Why is Paleo Diet so Popular?

1:  It seems to be a very healthy way of eating, with people reporting more energy, less stress, smoother skin, better sleep and stronger immune system.  2: It is a very broad diet, and includes for instance lean meats, fish, fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds.  And 3: These foods are so nutritious and filling, it’s almost impossible to overeat.  Result: You lose weight or maintain your optimal weight without those starving moments so many other diets lead to. 

And What Is The Paleo Diet anyway?

The Paleo Diet is based on eating how we’re biologically designed to eat from ancient times more than 10.000 years ago.    – Foods that could only be obtained by hunting and findings from wild trees, bushes and flowers.  So typical “farming” products like  dairy products, legumes and grains was not around until farming emerged about 10.000 years ago.  So what about that delicious ice cream, dairy products, etc?  Well, it seems that lots of people do not use the Paleo way of eating literally, but simply use it as a basis – with small exceptions allowed – to succeed with optimal health, energy and weight loss.


The Paleo food includes fish and lean meat, which for many  make it easier to follow than strictly vegetarian or vegan diets.  Like most other diets, drinking abundance of water and being physically active is also important parts!


So, now let’s have a look at our recommended cook book for Paleo way of eating: “1000 Paleo Recipes”.

First of all, it is available immediately, online, as it is in the form of digital Ebooks, full of delicious, healthy, step-by-step recipes.  Smartly divided into Sections like:

  • Chicken Recipes
  • Red Meat Recipes
  • Hot And Cold Veggie Recipes
  • Fish Recipes
  • Breakfast And Egg Recipes
  • Salad Recipes
  • Smoothie Recipes (very creative, probably not many smoothies around 10.000 years ago!)
  • and many more.

An important feature is the variety of time required to prepare the different recipes; or said with their own words: “We have masterpiece recipes included when you are feeling adventurous in the kitchen but we also kept in mind that so many of us live busy lives and need delicious yet quick and simple recipes. You have flexibility to choose the recipe that is right for you.”

Another thing we personally like much is their special edition of Dessert Recipes, and the fact that you can have these recipes available wherever you are on your ipad, mobile or whatever device you have at hand when you are shopping or preparing the food. Click here to get the Ebook(s)!

Vegan Weight Loss Start TODAY with these tips

Easy to follow Vegan weight loss tips.

You probably by now have heard about the vegan weight loss diet – and how successful it can be for helping you to get that desired weight loss.
Can it really work also for the long term- not only a short term “fad”?  Are there any pitfalls or challenges you should look out for? Look here for some surprising, but important answers!
Let’s start with the obvious first…


The reason why A Vegan Weight Loss Diet Works!

Two words: 1.FIBER      2. EASY!

1. When eating fiber-rich foods, the fiber sweeps through your intestines and pushes the crap out (literally). Giving fibers regularly to your body, means you are always cleaning out the crap from your pipes.

2. Contrary to a lot of other diets, vegan diet is EASY to implement. Both because this is a diet that has lots of well-tasting foods to choose among , and because all these foods are easily available in almost any food shop. Thirdly: Little or no xtra cost compared to animal and dairy foods (that have ZERO fiber!).  Last and not least: You will quickly discover that your constant craving for food is vanishing, as the fibers in the vegan food keeps your body happy for a much longer time after eating!
It’s a LIFESTYLE CHANGE. And IT WORKS. Losing weight long term is one big advantage, but not only that;  your body will experience positive health changes as well.  You can start right here:  We have come across a very attractively illustrated Cookbook for Vegan Breakfasts and Vegan Desserts: 

A well illustrated Vegan Cookbook for breakfasts and desserts

What differs Vegan from Vegetarian Diet?
In case you shouldn’t know, here is a definition: In addition to not consuming any animal flesh, a vegan (strict vegetarian) also doesn’t eat dairy products, eggs, or any other product derived from an animal.


Isn’t A Vegetarian Diet good enough?
Vegetarians do not eat meat, but continue to eat eggs and use dairy products (milk, cheese, yogurt). However, dairy products like milk and cheese (simply concentrated milk!) are foods that make you gain weight, not lose weight. So if you want to reduce your weight long term, the vegan diet is the best solution.  But, if you are happy with your body weight, but want healthier food for your body, vegetarian food is a good way to go.


Our Top 10 Vegan Weight Loss Tips that you can start with TODAY!

