For Effective Weight Loss - Curb Hunger And Avoid The Binge
Curb Hunger and Avoid The Costly Binge
Everyone's been there - you miss a meal or you
are getting used to a lower calorie phase of
your nutrition plan when the munchies hit. You
grab the nearest and quickest food available -
usually a high carb snack food - and you chow down.
And to add insult to injury you find yourself
hungry again just as quickly as someone who
The best thing you can do to avoid this is to
plan ahead and always have a meal ready to go
quickly. Sure, this can't always be done but it's
your best bet to avoiding binges.
When hunger pangs hit - DO SOMETHING! And I
don't mean eat. Drink water, go for a walk, etc.
You'll find that the hunger pangs subside in about
10 minutes or so - unless you've missed a meal and
are really hungry.
If you must snack, make sure to always have high
protein food available. You'll stay fuller longer
as it takes your body more time to digest protein.
Try to keep some of these things handy -
Cooked kitchen strips - one cup has 38 grams of
protein and only 180 calories
Lowfat cottage cheese - one cup has 28 grams of
protein and 168 calories
A three ounce can of white-meat chicken has 14
grams of protein and 70 calories
Two sticks of string cheese has 14 grams of
protein and 160 calories
A full can of tuna packed in spring water - 37
grams of protein and 175 calories
Reach for the nuts. Keeping nuts around will
keep you from binging on high carbohydrate junk food
because they are just as convenient for when you
have to eat something now!
Nuts supply you with good fats that can lower your
cholesterol as well as fiber and important vitamins
and minerals. Make sure to select dry roasted
and unsalted. And don't forget, even though it's
high in good fats, that still translates to 9
calories per gram. Don't every eat.

Co-Dependency and Food: Trying to Fill the Void
Nice girls don't speak up. Nice girls take care of and support others. These are just a few of the messages girls often receive as they are socialized. Often in adulthood, these ingrained messages turn into full-blown co-dependency. Years can go by. Unmet needs build up energy; they demand attention. But without learning skills in setting boundaries, letting others feel their own pain and making oneself a priority, food often becomes the hassle-free, soothing balm to take the edge off and release that pent up energy momentarily, that is until the guilt sets in.
What is the Glycemic Index?
Over the last 30 years, research into food and blood glucose response has completely changed our carbohydrate classification system.
Doubts About Gastric Bypass? One Womans Final Effort to Lose Weight Without Surgery
One may think that on a website called "LivingAfterWLS" you would never read about conventional dieting: losing weight the old fashioned way by eating less and exercising more. One would think WLS proponents would say, "It can't be done. The only way to lose massive weight is with surgery." We should shake our heads with all-knowing smugness and think, "Well, it won't be long and she, too, will be on the surgical table."

Dieting Will Never Be the Same! A Review of How to Make Your Diet Work
According to the American Obesity Association, an astounding 64.5 percent of adult Americans (about 127 million) are categorized as obese or overweight. According to the website's statistics, obesity causes at least 300,000 excess deaths and is responsible for 100 million dollars in healthcare costs each year for obese and overweight Americans.

Losing Weight is Like Eating Ice Cream
"Life is like a box of chocolates," drawled Forrest Gump.
Compulsive Eating Signs
Compulsive eating is characterized mainly by periods of impulsive bingeing or continuous eating. Purging (vomiting or laxatives) are not present, but there may be intervals of repetitive diets or fasts. Body weight can range from normal to severe obesity. Compulsive eating is a behavior driven by desire to reduce anxiety rather than by feelings of hunger. Obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors reduce anxiety and distress, but they create a self-perpetuating cycle. The eating activity provides temporary relief, but it is followed by further distress in the form of guilt, shame, and disgust. This often leads to a vicious cycle of binge eating and depression. Compulsive eating can be a behavior used to fill a void, suppress uncomfortable emotions, cope with problems or to create a state of numbness to everything that is going on. Triggers can be anxiety, depression, stress, boredom or loneliness, dieting, and low self-esteem.
Pediatric Obesity: A Look at the Epidemic
Obesity in America is at an epidemic level. It is a global issue and the statistics only prove that it continues to rise. The world's children face the threats of this global obesity epidemic and the prevalence of obesity in children continue to rise. Over the last 30 years the number of overweight children has doubled. Over 30% of children ages 6-19 are considered overweight. Of these, 15% are considered obese. Unfortunately, excess weight and obesity in childhood has been found to be an indicator of obesity in adulthood and statistics further show that teenagers have an 80% probability of being obese in adulthood.
Why Diets Are A Waste Of Time & Money - What You Can Do Instead
A 'diet' is always seen as a temporary measure. An unpleasant episode that must be endured in order to reach some weight target, often in time for a major event such as a wedding, your own or your children's. Afterwards, with a big sigh of relief that its over, we get back to normal eating. In what seems no time at all, especially if a holiday is involved, the weight is back where it was, and you wonder; was it worth it?
Dieting? You Must Reset Your Weight-o-stat
You need to reset your weight-o-stat. No matter how much you exercise and diet, if you don't reset your weight-o-stat, you will often go back to your pre-set weight. It is like your home. If the thermostat is set on 72 and you open a window, the temperature might change for a bit, but the thermostat will kick in and bring the temperature back to normal. Until you change the setting it will be 72 in the house. Until you change the setting of your weight-o-stat, you will not be slim.
Low Carb Diets: Craze or Crazy?
Low carb diets, though popular, have met with much controversy. This type of diet simply doesn't fit with what the American Heart Association recommends. But the success that so many people have had with low carb diets can really make you wonder if the food pyramid that we all learned in grade school, has been wrong all along.
On A Diet? Ensure You Get Enough Nutritional Supplements For Your Good Health
There is never any absolute certainty about what the nutritional requirements are for the human body of a certain age, size and gender.

Weight Loss Woes
Weight loss is an issue that affects men and women alike. Children, particularly young girls, are also starting to think about weight loss at younger and younger ages. This isn't really that surprising if you take a look at all of the pressure that is put on Americans to be thin and beautiful. Ironically, for many people, it's that pressure to measure up to what they see on television and in magazines that drives them to overeat in the first place.
Americas Secret Addiction
America is a nation of self-disclosers, amiably acceptant of our weaknesses. Celebrities, family members, coworkers and friends think nothing of admitting their compulsions and dependencies on alcohol, street drugs, prescription medications. We enter rehab programs, clean up, dry out, and go on with our lives: beating our problem or entering a long series of relapses and treatment episodes. Except, perhaps, for politicians or ministers, there is little social stigma attached to such mistakes unless there are criminal overtones that may lead to incarceration.
