript, as well as a PDF version. These will be automatically sent to those who sign up for our newsletter but they can also be found here:

HCG Diet Miami- Weight Loss Experts

Nov 6th, 2018
Comments Off on HCG Diet Miami- Weight Loss Experts

What Exactly Is HCG?HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin and is a glycoprotein composed of 244 amino acids.

The use of the HCG Diet for weight loss was pioneered by British endocrinologist A.T.W. Simeons while studying pregnant women on an extremely low-calorie diet in India in the 1950s. He thought it was a medical oxymoron that pregnant women in a 3rd world country would walk everywhere, work, and eat just a handful of calories and still produce normal sized babies. His medical logic determined that these babies should be malnourished. This led him to discover that when a woman is pregnant, her body produces HCG. Also while in India, Dr. Simeons treated fat boys with pituitary problems with low doses of HCG. He observed both lost fat rather than lean muscle tissue.

HCG mobilizes the adipose tissue (abnormal fat). There are 3 types of fat.

A pregnant womans body will produce over 1 million IU (International Units) of HCG to mobilize the abnormal fat full of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients to nourish the unborn fetus. Dr. Simeons wrote, In pregnancy, it would be most undesirable if the fetus were offered ample food only when there is a high influx from the intestinal tract. Ideal nutritional conditions for the fetus can only be achieved when the mothers blood is continually saturated with food, regardless of whether she eats or not, as otherwise, a period of starvation might hamper the steady growth of the embryo.

The use of HCG in conjunction with VLCD (Very Low-Calorie Diet) produces weight loss, but more specifically, fat loss. The HCG Diet will reshape your body. Your body needs reserve and structural fat but does not need abnormal fat to survive. By using HCG, your body releases the unlocked calories and nutrients stored in your abnormal fat. Therefore, HCG used with VLCD will produce weight loss that is primarily comprised of bad fat.

Dr. Simeons also wrote, When a male patient hears that he is about to be put into a condition which in some respects resembles pregnancy, he is usually shocked and horrified. The physician must therefore carefully explain that this does not mean that he will be feminized and that HCG in no way interferes with his sex. He must be made to understand that in the interest of the propagation of the species nature provides for a perfect functioning of the regulatory headquarters in the diencephalon during pregnancy and that we are merely using this natural safeguard as a means of correcting the diencephalic disorder which is responsible for his overweight.

Why cant I just do the low-calorie diet without HCG?

If just reducing calories is the solution to being overweight and obesity, then why hasnt it worked in the past? Lets face it; if youre investigating the HCG Diet then Id say youve tried other diets in the past without the desired results. There are 2 basic reasons one should avoid just reducing calories to lose weight.

These 2 basic reasons are why you have not been successful by reducing calories in the past. A combination of HCG and VLCD can mobilize and reduce your abnormal fat.

The HCG assisted diet is preferred over most other weight loss methods in existence today! The original HCG diet was developed over 60 years ago. It consisted of an extremely low 500 calorie per day diet. However, eating so few calories per day is dangerous and could lead to health problems. We have learned a great deal about these weight loss injections and how they relate to weight gain and weight loss since the original HCG protocols by Dr. Simeons in the 1950s. The HCG assisted diet is customized for each individual client. The modernized protocols call for a minimum of 800 calories and some folks may necessitate more. We assess that during the consultation procedure.
