Do the Work!

Sure, sometimes it may seem like I'm bullying you in my workouts...yeah, just a bit! But that just means I'm helping you to create major results. And the truth is working out is hard to do — hey, even I have admitted before I don't love it! But the truth is it's the number form of preventive medicine and dramatically affects your hormone balance. I want you sweating, stretching, and pushing yourself. Don't just give up and not do the work that gets you to the results you want.
Here is what one of my online team member says about creating a solution to get up to get her workouts done and NOT hitting the snooze button.
I totally hear you... it is hard hard hard. I fought it really hard too — I didn't want to get up, or I would set my alarm so I could hit snooze. Here was my solution: I bought the loudest alarm I could, a cheap-o $10 one that buzzes really really anoyingly. It's plugged in on the other side of the room. When it goes off, I have to get out of bed, walk across the room to shut it. No snooze, I go right to my bathroom and spalsh water on my face. Workout clothes right there — I look at them and think how happy I will be AFTER the workout. Fight the urge, don't look at the bed. Go into my living room and it's all set — my yoga mat is out, my weights are set out, I've just gotta turn on the DVD for Jillian's video and go.
I feel GREAT the whole rest of the day — a huge change in stress load, it's like I worked it all out of my body!

Try it out and let me know if it works for you! good luck! – BigGoals

Can I Exercise When I'm Sick?

Q: Should you work out when you have a cold? Anything special to keep in mind?
The rule of thumb for exercising while sick is called the above/below-the-neck rule. If your symptoms appear above the neck (runny nose, sneezing, sore throat), then yes, you can continue with a low-intensity workout. Studies have shown that exercising at a moderate-intensity level does not intensify cold symptoms or compromise the immune system. Avoid high-intensity exercise, such as heavy weight lifting and high-intensity aerobic training, which has been shown to have a negative impact on the immune system during a cold or any respiratory infection.
If your symptoms are below the neck (diarrhea, intense coughing, vomiting, fever), then the American College of Sports Medicine and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggest you let your illness run its course before resuming physical activity.


Hormones And Weight Loss

So you know my book, Master Your Metabolism, is all about hormones and how you can balance them. But you might wonder, "What do hormones have to do with anything?" Let me explain.

If I were to ask you what your metabolism is, what would you say? I bet you would answer, "The way my body burns calories." If so, you would be wrong. That's one of the key things your metabolism does. But I'm asking whether you know what it is.

The answer is hormones! Your metabolism is your biochemistry. Some hormones tell you you're hungry; some tell you you're full. When you eat, hormones tell your body what to do with that food — whether to store it or burn it as fuel. And when you exercise, hormones tell your body how to move and consume energy stores, and how to boost or shut down different body parts. Hormones control almost every aspect of how we gain weight — and how we can lose it.

The endocrine system — the group of organs and glands responsible for releasing hormones that regulate key bodily functions — is sometimes compared to an orchestra. Each hormone is like an instrument. Playing together, in tune, they sound amazing. But what happens if, right in the middle of a concert, a violin suddenly goes wildly astray, twanging on its own? And then a clarinet starts shrieking? And then the pianist can't keep up? The music would sound like crap, right?

It's exactly the same with your metabolism. Your body can't work the way it's supposed to if any of your hormones is out of tune. Once one goes, they all follow. That's why you can't just focus on one hormone at a time when you're trying to balance your hormones — you have to work to get them all in tune and playing in the right key again.

never give up! Your journey begins today and continues for the rest of your life. This is not just about weight loss — it’s about discovering the person you want to be and making all your dreams come true. Stay the course and you will see your body and mind change in ways you never knew were possible!

"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take but by the moments that take our breath away."

Good luck to everybody. Selagi tak mati kita kena on healthy diet jugak walaupun dah kurus.

Bak kata kakak Jillian lagi..
"Unless You Puke!! Faint or Die!! Keep Working!!"


Dealing With Weight-Loss Plateaus

Q: How can I bust through a weight-loss plateau? I've been working really hard and have been having success; however, the scale hasn't budged for the past two and a half weeks.

Let me just tell you this, a weight-loss plateau is an integral part of weight loss. DO NOT BE DISCOURAGED! It is your body's way of protecting you for survival purposes. The weight-loss plateau occurs because your body thinks there is a famine and has slowed your metabolism in order to conserve calories. This will happen periodically throughout your weight-loss odyssey.

That said, a plateau will usually break on its own after about three weeks, but here are several ways to help get your metabolism back on track quickly!

Exercise Tips

1. Variety: Often we fall into an exercise routine — meaning that we do the same workout regimen for weeks at a time. Think of it like this: if you do 10 push-ups after not working out for months, you will be sore, but if you do 10 push-ups a day for 10 days in a row, you will no longer be sore. This is because your body adapts to your exercise program, and as it adapts, the workout becomes less challenging — and, unfortunately, less effective.

The solution is variety. You have to mix up your exercise routine in order to consistently shock your system. Here are a few different ways to mix up your workout:

Alternate the weight — one week lift heavy, and the next week lift light.

Change the number of repetitions. This usually goes hand in hand with the amount of weight you are lifting: one week heavy weights, low reps; the next week light weights, high reps.

Change the exercise: One week do a chest press, the next week a chest fly, and the next week push-ups.

