Lose Weight With”Sensa”


Sensa is an all natural weight loss system that helps you to feel full faster so that you will eat less and lose weight.This is because the urge to eat is regulated by a specific portion of the brain called the satiety center.And as you eat, smell and taste receptors send messages to the brain, which releases hormones that trigger your body’s “feel full” signal.So by enhancing the perception of smell and taste, Sensa Tastants speed up the process of sensory-specific satiety so you are less inclined to overeat.If your struggling  with weight loss give Sensa a try.       How Sensa Works:                                                                                                                              The Scents from the Sensa Tastants travel through the nose and tongue to nerve receptors. The receptors then send signals that stimulate the olfactory bulb and the taste center in the brain.The olfactory bulb signals the satiety center in the hypothalamus which sends signals to the pituitary gland. The pituitary gland releases hormones that suppress hunger and appetite.                                                                                                                                      Sensa merely helps you eat less of the foods you love and gain greater satisfaction from smaller portions. The Sensa shaker contains “salty” and “sweet” Tastants. You just sprinkle the sweet Tastants on all sweet foods and the salty Tastants on everything else. If you are unsure if a food is sweet or salty, then use the sweet Tastants. Before you know it, your body is craving less and you’re losing weight.

Although the Tastants are labled as salty and sweet, they are used only as guidelines for the types of food they should be sprinkled on. Tastants do not make food taste salty or sweet in fact, they don’t change the taste of food at all. Also, salty Tastants contain less than 1 mg of sodium, and sweet Tastants contain NO sugar.Each Sensa Starter Kit comes with Sensa Tastants,User Guide,Tracking Log,and a How-To DVD Sensa is Clinically proven. with an  Average weight loss of 30.5 lbs in 6 months.                                                                              Body weight, Diet food, Food, Health, Loss Weight, Odor, Olfactory bulb, Portion Control, Portion control (dieting), Programs, Sensa, Tastant, Top Weight loss, weight loss, weight loss programs

Taking Control


Setbacks along your weight loss journey are no...

I recently received a comment from a man named john.This comment was rude and offensive towards some readers,this makes me angree and I will not approve these kinds of comments. My Readers are important to me and I am here to provide them with Healthy ways to shed those unwanted pounds,whether it’s a little or a lot I want my readers to know THEY can be successful on their weight loss journey and stay Healthy in the process.Everyone struggles with their weight for different reasons.People in general can be very cruel and think that if a person is over weight,it’s becouce they eat to much or they are not active enough and that just isn’t true.For many people struggling with their weight there are medical problems involved that make it harder for them to lose weight,and there are also some that becouse of medical problems they gain weight no matter how little the eat.The important thing to remember no matter what the reason is for your weight loss struggles, is that You can do something about it. Remember when you were a child at some point your parents probaly told you ( you can do anything if you set you’r mind to it ) well it’s still true today! So if you’r struggling with a weight issue and you come across a john in you’r life Please don’t let his/her ignorence discurage you, just hold you’r head high, look the person in the eye, and kindly let that person know that you will pray for a cure for their ignorence and walk away. People like this John only add to the already difficult time many people are having with their weight loss efforts,but only if we allow them the power to do so. I think it time for a little lesson from our kids,what do I mean well I’ve noticed a lot more over weight kids taking on sports in school to help them lose weight I mean stuff like basket ball,track stuff like that while so many adults are backing down and allowing the Johns in their world this much control,these kids are standing up and taking that control back.I have a cousin who never comes out of her house unless she has to becouse she is afraid of what people would say about her.Number One Rule In Life ( NEVER LET ANYONE HAVE THAT KIND OF CONTROL OVER YOU ) it’s you’r life get out there and live it.

Assessing Your Weight

How can I tell if I’m at a healthy weight?

Adult Body Mass Index or BMI

One way to begin to determine whether  your weight is a healthy one is to calculate your “body mass index”  (BMI). For most people, BMI is a reliable indicator of body fatness. It is  calculated based on your height and weight.

To calculate your BMI, see the BMI CalculatorBMI Calculator. Or determine your BMI by finding your height and weight in   this BMI Index Chart.

