A Diet And Exercise Program for Cellulite Removal

Published by:

It can be very frustrating for women when they try several so called “miracle” cellulite cures only to be disappointed by the results. As cellulite can affect up to 90 per cent of women, the anti cellulite treatment industry is a huge money earner and there is many bogus claims out there surrounding hundreds of different products.

The reality is that diet and exercise still remains the best way to get rid of cellulite. But it is human nature for people to want a quick solution that they are willing to spend hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars on snake oil products that have slick marketing. A diet and exercise program should take about 8 weeks for you to see its effects and this means you need to be prepared to work at it and stay committed for the long haul.

The diet component of an anti cellulite plan doesn’t need to be anything strenuous. The aim is to remove foods from your diet that increase the toxins that cause the fat cells to clump together. This means you need to limit the amount of processed foods that you consume and stay off the alcohol and sweets.

Exercise is more than just hitting the treadmill for half an hour. In order to tighten up the problem areas, you need to do a large amount of weight training. The weights will tone up your cellulite and make your legs and hips more shapely and smooth. You should still do cardio exercise in order to burn off the thin layer of cellulite fat and its best to use those exercises that work the legs such as stair steppers, stationary bikes and the treadmill.

For most women, diet and exercise can make significant in roads into their cellulite. However, some may still need a quality anti cellulite cream in order to see good results. A cream can be applied twice a day and after exercise.


Lose Weight Fast with Paleo Dieting a Diet that Works?

Published by:

In search of diets that work to help lose weight quickly? Consider the Paleo diet. Paleo dieting is also referred to as the caveman diet, stone age diet, Paleolithic diet or hunter-gatherer diet. It is a nutritional diet based on eating natural plants and animals as they were eaten by our ancestors the cave men.


Based on our ancestors from the Paleolithic Age, it covers the period of human nutrition up to the Neolithic (agriculture) age. Paleo believers outline that most humans have been Paleolithic for over 2,500,000 years and have only been Neolithic for about 10,000 years.

Diet Facts

Since man kind has eaten meat and vegetables for millions of years and only recently developed the industrial techniques to extract nutrients from foods and process food for storage, Paleo followers suggest that we go back to the roots of eating in order to encourage healthy lifestyles.

Of course like many nutrition communities there are varying levels of Paleo. The majority agree on the following: eat whole natural foods specifically meat, seafood, vegetables (including root vegetables like yams and sweet potatoes and eliminate dairy, grains and process foods with refined sugars.

Stricter followers argue that fruit and nuts should also be eliminated as these would only have been available seasonally to hunters and gatherers. They eliminate legumes and vegetables that only became available in the Neolithic age like tomatoes and potatoes.

Latest Reading

“The Paleo Solution: The Original Human Diet” written by Robb Wolf a well known member of the primal/paleo community was recently released as an up-to-date reference of the hunter/gatherer lifestyle. The book offers weight loss tips for following a hunter/gatherer diet, with meal plans and tools to help the reader understand the concepts and theories of this community.


The diet implies that hunter and gatherers did not suffer from diseases plaguing our current civilization and scientists and nutritionists suggest this is due to the lack of calories in their diets and not what they were actually eating. In addition, there is no evidence that followers of this diet approach are actually mimicking the diets of people in Paleolithic eras as there is no accurate information to outline them.

This low-carb, non-dairy approach has many variations and books to follow. With the reduction of sugar and processed food, the emphasis on fruits and vegetables and the removal of most grains and dairy the Paleo Diet will help you lose weight fast.

Want to Improve Your Health? Learn How to Cook!

Published by:

Just about everything in life is a trade off.  If you want the convenience of fast food you are going to be consuming a lot of unhealthy junk.  Most convenience food is highly processed and loaded with preservatives that are not good for you.  The truth is that over time, these harmful toxins can build up in your body tissue.  Because of this, if you are serious about being healthy long term, one of the best things that you can learn how to do is cook.  Cooking at home will not only help you to improve your health, it will also help improve your financial situation. It is amazing how much cooking at home can save you.

While there is no need to become a gourmet, you do need to focus on making healthy foods.  Cooking the same unhealthy food at home is not going to be of benefit.  You will want to stick to lean proteins, fruits, vegetables and whole grains.  A good rule of thumb is that other than grains, try to shop on the perimeter of the grocery store and stay away from foods in boxes.  Unless processed foods are USDA certified, they are generally overly processed and loaded with preservatives.  What you want is whole clean foods.

A good way to stay motivated is to try foods that you have never had before.  For instance, if you love pasta but know that white carbohydrates are not good for you, you may want to learn how to cook quinoa.  There are many snack items that do not require any preparation at home such as fruits and Greek yogurt, but learning to prepare a few special items can be fun.  I like to try new hummus recipes because the high protein and fiber content really helps keep me full.  Experiment and learn what works for you.

Best Option for Quick Weight Loss

Published by:

If you want quick weight loss, the first thing that will come to your mind is to go to diet gurus or buy diet plans and programs in order to reach your goal. And sometimes, you might even have to spend a lot of money just to maintain the program. But believe it or not, there is a way to achieve quick weight loss safely, without needing to rely on the many diet programs and gurus out there. All you need is a good understanding of weight loss principles.

It’s really simple. In order to lose weight, you need to burn more calories than what you consume. If you’re consuming more, then you have two options — it’s either you lessen your calorie intake, or increase the calories you burn.

Some people would choose the first option because it’s easier to cut down on calorie intake than to exercise more intensively (and some people just don’t have the time for that). But actually, this is a slow way to weight loss because the body is designed to adapt to your calorie intake. You might notice a shedding of a few pounds at first, but your fat-burning mechanisms eventually adjust to the low intake and will start burning less calories. At this point, no weight loss will ever occur.

What you can do is to find a fast diet that doesn’t fight the way your body works. Exercise is a good way to increase the number of calories you burn by boosting metabolism. Another way is to eat large quantities of food at the right time. This also stimulates your metabolism, causing you to burn more calories. As long as you don’t eat so much all the time, then weight loss is sure to happen. Weight loss might be hard to achieve but it is possible, especially if your body is on your side.