2. Intensity: The best way to speed up your metabolism is to boost the intensity of your training. By picking up the intensity, you'll burn more calories, challenge your body, and literally force your metabolism to burn a little brighter because of all the energy your body needs to complete your exercise regimen.

Food Tips

1. Eat more: Ninety percent of the time plateaus are caused by your body's survival mechanism of protecting against famine, which is triggered by calorie reduction. The best way to fix this quickly is to give your body a little more food so it feels secure. Varying your calorie intake is my best advice for keeping your body from plateauing: For the next three days vary your calorie intake between 1,800 and 2,400 calories. I know this may sound crazy, but trust me...I know what I'm doing. Then, after three days, drop back down to the calorie allowance that I have set for you through this program.

2. Reduce your sodium and DRINK LOTS OF WATER: Keep your sodium under 1,500 mg a day at most for as long as you can manage. You can achieve this in part by cutting all processed food out of your diet for two weeks.

I promise you that if you follow these tips to the letter, your plateau will be shattered by the end of week 2!



Understanding Insulin Resistance

People, come on read this. So important. About why u cant take only sugar junks and keep going take it. Macam kak Rahimah ajar. hehe. tapi dia terangkan dengan lebih mudah. ni Jillian's article.

We heard a lot about insulin in the days of low-carb diets. And for good reason. Problems with insulin are a root cause of some of the most dangerous health conditions, as insulin affects almost every cell in the body.

Insulin plays a critical role in how your body uses food. Its most important role is to lower the concentration of glucose in your blood. When you eat, your digestive system breaks food down into glucose, and the glucose recirculates in your blood stream. In response to the rise in glucose after a meal, the pancreas releases surges of insulin, whose job is to clean the glucose from the blood. Some of the glucose is diverted into the liver, where it's converted into stored glucose, called glycogen, for later use by the muscles. Insulin then helps turn any leftover glucose into fatty acids and stores them in fat cells where they can be tapped later for fuel.

By making poor food choices, like scarfing down too many highly processed, refined carbs (like white bread and pasta!), we can do things to cause our bodies to create too much insulin. When you repeat that cycle too many times (like by repeatedly eating sugary junk on an empty stomach) your pancreas will overcompensate and produce more insulin, which your cells will eventually start to ignore. This is called insulin resistance and it is the precursor to type 2 diabetes and it is common in overweight people. Turned away at the door, the sugar is left with no where to go. If it hangs around in your blood too long, doctors call this impaired fasting glucose (if measured in the morning) or impaired glucose tolerance (if measured two hours after a meal). You could develop full-blown diabetes if both conditions go unchecked.

While high levels of blood glucose trigger insulin release, low levels suppress it, Maintaining low levels of insulin — one of the primary goals of the diet — allows your body to more easily tap in to your stored fat for fuel. Conversely, being insulin-resistant can hamper your weight-loss efforts. Try to avoid spikes in your blood sugar, by eating regularly. Pair carbs with protein, eat whole foods, avoid sugar juices and fruits, and highly-processed carbs. When your insulin-release mechanism works the right way, it helps keep your weight in check. So strive to keep it balanced!


Drop the Fear of Looking Stupid

Okay, I know I don't need to tell you that exercise is absolutely crucial to getting and staying healthy. Still, I can't tell you how many people tell me that they aren't working out because they are afraid they'll look stupid, they fear trying something new, or, well, any other number of things you can think of. These are fears you NEED to get over. Your attitude creates your reality, so it's crucial to have the right one. The power is in your mind, so if you have negative thoughts about your self-image, if you lack confidence, or if you feel hopeless that you'll ever lose weight, you're still at square one. If you constantly tell yourself you're not capable of working out, then you're always going to feel stupid…and eventually you'll give up. But if you harness your mental power with positive thoughts that you CAN do this, and WILL do this, guess what — you will.

If working out is new to you, empower yourself with knowledge — use the site to learn the proper exercise techniques and form. If you've set your mind to do it, get the skills and you'll feel more comfortable. Start off by trying the workouts from my site or DVDs at home. Doing it home first is the most basic way of getting the moves down before you try them in a public setting. Afraid of looking dumb in front of your family? Hello — they're your family! Let's be honest — they've probably seen you look a lot sillier.

Now, if you're terrified of going to the gym, do it anyway. I understand that a gym can be a bit overwhelming the first time you go. But trust me, everyone has a first time stepping through those doors. Everybody has felt weird about lifting the weights in front of the muscle men, moving on the elliptical for the first time, or even signing up for a class. If you're worried about what you like to other people there, forget it. People are so concentrated what they're doing, in all likelihood they're not paying ANY attention to you. If you're still worried about it, go at a time when the machines are less crowded or meet for a session with a trainer (many gyms offer free introductory training sessions). The important thing is to know that feeling of intimidation will fade. Never be a quitter.

As you keep working out and becoming stronger, you will become aware of your strength — not just in the gym, but in other aspects of your life. Trust me, this will be a major boost to your confidence level and it will change your frame your mind for the better. It's all baby steps, but they make a big difference over time. Keep working out, stop feeling stupid, and start feeling great!


Are You Getting Too Much Sleep?

Sorry naz dah lama tak update. malas.. ;D
ni ada article from Jillian's. mane lagi kan..

