Ready to try weight loss that’s proven to work?

  I was surfing some weight loss sites today to see what kind of information is being peddled out there today. I had to shake my head. A well known health publication was still blasting banners about cholesterol – even though current research indicates that cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease. What’s up with that? Oh yeah – they’re advertiser supported. Duh! Big pharma runs a zillion ads in this publication. Another ad for a popular information site asks, which is lower in calories – and shows a glass of orange juice, and a glass of pop. Ounce for ounce, juice does have more calories. But your body doesn’t see it that way. This simple comparison does not account for nutrient value, or how your body responds to the chemical additives and unnatural sugars. That’s why calorie counting as a diet aid is usually misguided. It’s why people are guzzling gallons of zero calorie pop and not losing an ounce. But this very popular information provider gives you the impression that it’s better to drink the pop than the orange juice. From here, I was led to one of their weight loss blogs. This blog stated ‘weight loss since 2000’, but the picture of the author showed a definitely overweight woman. Should you be taking advice from someone who doesn’t know how to lose weight? From there, I clicked on a link that led to one of the bogus ‘how I lost weight using 2 free products’ sites. Sigh…. You’ve got to be tired of chasing your tail. Aren’t you? Listen. There is one proven way to lose weight and keep it off. It’s called a healthy diet, and exercise. That sounds like a death sentence, doesn’t it? Actually, it’s quite the opposite. It’s your ticket to living life. See, that same diet that will help you lose weight will also keep your blood pressure down, cut your risk of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and a whole slew of other chronic diseases, protects your vision, keeps you thinking clearly, keeps you looking and feeling younger longer, and in general will keep you out of the nursing home longer. OK, now do a search for healthy eating. Now that sounds like a death sentence! Vegetable juices, greens, seeds, tofu, soy, Special K. I especially love the raw foods people. Are you serious? I did actually find good articles here –  http://www.helpguide.org/life/healthy_eating_diet.htm and here – http://www.helpguide.org/life/healthy_weight_loss.htm Ellie Krieger’s Healthy Recipes on the Food Network look really good. I have to try that cherry vanilla oatmeal. I wish we could get rid of the big soyjoy commercial on that site – since you and I both know that soy has turned out to be a really bad thing. Have you noticed that I don’t run many ads here? You know why? I don’t want ads running here for something I do not believe in, and do not endorse. Do you know how ad servers work? My article might be about how bad soy is, but because the word soy is used – ads for soy products would show up. How confusing is that?  On one side I would be talking about how bad it is, and over to the right, there’s links to go buy soy products. In keeping with that same line of ethics, Rebel With a Fork is also not advertiser supported. Just pure information and great recipes. There is a small membership fee to help cover expenses, but you can try it for 10 days free. If you’re tired of buying all this stuff that doesn’t work and you’re ready to actually do what’s proven to help you maintain a great thin & healthy body – I hope you’ll at least give it a try and let me know what you think. I think its a breath of fresh air, but I’m a little biased 😉 Visit Rebel With a Fork >>>
