Morgellons Disease Awareness -  Artist and Morgellons sufferer, Ayla, journals her experience with the disease   I'd like to introduce myself, I'm Ayla, a 59year old artist and graphic designer who contracted Morgellons in Jan. We all know that a diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables is ideal for good health.  However, it is not always easy to store fruit and vegetables correctly to prolong their life and keep them fresh for the maximum time. Remember that the time that fresh fruit lasts will vary a lot with the climate, in some areas, fruits that are normally stored at room temperature may need to be stored in the fridge due to high temperatures and vice versa.
Beware of tricks used by supermarkets to make produce look fresher.  Fruit and vegetables are often sprayed with a fine mist of water to appear ‘dewy’ and fresh, and whilst market vegetables may be imperfect to look at, chances are they are actually fresher. Different fruits require different storage techniques to keep them fresh for the longest time possible.  Fruit should be kept unwashed and gently rinsed in cold water before eating, unless they are very dirty, in which case they should be washed carefully and completely dried before storage. In general fruits that are stored in the fridge should be covered in a plastic bag or wrapped in plastic to protect from contamination from other foods and avoid contact with oxygen. Berries also freeze well, but should be places spread out on a tray to freeze initially, to prevent the berries freezing together.  Once they are frozen they can be stored together in a freezer bag.
Grapes: These should be stored in a plastic bag unwashed in the refrigerator crisper and can last around five days. Apples: these can be stored in the refrigerator or in a cool dark place and can last up to four months under the right conditions. Many of the fruits we buy are under ripe, and so require ripening before we can eat them.  This is best done at room temperature. Lemons and limes:  These can absorb flavours from the fridge and last a long time at room temperature anyway. Oranges: These should also be stored at room temperature, and will usually last up to two weeks when ambient temperature isn’t too high. As with fruit, vegetables should be stored unwashed in plastic bags and then rinsed before eating. Corn:  For best results leave corn in husks and eat as soon as possible as even in the crisper, these will only last one to two days. We have all been in the situation when we have a large quantity of fruit or vegetables on our hands that is reaching the end of its days and if left longer will be inedible.  Rather than waste this food, there are numerous ways to use up produce if there is simply too much to eat before it goes off.
Omelettes:  Any vegetable can be thrown into a omelette for a quick, nutritious lunch or dinner.
Ice cream or frozen yogurt:  Ripe fruit is ideal in as an ingredient in a frozen dessert as they give more flavour and add nutritional value. Pickles:  Pickling vegetables is a great way to use up a surplus of stock and the finished product will last for ages. Soups:  Cook up a quick vegetables soup to use up an excess of stock, then freeze to eat as a quick healthy meal later. Frozen vegetables are great to have on hand for a quick nutritious meal and eliminate the worry of using up food that is going to go off. In this article we have gathered 5 exercises which they use your own body’s weight but they can still provide a fat burning and muscle building workout.
These exercises are not the only ‘best’ exercises you can do as there is a plethora of exercises which will deliver good results.
The exercises below are placed in an order in which they could be performed as a little circuit workout and alternate the muscle groups they target.
Push up or press ups as they may also be called, target the muscles on the chest, shoulders, arms, and back. Easier variations include push ups against the wall (if you are really unfit) or the keeping the legs bend (on fours).
Rear leg raises target the muscles at the back of the legs (hamstrings), and buttocks (gluteal). The stick up exercise works the upper back, and shoulder muscles and also those muscles located in the shoulder blades (scapula). There are variations in which you perform the exercise against the wall or lying on the floor. Sticking to a weight loss regime can be a hard job especially if it involves losing the weight in long period of time.
If you slipped out of your goals and had a bit more than you should don’t go back thinking that you have to make up for it.
Do you find yourself slipping up all the time and it is hard to stay on your weight loss goals? Go back to the beginning and think what makes you slip up, what is hard about it and why it doesn’t work. One way to start in motivating yourself is by thinking how much you have achieved so far and concentrate on the positive. If you have hit the dreaded plateau point and you are not sure how to get going again try being more physically active.
It is time to stop being negative about yourself and start loving what you see in the mirror every day. Change that attitude towards to a more positive and loving way, your body is something precious and it does deserve the best you can give to it.
It is all good and well to say you need to lose the weight but it won’t come off by talking. If you leave it to an abstract ‘I am going to start’ it may never happen or there may 100s of excuses why it should be tomorrow. People often have a reason why they slip off their goals or why they find it hard to get back on. There are ways to work around busy lifestyles when ‘dieting’, or opt for weight loss regimes which are flexible and suit your taste and lifestyle rather than strict weight loss plans, or little tricks you can do to cut down on the biscuits and sweets (see also how to control your desire for food).
The Pilates technique was introduced by Joseph Pilates as a form of exercise in America (1926) and ever since they have grown into popularity and are now accepted in their use.
The supporters and developers of different Pilates techniques claim a number of benefits to their name from improving posture and balance to losing weight, and those who use them will vouch that miracles do happen.
Although the different Pilates methods developed can vary in their technique, they are all based in the ‘classic’ technique created by Joseph Pilates.
Research in Pilates in general tends to be of poor quality and has been a controversial subject.
There is very little research which has looked into Pilates in weight loss and is not of high quality. In theory it is a form of physical activity, and as with any kind of physical activity some energy expenditure and some fitness gains will be achieved.
Here is a step-by-step guide on how to lose weight with pilates and generally what you need to have in mind when choosing Pilates for weight loss. Pilates is not the appropriate exercise choice if you are looking to increase calorie expenditure radically or you need to achieve large improvements in aerobic and strength components. For those who are in general inactive and do not exercise at all Pilates will provide a challenge to the muscles and could result in higher energy expenditure (in very simple terms calorie burning). Regulations on Pilates certifications are not strict or very clear cut and a number of instructors may have just completed a weekend course which in some cases does not provide them with the appropriate skills. They could also help with reducing fat deposition in the abdominal and waist area (what some people can refer to as ‘love handles’) and the hips.
