Simple Tips for a Successful Weight Loss

Lately I´ve been thinking about my blog and the direction I´m going with it. Previously, I have started to write also in Finnish because people have been asking for it. So now I´m thinking that should I write only in Finnish or both English and Finnish? I have already written some posts in English so I will publish them first, like this one. But after I have published these I will write Finnish posts and sometimes posts in English.

 It should come no surprise that part of a successful weight loss involves a diet and exercise. The regular rules are eat less, exercise more and watch the pounds melt away. How then apply this knowledge into action? I´m afraid there is no perfect diet or an exercise program which fill fit for all.
You have to try and see what works our for you. What I can assure you is that current weight loss is possible IF you adopt healthy life style habits and not just follow a diet for a certain period of time. There have been studies which indicate that 90 % of weight loser will gain the lost weight back within one year. Meaning that only 10 % will succeeded in making permanent results. How will these people succeed? In this post I will tell their secrets.

Succesful weight losers 

  • eat less and exercise more on a daily basis
  • monitor their weight, eating habits and exercise routines on a weekly basis
  • try and error but at the same time they learn from their mistakes
  • think flexible. It is a known fact too strict mindset won´t get you anywhere.
  • manage stress
  • have a positive self image
  • have in control of their life (stress, sleep, diet)

Fruits and berries are healthy but is there more to it than that?

Few words about changing your habits when it comes to eating. These changes have to be permanent. Weight loser can never go back to their old habits. Weigh losers should think what things can she really change for good, not just for a few weeks. Changes are easier if they are not too strict. The goal is that losing weight is as an easy journey as possible, not a misery ride. That´s where most people get it wrong. Too strict and heavy limitations won´t work. The person should think about 2-3 things she wants to change this week. Start from the easiest ones. Maybe the person is not sleeping enough which affects losing weight in every way. The person should try to go to bed one hour earlier each day. Or maybe she is not eating regularly every 3-4 hours. In the long run, usually 4-6 changes will help to achieve permanent results.

In addition it is advisable to analyze all the previous attempts losing weight. What did go wrong? What was hard? 

Finally, the most beneficial guides are the ones made with a diet counselor or a nutrition coach. In this process the coach and the client work on the problems together and find the perfect solutions which will suit for the client.

I Quit Drinking Coffee and it Changed My Life

The U.S.Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says about 80 percent of U.S. adults take some form of caffeine every day. Accordingly, coffee is one of the most commonly used ingredients in the world. But caffeine does so much more than just keeping you awake.It’s a central nervous system stimulant that affects your body in numerous ways. So, let's talk about this and why drinking coffee might not be good for for you. While there has been numerous studies about the benefits of coffee, such as it increases alertness , lowers the risk of depression and reduces the risk of brain diseases , it has also negative effects on sleep and anxiety and it can cause headaches, panic attacks, adrenal fatigue, loss of energy, it can deprive minerals and vitamins from your body (read more on here ) As I mentioned before( here ), I quit drinking coffee last spring.

Why Are Cola Drinks So Addictive?

Did you know that in Argentina people drink the most soft drinks in the world? Their annual consumption is 155 liters per capita.  Not far behind is number two, the USA with 154 liters per capita. Americans are one of the largest consumers of the soda drinks in the world because of their modern lifestyle and high incomes. As it is very common to drink colas or other soft drinks but I have heard many people saying that they cannot stop drinking them. I started to wonder what is it that makes drinking Coca-Cola so addictive? Is it the caffeine, sugar or the artificial sweeteners? Besides what's the harm in drinking Coca-Cola? Below I will examine these three issues. Caffeine content The caffeine content in a 330ml serving of regular (sugar) Coca-Cola is about 32 mg. Compared to a a mug of coffee which contains 100 mg of caffeine that is a bit less. According to the Coca-Cola company the caffeine in their drinks is not addictive. However, if you are really sensitive to caffein

Viimeinen hormonimyrsky: imetyksen lopettaminen

  Olen imettänyt lähes vuoden ja nyt tämä tie on tullut päätökseen. Imettäminen herättää paljon tunteita ja vaikka olenkin ollut onnellinen siitä, että olen pystynyt tarjoamaan molemmille lapsilleni parasta ravintoa, ei se ole aina sujunut ongelmitta. Usein pohdin, että pulloruokinnassa olisin päässyt "helpommalla". Kuitenkin molempien kanssa jatkoin imetystä sitkeästi ja näin jälkikäteen ajatellen onneksi niin tein đź’— Ehkäpä tämän vuoksi imetyksen lopettaminen kuopuksen kohdalla ei ollutkaan niin helppoa. Viimeiset imetyskerrat sijoittuivat rauhallisiin aamuhetkiin joten sen lopettaminen minulle olikin haikeaa. Miksi? Ehkä se oli se läheisyys ja tunne siitä, että se on sitten niin lopullista. Nautin, kun sain pitää vauvan vielä hetken aikaa rauhallisena vieressä. Lopulta tulikin päivä, jolloin tyttö heräsi mieheni kanssa enkä enää imettänytkään. Eilisen kerta olikin ollut tietämättäni viimeinen kerta. Mitä kehossani sitten tapahtui, kun imetys loppui? Pari päivää lopettamise

5 Effective Weight Loss Drinks

When it comes to losing weight, there is a lot of different kinds of detox packages and weight loss drinks available. However, I would not recommend using these products because they only offer short term benefits if any benefits at all. Instead I encourage to use a weight loss method which is sustainable.

I would like to remind you that drinking these drinks are not your only diet.  On the contrary, these are recommended beside your healthy meals and these healthy drinks could replace your other sugary sodas and juices..Besides they are also healthy and delicio

How to Stay Young and Healthy

The other day I watched a really interesting BBC document about how to stay young and more specifically how to prevent dementia and Alzheimer's disease. As you get older your brains begin to shrink. As a result of this your cognitive skills diminish. How to prevent this? The key is to use your brains on a daily basis. More specifically scientists have discovered that learning a new language has the most efficient way to prevent dementia because learning will increase the size of your brain. According to these scientists other important ways to affect the size of your brain were reading exercising in general learning a new skill, such as playing guitar studying In the document researches investigated whether regular walks or ping poll plays had an effect on the brain tissue. The test groups walked or played ping poll for 2 hours per week. The results revealed that both test groups gained positive effects on their brain tissue because of their increased exercise. Mo

Paljonko mökin rakentaminen maksaa?

* kaupallinen yhteistyö  Rakentaminen on arvokasta puuhaa varsinkin tänä päivänä, kun rakentamiskustannukset vain tuntuvat nousevan. Kuitenkin suurimpaan osaan rakentamiskustannuksiin voi vaikuttaa itse omilla valinnoillaan. Kustannukset syntyvät muun muassa kesämökin koosta, muodosta, toteuttamistavasta sekä varustelutasosta. Erot syntyvät varsinkin lämmitys- ja ilmastointiratkaisuista sekä materiaalivalinnoista. Näiden lisäksi myös valmiin mökin sisustaminen maksaa. Olemmekin kohta pääsemässä tähän vaiheeseen rantasaunassa. Kun kustannuksia on tullut hieman odotettua enemmän rakentamisvaiheessa tarkoittaa se sitä, että joudun miettimään sisustusvalintoja tarkemmin. Alun perin ideana olikin ostaa mahdollisimman paljon käytettyä, sillä oma arvomaailmani on muuttunut paljon parin viime vuoden aikana. Käytetty linjalla siis mennäänkin, mutta muutamia tavaroita, joudumme teetättämään, jotta saadaan esimerkiksi sopiva keittiötaso. Mitä tulee rakentamiskustannuksiin, nii
