When you decide to go on a diet one of the first things that you will learn is that it is important to keep track of what you eat during the day. Keeping a food record makes it possible to determine the foods you are eating as well as the foods you aren't eating. For example, after keeping a food record for a few days, you might see that you are not eating very many vegetables but that you are consuming lots of sugar and bad carbohydrates. When you write every thing down you are able to see which parts of your diet must change as well as have an easier time figuring out what kind and how long of a workout you need to do to shrink your waist line and burn the most calories.

But let's say you've been writing every thing down and still aren't slimming down? There is a right way and a completely wrong way to monitor your food. There is far more to food journaling than composing a listing of what you eat during the day. You have to record some other very important information. Here are a number of points that you can use to help your food tracking be more successful.

Be as specific as you can get while you note down the things you eat. It isn't enough to only jot down "salad" on a list. The correct way to do it is always to record all of the ingredients in the salad as well as the kind of dressing that is used. You should also include the number of the foods you eat. "Cereal" seriously isn't as good an entry as "one cup Honey Nut Cheerios." Remember the more you eat of something the more calories you eat so it is very important that you list quantities so that you know exactly how much of everything you're eating and how many calories you need to burn.

Write down the time that you are consuming items. This helps you figure out when you feel the most hungry, when you are prone to snack and what you can do about it. After a day or two you may notice that, although you eat lunch at the same time every day, you still feel hungry an hour or so later. You should also be able to observe whether or not you might be eating because you're bored. This is important because, once they are revealed, you can find various other ways to fill those moments than with unhealthy foods.

What type of feelings are you in whenever you eat? Write it down! This can help you determine when you use meals to help soothe emotional issues. This will also show you whether or not you gravitate toward specific foods based on your mood. Many of us will reach for junk foods whenever we are upset, angry or depressed and will be more likely to choose healthier options when we are happy or content. When you pay attention to how you eat in the course of your different moods and psychological states, you will be able to keep similar but healthier choices around for when you need those snacks--you might also start talking to someone who can help you figure out why you try to cure your moods with food.

Keeping Track Of Precisely What You Take In: How To Do It Correctly

How to Burn 500 Calories A Day To Lose Weight
Understanding the calorie count 

In most online weight loss programs, the safe guideline is to lose a pound weekly, at most two for extreme cases. In order to understand what that translates to, we must understand how calories are calculated in online weight loss programs.

1 pound of fat is translated to 3500 calories. Hence, in order to lose 1 pound of fat weekly, you must at least burn an extra 500 calories daily on top of your daily regime. You may be surprised to know that, but we are burning calories every minute even when we are resting. Even on a lazy day where all you do is linger in your house, occupy the couch in front of the TV, getting up every now and then for a short trip to the fridge for soda, your body will still burn up to 2,000 calories.

We gain calories through the food we eat. Ideally, if we burn 2,000 calories a day, we should only eat food that contains equal that amount. Here begins the problem. Most of us consume more calories than we burn. Too much eating coupled with a sedentary lifestyle results to excess calories turning to reserved energy stored in conspicuous places in the body that we cutely call "love handles." But there is nothing lovely about being overweight. Not when you know that your risk of getting lifestyle diseases such as cancer and heart ailment goes up with your weight.

The 500 Calorie mark 

When you are overweight, it is not enough to simply balance your calorie intake with calorie burned because, remember, your body still has enough energy to power a city. But if you are serious about online weight loss programs that will actually work, you need to exceed your calorie intake by 500 calories; the scientifically calculated benchmark for effective weight loss. If you are able to chip off that amount daily then you stand to lose about a pound a week.

So if you really are serious about losing weight, you better be ready to sweat it out. There are a number of online weight loss exercise programs that you can start with right away.

Step Aerobics 

Burning 500 calories is easy with step aerobics. And its concept is basic enough for a newbie weight loser to follow right away. Using an elevated platform, you will be made to follow repetitive, rhythm based movements designed to create anywhere from low to high intensity workout. A 200 pounder doing low intensity step aerobics for 60 minutes can lose approximately 670 calories.

