Soda basically adds on lots of unnecessary calories without filling you up with real fuel. Where as water will quench your thirst without calories.

Also remember there is no such thing as diet soda. Observe the most common characteristics among fat and overweight people, they drink lots of diet soda (which is an absolute joke the junk food corporations are playing on everyone’s health).

Switch over to water, this will guarantee that you will lose weight in the long run.

Possible Junk Food Tax http://obesityfighter.com/possible-junk-food-tax/ http://obesityfighter.com/possible-junk-food-tax/#comments Mon, 26 Jan 2015 00:38:28 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=265 Unhealthy eating and foods continue to contribute to the obesity epidemic the same way that smoking contributes to increase incidences of lung cancer. While food corporations make money off sugar water and snacks, they help to create a vicious cycle of obese consumers who cannot control themselves from opening a pack of potato chips or downing a couple of cheap carbonated sugar drinks.

Health experts want to curb the cost of obesity and diabetes by proposing a tax over junk food, and apply that extra money to subsidize and promote healthier foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables.

Michelle Obama Keeping Her Kids’ Weight on Track http://obesityfighter.com/michelle-obama-keeping-her-kids-weight-on-track/ http://obesityfighter.com/michelle-obama-keeping-her-kids-weight-on-track/#comments Wed, 21 Jan 2015 23:09:11 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=783 One visit to the family pediatrician is all it took to convince Michelle Obama to instill good activity and eating habits into her growing daughters. Being the parent, and the person with the last say, it is important for children to understand they can’t do everything that they want to do because not everything is good for them.

Changes include:

  • No more TV on weekdays
  • Replace juice and soda with water
  • Add fruits and vegetables to diet

“Consumers should stick with what we have known for decades and eat fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables,” – Susanne Talcott

Dance Your Way to Weight Loss http://obesityfighter.com/dance-your-way-to-weight-loss/ http://obesityfighter.com/dance-your-way-to-weight-loss/#comments Thu, 15 Jan 2015 21:05:52 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=748 Dancing a fun activity that anyone regardless of age or weight can grove to. It does not necessarily have to be strenuous where you practicing for dance competition. However, it does have to be consistent where your body is trained to continued doing it for 3 months to a full year or more.

Jenny Pleva committed herself to losing weight in 2009, and in one years time, she went from 286 to 176 by doing Zumba classes.

http://www.thepittsburghchannel.com/news/22107435/detail.html

Richard Simmons always had the right idea. You need to have fun in order to lose weight. Dance, move around, don’t be a boring sap and sit on the couch watching TV. That’s how you gain weight, become miserable, and blame the world because you never challenged yourself at shedding the pounds through commitment and hard work on changing bad habits.

Also, Alicia Duque lost 110 pounds being on a contestant on season one of Dance Your Ass Off. It works, what are you waiting for?

Chemical Imbalance Contributes to Weight Gain and Obesity http://obesityfighter.com/chemical-imbalance-contributes-to-weight-gain-and-obesity/ http://obesityfighter.com/chemical-imbalance-contributes-to-weight-gain-and-obesity/#comments Sun, 11 Jan 2015 18:56:19 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=966 It is common for normal weight people to look down on heavyset individuals without even trying to understand why they are overweight. Discriminating against someone who gains weight because they can not control the feelings of hunger and urge to eat due to medication or being born with an altered brain chemistry imbalance is no different than mistreating another person due to their being born male or female.

There may be few clinical studies documenting one’s chemical imbalance causing people to eat more and more, but anecdotal evidence are littered throughout the internet retelling stories of individuals who experienced excessive weight gain when taking anti-depressant drugs (or similar medication trigger the chemical imbalance). As told: “Everything became difficult to concentrate on other than food”.

Once they were off the medication, they were able to lose the weight because the urges to eat the instant they felt hungry had disappeared.

There may be no perfect solution to fighting obesity, but there can be more acceptance of the fact that people are born different with issues beyond their control without even knowing it, such as having a bigger appetite and feeling hungry all the time.

Extreme Dieting http://obesityfighter.com/extreme-dieting/ http://obesityfighter.com/extreme-dieting/#comments Fri, 09 Jan 2015 18:17:02 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=406 Celebrities Victoria Beckham and Beyonce are one of few celebrities to vouch that they have at one time or another tried a form of extreme dieting. Whether these are fad diets or not, they continue to have a following because they tend to produce quick results without the work.

Before trying out any of these extreme forms of dieting, please consult with your private physician.

  • Lemon Detox Diet – squeezed lemons, tree syrup, and cayenne pepper for 7-10 days
  • Celebrity Slim – two meal replacements for 7 days
  • Cabbage Soup Diet – consume cabbage soup as much as possible each day
  • Quick Cleanse 7 Day Detox – no coffee, alcohol, dairy, sugars, meat for 15 days (while taking cleansing pills)

What we fail to understand is why we have become such gluttonous pigs when it comes to alcohol and sugared coffees. These tend to bring on a world of hurt that throws your energy and concentration levels out of routine. Don’t forget the expanding waistline too when you are partying hard or working overtime.
