Incidental activity is very important in the process of losing weight as you can burn more calories than relying on dietary means alone. Fat is burned from the body when cells oxidize to release energy in the form of exercise or movement. When the exercise is done slowly to moderately then the majority of energy is taken from the fat stores.

No Such Thing As Spot Reduction

The loss of fat comes from fat cells all over the body, not from one or more specific area’s so spot reduction of a certain area is not possible. The main priority of this article is to show you the quickest and safest way to lose fat from the body.

The key to effective aerobic training that burns off the maximum amount of fat is long-term consistency not intensity. It doesn’t matter if you run a mile, jog a mile or walk a mile you will burn exactly the same amount of calories.

Fast Walking is Outstanding!

The best exercise by far for the purpose of fat-loss is fast walking either indoors Person walking in the woodson the treadmill or outdoors. What many don’t know is that walking produces a greater percentage of fat loss as opposed to jogging or running. Other aerobic activities are the treadmill, bike, climber or any other training gear found in or out of the gym.

Walk or exercise until you are mildly puffing and hold that rate until the allotted time. If your aerobic activities leave you panting or breathless, your going too hard, your energy is coming from your carbohydrate reserves and not from your fat stores. Try fast walking for one hour a day every day of the week if you are able.

Here are some of the benefits of Fast Walking:

Easy to Perform
Most Conventional
All Natural Body Movement
Doesn’t Cause Injuries
Can Be Done Anywhere
The Best Minimal Effort Exercise for Fat Loss
Research shows that regular, brisk walking is one of the best exercises we can do for overall fitness. It suits people of all ages and fitness levels, it’s easy to get started and there’s no complicated technique to learn or equipment to buy.

Walking is an excellent way to get fit because it uses nearly all the muscles and, as you have to carry your body weight, you can get a good workout from it.

It’s also safer on the joints and the back than most other forms of exercise because you’re not jumping up and down, so the impact is low.

Reduce Your Risk Of Heart Attack

Studies have shown that taking a daily 20-minute walk can reduce the risk of heart attack as much as 50%, it also reduces high blood pressure and helps to burn fat to keep weight under control.

Walking and other weight bearing exercises (Strength training) helps to increase bone mass, which protects against osteoporosis and bone fractures.

In the first two weeks, go for a 20-minute walk every other day and then increase Heart Healththis to 40 minutes. At first try to do five 20-minute walks per week totalling 100 minutes a week. Once you get used to the regular exercise, increase this to 40 minutes for five times a week.

You can then gradually increase this as you see fit, if you want to walk every day for 40 minutes or even an hour so be it. Remember the more you walk the more fat that will be burned off. The best pace for fitness training will make you slightly breathless, but you should still be comfortable and be able to carry on a conversation.

As you get fitter, you’ll want to stretch a little harder to keep your heart rate up. Try lengthening your strides, increasing your pace. Keep your shoulders back, your chest lifted and your tummy pulled in when you walk, hold your head up for open, easy breathing.

Practical Tips…

If your feeling stressed, try counting your steps repeatedly from one to ten as you safety firstwalk, this helps some people achieve a meditative effect and can be a great tension reliever when practiced over a full 40 minutes.

Time yourself, measure the distance or increase the gradient to make the workout more challenging. Drink plenty of fluids during and after your walk.

Safety First

Make safety your first consideration. Don’t walk after dark except in well-lit, busy places. Start the walk slowly, and then gradually increase the pace.
In all other activities try to move, move, move. Try parking the car further away from your destination so you can walk the extra distance, hide all your remote controls so you have to get up and change the channels manually. These all help burn those extra calories and body fat from your frame.

Have A Great Day!

What Is The Paleo Diet?

The Paleo Diet – caveman diet, paleolithic diet, stone age diet, or hunter-gatherer diet – is one of the most popular diets in the world right now. The Paleo diet is basically eating foods that a caveman would eat so when people ask you “What is the Paleo Diet?”, think of the word paleo from the paleolithic period what cavemen eat. Cavemen don’t eat bags of crisps, hotdogs or candy. They eat lots of dinosaur meat……..ok, just kidding. This means that all of the processed foods, and most processed dairy products, nuts, oils, grains, and sugars (possibly chocolate) are recommended out of the menu for the Paleo Diet. If someone asks you “What is the Paleo Diet?” just reply “It’s a caveman diet.” All meat, fruits and vegetables only. That pretty much sums up the Paleo Diet. If the person asks “What is the Paleo Diet” again then whack him with a club!  Or feed him to your pet dinosaur…..just kidding:)

What does “processed” mean in the food industry?

