QuickTips for Healthy Weight Loss


More than any other time in history, people are all vying to have the best, healthiest body. The health and fitness industries are making billions of dollars every year on herbal supplements , fitness equipment, gyms, and special diets. If you watch TV or read magazines, there is always some intriguing commercial asking for money to help you get into shape.

While many of these options are good and healthy, others you should stay as far away from as possible. Recently, a professional baseball player died at the age of 23. In his locker, a bottle was discovered containing Ephedrine. The FDA issued a warning that people need to heed.

It is critical to your overall health that you do it the right way. Here are some tips for both health and fitness that will help you lose weight, discover ways to maintain a better healthy lifestyle, and be in the best shape of your life - all the smart way!

Everyone knows, whether they want to admit it or not, reducing calories will help you to lose weight. However, just as you should reduce the calorie intake, you need to know when to eat.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and the one meal that should not be missed. Lunch should be healthy but a less than what you ate for breakfast. As you approach dinner, eat healthy but light. Avoid after dinner snacks or eating before bed!

While some supplements and vitamins on the market are not worth buying and have been proven dangerous, other sources such as Hoodia Gordonii could prove more healthy. Most important, you need to understand what it is you are taking, and strictly follow dosage just as you would medication that has been prescribed. If you are unsure, check with your doctor, a nutritionist, or a reputable qualified professional.

Many supplements that are good for overall health include grape seed extract,aloe vera, and Selenium. Vitamins to consider would include Vitamin E, Vitamin C, B-12, Iron, Magnesium, and Calcium.

People often confuse "dieting" with nutrition. Your body needs to have nutrients replaced, whether ideally through foods being eaten or supplements. Do you remember what you learned in elementary school about the four major food groups? As an adult, eating balanced meals from these groups still applies. It is important to remove the "junk food" from your diet as much as possible and stick with healthy foods.

If you really do not like certain foods such as fruits or vegetables, be sure you are taking a supplement to get the nutrients needed. Another consideration is if you are a vegetarian.There are certain benefits taken from meat such as iron and B-12 that you should consider taking a supplement for in exchange for the meat.

When you think about losing weight, more importantly than weight is the amount of fat you are carrying around. This fat is measured with what is called Body Mass Index, or BMI. For women, if you are fit, your percent of body fat should range from 21% to 31%. If you are in incredible shape, that could be as low as 10%. For men, fit should be between 14% and 25%, and excellent shape, as low as 2%.

To calculate your body fat, write down how much you weigh (be honest - no one will see this but you). Multiply your weight by 703. Next, write down your height, in inches. Multiply by that same number. Then you will divide your weight number by your height number. That is your BMI. For example, if your weight were 150 pounds x 703, your weight answer would be 105,450. If your height is 5'4", that would be 64 inches x 64 for a total of 4,096. Taking the 105,450 divided by 4,096, you come out with a BMI of 25.7.

The figure 25 is ideal, more is considered overweight. A value in excess of 35 indicates severe obesity and weight loss is important. Many people with a value this high can end up suffering from diabetes without sheeding this excess weight.

If you could reduce your calorie intake over time with the help of Hoodia Gordonii, you will lose weight and cut the risk of health problems.