This article will look into some basic metabolic principles and how does energy expenditure (calorie burning) work so as to understand better how to lose weight if you have a slow metabolism. In order to understand what ‘slow’ or ‘fast’ metabolism is and how it affects weight gain, we will first explain some basic metabolic principles. The rate in which the cells break food into energy (or simplified the rate in which we burn calories) is the metabolic rate. Each person’s metabolic rate depends on genetics, hereditary factors and amount of lean body mass (i.e. An important thing to understand here is that regulation of energy metabolism and body weight takes place by highly complex systems and is not as simple as ‘slow’ and ‘fast’ metabolism.
A second step is to look into which factors can cause substantial changes in the metabolic regulation and affect the metabolic rate and what makes some people to burn calories slower or faster.
Some of the factors are summarised in table1 below; for the purposes of this article we will concentrate only at the aspects which can cause the metabolism to slow down. Hypothyroidism: in simple words is when the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormones.
There are a number of different conditions and these can range in the way they affect metabolism and weight gain. This could include very low calorie diets, fasting for religious or other purposes, anorexia etc.
During menopause a number of hormonal changes take place some of which influence metabolism.
You could try every trick on the book for metabolism or weight loss but if not appropriate you could actually be harming yourself and worsening a condition.
Any form of physical activity will increase the rate in which we burn calories so you don’t necessarily have to join the gym, simple things such as going for a walk, taking the kids swimming, or cleaning the house can help. These are just guidelines and calorie intake does depend on individual factors such as levels of physical activity, age and body build. There are healthy ways of decreasing calories or increasing energy expenditure instead for losing weight without having to resolve into very low calorie diets. Although in cold weather we do burn more calories, chronic exposure to cold can actually lead into weakening of the immune system and being ill.
Answer: (b) Fried foods often add unwanted inches to the abdominal area as the majority of their calories come from saturated fat.
Answer: (c) Cranberries are specifically helpful in flushing any impurities from the kidneys.
Used in conjunction with resistance trainingor an anaerobic exercise such as weightlifting, you will indeed lose weight in the abdominal area. Answer: (a) Believe it or not, it’s been found that you can eat a small amount of dark chocolate without any adverse effects. If you do not have a personal goal and are unsure how much weight loss to aim for, there are ways to work it out. Below we have summarised some of the methods, most commonly used to classify people according to their weight and body measurements. Regardless of how much weight you want to lose don’t aim in losing more than 1-1.5 kg per week. You may be on your ideal weight or even slightly underweight but you know that there is a bit of a tummy, or an annoying big bottom etc. You may need to lose 200 lbs in order to reach your ideal weight but you don’t particularly want to be America’s next top model. Firstly being obsessed may not be a good place to be, secondly all these numbers are guides and not a setting stone. Here we have summarized the following, body mass index (BMI) measurement, waist-to-hip ratio and waist circumference. For example, you may be within your ideal weight range but you may have a high waist circumference which could indicate a high risk to specific health conditions.
Ideally you can have direct body composition measurements, such as bioelectrical impedance, which can determine the percentage of fat, lean mass, and water in the body.
BMI is a simple way to classify individuals within ranges according to their weight and height. Once you have calculated your current BMI then you can look on the table below to see at which category you are.
Once you have calculated your WHR you can look at the table below to see if you are within a range which increases risk of developing health conditions.
For example if you are on a normal range BMI but have a high WHR you could be looking at losing weight from your abdominal area (belly).
The table below shows the classifications of waist circumference in relation to the health risk. I know that sometimes physician may tell you that you must lose weight for your health but often don’t tell you how or how much. In this article I am going to present 5 foods to avoid while dieting or at least reduce their consumption to a minimum in order to succeed in your weight lost and reach an optimum health. All the following foods can have some harmful effects, so try to avoid all of them and start eating healthier today. Many people who are committed to having a healthy life style have been convinced in believing that processed unfermented soy products are good for health.
Soy contains natural toxins (anti-nutrients) which interfere with enzymes needed for protein digestion.
Moreover, majority of soy on US market is genetically modified (GMO) (European soy should be “GMO  clean”, but there is no guarantee due to contamination through natural pollination). Scientific theories suggest that in nature foods would not normally contain large amounts of fructose. One theory of how this happens suggests that fructose has a greater potential in turning into fat in the liver in comparison to glucose (ordinary sugar). Everybody needs some fat in their diet, however, the chemical structure of fat plays an important role in the way is processed in the body and the health implications it can have. In brief it is suggested by studies that trans fats can cause more health problems than saturated fats. I think, these days, just about everybody is aware about the harmful effects of sugar in both the waistline and health.
In addition, to the high calorific properties of sugar it can also increase health risks such as development of insulin resistance and diabetes. In addition sugar can make insulin to rise in the body sharply and fall sharply which amongst others it can make you feel hungry, irritable, and tired. Moreover, you can replace the morning cereal with a protein based breakfast which can make you feel full for longer and can provide a better insulin response. If you are experiencing any issues or health complaints with any of the above mentioned is always recommended to consult a health professional before making any changes to your diet. Some of the contaminants studies refer to are concentrations of dioxins, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB),3 polybrominated diphenyl ethers, and some pesticides. Some studies have argued that the level of contaminants in farmed salmon depend on the region it has been raised. A solution to the issue could be to aim for either wild salmon or chose farmed salmon which could be less contaminated. In summary the 5 foods to avoid while dieting are: unfermented soy products, fructose, trans-fats, sugar and farmed salmon.

High intensity interval training (HIIT) has been growing in popularity in the past few years. Neither the service provider nor the domain owner maintain any relationship with the advertisers.
A lot of people would be happy to know a handful of exercises which they can do at home and still have the fat burning benefits. I don’t believe in absolute statements such as ‘the very best of exercises’ or ‘the only exercises’.
You can use these in combination to another workout or pick the ones you like and use them with others you may have in your list.
When you are exercising your body will use calories (energy) to fuel the exercise, no matter what exercise it is. In very simple terms, the exercise must place some considerable challenge in your body and muscles in order to ‘build muscle’.
The more muscle mass you have the more calories and fat you will burn even when you’re resting. You can buy ‘special’ skipping ropes but in my opinion any rope which is suitable for your height is fine. Perform for 3 min at the start of your workout to get your muscles and cardiopulmonary systems going, and then for another 5 min at the end. There are a number of variations in performance and when performed on the floor with straight legs then they also work leg tummy and buttocks as stabilisers. Extended legs and toes tacked in to the floor (raise on to your toes), keep your back straight. A good exercise which can offer some relief from upper back stiffness especially if cause from sitting in a desk for a long time.
