Why Alcohol Makes You Fat?

Posted by Sandeep Kumar on December 12, 2010

First of all, it is necessary for anyone concerned about the connection between alcohol and extra body weight to accept the fact that alcohol intake can contribute to making us fat. It’s a fact of life that can only be eliminated by taking alcohol from our lives altogether.

alcohol-makes-you-fatIt’s possible to control the weight gain and the additional body fat with exercise and a healthy diet. But drinking alcoholic beverages will make the “battle of the bulge” more difficult. Why, you may ask?

The primary reason is that the alcoholic drinks we consume have a lot of sugar in them. This increases our overall calorie intake. In addition, sugar turns to fat more quickly than some other edible items. This quick-forming fat stays with us in the belly area, as well as on the hips and this. Some people have found that the extra fat appears on the underside of the arms as well.

Each person reacts differently to this sugar/fat connection, so the extra weight won’t always appear on the belly. It’s certainly common enough for people to believe that drinking beer and liquor give us a “beer belly.” This isn’t always true, but it happens often enough to make it an issue. One of the reasons is that the male of the human species naturally tends to add body fat in the belly area. Men who consume alcohol regularly are almost ensuring that the amount of fat on their bellies will increase. Women however gather their extra fat in and around the hips and upper thighs. So, women who consume alcohol may see extra weight in those areas.

One of the scientific facts (frustrating for drinkers) is that the sugar and calorie factor in alcohol is there even though drinking such beverages doesn’t stop us from being hungry. Therefore, any drinking we do adds sugar and calories in addition to what we get from eating. We may feel “full” for awhile after drinking but our bodies will still signal us that it is time to eat.

The key to solving this alcohol/fat problem is to drink less alcohol. Keeping the intake of alcoholic beverages to a minimum will help control that extra body fat. A general guideline states that enjoying one or two drinks during the day probably won’t create a fat problem. Drinking too much alcohol certainly will add extra fat weight to the body.

People who need to be on a restricted-calorie diet should definitely pay attention to the amount of alcohol they drink. What happens with alcohol does not happen with food that is eaten. The calories in alcohol go directly to the rest of the body because alcohol passes on to the body without being digested as food is. Since it goes immediately to the body it needs to be used up or burned by activity immediately. Otherwise it will settle into the parts of the body that are natural fat storehouses for each individual. Alcohol is an immediate energy source for the body but in a short time it becomes a source of extra fat.

How to Get Rid of Double Chin?

Posted by Sandeep Kumar on December 10, 2010

People who want to lose weight can focus on a lot of different parts of the body. In recent years, trainers and celebrities have produced dozens of programs for weight loss and weight reduction. These often concentrate on the waist, the hips, the abs or some other part of the human anatomy.

Few plans look closely at the double chin, which is simply a deposit of extra fat that is unsightly and uncomfortable. Some people develop a double chin as they age because they inherited the tendency from parents and grandparents. Simply put, double chin can be hereditary. Others might see a double chin appearing gradually as they gain weight over the entire body.

Exercise, Concentrate
Of course, you might be able to reduce or eliminate that double chin by following a general weight-loss program. With proper diet and proper exercise you might be able to lose extra pounds and eliminate that heavy deposit under your chin. Information about losing a double chin often begins with the simple idea of eating a bit less, every day. Over a period of time your body will use the extra fat or eliminate it. Your double chin may well disappear along with extra weight from other places.

You can also reduce your double chin or get rid of it altogether with specific exercises for this section of the body. There is one muscle in this area that should be exercised as part of any program to lose a double chin. The muscle has the unlikely name “platysma.” If you open your mouth as widely as you can, stretch the lower lip and stretch the jaw, you may be able to tighten the chin area.

Attacking the Double Chin
Get Rid of Double ChinSome people resort to liposuction to remove a double chin. This method has been used for years. Doctors simple suck the fat from under the skin. However, this method is not completely free of problems. In addition, you might pay a lot of money to have fat taken from under the chin and then see the same condition develop in a matter of months. If you don’t change your eating and exercising habits the “fix” will be temporary. If medical procedures are on list of options, talk with your doctor about a chin-wrap process.

You may be better off using some of the suggested exercises for sagging facial muscles. A combination of diet, physical exercise, chin-and-jaw exercises and gentle massage can go a long way toward eliminating the double chin. Put some pressure on the muscles of the chin and massage them a few times each day. Change your hand position occasionally to get the maximum effect.

How To Get Rid Of Overeating?

