Struggles With Losing A Flabby Stomach by Robert D. Franklin

There are hundreds of fitness questions every day from people all over the world that carry the most common theme: struggles with losing that flabby stomach fat that doesn't seem to want to go away no matter what.

Right here, we'll finally uncover those elusive six pack abs that everyone desires and get rid of that nasty belly fat for good.

We need to focus on real techniques that are going to get you lasting results, and get you to avoid all of these "quick-fix" scams and gimmicks blasted through the media.

Several of the mistakes that we see every day where people are going wrong in their fat loss attempts are:

1. Most people are wasting too much of their time doing hundreds of reps of ineffective crunches, situps, and other "abs pumping" exercises in their attempt at losing stomach fat. We've discovered that there are certain highly effective exercises that stimulate your metabolism much better, and increase your fat burning hormone levels much more.

Surprisingly, the majority of these most effective exercises for stomach fat loss are NOT "abs-specific" exercises. Not only that, but you're showed how to combine them to get the best metabolic and fat loss results possible, which would change your entire body shape.

2. Most people are spending too much time doing hours boring monotonous cardio routines.

After all the research, the conclusion has come to be that the majority of people out there are not doing the correct method of cardio exercise. They may even actually be decreasing their metabolic rate by doing the exercises wrong.

3. Most people are failing miserably with fad diets.

It's been revealed why most low-carb or low-fat diets are actually working against what your body needs to become lean and ripped and maintain it for life! We can show to stop falling for the fad diets and finally develop an absolutely healthy lifestyle that you can actually enjoy without being overly restrictive.

Think Before You Bite by Mareya Ibrahim

Eat Cleaner The all Natural Fruit, Vegetable, Seafood, Poultry wash,wipe and spray

What happens to our food supply between the field and the fork? Most food has not only traveled thousands of miles, it’s been touched by dozens of hands and doused with who-knows-what, leaving the cleanliness of our meals questionable.

Why use EAT CLEANER™? Because rinsing with water alone is not enough to ensure your produce is as safe for your family’s food supply as it should be. Pesticides, waxes, organic residues and surface contaminants can wreak havoc on your health. Here’s the facts in a nutshell:

SOILS AND DIRT RESIDUE – According to the CDC, fresh manure used to fertilize vegetables can also contaminate them, as is practiced with organically grown foods. Animal feces are the source of many of today's life-threatening foodborne illnesses, particularly E.coli. Because organic standards support the recycling of animal feces as a method of improving soil fertility in croplands, fecal residue on organically grown produce requires attention. EAT CLEANER™? thoroughly removes the soils and dirt residues that can carry these harmful pathogens. Even fruit with peels should be thoroughly cleaned, since those same fingers that touched the skin will be co-mingling with the inner flesh. Imagine getting your own crevices squeaky clean without a nice sudsy shower.

SURFACE CONTAMINANTS: Before your produce gets into your own two hands, it’s traveled an average of 1,500 miles and touched about 20 other people’s grimy mitts. If you eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, but always peel them first, you may be missing out on a source of fibre and other nutrients. Not only are most fruit and vegetable peels good for you, their bright colours add pizzazz to your meal. Playing it safe and washing thoroughly helps remove any unwanted residue. Even triple-washed bagged salad can be a pathogen playground, so giving them a good spray, soak and spin with the EAT CLEANER™? ‘3-S’ System is the clean way to go.

PESTICIDES: Data from the USDA’s Pesticide Data Program (PDP) show 90 percent or more of conventionally produced apples, peaches, pears and strawberries have pesticide residues. Substances such as Azinphos methyl, a dangerous neurotoxin banned in Europe , commonly found on apples. There is growing scientific consensus that even very small doses of pesticides can adversely affect people, especially during the vulnerable periods of in utero and early childhood development when organ systems are maturing most quickly, when toxic defenses are least established, and when early programming of risks for chronic disease later in life takes place. Exposure to pesticides is linked to chronic diseases including Parkinson’s Disease, child and adult cancers and neurodevelopmental. The bottom line is many pesticides are water-resistant to help withstand the elements, so rinsing them under water just won’t get the job done.

WAXES: Edible wax is applied to trap moisture and keep produce fresh longer, but dirt and pesticide residues can get trapped underneath. Studies have found that American consumers are exposed to toxic chemicals known as persistent organic pollutants as many as 70 times a day. POP exposure has been associated with immune system suppression, nervous and hormonal system disorders, reproductive system damage, and various cancers, including breast cancer. I don’t know about you but I’d rather pass on the paraffin. Snacking on candle wax is overrated.

Breaking Vegetarian Weight Loss Myths to Lose Weight Effectively by Laura Ng

There had been some vegetarian weight loss myths floating around. But none is more serious than these 3 which I need to bring to your attention or you might end up becoming even fatter.

Vegetarian Weight Loss Myth 1 - Keeping Track of Your Caloric Intake

Some weight loss programs (even those for vegetarians) emphasize the importance of counting calories for every meal. By ensuring you burn more calories than you consume, you can lose weight initially. But monitoring your caloric intake for every meal can make your life hard. Imagine dragging a calorie counter logbook around with you, it takes the fun out of enjoying your food and you won't like it. Believe me, you'll give up monitoring faster than you think.

Tips to Overcome Myth: Just make sure you keep to 70% satiety level for your breakfast, lunch and dinner. And insert 2 snacks in between which will keep you 30 - 40% full only. Of course, eat a vegetarian weight loss diet packed with fiber. You'll lose weight all by itself.

Vegetarian Weight Loss Myth 2 - Eating Low-Carbohydrate Food

Depending on your daily physical activity level, you need energy or calories to carry out your tasks throughout the day. And your energy primarily comes from carbohydrates. You'll notice such low-carb diet often requires starving to reduce calorie input.

Limiting your carb intake actually triggers your body's natural reaction for starvation - it shocks your body to slow down metabolism, burn proteins (muscles) instead and store calories as fat for reserve because it "thinks" food will go out of supply very soon.

