Why Most Diets Fail!

The 3 Week Diet

There’s a simple reason why most diets fail — they do not produce results fast enough.

It’s no fun to eat small portions of food that don’t satisfy our hunger cravings. It’s no fun to go to the gym day after day — and when you are doing all of this and the scale is barely budging, it can be incredibly discouraging.

It can make you want to give up altogether or try a different plan.

Personal trainer and health and nutrition coach Brian Flatt has seen this scenario play out again and again and it has affected the way he approaches weight loss with his clients.

“For a diet to be successful, I truly believe that the diet must produce visible and significant results fast,” Flatt said. “When the dieter sees real results quickly, he or she becomes more engaged. And when I can get the dieter engaged by seeing real results, a ‘snowball effect’ occurs; results get better and better as dieters see themselves getting leaner and leaner.”

To help dieters lose weight fast and avoid falling victim to discouragement, Flatt has created a new diet program that he calls The 3 Week Diet. He is now making this program available online to the general public because of the amazing success his clients have had with it.The 3 Week Diet

“On this program, dieters notice favorable body composition changes in the first couple of days,” Flatt said. “In the very first week alone, dieters are likely to see in the neighborhood of 10 pounds of fat stripped away from their body. Their clothes will be looser, they will feel lighter and they’ll feel 10 times better.”

So why is Flatt’s program able to produce such rapid weight loss?

The 3 Week Diet focuses on providing dieters with only the essential nutrients that their body needs for good health and proper functioning, while eliminating all those nutrients that slow or even stop them from burning fat.

More specifically, the diet program addresses a body’s hormones, and how those hormones affect the body’s ability to burn fat and lose weight. Dieters get a specifically tailored, step-by-step blueprint that tells them what to eat, how much to eat, and when to eat for the absolute best weight loss results.

The program also utilizes several supplements that — in combination with the diet — helps users recruit body fat to be burned for fuel, maintain their lean body mass, and increase their metabolism.

All of this is included in a simple, straightforward, step-by-step presentation that doesn’t require a doctorate to follow.

“It’s true that fast results are the key to sustained weight loss, but a successful weight loss program must also be easy to follow,” Flatt said. “Complicated, overly stringent plans drive people away.”

So to recap, according to Flatt, if you really want to lose weight and keep it off, you need a plan that both produces fast results and is easy to follow.

He believes that he has created that program with The 3 Week Diet. To learn more about the program and determine if it could be the solution that allows you to finally lose weight and keep it off, please Get it Now!.

Body Building Anatomy

The anatomy of body building includes knowing what muscles are located where and how they are grown most effectively. It can be confusing, so as you read this article, find a mirror and locate the muscles on your own body. When you are body building, knowing the anatomy of your body can be very, very helpful.

Of course, you know where your neck is. There are two basic neck muscles that you can focus on in your body building. The upper trapezius runs down the back of your neck from the nape of the neck to the shoulder. The levator scapulae runs next to the first five or six cervical vertebrae in your neck.

 

The trapezius muscles run down your back from the nape of your neck to the waist on either side of the spine. In body building terms, these muscles are referred to as the trap muscles.

The deltoid muscles are located in your shoulders. The anterior delt is in the front part of the shoulder, the middle delt runs down the side of the shoulder, the posterior deltoid muscles runs down the back part of the shoulder. The rotator cuff muscle runs just below the anterior delt from the armpit straight out.

The muscles in your chest are the pectoral muscles.

Your tricep muscles are located in your arms. They run down the sides of the arms from shoulder to elbow. The biceps, on the other hand are located on the inside of the arm. There are also very distinct muscles in the forearms.

Your abs are located in the stomach area – or abdominal region hence their name!

In the legs, you have the quadriceps muscles in the front – or quads. The muscles in the back of the legs are located in the calf, or lower leg, and hamstring which is the upper leg.

Other major muscle groups you will want to focus on include glutes – or the buttocks, the lats which are in the upper back, and the lower trap muscles which is the lower back.

Knowing your anatomy when you undertake a body building program is a very important part of effectively growing your muscles. When you know the various muscle groups in your anatomy, you can build those muscles and concentrate on them during your workouts. In body building, knowledge of human anatomy isn’t difficult when you know what you are looking for. Know your muscles and succeed in your body building goals.

