What Does It Mean When You Are Always Hungry? Here Is The Best Answer.

Does it Mean when you Are Always Hungry

Have you ever thought that the lack of water is a major reason for being constantly hungry? It might sound odd at first, but let me explain why water is part of the reason that many people feel hungry all the time.

Our body is made up of millions of cells that all have to complete thousands of tasks every day so your body can stay healthy and function properly. However, these cells all need to be replenished with nutrients and energy all the time, because they can “burn out”. If they do not get what they need for a certain time, you can expect these cells to go on “stress mode” because they have to make so much effort to use few resources efficiently. [...]  Read more...

Can I Lose Weight By Walking On Treadmill?

Lose weight by walking on treadmill

When I made up my mind to lose weight, at first I did not consider walking as part of my weight loss plan. And I had my reasons for it.

First of all, fitness is not my favorite thing to do at all; in fact, I strongly dislike doing any kind of exercise for the sake of losing weight, and even for the sake of being healthy. It might sound scary to you that I would not even do exercise for my health.

Please get me right: I exercise here and there and think one should do it because it is undeniably healthy. Even though I know I should be doing exercise, I just never get into the routine, although I have tried it multiple times. I just try to be physically active here and there. [...]  Read more...

Can you lose weight by walking

When people are leading a passive lifestyle, sitting a lot on the computer in their offices, they tend to get overweight over time and everybody tells them that they need to get physically active or start to walk in order to shed those accumulated pounds.

However, these people then ask: How can you lose weight by walking? How should I do it, or where can I do it, or how often should I walk, and how long does it take to see results?

I remember vividly the times my dad told me that I needed to start moving because I would be severely obese in no time.  Good thing, it did not happen, neither of both.  Not until later did I start to workout. [...]  Read more...

Learn About One Of The Best Natural Ways To Lose Weight fast

Why People Do Not Lose Weight? And Why Am I Not Losing Weight?

Why People Do Not Lose Weight

Recently, I have learned new things about my personal weight loss, since I am trying to lose weight myself. In one of my previous posts, I stated that I had lost 21 pounds. On September 25th, 2017, I started Bright Line Eating, a program developed by Susan Peirce Thompson, in which you follow 4 bright lines, no sugar, no flour, measure your food, and eat 3 or 5 meals a day.

For the first month, everything did go very well: I lost the 21 pounds.  After that, things slowed down for a while, even though I followed the program (not 100% strict).  After another month, I had lost only 4 more pounds, which was a little disappointing to me. [...]  Read more...

In my previous post, I was talking about things I had learned when I was with the nutritionist and he was the one that gave me some answers to the question if it was really important to eat fruits and vegetables. The question is also one that I have been asked over and over from my students! Indeed, I have asked myself very often. Let’s look a little closer at what the benefits of fruits and vegetables are.

When I grew up, whenever I asked that question, the only reply I would get was: You eat it because it is healthy.
But that was not enough for me, besides we didn’t eat it very often. In school, I learned about healthy food, but it was in the form of, this is what you should eat because it is healthy. There was never a discussion on why it was healthy or what the benefits they brought. [...]  Read more...

Making the Right Food Choices – Does it Really Matter?

In one of my previous posts, I said I would address what I learned during the time I was with my nutritionist. Maybe you question the relevance of that, but I never thought things could change so dramatically for me and my family as we learned that making the right food choices really do matter.

Not only did we learn about making wiser food choices, we also learned many interesting facts about food in our body and that our health is determined mostly by what we eat.

Changing your lifestyle is not just about tweaking some things here and there for a short time and expect changes.  If you have cardiovascular disease, you are looking for a change in the long run.  2 months of healthy eating or 2 months of exercise will not do the trick. [...]  Read more...
