Supporting Your Body to Promote Weight Loss

Many people still rely upon their diet programs to some degree for weight loss. It does not matter if you're country clubber, an achiever or the metro man, getting back into shape and ridding those regrettable pounds is always in the back of your mind.

A really simple way to increase calorie and fat burning throughout the day and during your workout routines is to incorporate a weight loss support supplement that can naturally help you lower body fat.

While it seems as a no-brainer, many guys neglect to do anything else other than cutting down on their pop beverages or fasting to drop a few pounds, and as a result get stuck with a bulge and can't figure out how to fight it.

Back when I worked for major telecom company, I recall trying to increase my water intake and skipping some of those company-paid business lunches, which only caused me to overeat at dinner time as my body tried to make up for the meal I had missed. Not only was this in vain, but the corporate lifestyle just didn't help at all -- constant traveling, jet lag, not enough sleep, etc., it all shoved into my weight, and there are a lot of people lumped in similar situations.

So, today's Weight Loss Tips is easy: go and buy 24 Fit System. A natural around-the-clock regimen to support weight loss processes, decrease in bodily fat and increases in lean muscle for a fit and lean appearance.

Try not to limit yourself to just diet and exercise -- you can combine them with a scientifically developed product that can reinforce and enhance your body to lose weight.

Imagine, if your body is not getting enough conditioning and/or the wrong grubs, just by taking a natural weight loss support supplement you could increase its metabolic rate and its ability to lose weight.

Start the Year with a Healthy Diet!

Here’s a nice weight loss tip that will make you feel like a million bucks: empty out your junkie diet. There’s nothing like a healthy diet to motivate you and give you a fresh start for the year.

Here’s how to do it while losing those extra holiday pounds. Start by cleaning out your refrigerator; gather any left over holiday food and give it to someone else – get rid of it. Presto! Your food box is clean and empty, so you can make a trip to the closest fresh market and buy healthy foods – lots of fruits, delicious vegetables, lean meats and whole grain items. It may sound eerie, but it's a simple thing.

Start keeping a food journal to track your eating habits. You'll be surprised how much goes under the radar when you're not watching what you eating. By just logging the foods you eat along with portion sizes can give you a good idea as to how you can eat healthier.

Cut back on certain foods in your diet and starting an exercise program this week. Consume more protein and take a nutritional supplement like 24 Fit System: a natural around-the-clock regimen to support weight loss processes, decrease in bodily fat and increases in lean muscle for a fit and lean appearance.

Can you make these changes? Yes!

Try this trick to start out the new year with a healthy diet. It’s also great if you want to lose weight fast, but think that in order to quickly lose to those unwanted pounds, you'll have to take 24 Fit System. You’ll feel like you’ve got a fresh new chance at getting fit fast.

New Book Raises Controversy About The Way We Think of Diet and Nutrition

If you've ever browsed the health aisle of a bookstore, you have a pretty good idea of the huge amount of information available covering almost every facet of health, eating and nutrition. More and more of these books are published everyday, pushing new ideas about nutrition to the forefront, and causing yesterday's advice to fade into the background.

With all this "nutritional help" available, why are men still dealing with a growing weight problem?

Gary Taubes proposes to shed a different light on the answer in his new book, Good Calories, Bad Calories. Although the book has caused plenty of eyebrows to lift by heaping even more blame on carbs for increased weight problems and revealing that the "obesity" crisis actually comes down to a small increase of body mass index, Taubes's main point seems to be that our ideas of nutrition and weight gain are based on scientific information that has not been thoroughly tested or proven, and has simply been accepted by us as "fact."

Taubes is getting plenty of heat for his strong views (some say he tends to omit contradictory health studies of the past), and he's gained plenty of attention for this new approach to nutrition (he's been featured in Men's Journal, ABC News, and the New York Times last month alone).

But what do you think about Taubes's concept? Is there anything wrong with re-thinking the facts of nutrition? Or is it just another book to add to the growing mountain of literature offering yet another "health fix" for the average man?

Get Fit By Eating Well

Staying fit and losing some pounds can be a daunting task for men. Because of this, MenScience has prepared a set of no-nonsense tips that will have you looking good and feeling great.

1. Try eating several small meals throughout the day. This controls appetite and keeps your metabolism going.

2. Don't starve and then binge. Skipping meals could end up promoting more fat storage and lowering your metabolism due to fluctuating insulin and blood sugar levels.

3. Set regular mealtimes and stick with them. Once your body comes to expect a meal at the same time everyday, it's easier to avoid sudden cravings and snack attacks.

4. When hunger strikes, make sure you've got some healthy snack options available to you (this is a great way to get in your 5-9 servings a day of fruits and vegetables).