Are you one of those people who likes to brag that you get by on very little sleep? Or do you love to sleep the day away? I've told you before that too little sleep can mess up your weigh-loss efforts, but did you also know that when you sleep too much, your metabolism can also be negatively affected too?

If you sleep 10 hours a night, you might face some of the same hormonal risks as those who sleep too little. A recent Canadian study found that people who sleep fewer than seven hours or more than nine hours weigh an average of four more pounds (and had wider waists) than people who sleep eight hours every night. Researchers believe that having too much or too little sleep interferes with your ability to control your appetite, because it simultaneously increases hunger hormone ghrelin while it decreases satisfaction hormone leptin.
Want to be sure you are getting all the benefits of a good night sleep? Get your rest! Shoot for a consistent eight hours of sleep and stick with the same bed time and wake-up time each day — even on the weekends!

Khasiat Limau Nipis

Khasiat Limau Nipis
Rasa masam pada limau nipis dan semua jenis limau lainnya, berperanan pembuang toksin terbesar dibandingkan buah-buah lain. Rasa masam dan unsur pectin yang terkandung di dalamnya membantu menghilangkan racun-racun dalam tubuh. Jika ingin melakukan pembuangan toksin, anda boleh minum segelas besar air yang ditambah dengan perahan limau nipis setiap pagi kemudian diikuti dengan segelas besar air putih setiap jam berikutnya. Jika tidak tahan dengan rasa masamnya, limau nipis boleh digantikan dengan limau biasa.
Kadang-kadang proses pembuangan toksin diikuti dengan keluarnya gejala seperti kulit kering atau SAKIT KEPALA. Gejala ini berjalan seiring dengan keluarnya racun dari tubuh dan keadaan ini adalah wajar. Namun jika tidak yakin, anda mesti mendapatkan nasihat doktor. Selain itu, disarankan agar tidak memakan limau nipis untuk membuang toksin ketika tubuh tidak sihat kerana keadaan ini boleh memburukkan lagi kesihatan anda.
Tingkat daya tahan tubuh . Menurut buku Food That Harm Food That Heal, meminum air limau ini sebiji sehari, akan meningkatkan daya tahan tubuh dari serangan virus. Vitamin C yang tinggi dari buah ini akan menyediakan antioksidan untuk menjinakkan radikal bebas dalam tubuh. Sementara sejumlah mineral, potasium di alamnya bermanfaat untuk membantu mengatur tekanan darah dan fungsi jantung, serta vital untuk memelihara kelenturan otot dan memperlancar sistem saraf.
Selagi tidak disebabkan oleh jangkitan di tekak atau jangkitan paru yang parah, limau nipis berkesan untuk menghilangkan batuk. Ini kerana beberapa kandungan mineral yang penting pada limau nipis seperti kalsium, pospor, potasium dan besi. Seperti diketahui, besi adalah suatu antioksidan.
Potasium menyeimbangkan tekanan darah menguatkan fungsi jantung. Ada pun pospor memperbaiki metabolisme tubuh. Kombinasi vitamin C dan beberapa mineral tersebut sudah tentu berkesan untuk mengatasi gangguan ringan pada tubuh, seperti masuk angin, yang menyebabkan batuk. Secara tradisional, penggunaan limau nipis sebagai ubat batuk adalah cukup dengan membelah sebiji limau nipis dan dituangkan dengan sedikit kicap di atas hirisan limau tersebut, lalu diperah ke dalam mulut. Penggunaan kicap itu sendiri tidak jelas tujuannya.
Mungkin kicap digunakan untuk mengseimbangkan rasa masam yang sangat kuat dari limau nipis. Kicap dipilih kerana rasa manis yang ditimbulkan juga tidak setajam rasa manis pada gula yang boleh merangsang munculnya batuk. Kombinasi semacam ini umum dijumpai pada ubat-ubat dijual di kedai-kedai ubat Cina.

5 Foods A Woman Should NEVER Eat

The foods you should never eat are deserving of their own list too, doncha think? But I’ve done one better on this particular list. While I’ve named the culprit in disturbing your peace (health and weight), I’ve also named the hero in restoring your well-being (begin applause now).

Let’s get right to business then and get rolling with this list. If you stick with me, you’ll know how to dodge these negative nutritional bullets and make better choices at the grocery store and when dining out.

Culprit #1: Deep-Fried Anything
Sorry, but if you order deep fried, make deep fried or even use the words deep fried, you might as well look for a cardiologist at the same time. Deep frying is positively the worst possible choice for having anything prepared. And don’t let the words, “lightly fried” fool you either, as in tempura! It’s all wickedness!

Hero #1: Sauteed for Flavor
This cooking technique uses minimal oil (preferably olive oil) and gives your food the flavor and complexity you’re looking for. I sauté my green beans after steaming them in olive oil (not virgin, that’s too fine an oil for heat), a lot of fresh garlic, a little sea salt and a liberal grinding of fresh pepper. Unbelievable taste with very little fat and no bad fat, either.

Culprit #2: White Bread
Thud. Did you hear that? That’s the sound of white bread landing in your gullet. It’s squishy, gooey and gluey and it’s adhering to the sides of your intestines, do you feel it? Blech. Considering the negative nutrition associated with denatured flour, why would anyone make that choice in this enlightened century? Lose the white bread already!