Starvation may not pose a risk in the short run. In fact, you may lose a few pounds initially since the diet "forces" your body to burn off calories. But note that your weight loses as a result of muscle loss, not fat, which isn't what you aim for.

In the long run, starving tends to rob too much energy off your body, leading to fatigue, undernourishment and subsequently serious health problems - so detrimental to your health that qualified doctors and certified dieticians strongly disapprove of such weight loss method.

Tips to Overcome Myth: There are good carbs and bad carbs. Eat foods high in complex-carb (good carb) and you'll gain a steady stream of energy over longer period to keep you going without starving.

Vegetarian Weight Loss Myth 3 - Lose Weight without Exercising

No pain, no gain. If you want to burn more fat and lose more weight, you got to increase your metabolism by exercising. Simple logic - when you exercise, your body requires more energy, which then stimulates your metabolism to burn more calories (or even fat) to supply it.

No doubt you can lose weight by simply eating right. But adding exercise in will help you achieve your vegetarian weight loss goal faster, at the same time, help to keep you fit and healthy so you can live longer and accomplish more than ever.

Tips to Overcome Myth: Pile up on veggies, fruits and wholegrain. Containing low calories and fat, they pump your body full of fiber, vitamins and minerals. Choose complex, nutrient dense carbs like grains, wholemeal bread or brown rice that leave you feeling full for longer time. Split your 3 meals into 4 - 5 smaller ones each day. Exercise and exercise.

Now you know how to deal with these vegetarian weight loss myths. Share with your fellow vegetarians to help them lose weight safely and healthily too.

Coconut Oil Vs Coconut Milk by Laura Ng

What are the differences between coconut oil and coconut milk in terms of health benefits? How are they made that causes the difference?

To make coconut milk, you just add water to coconut cream concentrate (which you obtained from pressing fresh coconut meat) and mix them. When coconut cream dilutes, you get coconut milk. Since coconut milk is made from coconut cream, it's still considered a whole coconut as it contains all the nutrients that a coconut provides such as its natural sugar (carbohydrate), protein, oil (fat) etc.

What about coconut oil? Although you extract coconut oil from fresh coconut meat too, only the fat content is retained. Hence, you'll see virgin coconut oil having zero carbohydrate (no sugar) and zero protein on its label.

Does it mean you're getting fewer nutrients from coconut oil than coconut milk? In a way, yes. But coconut oil contains much denser medium-chain fatty acid (MCFA) and the healthful lauric acid (that can also be found in mother's milk) which promote excellent health benefits for us. You can easily obtain your carbohydrate and protein intake from many other plant food sources. So, I don't see much issue with consuming only coconut oil.

But of course, I do recommend that you try to add coconut milk wherever possible if you feel you prefer coconut milk to its oil concentrate. For me, I take coconut oil more often than coconut milk or cream - I only use coconut cream / milk in cooking especially my favorite curry and few other select dishes, whereas I add the oil to my daily meal intake (I add it in my drinks and smoothie also) as well as using it in baking, stir-frying or sauteing. I also apply coconut oil on my skin every morning and night for facial and skin care.

In other words, coconut oil is more versatile - it allows you to use in various ways more than you can do with coconut milk (you can't apply coconut milk on your skin and leave it overnight while you sleep, its mild sweetness may attract ants).

In a nutshell, you get additional carbohydrate, protein and other nutrients from coconut milk, but you're getting an abundant supply of other fat-soluble nutrients and more health-boosting MCFA and lauric acid from coconut oil concentrate. By the way, some people are allergic to coconut milk but not the oil. So, which would you choose?

Different Methods Of Getting New Clients For Dentists In Toronto by Jim Peterson

Let's face it. A dental clinic is not the most sought after medical office in the world. Just ask a child if he wants to visit his dentist and you get a resounding no, coupled with an ear-shattering wail for an answer. You may even get the same answer from someone not so young.

If you're a dentist and you want your practice to grow, then perhaps you need some good promotional techniques. You might want to take your cue from a Toronto dentist. Why, you might ask. Well, over the years, Toronto dentistry has seen a tremendous boost in their practice. That's because more and more patients, even young ones, are starting to take notice of these dental clinics.

That goes without saying that residents of Toronto have always been concerned about their oral health. However, if you are a Toronto dentist, then you would agree that people are now more attuned and in the know of the many different ways dental clinics in Toronto operate. This is partly because of the different methods being acquired by dental clinics in Toronto to get new patients.

One effective way that has helped boost Toronto dentistry is web promotion. Web promotion for dental clinics all over Toronto is so widespread. Almost all dental clinics there have their own websites where they give a heads up about the services they offer with a brief explanation of each procedure. Patients can even set up appointments through these websites.

Web promotion for dental clinics have indeed vastly improved and advertised Toronto dentistry. What dentists basically do is have their websites listed in a specialized online dental directory. New patients looking for a capable Toronto dentist just need to log in to their computers, access an online dental directory and search for a Toronto dentist near his area. Upon accessing the website of the clinic of his choice, he can then start browsing the site and even schedule an appointment.

Promoting your dental clinic by means of a flyer or a newspaper advertisement is good. However, the whole of Toronto dentistry have proven that web promotion for dental clinics is one of the most cost effective and efficient ways of getting new clients because once a patient accesses your website and sees how easy it is to sign up for your practice, he can go about the whole process from the comfort of his own home. He wouldn't have to personally go to your dental clinic and wait in line for hours. He can simply drop by your clinic on the exact date and time of his appointment.

So if you're a practicing Toronto dentist, you might want to look into web promotion for your dental clinic.

Vegetarian Weight Loss Diet by Laura Ng

What constitutes an effective vegetarian weight loss diet? It's not just about the ingredients inside the diet that help you lose weight, but also the number of meals you should eat in a day.

I recommend five meals a day as a complete vegetarian weight loss diet in which two snacks are slotted in between each pair of main meals. Let's take a look at a free sample diet so you can get a better idea of what I'm talking about.

