How Healthy Are Your Weight Loss Endeavors?

By Ma Diga | January 26, 2013

The problem with the switch to a healthy diet is mainly that people consider it an all or nothing endeavor, while moderation is the real key here. Switching to a healthy diet is not about depriving yourself of food that you love. It’s just about knowing what you’re eating and how much you should eat.

But what if you think that you’re eating everything right and not putting on calories but trading in your health to lose weight? Or maybe, there are certain foods that you’re already avoiding to not put on weight but later realize that they could actually harm you in more ways than just adding onto your inches?

Given below are some such ingredients that are best not even taken in moderation, irrespective of the fact that you’re trying to lose weight or not:

1.    Artificial Sweeteners

You might be gulping down diet sodas on a daily basis, thinking that thankfully it’s not adding to your inches. But did you ever care to think if it’s still healthy for you, if you are to consider other aspects of your health other than weight? You sure didn’t know that aspartame, the artificial sweetener which is found in diet sodas is an excitotoxin.

Excitotoxins are mainly responsible for ‘exciting’ the body cells, making them overproduce certain chemical that burns them out before time. This sweetener has been found to have harmful cancerous effects and is better avoided. A study that tested 48 mice with diet sodas revealed that almost 67 percent of the female rats were reported of developing tumors that were almost the size of golf balls.

Equal and Nutrasweet are some of the forms in which this sweeter is sold and you MUST avoid it completely. Just because something is not adding to your weight doesn’t mean that it’s healthy for you. Aspartame has also been known to cause many types of neurological diseases and to be created with the use of genetically modified bacteria, giving you more reasons to stay away from it.

2.    The Trans Fat You Are Oblivious About

Say NO to trans fat, hydrogenated vegetable oils, and hydrogenated oils. Often you’ll be able to spot hydrogenated oils in the ingredients section of labels but you’ll be able to recognize it easily with the term ‘trans fat’. Thanks to their extended shelf lives, store owners prefer to have them all over the place and you’ll find hydrogenated oils in all the stores without fail. But you must know that in trying to avoid these oils for weight loss, you’re also saving yourself from a probable heart disease and other complications in health as well.

Another research revealed that junk food that contains trans fats can cause perfectly young and healthy men infertile as it can damage the sperm.

3.   Sugar

Maple syrup, cane juice, brown rice syrup, molasses or honey, corn sweetener, cane sugar, Sucrose, Glucose, Fructose, Dextrose or Maltose – there are so many names by which sugar can be spotted in the ingredient list of various labels. The extensive over-consumption of sugar is increasing at an alarming rate so much that scientists are making a declaration for it to be a health crisis. An average daily consumption of an American itself amounts to 475 calories of added sugars, which is equivalent to almost 30 tablespoons of sugars.

The sugar consumption is now proving to be a major culprit in increasing cases of obesity, cancer, diabetes and heart diseases. Sugar, especially when it is consumed as a high-fructose corn syrup, is extremely harmful for your health as it is finely processed and usually consists of toxic mercury. So, while you must make deliberate attempt to keep a check on your daily sugar consumption and keeping it to a minimum, be sure to completely give up on your cravings for high-fructose corn syrup.

Although knowledge does help but it can be difficult to be mindful of everything you eat, especially when factors like lack of time and laziness gets in the way and you feel like grabbing any which thing that you can lay your hands on without much delay when you’re hungry. And let’s admit it, most of us are too busy (or lazy) to cook every day.

In such a scenario, you can leave the worries of calculating what is healthy for you onto meal delivery services, like Bistro MD (you can click the given to find the discounts and coupon deals for Bistro MD). Or, you can read real reviews of Diet To Go, which is another popular healthy weight loss meal delivery program.

No matter what, please do not succumb to fast food joints thinking them to be a cheaper alternative. Door-to-door meal delivery services are both affordable and equally convenient. Plus, you’re not putting your health at stake. You wouldn’t want to save money now by eating junk food and putting in your money years later on your health treatments. And in any case, it is more about living a healthy life more than about money.

