Let’s Talk Diets

Fad diets have popped up all over the internet and media thanks to their promises of helping you lose weight quickly and easily. While there is certainly truth to many of these fad diets, it’s important to remember one crucial fact that everyone seems to forget; these companies are motivated by money.
Perhaps it’s a rather cynical take on the weight loss industry, but when you consider that it’s a growing market worth over $72.2 billion US dollars, it’s hard to imagine that people are motivated purely by good will or a passion to help people lose weight.
The dangers of a fad diet
Fad diets tend to offer some short-term results. For instance, cutting out carbs or going on a keto diet tends to offer fantastic weight loss results, but these are only short-term results that introduce some very real long-term dangers. Short-term in this case isn’t only a few months either–it’s several years.
Many people put back on the weight they lose after a couple of years because those diets simply aren’t sustainable. What’s needed is a healthy diet that provides all of the nutrition you need while also working on becoming more active so that your heart has a chance to work out. More exercise combined with a healthy diet and portion control is arguably the best long-term solution for stable weight loss.
Below, we’ve included an infographic that covers some of the dangers of fad diets and why you should avoid trying one for an extended period of time.

Regain Your Shape!!!!

There are so many shapewear companies out there..I feel like Spanx really took over the market with their products.  Over the years, I bought lots of Spanx.  And after Gwyneth wore 2 to the Oscars, many friends, myself included started doing the same!!!!! But Spanx never really worked for me… I don’t like the material and I really don’t like the fit..BUT I love shapewear and I definitely need it, especially for certain dresses/outfits.  I came across a company, Shapellx Best Shapewear!!! on Instagram, you know one of those “click here” to buy ads and I immediately purchased one of their products and I love it.. It does not roll down, it lays flat under all materials and it is not clingy (I always thought the Spanx material was too clingy).  The product that I purchased really does slim down your entire body.  It’s incredible.   On the site, you will see that everything is mostly HIGH compression, which means it really sucks you in!!!!!  They also have a list where you can choose your “control” area. I find the site very easy to use!!!

Ultimately, I decided to write a post about shapewear because I did get a few questions about which style to buy and how to choose which piece is right for you.  Basically, it is best to stick to your regular size, so that the garment fits just right (Here is their sizing help chart…sooo helpful).  If you want to minimize your thighs get a pair of footless tights or biker short style.  For smooth lines around the torso, get something with a high waist or a waist trainer for women and for all-over shaping (my favorite!!!!!) choose a bodysuit or these thong shapewear bodysuits!!!

So are you ready to nip and tuck your body?  Here are links to some of their best sellers!!!

Here are the Shapellx best shapewear pieces

I have also been asked about waist and body trimmers, where you train your body to get smaller by wearing these a few hours a day!!!! I have never tried any of these, but sign me up!!!!

Shapellx also has a full line of flattering leggings and workout 

This is the shaper that I bought and it’s really really good!!!

And lastly the the sooo popular thong shapewear bodysuits!!!!

Reasons Why Moderation is the Key To A Healthy Lifestyle

Welcome to Wellness Weekend!!!!  Today we are focusing on moderation..I hope you find this article as helpful as I have during this hectic holiday season!!!!!

Life of excess and life of deprivation – neither of them is the right way to live your life, yet so many people struggle to find the golden middle and with it, the happiness and freedom it brings. Even though we live in a society that promotes seeking pleasures and always striving for more, it is possible to break free from these patterns and find balance in your life. Here are a couple of reasons why you should be more moderate and how it will affect your lifestyle.

It brings balance into your life…

Life is all about creating harmony, balancing between the two extremes – life of excess and life of deficiency, and neither of the two is good for you, your body, or your mind. Although maintaining balance in every aspect of your life may seem like something that is hard to reach, it is crucial for preserving your well-being, and it has to apply beyond the aspects of eating, drinking, and exercising. Living life in moderation means you get to enjoy the things that bring joy to your life as long as there are specific boundaries you’ve set and you know you won’t cross them.