The word “processed” typically means anything that has went through a process. This means anything that has went through the factory, the blender, or the adding of different ingredients before it reaches your home so to speak.

This does not mean that you should not eat slaughtered animals ( I hate that term), because they have gone through the process of killing and cleaning. You are 100% allowed to have them in the Paleo Diet. Processed animal meat means that they have went through factories to grind the meat down to a hull and package them after having used preservatives other than salt.

Processed foods include hotdogs, sausages, nuggets, canned foods, and the like since they do not come out as “simply cooked meat” but instead come with preservatives, breadcrumbs, flavourings, and oils.

What about eating like a monkey? 

Here’s another thought….think of what a monkey or an ape eats – then just add fresh meat. (Have you ever seen a fat monkey?  Nope! This will simplify the whole thought of the Paleo Diet what a caveman eats since you might think of what a temperate (cold weather) caveman would eat instead of what a tropical (hot weather) caveman would eat.

Monkeys, apes, and other primates have a rich diet of fruits coupled with daily exercise swinging from trees and walking about. This is what the 21st century diet is all about – going back to the basics.  Keeping it fresh:)

What about calcium?

You might be wondering where to get the main reason why you have dairy products other than they’re tasty. You can get calcium from a lot of other sources and since we are following an ancient human diet that has worked for over thousands of years, you can rest assured that it will still work today.

Green leafy vegetables, and fish especially the oily ones like sardines and pilchards give the most calcium. Of course, there is still calcium in other foods that you will be having in your Paleo Diet like nuts, and oranges!

Calcium should not be a problem since you diet will include foods rich in them. The above are the best sources of calcium for the Paleo Diet.

The Paleo Diet is not just about meat.

Yes, you will. The Paleo Diet is not strictly meat or meat alone. It is simply a tweak to your regular diet. The big difference is that your grains will have to be taken out of the menu since we are talking about the caveman diet also known as the hunter-gatherer diet. This is not the farmer diet. You might be wondering where you get your carbohydrates since grains provide a pack of that.

Somehow, the evolution of man has made it necessary that we have a moderate intake of carbohydrates. How much is what should be taken into. If you are a high-energy athlete who requires a lot of energy-intake, then you might want to stick to a low amount of carbohydrates, (around 40 – 50 grams),but go for the unprocessed foods. It would be recommended that everyone has to an extent the “safe starches” like sweet potatoes, pumpkins, yams, and nuts.

Let’s sum up “The Paleo Diet” 

All of this can be summed up through one of the popular phrases of the Paleo Diet I sure hope you put into mind: meats, vegetables, nuts, and seeds; some fruits, no sugar. This comes in order with having the vegetables, nuts, meats, and seeds as the most, with around 2 fruits a day, and strictly no refined/processed sugars. Honey can be your sugar alternative to an extent. One tip: honey with an expiration date is not real honey. Honey does not expire.

All the Best

The Seven Proven Scientific Benefits of a Low-Carb Diet Plan

A very popular diet used to help lose weight is the low-carb diet plan. As the name implies, the diet is based on consuming more of proteins and limiting your carbohydrates. In fact, the only carbohydrates advised to eat while on the diet are those found in fruits and vegetables.

While there are seven proven scientific benefits of following a low-carb diet, it is always better to consult your doctor before starting it, especially if you suffer from health problems like high blood pressure and diabetes.

  • You will lose weight if you stay on a low carb diet

Research and results over the years prove that it’s possible to lose weight while following a low-carb diet. However the amount of weight you lose can and will be different for individuals, and depends on how determined and capable you are at eliminating sugars and carbs from your diet.  (In other words can you stick to the rules of a low carb diet:)

  •  Blood pressure and sugar levels should improve

Hypertension or high blood pressure are one of the strongest risk factors for stroke and heart disease, it’s important you lower the risk of this disease by lowering your blood pressure levels. While pills can help you do this, even following a healthy diet like a low-carb diet plan helps reduce high blood pressure especially in the obese.

