Obese couple

A study was done in South Africa that showed seven out of ten woman and four out of ten men are considered overweight or obese. This means that just in South Africa, 42% of women and 13.5% of men are overweight, that’s almost half of South African adults. Survey shows that South Africans (both adults and children) are amongst the world’s heaviest people, that South Africans are slowly eating themselves to death.

More research has shown that 49% of South Africans never do any form of exercising while 71% of them have never even attempted to diet in order to lose weight. Even more disturbing, is that 17% of children under the age of ten are overweight and heading towards obesity. With so many weight loss programs and diet available today, there really is no excuse anymore (aside from medical reasons) for being overweight or obese. These days, there are so many weight loss programs choose from, people can even afford to be a little bit picky.

One such program is called a Fat Loss Factor. Which of course proms people to ask what is the fat loss factor diet all about? Simply put, the program founded by Doctor Charles Livingstone, a qualified wellness practitioner with a good reputation in the health and fitness industry. As with most programs, it takes twelve weeks to complete the program, and of course is broken up into sections. Continue reading

multi-ethnic group of young women
Who would have thought that the color of our skin is almost considered a fashion accessory these days? As crazy as that sounds, it’s true. Last year (2014) and the year before, having a glowing, golden tan was considered all the rage. Twenty fourteen was the year for bronzing in the sun, and for those who could not obtained a golden tan in the usual way, opted for fake tans and cosmetic bronzing products.

However, more frequently than not, having a pale or white skin seems to be coming back into “fashion”. And because of this, girls (and some men) are looking for ways to achieve paler skin. There are many ways to lighten your skin. Whether you choose to do it with more natural products at home or whether you choose to use commercially produced products, it’s not that difficult to do.

fight obesityEverybody knows how difficult it is to lose weight, especially for woman. Men seem to lose weight a lot easier than women do, but that has something to do with their high testosterone levels. And of course women’s bodies are designed to hold onto body fat, and the reason for this can be directly linked to pregnancy. The reason why woman’s body holds onto fat is to store fat in case of pregnancy.

So it comes as no surprise that women are constantly looking online for websites that give information on how to lose weight. The problem comes in when looking for a program that actually works, and delivers on all its claims. Unfortunately, women (at least these days anyway) are basically hardwired to look for anything that offers or promises things like “quick and easy” or “fast and effective”. Most of us live extremely fast paced lifestyles, and simply do not have time for complicated menus, shopping for special foods to eat on a specialty diet or complicated workout programs. The fast fixes what most of us are looking for. Continue reading

woman choosing alkaline foodThese days, a lot of people are becoming more health-conscious. There are taking care of themselves a lot better, going to the gym more frequently and eating healthier diets. A lot of people even going so far as to have their blood tested (if they do not know their blood types) and following diets that are more suited to their particular blood type. These kinds of diets are generally tend to lean more towards organic type foods or alkaline foods.

Most people don’t really care what their blood type is, or whether or not they are following a diet plan best suited for the blood type. More often than not, people are just simply trying to live cleaner, healthier lifestyles. There are a lot of ways to go about doing this, and if you are interested and haven’t yet started a cleaner, more healthy lifestyle, then here are some tips and advice on how to go about doing that.

First off, understanding what “clean” eating means will make it easier for anyone to follow. Eating clean means as far as possible, trying to eat organic food. This can be quite expensive for most people, so an alternate way of eating clean is to try and include as many vegetables in their diet as far as possible, even going so far as to eating as many of them as possible raw. Eating fresh fruit regularly is also part of eating clean. When it comes to protein, again, organic meat can be a bit pricy and can blow most people’s monthly food budget way over the line.

how to approach a womanConsidering we live in such an advanced technical age you would think that most men would make use of the Internet to gain some insight and knowledge when it comes to women. Clearly this is not the case since there are still so many guys out there who are literally clueless about how to go about either approaching a woman, chatting to one or trying to get a telephone number or date. The Internet is everywhere these days, even on our cell phones so there really is no excuse, yet those guys do still exist.

