Quick Tips: Weight Loss (# 11)

TIP# 11

Chew Your Food Completely!

Ever hear that from your parents when you were growing up? Bet you hated it. I mean, why take your time eating when your favorite cartoon is coming on in 5 minutes? 

Right? WRONG!!

Turns out that many health and nutrition experts agree with your parents...

Your body generally lets you know that it has had enough food in about 20-30 minutes. When was the last time you took 20-30 minutes to eat ANY meal? 

Size matters not...TAKE YOUR TIME!!

No need to answer that...

When you chew your food thoroughly, you reduce your caloric intake by as much as 100 calories per meal. Think about that for a moment, if you eat just three meals per day slower eating can chop off as much as 300 calories per day! 

If you happen to consume more frequent smaller meals (which also helps to accelerate you metabolism), the impact can be even greater. Digestion problems could also be minimized by changing your eating speed as well.

So remember, eat at a slower rate if you want to lose weight!!

You can easily lower your bad cholesterol levels without drugs by following simple steps that will not only change your cholesterol levels, but also improve your health today and for the long haul.

We often use prescription drugs in hopes that they will miraculously cure our ailments. Cholesterol-lowering drugs do tend to work, but there are short and long term side effects to consider such as: drug dependency, tangential organ damage, and possible fatal consequences.

Even more dangerous than the side effects of prescription drugs to lower cholesterol is not getting cholesterol under control.

Eventually, high cholesterol can lead to severe damage to the heart and arteries, not the least of which are atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), stroke or cardiac arrest. 

I have listed 5 simple ways you can realistically lower your cholesterol without prescription medication.

Zero Cost Weight Loss

"If it's for free, its for me."                                  --A good friend of mine
Low cost is great, but free is always better....

Weight loss plans can become very expensive when you consider all of the diet aids and techniques you may have to utilize to reach your goals. 

Today's economy almost precludes you from aggressively pursuing an effective weight loss program due to the anticipated expense involved.
