Fast Weight Loss Tips Guide

Trying to lose weight and not sure where to start? Look no further than my rapid weight loss tips guide.

First and foremost is to determine why you want to lose weight. Is this something you truly want to do, or is your motivation based on some event that happened? Did someone say something or do something to embarrass you? If not then you are in the best frame of mind possible. If You motivation is based on anger, revenge, or trying to “show them” I would advise you to use it as a quick burst yet realize that the best results come from within. Looking in the mirror and like what you see, being able to be active without getting winded, playing with the kids and not being in pain the next morning.

Second I would say to just get out there and start doing things. Don’t question yourself, wonder if your doing it right, do what you know already. The biggest killer to any fitness goal is thinking you cant do it and never getting started. Don’t let your mind get there, just go.

Third, after a while of working out decide what type of body you want to develop and then seek more weight loss tips suited specifically towards that end goal to further enhance the process and be most efficient. After all wanting to look like Ronnie Coleman and then going running 24/7 is not going to get you there. Another reason for this is that with an image of how you want to look in your head that will help you visualize it and work towards it even more.

The saying goes that information is power and it is. However to much information seeking leads to no action. When it comes to fitness action is power, followed up by some genuine information seeking for the next time. Fast weight loss tips are the best sort of information to seek as they are the easiest to implement.

Medifast vs. Special K Protein Shakes

There are many consumers who find it difficult to choose between Medifast shakes and the Special K-protein shakes. Both claim similar results. But both have different carbohydrate levels though very similar protein levels.

Though there are hosts of other protein and diet shakes available at the grocery stores, these two shakes have remained the most popular. But the consumers of medifast shakes have cribbed about how these are not easily available at the stores and have to be purchased online almost always.

Ketosis can be defined as the process of increased metabolism where the fat is burned rapidly and efficiently. As the body gets more protein than carbohydrates, the protein ensures that we get the fuel to go on with our daily activities. As there are low carbohydrates, the body burns fat instead of sugar. We need a high protein level and low carb level to achieve weight loss through ketosis.

Though both medifast and K protein shakes have almost the same protein levels. Medifast shakes have much lower calorie content then K shakes with only 100 calories as compared to the 180 calories of the latter. Medifast shakes have 11 grams of protein while K- shakes have 10 grams of protein, but while the carbohydrate level of medifast shakes is 13, the same for the K shakes is a whopping 29, which is more than the double of the medifast shakes. Again the sugar level of Medifast shakes amounts to 8 grams while the special K shakes have again 18 grams of sugar.  This difference in carbohydrate and sugar levels is what can make much of a difference between the two. This difference can affect the ketosis and in turn affects the levels of fat burned. So, if you’re looking for an efficient way to get skinny its better to wait for the company to ship the order than to buy shakes at the stores thus compromising on nutrition and effectiveness.

John’s Wort, the Most Powerful Natural Antidepressant

Depression is a serious medical condition that is manifested by increased depression, sadness, discouragement and deep chronic pessimism, all associated with anxiety and low general tone and resistance. Depression is the most common mental illness worldwide and it ranks second in the hierarchy of all diseases after hypertension.

Normally depression requires depression treatment and medication but long experiences have found numerous natural antidepressant preparations and John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum) proved to be the most effective. Recommended since the XVI century by chemist Paracelsus against fear, sorrow and ugly dreams, John’s wort is beneficial in restoring hormonal balance and the nervous system. Drink as many as 2-3 teas a day before meals and one before bedtime. Tea may be replaced by St. John’s wort tincture (4-10 drops, 5 times a day), in a long-term treatment or with St. John’s wort oil (1 teaspoon, 2-3 times a day). Remember, this is not a quick weight loss diet, it is a diet that will heal you.

Recent research has shown that St John’s wort contains a high dose of hyperforin, a substance that blocks those receptors in the brain that trigger depression. St. John’s wort is beneficial in treating symptomatic and reactive depression, neurotic depression and in neurovegetative dystonia. It was found that the antidepressant action of St. John’s wort takes effect 2-3 weeks after starting administration.

Following the photosensitizer effect of hypericin (an active principle of St. John’s wort), precautionary measures are required, the patient will avoid exposure to intense sunlight throughout the treatment.

Therapists developed various complex recipes, besides St. John’s wort, that include other plant species: Hawthorn, thyme, mint, forest peppermint, valerian, balm. Essential oils are also effective separately or in blends of lavender, basil, sage, rose, jasmine, ginger and marjoram, pollen and propolis, calamus and sea-buckthorn fruit cure, fresh celery juice cure, spinach and green barley.