5. Protein is more filling than simple carbohydrates and has fewer calories, so be sure to include fish, lean beef and pork, white-meat poultry, eggs, nuts and beans in your diet.

6. Reduce serving sizes and eat a wider variety of food. Don't deny yourself your favorite foods...just consume them in moderation.

7. Avoid drinks that contain calories and stick to water instead. Many men don't realize that beverages are often loaded with empty calories and don't accommodate for them with their meals.

8. One simple way to avoid packing on calories is to use more spices in your food and less condiments like mayonnaise, butter and sour cream.

9. Eat slowly so your body gets a chance to register the food and you won't end up eating more than you should. Eat until you feel satisfied; not stuffed.

Dollars for Donuts

You think putting on some weight is embarrassing? What if an entire town was watching you? In a move which could backfire magnificently or vastly improve the health of its citizens, an Italian town will pay overweight and obese men who live there to lose weight.

According to Reuters: Men living in the northwestern Italian town of Varallo will receive 50 euros ($70) for losing 4 kg (9 pounds) in a month, Mayor Gianluca Buonanno said. Women will get the same amount for shedding 3 kg (7 pounds).


Will Italian residents lose the pounds? And more importantly, would America be wading through an obesity crisis if we were getting paid to work the fat off? Hmmm.....

Men of MenScience: David Miller

David Miller doesn't know the meaning of the words "couch potato." He's a fitness trainer who's achieved an incredible level of success as the founder of D.A.M. Good Bodies Elite Personal Training.

Maintaining a diverse roster of clients that includes athletes, entertainers, models and professionals, David has devoted his life to helping people become the healthiest and fittest they can be. "Training is so much more involved then most people realize. I've worked with a wide range of clients from athletes that want to take it to the next level, to people who have not regularly exercised since they were in high school," he states.

David began his life-long love of fitness with a very active childhood, and pursued athletics throughout school and into college where he received a B.S. in Exercise & Sport Science from Penn State University. As a football player there, David understood what it took to get athletes into shape. He used this knowledge to help train athletes at Penn State and Temple University, and later on as Physical Director & Coordinator of Personal Training and Fitness Testing at the Central Branch YMCA. After gaining these years of experience, David officially launched D.A.M. Good Bodies Elite Personal Training in Philadelphia in 1992. He later relocated his company to Hollywood, Florida, but still maintains strong ties with his hometown.

At D.A.M. Good Bodies, David customizes specific programs that incorporate cardio, resistance training, flexibility and nutrition guidance for a variety of clients. He says, "I'm constantly giving information to clients. I don't want them to do something just because I say they should; I want them to understand why they should do it."

The 41-year-old athlete has built a solid career on discovering what it takes to get the human body in top form and this hasn't gone unrecognized: David was named Best Personal Trainer in his hometown of Philadelphia by Heart & Soul Magazine and has been featured in Health Quest magazine, the Philadelphia Inquirer, on the cover of ESPN Magazine, and on numerous radio programs. He is currently certified by the National Strength & Conditioning Association and American Council on Exercise, and is a member of the International Association of Fitness Professionals.

He says, "I've been doing this for 20 years, and I'm still always learning, I'm always discovering new information and research. You have to try and educate yourself."

While still creating and implementing customized, effective physical training programs at D.A.M. Good Bodies, David has also recently become concerned about the growing trend of childhood obesity and would like to become involved in eliminating this problem.

It is because of David's firm commitment to improving the health of Americans one person at a time that MenScience recognizes him as a true Man of MenScience.

The Case Against Liquid Lunches

Everyone knows your body needs hydration for optimal performance, especially during sweaty, summer months. But a new study might have you reassessing how much beverage you should actually drink.

According to a study performed at Purdue University in Indiana, subjects who "drank" a controlled lunch of specially-prepared liquid test foods ended up consuming more calories than those that ate a solid food-and-water meal. The study concluded:

All three groups consumed the most total calories on days when a meal supplement was liquid (be it milk, watermelon juice or coconut milk), consuming 12 percent to 20 percent more calories than on solid-food days. Professor Wayne Campbell says that prior studies have measured feelings of hunger but it has been "a leap of faith to believe that feelings of hunger correspond to the amount of calories consumed." This experiment stands out, he says, because calorie intake was directly measured---revealing that people drinking liquid foods later consumed more calories even though they had reported feeling just as full.

More calories are absorbed through beverage-drinking because the body does not recognize beverages as an actual food source. After all, "people may get up to to 50 percent of their calories from beverages -- but for most of human history, the only beverage was water. The idea that liquids contain nutrients, Campbell says, is one our bodies aren't yet aware of."

And you thought that double-chocolate milkshake was the only danger to your health.
