Lose a pound: Manifest a 4-pound reduction!

ART feather nails.jpgHere’s a riddle from Our Lady of Weight Loss, the patron saint of permanent fat removal!
Which weighs more?
A pound of feathers; or a pound of nails?

A pound is a pound, folks!
Unless, of course, you’re talking about your knees!
A recent study that highlights research done at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, published in the journal Arthritis & Rheumatism, found that for overweight or obese adults with osteoarthritis of the knee, losing a pound could result in a 4-pound reduction in pressure placed on the knee joint.
“Our results indicate that each pound of weight lost will result in a 4-fold reduction in the load exerted on the knee per step during daily activities,” wrote lead researcher Dr. Stephen P. Messier with his colleagues. “Accumulated over thousands of steps per day, a reduction of this magnitude would appear to be clinically meaningful.
“The accumulated reduction in knee load for a 1-pound loss in weight would be more than 4,800 pounds per mile walked,” noted Messier in a press release. “For people losing 10 pounds, each knee would be subjected to 48,000 pounds less in compressive load per mile walked.”
Food for Thought:
There you have it! Imagine just for a moment, osteoarthritis or not, just how much pressure that excess weight that you are carrying around is putting on your knees!
If you can’t lose weight for yourself, do it for your body!

Quiz: Are YOU a food addict?
What if weight loss were no longer an issue?

A Reduction Sauce of Undying Love: Inspired by Tori and Dean?

Tori Spelling recently celebrated her 36th birthday and her husband, Dean McDermott, surprised her with a new tattoo featuring a large Koi fish symbolizing Tori, with three baby Koi (the children), and a spray of peonies, which stand for health and prosperity, as well as the word “forever” … forever etched into his skin.
Remembering that true love is an act of will, more about seeking to meet your beloved’s need than a clever display (literally, in this case) of affection, and upon reflecting on just how befuddled I would be if my husband of twenty-something years showed up all Koi’ed-up for my birthday, I decided to put together a list of things that one might do to express their undying love on a birthday and/or on any other day.
Fill Up on Love:
A Reduction Sauce of Love: Minus the Fluff

Listen to the worries and the joys.
Smile while looking into your beloved’s eyes.
Respect each other.
Share your dreams and values.
Talk to each other … and then
Walk the talk together.
Snuggle, spoon, hold hands and hug.
Have fun and laugh.
Be faithful.
Trust.
Just be there.
Totally present … the best present!
Optional: A Dash of Flash
A tangible shiny gift always appreciated.

3 Eat Smart Tips: No-Diet Way to Weigh Less

janice before-after postcard copy.jpgThere are so many things to weigh and measure when it comes to permanent weight loss and food is not the only one! This Beliefnet blogger has got some weight loss tips for you that will not only curl your hair, but maybe your toes too with hope-filled happiness.
It’s not just about the food.
There are external factors at play that can influence the way you eat, the way you burn and the way you weigh!!
1. QUIET on the set! Adults eat and drink more when there is background noise! The louder and faster the noise, sometimes called music, the more you will eat! And the slower, more romantic music, the longer you’ll stay at the table and eat. Either way, quiet on the set!!!
2. LIGHTS, camera, action! Bright, fluorescent lights will also affect the speed at which you ingest your tasty tidbits. So, soft lights please, or candle light.
3. MASTICATE your food! Here’s a “faToid” that you are gonna’ love! When you chew your food (masticate: to chew), your saliva releases an enzyme call Amylase that turns carbs to fuel, rather than storing them as fat. And chewing your food well lessens the amount of air that you take in, which lessens the amount of bloat!
There you have it, straight from the Our Lady of Weight Loss benchPress
Three easy steps to follow that will, at the end, of the day leave you calm, happy and lighter!
