Abit on me, i dropped 6 full dress sizes and 60lbs in 8 months in the early 90’s… High protein, complex & low carbs is the way i did it… I combined a body builder’s diet, Atkin’s, Weight Watcher’s and my own ways in it… No added exercise accept my normal work days… My fat was solid, no cellulite…

~
Fact: Look outside their life to pinpoint the problems…
Fact: 2 weeks of eating right WILL shift your life curve…
BUT, eating right then eating bad for 2 weeks will change that life curve, too…
Fact: The biggest changes are outside of you!
~
5 Things to AVOID in Your Diet

system…
3 ~ hydrogenated oil & partially hydrogenated – leads to heart disease…
4 ~ enriched (flour, etc…) – They took it out and put the bad back in…

~
Diet Tips & Tricks
~
Diet for 2 days then add a few extra carbs every 3rd day! The body never gets used to it…
– Per research studies of late…
~
Water rehydrates you! I suggest keeping it with you all the time…
http://www.naturodoc.com/library/nutrition/water.htm
~ Naturo Doc on water…
~
Workouts:
Eat something like yogurt or drink a protein shake before you do… Otherwise you will lose muscle along with fat per Dr Oz… 5/8/2012 show…
~ www.Mercola.com
~ Sugar or HFCS eaten after a workout will completely shut down your body’s production of your Human Growth Hormone…
~ Dr Oz said do not grab an energy drink after a work out either for the same reason…
~
Isometrics:
A certified personal trainer told me to hold it 6 seconds each rep… 6 is the magic number!
~
Drinks – Clear soda is far better than colored ones… Colored ones have chemicals in it to hurt you… Mountain Dew is the worst! It has Bromade(sp) (Bromine) a poison in it shadowed by heavy amounts of sugar…
– Beer – Budweiser is the only beer loaded with chemicals which answers why most people get headaches drinking it!
(a beer distributor manager told me)
– * A headache is the 1st thing a person will usually experience when the body is rejecting what you are eating, drinking or taking….
~
Waist:
Healthy: Your waist should be half your height…
– To measure, suck your tummy in for a proper measurement per Dr Oz!
– Women, waist should be no more than 35″…
– Men, waist no more than 40″…
~
Do not ever eat a banana 1st thing! Tummy can’t digest it…
~
Biggest Loser says eat small meals, meat, veggies & sides the size of your palm…
~
Start with this list… I say modify…
~
You can always discard the bun and bread to use lettuce…
~
Remember to eat something every 2-3 hours…
Plus do not eat anything 3 hours before bedtime…
~
Always eat carbs with a protein! You never absorb the calories…
~
Drink a 12 oz of soda a day if you like…
Stay away from diet stuff – BAD for you!
Use butter never margarine, etc…
– Margarine clogs arteries!
~
Chew sugarless gum or keep hard candy or nuts or trail mix with you…
– 1/4 cup of almonds or walnuts daily are great!
– Pistachios are good too…
~
Know it takes 2 weeks to wean your body off carbs and cravings…
– Proteins keep your tummy satisfied…
~
Keep a high protein level daily of 30% to keep muscle mass….
~
“Key” Test
Get a blood test done called Serum Insulin Level test!
A blood test, level should be under 11 to lose weight… If 12 and higher you need a strict diet, hard exercise or you may have a hormone imbalance or something else….
~
PCOS Lady, I do say modify it for you…

Margarine vs Butter
~
In a head-to-head battle between butter and its artificial competitor, the original wins by a landslide. Sure, the spreads have the same number of calories, but Margarine has more trans fat, which simultaneously raises your “bad” (LDL) cholesterol and lowers “good” (HDL) cholesterol, according to the Mayo Clinic. “That’s the one ingredient we dietitians recommend to avoid completely,” Moskovitz says. To limit your risk of heart disease, stick with the real stuff. And choose whipped butter, which has a lower caloric density.

