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…

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&#…