Your Turn

What steps do you take to stick to your weight loss plan? How successful have you been? Are there any more deceiving ingredients that you know about that should be avoided? Share it all with us in the comments section.

The Right Diet after the Bariatric Surgery

By Ma Diga | January 23, 2013

Bariatric surgery can be quite taxing on your body and after the surgery is done, there is a strict diet plan that you need to follow and maintain. It is not as difficult as it sounds if you care for
your body and want to maintain your post-surgery weight.  There are some food items, which might be your favorites, off limits because of their high sugar

or fat content and it is possible that your body has become intolerant towards them as well. A lot of care has to be taken about what you put inside your mouth.

The food intake proceeds slowly from liquid diet to solids. You have to maintain a balanced diet rich in the following things after you have undergone bariatric surgery in Mexico

1. Fluids – After surgery, there is always a risk of dehydration and this is why you must
keep yourself hydrated at all times. Don’t consume fluids during meals but otherwise,
you must keep some liquids handy. Water is obviously the best fluid but you can
also drink herbal teas and iced teas (that are not sweet), beverages (that should not be
carbonated) and coffee et al. You can use a substitute for sugar as well.

2. Whole Grains – As your diet moves further, a few months in and you can have
carbohydrates. It is, however, necessary that you opt for more fiber in your diet for which
whole grains are the best source. Eat small portions of cream of rice and wheat, grits and
oatmeal initially but later, you can consume wheat pasta and even brown rice and toast
from whole wheat. Test your tolerance and proceed very slowly, giving your digestion
some time to adjust.

3. Proteins – Proteins are compulsory for healing your body post-surgery and help in
building some much needed muscle mass. Ingestion of protein starts from the liquid stage
in the form of protein shakes and skimmed or soy milk. When you graduate into the soft
food level, go for yoghurt, low fat cheese, tender beef, tofu, poultry, eggs and soft fish.
When you are allowed to have solids, you can have lean meats and low fat meats as well.

4. Vitamins – Initially, you would be taking vitamins in liquid form but as your diet
progresses, your doctor will permit you to consume multivitamin tablets. The vitamins
depend on your surgery requirements and you must discuss this thoroughly with your

5. Fruits And Vegetables – Because of their high fiber content, there are very few fruits
and vegetables that you can eat during the initial recuperation stage, that too in the form
of juices only. Slowly, you can introduce soft steamed and cooked vegetables in your
diet and unsweetened mashed fruits as well. Avoid fruits that have stringy fiber in them
because that can be difficult to digest.

Super Foods That are Alternative to Diet Pills

By Ma Diga | January 11, 2013

Dieting can be a hard thing to take on as there are many options out there for consumers to try when losing weight and unwanted pounds. Life for people nowadays is hectic, and traditional diet and exercise plans are a lot of inconvenience is some cases, and that has led many people to trying diet pills. Many claim to be better than anything on the market, and in actuality this avenue may be something to avoid all together.

Diet pills are known to be addictive in some cases, and also have had reports that some are not approved by the FDA. Some herbal remedies can also hit hard in the sense that the so called herbal choices may not be legitimate forms of herbs to take. Some can also cause health problems that are more harmful than what a regular diet and exercise could help someone accomplish.

It’s usually best to consult with your doctor about what the best course of action for you is going to be in regards to planning out a diet and exercise regimen. Many doctors will advise against diet pills as they can cause you to lose weight in an unnatural way as well as cause hypertension and heart problems as they up the nervous system’s activity to cause you to feel fuller.

It’s always best to have balance in your diet. Following the food pyramid is a great way to help decide how to create portion balance and control in your diet. Cutting out fatty foods, sugar, sweets, and simple carbs can help your body lean more towards what it should be focusing on which are complex carbs, whole grains, pasta, whole wheat, and fruits and vegetables.

Kicking out any stimulants like caffeine is also a plus when helping the body to detoxify itself from impurities and bad particles that could harm you. It’s best to have these particles flushed out of the system to start with a clean slate before going into an active diet.

