    Staying active is one of the best ways to lose weight. Incorporating physical activities into your daily routine is easiest way to do this. A great exercise that can be incorporated into daily activities is taking the stairs. When you are going up a building, skip the elevator and just take the stairs. Walking up stairs is challenging for your muscles, but relatively gentle on your knees (as opposed to walking down stairs which is easy on your muscles but damaging to your knees).

    Too many people believe taking an appetite suppressant like phentermine (also known as Adipex-P) is "cheating". They believe that diet and exercise alone is the "right" way to lose weight. Taking phentermine to lose weight is not cheating. Obesity is a medical condition, just like diabetes or cancer. And just like it's not cheating to use insulin to manage diabetes or to use radiation to manage cancer, it is not cheating to take phentermine. This is not a game, this is your health. Overweight and obese individuals are less healthy than people with normal weight. Overweight people are more likely to have health problems like heart disease and diabetes, and tend to die at younger ages. Phentermine can help people who struggle with their ...Read More

    Don't believe in the celebrity sponsored weight loss pills. Don't believe in the celebrity sponsored weight loss programs. And, don't believe that celebrities that are any more able to diet or exercise than you are. The real secret to behind the "celebrity diets" and "celebrity weight loss plans" is Phentermine (also known as Adipex). Phentermine is what allows the vast majority of celebrities to lose weight and keep it off. They are not superhuman, nor do they know any secrets that you do not (besides maybe how great phentermine is). Celebrities uses phentermine because it is safe and effective. It is not "cheating" to use phentermine to use weight. Obesity is a medical condition, just like diabetes, or cancer. It affects some people and not others. Some ...Read More

    Another new study -- unveiled at the annual meeting of the Endocrine Society -- showed that weight loss from dieting alone will improve insulin sensitivity in people with type II diabetes mellitus by 70%. Add exercise to that and you get a 86% insulin improvement. Unfortunately, weight loss from excising alone (no diet) did not improve insulin sensitivity. The study took place for a year, and the subjects that exercised did so for 4 and 1/2 hours a week. This is just another study that has come out that shows that even with type 2 diabetes things are not hopeless. Type II diabetes is one of the only diseases that can be brought under control by diet and exercise!

    (Image ©Benjamin Earwicker) When you are trying to lose weight, it is important to have friends that are supportive of your weight loss goals. Ideally, they would encourage you to lose weight, and help you when you are discouraged. Any friend that makes you feel guilty or discourages you in anyway is not a friend you can afford to have when you are on a diet or exercise regiment. Be wary of "friends" that will attempt to sabotage your weight loss goals, often by making you feel guilty for not eating high calorie foods with them or making you feel like you cannot possibly lose weight. These fake friends often wield back handed compliments, that make you feel like giving up. If you have ...Read More

    (Image ©greenchild) People frequently eat when they are bored. If there is any more unnecessary way to add calories to your diet, we can't think of one. It is important to keep yourself occupied so you don't eat when you are bored. This is especially important at night, when boredom is at it's peak, food surrounds us, and cravings are particularly strong. Pay attention to your daily routine, and determine when it is, during the day, that you eat because you are bored. Then find an appropriate activity -- that YOU enjoy -- to help pass the time. It can be anything that keeps you away from food: a sport, hobby, taking a drive, exercise, a subscription to Netflix (if it stops you from eating ...Read More

    (Photographer: Michal Zacharzewski) For those of you that don't know, the Nintendo Wii (pictured above, to the left of the TV), the Xbox Kinect, and the Playstation Move are video game systems that are played by moving and jumping around, not by using a controller. While using these devices you'll find yourself sweating and breathing heavily. (Remember: we said to burn calories you require more oxygen to fuel the fires in your muscles!) Our opinion: These devices are not a perfect replacement for "regular" exercise (jogging, biking, swimming, etc.), but they are pretty darn good! The Wii, Kinect, and Move can all be used by children and adults to burn those calories. We're serious about this. If you can fit in "regular" exercise to your routine then please ...Read More

    (Image ©yellow-stock on deviantART) Have you been cheating on your diet and/or exercise regiment? Don't worry it happens to all of us from time to time. The key is not to get discouraged and give up completely. Even the strongest, most dedicated people fall off the wagon for days, weeks, and even months at a time. What really matters is that you don't give up your diet or exercise regiment for good!
