Eliminate Belly Fat with Sit Ups http://obesityfighter.com/eliminate-belly-fat-with-sit-ups/ http://obesityfighter.com/eliminate-belly-fat-with-sit-ups/#comments Sat, 21 Mar 2015 21:24:00 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=461 Forget it! You will not be losing any belly fat with just sit ups.

If this was remotely possible, all you would see it on The Biggest Loser would be contestants doing sit ups non-stop and plenty of product placements for As-Seen-on-TV abdominal machine gimmicks for $49.95

Sit ups will however help you develop muscle under the layers of fat (if you happen to be overweight).

Your goal however should be to lose overall body weight, and fat deposit with total body workouts.

Easy Exercises to Lose Weight (for Fat and Overweight Individuals) http://obesityfighter.com/easy-exercises-to-lose-weight-for-fat-and-overweight-individuals/ http://obesityfighter.com/easy-exercises-to-lose-weight-for-fat-and-overweight-individuals/#comments Tue, 17 Mar 2015 19:23:03 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=427 Going to the gym is easier said than done considering most machines are not designed to accommodate someone who is 400-500 pounds. Do not be discouraged.

Here’s a list of easy exercises to lose weight without the gym:

If you have access to the gym:

  • Go straight to the pool. Swimming is one of the best and easiest exercises to help you lose weight.
  • Try the rowing machines. They can accommodate any width and sizes for a total workout on your upper body and legs.

Remember your long term goal is to become and remain active to help you lose weight. Please stay away from sugar and processed foods.

Gastric Sleeve Weight Loss Surgery http://obesityfighter.com/gastric-sleeve-weight-loss-surgery/ http://obesityfighter.com/gastric-sleeve-weight-loss-surgery/#comments Sun, 15 Mar 2015 19:17:05 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=338 The new gastric sleeve surgery may be a better option than gastric bypass where no intestines are being rerouted. Patients have experienced 70-80 pounds of weight loss in about 4 months after the procedure.

Watch the video where the doctor explains that the procedure is nearly half the risk of the more radical gastric bypass procedure.

Obesity Invades France http://obesityfighter.com/obesityinvades-france/ http://obesityfighter.com/obesityinvades-france/#comments Wed, 11 Mar 2015 16:06:03 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=450 Obesity has reached France, a country that once prided itself of small portions and lots of leafy greens. More of the country has assimilated to “exercising less, eating more fast food, and landing more service jobs where time is spent sitting at a desk”.

Danny Cahill’s Weight Loss Secret – The Biggest Loser Winner http://obesityfighter.com/danny-cahill-weight-loss-secret-the-biggest-loser-winner/ http://obesityfighter.com/danny-cahill-weight-loss-secret-the-biggest-loser-winner/#comments Mon, 09 Mar 2015 14:59:09 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=551 Danny Cahill had hit rock bottom in terms of weight before becoming a contestant on the Biggest Loser. With absolute determination, in addition to emotional support from teammates and trainers, Danny lost 239 pounds in 137 days (11 weeks on the Biggest Loser ranch + 60 days at home). That averages out to losing 1.7 lbs a day.

This is an amazing accomplishment based on simple weight loss secrets.

  1. Ask yourself: “Why are you 430 pounds?” again and again (as this was the specific weight that Danny was at when he first arrived on the Biggest Loser ranch) to understand the underlying cause of the weight gain.
  2. Start right NOW! Don’t hold off lifestyle changes after a two hour break, or wait till Monday. Move around, hit the gym and break a sweat. Every little bit of momentum helps.
  3. Reach for your goals.

Again, congratulations to Danny for winning the Biggest Loser Season 8 and taking home the grand prize of $250,000. Well deserved!

Gastric Bypass a Solution for Obesity and Diabetes http://obesityfighter.com/gastric-bypass-a-solution-for-obesity-and-diabetes/ http://obesityfighter.com/gastric-bypass-a-solution-for-obesity-and-diabetes/#comments Thu, 05 Mar 2015 13:01:13 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=200 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.
