Top 10 Ways To Lose Weight And Tame The Hunger Monster

Losing weight is about fewer calories in and more calories out. Right? The problem with eating fewer calories than we burn is that intentionally cutting back on food intake inevitably makes people hungry. As you cut back on your daily intake, there is a sense of deprivation, your body goes into panic mode, and you get hungry. You develop cravings and urges to eat. You keep hoping the constant gnawing of hunger pangs will pass, but instead you feel compelled to eat more. Eventually, you go back to your old ways of eating and the pounds creep back on.

While calories do count, it’s a sense of fullness and satisfaction which are necessary ingredients for long term success. Here’s the scenario: When your stomach is empty, nerve impulses automatically signal the brain to increase your appetite. In addition, a powerful brain chemical, neuropeptide Y (NPY), is released to stimulate appetite. If you restrict food for any reason – your body can’t tell the difference between a diet or famine – nerve impulses and NPY soar in an effort to make you eat.

What you need to prevent these signals is larger quantities of the right kinds of foods. Instead of walking around starved all day, there are multiple ways to keep your body feeling happily full, and all the while losing weight. Here are ten powerful and practical ways to keep your hunger satisfied.

Eat Less More Often
Rather than eating one or two large meals, create structure for yourself by dividing your eating into several smaller portions through the day. How frequent should meals be? Three mid-size meals a day may suit some people, but for many five or six little ones may be a better plan. Decide how many meals and snacks work for you and then stick to your plan. Once you get good at following your eating schedule, then you can experiment with becoming looser with your eating. Eating smaller meals more often can give you the constant energy levels that leave you feeling more balanced and productive. Plus, you will be less likely to overeat when you feel reassured that more food is available shortly.

Balance Complex and Simple Carbohydrates
Make those frequent meals about 300 to 500 calories each, with a mix of protein (nuts, eggs, low-fat or non-fat dairy products, beans, fish, lean meat, soy or poultry without the skin), fruits and vegetables, and whole grains to keep insulin and blood sugar levels even.

Simple carbohydrates, found in fruit juice, soda, candy, or highly processed foods like sugary cereals, digest quickly and provide an immediate source of energy. Complex carbohydrates, including vegetables, oatmeal, whole grain breads and cereals, and beans take longer to digest and provide a longer lasting source of energy. Complex carbohydrates are high-fiber foods, which improve your digestion, help stabilize blood sugar levels, and keep your energy at an even level. By creating a balance, and limiting processed carbohydrates you can feel satisfied longer after your meal.

Eat Solidly
Solid food is more filling than liquid food. Yet, we are now drinking more calories than ever before – soft drinks, Frappucinos© and other fancy coffee drinks, frozen Slurpees©, sports drinks, alcohol, juices, sugary teas, and flavored water. A particular problem with liquid calories is that they don’t fill us up or keep us satisfied like solid foods. Without having a sense of fullness, we don’t compensate for the calories in fluids by eating fewer calories from other foods.

Snack Sense
Eat snacks that contain fiber, protein, and water. The more of these ingredients a food contains, the longer it will satisfy. For example, a sandwich made with whole grain bread, lean protein, lettuce and tomato, and an apple is going to be far more satisfying than a few rice cakes and iced tea. In general, the more satisfying food feels, the more effectively they prevent nibbling. Rather than downsizing your normal portions when trying to lose weight, which can make you feel hungry and deprived, try eating more of low-calorie, high fiber, protein, and water content foods. Examples include hummus and whole wheat crackers, oatmeal made with skim milk and topped with raisins, cottage cheese with fresh fruit, or protein energy bars that are high in fiber and fruit and low in sugar.

Pile on the Veggies
Sometimes you’ve just got to have some cookies, ice cream, pie, or chips. But to keep excess weight off – and stay healthy – include lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. High fiber foods (vegetables, fruits, beans, oatmeal, whole grains) fill you up and help you eat less. High fiber foods tend to be bulkier, filling up the stomach quickly. This stimulates receptors in your brain to let you know you’re full. They also slow down digestion, helping keep you full longer. And if you’re full longer, you’re more likely to eat less later on.

