How To Lose Weight Fast Without Doing Any Exercise

How To Lose Weight Fast Without Doing Any Exercise

Losing weight is one of those topics that someone you know is always mentioning. Losing weight can be an uphill battle, or one plagued by yo-yo diets that cause you to lose weight fast, only to later put it back on even faster.

You can lose weight fast without doing any exercise.

It is commonly thought that calories control everything in terms of weight loss. Here is the shocker: calories do not matter; it is all based upon your environment and how well energy flows in your body.

Our bodies are made up of predominately water, and water conducts energy. However, the environment that we live in today has changed from 100 years ago. Today, we have all sorts of electronic devices and electromagnetic forces that affect how the energy is conducted through our bodies.

So what does this mean for you if you want to lose weight?

It means that we have to eat more whole foods with real ingredients, drink high quality non-fluoridated water, and make sure that we are minding light cycles and circadian biology.

1.  Start Your Morning Off Right

You have always heard that breakfast is your most important meal, which is true. Breakfast starts to get your leptin back in check in your brain. Leptin is the key hormone for appetite, energy expenditure, and all hormonal functions in your body. If you are leptin resistant (i.e. overweight), then you more than likely have a series of hormonal problems at play, which can all be fixed by getting leptin in check.

Eat a high protein breakfast (50 grams) of fish and/or meat within 30 minutes of waking alongside plenty of fat (coconut oil, bacon, duck fat, butter, avocado, olive oil).

2.  Continue to Eat Seasonal “Real” Food

Real food is exactly what is sounds like. It has ingredients that you understand, and it is currently growing in your area right now. These foods include vegetables (eat low carbohydrate vegetables and you will stay full longer) and fruits. Looking for recipes? Check out Civilized Caveman Cooking.

Make sure that you are eating plenty of high quality seafood and grass-fed meats.

3. Stay Away from Grains, Dairy, and Added Sugars

This includes all gluten products, breads, pastries, rice, cereals, whole grains. Added sugars equal carbohydrates, too. Food that is higher in carbohydrates elicits an inflammation response in your body causing your body to not lose any weight. Dairy can also cause inflammation.

4.  Eat Your Last Meal At Least 4 Hours Before Bed

Remember your late night snacking? It’s gone. Giving yourself plenty of time to eat before bed will allow your body to digest food and your hormones to get in balance in your brain. It may be hard, but isn’t living life something that you want to do?

5.  Turn Off the Lights at Night

Artificial light allows us to do so much, but also hurts us because it makes it more difficult for our brains to tell time (the difference between night and day), which causes insulin resistance and all sorts of other health problems. When it is dark outside, it should be dark inside. At night, transition from using blue and white lights to using amber-colored lighting and candles. It makes all the difference and will also help you be able to sleep through the night. It’s known in the medical and science community as “circadian biology.”

6.  Do NOT Snack

Eat three meals a day. You may get to the point where you are not hungry for lunch, which is fine, but do not skip breakfast. If you seem to get hungry, make sure that you eat more fat at your next meal. These fats include avocados, bacon, duck fat, butter, coconut oil.

Fat is your friend and does not make you get fat.

7.  Drink TONS of Spring Water or Reverse Osmosis Water

Water is key to making sure your body continues to conduct energy. The type of water that you drink matters. Fluoridated water (most tap water in the United States contains fluoride) actually destroys the blood barrier in the brain, causing more havoc on our bodies and allowing toxins to get into the brain. Spring water and reverse osmosis water from a non-fluoridated source are what you should be drinking. Drink at least 2.5 liters a day. The more your are around electronics, the more water you should drink.

8. Go Outside and See the Sun

The sun is actually good for us. It provides us with more energy in our bodies. The sun’s light is transferred into photons, which our bodies read as electrons (i.e. energy). The more energy you have, the less inflammation you have, the more weight you lose, and the better you feel.

*Bonus*: If you want to speed up your weight loss, start doing cold thermogenesis. This involves cooling down your body in order to save its energy and not lose it to your environment, and can be accomplished by taking ice baths. Be careful, and watch out for your skin temperature. If your skin starts to get white, it’s time to get out of the cold water.

Exercise is good for you; however, it is not the key factor when you are trying to lose weight. It is all based on the energy equation. The more energy that you have, the healthier you will be.

If you are tired of trying every other diet under the sun only to be left disappointed, this information should help. It’s not about the calories; it’s about the energy. I follow this protocol myself and have transformed my health over the past 8 months. It will make you feel the best that you have ever felt in your life.

How to Improve Memory and Boost Your Brainpower

How to Improve Memory and Boost Your Brainpower

Have you ever noticed that some people are able to effortlessly remember even the most mundane details and quickly comprehend new things? Well, you can too!

To unlock the full potential of your brain, you need to keep it active and acute. Wasting time on your couch watching mindless television shows or scrolling through facebook is not going to help.