The first few weeks it is easy to keep motivated especially if you can see the pounds falling off. It is unlikely that one day’s overeating will tip the scales, but if you give up now it will be even harder to start again. Your body keeps adjusting to losing weight and it can slow down in the speed it loses weight. Following a specific diet for a couple of weeks can be easy, but following the same all diet for months can be like a prison sentence and no surprise people want to just escape from it.
I have already mentioned above about re-evaluating your regime and whether it works for you. Plateaus and slowdown can generate a lot of frustration and you can easily give up on your goals. Maybe you have a few or a lot of extra pounds and it could be that you are fed up with the way you look. Losing the extra weight is not about punishing yourself for all the takeaways and binges of the last years but more like looking after ‘you’. Having someone to do it together can provide the drive and the motivation to start again and stick to a weight loss regime. This reason can be different for each one and could range from not being able to resist a chocolate to I haven’t got time to cook. If you want to follow a relatively low calorie diet, and lose a lot of weight fast, but without giving up sweets or chips it may not be possible. In its essence the ‘Pilates method’ is a series of exercises which use the body’s own weight and resistance.
The little research that has been carried out does suggest that Pilates exercises can help to lower the Body Mass Index (BMI)and achieve weight loss. Pilates exercises, especially those for beginners, are a more ‘gentle’ form of exercise and will not result in burning huge amounts of calories.
The apparatus provide resistance, and increase the difficulty of the exercise and in result the effort made to carry out the exercise. If any exercise is not performed properly and to the appropriate difficulty level, it can lead to back injuries, muscle strains, joint and ligament injuries etc. If a muscle becomes more conditioned and works more efficiently it will in return burn fat more efficiently. Results of Pilates on weight loss may be more prominent in terms of losing ‘inces’ in and around the areas conditioned (see previous point) rather than in kilos lost. It could be more suitable for people who to start off can’t sustain heavy or intense exercise or prefer classes rather than gym sessions.
For more radical results in achieving weight loss is best combined with other forms of exercise and physical activity. As with every exercise, for muscular effects to take place it can take approximately 4 weeks. Muscles need an appropriate amount of challenge for fitness gains, and a good fitness professional should be able to provide you with the correct level, program and routine for your individual needs. Firstly metabolism is the combination of processes that take place in the body in order to function and maintain life.
Some of these can affect directly the metabolic rate and others can affect hormones or organs which are involved in metabolic regulation and result in dysfunctional metabolism. One of the effects of hypothyroidism is decreased metabolic rate, and changes in the metabolic regulation. It affects production of some hormones which are involved in metabolic and appetite regulation. Menopause has been associated with low energy expenditure at rest and exercise and increase in central fat deposit and fasting insulin levels. Some scientist will argue that the decrease in the metabolic rate starts as early as 25 years of age. Increase your muscle mass: Probably one of the most important ways of increasing the metabolic rate.
Avoid very low calorie diets: As mentioned above very low calorie diets can decrease the metabolic rate (see table 1).
For a sedentary person who consumes 3000 calories a day is safe to aim reducing the calories within the recommended ranges. Do not skip meals: Delaying having breakfast will actually help in burning more fat as fuel. In other words avoid loads of small meals and snacks (healthy or not) but aim to have all the meals in a day (i.e. Increase protein intake: Some studies have shown that protein does help in increasing the metabolic rate. Caffeine: Caffeine is considered to increase the metabolic rate and the use of fat as fuel. Sleep well: As mentioned earlier sleep deprivation can affect the body’s metabolic processes. Cold: Cold does increase metabolic rate as the body works harder in order to sustain its body temperature. So torturing yourselves with a T-shirt in the snow or with iced baths is definitely not recommended.
Take the following multiple choice quiz and see if you know all there is to know about how to shrink you waistline and keep the inches off. This type of fat is made from animal products and is also known to raise the level of cholesterol in the bloodstream.
Low-fat dairy foods, such as yogurt or skim milk are actually helpful in getting rid of belly fat as they release fat from fat cells in the abdominals and therefore reduce the amount of fat that is absorbed.
Hot peppers of any kind contain capsaicin which increases the capacity for the body to burn calories by as much as five to ten percent.


Combined, all of the above approaches work as they speed up the body’s ability to burn calories and therefore reduce belly fat. Therefore, by simply doubling your fiber intake, how much weight, on average, can you lose in a year?
It’s been shown that if you simply alter your eating habits and include foods that contain more fiber, you will also see a lower number on the bathroom scale. Although crunches are good for toning and strengthening the abdominal area, they will not necessarily reduce the fat. That’s because resistance training causes you to keep burning calories even after you’ve completed your session of exercise. All of the foods listed are rich in fiber and can help you lose weight if consumed in conservative portions.
These methods can help you determine if you are overweight, obese or even within a healthy weight range. Have the weight you feel comfortable with and happy with even if slightly over the line, as long as this does not affect your health.
Don’t get obsessed with numbers such as your weight, your body mass index (see below), calories etc. As mentioned earlier in the case where you need to lose abdominal fat, a healthy balance dietmay be most adequate.
Even 2 people who appear to have the same height do not necessarily mean that they would have the same weight.
Once you have an idea of your body measurements you can start planning on what you need to concentrate on.
This brings us to the point of don’t just look at finding an exact weight goal from day one. It takes about 2 weeks for your body to make long term changes and adapt (this can vary depending on each individual). If your weight loss is for mainly health reasons then it is also advisable to consult an appropriate medical professional. In that matter it is always recommended to advise a medical professional before taking any exercise or diet regime, especially if you there are pre-existing health complaints. I am sure you are familiar with several foods which are detrimental for your health and I may cover some of them, but I hope I will introduce something new for you. Soy is seen as miracle healthy food of 21st century.  The soy industry is a huge business and its popularity and success was the result of a massive investment in marketing. This form of soy is resistant to toxic herbicides Roundup; therefore it is loaded with this toxic pesticide. In other words when you consume fructose it is more likely to be turned into fat and stored than if you were consuming ordinary sugar.