Soup is Good Food
Research shows that soup is one of the most satisfying foods there is. Soups may be of value for weight loss because they tend to be low in calories and high in a large volume of liquid. Soup weighs a lot. Just a few minutes after you’ve eaten them, soups and other foods high in water (i.e. vegetable stews or boiled potatoes) fill you up quickly and tell the brain you’re sufficiently fed. Soups made from tomatoes, vegetables, beans, peas, or lentils are especially effective. (Note – soups made with cream, cheese, or sausage are not likely to be beneficial.) Excellent hunger busting soups include barley soup, lentil soup, split pea, tomato, and vegetable soup.

Losing Weight with Peanut Butter
Peanut butter may seem like a guilty pleasure, but research shows it could be a healthy habit. A two-tablespoon portion size is packed with 8 grams of protein, 190 calories, fiber, vitamins and minerals, and is loaded with heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. Research shows that dieters who eat nuts tend to stick to their diets because the fat and fiber content of nuts are very filling. As a result, they are not as hungry and ultimately eat less and lose more weight.

Protein Power
The addition of protein to a meal can increase the amount of a hunger-fighting hormone. The hormone, known as peptide YY (PYY) may help reduce hunger and aid weight loss. Research suggests that low-fat foods containing protein produce stronger and more sustained feelings of fullness and decrease the likelihood of overeating later on. Including small amounts of seafood, lean meat, skinless poultry, reduced-fat dairy products or soy products with each meal may be excellent appetite subduers. Especially lean choices of protein include flounder, cod, crab, sole, tuna, egg whites, sirloin, tenderloin, skim milk, Canadian bacon, and loin pork.

Drink Up!
A glass of water has absolutely no calories, yet it can help keep you satisfied. The trick is in the timing. Drink water on an empty stomach and it will pass right through you too fast to stimulate a signal of fullness. But ingest it with your meal, and the volume and weight it adds to your meal will make you finish sooner.

Also, many times people mistake thirst for hunger. When your body is sending signals, we tend to assume it needs food. Next time you’re hungry but “shouldn’t be” try drinking a glass of water, Perrier, or herbal tea instead of reaching for a snack. It may be just what you need.

High-Satiety Foods
Rather than downsizing your normal portions when trying to lose weight, which can make you feel hungry and deprived, try eating more of these low-calorie, high-satiety foods. To help guide you in your selections, here is a list of both high-satiety foods and their counterparts.

High-Satiety Foods:
Tomato Soup
Split Pea Soup
Vegetarian Stews
Whole Fruit (apples, oranges, grapes)
Vegetarian Beans
Baked Beans
Air-popped Popcorn
Grilled Shrimp
Cod or Sole Fish
Oatmeal With Milk
Whole Grain Products
Poached Eggs
Brown Rice

Low-Satiety Foods:
Potato Chips
Frosted Cake
White Bread
Ice Cream
Candy Bars
French Fries
Low-Fat, High-Sugar Cookies
Pasta with Cream Sauce

Breathe before you eat, breathe while you eat, and breathe after you eat. Breathing before you eat moves you away from your thoughts and worries and connects you to consciously noticing, smelling, touching, and tasting the food that is in your present moment. Breathing more fully while you are eating brings oxygen into your body that helps digest the food. Breath into the vibrant, welcoming, energy contained within your food.

Feeling hungry can undermine your best-laid weight loss plans. By adopting a few smart strategies listed above, you can make it through those moments of hunger—or prevent them from happening in the first place.

Lose The Extra Weight and You Are Likely To Increase Your Wealth

Overweight Americans who lose a lot of weight also tend to build more wealth as they drop the pounds, according to new research.

The study found that the link between weight loss and wealth gains was particularly strong among white women. Black women and white men also gained wealth as they lost weight, but not as much as did white women. The wealth of black men was basically unaffected by their weight.

