How To Look Slim Health Research, Lifestyle

How do I look with this dress? Does this pant make me look fat? Most of us are always asking similar questions to ourselves and to people around us. But are there really some clothes that can make us look fatter or skinnier?
If you are overweight, first of all, do not feel bad about your body. This does not mean that you get a license to eat unhealthy and not workout but your weight and your perception about yourself should not be related. You have to focus on the positive aspects of you: your smile, your eyes, your waist, your legs, etc. Accentuate the positive and disguise the negative.
  • Dress monochromatic, all in one color, top to bottom, no patterns.
  • Avoid bulky sweaters and sweatshirts.
  • Choose clothing all in one color to give yourself a long, lean look.
  • Wear blocks of color that draw the eye away from less-than-perfect areas. Wear a red shell or royal blue jacket, for example, to draw attention away from your legs.
  • Try to avoid shapeless clothing. No one is fooled, and loose clothes often make you appear wider or heavier.
  • Do not use clothes that do not fit. Many women think that if the clothes are tight they will look thinner. This is not true; they will only look fatter, instead. Your clothes have to fit your body; neither oversize nor undersize does the trick.
  • Avoid horizontal stripes. Look for thin vertical and diagonal lines for a fluid look
  • Short heightens are better to avoid clothing with a lot of details. Small, motley patterns or multiple pockets will not likely to help you look taller and slimmer.
  • If you still feel like you need the variety of colors, a sole colored suit may be complimented by a contrast colour jacket, blazer or jumper. But only one item should be chosen.
  • Avoid too-tight pants that cling to your hips and thighs.  Instead, try trousers with comfortable legs and wide cuffs.
  • Wear long necklaces or pendants on a long chain to make your neck look longer. Try to forget about short and tight necklaces since it will shorten your neck visually.

Weight loss The Abs Diet Review

The Abs Diet Review

The Abs diet has an interesting approach to weight loss, but is it a fad? It certainly sounds like one and looks like one from the material they have online. I’m always a little sceptical about information that starts with the words "dear friend". The name and main selling point itself sounds like a late night infomercial with the promise of, not just losing fat, but establishing well defined abdominal muscles in 6 weeks! The marketing of the diet shows pictures of what look like professional models sporting stomaches chiselled with the perfect abs.
Having said this, it does represent a nutritionally sound diet and the success stories do appear to present everyday people with excellent but realistic and healthy results.
Why The Abs diet?
The premise of the diet is in reference to diets that restrict foods and calorie intake. It explains how these types of diets result in failure because the human body works by going into starvation mode when calories are reduced. This means it holds onto fat stores. It's entertaining in its explanation, tracing this biological response to the caveman. The stomach is not only one of the fastest and easiest places for the body to store fat reserves, but also a place that requires the most energy to burn it.
So what can and can't you eat?
Yes, this diet does involve a range of healthy foods that would be recommended by many dieticians. However, there is less of a focus on counting or keeping an eye on calories that many other diets have people do. Instead, the diet pushes a range of foods to be used in a majority of meals that can be eaten in satisfying amounts. They refer to these foods as "super foods" and a diet that consists of these foods will already have a degree of calorie control.
The recommendation of the diet covers all food groups; the name "Abs diet power" is an acronym for the 12 super foods
A lmonds and other nuts
Beans and pulses
Spinach and other green vegetables
Dairy (skim / fat free / low fat)
Instant hot oat cereal
Peanut butter
Olive oil
Wholegrain breads and cereals
Extra protein (whey) powder
Raspberries and other berries
The diet recommends a diet predominately made up of fresh unprocessed produce, as many nasty ingredients are added to processed foods that aren’t conducive to weight loss or a healthy diet in general. Quality protein is pushed so that the diet helps to build muscle and fiber, dietary fats, nuts and seeds are highlighted as valuable inclusions. All of these things are covered well in the 12 super foods.
As with any diet, it strongly discourages artificial trans fats from margarines, shortening, hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup. The more you eat fresh and stay away from processed foods, the more you will avoid these taboo ingredients.
This diet was originally geared towards the male who wanted to shape a lean defined physique. So in addition to the muscle building, fat burning diet, exercise is going to have to play a significant part to obtain the abs promised within just 6 weeks.
The scheduled workouts required by the diet may not be a regime suited to everyone. Much of the workouts require gym equipment or weights at home, so not so easy for everyone to integrate into their lives and not everyone is familiar with correct form. However, this plan was made for just 6 weeks and the goals set are high so a more intense amount of exercise is required. A week of exercises will include a combination of total body strength training (requiring gym equipment) and light cardio. The strength training is the circuit method where all exercises are performed one after another with a short rest in between.
As it was originally made fro men, this diet overall has a lean towards muscle building rather then weight loss. The diet has a healthy nutritional base that a general nutritionist would approve of with the necessary push of quality meat for the muscle building. The exercises too have a very conventional approach to muscle promotion with the strength training. The diet and the light cardio component of the exercise are aimed at burning the fat to reveal the highly defined abdominal muscles as promised