Similarly, low carbohydrate diets do help reduce the levels of fasting glucose and glycated hemoglobin. So if you are diabetic, you enjoy the dual benefit of losing weight and reducing blood sugar levels by following a low-carb diet plan.

  • Helps improve triglyceride levels  (This one is huge for me:)

Triglyceride levels are an important risk factor for cardiovascular disease where its high levels are related to risk factors like abnormal lipoprotein metabolism, insulin resistance, obesity, diabetes mellitus and low HDL cholesterol levels. There have been many studies that prove that reducing your carbohydrate intake helps significantly reduce triglyceride levels.  (Remember though fruits and veggies are not eliminated from your diet:)

  • Improves HDL cholesterol levels

Low HDL cholesterol levels are associated with an increased risk of heart disease and other cardiovascular diseases. One way to improve its levels is by restricting your carbohydrate intake through a low-carb diet plan.

  • Insulin resistance will be lowered in most cases

People with the metabolic syndrome suffer from insulin resistance, which seems to have an association with cardiovascular disease. Research has proven that restricting your carb intake helps lower insulin resistance more than by restricting your fat intake.  (Keep the veggies and fruitees and drop the candy:)

  • Low carbs will help lower insulin and C-reactive protein levels

High insulin levels or hyperinsulinemia is a risk factor for coronary heart disease and is associated with insulin resistance. Lowering insulin levels is better and possible through carbohydrate restriction.

  • Helps reduce C-reactive protein levels

C-reactive protein (CRP) is a known marker of inflammation and is measured in blood. While high sensitivity CRP is associated with a heightened cardiovascular risk, carbohydrate restriction helps lower CRP levels. This proves that low-carb diet plans do indeed help reduce inflammation. (I know this one is huge for me.)  My stomach shrank within days.  I was shocked!)

With so many benefits associated with a low-carb diet plan, there’s no harm in following the diet. Not only to lose weight, but also to experience these amazing health benefits and thus end up feeling better and healthier!  (Basically, going low carb will make you feel better in days.  You’ll be getting the bad stuff like sugar out of your diet and eating a lot more vegetables and fruits…….you can’t go wrong.  Try an orange for dessert instead of that huge bowl of ice cream:)

If you are an internet network marketer, it may be a little challenging to figure out where you should invest your time and money when it comes to the world of social media. What is the best way to go when using social media marketing for network marketing?

There are a few main websites that everyone knows about, but surprisingly, not everyone uses those sites. Billions of people are doing very well without Facebook and Instagram. But, really who cares about those people. You are thinking about the masses that are on social media and are waiting for your message.

The first thing you need to do is look at the audience of people you want to attract. If you are looking for business professional types then you most likely want to head over to LinkedIn and see who you can find there and build your audience. If you want more of the younger crowd then Snapchat is where it’s at for at least the time being:)

The truth is that social media is always changing usually for the good and then again sometimes bad and what we know about social media and all of the rules today, there is going to be something new that comes up tomorrow.

Just remember that your goal with marketing on social media is to build followers who want to know, like and trust you and for you to gather leads and eventually team members and or customers. You want to have a plan in place to capture these leads so that you aren’t just promoting all of the time and not getting anything done.

Make sure you write a proven plan down so you know what type of audience you want to target. That plan will make it much easier for you to pick the right social media platforms for your social marketing and business building.

Here’s A Fast Look At A Funded Proposal Plan

It’s always very hard to pull in money for an enterprise and one of the toughest Market Business Global Business Marketing Commerce Conceptissues that faces many businesses is advertising. A large amount of folks think that it’s really setting up an enterprise that is the hardest part, but marketing a business is obviously the most complex and challenging factor. In network marketing these complications can actually be over come by embracing a funded proposal idea.

The whole idea behind selling in a network marketing business is to get as many potential prospects as possible, whom you then convert into leads and then sales. This is a long, slow and complex process and naturally the final result is always moderately unpredictable. What occurs with many businesses is they run into money problems before these promotional efforts can be converted into cash flow.

