Apples have the quality to stifle the appetite. Such foodstuffs with great content of dietary fibers like apples, need more time for chewing. So you have additional time to let your organism know that you are not hungry. That’s why the possibility of overeating comes down. There was an experiment in Brazil. Women, who ate three little apples a day as a part of the healthy diet, lost more weight than women, who didn’t eat apples. Also apples are natural antiphlogistic means.
Cedar nuts have the greatest number of protein among all other kind of nuts or seed. In Siberia hollow hand of cedar nuts is a traditional addition for any food to make the feeling of satiation. What is the secret?
Cedar nuts have natural polyunsaturated fats, which stimulate two big hormones, overpowering hunger. Both hormones send signal to brain that you are not hungry. During an experiment people, who eat cedar nuts, ate other food about 36% less.
Linseed oil is the best vegetative source of fats Omega-3. Additionally you get 8 grams of fibers. So fresh oil helps to control appetite. You should add linseed oil in salad or vegetables.
Natural oatmeal porridge is one of the healthiest carbohydrates. It has rich content of fibers, so porridge can save feeling satiety for a long time. If you eat one plate of oatmeal porridge every day, you decrease the cholesterol level from 8 till 23%.
If you don’t want overeating, try to eat some salad before meal. Fibers help to lower sugar level in blood and so feeling of hunger is decreased. According one research, when 42 women eat simple salad containing 100 calories before dinner, they eat 12% calories less during a meal. Try to vary salads with spinach, chicory and cabbage. Any green will help to restrain feeling hunger.
Soup is one of the most important parts of appetite control and weight loss. Some researches showed that men and women, who ate 2 portions of low-cal soup every day lost on 50% more than those people, who ate light snacks and counted calories. The secret is that soup contains a lot of water and fewer calories as result. It’s important to choose clear soups or vegetable soups, but not cream ones.

Mark Twain says, "A little starvation can really do more for the average sick man than can the best medicines and the best doctors. I do not mean a restricted diet; I mean total abstinence from food for one or two days. I speak from experience; starvation has been my cold and fever doctor for 15 years, and has accomplished a cure in all instances."
It seems that Mark Twain did mean fasting, not starvation, because fasting starts with the omission of the first meal and ends with the return of natural hunger, while starvation only begins with the return of natural hunger and terminates in death. Natural hunger is the body saying that it is time to stop the fast.
Fasting is an effective and safe method of detoxifying the body. Fasting provides a period of concentrated physiological rest during which time the body can devote its self-healing mechanisms to repairing and strengthening damaged organs. The process of fasting also allows the body to cleanse cells of accumulated toxins and waste products.
One of the commonest complaints of the sick is that they have "lost their appetite". Loss of appetite is an indication that the system is overcharged with toxins. That is why they lose appetite – their body is telling them to stop eating and give a chance to the waste accumulation in the organs to escape from the system. In fact, the greatest blessing to them would be to lose their appetite long enough to find their hunger.
Each time you complete a fast, you will feel better. Your body will have a chance to heal and rebuild its immune system. You can fight off illness and the degenerative diseases so common in this chemically polluted environment we live in. When you feel a cold or illness coming on or are just depressed - fast!
It is important to understand that the key part of a fast is how a person lives after the fast. Fasting can provide a clean and revitalized foundation upon which you can build and maintain a strong and well-conditioned body by consistently making healthy food and lifestyle choices. Fasting can help reverse the aging process, and if we use it correctly, we will live longer, happier lives.
Of course, certain people who have medical problems should not fast or do so only under direct medical supervision. If you have very low fat reserves to begin with or suffer from anemia, bulimia or anorexia you should not fast. Pregnant or nursing women should also not start a fasting program. These people should pursue other methods of detoxification.

Germination increases the ferment activity, so the number of vitamins and minerals is increased too. Radish, wheat, barley, soy, rice… All these can be eaten separately, in various dishes, juices or sandwiches. You can buy all these in the market or grow in your garden.
Exotics is in fashion now. It’s good, because ginger, karri, caraway, paprika and cinnamon gives the special taste even to common dishes.

Ginger combines with fried shrimps, karri with rice, anise combines with exotic dishes: Indian or Chinese.
Antioxidants and calcium
Thick milk drinks with fruit filling have many vitamins and calcium. But choose free-fat milk and yoghurts. And don’t add sugar! Also you’d better to change caw milk to sheep, goat or soya-based milk. Cellulose contained in fruits and berries, lets to feel satiety without snacks.
Well, mix fruits, fruit juice and yoghurt in equal parts and add 3 ice-blocks. Have a nice taste!
Fount of vitamins
Sure you know that there are more microelements and vitamins in raw foodstuff than in boiled. Pay attention to food quality! Fish and meat have to be very fresh and clean. Generally it’s very useful to eat by one fruit and one vegetable every day; and unboiled meat and fish once a week.