Vegetarian Weight Loss Diet - Meal Set 1

Breakfast: Rolled oats soaked in unsweetened apple juice, sprinkled with strawberries, blueberries and pine nuts. Boost your power meal with a veggie smoothie made from one celery stalk, one pear and two tomatoes added with virgin coconut oil and milled flax.

Morning Snack: Mixed fresh fruits containing honeydew, dragon fruit and kiwi.

Vegetarian Weight Loss Diet - Meal Set 2

Lunch: Portobello mushroom burger. Prepare one pan-seared Portobello mushroom (of 10 cm or 4 inches in diameter). Top the mushroom with shredded julienne cucumbers, shredded beet, alfalfa sprouts and juicy cherry tomatoes. And then sandwich this filling between two slices of wholegrain breads. You can spice up the burger with curried lentils sauce. Pair this mouthwatering veggie burger with a glass of unsweetened organic oat milk.

Afternoon Snack: Mixture of dried cranberries, cashew nuts, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, macadamia nuts and almond nuts.

Vegetarian Weight Loss Diet - Meal Set 3

Dinner: Rainbow salad. Mix together chopped apple, sliced green, red and orange bell peppers, shredded beet, butterhead lettuce, some dried fruits and your favorite pasta cooked al dente. For dressing, I recommend mixing two tablespoons of virgin coconut oil with one tablespoon of protein powder and one teaspoon of lemon juice.

Notice that meal sets 1 and 2 each comes with a snack but not meal set 3. Your metabolism tends to run slower at night. So, you don't need additional snack to power you up. Since your dinner is packed with fiber, it should last you till the following morning without you having to take any supper.

Now you've gotten a free sample of my vegetarian weight loss diet. But you should avoid eating the same old stuff or you can easily hit a weight loss plateau, which happens to many overweight vegetarians. Also, the way you eat your diet plays a vital role in losing weight too. That's why you need a proper vegetarian weight loss plan which includes practical yet healthy dieting tips that you can apply easily and get lasting results without rebound effect.

Use A Medical CRM System To Exchange Information Between Several Medical Offices by Jim Peterson

Technology helps us streamline our days and all we have to do is get informed on those discoveries that may actually simplify our lives and boost our businesses.

We are here to talk about healthcare service providers, whose profession can be rather tough if we consider all the people they have to visit everyday, all the patient records they have to fill in and the appointments they are asked to attend. With regard to patient visits, technology can not really do that much to help doctors, but it can, on the other hand, reduce their stress and save the whole medical practice a great deal of time.

The solution is the so-called medical CRM system, which enables the main clinic to exchange data and communicate with its branches in an innovative, secure and easy way. In fact, before switching to medical web forms and medical CRM solutions, doctors had to work with paper documents and fill in never-ending Excel sheets to keep the core clinic up-to-date about the branch monthly work flow.

Needless to say that these Excel forms, being composed of dozens of columns and rows, took health care service providers a lot of time which, on the other hand, could be invested in more fruitful and useful activities, such as patient care. Moreover, the main clinic could not receive regular notifications from the other medical offices and this fact resulted into a counter-productive lack of synergy and communication.

Fortunately for all doctors and medical offices, the medical CRM system offers unquestioned benefits that everybody can take advantage of. In fact, by filling brief and simple medical web forms, all medical offices will be able to exchange information and data whenever they like, so that they may finally synchronize and run their medical business without falling into those common human errors, which cause stress and waste precious time.

Medical CRM users will find this system very easy: be it everyday, once a week or once a month, doctors will have to log into AssistMedic, fill the pre-set medical web forms, entering all the requested patient's personal data and healthcare information (name , surname, social security number, bills...); at that point, the staff at the main medical office will immediately receive an email or SMS to let them know a new report has just been submitted from one of the other medical offices.

Now, as we all know, healthcare information is very delicate and private, for it is something everybody wishes to keep for themselves, and making sure that our healthcare information does not fall into the wrong hands when transmitted over the Internet to the other medical offices is something medical CRM developers have always been very concerned about.

That is why the automated medical receptionist has been specifically designed to keep all data secure and quickly transfer medical web forms containing sensitive medical information to other medical offices.

Fitness Training: 6 Food Additives You Need to Know by Anders N W Lindgreen

Food additives should really be renamed food modifiers, because additive suggests the addition of something positive. Yes, they do enhance colour, taste and preservation - but is that all they do and how do they actually do it? Chemically altered food products are as questionable as other chemical treatments, but since many of them have not been around for that long – and seem to have minimal immediate effects on us – we keep using them while knowing little of the long-term effects. Well, on humans that is, because there has been animal trials, and whether you oppose animal trials or not, the results may give us an indication on what’s in store for us. And if you are serious about your fitness training you know to put much emphasis on what you actually put into your body and its quality.

Here are 6 food additives to look out for:

1. Sodium Nitrate

It’s a preservative used in meat that also enhances taste and colour. Studies have linked sodium nitrate to various types of cancer and it is considered especially dangerous under high-temperature cooking.

2. BHA and BHT

BHA and BHT is another preservative used in common household products to prevent the fats from going rancid. Like with sodium nitrate, the BHA and BHT structure may change during the food preservation process and may form into a dangerous compound in our bodies.

3. Propyl Gallate

Propyl Gallate also acts as a preservative for fats and oils and is often used in conjunction with BHA and BHT. Studies done on animals suggest that it may be linked to cancer.

4. Monosodium Glutamate

Enough with the preservatives, because this baby is a flavour enhancer used in salad dressings, chips, restaurant foods and quite often in Asian foods as well. MSG (for short) may cause migraine-like headaches and nausea in some people.

5. Aspartame

This sweetener is often seen in diet foods where it’s substituting the taste for whatever “unhealthiness” that was removed in the first place. Again, links have been made between this additive and cancer and there is also a special warning to people with the enzyme disorders phenylketonuria.

6. Acesulfame-K

This is one of the new artificial sweeteners around. It’s commonly used in soft drinks, baked goods and chewing gum. Some studies show that it’s linked to cancer in rats, but as with most additives – long-term data is limited.