For more weight loss tips or if you have your own weight loss tips that you want to share please go the the weight loss tips thread in the forum

Tip #1
To make a delicious low fat mayonnaise simply combine one teaspoon Dijon mustard or one teaspoon satay sauce with low fat yoghurt.
Tip #2Avoid skipping meals. Eating increases your matabolism, thus skipping meals can 'trick' your body into slowing down its metabolism in an attempt to conserve calories during a period it perceives as a situation where limited fuel is available.
Tip #3
Stuffing vegetables such as capsicum and zucchini with tasty fillings of mince chicken, meat or tuna are easy to do and very healthy and low fat.
Tip #4Pita bread roll ups or wraps with salad fillings, are great for picnics, school lunches or to take to work.
Tip #5Exerise, exercise, exercise! Exercise increases your metabolism and burning off excess fat. When is the best time to exercise? Our metabolism slows down about 8 hours after we wake up, so 30 minutes of exercise in the evening, before dinner will increase your metabolism for about two to three more hours just when it was starting to slow down. This produces a significant increase in fat burned off, even after the exercise is over.
Tip #6Adding alfalfa or mung beans to your salad brings in extra iron.
Tip #7Good cooking and healthy eating begins with learning about nutrition and how to prepare healthy recipes.
Tip #8Plan the week's family menus in advance and just purchase those ingredients at a once weekly shopping trip.
Tip #9Be positive! The more you feel good about yourself the easier and faster it is to lose weight.
Tip #10Learn how to make over family favourite recipes by cutting out fats, salt and sugar. Substitute non fat yoghurt for cream, stir fry minus oil and use herbs and spices instead of salt for flavour.
Tip #11Please consult your doctor before beginning an exercise or weight loss program.
Tip #12Eat slowly and chew each bite completely to decrease your appetite
Tip #13
Eat three small meals and two snacks daily instead of two or three huge meals.

Tip #14
It's a myth that you need oil to stir fry! Use chicken stock instead and cut down on hidden fat.
Tip #15
There is more fat in a plate of toasted muesli than a plate of bacon and eggs! Purchase non-toasted muesli instead.
Tip #16
Avoid removing the skins of fruits and vegetables - most of the nutrients are concentrated just under the skin.
Tip #17
Hot water with a squeeze of lemon before breakfast get the metabolism going for the day, helps prevent constipation and is excellent for the skin.
Tip #18
The best source of vegetable protein is from soya beans or tofu. All legumes provide some protein, so include lentils, lima beans etc into casseroles and soups.
Tip #19
Find a weight loss "buddy," club, or support group. This will help you stay with your weight loss program.
Tip #20Though difficult, try not eating 3 hours or more before bed time.
Tip #21
I cut up a whole watermelon and leave it in the fridge to snack on over a few days. it is sweet, juicy, yummy and filling. it really has helped me because when i go to the fridge looking for something when i see the watermelon it stops me having something more calorie laden. having it handy so that it is just as easy to eat as a biscuit or whatever makes the world of difference. eating at night time is my downfall too. i cant just not eat at night so i allow for it in my daily eating. i have those 97%fat free rice crackers and/or fruit or air popped popcorn. for me i just cant not eat at night time. i find i dont sleep very well if i go from dinner time to breakfast without anything. although we do eat dinner very early (around 5.30) because we like to eat with the kids. i think it is best to know your weaknesses and try to work around them. also, i dont think it can be said too many times - drinking water makes all the difference.

