Take control of your wellness journey.
The healthier each of us is, the healthier we all are.
It is amazing to see so many people motivated to make changes in their lives and to focus on themselves in ways they have not before. This year we’re thinking about new goals to work towards and new habits to implement that will help us be our best selves. And we’re starting with what lies at the core – our mental health.
Have you put on weight recently? You’re not alone. Stress and holidays can sap our mental strength and willpower and cause us to seek comfort in food. But it doesn’t have to be that way. In fact, when you follow the simple plan outlined below, you can easily get your body back on track, take control of your cravings, and—as an added bonus—feel less stressed!
Hygge (pronounced “hue-guh”), is an all-encompassing lifestyle developed in Scandinavia that has become extremely popular in the last few years. The lifestyle (as you’d expect from a Scandinavian product) is all about simplicity, comfort, and contentment. From the frosty countries that embrace a world-famous minimalistic style in everything from architecture to diet, Hygge helps individuals take pleasure and contentment from the run-of-the-mill “small things” we all experience every day.
You hear the word “inflammation” and you might think of a sprained ankle or swollen feet after a hard day’s work, but inflammation is much more common (and more harmful) than that. Any of the soft tissues in your body can become inflamed and you may not even know it. This type of inflammation has been linked to depression, weight gain, skin conditions, the speed with which Alzheimer’s progresses, and even heart disease. Scientists are even studying the effects of inflammation related to COVID-19 infections.
Is carb cycling just another dieting fad or is there real science to back up the claim that carb cycling can help you burn fat?
What is Carb Cycling?
For years, dieters have been hammered by the notion that carbohydrates are “bad” if you’re trying to lose weight. That, it turns out, is not entirely true. No nutritional group is essentially “bad (or essentially “good”).
Dieting isn’t easy. In fact, the very concept of “dieting” is inherently flawed, implying it’s something short-term. Classifying a diet as temporary actually makes it harder to maintain healthy actions long enough to see results.
Instead, dieting should be a constant flow towards healthier eating habits. That mental shift turns something you’re forcing yourself to do into something that you do automatically. The change is subtle but the psychological impact is stunning.
Most of us start each new year with a list of resolutions. But more than half of all New Year’s resolutions fail.
Why? Because these resolutions are often one dimensional and lack a plan of action. That’s why we’re inviting you to participate in a ritual of retrospection instead.
The holidays always seem to be right around the corner. Often that means we are either trying to slim down for the annual gatherings with family and friends or shed excess pounds we’ve put on through indulging in once-a-year treats. But, with a little willpower, a few good recipes, and a plan you can jump-start and maintain weight loss before, during, and especially after the holiday season.
How Gut Health Impacts Our Mood and Everyday Life
There has been a tremendous amount of new research concerning how our gut communicates with our minds and vice-versa. The new science that has resulted from that research suggests that our gut health has a much more far-reaching impact on our lives than we ever imagined.
Is our lifestyle making us unhealthy?
The truth is that we, as a nation, have changed the way we live over the last 40 years. We’ve decreased the amount of physical activity in which we engage while simultaneously increasing the amount of sedentary hours we put in both at work and at home. This combination has led to harmful weight gain and preventable chronic diseases.
How often have you heard that dieting alone isn’t the answer to your weight loss problem? The best way to lose weight is by combining a calorie restrictive diet with moderate amounts of exercise. It makes sense—if you eat less and burn more calories, you will lose weight.
But the term “exercise” scares a lot of people away, and that fear eats at their willpower. Thankfully, a new study shows that you don’t have to hit the gym five days a week to get health and weight loss benefits. In fact, something as simple as walking a little more every day (say three hours per week, which is less than 30 minutes per day) can have a dramatic effect on your health!
The Hollywood 48-Hour Miracle Diet® is more than just an effective weight loss tool—it can be used to help maintain a healthy lifestyle, cleanse your body of harmful toxins, and even be combined with other dieting practices to achieve the maximum results!
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?
Naturopathic doctors and holistic nutritionists have understood the benefits of detox diets for years. They’ve been using these cleansing “rituals” to clear patients’ bodies of excess weight and accumulated toxins for centuries. Similar to fasting diets, these detox diets limit what an individual can eat or drink for a period of a day or more, allowing the body to process out (or purge):
- Excess waste
- Harmful toxins
- Excess water
- Unneeded calories
You’ve no doubt heard about juice cleanses before. Simply drink juice and lose weight! It’s an alluring option for folks who have struggled with traditional diets and want to drop pounds quickly. But if you’ve never done a juice cleanse you likely have questions: are they healthy? Can I eat anything while I’m juicing? What types of juice should I drink? Do I have to juice my own fruits and veggies? What is the best juice cleanse?
Occasional fasting diets have become extremely popular in recent years. They deliver amazing weight loss results quickly and have a host of incredible health benefits associated with them. Many people believe that occasional fasting can train your body to use nutrients more efficiently, help avoid Type 2 diabetes, decrease the risk of heart disease and more.
The nutrition facts panel on the foods you buy may say 100 calories per serving, but if you are eating more than one serving you could easily double or triple your calorie intake without realizing it. If you are not measuring your cereal, weighing your salmon fillet, or counting your chips, you are probably not eating the suggested serving size. All those uncounted calories could be sabotaging your weight loss efforts. Here’s how to make the numbers work for you!
The decision you made to lose weight was a very personal one. But there are thousands of people out there who have made that exact same resolution. And though everyone’s journey is unique, the Hollywood Diet® line of products can help everyone reach their goal!
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.
When you use a fasting diet such as that recommended by The Hollywood 24 or 48 Hour Miracle Diets®, you’re consuming fewer calories over a prolonged period. This will automatically result in weight loss, but the effect on your body chemistry will help jump start fat burning! By giving your pancreas a rest, you’ll boost the effectiveness of existing insulin which means you’ll produce less, it will work better, and you won’t have excess levels of it floating around in your bloodstream.
Don’t believe everything you see on T.V. (and certainly not everything you read on the Internet). These “new” fasting diets that everyone is talking about –The Fast Diet, the 5:2 Diet, and seemingly endless variations of alternate-day or intermittent fasting “IF” diets – aren’t really “new” at all! They’re built on research that has been around for decades … research that helped launch the Hollywood Miracle Diet® more than 16 years ago!
All of these other diets are cashing in on what we already knew!
