Fight Obesity with Weigh Loss Programs

Written by lyricsmama on August 20, 2012 – 9:53 PM -

In recent years, government has become aware of the various health problems attributable to obesity. Diabetes and heart disease have always been associated with weight problems, but recent research shows a myriad of other diseases and ailments brought on by being overweight.

The problems not only limit the productivity of obese individuals, but also add to healthcare costs. The RTI International says that medical expenditures attributable to obesity have doubled in the last decade, and they are expected to reach $147 billion in the near future.

Causes of Obesity

Surgeon General Rear Admiral Steven Galson attributes childhood obesity to improper diet and lack of exercise. Most researchers would be content to believe that by controlling these two aspects of our lives, we could control our weight problems. However, a research group at the University of Alabama at Birmingham suggests ten other causes as follows:

Sleep Debt

Getting too little sleep

Pollution Hormones control weight, and pollutants affect hormones

Air Conditioning

Calories are burned in environments that are too hot or too cold.

Decreased smoking Nearly everyone gains weight when he or she quits smoking

Medicines Various medicines cause weight increases.

Population Age, Ethnicity

People tend to gain weight as they get older. Hispanic Americans tend to be more obese than other ethnic groups.

Older Moms

Research indicates that the older a woman is when she gives birth increases her child’s risk to be obese.

Ancestor’s Environment

Environmental changes that made a grandparent obese may cause a grandchild to be obese

Obesity Linked to Fertility

Obese people are more fertile than lean people. If obesity is genetic, obesity will increase in the population.

Unions of Obese Spouses

Obese women marry obese men. If obesity is genetic, obesity increases in the population.

Methods of Treating Weight Loss

Some people are able to lose weight by exercising regularly. Others may be successful by limiting the portions of food that they eat. Many combine diets with regular exercise.

Unfortunately, many other people must use a weight loss program in order to lose weight. You have many choices.

Some weight loss programs require that you give up the foods you love, and purchase their expensive foods. How long will you need to buy their products? Will you regain the weight when you return the foods you love?

The FDA has approved some medications that suppress the appetite. Although the FDA has not approved the HCG diet, many people currently participate in it.

Sensa is an ideal program that lets you eat the foods you love, and lose the weight you hate. If you must consider a weight loss program, you should be certain that you have the self-discipline to succeed in losing weight. Check the cost, time required and success rate. Try to determine if you will get hungry using the program. Check programs like Sensa that lets you lose weight while eating the foods you love

My Total Gym Favorites #TotalMom

Written by lyricsmama on July 29, 2011 – 11:49 AM -

I can’t believe it’s been a little over a month that I’ve had the opportunity to try out the Total Gym XLS! So far, so good.. I’m LOVING IT!! Although, I haven’t been using it as much as I’d like, summer time is the worst! But when I can get on it, and use it, it motivates me even more to continue with the exercise and healthy eating.
One of my favorite exercises is the leg stretches and the times I use the Ab Crunch accessory. Using the leg pulley stretches out my legs and feels so good! It looks like something that may hurt, and you think there’ s no way my legs are going to stretch that far, but you’d be amazed what your body can do. It definitely helps out with flexibility!

The Ab Crunch accessory really helps me out on the part that needs it most. My stomach! The exercises are HARD! No way are they easy, but I find I feel the burn more doing the exercises on my Ab Crunch than I do using say an exercise ball, or ab roller to do crunches.

Those are just two of my favorite exercises, but take a peek at Christie Brinkley’s Five Favorite Total Gym Exercises:

I haven’t seen as much progress as I’d like, but that’s not saying that its because of the Total Gym not working, no way no how! It’s more because of user error and lack of time to use it. Even though, all I need is a quick 15 minutes and I can get a great workout in, I’ve been slacking and lazy all summer!

But, here’s my public promise to myself, and to my readers, especially to those who have told me I’ve motivated them, lately I haven’t so my promise is that even once my Total Gym Total Mom challenge is over at week 8, I’m going to continue with the weekly updates, weight loss progress, healthy eating tips, and even get my measurements in! Once we’re back on track schedule wise in this house, I’m back on track with my goal for myself! To get fit, healthy and to 145lbs!!