Brisk walking 

There are many online weight loss exercises programs that involve brisk walking. The same 200 pound person walking at a pace of 2.5 miles an hour for 60 minutes stands to lose 271 calories. If you walk longer then you can calculate how much more you can burn. Cool right? And all you did was put on your sneakers on and one foot in front of the other.
How to Burn 500 Calories A Day To Lose Weight

Jogging is halfway between walking and running. However, jogging is only encouraged as a weight loss exercise program if you have already started to shed off some pounds because of the impact on the knees. If you (assuming you are 200 pounds) jog at a steady 7 mile per hour clip for 60 minutes, that's just more than twice faster than the brisk walk pace above, you will burn a whopping 816 calories. But of course jogging puts more impact on your body so better assess your readiness before you hit that stride.

Cross training 

Cross training is the best form of weight loss exercise programs as it can be done anywhere, even in the comfort of your own room. This is not as complicated as it sounds. You can combine five simple weight loss exercises, such as skipping, shuttle run, jumping jacks, sit up and lunges. Perform each exercise for a minute long and switch to the exercise without resting. Take a 30 seconds break after the first set and repeat for 3 sets.

How to Burn 500 Calories A Day To Lose Weight

 Weight Loss Fail
Fat loss is big business - pardon the pun. You can't open a magazine or turn on the TV without seeing some sort of weight loss advertisement or programme. Where on earth do you start if you want to lose weight quickly and keep it off?

We have seen many diets come and go - low fat, high protein, liquid diets, detox diets... Which to choose? Well, to make an informed choice, we need to look at the latest research on how the body utilises and stores energy. Only then can we establish which of these diets work and which are based on pseudo-science and myth.

Common Problems

Have you tried diets only to put the weight back on and then some?

Or do you find no matter what you do, you can't make progress in shifting the pounds?

Have you found that a diet that works for your friend has no effect on you?

Have you got stubborn fat that no amount of dieting seems to shift?

Does exercise not help at all in shifting the fat? In fact it makes you want to head for the nearest burger bar and down a super-size meal?

If you can answer yes to any of these you're probably making the classic mistake. You're working against Mother Nature.

Why Your Body Hates You

To be perfectly honest I didn't know whether to title this article Why Your Body Hates You or Why Your Body Loves You. I went for the former as I think most people feel they're fighting a losing battle against their bodies in terms of staying lean and fighting the urge to eat fattening food.

However, when you think about it, Mother Nature is really doing you a favour by keeping you weak, fat and ravenous in order for you to survive. You see our bodies haven't changed genetically much since our hunter gatherer days. Back then there could be long periods between managing to hunt down antelopes for dinner and, during long cold winters, plant food was scarce. The fact that human beings can store fat easily, use their brains more than their brawn and are set up to binge eat after periods of starvation has led to us being the most successful species on the planet.

Today, the ideal human body is held up to be the opposite of weak and fat. We idolise lean, slim, toned bodies and to be fair, from a health perspective, not chasing down antelope on a regular basis isn't doing much for our health. We all know heart disease, type II diabetes, cancer and depression are on the increase and there's a direct correlation to what we're putting in our mouths and lack of exercise to those conditions.

So what can we do? We're genetically designed to be the opposite of what we want to be. In the past lean physiques wouldn't have lasted long winters and a lot of muscle is a pain to carry around when hunting down a gazelle for dinner.

What you need is an eating and exercise plan that outwits Mother Nature, understanding that you have natural instincts which are perfectly natural and normal. It only takes a bit of understanding and information to work with those instincts to give you the body you've always wanted.

Mistake Number 1

We've all heard the advice to eat less and exercise more. People have been trying diets like this for years now and the track record is pretty abysmal. Yes people lose weight at first, but 98% of the time it all comes back - and then some.
What's the problem? The model is fundamentally broken.

People quote the calories in/calories out theory as a fundamental rule of thermodynamics. Well it is, but it only applies to a limited extent. Your body is not a fixed computer system. In fact it is an incredible complex system that tries to confound your attempts to make it into some sort of human calculator.

You metabolic rate is not fixed. You body plays with this all the time based on things like the ambient temperature and food intake. The energy your body spends on maintenance far dwarfs any amount of energy you could spend exercising (Olympic athletes excepted). Let's say you decide to cut your intake by 200 calories a day. Your body, wanting to keep things as static as possible (called homeostasis) simply lowers your metabolism enough to compensate. So you're tired, cold, and sleepy, but you don't lose any weight.

So you cut your intake by 1000 calories in an effort to give your body no choice but to drop weight. So what does your body do? It starts ditching all that expensive lean mass - muscles, organs, etc. Guess what? You're still fat, but now you're weak and sickly as well.

In fact, a calorie restricted diet is bt definition not sustainable. If you could truly eat less calories than you were burning for the rest of your life you would starve to death. That's why these diets always fail. You have to stop them sooner or later.

