Resveratrol and Weight Loss

Friday, August 27, 2010


Resveratrol Antioxidants and Weight Loss: A Good Pairing?The golden rule in weight loss is pretty simple: take in fewer calories than you expend in exercise. However, as any dieter will tell you, it’s far from easy. Americans spend billions of dollars a year on weight loss supplements, exercise programs and other diet aids—and still we can’t seem to win the battle of the bulge—even when we get desperate enough to try risky surgery or fad diets.Recently a new product has come to light that may help people trying to lose weight stay on the healthy end of the spectrum: Resveratrol Select, which is unlike many diet supplements in that it uses a combination of natural and herbal ingredients designed to help the body stay healthy while losing weight.
 
How? By mimicking certain aspects of the Mediterranean diet.Studies have shown that part of America’s war with weight lies in the uniquely modern American combination of stressful lifestyle and fast-food consumption, and that the Mediterranean diet and lifestyle seem to be more conducive to healthier weight levels and longevity. In fact, much as been made on the news in recent months of the purported “French Paradox,” (how the French eat a high-fat diet, enjoy rich desserts, drink wine and still have better cardiovascular health than the rest of us). One of the biggest differences between the American and French diet seems to be the wine consumption, and red wine (a staple on most Mediterranean tables) contains one of nature’s most powerful antioxidants, resveratrol, which is a key ingredient in Resveratrol Select.
 
In addition to wine, resveratrol is also found in grape skins, blueberries, cranberries and other plants, and recent animal and in vitro studies indicate that it can have a positive effect on helping to maintain healthy cholesterol levels, supporting insulin health and optimizing metabolic and immune pathways that protect cells and improve mitochondrial function. * And one capsule of Resveratrol Select includes as much resveratrol as 200 glasses of wine—without the added calories that alcohol can add to the waistline.But consuming resveratrol alone isn’t enough to help with weight loss—so the manufacturers of Resveratrol Select also added a different type of antioxidant, Green Tea Extract (EGCG), which could make a big difference. Over time, green tea consumption helps increase metabolism, burn fat and reduce fat storage due to its caffeine and L-theanin content, which can be pivotal in helping to maintain energy for exercise. 
 
*Resveratrol Select combines these two powerful antioxidants with yet another energy boosting ingredient, Chromium, a niacin-based mineral that plays an important role in how the body uses insulin to burn sugars, carbohydrates, fats, and proteins for energy.*Although relatively new to the market, Resveratrol Select seems to be making a big splash, and many people are taking advantage of the free trial offer to see how well the product works for them. The trial offer also includes two bonus tools to help with weight loss: an e-book with over 70 weight loss tips, and a weight loss visualization audio.
 
Of course, consuming fewer calories while burning more is the most efficient form of weight loss, and it’s always a good idea to inform your doctor before taking a weight loss supplement, but this new combination herbal supplement is worth a look for those concerned about maintaining good health while losing weight.

Hearing Loss on the Rise in Teens

Friday, August 20, 2010

Your teenager might not be practicing selective hearing loss when you tell him to take out the trash—it could be the real thing. According to a new study in this week’s Journal of the American Medical Association, significantly more adolescents have hearing loss now compared to 15 years ago. When Josef Shargorodsky, M.D., M.P.H., of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and his colleagues combed through the data from two national health surveys, they found that hearing loss had increased by nearly 30 percent in people aged 12-19 over approximately the last ten years. While about 1 in 7 teens had hearing loss between 1988 and 1994 (the dates of the first study), the number jumped to between 1 in 5 between 2005-2006 (the dates f the later survey).

The natural assumption is to point fingers at personal listening devices, like iPods, but the researchers say that that may not be the case. In fact, other data suggests that teens from the late 80s and 90s reported similar amounts of noise exposure as those from 2005-2006.

The results of the study did not find a clear cause for the rise in hearing loss, says study co-author Gary C. Curhan, M.D., Sc.D. “This is the type of study that generates important questions,” he continues. “It underscores the need for further investigation that will help us better understand this increase in hearing loss and hopefully encourage efforts towards hearing preservation.”

