Weight Loss Secrets - Will Parasites Make You Gain Or Lose Weight?

Finally you will know why you were never able to get rid of all that extra weight although you have done everything the weight loss experts say to do, tried all the diets, jogged your heels off, starved, sweat and dried out your bank account.

It is impossible for you to effectively conquer your over weight issues unless you are fully aware of what is preventing you from losing the fat, and no, it is not food, neither is it a lack of exercise. It is also the root of all diseases in your whole body. And though you might have heard this before, I will now give you the key the quick weight loss secrets.

Those big fat weight loss 'blockers' are literally 'worms', and they are many. And yes, they are parasites. So don't overly blame yourself for being fat. It isn't totally your fault, until now of course, now that I am revealing to you the absolute what, where, when, why and how to fix all your weight problems.

You must have noticed how, not long after eating a super sized serving of highly delicious food, before it's even digested, you are hungry again? This is how parasites work. Well, my old Webster's tell me that a parasite is that which lives on or in another living organism from which it takes nourishment, causing harm to the host. So, what are the tightly kept weight loss secrets?

These dangerous creatures obviously entered your stomach through your diet and take up residence there, rapidly multiplying for several years, and are responsible for 85% of all the physical, mental and emotional hell that you go through.

Therefore, this Dis-EASE, Dis-comfort, Dis-tress, Dis-grunt, Dis-content, Dis-harmony, Dis-gust, Dis-ability and Dis-FIGURE that you are suffering in your body is primarily caused from years and years of accumulated toxic waste coupled with a fleet of life sucking worms actively breaking down your inner parts and causing instability. You see, we are told all about the supposed nutritional value of our carefully selected food group and all the natural results we should expect but no one explains why things don't happen the way they should. Well, let me briefly explain.

These parasites crave the same nutrients that your body requires from your meal so while you are eating they are also busy grappling down all the healthy nutritious beneficial portion of your meal and storing it in their bodies, thus leaving the 'left over' for your body to work with. No wonder they are so much healthier than you are.

Now remember, they are the parasites, not you. They feed off you, you cannot in turn feed off them so the nutritious meal you just ate was captured and eaten up by these big fat suckers and your body has no access to it. Your body got none of the well prepared balanced diet you just had. That is why you are so hungry, desperate, sick and miserable.

So you kept reaching for more and more food and you are only left with the refuse that your fully nourished inhabitants do not want, the JUNK.

If you are to successfully treat your 'extra weight' problem it is absolutely necessary for you to Kill those suckers, Flush them out and quickly Restore & Revive your body, and after careful research, I found a few very effective and fast solutions for that, all in one shot.

But this is what I did. Having already spent so much money on weight loss products, fat loss magic pills, every diet program on the planet, I was very reluctant to try anything new until I was at least sure of the results so I welcomed the free trial offers and they worked perfectly for me.

Before Weight Loss Secrets Revealed was shared with you, Success and Results were out of your reach but not again. End the depression and frustration with yourself. Try it and prove that losing weight and living a rich healthy life does not have to be an unsolved mystery. Quick healthy fat loss is no longer a secret.

The Greatest Weight Loss Secret of Them All!

Why is weight loss difficult?

If, like me, you've struggled to maintain a healthy weight, you may well have asked yourself just why it can be so difficult. The answer to that question is that the human body is designed to cope with shortages of food and protect itself from starvation. It does this in two ways:

  1. The body lays down fat in times of plenty.
  2. The body slows down its metabolism when food is short so less fat than usual gets burned.

In most of the western world, every day is a day of plenty! If you regularly give way to the temptation to eat too much of the tasty, fattening food available, the inevitable happens and you end up with a fat belly (hips, thighs...)

The body's trick of slowing down its metabolism has sabotaged many a diet! You cut out too much food, the body takes this as a sign of famine and its starvation response is triggered. It doesn't realise that you are trying to shed that fat and tries to conserve it for you. It doesn't know that the 'famine' will end with your next meal. This slowed metabolism means that you have to eat even less food to get the desired result. Cutting out even more food really sends the body into a panic, and the metabolism slows further. You become listless and lacking the energy to do the exercise which would help burn that fat. What's more, you feel terrible. Worst of all, you aren't even losing much weight...

So, how can significant weight loss be achieved?

Some people would suggest achieving weight loss through drugs or surgery. Effective, healthier, safer, cheaper and more pleasant alternatives exist. These make far more sense for most people.

