Scared into Thinness With Swine Flu

If you are obese, you have more on your plate than you can handle. Shortness of breath, low energy, risk of heart attacks, diabetes, you name it, and you probably fear yourself contracting it one way or another.

While being obese already has a negative stigma of getting sick at any given moment, health officials have found that obesity also increases the risks of swine flu.

Could it be that over weight individuals tend to eat more pork? Or their immune systems are more susceptible to swine flu virus?

Jump Start the Day with a Big Breakfast to Lose Weight

Eating a big solid breakfast helps you lose weight because it is simply the most important meal of the day. After a full night’s rest, your body and mind demands to be recharged. Otherwise, it will start stripping energy from your muscles (thus destroying muscle tissue).

You will also experience less hunger throughout the day, and a decreased craving for snacks.

After an 8 month study, the group that ate a big breakfast had more energy, became more active and lost weight.

We can’t imagine a workplace where your job is always on the line if you don’t make the scale. It should only apply to professional athletes and supermodels because they are paid purely to perform and look good.

What if your biggest asset was your brain, would you starve your brain for the sake of looking lean and keeping your job?

Would you rather be governed by those who fear their weight or people who have a responsibility to the governed if you can’t have both?

Lose weight and get healthy because you want to do it for yourself, don’t let someone else dictate you into eating lettuce 3 meals a day (which is no better than someone calling you a “fat cow” just because they don’t have a weight problem).

Gastric Bypass a Solution for Obesity and Diabetes

Anecdotal evidence supports that gastric bypass may be a solution for the morbidly obese and those suffering from diabetes. After the surgery, patients’ blood sugar levels drop after a few days. However, this is still a very invasive surgery.

It is always important to consider all the available options before selecting gastric bypass. If you don’t change your eating habits and sedentary lifestyle, no surgery or weight loss plan can stop you from slowly killing yourself with an extra helping of food.

Avoid Hangovers Because It Is Destroying Your Diet

Every time you are hungover from a night of drinking, you have set yourself back on average of 500-600 liquid calories.

Before you drink, remember that liquid courage will go straight to your thighs if you really want to lose weight.

Drink in moderation. However if you choose to drink and pass out, chances are that you will gain weight and become fat without eating anything.
