Lose Weight Fast and Easy-I Just Found Out You Gotta Watch What You Drink

Most people want to lose weight fast and easy. Everybody knows that this is the desire of most people today. I just found out why you must watch what you drink. After all, there is an old saying that what goes into your mouth goes to the hips!

It seems diets always concentrate on food. Did you know that what is in your cup can be the difference between losing those last 10 pounds or letting them just stay parked on your hips?

Ok. Now on to the good news and bad news. First, the bad. Everybody knows that soda or pop is high in calories. So pick up a diet pop with artificial sweeteners and its healthy, right?

Nope, not right. Only diabetics should ever consume products with artificial sweeteners. We want to be not only slim but healthy and artificial sweeteners have a host of negative health effects. Great big flavored coffee drinks are horrendous! Stay away from them. The good news is all you must do is think about fats and sugars and cut out all the drinks that are high in either.

Healthy choices for drinks abound, many are cheaply and easily made right at home. The first investment you should make is in a good stainless water bottle. There is no need to buy water; you have it coming right out of your tap. Buy a good water filter for the faucet if the water quality in your town is poor. These take out almost all the agricultural chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and other chemical contaminants in tap water.

Everybody knows the body needs about 8 glasses of water a day to function properly. Now, most people have found out it is OK to include tea in that count. Water also helps speed weight loss. You won’t feel as hungry before meals if you have been drinking water, and you’ll be less likely to overeat. Keep weight loss and health at the forefront of all your decisions. Add a little lemon juice to the water, or a slice of lime or flavor. No sugar though!

Everybody says another perfect fluid choice is green tea. Look at all the diet supplements that have green tea; it promotes weight loss and health. The phytochemicals in green tea protect the body from free radical damage and speed up the metabolism helping you reach your weight loss goals faster. Make a big pot
every morning, fill up a couple of water bottles with it and drink that healthy tea all day.

It doesn’t take long to change your tastes from pop to healthy drinks. Most people who do this find they are amazed at the pounds that are shed and the belly fat that is gone, with just changing what you drink.

Healthy drinks promote increased metabolism and energy, speeding weight loss! Make sure you include them in your diet everyday!

Obesity Help-How Pesticides Could Be Wreaking Havoc On Your Weight Loss Efforts

There are many who are obese in our society today. The rising obesity statics and obesity facts tell the story of how much a problem this is today. If you are seeking obesity help, you will find the following information highly useful.


A just released report by the White House Task Force on Childhood Obesity has made an astonishing connection between a class of chemicals and obesity. The chemicals are endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs), now dubbed "obesogens" for their suspected role in obesity.

Although scientists have suspected this link between these chemicals and obesity for years, and many citizen advocates have fought for the decreased use of these chemicals, the recent release of the task force's findings have brought this issue to the mainstream news' attention.

These chemicals have now become ubiquitous in the environment. They are in agricultural chemicals, pharmaceuticals, plastics, cosmetics, and have made their way into our water systems. It takes very minuscule amounts to have an effect on our bodies and the effects don't stop when the exposure stops. They are suspected to cause cancers, fertility problems, and unexplained weight gain. They make weight loss very difficult.

What these chemicals do is interfere with our body's ability to regulate our metabolism. A slow metabolism equals weight gain. No matter what you do to diet you may not be achieving the weight loss you should be. It may be the reason you can't lose that last 10 or 20 pounds. So what can you do to achieve that last bit of weight loss, burn that belly fat, and avoid obesogens? Follow these 4 tips:

-Do a little studying on the primary sources of these chemicals and try to avoid them. Soft plastics and BPA containing plastics are everywhere, but you can learn to spot them and avoid them. The linings on canned food contain BPA, hard plastic water bottles also contain it. Buy a reusable stainless steel water bottle and use it. Look for plastics that are BPA free. Never heat up food in plastic; the chemicals in the plastic will leach into the food.

-Avoid fatty foods. Not only for the fat calories but because fats are the place where these chemicals are stored. Look for no-fat or low-fat dairy products, lean meats, and lean fish.

-Buy a good water filter. These chemicals have made it into our water systems and municipal water treatment plants only remove disease causing organisms and sediment from the water. They do not remove pesticides, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, or other toxins. Read the label on the filter you buy to be sure it removes VOC, volatile organic chemicals.

-Avoid pesticides in food. Buy organic fruits, vegetables, grains, and dairy and know which vegetables and fruits have lower levels of pesticide use if you can't buy all organic. By just changing a few things in your diet you can make a huge difference in your exposure to these chemicals. The Environmental Working Group has a great list of the most pesticide-laden fruits and vegetables and another list containing those with the least.

Be aware, make a few simple changes, and watch the fat come off!

If you are looking at how to lose weight in one month, did you know bee's can help? If you haven't heard of the benefits of bee pollen, not only for fast weight loss but for a whole host of health benefits, than get ready to learn! Bee pollen is collected by bees in flowers, mixed with nectar then taken to the hive to use as food for the bees. The little pollen granules are collected for human use at the entrance to the hive where special devices are placed to collect the pollen as bees pass into the hive.

This incredibly nutrient rich bee product contains all the nutrients needed by humans. It is the only substance known to provide 100% complete nutrition. All the vitamins, minerals, amino acids, fatty acids, and other
nutrients are packed into bee pollen. It contains more protein than beef, chicken,or other meats by weight. This amazing food will help you burn fat fast!

Bee pollen even contains natural antibiotics to help you ward of illnesses that slow you down and interfere with your weight loss program. Bee pollen has been used as far back as the ancient Greeks. Over 2,000
years ago Olympic athletes were using bee pollen to increase their energy, endurance, and strength. Athletes and busy executives use bee pollen to promote sustained energy and mental functioning.

It actually boosts your metabolism and not only provides power and muscle, but increases the rate you burn up the calories. Bee pollen is a natural energizer, it won't lead to a crash a few hours later, it actually assists the body in increasing the amount of sustainable energy you have. Bee pollen works at the cellular
level to increase metabolism. Imagine feeling empowered, lively, and read to face the world.

When compared to other weight loss foods being promoted like goji berries and acai berries, bee pollen is the only substance that contains complete nutrition. It is high in the B vitamin complex to give you even more
energy. Bee pollen is also rich in protein and lecithin to increase your metabolism rate. You will feel like exercising, getting out and taking a vigorous walk, heading to the gym for a workout.

Bee pollen's many health benefits, from boosting the immune system to combating the discomforts of PMS or enhancing libido all help restore a vibrant body which helps you on the path to fast weight loss and well-being!
If you have bee allergies or hay fever you may want to skip the bee pollen!
