Men over 40 must eat wisely to achieve weight loss goals

Food is going to be an important part of your changing dietary habits. We find ourselves getting off track due to our schedules, starting from our teens through our 40th year. You are going to need to learn to eat conscientiously again. Your weight loss programshould consist of the right foods, at the right times, and most importantly prepared the right way.

The first task is to realize that you are probably not eating enough. Going all day and finally eating a large dinner or skipping breakfast are two of the most common mistakes men make before starting their weight loss programs. Training yourself to eat means taking time to make sure you get your meals in, including two or three snacks a day.

Their diet plan will instruct you on how to prepare your snacks ahead of time so that you can grab them before you run out the door for work. The best weight loss programs will make it easy to make the right choices at a lunch or dinner with your client when you eat out at a restaurant.

Recommended weight loss programs

A study entitled “A Dietary Quality Comparison of Popular Weight-Loss Plan” in the October 2007 issue (Vol 107, Issue 10) of Journal of the American Dietetic Association compared the attributes of eight weight loss plans which were chosen by their popularity as determined by The New York Times Bestseller list. The eight weight loss programs were, The New Glucose Revolution, Atkins Diet, South Beach Diet phases two and three, Dean Ornish Eat More, Weigh Less and Zone diets as well as Weight Watchers because it is the largest commercial weight loss plan. The USDA 2005 Food Guide Pyramid was also included since it is the current government-issued guideline (until the new guidelines are released in Fall 2010).

The study by Yunsheng Ma, MD, PhD concluded, “the vegetarian Ornish diet comes in first, followed by Weight Watchers High Carbohydrate and The New Glucose Revolution. The Atkins Diet finishes in last place and the 2005 Food Guide Pyramid ends up somewhere in the middle.”

The two best diets chosen require you to eat a higher fiber diet consisting of mainly fresh vegetables and whole grains. They focused on the dietary guidelines of the government’s new food pyramid, the Alternate Healthy Eating Index (AHEI), to determine the best able guide to prevent cardiovascular disease and sustainable weight control.

The older we get the harder it is to lose weight. That is why a weight loss program for men over 40 needs to be looked at more as a lifestyle change. With all the information out there you really need to think about finding a weight loss program that will give you a solid structure to follow. Having a definite diet plan that you commit to will allow you to achieve better weight loss than those without a plan. In the beginning, let the little successes motivate you to continue your quest to change your body for the better. Remember that commercial weight loss programs can help because of the tools they have such as journals and member forums with people to talk to keep you motivated.

The bottom line is that there are a lot of men who are 40+ who are dealing with the desire to lose weight and keep themselves healthy. Hopefully you will be one of the ones who are successful at reaching your weight loss goals and sustaining them for once and for all.

How To Get Best Results From Clenbuterol?

Clenbuterol has been proclaimed as a wonder drug for people aiming to attain size zero figure. It is also rumored that some the celebrities of the showbiz with best figures owe it to Clen to keep it that way. More and more people of the fairer sex go for to buy Clenbuterol to burn off the extra flab and are quite successful in achieving it. Some complain that it is not working for them. These people probably are not following some of the do’s and don’ts while they are into Clenbuterol.

First you should know what Clenbuterol is. Clenbuterol is basically a drug used for respiratory problems such as Asthma, but due its ability to work as a stimulant in increasing heart rate, sweating and blood pressure it is used to burn off the extra deposit of fat and render a slimmed down body with lean muscles.

Before you prepare to use this for weight loss you should observe the following rules for effective results.

1. Practicing the habit of consuming healthy food during the course will considerably increase the process of weight loss. Eating extra calorie laden items and idling the time hanging around the TV will have adverse effects even though you are on Clenbuterol. Most people who eat fat and carbohydrate rich food items end up with poor results.

2. Another thing you do is pay attention to the intake of water per day. Since Balkan’s Pharmaceuticals Clenbuterol has the tendency to increase your sweating you may end up dehydrated. This may some time lead to fatality. You must drink plenty of water even if you don’t like it. Water is essence of life and you know what happens when a plant is not regularly watered.

3. You should be off from vices like alcohol, smoke and drugs. These are hardly life inducing practices. Consuming alcohol in excess will naturally increase your heart rate and perspiration level, which in turn will lead to dehydration. Keep the drinks at a moderate level. Taking drugs and smoking also produce similar kind of results.

4. While you are on Clen you should reduce the amount of time you dedicate for exercising. Light jogging or walking activities should be undertaken. If you are regular at the gym then keep away for a few days.

5. Clenbuterol is a powerful drug and it is administered in micrograms. The intake should be as per your doctor’s prescription and not as per your whims.
By following the above regime you should be able to get best results for using Clenbuterol (Kalpa Pharmaceuticals Clenbutaxyl). If during the course at any time you find intolerable side effects of clen, stop the course and consult your doctor.

Want To Lose Weight? Laser Your Gut !

We all know blokes are prone to putting on the pounds around our guts.  We know its not good for our health but mores the point we don’t like it, our partners don’t like it, and now there appears to be a way of getting rid of it that is painless, quick and doesn’t involve diets or exercise – sound too good to be true?  Read on …
fat reduction
Lasers have been used in a wide range of medical procedures for years.  Rodrigo Neira, a plastic surgeon, noticed in 2001, that if he shone a laser at a culture of fat cells, the laser emulsified the tissue.  He reported his findings to the second South American Congress on Plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Later he showed that shining the laser onto fat tissue made fat tissue easier to remove by liposuction.  These findings were reported in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal (Vol. 22, p. 451).

