3 Ways You Can Start Losing Weight NOW
Why is it that you can eat exactly the same thing as someone in your family or friends and yet YOU gain 3 times more weight?
Here's the simple fact: You can eat lettuce and work-out all day long and never lose any weight if you don't balance your blood sugar and hormones.
But that's nearly impossible for the majority of people because most folks living in the modern world are desperately addicted to sugar.
The addiction to sugar is real and many experts will tell you that it is more difficult to quit sugar than smoking, alcoholism, or even addiction to "hard drugs". And according to Dr. David Getoff sugar is much more addicting than heroin.
If you feel like you can't give up sweets, or you can't give up dessert, or you can't give up pizza, pasta or bread (these are broken down nearly instantly into sugar)... then you know exactly what I'm talking about.
And if you think that's bad... it's actually even worse: Because it's now been proven that synthetic sweeteners that many people rely on to help them reduce sugar in their diets are actually worse for you.
Studies after studies have shown that these zero-calorie synthetic sweeteners actually trigger chemical reactions in the body that cause you to produce more fat and gain more weight.
But if you can get off the sugar roller-coaster, you will see instantaneous changes in your weight and in your physic. Here are 3 things that can help you lose weight now...
Use Natural, Healthy Sweeteners
When you consume foods that have sugar, high fructose corn syrup, maltose, or any of the other names they use to disguise the word "sugar" on ingredient labels... or... when you eat white or refined starches like bread, pasta, rice, or potatoes... you cause your insulin levels to spike.
These insulin spikes leave you feeling fatigued, depressed, and cause your body to store fat. They also cause your blood-sugar level to crash... which is why you immediately get cravings to eat more.
A good number of people spend their whole day trapped in this cycle.
But some foods that are sweet have forms of natural sugar that break down extremely slowly in the body, completely preventing the insulin spike.
A great example of this is "agave nectar".
The agave plant is closely related to the aloe vera. And the syrup from this plant is very sweet (it is sweeter by weight than sugar) and yet it is very low on the glycemic index... meaning: It burns very slowly and does not cause a spike to your insulin level.
You can find organic, raw agave nectar in most health food stores.
Dietary Supplement: Stevia
While agave is great because it burns slowly, the stevia leaf has no calories at all... yet is extremely sweet.
Stevia is also quite a bit sweeter than sugar, but you won't find it sold anywhere as a "sweetener". Due to some politics within the FDA, it can only be found as a "dietary supplement".
Numerous studies on the safety of stevia show that, as a natural product, it is extremely safe and non-toxic. And it has been used in many cultures from Paraguay to Japan as a health-promoting herb.
This miracle herb can used to sweeten anything from your morning coffee to candy as a healthful substitute for sugar.

Did you know that about 75% of the human body is composed of water?
And did you know that if you ask most people what they would like to drink water would be on a last choice?
Because your body is composed of about 75% of water that means that it needs water to function optimally.
This is one of the easiest tips to implement yet most people neglect it. If you just start drinking more water every day it will go a long way in speeding up you fat loss.
Researchers in Germany have found that people who drank water had an increase in the amount of calories they brunt per day.
How much water should I drink?
I suggest that you start with I glass a day and then increase at your own pace until you reach ten glasses per day.
Once you have achieved ten glasses per day I recommend you follow Dr. Batmanghelidj, MD water consumption recommendations:
Determine your body weight in pounds, divide it by two and drink that many in ounces of water each day.
For example, a 200lbs person would need to drink 100 ounces of water each day.