10 Most Common Bulking Mistakes

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

1) Not Eating Enough

First off, I have to say that women tend to fall victim to this mistake a lot more than men. The reason behind this is that women hate putting on weight and after looking so good on stage the last thing that they want to do is put on FAT. So they continue to eat like they are still dieting. The result is they don’t have the energy to make any new gains or improvements to their body and, in many cases, lose muscle mass.  The off season is the time of year a person makes 95% of their improvements to their physique.
Without the energy and the fuel, via a surplus of healthy clean food, you can not make the improvements you need. Make sure that you are eating enough calories to enable you to make those improvements and show up better next time you step on stage. Though you might put on a little (note I said a little) body fat, the body fat will come off once you diet down for your next show.

2) Not Eating Enough Healthy Clean Foods

What is the first thing you do after you step off the stage with all of your trophies (let’s be optimistic)? You go directly to your favorite restaurant, or fast food place, and EAT.  Granted, it is fine to indulge in good food after the show is over. You earned it. However, don’t let a fast food frenzy spill into your off season diet. Now, above I talked about taking in enough calories so you can put on good size in the off season.
You might say ‘fast food and junk food are calorie dense so why not have them once or twice a day so I can bump up my overall calories?”  While you want to have excess calories while bulking, the majority of those calories should be from clean healthy foods: lean cuts of meat, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats.  The off season is the time to put on size but the majority of it should be muscle, not fat. A diet riddled with junk food will result in little muscle gain and plenty of fat storage. Clean it up and you beef it up!

3) Staying away from Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates are a very important part of the off season diet and a great energy source, if used properly throughout the day. Simple carbohydrates (i.e., fast digesting) are great to have post-workout because they spike your insulin level and drive the glycogen into your muscles. They also help to drive the amino acids from your protein shake, that you should have post-workout, with that simple carbohydrate to aid in protein synthesis (i.e., muscle building). Complex carbohydrates provide a more prolonged energy source and are great to have for breakfast or later in the day. Examples of complex carbohydrates are oats, brown rice and sweet potatoes. Examples of simple carbohydrates are sugars, white bread and pasta.

4) No Cardio

This is a huge mistake that I see all the time and 99% of the time men fall victim to the no cardio approach in the off season. They justify it by saying “I don’t want to lose any size”. Well, I am here to tell you that three 30 minute cardio sessions a week will do wonders for your bulking phase. By incorporating a cardio routine into your workout program, your appetite will go through the roof, which will make it a lot easier to eat clean healthy food.
You also will improve your cardiovascular system, which is critical when lifting heavy. I have seen countless guys fail to reach their desired rep range because their cardiovascular system failed on them. They were strong enough to get those extra 2 reps but were too out of breath and had to rack the weight. Sooner or later you will start losing muscle if you don’t reach your desired rep range. If you want to put on that size start, then start doing some cardio.

5) Too Much Cardio

Ladies, this is where many of you slip up. You don’t want to put on those couple of extra pounds so you stick to your contest prep cardio program. Your body cannot make improvements in muscle size and shape if you are expending too much energy with cardio. Most people (guys and gals) should stick to a moderate cardio program like 3-4 low intensity 20-30 minute sessions a week. This will keep both your metabolism humming and your appetite up and, most importantly you will be working the heart, which is the most important muscle of all.

6) Too Much Machine Use

Too many trainers rely too heavily on machine use in their workout programs. With all the new fancy machines out now, who can blame them? They are comfortable, smooth and easy to use. But I have the motto “nothing in weight lifting is easy”. These machines do have benefits, when used properly and are great to supplement your program (I like to use them at the end of the workout, if I use them at all) but nothing works better than free weight basics.
Free weight basics, with barbells and dumbbells, like squats, deadlifts, rows, bench etc., should be the bread and butter of all of your workouts off season and pre-contest. They recruit the most muscle fiber use which will lead to maximum growth and improvement. Only after you have exhausted maximum energy with the free weight basics, should you think about using machines or cables. Remember, the harder you work, the better the results and nothing is harder than free weights.

