Winter Weight Gain

December 01, 2014  |  Share

 

It is easy to use winter as an excuse to put on weight, because nobody wants to leave the house when it is snowing and at sub-zero temperatures; plus there are so many delicious, hot meals to feast upon, particularly when it comes to the holidays, that it is very easy to consume more calories than are required. However, there are still ways to stay active and to eat healthily during the winter months; it just takes a little bit more determination and focus.

 

 

Winter can be a depressing time of year, as the nights get longer and the days shorter, as the temperatures drop and the old winter coat is taken out of storage. It can therefore be extremely tempting to turn towards comfort food, particularly for those who have had to trudge through the slushy streets in the freezing cold to get home. It is all too easy to reach for a comforting piece of pie and to slouch on the sofa watching television, when what really is needed is to get active in order to feel re-energized. Exercise is a great way for people to improve their sense of well-being, as it gets the heart pumping and clears the mind. It is a much more effective way for people to feel better about themselves than eating junk food, and has the added bonus of helping to improve fitness levels.

 

It is important for people to monitor what they eat over the winter months so that they do not put on a substantial amount of weight which then has to be lost during the spring. For those whose exercise regime hardly changes throughout the winter months it may be a good idea to eat a little more because the body uses more calories trying to keep itself warm, but for those who find themselves doing less physical activity it is a good idea to restrict the amount of calories consumed, particularly those from refined sugars and fats.

 

When it comes to winter the most important thing is for individuals not to just let their fitness routine completely slide, as it makes it harder to pick up again when spring comes around. A little bit of weight gain is perhaps to be expected, but it is much easier to need to lose a couple of pounds, rather than avoiding the scales until spring comes only to find out that they have to lose considerably more. Some people may prefer to relax their routine a little bit during the winter months, wanting to snuggle up in the warmth. It is obviously the individual's choice how they approach diet and exercise during winter, but they cannot then complain if they do nothing and gain weight.

Maintaining a Healthy Heart

October 03, 2014  |  Share

 

 

The heart has an essential role to play in keeping you alive, as it pumps oxygenated blood and nutrients to your vital organs and removes waste from your body, yet so many people take their heart’s health for granted.

The heart is a muscle that needs to be kept in good condition if your body is to continue to function for many years to come. If you are overweight, eat a poor diet, rarely exercise, lead a stressful life, drink too much and smoke; you are at greater risk of developing serious heart problems that could undermine your quality of life.

 

 

 

 

It is therefore worth looking at ways to improve your lifestyle in order to maintain a healthy heart. You don’t have to transform your entire life overnight; just taking small steps could benefit your heart. Clearly, if you’re overweight it is worth trying to lose a few pounds, since the heavier you are, the harder your heart has to work to pump blood around your body. In order to lose weight you have to make adjustments to your diet to reduce your calorie intake and incorporate exercise into your day to increase your calorie expenditure.

Of course, it is possible to be a healthy weight and still lead an unhealthy lifestyle. Even if you’re slim and have never struggled to control your weight, you may have picked up bad eating habits that could contribute to health problems later down the line. If you eat a lot of fast food, the chances are you will be consuming large quantities of salt and saturated fat, which can increase the likelihood that you will develop cardiovascular disease.

To improve your diet, you should really try to increase the amount of fibrous foods you eat, including foods such as oatmeal, whole grain bread and pasta and leafy green vegetables. You can still enjoy the occasional fast food meal, but if you want to maintain a healthy heart, junk food cannot form the basis of your diet.

 

 

As well as what you eat, it is also worth considering the impact of alcohol on your system, as binge drinking and drinking heavily over a long period of time can be detrimental to your health. However, it is worth noting that not all alcohol is bad for you. Studies have shown that those who drink red wine on a regular basis are at lower risk of developing heart disease. Red wine contains antioxidants, known as polyphenols, which could help to protect the lining of blood vessels in your heart. Resveratrol is one of the polyphenols that has gained attention for its potential to reduce ‘bad’ cholesterol and protect your heart’s health.

 

 

 

Unfortunately, you would have to drink a lot of wine to be able to appreciate the benefits and so it might be worth taking Resveratrol supplements instead. They will enable you to access the potential benefits associated with red wine without the risks associated with heavy drinking.

In order to keep your heart healthy, it is crucial that you do not overlook the role of exercise, as it can enable you to control your weight and also help your heart to become more efficient at pumping blood around your body. Plus, it increases ‘good’ cholesterol and lowers ‘bad’ cholesterol, thus reducing your risk of developing heart disease. 

 

It is well worth taking steps to look after your heart, because although you may seem to be in perfect condition at this moment in time, if you lead an unhealthy lifestyle it will eventually catch up with you. It is therefore better to be proactive right now, rather than waiting until you develop heart problems and have no choice but to change your way of living.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Safely Lose Weight and Increase Lactation

October 03, 2014  |  Share

 

As a new mom, one of your biggest challenges is losing the baby weight.  Medical experts say that the most important time to lose pregnancy weight is the six months following childbirth.  This time can often be the most difficult, as we all know how exhausting it is to care for a newborn. Making time to exercise and eat nutritiously is difficult when you have a newborn to care for, and sometimes your own health can fall low on the priority list. Ultimately, taking care of your body and health will help you be a better mom.  The extra pounds mean your body needs to expend more energy to move around, and requires more rest, something new moms typically don’t have an abundance of. Procrastinating makes it much more difficult to lose the excess pounds later.   Our Postnatal Fat Burner will help you lose weight quickly and, more importantly, safely.