There's no way to tell from the data whether losing weight was the reason for the gain in wealth, but the linkage was definitely there, said Jay Zagorsky, author of the study and a research scientist at Ohio State University's Center for Human Resource Research.

“The typical person who loses or gains a few pounds had almost no change in wealth, but those who lost or gained large amounts of weight had a more dramatic change,”
Zagorsky said.

For example, white women who dropped their body mass index score (BMI) – a standard measure of obesity – by 10 points saw a wealth increase of $11,880. White men saw an increase of $12,720 for a similar drop, while black women increased wealth by $4,480.

The study appears online in the “Articles in Press” section of the journal Economics and Human Biology.

The study used data involving about 7,300 people who participated in the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth, which is funded primarily by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The NLSY is a nationally representative survey of people nationwide conducted by Ohio State 's Center for Human Resource Research.

The same people are interviewed repeatedly, giving Zagorsky the opportunity to see how the obesity levels and wealth of respondents changed over time. Zagorsky used data from 12 NLSY surveys conducted between 1985 and 2000 All the respondents were between 21 and 28 years old in 1985.

Using each respondent's height and weight figures, Zagorsky was able to calculate their BMI scores. Scores under 18.5 are considered underweight, 18.5 to 24.9 are normal, 25 to 29.9 are overweight, and 30 or higher are considered obese.

The respondents also gave information about their net worth, which included home values, cash savings, stocks, bonds, and auto values, among other assets. Outstanding debts were subtracted from that total to arrive at net worth.

Overall, the results showed that a one unit increase in a young person's BMI was associated with a $1,300 or 8 percent reduction in wealth. But the changes varied dramatically by ethnicity and gender.

Increases in BMI had no link with the wealth of black men and were associated with small negative changes in the wealth of white men. Increases in BMI were linked to medium negative changes in wealth for Black women and large negative changes for white women.

The results suggest each category of race and gender has a different ideal BMI to maximize wealth, Zagorsky said.

White women had peak net worth at the low end of the normal range (BMI 20), white males and Black women reached peak net worth at the upper end of the normal range (BMI 24) and Black males peaked in the obese range (BMI 32).

Zagorsky emphasized that participants in this study had to lose quite a bit of weight to show strong improvements in wealth.

For example, when a typical young person decreased his or her BMI by one point, wealth increased by only $234. But when a person lost enough weight to go from the middle of the overweight category (BMI 27.5) to the middle of the normal category (BMI 21.7), wealth increased by an average of $4,085.

“If you really want to impact your wealth, you have to move from overweight or obese into the normal range,” he said. “You can't just drop 5 or 10 pounds and change your wealth.”

The data in this study can't tell us whether a person's wealth affects obesity, or whether obesity affects wealth. However, Zagorsky said it is more likely that weight influences wealth. An analysis of people in the study who received inheritances – suddenly increasing their wealth – showed no dramatic changes in their BMI scores in the following years. This suggests that wealth does not have a strong influence on weight.

However, if weight does affect wealth, there is also the question of how it does so. One possible explanation would be that overweight and obese people are discriminated against in the workforce, and don't earn as much money as normal weight people. Women, particularly white women, may be held to particularly high standards for beauty, which could explain why they gained more wealth compared to men as they lost more weight. But there is no way to tell for sure from this data, Zagorsky said.

For those of you who are overweight, is learning that you could be $4,480 to $12,720 richer by losing weight an encouraging incentive?

Hypnosis Weight Loss - Does Hypnosis Work?

The word hypnosis never fails to conjure up images of something mysterious, shady or even downright occult in the minds of most of us. Be told the word hypnosis, and in your mind’s eye you may see the silhouette of a black-hatted man waving his pocket watch back and forth. That mysterious hypnotist figure popularized in cinema, comic strips and TV. Its not difficult to reason why most people come to doubt the efficacy or otherwise of hypnosis weight loss.

Though many people believe otherwise, its true that subjects under a hypnotic spell are not really enslaved by a master who can then seize control of their actions. They may appear passive and look like they are asleep to an onlooker but are actually in a very hyper attentive state. It is in this state of high alertness that they become extremely open to suggestion. This explains to a very large extent the effectiveness of hypnosis weight loss techniques.