So how is it even possible to cause permanent weight loss and body re-composition? The answer is to gain control of your hormones.

Why are you squishy around the middle? Your hormones are screwed up. They are telling your body's tissues to store fat. Why do you feel lethargic all the time? It's not because you eat too much. It's because you eat too little. Your body is down-regulating your metabolism in order to save energy for fat production. That's what the hormones are telling it to do.

For the vast majority of people this hormone situation is completely under their control. The most important hormone is controlled by what we eat. Insulin, which you've probably heard of, is the storage hormone. It tells your body's cells to store energy.

Now we're not saying that insulin is bad at all. It's vital to life. Type I diabetics can't produce enough insulin so they must take insulin shots to stay healthy. Without insulin your cells would starve to death.
But if you always have high insulin levels then your body is always in storage mode. Energy is going into storage, but is never coming out. At a certain point your muscle tissue and your liver are full. The only tissue that can keep storing energy basically without limit is fat. So when you eat with chronically high insulin levels, energy going into your fat stores never comes out. You get hungry even though you've literally got "months" of energy stored on your body. The fat can't release the energy it has stored until the insulin level goes down. So your blood sugar crashes, you get ravenously hungry, you eat more, and the cycle repeats itself.

Mistake Number 2

So conventional advice says you should eat many small meals throughout the day so you don't get hungry, and that those meals should be mainly 'healthy' low-fat carbohydrate sources. I hope you see how insane this is. You're trying to lose weight and yet you're constantly feeding yourself.

"But I get ravenously hungry a couple of hours after my meal!" I hear you shout. Actually, no. Most of us in the western world have no idea what true hunger is. If you're hungry quickly after a meal it is the effect of high insulin levels and the crash in blood sugars that occur shortly afterwards.

You're not a herbivore who grazes all day. I know this makes animal-lovers uncomfortable, but man is a top-of-the-food-chain predator. We hunted; we killed; we feasted. We're lions not cows.

Mistake Number 3

So then we turn to exercise. Many people start an exercise routine such as running, swimming or other forms of cardio to lose weight. That's great for your heart health but to be perfectly honest has an absolutely dismal record when it comes to weight loss. Yes I know that sounds odd coming from someone who has made a career in the fitness industry, but looking at the evidence, it's a fact.

Most people starting an exercise programme don't realise that these long steady cardio session in the 'fat-burning zone' have actually been proven to increase appetite. So you build up your time pounding the pavements and wonder why you manage to eat your way through a full packet of biscuits in ten minutes flat on your return.

So why bother with exercise I hear you cry? Well although these forms of exercise have been proven to be useless for fat loss, the right form of exercise coupled with the correct eating plan have been shown to have outstanding results. You've just got to do the right exercise with the right eating plan - by now you know that's controlling your hormones - and you're away.

So what type of exercise? We want exercise that creates the most calorie burn, not just during the session, but afterwards. No long, slow, boring cardio.

For most people cutting the time and increasing the challenge is far more effective. Yes I'll repeat that - less is more. Challenging, ten minute workouts are easy to fit into the day and will keep your body utilising those fat stores long after you've finished working out.

So to summarise:

Your body is ensuring your survival by keeping you lazy and over eating
Human instinct is extremely powerful and you shouldn't even bother trying to overpower it
There are easy ways to work with your instincts to change your body for good
Forget calorie counting and portion control - your body will lower your metabolism straight away to combat it.
Control your fat storage/ fat burning hormones and you lose weight easily without feeling ravenous.
Ditch the long, boring hours on the treadmill. Less is more - increase the exercise challenge and decrease the time. Oh and you'll find you're not bored to death as well.

The EQ Plan includes a natural 14 day weight loss programme. Each day, members receive a ten minute workout video and eating plan. For further information, go to

How to Lose Weight in a Natural Way – Methods to Lose Fat Quickly!

Motivate Yourself To Lose Weight
Motivation is the one thing that will help you succeed at weight loss. This article looks into two ways that you can increase your motivation levels to such a level that failing to lose weight does not even enter your mind.

It doesn't take a fool to work out that weight loss is about giving your lifestyle a makeover and changing things that made you overweight in the first place, and it doesn't happen overnight! The problem is that significant changes to your lifestyle, if made too quickly will have a negative impact on your weight loss efforts, and will leave you frustrated and disappointed. What many people do not recognize is that there is more to losing weight than just dieting and exercise, as this article will show as it takes you beyond the world of strict diets and tortuous exercise routines!