It is possible to lose weight without suffering, it just requires an understanding of how to go about it and the patience to see it through.

People have been successfully controlling their weights for many years, and these are the people you need to copy.

The greatest weight loss secret of them all

If I told you that the secret was to sit and watch your favourite movie with an ice-cold beer in your hand, and you had to do that at least 5 times a week, do you think that you could manage that? I thought so -- I could do that too!

Unfortunately, that is not the secret of losing weight. It's the secret of how a lot of us put it on. There is, however, something that we can learn from that -- we like doing certain things, we don't make excuses to avoid doing them, and those things have consequences. We need to turn that principle around so that it works for us instead of against us.

We all know that losing weight involves eating healthy quantities of healthy food, and getting plenty of healthy exercise, so that isn't the secret either.

No, the secret to lasting, effective weight loss is... (drum roll)... PLEASURE!

It is no use going on some crazy diet because it will drive you mad, and at the first possible opportunity you will give it up and go back to eating what you love. It is no use spending 3 hours a day in the gym if you hate going to the gym! As soon as you hit your weight loss target, you'll start finding very good excuses for why you can't make it to the gym this week, or even this month!

Believe it or not, In the huge array of foods available to us, there are lots of good, healthy non-fattening options that you can get great pleasure from eating. You just need to use a bit of imagination and look for them.

Believe or not, healthy exercise doesn't have to be boring. If you hate the gym, don't go to the gym.

Love playing golf? Play golf, but remember -- this is supposed to be exercise, so carry your own clubs and walk briskly between holes. No golf buggies!

Love dogs? Get a dog. A border collie, or some other breed that needs a lot of exercise -- for this job, lapdogs need not apply! Take the dog down to your local park as often as you can and chase him about, throw frisbees for him. You'll both have a great time, you'll boost your metabolism and burn fat.

Hate dogs, but love cycling? Buy a bicycle and ride it as often as you can! Commuting by bike (if you live within, say,  8-10 miles of where you work) is a great way of losing weight and saving money at the same time.

I don't like golf. I do love dogs, but I can't commit to one -- I travel about too much. I also love cycling and that is my weight loss exercise secret. You need to find something energetic that you love too -- dancing, swimming, hiking... there will be something. Keep looking until you find it, then do it, regularly and with enthusiasm.

Remember, the weight loss secret is to replace the unhealthy things that give you pleasure with healthy things that give you just as much or more pleasure.

Weight Loss Secrets of the Caveman

You may not think it, but cavemen possessed weight loss secrets that we can use today. Without even knowing it, they had the perfect diet and exercise program for weight loss that we can learn from even in today's high tech, modern world.

You see, around 40,000 years ago, mankind had it rough. They were nomads wandering their world, hunting and gathering for food. There were no corner fast food joints or convenience stores open 24 hours a day.

Mr. Caveman couldn't walk to his 'fridge and get a snack. If he, or his family, was hungry, he had to go and hunt down an animal of some kind. They foraged the forests and savannas, or jungles for nuts, berries, tubers, and anything else that was edible.

Let's just say, it was a tough time for mankind, but this is also a point in our history when we were probably the healthiest. Yes, they died young, but not because of weight related issues. They simply didn't possess the medicine to fight diseases the way we do today, nor did they live in safe cul de sacs that protected them against attacks from ferocious animals.

Cavemen were no different physiologically than you and me. If you had a time machine and could kidnap a caveman baby, bring him back to the future, and you could raise him as your own, you wouldn't be able to tell him apart from anyone else.

They didn't sport the heavy eyebrow ridges, nor were they exceptionally hairy as portrayed in certain car insurance commercials. They were like us.

They looked like us, they even had our thinking capacity and though processes. Of course, they were also shaped by their environment, and theirs was a harsh one. Yet somehow, they possessed weight loss secrets we can learn from today.

Their bodies adapted to that environment over hundreds of thousands of years. They never knew when they would get their next meals. It could be tomorrow, it could be next week, so they adapted the ability to store excess calories as fat so they could be used during times of famine.

Of course now, famine in developed countries is extremely rare. Food is plentiful. We don't have to hunt anything if we don't want to, and we definitely don't have to scour the forest for food.

We live in a time when our knowledge of the world is an all time high. But with all of our technology, all of our knowledge, why are we still so fat? Why is obesity so rampant? Why are people dying of weight related problems?

We know what causes us to be fat. We know how not to be fat.

