How Toxins Make Us Fat & What We Can Do about It

How toxins make us fat and what to do about itThe fact that toxins make us fat has been proven many times. Toxicity and obesity are directly connected with each other, which is one of the reasons so many people struggle with weight loss.

 

The fast growth in the rate of obesity and type II diabetes in the past few decades has prompted scientists to look into possible causes which extend beyond diet and exercise. Various scientific research experiments have been conducted to establish the link, with very interesting results.

7 Reasons to Use Far Infrared at Least Once a Week

7 reasons to use far infrared at least once a weekThere are many reasons to use far infrared for better health. First of all, far infrared is not some recent technological invention. It is part of nature. The sun emits far infrared, and so do humans and animals. Far infrared is an invisible spectre of sunlight of between 4-1000 microns – the longest of the infrared range. Only the smallest range is useful to us though – 6-14 microns.  80% of far infrared is produced by the sun.

 

It is not only the sun that produces far infrared – our body does too. When we are ill, the production of far infrared is diminished, which makes the metabolic rate slow down. We start to feel cold and lack energy as a result. Far infrared supports all the life processes in the cell.

Five Reasons Most Diets Fail & How to Succeed

Five reasons most diets fail & how to succeedWould you agree that few people can say that they haven’t tried to diet at least once in their life?  And in so many cases success is so short-lived… It has happened to me more than once, which made me ask myself – why do most diets fail to bring long-term results?

 

What normally happens is that we see a friend who has managed to lose some weight, ask her how she did it. She shares the latest diet tips with us. We read more about it online.

 

We find more raving fans of the diet on media websites. We get excited about it, and decide to give it a try. Eventually we commit to doing it, especially if a special event or a summer holiday are on the cards.

 

We starve ourselves for a few weeks (like I did with Weight Watchers), eat cabbage soup until we want to puke, or whatever the diet in question tells us to do. If we are really tough on ourselves and stick to it, we manage to achieve a desired weight and the look we have made so much sacrifice for. What happens next? We relax, decide that we have suffered long enough, and deserve a reward. That biscuit is not going to do much harm…  And maybe one more… (more…)
