  2. 2. Effective Strategies and Simple Things You Can Do to Help Your Body Burn More Calories While at Rest WebHealthForYou.Com
  3. 3.  Do NOT change your diet or exercise level without guidance from your medical doctor, especially if you have health problems or are on medication.  Do NOT change your medications without the guidance of your medical doctor. The information in this book is intended as general information about diet and exercise. It is NOT a substitute for professional medical advice.  There are no express or implied guarantees about weight loss or other physical or health effects. Individual results do vary.

  5. 5. NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS  Information on which herbs and supplements may be helpful in weight control is the subject that most people find most interesting.  For example, chromium was thought to be very useful in weight control because of an early study that suggested that it would help control blood sugar and weight. Subsequent studies showed that chromium is no better than placebo inducing weight loss. WebHealthForYou.Com
  6. 6.  Another popular supplement was chitosan, a nutritional supplement that was sold on infomercials across the country.  Other supplements such as CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) while promising in early studies were found to increase risk factors for coronary heart disease while still others. WebHealthForYou.Com
  7. 7.  There is anecdotal evidence and preliminary scientific reporting on the value of herbs and supplements.  Either supplements really do work or those taking them believe they work and the so-called ‘placebo’ effect helps them lose weight. WebHealthForYou.Com
  8. 8. Take One-a-Day…Or More  The FDA regulates dietary supplements, but they are regulated differently from other foods and from drugs.  That means you need to take additional care in choosing yours. WebHealthForYou.Com
  9. 9.  What should you look for when choosing a dietary supplement? A supplement  1. Is intended to be eaten in addition to a regular diet  2. Contains one or more dietary ingredients (including vitamins; minerals; herbs or other botanicals; amino acids; and other substances) or their constituents  3. Is intended to be taken by mouth as a pill, capsule, tablet, or liquid  4. Is labeled on the front panel as being a dietary supplement WebHealthForYou.Com
  10. 10. Calcium  A diet low in calcium shuts down your body's fat burning ability, say experts. The theory is low calcium intakes inhibits lipolysis (the breaking down of body fat) and increases lipogenesis (the body’s mechanism for storing fat). So when your body doesn't get enough calcium, it triggers fat cells to store fat and get bigger. WebHealthForYou.Com
  11. 11.  Eat lots of dark leafy greens and sea vegetables. If you can’t get enough calcium into your diet from plant sources, calcium supplements have demonstrated that they can be effective. In one 24-week study, obese people who took an 800-mg daily calcium supplement lost significantly more weight than those given a placebo. WebHealthForYou.Com
  12. 12.  If calcium promotes weight loss, does that mean that milk is a good ‘food’ for weight loss.  The problem is that there are just as many studies that suggest that dairy promotes weight gain.  So you may lose weight, but you also lose bone mass! WebHealthForYou.Com
  13. 13. Pyruvate  Animal studies suggest that pyruvate supplementation leads to weight loss by increasing theresting metabolic rate. In human studies, a controlled trial found that by supplementing their diet with 22-44 grams of pyruvate supplements, participants enhanced weight loss and resulted in a greater reduction of body fat in overweight adults consuming a low-fat diet. WebHealthForYou.Com
  14. 14. 7-KETO  Low DHEA levels are primarily associated with aging and a slowing of the body’s metabolism.  Participants in a double-blind trial on the effects of 7- KETO exercised for 45 minutes, three times per week and consumed an 1,800-calorie-per-day diet. After eight weeks, those receiving 7-KETO had lost more weight and lowered their percentage of body fat further than those who took a placebo. WebHealthForYou.Com
  15. 15. Green Tea  Green tea extract is rich in polyphenols (epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG) that may support a weight-loss program by increasing energy expenditure or by inhibiting the digestion of fat in the intestine.  General recommendations say that you should drink about four cups a day for the best health benefits, and to help you lose weight.

  16. 16. 7 Simple Things You Can Do To a Supplement Your Diet WebHealthForYou.Com
  17. 17.  1. Use refined supplements In general, it is better to use herbs before using refined supplements.  2. Use refined supplements only as a kick start. As much as there are studies supporting supplements such as pyruvate and some weight loss, if you use them -- do so only as a kick start and not over the long term.  3. Look for standardized herbal supplements. WebHealthForYou.Com
  18. 18.  4. Don't assume that all herbal products on the market are safe.Even the groups that test herbal supplements aren't obligated to report on products that fail to live up to their standards. Trustworthy groups that certify herbal supplements include ConsumerLab.com, Good Housekeeping and NSF International.  5. Beware of claims that sound too good to be true. If a claim sounds outrageous to you, trust your instinct. No one herbal supplement can possibly address a wide spectrum of health concerns. WebHealthForYou.Com
  19. 19.  6. Be extremely cautious about herbal supplements manufactured outside the United States. Many European herbs are highly regulated and standardized. But toxic ingredients and prescription drugs have been found in some herbal supplements manufactured in other countries. WebHealthForYou.Com
  20. 20.  7. Check the label. Choose products that clearly show how  • The name of the herbal supplement, such as St. John's wort  • The net quantity of contents, for example, 60 capsules  • In certain cases, a disclaimer: "This statement has not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease."  • A Supplement Facts panel, which includes serving size, amount and active ingredient  • Other ingredients, such as herbs and amino acids, for which no daily values have been established  • The name and address of manufacturer, packer or distributor WebHealthForYou.Com
