Weight Loss and Fitness

Weight Loss and Fitness are achieved with the correct Diet and exercise.

Set your Weight loss and Fitness goals in smaller achievable steps so as you reach those goals you feel good and want to continue on to the next goal or step of you weight Loss and or Fitness.
If you have an end goal of losing 100 pounds then you should break it down into 4 to 5 stages or goals. Set your first goal at 20 to 25 pounds and so on.
Next you need to change your eating habits that got to this point. It is okay to eat most food when you set limitations on the quantity and frequency of those foods.
You will have the greatest success with your Weight Loss when you change your eating habits to something you can continue to do long term and make it part of your lifestyle.
The reason you fail to keep the weight off permanently is due to the fact that you use a Diet that you cannot adhere to long term and slowly set back into the habits that sabotage your efforts.
You need to ease into changing your eating habits by eating a little less here and there. Don’t eat the whole big bag of chips but have a small bowl full. If you have a sweet tooth try substituting with fruit occasionally. You don’t need to totally quit eating any of the foods you love you just need to change how often and how much of those foods you eat.
While you are getting your eating habits under control you will need to think about what kind of exercise you can do and incorporate them into your lifestyle change. You don’t need extreme exercise to lose weight and get fit. If you are already active and maybe play sports, bicycle, walk, dance, swim etc then you are going to have great success with your weight loss efforts. If you don’t do any of these then you need to start and do it in a way that makes it enjoyable. The key is to have fun with it and not make it harder on yourself. Walk with a friend or spouse and chit chat as you walk or listen to music or download and listen to a program of something that you wish to learn and multiply your efforts.
There is no way you will ever stick with it and have success if you don’t make it fun and realistic eating the foods you love other wise you will be miserable and irritable and that is no way to live. Just start making small changes and limiting the how much and how often you eat the food you know to be putting on the pounds.

Weight Loss Made Easy

Weight loss is not hard when you wrap your head around the basics.

If you want to lose weight you need to know and implement some very basic strategies.

You must know yourself and have a good understanding of food in order to have any success in weight loss.

There are so many gimmicks out there sending the wrong messages. You need to control your eating and do some exercise to live a healthy and desirable life.

You will feel so much better about yourself if you just take control of your life, your eating habits and your body.

You need to take control and stand up and fight off the bad habits and the decision making that have got you to this point.

Being overweight is dangerous and plays on your emotions and a whole host of other things in your life.

Food is so readily available with fancy packaging and advertising with plays on words that have you believing they are good for you.

I was overweight for years and have dealt with a lot of the same pain and anguish you are feeling.

You need to exercise, you need to pay attention to what you are eating and get it under control and take back your life.

We have different energy levels and  eating habits all because of the choices we make everyday.

You need to take control today and be strong for the long term change. You can eat all the food you eat now, just not at the same time and as much.

I still eat all of the same food that ate when I was obese, just not all at the same time, same sitting.

You mustn’t use food as a comforter. If you would just take back your life with regular exercise, food can still be your friend, not the enemy.

Diet fads come and go and if you choose to continue to look for a magic pill you are kidding yourself.

Weight loss only comes when you understand food and its place along with exercise, period.

If you are lazy then get busy and fire up your metabolism with the right eating habits and good exercise that will do wonders for you and your long term health.

There is no greater feeling than taking control of your health and losing weight, having energy and doing it without some fad diet that will only make you crave food and gain more weight when you get tired of it.

My friend Mike has taught me so much about food, weight loss and exercising the right way that I recommend you visit his site at http://abbsworkout.net for more great information.

Children who report frequent family shared meals eat healthier Diets than their peers who don’t, according to the study. You need to have good and healthy food in the home for the child to make healthy choices. Things such as fruit, nuts, veggies, yogurt, cheese for snacking between meals rather than chips etc. 4 Breakfast is very important – A breakfast that consists of protein, starch and fat will keep your children more alert energized throughout the day. Studies have shown that weight loss is much more difficult for people who do not eat breakfast.

5 physical activities are crucial – As a family physical activities are very important and need to be done as a family as often as possible. Allow the children to come up with ideas for physical activities and vote on them. Maybe take walks together after dinner or ride bikes together. Also enroll in sports, dance, swimming and martial arts and self defense are very good for physical health and weight. Any activities that the children look forward too are excellent motivators and will keep them interested because they enjoy it. Turn on music and dance around the home and have is great fun and won’t be seen as a task.

How Dieting can sabotage your Weight Loss efforts

Are you tired of yoyo Dieting and weight loss? There must be a better way to lose weight and keep it off without being hungry all the time and essentially doing more harm than good to our bodies. You must know that yo yo dieting while trying one diet after another will not give you the long term satisfaction of weight loss you crave. I know for me it iwas very depressing and has definitely taken a toll on my body over the years. I don’t believe that I am alone when I say that I am tired of the fad diets promising us the next best way to lose weight. There is only one problem with a lot of the diets we use for weight loss. Our body is much smarter than we are at times and dieting is a perfect example. Our bodies can only work with the food we eat or don’t eat. Here is what I mean, we are eating everything and anything we wish and then all of sudden we decide okay that is enough I am going to start a diet. Our body only knows that we went from a plentiful supply of food to sporadic intervals of food being consumed. Our body now believes that food is scarce and it better store fat to prepare itself for this food shortage. Our bodies know their role, the problem is we are not working as one when we decide to deprive our body of the food it has grown accustomed too. In order for us to lose weight and keep it off there has to be a shift in our approach to weight loss. We must be in sync with our bodies interpretation of our actions. We need to figure out what is the correct amount of food for our body. We need to consider how much food is optimal for us personally, we must factor activity level, height, weight, age, male or female to figure out how much food we really need to sustain us. I know that nobody wants to count calories and keep track of what we are consuming but for some of us this is a must until we get on track and begin to take on a role of eating for who we are and what we need personally for this lifestyle change. Without this lifestyle change we can never mend our old ways in order to lose weight and keep it off. Not everyone needs to count calories as long as they have a reasonable understanding of what a correct portion of food looks like. The bottom line is we must learn self control and not over indulge in the foods we know to be sabotaging our weigh loss. I know it is easier said than done sometimes but no one can do this for us, we must want this for our selves and begin the process. I know for some of us food is comforting making us feel better, it can be more of an underlaying issue. There are some variables to why we overeat but it still comes down to the fact of how much effort are we willing to put forth to acomplish our weight loss goals. There are programs that can help you figure out what food you can eat alot of and what to stay away from. I can write all about how this has helped my family and friends but it is easier to have you visit our affiliate site and listen to the presentation of all the food that can help you finally begin the lifestyle change needed for permanant weight loss. This may or may not be for you but definitely won’t hurt you to have a better understanding of what your body thinks of different foods and what changes you can make to help with your weight loss