Do you remember the last time you where so weary and lying in bed and you had that wonderful feeling of being overcome with comfort. You then wished it could remain that way for ever. Well, the truth is - a trained hypnotherapist can help you attain that state quite easily, with your cooperation, of course. It will then be possible for him to make you visualize yourself becoming healthier, happier, richer, more confident, a non smoker or whatever. So also during a hypnosis weight loss session, the therapist can induce in you the mindset you need to lose weight, control your food cravings, exercise regularly and so on.

The rationale behind medical hypnotherapy is that the mind and body are intimately interlinked and influencing one never fails to affect the other. If you suggest to the subconscious mind that the body is free of pain or disease, it will actually bring about that change. This is the reason why thousands around the world have experienced hypnosis weight loss who never thought they could.

There is a vast deal of evidence to support the idea of hypnosis weight loss. Thanks to the power of hypnotic suggestion,innumerable women have made it through childbirth sans the pain and discomfort. It has helped manage the pain of chemotherapy in countless cancer patients. And many ex patients credit their recovery to hypnotherapy alone. The success of hypnotherapy is undeniable and finally doctors today agree that hypnosis weight loss works.

Many people do not believe in hypnosis weight loss. And there are so many others who do not even believe that hypnosis is real. However, they do admit to having drifted off whilst thinking about a loved one, forgetting large chunks of a car journey (commonly known as highway hypnosis), or “going somewhere far away” while reading a book. These are examples of natural trance states. Hypnosis weight loss is about as harmless and without any damaging side effects as any one of those.

Ex smokers and drug addicts have sworn by it. It has consistently helped solve marital problems and rectify criminal behavior. Hypnosis has also been used successfully where lie detector tests have failed! And thousands have benefited from hypnosis weight loss too.

Smoking, drinking and over-eating (the leading cause of weight gain and obesity) are bad habits caused by a malformed or wrong mindset. Proper counseling or even better, hypnotherapy with the help of a trained hipnotherapist can help you to permanently change or erase such mindsets and help you change your life for good.

Does Eating Less and Exercising More Make You Fat?

Contrary to what you would think by reading the paper or watching the news, going on fad diets and radical exercise programs will do you more harm than good.

It is part of the reason why:

* 64% of Americans are overweight, up 18% since 1994
* 25% of us are clinically obese, up 36% since 1994
* Over 40% have high cholesterol
* 50% of Americans over 65 have high blood pressure, and 28.7% overall
* 5.1% of Americans have type-2 diabetes, up a whopping 104% from 1980 to 2004
* Over 100,000,000 Americans have metabolic syndrome, which is one small step away from type-2 diabetes
* 92% of Americans are deficient in one or more essential vitamins and minerals

Many of the people in these categories fell for the "eat less, exercise more" myth.

How can I call this a myth?

It's only logical, right? It makes sense that putting less calories in and burning more calories would be a great weight loss plan - right?


Here's why: when you eat less, you slow down your metabolism. A slower metabolism makes it harder to lose weight...not easier.


Well, when you eat less, your body thinks it's starving.

What happens next helps explain why most diets fail: Your body will do anything possible to ensure that you won't starve it to death. So less calories in actually slows down your metabolism, which is the opposite of what you want.

The result?

Your appetite increases sharply because your brain thinks it is not getting enough food so it will tease you into eating more next time you eat.

You end up gaining, not losing, weight.

Weight you lose on a starvation diet is only 1/2 fat...the other half is muscle. And, once again, losing muscle actually slows your metabolism (muscle cells burn far more calories than fat cells).

You now have the double whammy effect and you are slowing your metabolism down in 2 different ways.

Keep losing weight and regaining it (the "yo-yo" dieting effect) and you're really messing up your body's metabolism.

So what about exercise?
When you exercise hard, you'll burn lots of calories... that part IS correct. But, when you burn more calories than you take in (due to dieting or starvation), your body gets confused.

