Garcinia Cambogia: The Holy Grail of Weight Loss

custom594_garcinia-cambogia-plant  Everybody today is looking for some way to lose weight.  Yet, we just can’t seem to get ourselves to the gym because we have no time or just don’t feel like it.  Last week, I wrote about raspberry ketones and how they can assist in weight loss.  This week I would like to discuss with you about another weight loss supplement that even Dr. Oz has called, “The Holy Grail of Weight Loss.”dr-oz-garcinia-cambogia

Garcinia Cambogia is a small, pumpkin-shaped fruit, sometimes called tamarind. According to WebMD, garcinia cambogia is native to Indonesia; it is also grown in India, Southeast Asia, and West and Central Africa. It has long been used in traditional South Asian dishes, including curries and chutneys. Many also use the fruit for curing fish and preservation.

Adding this ingredient to meals is considered to be effective in making meals more “filling.” In some villages in Malaysia, garcinia is used to make a soup that is eaten before meals for weight loss because of garcinia’s appetite-blocking abilities.

This plant offers one of the least expensive herbal supplements on the market. The ingredient from the rind of the fruit could hasten your weight-loss efforts. The natural extract is called hydroxycitric acid (HCA), and researchers claim that HCA can double or triple one’s weight loss.  With proper weight-loss efforts (dieting and exercising), the average person taking HCA lost an average of four pounds a monthGarcinia may also be great for emotional eaters.

So how exactly does Garcinia Cambogia work?

weight-loss-with-garcinia-cambogiaThe HCA extract from garcinia cambogia supplement aids in weight loss by doing two things: It helps to block fat, and it suppresses your appetite.

HCA blocks fat by slowing down a key enzyme that our body needs to make fat from carbohydrates: Citrate lyase. Usually carbohydrates or sugars that are not used immediately or stored in other forms are converted into fats. According to WebMD, when HCA inhibits citrate lyase, the fat-making process is halted and the production of LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides decrease.

Therefore, HCA also suppresses appetite by increasing serotonin levels. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter in our brain that makes us feel good. It’s a target of many antidepressant medications. Having low levels of serotonin may make you feel depressed or anxious; it drives many people into emotional or reactive eating. According to Psychology Today, by increasing serotonin levels, HCA improves mood and suppresses the drive to react to stressful situations with food. In other words, as we eat less, our body senses this and it releases stored fat in our fat cells.

I’m sure at this point your wondering is it safe?

The plant and its fruit have been eaten safely for years.  However, don’t take this supplement if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.  I always recommend speaking with your doctor before taking any type of supplement, especially if you are on medication for a specific reason.

So where can you get this?

Well, Max is the Ultimate Fat Burner.

Motivation

motivationIn the world of life, motivation is the key to success.  This is more than true especially for business and those involved in anything that has to do with sales and marketing.  I find that a good minimum 15 minutes of personal development is all that is needed to keep your motivation up.  I am a big fan of Jim Rohn.  If you do not know who this great man is/was, I went ahead and took the liberty of citing his bibliography from his website (https://jimrohn.com/) below.

“For more than 40 years, Jim Rohn honed his craft like a skilled artist-helping people the world over sculpt life strategies that have expanded their imagination of what is possible. Those who had the privilege of hearing him speak can attest to the elegance and common sense of his material. It is no coincidence, then, that he is widely regarded as one of the most influential thinkers of our time, and thought of by many as a national treasure. Jim authored countless books and audio and video programs, and helped motivate and shape an entire generation of personal-development trainers and hundreds of executives from America’s top corporations.

Born to an Idaho farming family in the mid-1900s, Jim was ingrained with a work ethic that has served him well throughout his life. At 25, he met his mentor Earl Shoaff. And over the next six years he made his first fortune, yet didn’t get into speaking until he moved to Beverly Hills, California, when a friend at the Rotary Club asked him to tell his success story, which Rohn titled “Idaho Farm Boy Makes It to Beverly Hills.”

His speech went over so well that he received more invitations to share it, and better yet, they started paying him for it. In the beginning, he spoke in front of college and high-school classes and at service clubs, before moving on to seminars in 1963, which launched him into the personal-development business. From then on, Jim Rohn became a trailblazer in the self help and personal development industry, impacting the lives of millions through his life-changing material.

Jim Rohn focused on the fundamentals of human behavior that most affect personal and business performance. His is the standard to which those who seek to teach and inspire others are compared. He possessed the unique ability to bring extraordinary insights to ordinary principles and events, and the combination of his substance and style captures the imagination of those who hear or read his words.

Jim is known as one of the great wordsmiths of our time.”

I also decided to provide a video to one of my favorite speeches from Jim Rohn, “The Art of Sowing.”

 

T.G.I.F.

Group of friends having dinner outside.Thank Goodness It’s Friday is what is on everybody’s mind today.  It could be also due to the fact that it is pretty much everyone’s favorite day of the week – that is, unless we’re talking about Saturday.  As Friday afternoon draws nearer, everyone starts to consider how they can make this weekend an outstanding one.

For many, weekends can be the biggest temptation known to mankind.  These are the times we dread especially if we are maintaining diets – especially if the workweek gives us a better structure than the weekend does.

If eating junk food is a problem over the weekend, you can decrease cravings by adding some structure to your weekends as well. Try something that includes physical activity – a scheduled walk around the neighborhood with your family, taking a yoga class, joining a volleyball league, or even walking around the mall. Be careful if you choose the mall route though – the cookie or ice cream stands can be a serious temptation, and giving yourself a “reward” after your walk could set back you’re eating.