Our ancestors didn't know any of this. All they were concerned with was where their their next meal was coming from, yet rarely would you find a fat caveman. Of course, since I didn't live in that time, nor did anyone else I know, this is merely a conjecture.

But, imagine our caveman ancestor for a second. First of all, they were constantly on the go. They had to in order to just be able to find food since they didn't have the capacity to store food for long periods of time. They also had to carry their belongings with them so imagine carrying a heavy backpack loaded with your worldly possessions, and having to walk several miles per day, every day. Occasionally, they would also have to run very fast, even sprint, to get away from an attacking animal, or perhaps another caveman. Talk about awesome, fat burning workouts.

Now, imagine their diet. They eat several small meals throughout the day consisting of nuts, berries, and protein rich insects (yucky, I know, but very nutritious). They don't eat grains, and they don't eat anything hydrogenated. They never eat sugars which means they never drink soda, or eat candy. They never eat anything made of white flour which means no breads, or doughnuts.

Everything they eat is completely organic and natural. How do you imagine such a person would look like? Would they sport the pot belly so common among modern day humans? Of course not.

On the contrary--they would be very lean, and physically strong with a great work capacity and exceptional endurance. They wouldn't have high cholesterol, or Type II diabetes, or any of the myriad of diseases associated with poor eating, and a fat waistline.

Now imagine if you could transplant such a lifestyle and diet to the modern world, and add today's medicine, and lack of dying from woolly mammoth attacks, you would have the ultimate weight loss program. That's the weight loss secret that the caveman intuitively knew, and somehow we forgot.

The Fast Weight Loss Secret - Our Diet Tips to Lose Weight Now!

Has the best fast weight loss secret evaded you thus far? Have you started one program only to quit midway and start another set of diet tips to lose weight that you felt was better suited to you? I hate to break it to you but more then likely it wasn't the program you were half committed to that was the problem. You just weren't aware of the weight loss secret and how to best apply it. The most important part of this secret is that you have to be able to make up your mind and then follow through until. Until what you may ask? Until you finish of course. This article main intent will be to communicate the best fast weight loss secret and it's application.

The Secret

First off you need to be told right up front that just about any weight loss program will work if you actually use it consistently enough for it to bear fruit. So the problem isn't necessarily with the program rather your use or non-use of it. To solve that we will recommend tips so simple that all they will require from you is the commitment to follow through. In fact two of three methods you already do everyday.

The best fast weight loss secret will require that you commit to doing four things consistently. You will need to honor the commitment to follow through, drink more water, eat more frequently and exercise more. Not complicated but very tedious at least until they become new habits.

Secret Tip #1 - Drink More Water Everyday
Our goal here is to greatly minimize or reduce the amount of calories you take in from drinking. The most basic way to comply with this is to substitute anything you drink now that has sugar in it for water. No large hoops to jump through with this one except maybe the habit you have of drinking soda, fruit juice and other beverages that are full of sugar everyday. This leads to the next secret . . .

Secret Tip #2 - Eat More Meals Everyday
The main intent here is to raise your metabolic rate so that you are potentially burning calories all the time. That includes sitting and sleeping. In order for that to happen you will need to make sure that you change your current eating habits from 2-3 times a day to 5-7 times a day. Along with this you also need to make sure your portions are appropriately minimized and that you don't skip a meal. Doing this will allow you to potentially burn more calories all of the time which is the goal of the next secret . . .

Secret Tip #3 - Exercise More Frequently
Our goal for this part of the secret is two fold. We want to provide another activity that burns calories and we want to improve your general level of fitness. This is accomplished by you making a commitment to exercise at least two to three times a week. This should be an aerobic type of exercise and each session should be 30 minutes or longer.

We have very briefly touched on some effective ways for you to lose weight. The most important one being your ability to honor the commitment of the weight loss program you are currently following. The best fast weight loss secret plan we presented requires you to drink more water, eat more meals and exercise more frequently. The plan is basic but like we stated initially if followed will produce the results I am sure you are looking for. This is why the best fast weight loss secret is something that can't really be communicated. It needs to be experienced. Just do it!

Three Weight Loss Secrets You Must Know

Getting rid of bad eating habits and remaining motivated are two things that are not exactly easily accomplished in our society, which is dominated by effortless access to junk food while at the same time glorifying skinny 18 year-olds walking down runways. Here are 3 key weight loss secrets that you should incorporate in your daily life and make your weight loss efforts more effective.