To Ban or Not to Ban

That is indeed the question. While I can see the benefits in banning certain additives, one must consider the implications of doing such a thing. Since this would inevitably make companies lose money, is there a chance that they would bring forth an even less researched compound to use that may be even more dangerous than the last one? You see, if you lock away the beer from the teen, they might go for the liquor. It’s not a perfect metaphor but it suggests that banning additives may not be ideal.

What Can We Do

You can simply start by limiting the amount of processed foods you consume. Clearly no one will bring a cheat sheet to the supermarket to investigate everything they put in their trolley and what dodgy additives they may contain. That’s not realistic. But you can limit the intake or choose products that use natural preservatives, additives and flavouring only. It’s not perfect but it’s doable and it’s a start. We are basically going for food products with very little human intervention, rather than the opposite.

Most Effective Vegetarian Weight Loss Solution for Overweight Vegetarians by Laura Ng

Is there such thing as most effective weight loss solution for vegetarians? Yes, of course! I'm going to tell you what it is, where you can find it and how effective it is. You'll be amazed at its effectiveness and how close it is to you. Here we go.

When you feed your body cells with the essential nutrients they need, they'll help you manage your weight automatically - know exactly how much to burn as fuel, how much to store and how much to excrete.

Obviously, you don't eat healthily. Some overweight vegetarians thought by tossing out their sugar intake and that will be considered eating healthily. A real healthy meal comes from taking in whole natural plant-based foods rich in fiber, complex-carbohydrate and various other vital nutrients, such as fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, grains and seaweeds, etc.

These wholesome foods will provide a vegetarian body with the key nutrients it needs to perform optimally. And that is the most effective weight loss solution for you - the vegetarian.

However, do not fall into the trap of any vegetarian weight loss solutions that promise to help you lose 9 pounds in 11 days or 7 - 15 pounds in one week or lose 30 pounds in 30 days sort of stuff.

These products main purpose is to help you lose weight - you'll lose more water mass initially which makes you lose weight as a whole, but which in fact your body fat content remains intact. Remember, your goal is to get rid of the ugly fat, not water.

Also, when you can only stick to just that list of food (they'll restrict your food variety), very soon your body will respond negatively due to nutritional deprivation, which in turn will make you give up on them for the sake of good health. Of course, if you force yourself to stick to them, your body ends up suffering more damages as a result.

Worse is, once you stop them, your weight will quickly bounce back. Besides, rapid weight loss can result in loose skin which will make you look even worse than before you lose the weight.

Your best bet would be - learn the healthy vegetarian way to lose weight - eat nutritiously and keep an active vegetarian lifestyle. If you do that, you'll not get any embarrassing side effects like loose, saggy skin, yet get to reduce to the shape you desire and get to keep your health at its tiptop condition forever.

Now you know the most effective vegetarian weight loss solution, what are you waiting for? Start doing it now.

Corporate Health: 10 Stress Relieving Techniques by Anders N W Lindgreen

Print off these techniques or email them through to your employees or colleagues in order to improve the corporate health score in your business.

1. Breathing Exercises

Sit, stand or lie down relaxed. Slowly inhale through your nose while counting to five in your head and then exhale through your mouth while counting to eight. Do this five to ten times to relieve tension or for several minutes as one form of meditation.

2. Physical Exercise

Not only will it allow you to become more physically fit, but it will also distract your attention away from stressful things and give you a chance to let it all out. After at least 20 min of intense exercise your body will release endorphins, which makes you feel happy.

3. Listening

Shutting your eyes and focusing on every single sound you can hear is a great way to shift your attention and allowing yourself to relax. Avoids noisy areas. This is also a great technique if you find it hard to fall asleep. Just open up your bedroom window, close your eyes and pay attention. It sure beats counting sheep!

4. Guided Relaxation

Listening to a relaxation-cd that guides you through vivid visualisations and so-called progressive muscle relaxation can be a great way to cope with stress. It can be done just about anywhere.

5. Time Management

Take 5-10 minutes and write down your most critical tasks for the day. Once you have them give them all a time frame (10 min, 30 min, 45 min) and prioritise according to importance. Usually the tasks you put off are what you really should be finishing first. Try it and you just might find better time management to be invaluable in reducing work related stress!

6. Sex

Having sex is one of the best stress and tension reducers there are, and it’s fun too!

7. Playing Music

Choose music that gives you a really positive feel with a slow to medium tempo. Avoid music that is too fast or frenetic as it may have the opposite effect. It is time to tune in!

8. Meditation

When you meditate, your brain enters an area of functioning that is similar to sleep, but also some added benefits you can’t achieve otherwise, including the release of certain health promoting hormones. Learning to mentally focus on nothingness keeps your mind from working overtime and increasing your stress levels.

9. Vitamins and Antioxidants

A multivitamin and antioxidant supplement can successfully cover your deficiencies in not only stress related vitamins, but the entire spectrum that your body require.

10. Sleep

Sleep helps us cope with stress, helps to repair our body, and improves our memory and even assists in controlling our body weight. A good night’s sleep for an adult should consist of 7-9 h of uninterrupted sleep. Not sleeping actually adds to your stress.

Proven Tips for Overweight Vegetarians to Lose Weight the Vegetarian Way by Laura Ng

I've worked with quite a number of overweight vegetarians and help them lose weight vegetarian style effectively. My method is very simple. Find out the causes of your overweight problem and then work reverse to counteract the effect. Simply put, if there are things you're doing to gain weight, there must be things you can do to lose back the weight again. Let's go identify what exactly triggers your weight gain and turn you into an overweight vegetarian. Then from there, we'll apply the right cure to your fat problem, and lose weight vegetarian easily and safely.

1. Have You Been Eating Lots of Sweetened Food?

Most sweetened foods are created with refined sugar because it's cheap. Your body will need to use up 27 key nutrients (calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamin B1, B2 etc) just to digest this little white devil. These 27 nutrients are actually meant to keep your metabolism functioning properly so as to help you maintain your weight. That's why those who include lots of high-sugar food in their vegetarian diet tend to have their midsection grow unstoppably.

