Job Edition: Labor Jobs

We have all been in a position of having to do manual labor before, right? If you haven't then you, fortunately, have started ahead of most of the world. For those of us that are plopped down in our labor, retail filled, stand on your feet for 8-12 hours a day kind of jobs, this is for you guys! It is hard enough to diet let alone diet during odd hours or dieting during a job where you are exhausted after working. Well, we are going to look at what you can do to combat the labor bug.

1. Stop Splurging
The first point is to stop splurging as if food is leaving the planet! I have been in retail many a job and one thing I can say is that I was dang hungry when it came to eating after my shift. It was as if I ate everything in sight. Eat a moderate size meal and walk away from your kitchen.

2. Eat a Salad
Eating a salad will ensure that you consume less calories than you burned off in the day running around all the time. Salads are full of vitamins, minerals, and fiber that is essential for your diet and weight loss.

3. Work Hard
This one might be one of those, "Duh" moments, but there are people that just don't work hard at their jobs or just refuse to. Work hard and burn those calories. You will be glad you did.

4. Protein Shake
Protein shakes are not exclusively for bodybuilders or weightlifters. They are for anyone that has bad muscle aches. Protein are the strands that your muscles are composed of. Adding a protein shake to your diet every other day will ensure that you body bounces back quicker and is more resilient.

5. Sleep
Sleep is the single most essential thing to any diet. Instead of watching TV until all hours of the evening, and then waking up early in the morning and feeling like you got run over by a semi, go to bed early. Get adequate rest.

I hope that you have enjoyed this blog post! Please share with your friends and family. Have a great day guys!

Cookies...Tasty or Fatty?

Cookies are tasty trinkets laced with sugary delightful goodness. Cookies are savory, melt in your mouth, tidbits of sunshine that make your mouth and tongue want to dance. Some of you may have heard of the "Cookie Diet" and may have even tried it. While there were results, cookies that lack nutrition are not the answer. Let's take a look at how cookies are tasty and fatty.

1. Sugar
Sugar is the main ingredient in cookies. Sugar disables your immune system and is the leading cause of fat and obesity. Too much sugar is not good for your body.

2. Fat
Butter and oils are combined in cookies to make them taste good and go down smoothly. Buttery fat includes salt and raises cholesterol. Butter contains fats and margarine contains trans fats. Either way we are doomed if we eat cookies.

Are there really any benefits to cookies? Besides splurging and having something that tastes good, there really aren't any good benefits to cookies.

3. Cancer and Disease
Cookies can cause cancer and disease. Why is this you say? When you become obese you open yourself up to cancer and disease.

4. High Fructose Corn Syrup
High fructose corn syrup has quite an impact on blood pressure levels. The blood pressure skyrockets when we consume sweeteners. HFCS (High Fructose Corn Syrup) is an alternative to sugar and is used in unison with sugar to make snacks addictive and tasty.

We can see that cookies are tasty and fatty and are detrimental to society. Are we eating ourselves into oblivion? Cookies come in all shapes, sizes, and different levels of sugar content. Cookies are fatty and sugary and are bad for weight loss. You diet will suffer terribly by eating cookies. We have all eaten cookies. We don't eat them by the serving size, which seems to be two or three, we eat them by the sleeve full. Check out the video below to see what Brian Regan says about cookies! Can you relate?

Job Edition: Teachers and Professors

I was running one day thinking of what I wanted to give you guys next. Then it hit me! I thought that I would give you guys weight loss tips for each lazy job in the world. I mean, with all of the tasks you have to do at the office or at school, you really don't have time to work out and lose weight. Our Job Edition posts will chose a job and then give you the tips for weight loss. we go!

Our first Job Edition features a job that is very tedious where you sit and deal with a bunch of punk kids or adults that act like kids. This is our Teachers and Professors Edition. I have been in the same place because I'm a computer major in college. While I am on the other side of things, it is very similar to what the teachers and professors have to deal with, just at a less extreme level. Here are some tips to get you off the ground.

1. Stick to Fruits and Vegetables
Sticking to fruits and vegetables will ensure that you get the vitamins and minerals that you need while being a lower intake of fat. This will allow you to burn more fat than you take in.

2. Go for a Walk
Go for a walk during your lunch break. When you get a break or a lunch break, go for a walk and burn some calories off. We all know that even though it does burn small amounts of calories, it still adds up and can be beneficial.

3. Graze
I don't know if you have heard of grazing before. No, not the kind that cows do, although it can be similar. Grazing just means eating small amounts of food, a nibble here a nibble there, throughout your day to help space the calories out. Your students won't mind you grazing on a carrot stick or two.

4. Go to Bed Early
Going to bed early will ensure that your body is working efficiently and that you will be able to burn the calories. You may have to stay up late on some nights grading papers, but try to go to bed early.

Now that you have these tips, share them with your faculty members to help them lose weight as well! We all need a push to get going. You have your's! Now, go get 'em!

Holidays, Living Hell for Diets

The holidays are nearing very quickly and we need to go through the important information. Let's just admit it right now. Holidays are living hell for diets and weight loss. Are they not? I mean, we are downing the turkey, gravy, rolls, and butter as if earth is running out of it without regards to our diet! Are there ways around it? Yes! We are going to talk about how to get around gaining weight during the holidays. Let's go.

1. Cut Out the Excess Butter
I know that butter is one of those things that makes food taste indelibly terrific. There is a problem that smacks itself right into your face. Eating butter is like pasting fat onto your body. That is what you are doing to your body. Cut down a little bit on the butter. Do your rolls need half a stick of butter on them?

2. Keep the Sweets to a Low Roar
You have heard the expression, "I am going to keep it to a low roar" before. It is a simple concept. This expression can be put another way. "Everything in moderation," is another one. Eat your sweets in moderation. Eat ONE serving and then be done.

3. Eat Slow
We have often heard that it takes food 20 minutes for food to, "Hit bottom." If this is indeed true, then eat slow. Chew your food past when your normally do. Put smaller amounts of food onto your fork.

4. Use Smaller Plates
Did you know that the average plate in Europe and in the east is 30% smaller than our's in America? I wonder why they are skinnier than we are. Interesting, isn't it? I urge you to use smaller plates during Thanksgiving and Christmas. It will cause you to see exactly how much food you are eating. You will see that you are going to eat a large amount of food and that you should stop. 

I hope that you guys have a great week! Keep it up on your diets and weight loss!