Right, so if you are one of those guys it seems to even be completely invisible to women or can’t understand why women are constantly turning you down, then the following tips might be of some use. You might be surprised that might be something as simple or small as the way you carry yourself or the way you dress. Continue reading

venus workout push upsIt is a fact that more than half the population of the world’s overweight or obese. Every single person knows at least one person who is either overweight or obese who is desperate to lose weight, and has probably tried and failed several diets. There’s nothing more disheartening than being excited to try a new diet program or workout program, thinking you’re going to make at this time, only to fail again. There is the secret about weight loss programs that most people don’t seem to know about, but is in fact glaringly obvious, but will get to that in a moment. In the meantime, check out the Venus factor. This program (and one other) works hand-in-hand with this secret that nobody seems to know about.

And the secret is that most diet programs and workout programs are doomed to fail because most of them have at least one design flaw, but a lot of them have more than one. The reason why most people fail at these diets and wind up cheating in inevitably, is because of this design flaw. Most diets or programs, make the fatal mistake of eliminating key food groups completely from their diet for however long the program runs. What almost every program fails to do is explain how and what to do once the program has run its course. Inevitably, dieters will return to their normal way of eating once you have completed the program. And this is where every diet fails because immediately the dieter will begin to put weight on again.

Usually the food group labelled “bad for you”, is carbohydrates. Now a lot of diet programs exclude fat and sugar as well, while others include dairy to that list. The problem with eliminating food groups, is that while they might make you lose weight now, as soon as you finish the program you are going to continue life as usual, which means reintroducing all the exclude food groups back into your diet.

wealthy weight loss tipsWhen it comes to weight loss, the first thing anybody needs to do is first determine whether or not you are only slightly overweight, very overweight or obese. The reason for this is because not only are there so many different weight loss programs available today, they are also, or can be, extremely expensive. So determining how overweight you are in the first place, will help you figure out whether or not you even need a weight loss program to begin with. You might find that you do not need to invest in any kind of weight loss program at all, because with a few simple changes to your lifestyle and your diet, you can easily get rid of those few extra pounds on your own. On the other hand if you are a little bit overweight or obese, then it might be prudent to a) see your Doctor and b) begin looking for a healthy weight loss program that is best suited to you.

If you find that you might have to benefit from a weight loss program, then check out a few review pages on different programs that interest you before committing to that purchase. One such program is to check out the cruise control diet reviews page as well as this seems to be a very popular weight loss program these days. Reading review pages before making a purchase is not only smart, but allows you to do a little bit of research about that particular program while reading comments from people who have used the program and see what they think of it.

When it comes to weight loss or fat loss programs, the check is finding the few gems in the pile, so to speak. The fact is, about 90% of weight loss programs available online are not 100% balanced and don’t all have a follow-up maintenance program. The great deal of these programs are also not sustainable over long periods of time, therefore making them impractical, sometimes expensive, extremely difficult follow and therefore the main reason why most people fail to complete the program and therefore fail to lose weight. Red flags to look for are programs that claim unrealistic weight loss time-frames, require you to eliminate entire food groups from your diet and do not have follow-up maintenance plans.

singing-method-home-lessonshttp://superiorsingingmethodreviewzone.com/ : I grew up wanting to be a lot of things in my life and one of them was to be a singer. The problem with me and singing, and this is probably true for a lot of people, is the confidence issue. We lack confidence in ourselves and our singing ability and we worry about what people are going to think say. In other words, we fear negative feedback, so we don’t sing in public. Does this sound familiar to you? Have you always wanted to be able to sing with confidence and ease? Have you ever wanted to sing knowing you really can sing and people really like to listen to you? Then you are in the right place.

The superior singing method has been designed especially for people like us and for people who actually con sing all. So imagine just for a minute, if the program out there designed to take somebody was voice sounds more like nails on a chalkboard or a cat with its tail caught in the door, and turn them into confident, good singers, they just think what it can do for you. I mean this program has been designed to teach you how to use your voice in ways that opera singers do with the kind of ease that comes as simple and as easy as breathing. To be able to sing with that kind of ease and confidence, would be awesome.