Besides getting out flashcards, what can you do to help remember things better and learn new things more quickly? Check out these 10 effective ways on how to improve memory:

1. Exercise and Get Your Body Moving

Exercising doesn’t just exercise the body, it also helps to exercise your brain. Obesity and the myriad of diseases that eventually set in as a result of being overweight can cause serious harm to the brain.

Furthermore, without regular exercise, plaque starts to build up in your arteries, and your blood vessels begin to lose the ability to effectively pump blood. Plaque buildup leads to heart attacks and it also reduces the amount of oxygen and nutrients that your blood carries to your brain. When the nutrients don’t make it there, the brain’s ability to function is compromised.

To prevent this from happening, make sure you get moving every day. Even if it’s just a brisk walk, it’ll help you maintain and increase your mental acuity. Brisk walking, swimming and dancing are all excellent activities. Take a look at these 5 Ways to Find Time for Exercise.

2. Eliminate Stressors and Seek Help If You’re Depressed

Anything that causes you major stress, like anger or anxiety, will in time begin to eat away the parts of your brain that are responsible for memory. Amongst the most brain-damaging stressors is depression, which is actually often misdiagnosed a a memory problem since one of its primary symptoms is the inability to concentrate.

If you can’t concentrate, then you might feel like you are constantly forgetting things. Depression increases the levels of cortisol in your bloodstream which elevates the cortisol levels in the brain. Doctors have found that increased cortisol diminishes certain areas of the brain, especially the hippocampus which is where short-term memories are stored.

Prolonged depression can thus destroy your brain’s ability to remember anything new. Seek professional help to combat your depression – your brain will thank you.

3. Get a Good Night’s Sleep and Take Naps

Getting a consistent 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night will increase your memory. During sleep, the brain firms up memories of recently acquired information.

Getting enough sleep will help you get through the full spectrum of nocturnal cycles that are essential to optimal brain and body functioning during the waking hours. Taking a nap throughout the day, especially after learning something new, can also help you to retain those memories as well as recharge your brain and keep it sharper longer.

4. Feed Your Brain

Fifty to sixty percent of the brain’s overall weight is pure fat, which is used to insulate its billions of nerve cells. The better insulated a cell is, the faster it can send messages and the quicker you will be thinking.

This is precisely why parents are advised to feed their young children whole milk and to restrict dieting – their brains’ need fat to grow and work properly. Skimping on fats can be devastating even to the adult brain.

Thus, eating foods that contain a healthy mix of fats is vital for long-term memory. Some excellent food choices include fish (especially anchovies, mackerel and wild salmon) and dark leafy green vegetables. Here’re more brain food choices: 12 Foods that Can Improve Your Brain Power

Deep-fried foods obviously contain fat but their lack of nutritional value is not going to help your brain or your body, so think healthy foods and fats.

5. Eat Breakfast and Make Sure It Includes an Egg

According to Larry McCleary, M.D., author of  The Brain Trust Program, an egg is the ideal breakfast. Eggs contain B vitamins which help nerve cells to burn glucose, antioxidants that protect neurons against damage; and omega-3 fatty acids that keep nerve cells firing at optimal speed.

Other foods to add to your breakfast include fruits, veggies and lean proteins. Avoid trans fats and high fructose corn syrup. Trans fats diminish the brain cells’ ability to communicate with each other and HFCS can actually shrink the brain by damaging cells.

6. Write it Down

If there’s something you want to remember, writing it down can help.

It may sound like a no-brainer, but do you really know why? Writing it down creates oxygenated blood flow to areas of your brain that a responsible for your memories and literally exercises those parts of it. Here’s How Writing Things Down Can Change Your Life.

You can start a journal, write yourself emails or even start keeping a blog – all of these activities will help to improve your capacity to remember and memorize information.

7. Listen to Music

Research shows that certain types of music are very helpful in recalling memories. Information that is learned while listening to a particular song or collection can often be recalled by thinking of the song or “playing” it mentally. Songs and music can serve as cues for pulling up particular memories.

8. Visual Concepts

In order to remember things, many people need to visualize the information they are studying.

Pay attention to photographers, charts and other graphics that might appear in your textbook; or if you’re not studying a book, try to pull up a mental image of what it is you are trying to remember. It might also help to draw your own charts or figures, or utilize colors and highlighters to group related ideas in your notes.

9. Teach Someone Else

Reading material out loud has been shown to significantly improve memory of the material. Expanding further upon this idea is the fact that psychologists and educators have found that by having students teach new concepts to others, it helps to enhance understanding and recall.

Teach new concepts and information to a friend or study partner, and you’ll find you remember the information a lot better.

10. Do Crossword Puzzles, Read or Play Cards

Studies have shown that doing crossword puzzles, read or play cards on a daily basis not only keep your brain active but also help to delay memory loss, especially in those who develop dementia.

So pick up the daily newspaper and work on that crossword puzzle, read a book or enjoy a game of solitaire.

Pick one to two of these tips first and start applying them to your everyday life. Very soon you’ll find yourself having better memories and a clearer head!
