Why It's So Hard To Lose Weight After 50

Why It's So Hard To Lose Weight After 50: If you're like most men and women over 50, you've probably noticed how much easier it has become to gain weight than to lose it... Every year, that number on the scale keeps creeping up a few notches, EVEN IF you're saying "No" to Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and "Yes" to Yoga. So what the heck is going on? Why do your jeans keep getting tighter? Turns out, after you hit your 30's, your metabolism begins to slow down, which means your body is burning almost 200 less calories a day by the time you're 50. As If Your Slowing Metabolism Wasn't Enough... after 30 you also start losing about half a pound of your calorie burning muscle tissue each year (and at 50, that rate doubles!)2... not exactly a recipe for a slim waistline! So what's a concerned "50 something" to do? For most people, it's hard enough to find the motivation to exercise and the discipline to eat healthier... but af…

Health is Wealth: We have been brought up to believe in a certain set of ideas about wellness and disease. These ideas have shaped how we live, how we maintain our health, how we deliver healthcare, and how we die. Those ideas are not only misguided but are also fundamentally false and harmful to your health, finances, and quality of life. Learning the truth can dramatically improve your well-being now— and decades from now—and may well give you added decades to enjoy living.

The medical mythology myths are: - Disease is inevitable as the human body ages, and we all inexorably progress from a state of health and vitality to one of disease and decrepitude. - Disease is a separate state than the state of being in health. - Once you have a disease, you are a fundamentally different being. - Once disease takes hold, it's just a matter of time before it “gets you.” - The progression (or is it regression?) into more and more severe disease and disability is irreversible."

Exercise and Weight Management: Importance & Benefits

Exercise and Weight Management:When you are overweight, you have more fat stored up in your body than is necessary or good for you. You become overweight and flabby when you eat more “high-calorie food” than your body can use. Foods such as fats, sugars, starches, etc., supply the energy your body needs for its work. If you eat more high-calorie foods than is required for your daily work the surplus is stored in the form of fat. Fat is stored under the skin and around the internal organs. Everyone has, or should have some fat on his/her body. However excessive fat storage, particularly about vital organs, impairs physical efficiency and health. Fat makes the heart work harder since each extra pound of body fat requires about one quarter of a mile of blood vessels. It is obvious, therefore, that you cannot acquire the highest level of physical efficiency when you are overweight. The accumulation of fat on your body can be prevented or reduced by eating less high-calorie & high in nutr…

A renowned cardiologist explains how eliminating wheat can IMPROVE your health.

Cardiologist William Davis, MD, started his career repairing damaged hearts through angioplasty and bypass surgeries.

“That’s what I was trained to do, and at first, that’s what I wanted to do,” he explains. But when his own mother died of a heart attack in 1995, despite receiving the best cardiac care, he was forced to face nagging concerns about his profession.

"I’d fix a patient’s heart, only to see him come back with the same problems. It was just a band-aid, with no effort to identify the cause of the disease.”

So he moved his practice toward highly uncharted medical territory
prevention – and spent the next 15 years examining the causes of heart disease in his patients.

The resulting discoveries are revealed in
"Wheat Belly", his New York Times best-selling book, which attributes many of our physical problems, including heart disease, diabetes and obesity, to our consumption of whea…

Should You Eat Dal Rice / Khichdi?

Here's Why Research Now Backs This Protein Mix That Aids Weight Loss And Gut Health.

Did you know dal rice is a dish with complete amino acid profile? Read here to know more benefits of this humble dish.

1. While dal and rice individually lack a few essential amino acids, the combination of the two make for a complete amino acid profile. Rice contains cysteine and methionine, both of which are lacking in lentils. Similarly, lentils contain lysine, the amino acid which grains lack.

2. The joy of eating dal rice is best with a lip-smacking tadka of ghee on it. Not only will ghee make the dish more delicious, it will also help you absorb all nutrients from dal rice and from spices like turmeric and cumin. However, you need to watch for the amount of ghee you use. Celebrity nutritionist Rujuta Diwekar says that you should add as much ghee to your food that enhances (and not kills) the original taste of it.

3. The beauty of dal rice and khichdi is that this simple dish can be prepared…