7) Not Enough Rest/ Recovery Time

In the off-season, your major goal is to put on lean muscle mass. Many novice trainers don’t realize that you do all your growing outside the gym. Even some experienced lifters find it hard to stay away from the gym in the off season. They do everything right: eat clean, workout out hard, but forget to give their body’s enough rest and recovery time between workouts so gains are negligible. You break down the muscle tissue in the gym, given that you fuel your body with nutritious food.
The final piece of the puzzle is time. You need to give your body time to recover. Without adequate time to recover, you will break down already broken down muscle tissue caused by over training. There is a lot of debate over how long a muscle needs to rest/recover from a workout before you should work it out again. I am a big believer in 72 hours, or 3 days of recovery time. If the muscle still seems to be sore, give it another day of rest. The last thing you want to do is to injure yourself.

8) Scale

Worrying about the scale has caused a lot of men to put on fat in the off season. Men love stating how much they weigh, if the number is above 200 lbs. So in their pursuit to put on as much weight as possible, most of these ego driven males end up putting on a substantial amount of body fat. Your body cannot continue to add pounds of lean muscle mass each week, so if your weight continues to increase every week, you are probably putting on too much body fat. I tell my clients to focus on what they look like, not on what the scale says.
Women are the complete opposite once they see their weight go up; they either stop eating as much or do a lot of cardio. This shift is driven by the pursuit to keep in contest shape. However, this practice will make it extremely difficult to make improvements.

9) Lack of a Goal

This issue is for my competing athletes and starts immediately after your contest is over. You should talk to the judges about your presentation to help you understand where you can improve and what your strong points are.  Then, in the next week or so, sit down with your personal trainer and discuss how you are going to approach the off season and make the improvements to your physique.
I see many competitors, pros and amateurs alike, who show up every year looking the same. These individuals don’t improve and also don’t win. Judges take notice of competitors who improve on weak points and they will reward you with a higher placing. So in the beginning of the off season, make some short and long term goals for yourself; this will help keep you focused on the improvements that you need to make between competitions.

10) Skipping Meals:

This is a common mistake made by the hard gainers. They are not hungry so they either push back the meal by an hour, or worse, just skip it all together.  This is a big mistake.  Your body needs protein every 2.5-3 hours so your muscles can have a steady stream of available amino acids. You need to keep your body in a positive nitrogen balance. When your body doesn’t have enough amino acids, it goes to your muscles to find them.

Quit Smoking Pill – An Effective Way To Reach Your Goal


Quit Smoking Pill – An Effective Way To Reach Your GoalThere are many, many ways out there that would help you in your fight against the habit of smoking. Each method has its own plus and minus points and the success of your endeavor will always depend on your ability to find the method that suits your requirements best. Among the well-received aids available today is the quit smoking pill. 

Why Is The Quit Smoking Pill So Popular?The popularity of the quit smoking pill is mostly owed to the perception of the people that it offers a short cut to a difficult and troublesome trip. In this case all they have to do to ensure that they drop the habit is pop some pills in their mouth every day. Most people like this simple approach; more so when the method is indeed effective.

How Does The Quit Smoking Pill Work?This method attacks the most important of all aspects of the quit smoking process, i.e. the withdrawal symptoms.  Reports say that the reason why there are so many failures in taking the process to its logical end is that people cannot withstand the withdrawal symptoms and they are not prepared for it. The quit smoking pill negates the withdrawal effects and at the same time simulates the same feeling that the smoker would experience when they smoke. This dual effect ensures that the person stays committed to their goal for as long as it is needed to kick off the habit completely.