Tip: Substitute with vegetarian foods made from unrefined sugar since it contains useful minerals, unlike simple sugar which carries nothing good for you but calories. However, control your intake even though it's unrefined because unrefined sugar also carries high calories.

2. Did You Eat Plenty of Vegetables?

I've seen overweight vegetarians eating fruits, nuts and seeds and other whole grain foods, except vegetables. They don't eat vegetables probably because they don't like its bland taste and texture. No doubt these people lose weight vegetarian initially, but they soon reach a weight loss plateau for not getting a full spectrum of nutrients in their vegetarian diets.

Tip: Include vegetables by blending with fruits into smoothies for easier consumption. Make it a 2:3 (vegetable to fruit) ratio.

3. Have You Been Eating Textured Vegetable Protein (TVP)?

TVP is helpful in transitioning to a full vegetarian. However, ingesting too much can increase your total caloric intake because most TVP foods are infused with simple sugar, sodium and bad saturated fat.

Tip: Try to phase out your TVP one by one and increase your whole food intake like fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds, legumes, whole grains etc.

These are just the 3 common fattening causes for most overweight vegetarians. In a nutshell, to lose weight vegetarian effectively, you must control your calorie intake and boost your metabolism. Once you have these 2 elements in place, you can easily write your name off the "Overweight Vegetarian Club".

Why I Choose to Live a Vegan Lifestyle by S. Ali Myers

First, let me put this out there. I am using the word vegan to illustrate a point. I have more of a veganesque diet. Something like 95% vegan. I eat fish about once every two weeks. May have a milkshake or "real" chocolate every once in a while. Some of the faux meats I eat may have some milk ingredients (though really nothing significant). Basically, I'm not one of them strict vegans who frown upon anybody touching animal products.

Now that I got that out of the way.....

My family, when I was growing up, consumed the average "Black" Standard American Diet. Fried chicken, pork chops, fried fish, pig's feet, chitterlings and so on. There was no meal where meat (including fish & chicken) was not present. This is not rare in the U.S. so this is not hard to believe. I just want to show how my view is not a result of upbringing but just a simple practice of looking, listening and observing. Or paying attention to nature and its laws.

Why do I subscribe to a vegan diet? A better question would be "why not?" I have molars that are flat. Looking at the meat-eating animals, it's hard not to notice their very sharp teeth. Maybe they have those teeth so they can rip and tear into flesh. They also don't chew they way I do. They chomp, rip and tear while I am more of a grinder. Actually, I eat my food like a horse. Bite then grind. Stallions even have incisors. Do horses eat meat? It easy to see that my teeth are better built for chewing than ripping flesh.

I always ate my meats cooked. But, it's obvious that the carnivorous animals eat their meats raw. I'm certainly not planning on capturing a cow, slaughtering it, then proceeding to feast upon its decaying carcass. No haps! I must cook it. But, it seems more practical to eat a fruit or vegetable that doesn't even need heat. Is it a coincidence that fruits and vegetables grow naturally and I do not have to harm a living soul to obtain my nutritional needs?

There's been too many times that I can count when I ate so much meat that my stomach hurt. Actually it doesn't take too much to cause the pain. My gastric acid doesn't break down the animal flesh like it does natural foods. Carnivores have different stomach acids, that's why they can eat fur, nails and other stuff that I wouldn't. If I was wired to eat animals then why do I not have the same type of stomach acids as carnivorous animals?

Vegetarians live longer and are less prone to diseases. This is an example of cause and effect. Eat less meat, live longer and feel better. That really makes me question why I ever thought meat was the way to go.

Being a heavy meat-eater for the better part of my life and now living a vegan lifestyle, I feel better now. You truly are what you eat and eating soul-filled animals will have a detrimental effect on you. When the animal is stressed from their living conditions, you eat that stress. Whatever the animal feels, eats, and is exposed to, you assume it all. I am able to think clearer because I do not have those unwanted, external, non-organic feelings. Combine this holistic approach with meditation and other chakra opening practices, anyone can achieve enlightenment.

I made the choice for myself to eat the way that I do. It makes holistic sense and common sense. My mind, body and soul is alive so I must eat live, organic foods. No dead animal can nourish my holistic system. Why do I choose to live a vegan lifestyle? Because I choose life!

Peace Peace,

Sugar, The Reason For Dizziness? by Dr. A. R. Scopelliti

Diabetes is becoming more common and more of a medical problem than ever before. I am specifically referring to type 2 diabetes, which is perpetually brought on entirely by ones eating practice. This is why it has coined the designation “adult onset diabetes”. The “juvenile” type, or type 1, occurs at an early age for other reasons entirely. So let’s discuss type 2, as that is the big issue and since it is entirely within your control to remedy. Quite simply, type 2 diabetes occurs associated with obesity. For each pound of “extra” weight one carries, risk of diabetes goes up, exponentially. As an example, someone 30 pounds overweight has a 4000% increase risk in becoming diabetic. (This is not a typo).

Heart disease and peripheral artery disease are the biggest complications that people face with uncontrolled diabetes. Approximately 65% of death from diabetes is from heart disease and stroke. Peripheral artery damage or nerve damage, also from uncontrolled diabetes, can cause foot problems that can lead to amputations. More than 60% of leg and foot amputations not related to an injury are due to diabetes. Diabetes is the primary cause of blindness in the US. Other problems include glaucoma, cataracts and diabetic retinopathy. Studies show that regular eye exams and timely treatment of diabetes-related eye problems could prevent up to 90% of diabetes-related blindness. Recent studies correlate metabolic syndrome with marked increase in total fructose intake in the form of high-fructose corn syrup, beverage and table sugar. Metabolic syndrome is a name given to a cluster of risk factors including heart disease. If you learn to scrutinize labels, you will find that many products now contain high fructose corn syrup.