Hero #2: Sprouted Wheat Bread
Okay, check this out. When you sprout grain, then make it into bread, not only is a lot easier on your digestion, it’s packed full of nutrients traditional bread doesn’t have! Consider this nugget: your body looks at sprouted grain as veggies, not starch! That’s good news if your thighs sprout inches just by eating a sandwich with two pieces of bread!

Culprit #3: Shortening and/or Margarine
Solidified fats get that way through a process called hydrogenation, which in turn, makes a multitude of sins called trans fats. Yes, we’ve all heard how bad trans fats are, right? Well, not only does margarine lower your HDL (good cholesterol) it also raises the bad (LDL). Ixnay all the way on margarine (and it’s evil twin shortening…which is essentially unflavored margarine).

Hero #3: Butter
Hallelujah and pass the butter already! Butter, though a definite saturated fat, will raise your good cholesterol unlike margarine. Just use it very moderately. Try Better Butter: half unsalted butter and half extra virgin olive oil whipped together and kept in the fridge in a covered dish. Just like soft spread margarine only 300 times better!

Culprit #4: White Rice
Oh. My. Gosh. Are you really still eating white rice? This depiction of a grain is full of nothingness. The fiber is missing, the B vitamins are virtually unheard of and the glycemic load will take you one step closer to Type 2 Diabetes, if that’s your go-to carb! Dismiss this!

Hero #4: Brown Rice
With three times the amount of fiber, more B vitamins as well as other nutrients, the carb load on brown rice is much easier on your body and a smaller amount will satiate, too. What’s not to love about that, especially if you’re trying to lose a few pounds?

Culprit #5: White Sugar
To quote Gomer Pyle, “Surprise, surprise, surprise.” I bet you knew sugar would be on the list, didn’t you? How can it not. Did you know that consuming white sugar will actually stun your white blood cells from doing their important health preserving work? Yes, sugar impacts your immune system! It doesn’t just eat your teeth and add to your belly fat, it disrupts immune function. Repent from your sugar eating ways and return to the healthy fold!

Hero #5: Dark Chocolate and Fruit
You thought I was going to list alternative or artificial sweeteners, didn’t you? Studies have shown that people who consume diet drinks tend to gain weight doing so. Why is this? The hypothesis is you can’t fool your body like you think — if it tastes sweet, your body may still react to it and gain weight.

Stinks, doesn’t it? But we need to LOSE our sweet teeth, people! That’s the problem, not finding the golden panacea that tastes just like sugar. If you want something sweet, have some fruit and an ounce of very dark chocolate (FULL of phytonutrients, yay!) Once you get over your addiction to sugar, this decadent treat (a bowl of fresh raspberries with melted dark chocolate drizzled over the top) will knock you flat. You’ll happily say NO to donuts!That’s it for now, y’all!

Stay tuned… there is always more to come!



Kenapa sedu??

Semasa bulan-bulan pertama selepas kelahirannya, adalah biasa jika melihat si kecil anda kerap tersedu.

Ketahui kenapa bayi kerap tersedu, bila anda perlu ke doktor dan kongsi petua untuk menghilangkannya...

Semasa bulan-bulan pertama umur bayi, adalah biasa jika melihat si kecil kerap tersedu. Ia berlaku biasanya selepas bayi menyusu atau makan dan ketika dia berasa sangat teruja. Ada juga pendapat yang mengatakan ia ada kena-mengena dengan perubahan cuaca.

Biasanya ia berlaku beberapa minit sahaja, dan kadang-kadang mungkin juga sehingga beberapa jam. Gejala ini akan berkurangan seiring dengan pertambahan usia bayi.

Bayi Tersedu Daripada Dalam Rahim Lagi

Sedu boleh berlaku bermula minggu keenam selepas konsepsi, sekalipun pergerakan pernafasan belum muncul ketika itu. Ini boleh dilihat melalui imbasan ultrasound. Teorinya, pengecutan menyediakan otot-otot respiratori bayi belum lahir untuk bernafas selepas dilahirkan.

Pengkaji yang diketuai oleh Christian Straus dari sebuah Hospital di Paris mengesyaki tabiat tersedu membantu mamalia belajar menyusu kerana siri pergerakan semasa menetek mirip tersedu dengan glotis tertutup rapat bagi mengelakkan susu memasuki paru-paru.


Video menunjukkan ultrasound bayi tersedu di dalam kandungan.

Kenapa Manusia Tersedu

Apabila kita menarik nafas, diafram (otot yang membantu kita bernafas) tertarik ke bawah untuk membantu udara masuk ke paru-paru. Tetapi ada ketikanya, proses ini terganggu. Apabila ini berlaku, diafram membuat pergerakan menarik ke bawah dalam keadaan tersentap. Oleh itu, udara berebut-rebut masuk dan melanggar kotak suara anda. Maka terhasillah bunyi hik, hik.

Adakah Bayi Akan Rasa Terganggu?

Walaupun ibubapa akan rasa risau, namun sebenarnya ia tidak begitu mengganggu atau menyakitkan bayi. Ibu boleh terus memberikan bayi susu atau makan serta bermain seperti biasa. Ia tidak akan membuatkan bayi tercekik.