Additional specific foods you can choose from are spaghetti, whole wheat pasta and grains, whole wheat bread versus white bread, natural juices, and fruits are just a few. Some fruits you can choose from are ones rich in anti-oxidants such as berries, melon, citrus, etc. Fruits high in potassium such as bananas are popular, and can help balance out your immune system. Apples are great to for their qualities in vitamin A and other fiber-rich qualities.

It’s best to have three main courses or meals in a day and space out small snacks in between. The snacks should be more in the direction of fruit and snacks such as whole wheat crackers or a cheese stick and yogurt for example.

If performing any exercise, it’s best to have a meal or snack within the first twenty minutes of finishing exercise so the body can replenish itself with fuel that it has lost. Otherwise, if you wait too long you are causing the body to go into a sense of fasting.

In regards to your food choices, choose carefully to ensure your exercise pays off. Diet pills are available, however not only can they get expensive, but there are many that not only not work, but can lead to certain side effects.

Getting Over Emotional Eating and Keeping a Check on Your Weight

By Ma Diga | January 10, 2013

From following the most popular weight loss program to resorting to nothing but boiled vegetables for months, there’s so much work that we all do to lose that extra flab and have an hour glass figure. Then why is it that most people fail in actually getting that “ideal” figure or the no-love handles physique? The answer is simple. When you make the change in your lifestyle that can become the part of your very nature and who you are, it’s only then that you can actually think about losing weight and most importantly, keep it off too.

Although we’re all surrounded by fad diets and healthy eating advice everywhere, still a very subtle reason for weight gain that a majority of us choose to ignore is the issue of emotional eating. Stress, boredom, anger, exhaustion, loneliness, celebration – these are some of the most common emotional triggers that cause you to open the refrigerator and reach out for those high-calorie chocolates or a bag full of chips. When there’s anything other than physical hunger that is driving you to gorge on food, you’re emotional eating. So basically, you’re eating to fill your emotional needs rather than your stomach.

The worst part is, the emotional issue remains unexpressed and unsorted, plus you begin to feel guilty because you had overeaten so much. What makes things even more complicated is that it gets difficult to identify if you’re emotional eating or if it is actually the physical hunger that has compelled you to eat.

Are You an Emotional Eater?

If you’re now thinking if you actually fit the description of an emotional eater or not, here are a few points to assist you in your evaluation:

How to Stop Emotional Eating?

If you had been a round figure most of your life and no fad diet or weight loss belt have worked for you, probably now you’ve got your answer. All you need to do is – eat only when you’re actually hungry and not emotionally down. So let the healing begin and make you a redeemed emotional eater:


Know Your Triggers

    1. Stress – The more you worry, the more you’ll eat. Food becomes your emotional relief.
    2. Silencing Your Emotions – Feelings of anger, anxiety, fear, shame, resentment, loneliness, sadness, are all uncomfortable emotions that you try not to feel  by resorting to comfort foods, stacking on more calories and feeling guilty later for eating it.
    3. Childhood Habits – Did you ever get a pizza treat or a chocolate for performing well in class? Or, maybe when you’ve won in a competition? Rewarding children with food often make them associate achievements with food, which interprets in their adult life too.
    4. Feeling Empty or Bored – Eating something is like having something to do. It’s a way to avoid dealing with the feeling of boredom or general dissatisfaction with your life.
    5. Social Influences – The food is there, everyone is eating. Why would you stop? Or maybe, your peer group insists that you overeat and you say “Ah…What the heck!” and grabs that pack of French fries.

Find for Alternatives that Satisfy Your Emotional Needs

The reason why so many fad diets fail so often is because they do not address the issue of emotional eating. They tell you what to eat and what not to eat, but not how to cope with your emotional needs when so many people simply give up and succumb to food as their favorite resort to deal with it all.

This is why, it’s important that you must know how to handle your triggers, like if you’re anxious for some reason, you can channelize your nervous energy by dancing for a few minutes, or maybe by going for a brisk walk? If you’re depressed, you can talk to a good friend. Take a bubble bath if you’re exhausted or you can watch a good movie or read a good book if you’re bored.

Learn to accept your feelings even if they are bad and may seem too scary to deal with right now. You wouldn’t want to put on any more weight than you already have now. Don’t you?