This program is designed to teach you things like range. You’ll be able to hit any note regardless of how high or low it is, of course taking into account your natural vocal abilities and your sex, your range will go from let’s say three or four all out to anything between an eight or 10 depending on how well you study and practice, and how often. But it doesn’t stop with range. It teaches you how to control your voice as well which means no more shaky quivering notes and cracking voices in the middle of a word in a song, so let’s look a frog croaking and more like silky soprano. Let’s not forget of course vocal agility. Give a little to stay on pitch and sing with ease and the correct rhythm is also within your grasp with this program. Naturally of course we want power when we sing. Just imagine for a moment that scene in the movie Sister Act where Whoopi Goldberg takes this diminutive nun and teaches her, more like forces her, to take the tiny little mouse voice and transforms her into this powerhouse of sound. That is exactly singer yourself. Continue reading

cinnamon-house-captures-the-beauty-of-wildernessWilderness is aptly named because it looks completely wild, untamed, but stunningly beautiful all at the same time. Affordable wilderness accommodation is exactly the same! There are so many types of accommodations available all year round, it is very difficult to decide where to stay. My suggestion is to collect the brochures of all the different camping sites, hotels, bed and breakfasts, self-catering, spa style guesthouses, regular guest houses and everything in between and simply start with the one on top and work your way through your brochure collection until you have eventually stayed at them all. This is what I would do!

Some of the prettiest self-catering houses and guest houses are the ones that are almost hidden away. They are tucked away off the main road, further into the bush. One such lovely gem is a small group of self-catering guest houses that can accommodate from as few as two people up to 12 people. They are built out of wood and are high up on stilts overlooking the dark green forest and the pool. The largest of these houses has its very own private fire pit which is massive. Yu can even cook in this pit. The houses come fully equipped with kitchens and bathrooms and all the bedrooms have ample bedding.

Another adorable place is a small guest house painted the prettiest shade of sunshine yellow with white gingerbread trim. All the rooms have their own private balcony with a table and chairs on it overlooking the stunning garden. There is a lovely walkway that leads to all the rooms from the main house. In the main house you can sit in the cossy lounging area and enjoy a sherry in the evening before or after dinner at one of the many wonderful restaurants in the area. Continue reading

the-adonis-bodyWe live in a very enlightened era, we have seen agricultural, industrial and technological revolutions.  None have lasted quite so much as the age of reason, when mathematical algorithms and measures spoke to the society that heralded the time as the age of reason.  Davinci expressed perfection in his Vitruvian man, a drawing we have all seen and recognize as art, but we may not realize the significance of the piece.  The drawing represents the golden ratio, an algebraic standard of excellence and perfection.  Not just through art, but within the male form as well.  It is not simply the symmetry and the look that makes it so, it is also the most prime state a man’s body could ever hope to achieve.  Think of the statue of David.  It too, was created using the golden ratio.  Small wonder that it is still considered the optimal body to have all this time later.  How do you improve perfection?

People judge someone within the first few minutes of meeting them.  We cannot display our personality on our clothing, so the only thing anyone can really use to judge, is how we look and how we speak.  Women in particular are drawn to men within the golden ratio because it’s pre-programmed into a woman, to seek out the best possible male to give her strong and healthy offspring.  They can tell even at first glance whether a man is in his prime or not, and they gravitate to men who look the healthiest.  Adonis Golden Ratio is a system that utilizes the equation to it’s fullest potential, giving men with every body type the ability to live in the prime of their lives.  Magazines like Cosmopolitan, popular with women all over the world, have polled their readers to find out what ladies love in a man.  This body type wins over all others every time.