A number of folks decided to go one step beyond the common training offers in the MLM business and embraced the new idea of a funded proposal. In this concept the network marketer gets together as many potential social marketers as they can and takes them through a training program which helps them set up and become future network promoters under their own down line.

The elemental difference between this and standard techniques is the new marketing expert must pay a small amount of money for training.

The lead recruiter then uses these fees to cover any funding gap there could be between their initial promotional efforts and seeing any returns.

By adding this charge you continue to get leverage by training other team members who then become great product movers without using any of your money, when you’re not especially sure of the end result.

This is win-win situation. This way you don’t have to rely on the money that your Win-win partnership strategy concept. Businessman offer win-win scheme with handshake partnership agreement.team mate might or might not make for you in the future. Instead you need to use the money the new person has paid for training which should satisfy your current needs till you can attract future team members.

Funded proposal systems have proven to be a good a very successful method of funding a business as it grows. But it is vital to make certain you don’t charge excessively for training as this may turn away a number of potential new sign ups and jeopardize your attempts.

A funded proposal does work best in the initial stages, but having good product info and training is vital to finding the proper candidates who will convert your wonderful training into potential leads and then sales, which is the only way to grow.

Many team members will become great marketing specialists with high volume sales which will help build both your business and their business; this is why the funded proposal concept is such a success.

Stress Relief Options

When it comes to stress relief, there are quite a few options out there. Talk with your health care provider to find the one that may be right for you. Here are some of the more commonly available options for stress relief.

1. Natural

Quite a few treatment options come under this heading. Natural treatments focus on coping strategies like body movements, meditation, and natural supplements.

Yoga has been shown to help relieve stress in those who practice it. Yoga involves stretching and holding the body in postures, and it sometimes includes meditation.

Meditation alone is an increasingly popular means of coping with stress. Deep woman relaxing on the couchbreathing, relaxed muscles, and an aligned body frame are some of the reported benefits of meditation.

Supplements have been shown to be helpful in dealing with stress. Some natural health practitioners recommend supplementing with flax oil or evening primrose oil, as these essential fatty acids are said to play a role in healthy brain function. (They are sometimes suggested for those who suffer from depression, too.)

Other experts suggest a bioavailable multi-vitamin with a high proportion of B6, women doing yogaor perhaps a B-complex supplement or just B6 alone. Studies show that the B vitamins play a key role in mood and emotional health.

There are other herbs and natural supplements that may help stress. If you can, locate a natural health practitioner or herbalist to help recommend something for you.

2. Medical

There is no shame is resorting to medication, as long as it is under a doctor’s supervision. Medication is said to be particularly indicated in helping people cope with sudden life changes or stress such as the loss of a loved one or a car accident. Medications are not necessarily indicated for dealing with everyday stressors.

Some stress sufferers find relief from stress-related headaches when they take medication. The goal of most medication of this nature is to get you to the point where you are able to seek help and deal with the underlying cause of your stress.

3. Dietary

In a dietary approach to stress management, what you avoid eating may be as healthy dietimportant as what you do eat. Experts recommend avoiding sugar and caffeine, as these stimulants tend to provide short-term relief with a “crash” later. Caffeine in particular can have a cyclic effect – you consume the caffeine to cope, but then the caffeine keeps you awake or makes you irritable.

Try to include lots of fresh, whole foods in your stress-relieving diet to keep your body functioning in top shape.

4. Research

There can be great solace in learning about a topic that is bothering you. Take some time to research books and articles on stress. Find out how it works, why people experience it, and how you can deal with it. Sometimes, just learning as much as you can about it helps you cope. It might become less mysterious and scary that way.

Happy New Year!

Types of Stress

Stress is stress, right? Well, not always. There are actually categories of stress. They vary according to frequency, severity, and symptoms. Let’s take a look at some of them.

-Eustress

This may be a new term to some. Eustress refers to “good” stress, or the kind of stress that actually enhances health and performance. This is the kind of stress you feel when you see your child about to topple down a flight of stairs, and it kicks your body systems into gear so that you can act quickly and efficiently to catch your child. Other ways that Eustress manifests are in creative and athletic efforts. An artist who is driven by Eustress becomes inspired and full of energy. An athlete gains excited energy and his or her body performs to its highest potential. Eustress is brief, intense, and does not wear the body out.