The amount of fructose contained in fruit does not really translate in high amounts unless your diet consists of just fruit. Often people connect saturated fats with health risks and conditions, but if there is one fat to really watch is the trans-fat. They are believed to increase the risk for coronary heart disease and components of the metabolic syndrome.
When it comes to trying to avoid trans fats it can be a mind field as most food labels do not list the amount of trans fats they contain. It does make me sad to say that sugar has to go as I do love cakes, chocolate, sweets, cheesecakes…the list goes on. If your aim is weight loss then sugar is your number 1 enemy and it is definitely one of the foods to avoid while dieting.
In simple words when sugar enters the system, your body produces a hormone called insulin which one of its roles is to signal to the cells to absorb sugar. When the cells are chronically stimulated by insulin they can become kind of insensitive to it which can then lead to what is called insulin resistance and diabetes. A few studies have looked into the level of contaminants contained in farmed salmon and the health risks these can impose. These names may not make much sense for a lot of people; however, the main argument about all these contaminants is mainly that they increase the risk of cancer amongst some other health issues. For example Chilean and South American farmed raised salmon is believed to contain less contaminant than European farmed raised salmon.
In addition, why not try other oily fish which can taste as good and still contain all the necessary nutrients beneficial for health? Diet and exercise aren’t always a practical option because they require so much time and commitment to see results. With this powerful diet pill, you will be able to reach your weight loss goals quickly without any diet or exercise.
Green coffee beans are the same as regular coffee beans, but they aren’t roasted which is what gives traditional coffee beans their dark color. You will only get more frustrated and stressed and that only leads to emotional eating and further weight gain.
Obesity is a rampant evil as a result of improved meals as well as social habits and individuals are definitely paying the cost.
Actually many of us that are rather used to eating way too much discover that it is really difficult to eat in moderation.
Slim Trim PM helps you achieve that goal by suppressing your appetite, and helping you keep your energy up.
Since eating is associated with emotion a lot of the time, the ingredient increases your serotonin helping you feel and sleep better.
CG also helps to manage your stress hormones, and lower cortisol which has been proven to cause weight gain. You can see results almost immediately which is always nice, and the ingredients are scientifically proven to work.
If you are ready to lose weight you don’t have any reason not to try this product, and see for yourself how amazing it is.
While it is true that the birth itself and breastfeeding can help greatly in dropping off the excess pounds, there are still a few pounds that can stay in the body particularly in the stomach. I've been moved to create awareness tools that help educate healthcare practitioners and the public about Morgellons Disease (see Awareness Poster) as well as share what I've learned from this experience.Many of the skin photos in the photo galleries are mine. In case of trademark issues please contact the domain owner directly (contact information can be found in whois). The type of fuel, whether it is fat, sugar or other will depend on the type of exercise, the intensity, the meal consumed before and when and a number of other reasons. However, this doesn’t mean that you should jump to intermediate level when you never exercised before in your life so you get maximum results. The one I usually use to train is a children’s one which I bought from a shop for a couple of dollars.
Keep the elbows tacked in your body and the turning of the rope should come from the wrists. Skipping is more of an aerobic exercise and for maximising the fat you burn it is better if you perform resistance exercises 1st and aerobic exercise at the end. Lay prone on the floor with palms flat on the floor placed slightly wider under your shoulders. However, do consult a doctor if you have any previous complaints in that area and don’t take it for granted that every treatment fits everybody.
As time progress, weight loss can slow down, maybe hit a plateau, hit a few parties, or simply lose interest and perspective. It is common for people to say I had that chocolate at dinner so I will skip supper, or I had a bit extra last night I will eat less today.
Firstly is best to opt for weight loss regimes which promote a healthy balance diet rather than restrictive diets. Physical activity whether is structured exercise or just going for a walk can increase the amount of calories you burn and kick start the weight loss again. However, if you are always negative about your weight you will only make yourself feel bad and struggle through ‘must do’ weight loss diets.
STOT Pilates, modified Pilates APPI technique, contemporary Pilates and so on) using apparatus such as the reformer, with books written about them, and DVDs for people to take home and practice. In theory, it teaches the body how to use its own mechanisms to recruit the ‘core’ muscles throughout the body. However, due to the limited amount of good quality studies available there is no strong scientific evidence to support a statement such as ‘Pilates will lead to weight loss’. Some mat-based techniques tend to use apparatus such as gym balls and thera-bands (resistance elastic bands) which can similarly increase resistance and muscular effort. At a beginners levels exercises may not appear as they provide any muscular benefits or may seem very easy. As with every form with exercise if you have any medical conditions consult a medical professional before starting.
Additionally, it may be more suitable for those who just want a light firming form of exercise to top up their weight loss or just sustain a firm body shape.
Moreover, any gains will depend on the intensity, duration and frequency of the exercise i.e.
Is there such a thing as slow metabolism and if so what can someone do in order to lose weight? The means in which we take in nutrients and deliver energy as required is called metabolic regulation.
However, it must be noted that in the general healthy population these differences are very small and metabolic rate on its own will not necessarily lead to measurable weight changes. Weight gain can be common in hypothyroidism, not only due to the slowing down of the metabolic rate and the hormonal changes but also as a result of other symptoms. It is important to receive the appropriate medical treatment for any medical conditions, as these could have serious implications to health if not treated properly.
In order to lose weight decreasing the calorie intake may be necessary and metabolic rate may show some decrease in order for the body to adapt. For a sedentary person whose calorie intake is within the upper recommended limits then a small decrease up to 500 calories should be sufficient and safe. However, you do need to include carbohydrates as well as very low carbohydrate intake can have negative effects in thyroid hormone production.
However, caffeine is a stimulant and can induce a stress response among other negative effects.
If you are actually one of those people who lose weight when under stress you may be tempted to think that is not a bad thing.
Some people have gone as far to create the ‘cold diets’ in which they recommend to drink iced water and turn the heating off in the winter. Therefore, fried foods are not only bad for your waistline but for the health of your heart as well. Any low-fat dairy product is helpful in lowering the amount of absorbed fat in the abdominal region and therefore reduces any accumulation of fat. Dark chocolate contains monounsaturated fat, which is produced from plants and is an acceptable food to eat provided you consume only a small portion as it’s also dense calorically. Regardless of your score, remember to keep a healthy perspective, which is the best way to lose belly fat. For some people it may be a matter of losing a couple of pounds for others it may be a lot more.