Dizziness, a common problem in and of itself, is often associated with deregulation of sugar. Sugar levels, both too high, and lowered, will lead to dizziness. Your body does a delicate balancing act trying to maintain as steady a level of blood sugar as possible. You can help this cause by maintaining a healthy diet that does not cause blood sugar levels to abruptly go through the roof, or alternatively, waiting all day to eat causing them to drop excessively. Additional information on healthy eating tips can be found on my website, linked below. Much of the dizziness which I see clinically is ether caused by or complicated by extreme changes in blood sugar levels.

Of equal importance is exercise. Humans were not meant to be sedentary-couch potatoes, which unfortunately, is how many Americans spend their day. Exercise should be undertaken at the highest level of your ability. If you are not sure of your ability, you should talk about it with your doctor.

Coconut Oil Skin Benefits by Laura Ng

Other than healing your health internally such as lowering your blood pressure, curing constipation, improving digestion, strengthening your kidney and liver, enhancing your immune system, burning more unwanted body fat and fighting various killer diseases including AIDS, coconut oil can also benefit you externally, as a skin care product.

Skin Benefit 1 - Smoothening Your Dry Flaky Skin

If you got dry flaky skin on your palm, once it cracks a few mm deep and blood oozes out, you'll cry for mercy, especially when it comes along with an itch.

My friend got it for 3 - 4 years and after learning about coconut oil's healing benefits, he rubs the oil on his palm every night before he sleeps. In only 3 days, the itch has gone and the crack closes up. Then in about 7 days, his normal fleshy palm returns with a smooth glow on the skin.

Coconut oil also benefits those with more serious skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, Candida and dermatitis. Try it, and you'll believe its healing power on skin.

Skin Benefit 2 - Healing Your Cracked Heels

As effective as on dry flaky skin, you need not waste money on those commercial water-based / chemical-laden cream specially developed to fight cracked heels.

Just apply and rub coconut oil on the affected area until it absorbs into the skin, and your heels should heal in 7 days or less. Best part is, it's all natural and you get all fat-soluble nutrients and antioxidants absorbed into your body via your skin just like that.

Skin Benefit 3 - Clearing Your Acnes

Apply only a light coating of virgin coconut oil and massage it on the affected area every night after cleaning your face and then leave it overnight till next morning. But do take note, some people may get more breakouts (when using coconut oil for acne treatment) within a week and last for a few weeks before they dry up and give you an almost flawless complexion.

Bear in mind not to use any other types of coconut oil (refined coconut oil will clog your pores) except virgin coconut oil for your skin care benefits.

Skin Benefit 4 - Making You Look Younger

You don't need the extravagant SK-II or any other super expensive skin care products just to combat wrinkle and look youthful. Coconut oil works just as well. Here's how to reduce your wrinkle on the face:

- Wash your face and dry it.

- Put a dab of coconut oil (to avoid getting greasy) and then rub your hands together until the oil spread out evenly on your hands.

- Massage your face with your oil-coated hands to help speed up the absorption of oil into your skin.

For best result, do it morning right after you wash your face and at night before bedtime. For better than best outcome, eat 1 - 3 tablespoons a day and you'll see a naturally smooth, shiny complexion over time.

Tip: If you eat 3 tablespoons a day, take one in morning, one in afternoon and one at night.

Skin Benefit 5 - Moisturizing Your Lips

In dry climate, your lips can crack easily. Prepare a small handy bottle of coconut oil with you. Just dip your finger into the oil and then smear it on your lips just like a lady applying lipstick. The moisturizing effect lasts as long as a quality lip balm. Best, you can eat it along with food without fearing ingesting "don't know what" chemicals as in the case of using commercial lip balm.

In fact, you'll achieve better skin benefits with regular coconut oil consumption, rather than solely using it topically.

Vegetarian Weight Loss Tips by Laura Ng

To lose weight effectively as a vegetarian, you need proven vegetarian weight loss tips which will take you from where you are, to where you want to be. Stop dwelling in any crash methods that can impact your health. Follow what I'm going to show you, and you'll lose weight and gain health at the same time, the vegetarian way.

Vegetarian Weight Loss Tips Part 1 - Vegetarian Weight Loss Meal Plan

You first need an effective meal plan for vegetarian weight loss. You should make your meal plan such that it comprises 5 meals a day - breakfast, lunch and dinner plus 2 snacks.

You'll slot each snack in between the main meals in such a way - a morning snack in between breakfast and lunch. Same goes for afternoon snack. Maintain a 2- 3 hours interval between meals.

Fiber should cover about 40 - 60% of each of your main meals. Fiber makes you feel full easily. It also slows down the food digestion so you won't feel hungry so easily and start craving for more food that may ruin your vegetarian weight loss goal.

Last but not least in this part of vegetarian weight loss tips, the snack should fill you up to about 30 - 40% and your main meal should make you feel 70% full only. Try to include at least 80 - 90 % whole natural foods in your vegetarian weight loss diet. Cut back on your processed vegetarian food intake which carries high sugar, high sodium and high bad saturated fat plus other chemical additives for flavor and color enhancement.

Vegetarian Weight Loss Tips Part 2 - Daily Activities

Apart from eating, these activities play an important role in helping to keep you metabolically active, so you'll burn more fat and lose more weight as a vegetarian with half the effort and time.

Sleep - When you sleep well, your metabolism will run optimally. How many hours of sleep you need depends on your body condition. You should know better than anyone else. Not necessary to stick to 8 hours per day.

Drink - Inadequate water consumption can cause more toxins to amass in your fat cells, making it difficult for your body to extract the fat from your fat stores for energy conversion. You need sufficient water supply to allow for proper detox and keep your metabolism active throughout the day.

Excrete - This is one of the most important vegetarian weight loss tips that you should preferably do 1 - 2 times daily. You'll improve your bowel movements automatically once you've eaten nutritiously with a fiber-packed diet, sleep well and attain good hydration.

Vegetarian Weight Loss Tips Part 3 - Exercise

You can't escape from the "calories-in, calories-out" basic even though you're a vegetarian. Meaning, if you want to expend more calories than you consume to achieve vegetarian weight loss, other than controlling your calorie intake via your vegetarian weight loss diet, exercise is the next power move you should take to lose weight effectively as a vegetarian.