Though the quit smoking pill does not have any particular side effects, it is highly recommended that you consult and inform a doctor when you are using it. While it fights the more dangerous and troublesome withdrawal symptoms, it sometimes causes sleeplessness. This is not serious and would disappear without any outside intervention in the course of two-three days. In the meantime, the other symptoms would be gradually reduced to tolerable levels improving the success rate with every day that passes.

Beware Of Contraindications Of The Quit Smoking Pill As with any medication, this pill too has some contraindications. This is why it is best that you consult a doctor before and during the treatment. The drug is not suitable for people suffering from the following problems – respiratory disorders such as bronchitis, asthma, etc and eating disorders such as bulimia and anorexia. There are also some medications that would interfere with its efficacy.

Maca Increases Libido

Friday, August 13, 2010

Historical or traditional use (may or may not be supported by scientific studies) Maca root has been an important food for the native people in the Andes of Peru, including the Incas, for at least 2,000 years.1 It is eaten baked, dried, mixed with milk, or in a variety of other forms and dishes. It is also traditionally believed to enhance strength, endurance, libido, and fertility.

Active constituents: Maca contains substantial quantities of protein, fat, fiber, and minerals including iron, which also contribute to its nutritional value. It also contains glucosinolates, the strong-smelling compounds that are responsible for the pungent smell and taste of mustard family plants. Neither these nor any other constituents in maca have definitively been shown to contribute to its actions.

Preliminary studies have shown that maca can increase libido in healthy men. It does this without influencing levels of testosterone or any other sex hormones. Healthy men who take maca have also been shown to have increased semen volume, increased sperm counts, and enhanced sperm motility.

Numerous animal studies show that maca extracts can increase sex drive and improve fertility. Other studies support that it can relieve the negative effects of stress reactions. The red cultivar, though not the black or cream, also reduced enlarged prostates in rats.

How to Stop Smoking in a Second

Tuesday, August 10, 2010


Cold turkey, stop smoking classes, nicotine patches, nicotine gums- people have been trying to help these smokers quit their habit and change their lifestyles. But are these alternative solutions really effective? Do they even work at all? These regimens may all seem relative to many because success can be defined by thousands of standards.In the real setting, these quit smoking programs are considered to be having minimal effect on the people that signed up for it. In another perspective though, it does not necessarily mean that they should be snubbed and not tried at all. 

A smoker’s main mentor in order for him to quit his smoking habits is none other than himself. Unless he tells himself that he can do it and that he will stick to his regimen, nobody else can help him. The success of any treatment depends on the person involved. There are those who say that smoking is an addiction and that it is a hard habit to break. But as said earlier, the smoker should be the one to decide whether or not he would quit. His confidence regarding this matter is the main stepping stone of the whole treatment. Once he makes a firm decision that he will commit himself to quitting then he won’t have such a hard time when the program starts. The main ingredient of cigarettes is nicotine which is a chemical that elevates the person’s mood, lessens the user’s anxiety and makes the person more alert. 

But like every abused substance, too much would cause the user’s bodily functions to be altered. If addiction occurs, quitting will be a problem and withdrawal symptoms will occur. Their brain would crave for nicotine and cause irritability and his focus of concentration would be hard to establish. This is why a smoker’s firm resolve to quit is essential in any program that he enlists in. 

There are a lot of groups and courses of treatment that would help a smoker to quit. Some may cost you nothing at all while some will squeeze your wallet dry. Expensive programs do not assure total renouncement of the smoking habit. It depends on the smoker and if the treatment plan is well suited for him. Always check out the program before signing up for it to get the most of your time and money. Ask yourself if you see its courses beneficial to you and if the programs suits you well. Check for the staff’s credentials to determine if they are well trained and qualified. Just remember that if you see a program promising you everything that you wanted to hear and you think that it is too good to be true, then it probably is and search for another program.

Breast Enhancement Surgery

Friday, August 6, 2010

Breast enlargement surgery, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), was the fourth most popular invasive surgical procedure among cosmetic plastic surgeries performed in 2000. In a press release dated July 12, 2001, the ASPS says that breast augmentation was performed on 212,500 women last year.

