Are Celebrity Choices For Weight Loss Right For You?

Are Celebrity Choices For Weight Loss Right For You?

Every day in the media we hear about celebrities gaining weight or losing weight. It isn’t a new fixation, but it does seem to be dominating the media more nowadays. For some people, these stories can feel quite personal. Most of us at one time or another have been worried about our weight. Maybe we gained a little or lost a little. And lots of us have admired a celebrity or two for their fantastic figure. But if you know they achieved that with the help of weight loss programs or surgery, would you be tempted to try it too?

Weight loss, in particular, is a big money making industry. There are so many tried and tested methods for shedding pounds, toning the shape of the body or cutting it to shape under the surgeon’s blade. The trouble is, they seem to work. Some celebrities actively endorse their choice of weight loss. No wonder so many of us are spending so much money trying the diet plans, exercise programs and surgical enhancements they promote.

The truth is harder to figure out, though. When you consider all the different products out there, it’s difficult to find the right diet pills or workout that will work for you personally. You need to do a lot of research to determine if it is right for your body and your lifestyle. And lifestyle certainly does play its part. If you have a busy life, you may not have time for all the workouts that are suggested in some exercise plans. And healthy cooking plans aren’t helpful when you’re at the office more than you’re at home. 4734121385_0fbaa640f3_z

What you need to do is consider just how much in your life you can realistically change. Healthy choices will always be best, and they should yield good results. But if you want to radically alter your body shape, you may need to radically alter how you approach your lifestyle. This can be incredibly hard. And let’s face it – few of us have celebrity money to throw at these things. Personal trainers and expensive surgery are just beyond most of our budgets. 390606540_9c27386ad7_z

Some celebrities speak of detoxes. Others speak of boot camp style fitness regimes. If these suit you, then you may be tempted to try them. But it’s important to remember celebrities need to put on a public face. How they really feel about their bodies and the programs they are adopting will be hard to figure out. That’s why you need to consider how you’re going to feel putting yourself through the things they claim to have done.

And what about all those celebrities that claim they are naturally perfectly formed? Are they telling the truth? If they are, what is their secret? Is it all about good luck, good genes, or being good at hiding the truth? At the end of the day, we are all different. And the appearance of our bodies shouldn’t be making us unhappy. Opt for the healthiest approach you can, and love the body you’re in. Take care.

Cancer Prevention Tips

Last night, I participated in Relay for Life, to support the American Cancer Society. I was a guest bartender, slinging drinks to help the cause. I donated a Tips from Tia gift package. Along with the cool swag, some lucky winner got the following tips on how to help with cancer prevention.

Science has shown over 90% of cancers are linked to an over population to yeast in the body. Yeast and Bacteria live harmoniously in the body, but sometimes one will over populate, and you can get a bacterial infection or yeast infection. Cancer cells already live in our body, without a blood supply. Certain factors allow the cells to get a blood source to live and grow. This is what happens when one develops cancer. The best fight against cancer is prevention.

Cancer Prevention Tips

  • Maintain regular exams: Scheduling yearly exams is the best prevention to cancers. Also, self-exams are a great way to make sure nothing has changed. If you are unsure how to give a self-exam, ask your doctor for the best ways.

 

  • Get proper vaccinations to prevent cancers. Ask your doctor about Hepatitis B and HPV vaccinations.

 

  • Practice Safe Sex: Using a condom for intercourse and oral sex can reduce and prevent certain cancers.

  • Avoid over use of substances: Limit your intake to tobacco and alcohol. Over indulgence, on these substances, have been linked to causing certain cancers.

 

 

 

 

  • Limit your fat intake. Being overweight has increased chances of cancer.

 

  • Eat plenty of vegetables: Dark, leafy greens have shown plenty of benefits.

 

  • Eat strawberries. Studies have shown something in strawberries, other than, vitamin C, has abilities to fight cancer cells.

 

  • Get plenty of Vitamin C.

  • Add Olives into your diet. With olive oil, olives themselves or a supplement is a good source, to get olives into your diet.

 

  • Add Cloves into your diet. Either cooking with cloves or an essential oil and making clove water, with only 2 drops in 8 ounces of water and drinking, can help with prevention. (Caution, clove oil is extremely potent and can burn the skin; oil must be diluted with water or a carrier oil, before applying on skin or ingesting.)

 

  • Protect yourself from the sun. Use a high SPF. Apply 30 minutes before entering the sun, and apply repeatedly throughout the day, even on cloudy days.

 

  • Watch sugar intake. That means overall. Not by replacing sure with sweetners. Everything breaks down into sugar in the body. Sugar feeds yeast. If there is an over population of yeast starting in the body, the sugars you ingest will make yeast populate more.

Here’s wishing you and yours the best health! Thanks, again for your support with Relay for Life!
