Weight Loss Products That You Can Try

Over-the-counter weight-loss remedies will always be in abundance because there are so many people that want to lose weight. Understanding where to begin when looking at all of these products is probably the toughest part. Getting your doctor’s approval on your weight loss plan of action is probably a good idea. Weight-loss treatments can now be chosen after you have discussed everything with your doctor.

Fat blockers are one of the more popular supplements that you can buy over-the-counter for helping with weight loss. The way fat blockers work is that instead of the body digesting the fats you have eaten, it is not able to. If you are looking for something to help you lose weight, and you want it over-the-counter, try Alli which is a fat blocker. If you want to buy Alli at double the strength, you can get it online or in stores, but you will need a prescription. Before trying this, you may want to look at the side effects that are associated with it, though. In fact, some consumer groups are trying to ban products containing Orlistat because of cases involving liver damage and other serious health problems. While Alli and other medications containing Orlistat are still available as of this writing, you should keep up with the news and research on this product if you’re interested in it.

If you like green tea, you will absolutely love yerba mate which is an alternative weight-loss solution from South America. Drinking yerba mate can be beneficial for your body and nutritious too.

Instead of crashing after drinking a cup of coffee, you might want to try yerba mate because it does have a stimulant but will not have the crash. Additionally, if you are interested in elevating the fat burning effects of this tea with the aid of supplements, you can view my raspberry ketones review for one that you may consider. Yerba mate studies have shown that it can actually prevent heart disease and repair DNA damage. It also has the ability to increase your metabolism naturally which is going to help you burn off extra fat.

Another natural food, Goji berries, grows in Asia and is very beneficial to eat. They are also known as wolfberries in Chinese medicine, and they have a long history of being used as a tonic and to promote good health. More recently, we have seen many brands of Goji juice being introduced, and as long as the juice is pure, it contains many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Goji juice is a beverage that can literally increase your metabolism to a point where you start losing weight, and give you more energy at the same time. Unlike the claims that Acai berry sellers state, Goji juice is a great way to cure certain things but not everything that may be wrong with you.

Each year, different over-the-counter weight loss pills are being introduced to everyone. Researching new products can be time-consuming, but if you want to lose weight, you will spend the time investigating these over-the-counter weight loss medications. To succeed at weight loss, but remain safe, always check the side effects and hazards involved when using certain products.

Six Pack Secrets to Chiseled Abdominals

by David Grisaffi

There are six basic aspects of any abdominal workout routine you must master to obtain the six pack abs you have been chasing.  You can do crunches until you toss your dinner and not meet your goal of a beautiful set of six pack abs.  You have to use a comprehensive approach that addresses nutrition (diet), water intake, supplementation, exercises protocol, proper sleep rhythms, and the detoxification of your body.  If you do all of these things you will acquire a six pack of abs and a nice set of obliques to frame around them.

Nutrition

It does not mater what your workout goal is, you will never obtain a set of defined abs if you do not eat properly.  I am not talking about just skipping the fast food crap.  I mean carbs, protein, and the right time to load up on each.  If you have extra weight to lose, you should be careful not to restrict your calories to much when working out. 

Just restrict starchy carbs and useless calories like all sugars. If you restrict calories too much you will lose muscle and water, not the fat cells you want to shed.  Eating a meal that contains complex carbohydrates like rice, pasta, bagels, fresh fruit, or baked potatoes
about 30-60 minutes before your workout will provide a more sustained energy level and the carbohydrates that you need to keep your blood sugar level up. Also consume organic food whenever possible.

What you eat after your workout is just as important as what your have before.  You are going to need the same types of carbohydrates, but you will need to add some protein for muscle repair and growth. I would suggest a recovery meal. The recovery meal serves two purposes: 1) It replaces lost carbs and influences the amount of cortisol (a hormone which reacts to stress) your body will release. 2) It loads up amino acids into your muscle to begin the re-building of muscle tissue. If you miss this window of opportunity you will not gain muscle and lose body fat as fast.

NOTE: Cortisol – Increases blood pressure, blood sugar and reduces immune responses.

All Mighty Water

Hydration is an often overlooked aspect of all workout routines.  If you
do not consume enough water while working out or for that matter during your entire day you have wasted your time and may have caused damage to yourself.  Not enough water equals dehydration.  Drinking sugary/sports drinks, caffeinated beverages only dehydrate your body quicker.  You should try to drink 7 to 10 ounces of room temperature water every 20 minutes while working out.  Water helps to regulate your body temperature; deliver oxygen to your muscle tissues by keeping blood volume elevated. It also assists the kidneys in removing biological wastes, and enhances with fat burning and muscle growth. A good rule to follow is to drink ½ of your body weight in ounces per day.