1. Avoid Negative thoughts:

Negative thoughts can do more damage to your attempts at weight loss than anything else. If you tell yourself you can't do something enough times, trust me, you won't do it. Now read that back carefully; I said - 'won't do it', not can't do it or unable to do it but, won't do it. This is the dark power of negative thinking. If you tell yourself that you are unable to do a sit up, you will have failed to do one before you have even tried.

The opposite of course applies; you have to instill a positive mental approach to your weight loss efforts, keep telling yourself that you will do something, or you can do something, even if you've never done a sit up before for example tell yourself you can do one, if not today, tomorrow and if not tomorrow the day after, but you will not stop trying until you have done one, that is positive thinking!

Now that was just an example, and what it was an example of was positive goal setting. Setting goals will be your fast route to weight loss success. Your goals should be little steps of success that are easy to achieve, not unrealistic leaps that are crying out to you to fail. If your target weight loss is 50 pounds, don't set yourself a weekly weight loss target of 12 pounds, because you will struggle to make that and the disappointment will eventually cause you to give up. Set a realistic target of 2 or 3 pounds a week in order to reach your target of 4 to 5 months.

2. Surround yourself with like minded and supportive people:

The right support is essential as this will keep you focused and determined. Without these types of people it will be more difficult to lose weight successfully. You need to enroll the support of friends and family as they will give you the backing you ask for and will be behind you 100%. The weight loss program you eventually choose has to offer good support to its members as a priority in the shape of a forum or a support group where you can chat to like minded people who will be facing the same issues and hurdles as yourself and also you should find that there will be a sprinkling of expert support and input in there also.

Basically, these are the yin and yang of weight loss, negative thoughts, that will stop you ever losing weight and supportive positive people that practically guarantee success.

So, if you follow these tips you should be able to lose weight, because whatever you believe in your mind you can achieve, and you WILL!

There Are A Great Number Awesome Tanning Products

By Haywood Hunter

It's no secret that sunbathing is dangerous. The same is true with the use of salon devices which rely on lamps emitting UV light. Tanning spray is favored by many who like to give their complexion a naturally bronzed color risk-free. This skin darkening solution may be done by ordering an aerosol can or a personal airbrush kit, or with the help of a salon attendant.

No matter the tanning spray approach, the solution used remains the same. It contains what's called DHA, short for dihydroxyacetone. This transparent sugar-based chemical is capable of browning the layer of dead cells on the topmost part of your skin. The initial effect of tanning spray may be noticed after 2 to 4 hours, and this will darken more after about a day.

You don't have to wait for a few hours before results may be observed. A tanning spray solution usually contains a brown tint which causes instant skin darkening. The tan-like hue is only temporary and will wash off when you take a shower or sweat a lot. Worry not because DHA in tanning spray is the one which will give your skin a lasting bronzed color.

The effect of tanning spray lasts for 7 to 10 days. The golden brown color fades gradually just like a real tan, so it's less likely for others to suspect that your lovely complexion isn't real. This disappearance cannot be blamed on DHA. What causes this to happen is the regular replacement of the tanned layer of dead skin cells with a new one. In order to slow down this process and let the dazzling color stay around longer, using a moisturizing lotion or a tan extender may be done.

You may purchase tanning spray that comes in a can. Aerosol technology allows the substance inside to be delivered in the form of a mist. This facilitates the application, making it easier to achieve an even coating so streak formation may be avoided. Many find this particular product more favorable that lotions or foams because it produces a flawless, natural-looking tan.

Personal airbrush kits are also available. They are suited for those who take getting a tan indoors seriously. These devices are hooked up to containers with tanning spray solution. It's true that an airbrush does not come cheap. But in the long run, investing in one actually helps save cash most especially if you are planning on using tanning spray for months or years.

Most salons these days offer risk-free and effective tanning spray service. This allows you to achieve a golden brown complexion safely because it does not involve UV light exposure. Also, a qualified attendant will do the challenging task for you. This service may cost more than ordering an aerosol can on the internet, but many people will attest that the price is worth it.

No matter if you like using an aerosol can, a personal airbrush kit or allowing a salon attendant to do the job, tanning spray is a risk-free solution to get a realistic bronzed complexion. Going for this approach spares you from too much UV light exposure. Looking beautiful today doesn't have to mean having deadly skin cancer tomorrow.