Just like eating less puts your body into starvation mode, intense exercise makes your brain think you're starving it - and your metabolism (again) will slow down.

You now have 3 different factors that will destroy your body's ability to lose weight properly - and keep it off.

So, what is the solution?
Hypnosis. The all-natural, gentler way to reprogram your mind and body to lose weight.

No pills - no diets - no extra exercise.

It is all about the proper balance between body and mind.

When you get it right you will experience long term weight loss and a permanent boost to your self confidence and feeling of inner strength.

There is a much healthier way to lose and keep off any weight you don't want.

There are download hypnosis Mp3s available for various approaches to weight loss eg motivation, healthier eating, think slim etc. and the results are nothing short of exceptional.

Excess Abdominal Fat - a Serious Danger Beyond Vanity Issues

Article by Mike Geary at Truth About Abs

Did you know that the vast majority of people in this day and age have excess abdominal fat? The first thing that most people think of is that their extra abdominal fat is simply ugly, is covering up their abs from being visible, and makes them self conscious about showing off their body.

However, what most people don't realize is that excess abdominal fat in particular, is not only ugly, but is also a dangerous risk factor to your health. Scientific research has clearly determined that although it is unhealthy in general to have excess body fat throughout your body, it is also particularly dangerous to have excess abdominal fat.

There are two types of fat that you have in your abdominal area. The first type that covers up your abs from being visible is called subcutaneous fat and lies directly beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscles.

The second type of fat that you have in your abdominal area is called visceral fat, and that lies deeper in the abdomen beneath your muscle and surrounding your organs. Visceral fat also plays a role in giving certain men that "beer belly" appearance where their abdomen protrudes excessively but at the same time, also feels sort of hard if you push on it.

Both subcutaneous fat and visceral fat in the abdominal area are serious health risk factors, but science has shown that having excessive visceral fat is even more dangerous than subcutaneous fat. Both of them greatly increase the risk your risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, sleep apnea, various forms of cancer, and other degenerative diseases.

Part of the reason visceral fat is particularly dangerous is that it apparently releases more inflammatory molecules into your system on a consistent basis.

If you care about the quality of your life and your loved ones, reducing your abdominal fat should be one of your TOP priorities! There's just no way around it. Besides, a side effect of finally getting rid of all of that excessive ugly abdominal fat is that your stomach will flatten out, and if you lose enough stomach fat, you will be able to visibly see those sexy six pack abs that everyone wants.

So what gets rid of extra abdominal fat? Is there actually a REAL solution beyond all of the gimmicks and hype that you see in ads and on commercials for "miracle" fat loss products?

The first thing you must understand is that there is absolutely NO quick fix solution. There are no pills or supplements of any sort that will help you lose your abdominal fat faster. Also, none of the gimmicky ab rockers, rollers, or ab belts will help get rid of abdominal fat either. You can't spot reduce your stomach fat by using any of these worthless contraptions. It simply doesn't work that way.

The ONLY solution to consistently lose your abdominal fat and keep it off for good is to combine a sound nutritious diet full of unprocessed natural foods with a properly designed strategic exercise program that stimulates the necessary hormonal and metabolic response within your body. Both your food intake as well as your training program are important if you are to get this right.

I've actually even seen a particular study that divided thousands of participants into a diet-only group and an exercise & diet combined group. While both groups in this study made good progress, the diet-only group lost significantly LESS abdominal fat than the diet & exercise combined group.

Now the important thing to realize is that just any old exercise program will not necessarily do the trick. The majority of people that attempt getting into a good exercise routine are NOT working out effectively enough to really stimulate the loss of stubborn abdominal fat. I see this everyday at the gym.

Most people will do your typical boring ineffective cardio routines, throw in a little outdated body-part style weight training, and pump away with some crunches and side bends, and think that they are doing something useful for reducing their abdominal fat. Then they become frustrated after weeks or months of no results and wonder where they went wrong.