Fatigue Diet, Symptoms, Causes

Symptoms, Causes and Diet for Fatigue

Posted: Feb 18, 2011
Fatigue is generally defined as a feeling of lack of energy and motivation that can be physical, mental or both. Fatigue is not the same as drowsiness, but the desire to sleep may accompany fatigue. Apathy is a feeling of indifference that may accompany fatigue or exist independently. In addition, individuals often describe fatigue using a variety of terms including weary, tired, exhausted, malaise, listless, lack of energy and feeling run down.
~
Fatigue is common. About 20% of Americans claim to have fatigue intense enough to interfere with living a normal life. A physical cause has been estimated to be responsible 20% to 60% of the time, while emotional or mental causes comprise the other 40% to 80% of cases of fatigue. Unfortunately, fatigue can also occur in normal individuals that experience intense physical or mental activity (or both).
However, in contrast to fatigue that occurs with some diseases and syndromes, normal fatigue in healthy individuals is quickly relieved in a few hours to about a day when the physical or mental activity is reduced. Also, people occasionally experience fatigue after eating (sometimes termed postprandial depression) which can be a normal response to food, especially after large meals and this may last about 30 minutes to several hours.
~
FYI

http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/tuesday-dr-oz-show
~ Dr Oz … Are You Normal….or Nuts? 6/26/12 … 46% of Chronic Fatigue inflicted people have parasites creating their symptoms… Those parasites can live 25 years in your stomach…
~ Look at my Parasite Symptoms list to check off your symptoms….
~ Only ParasiteTesting.com can ID all living parasites known to man…
~ * US doctors are NOT trained on parasites, bacteria or fungal infections!
~
Fatigue Symptoms
Fatigue, either mental or physical, is a symptom that usually has some underlying cause. Fatigue may be described by people in different ways, and may include some combination of the following (both mental and physical):
~ weakness,
~ lack of energy,
~ constantly tired or exhausted,
~ lack of motivation,
~ difficulty concentrating, and/or
~ difficulty starting and completing tasks
~
Other symptoms such as fainting or loss of consciousness (syncope), near-syncope, rapid heartbeat (palpitations), dizziness or vertigo may also be described as part of the fatigue experienced by the affected individual. The presence of these symptoms may actually help lead a health care practitioner to discover the underlying cause(s) of the fatigue.
~
Fatigue Causes
The potential causes of fatigue are numerous. The majority of diseases known to man often list fatigue or malaise as possible associated symptoms. This is complicated by the fact that fatigue can occur in normal healthy individuals as a normal response to physical and mental exertion. However, normal fatigue may begin to become abnormal if it becomes chronic, extreme or prolonged fatigue; usually this occurs when a person experiences chronic or prolonged physical or mental exertion. For example, unusually hard physical or mental exertion for one day can result in normal fatigue that may last about a day or sometimes more, depending on the exertion level, while daily unusually hard physical or mental exertion may result in prolonged fatigue (usually greater than 24 to 48 hours). This latter situation may develop into abnormal fatigue.
~
How to Cure for Fatigue
There are numerous cures for chronic fatigue syndrome, but is advised that patients must consult their doctor before taking in any medication. Among the most common category of medications to treat chronic fatigue, anti-depressants are the most popular.
That is because anti-depressants surely help patients relax more even with their feeling of restlessness due to the onset of the viral disease.
However, there are also many forms of diet that can effectively help curtail the disease.
~
Diets for chronic fatigue
To start with, a patient can take a water cure diet. This form of diet is the simplest and can be easily executed as long as the patient is disciplined enough and determined.
The water cure diet would see that the patient must take water that is equivalent to half of the body’s weight. For example, the body weighs 150 lbs. The patient must then take ounces of water daily that is equivalent to 75 lbs.
It is also recommended that the patient take in at least a quarter of salt for about every quart of water that he drinks. The salt can also be used in food.
There is no restrictions in food intake, but the water cure diet restricts patients from drinking alcoholic and caffeinated beverages because they are diuretics.
Recommended food to include in diets
No special diets other than water cure is recommended for chronic fatigue patients. However, the patients are advised to avoid food groups that are considered toxic to the body.
These food group includes aspartame (a synthetic form of sugar), refined oils, food additives, chlorinated water, margarine and hydrogenated fats, junk foods, alcoholic and softdrinks and chocolates.
~
Find powerful herbal remedies Enhances Immunity

