By Sunny Sun

trampolineWeight loss is a big issue in today’s world. Mostly women face it in late 30’s and 40’s. Over weight can cause you severe harm as it can lead you to harmful diseases which harm you in the way that they make your life tasteless and joyless. Diseases like cholesterol, heart problems, back problems and blood pressure are majorly caused due to having more weight that is beyond normal weight according to your age and height.

Do you know you can really control weight without cutting of your favorite food?

Yes you can really do it without joining any gym or fitness classes and giving extra time to your physical activities. Are you curious about how can this miracle happen?

Here is the answer:

You can lose weight dramatically by rebounding and bouncing on a trampoline. Yes of course, you need no extra time for it as you can manage to have trampoline at your place and use it anytime you are free.

Today I am going to tell you the top 7 reasons why rebounding helps you losing weight.

Check below:

1) Improve digestion which has a great part in losing weight
Digestive system is responsible for the digestion of food. If food gets digested fast it helps you to keep your body in shape as much as possible. Digestive problems are likely to be found when obesity and over weight problems are reported.

Rebounding on a trampoline improves your digestion and helps you lose weight. If you are not facing any digestion issues then rebounding would help you prevent such issues in future.

2) Burn extra fats inside your body
Extra fats present in your body are a big reason behind your obesity. Up and down motion helps your body heat up and burns all the fats inside. This would make you feel light and relaxing.

Mostly we have seen double chin people, some have heavy body sagging. All these issues arise due to extra fats being stored in your body. Rebounding exercises help you burn these unnecessary fats and help you lose weight.

3) Release toxins from your body
You may be wondering how we can lose weight by releasing toxins. Right?

The reason behind the fact is that toxins cause certain harmful glands inside your body which do not let fats inside melt easily. Heating up your body and doing several exercises are found to give no benefit to some people. Are you too one of them?

The reason behind your worries is toxins present in your body. Rebounding helps releasing toxins and lets extra layer of fats pass out from your body.

4) Cause your body to sweat which is important for weight loss
Sweating causing methods are found beneficial in losing weight. Some people take steam sessions for losing weight. However, rebounding can easily make you sweat in no time and causes you lose weight dramatically.

5) Provide you an edge over jogging and running
Mostly people go for running and jogging for weight loss and it is really helpful. But if you have no time for it then what can you do?

Rebounding on a trampoline is the best solution for busy scheduled people. You can do rebounding exercises on any time of day at your home without making much time for it. Also rebounding on a trampoline is found to show more beneficial results than jogging running simply.

6) Up down motion heats up your body which helps clearing fats inside
Up and down motion caused by rebounding helps your body to heat up and this helps melting away extra fats residing inside your body. This may make you sweat and as a result, your body releases away extra layers of fats. That’s why trampoline exercises are found to be beneficial over all other ways of losing weight.

7) Increase metabolic rate which lowers likelihood of obesity
Metabolism is a number of activities taking place in your body at a time. Some people have a slow metabolic rate while gymnasts and sport persons have a high metabolic rate as they are physically fit and carry out various physical exercises daily.

Metabolism when increased increases the activities in your body which produce heat. This heating effect of metabolic activities help giving off all fats from your body along with dangerous glands and toxins being produced.

Conclusion
We come to conclude most important reasons that how we can lose weight while rebounding on a trampoline and how rebounding is different from other popular physical exercises like jogging and jumping. Rebounding on a trampoline is far much better than making up other physical exercises.

Protective Beliefs – Could They Be Holding You Back From Losing Weight? – Part 2

By Dr George Blair-West

Continued from part 1 of this article…..

weightlossballtextYou see, the beliefs that hold you back don’t do so just to frustrate you. They are there for an important reason. Using special techniques to access my patients’ unconscious worlds I have come to appreciate just how strong this glass ceiling can be.

So, what’s going on? Why would our mind not want us to achieve our slimmer, healthier self? There are different reasons, but the underlying theme is often protection, staying safe. To understand this I need to give you a quick lesson on your unconscious mind. Your unconscious mind’s job, first and foremost, is to keep you safe. Unfortunately, it only operates in the here and now. Not only does an extra slice of cake not kill us in the here and now, it makes us feel good. Which introduces the second job of your unconscious – once you’re safe, seek and enjoy pleasure.

Your unconscious mind is just the human equivalent of the survival instinct in all animals – it’s not at all sophisticated. As you can see, your unconscious mind has a lot to answer for. Indeed, if it did look to the long term, and could see that extra weight meant poorer health (i.e. it is not keeping us safe at all) we would not have an obesity problem of the magnitude we have.

