I learned about gaining weight when I heard the question of a skinny girl asking, "how does someone gain weight." First I came to surprise because gaining weight is not something that people want to have around you. On the other hand we hear that everyone is asking each other for tips on how to lose weight.
This article does not intend to provide the reader with good and healthy ways of gaining weight. The intention is informative and is raise an awareness about the fact of how many people are interested to gain weight.
I promised her that I will do research on how to gain weight and on gaining weight without hurting your health.
I was surprised to see that in this age when the majority around us are searching for various weight loss programs, there are so many who are looking for ways to gain weight.
The data provided by Overture.com shows that in May of 2004 the number of searches that were conducted for "gain weight" was 20514. 16810 searches were done by using the term "weight gain." Slightly differently, "gaining weigh," were searched 5621 times. This does not include the pregnancy category because that number is 4858.
The conclusion is that to our surprise there are many in various countries and cultures among us that are interested in weight gaining. eMaxHealth.com will attempt to bring more articles on this topic that would serve the weight gaining information needs of our readers.

Buyer Beware: Purchasing Fat Burners and Other Supplements Online
Each month I receive hundreds of e-mails from consumers who have been bilked out
of their hard earned dollars by unscrupulous supplement / fat burner
manufacturers. Manufacturers who have added them to monthly recurring billing
cycles without their permission. Manufacturers who don't honor their money-back
guarantees, and, while providing a 1-800 number for refunds, but don't hire a
real, breathing person to monitor this number. These manufacturers treat their
customers with disdain, and in general, regard them as little more than sheep
who need to be parted from their money.

Can Eating Certain Foods Help You to Lose Weight?
The best way to lose weight is by consuming fewer calories than you expend or conversely, by expending more calories than you consume.
Diet and Exercise Evolution: Water: 65% of Your Body Cant be Wrong
The function of your kidneys is to filter your blood (which is mostly water). And one
of the functions of your liver is to metabolize fat. If you don't consume enough
water, your kidneys can't function properly, so your liver starts to help perform
kidney functions. So, if your liver is busy helping your ailing kidneys, you can't burn
as much fat. Let me repeat that: No matter how much you exercise, if you don't
drink enough water, your liver will not metabolize fat for you, because it is
trying to help your kidneys.
Too Much Water?
Being hyper-hydrated (consuming too much water) is not in any way harmful
, and actually helps your body metabolize fat. The greatest ill effect of excess
water consumption is that you will visit the washroom more often. Consider it a
chance to fit in a little more exercise into your daily routine.
There have been a few cases of long distance runners who have died from drinking
water to toxic levels, but this is extremely rare, and their situation is very unique, so
it is nothing for a normal person to worry about.
You may have a medical condition that causes you to retain water, probably because
of excess salt (sodium) in your system. The solution is simple: drink more
water. Your body retains water for the same reason it retains fat: your body
thinks that it's hard to come by. If you teach your body that food is abundant, it will
stop storing it. If you teach your body that water is abundant by drinking more of
it, your body will stop storing it. For more information on how your body adapts to
various stimuli, read my articles about adaptation on my website, they're free.
The more water you drink the healthier your skin becomes, because it has to be
moisturized from the inside and out. It also contributes to joint lubrication,
reducing the risk of injury in any activity. Water is the best cure for constipation,
and should be your first choice, even before increasing fiber or taking
When you are active, you should drink even more water, especially on hot days, to
replace what you lose in sweat. Do not wait until you're thirsty, because
that is your body telling you that it is already under-hydrated. Try to keep yourself
over-hydrated for best health. Here's an extra tip: cold water is more easily
absorbed into your system, plus it slightly lowers your body temperature, so you
have to burn a few extra calories to bring your body temperature back up.
I Drink Plenty of Coffee, That's Mostly Water, Right?
What counts as water? Some say "only water", but some research has found that
fruit juices that are mostly water can be counted towards your daily quota.
However, you simply can't drink as much juice as you can water. Juice will fill you
up, and contains sugar which you should try to minimize in your diet. So, it's really
not a substitute for simple, clear water. And even though coffee is made with
mostly water, it does not count since it is a diuretic and actually
strips water from your system. Colas are also full of that diuretic caffeine, besides
their ultra-high sugar content, so soft drinks should be the first item to stop
consuming if you're trying to lose weight. Replace those "alternatives" with a
glass of water, and you'll feel better and start losing pounds and inches.
It was recently found that even diet sodas do not help dieters, go to the "news"
section of my site to read more about this research.
I hope it goes without saying that alcohol, even when mixed with water, is a diuretic
and my advice is to minimize your consumption of alcoholic drinks.
You don't have to drink a huge glass or two all at once, either. I have a large
glass of water at my desk all day. As soon as it is empty, I refill it. I naturally
sip it whenever I like, and I end up drinking more than my quota of water every day.
Weight Loss Success ? When there are NO More Options Left!
One of the worst things you can hear in life is when your doctor says, "There are no more options for you." What if you had to live your life thinking that there are no options, no way to turn your life around? Many times in life our health is taken for granted. Then something happens out of the blue that makes us think about life, our families and our health.
Basic Approaches To Weight Management
Being over weight is usually being 20 percent or more over the normal weight for his or her age, sex, build, and height. According to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, a person's weight is healthy if it falls within the acceptable range for his or her height and age; if the pattern of fat distribution does not place the person at increased risk for certain diseases; and if the person has no medical problem for which a physician recommends that he or she lose weight.

Health Secrets of Cayenne
For many years, herbalists believe that Cayenne is the most useful herb on the entire planet. It's especially significant in the health aid of the entire digestive and circulatory system. Cayenne has even been known to stop heart attacks in less than 30 seconds. In addition, it increases the effectiveness of other herbs when mixed together. For example, just a teaspoon of cayenne mixed with a tablespoon of olive oil helps to prevent sea and/or air sickness. It is also used as a weight loss aid when mixed with Ginger Root, Apple Cider Vinegar, Potassium, and a few other herbs. In fact, there is a powerful night time fat burner on the market that incorporates Cayenne into their secret mix of herbs that safely burns fat while you sleep.

Is Your Goal Really Weight Loss?
Are you ashamed of your weight? Do you have a goal weight that you want to reach through weight loss? I'd say so, it's been pushed into our brains many times over and over again that "weight loss" is what we want to accomplish. There are weight loss guides, weight loss supplements, and many other things that push "weight loss". Many people even set their goals to be at a certain weight. Additionally, the medical community has developed an "ideal weight" chart, which can further add to the confusion about weight loss.
