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 supply of leptin in your body to lose weight. And to get enough of it, you need to eat enough food. You need enough carbs. Once you lessen your food intake, leptin levels drop. Then your body is unable to lose weight.

That's why skipping meals or eating less doesn't work. As I have always said, you have to eat everything in healthy proportions.

But you can't also be eating like a glutton all day everyday and expect leptin to keep you slim. Common sense will tell you, it's got to be balanced diet.

So I recommend you eat balanced everday (skipping no meal or avoiding no food except processed food) and then have a cheat day once a week. A cheat day is when you eat all you can. That raises your leptin levels. Then go average again after that. But do increase your carbohydrates intake a little bit more each day as you approach cheat day.

I said a little bit each day, okay? Apply common sense to that.

And avoid processed food and processed meat at all cost. They trigger leptin resistance--a condition when your body doesn't respond anymore to the hormone.

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&#…