  1. Get to know the Vegan Food Pyramid. An important starting point to understanding the various food groups you need to eat. Be aware of that the range of servings in the Pyramid was created for the general population, – also for people who want to GAIN weight! How do you use the Pyramid for the weight loss results?
    Very simple: Go for the LOWER serving amounts listed in most of the categories.
  2. Cut down your sugar intake as much as possible! Sugar is the enemy of glucagon, a hormone that “eats” fat and transform to energy!
  3. Avoid fruit juice! This is one source of “sugar” that you need to skip. Don’t misunderstand: Fruits are really good for you, providing you with the water-rich fiber, and lots of nutrients that is good for your body. But if you drink the juice, you are eliminating the fiber within and basically sipping in the simple sugars naturally contained in the fruit. Eat the fruit as is, or go for fresh vegetable juice instead.
  4. Eat lots of green leafy veggies like turnip greens and broccoli. These types of foods provide CALCIUM which is needed to lose weight. If you are lacking in calcium, your vegan weight loss efforts could be hampered.
  5. Drink LOADS OF WATER. All those amazing fiber-rich foods you should eat need water to aid them in the job they need to do. 6-12 glasses per day. The lower range ok if you eat lots of water-rich fruits and veggies and smoothies.
  6. Use the SCALE with caution. Why? SCALES CAN LIE! You should know that if you do the really right thing to your body (enjoying a vegan diet AND regularly exercising) your waist can be inches slimmer, but you might GAIN WEIGHT. What happens, is that you then begin to build muscles where you didn’t have them before. (And absolutely not “he-man” muscles!)  Muscles are more dense than fat; therefore, as the muscles grow and the fat is burned off you get slimmer and more toned, while the weight might be about the same.
  7. Having the last tip in mind: Start aerobic AND muscle building exercises. Just face it: You have to exercise for weight loss! There is no diet in this world that will work if you don’t exercise regularly. If you are not used to exercise, just start with getting up from the couch, and start moving! Gradually increase to walking, until you reach about minimum 30 minutes at least 3-4 times a week. But don’t think leisurely walking is good enough. You will need to SWEAT to lose the fat! Still, don’t exaggerate and push too hard. That will make it tempting to quit sooner or later. Find a suitable tempo that suits you, makes you sweat a bit, but not exasperating – and making you feel REAL GOOD after the shower!
  8. Don’t be afraid of gain a bit of muscles. Muscle burns fat! But be sure to get advice from your doctor or a pro as you can hurt yourself if you don’t know what you’re doing!
  9. Be patient. Make changes to your diet in small steps for the greatest long-term!


We hope these tips can get you up for a good start,  and into a smart way to long term weight loss!

8 Effective Slimming tips for your tummy

Want to trim down your tummy?  Smart move!


Besides looking and feeling good, keeping a slim waistline, protects your health:
Studies show that slimming your tummy is one of the best ways to help reduce your risk for cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.

So here we give you a handful of tips that will help you shed inches , and hopefully make you feel even more gorgeous!



Tip 1:”Eat a protein snack between lunch and dinner.

Do not miss that snack. It’s important because it boosts metabolism and balances blood sugar. The lower you keep your blood sugar, the lower you keep your insulin, and insulin makes you store fat around your middle. Eating every three to four hours will keep your blood sugar at an even level.


Tip 2: Avoid sugar.
“Eat as close to zero sugar as possible. This is another important way to keep insulin levels low and levels of glucagon high. Glucagon, a hormone “eats” fat and transform it to energy and is probably the best friend you could ever have if you want a flat belly!”   Said by Jorge Cruise, author of The Belly Fat Cure, – and supported by many studies.


Tip 3: Be careful about the salt.
Use natural sea salt or kosher salt. Or fresh tomato salsa, or a dash of cayenne pepper .

Avoid traditional table salts and stay away from soya sauce!
“Salt, or rather sodium, could be the cause of making your tummy bloat. Even low-sodium soy sauce is still high in sodium and will cause practically instant bloating.


Tip 4: Chew your food more than well!
Chew food until it is like liquid in your mouth. Digestion begins in the mouth, Without proper chewing, food is not well-digested. Other good advantages:  Less gas and bloating. Guess that would be good for some of you out there! 


Tip 5: Put Abs exercises way down on your flat-belly list!
Myatt Murphy, author of “The Body You Want in the Time You Have” recommend the DCBA approach: Diet first, Cardio second, Building muscle third, and Abs exercises last. He says: “Follow it and you can safely lose one to two pounds a week. Spend 60 minutes a day preparing healthier meals. Spend 20 minutes a day three to five times weekly doing cardio. Spend 15 minutes a day three times a week strength training. Finally, spend 5 minutes a day three times a week doing abs exercises”.  Well, for some that could be a bit overwhelming , but follow that principle, (order of importance), even if you do it in smaller chunks!


