No Fuss Weight-Loss
To lose weight and keep it off you need an easy to follow no fuss plan. You need a plan that is simple and sensible. You need a plan that you can use everyday to get slim and healthy.
You need a plan that builds on your success day-by-day. A plan that keeps you inspired and motivated by seeing results-fast! If you don't see and feel results fast it's far to easy to be tempted by the next fast food drive through or the next vending machine. Far to easy.
You need a plan that works for you, a plan that blends in to your lifestyle. A plan that you can live with. Forever. That's the real secret to permanent weight-loss.
Most people go on train wreck diets. They follow the latest fads. They start the diet, lose some weight, then go off of it and gain all the weight back. Sometimes even more. That's called yo-yo- dieting--up and down and back up. You don't want to do that, it's bad for your health.
Permanent weight loss requires changes in your lifestyle. Changes in your behaviors. You can't expect to lose weight by doing the same things like overeating and not exercising.
You can't expect to lose weight and keep it off by ignoring good nutrition and eating foods that are bad for you. Junk food leads to a junked body. Diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, stroke and arthritis are just a few of the health problems associated with obesity.
When I say "junk food" I don't mean just fast food, donuts, or candy, I mean all the foods that don't seem so bad but are full of sugar, starches and fats. Foods like fruit juice are full of sugar. You're better off to eat the fruit and drink some water. Foods like pasta, rice and french fries are full of empty calories and cause an insulin response that puts your body into fat storage mode.
Permanent weight loss requires you to be informed about what foods have good nutritional value and what ones don't. You don't need to take a college nutrition course but you do need to know some basic "nutrition 101" principles.
To be successful with your weight loss and management you need to know the difference between proteins, fats and carbohydrates. You need to know how much protein you should be eating, how much carbohydrates and what kinds of fats.
You need to know the effects of sugar on your body. Most mothers think they're doing a good thing by giving their children apple juice instead of soda.
Being confused and uniformed leads to weight problems. Weight problems for yourself and maybe even your family. Young children have no control over the foods they eat. Food is either fed to them or placed before them when They're old enough to eat. Sure they can refuse to eat, but it's usually not the cookies and cakes but the carrots and broccoli.
Children can be taught early on to eat healthy or to eat unhealthy. If parents recognized this fact and were aware of the habits they were passing on through modeling lifestyle behaviors the obesity epidemic could probably be reversed in a few years. And I'm sure the rates of drinking and smoking in young people would go down as well.
I can hear some well meaning mothers or grandparents saying, "well they have to have some treats some of the times". Maybe on an occasional birthday. But when the children are older and as people become more educated about the causes of obesity there's going to be some serious finger pointing.
Remember when the Marlboro Man was cool? Remember when everyone smoked, even pregnant women? Things have changed haven't they? The social stigma attached to smoking will be dwarfed by the stigma that is becoming attached to obesity. And the difference between smoking and obesity is you can't hide the fact that you're fat.
What about portion control? We've become a super-sized nation because of super-sized portions. When it comes to restaurants we rate them good or bad according to how much food is on the plate.
At home, people are too busy these days to weigh, measure and count food units. You need simple ways to eyeball serving sizes for portion control.
A simple, easy to follow, no fuss plan is the answer to your weight problem. Why complicate things and cause yourself more stress?

Before and After Your Liposuction
Although liposuction is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries in the U.S., prospective patients need to be aware that their individual results may vary. Many who are considering the surgery begin with false hopes that the surgery can transform their bodies into the firm and toned images portrayed in the media. Although most patients are satisfied with the end results of the surgery, it needs to be understood that with any surgery, there is a risk of infection, swelling, and bruising as well as other, more serious, side effects. Liposuction usually gives the best results to healthy people of normal weight with firm, elastic skin. Those who are overweight or who have skin that is not as firm may not achieve the results they hope for.

Know How Many Calories To Cut For Permanent Weight Loss
It is not recommended to lose more than 1 pound per week for healthily weight loss. The reason for this has do to with the issues which quick and drastic weight loss can have on your body's metabolism and muscle mass. When you lose a lot of weight quickly, you really need to strictly monitor where this weight is coming from. Is it water weight, body fat or muscle mass? The majority of the time, it unfortunately comes from lean muscle mass and this is exactly what will cause serious issues with your metabolism. Muscle is your body's most potent and active tissue for burning calories and body fat. Its basically your body's "furnace" which you want to always keep burning hot. When someone loses a lot of weight, which usually comes from crash dieting or some other unhealthy way of dropping the weight, the body's lean muscle mass is cannibalized and you lose some of your biggest "power" tissue for keeping a lean body.

No matter which diet you choose, here are some tips that may be helpful to you in your weight loss regimen: 1. Know how much your weight affects much more than your appearance. Your health, quality of living, and self-esteem are also affected by your weight. Losing weight now will bring about many positive changes in your life. 2. See your doctor for a complete physical if you have not done so recently. Realize that everyone makes dieting mistakes and everyone has occasional slips. If you overeat one day, just pick up where you left off the next day and don't be too hard on yourself. 3. Understand that if you are committed to your diet plan and want to lose weight permanently you must not only eat healthy foods but you must also change how you eat your food, you must increase your activity level, and realize that you will have to make permanent changes in your behavior. 4. Set reasonable goals for yourself as far as how much want you want to lose in any period of time. Trying to lose 10 lbs. in a week or 30 lbs. in a month is not only unreasonable but could be harmful to your health. 5. Know that, If you do not enjoy the foods your diet allows, then you won't be able to stick to it. Choose your diet plan carefully and ask yourself if you can live with it for a long period of time. 6. Realize that emotional issues rather than hunger alone often cause overeating. Find a way to cope with the problem of emotional eating and recognize it when it happens. The potential health problems due to obesity are very serious. If your will power wanes, remember the risks involved with being overweight. 7. Genetics, your ethnic background, your home and work environments, and any physical issues you may have will affect your effort to lose weight. Accept the things you can't change and set attainable goals. 8. Moderation is the key when beginning any diet. Overly severe restrictions on the foods you are allowed to eat and the omission of entire foods groups will lead to cravings and binges. 9.
