You have to first forget about the question of whether it is effective for losing weight or even for keeping weight off. It has been shown to do both. You have to consider the risks. First off, the diet promotes heart disease (consider what is on the menu -- lots of high fat, high cholesterol foods). There is also potential loss of bone, and the potential for people with liver and kidney problems to have trouble with the high amounts of protein in an Atikins-type diet. Consider, too that the body needs a minimum of carbohydrates for efficient and healthy functioning -- about 150 grams daily. Below that, normal metabolic activity is disrupted.The brain needs glucose to work correctly, and it takes a long time to break down fat and protein to get to the brain. They are inefficient fuel sources. Carbohydrates, especially in the form of vegetables, grains, and fruits, are more efficiently converted to glucose. This is much more indicative of early man's eating pattern than eating only protein, and we haven't changed all that much physiologically. In other words, we are more of a carb-eating species than a protein-eating species. Also, keep in mind that this diet is based on the idea that most people eat too many carbs. This is probably true, but no one has shown, in any studies, that anything magical is going on with Atkins other than calorie restriction. This diet is very strict in terms of number of calories eaten, and in the end it's not fat, it's not protein, it's not carbs, it's calories that make you lose or gain weight. You can lose weight on anything that helps you to eat less, but that doesn't mean it's good for you. As a nutritionist, I would advise that you consider eating a more healthful, balanced diet and combine this with a sound exercise program. Atkins is not meant to be done long-term, and let's face it -- at some point, you will want to eat carbs. When you do, you will just rebound and then some.

When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together. If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If you don't eat wheat then you don't eat all those sticky, fatty goey cakes, you don't eat junk food, and you don't eat biscuits. But your diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising, start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack, disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target your problem areas for men and women. It's not necessarily to become a bodybuilder or even join a gym - a couple of dumbbells will help you to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).

Yes!. Atkins paintings for a real truth. I have misplaced one hundred kilos in view that. The 1st two weeks you are going to lose approximately 10 to 30 kilos. If you're fairly over weight, then you are going to see rapid outcome very quickly. HOLLA BACK!

Totty Originally Answered: I think I have rosacea, please give me advice how to treat it, details?
There are several reasons why a person might have facial redness. Here are just a few possibilities: - genetics / hormones - rosacea - hyperpyrexia - lupus - sun sensitivity - medication induced For an accurate, professional diagnosis consult a certified dermatologist. Living with rosacea is about educating yourself, learning & understanding your own personal triggers, and adjusting your lifestyle accordingly. However, whether you have rosacea or not, there's certainly ways to keep some facial redness under control and less noticeable. You can try increasing your omega 3 fatty acids by taking supplements such as Evening Primrose Oil, fish oils, etc… And by eating walnuts, hazelnuts, or pecan nuts (if you’re not allergic) Omega 3’s aid in proper digestion and healthier skin. Ground Fennel seeds and Flax seeds, as well as Flax seed Oil supplements (omega 3’s) also act as anti-inflammatories. (reduce redness) Try increasing your intake of vitamin D through supplements (1000 – 4000 IU/day) and B-complex to aid in healthier skin and maintaining a healthier immune system. Drink more water and avoid all alcohol & caffeine products (coffee, tea, pop, etc..) Alcohol & caffeine will actually dehydrate your skin. Water re-hydrates from the inside out. As well, alcohol is generally a known trigger for most rosacea people. Neutrogena makes an excellent moisturizer, simply called "Moisture". It's oil-free, fragrance-free, alcohol-free and they have a type that is specifically made for sensitive skin. There are products you can buy that are specifically made to help reduce facial redness: - There is a face cream called ROSACURE which is an anti-redness cream formulated for rosacea-prone skin types. - Guinot has a face cream called RED LOGIC which claims to neutralize the appearance of red blood vessels. - LaTherapie Paris has a fortifying skin cream that is supposed to help soften high colour (reduce redness) I know there are other brands and products that may be similar. You need to find the one that works best with your skin and your body chemistry. Here are a few other helpful, (and natural) hints for a better complexion for a lifetime: - avoid any products with alcohol (internally or externally) Alcohol can burn & irritate sensitive or inflamed skin tissue. - only use gentle, fragrance-free, oil-free, alcohol-free cleansers on your face - avoid any scented soaps and creams (scents & fragrances can aggravate inflamed skin) - have a daily facial cleansing routine (2x daily, morning & night. Do not scrub as this will irritate the skin) Also, cleanse after exercise to remove excess oils, dirt & sweat. - try a dairy milk face-soak during a flare-up (as long as you're not allergic) The dairy milk helps to balance the natural PH of the skin - try using face lotion containing certified green algae or aloe vera gel (use lotions, not creams, as lotion is more gentle on the skin and absorbs more easily) - try using pure tea tree oil for pimples & blemishes. Apply with a q-tip directly to each individual pimple or blemish. - avoid extended periods in direct sun (use sunblock with 15 - 30 spf) - avoid excessive cold weather or excessive windy situations (both can actually burn & further irritate sensitive or inflamed skin) - drink pure green tea (matcha), rose hip tea, and fennel tea (great antioxidants) - eat foods high in anti-oxidants; such as blueberries, cranberries, purple grapes, broccoli, etc.. - avoid spicy foods, greasy foods, and foods with a high refined-sugar content. - find out what your own personal food "triggers" are and avoid them so you can avoid flare-ups of redness and acne. (many people find food with histamines aggravate the redness) - avoid hot things. Hot weather, hot showers & hot tubs, hot drinks (the heat will dilate blood vessels causing more redness) - try to get at least 7 - 8 hours of sleep each night (aids in the healing processes of the body) - try to cut down on stress (stress can magnify a multitude of conditions) Check out the sites below for the most current, up-to-date information regarding facial redness...
