Take fiber or suffer the consequences

By Lartinos, published on Mar 15, 2013

Many people have heard that fiber is good for you, but why exactly is fiber so good for dieting and overall health? Studies have shown fiber decreases body weight, can possibly extend life expectancy, and may even increase muscle mass. Fiber also helps regulate our bowel movements as well; That means it will help you whether you are either constipated or suffering from diarrhea, something that everyone must deal with at some point. Just knowing the benefits of fiber does not fix the problem of having a shortage of this important nutrient, we must plan ahead or there is an excellent... (more)

10 reasons why you are not losing weight!

By Lartinos, published on Jan 18, 2013

1. Rationalizing what we eat: Rationalizing is our way of making sense about things that we may not understand fully. Very often we will put stock in something that is false just because it make us feel better about not sticking to our diet. “Just one Brownie won’t hurt” Actually it will hurt you as one brownie has 39 grams of carbohydrates in which most are sugar to boot. Instead of just rationalizing everything it is better to be totally honest with your self about whether or not what we eat is actually “ok.” a sense of disconnected numbness and indifference

2. One of the biggest reasons... (more)

There I said it, I bet you haven’t heard that before. Hardcore dieters have known this for some time as they are well aware that fructose has a similarly bad effect on our bodies as table sugar. (Sucrose) If you are really serious about losing weight you must count every carb from fruit and make sure not to over do it. People only dieting for overall health and not to lose weight must also be aware of the sugar content of the fruits they eat. People falsely assume that the sugar in fruit is not bad for you. False! It has a negative effect on insulin levels when over consumed and can contribute... (more)

Burn That Fat

By Lartinos, published on Dec 4, 2012

The government is supposed to be there to help us, but very often their policies leave me wondering what their true intentions are. I have this belief because the government is not a good resource for nutritional information. That fact is proven in that they rarely ever update the information they distribute to their citizens. You never hear the government say anything more than telling you to watch your calorie count. That is obscenely vague to the point it is harmful. That is because it is now known that calories from carbs are not equal to those from protein.The truth of the matter is that... (more)

Dr. Eric Osansky on Graves' Disease and Hyperthyroidism

By JaimeM, published on Dec 5, 2011

...What's odd is that even though people know the risks of radiation, many people don't hesitate to follow the recommendations of their endocrinologist when he or she recommends radioactive iodine treatment.

What kind of natural treatments do you propose in your book? Change of diet? Exercise? Supplements?

All of the above, as modifying one's diet is definitely important in restoring one's health to normal. Exercise can be important, although one also needs to be careful not to overexert themselves. Doing a good job of managing stress is also very important, as stress can... (more)

By Cousin of Jesus, published on Nov 30, 2011

...that are best for weight loss are: Dandelion Root Tea, Fennel Tea, Ginger Tea, Peppermint Tea, Green Tea, Oolong Tea, Wu Tea, Water, 100% Ocean Spray Brand Cranberry Juice, Fat-Flush Drink (which I'll give you the recipe for later), and Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice.De-stressing and Exercise is also important, but since I have asthma and heart arrhythmia (since I was a child) it is difficult for me to work out with weights or do any kind of long distance jobs/runs. I can dance though which is a really fun way to burn calories. I enjoy taking leisure long walks about 1.5 miles once ... (more)

I Hate Yoga

By christinemer, published on Nov 10, 2011

I hate Yoga. No, I really mean I hate it. I hate the holier-than-thou attitude of those who practice it, and the way they insinuate that they are better inside because they do it. I hate the soft way people talk while they're doing it. I hate that the teachers walk around the room and talk about breathing all the time, as if that is going to rid me of the results of the pints and pints of coffee ice cream I've eaten over the course of my lifetime. Everyone knows that if your breathing isn't labored, you are not feeling the burn, which means you will not see results. Yoga people are thin, not... (more)