These classifications are only a guide and they do come with their flaws so do use them as they intended; as a guide.
Maybe just eating the right foods, or adding some exercise to firm the areas which bother you could be the answer. Or on the other hand you could be exercising and carrying a lot of muscle which can lead to a high BMI (i.e. WHR is another simple way of categorising individuals’ health risk according to the circumference of their waist and hip. Waist Circumference it is often used to determine overall health risks in relation to the circumference of a person‘s waist. Are you overweight, in a risk of having a lot of abdominal fat, within normal weight range?
This could be just losing a couple of pounds to feel more comfortable in yourself, or losing some inches of your tummy or losing more weight to get within a normal range of weight.
Keep in mind that you did not put on the weight in one day so it is unlikely that you will lose it in one day. A medical professional should provide you with the guidance you need regarding your health and weight. It also contains genes from bacteria that produce a protein which has never been part of the human food supply.
Moreover, some scientists have implicated HFCS as a possible contributor in excess energy consumption (eating too many calories). In addition, studies suggest that trans fats may exacerbate diabetes as they can increase insulin resistance (in simple words the cells resist the effects of insulin and respond slower or not at all). In general is best to try and avoid processed food, fast food, margarines, and deep fried food.
The studies are more or less in agreement that the level of contaminants is higher in farmed salmon than in wild salmon; the question however is what does that mean in terms of health? A lot of these points, as well as the argument of whether the benefits of consuming salmon outweigh the risk, have not been fully explored and answered. Do you struggle to find time to get to the gym and prepare healthy meals after a long and exhausting day at work? Not to mention, purchasing healthy food and a gym membership can get really expensive, really fast.
You don’t need to worry about finding time to get to the gym or giving up the foods you love because this supplement allows you to continue living your life exactly how you want. Taking green coffee beans isn’t the same as drinking coffee because before roasting, coffee beans contain a compound called Chlorogenic Acid which is destroyed after the beans are roasted.
Instead you need to try Regal Trim which will give you even better results, in a shorter amount of time and you don’t have to change or give up anything in your life! The natural ingredients help you lose weight without any side effects without changing your habits. It is always best to train muscles in balance and throughout the body to avoid muscle imbalances and injuries in the long term.
The 3 and 5 min may not seem as much but trust me if you never skipped before (being a child was the last time) you will find that is not as easy.
If that is too hard then just do 4 and try to build on it or go for one of the easier variations and build on it.
When lowering your arm squeeze the shoulder blades together so when your arms have slide down the shoulder blades have gone back into their place.
If you keep dithering about that meal last night, or the party last week and how much you eaten or drank, then you will be spending your energy on things you cannot change. Cycling calories through the days can have a benefit, but torturing or starving yourself to make up for calories will only feel hard and you are likely to give up altogether. Even if a regime worked for a period of time it may be good to re-evaluate and see what you could change, add, remove adapt. Is it to look good on your wedding, or for health reasons, to fit in an outfit or to feel better about yourself?
The first ones tend to allow more freedom in choosing menus and the foods you can eat and so it is harder to feel bored. Planning is a very helpful tool for achieving your goals and it can be your starting point. A very close friend of mine wanted to lose weight but could never stick to it or stay away from temptations until her husband decide to be her weight loss ‘coach’. Make a list of all the things you may think will be affecting you or do affect you in reaching those weight loss goals.

Therefore, it would not be recommended to have large amount of caffeine especially if you are experiencing other day to day stresses.
Chronic stress can have number of implications to health and could actually result in chronic conditions. Foods high in monounsaturated fats are actually good for the abdominals if they are consumed in conservative portions.

Do you just want to go down a couple of dress sizes even if you are still in an overweight range? There is such a thing as losing fat mass but not necessarily translating to pounds but more in inches or sometimes it is not as clear at all. For example you want to lose 10lbs in one month, so you will aim for approximately 2lbs per week. Diet and exercise require a huge time commitment and so much self-discipline that it almost seems like an impossible goal.

However, the length is important, as if it is too short for your height you will be tripping yourself with it. If you are fit and can do a couple of sets or more push up by all means judge it and go for it.
Easier variation includes assuming the plank position with placing your elbows bend under your shoulders and resting your forearms on the floor. Maybe the regime you are following has worked for thousands of people or it was great 2 years ago when you did it but this time it may not be what you need. An example is Mediterranean style diets which tend to include foods from all categories and have a vast amount of recipes and menus.
Some ideas are: start a class like dancing or Pilates, start swimming possibly as a family activity, join a sport or see if there are running groups in your area. Set a day for planning, a day for choosing your regime, a day for getting all ready (shopping, clearing cupboards etc) and a day for starting.
He supported by eating healthy and even went as far as preparing meals and packed lunches for work. Are you too busy, don’t like weight loss diets, or are there too many biscuit tins in work? However, one of the principles in which Pilates exercises are based on is precision and this is for a reason.
Pilates exercises concentrate on the deep and superficial muscles of the abdomen (tummy), back and gluts (hips). In the average healthy person what makes the difference in having a ‘lower’ or ‘faster’ metabolism is muscle mass (more specifically what is called lean body mass which is the muscle mass and organs).
This could help in improving metabolic flexibility which is the ability of the body to adapt easily in utilizing carbohydrates (sugar) and fats as a fuel and transition between them. On the other hand, coffee dehydrates the system and is not a good choice if you want to lose weight in the abdominal area. If you are however borderline underweight or your goals bring you to an underweight range do reconsider. It may be that one week you lose 1lb and one week you lose 3lbs but overall you have reached your monthly goal. Some people can have success but it just isn’t the most practical solution for those with jobs and families they need to take care of. That’s what makes Regal so superior to other weight loss choices, because it is made with all-natural ingredients that are just as effective as they are safe. Those calories will not only be burned off, but some of them will be used for energy so you can feel more energized and motivated during the day.