 

 

Our Postnatal Fat Burner is the perfect solution to help new mothers shed those extra pounds and return to their pre-pregnancy weight. Not only will you feel better, but you will be a better care-giver for your new baby. Less body fat means more energy, which equates to a lower sleep requirement. Most new moms have precious little time for sleep, so anything that can maximize your body’s efficiency goes a long way.

Those extra pounds can lead to high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc. Healthy mom = healthy baby. Our Postnatal is not a diet pill; rather, our herbal-based, all-natural supplement contains no dangerous components or caffeine, which can be hazardous to newborns, as it can be passed through to them in breast-milk.  Delta Labs postanatal contains key ingredients which help you to lose your extra pregnancy weight safely, and keep it off.  These all-natural ingredients are:

  • Vitamin B6

Vitamin B6 has multiple health benefits.  Most importantly for new moms, it reduces excess water weight and bloating!

  • White Kidney Bean

White Kidney Bean is a natural carbohydrate blocker, which helps to shed excess pounds.  White kidney beans are a good source of protein and fiber, and help to keep cholesterol and blood sugar low.  Additionally, white kidney beans are a good source of iron, which helps new moms maintain a high energy level throughout the day. 

  • Fenugreek

Fenugreek is one of the world’s oldest medicinal herbs.  Among its many uses is the ability maintain healthy blood sugar and to promote lactation, which is necessary for new moms who may be breast-feeding. 

  • Marshmallow

Marshmallow is also used for lactation purposes.  It increases the production of milk and makes it more filling for infants.  

  • Green Tea

Green tea is a natural thermogenic, which means that it is used to increase the heat in the body, which increases the body’s metabolism and its ability to burn fat.  Green tea can also lower cholesterol, and has the potential to fight cancer and heart disease.  

  • L-Carnitine

L-Carnitine is also a thermogenic; it is used for fat-burning, increasing energy, and can reduce feelings of hunger.  L-Carnitine is also beneficial for breast-feeding. 

  •  CLA

Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) is a naturally occurring free fatty acid that is found in dairy and meat products.  CLA metabolizes stored fats.  

  • Glucomannan

Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fiber and appetite suppressant.  It can also lower cholesterol. 

           

            We understand that your new baby is now the most important thing in your life.  But that doesn’t mean you should neglect yourself, either.  By feeling your best, you will be happier, healthier, and ready to handle the tasks of motherhood.  There is no risk to trying the Post-Natal Fat Burner and your satisfaction is guaranteed.  Now there is no excuse for losing that excess weight and being fitter and healthier.  Let Post-Natal Fat Burner transform your body and life today!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How Green Tea Supplements Can Aid Weight Loss

September 16, 2014  |  Share

 

There is a lot of evidence that suggests green tea does facilitate weight loss, which is a good reason to consider taking a green tea supplement if you’re trying to lose weight.

 


 

 

Although you cannot rely on green tea supplements alone in your quest to lose weight, taking a supplement could help to speed up your metabolism, increase your body’s ability to burn fat and act as an appetite suppressant. Clearly, these properties are useful when you’re trying to lose weight, but only if you also make changes to your eating and exercise habits as well. Green tea supplements may help you to lose weight, but they are not a miracle cure.

In order to lose weight, you have to address your diet, reducing your calorie intake so that you consume fewer calories than you burn. Plus, getting more active will increase your calorie expenditure and thus speed up weight loss. Drinking green tea could also help, since it contains caffeine, which increases thermogenesis – the process whereby calories are burned. As you lose weight, your metabolism can sometimes slow down, but green tea may prevent this, so that your body continues to burn calories at the same level as when you were at your heaviest. Plus, the antioxidants found in green tea that are known as catechins may also increase your metabolic rate.

 

 

It isn’t always feasible to drink green tea throughout the day and, even though green tea contains less caffeine than black tea, if you consume more than five cups daily you could experience some caffeine-induced side effects. These include headaches, difficulty sleeping, nervousness and an irregular heartbeat, which why so many people who want to obtain the benefits of green tea without the potential risks choose to take supplements instead. By taking a supplement, you should still be able to notice that you’re not as hungry and that your progress when losing weight is more consistent than if you were not taking anything.

 

There are other health benefits associated with drinking green tea or taking supplements, aside from losing weight. By consuming green tea regularly, you could reduce your risk of developing a number of different types of cancer; you could lower your cholesterol levels, while improving the ratio of good cholesterol (HDL) to bad cholesterol (LDL); your risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis could be reduced, as could your chances of developing cardiovascular disease; plus your immune function should improve, helping your body to stave off cold and flu.