Bila Perlu ke Doktor

Jika sedu ini berlarutan terlalu lama, berlaku dengan sangat kerap dan tetap kerap terjadi selepas umur bayi setahun, sila beritahu doktor anda.“Bayi dengan penyakit refluks gastroesofagal mungkin tersedu lebih kerap. Jika sedu bayi terlalu kerap berlaku, beritahu doktor, lebih-lebih lagi jika bayi muntah dengan banyak atau batuk dan sangat meragam.” kata Lynette Manzur, Professor Pediatrik dalam Babycenter.com.

Jika Bayi Tersedu, Apa Nak Buat?

Anda boleh membiarkan sahaja bayi tersedu. Ia akan mengambil sedikit masa untuk menghilangkannya secar sendiri. Tapi anda boleh mengelakkannya dengan mengurangkan kuantiti angin yang masuk ke perut bayi. Saiz puting yang tidak sesuai boleh menyebabkan bayi menghisap udara. Ini mungkin menyebabkan bayi tersedu. Bagaimana nak tahu saiz puting adalah sesuai? ‘Bila anda menonggengkan botol susu bayi, anda sepatutnya dapat lihat titisan susu bukan aliran susu tanpa henti ke bawah’

Sendawakan bayi dengan menyandarkannya ke bahu. Bagi bayi yang lebih besar, biarkan dia duduk. Tepuk belakang bayi perlahan-lahan.

Terus menyusukan bayi walaupun bayi tersedu. Biasanya sedu bayi tidak mengganggu penyusuannya, malah mungkin ini akan membuatkan sedunya hilang. Tetapi jangan terlebih menyusukan juga kerana mungkin terlebih menyusu menjadi penyebab sedu bayi. Jika anda risau terlebih memberi susu, cuba beri susu bila bayi mahu (on-demand) bukannya mengikut jadual.

Quit Yo-Yo Dieting and Get Real Results!


How many times have you started a diet in your life? Probably a lot more than just once. If you want to lose weight, you have to do it the right way. I'll tell you right now: Skipping meals or following an extremely low-calorie diet is not in any way, shape, or form the answer for losing any amount of weight. Extreme calorie deprivation only sets you up for yo-yo dieting, or "weight cycling." Your weight will continue to go up and down for the rest of your life. If you want permanent weight loss, then listen to me.

The lack of understanding about the right way to lose weight can set people up for big-time failure. Even if you do have initial success on one of these extreme diets, the toll it takes on your body is not at all worth it. Extreme diets that promise big weight loss in a short amount of time cut out macronutrients like carbs and fats — which is horrible for your hormone balance and your metabolism.

Why are you in this pattern of fasting, then slipping up and bingeing, then fasting again? Maybe you desperately want to lose weight for a special occasion and figure that only a couple of weeks at 800 calories a day can give you results you want. And maybe it does…but then what happens when you go back to a normal eating pattern? Simply put, you're toast. While you weren't taking in enough calories, your levels of T3, the thyroid hormone that boosts your metabolism, plummeted and you slowed down your metabolism. Also, your response to insulin has taken a hit, so instead of glucose entering your cells, where it can be used for energy, your body lets it roam around in your blood, where it can cause trouble. Your sensitivity to leptin (which regulates appetite) is also reduced, so you're never quite sure when to say, "Enough!" at the table. Plus, the hormone that tells your brain you're starving, called ghrelin, shoots higher than ever. That is just the beginning of your problems. When you inevitably start gaining back weight, you start the cycle of yo-yo dieting all over again. It gets more and more frustrating every time you do it.

It's time to end this vicious cycle, and the way to do that is not to "diet" but rather to make a lifestyle change. Shift your thinking from merely "cutting back" to simply eating proper portions of the right foods. Whole, nutritious foods will repair, nourish, and support every cell so that your body will work for you and not against you. Be good to your body and it will be good to you!

According to Jillian Michaels - To naturally get rid of excess water weight quickly

= Limit your salt or sodium intake to only 1500mg a day so you won't retain any fluid (water weight) and for an extra weight loss boost...

= Lower your salt intake to 500mg for only a few days (usually no longer than 2 days) to shed those water pounds quickly and...

= The main high sodium foods to avoid are: canned, frozen, processed, & packaged foods and...

= Drink 2 liters of distilled water each day to flush out the excess water weight you're carrying around now - Distilled water is basically PURE water with no salt or minerals in it.

Jillian Michaels diet tips for losing your last ten pounds in less than 30 days...

Don't skip meals (especially breakfast) and eat every 4 hours.

Eating 4 times a day maximizes your energy and stabilizes your blood sugar so you'll never get hungry and so your metabolism will be much higher making you burn more fat faster.

Remember: losing your last 10 pounds is harder than losing your first 100 (go here to see why) so you have to eat foods that'll optimize your metabolism like high fiber foods, low fat foods, and lean proteins.

Pump Up Your Metabolism

Q: I've tried every diet under the sun in my life, and I'm really afraid I've ruined my metabolism. I seem to gain weight no matter what I eat now! Is there any way to fix this?