It is a substance called catechins that is responsible for the weight loss effects of green tea. If you don't like the taste of green tea, you can buy green tea extract to get the catechins that you desire. Be sure to read the ingredients and label before you purchase any supplement.
Also green tea is light in caffeine when compared to a drink like coffee, but since there is caffeine, don't count green tea as part of your daily water intake. Instead, drink a little extra water to offset the effect of the green tea's caffeine. Drink as much tea as you are comfortable drinking. During all dieting period drink green or herbal tea 3-4 times a day with 1-2 teaspoons of jam or honey.
Dieting period: 3 days. On the menu:
Day 1: fruit, 1.5 ounces of cheese, 5 ounces of broth, fruit salad.
Day 2: 1 egg, 1.5 ounces of cheese, vegetable salad, fruit ice-cream, boiled vegetable, a piece of rye bread.
Day 3: 1 egg, 5 ounces of low-fat yogurt, an apple, 3.5 ounces of fish, vegetable salad.

Hot new research reveals that ice cream -- when eaten as part of a healthy diet -- may actually melt away fat; helping you lick extra pounds quicker than if you abstained! Plus, a dish a day helps you get healthier in other ways.
The ice-cream diet is very tasty and easy for keeping. You will feel comfortable and satisfied when following the dieting plan. Weight loss diets are often associated with privations and hunger tortures. But it isn't going to happen when you decide to lose weight this way.
The ice-cream diet includes ice-cream in a daily intake plan. It can be milk or fruit ice-cream - the one you like best, or their combination. Keeping the ice-cream diet you won't suffer from hunger. But still you will lose weight as you give up all sweet food except for a helping of ice-cream.
Ice-cream diet daily meal plan:
Breakfast: a small piece of rye-bread, fruit salad and sugar-free green tea.
Lunch: vegetable soup, 3.5 ounces of chicken, 3.5 ounces of brown rice, vegetable salad, sugar-free green tea and about 3 ounces of your favorite ice-cream.
Dinner: 2 baked potatoes, vegetable stew, and mineral water.
Supper: if evening ice-cream is more enjoyable, you can have about 2.5 ounces of ice-cream instead of the lunch helping.

As for determining ideal weight, it is impossible to name a precise number of pounds by height, age, or something else, but the fact is that there are huge negative effects of obesity. A significant part of the American population cannot climb a flight of stairs without being out of breath.
However, there is no need to fixate on losing all your excess weight. This type of intention leads to a crash diet. If you decide to commit to those crash diets, you will lose the weight, but then you will realize that there is no way you can eat that way for the rest of your life. So, you will gain the weight back. The better way is to focus on getting healthy. Getting to an ideal weight is more about adding intensity to workouts.
There are three parts to effective workouts or physical activity: frequency, intensity and duration. Intensity is the most direct way to change your health for the better and lose body fat in the process. If you are a runner, devote the last 10 to 15 minutes of some runs to hard sprinting for 30 seconds followed by 90 seconds of recovery pace, then repeat three to five times. If you walk for exercise, do the same 30-second burst/90-second recovery pace sequence or add some hills or incline on your treadmill. For weight lifters, load your barbell at an amount that fatigues the muscles after 8 to 12 repetitions.
Physical activity or lack of it affects personal health. You can be healthy at a higher weight than what a professional might consider ideal, but you should increase your workouts' intensity to keep your weight off.

Here are some simple and easy to follow steps to lose weight fast. Lose those unwanted pounds and start to look great and feel good again.
- After breakfast, make water your primary drink
At breakfast, go ahead and drink orange juice. But throughout the rest of the day, focus on water instead of juice or soda. Research shows that sugary drinks do not trigger a sense of fullness the way that food does.
- Eat at least five servings of fruit and vegetables a day
Not only do fruits and vegetables fill you up, they also supply vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to improve your health.
- Make exercise part of your day
Exercise is vital and you must make time for it during your day. The best time to exercise is as soon as you get out of bed in the morning. Get up an hour earlier, have a walk, and then come back and go on with your day.
- Find an online weight-loss buddy
Studies find that online weight-loss buddies help you keep the weight off.
- Pare your portions
Whether you eat at home or in a restaurant, immediately remove one-third of the food on your plate. Studies find that if you serve people more food, they will eat more food, regardless of their hunger level.
- Hang a mirror opposite your seat at the table
One study found that eating in front of mirrors slashed the amount people ate by nearly one-third.
- Eat 90 percent of your meals at home
You are more likely to eat more - and eat more high-fat, high-calorie foods - when you eat out than when you eat at home.
- Eat slowly and calmly
Your brain lags your stomach by about 20 minutes when it comes to satiety (fullness) signals. If you eat slowly enough, your brain will catch up to tell you that you are no longer in need of food.
- Take a walk before dinner
You will do more than burn calories - you will cut your appetite.
- Brush your teeth after every meal, especially after dinner
That clean, mint freshness will serve as a cue to your body and brain that mealtime is over.
- State the positive
If you keep focusing on things you can't do, like resisting junk food or getting out the door for a daily walk, chances are you won't do them. Instead, whether you believe it or not, repeat positive thoughts to yourself.

