Sleep and Weight Loss

Experts say that if you want to lose weight then you need to get enough sleep.  Researchers have reported that women who sleep 5 hours or less per night tend to weigh more  than women who sleep 7 hours per night.  Inadequate sleep can have a variety of effects on the metabolism and overall health.  When you don’t get enough sleep it can cause:  increased blood pressure, can increase the risk of heart disease, interferes with the body’s ability to metabolise carbs,  can cause  high levels of glucose in your blood, and can cause greater body-fat storage.  Getting your rest can play apart in your weight loss.   You will feel better overall and catching your ZZZ’s will help you look your best.

Diet to Lose Weight Fast

We have a lot of people who come to us because they want a diet in order to lose weight fast. This is one of our most common requests. I think one of the big reasons why is because we gain weight very quickly and it gets away from us, our weight does. Some of the common things that cause weight gain are life style changes. Marriage is a big one. Divorce is another big one. Starting a desk job is huge. If your use to being a student and walking on campus or if you had a more physical job before a desk job it’s easy to gain weight. Especially when people bring in donuts and birthday cake into the office to share. There are also happy things like having a baby. This can cause you to stop exercising for a while or feel like you don’t have enough time to dedicate to your fitness or healthy life style. People come to HCG Platinum because they want their weight to be taken off as fast as it was put on. They have definitely come to the right place.

The United States of Obesity [Infographic]

7 Fat Facts Weighing Down America

FAT FACT 1

It is old news that the United States has an obesity problem—but with 2/3rds of the nation rounding out as either overweight or obese, it is an issue that needs to be addressed. With billions spent every year on junk food, billions are also being spent on reversing the effects of the junk food, making America’s obesity cycle one huge (no pun intended) problem.

FAT FACT 2

Two thirds of Americans are either overweight or obese, but over 1/3 are obese – according to data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. This Fat Map shows where most of that 2/3 resides.

5 FATTEST STATES

Alabama (70.0%)
Mississippi (68.8%)
West Virginia (67.9%)
Tennessee (67.8%)
Kentucky (67.5%)

“Americans need to understand that overweight&obesity are literally killing us”
—Secretary Tommy G. Thompson, Department of Health and Human Services

FAT FACT 3

As America’s waistlines expand, American industries adapt. From larger dress sizes and movie theater seats to plus size toilet seats and coffins, every day items are now available in a super-size.

THE EFFECT OF FAT THROUGH THE YEARS

A size 4 dress size today would be considered a size 8 twenty years ago. No, you haven’t lost weight. Theater seats have increased 6” over the last twenty years. Extra butter anyone? The average hamburger has more than doubled in size in twenty years. Now that’s a super-size.

FAT FACT 4

Over 50% of Americans see themselves as being overweight. In case you are not sure if you are overweight or not, this BMI chart will help you figure it out—just use your height and weight to see where you fall.

FAT FACT 5

Before we judge smokers too harshly for how much they spend on a pack of cigarettes every day, let’s look a little closer at the junk food industry. Americans spent $3.9 billion on cookies in 2010, $6.2 billion on potato chips and a mean $37 billion on cola products—making waistlines bigger, and wallets smaller.

FAT FACT 6

We could just change our lifestyle, but most Americans don’t seem to consider that a solution. America is all about the quick fix, spending billions of dollars a year on procedures that attempt to reverse the effects of obesity.

FAT FACT 7

One thing is certain—with obesity on the rise, the only thing that is here to stay is fat, fat and more fat. With expensive reversal procedures that few can afford, obesity is quickly becoming society’s number one killer. If things don’t change, only two things are certain in this life—death by fat, and taxes.

Tips to Lose Weight Fast

I was talking to a friend the other day and she was telling me that she stared a diet last month. She said, “At the end of the month I didn’t lose any weight, I didn’t even lose one pound.” I said, “What was this diet you were doing?” she said, “Well, I tried really hard to exercise at least once a day, I went on a walk for about 30 minutes. I only let myself have one treat a day, and other than that I continued to eat what I usually ate, but I just ate smaller portions.” And I said, “Of course you’re not going to lose any weight doing that.” A lot of people want to know how to lose weight quickly, first of all, and they don’t know how to change their eating habits. Just exercise, taking a walk 30 min a day can help, but only if your eating the right food. A lot of time exercise doesn’t help anyone. I’m here to share with you some tips for losing weight fast.

One of the first things is varying you exercise. You definitely need to have some cardio; experts recommend 30 min a day and probably 4-5 times a week. You also have to do some cross training, which means weight lifting, when your weight lifting your able to burn fat all daylong. A lot of people miss weight lifting and think cardio is the best way. I think running is definitely the best bank for you buck if your planning on exercise to loss weight, but you got to get weight lifting in there, or your weight loss won’t be as effective. Second thing, you can’t keep eating the foods you always ate in smaller portions. You do need to include healthy greens with almost every meal and you also need to include lean meats. Protein is vital to losing weight; you can’t lose weight with out it. Third is to drink water. I know I always say this but I am going to say it again. Water is one of the best ways to lose weight. It’s good for you. It helps keep you skin hydrated, it keeps your system running, and it keeps you healthy. It will also help you lose especially if you drink water instead of any other liquids. So make sure your not getting you calories from other liquids.

Grilled Chicken with Lemon and Oregano

Yield Serves 8

Ingredients

1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (from 2 lemons)
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh oregano (or 1 tablespoon dried)
Coarse salt and ground pepper
4 chicken halves (1 1/2 pounds each) or 2 whole chickens, split
4 lemons, halved crosswise
Oregano sprigs (optional)

Directions

1. Make marinade: In a small bowl, whisk together lemon zest and juice, oregano, 2 teaspoons coarse salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper. Divide marinade between 2 large reseal able plastic bags. Place 2 chicken halves in each bag; shake to coat. Let marinate at room temperature 30 minutes, turning bags occasionally.
2. Preheat grill to medium. Remove chicken from marinade, and pat dry with paper towels. Place chicken, skin side up, on grill. Cover and cook, until lightly browned and cooked through, about 20 minutes. Turn chicken over; cover and cook until well browned, 10 to 15 minutes (an instant-read thermometer should register 175 degrees. When inserted into thickest part of meat, avoiding bone). If chicken is browning too quickly, move to cooler parts of grill or turn grill to low heat.