Switch to Healthy Lifestyle

When you’re well rested and happy in life, you’re able to take on small hiccups in a better manner than when you’re exhausted and depressed, no matter how big or small it is. If you do not wish to make your way towards the refrigerator again because if your emotional needs, be sure to have a balanced life with daily exercise, quality sleep time, socializing, and some time to relax for yourself.

Drown yourself in work day in and day out and watch your energy levels deplete along with the sadness of putting on that extra flab.

Although a frugal lover, Lyttle doesn’t mind spending on an effective weight loss program or devices like proven weight loss belts as they save both time and efforts while giving you great results even when your crammed schedule doesn’t allow you to do anything. She is currently a contributor to Shape Up America, a site about fitness, health news, and best weight loss programs.

Bad Habits and How to Get Rid of Them at Home, Work and at School

By Ma Diga | January 10, 2013

Habits are something that are ever changing and developing for us each day as we move through our lives. We can subconsciously create them, we can purposely make them up, and sometimes they form out of compulsion. Habits can be a good thing as well as a bad thing depending on where we are in our lives and what they mean to us. Some habits don’t interact well with others. As good as life is, habits are one of the main catalysts and also stumbling blocks we have that only we can change to better our lives. Here are some common bad habits, and how to get rid of them to make you not as stressful and feeling better about yourself.

Here are some common bad habits we can develop over time:

-Bad Table Manners

-Rude remarks in conversation

-Not being able to listen in a conversation

These are a few that you can learn to eliminate and improve on and here are some tips to help.

Table Manners

Each and every day it’s easy to just eat and run. Not only is it fast, but it’s convenient for many people. One of the more traditional methods of eating dinner at the dinner table with your family is becoming more and more of a thing of the past, and TV as well as things such as internet and video games are becoming more important, which is never a good thing. Even special meals at Christmas and Thanksgiving are now becoming a meal that is just casual and something some people want to rush in hopes of watching the game afterwards.

When you find yourself in the scenario of fine dining or at a neat table setting, it’s best to use this time as time to spend with family. Consider asking your kids how their day at school was and rather than letting everyone eat whatever they want and going about their hobbies, make it family time. Spending time with your family can help you all get to know each other again as well as take an interest in what is going on in everyone’s lives.

Rude Remarks

Life can be rather miserable for some people sometimes, and especially when you work with someone else and the pressure is on. It can be a second by second challenge to keep your attitude in check and remain polite even when you may think you are being undervalued or not efficient in getting something done. Arguments can flare in the workplace and tension rises rather quickly. Have patience, breath, and always think before you speak. This helps a lot. Rude remarks never got anyone anywhere, so try and be the bigger person if you are faced with that type of situation.

Learning to Listen

Conversing with others is a two way street. One person talks at a time, and so often nowadays people interrupt in the middle of a conversation. Having patience is key, and rather than you rushing and not really caring what the other person is saying, take turns.

Eliminating bad habits can mean a happier you and a more productive you.

How to Heck Can I Acquire Good Habits for Adults and Children?

By Ma Diga | January 9, 2013

Many of us have different forms or habits out there that we have acquired over the years. Some of them are good while others aren’t so good. There are all types that we do from the moment we wake up to going to bed. Some of us may not realize how much time can be wasted in forming a bad habit and how non-productive it can be in forming one. Here are some tips on acquiring good habits and getting rid of any bad ones you might have.

Create a List

Write down a list of what you know are some of the bad habits that you are aware of and the ones you want to get rid of. They can relate to anything you want. Here are some major examples:

-Forgetting to brush your teeth

-Not making your bed

-Leaving dishes in the sink

-Not cutting the grass

-Not taking a shower in the morning (Believe it or not people do forget)

-Misplacing your keys

Some of these, if not all of them, can be fixed by simply paying attention more often. Once you get some of it down, you can then prioritize what is more important to you and what you can do to make an effective plan to fix the problem.

See what is more important than other things and cut out the ones that are not as important to you. Now obviously taking a shower is important so when it comes to personal hygiene please take extra care to make sure you are taking care of yourself.

