Best ways to change your looks through weight loss

Weight loss depends on a variety of factors that includes nutrients, eating habits, exercises and cooking plans that provide information to keep a balanced diet. Doctors believe that it is the overweight that invites a variety of diseases like heart attacks, diabetes, cancer, fatty liver diseases and other health problems. Today people try to reduce their weight through diet control and other fitness measures prescribed by medical professionals. Let�s have a look on the homely tips that you can practice at home.

Eat healthy food

Healthy food is the main factor that controls your weight. For weight loss you need to follow a balanced diet that contains all the essential nutrients to enhance flow of energy throughout your body. Better take vegetarian food and home meals and plan your diet such that you include all the important nutrients required for the body. Excess fats and calories are not good for your health. So better avoid food like pizza, burgers, meat, sweets, ice creams and fried and roasted foods.

Cultivate good eating habits

It�s not true that eating a lot strengthen our health. It doesn�t matter how much you eat but when and what you eat actually matters. You should develop healthy eating habits that concern your good health and body weight. Eat at regular times. Take time to eat; chew the food well and enjoy the taste. Don�t rush through your food as your stomach cannot understand how much amount of food it can accept. Take in five or six small meals than having 3 large meals a day. Doing this will help your body to use the nutrients effectively. Never miss your food; it may affect your stomach badly.

Drink water

Drink a lot of water every day. You should take at least 8 glasses of water each day. It is essential because water removes all the toxins and unwanted substances from your body. It also prevents the fats from getting accumulated inside. Whenever you go out carry a bottle of water with you. You should be able to distinguish between thirst and hunger. You would attempt eating when you need water. So when you feel hungry, have a glass of water and check whether it was a thirst.

Do regular exercise

Exercise can burn the unnecessary fats and calories from your body and strengthen your bones and muscles. It helps in weight loss effectively if practiced regularly and reduce the risk of heart diseases. Every morning, if you go for a walk, it would be a good start of the day that makes you smart and relaxed. You can join at yoga centers or consult fitness professionals for weight loss exercises. Yoga is the suitable method that helps refresh both your mind and body and escape from all the stresses and mental pressures that troubles you.

You are likely to develop disease if you are overweighed. But you don�t need to worry about it. You just follow the weight loss tips and change your looks. Through a healthy diet and regular exercise, you can live healthy and slim.

Study Documents Cure for Diabetes 2

Cure for Diabetes 2?  You Decide.

I was doing research on a Program that says it is a CURE FOR DIABETES 2, and the study below was included in the information from the Program.  Since I have lived with a diagnosis of Type 2 diabetes for over 30 years, use no Oral Medications, No Insulin, just a diet  and 30 minutes of exercise each day I wanted to know more about this study released by British Physicians in June, 2011. 

I searched the American Diabetes Association website, they had a lot of  studies listed, most were related to studies done by Drug Companies regarding their various drugs and their positive results in “treating” diabetes.  But this study was not to be found, even searching for the correct title or just the words “cure for type 2 diabetes.

Above is a link for this study.  It is available in PDF and can be read on the site or downloaded if you desire a copy.  Might consider taking it to your caregiver and see if might be helpful.

I have provided a short summary of the beginning of the study and a summary of the end of the study.   Read and Learn.  Take a copy to your physician…he might have missed it!

Aims/hypothesis

Type 2 diabetes is regarded as inevitably progressive, with irreversible beta cell failure.

The hypothesis was tested that both beta cell failure and insulin resistance can be reversed by dietary restriction of energy intake.

Methods:

Eleven people with type 2 diabetes (49.5 ± 2.5 years, BMI 33.6 ± 1.2 kg/m2, nine male and two female) were studied before and after 1, 4 and 8 weeks of a 2.5 MJ (600 kcal)/day diet.

Basal hepatic glucose output, hepatic and peripheral insulin sensitivity and beta cell function were measured.

Pancreas and liver triacylglycerol content was measured using three-point Dixon magnetic resonance imaging.

An age-, sex- and weight-matched group of eight non-diabetic participants was studied.

Results

After 1 week of restricted energy intake, fasting plasma glucose normalised in the diabetic group (from 9.2 ± 0.4 to 5.9 ± 0.4 mmol/l; p = 0.003).

Insulin suppression of hepatic glucose output improved from 43 ± 4% to 74 ± 5% (p = 0.003 vs baseline; controls 68 ± 5%).

Hepatic triacylglycerol content fell from 12.8 ± 2.4% in the diabetic group to 2.9 ± 0.2% by week 8 (p = 0.003).

The first-phase insulin response increased during the study period (0.19 ± 0.02 to 0.46 ± 0.07 nmol min−1 m−2; p < 0.001) and approached control values (0.62 ± 0.15 nmol min−1 m−2; p = 0.42).

Maximal insulin response became supranormal at 8 weeks (1.37 ± 0.27 vs controls 1.15 ± 0.18 nmol min−1 m−2).

Pancreatic triacylglycerol decreased from 8.0 ± 1.6% to 6.2 ± 1.1% (p = 0.03).
Conclusions/interpretation

Normalisation of both beta cell function and hepatic insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetes was achieved by dietary energy restriction alone.

This was associated with decreased pancreatic and liver triacylglycerol stores.

The abnormalities underlying type 2 diabetes are reversible by reducing dietary energy intake.

For the eight week study – published in the June 24
issue of “Diabetologia”- researchers tracked the insulin
levels of the diabetics as they ate an extreme
600-calorie-a-day diet consisting solely of diet shakes
and non-starchy vegetables. After one week on the diet,
the diabetics’ blood sugar levels were no longer
elevated. After eight weeks on the diet, their bodies’
regained the ability to make insulin, essentially curing
them of diabetes.
