Lose up to 10 pounds in 30 days! You will look and feel better than ever before. No more forbidden foods or grueling exercise programs. The pounds melt away as you sleep.
Advertisements like this promote the latest fad diet for quick and easy weight loss. However, these diets limit your food selections and are usually based on testimonials rather than scientific studies. Americans spend billions of dollars each year on fad diets, but do any of them really work long-term? Are they healthy? Four teens describe the fad diets they have tried in order to control their weight.
JoAnne followed a low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet to lose weight when she was 15 years old. While following the diet, she had to avoid or limit bread, potatoes, pasta, bananas, breakfast cereals, carrots, fruit, candy, and desserts. She could eat meat and fat anytime, but could have only small amounts of some vegetables each day.
“I lost 35 pounds while I was on the diet,” JoAnne said. “I loved losing the weight, but I got sick of eating the same thing every day. When I stopped following it, I gained back all the weight I had lost, plus more.”
Promoters of this type of diet say that carbohydrates are bad because they cause weight gain. The truth about low-carbohydrate, high-protein diets is that the complex carbohydrates found in whole grains, fruits, and vegetables are an important source of energy for your body. Many foods high in protein are also high in saturated fat, which can raise your blood cholesterol levels. This type of fad diet can also cause dehydration, headaches, bad breath, nausea, dizziness, and weakness. Read More
Diet pills and supplements can promote weight loss, but they also can carry big health risks. Don’t be dazzled by ads promising miracles.
If you’ve ever wished you could lose a few–or many–pounds in a fast and easy way, chances are you’ve paid attention to headlines like these in advertisements seen everywhere these days. Even some serious publications run full-page ads that promise, with lots of exclamation marks, that a company’s pills, drinks, or supplements will make your extra pounds miraculously melt away.
You Will Lose Weight – GUARANTEED!
Teens seem particularly vulnerable to such ads. They can be influenced by their own self-image–and sometimes subtly by peers, parents, and coaches–to lose weight in order to look good, perform better, or be more popular.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention conducted a study of 11,631 high school students and found that more than 43 percent of the girls surveyed said they were “on a diet.” The most common dieting methods used were skipping meals, induced vomiting after eating, and taking diet pills. Diet pills can be effective in helping some people lose weight, but are they right for you?
Straight from the Supermarket
Over-the-counter weight-loss drugs such as Acutrim and Dexatrim contain phenyl-propanolamine (PPA), an appetite suppressant that affects the central nervous system. When combined with changes in eating habits and exercise, PPA can help people lose weight. However, the results are temporary and should only be used for the short term (not more than three weeks) until new eating habits are established. Read More
Uniting body, mind, and spirit in the art of drawing
Being: the Meaning of Yoga
Taken from the Sanskrit, the word yoga means union, and every form of yoga has as its fundamental intention to bring together body, mind, and spirit as one unit in the present moment. As in all Eastern inner arts, the supreme goal of this endeavor is the bliss of being, as opposed to the toil of doing. It is the experience of the eternal, of the timeless, of the unity underlying all things, and it is believed to be achieved whenever body, mind, and spirit are one.
Yoga quite literally means “yoking the mind,” historically represented by a graphic image of oxen with their yokes, ready to work under guidance of their master. It is an image that captures the essence of the task at hand in drawing, which is to bring the powerful potential of thinking mind’s awareness into a supporting role for the body. In yoga, balance is essential, and the performance of the body in movement or posture cannot be accomplished without the mind’s full presence. In yoga, the body is master, and mind, the valuable servant.
My own metaphor is that of a powerful stallion running wild. That is our Logical Mind, the yang, or assertive, thinking part of us. A wonderful animal, but running wild it does us little good and likewise scatters its own energy. In yoga, we use our Body Mind, the yin, or receptive part of us, to corral the fiery stallion of Logical Mind, to bring it into an awareness of how the body feels. Body and mind come together, and relationship can begin, fostering the union that releases spirit into the bliss of being. Read More
Fitness trends come and go, but after 6,000 years yoga is still going strong. No wonder. When practiced correctly and consistently, yoga tunes up your body and sharpens your mind. Just ask Jill Winger.
The Portland, Oregon, high school sophomore is involved in two sports year-round and maintains a 4.0 grade point average. Some credit, she says, goes to the yoga classes she attends twice a week.
“Yoga helps me release tension and keeps me in shape to do sports,” says Jill. “I’m much more limber and relaxed.” Yoga looks easy, but don’t be fooled. “It’s not your typical workout. When I think about a workout, I think about breathing hard and running so fast at track that you feel like you’re going to faint. Yoga is different. It really works your muscles and makes you stronger.”
Ready, Set, Pose!
Yoga involves the body, the breath, and the mind. From the ancient Sanskrit language, the word “yoga” means union or joining ether. Yoga unites your mind with your body, gets you in touch with your emotions, and helps you stretch away the tensions of daily life.
There are many different approaches to yoga. Most focus on meditation and on holding specific postures. Hatha yoga, for example, is based on a series of poses, breathing, and relaxation. Indian folklore says there are more than 840,000 poses or “asanas.” But don’t worry–you don’t have to learn them all to get the benefits of doing yoga! A typical yoga class will have a warm-up or breathing and stretching exercises; then the participants slowly move from one posture to the next. Some yoga poses are held statue-like. Others involve jumping and movements that build endurance and coordination.
Besides developing strength and stamina, regular yoga practice also lowers body fat levels, improves circulation, and bolsters the immune system. Not bad for an ancient discipline that needs no special equipment, little space, and can be done alone or with friends at any time. Read More

People can improve their food habits by eating fresh fruits and vegetables and foods low in fat. They will likely start to lose weight after starting such a diet and focus should be on eating nutritious foods for health reasons, not losing weight. Exercise should be treated the same way.
Think for a minute of the foods you would eat if you were interested only in health. Weight loss is of no more interest to you than a primary election for Recorder of Deeds.
What would top your shopping list?
WORLD’S HEALTHIEST STUFF
First, think green, leafy and low-to-the-ground, like cabbage, kale, collards, cilantro, romaine and their kin. That’s because they’re the most concentrated source of the vitamins and minerals most people need more of for peak health.
Purely by coincidence, they are virtually free of calories and fat.
Then you’d load up on other vegetables – everything from delicate snow peas to big burly pumpkins. They also deliver the big doses of vitamins, with just a few silly specks of fat. Read More