  • If your BMI is less than 18.5, it falls within the   “underweight” range.
  • If your BMI is 18.5 to 24.9, it falls within the “normal” or   Healthy Weight range.
  • If your BMI is 25.0 to 29.9, it falls within the “overweight”   range.
  • If your BMI is 30.0 or higher, it falls within the “obese”   range.

“Underweight”, “normal”, “overweight”, and “obese” are all labels  for ranges of weight. Obese and overweight describe ranges of weight that are  greater than what is considered healthy for a given height, while underweight  describes a weight that is lower than what is considered healthy. If your BMI  falls outside of the “normal” or Healthy Weight range, you may want to talk to  your doctor or health care provider about how you might achieve a healthier  body weight. Obesity and overweight have been shown to increase the likelihood  of certain diseases and other health problems.

At an individual level, BMI can be used as a screening tool  but is not diagnostic of the body fatness or health of an individual. A trained  healthcare provider should perform appropriate health assessments in order to  evaluate an individual’s health status and risks.

Weight Loss Success: Hattie Montgomery Let Go Of A Painful Past And Lost 300 Pounds

From day one, “plump” and “chubby” were common names for me. I was an active child, running and playing with my friends, and I thought that I ate the same as my family. Looking back, I now see that wasn’t the case; I ate the same foods, just a lot more. By elementary school, I was already developing. The bullying started then and didn’t stop. As the pain grew heavier, food became more comforting.

There were times during high school that I would try to lose weight, but it always came back. By the end of high school, I was already over 300 pounds. I excelled in school and loved singing. These activities were my way of escaping, the times where the pain was gone, and I could just be happy.

I carried on this way into my early 20s. At 24, I was sexually assaulted by a friend’s friend. The little bit of spirit and fight that was in me suddenly was nowhere to be found. I turned to my best friend — food — for comfort. When I was sad, I ate. When I was afraid or angry, I ate. I eventually could no longer deal with the pain and started eating to die. I was begging to be taken. I didn’t understand how my life had any purpose if all I was to people was a punching bag.

Breaking Point: I will never forget the day when I cut my leg and, instead of blood, clear liquid came out. I had such severe edema, apnea and high blood pressure that I knew my time was short. Then a few simple words changed everything. Simple kindness reminded me that I was loved and important. It suddenly made me see that giving up was not an option. I knew that it was an uphill battle because at this point I was 31 and weighed over 500 pounds, but I was ready to do whatever it took to survive. I decided I was going to save my life.

How I Lost It: A big turning point for me was letting go of the past. I had to forgive the people who hurt me, let go of the pain and sadness I felt and make my life priority number one. I started a diet program which consisted of eating 750 calories a day of specific fruits, vegetables and proteins. I was monitored closely by my doctor to make sure I was okay.

I became very dedicated to journaling my food intake and really paid attention to the quality of the food I was eating. I gave up soda, fried foods, ice cream, chips — all those wonderful foods that we think make us feel so good. It was so hard. I often found myself crying, almost mourning the loss of my old friend.

Eventually I started adding exercise into my routine. When I first started, I could walk maybe 10 minutes a day. As I continued to push harder, that increased more and more. I took up tennis, started yoga and eventually tried jogging. Today I work out with a personal trainer who has been an amazing supporter and wonderful friend. He and I have been working together for over a year now, and he has forever changed my life. I resistance train three days a week and have such amazing balance and strength. I am also training to participate in my gym’s indoor triathlon this month.

I still have more to my journey and also have some excess skin from the weight loss to deal with, but I can’t express how lucky I feel to wake up each day and know that I am alive! Three years ago I was thinking about how my family would no longer be burdened by me once I died, and now I’m going to do an indoor triathlon in less than a month! I have an amazing support system of friends and family who have made my success possible, cheering me on every step of the way.