1. Try eating more regularly, even if it means more frequently. Eat an average of 5 small meals a day, instead of 2 or 3 large ones, where you stuff yourself. Be conscious about what you eat. Keep a food diary and note down everything you eat. You may be shocked at the results.
2. Take before and after photos. There’s no easier way to illustrate your progress. The “after” photos are far more fun to capture and share, admittedly.
3. Drink a lot of water. This reduces hunger pangs and gives you more energy. If you’re not drinking enough water, your body will let you know. Thirst is an amazing sensation - quench it. If you’re not hydrated, your body won’t be working at peak levels. Most of your body happens to be water, by the way. If you’re worried about “water weight,” remember that you’re likely to retain more water when you’re not giving your body enough of it in the first place. Besides, that’s what those workout sessions are supposed to help with every other morning.
4. Join an aerobics class. It's more disciplined and it's always better to work out in a group.
5. Stay busy. Don't just sit around wasting time. Chances are your mind will wander to that delicious chocolate cake? Partake in activities that are not conducive to eating. Join a singing class, take up oil painting or gardening - cultivate a hobby. When you reach for the refrigerator, stop and question yourself. Are you just bored or are you really hungry? In most of the cases the answer will be the former. Stick little post-it notes on the refrigerator saying, Stop! Or Reach for a glass of water.
6. Don’t compare yourself to others. Every body is different. It stands to reason that everybody will lose weight differently. Even if you do the exact same things that I do, you won’t lose weight at the same rate. The key is in finding your triggers. Keep your goal in sight, and do whatever you have to do to meet that goal. When you start looking at someone else’s habits, you’re only going to become discouraged and quit without even realizing that it’s physically impossible to be anybody but yourself.
7. If you have to snack, try this. It’s okay to snack between meals, really. Small meals throughout the day are enough to keep you satisfied, as (much like the sensation of being full) you never want to feel hungry. Let your body know it’s going to get a regular regimen of calories. Plus, if you starve yourself for the regular meals, you’re probably going to eat more before your brain tells your mouth to stop. Think about it: breakfast, lunch, and dinner are social constructs at their very core.
8. Sleep it off. To be an efficient fat-burning machine, your body requires at least eight hours of sleep a night. If you think that you’re doing yourself a favor by sleeping less, you’re mistaken. Give your body time to rest, both mentally and physically. Sleep is very important.
9. Visualize how you will look without those extra kilograms. Buy clothes a size smaller and work towards fitting into them.
10. Set realistic goals. You can lose 50 pounds in a week if you work out 12 hours a day and eat nothing but celery - but not if you’re human. Slow and steady wins the race. Don’t bite off more than you can chew - literally. Make small goals on your way to the bigger goal(s). In the end, you’ll have achieved more.
11. Get motivated. No one is going to lose your weight for you. You're going to have to do it all by yourself, and if the motivation doesn't come from within you, no amount of friends and family pushing you to lose weight is going to help.

Claudia Schiffer needs to exercise and watch her diet to keep fit even with her busy schedule. After 20 years in the modelling business, and being Mum to two young children, Claudia admits she still has to work at keeping her statuesque figure. "I enjoy good food very much," she says, "and I'm not one of those women who can eat whatever they want. I have to watch myself very carefully and think about what I eat all the time. I don't drink alcohol - not even to celebrate an occasion - and I steer clear of caffeine. If I don't it's a disaster."
On a typical morning she will have fruit for breakfast, along with tea and honey. "For lunch I try to have salads or vegetables or soups," she says, "and for dinner, chicken salad or tuna salad or a bit of regular chicken or vegetables. I try very hard to eat healthy. And it's not only for my figure. Sure, I would like to keep it the way it is. But it's also for the energy. I have much more energy when I'm thinner. Sweets make me very tired. Heavy food, lots of meat, makes me tired."
Her main ideas about healthy food are evinced in her diet 5+. Diet provides with 1200 kilocalories a day and leads to rapid weight loss - about 6.5 - 9 lbs per course. It is tasty, low-calorie and balanced diet. You won’t feel hungry. “5+” means that dieting period is 5 days. At the 6th day you are allowed to eat something tasty (like compensation), what you want, but only till 4 p.m., and then you can only drink water.
The Claudia's Diet will satisfy everyone, who likes fruits and vegetables. Also, this diet allows to drink water without limits, but water should be not aerated.
On the menu:
Breakfast: a bowl of blended fruits (except bananas and grapes) with 1 tablespoon of couched grains and sugar-free yogurt, green tea.
Lunch: fruit cocktail. 100 ml of any juice with the same amount of yogurt.
Dinner: vegetable stew (cauliflower, pepper, carrot, 1 tablespoon of peas or French beans, onion, celery, parsley). Sauce: 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 3.5 ounces of sour cream, a tablespoon of lemon juice.
Second lunch: sandwich. 3.5 ounces of boiled chicken, bread with bran.
Supper: main diet dish – fruit pilau. 1.8 ounces of boiled rice mixed with an apple and 3.5 ounces of other fruit and berries.

