People who eat a serving of soup daily lose more weight than those who eat the same amount of calories but don't eat soup.By drinking more water your kidneys will be stimulated,helping to reduce water retention; and, in the process, your body will burn some more calories.
The question remains (|) querry follows: (how helpful is the water to lose weight | what does the water to help in weight loss)?

In a manner of speaking, water (one is an appetite suppressant, as well as | more blocking hunger similar to ephedrine), (the ingredient in weight loss pills that allows individuals to control their diet | substance fat reduction pills that makes the person stop your appetite) (to be able to suppress the urge to eat | suppresing the craving to eat). However (| On the other side), (water works differently | effects in a distinctive manner). The water does not (by itself suppress appetite | appetite curb only) (not | applicable), (who fills his stomach with contents | satisfies your hunger), (tricked into believing that it is useful | to feel that cheating is now filled ) l. This is (known to bury a person need to eat | to forget someone recognized the urgent need to swallow something).

Water, in fact (| reality | truth) (it is a critical component of a popular 3-day diet plan circulating on the Internet | famous one important factor in diet regimen of 3 days can be found on the web) where (subject was asked to observe fasting for 3 days | one shall be compelled to refrain from eating in a matter of 3 days), (taking nothing but water during that period | gulping down, but no water at all this period). Water is (supposed to provide the nutrients needed by topic | expects the supply of nutrients that a person must be), (at least for the 3 days participating in the program | for at least 3 days in the plan).

Furthermore (| addition | addition), (water also complements the pursuit of a healthy rate | balance also the struggle for a normal rate of metabolism). (Metabolism is the key to effective and sustainable weight loss | how useful and of a manageable weight reduction). (In brief | in brief | To sum), (a person who has a low metabolism can burn fewer calories | a person with an irregular rhythm of metabolism will yield fewer calories) and (in effect | result) (collect more fat in the body | flabs acquire more in your body). (The person who has a pace | Someone who has a fast metabolism method) (in addition | However), (be able to burn more calories | is able to lose weight), (and as a result retain less fat | how to effect, will take a small amount of flabs).

(How does it affect the image of the water | How do I change all the water)?

Metabolism is a function (|) the effects on the liver. The liver, however (| on the other side), (also responsible for cleanup |) assigned to cleanse the kidneys. Clean water (|) purifies the kidneys. So (with sufficient water intake | with the amount of water intake), (there is less pressure to the liver to perform its task | less stress for the liver to do its work) (and can concentrate more on improving and maintain the rate of | focus mainly on the development and maintenance of the speed) of the body's metabolism.

Water is also an excellent (|) a detoxifying substance (|) component. (Helps cleanse the body of toxins that may have accumulated over the years | help purify the body of contaminants that may have developed over time). (Detoxification is a healthy body leads to | be a Headstart on the achievement of hake and a rich body) (make it more in the performance of physical activities | more willing to participate in important activities () that can help the person to lose much weight | help someone in the loss of a significant amount of weight).

Agoraphobia is not a mental illness, even though panic attacks may make you feel like you are going crazy.Agoraphobia is a complex phobia and can involve a series of inter-linked phobias. We all experience fear at one time at least once in our lives. When we were kids, we were very scared to go to school the first day knowing that people were strangers.
We are also terrified by the idea of having to go to the dentist. Some had lesser degree of fear such as dreading the thought of having to speak before a crowd or reciting in front of the class. Some manage to overcome those fears, but others are still overwhelmed by their fears and anxiety.

Fear plays a very important part of our daily lives and in human society as a whole. Fear comes in many shapes and forms, but could be described as an unpleasant feeling of perceived risk or danger, real or not. That make us alert to the functions and ready for action while waiting for specific problems. We are afraid if we do not have the capacity to cope with something. This fear may be based on reality, as when the fear of being hit by a car while trying to cross a busy road. Or the fear may be irrational, when we fear a small harmless spider. Many of our fears are a mixture of fact and misinterpretation of our ability to cope. When there is a high degree of misinterpretation of what is most likely that this is a phobia, rather than a fear.

Phobias involve the experience of fear is excessive and unreasonable. Mental disorder is more common and research shows that over 12 percent of America's population will develop a phobia. Phobias are among several anxiety disorders, which also include panic disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder and generalized anxiety disorder. CUED Phobias are when a person approaches a particular situation or object, or even anticipates the approach. The individual experiences a phobia means fear of that experience as a result of this situation is unreasonable and excessive.

Phobias come in many different forms, some examples of phobias are: arachnophobia, fear of spiders, acrophobia, fear of heights. aviophobia, fear of flying, felinophobia; fear of cats, apiphobia; fear of bees, and the list goes on. Some phobias are well recognized, others are unknown.

But one type of phobia can be seriously disabling to a person who is called agoraphobia. The term agoraphobia is translated from Greek as "fear of the market." Its literal definition suggests a fear of "open spaces" but the term agoraphobia has been widely misunderstood and misleading. Agoraphobics are not necessarily afraid of open spaces. On the contrary, they are afraid of having panic feelings, where they can cause feelings of fear. For many, they occur at home, in houses of worship, or in crowded supermarkets, places that are not "open."