Below at BodyTrim, we aid you make those healthy and balanced way of life adjustments without it feeling like an ordeal. It’s because protein can give you the muscles that you need to burn fat and it can also fuel your body.


Did you know that cardio training can burn all the calories which can lead you to lose weight? You must work on the various parts of your abdomen and train your upper abs, lower abs and your obliques. Like most, I panicked bought a lot of unnecessary products—some toxic, then managed to pull myself back from the brink of actually hurting myself. You can build different variations as you become more confident, such as alternate legs or cross arms etc. Harder variations include placing your legs on a bench or Swiss ball and also alternating from side with one arm to centre to alternate side. For more motivation tips also read our ‘I want to lose weight but have no motivation’ article.
Carrying out exercises, at the beginning at least, supervised by a certified professional will have the benefit of carrying exercises in the correct technique, keeping safe and working on the appropriate level and routine of exercises.

A dermatologist gave me Ivermectin which caused a Herxheimer (die-off) reaction and many of the black particles I'd been seeing with a scope surfaced. This gave me great relief from the discomfort of what felt like fiberglass embedded in my skin.
You can make your physical body an automatic body fat burner which retains nothing of exactly what you intake as meals and also shed weight quickly.
There were NO fibers visible in my skin in the previous months before taking the medication. Many diet regimens do not take numerous aspects right into account and also often generalise situations. We comprehend that discipline and also staying off convenience food alone is not the solution – you need to acquire to the basics of weight loss which is physical body improvement. Physical body change alters the way you absorb and also absorb your food, thus aiding you keep your weight in control. Within two days of taking the Ivermectin, I watched in horror as fibers started to rise to the surface of my skin. So, allow our BodyTrim professional give you the fundamentals of weight loss as well as assist you accomplish your objectives! That plus coming off the tail-end of the pharmaceutical seemed to stop all the symptoms of itching, biting and crawling for approximately the next 4 months. The only thing that hadn't cleared up was the hyper-sensitivity to my skin which I thought I was stuck with for the rest of my life, an unfortunate consequence of having Morgellons. Had I not been actively using a microscope to look at my skin during this period, I might have presumed I was well.
The skin however, doesn't lie and told a whole other story for under it's surface, fibers and particles were clearly still present—multitudes of them. Early on, I'd heard about the testing that Pam Crane of Morgellons Focus On Health (site no longer active) was championing and felt that it was probably the way to go. My only problem with moving forward was a lack of practitioner, as I felt having the best testing in the world wouldn't mean anything unless someone was up to the task of decoding it's contents into a meaningful protocol, sort of like buying a Cadillac that arrives without the key. I wanted to have a conversation with whatever doctor I was going to see and to hear them speak about their philosophy of healthcare.
Just try to get a physician on the phone before actually making an appointment and you will find it is an impossible task (especially the high-end specialists). She talked about The Great Plains Labs and why the testing used in Functional Medicine is so important for our community. She sounded like she knew how to do her job well and was more than capable, indeed she had impressed me as understanding how to approach the disease in a holistic manner that aligned with my own healthcare philosophies. I believe my first words to her were, "Where do I sign the dotted line?" (While focusonhealth has been taken down, here is another radio show with Nancy speaking with Pam. Let me remind you that I felt fine when I first contacted Nancy, but the emerging fibers showed me I was not.
Nancy forewarned me that treatment would kick up all the initial symptoms I had when first ill with Morgellons, such as itching and stinging and that I might experience more fatigue with die-off, possibly even get lesions although I hadn't had many lesions previously. Within a week and a half of beginning this new protocol all the discomforts she mentioned came back. Black particles began coming out from the skin, sand-like crystals were suddenly pushing from the scalp, I was itchy and uncomfortable but this time around it was at a much lower volume then at onset.
I have experienced some lesions, in the form of 'papercuts' and blood spots appearing on the skin. They were tiny and healed quickly. It took close to 3 months for the symptoms of this detox to disappear, lessening with each week. We added in another few products to my protocol fine-tuning the process. Once all my symptoms had abated I was ready to move on to the next step and do a colon cleanse. I used supplements for one month that gently cleansed the colon (Colon Cleanse by DaVinci Labs??). After that, I began with chelation therapy (Chelex by Xymogen) to remove heavy metals. Nancy has taken me through this journey with constant support through email. The fact that she is able to tell me what I can expect and interpret what I am going through is invaluable. Having gone through the early treatment phases and emerging symptom-free, makes me feel that I did indeed work through something—hopefully clearing biofilm. So where am I right now and what are the changes that happened over these few months of treatment?My skin cleared of many of black particles, although I still have them (my great lament was that I didn't have a camera back when I first got sick, because my skin was so saturated it was alarming!). Actually, I feel spry and 10 years younger than my 55 years of age (at the time this was written), an unexpected and very welcome gift. Still, they are here and I am monitoring them carefully. I am convinced of the value of the Great Plains and Metametrix testing. It just makes sense that one would want to know the particular weaknesses of their body before embarking on a journey of healing. Getting the labwork done and seeing Nancy are the two smartest things I did throughout my ordeal. Morgellons for me is like that impossible teacher I had in my youth. But it has also left me savoring hard-won battles and set me straight on how to live more in balance.
Therefore, I try not to rail against the unfairness of the experience, but to look at how much I learned and the ways in which it has stretched me as a human being. Yes it has been a miserable teacher, but by it's hand I have been become an attentive student.I wish you all full recovery.
AylaWhile I am not comfortable sharing my protocol as it is specific to my lab results, I will outline what I feel are the bare-bones minimum I'd look to take if I were building a protocol.
This would be a good probiotic (I use 3 different kinds throughout the day as was indicated by the results of my testing). FOS, according to Nancy can promote yeast growth so I'd stay away from a probiotic that includes it. I'd include a biofilm buster which breaks down the cellular matrix in the gut that inhibits absorption of necessary nutrients. I used Interfase Plus and Wobenzym at different times (there are different kinds of Wobenzyme. I've used Carlson's liquid D3 which is lipid based, but recently have switched because of assimilation issues with fats to a dry encapsulated D3 (Prothera brand 5,000 I.Us a day). Certain of the B's can become depleted when the body is fighting infection, so a good B-complex seems necessary. Also, Mr. Common Sense and now Clifford Carnicom have written about NAC and it's benefits along with vitamin C in helping quell the symptoms of our condition. I'd look into this as a close friend from the community began taking both high amounts of Vitamin C and NAC and her symptoms disappeared.
