This is Probably Why Your Body Refuses to Lose Weight

www.defininghopes.com
Slow metabolism is one reason why your body probably refuses to lose weight. No matter what your diet or workout is, you may have to know how to beat slow metabolism to produce substantial results.

But wait!

Did you know there's something more powerful than metabolism?

It's called the will--intellectual will to be precise. A lot of things in life really depends on what the mind wills. I've read books and articles about how some doctors gave placebo pills to their patients just to help them develop a mental will to get well. I've also read stuffs about how some patients who got worse even if they had a good chance of recovering and were taking the best medicines, just because they'd lost the will to live.

In fact, some who are healthy feel terribly sick because that's what their intellectual will makes them feel.

Often, it's all in the mind. And weight loss is often like that.

What good would healthy diets and workouts do you if deep inside you believe you'd always be fat? That you were designed to gain weight? That nothing you do would work?

I'm not saying weight loss is just a matter of thinking minus all physical efforts. You have to come up with a healthy balance of healthy diet, workout, rest, fun, supplements, and a conducive intellectual will. Be a well rounded individual. On top of everything, stay happy.

There will always be negative thoughts roaming around in your mind. An unconscious will to fail. It's normal, we all have that. But the thing is to brush it aside and fill your thoughts with the correct mental will.

I'm telling you, there is nothing impossible in life--if you just believe it--especially if you do things with God. I love the ad phrase--Impossible is Nothing.

Whether trying to lose weight or getting rid of an ailment--try positive thinking or better yet, a positive mental will. Fill in the blank: "I will _______ with God's grace!"

I'm not saying it will always work. I'm saying, it's always worth doing. So what if it doesn't work? At least, it will make things easier. But I'm telling you, it can work! You can make it happen--with God!

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…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.

Here are my secrets on how I get physically fit. Click here.

If you peel off a banana, make sure you eat the whole thing now. Don&#…

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…
