The Key To Losing Weight

When talking about losing weight there are many theories and concept involved as to how to lose weight but none of them truly explain how you gained that weight in the first place. Well, I have my own theory, it has been working for me my whole life and it's really simple once you understand the simple concept behind it.

Oftentimes, when we try to lose weight and keep it off, our bodies resist such attempts because calories and fat to it are like money and bank accounts to us. You want something in this world; you have to pay for it. You want to live? Then you have to consume calories and fat. Yes, that's right I said fat.

Your body needs calories - cash - in order to generate new muscle cells, bone cells, etc... (It also needs the raw materials to build them, such as protein, vitamins, minerals, and so forth.) Just like you need money - or calories, by our analogy - to get a new car, new house, and whatever else you might desire.

When we lose weight, we are not only burning calories in excess of what we take in, but we are also dipping into our fat stores, which is the body's bank account for calories, where all those extra calories go (which is what got you fat in the first place).

It's important to realize this because the reason why many of us feel so extraordinarily hungry when we are losing weight is because our bodies are alarmed that its bank account of stored calories, otherwise known as fat, is being emptied out!

It's screaming for a cash infusion, so to speak, and its language is hunger and more literally the growling noises from your stomach. Our bodies are literally resisting our attempts to remake ourselves because we human beings are, for the most part, programmed to eat to excess.

Due to millions of years of evolution, we have developed a penchant for sweets and fats and the high-calorie foods that contain them. Now thanks to modern civilization, such foods are easily available, without us having to hunt and expend much energy to acquire them.

Our bodies simply have not yet adapted to the environment of abundance. It was honed over millions of years to excel in an environment of scarcity; it can't change overnight just because human society has, so quickly and drastically. So if you really want to lose weight you have to work for it just like you do to make money. The idea is to find a balance between eating and staying active, similar to working and living your life - you need to have balance in order to stay at your best and healthiest.

Palm Treo Cell Phones And Children Using Them
It's gotten to the point where the New York City public school system has banned them. Long a hotly contested issue, the move forced the matter into the top of the public's awareness: do kids really need cell phones, anyway? Of course, the safety benefits of keeping in touch are undeniable. No parent would agree to giving up the ability to contact their child at anytime, practically anywhere. But the problem, obviously, is that kids, being kids, do not use cell phones simply to stay in touch...

Selling Gold May Be Simple If You Know What To Do
Thinking about selling gold? It could seem deceptively simple, but here's what you need to know. First off, realize that many dealers will pay anywhere from ten to twenty percent less than what your gold's actually worth because they need to make a profit. Unless you're a dealer yourself, you most likely have less than fifty grams of gold to sell, so don't expect to negotiate better terms. If you had more than a thousand grams to offer, you might be able to horse-trade, but as an...

Carbohydrates vs Obesity
The War on Obesity has meant a War on Fat for about two decades now. Yet Americans are fatter than ever now. As of 2008, 32.2% of men in the United States are Obese as are 35.5% of women. This one fact alone has lead many researchers to wonder whether the culprit for our country's top health problem lies elsewhere. And so evidence has been building up that has turned attention elsewhere, to carbohydrates. Carbohydrates generally refer to foods that are rich in starch, such are bread, pasta,...

Treating Sleep Apnea Snoring
More and more people are searching for alternative cures for the condition of sleep apnea, because they have become dissatisfied with the standard medical treatments available, which treat the symptoms rather than curing the problem. Although it is generally known by everyone that those suffering with the condition snore quite heavily, snoring alone is not enough for a sleep apnea diagnosis. That said, how do you determine if you, or someone you love has this condition? Only a medical doctor...

Prosthetics for Six Million Dollar Men