She was taking 3,000-5,000 mg of C spread throughout the day and 600 mg 2x's a day of NAC both in the morning and at night.
She eventually reduced it to 2,000 mg of vitamin C and 600 mg of NAC because the NAC was giving her headaches.
The lesser dosage has been fine for keeping her symptoms of crawling, biting and stinging away. When she went off the protocol symptoms came back and when she again resumed, they went away. I might mention, that my protocol has always called for 1000 mg of vitamin C, three times a day.
While I was not on NAC as a separate supplement, it is in another product I take daily ?(Liver Protect by Xymogen).
Nancy has stated that the clients she sees that do this first make themselves much worse and take longer to get better.
If I am going to do this right, I want to know what my baseline toxic load is so I can measure my progress over time. The results arrived right after I finished my third week of chelation. My total toxic representation was OFF the chart with high levels of antimony, silver, cadmium, tin and magnesium. I have a host of other metals as well, they just were at lower levels than those mentioned above.
Once Nancy reviewed my test results and knew how I was responding to the treatment she modified my protocol to include a liver support, and the addition of 3-4 new products that would also help balance me out. I keep an ongoing visual journal using photos which I share with her so she can see any new developments. During chelation I was more tired, needing to take naps and sleep longer on most days. I also had some tiny red spots appear on the skin without breaking through.Red spots appear on the skin. Based on what was going, on Nancy pulled back on the chelation so that the process is even slower and gentler until my body can adapt. Using shea butter and coconut oil mixture as a moisturizer seems to draw fibers and black particles from my skin if left on for 3-4 hours. Most are not readily apparent unless you really look for them. Hair The Morgellons has moved into my hair.
An acupuncturist, pointed out after looking at my hair photos, that there were multiple "hairs" emerging from one follicle. This is probably why my hair feels thicker even though it has been brittle, weak and falling out.
Helicobacter pylori, the bacteria I had with high levels the first time I was tested, is completely gone. There was a new bacteria that showed up on this round of testing that wasn't on the previous.
Nancy feels that this is something that could have morphed, or, could have been present all along, but like peeling an onion back, was hidden under layers. She is adding seven new supplements to my protocol to address adrenal support as sleep has become fitful and I feel somehow too 'plugged in.' Fight or flight mode.
I'll be taking a prebiotic to address the new bacteria as well as some new products from Xymogen to open detox pathways. I'm excited to be moving in a new direction. Every time we do a new test, I see the value of this approach. Randomly throwing supplements at the body without being tested, with the hope that something might work, seems a dangerous practice. Not terrible full-blown itchy, just enough to let me know that I was reinfected or maybe this is an allergic flare-up. This episode might have lasted longer than necessary had I immediately washed all my clothes but I got lazy and didn't wash them for a few days. Was not constantly itchy, but found I'd get itchy at odd intervals, sometimes once a day, sometimes not for days at a time and sometimes for a mere few seconds or so. I am putting a garden in upstate and often have my hands in the soil (without gloves) and have found that I am fine.
The only itching I've got is from the occasional mosquito bite (and yes, these are real mosquitoes).
Now, instead of direct application of GSE I brush my teeth twice, once with toothpaste and once with a clean brush that has two drops of GSE on it. Note that I have been letting my supplements run out in the last few months because I needed a break from taking approx. I wonder if the return to itchiness had something to do with my letting down my guard and not watching my pH. After the first day of swimming, I noticed small circular red blotches appear under the skin of my calves and thought, uh-oh, here comes trouble. I FINALLY have a microscope again (it was replaced after more than 7 months at the manufacturer!).
I had a few breakthrough 'papercut lesions' on the hands which I don't know what to make of. I stopped the Ormus because I wanted to document F-6, which has gotten quite a buzz in the Morgellons community. I still have 1.5 bottles left and intend to take it in a few months feeling I didn't give it a proper shot.
For now, I want to concentrate on doing one therapy at a time, so I can really be sure what each does. October 17, 2011: Began using F-6 and have started a new link documenting that experience including photos showing what is emerging from the skin. I'm going to take it slow with this product as I don't want to have any major herxheimer episodes. Caroline Carter, A healthcare worker that has Morgellons and works with ozone therapy (and who made her Morgellons worse with ozone saunas) said she cannot even be around it anymore. I have since talked with another person that had strong outbreaks from doing an ozone sauna. Ozone therapy is typically great for cancer, AIDS and herpes, but for this disease might make us worse.
There seems to be improvement to the hair which feels stronger and seems to be falling out less. A lot of "debris" is coming up through the skin, fibers, black particles, granules and many more fibers then ever seen before. A week and a half later I ate some quinoa with my lunch and two hours later had 3 oatmeal cookies (oatmeal, walnuts, carob chips, baking soda, vanilla).
This forage into complex carbs was unusual for me.While eating the cookies I started to itch. By the third cookie, I was having full-blown symptoms of itching, stinging and biting sensations (no crawling, thank God!).
The fact that it came on with such force and was related to food, makes me think that Morgellons counts among it's causes a hyper-allergic reaction to food.
In this case, I don't really know what specific ingredient triggered the reaction.By eliminating carbs again, symptoms quieted down. I am noticing flare-ups of the arthritis in my foot which had so improved at the beginning of my treatment (but I kill my feet dancing one night a week, so that could play into this). The ones I can visually see without a scope are bigger then I've had before but there is no increase in the amount I generally see with my scope in the skin.
Will keep you posted of new developments.I've noticed that when it's very hot (93-97 degrees) and my skin is exposed to the air, I have more sensations on my arms. It's not unusual to feel a single pin prick sensation on my left upper arm, often I'll feel the same type of prick mirrored in the same spot on right arm sometime later, as if they were somehow linked.The other day on my bike I felt as if I hot poker were being pressed momentarily to my arm. When I looked down, there were three distinct tract marks in that spot, about a half, to an inch long that hadn't been there before. Since having Morgellons, it feels like the skin is no longer a reliable friend but is capable of erratic changes suddenly.