This is such a good question — I'm so glad you asked! Many people suffer from the backlash that can result from years of yo-yo diets. What happens is this: When people let their calorie levels drop too low, their body's survival mechanism kicks in, lowering their metabolic set point (or basal metabolic rate). When they go off that crash diet and begin to eat normally again, they gain back any weight lost — plus. And what follows that? Yup, another crash diet.

The cycle is often very frustrating, but it CAN be reversed with time, consistency, and patience. What you'll need to do is the exact opposite of what we call shocking the metabolism; you have to allow your body time to adapt to a new metabolic set point — by being consistent, you'll force your body to adapt.

Now, here's the other part of the equation: The absolute best way to pump up your metabolism is to EXERCISE. You'll be burning calories not only during your workout but also up to 48 hours after — all the while increasing lean muscle tissue, which speeds the metabolism over the long term. Aim for five hours of exercise a week if possible, but no fewer than three hours a week.

Get Back Into Your Skinny Clothes!

Are you holding on to clothes that haven't fit in months or even years? Well, you might want to hold on to them just a little bit longer. Use them as motivation! And don't let anyone sabotage your efforts with their negativity. This is YOUR descision to get healthy. Here's what one teammate says about being inspired to fit back into her skinny jeans and ignoring her mother-in-law's efforts to keep her from adopting new habits.

My mother in-law lives with us and she came out today and saw me watching a TV program while doing a low-impact aerobic workout at the same time. She stood there and looked at me with this strange look on her face and said: "What are you doing?" I told her I was getting a workout in where I could. She just tsk-tsked at me and walked away....

She is over 250 pounds and it's killing her that I'm trying to lose weight. "You're ONLY a size 10. Why do you need to lose weight?" I lost 4 pounds this week, plus an inch off my waistline and I'm thrilled. I want to get back into my skinny jeans. I want to be able to walk up a flight of stairs and not have my thighs burning in pain. I want to be able to ride my bike down to the corner store and not feel like I'm gonna die. Do I miss my chips etc. Of course I do. And when I'm at my goal weight I might treat myself a little bit here and there, but she'll never get it. Don't let anyone sabotage all the good you're doing!!! Stay strong!! – floridawoman

Okay, now it's your turn. Do you have a favorite article of clothing lurking in your closet that might be a little too snug? Make it your goal to get back into that article of clothing! Getting to these small victories will keep you motivated and encourage you to work even harder. Despite what anyone else may say to bring you down, it's up to you to finally meet your weight-loss goals!

Do You Know Your Active Metabolic Rate?

The number of calories you burn in a day is known as your active metabolic rate (AMR). Rates vary from person to person, so it is cruical that you take the time to figure yours out — if you don't, you run the risk of consuming too many calories or even consuming too few.

A part of determining how many calories you burn in a day, you need to know is your physical activity level. Determine which one of these descriptions best fits your day-to-day routine, then give yourself the appropriate score.

a. Sedentary Physical Activity Level
Do you have a desk job or do some other kind of work that keeps you in your chair for most of the day? If the answer is yes, your score is 1.1.

b. Light Physical Activity Level
Are you on your feet and walking around for at least half the day? Stay-at-home moms, salespeople, and doctors fall into this category. If this is you, your score is 1.2.

c. Moderate Physical Activity Level
If you're on the move pretty much all day, with a few limited periods of being sedentary, this is the level for you. People in this category include gardeners, carpenters, and mail carriers. If you're in this category, your score is 1.3.

d. High Physical Activity Level
Does your job require being constantly on the move, and does it entail significant amounts of manual labor? Construction workers, farm workers, and movers are among those who land in this category. If you're in this group, your score is 1.4.

If you are a member of my online team and want the Web site to do the math for you, visit my Calorie Calculator.

Oherwise, another element you need to calculate your AMR is the number of calories you burn from exercise on an average day. The number of calories you burn during any exercise session depends on a few things, primarily your body weight.

Use this chart to help you determine the number of calories you burn from exercise on an average day according to your weight, the type of exercise you do, and its duration. You can also use a heart rate monitor to get an accurate number. Write the number down.

Now comes the math. If you don't know your BMR, it's influenced by a number of factors, including age, weight, height, gender, environmental temperature, and diet and exercise habits. Because of these varying factors, it's hard to pin down your BMR to the precise calorie, but we can get pretty close. Here are some formulas for figuring out your BMR. Get out your calculator and plug your numbers into whichever formula applies to you.

MALE: 66 + (6.3 × body weight in pounds) + (12.9 × height in inches) − (6.8 × age in years)

FEMALE: 655 + (4.3 × weight in pounds) + (4.7 × height in inches) − (4.7 × age in years)

Now you have all three numbers: your BMR, daily activity score, and exercise expenditure. Simply multiply your BMR by your daily activity score, and then add your exercise expenditure. Whatever you get from this final calculation is your magic number.

Pomegranate May Fight Some Breast Cancers

TUESDAY, Jan. 5 (HealthDay News) -- Laboratory tests suggest pomegranates contain chemicals that reduce the risk that women will develop hormone-dependent breast cancers, researchers report.
The key seems to be a phytochemical, ellagic acid, found in pomegranates. It inhibits aromatase, an enzyme linked to the development of estrogen-responsive breast cancer.