#1 Restrain Negative Thoughts

When you are attempting to make any key lifestyle transformation, it is important to hold back any negative thoughts, as to stay motivated you must think positively. Instead of looking in the mirror and thinking to yourself "Hmm...I look fat today", no matter what you feel deep down inside and see in the mirror, do the opposite "Hmm...I think I'm getting slimmer". The mind is an extremely influential instrument, and when focused on positive thoughts, can significantly facilitate your weight loss efforts.

#2 Eat 6 Small Meals per Day

It is well know to the public that consuming smaller portions more frequently (6 vs. 3 meals/day) is healthier and can speed up weight loss, but most do not practice this as they don't really recognize how important this is. Eating six smaller meals a day keeps your digestive system constantly working thus speeding up your metabolism and helping you burn more calories during the day. It also permits you to digest food more effectively, limits your stomach from stretching, and reduces the risk of overeating by eliminating hunger feelings .

#3 Chewing

Chewing more (at least 25 times before you swallow) and increasing the time it takes you to complete a meal will help weight loss in more ways than one. By implementing this, you are enhancing the digestive process, making it more efficient, and shrinking the chance of overeating because you will feel full quicker.

Weight Loss Secrets From Around the World

Are There Really Any Weight Loss Secrets?

No, not really. Every weight loss expert has one or a few pieces of advice that are incorrectly referred to as secrets, though. Most of them are offered in isolation, as if one or even a handful of strategies might be useful without considering other key factors.

It is no surprise that you get advice about exercise from fitness trainers, advice about supplements from supplement manufacturers, advice about nutrition from nutritionists, and advice about drugs from drug companies and medical doctors. Who has the best advice?

One way to evaluate weight loss tips is to see who uses them and where. A recent article in Readers Digest listed 19 such tips from around the world. The short version of that list is:

Serve a side of rice and beans (Brazil)
Fast once in awhile (Indonesia)
Eat at home more often (Poland)
Eat your breakfast (Germany)
Drive less, ride a bike more often (Netherlands)
Eat muesli (Switzerland)
Grow your own garden (Russia)
Use turmeric (Malaysia)
Drink rooibos tea (South Africa)
Eat pickles (Hungary)
Take a weekly family hike (Norway)
Do yoga (India)
Take a daily power nap (Japan)
Make lunch your biggest meal (Mexico)
Spice up your food (Thailand)
Back off of supersizing (United Kingdom)
Eat leisurely, with more conversation (France)
Take up Nordic walking (Finland)
Eat herring (Netherlands)

All of these strategies are beneficial in some way. It seems silly, however, to list any one strategy as representative of a particular country.

Best Weight Loss Solutions

As you can see, the list offers nothing new. No item is a secret. The main question, therefore, concerns which of these is the best for weight loss. My opinion is that, regardless of how well they work, the best ones are the ones that you will actually do. Making lunch your biggest meal may be too inconvenient. Taking up Nordic walking, even on a machine at the gym, may not be especially appealing. Spicing up meals may exceed your limit for foods that burn your palate. You may not even like pickles! Maybe you don't even eat where supersizing is an option, which is a good idea to begin with.

Weight Loss Tips Are Weak and Incomplete

Generally, national magazines offer weight loss advice that is superficial and weak. This list is no exception. Comprehensive advice that explains how to combine diet, exercise, supplements, lifestyle, hormone balance, and many other factors is much more valuable than any list.

The Most Important Components for All Weight Loss Programs

The subject of eating is, all by itself, comprised of multiple variables: what to eat, how much to eat, and when to eat. All of these probably have more impact on weight management than all of the items in the above list combined.

Exercise for fitness generally fails to address weight loss. Indeed, there is no general agreement on what fitness really is. For the purpose of weight loss, exercise must stop and reverse the loss of lean body mass (i.e., muscle mass) that accompanies aging after the age of 25.

Hormone imbalance, beginning with estrogen dominance (progesterone deficiency) and continuing to insulin resistance, leptin resistance, and low levels of testosterone and growth hormone, all of which are important in men and in women, is a key cause of weight gain.

The federal food pyramid is a big, bad joke for dieters. If you eat according to the recommendations of this pyramid, you will look like a pyramid.

Supplements can be very helpful. The best research shows how an ingredient in green tea, called EGCG, directs fat loss. Other top fat loss supplements include chromium, fish oil, and CLA.

These are just some of the more important factors that must be incorporated into a total weight loss program.