The next step was to see if lasered fat cells would cause a loss of weight without liposuction.  The results were promising and reported in the journal Lasers in Surgery and Medicine (Vol. 41, p. 799).  The average lasered person lost 3.51 inches of girth.

The lasers seem to cause holes to form in the fat cell membranes. This allows the fat into the intercellular spaces.  It is then claimed that this fat is then harmlessly cleared by the body.

Although this technology is still relatively new and unproven by medical standards, it is now available.  It is not cheap though, a 20 minute laser consultation costs approximately £250 … but the provider Harley Fit claim you can loose up to seven inches in one treatment.

From my perspective, I am convinced the lasers do emulsify the fat which then passes through the body naturally.  The problem is that it may not destroy the fat cells themselves.

Fat cells work like a ratchet system; our bodies can produce new ones, but not destroy old ones.  This system will suffer from the Achilles heel of all fat reduction systems; it will trick the body into believing it is in starvation mode, and the fat may just pile back on.

If the results justify the hype, this truly is a remarkable breakthrough.  To hold on to your gains though, you are will still have to address your eating and exercising habits.

Obesity, Shrinking Brains, And Why Diets Don’t Work

Like most middle aged men, I struggle to balance the delights of eating with the disappointment of my waist line. I hire a personal trainer three times a week; I eat loads of fruit and veg, and am on a low saturated fat diet (to curb my concerning cholesterol levels). Despite this I continue to buy trousers that are too tight for me on the assumption that ‘at some time in the near future’, the new me, no, the real me, will return, and I will be able to fit into them. The gold standard of a washboard stomach seems as unattainable now as it ever has been.

I am not obese by the way. Nor am I fat. My body mass index shows I am ‘normal’. My point is that keeping it at ‘normal’ is something that I have to prioritise and make time for. Exercise and good eating doesn’t happen by accident. They are hard won habits that have taken years to build.

I have a real sense of empathy for my clients whose goal it is to loose weight. My weight once spiralled out of control. It happened ‘by accident’ and when I ‘wasn’t paying attention’. Suddenly I was fat, and had no real awareness of it happening. I turned my attitude around quickly to address the problem, but it still took two years to get back in shape. Of course I had a choice at that point. I saw how all too easy it would have been to rationalise being overweight, and continue with the cosy, exercise free and chocolate rich lifestyle I had been enjoying.

Over the years I have noticed that many of my overweight clients have reached this tipping point and chose to continue eating. This is a painful option, of course, as it feeds into the man’s sense of guilt and shame, poor body image and low self worth. Eating then takes on a different symbolic meaning. It becomes the way one punishes oneself and perpetuates self loathing.

Paradoxically, it seems to me that the constant health warnings about being overweight just seem to embolden this self destructive cycle of eating as self abuse. The latest one is truly shocking. Brain regions that are important to thinking processes are 6% smaller in overweight people and 8% smaller in obese people. The reports author, Paul Thomson, cited in the New Scientist claims that the brains of obese people look 16 years older than lean controls (see New Scientist, 22 August, 2009).

But what is a person to do to combat obesity? This, of course, is a huge area of academic interest. As our populations are getting heavier and heavier, and obesity costing the economy more and more, the importance of finding answers to this question is becoming more pressing.

One finding that does seem to be coming through load and clear from the research is this: diets don’t work. I see this with the clients of my personal trainer. He puts them on a low calorie diet and vastly increases their expenditure of energy through exercise. Very often the strategy is successful in the short term. He often beams with pride as he tells me of a client who has lost 15 pounds or even 30 pounds. But in the medium term the weight simply piles back on. One person slimmed down only to put three stone back on while on a cruise.

The bottom line with weight loss is eat less and exercise more, but why is dieting so ineffective in the medium to long term? There are lots of reasons suggested for this, some physiological some psychological. My take on this is that the body can increase the number of fat cells in order to put on weight. The trouble is fat cells cannot be destroyed by the body. Weight therefore works like a ratchet system, always building the capacity to get bigger, but never smaller. The significance of this is that when you loose weight your body ‘feels’ like it is in starvation mode (as all your fat cells are now showing as ‘not full’) and this makes cravings for high calories foods more likely.

In short, once you have been overweight, in order to keep weight off you need to radically re-thing your approach to food and how you respond to cravings. This is not an easy process, and requires time and effort. Fortunately you don’t have to use a therapist to start along this process. Some of my clients have gained great benefit from an online course called Food Philosophy. It aims to educate you in food psychology so you are armed with the tools you need to change the way you think about food.

My approach to working with clients is similar. I start with understanding the person’s relationship to food. I don’t even like starting with a target weight loss. By changing the assumptions and habits of the person, I hope to bring about lasting and sustainable weight loss through subtle behavioural change. In an industry that thrives on quick fixes, my approach can seem long winded. I firmly believe, though, that sustainable weight loss in people with chronic obesity cannot be achieved without this kind of patient work.
