The key lies in the motivation, and arming them with real applicable life examples of how to get fit instead of wallowing in rolls excess fat deposits.

Young minds are very impressionable, all they need it to be shown the right way to stay healthy instead being bombarded by junk food commercials.

The overweight-obese group were found to eat less plant based foods (translated to mean overweight-obese individuals were consuming more processed foods, junk food, and sugars).

What Does Jeremy Lin Eat? http://obesityfighter.com/what-does-jeremy-lin-eat/ http://obesityfighter.com/what-does-jeremy-lin-eat/#comments Wed, 10 Dec 2014 07:16:43 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=971 One thing you should know is that Jeremy Lin does not like to cook. For every meal that he eats, he must selectively choose the right combination of proteins to maintain an NBA physique that helps him endure the grueling 82 games schedule per NBA season.

Every day, he must consume 1 gram of protein for every pound he weighs, 8 servings of vegetables, and 5 large bottles of water (20 oz is about a large size bottle) to keep him energized for all the workouts that took him from an undrafted basketball player to the starting point guard of the New York Knicks.

A typical daily meal plan for Jeremy Lin

Breakfast

  • 5 eggs
  • Ham, turkey, or other lean meats

Post Workout

  • Protein shake with 30 grams of protein

Lunch

  • Salad
  • Chicken breast, salmon, or turkey sandwich

Dinner

  • Protein shake
  • Large salad, or pasta and chicken

It is important to note that Jeremy Lin’s diet avoids red meat, or fatty cuts of meat. Avoids all junk food when possible.

Carnie Wilson Manages Weight with Gastric Bypass http://obesityfighter.com/carnie-wilson-manages-weight-with-gastric-bypass/ http://obesityfighter.com/carnie-wilson-manages-weight-with-gastric-bypass/#comments Mon, 08 Dec 2014 06:16:07 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=522 Carnie Wilson lost 150 pounds from 300 pounds at one point after gastric bypass surgery. (Gastric bypass in no simple surgery, where doctors reduce your stomach to the size of a walnut and reconnect the small intestine to the new stomach.)

She has since regained some of the weight back. A tablespoon of almond butter at night, and tasting everything you cook for family and friends will do that to you.

What must be emphasized is that gastric bypass is not a miracle weight loss procedure as shown by Carnie’s continued weight struggles post surgery. If a person’s eating behaviors do not change, they will eventually gain their weight back as the body adopts to the new stomach and shorter small intestine.

Which is why Carnie had to diet and exercise vigorously to lose the weight she regained.

http://www.thatsfit.com/2009/10/23/carnie-wilson-weight-loss-reality-tv-show/

Again, the proper strategies to losing weight as emphasized is eating properly and remaining active.

Obesity Prevention Tips # 11 – No Soda http://obesityfighter.com/obesity-prevention-tips-11-no-soda/ http://obesityfighter.com/obesity-prevention-tips-11-no-soda/#comments Thu, 04 Dec 2014 03:19:32 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=445 Just say no to soda, and save yourself from a world of hurt if you are already leaning towards becoming obese or gaining unwanted pounds. 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.

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 Fri, 28 Nov 2014 01:38:01 +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.