Meanwhile, millions of women have been subjected to the ill effects of these modern day vanity contraptions that were bought in good faith.

Remember!!

Silicone gel implants were banned in 1992 by FDA.

If you have (or had) a ruptured silicone breast implant, you will be denied Health Insurance Coverage.

Saline-filled implants tend to have a higher rate of leaking and deflation than silicone gel implants, which means more frequent surgery to replace them.

In a study published in the Lancet medical journal, Dr Lori Brown of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says: "There is emerging consensus that both the incidence and prevalence of breast-implant rupture are much higher than previously suspected."

21% overall increase in cancers for women with implants, compared to women of the same age in the general population.

Implant patients were three times as likely to die from lung cancer, emphysema and pneumonia as other plastic surgery patients.The study is based on medical records and death certificates of almost 8,000 women with breast implants, including silicone gel implants and saline implants, and more than 2,000 other plastic surgery patients. ( National Cancer Institute (NCI), Boston University, Abt Associates, and the Food and Drug Administration, with Dr. Louise Brinton from NCI as lead author. )

Fact vs. Faction About Muscle

Wednesday, August 4, 2010


The guy lifting beside you looks like he should write the book on muscle. Talks like it, too. He's worked out since the seventh grade, he played D-1 football, and he's big.

But that doesn't mean he knows what he's talking about. Starting now, ignore him.

The gym is infested with bad information. Lies that start with well-intentioned gym teachers trickle down to students who become coaches, trainers, or know-it-all gym-rat preachers. Lies morph into myths that endure because we don't ask questions, for fear of looking stupid.

Scientists, on the other hand, gladly look stupid--that's why they're so darn smart. Plus, they have cool human-performance laboratories where they can prove or disprove theories and myths.

Here's what top exercise scientists and expert trainers have to say about the crap that's passed around in gyms. Listen up and learn. Then go ahead, question it.

Myth #1
Lifting incredibly slowly builds incredibly big muscles.
Lifting super slowly produces superlong workouts--and that's it. University of Alabama researchers recently studied two groups of lifters doing a 29-minute workout. One group performed exercises using a 5-second up phase and a 10-second down phase, the other a more traditional approach of 1 second up and 1 second down. The faster group burned 71 percent more calories and lifted 250 percent more weight than the superslow lifters.

The real expert says: "The best increases in strength are achieved by doing the up phase as rapidly as possible," says Gary Hunter, Ph.D., C.S.C.S., the lead study author. "Lower the weight more slowly and under control." There's greater potential for growth during the lowering phase, and when you lower with control, there's less chance of injury.

Myth #2
If you eat more protein, you'll build more muscle.
To a point, sure. But put down the shake for a sec. Protein promotes the muscle-building process, called protein synthesis, "but you don't need exorbitant amounts to do this," says John Ivy, Ph.D., coauthor of Nutrient Timing.

If you're working out hard, consuming more than 0.9 to 1.25 grams of protein per pound of body weight is a waste. Excess protein breaks down into amino acids and nitrogen, which are either excreted or converted into carbohydrates and stored.

The real expert says: More important is when you consume protein, and that you have the right balance of carbohydrates with it. Have a postworkout shake of three parts carbohydrates and one part protein.

Eat a meal several hours later, and then reverse that ratio in your snack after another few hours, says Ivy. "This will keep protein synthesis going by maintaining high amino acid concentrations in the blood."

Lists Eye Creams as “Must Have” for Men


There is a reason eye creams have shot to the forefront of the most purchased anti aging skin care products:  they work wonders at helping people look younger.  Whether you are a long time reader of our eye cream research blog or a new visitor to the site, it’s important you grasp just exactly what impact eye creams have on your face as you age.

In a Fox News article, a report listed eye creams as one of the TOP 10 Products Every Man Should Own.  When you see other items in the report such as “multivitamins,” you know it’s a serious list of products.  Here is a breakdown of what Fox reported in their top ten list, as well as some comments on what they had to say about eye creams.