FAILURE FEAR STOPS US FROM STARTING – SUCCESS STRESS STOPS US FROM FINISHING

Protective beliefs mean my patients come up with insights about what is holding them back like, ‘If I lose weight and become more attractive, I’m not sure how I will cope with the attention.’ Other responses relate to achieving e.g. ‘If I can do this, what else could I do? How will my life change? My mind wants me to stay safe in my box.’ Remember the first and foremost job of your unconscious? Keeping you safe.

While the fear and humiliation of failing (‘failure fear’) often prevents us from starting, it’s fear of success (‘success stress’) that often stops us from finishing. Success stress is built on our protective beliefs.

Do not risk your sanity, your valuable time or your money embarking on a weight loss program without first attending to the Mindset you are going to bring to the task. Not only is Mindset a critical part of success, the other big ‘M’ – Motivation – is built on top of your Mindset, so take the time to get it sorted before you embark on your weight loss journey.

Protective Beliefs – Could They Be Holding You Back From Losing Weight? – Part 1

By Dr George Blair-West

theroadupA path without obstacles is typically not worth the journey. The weight loss journey comes with obstacles aplenty. We have obstacles from friends and family, like wanting to ‘save us’ from the deprivations of a diet by tempting us with our favourite chocolates, cheese or cake.

As a medico and psychiatrist working in this field, the obstacles that I am most fascinated by, however, are the ones that we inflict on ourselves. I have spent more than a decade now exploring the minds of my patients looking to understand the myriad of ways in which we can all sabotage our weight loss without anyone’s help whatsoever! There are no forces more powerful in holding us back, than the ‘protective beliefs’ that populate our Mindset.

SO WHAT IS YOUR MINDSET ANYWAY?

I define Mindset here as the attitudes and their underlying beliefs that we bring to (in this instance) the weight loss challenge. When you find yourself faced with a challenge – from riding a bike to going on the cabbage soup diet – the thoughts like ‘I can do that’ or ‘I can’t do that’ are simple examples of your Mindset at play. To paraphrase Henry Ford who knew the power of your Mindset more than most: Think you can, think you can’t – either way you’ll be right.

It’s like someone rocking up on the day of the marathon without having done any running practice over the weeks beforehand, to prepare for the big day. Time and time again, I see people launch into a new weight loss program without paying any attention to the Mindset they are bringing to the challenge. I believe this is a big factor behind the 80% failure rate that plagues the management of obesity.

BEWARE THE BELIEFS THAT PROTECT YOU!

Of the beliefs that make up your Mindset, perhaps the most powerful are those that create your own personal glass ceiling. In Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP – think Tony Robbins) they are called ‘limiting beliefs’, but this label does not convey the fullness of their power. I call them ‘protective beliefs’ because this helps us to understand their original purpose and why we need to both respect and manage them.

Losing Weight Without Dieting – Yes It Is Possible!

By Bonnie R. Giller

mirrorYou’re standing in front of the mirror having changed your clothes three times already this morning. Nothing seems to fit right. You are discouraged and start with the negative self-talk you are all too familiar with. “Why can’t I just stick to my diet”, you say to yourself. “I am such a failure; I will never succeed at weight loss”. “Tomorrow I will start my diet again”.

Does this sound familiar to you? If you have been battling your weight for some time, then likely you have been on countless diets that have not worked long term and you have gotten very good at berating yourself for your failures. The commercials all sound so promising! The radio ads promise fat burning powers of the miracle pills you just bought at the health food store. Why aren’t you able to lose weight?

The answer likely lies in the fact that you are dieting. You see, nobody lives on a diet. One goes on a diet but eventually goes off the diet. Forty to fifty percent of American women are trying to lose weight and are on a diet at any point in time. Half of pre-teen and teenage girls are on diets. However, 95% of all dieters regain their lost weight and more within 1 to 5 years. These are very alarming statistics because dieting clearly doesn’t work and repeated “yo-yo” dieting has been shown to have negative health effects, including an increased risk of heart disease and long-lasting effects on the metabolism.

Dieting makes you preoccupied with food; what you ate yesterday, today and what you will eat later or tomorrow.

Dieting makes you preoccupied with food; what you ate yesterday, today and what you will eat later or tomorrow. Dieting makes food the enemy and causes guilty feelings when you don’t eat diet-type foods. When you go on a diet, you are in essence putting your body into a short-term starvation state. When given the first opportunity to really eat what you desire, you will often experience a feeling of such intensity that any initial thoughts of wanting to be thin fly out the window. You feel out of control, guilty, and view yourself as having no willpower. However, this type of eating in response to semi-starvation is actually normal. It has nothing to do with willpower! When you are underfed, you will obsess about food. Period!

