3 Benefits of Diets

Have you ever asked yourself, "What is the point of dieting?" Why should you diet? Are there any benefits to dieting? I have heard several, in fact, hundreds of thousands of benefits to dieting. I have chosen 3 benefits of diets in order to help you guys decide on whether you should diet or not. I hope to fully convince you guys that you need a diet and to help you guys see why it is a great idea to go on a diet.

1. Avoid Disease and Sickness
The first reason to diet or for diets is that you will be able to avoid disease and sickness. Diabetes, cancer, bloating, and the lowered immune system are all diseases and sicknesses that being overweight and obese causes. Diets are the automobile to take you from sick and obese to healthy.

2. Blood Pressure Decreases
Blood pressure decreases when you begin a diet. Losing weight while on a diet can and will lower your blood pressure. Blood pressure contributes to your heart and internal organs working harder than they should. Lowering your blood pressure will help your body to work more efficiently. Your body is like a machine. When your body runs with high blood pressure, its like running a machine that runs on gas on water. You need to lower the blood pressure in order to put the gas back into the machine.


3. Your Body Will Feel Better
When you are overweight, your body feels bogged down, slow, and very hard to move. An overweight body feels uncomfortable because of always sweating, sagging fat, and lots of other problems. If you go on a diet and lose weight, your body will feel better, will run more efficiently, and you can get rid of the extra fat that acts like extra weight weighing your body down.

These three benefits for diets is just a few little drops in the bucket. Losing weight will have extremely radical and good effects on your body. Dieting is 80% of the weight loss. Diets are not as hard as you may think. They have absolutely hundreds of good benefits. I hope that you guys will consider doing a diet and to change your life for the good and for the better. If you don't, then you risk being really sick and or dying.

4 Tips to Getting Rid of Cellulite, the Un-fabulous Flab

Are you someone that has been plagued by cellulite? That extra skin that hangs from those parts of our body that consume the most fat, and we often find that its the hardest of the fat to get rid of. Depending on how much you have it can take a few months to years to get rid of it fully. Not to worry though because we have come up with some ways to get rid of that un-fabulous flab that we love to call cellulite. Get rid of the unattractive, jelly-like, squishy, and un-pleasurable flabby fat today!

1. Dry Skin Scrub
We have all heard that we loose dead skin cells as a natural phenomenon that happens to us throughout our days, but what if I told you that using a medium bristled brush as a dry scrub would remove cellulite and open up your pores? You can do it a few minutes a day before your shower and it doesn't bother your skin too much. Make sure that your brush is thick enough to scrub, but not so thick that you start to bleed from the scrubbing.

2. Coffee Scrub
After you use your dry skin scrub with the brush, put on a coat of a little bit of water mixed in with coffee grounds on the part that you scrubbed. This will rejuvenate your skin and make it feel invigorated. We all know the wake up that coffee gives you in the morning. Now you can use it to jump start the cellulite burning away process. These two combined give your cellulite ridden parts a good zapping. Feel the burn!


 3. Peppers
Mucho en fuego! Peppers are known to have ingredients and aspects to them that boost weight loss. They literally will melt fat right off of your body. Cellulite will not stand a chance when the acid from the peppers and the heat hits your body. You will see the cellulite shrink down by adding peppers to your meals. Jazz up your taste buds, and give your legs something to dance about!

4. Hydration
How much water do you drink in a day? 6 ounces? 8 ounces? 2 liters? If you are like me, then you don't drink nearly enough water. You feel like you are thirsty, but you go for the caffeinated products. By drinking sodas and sugary drinks, you deplete your body of water and put more fat on. If you want to burn cellulite, drink enough water in a day and you will flush your skin of harmful toxins. Hydration in key to you getting rid of cellulite!

7 Things to Do When You Feel Like Quitting

Are you someone that is thinking about quitting your weight loss or diet program? We have all thought about doing this at one point or another. The thought about quitting seems to come up a lot because we find it hard to do the things that are essential for weight loss and keeping on track with our diet. You can either quit what you are doing with your weight loss or diet program, or you can take the bull by the horns and go out and do it. What do you do when you feel like quitting? Let's take a look!

1. Remember
The first thing that you can do when you feel like quitting is to think back and remember why it was that you were wanting to quit. You may have been doing your weight loss or diet program because you wanted to get a girl or a guy, or you were losing weight to fit in smaller clothes, to look better, whatever reason that you had. Think back and really remember the, "why." You will be glad you did. 

2. Hold 
The second thing that you can do is to hold on to that reason and why you wanted to do it in the first place. People forget things and why they do the things that they do. Hold on with a tight grip to that all important reason why you are doing it. When everything wants to take that reason you are doing your weight loss or diet program away from you, take a hold of it and rip it out of their hands.