-Hyperstress

The prefix “hyper” denotes too much of something, or an excess of some sort – hyperactivity, hyperthyroidism, etc. Hyperstress is no exception. It refers to relentless stress that forces you to perform optimally and continually. It’s like being asked to give your all every minute of every day, and sometimes through the night as well. Hyperstress is not healthy, and can cause burn-out.

Hyperstressed people often feel tense and edgy. You may find that your emotions are always just below the surface and are easily provoked.

-Hypostress

The opposite of the “hyper” prefix, “hypo” denotes a lack, as in hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). If you are Hypostressed, you don’t have enough stimuli. You’re bored and do not have much motivation. This does not mean you’re not doing anything; you just are not doing anything that interests or motivates you. For example, if you have a job that involves repetitive, mechanical action, such as on an assembly line, you may experience Hypostress. Hypostress can make you feel restless, discontent, or apathetic.

-Distress

Distress is caused by a traumatic event or events, or some sort of negative environmental factor. It is sometimes used synonymously with anxiety. Distress itself is divided into two types: acute and chronic distress.

*Acute distress results from a perceived threat. It may be real, such as being physically attacked, or it may be purely psychological. Either way, the result is distress. It’s your response to being threatened. Acute distress can also be a reaction to a change or upheaval in your life. It is always temporary.

*Chronic distress is more on-going. It can result in illness and depression. It may still be caused by perceived threats or difficulties in the environment, but they are continual or frequent. Chronic distress can result if you are yelled at by your boss every day, for example, or if you are in a problematic marriage. Where acute distress is like a hammer blow, chronic distress is like a slow wearing down with sandpaper.

Happy New Year!

The Pros and Cons of Network Marketing

You’d think that after all the years that multi-level or network marketing has been around (it all started circa 1920s), people would by now be clear on what strategy works. Unfortunately, this is not the case; there is still a lot of uncertainty about MLM. Try asking three of your friends what multi-level marketing is, and odds are at least one of them would say it’s a scam. One might say it’s simply another marketing strategy, and that it’s a good venture to go into.

Just a piece of friendly advice: stick with that friend. Because while there are many misconceptions regarding multi-level marketing and companies like Now Lifestyle.com which use network marketing, what is clear is that it works when done properly. The strategy will not last this long if it cannot earn money. There are, however, some pros and cons in joining a network marketing venture, and here are some of them.

Pros

It makes you work smart, not hard. It’s a common saying nowadays—sadly not a multi level marketingcommon practice, however. With network marketing, you are not just simply selling your product. You can create a downline that will help you earn passively. This means as long as the people you recruit are earning, you can also earn via commission based on the company’s structure.

It trains you for success. What is often overlooked is the fact that network marketing trains you for the skills you need in setting up and maintaining your own business. Too many people focus on lengthening their downlines or recruiting more and more salespeople just to get the incentives. If you look more closely, however, you will see that you are being trained to sell, to motivate yourself, to manage your precious time, and create connections—all of which are crucial to any business.

Although the material benefits are important, even more important is the self-improvement you will be going through; after all, this could even be priceless in the long run.

Cons

It looks a lot like a scam. This is the most common problem with network marketing ventures these days. Since you get to earn more with less effort, it’s a scam, right? Wrong. There are legitimate ways of earning money through MLM, as many who dared have found out. However, it is also true that many scammers pretend to be multi-level marketers, which could make it difficult to find those who operate legitimately, like Now Lifestyle.com.

Too many people focus on the wrong thing. This could be discouraging both for multi-level marketingthose inside and outside the network marketing company. Imagine if you end up in a company that prioritizes recruitment more than selling, when it should be the other way around. This might be contagious; soon, you will be focusing more on trying to evangelize recruits instead of developing your skills and putting it into good use by actually selling.

Remember that all ventures or strategies have their advantages and disadvantages; the key is to be thoroughly informed so that you will have no regrets in the future.

Happy New Year!