If your family tends to go out to dinner on Friday or Saturday nights, you don’t necessarily have to avoid the temptation of going. Get out with the family while the getting is good, and order one of the lower-calorie, better-for-you choices on the menu. If your family tends to go somewhere with heavier choices, speak up! You can do a ton for your health by asking you family to support your diet.

Weekends don’t have to be a make or break for you. The important thing is to get an idea of how you might “cheat” over the weekend, and curtail that behavior if possible.

Arthritis

According to the National Library of Medicine, arthritis is inflammation of one or more joints.  A joint is the area where two bones meet, but did you know that arthritis is more than just achy joints?  The Arthritis Foundation states that arthritis is an inflammatory disorder that consists of over 100 different diseases, affecting people of all ages, including children.  Just like many other diseases, one might suffer from stiffness, swelling, joint pain and limited movement.  This can be associated with arthritis because of the inflammation.  I have noticed that there are many different over-the-counter medicines and prescriptions that an individual can purchase.  These medications will help alleviate the pain and suffering from arthritis, but what do you think they are doing to your stomach lining?  I would like to suggest lifestyle changes that anyone can make that will help alleviate the pain and suffering from arthritis.

  1. Do plenty of exercises such as walking, swimming, bike riding (if you have balance problems consider using a stationary bike), yoga and something that I enjoy doing some form of martial arts.
  2. Get plenty of rest.  If your joints are aching relax.  Let them rest.
  3. Lose weight.
  4. Do physical therapy.  Consult with your doctor regarding this.
  5. Lower your stress levels.  Stress is something that all of us have to deal with, but if you can reduce it, that will help extend your life and reduce the inflammation of your joints.

Even though there are many forms of arthritis and they are long-term and cannot be cured, it does not mean that it cannot be managed.

The truth about weight loss

The body is an amazing piece of machinery, it’s complexity tends to leave us perplexed and curious. When it comes to dieting we become even more dumbfound as to where we begin. Education and understanding is usually a good first step.  When we use the word fat, it is usually not in a good way. Dieters hate the word “fat”, overweight individuals hate the word “fat”, as do bodybuilders, models, and athletes. Fat has gotten such a bad rap, so we decided to create a fact sheet about fat, and let you decide if “fat” is a friend or foe.

Remember when the goal is to lose weight you need to consume less calories than you burn, also look at the nutrition label and see how many calories are derived from fat. Keep your daily fat intake at less than 41 grams per day – Yes we hate the word fat, but we need it. Moderation is key, eating smart is key. For instance a Burger King Whopper contains 40 grams of fat. An average serving of chicken breast weighs in at about 6 ounces and has about 4.4 grams of fat.

  • An average, size 10, slim female carries approximately 100,000 calories of fat on her body. One pound of fat is equal to about 3,500 calories, this would mean that the average woman carries about 28.5 lbs of fat on her body. That’s equal to 54 packs of butter in total but before you get too depressed, it’s also enough to fuel the energy required to shop for 86 days!
  • Thinking can make you fat! Brand new research, conducted at Laval University in Canada has shown that although thinking hard and concentrating doesn’t require any extra calories, it does stimulate the body to feel hungrier. So much so in fact that volunteers of the study that were asked to carry out mentally challenging tasks went on to eat 253 more calories (almost 30% more) in just one meal than those that were told to daydream.
  • Most people gain an average of just 1g of extra body fat a day – but before you reach for that second slice of cake consider this… 1 gram a day equals 365 grams of extra body fat a year. 365 grams of extra body fat over 25 years can add up to an additional 20 lbs in fat.
  • The average person carries over 50 Billion fat cells, or roughly 8 times more fat cells than there are people on this earth. (est 6 Billion)
  • Fat cells do not increase in number after puberty. However, fat cells can grow up to 10 times it’s normal size. When you gain or lose weight you are not increasing/decreasing the number of fat cells, rather you are inflating or deflating the size of the cells you currently have.
  • Fat cells exist in all parts of the body except the eyelids, parts of the esophagus, the brain and the penis.
  • Female breasts are composed almost entirely of fat.
  • Spot reduction, is a myth. Situps will not make your tummy slimmer, it will only build muscle under the layer of fat that exists. Use calorie restrictions. Our 30-Day Challenge includes our great tasting meal replacement shake that is only 100 calories, our fat burning supplement Max, and our antioxidant hunger suppressant Limitless, everything you need to lose weight and feel great! Add some sort of cardio to the mix and you should have the 6 pack of your dreams in no time.
  • 1 pound of body fat is equal to 3,500 calories.  To burn off 3,500 calories the average woman would need to do 6 step classes, walk briskly for almost 9 hours or run for 33 miles. But don’t let this scare you. The body will burn on average 60 calories an hour while sleeping. To eat 3,500 calories she’d need to chomp through almost 50 apples or just (3) 8 ounce bags of extruded cheese based puffs with each bag containing 1269 calories.
  • At 9 calories per gram, fat is the most calorific nutrient we can eat. Alcohol contains 7 Kcals per gram. Protein and carbohydrate contain approximately 4 Kcals per gram.
  • The places you predominantly store fat and the places you lose it from first are largely determined by your gender (women tend to store it around their hips, bottom and thighs, men around their abdomen) and your genes – so choose your parents wisely!
  • Fat cells live for an average of ten years.  Once a fat cell dies the body makes a brand new one to take its place. However, once brain cells die they are gone for good which is why as we age we may lose our memory but love handles can stay for life!
  • Fat cells die at the rate of 150 per second.
  • An average fat cell can only store half a millionth of a gram of fat therefore it takes 4 million fat cells to store the energy equivalent of a Tic Tac.
  • Remember how important water is for your weight loss goals. It provides an internal shower that releases toxins from your body. Try to consume 100 oz a day.