The best solution to achieving weight loss and a body you love is to embrace an intuitive eating approach to food. Intuitive eating is eating based on your physiological hunger and satiety cues not based on situations or emotional cues. So, that means eating when you are hungry and stopping when you are satisfied or comfortably full. I recognize that for the chronic yo-yo dieter, this is not necessarily easy. It requires you to explore how you got to where you are today in your eating habits and understand deeply what it means to become an intuitive eater. During this process, it is important for you to begin to get rid of the diet mentality that you have, and to truly believe that you will never diet again. If you continue to think there is “just one more diet, this time I’ll be good”, then you won’t be able to move forward to becoming an intuitive eater. You will continue to have foods that are “good” and “bad” and you will continue to think of yourself as being “on” or “off”.

To help you get started on the path of intuitive eating, commit to the following 3 steps:

1. Throw out all the diet books and pre-printed menus from magazines that you have tried over the years. Make a commitment to yourself that you will no longer be tempted by new diets that come out because you are committed to learning to listen to your body.

scale2. Get rid of the bathroom scale. Do you weigh yourself every morning or even several times per day? Does the number on the scale influence your mood for the day? Most likely it does, even if you don’t consciously realize it. Your weight fluctuates day to day and is a measure of more than just fat. It includes your bones, organs, muscle and substances such as water, food and waste that pass through your system. Begin to measure your success by other factors other than the scale such as improved blood work, blood pressure, mood, energy level and overall satisfaction with your progress toward becoming an intuitive eater.

3. Seek out caring support to help you on your journey. Becoming an intuitive eater is a process and the amount of time it takes will depend on how long you have been dieting, how strong your diet mentality is, how long you have been using food to cope with your emotions and how willing you are to trust yourself. It is very important for you to surround yourself with like-minded people who can provide positive feedback and support.

Losing weight and keeping it off does not have to seem impossible. You were born with the natural instinct to eat when hungry and stop when full. Chances are you lost this ability due to all the diets you tried and the media exposure to quick-fixes. You can reclaim what you were born with and achieve guilt-free eating, a body you love and a life free of dieting. Intuitive eating is the answer you have been looking for.

Losing Weight Starts In Your Head

By Steve Siebold

obesebikeObesity is an epidemic that is out of control. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than one-third of U.S. adults are obese. Ironically, with so many diets and exercise programs on the market today, the problem seems to be getting worse. Mental toughness is what’s missing from the weight loss equation.

Mental toughness as it relates to losing weight and getting healthy is about changing the way you think about food, exercise and other lifestyle choices. The first step is to realize that unless you have a true medical condition that causes weight gain, your weight is your responsibility. Being overweight or obese is not the fault of the food manufacturers, restaurants, portion sizes, emotional issues or anything else. Mental toughness for losing weight means growing up emotionally and making the decision to beat obesity once and for all.

Here are some ways to incorporate mental toughness into your diet and exercise routine. If it sounds tough, remember that getting the results you want isn’t always easy.

• 99% compliance on a diet is failure! Sounds harsh, but if you’re going to get fit, it’s all or nothing. You wouldn’t cheat on your significant other just one time, so why would you cheat on something as important as your diet?

• If you’re a yo-yo dieter, you know by now that diets are filled with challenges such as cravings. Expect these challenges and know that they are going to happen, but have a plan in place to push forward and stay compliant.

• Stop looking at dieting as drudgery that can only be tolerated for short periods of time. Instead, look at dieting as a strategy for a lifetime to keep you healthy, looking good and feeling great.

• Don’t look at exercise as an added burden in life. If something is important enough, you make it a mandatory habit. It’s why you see the same fit people at the gym at the same time each day. It doesn’t matter how busy you are at work, how many kids you have or anything else, exercise must be a priority.

Self-Talk

overweightbusmanThe greatest mental toughness tool of all is developing a world-class positive self-talk. This will change your core beliefs about diet and exercise, and make it all come together.

For example:

Negative thought: Dieting equals pain.
Positive thought: Dieting equals pleasure through feeling successful, more energetic and looking great.

Negative thought: Diets don’t work.
Positive thought: People don’t work. My diet works perfectly every time as long as I stick to it.

Negative thought: Dieting means denying myself pleasure.
Positive thought: Dieting creates the pleasure of being fit, feeling great and looking my best.

Negative thought: Dieting is too much work.
Positive thought: Being fat is too much work. If I want this bad enough I have to make it happen.

If you want to get fit once and for all, develop the mental toughness to make it happen. It all starts with your thinking.

Is Diet Or Exercise Better For Losing The Pounds?