Well, the good news is that I've spent over a decade researching this topic, analyzing the science, and applying it "in the trenches" with myself as well as thousands of my clients from all over the world to see what works to really stimulate abdominal fat loss. I want to help you succeed in finally getting rid of that extra abdominal fat that is not only UGLY, but also DANGEROUS.

Don't waste another day allowing that nasty abdominal fat to kill your confidence as well as contribute to your risk for MAJOR diseases.

The only reason most people fail in their fitness goals is that they have good intentions at first to adopt a new lifestyle, yet after a few weeks or months, they abandon their good intentions and slip right back into their old bad habits that gave them the excess body fat in the first place.

10 New Year Resolutions for Those Who Want to Lose Weight

Do you want to lose weight? If so, now is the time to incorporate your weight loss goals into your New Year’s resolution. Although many individuals make the resolution to lose weight, you may want to take a different approach. Yes, still have your main goal be weight loss, but create many small, New Year resolutions. When you focus on specific areas of weight loss, instead of just being overweight, you are more likely to see success.

So, what are some good weight loss New Year resolutions?

1 – Eat Healthy
Eating healthy is an easy way to lose weight. In fact, it requires little or no physical effort on your part. Instead of snacking on a package of cookies, opt for a handful of grapes or an apple. Eliminate calorie rich soft drinks from your diet or opt for diet versions instead. Reduce your portion sizes. If this is difficult, start eating with a smaller plate.

2 – Don’t Bring Junk Food into Your Home
Saying you want to eat healthy is fine, but actually doing so is another thing. If you have a weakness for junk food, it is unlikely you will be able to eat healthily if you still have junk food in your home. So, eliminate it. This will take a lot of resilience at the grocery store, but avoid aisles or sections that have your favorite junk foods. If you only have healthy foods in your home, you will have no choice but to eat healthily. So, make one of your New Year resolutions to rid your home of junk food and keep it that way.

3 – Stay Away from Diet Food Aisles
As previously stated, you want to keep junk food out of your home, but you don’t need diet food. Look for foods that are healthy, such as fruits and vegetables. In terms of packaged and processed foods, always opt for those with low calories and low fat. Of course, you can buy diet foods, but know that you are paying more for brand name than anything else.

4 – Exercise
Aside from healthy eating, the next most important component of weight loss is exercise. In terms of exercise, you have many different options. You can go for walks outside, purchase a gym membership, or do exercise videos in the comfort of your own home.

Those who already exercise, but still want to lose weight are encouraged to increase their workouts. Add an extra 15 minutes or opt for workouts that are more intensive.

5 – Walk More
When you walk, you are getting exercise. With that said, it isn’t always referred to as an exercise routine, but that doesn’t mean it can’t become one. If you are looking to lose weight, make one of your mini New Year resolutions to walk more. Park in the back of the car parking lot, take the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator and walk down the street to the post office instead of driving. The more you walk the more calories you burn.

6 – Get a Workout Buddy
If you are serious about losing weight and have more than 10 pounds to lose, it can be difficult. You will not experience an immediate weight loss. And, when you do lose weight, it can be difficult to keep it off. For that reason, get a workout buddy. This person will be your support. Whether you and your workout buddy exercise together daily or meet weekly for updates, this support can help you turn your New Year resolution into a reality.

7 – Buy an MP3 Player
If you don’t already have an MP3 player, buy one. They are very affordable now. You do not need to have the latest iPod. Instead, opt for a cheap MP3 player.

8 – Use Your MP3 Player
Not only do you want to buy an MP3 player, but use it. One of the many reasons why people stop exercising is because they are bored. Use iTunes or another legal music program to purchase and download your favorite music. Listen to it when working out. Or download hypnosis Mp3s on losing weight or other positive changes you might want to make.

9 – Talk to Your Doctor
If you are overweight or obese, you may fear going to do the doctor. After all, who wants a lecture on the dangers of being overweight? Don’t feel this way. Instead, make the resolution to schedule an appointment with your primary care physician. He or she can help you devise the perfect weight loss plan.

10 – Don’t Give Up