"We were surprised by our findings," principal investigator Shiuan Chen, co-leader of the Breast Cancer Research Program at City of Hope in Duarte, Calif., said in a news release. "We previously found other fruits, such as grapes, to be capable of the inhibition of aromatase. But, phytochemicals in pomegranates and in grapes are different."
More studies are needed, Gary Stoner, a professor in the department of internal medicine at Ohio State University, said in the same news release. "It's not clear that these levels could be achieved in animals or in humans" because the chemicals may not be easily absorbed from food.
Still, he said, people "might consider consuming more pomegranates to protect against cancer development in the breast and perhaps in other tissues and organs."
The study is published in the January issue of Cancer Prevention Research.

How Tammy Lost 142 Pounds!

From LOSING IT! With Jillian Michaels

Monday, January 11, 2010

Today I'm sharing the story of one my rock stars, Tammy! Just the other day she told me that she celebrated the two-year anniversary of the start of her health journey. She set her mind to losing weight back then and I've been so proud of her and impressed by her amazing results ever since. In fact, I even selected her as one of my Challenge winners two years ago. Now, she's now down 142 pounds from her starting weight! But she had to start somewhere — just like you.

Just over two years ago, Tammy was going through a rough patch. Her husband asked for a divorce and she questioned whether she was really happy. She made a list of what she really wanted her life to look like. She wrote down everything that came to mind; nothing was too big or too little. It included everything from "Go back to college and finish my nursing degree," to "Dare to have my beautician cut my hair with a razor instead of scissors." She carried that list around with her all of December and at the end of the month, she looked at all the things she'd written down and reevaluated her life. She decided to start with two items: a large change and a small one. On January 5, she had her hair cut with a razor and she began her weight-loss journey. This is where the story gets really good!

Once I'd joined JillianMichaels.com and spent a few minutes browsing the site, I felt as though a weight had been lifted from my shoulders. I had tried to lose weight on my own countless times throughout my life, but I'd always failed. Jillian's approach made sense. Weight loss is a simple math equation: calories in, calories out. You had to burn more calories than you ate. Simple. Not easy, but simple.

When I first began my journey, I followed Jillian's online program pretty strictly. I worked out five days a week with, two rest days, used her circuit training from the site, and followed her suggested calorie limit; I also kept a diary of my food intake each day. In addition, I used Jillian's DVDs. In the beginning, I was ashamed of my size and very self-conscious about being in a gym with other people. I joined a 24-hour gym and would workout between midnight and 2 a.m. to increase my chances of being alone in the gym. After following this routine for four months, I decided to change to a gym that offered classes. I soon discovered that not only did I not care what other people thought (or whether they might be watching me), I actually enjoyed working out with people around. Their presence helps push me further in my workouts and keeps me moving when I'd rather stop.

Then in April 2009, it was announced that I was the winner of Jillian's New Year Challenge, and I learned that Jillian would be coming to my home to spend the day with me and give me a one-on-one training session. My upcoming day with Jillian kept me motivated and on the right path. Having had the opportunity of a lifetime to spend the day with the person I respect and admire most in this world continues to be what drives me to reach my goal. Having said that, I realize that not everyone has the same situations or opportunities I was blessed with, but find whatever it is that encourages you — something you can strive toward or look forward to. Focus your sights on that goal and keep moving forward. I recently ran my first 5K race with seven dear friends who have come to feel more like family to me. But it's the little, everyday things that most people take for granted that have made such a difference to me. I can climb stairs and not lose my breath. At home, I can lean over the bathtub to bathe a baby, cut the lawn without stopping, tie my shoes with ease, and scratch the center of my back. When I go shopping, I can find something that fits me in any store. On an airplane, I can easily buckle the seat belt and have to tighten it. Also, for the first time in my life, I can cross my legs at the knees, not only at the ankles.

Day 68 & Wrongly Traced Price at Cold Storage

Wednesday (6 Jan 2010)

Breakfast: 1 excelerade & 3 keping dark choc oat krunch. (8.00 a.m)
Snack: buah langsat bos bagi, dia cakap ada orang bagi dia. rajin2 la bagi wahai orang itu, nanti bos akan panjangkan sedekah anda. ahaks. ada la dalam 10-15 bijik.

Lunch: Rojak pasembor sepinggan. (1.00 p.m) cempedak goreng kurus 1.

petang pun tak makan pape.
Dinner: Zinger Tower!! tak beli set. Menambah calorie ia yang dah +- 640 cal tu. jalan 5jam pun belum tentu burned out. tapi sebab nakk sangat! hari2 makan biskut je time dinner, kalau dah kurus keding puas hati jugak! ni tak! ee geram! haha.

Exc: jalan 45 minit dalam alamanda.

Nak cerita, semalam singgah Cold Storage nak beli digital weight scale yang tengah sale tu, tapi kat CS alamanda tak sale, so tak beli, pulak tu takde fat & water percentage. Beli la benda2 lain. Lepas bayar tu cek resit, tergerak hati tau nak tengok sebab masa cashier scan barang tak tengok harga2. Cek tengok kellog's bar lebih kurang seperti di bawah ni, patutnye harga RM9.99, tapi dia scan RM23.99!! Perghh. Masa tu kat depan pintu CS lagi, masuk balik gi kat rak, cek betul la harga dia 9.99. I always go to the cheapest one, takkan tersalah amik yang mahal kot. :D

Gi kat cashier sorang lagi suruh dia cek, dia datang balik cakap betul harga 9.99. Isi satu borang ni and dia refund balik RM14. Seriously! RM14 tu boleh makan 4 hari tau dalam keadaan diet ni. Silap2 lebih lagi.