-Scalp stimulant/hair revitalizer

-Multivitamins

-Exfoliant

-High-quality razor and shaving cream

-  Eye Cream

Here is what Fox’s report said about  “Why it fights the aging process.”
Eye cream is designed to hydrate and deliver nutrients to the sensitive, thin skin around your eyes, where wrinkles often first appear. Top products either plump up skin to minimize the appearance of any fine lines you presently have or target the cell turnover process to slow the formation of future wrinkles.

How to use it: Use an eye cream twice daily — once in the morning and again before bed. A light touch is needed when applying this product as stretching out your skin will encourage wrinkles rather than get rid of them. Dab on eye cream by moving in semicircles toward your nose underneath your eye and on your lids. Store this stuff in the fridge if you also want to depuff under-eye bags and wake up tired eyes.

The list rounds out with an antioxidant moisturizer, a good re-usable water bottle,  great mattress, sunscreen, and weights/exercise equipment.  Sounds like a lot of stuff that most men do have, sans the skin care products.

The bottom line is that “looking young” is “in,” and everyone from celebrities to major men’s web portals like AskMen.com know that.  It’s good to see that a serious top ten list was released, and not the stress is on taking care of one’s self.  If you count the razor & shaving cream as skin-related products, you have five of the ten products coming from the skin care niche.

By the way, all you men out there, a woman wrote that article, so you can see that women are once again suggesting that good skin is what they want in their man!

Hemorrhoids care

12. Use natural or herbal plant extracts, which aid the natural cure for hemorrhoidsHemorrhoids care and curative measures-If there is only mild discomfort, the doctor may suggest over-the-counter creams, ointments or pads. 

These contain witch hazel or a topical anti-inflammatory agent containing hydrocortisone. In combination with daily warm baths, this treatment helps relieve your symptoms.The hemorrhoids may be removed surgically or through other methods in extreme cases. Three surgical procedures to remove external hemorrhoids are- a) Laser coagulation- The hemorrhoid is clotted with an electric probe which makes it shrink.b) Infrared photocoagulation- The hemorrhoid is clotted with infrared light to make it shrinks.c) Hemorrhoidectomy- Complete removal of the hemorrhoid. Hemorrhoids care and post treatment care-The hemorrhoids care after clinical or surgical treatment includes high fibre diet, drinking lots of water, safe bowel movements, etc.Always take care that the problem does not recur.

How to Quit Smoking without the Weight Gain

Monday, August 2, 2010


If you are smoking and want to make a healthy lifestyle you could start by deciding for yourself to strip off the habit from your system. But together with aiming to strip off the habit is weight gain because you will increase your appetite when you quit smoking. How can you fight this problem?Cigarettes stimulates metabolism according to smoking cessation therapist, 250 calories in the body get burned when you consumed a pack of cigarette a day. When you quit, the body metabolism slows down resulting for those calories to slowly burn and giving you extra weight. Some people gain 2 pounds once they quit for 2 weeks and with this occurrence they tend to resume smoking to prevent weight gain so quitting will then be unsuccessful. Sticking to the decision of quitting will not be that much of a burden because eventually the metabolism will normalize. Typically, smokers only gain 5-7 pounds throughout the process of quitting. 

And when you think about the advantages of having a healthy and smoke free living, you will feel great inside and out and not minding those gained extra pounds.You vital organs like the lungs, heart and arteries will be free of the toxins and will start to regenerate new cells after being intoxicated with nicotine.Gradually after quitting you will notice changes in your physical appearance.

These are the good fallback of quitting. To lessen the cravings and weight gain, do drinks lots of water ideally 8oz glasses a day to keep you hydrated and to flush out toxins. Substitute healthy food with cigarette but not use junk foods because it won’t help you in becoming healthy. Don’t go for sugar rich and unhealthy foods. Do also have exercises so to keep you busy and increase metabolism. Join group therapy this will help you be encourage on the continuous quitting agenda, use also nicotine replacements.
