Obesity Fighter http://obesityfighter.com Daily Inspiration For Weight Loss Thu, 23 Jul 2015 22:05:45 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.2 Carrie Underwood’s Fitness Secret http://obesityfighter.com/carrie-underwoods-fitness-secret/ http://obesityfighter.com/carrie-underwoods-fitness-secret/#comments Thu, 23 Jul 2015 22:05:45 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=520 Carrie Underwood was never a big girl when she first graced the television screen as an American Idol contestant.

She has always been a vegetarian from her love for animals.

Dropping the few pounds to get to a smaller size involves a big exercise ball, and being extremely knowledgeable of what she eats. She writes down every little detail of meals to eat healthy and lose weight.

You may think that all vegetarians have it easy when it comes to weight loss and weight maintenance, but you still have to choose the right dressings, and watch meal portions like a hawk.

Lose Weight with Organic Eggs http://obesityfighter.com/lose-weight-with-organic-eggs/ http://obesityfighter.com/lose-weight-with-organic-eggs/#comments Tue, 21 Jul 2015 21:34:54 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=525 Eating organic eggs is a healthy way to lose weight. I personally have found two hard boiled organic eggs to be very filling and nutritious at a total of 140 calories.

Breakfast is two hard boil organic eggs. (I tend to stay away from the regular eggs because the yolk is too hard and disgusting. It could be all the hormones and antibiotics when hens are caged and force fed corn and animal byproducts.) No juice and no sugar. This should keep you full until lunch time.

Lunch, go for a grilled chicken salad. Really watch your portions, it is not necessary to stop eating only when you are full. Again, no juice and no soda.

Dinner, two hard boil organic eggs 15-20 minutes before your meal. Then eat anything you want while watching your portions. Best to stay away from greasy fried food, and juice or soda.

Snacks, stick to fresh fruits. Processed or packaged fruits have a lot of sugar. Just read the labels and you will be fine.

It can get expensive very fast because organic eggs are priced at $3.99 per dozen. This is very healthy, nutritious and never makes you feel sluggish.

I don’t subscribe to the idea of no carbs because it is ridiculous. Eat what you want, but let the organic eggs do the heavy lifting while you watch the meal portions, and eliminate sugar if possible. Remember that you have to enjoy what you eat in order to successfully lose weight.

In less than 1 week, I went from 158 to 153. This is after being plateaued at the 157-159 range for two months. This is just my experience.

http://health.usnews.com/articles/health/healthday/2008/08/12/breakfast-eggs-keep-folks-on-diet.html – clinical studies also confirm the same assumptions about eating eggs to help with weight loss.

Obesity Prevention Tips # 2 – Don’t Clean Your Plate http://obesityfighter.com/obesity-prevention-tips-2-dont-clean-your-plate/ http://obesityfighter.com/obesity-prevention-tips-2-dont-clean-your-plate/#comments Sun, 19 Jul 2015 20:01:49 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=295 We have seen this too often where kids and adults continue to clean up all the food on their plate even when they are full and stuffed like Thanksgiving turkeys. It is absolutely okay to eat half a plate, and put the rest into the fridge.

Imagine yourself going to a restaurant, and the dishes of food that comes out from the kitchen are huge portions. You have to make a choice whether to doggy bag the remaining portions or finish the plate.

The smart choice is doggy bagging it for next time. Just because you don’t finish your serving does not mean you are wasting food.

Retrain yourself. You don’t have to finish the french fries, the last chicken wing, or the extra bite of dessert.

Save it for next time. Let your body have some time to burn off the fuel before feeding it more food.

Summer life is not easy for these kids who are sent off to fat camp by their parents in hopes of helping them lose fat. Many of these Chinese kids grow up being fed repeatedly by over loving parents and grandparents as the only child in the family. Now they are paying the price of the obesity epidemic.

Should We Blame the FDA for Failed Dieting or Failed Weight Loss? http://obesityfighter.com/should-we-blame-the-fda-for-failed-dieting-or-failed-weight-loss/ http://obesityfighter.com/should-we-blame-the-fda-for-failed-dieting-or-failed-weight-loss/#comments Mon, 13 Jul 2015 17:27:32 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=781 The food labeling industry is allowed a 20% margin of error by the FDA. When you are eating a 500 calorie slice of cake, you may be in for a surprise that the slice might be as high as 600 calories but only labeled as 500 calories.

If you are dieting, and counting every calorie that you put into your body, start applying more common sense and think again.

Don’t let the food industry and the FDA with its way with 20% margin of error trick you into eating more than necessary. Let your body decide. When you are satiated and not feeling hungry, it is okay to save untouched food portions for another time. Don’t stuff your face because a certain food is labeled as zero calories. It is a lie, duh.

Obesity Prevention Tips # 13 – Write Down What You Eat http://obesityfighter.com/obesity-prevention-tips-13-write-down-what-you-eat/ http://obesityfighter.com/obesity-prevention-tips-13-write-down-what-you-eat/#comments Sat, 11 Jul 2015 15:53:42 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=453 Write down what you eat for a full week and analyze all the bad food that you can eliminate from your diet. Remove these food items from your sight or throw them out completely if you are serious about losing weight.

Overweight individuals that have no idea why they keep adding on weight have no excuse as to not knowing what they eat or consume everyday, including the types of liquids they drink.

It is very important to keep a food log to help you lose the weight (this is very similar to the process of professional bodybuilder keeping a workout log). When you take on any kind of serious commitment whether it is work, exercising, dieting, or creating new recipes, there needs to be record keeping. Log it, and push forward.

In addition, she would go to the gym for two hours every day.

Her meals consisted of tuna, cold meat, salads and raw vegetables.

She quickly lost over 20 pounds that she had put on for the Bridget Jones’ Diary role. All it takes is discipline and commitment to a goal.

Obesity Prevention Tips # 14 – Holiday Diet http://obesityfighter.com/obesity-prevention-tips-14-holiday-diet/ http://obesityfighter.com/obesity-prevention-tips-14-holiday-diet/#comments Tue, 07 Jul 2015 14:13:59 +0000 http://obesityfighter.com/?p=476 Keeping the weight off and maintaining your weight loss goals are pretty simple by following these rules.

  1. Eat when you are hungry.
  2. Stop eating when you are full.

Your body does not naturally put on more weight just because it is the holidays. Don’t make any excuses to eat more than necessary.

  1. Excuse yourself from the table when finished.
  2. Or eat a lot slower than normal.

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 Sun, 05 Jul 2015 14:06:32 +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.