Articals about weight loss

I was horrified when Jan, a 45-year-old math teacher in Los Angeles, told me about the diet she was following. "I'm 5' 3", 198 pounds and still gaining. Right now I'm eating nothing but pineapple, rice, and carrots," she admitted sheepishly. "I've been on every diet, but not for long. I just can't stick with it. But I have to try or soon I'm going to be wider than I am tall. Look at this picture of me drawn by one of my fourth graders." She showed me a crayon drawing of a bowling ball with a little head, arms and legs. It was labeled "Mrs. Bowling Ball."
     "Why do you think you can't stick with a diet?" I asked.
     "I love chocolate too much," she replied. "And I love the taste of ice cream, cake, pie."
     Jan's problem was common. How do you stick to a sensible but strict diet? It has to be sensible; otherwise you'll jeopardize your health. But if it's too strict, there's too much temptation to break the rules. That's where Chitosan comes in handy. It allows you the occasional splurge that helps you stay on the Fat Blocker Program, but minimizes the consequences by preventing your body from absorbing much of the excess fat. The psychological desire for a treat is reconciled with the physiologic need to keep your fat intake low. You can't quite have your cake and eat it too, but you can quench the desire for "forbidden foods" that pushes so many of us off our diets and undoes all of our hard work.
     I told Jan about the Fat Blocker Program. When she tried it, she began losing weight almost immediately and for the first time ever she was able to stick with a diet. "My successes were like a snowball rolling down a hill, getting bigger and bigger. Only I was getting smaller, not bigger. Each month I lost more than the month before. And I could stick to the diet because once a week I could have something like a hot fudge sundae. The Chitosan made it possible for me to eat the foods I love without ballooning up again. Since I wasn't breaking my diet, I didn't feel guilty and I didn't start stuffing myself like I used to. It's been great."
     Then she showed me another picture that she had confis­cated from the "artist" in her fourth grade class. "This time he drew me as a bowling pin, not a bowling ball. That's a lot bet­ter." She laughed. "When I lose 30 more pounds, he probably won't want to draw any more pictures of me. I'll be too normal looking."
     One of the earliest Fat Blocker success stories was Bob, a 45-year-old, 320-pound computer programmer who had been grossly obese for many years. "I had a little belly when I left college," Bob explained, "then love handles, then what I call my belly bib. I call it that because the fat hanging from my belly completely covers my belt and protects it from, well, the ele­ments, I guess."


                          Obesity is one of our nation's foremost health problems and is directly link to numerous other diseases, including heart disease, hypertension and diabetes. In December 2001, the U.S. Surgeon General sounded the alarm, releasing a "Call to Action to Prevent and Decrease Overweight and Obesity." The Call to Action included some frightening obesity statistics:
  • Nearly 40 million American adults are obese
  • The national obesity average jumped from 12% in 1991 to 19.8% in 2000
  • Some 300,000 Americans die from obesity-related diseases every year -- making obesity second only to smoking as a leading cause of premature death in the U.S.
The following statistics are from The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney
Diseases, a branch of the National Institutes of Health:
  • Total number of overweight adults (20-74 years old): Approximately 58 million Americans, or about one-third
  • Obese adult females (20-74 years old): 32 million, as of 1990
  • Obese adult males (20-74 years old): 26 million, as of 1990
  • Percentage of adult American women trying to lose weight at any given time:
  • 35-40 percent
  • Percentage of adult American men trying to lose weight at any given time: 20-24
  • percent
  • Percentage of cardiovascular disease cases related to obesity: Nearly 70 percent
  • Effect of obesity on high blood pressure: More than doubles one's chances of developing high blood pressure