Wii Fit Games – A New Way to Get in Shape


Wii fit
games have become increasingly popular and sophisticated since the Wii was launched in 2006. With its motion sensor controllers, casual gaming platform and worldwide appeal to men and women of all ages, the Wii console has become the perfect platform for fitness video games.

The first major fitness game for the Wii was Wii Fit. Wii Fit comes bundled with the Wii Balance Board that lets you control your on-screen movements. When performing your exercises, the Balance Board feeds back every movement you make to the game, and the game tells you how well you are doing.

Even though Nintendo launched Wii Fit to show how well the Balance Board worked as a new game controller (in the same way that Wii Sports showed off how well the Wii remote controller worked), the Wii Fit game has been hugely popular, and is still number 1 in the game charts in the UK and other countries, almost 18 months after its release.

Based on the Wii Fit’s success, many other fitness games are now available on the Wii console, including the sequel to Wii Fit, called Wii Fit Plus.

The original fitness booms of the 80s and 90s were fuelled by the availability of video recorders and DVD players in every house. Celebrities and their trainers were quick to produce workout videos, and the low price of videos and DVDs made it easy for people to do these workouts at home.

The problem with these workout videos though, was that they were a one-size-fits-all solution, and users couldn’t personalize their workouts or change the exercise routines in any way. If you wanted a different workout, you had to buy a new workout video.

The huge popularity of the Wii console around the world has now sparked a new fitness boom, and the Wii’s interactive features now let users choose a variety of exercise routines in a single game.

Most Wii fitness games let users create highly personalised workout programs based on answers they input into the game. Games can also create multiple workout routines for different users, making them ideal for families to use.

And as these Wii fitness video games have become more and more popular, celebrities and their trainers have been quick to add their names to the titles too. These include Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum and Daisy Fuentes Pilates.

Each fitness game uses a slightly different format to make the games fun, engaging and challenging, and users need to decide what motivates them to exercise when choosing a fitness video game.

Wii Fit introduced the Wii Balance Board, and most of the games on the market now incorporate the Balance Board into the game for at least some of the exercises. This lets people use their Balance Boards if they have them, but doesn’t stop people from using the game if they don’t own a Wii Balance Board.

My Fitness Coach is one of the leading fitness video games on the Wii, and is one of the few that doesn’t make use of the Balance Board or remote controller during workouts. Instead the game makes use of an in-game avatar, called Maya, who acts as your Personal Trainer. Maya gives you exercise advice, does your workouts with you, and shouts encouragement when you feel like you’re about to collapse. This in-game personal trainer works really well to create a highly personalised experience.

EA Sports Active takes a different approach and makes use of the Wii remote controller, nunchuck controller and an exercise resistance band during workouts. Your movements with the Wii remote and nunchuck tell the game how well you’re doing your exercises and the resistance band acts as weights for people who don’t have any exercise equipment at home. EA Sports Active also includes a few exercises that can be done with the Wii Balance Board.

One thing that most of these fitness games have in common is the huge selection of exercises that come with each game. This lets all of the games mix and match exercises to give you lots of different workouts and to stop you from getting bored. Exercises usually include stretching, cardio, upper body strength, lower body strength, abdominals, and yoga.

In addition to these general fitness games, there are a few specialized games that focus on only one type of exercise program. Yoga for Wii and Daisy Fuentes Pilates are great for yoga and pilates fans who want to do only these workouts and not worry about cardio or other strength exercises.

While the first wave of fitness video games have been purely exercise games, the second generation of fitness games now include healthy eating plans to complement the great workout programs.

NewU Personal Trainer includes comprehensive exercise programs from the personal trainers at the Fitness First gym chain, together with personalized healthy menus from the team at “You Are What You Eat”. Combining exercise and healthy eating makes these perfect lifestyle games for the whole family.

Based on the success of the current fitness video games, and the inclusion of healthy eating menus that will take upcoming games to the next level, it’s hard not to recommend a Wii fitness game to anyone who is seriously thinking of starting an exercise routine.

The relatively cheap price of most games, and the wide variety of exercises in each game, makes it a very cost effective option for most people when compared to the price of a gym membership. This is highlighted even more when comparing the cost of a game to the cost of gym memberships for a whole family.

The ability to work out whenever you want (and in the comfort of your own home), the ability to create and store personal workouts and eating plans for each member of the family, and the ability to select your own personal on-screen workout environments and music, makes Wii fitness games ideal for singles, married couples and families looking to get active.

Steve Braude runs the website Nintendo Wii Explained.com. Like the Nintendo Wii, this website is fun and vibrant with articles that explain all the features of the Wii console, its games and accessories in plain, simple English.