Agoraphobia is a condition that develops when a person begins to avoid spaces or situations associated with anxiety. Typical "phobic situations" might include driving, shopping, places, travel, stand in line, being alone, meetings and social gatherings. Agoraphobia arises from an internal anxiety condition that has become so intense that the suffering individual going anywhere or doing anything fears when these feelings of panic have occurred before. Once the panic attacks have started, these episodes of stress in the course, though more obvious pressures have diminished. It sets up a "feedback condition that usually leads to more panic attacks.

Typically, people with agoraphobia are limited to their "comfort zone" which may only include your home or neighborhood. Any movement beyond the edges of this zone creates an increase in anxiety. Sometimes a person with agoraphobia is unable to leave home alone, but can travel if accompanied by a relative or friend. Even when limited to "safe" situations, most people with agoraphobia continue to have panic attacks at least twice a month. Investigators are still trying to understand what causes someone to have agoraphobia. As with most mental illnesses, agoraphobia is probably caused by a complex mixture of biology and genetics, life experiences, and traits of temperament. But researchers know that several risk factors involved that make a person more likely to get agoraphobia. These factors include:

Having panic disorder
Experiencing stressful life events
Having a tendency to be nervous or anxious
Alcohol and substance use disorders

Agoraphobia usually begins during late adolescence or early adulthood, but younger children and older adults may also develop. Research also shows that more women are diagnosed with agoraphobia than men. Like many other mental disorders, agoraphobia treatment typically includes a combination of medication and psychotherapy. Treatments for depression and anxiety medications are commonly used to treat symptoms of panic and agoraphobia. Among antidepressants, selective inhibitors of serotonin reuptake (SSRIs), fluoxetine (Prozac, Prozac Weekly), paroxetine (Paxil, Paxil CR) and sertraline (Zoloft) are approved by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of panic disorder and agoraphobia may also help. Other types of antidepressants, including tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs) and monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs) are also sometimes used to treat agoraphobia. ATC and MAOI, but tend to have more side effects and side effects more serious than SSRIs. Anti anxiety, called benzodiazepines, can also help control symptoms of anxiety and panic attacks, and are often used in treating agoraphobia. These may include alprazolam ( Xanax), clonazepam (Klonopin), to name a few. Treatment of agoraphobia is often successful, and can overcome agoraphobia and learn to keep it under control.

A phobia can make life miserable, cause embarrassment and undermine self confidence and self esteem. However, you do not have to learn to live with a phobia, they are positive and proactive manner to help you conquer the market and out of fear.

