A British study shows taking a short, brisk walk can reduce the amount of snacking you do at work. February is Heart Health Month, which makes it a great time for individuals to evaluate their lifestyle and how it may be contributing to or harming their heart’s wellbeing. We Minnesotans are used to the snow and cold of winter, but this season has seemed especially brutal, hasn't it? The below-zero windchills and heavy snow make it feel easier to stay indoors and eat at our desk than to go out or go home for lunch. Dieting can be frustrating when the scale is not showing a decrease in pounds or the weight is not staying off.
Here's another great OPTIFAST success story!In her late twenties, Elizabeth began taking a new medication which caused her to rapidly gain weight.
Researchers have found that people who are overweight have an increased risk of loss in brain volume, which could translate to decreased mental function later in life. If you need a little extra help keeping track of your daily food intake and planning meals, we have some technology suggestions that can help! The habit of snacking appears to be more common now than several decades ago, and it could be affecting people's waistlines. A study found that if you are over the age of 35, drinking two cups of water before every meal is an effective weight management tool.
You may have heard in the news recently that the American Medical Association designated obesity as a disease. Patients and friends have been telling me about using these "milks" for their morning shakes. Are you noshing at lunch in front of your computer? It is interesting to note that, people who eat lunch at in front of a computer are likely to eat more within 30 minutes vs.
Join us this Saturday to discuss the different strategies about what to do in those tough scenarios like eating out whether you are on full fast or modified fast.
Editing this periscope episode from a couple months ago really made me want to get back to doing them. If you’re new to the hCG diet protocol and need more step by step guidance, you can find the basics of the hCG Diet here.
I attempted to copy and paste many of the comments from the live periscope below for those of you who like to read – there’s some fun info in there!
The holiday season is no exception and is actually a great opportunity to show them how much you care. It is easy to make poor food choices when faced with all those sugar-covered treats — especially at Halloween parties.
Also, the food is exposed for a longer period of time to enzymes in your mouth that help break down fat, improving digestion. The Framingham Cohort Study looked at the health of 5,036 people living in the United States. If you are planning a vacation, do you map out the route or program it into your GPS before you get in the car? Croix Orthopaedics, every 15 pounds of excess weight puts 100 pounds more pressure on the body's joints. Be mindful, though, that eating your lunch at your desk can have negative consequences for your diet.When we eat at our desks, we are often distracted by email, phone calls and other interruptions.
They claim this forces the body to use its fat reserves for fuel instead of the carbohydrates quickly available from a pre-workout meal or snack. Focus instead on getting a much more manageable 30 minutes of exercise, five times per week. The problem is that we consume most of our protein at dinner time when we should be eating the most protein during breakfast to start off our day.
The study included a control group, a group of subjects who ate three high-protein meals each day, and a third group who ate high-protein meals six times a day.
We have all been in that situation where we have been invited out to go celebrate a birthday party, anniversary, you name it. They have higher metabolisms, which means they burn more calories in a day, which means they lose more weight per day on hCG, and they also have a different hormone balance make up which also seems likely to play a role.
I believe this is a factor due to the fact that Anti-depressants cause weight gain and that was when I started putting on weight in the beginning, also Depression craves Carbs for the endorphins.
I have actually not maintained a weight except for maybe the first two weeks of round 2 and phase 3. I guess I have to say that I was fortunate that I live alone so before I started I went through my house and disposed of all the food in my cabinets.
I am not sure if you would call this a trick up my sleeve but I found that chewing gum helped stave off hunger between meals. Oh yeah there is a big difference in my life everything I used to eat came out of a box or can. What types of things did you discover when it came to maintenance that did and didn’t work? So you can still enjoy and satisfy your cravings but not to the extent you used to or most people do. Also, are you ever able to indulge in a regular treat, like cake at a party, and still maintain? This is not just a “well see what happens, and ill just try it and see if it fits into my schedule” kind of diet. I really enjoyed being able to answer your questions real time and just talk about things that can effect whether we do well on this protocol or not. I answered many of the questions that you see asked below, and while I didn’t have a lot of time, I tried to throw in some links to some of the information and products discussed during the episode. Not recommending them necessarily, the product links are just there if you want to check out what some others are utilizing while on the protocol. But it’s still completely possible to enjoy yourself at the party, without going overboard on empty calories. Often we consume our meals quickly without thinking about them, enjoying them or even really tasting them. After years of being confined to a wheelchair due to her weight, she was able to reclaim her life. The review found that consuming dairy products was related to increased insulin production, a healthier body weight and decreased body fat.