And it’s really true! Everyone can lose weight by laughing. Researchers discovered that laughing man loses up to 20% energy more. New research published in the International Journal of Obesity has discovered that laughter really is the best medicine for a weight problem.
The small study included 45 pairs of adult friends, who were shown either funny or serious film clips in a room that was set up with equipment to measure the amount of calories burnt and to monitor the rate, duration and type of laughter. The participants also wore heart monitors to measure their heart rate. The researchers discovered that laughing increased both heart rate and calorie expenditure by up to 20 per cent – and the longer participants laughed for the greater the effects. Although laughter has long been thought to be good for the heart and the immune system, this is the first study to suggest a benefit in weight loss.
The scientists consider that just 15 minutes of laughter a day will burn 10 to 40 calories, depending on a person’s weight and the intensity of the laughter. In other words, 10-15 minutes of laugh per day deprive the same amount of kilocalories, as the bar of chocolate adds. That’s enough to shift between 1 and 4lb a year.
Being overweight can make you feel miserable, but if you want to lose those excess pounds, you should better try to have a good laugh. It might be the simplest way to lose weight ever. So, lose weight, laughing!

What do you drink after fitness training? Sure you might grab a bottle of water or any sports drink, but not milk. But in vain! How about reaching for milk instead? Milk may be the ideal drink to help you gain muscle and burn fat after a workout. Take milk with you in the gym, if you think not only about your health but also about weight loss. That’s true for both athletes and recreational exercisers.
A brand new study showed that people who drank only 2 cups of skim milk after physical activity lost two times body fat than those compared to sports drinks. As published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, a study at McMaster University examined the post-workout effects of drinking 2 cups of skim milk vs. a soy beverage with the same amount of protein and energy vs. a carbohydrate drink (like a sports drink) with about the same amount of energy. The researchers followed 3 groups of men from 18 to 30 years old. These 56 men engaged in rigorous weightlifting 5 days a week over a 12-week period. When the study was over, the researchers discovered that the milk drinking group had lost almost twice as much fat (2 pounds) as the carbohydrate drinking group (1 pound). The soy drinkers lost no fat. In addition, the milk drinkers gained 40% more muscle (2.5 pounds) than the soy drinkers and 63% more muscle (3.3 pounds) than the carbohydrate drinkers. The researchers concluded that milk is the ideal post-workout drink.
Well, it is recommended a glass of cold milk after a workout because it is refreshing, it rehydrates you and it helps restore muscles. It also contains nine essential nutrients and you can drink two to four servings of milk, dairy products or milk alternatives daily as part of a healthy diet. So go ahead and drink your milk, just make sure it is after a good workout to ensure maximum body fat loss. But since the milk has extra calories, it's a good idea to choose low fat or fat-free milk and limit the amount.

Why do we love oranges? They have bright color, nice aroma and the great number of vitamin C. But doctors recommend taking this vitamin only in the first part of the day. So oranges and orange juice are! Really they are good for breakfast or dinner but not for supper.
The thing is that vitamin C has energy-wise stimulating effect. If you eat an orange in the morning, this surprising fruit gives you the necessary energy. And to the contrary, eating orange in the evening, you can get sleeplessness as result. For an energy kick, there's nothing like an orange smoothie. To bump up the nutritional value, use fresh-squeezed orange juice. Also they help you with weight loss.
To make orange and banana smoothie you will need: 3/4 cup orange juice, 1/2 cup sliced banana, 2 teaspoons packed brown sugar, 1/8 teaspoon almond extract, 2 ice cubes, fresh mint sprig, for garnish. Combine orange juice, banana, brown sugar, and almond extract in a blender. Add ice cubes and blend until thick and smooth. Pour into a serving glass and garnish with a mint sprig, if desired.
For milk and orange smoothie you should take 1 (6 ounce) can of frozen orange juice concentrate, 1 cup milk, 1 cup water, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/3 cup white sugar, 10 ice cubes. In a blender, combine orange juice concentrate, milk, water, vanilla, sugar and ice. Blend until smooth. Pour into glasses and serve.
