So, You Come From a Family of Fat People--Are You Sure Your Family's to Blame?

blogs.telegraph.co.uk
It's not your family, genes, or the way God made you that's to blame. I don't know if that's good or bad news to you. Well, it's good news because there's still hope for losing weight even if everyone in your family is overweight.

Bad news is, you can't blame genes or family fat anymore for being overweight. No more excuses.

Experts say it has nothing to do with family or genetics and has everything to do with what you do to yourself. In short, lifestyle.

Well, if you come from a family of fat people, it may mean you may need to work a bit more at losing weight, but your choice is what really counts in the end. Are you going to settle for that (family's to blame) or are you going to change all that?

Right choices can easily overcome wrong unfavorable dispositions. If I were you, I'd change all that and determine to get my ideal weight.

OH YES YOU CAN!

I mean, Epigenetics experts have already said so--who are we novices to contradict? Epigenetics studies how other factors, aside from genes or DNA, affect fat storage in the body and many more.

Yup, epigenetics says no one is destined to be overweight forever.

Have you seen "The Biggest Loser" on TV? You saw how big they all were? And then after hard work, they managed to lose weight incredibly! That's evidence enough that epigenetics works. They simply changed their lifestyles and environments.

Here are some Tips for You

One way is to get your liver healthier. The liver has lots to do with fat burning aside from removing toxins from the body. It's easy to imagine what happens to you if you give your liver added work--overeating. The more junks you eat the more unnecessary added work you give your liver.

What I do is eat healthy natural food I know won't cause my liver to overwork. Drink natural and fresh fruit juices as often as you can. I love fresh coconut juice (there you are! I just gave away a precious tip probably worth $500!).

Don't keep eating the whole day. Yes, you may eat small meals more often, but make sure they're not something that would stress out your liver and digestive system. If you eat a lot, limit eating to 3 times a day, and try to cut down on fatty food.

You want to have a healthy liver? Do water therapy each morning (at 5 am daily I drink 3 tall glasses). Eat more fiber rich vegetables, limit cooking oil, and enjoy lots of fresh fruit juices like kalamansi. Kalamansi juice is great!

Did I mention anything expensive? They're all for cheap health and fitness with middle income budget.

Yes, it' not your family. It's really YOU.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.



Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