So beware jela kalau gi beli barang kat diorang ni, kat mana2 pun la sebenarnya. cek balik price tu. Sebab sebelum ni penah baca pasal kat CS salah scan harga. Be extra careful la. 2-3ringgit pun duit jugak, bukan senang2 dapat jatuh dari langit macam hujan.

Always Hungry? Maybe This Hormone Is Out of Whack

I've worked with many people who have told me that no matter how much they eat, they're still hungry. They can scarf down half a pizza plus dessert and still feel ravenous afterward. Does this sound familiar? If so, it's possible that a condition called leptin resistance is at least partly to blame.

To understand leptin resistance, you first have to understand the role the hormone leptin plays in your metabolism. When you've eaten a meal, the fat cells throughout your body release leptin, which travels to the hypothalamus, the part of your brain that helps regulate appetite. There, it switches off neuropeptide Y — a protein that tells your brain you're hungry — and switches on appetite-suppressing signals. In other words, it gives your brain the message to stop being hungry and start burning calories.

You'd think, then, that low levels of leptin would be the cause of an unstoppable appetite, but that's not necessarily the case. Some research indicates that many people who are overweight actually have very high levels of leptin. How could this be? Well, the more fat you have, the more leptin you produce. And when the body continually cranks out excess levels of leptin in response to overeating, the receptors for leptin in the hypothalamus can start to get worn out and no longer recognize it. People with leptin resistance have high circulating levels of leptin, but the receptors are "deaf" to it, so it can't shut off appetite or stimulate your metabolism.

This vicious circle is similar to what happens when a person develops resistance to insulin, the hormone that allows your cells to use the glucose in your blood. (Insulin resistance can cause high blood glucose levels and eventually lead to diabetes.) In fact, the two conditions often go hand in hand, and research suggests that leptin resistance may be reversed in the same way that insulin resistance can be reversed — by exercising, eating right, and losing weight.

Buah Plum – Anti Cacing dan Anti Bakteria

Buah plum yang dimakan segar mempunyai rasa manis, masam dan segar. Setelah mengalami pemprosesan, warna buah ini akan bertukar menjadi hitam. Bagi orang Cina, buah plum hitam membantu menyedapkan masakan khususnya sip. Buah plum hitam mengandungi asid sitrik, beta sitosterol dan triterpene.

5 Tips to Break Sugar Addiction

If you’re an American, there’s a good chance that you need to break a sugar addiction. From the time we’re children, processed sugar is constantly marketed to us. From Honey Comb to Hershey bars to a litany of carbonated beverages (the highest-grossing "food" sold in America), we spend our lives sucking saccharides in over-abundance.

Now, millions of us suffer from a variety of problems related to eating too much sugar, including obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.

So, how do you break sugar addiction? Here are five tips to get you started.

1. Quit eating high-fructose corn syrup. Start checking nutrition labels and you’ll notice that a huge swath of what we eat has high-fructose corn syrup in it, especially sweets and junk foods. But you might think you have a healthy diet and still have a sugar addiction because you regularly eat yogurt, ketchup, granola and meal-replacement bars, and salad dressings – many of which contain high-fructose corn syrup. Despite piles of data explaining how dangerous this stuff is, profiteering food manufacturers continue to defend their use of it.

2. Eat natural sugars. Quit dumping white sugar into your recipes, coffee, tea, and cereal. If you must sweeten something, use honey or turbinado sugar (sold as Sugar in the Raw). Avoid brown sugar, as it’s often just white sugar with molasses added. While your food might, at first, seem bland, after a few weeks you’ll notice that lots of things are much sweeter than you knew, including grains, fruits, and milk. After a few months, you won’t miss refined sugar at all, and you’ll be able to tell that soda pop is nasty, syrupy goop.

3. Quit eating artificial sweeteners. At UC San Diego, researchers found that Splenda fires up the same neural pathways as sugar. Psychiatrist Guido Frank then told The Scientific American, "Splenda has less of a feedback mechanism to stop the craving to get satisfied." Which, to Frank, means it keeps you craving sugar. Again, if you really need to sweeten something, use natural sugars, and sparingly.

4. Eat plenty of fiber. Soluble fiber helps stabilize blood sugar – preventing sugar crashes and the cravings that inevitably follow. Soluble fiber can be found in fiber-rich foods like oatmeal, beans, fruits, and vegetables. I’ve found that beating sugar crashes is its own health benefit, as you escape the hunger, depression, and lack of energy that come with them. It also breaks the sugar addict’s cycle of refueling every couple hours with more sugar. Not to mention, fiber helps you feel full.

5. Wait out the cravings. Assuming you’re eating healthy foods in healthy amounts on a regular basis throughout the day, you should be able to out-wait sugar cravings as they arise. Like any food cravings, sugar cravings pass pretty quickly. If you’re starving yourself to lose weight, rather than eating properly, it’ll be much harder not to cave to sugar cravings. Here are some healthier desserts to satisfy your sweet tooth.
