Scientists Find Long-Term Cardiovascular Benefits of Even Moderate Weight Loss
Make positive lifestyle changes today and literally change your life forever. That’s not just motivational speak. Science shows that key cardiovascular health indicators are dramatically improved after losing weight.
What can that mean for you?
Why do so many people who have dieted in the past gain what they lost back (plus some)? Because diets don’t address the real reasons we are overweight. In order to enjoy long-term success, a new healthy lifestyle, and a better future you have to overcome those mental roadblocks as well as the physical ones. But it’s not enough to have a goal in mind. You have to constantly check yourself to ensure you’re not undermining your own success.
Specifically, you have to stop letting your past haunt you.
That can seem like an insurmountable obstacle. Our past is, by definition, what defines us. So how can we overcome it?
Less Than 3% of Americans Live a Healthy Lifestyle
If you ask most Americans if they live a healthy lifestyle they’ll answer “yes.” But the data says different.

Even 1/3 of our children are obese.
So can most of us truthfully say we’re healthy?
You hear it time and time again: drink more water.
Staying sufficiently hydrated is a wonderful way to feel your best and helps your body work at the peak of personal performance.

In fact, water may just be your secret weight loss tool.
Everybody is looking for an easy way to lose weight on the run. We have to. Our lives have become much more active than ever before. Work, kids, hobbies, and the dreaded commute take up most of our day, adding stress and limiting the amount of time we can spend on ourselves—both of which are bad for our waistlines.
Here are 4 tips that can help you lose weight on the run no matter how busy your life is.
Fasting Diet Plans That Work!
Recent laboratory and real-world studies have shown that when we eat may have a significant effect on our metabolism, our overall weight, and our ability to lose those unwanted pounds. Not only that, it can play a significant role in predicting future disease and disability. But you still have to keep that calorie count in mind if you want to lose weight. Look for fasting diet plans that incorporate both methods.
Intermittent Fasting is not a new concept. Many cultures around the world have been fasting to demonstrate piety during holy days for centuries. However, fasting as a form of weight loss has often been saddled with a bad reputation. Many opponents say (often without scientific basis) that fasting is bad for you, that it depletes the body of necessary nutrients, and that it can destroy muscle mass in as little as 12 hours.
