Getting started with the Fat Loss Factor Diet takes on one of the most common hindrances to losing body fat. There are chemicals and toxins all around us in our environment and in our foods.  Those toxins are stored in our body in our fat cells.

Most people simply don't know how.

  • There are different options on this diet:

New Season for Biggest Loser

Now that the new season for the Biggest Loser has begun, we should all start hearing about people who are trying to lose weight along  with the contestants.  The Biggest Loser is best known for helping people to drop body fat fast or as this blog suggests, very quickly.

Diet and exercise go hand in hand to help the contestants do that. Although you can lose weight through dieting alone you can drop body fat much quicker when you also do the exercises. One thing that a lot of lay people neglect to do is

Losing Weight With an Injury

Nearly every diet or exercise program that you begin comes with instructions to check with your doctor first to be sure that you are physically able to do that program. Most people who consider themselves healthy ignore that warning. Please don't.

Sometimes you have problems of which you are not even aware. I did ignore the warning. I did have an unknown problem. I now am recovering from an injury. Unknown to me some bone spurs had developed under my kneecap. That is another way of saying that I have Arthritis. Even though supplementation had kept plenty of cartilage in there those bone spurs can wreak havoc if you try to do any high impact aerobics.

After losing 12 pounds on The Biggest Loser Diet and doing some moderate exercises, I decided to kick it up a bit.

Does the Biggest Loser Diet Work

A lot of people have watched the television show The Biggest Loser.  On this show you see contestants dropping insane amounts of weight each week.  In real life it is usually considered good if you can drop 1 to 2 pounds a week.  My friends and I have discussed this and we concluded that yeah if all that you have to do is exercise and diet 24/7 then, of course, you can lose huge numbers. In the real world, we did not think that it could be done safely. The Biggest Loser has all kinds of professionals including doctors to make sure that their contestants lose safely.

Sometime last summer I decided to order some of the Biggest Loser Diet Books to see if their diet would work for me. Like most people I was only half hearted about my commitment. The rules that made up the diet were not that difficult and the plan looked really healthy so I gave it a try.

Do You Sabotage Your Diet?

Soft ice creamImage via WikipediaHow many of you catch yourselves eating out of pure frustration? That is known as emotional eating. (something we all need to learn how to control) Below you will find a favorite recipe of mine to help with that.

Last night I had a dog that pooped all over the floor and then the furnace hung up and would not turn off. Now that could be a source of frustration, wouldn't you say?

Tips to Lose Weight

James Hetfield.OK, so you need to drop body fat and you are looking for all the tips you can get. Here is one big one. Don't drop your calories too low. Why not? If you do then you will also lower your metabolism making it almost impossible to lose those extra pounds or drop any body fat.

Weight loss = burning more calories than you consume and that means keeping your metabolism up so that you actually burn those calories instead of storing them. If you eat too few calories then your body will think that a famine is present and will conserve all that it can. So eat just under what you need for your activity level.    Image via Wikipedia

Do You Have a Lot of Weight to Lose?

I recently met a lady who used to weigh over 600 pounds. She now weighs 210. How did she lose so much weight? The answer may surprise you. Did she go on a strict diet? No she did not. She ate sensibly but nothing extreme. Did she have weight loss surgery? No, not that either. But she did have knee replacement surgery and had to walk as therapy. And walk she did. She did not want that knee to "freeze up" and become unusable. Of course, she started out slow. After surgery, you first have to learn to walk with the help of a walker before you can go it alone. But then, she gradually built up to walking three miles....three times a day.

Can you lose weight by walking? Sure you can if you use good common sense. If you load up on Ice cream, cake, pastries, sodas, chips and the like then you will find that you don't even have the strength or energy to do that extra walking. Be sensible and look for good nutrition in your foods and eat treats only
as  o c c a s i o n a l  treats.

Weight Loss Tips for Holidays and Social Events

Ok, Now that you have resolved to lose weight and get rid of your excess body fat, how are you going to handle all those birthdays? There are a lot of weight loss programs, products, and systems that you could use to drop those pounds. However, unless you are committed to the end result your efforts will be short lived. Are you going to have to go into hibernation or become anti-social to achieve your goals? No, no, absolutely no!

Remember when you were little and your mother fussed at you for snacking before mealtime? This will help you now. This time however, you must plan those snacks with low calorie foods that will simply take the edge off your appetite. A good combination would be to snack on low fat protein and veggies. Cottage cheese, mozzarella sticks, or yogurt along with some green peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, or celery are great choices. Leave some room to eat at the party but let it be controlled eating. Preparing ahead will help you. If you have some cake or ice cream keep your portions small and there is no harm done. Here is a plan that actually uses your favorite foods.