Tip 6: Control size and content of your food portions.
“Eating portion-controlled meals that include mono unsaturated fats (like avocados, olive oil,  sunflower oils,  nuts, seeds and whole grains) throughout the day is the best way to eat for a flat belly” says Keri Glassman, RD, author of The O2 Diet and The Snack Factor Diet : “People who eat whole grains lose more abdominal fat”.


Tip 7: A quick examples of good flat-belly menus
Breakfast: One slice of whole-wheat bread with natural peanut butter and 1 cup of berries your choice.

Lunch: Spinach salad with sliced avocado, grilled tofu, and cherry tomatoes, add a dash of olive oil and fresh lemon juice.

Dinner: Salmon (grilled), a roasted sweet potato, asparagus with olive oil and garlic.

Between-meals snack: Fat-free yogurt with a couple tablespoons sunflower seeds.


Tip 8: Be happy! Don’t worry!
“The best thing for your abs is laughing. Every time you laugh it strengthens your abs. Laugh often and laugh good! Good for body, good for belly, good for you!

It’s time you  try the little known, but versatile quinoa grain!  It’s delicious, filling and totally unprocessed.  And a great source of protein when and if you don’t want meat or dairy.  Many call it the “complete protein,” as it contains all of the essential amino acids, just like eggs do.


Tip: Make a big batch to have it available several days in a row.  Try with different add-ins to find some favorite recipes of yours.

Garcinia Cambogia Review


Garcinia Cambogia is one of the most popular weight loss supplements today across the globe. It is a purely natural slimming formula. Unlike some other weight loss supplements in the market, this ‘holy Grail of weight loss’ (as someones like to call it) does not have any side effects. The product has received many positive feedbacks from people that have used it before. Using Garcinia Cambogia seems to be a possible way to losing weight quickly without engaging in any strenuous exercise and weight loss diet.


Garcinia Cambogia contains all the essential nutrients and hydroxycitric acid (HCA) which is naturally extracted from Garcinia fruit. The supplement does not contain any chemical, preservatives and binders. That is why many people prefer it to other weight loss supplements. Make sure to check that the product is manufactured under a healthy environment and FDA inspected and approved lab. In keeping with the recommendations of for instance Dr Oz, a capsule of Garcinia Cambogia should contain a minimum of 60 percent of HCA which is its active ingredient.


Garcinia Cambogia is a tropical evergreen tree grown mainly in Indonesia and Malaysia. Scientists have studied the fruit for years. But it was only recently that it was approved as a very effective and healthy weight loss supplement. Weight loss enthusiasts who have used Garcinia Cambogia extract before have also confirmed its effectiveness and have posted positive reviews for it.


How does it work?


Garcinia Cambogia gets rid of excess fat in a natural way. Garcinia is a natural fat burner and appetite suppressant. These two natural qualities of Garcinia Cambogia extract help its users to lose weight fast. When you take Garcinia Cambogia, it will reduce your cravings for junk foods such as pizza. The major cause of overweight and obesity is the foods we eat and the way we eat them. The product will help you to control what you eat on daily basis.


Citrase lyase is an enzyme in your body that plays an important role in the metabolic process through which carbohydrates and excess sugars are converted into fat. Garcinia Cambogia products prevents this enzyme from doing this thereby reducing the fat store of your body.


Garcinia Cambogia contains ingredients that enhance the production of serotonin in the brain. Serotonin is a hormone that aids sleep and improves mood. It is also an appetite suppressant. You will be able to sleep soundly when you use this product. If you sleep soundly, you will be energize the next day and will be able to execute your function effectively in your place of work. It will also help you to have a better mood.


Garcinia Cambogia is a good supplement for people that want to flatten their belly. The ingredients in this product reduce the quantity of cortezole in your belly. Cortezole is a stress hormone in the body that enhances the accumulation of fat in the belly.



What are the benefits?

It has no side effects.
It is 100 percent natural.
It does not require strenuous exercise or weight loss diet.
It is easy to use.
It is not expensive.


What are the disadvantages?
It is important to choose the right garcinia cambogia product, as some are too expensive, and some have additives like artificial binders and caffeine. Avoid these, as garcinia cambogia is a natural product. Also watch out for products with less than 60% HCA as they are less effective.
