Best way to avoid saggy skin during a weight loss regiment

It really doesn't matter how big you get (as long as you are not grossly overweight). What matters is how healthy your skin is, and the skin type you were born with.

The Vitamins that directly affect skin health are...
Making sure you are taking these daily along with lots of water for hydration is VITAL to help your skin repair itself.

If you can stand to do it, you should replace EVERY FLUID in your diet with water--but make sure you don't drink too much. You need to keep your skin hydrated, but you can make yourself sick if you drink TOO much.

Why can't youeat more than one meal a Day

Maybe what you eat for lunch contains large amouts of fibre, and as you know fibre 'grows' in your stomach, therefore fills you up for longer (for me its very long). If you think this is affecting your concentration in school etc, you should cut down on fibre and switch to other foods. Try get down the gym too, as it should increase your appetite ( but you will only gain healthy muscle if you keep exercising )

some tips on how to get bigger biceps and triceps

if you want bigger biceps andtriceps you need to do specific exercises to target these areas, such as bicep barbell or dumbell curls, tricep dips, close grip bench press, tricep extensions. also you need to eat the right food to build that muscle and that food is protein and carbs, but to build muscle you need to eat 1g of protein per pound of bodyweight so for example if you weigh 150 pounds then you need to consume 150g of protein a day.

Losing water weight

When losing weight its inevitable that water will make up some of the weight loss. No matter how we lose weight or how long the weight loss takes everyone will lose water. Many factors determine the amount of water we lose in comparison to fat loss, they include:


which exercise is selected

the diet chosen - for example, a low carb diet may increase water loss

calorie intake - lowering calorie intake too much will cause more water loss

the physical state of the person - the amount of protein and carb stores before new diet

The water weight loss comes from a net loss of protein and carbohydrates especially during the first few weeks of a reduction in calories. On reducing calories the body needs to rely more on energy within the body and thus breaks down protein and carbohydrate for metabolism. When these nutrients are metabolised water is released. Fat stores do supply a little of the energy but at first a good proportion comes from protein and the limited stores of carbohydrates within the cells.

Easy Weight Loss Tips

If you know you're going to go overboard with the appetizer dinner rolls, ask the server to remove them from the table. If you ask me, it's virtually impossible to practice portion control within the scent of freshly baked bread.

Avoid the temptation to think, "It's free. I really should eat it." It may be free to your wallet, but not your waistline!

Easy Weight Loss Tips

A milkshake is a tempting sweet treat during the dog days of summer, but like ice cream, it will wreak havoc on your diet. Even small fast food style shakes have around 26 to 30 grams of fat!

For a lighter alternative choose a smoothie or make your own milkshake at home using ingredients like low-fat frozen yogurt, 2% milk, and sugar-free chocolate sauce.

Walking For Weight Loss Tricks That Cause Immediate Fat Loss!

Here are 2 "walking for weight loss" tricks that turn walking from a SO-SO fat loss exercise to a powerful exercise that burns off pounds of fat within 10 days. Use these 2 tricks and you can't help but to lose weight.

Walking for Weight Loss

1. Realize that plain walking doesn't really stimulate fat loss

Your body is use to plain 'ol walking around. It's adjusted to it and it no longer truly stimulates the body to change. HO-HUM! Instead, make 1 SLIGHT change and you take walking from ho-hum weight loss to WOW weight loss.

That change... you make sure to walk on an incline.

Whether its a hill or a treadmill you can incline, this 1 change ramps up weight loss big time. Weight loss becomes easy. I recommend that if you use a treadmill, be sure to incline it around 15 degrees and then walk on it for 20-30 minutes as often as you can (hopefully 5+ days a week).

I can't emphasize enough how important this small change is for weight loss.

2. A simple secret that helps you to burn 30% more calories during walks

No, it doesn't involve walking faster, wearing ankle weights, or carrying pink little dumbbells. No, instead the simple trick is to take 1 big, deep breath each minute you're walking. If you want to take more than 1 for each minute, even better.

This works for burning off more calories due to the added oxygen getting into your body. Oxygen is a catalyst for burning fat. The more oxygen you get into your body, the better weight loss goes. So while you're walking, take a lot of deep breaths to maximize fat loss. Heck, you can take deep breaths anytime and you'll improve your weight loss results.

Try out these 2 walking for weight loss tricks and see for yourself that the results and improvements in your body and health happen within days.

If you're SICK and TIRED of getting the same old boring weight loss advice... you know, like "Eat more fruits and vegetables, drink 8 glasses of water, jog, and blah blah blah", then...