The carbohydrate is partly from lactose (milk sugar), which is digested differently than sucrose.
I used to try to explain the protocol to them but when I got to the 500 cal part they lost interest. Here are some of the best (and worst) gift ideas for your loved ones working towards a healthier lifestyle. These include irregular sleep patterns and unhealthful diets in addition to extended periods of inactivity.
Not starving myself just still following the eat to hunger philosophy, and also I have decided to not add bread and pasta back into my diet. I had never been a three meal a day person most of the time I would only eat one meal a day but it was not healthy by any means and often I would eat way too much of it.
Now when I get asked I say that I followed the original protocol written by Dr Simeons I point them in the direction of where to find the protocol and give them your website address. Also I know this sounds kinda shallow, but I would look at pictures of women at the weight I want to be to remind me what I am doing this for.
A study in an obesity clinic examined the relationship between knowledge of appropriate foods and beverages needed for weight loss and the actual diet of patients seeking obesity treatment.
After college I looked at the back of the package and OMG they had 38gram of fat, not to mention how many carbs were in them. Working in a hospital sometimes you do not have time to sit down and eat so I used to eat from the vending machines ( Fat Boxes to the British) Now I do not even look in there as I walk by.
I tell them in order to succeed they need to have your whole heart in it the ability to totally commit, and will power to make better food choices in the future. The points were determined but using a sliding scale and it tracked your calories, fat and fiber. Otherwise as long as I did maintenance right, I ALWAYS stayed at my goal weight no matter what I ate, lol well within reason. The study found that although the patients recognized what an appropriate diet plan included, they did not consume an appropriate diet for weight loss. I guess one of the things that I noticed about myself before I started my HCG journey was that I would lose my breath just bending over to tie my shoes.
I can have Smoothies from Sheetz and they do not seem to affect my weight, but while at the beach for the wedding my Mom wanted a milkshake so I thought I need to try to see if that would be a no go or a thumbs up. What was so good about these are that not only were they high in protein but they were also low fat, low calorie and very low carb. The damage had been done, and my body was used too this weight and had set my metabolism at a young age. I am still able to maintain during my craving moments because I can still choose to have it, I just use portion control! Treatment approaches should include tools that help patients implement their nutrition knowledge. I cut my fruit out because it caused me to stall, and changed over to that and it fixed the issue. The next day I had gained a pound and a half, so no milkshakes for Tracy I will stick with the smoothies. Lol I guess it’s safe to say, the hardest part of the diet are the first few days of 500 calories. If I want a candy bar, I will eat one no dought, but they do have smaller candy bars to choose from. Lack of knowledge on this diet leads to stress, and stress leads to discouragement and giving up usually follows.
I have seriously tried my best to stay away from food that will mentally put me over the edge. I handled it by literally saying no to myself to any food that I couldn’t eat, drinking lots and lots of coffee with Stevia since it is a good appetite suppressant, keeping the water coming to help with hunger pains, and removing all temptations out of the kitchen.
Choose a time in your life that’s slow and routine That gives you the ability to totally focus on this life changing diet. I know that your love will last for all time, that your faithfulness is as permanent as the sky. As I started doing HCG I noticed that my sizes were changing kind of oddly from my experience with weight watchers. They come in every possible flavor you could possibly imagine, oreo, chocolate chip cookie dough, Cheesecake, Lemon bars etc. 15: But you, O Lord, are a merciful and loving God, always patient, always kind and faithful. So in order to maintain your weight you still have to follow the points system, calculating everything you eat. Like a cruise or special dance coming up that you want to dress up for and look good, or fit into that perfect dress.
Quest also has protein chips, they do have a bit of carbs in them but still very low, and they are awesome. By the time I dropped out of college due to depression, I had weighted a whopping 210 pounds!
The quest line can be bought online just about anywhere but I discovered out of the ordinary they are cheaper when ordered through Quest Nutrition’s web site. 8: But God has shown us how much he loves us a€“ it was while we were still sinners that Christ died for us!Hebrews 13, vs.
Constantly eating to feel better about my weight, but then continued to pack on the pounds.
Later on I decided to join a ministry in Kansas City, MO and figured out some things in my own personal life. I would come home from work and plop myself in the chair for A? hour or so, wash up, change my clothes and eat dinner. Maybe around 15 pounds at the most, but my body would not let go of any more weight no matter how much I exercised! I can count on my one hand the number of times I played ball with my boy or took my daughter shopping. Then my spiritual counselor who lead inner healing courses for Christian students lost a TON of weight out of no where. I feel sorry for my children for not being there for them and sorry for my wife because she raised the kids pretty much on her own and she did a great job of it.
