In the early nineties I had the opportunity to work with some of the most famous movie stars in the world. As a manager and personal trainer of Kathy Smith?s health club I experienced first hand the secrets to the stars. Here are a few things they did to look like they do:

The Best Diet/Way To Lose Weight
The diet that worked for me
Are You Losing Body Fat or Water?
?I tried that diet and lost 8 pounds in the first week!?
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 NOW or Else!
If you knew when you were going to die, would you really want to know? If you knew when you were going to lose your life, would you do anything differently? If you had a choice of living longer or living a better quality of life, which would you choose, longer or better?
Weight Loss for Good ? If Only You Had Known?
Whether coming from a close friend, the nightly news or from a letter in the mail, it?s hard to face the truth at times. Hear-ing it can really cut to the core of our be-ings.
Lose the Weight for GOOD ? Nothing to Lose or EVERYTHING to Lose?
Some of you will not like what I'm going to say, even though it is the truth. That may be where the issue of America's health problems lies. No one wants to give you the truth, you may not come back to see them.
How to Gain More Pleasure While Losing Weight
It's easy to lose sight of our goals, "Do I eat one of these delicious looking, fruit engorged, glossy, sugar coated lovelies or ... that other thing. What was that? Something about losing weight? Ah, well, it's just one little Danish."
Stop Trusting the Scale--Its Probably Wrong Anyway
Have you ever stepped on the scale after a week of "being really good" only to be rewarded with an eye popping four pound gain? Don't despair! Your scale isn't trying to ruin your efforts and it doesn't hate you. True health is measured in many ways, only one of which is your outward appearance, and what you weigh is the least reliable measure of all.
2 Simple Steps to Effective Weight Loss
It's agreed that if you raise the amount of calories you burn and watch what you eat, both the food and the portions, you'll eventually start losing weight. Don't make it more complicated than this.
What Makes Your Blood Cholesterol High or Low
Your blood cholesterol level is affected not only by what you eat but also by how quickly your body makes LDL-cholesterol and disposes of it. In fact, your body makes all the cholesterol it needs, and it is not necessary to take in any additional cholesterol from the foods you eat.
Mind, Body Weight Loss for life equals behavior change - The Acceptance Factor
Getting to the ROOT of the matter: If the plants in your garden are not healthy looking, just trimming them back will not take care of the problem. What do the roots look like? I am no psychologist, but there is a very interesting twist you need to understand before you begin any weight loss or fitness program. To change unwanted behaviors, it?s important to acknowledge your thinking toward exercise and eating. A lot of people believe they know what that thinking is, but haven?t come to grips with their core beliefs. In other words, they have to get to the ?root of the matter.?

How to Do the Atkins Diet Right?
Let me tell you something - if you are doing the Atkins Diet, you might be doing it WRONG. I have been on diet forums for years, have consulted thousands of people on low carb diets, and I am seeing it again and again. People don't know how to implement a low carb diet. Very often people fail to lose weight or to adapt to the low carb life style. Many people give it up after a couple of days because they don't know how to do it right. The Atkins Diet is the most famous low carb diet, but it is full of pitfalls just waiting for you to walk into.

Was The Ephedra Ban Really a Success?
Ephedra and Ephedrine consumers are still under the assumption that the Ephedra ban is still in place. It probably comes as a great surprise that the ban on Ephedra, one of nature's most powerful weight loss supplements, was lifted in April of 2005. A Utah Judge overturned the FDA's decision. So why is it that the most sought after diet pill so difficult to get your hands on? We spoke to four of the top nutritional suppliers. They tell us that the demand is higher than ever. However, they admit they haven't been following the new ruling. As a result, they missed the boat.

Lose Weight Permanently And Maximize Health With New Diet & Exercise Habits
I'm sick of all the fad diets I see people preaching about, as if the only thing that matters is losing a lot of weight fast. We need to focus on permanent weight loss as a result of permanent changes to dieting and exercise habits. Unless you have extremely potent will-power, this can be a tough task to complete. One proven solution is to get support from other people who are not only your friends, but must be in the same situation that you are; they must know exactly what you're going through today. Think of this small community as your weight loss partners.

3 Ways Going with the Flow Will Make You Fat - And What To Do About It!
Wanna know the truth? If you're going to be slim, you're going to have to swim against the current. You're going to have to take charge of your body and make your own decisions?cause if you go with the flow today, I guarantee that you're going to be fat.
Here are 3 reasons why:
#1) Rampant Portion Sizes
'Supersize it', 'Biggie Fries', 'Value Meal', 'Super Big Gulp' ? phrases that we use so commonly, it's hard to believe that we'd have to explain what they mean to someone from another era.
Restaurants have blown their portion sizes so big in the name of providing 'value' that one meal could feed a small soccer team.
Considering that your stomach is roughly the size of your fist (but thank goodness it stretches!), the portion sizes you get today in the average restaurant could probably fill 5 or more stomachs.
But we're told to get our money's worth right? So go ahead and eat up. That way you can spend your money going to the doctor for obesity related health problems later. That's truly getting your money's worth!
#2) Diet as Religion
Diets boast a stellar 2-5% success rate (that's a 98% FAILURE rate by the way). And yet if an alien landed in North America, he (or she) would be convinced that our society must be built on the value of dieting.
Billboards, magazines, books, television shows, ads, even restaurant menus?everywhere you look you're inundated with the latest diet, diet food or diet plan. Diets are touted as the ONLY solution to weight loss.
We have more diets on the market now than ever before. We have more people on a diet now than ever before ? and yet we continue to get fatter?is there ANY POSSIBLE connection here?
#3) Escalator Generation
Go with the flow and you'll enjoy a multitude of worldly conveniences. You can microwave your dinner in 5 minutes, load your dishwasher in 2 and pay the dog walker in 1. You don't have to walk to the store - just hop in the car. Your kids don't have to go swimming ? they've got a new Xbox game. Don't bother taking the stairs because there's an elevator.
You can sit at a desk for long hours without even getting up from your chair. And when you do come home from work ? you have the luxury of flopping on the couch and watching 'Friends' while eating takeout.
Go with the flow my friend and you'll expend less energy while eating more. Oh - and you'll also be told that taking a pill is the only way to solve the problem of your ever-increasing waistline.
One of the best photographs I ever saw was of the front of a gym. There was a staircase leading up to the gym with an escalator beside it. And you guessed it ? people were taking the escalator UP to the gym! The only guy on the stairs was walking DOWN them. That pretty much sums up the problem.
Unfortunately, if you go with the flow in our world today, chances are very high that you're going to get fat. BUT by knowing what you're up against, you can take steps to go against the flow. By taking a stand, taking charge and making positive choices for your body ? you can live slim and healthy in a world skewed towards weight gain.
Weight Loss: Its Not Always What You Eat, But What You Dont Eat
On a little island half way in between Guam and the
Philippines there is a rampant epidemic affecting
the inhabitants. This tiny island of approximately
8,200 people is not afflicted with famine or a deadly
disease as you might think when talking about an
epidemic... the islanders are dying at much earlier
ages that at any other time in their history. They have
alarmingly high rates of heart disease, type 2 diabetes
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.
Drink Beer AND Lose Weight
Want to shed that beer belly? Why not try the low-carbohydrate approach? Following the philosophy of today's most popular low-carbohydrate books, dieters gradually increase the early restrictions of their daily carbohydrate intake while excess weight continues to come off, once again enjoying starchy foods like potatoes, rice and pasta ... in moderation, of course.
