Which Diet Would You Choose?

I’m sure most people know someone who is overweight or even obese and struggling to get their size under control. Naturally we would love to see them getting themselves back into shape and feeling healthy and happy for their own good.

Of course getting up the courage to confide in that person is not always the wisest or easiest thing to do. It’s fine if the person is aware of their problem and they are actively looking at ways to manage it. Your help might be most welcome!

But it may not be quite as welcome if the person is not trying to do anything to help themselves. This is especially if they are maybe in some kind of denial and they do not see themselves as overweight at all.

A Friend in Need

But sometimes, if it is a really good friend and you are concerned that their health may be suffering because they simply won’t do anything to help themselves, then sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and tell it to them straight. Once you can get them to agree that the need to do something to lose weight, then you can help them by offering some easy solutions that might be right for them.

There are plenty of weight loss diets and exercise programs available so it shouldn’t be too hard coming up with a plan they will agree to. Many overweight people are not so struck on the idea of exercising, so opting for a good diet is usually the best way to get them to turn things around.

You might ask them what their preferences are and maybe put forward a program like the Nutrisystem diet, Medifast or Bistro MD or perhaps a more hands on approach like Weight Watchers or another kind of strategy. The diet delivery programs are relatively easy to work with and it often doesn’t even seem like they are on a diet.

Positive Reasons to Choose One Brand Over Another

If you give them enough good reasons why they should choose a diet like, for example Nutrisystem for busy dieters, then they might just want to give it a try. You could tell them about how convenient it can be by not having to go to the store to buy food as all their meals would be delivered to their home.

You could tell them about how time saving it is, not having to prepare special meals, calculate calorie and portion amounts and even not having to cook anything themselves. You could also tell them about how inexpensive it is to do this kind of diet because it often works out cheaper than what they would spend on their regular meals.

All these benefits might just persuade them to go ahead and sign up with this home delivery diet company. There are always choices that have to be made, so it makes sense to go for the easiest choices for losing weight and getting back into shape.

As long as the recipient is open to your suggestions and is in a positive frame of mind as to their own ability to get on a plan and stick with it, they stand a good chance of succeeding. You can help by providing support and help along the way or simply by being a good listener when they need to talk.

Either way, helping someone get back to health and into shape can be almost as satisfying as doing it yourself!

The Problems Drinking Super Size Soda Create

Maybe you haven’t noticed what has been happening these days in fast food restaurants and other food outlets, but there has been a new initiative to increase profits by franchise owners and store managers. It comes in the form of providing customers with super size meals accompanied by super size soda!

This, you might think is a nice way for the restaurants and stores to offer people better value for their money. But the only value in giving customers even more calories for their already bloated bodies to cope with is in favor of the cash register.

People really don’t need to eat and drink more when there is an obesity epidemic sweeping through the country that is seeing unbelievable numbers of people getting overweight and obese. So what is the problem with those super size sodas?

Making a Bad Thing Bigger

Well, by making an already extremely unhealthy product even more easily available in huge quantities, the sellers are handing their customers a virtual loaded gun with which they are happy to point at their heads and pull the trigger. All those extra calories in the mammoth size cups of soda (or should we call them buckets?) go straight on the waistline of those poor deluded people and they are so busy thinking they are getting such great value for money, they don’t even notice.

How many of those customers even realize the implications of the additional load they are placing on their bodies? How few of them will figure out they need to change their whole food and drink consumption process or even start a new low calorie diet in an attempt to to halt the damage they have been doing to themselves and try to reverse the dangerous increase in their body weight?

In truth an extra 500 or more calories to each meal might not seem like much, but when you add it all up it converts to extra pounds of weight piling onto already overweight bodies. The internal damage being done by all that extra sugar (sucrose or high fructose corn syrup) is crazy.

This stuff gets processed by the liver into visceral fat. That’s the dangerous kind that wraps itself around major organs including the heart and secretes a hormone that promotes the growth of cancer cells.

…and It Just Gets Worse

In other words, recent scientific studies into the effects of excess sugar consumption have concluded that eating too much of it can trigger cancer, particularly the breast and colon varieties. This massive increase in the amount of refined sugars that we are eating in our diets which has been on the increase since the 1950s but has exploded in the last 20 years could actually be responsible for the massive increase in cases of breast and colon cancer. Think about that!

It’s not just the link excess sugar consumption has with cancer that we should be concerned about. There is the more prolific health problem of type II diabetes that has also reached epidemic proportions in almost perfect ratio to the explosion in the obesity figures.

It doesn’t take a whole lot of figuring out to see the obvious correlation between consuming too much sugar in foods and beverages and the wide range of health problems that more and more people are suffering from these days. Yet so many people keep on buying and consuming the products that are at the root cause of the problems, it is as if they are blind to the consequences. Don’t be blind!

So next time you are visiting a fast food joint, don’t be tempted to super size. In fact, don’t even be tempted to go large.

Better still, don’t even go in there! Get yourself a healthy lunch instead and start losing some of that weight before it literally kills you.