Each day it can be hard to deal with many things you might be faced with, and sometimes you may just want to give up. That’s when you need to bear down, breathe, and reprioritize what is important in your day to day life.

Consider breaking up your chores and doing a few each day rather than all of them at one time. This can be hard, but maybe doing one room a day can be better than tackling a huge house in a day.

When it comes to smaller or miniscule things, you can see how you can accomplish them on other days or eliminate them completely. Rather than coming home and leaving your keys on the counter, consider having a shelf or key rack that you place your keys on each night you come home. This will hopefully turn a small bad habit into a good one, and completely eliminate the problem all together.

If you have a tendency to try and tackle everything at once, make a list of what you are going to do each and every day. Make a list of your errands, or what needs to be cleaned. Cross each item off once that task or errand is taken care of and continue until you finish your list for that day.

Jot down bad habits you know you have, prioritize them, and move on with what is important. There are several ways to help develop new habits and kick bad habits in the butt. Find what works for you and stick with it.

How Exercise Can Be Beneficial Over Diet Pills

By Ma Diga | January 8, 2013

Diet and exercise are usually the most recommended course of action to take when trying to lose weight in the safest and most efficient way possible. There are options out there for people to either spend the time doing diet and exercise, or to take a dietary supplement or diet pill. Diet pills can cause more adverse affects than healthy ones, and will not always aid in the process of losing weight effectively.

Proper diet and exercise will also stimulate endorphins in the body which will act as a natural stimulant you when performing the exercises and diet that is recommended for safe weight loss.

Is Combining Diet Pills with Exercise Good?

By Ma Diga | January 7, 2013

Losing weight is a problem that many face in their daily lives. This usually due to the fact that many just have busy lives and cannot dedicate time to effectively exercise and lose the weight properly. Many people work 40 hours a week on average or in some cases even more. After sleeping, driving around, shopping, etc there might not be any time left in the day at all to be able to do exercise to lose weight.

In this case, some people resort to diet pills and also buy into their promise that diet pills can help lose weight and burn calories by essentially doing nothing. This is usually all a bunch of hype and nothing more than that. Diet pills contain fat blockers and other stimulants to suppress hunger. This is not overall a healthy choice though. This causes the body to take on more of an unnatural cause to losing weight and by suppressing hunger can cause loss of intake of essential nutrients and vitamins that are necessary for daily bodily functions.

Taking diet pills and exercising can be done in moderation. However, it’s quite easy to go overboard with this option, and some people become addicted. Diet pills do not provide an effective means for staying hydrated, and can cause cramping as well as an elevated heart rate. When these factors are thrown together on top of strenuous exercise, they can be detrimental to your health.

In actuality, exercising too much can actually cause you to speed up any adverse side effects of the diet pill you may be taking as well. In worst case scenario, if this happens, there are even more severe reactions or side effects that you may experience. People who are on diet pills for a long period of time or are taking too much, have been known to suffer from heart attacks and other medical or health problems usually not associated with their body type and health condition.

It is best to stay aim more towards general exercise and a proper, well-balanced diet.  Instead of taking fat burner pills, which are actually fat blockers rather than fat burners, it is recommended to just decrease the fat intake in your diet while performing more of a cardiovascular fitness regimen.

This will help burn more fat calories in the body. With a proper diet of complex carbohydrates, you can then also replenish the body with essential energy while you burn the fat off as well.

Staying hydrated is very important too. It’s more so important when on a diet pill, and equally important when doing exercises. The body loses water quite easily and needs a balance of pure water and electrolytes to keep its metabolic balance in place. Therefore, when you are exercising, always ensure that you drink plenty of water.

Diet pills are all the hype nowadays, and with promises of not having to exercise to lose weight, it can be hard to avoid. However, when you try them, you can soon see that results are not real and you may even have side effects that were never mentioned.

What Some Exercises Are Better Than Others

By Ma Diga | January 6, 2013

Losing weight can be a hard thing to commit to when you have a busy life and are short on time. It’s quite easy to get stuck behind a desk, in a car, and relaxing at home and not being able to burn fat rather than putting it on. It’s quite an easy thing to do, and with the right programs, can be even more effective. 