Posted by Sandeep Kumar on December 8, 2010

It is tempting to just say: Get rid of overeating by eating less. For some of us this may be possible. For others, eating less may be the most difficult thing they ever do. In the past, people who ate a lot and became obese were thought to be gluttons. But most of the time they weren’t looked upon as people with a serious problem.

In recent years, overeating has joined a few other maladies as serious issues. The list includes anorexia and bulimia. These are eating disorders, yes, but they are now considered behavioral /psychological disorders. Eating far too much or far too little may well be a symptom of other issues that should be addressed.

The Factors
The ingredients in the mix that is overeating include triggers from the brain, chemistry within the body, emotional problems and issues with social contacts. If some or all of these work in combination we may overeat as a way to compensate or self-medicate.

OvereatingWe can get rid of some instances of overeating by changing our habits. For example, some people feel that they must eat a snack at certain times. If we can change our habit so that, when this time arrives, we focus on something other than food we gradually turn to the new activity. Overeating is often triggered by starting with sugar-filled pastries or similar foods. If we can avoid sweets and foods that are high in carbohydrates we might be able to eliminate some or all of our overeating episodes.

If you normally take lunch or snacks to work with you, start substituting different types of food immediately. Rather than taking candy bars, pastries and other sweets, eliminate the dessert item. Take fruit instead. This will help curb the urge to eat more and more.

Treatment Needed
Though we can go a long way toward eliminating some of the overeating issues we face, there are times when the emotional and mental situation is so deeply ingrained we need help. First of all we have to address the emotional factors. Changing our daily habits is just one small part of this. In addition to having our meals in one place every day and substituting vegetables and fruit for sweets and snacks, we also need to eat more slowly, so that the activity of eating is not so compulsive. Instead, it satisfies a real need for fuel.

We should also eliminate the types of food that contribute to overeating. For instance, we could no longer keep chips, candy, cookies etc. in the home. We need to get rid of the things that tempt us. When the time comes for a “snack” we substitute other, healthier foods in small portions or have no snack at all.

To get rid of overeating, we may need to set small objectives or goals. Eat one less snack food each day and increase this gradually. We may need to change our shopping habits. Go the grocery store right after a regular meal. Shop when you are not hungry. Finally, find others who are struggling with the same problem and join a support group.

How To Get Rid Of Neck Fat?

Posted by Sandeep Kumar on December 7, 2010

There are good diet plans and exercise programs for getting rid of extra weight, no matter where it is on the body. We all know about using nutrition and aerobic exercise to get rid of fat around the midsection or on the hips. But what about losing that extra, unsightly fat around the neck and in that general area?

Don’t think this is going to be easy or quick. Neck fat may be a “smaller” problem but it may still contribute to health problems and to embarrassment or insecurity when we go out in public. You’ll have to start a good fat-loss program and stick with it, just as you would any other weight-loss or lifestyle plan. *Before we look at some tips and techniques, you may want to talk with your doctor about neck fat to make sure your extra fat in that area is not the result of an illness or other health condition.

Set Your Mind
As with any weight-loss program or change in lifestyle or habits, you should set your mind on your goal. Be patient and be a bit stubborn. Make sure you believe you can achieve what you want. Give the fat-loss plan some time every day and set a realistic goal for loss each week, month etc.

Neck FatStart exercising. This doesn’t mean just walking slowly from one end of the house to another. You need to get the heart working and get the blood circulating. This is the way to burn the calories you take in with your food and drink. There are a number of different programs designed for “cardio” workouts. Talk with friends and family members, your doctor or an exercise/workout professional to find the right one for you.

It’s the Neck!
Focus on neck movements, such as gently tilting the neck from side to side and from front to back. Do this for a few minutes two or three times each day. Be sure to continue this easy exercise even after you start to see neck fat disappearing. Add neck rotation but do it gently and slowly. Move your head and neck in small circles and widen the circular movement gradually. Do it again with rotations in the opposite direction. Do this at two or three different times each day, for a couple of minutes.

In addition to neck exercises and cardio exercises, make a few changes in your diet. Add fruits and vegetables, and plenty of water. Drink fruit juices that are unsweetened rather than alcoholic beverages or soft drinks. Cut down on pastries and foods high in sugar. This should help you lose body fat in other places as well.

Finally, exercise your jaw and chin with sugarless gum or mimic chewing several times a day. This should help tighten skin around the neck and jaw. Drink plenty of water to help wash away the toxins in your body. Losing neck fat requires patience and focus, just like any other weight loss program.