Everybody on campus started doing this diet., and the transformation I saw in ALL of my friends who did it was incredible! I am sorry for myself also because the moments that I missed with my children can never be recovered.
I thought I was doing my best by beingA a goodA provider but in my older wisdom I know that being a Dad was the most important thing they needed. And back then, there were not a lot of resources on it so I had little knowledge, but enough to do it correctly . I decided to stop there, but as time went on I thought, “ Maybe I can loose more, id it possible”?
Over time I had done the diet a few more times and now, people have a hard time believe I used to weigh what I did. He created us, molded us, watches over our lives, provides for us, and when we die He brings us into His kingdom. It was customary at that time for Rabbis (Jesus was onea€”it meant teacher) when they were among a crowd to say the first verse of a Psalm.
What He most likely was doing was wanting the rest of the people, and us, to say the rest of the Psalm.
Kendall===============================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop June 12, 2010. Lost loves, friends, jobs, disagreements with others, death of relatives, and depression are just some of the reasons we lose pride and hope in one self.
We could go on with this forever so today I am just addressing those qualities in single people.
With single people, it could just be the problem with finding the right a€?someonea€? to love. The delay or loss of a past love (among other things) could send someone spiraling downward into a loss of respect for themselves. Nationally, there are 85.6 unmarried men for every 100 unmarried women and the birthrate is approximately 53% women over men.
They have the a€?TV-ADa€? looks, drugs, drinking, sex, and instant communication (cell and text).
Some people give up on themselves and become self destructive with over eating and drinking or hibernation.
From a mana€™s perspective, if a man is looking for a quick date, sex, or just a temporary girlfriend he will frequent a bar.
If a man is looking for a long term loving relationship or wife, he will look around church, a library (or book store), coffee bars, or social groups. Dona€™t settle on things that go against you conscience whether it is with yourself or a mate.
People with multiple divorces fail in relationships, drinkers are good drinkers, abusers (physical or mentally) are just abusers and players, and cheaters are cheaters. People rarely change and never enter a relationship with the thought that you can later on change that person to your expectations. If a person you care for ever poses this statement ----- A a€? If you want me (or love me) you need to do a€?this or thata€™.a€? ----- then walk away and dona€™t look back. The following religions or faiths consider Jesus as an enlightened spiritual teacher: Jehovaha€™s Witnesses, Mormonism, Unification Church , Christian Science, A? of all Wicca, New Age, Nation of Islam, Bahaa€™i World Faith, Hare Krishna, Hinduism, some of Judaism, and Islam. It is funny that all these listed above recognize him as a great spiritual teacher but do not follow His teachings. The other half of Wicca, Transcendental Meditation, Scientology, and Buddhists either do not mention Him or He is not important to their way of thinking. Genesis Chapter #1 in part of verse 2 says, a€?and the Spirit of God was moving over the watera€?. He won trophies for the best in class in New York State for horseshoes and archery (before compound bows) for several years running. He hunted and fished and always, it seemed, brought back his limit no matter what game, fish, or bird was in season.
He joined the Navy Sea Bees in WW2 and ended up getting drafted in the Marine Corps on an Island in the Pacific during the conflict. The only way there is through His Son Jesus so I accept Him as my Lord and Savior and try my best to follow His ways. A ====================================================== ==============================================Note: If you have not seen the movie "Left Behind" with Kirk Cameron, now would be the time. Well to begin with; this promise from God is only for believers and followers of Jesus Christ.
Paul was talking about believers and inserted the condition of a€?for those who love Goda€?. You see, when you accept Christ as your Lord and Savior and ask for forgiveness and confess to Him your sins --------- you are washed clean with the blood of Christ. However, sometimes you carry the baggage of the memories of those sins in your mind and heart.
This verse in Romans assures you that your guilt is unjustified because God will make it turn out in the end for good. Jesus did not promise that this life would be easy but that He would walk through those troubled times with you. Although it was a good one, it caused me much stress and sometimes aspects of it violated my conscience.
I do believe that God is making this bad thing turn out to be good and I think He has a better job for me in the near future. If you believe in God and love Him and believe in His promise, these too will turn out for the better. And leta€™s not forget that even though what his brothers did was a€?wronga€?, God made it into good when Joseph forgave them and helped them.
