Healthy Diet, Weight Loss And Supplements

Healthy diet and weight loss do make sense. But what about supplements?

Can you use  supplements to lose weight  and still call it healthy? There is no simple answer to this but supplements can be of significant help when combined with a healthy diet.


For a great number of people it may be the chronic, long lasting lack of healthy, nutrient rich foods in their daily diet  that has started  the  imbalance leading to weight  problems.

Being overweight is becoming an epidemic in this country and indeed in most developed countries. Even China is being impacted. Children as young as eight years old are getting type 2 diabetes. Normally in the past, type 2 diabetes did not show up until people were at least in there late thirties or forties.

Type two diabetes is caused mainly by consuming more sugar, or foods that easily turn into sugar or glucose, than the body can easily process. When this happens on a daily basis, a person becomes overweight as a minimum, and quite often becomes diabetic.

For people who enjoy these types of foods, as many of us do, and have a hard time avoiding them, it can be a hard cycle to break. If a person is also overweight it becomes harder to get back to a healthy weight and better eating habits.

But not everybody may have brought weight problems on themselves through eating calorie rich and nutrient poor foods.

If you think that you use reasonably varied and balanced diet menu then there could be other reasons why you struggle with being overweight.

In such cases the first thing to do is to visit your doctor. Often there can be a medical reason why it is hard for someone to lose weight. An under active thyroid for instance can cause a person to gain weight. There are  thyroid health supplements  that can alleviate the problem.

Checking with your doctor is also a good idea, to make sure you are healthy, in case you would like to start an exercise program, or begin using one of the many weight loss supplements available to us today.

Daily Food Diary, Healthy Diet Weight Loss Key

Keeping a daily food diary is an essential activity for anyone
who is serious about starting and keeping a particular diet of
their choice whether it is a healthy diet for weight loss or
any weight loss diet.

Even if losing weight is not your goal, keeping a daily food
diary will be of great help in optimizing your food choices.

This activity doesn’t need to involve carrying a big book around
and obsessively leafing and looking through it to check that you
aren’t doing something wrong.

food diary keeping illustration tay-timer is a great tool for daily food diary keeping a pencil and paper are enought for keeping a food diary

A day-timer page or similar size of paper like an old style index
card and a pen or pencil will do the job for the day. If you are
more hi-tech you can use your preferred device to record your
daily menu.

The whole idea is to record everything including drinks and any
liquids consumed including coffee, tea, pop and water.
Most people have no idea as to how much water they actually
drink during the day. The same applies to other liquids and
to favorite snacks and treats.

Being as busy as we are, we tend to be oblivious to what we
put into our body. We are also less than keenly aware regarding
what we forget to give it. The majority of people are actually
dehydrated. The lack of proper nutrition in fast food is well
known. But being pressed for time has us consuming it more often
than we’d like.

Keeping a daily food diary will make us keenly aware of our food
and drink choices. It will give us a good indication of how close
we came to healthy eating diet or the diet we chose.
At the end of the day we’ll be able to see
how we’re doing. Then we can decide if we can improve our choices
the next day.

Thus we are in a position to clearly see what we can aim at avoiding
and what we’ll want to make sure to include. It doesn’t have to be
about counting calories at all. You can certainly do that if you wish.

It is quite possible that you are well aware of your food
and drink choices in general. That is very good. But even then
you may be surprised at what you’ll find by keeping a detailed record.

Many people find that when they write down everything they
consume it differs from what they thought they did, sometimes

one week of keeping a daily food diary will reveal a lot

So why not try it for at least a couple of weeks and then decide if you want to continue or not.
Even one week of keeping a daily food diary will reveal a lot
and will be of great help on your way to better food choices,
better nutrition and keeping or obtaining a healthy weight.

We keep track of many things in life that are related  to our jobs, to our relations or to our possessions. We are somehow reluctant to keep track of what has a great effect on our health. What we eat does matter. We all can do ourselves a great favor by keeping a daily food diary.

Effortless Rebounder Exercise-Achieve Weight Loss And Health

Walking is the best known exercise that requires the least amount of effort but there is yet another fun and easy to do exercise that is much less talked about.
The benefits it brings are huge. From eliminating undue stress, strengthening every cell in the body to shedding unwanted fat and weight.

This effortless exercise is a dream come true for all of us who struggle with lack of time to travel to a gym, lack of space to devote to complex and bulky exercise machines and quite frankly for those of us without the willingness to exert our bodies with strenuous exercise.

Healthy diet and weight loss will always be connected and a must for a long term sustained weight loss. And balanced diet menu should be a goal to achieve for any athlete. But whether you are an athlete needing to keep your body strong or a person who wants to lose weight or maintain it, there is a great exercise which will benefit everybody.

Rebounder Exercise

It requires a small tool or equipment which is generally known as mini trampoline, the proper name of which is a rebounder.  A small trampoline, or a rebounder is generally considered a fun devise for kids to jump on. Not everybody would think of it as being a very useful, easy to use and fun and effortless exercise enabling tool.

Before you dismiss it out of your mind and start looking for something else, please consider reading on until the end of this short article.

If rebounder exercise was a little more complicated or caused more discomfort it would probably be more popular. In a world of torturing, time consuming exercise programs the simplicity of the physical requirements you need to keep in shape will shock you.

Using a rebounder, benefits can be derived even by doing nothing but sitting on the rebounder while another person is jumping on it. This is very useful for incapacitated people to get their exercise just by being present.

For healthy people the ease of obtaining huge exercise benefits by doing next to nothing is stunning. Just by gently rocking up and down on the rebounder mat, without your feet ever leaving the mat surface, every muscle and every cell in your body will receive exercise which will benefit and strengthen them.

This is very exciting and significant. Instinctively and intuitively children know this without realizing it. They love to jump on a sofa or a bed just for fun.

What are the great benefits of this kind of rebounding exercise?

While vertically moving up and down there are three forces at play exerting pressure on every muscle and cell in our body and thus exercising them.
These forces are: the force of gravity, the force of acceleration  and the force of deceleration.

The common denominator of all exercises is opposition to the gravitational pull of the earth.

On a rebounder when moving up and down the 1G force which is there by just standing still will be increased by adding acceleration as you move up and by adding deceleration at the bottom of the bounce.

Even if your feet never leave the mat as you gently rock up and down the G force will thus be increased by 25 per cent. When you get beyond this incredibly gentle and effortless exercise and allow your feet to leave the mat the G force increase that your body will be exercised with will go up markedly.

Bouncing on a rebounder stresses and thus exercises every cell over and over about one hundred times per minute. Every cell will begin to adjust to a greater G force and in that manner will become stronger.

You may ask yourself why oppose gravity and thus exercise with only one part of your body, which happens when you do push ups, pull ups, leg lifts and so on, when you are able to oppose gravity increased by acceleration and deceleration with every part of your body.

You can exercise every part of your body simply by using a rebounder. This exercise will strengthen and condition everybody. From kids just starting to walk to hard working teenage athletes to the very cream and top of the athletic and sport world professionals.

To start with it won’t feel like exercise at all. It is great fun to do while listening to music. Do it just for the length of one song and you’ll benefit immensely already. Start slow and with short time intervals.

Gradually increase the time and jump height as you get stronger.

Effortless exercise can be yours and you will have a rebounder exercise fun.