Guggul Lipids

3:27 AM by dody · 0 comments

What is it? Guggul lipids are derived from the guggul plant, also known as Commiphora Mukul. Guggul lipids contain active compounds called guggulsterones. Guggul has been used in Indian Ayurvedic medicine for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years.
Guggul is best known for its effects on cholesterol and triglyceride levels. It has been used to reduce total cholesterol levels while increasing HDL (the "good" cholesterol) levels. Guggul is also prescribed for weight loss in some Ayurvedic texts. Regarding for weight loss, guggul is supposed to stimulate the thyroid gland to increase production of thyroid hormones. Thyroid hormone levels are often suppressed in people from certain nutrient deficiencies, long term low calorie intakes, certain diseases, among other factors.
A "slow" thyroid is often a key area of concern for people trying to lose weight. A slow thyroid (often referred to as sub#clinical hypothyroidism) will make it very difficult for a person to lose weight or keep it off long term. There are many health risks associated with an underactive thyroid and guggul may be able to help with that issue. Companies are selling guggul as a way of possibly increasing thyroid activity and thus making it easier to maintain a higher metabolic rate and improve weight loss
What does the research have to say?
The majority of research with guggul has focused mainly on its effects on cholesterol levels. Studies on both animals and people suggest guggul is as good, or better, than many of the current lipid reducing drugs currently prescribed to people for reducing cholesterol levels.
The exact mechanism of how guggul achieves its cholesterol lowering effects has not been fully elucidated. It may be related to guggul's supposed effects on the thyroid gland as increased thyroid activity is associated with a reduction in cholesterol levels.
One recent study in mice suggests guggul lowers cholesterol levels by being an antagonist of the FXR receptor, a nuclear hormone receptor that is activated by bile acids. Guggul decreased hepatic cholesterol in mice fed a high#cholesterol diet but was not effective in mice lacking an FXR receptor. This fact leads researchers to conclude it's the inhibition of the FXR receptor which is responsible for this herbs cholesteroMowering activity. It's clear however that guggul has additional effects.
For example, research has shown guggul's lipid lowering activity is related to an increase in LDL breakdown (catabolism), as well as other possible mechanisms have been examined. For example, studies with guggul have seemed to show it inhibits certain enzymes involved with cholesterol storage and clearance while increasing the fecal excretion of sterols and bile acids. Other interesting research suggests guggul may be protective to heart tissue; may have strong anti inflammatory properties, and for some odd reason, helps cure acne
As far as weight loss is concerned, little has been done to examine this assertion, although studies from older Indian research mentions weight loss as an effect from the use of guggul lipids. Animal research looking at its effects on the thyroid appears to show thyroid activity increases but human studies are limited or inconclusive. The one recent study that examined weight loss and guggul combined with other compounds is covered in the next section.
What does the real world have to say?
General feedback has been limited and mixed. Most people report no weight loss from taking guggul as the only weight loss nutrient, but very few people have tried it for that use in my experience.
There is no doubt that guggul lipids are an interesting topic with potentially useful applications, such as reducing total cholesterol and triglyceride levels. The lack of modern research examining the effects of guggul on weight loss, combined with lack luster feedback, is a problem but certainly does not mean it is worthless.
The mixed feedback may be due to several of the following issues: •
(a) Thyroid is clearly essential for the regulation of metabolic rate/weight loss, there are many factors that have to be considered, such as GH, UCP's, insulin levels, neurotransmitters, androgens, leptin levels, estrogen levels, and about a hundred other variables, so people are not going to find thyroid output and
function as the be all and end all of fat loss. It is definitely however one important and worthwhile angle to pursue.
(b) While there is still some debate, guggul does appear to positively affect thyroid output, but the effect may not be great enough to cause weight loss. The thyroid is not the only regulator of the body's metabolism or our ability to lose fat. It's very possible that guggul is useful as part of a formula that combines other nutrients (See next section on guggul and phosphates mixtures for further info).
For people interested in trying this product, research on guggul for reducing cholesterol generally used 50#75mg of guggulsterones per day in divided doses. There does not seem to be any major known side effects at this time. However, anything that has the potential to greatly alter thyroid metabolism has the potential for problems in certain people. In particular, if a person has clinical hypothyroidism and is being treated with synthetic thyroid medications, the addition of guggul could have some negative and unknown interactions.
Best advice is for people who are using thyroid meds to avoid guggul products, or be willing to work closely with a doctor to fine tune the dosage of their medications (assuming the guggul has any effects). For people not using thyroid meds, there should not be any issues. However, I would still recommend cycling this product 6*8 weeks on and 2*4 weeks off as a good though unproven schedule.

Fitness For Health

2:53 AM by dody · 0 comments

You should never have to feel that you need to get fit before walking into a gym or fitness studio. Fitness is for the average person who would like to prevent disease and remain healthy.
There are many reasons why you might consider hiring a fitness trainer to help you with advice on exercise and nutrition. One could be that you feel you need an expert in the field to help ensure they're doing all exercises correctly. Another could be that this person who wants to make good, effective exercise routines so you can get the most from your exercise sessions. Another could be that someone you want to help you manage your dietary needs. These are all good reasons to hire a fitness trainer, but how can we know whether to hire a coach that best suits your needs? Here are some guidelines to consider to help you make the right decision when choosing a fitness trainer.

First, you must ensure that the coach has to choose a course, a nationally accredited certification in the field of fitness. Some of the certification organizations that require a good and solid knowledge base minimum to obtain the certification are the IAIS (International Association of Sports Sciences), the ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine), the "NSCA" ( National Strength and Conditioning Association), and at a level slightly lower, but still acceptable certification is the "ACE (American Council on Exercise). Some others such as "NAFC (National Association for the Certification of fitness) or" NFPT (National Federation of Professional Trainers) are much less stringent requirements for certification.

While it is very important that physical trainer has to choose one of the best certifications, it is certainly not the only thing to look for when choosing a coach. There are some other things you want to be sure to ensure your satisfaction.

One thing to look for is whether or not his physical trainer has a plan to suit your individual needs. Some trainers get caught in a routine and train their customers a "one size fits all" for the year and while this may be good for the raw beginner to the overall effects of the muscles and connective tissue adaptation, which should be capable of power and have a vision of how to tailor exercise routines that best suit their needs. In other words, what they see as possible for you. Ask the trainer, what type of plan is that you see for me and how I benefit?

Another point to consider is whether your fitness trainer can be objective about their training. Your coach must always consider their needs in each training session. Sometimes the coach may have to modify their exercise routine because of an injury or simply because you have had a hard day and do not have the energy that normally have. Ask the trainer, how to evaluate myself every day before my session.

One of the most important things is, of course, if you and your fitness trainer has personality matching or simply, you should get along with each other and you should feel comfortable with your coach or be difficult to work with him / her. You need to understand what his coach is trying to do and their coach should give clear and detailed instructions. His fitness trainer should be open to what he has to say and be able to listen and respond to their concerns.

If you have decided to invest their time and money in pursuit of a lifestyle and is seeking the help of a professional gym, make sure you choose one that you know will give you everything you need to give you the results you want in one place safe, enjoyable way.