Fat deposits can build up in the body in areas that are hard to work off or in areas that seem impossible to lose it from. Fat normally collects on the belly and thighs in most people, and can also be found in the hip area of the body forming what is commonly known as love handles or a muffin top.

What is the Right Way to Loose the Weight?

Exercise and proper diet is almost always recommended over taking a dietary supplement or diet pills. Diet pills are known to suppress hunger and block fat in unnatural ways. They can also lead the body to experience elevated heart rate levels and undue stress in the nervous system.

What Exercises Are Better Than Others?

There are several exercises that are better than some in terms of burning fat. Some people think that lifting weights is a descent form of exercise to burn off extra calories and fat. If you pay attention though, you will notice that people who lift weights can put on muscle but not necessarily burn off fat content. This is because it uses a different energy system that is more focused on power generation rather than building lean muscle and taking fat off the body.

What About Cardiovascular Fitness?

This is probably the best form of exercise to do when staying away from diet pills. This gets the heart rate up, and can help stimulate the body into burning fat to aid in energy consumption. This will also help the body build lean muscle mass instead of bulk muscle which will help make the body stronger in its efforts of exercise. Many people are aiming for lean muscle rather than large and bulky muscle, and this is a great way to do just that.

Swimming is a great cardiovascular fitness exercise that can help you with losing weight as it uses all of the muscles in the body, and comes with minimal resistance as well as less impact on the body.


Running can help boost your cardiovascular fitness, but can also lead to problems with your knees if you do not stretch properly. Some people have good and bad days running, whereas in swimming, you have more of a chance to get a daily exercise that will help sustain you when going into another exercise.


Bicycling is a great cardiovascular exercise that has less impact on your knees than running, and comes with the extra bonus of being able to check out the scenery of the area you are riding in.

While many people feel diet pills are a better option, there are health risks that come with them. The more you incorporate a well-balanced diet as well as an exercise regimen, the better you are going to be.

Why Should I Exercise to Lose Weight?

By Ma Diga | January 5, 2013

Exercising to lose weight is the most beneficial thing you can do in terms of setting a weight loss goal and accomplishing it. There are people out there who have resorted to taking weight loss or diet pills and supplements. This is normally a bad thing, and over time can cause you more harm than good. Diet pills make the body not want to take in food as it naturally should, and can also lead you to experience a really wired or jittery feeling as it stimulates the nerve endings in the body. This can lead to gas and bloating issues which most don’t like to deal with; especially where weight loss in a comfortable way is the goal.

Weight loss comes with work no matter which way you look at it. You can either over work your body in an unnatural way with the diet pill route, or you can work it in a more healthy way with the proper diet and exercise routine. This is what is recommended most by doctors and dietitians alike as it is the healthier and safer option.

Exercise will help your body release endorphins or feel good particles in your body that can help stimulate a positive mood, and make you feel good about yourself.

Getting back into shape is part of a tedious process, but as you continue to get back into more of a physical form you’ll begin to feel pretty good about yourself too. Exercise is beneficial not only because it will help you lose weight, but also because it will help boost your immune system and allow you to stay limber so your joints don’t get too stiff over the years. Staying active can also help you if you have any tight ligaments or arthritic conditions. Exercise will help you increase your mobility and how much you will or won’t be able to move that particular area of the body.

It’s best to consult with your doctor or a physical trainer to see what your body condition is in and how ready or not you are for exercise. You can also learn the best approach for you is in order to get back in the swing of things.

It is advisable to not overdo yourself as this can lead to doing you more harm than good; for example, overdoing on diet pills. The old adage that states “everything in moderation” pertains to everything including this.

Gradually getting back into shape and putting the diet pills aside will help you gain a greater overall well-being. When your metabolism is stimulated, it will help your body shift into more of a fat burning process rather than feeding off of the junk that has been stored. With proper balance control, you will be able to burn more fat, build lean muscle, and be successful in the process.