Though men’s magazines would have you believe that bulky is better, and drinking protein shakes and taking supplements are the key to fitness and gaining the love of the ladies, it is not on target at all.  It seems a bit of a dichotomy that what women really want is not hard to see or find, yet men get targeted through weight loss and muscle building programs to bulk up for success.  Interestingly enough, the men who the women preferred the most, living in the golden ratio, were proven to have the highest levels of testosterone, energy, and overall general good health.  It would seem that women can sense this without actually knowing for sure, and they go for that body type without fail, and without even understanding why.  It is much harder to sculpt lean muscle than it is to bulk up, so the question remains, how to become lean and muscular if you’re so far from the golden ratio?

young woman receiving magnetic textIn this magnificent day and age, everyone including kids have cell phones. Technology is taking over everything and that goes for getting to know people and dating too. Creepy! That aside, you are no doubt one of the few blokes out there that has always seemed to be out of luck when it comes to the fairer sex. You can’t seem to get them to talk to you or if you do, you get no further than that. So let us assume you can get a girls number, but you have no clue how to proceed. This should be a bit of help for you then.

People are using this hip new term called magnetic messaging and all it means is texting. Yup, nothing mysterious here, just texting. But the trick is knowing how to use it now, isn’t it? Yeah, yeah, texting is easy. Even little kids can do it, but clearly you still need a lesson or two in how to use it to your advantage with women, or you would not be reading this. In fact, maybe you could take a couple of pages out of the younger kids’ book because they seem to have no trouble getting girls to talk to them via texting or getting a date. Kidding! Actually no, not kidding or you would not be looking for help on this department. This is where you have to learn how to join the social network and the actual social scene all at the same time. It’s time to learn and school is in!

This is where this article comes in. Teaching you how to communicate, and possible procreate, with a human woman. So if you are not all that savvy with the ladies, here we go. Magnetic messaging is the skilful, artful and very, very clever technique of our age used for communication. The unfortunate side effect is that people become socially inept because they rely solely on this technology and technique, therefore men become drooling idiots around women who seem to be able to channel their inner caveman with intelligent phrases like “Urrrghuh!” and “mmbllinhgghmm!” Sexy right? Yeah and this is why they don’t get the girl. If this is you, then keep reading. Keep reading if you are morbidly interested in your male comrades’ social instability with women, and a free lesson.

acnenomorecleanIt is quite strange how some people are blessed with natural healthy skin while others suffer from skin imperfections and in some cases develop acne. The word acne is unpleasant to say and leaves a bitter taste on the tongue. This is especially true when using it when speaking about your own skins condition. You suddenly start having spots, bumps and red skin areas. People with sensitive skin are alot more susecptible to developing acne and so it becomes very important that you take great care of your skin. Avoiding an outbreak of spots, bumps and sore skin is your mission. The number one way to deal with acne is by choosing a natural treatment method. The acnenomore program is a natural holistic methos that does not use any form of chemicals or creams or medications. Since its launch, there have been an overwhelming amount of positive acne no more reviews.

Following a natural method of treating acne is preferable because it is sustainable, easy to follow, less expensive and more likely to provide a better skin improvement result. If you don’t follow a natural method of treating acne it is all too easy to slip into the relentless treatment cycles of buying and applying creams and hoping that they will work. Unfortunately purchased creams will more often than not only provide temporary improvement and will therefore need to be constantly applied. When you find that these creams are not effective the next step is often to visit your doctor. He will most likely prescribe stronger creams and also antibiotic types of medications. This sort of acne treatment is not sustainable and can cause the acne to worsen before any improvement is seen. It is best to avoid strong harsh treatments for acne as the more often they are used the less effective they then become.

Treat your acne in a natural way by avoiding the products that you have found that worsen the condition of your skin. A first starting point would always be to keep the affected skin areas as clean as they need to be. If you have a habit of touching your face for instance then you are going to quickly spread the bacteria around, that causes more spots and also the chances of infecting skin follicle and pore areas.  Aim to always keep the skin and the acne areas clean and avoid squeezing and picking at spots.  Using cleaning wipes might be alright if there are no other means to clean the skin, but they can feel drying to the touch especially if they are alcohol based.  It is preferable to set aside some time to clean your skin more thoroughly with a gentle non-soap cleanser. Ideally, you should try to keep the skin area clean at all times. Do not use soap based products to wash your skin as they cause your skin to dry out by removing the skins natural moisture. When the skin areas are dry they can become cracked and sore and become an ideal breeding ground for bacteria to grow. In acne the skin pores become blocked very easily, which is why it is important to remove the bacteria from your skin regularly. Continue reading