Fact is, if you will just plan ahead to eat some of your favorite foods (in moderation, of course) you are much more likely to stick to your chosen way of eating (diet) than if you can never vary from it.

Today is SuperBowl Sunday. Be prepared before your guests arrive or if you are the guest then prepare before leaving home. It is ok to be the one to take some veggies to snack on. Enjoy yourself but keep things in moderation. Decide beforehand what you will and won't do and stick to it.

How to Drop Body Fat Quickly

Starches, such as rice, potatoes, some veggies, oats, etc. are
generally regarded "health foods."While they could be wholesome,
they can also pack on belly and body fat like crazy in the event you overdo them.

As you might already know, the "Every Other Day Diet" Technique (EODD) actually encourages you to eat starches and even sweets several days a week to get rid of extra body weight:

Drop Body Fat Quickly here <-- go

Well! How does THAT work?

Simple: Timing is everything.

Hint #1
And it takes a "weekly" approach to meals rather than a daily approach. This keeps your metabolism guessing so that it does not slow down. If your body cannot determine what you're up to, fat burning is that much more powerful. And you can get by with eating starches at specific times on specific days. But if you're not going to do EODD, then you'll have to wing it. And the best way to wing it is to stop eating starches entirely for 4-8 weeks. Then slowly add them back in a few days per week. This is no where near as effective (or as fun) as the EODD method, but it will get you pointed in the right direction.

Hint # 2
Stop Drinking The Diet Sodas

Why diet-sodas? A recent study revealed that people who drank diet-sodas actually increased body fat when compared to those who drank sugar-sodas. What ?? Yep. Your body cannot be fooled by aspartame and chemicals. Sorry, but that's the truth. Here's a personal story: When the creator of EODD cut out the diet-sodas his body fat dropped like a rock in a pond of clear water. And that's what you need to be drinking: A quart of pure water per 50 lbs of body weight a time. Try mixing water with lemon and a bit of Stevia (an herbal sweetener) and make lemonade. It's wonderful!

Hint # 3
Stay Hungry.

It takes a special person to be hungry... and an even more special one to stay that way. I want you to stay hungry in two ways: In how you workout and literally.!!!. Stay just a bit hungry before you go to bed. Not "starving". Just a bit hungry. For your workouts, I have a great solution. Should you pick up EODD you'll get a limited shot at "7 Minute Body".!!!. Jon Benson's combination of "7 Minute Muscle" and "The 7 Minute In-Home Workout" in one book.!. and for more than half off.!!. but that's a very limited deal. Gotta have EODD.!!!. you'll need them both.

Drop Body Fat Quickly here <-- go

You see, progression -- "forced" progression -- is the best way to stay just a bit hungry. 7 Minute Body forces you to progress without thinking about it. Progression is built into the Technique. As far as staying hungry at night? Check with your doctor and if he/she okays it take 500mg of potassium and 1000mg of magnesium/calcium a few hours prior to bed. This helps with the hunger pangs.

Also, keep hard-boiled eggs in the fridge. Should you get really hungry, consume one with half the yolk (toss the other half.) It keeps you full for an hour at least.

Hint # 4
Be Clear About Cardio

You can do "light" cardio (i.e. brisk walking, or riding the bike at 60% of your max) just to burn off calories. That's okay. However, Hours and hours of cardio a day is not the answer. Personally I don't find it that boring if I'm watching a TV show. It does not interfere with my main fat loss exercise (weight training... YES!) and it burns off about 400 calories an hour. What does work is early morning fasting cardio... but you only need 9-15 minutes. Jon Benson explains GXP (Modified) in the 7 Minute Body book, available only if you pick up EODD, and you can get it at more than half off: Drop Body Fat Quickly here <-- go

Hint # 5
Eat Raw Veggies At Night

Raw veggies with your last meal and as a snack will really help your fat burning along. Try starting with red peppers because they're sweet. You'll soon eat virtually every veggie raw at night without thinking about it. Give this a shot. The fat loss is well worth it. P.S. Jon is still giving away "Radical Fatloss Blueprint" along with EODD for a few more days. And I'm giving a lucky few the chance to pick up the Supplement-Kit that comes with Radical Fatloss for almost 100 bucks off! the video and details are here:

Sorry... EODD Readers Only! so pick it up today.