I don’t know many people who get a second chance, and it is my wish to be able to take this wonderful opportunity to reach out and help people realize that it’s never too late to make a change. Yes, it’s hard. This will be a life-long journey for me, but I gave up all those foods I loved for all those years so that I could finally live.                                                                                                                                                                                                                          After Weight: 211 pounds 2012-02-08-hattie2.jpg                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Loss Weight, Nutrition, Pain, Physical exercise, Portion Control, Programs, Serving size, Shopping, Top Weight loss, weight loss, Weight Loss Tips, weight tips,diet, Dieting, dieting programs, Eating, Fitness, Food, Health, Human nutrition,

Gastric Bypass Surgery (Not A Healthy Choice)


US Navy 110511-N-CW427-002 Cmdr. Gordon Wisbac...

I recently received a comment on this subject,so I decided to check it out a bit more. And no matter how hard I looked I could not find anything good to say about it.I am totally against it,I feel this procedure is as unnecessary as it is unhealthy.If your struggling with your weight, I suggest you stick with the basics.Control what you Eat and stay Active. Gastric Bypass Surgery is offered as a weight loss surgery option, for patients looking to dramatically reduce their weight. Weight loss surgery, also known as barbaric surgery, They want us to believe that it will provide the longest period of sustained weight loss in patients who have tried other approaches of diet and exercise without success.But yet they go on to say something about weight loss surgery will only work as well as the amount of time you invest in adopting a healthy and active lifestyle.

What is Gastric Bypass Surgery?

Gastric Bypass surgery, also known as Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB), slows the absorption of food and decreases calorie intake by creating a small stomach pouch. The pouch holds 3 to 5 ounces of food. The remainder of the stomach is not removed, but is completely stapled shut and divided from the stomach pouch.  The outlet from this newly formed pouch empties directly into the middle portion of the small intestine, thus bypassing calorie absorption and the duodenum (the first portion of the small intestine).

Frequently Asked Questions About Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass Surgery

What are some of gastric bypass surgery results?

Restricts Eating: During gastric bypass surgery, a small pouch is created with staples which limits how much you can eat and diminishes appetite.

Decreases Calorie Intake: The intestine is rerouted in such a way that calories are not absorbed in a small segment.

Dumping Syndrome: Another effect of gastric bypass surgery is a condition called dumping syndrome. Because the intestine is re-routed after bariatric surgery, certain foods, such as those high in sugar, are emptied quickly into the intestines. Although this does not happen to everyone after gastric bypass surgery, it is a common side effect causing people to avoid foods with sugar and is generally felt to be a benefit of the surgery and not a complication.

This can’t be Healthy,WHY would anyone want to put themselves through this when there’s no guarantee that it will help you at all.You CAN accomplish the exact same goals with a Well Balanced Healthy Eating Plan,Regular Exercise,and of course Portion Control.  Gastric Bypass Surgery is not a solution, So where is the guarantee,It lies within you. because you’re the one that has to commit yourself to a Healthy Eating Plan, A consistent Regular Exercise Routine,and you are the one that has to practise Disciplined Portion Control.Which is actually one of the hardest yet most important keys to your success along  your weight loss journey. It is important to remember that weight loss surgery, just like any other weight loss program or service you only get out of it, what you put into it.Another words it will only work as well as the amount of time you invest in a healthy and active lifestyle.It’s all up to you,you’re the only one that can guarantee your success just like anything else you have to really want to.I know some of you might be saying it’s not that easy, and your right it’s not that is why you need to practice Discipline.If you follow a realistic Healthy Eating Plan,exercise,watch your Portions,be consistent,and you Discipline yourself when and were needed you can succeed. Here is a link to a store about a man who died a few weeks after having gastric bypass surgery http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2005/01/21/earlyshow/contributors/melindamurphy/main668323.shtml A study from the  University of Washington found that men are more likely to die than women. However, the study also found that if a patient survived more than a year after the surgery, then the benefits to their long-term health far outweigh the risks of the procedure.I don’t know about that.I don’t think the RISK is worth it!                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Loss Weight, diet, Dieting, Weight Loss Tips, weight loss programs, dieting programs, Top Weight loss, Health, Portion Control, Food, Human nutrition, Eating, Nutrition, Physical exercise, Fitness, Programs, Calorie
