Health & Support depression - NOT ed related May 10 2011

A lot of people suffer from chronic depression, myself being one of them. It is so unfortunate for people who never really get help for it. Because from my own experiences, it can ruin your life, mess you up, and make you feel utterly hopeless and alone. I still suffer from it here and there, but I suggest you see a doctor and ask for SSRI/antidepressant. Paxil has worked wonders for me, and believe me I tried every natural thing out there to try to get myself out of my depression, but sometimes you just need to get that extra help for your brain chemistry. Good luck, and feel better.

Fitness Limited time to work out - Cardio or weights? Apr 27 2011

you could either alternate days, which is what a lot of people do. Or if it was me, I would do a 25 minute HIIT cardio session and burn mass fat, and 25 minutes of strength/lifting.

For a year I ate 1300-1500 calories and lost weight, but the weight loss stopped and I plateaued for months. The only reason I got over my plateau was because I exercised way more and ate way more as well. I guess my body loved the fuel I was feeding it and finally reached my goal weight.

i like chips too. go to your grocery store or search around for Popchips. They are completely natural, baked, no bad oils or ingredients and you can eat 28 of them for 120 calories. They come in a bunch of flavors like original, sour cream and onion, bbq, etc and they are absolutely wonderful. better than regular chips. im from ohio and i've found them at target. you could slam an entire bag and only consume 360 calories.

So basically, you didn't read the article.

i did, i just don't agree nor trust the article. i feel people just want an excuse to eat badly honestly. well then why are so many people having heart attacks and are obese and have diabetes? its not because they eat healthy obviously.

Of course they don't eat healthy. They also don't move - they sit in their cars, at their desks, and in front of the tv for 97% of their waking hours.

We can continue to follow the diet advice of the 70s or we can consider that maybe it wasn't entirely based on science and take a look at the new research that is available.

Personal trainers, and Nutrition experts have said time and time again that weight loss is 80% diet, 20% exercise. It really isn't how much you move that makes you healthy, it is what you eat. "You are what you eat"

Yes, I am sure. I would trust doctors and and nutrition experts over a magazine article any day. deep fried food = clogged arteries = heart attack

Hmmm. It is great that you are getting a lot of calcium because it is essential for the growth and maintenance of bones and teeth. But be careful because some dairy products such as cheese and whole milk do contain a significant amount of saturated fat, which can contribute to cardiovascular diseases and of course, weight gain or water retention. Try to choose low fat or fat free dairy products. Mozzarella cheese is a great alternative, being made from part-skim milk.

Fit it into your daily calories and it won't matter.

At least it hasn't for me so far.

Yes. I know that I like to eat at night. And I still lost a lot of weight. I work it into my calorie count for the day. In fact, I count it as one of my 6 small meals. I like to have cereal right before bed. Kashi Go Lean Crunch and skim milk. I go through two boxes a week. :)

I have the same problem, but I know the answer to my insomnia is my caffeine addiction. Do you consume a lot of beverages with caffeine? 

Weight Loss appetite increase at night? Apr 23 2011

I offer this advice to you even though you probably will listen to the others. Don't skip breakfast. It is important. It breaks the long overnight fast, helping you wake up and get going. It stops you from feeling hungry later, and it helps you be more alert throughout the day. It certainly does wake up the metabolism. You need fuel to do things in the morning and throughout the day, otherwise your body will just hold onto fat thinking that you are fasting. It may be debated time again and again, but why do statistics show that people who eat breakfast regularly are healthier and weigh less than those who skip breakfast?

Maybe the reason why you get so hungry at night is because you have been skipping breakfast for so long? I used to do the same thing. Now, I don't binge at night anymore because I've made a routine of eating breakfast. Therefore, I am not so starving and mindlessly eat at night because I have not starved myself.

Weight Loss difference between HIIT and interval training? Apr 22 2011

i got over my plateau by completely changing my diet.. eating more 'clean' than i ever did before, and pushing myself in my work outs. i switched from doing mostly strength training to mostly cardio, and having a higher deficit at the end of the day. i hope this helps.

I was pretty much assuming that healthy eating was already being done, since that is truly the only way to lose weight. exercise alone, no matter how intense or not intense will not help with weight loss, its diet that  truly matters.

I disagree with everyone. Compared to walking for one hour vs. doing intervals for one hour you will likely burn three times the amount of calories and burn fat, stimulate your metabolism as well. If you do high intensity intervals for 20 minutes, it is the most effective though. You will lose weight from doing intervals. You just gotta work that into your deficit and your eating a balanced healthy diet as well.

Weight Loss Is it normal to be so hungry? Apr 22 2011

In my personal opinion, from all the nutrition classes I've taken and from everything I have learned, it isn't the amount of calories that is going to make you to continue to be starving at the end of the day. You could eat 4000 calories and still be hungry. Why? It is the quality and types of food you are putting into your body. Carbohydrates especially. Eating white flour, pasta, rice, white bread, or even whole wheat bread in excessive amounts raises your blood sugar, and makes you hungrier. If you try to eliminate the amount of carbs in your diet or at least decrease it tremendously, over a few days you will not be so hungry all the time. Also, exercise helps to eliminate the hormone of grehlin, which stimulates hunger. Try to decrease the amount of carbs, keeping your calorie count at 1800 or whatever you decided you want it to be, fill your diet with more protein and veggies. Fruits are a carbohydrate, but a good one so no need to decrease that amount, increase it if you can. And adding a bit of exercise, at least 30 minutes of heart pounding exercise every day and you won't be so hungry all the time.

I don't believe in mercury poisoning. LOL. Never met anyone who had it or heard of anyone either.  Nutrition experts and Personal trainers say to eat fish everyday for optimal health. I trust them.