Any exercise will do the trick. But to lose more fat in the shortest time possible, do interval training. For example, when you cycle, you'll first cycle at 10 mph (16 km/h) for one minute. On next minute, you'll speed up to achieve a 15 mph (24 km/h) and then drop back to 10 mph for another minute and so forth. You can perform interval training basically on any exercises. This type of low-high-low intensity workout pattern will help you burn more fat and boost your metabolism up to 24 hours even after your exercise bout.

Are you clear with these vegetarian weight loss tips? Include them now in your vegetarian weight loss diet plan. You'll lose fat and gain health as what I've promised you early on.

Different Ways To Promote A Dental Clinic by Jim Peterson

No one can deny that the Internet has become a parallel world and, just like the one we live in, it presents both benefits and threats. One thing's for sure: whenever they are given the possibility, people prefer to do things online, for they must not get dressed, get out of home, drive through the traffic and wait in line to do something. E-commerce websites are, in fact, multiplying day after day, for their creators have sensed the big changes we are going through.

If you run your own dental clinic in Toronto, for instance, it means your business highly depends on your daily patient-flow. But how do you find new patients? Do they come to you on their own or have you planned some kind of promotion?

Provided that everybody today is a professional browser, you should seriously consider starting an online promotion in order to get new patients.

In fact, if someone needs to register with a dental practice, they will have to head to the office to speak to the receptionist. Nobody ever complains for they got used to waiting in line, but be sure that a lot of people would gladly do without it. So, what if you offered people the possibility to skip this long and annoying process and let new patients sign up with your practice directly from your website.

Believe it or not, it is not a dream and it is very likely that your competitors have already executed the aforementioned strategies. That is one more reason for you to start planning a smart online promotion of your dental clinic, aimed to find new patients and have them sign up with you.

To achieve this goal, you will need a catchy website which explains all the additional services that you offers, such as, for instance, online appointment schedulers and medical appointment reminders.

You may even act clever, planning the promotion of dental care among young people, who should be your new target audience, for they are the ones who will appreciate the most the fact that you let them sign up as new patients from your website.

Nowadays, in fact, there is not a person between 20-50 years old, who does not own a mobile phone, a smart phone or a personal computer. They all know how to use the Internet, shop online and it is highly likely that there is someone out there, who is looking for a dental clinic in their area right now. Thanks to a well-built website and an effective online promotion, you may appear among that someone's results and find new patients everyday, without making any efforts.

So don't waste another minute: be up-to-date, build a website which explains the main features of your dental clinic and get new patients, by letting them sign up through a simple web form.

Vegetarian Weight Loss Diet Plan - Sure - Fire Fat Loss Formula for Vegetarians by Laura Ng

It's not so nice to grow fat as a vegetarian. You're supposed to show to the world that leading a vegetarian lifestyle is healthy and so you guys should come join me eating vegetarian to stop animal killing and save the planet from global warming. However, there are several weight gain triggers that can strike you silently without your knowledge. Boom, all of a sudden, you realize you've unknowingly become an overweight vegetarian.

In fact, weight gain doesn't come overnight unless you suddenly experience a serious hormonal imbalance or terrible metabolic disorder. This is the type of people (less than 1% of the world population) who can only lose weight via surgery or undergo special medications.

Normal people like you and me, who when eat the wrong way gain weight and when eat right will lose weight, can be cured with this proven vegetarian weight loss diet plan, which is:

Vegetarian weight loss diet + full bodyweight fat-burning workouts

That's it. This is a winning fat loss formula for vegetarians regardless of what triggers your weight gain (except for that less than 1 % I just mentioned earlier). So, what's inside the vegetarian weight loss diet and the fat-burning workouts that make them so effective? Let me show you a sample of what you should eat for a day and what exercises to do to give you a better picture.

Vegetarian Weight Loss Diet

In your vegetarian weight loss diet plan, you should prepare at least 5 meals to help sustain your activities throughout the day. More meals but having smaller portion will help kick start your metabolism to burn more calories. Here's a sample meal plan for a day.

Breakfast: Rolled oats sprinkled with your favorite berries, unsweetened apple juice, pistachio nuts and sesame seeds. To prepare for a hard day's work, you can boost the power in your morning meal with a veggie smoothie blended from 1 celery stalk, 2 tomatoes, cranberries, milled flaxseeds and virgin coconut oil.

Morning Snack: Mixed fresh fruits containing watermelon, strawberries, honeydew and grapefruit.

Lunch: Portobello mushroom burger. One pan-seared Portobello mushroom (10 cm or 4 inches in diameter) topped with julienne cucumbers and juicy cherry tomatoes. Add some alfalfa sprouts to increase the vegetable ratio for greater fullness, then flavored with vegan mayonnaise or vegan basil pesto or curried lentils sauce. Sandwich this delicious filling between 2 slices of wholegrain breads. Pair this mouthwatering veggie burger with a glass of unsweetened oat or almond milk.

(You can easily prepare these burger ingredients in advance before leaving for work or do it the night before. Then store the mushrooms, raw veggies and sauce separately in air-tight containers to avoid them from turning soggy. Do the stuffing when you're ready to eat.)

Afternoon Snack: Mixed nuts or mixed fruits that'll fill you up to about 30 - 40%.

Dinner: Rainbow salad made from mixing shredded apple, shredded beets, firm tofu, lettuce, dried apricots, dried cranberries and your favorite pasta cooked al dente. Mix 2 tablespoons of virgin coconut oil with 1 tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice as dressing.

Tip: You're free to alter the ingredients used and their quantity in this meal plan to suit your palate and needs to obtain best results.

The whole idea of this meal plan is to keep your stomach occupied so it'll not request for more food. Any surge in activities will lead your body to go to your fat stores to extract energy for use. You burn fat off your fat deposits as a result.

That's how people lose weight due to true fat loss, not water loss. And as a vegetarian, you'll probably experience quicker fat loss effect since you got less toxins jammed inside your fat cells.