Instead, experts advise chronic fatigue patients to include the following in their food intake: organic food, sea vegetables, olive oil, lemonade, maple syrup, seaweeds, vegetable juices, unrefined sea salt, and foods that are rich in essential fatty acids.
Knowledge of how the food replenishes the body will greatly help a patient understand more about the usual food and substances that are recommended to help the body cope up and recover from chronic fatigue.
Overall, it is also most recommended that you avoid the disease, because, as they say, an ounce of prevention far outpaces pounds of cure.
Sticking to the normal, healthy lifestyle would surely boost the function of the body’s immune system, making it more resistant to the future onset of the disease.

Fatigue Causes and Symptoms and Home Remedies for Chronic Fatigue syndrome

Fatigue is the most common presenting complaint in doctor’s offices, and can be part of scores of serious medical conditions, as much as from overwork or lack of sleep. Underlying causes need to be identified, and natural medicine recognizes many less obvious contributing factors. These include chronic intestinal dysbiosis, liver overload, adrenal exhaustion, hidden infections (yeast, viral or parasitic) and food allergies. Typical short-term solutions such as caffeine, tobacco, sugar and other

IBS – Could it be parasites?

Posted in IBS, PARASITES, SITES n FORUMS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 6:03 am by PCOSLady

LIVING AWAY FROM THE ANIMAL LICE AND MITES CAN LIVE OFF THE ANIMAL FOR UP TO 40 WEEKS AND SO IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO TREAT AREAS AND BEDDING SEPARATELY TO AVOID RE-INFESTATION… ~ HUMANS CAN GET MITES AND LICE TOO! YOU KNOW YOUR DOG AND CAT CAN… ~ FLIES ARE ONE WAY…


~
Could “IT” be Parasites?
~
“I feel squiggly crawly things on me”
~
It’s real! You could have parasites! You are feeling the damage left at your nerve endings caused by parasites…
~ Doctors tell you “it’s all in your head”…
~ Doctors are WRONG! They have no idea….
~
Testing Labs
~
~ Quest Diagnostics – only checks for 3 types…
~ Lab Corp – only checks for 1 type…
~ Parasite Testing Lab – checks for every parasite known… www.parasitetesting.com
~
* Fact: If you are being treated for a symptom over 3 weeks by a doctor and it does not ease up or go away…. 8 of 10 times YOU have parasites!
~
* FYI: If you travel abroad you should be tested yearly for parasites…
– Get tested yearly in general to be safe…
~
* FACT: Parasite Testing research doctor asked me, when i called, if i had experienced a burning around my heart… A few days later i experienced 4 bouts of hard indigestion… Now i feel a burn like when you get a razor cut and the skin touches, that kinda burn…

IBS: Irritable Bowl Syndrome
This IBS diagnosis is a “catch all” for many doctors because they have no idea what you actually have!
~ Per the Parasite Testing Lab…
~ 8 of 10 cases are in fact parasites!
~
* Fact: Parasite Testing Lab years ago tested 100 Europeans, finding 20% had parasites… 100 US were tested and found 32% had parasites… Point: The US doctors claimed the US is to clean to have parasites!
~
* Fact in Patient Cases:
http://www.womentowomen.com/digestionandgihealth/parasites.aspx
Gastrointestinal distress — could it be intestinal parasites?
~
When I started Women to Women over 25 years ago, I saw patients almost every day who were suffering from digestive problems like bloating, constipation, diarrhea, gas and fatigue.
~
Back then I often referred patients to gastroenterologists. Frequently they came back to me with the diagnosis of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), and with the recommendation that they should make dietary changes, increase fiber in their diet and use Metamucil. But too often these changes brought them no relief. I was aware at that time that stress could play a part in their discomfort, and made suggestions accordingly. But this also did not seem to be very effective. Their symptoms remained mysterious and frustrating.