Share Button

bananaFrom Your Health Journal…..”A informative article recently from one of my favorite web sites to promote, Medical Xpress – the article is called Is dieting or exercise better for losing weight? Exercise may not lead to as much calorie burn as many of us imagine, as many people tend to eat more when they exercise. In my encounters with others who frequently tell me how they are exercising, but not losing weight, my first comment to them is to journal for one week how much they eat each day. What I usually find, they have increased their calorie count, as well as cheated a little. When I say cheated, I mean they feel since they exercise, they now have a ‘free ticket’ to eat more junk or snacks. To successfully lose weight, one must combine a strong and consistent daily exercise program along with a healthy diet, which includes whole grains, fruits and vegetables, lean proteins and healthy fats – more of the UNsaturated kind. With obesity on the rise all over the world, and many people, including children showing risk factors for heart disease, cancer, weak joints, low self esteem, type 2 diabetes, and other health issues, it is important we learn to take care of ourselves. More than one-third of U.S. adults (35.7%) are obese, and many experts are worried about how this will effect healthcare in the future. According to the CDC, in 2008, medical costs associated with obesity were estimated at $147 billion; the medical costs for people who are obese were $1,429 higher than those of normal weight. I encourage you all to visit one of my favorite sites, Medical Xpress (link provided below) to read the complete article.”

From the article…..

Are you diligently exercising but seeing no results around your midsection? It’s not just you.

Two new studies may explain why many people who begin exercise programs often lose little to no weight in the long run.

In the first study, published in the online science journal PLoS One, researchers compared the daily energy expenditures of Westerners and the Hadza, a population of hunter-gatherers living in northern Tanzania. Many believe modern Westerners burn fewer calories than in the past because their lives have become more sedentary. The Hadza, who are generally very lean, hunt and forage for food without modern tools such as vehicles or guns. Men walk about seven miles each day, while women walk about half that.

What was surprising was that although the Hadza seem to be more active, the researchers found little difference in calories burned between the Hadza and their Western counterparts.

The second study, published in Obesity Reviews, analyzed the effect of exercise interventions on body composition. The researchers found that—contrary to popular belief—when people exercise but keep their energy intake constant, their resting metabolic rate (i.e., metabolism) actually goes down. Exercisers who ate more calories than they usually do did burn more fat than predicted, but some overcompensated and negated the effects of their hard work.

These studies suggest two things: exercise programs may not lead to as much calorie burn as you would think, and many people start eating more when they exercise, and they may eat too much.

A ‘Losing’ Battle On Childhood Obesity?

Share Button

From Your Health Journal…..”I visit the Metro West Daily News on a regular basis, as it is one of those local papers that frequently has some great health stories. Please visit their web site (link below) to view many great articles, including the one being reviewed here today. Yesterday, I discussed how childhood obesity is declining in some demographics, but not a reason to jump for joy yet, as it is improvements in isolated areas of the United States. In today’s article, it asks a question I brought up yesterday about what caused some areas of the US to have a decline in childhood obesity – what EXACTLY did those areas do to have success. In the town of Northborough, they have had some success lowing the BMI scores of many students. A child’s BMI (Body Mass Index) is determined by age, gender, height and weight. An age and gender percentile categorizes children’s BMI as underweight, healthy, overweight or obese. This is a town trying to make a difference, and should be commended for their hard work helping children lead healthier lifestyles. To find out more about their success, please visit the Metro West Daily News site to read the complete article. Happy new year everyone!”

From the article…..

National efforts are being made to reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity, but little data is available to guide towns on what works and what doesn’t.

Northborough, however, has become a regional model for fostering healthier generations, and now several cities and towns are following suit in hopes of achieving similar results.

Since its “Building A Healthier Northborough” initiative began in 2009, there has been a substantial decline in the town’s percentage of overweight and obese youths in grades one, four, seven and 10, according to body-mass-index (BMI) data submitted to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH).

A child’s BMI is determined by age, gender, height and weight. An age and gender percentile categorizes children’s BMI as underweight, healthy, overweight or obese.

BMI for age percentiles greater than or equal to the 85th percentile but less than the 95th percentile are considered overweight. When a child’s BMI for age percentile is equal to or greater than the 95th percentile, the child is considered obese.

Northborough saw a 20-percent decrease in the percentage of overweight and obese youths in surveyed grades between 2009 and 2011, according to the DPH’s 2011 report of the Status of Childhood Weight in Massachusetts.

Northborough Program Coordinator Tamara Calise, of the JSI Research and Training Institute, said a small work group comprised of members from a number of town departments made it possible to coordinate anti-obesity efforts.

The town planner created bylaws to promote more walking around Northborough and members of Youth and Family Services used their connections with the schools to move recess times and create guidelines that ask teachers not to give out candy as a reward or hold a child out of recess as punishment for bad behavior, Calise said.

Calise has now taken on the role of project coordinator for the MetroWest Moves partnership, which was started earlier this year and includes Framingham, Hudson and Marlborough. The latter two communities have some of the highest percentages of overweight and obese youth in the region.