4 Health Problems Of An Obese Child Does Your Child Have Them

Obesity is dangerous enough with adults but the health problem of obese child can be even more frightening because they are showing up much earlier in life. What used to be considered almost exclusively the health problems of middle age are now becoming very common in younger children and teens.

If a child has too much body fat they are considered obese. A child is considered obese if their body mass index (BMI) is in the 95 percentile, or above, for their age and gender. While some obesity can be genetic the vast majority of overweight children are overweight for the same reasons so many adults are: too much of the wrong types of food and not enough exercise.

Just like with overweight adults, obese children are very prone to many health issues:

1. High blood pressure and high cholesterol. These two health issues are the leading cause of heart disease and an obese child is far more likely to have heart disease when they reach early adulthood! Again, what used to be considered more of a middle age ailment will often strike an obese child in their early twenties or thirties. A recent study found that obese children had the same type of plaque buildup in their arteries as what a 45 year old would have.

2. Children who are obese also have a much higher chance of developing onset diabetes. A study found that obese children are up to two times more likely to have diabetes than children of the same age that weren’t overweight. This early onset of diabetes can mean a lifetime of health issues and can frequently cause kidney disease and even blindness.

3. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics up to 35 % of obese children have sleep apnea. This disorder causes someone to stop breathing for a few seconds at a time while they are asleep. Up until recently this was only found in adults. Sleep apnea can lead to many issues, the most obvious of which is not getting enough sleep. This lack of sleep in a child can cause difficulties in school and learning disabilities in a developing child.

4. Depression is also common in obese children. Obese children are often mocked and ridiculed by other kids at school which can lead to low self esteem and eventually behavioral problems and trouble in school.

Childhood obesity is a very serious medical, and emotional, issue and is certainly not something that should be ignored as ‘just a phase’. The good news is that many of the health problem of obese child can be reversed once the child loses weight.

It’s really not as hard as it may seem. Encourage your kid to go outside and play, everyday, for at least 30 minutes. Also getting rid of the fast food and processed food can help a lot. Kids will often mimic what they see their parents doing so you can get a two for one: you can spend more time exercising and eating right which will help your child to develop healthier habits and that way you’ll both benefit as well as share some great together time!

Tight Abs for the Obese

Everyone wants the tight abs look that we see on movie stars and athletes. When people think of how to get tight abs they almost always think of sit ups or crunches. That is only half of the equation though.

The truth is that no matter how strong your abdominal muscles are, if they’re covered by a layer of fat no one will see them. To get great abs you need to combine exercises that will tone your abdominal muscles as well as help you increase your heart rate and lose fat. If your are obese you will have added challenges, but there are some abdominal exercises for obese people that can help.

It’s important to keep in mind that your abdominal area consists of several different muscle groups. You have lower muscles, upper muscles, and oblique (side) muscles. To get a really hot midsection you’ll need to do different exercises so that you are targeting all these areas.

If you are really overweight it may be difficult to get down on the floor and work your abs. Not to worry, though, there are easy ab workouts that you can do standing up, you won’t lose any effectiveness but you will save a lot of wear and tear on your back and knees.

Standing Abs Exercises:

Here are some ideas of standing ab exercises that you can try today. Make sure you talk to your doctor first to make sure it’s OK:

Work on Balance

1. The first standing ab exercise you can try is to stand with your feet shoulder width apart. Raise your arms straight above your head, slowly lower your arms while simultaneously raising one of your knees. Keep your leg and arms at a 90 degree angle, put that leg down while raising your arms back up and alternate the same thing with the other leg. Do at least 30 sets on each side.

Loosen Joints

2. Stand with your legs shoulder width apart. Take a step forward with one leg, carefully lift the leg that is forward a few inches off the floor. Slowly make circles using just your foot – try to keep the leg still and straight. Make 20 circles in one direction then (using the same foot) circle 20 times in the other direction, then alternate with the other leg.

Build Strength

3. Stand with your legs shoulder width apart. Hold a 10 to 20 pound dumbbell in each hand, slowly lean to one side keeping your legs straight  (this move should only involve your side abdominal muscles). After you’ve completed 20 reps on one side, do the other side.

It’s not that easy to learn how to do an exercise just by reading an article. But these standing abdominal exercises I’ve listed above will give you an idea of where to start. Just remember that even if you are very overweight, there are still abdominal exercises for obese people that can help you tone those all important ab muscles.