3. Focus
After you struggle and grind and fight with the reason why you were wanting to do it in the first place, focus on the solution that will bring your motivation and love for doing it back around. The solution is to think about all of the time and energy and money that you have already given to it. Think about what your life would be like if you were to quit. Would your family line continue with obesity and disease from obesity? Or can you pull yourself up by your bootstraps and make a difference?

4. Reality
A lot of the bloggers that I see that blog about weight loss, fitness, dieting, bodybuilding, working out, and on and on, they all have one thing in common. That one thing is that they sugar coat everything for you and tell you that it's easy. If it were easy, everyone would be doing it. Think about reality and how the world works. Nothing is easy! Weight loss is a long and hard road. I have seen fitness gurus and trainers that say its easy. Its not. Now that you have thought about reality, think about reality in the sense of how easy it COULD be by breaking it down into smaller chunks, say, a few minutes a day to work out. Keep in mind that its hard, not easy.

5. Goals
Share your goals with at least one person this week that is NOT yourself! By sharing these goals with someone, you may find it it will inspire them and them being inspired might inspire you. Take some time to get a drink, slow down in the day, and share your thoughts and goals for weight loss and dieting with them. They might have useful information for you on how to attain those goals as well. 

6. Challenges
Acknowledge the challenges that you are facing and will face in the future with going through with weight loss or dieting. So often we find ourselves struggling in challenges and we don't acknowledge them. By doing this, we put ourselves in a place to be completely oblivious towards what it is that's causing us to fail. Accept those challenges and work to conquer them and destroy them with every step you take.

7. Positive
The last thing to do when you feel like quitting is to be positive. Think about the happy things that you have accomplished through weight loss and or dieting. Take away the negative thoughts that will bring you down and strive to be positive and happy. By doing this you will find that you no longer want to quit your weight loss or diet program. Positive thinking is like good food for the soul.

I hope that my readers can implement these things that you can do when you feel like quitting. Its a pretty simple job of thinking about how hard you have worked and not being stupid enough to quit. I know that it hurts when you work out and its hard to eat good all the time, but you guys must strive to beat obesity and keep going. Otherwise, you may find that if you quit, it just might be to your demise or downfall.

Eating Disorders...Not Just for the Young

Eating disorders and eating bad has affected us and still affects on a daily basis, even though we may not think that we are affected. Young people are not the only ones that have eating disorders. We are going to look at who is affected by eating disorders. I was reading a post from The Huffington Post about how young people are not the only ones that are affected. I want to re-iterate a few points from THIS BLOG POST, and explain my take on these topics as to why older people are NOT exempt from eating disorders. Here are ways you can tell that you have an eating disorder.

1. Preoccupied Thoughts 
All to often we find ourselves being preoccupied with thoughts about food, weight loss, or cooking. This is kind of one of those, "I like to cook / I have a problem and need to stop thinking about food" types of things. If you are a stay-at-home mom or person that likes to stay home, then you find yourself around food and in the kitchen a lot. You eat, drink, live, sleep, with food at the forefront. Older people struggle with this one more than younger people. They have more time to plan and eat.

2. Avoid Social Gatherings
If you know that a social gathering will be at a restaurant or it will have food, you try to avoid it at all costs. This could be hanging out at a sports bar and can go so far as not wanting to go to a friend's house because there will be food there. This is the second way that you can know that you have an eating order. Why do you have to avoid social gatherings because there is food there? Moderation!

3. Mood Swings, Irritability and Depression
If you have ever had an eating disorder when you have to eat to be happier and when you don't eat you feel like ripping someone's head off, you can relate to this all too well. People that have to eat in order to be happy, less irritable, or come out of mood swings have an eating disorder. If you raised your hand and said, "That's me," then you can be sure that you have an eating disorder. You can be older or younger, it doesn't matter. I have known older people that have mood swings as if there is no tomorrow.

4. Nervous or Indecisive
Do you get nervous or indecisive around meal times? If you are like a lot of the people that have an eating disorder, you may realize that you have nerves in the form of an upset stomach or gas. People with eating disorders are nervous or indecisive about their lives or decisions when it comes to meal times. Older people can experience these symptoms as well as younger people, its not just about younger people.

I hope that you have properly assessed your life and if you have an eating disorder, whether you are younger or older. There are 5 more ways that you can decide and assess whether you have an eating disorder. CLICK HERE to go to The Huffington Post's originally quoted post! I hope that you guys can look forward to fixing your eating disorders now that we have looked at some characteristics of people that have eating disorders.

For more information on the most widely spread eating disorder, anorexia nervosa, you can go to the link below to get more information from Dr. Oz on how to fix this eating disorder.

I want to encourage you to fix your life and the problem of eating disorders whether you are a healthy younger person or you are an older person that is struggling.
