'Tis the Season to be Fat...and How to Overcome It During the Holidays

I and my wife went to a lot of special dinners this December, and you won't believe the kinds of delicious foods served us. Just imagine eating at Vikings Marikina.
No wonder then so many people gain weight during the holidays. Not only that, tragically, Christmas is also said to record the most number of heart attacks during the year, said an article on DFW.CbsLocal.Com titled Fatal Heart Attacks Occur on Christmas More than Any Other Day in 2014.

"Researchers, more than a decade ago, found that more fatal heart attacks occur on Christmas Day than any other day of the year," the article said. "The 2nd busiest day is December 26th and the 3rd busiest is January 1st.

"The pattern has continued for so long that health care workers coined the term 'Christmas Coronary'."

But probably more than suffering a heart attack, most people are worried about getting fatter after Christmas and New Year's. Aside from eating and drinking too much, December is …

10 Reasons Why December is a Deadly Month--and How Few Folks are Aware of It

December is a festive month as well as a deadly month. And what makes it even deadlier is that most folks aren't aware of it. Here are reasons why December is a deadly month, and note how they are health and fitness related:

1. Christmas rush. Instead of slowing down because working people are about to take a long Christmas break, they actually get busier at the office than usual. Most office works, in fact, get more hectic because of the closing fiscal year. Without knowing it, people trapped in the Christmas rush suffer more from free radical damage due to over stress.

2. People get busier during Christmas "vacation." Christmas "vacation" is just a myth to most people who really get busier than usual even at home during this Season. There are lots of party invitations, so many parties to prepare foods and party programs for, so many Christmas decors to put up (and deciding the right arrangements and places for them), so many dance or song numbers to practice…

5 Reasons Why You're Still Fat Even If You Exercise

Everyday when I go out for a jog I see them--they've been exercising for years and yet they just seem to grow bigger and their tummies more bulging. And you're probably like that, too. Why can't some people lose weight? Well probably, here are 5 reasons why you're still fat even if you exercise:

1. You're not eating well. Eating less often does not make you lose weight. It will, probably for some time, but then you'd get overweight again and probably even worse. Imagine all that sacrifice with little to zero result. To get an idea why you need to eat enough and why you need to get rid of strict diets, see this article.
2. You eat the wrong foods. There are foods thatworsen your metabolism. Some even destroy it. And foods that damage metabolism (tend to slow it down), like processed foods, have the most TV ads--even billboard and newspaper ads--telling you how they're supposed to be "fortified" with vitamins and minerals. Or probably you've be…

Beat Your Skin Problems Today and Start Living Life to the Full

It's somewhat absurd but it's a fact of life--skin problems can hinder you from living life to the full if you don't know how to beat them. They tend to keep you indoors, or worse withdrawn from humanity.

And if you're not enjoying life to the full right now, your health can be direly affected. Most ailments are due to a sever lack of happiness. Mark those words.

Some skin blemishes are not that serious--some dark spots, a little bit of discoloration, some freckles, dry skin. They are problems but they're nothing like pimples or acne. Especially acne.

Acne, for instance, is not just ugly; they're painful as well. One wrong move or touch and it's a big OUCH! Then it glows an ugly red and swells. So they definitely take the zest out of your life.

What do you do?

But before that, the first question we should ask ourselves probably should be, why are we so bothered by skin problems especially on the face?

Facial skin problems seem to demolish your world. This …

This Shortens Life, So Avoid it at All Cost

You not only can die young but it also cuts short your enjoyment of life. That's what we mean by saying "It shortens life."

Life is already short, but it further shortens if you let this thing rule in you--stress. And the mother of all stress is the abnormal need to achieve a lot of things. Why do they need lots of achievements? So they can be great.

Often, you pull down a lot of other people to the abyss of stress and miserable existence because of your need to be great. You're like a disaster or calamity. Where you are, a lot of innocent victims get their lives all messed up.

And these poor miserable souls are willing to be your victims because they need money to survive daily.

It seems a hopeless labyrinth with no way out.

How do you avoid this kind of stress? Is there really a way out?

There is, otherwise, God wouldn't have written this passage in His Word: "Do not become slaves of men" [1 Corinthians 7.23]

Consider these ideas:
Quit desiring to be …

Eat Everything and Lose Weight! Eat Less and Gain Weight! Here's Why!

How would you like to eat everything--including your favorite desserts--and still lose weight?

Too good to be true? Well, perhaps if I were selling you a weight loss product to achieve this, it's probably too good to be true.

But I'm not.

It's all natural and you don't have to buy anything--cheap health and fitness with middle income budget.

In fact, the less food you eat, the harder for you to lose weight. You may even gain more weight by lessening your food intake. Ironic but it's true. And there's a scientific explanation.

It's all about Leptin. It's a protein hormone naturally produced by the body that is the main key to regulating fat storage.

Remember the word--leptin.

Leptin is why some people can't lose weight no matter how hard they try. It's also why some people just lose weight like crazy even if they eat a lot with zero exercise (probably why Jughead can eat a lot and remain slim).

Aside from exercise, you need to have a healthy sup…
