Weight loss Tips

You know you are experiencing yo-yo dieting, but do not know how to stop it! It is time to get your balance back. The following easy weight loss tips will help you lose weight in a healthy way.

When eating out, always choose the smallest portion size available.

When we choose larger meals, most of us tend to eat past the point of hunger and in doing so consume more kilojoules than we need which contributes to weight gain.

If you often find yourself reaching for chocolate or lollies in between meals, try eating a handful or two of mixed, unsalted nuts instead.

For best results, mix your own and include nuts that you don't necessarily eat on their own. Eating mixed nuts together means you won't even notice the ones you don't normally eat.

Although some nuts are relatively high in fat, the fat they contain is good fat that our body needs to stay healthy. And because they are so filling, you will probably end up consuming far less total calories than if you ate a less healthy alternative.

Diet for Weight Loss

In a twelve-week long study done over a decade ago (year 2000), scientists compared the weight loss progress of people on "diet only"programs to people on "exercise only" programs The overweight women in "diet only" program lost 5.5kg (12.12 lbs) and men lost 8.4kg (18.51 lbs). This was accomplished by reducing the caloric consumption of women by an average of 945 kilocalories per day and men by 1705 kilocalories per day.

On the other hand, in "exercise only" group, women lost 0.6 kg (1.32 lbs) and men lost 0.3 kg (0.66 lbs). This group had performed walking and jogging exercises 5 days a week for 30 minutes a day. On average, a woman burned 190 kcal per session while man burned 255 kcal. Women in this program lost about 2% of their body fat, while women in "diet only" program lost about 6% of their body fat. The men in "diet only" program lost about 5% of their body fat, whereas men in "exercise only" program did not see any significant change. As you can see, that eating diets low in calories is much more efficient method for losing weight.

Breakfast items to Avoid

Eating small frequent meals help to balance your calorie intake throughout the day and also keeps your blood sugar level balanced. Instead of eating 3 big meals, try to eat 5 - 6 smaller meals throughout the day.

Some Of The Best Womens Self Defense Tips

In the USA, every two minutes a woman is being raped.

A 1993 survey revealed that 50% of Canadian women have experienced an incident of sexual assault or physical violence.

In Australia, 19% of women aged 18 to 24 experienced an act of violence in the last year.

Statistics show that one in very four women in America will be sexually assaulted in her lifetime.

These are SHOCKING statistics!

For more than 30 years I have been running specialized self defence courses and seminars. Over that time I have shown thousands of people how to protect and look after themselves.
Increasing personal safety ALWAYS commences with awareness.

Since most women fear attacks of a sexual nature more than anything else most of my quick tips are geared towards that.

You’re tired, it’s late and you think you hear footsteps behind you. Nervously, you turn around and see a shadow. Self-defense instructors call this the “uh-oh” moment—the moment before a possible assault. A mugging, rape or attack can happen to anybody at anytime. Here’s what to do if your “uh oh” swings into high gear:

Let the person know you are aware of their presence.
Immediately turn to where you heard the noise. Firmly and loudly say, “I hear you. I don’t want any trouble. Go away right now.” Most attackers will judge you based on your initial reaction.

Take a quick personal inventory.
Do you have an umbrella? Books? A pen? Any object you have can be used as your personal weapon. You’ll want to hang on to these. If you’re empty-handed, try to grab any object within reach, such as a trash can lid or a branch off a tree. If you can swing or poke with it, it could save your life.

Ready your hair.
If you have long hair, tuck it into the back of your outfit. If you have a ponytail, quickly undo it and do the same. Many attackers reach for a woman’s hair first.

If you are a woman, here is a list of ten simple things that you can do immediately that will increase your safety:

1 - Do not wear revealing clothing in public places. Doing so will ensure that you attract plenty of attention, including attention from those people with evil intent. Be discrete and leave provocative wear to those times when you can enjoy the intimacy of your partner.

2 - Trust your instincts. Women are very intuitive. If you think a situation might be dangerous then it probably is. That little guardian angel should be trusted rather than ignored.

3 - Rape and other sexual assault is always increasing. In the event of the worst outcome use your fingernails to gouge your attacker's cheek. It marks him for identification and you will have DNA under your nails.

4 - Drive your motor vehicle in a courteous manner. Nobody appreciates rude hand signs. Remember - eventually you have to stop, even if it is to refuel. Psycho cases might follow you for many miles "just to teach you a lesson" - all because you made yourself a target to their twisted minds.

5 - Drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, taking mind altering drugs and leaving ANY food or drink unattended where it may be tampered with is a recipe for disaster. Give your self an even chance.

6 - NEVER pick up hitch-hikers and ABSOLUTELY NEVER hitch-hike yourself.

7 - If you live alone make sure that all your mail is addressed by just your first initial followed by your surname. Never allow mail to be addressed to you with salutations like Miss, Mrs, Ms or with your christian or given name. Those letters and parcels pass many eyes before they get to you. Change them. Make them nondescript as to your sex and marital status. Why allow anybody even one extra shred of information about you?

8 - NEVER walk alone at night or at any time in isolated areas. Predators love these locations. Avoid them.

9 - Many sexual acts are committed by people who the victims knew - or, at least, thought they knew! Be friendly and polite by all means but be vigilant for tell-tale signs of "strange" behavior. Do NOT flirt. Be firm about any unwanted attention, particularly in the work place.

10 - Sexual attack is usually preceded by some visual sign, which is usually preceded by some verbal approach before the physical action. Recognize the sequence: the look - the talk - the attack.