The Most Common Missing Weight Loss Secret

The list above comes close to the main missing ingredient in most weight loss programs, because it advocates daily naps. Stress and sleep deprivation are two of the most powerful causes of weight gain. Naps are certainly helpful. However, if the 90 percent or more of Americans who are sleep deprived would do what takes to get a full, restful night's sleep, the rate of obesity in the U.S. would slow down. Unrelieved stress acts like super-glue for hanging onto fat. Good sleep resets our ability to deal with daily stress. It even boosts nightly spikes in growth hormone levels, which has beneficial effects on fat metabolism and dozens of other aspects of human health.

Blast Belly Fat With These 8 Weight Loss Secrets and Keep it Off!

There are many weight loss tips and tricks that people use to blast belly fat, like blotting your pizza with a paper towel (not a bad ideas since it can save you 40-50 calories a slice). However, there are 8 weight loss secrets that those that have loss weight and kept it off swear by...

1. Eat Breakfast

  • Research show that 80 percent of those that lost 30lbs or more and kept it off ate breakfast every single morning.
  • Breakfast wakes up that metabolism for maximum calorie burn throughout the day.
  • Research also shows that dieters that skip breakfast tend to intake more calories throughout the day than those that eat breakfast. Most of those calories come toward the end of the day...double wammy!
  • Don't dismiss this secret...I made it number one for a reason!
2. Eat Every 3 Hours

  • Keeps your metabolism revved up for maximum calorie burn
  • Too many hours between meals can throw you body into conservation mode and slow down your fat burning.
  • Never lets you feel deprived or hungry, which is when we make bad food choices
  • 3 meals and 2 snacks should all include some source of protein
3.Know Your Number

  • This is the hardest for my clients to wrap their brain around. Everyone has an optimal caloric intake number for weight loss.
  • St. Mifflin Jeor formula is the gold standard in the dietitian world (you can Google it, input your info and get your magic number).
  • Many people try to cut as many calories when they are on a diet in hopes of faster result. Wrong! You run the risk of slowing down your metabolism.
  • However, eat too much and you run the risk of not creating a big enough caloric deficit for weight loss.
4.Have a Plan

  • Once you know that number, decide how you are going to divide up the calories throughout the day.
  • Example for a 1500 calorie day
  • Breakfast-300 cal
  • snack-150 cal
  • Lunch-400 cal
  • Snack-150 cal
  • Dinner-500 cal
  • This takes all the guess work out of it and keeps you from going over your caloric intake for the day.
5. Write It least for a week

  • Yes, keep a food journal of everything that goes in your mouth.
  • This makes you aware and keeps you accountable.
  • You would be surprise how fast a handful here and a handful there adds up.
6. Hit the Weights

  • After 25, we start to lose muscle as we age. The less muscle we have the slower our metabolism.
  • 1 lb of muscle burns about 30 calories at rest while 1 lb of fat burns 2
  • So, the more muscle you have the more calories you burn throughout the day...even when you are sleeping.
  • Do it circuit style- move from one exercise to the next without rest in between. This elevates you heart rate for a combined cardio and strength training session. Not only do you burn more calories this way, but you save time too!
  • This style of strength training also causes what we call "the after burn" affect. In short, you metabolism stays elevated for hours after your workout trying to restore itself to pre-workout state
7. H.I.T.T. Cardio!

  • H.I.T.T stands for high intensity interval training.
  • Sounds complicated but all you have to do is increase your intensity to the point where you can't carry on a conversation very minute or so for about 30-60 seconds on the your machine of choice (alternate btwn high intensity and recovery for about 25-30 minutes).
  • Why this is better...again, it creates "the after burn" affect. It leaves your metabolism at an elevated state for much longer that steady pace cardio .
8. Tell Someone

  • Last, but not least, confide in someone about your weight loss goals and journey.
  • You need a support system...someone to keep you accountable.
  • You need someone to push you out of bed for your AM workout when you don't want to and cheer you on when you reach goals!
I wish I could say #8...the magic weight loss pill, but I can't. I wish it were that easy. I takes a lifestyle change, determination and effort. Follow these 7 weight loss secrets and you will be well on your way to success.

There are some ways to burn more calories and lose weight and if you use the following weight loss secrets you might just find that getting into shape is easier then you think.

One thing you must remember is to get the right mind-set regarding your weight loss and diet intentions. It really isn't all about the dieting after all, but it is about taking charge of your life and the way you view food. You see, one of those weight loss secrets that rarely get talked about is the fact that healthy eating should not be a one time deal.

Eating nutritious, tasty foods should become a natural part of your own life.