They took about 5 days to disappear.?September 27, 2012 • Live blood microscopyJust posted a new link with photos of my recent session with Rick Panson, a microbiologist and healthy body coach who did a live blood and dried blood microscopy and gave me additional guidance for my health. It's a bird's eye view into the system, giving a fuller, deeper understanding of what's going on  then just looking at lab results—although lab tests have their place! In the next two weeks I get more testing done so will post those results when in. There were many problems with the blood. We are in a seasonal shift and my fingers have had a few tiny papercut lesions since the change began.Started the protocol Oct. Beginning with one pill a day of capyrilic acid with one pill olive leaf extract and 1 tsp. The L-glutamine is supposed to strengthen the gut lining and prevent leaky gut syndrome caused by the yeast die-off.
Will stay on this for a few days and slowly double the dosage, then determine where to go from there. 16, 2012 Went back to Rick Panson for another live blood analysis and posted the photos under my last blood microscopy. This is encouraging for all of you who wonder how long it will take to knock back candida and even if our protocols are working.
Rick recommended Candex and Nancy told me she loved the product except now they are adding corn to Candex (and it's unknown if it's GMO corn), so she is no longer recommending it.
Adrenal system had a number of markers indicating a lot of stress to the system, very low levels of vitamins C and B's, four different pathogenic bacteria showed up—Helicobacter Pylori was high, Clostridia, E.
Kreb cycle needs support. Heavy metals hair test—all toxic metals were down except arsenic which went up with cadmium.
Lead which was extremely high on my first test showed a considerable decrease as well as silver but lots more chelation ahead. It's been 2 years since I started using supplements to pull the metals out and I think it will take a couple more years of work. The process is slow but steady which is a good thing because I think if the body released too much metal into the system at once there would be negative impact on the health. Nancy pointed out that lead and cadmium are antagonistic to calcium absorption and bone health, so seeing this rise in cadmium and knowing I still have too high levels of lead makes me think that I might have to give up the painting at some point or switch mediums rather than compromise bone health. The heavy metals test also measures "essential and other elements," (minerals) It seems as a consequence of pulling heavy metals out, the minerals have been compromised.
Nancy suggested this organism is a pleomorph moving from bacteria to fungus according to favorable conditions in the body. This is the third time it's changed. Feb 3, 2013 Just an acknowledgment that I just passed my 3rd anniversary since getting sick with Morgellons. The only time I really have symptoms is when I really mess up on diet (itchiness will start) or when ?very overheated and sweating from physical exertion like dancing, where it sometimes feels like needle pinpricks are sticking my skin from the INSIDE out, accompanied by itchiness. Thieves is a great oil for preventing flu or when one is coming down with illness, but I am unclear if it can damage beneficial bacterias. Stopped taking thieves after a few weeks but do still take lemon and added in lemongrass and grapefruit to my daily capsule. Itchiness did not return. September 22, 2013 Decided to go on Stephen Buhners herbal protocol for Lyme disease (crafted from his excellent book, Healing Lyme). Although I tested negative for Lyme and feel fine, I don't trust the traditional testing one gets with their regular MD, and even though I don't think I'm dealing with Lyme, I can't discount the fact that so many Morgellons sufferers also have Borrelia and other co-infections that might be related to our disease which seem to improve with Lyme treatment. Also, his protocol addresses other issues I feel are pertinent to my health (even before Morgellons).
Certainly, I see over time that my immune system is weak, and my gut reaction now to coasting is that it could be an eventual time bomb. I'm taking Cats Claw, Sarsaparilla root (Jamaican—which I grind in my coffee grinder), Eleuthero (Siberian Ginseng), Astragalus, Japanese Knotweed and Andrographis.
To his formula I've added in Ashwagandha and Sweet Cinnamon (from Sri Lanka) for the brain, as well as nettles (excellent herb for trace minerals and general support of system) and Pau D'arco (fungal). I take a quarter level teaspoon of each herb (which is roughly the equivalent of one 00 capsule) added to some water and drink it down. Surprisingly, I did not feel exhausted, although the protocol was pretty intense and caused a lot of flushing through the digestive system. This is not a new symptom and usually happens in the first few weeks of starting any new protocol. As these breakouts have always been so minor and short-lived? (an occasional papercut lesion or what looks like a pin prick), I paid them little mind.
In this case, the skin continued to break open for the duration of treatment and I had some long "scratch" marks come up as well.
It seemed like the last papercut I got was deeper and for the first time I started to worry that perhaps I was giving myself a lesion problem that I might not be able to turn off. This little spot has bothered me on occasion on and off throughout the years of my Morgellons experience, but during the Buhner protocol, it itched almost constantly.
On the plus side, I could tell there was a lot of detoxification going on and all of those bitter herbs were really helpful for quelling sugar cravings. I believe I will revisit this protocol modified in the future, but for now, am taking a rest from it. Note that when I ceased treatment, the papercut and pinprick lesions stopped, although I recently had a three-inch long "scratch" appear on my leg weeks after stopping his treatment some weeks back.
This was a surprise, since problems usually only show up on my hands and 3 inches is rather a statement!For the first time, the scratch resembled images I've seen for Bartonella. There is much about it that I think is helpful, and I encourage people to study these herbs and supplements carefully, and decide for themselves if they want to incorporate them. This is a very difficult protocol and for any who have detoxification pathway issues, this could impact their health negatively. The release of toxins in a system that cannot remove them properly can be deadly, so it is important to not rush carelessly forward with something this strong. I did feel like the protocol helped me on many levels, but I could not tolerate the heart issues with pressure on the chest, burning, and breathing difficulties.
The creator of the protocol feels that Bartonella is at the core of the Morgellons infection, and Bartonella likes to set up shop in the endothelial tissue of the heart.
Thinking this was just a severe Herxheimer reaction, I went back on the protocol but was unable to advance more than one drop of each tincture before heart and breathing issues returned with a vengeance. This time, the heart issues did not abate immediately, and it's been some weeks now in which they often come back on a low level. His original protocol (which he posted on Jenna's blog and which is now removed) did not use MSM, or Silver Sol or various other supplements. It also did not include baking soda, which is not inherently a problem, but at 2 teaspoons a day, might become one.
