I’m sure most of us have seen those great food gourmets such as Emmanuel Stroobant or even Anthony Bourdain performing on TV. But I have one big question that has dumbfounded me for so long. How did they maintain their body size to be so perfectly balance with all the lavish eating? Can you imagine the amount of carbohydrates being consumed unsparingly? I would be fat if I were to eat so much.

There must be some hidden secrets behind their successes in maintaining that fit body. With their tight schedules in broadcasting, I’m sure that paying frequent visits to the gym might not be the sole answer. Could they be on fat burning pills? Hmmm… maybe they have found the best ab workout program for that level of fitness.

Although I’m having a job that is related to food as well, I ought to be as fit as them. I’ll need to put in the extra effort to gain back my confidence by having a greater body. I’m sure I can lose some significant stomach fat and get closer to my goal of having a visible six pack abs appearance.

I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?

With the current El Nino effect in this part of the world causing intense humidity with barely any noticeable breeze, the pool would be the perfect place to cool myself off. I have been doing that a lot recently by soaking myself to the peak each day. It indeed paid off when you have some cool pool furniture around to make life’s a heaven. Can you imagine how relax I was floating above the water while sipping my favorite drink? The wonderful part of the great fun I had was everything was afloat including my water snack buoy. Don’t you think that’s a great way to laze about and yet not having to get out of the pool to get your snack and beverage?

Having the pool furniture to create that ideal and cozy outdoor space have since given me the wonderful pleasure of cooling off and at the same time stayed free from any stress and tension. Instead of incurring more cost for entertainment outdoor, I could have all the enjoyment I want just a few steps away from my home. Moreover, the kickboard float I had made great exercise equipment. I always love to clamp the board between my legs and swim a few rounds as it would help me get the necessary exercise I would need. That’s the best way to utilize as many muscles I have and improve my stamina and overall physique.

I would think my friends would also be interested to join me in this pampered environment. Maybe I would look into getting a black steel charcoal barbecue grill to hold a party as well. I’m sure none of my friends would reject to the idea of having that additional pool furniture. Let’s party everyone!

For medical and social reasons, who does not want to have a perfect sized body to stay healthy and be able to face the public in confidence? The fitter our bodies are, the more resistance they are in against diseases and getting exhausted easily. What more as our ages catch up with us, we are more vulnerable to sickness. Therefore, we should always be in the state of watching our diet by getting the necessary amount of exercise at least few times weekly.

Though regular exercise is recommended for all, we should gradually exercise at a lower level until a level that our bodies can adjust to. Forcing the body to go beyond its limit would strain and injure it, thus you would feel tired all the time. But no everyone has the motivation and consistencies in getting into the habit of exercising. Some would join some weight reduction programs or having their own diet programs. No matter what, do not exert your body. Can you imagine forcing your car engine to travel around the country without resting it?

You could hardly count the amount of weight loss products in the market as there are just too many. Of all that you may have tried out, some may not even work out at all. Thus, more money had been spent unnecessary. It would be better if you would check out some of the weight loss pill reviews through the internet and find out our other consumers had reviewed. After all, you should be aware of what’s the best for your body.

What would you do when are on a diet and you have a forth coming festive season where you would be having a lot of dinners and parties? Would you just sit down there and watch all the delicious food being passed around the table or would you jump in the fun and worry about getting fatter by the end of the celebration? I’m sure you would not miss your Mum’s favorite cooking such as the Lamb Shank nor would you want to miss out her Double Chocolate Cheese Moist Cake.

This is the common question posed by most people on strict diet. To me, it all lies in the controlling power of a person. There’s never a right or a wrong answer to whether a person can consume this dish or that dish. It should be a well balanced and complete diet. A meatless and sugarless diet may not be the ideal choice as it would drain your body of the energy to perform well in your daily activities.

You could still go for your Mum’s home cook food but then you might want to consider reducing the intake of some of the other fatty dishes or sugar rich beverages such as BBQ bacon or Iced Honey Cappuccino. After all, how many times a year would you get to enjoy your Mum’s home cook food when you are already having a family of your own elsewhere?

It’s all within your will power to be self disciplined. If you are having 15 minutes of exercises daily, then go for an extra 10-15 minutes for the next few days. That would help to reduce the weight you have gained. Just make sure that you do not skip the fat burning and diet pill you are on during your eating spree.

BMI or Body Mass Index as many had known is basically a term used by many physicians and researchers in measuring obesity. It uses a mathematical formula that takes into account both a person’s height and weight. The formula is rather simple as BMI equals a person’s weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared. (BMI=kg/m2).

Obesity is a serious health hazard, having the risks of a number of grave medical conditions such as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, gallbladder disease and gallstones, osteoarthritis, gout, sleep apnea and asthma. An obese person would normally have one or more of hidden dangers such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol level, inability to control blood sugar and many more. These dangers may lead to a person’s sudden death without much symptoms or signs.

Moreover, the extra weight of an obese person would exert additional pressures on both their knee, hip and lower back joints and thus slowly wear away their protective cartilage resulting in osteoarthritis. They would have a higher risk in developing gout. Snoring heavily and irregular breathing during sleep are part of sleep apnea, which would cause an obese person to be in fatigue and sleepy most of the time. As a result, many heart related diseases would occur.

Just refer to the chart shown below your height. Use a ruler to draw a horizontal line for your weight and a vertical line for your height. Check out which category you fall into. Are you in the underweight, normal, overweight or obese section? Anyone from the overweight and obese section should seriously consider looking into their health issues. You should get some weight off that body of yours by modes of eating healthy, do more exercises or get some diet pills. Please do it not only for yourself but for the concerns of your loved ones.