Fat-Burning Workouts for Vegetarian Weight Loss

Remember, you should always eat nutritiously in order to have plenty of energy to fuel your exercises. That's the reason why your vegetarian weight loss meal plan is covered with so much quality ingredients. And you should follow that pattern but mixed with different ingredients to avoid boredom and hitting a weight loss plateau.

So now, what exercises and what's the best time to execute the workouts to maximize fat loss?

Best time is morning before 7 A.M. And you need not perform 30 minutes or 1 hour to burn more fat. Just a 10 - 15-minute workout will do. What kind of exercises?

Bodyweight exercises such as pushups, bicycle crunch, lying hip extension, spiderman climbs, step-up, prisoner forward lunge, prisoner squat, jumping jacks. These workouts are extremely powerful on overall body fat loss. You want to lose belly fat, burn thighs fat, this is it!

There you have it, a sure-fire vegetarian weight loss diet plan that ANY vegetarian can succeed, only when you put it into full action.

Fitness Training: 3 Harsh Truths About Weight Loss That You Need to Know! by Anders N W Lindgreen

24 Months to a New Body

It is safe to say that you will never see a health magazine with this title, and still most transformations take 6, 12 or 24 months (or more!) to achieve. But that doesn’t sell. Media knows that anything else than exceptional, easy results in no more than four weeks will be rejected, and then they’d be out of business. It’s not their fault, not really; it’s just supply and demand. If we demanded better quality articles regarding fitness training and eating, they would give it to us, but we don’t. This charade means that most people begin their journey with false information, assuming that they’ll lose insane amounts in a very short time, and when they don’t, they get discouraged and may not try again for another year. This doesn’t mean that you can’t achieve great results in four weeks, you absolutely can! But if you have outrageous expectations brought on by the latest fad, you are setting yourself up for failure (and that’s often for the long-term too). So, realise it willtake time, BUT you CAN get there! And as long as you stay on track, those results will keep on coming, making you feel better and better about yourself every day.

Change is Hard (and your body fights it)

Anyone claiming change to be easy is dead wrong. It is not. Believing all the hype and assuming it will be and you’re in for a nasty surprise. Look, it is light-years away from being impossible, but if changing behaviours, habits and lifestyles were easy, I mean really easy, just about everyone would. And physiologically, your body will actually fight it. It loves to stay the same and any change will be resisted until your persist enough. That is why start-stop attempts rarely generate short or long-term results. The inconsistencies lead your body to doubt your intentions and it just sits where it’s comfortable. I can illustrate this easily by comparing the 30 second stretches you do after your workouts with having your arm in a sling for six weeks. Six weeks down the track with a little bit of stretching here and there will do little for your flexibility, but keep that arm in the same position for six weeks straight and your body will shorten up your muscles, as it assumes that is what you want. So, either you do or you don’t, anything in between and you might as well do nothing.

No Attempt is Better than a Weak Decision

Research tells us that most weight loss attempts (especially the extreme ones) will result in gaining back the lost weight PLUS an additional 15% over the long-term. Not only that, if the weight loss was done in a poor fashion, there is likely to be severe muscle loss involved as well. And when you gain that weight back, it will be little if any muscle. This is terrible as muscle mass increases the energy our body requires at rest and at activities and therefore helps us to maintain our weight. Without it, keeping the weight off is even harder. So, stay away from weak “maybe sorta’ kinda’” attempts and make a firm decision to change. If you don’t, you are probably better off not doing anything at all. I would pick standing still over two steps forward, three steps back. But trumping all of that is making your mind up and do it already! You will be so happy you did.

Vegetarian Weight Loss Myths & Tips to Truly Lose Weight as Vegetarian by Laura Ng

Does becoming a vegetarian guarantee you weight loss? Let's run through some of the weight loss myths so common that many people thought vegetarian diet is the best way to lose weight. And then I'll show you what you can do to effectively lose weight without sacrificing your vegetarian lifestyle. It's gonna be easy. Don't worry.

Vegetarian Weight Loss Myth #1 - You'll Lose Weight by Going Vegetarian

Are you thinking like most people when you first became a vegetarian? Look at your belly, buttocks and thighs now, is it true? Did you become even fatter than before? Has your cellulite become more obvious? Some meat-eaters are overweight, but after they go vegetarian, their size blow up even further. Hence, whether you're a vegetarian or not doesn't mean you'll lose weight effectively, which brings us to the next myth.

Vegetarian Weight Loss Myth #2 - You Can Eat All You Want because Vegetarian Foods Carry Low Calories

If this is true, then Myth #1 would become true already. It all depends on what you eat. If you eat pre-packaged processed vegetarian food infused with sugar, sodium and bad saturated fats, how could you expect not to have your belly fat popped out?

Vegetarian Weight Loss Myth #3 - A Vegetarian Diet is Healthier than a Meat-laced Diet

Honestly, you won't get any worse by eating a vegetarian diet than continuing with the bacteria-laden, toxin-loaded meat diet to lose weight. However, you should not take it for granted that any vegetarian diets are healthy. Because they aren't healthy, they can wreck your body and cause metabolic disorder, that's why you gain weight easily!

Facts about the Vegetarian Weight Loss Myths

It WAS true that eating vegetarian diet tends to promote weight loss. But not anymore with so many convenient vegetarian food stores and stalls sprouting up hyping up the benefits of vegetarian diet, when they're in fact selling fatty vegetarian foods so high in sugar, fat and sodium that are too toxic for your body to take it.

My advice for you is, make your food choices wisely. Avoid processed foods as much as you can. But if you can't avoid due to the nature of your job or your lifestyle doesn't allow it, then try to buy processed foods containing as low sodium and sugar as you can.

The best way to lose weight as vegetarian is prepare your own vegetarian meals, and eat lots of whole foods containing nutritional value in their best natural form such as fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts and seeds, whole grains, legumes etc. Oh, and don't forget to engage in exercises at least 3 times a week.

In a nutshell, eat whole natural vegetarian foods and move more, and you'll lose weight the vegetarian way easily.