His promise does not make wrong right but makes it turn out into something good for his glory, for us believers. We know that Jesus will walk with us through the valley but God will get us to the mountain top when we get through it. I am sure there are many stories out there of how this verse helped many people weather their storms. Kendall============================================================Pastor Pop-Pop July 31, 2010. Do not make for yourselves images of anything in heaven or on earth or in the water under the earth. Do not bow down to any idol or worship it, because I am the Lord your God and I tolerate no rivals. I bring punishment on those who hate me and on their descendants down to the third and fourth generation. It tells us His personality, words, likes, dislikes, rules, commands, pleasures, and all the things he has done. So any god or image of him that does not conform to or match the one described in the Bible (the word of God) is not the God of Israel that we are to worship. Let us be clear that making images of anything is not a violation of the commandment but actually worshiping it as a god.
Some churches within the body of Christ have pictures or statues of saints or even Jesusa€™ mother.
That is not a violation unless the statue (or the person) a€?itselfa€? is being worshiped as a god or the statue is believed to have some sort of power within itself.
Wearing a Jewish star or a cross is also not a violation unless the emblem itself is worshiped. If they are decorations that is OK but if you actually place or believe some hope or faith of luck in them, it is a violation of the commandment. People now seem to create their own god to worship in a€?their own minda€? and not within the scope of the Word of God (the Bible). The one I hear the most is, a€?I am a good person so that is all that is needed to go to Heaven and be saved.a€? That is not what the Bible tells us. Matthew 7:21 (ESV) says, a€?Not everyone who says to me a€?Lord Lord,a€™ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.a€? What is the will of the Father? People go around saying god is this or god is that or that is a€?not what I believe ina€™ but if their beliefs are not in line with the Bible, they are in violation of the first commandment. God is OK with working on a Sunday (or having your place of business open), God is OK with Homosexual and Gay behavior, I dona€™t have to go to church and worship Him, I dona€™t have to give, I dona€™t have to forgive everyone, it is OK to kill unborn babies, He is OK with pagan rituals, I can be rude to people, God did not make the earth a€“ and on and on and on.
The pastor said that this church was saying the Holy Spirit told them this was OK but another church said that the Holy Spirit was against this and yet another one had a different view point from the Holy Spirit. We all violate them in some way or another but that is why Jesus died on the cross to wash us clean in His blood and absolve us of our faults. He scribed it on stone tablets and gave them to Moses on the mountain top to give to His people. That is the translation that she likes to use.===============================================================Thou shall have no other gods before me.
You shall not make for yourself an idol in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.
You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous Goda€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦a€¦.
Leta€™s take one at a time and discuss:We discussed this command last sermon (review if you want to).
Have you ever created another God in your mind or worshiped another god of a different religion or faith? Jesus said that if you even lust in your heart (or mind) for another that you violate this commandment. Covet is defined in the NIV dictionary as: To want for yourself something that belongs to another person. Whether you take it or not, take it and not return it, or just desire it ---- you have violated this commandment. If you believe in Jesus and accept Him as your Lord and Savior, you are forgiven of your sins and you are washed in His blood clean and white as snow.
A Timothy McVey the mastermind on the Oklahoma bombing defied God and declared that he alone was the a€?master of his destinya€?. A ==============================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop August 24, 2010.
Having a good relationship with your spouse, family, friends, or co-workers is usually based on a good two way conversational attitude. To render Him praise and glory through prayer, actions, good deeds, following His laws and commandments, and accepting Jesus as our Lord and Savior. He knows what we need before we ask but He likes to hear it from us also with some praise and worship attached.
Your Mom knows you need food and gives you healthy meals but approaching her and asking for a snack also tells her you would like some cheese doodles too.
Prayers can be from a book, made up by you, from the Bible, or just general conversation between you and God. They can be on your knees by your bed, in Church, or just during every day activities or work.
I try to concentrate not on an earthly or worldly fixture or thing but temporarily close my eyes (not while driving) or look up when I talk to Him. I find one (or a paragraph or verse) that I derive comfort from and say it as a special prayer to the Lord. What can flesh do to me?Psalm 121(NLT): I look up to the mountains-does my help come from there?
Go to a good book store and page through some and see which ones are comfortable for you personally. They are good Bibles but one is paraphrased and one is in a so called modern language that, for me, does not read real well.
I highly recommend The New Living Translation (NLT), The New Century Version (NCV), or the New American Bible (NAB). The first two are used a lot with Contemporary Christian Churches and the third contains extra books as it was designed to meet the needs of Catholic Christians. I also like the Good News Translation (GNT).A It is important that you like it and are comfortable with it.