…While a life of excess may disrupt it

Even though both deprivation and excess have their drawbacks, there is something that distinguishes deprivation from its extreme counterpart, and that is the fact that it comes with fewer problems, even though it may not be as pleasurable. On the other hand, a life of excess is likely to cause you problems in the long run, be it physical or mental health issues, emotional instability, or financial problems. Although neither of the two is good for you, doing things in excess may bring chaos into your life, and cause problems that will disrupt balance and disable you from living in harmony.

It keeps you from going to the extremes…

Walking down the line that separates black from white brings a sense of wellness into your life, surrounding you with joy and helping you look at life from a more positive, optimistic perspective. When there’s moderation in everything, from food and drinks to sleeping and working, a person is more likely to feel as if they are in control of their life, and all the decisions they’re making are more likely to bring them joy than make them feel miserable, as is often the case with going to either of the extremes.

…And extremes often lead to addiction

However, more often than not, people feel as if they aren’t the ones in charge of their lives, thinking of themselves as if they’re unable to break away from certain habits that they know are getting in their way of becoming happier and healthier individuals. Smoking too much or drinking excessively can cause a person to develop an addiction, and when things get out of control completely, people often turn to drugs as their way of coping with day-to-day problems. In America alone, we’re seeing growth in drug use, which causes many individuals to seek help at the Orange County rehab center in order to get back in balance and regain control over their lives.

It gives you time and freedom to do the things you love…

Once you conquer your addictions and kick all the bad habits you have, you begin to see just how time-consuming and energy-draining those habits were, not to mention how negatively they affected your finances. Getting your life back in balance and turning to other, more productive hobbies and interests will give you the freedom to explore and look for things that aren’t just momentary pleasures, but rather things that truly make you feel happy and fulfilled. Doing things in moderation will also help you be more productive, which will result in overall better time management, making it possible for you to accomplish more things during the day.

…But too much of a good thing can be bad for you

While you may enjoy your newfound, healthy and productive hobbies, remember that they, too, should be done in moderation. Sometimes, too much of a good thing can be bad for you, and even though you may see nothing wrong with exercising every day or working hard to prove yourself, when done in excess, those healthy and productive habits can be detrimental to your health and mind. It is just as easy to get an unhealthy obsession with being healthy. While you may find health products like CBD oil to be the Holy Grail for your problems, there will come a time that you build up a tolerance to such a life-changing product. It’s important to incorporate healthy products into your life (if CBD oil intrigues you, Remedy Review provides detailed articles) but they aren’t worth anything unless you have routines and processes to help achieve a healthy body and mind. Both of them require self-discipline, effort, and focus, and usually take a lot of time until you start seeing the results, but it’s important to understand that you shouldn’t concentrate on just one aspect of your life, but rather diversify and try to be equally as good in other areas of life.  Check out My Fit Station for a healthy alternative to your current exercise regime.
It also includes going for regular health and dental checkups.  If you need a dentist, consider looking for a dentist in Greenbelt
Moderation is, indeed, key to a healthy lifestyle, as it reintroduces balance into our lives while also bringing numerous other benefits which make all the effort it takes worth our while. Give some thought to your own habits, re-examine your bad ones, and work on them in order to surround yourself with harmony and become the person you’ve always wanted to be.

Tried dieting?

The more scientific research that is done about dieting and weight gain, we understand that for some people it’s abnormally hard to lose those extra pounds. Some of us are genetically predisposed to gaining weight very easily and that can lead to an uphill struggle. But if you were to speak withThe Bariatric Experts they could show you three different procedures that would untie your hands and allow you to control your weight like everybody else. The gastric bypass and the gastric sleeve are the most popular but the lap-band to sleeve restriction is also a great choice for some. They work with lots of official associations and they’re widely recognized as being trusted professionals in their industry.