Talk to your doctor before you start any exercise plan . And if possible find yourself a personal trainer. They can watch you and make sure you are using the proper form. Otherwise you may injure yourself and that will only slow down your weight loss efforts.

10 Ingredients in Weight Loss Pills

Looking for help with losing weight? Help that goes beyond the usual lifestyle changes, portion control advice and exercise routines? Weight-loss supplements touting names like “fat burner” and “thermo max” can be enticing. But do they work? And even more important, in the wake of the Food and Drug Administration’s recent ban on ephedra, are they safe?

In this article, Environmental Nutrition provides a snapshot of 10 of the most popular ingredients currently in supplements for weight loss.

Chitosan
Made from the shells of lobsters, shrimp and other shellfish, chitosan is an indigestible fiber. It is supposed to help weight loss by binding with the fat you eat, blocking its absorption. However, studies do not support this claim. Side effects include constipation and gas. People with shellfish allergies should beware.

Chromium
Most often present as chromium picolinate, it has been promoted to boost lean mass and decrease body fat. Though study findings have been inconclusive, an analysis of several studies recently concluded that supplementing with 200 to 400 micrograms of chromium picolinate could result in about a 2.5-pound weight loss per week in some people. Other studies have found a loss of body fat and an increase in muscle tissue, with no change in weight. Still others have found no effect at all. Some laboratory studies have raised safety issues, a large number of human studies suggest it is safe.

Citrus Aurantium (Bitter Orange)
This herbal extract is a natural source of synephrine (a compound similar to ephedrine) and the supplement industry’s current answer to the ephedra ban. But there are no published studies to show it is an effective supplement for weight loss. And like ephedra, its side effects include an increase in blood pressure; Environmental Nutrition recommends avoiding it.

Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)
Both animal and human research hints at a possible role for CLA in reducing body fat and increasing lean body mass, but it’s not quite ready for prime time. None of the human studies have been long-term. CLA is currently being studied in combination with chromium picolinate. CLA is found naturally in dairy foods and beef and is generally considered safe.

Garcinia Cambogia
The extract from Garcinia cambogia fruit rind contains hydroxycitric acid (HCA), which supposedly curbs food intake, weight gain and storage of excess calories as fat. However, studies have failed to prove G. cambogia is an effective weight-loss aid. The most common side effects are upper respiratory and gastrointestinal symptoms.

Guarana
Caffeine is the effective ingredient in guarana plant seeds. Guarana may have a mild appetite suppressant effect over the short term. It was often used in combination with ephedra until ephedra was banned. The potential side effects are those of caffeine overdose—insomnia, restlessness, anxiety or panic.

Hydroxymethylbutyrate (HMB)
HMB is a natural byproduct of the breakdown of the amino acid leucine. HMB supplements are used by body builders in hopes of increasing muscle mass. A few small studies have suggested that HMB increases lean mass and decreases body fat when combined with weight training. However, studies with overweight and obese people are needed.

Plantago Psyllium
Psyllium is a water-soluble fiber from Plantago ovato seeds. Taken before a meal, it may make you feel full, causing you to eat less. While it is proved to aid constipation (that’s how Metamucil works), it has not been proved as an effective weight-loss aid.

Pyruvate
Pyruvate formulas boast that they stimulate metabolism and reduce body fat. Pyruvate is found naturally in food and in the body as a result of the breakdown of carbohydrates and protein. Some studies have shown a weight-loss benefit with pyruvate supplements. But the people in the studies also exercised and cut back on calories. Moreover, the dosage used in the studies was high, requiring a handful of tablets each day. Experts say the case for pyruvate to aid weight loss is weak.

Yerba mate
Brewed into a tea, bitter Yerba mate is high in caffeine. Used in combination with other caffeine-containing herbs, like guarana and damiana, it was found in one study to delay stomach emptying time and aid weight loss. The study was short (45 days), so conclusions on keeping the weight off cannot be made.

The Bottom Line

Though all are relatively expensive and none are proved, of these top popular weight-loss contenders, chromium picolinate and CLA are probably the most studied. If you’ve already made up your mind to go the supplement route, you might want to give them a try. Just don’t expect miracles and check with your doctor first.
