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 that worsen 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 been eating in fast food stores. Eat home-cooked meals so you can control your salt, fat and carb intake and make sure they have zero preservatives. 

3. Your body is probably toxic. Even with the right healthy foods and workouts. you won't lose weight if you are toxic. How does your body become toxic? Simple--stress. Unhealthy stress daily will make everything you do to lose weight useless. Then add to that the junk foods and drinks you take also everyday (and are added expense). Start living a really happy life, with less worries, and eating natural healthy foods.

4. Your body tends to store more fat. Some people tend to store more fat in their bodies especially around their bellies. Why? It's mostly about slow metabolism. Sometimes it runs in the family. How do you program a faster metabolism? For starters, eat a healthy breakfast daily and keep physically active. Eat fresh fruits before meals. Eat less for supper--and then take a snack 30 minutes before you go to bed at night. Why? It boosts metabolism in the morning, says two studies done at the Florida State University mentioned in an article on Health.Com. Eat before-bedtime snack limited to 150 calories.

5. Carb intolerance. Examine yourself--if you see your belly and hips growing bigger each time you eat carbs, then eat less carbs. Don't get rid of it totally, though. You also need carbs to lose weight. The trick here is to lessen. Eating 5 small meals a day instead of 3 large ones is highly recommended.

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…
