OLD WIVES’S TALES ABOUT DIET AND WEIGHT LOSS

Hi ya Gorgeous,
In this season of transition as I am moving into full time film making and part time blogging - I post on Mondays. But! This guest post of information on dieting is so good, I needed to share now. Enjoy!




An estimated 45 million Americans go on a diet each year, and Americans spend $33 billion each year on weight loss products. Yet, nearly two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese. With all of this money expended, why are so many people unable to lose weight?   

Dr. Christopher Calapai is, a New York City Osteopathic Physician board certified in family and anti-aging medicine. He says that, “People are dealing with dieting information overload. It is hard to know what is sound weight loss advice and what is a myth.”   He sets the record straight on some of our most commonly held diet and weight loss myths.

You can eat whatever you want if you workout
Unfortunately, a half hour on the treadmill isn’t going to help you lose weight if you reward yourself by downing a few slices of cake and an order of French fries. The treadmill told you that you burned off 500 calories, but those estimated machine readouts are not always accurate.  It’s near impossible to out-exercise a bad diet unless you plan to spend half your day in the gym. You must workout and eat smart to see results.

Organic food is diet food.
The word organic is enticing, but it’s also misleading. Organic means a food is grown without pesticides or other chemicals and is not genetically modified. But it says absolutely nothing about the nutrient value of the food itself, or whether it’s a good dietary choice, or whether it has excessive fat, sugar, or starch. Organic sugar is still sugar. Organic white flour is still white flour. Organic butter is still butter and organic lard is still lard.

You Can Lose 10 Pounds in 2 Weeks.
You probably can lose 10 pounds in two weeks if you crash-diet, but that pace is rarely sustainable.  Most of the weight will return once you start eating normally. To truly lose 1 pound, you need to “eliminate” 3,500 calories—the amount stored in a pound of fat—by eating less and moving more. If you cut 500 calories (or cut 300 and burn 200 through exercise) every single day of the week, you’ll lose about a pound a week. And that’s real weight loss.

Cleanses and detoxes are a good way to jump-start a diet.

Nobody needs to detox.
Unless you've been poisoned, you have a built-in, super-efficient system for filtering out most of the harmful substances you eat. It's made up of two toxin-bashing organs: the liver and the kidneys. Our kidneys filter our blood and remove any waste from our diet, and our livers process medications and detoxify any chemicals we ingest. Paired together, these organs make our bodies natural cleansing powerhouses.


You can’t eat after 8pm
It doesn't matter what time of day you eat. It is what and how much you eat and how much physical activity you do during the whole day that determines whether you gain, lose, or maintain your weight. No matter when you eat, your body will store extra calories as fat. If you want a snack before bedtime, think first about how many calories you've eaten that day.

You must keep your blood sugar topped up, and eat little and often to achieve it

 This is one of the least accurate bits of advice. Every time you eat a carbohydrate, and your blood glucose levels rise, the body needs to release a substance called insulin (from the pancreas) to return your blood glucose levels to normal. Any “topping up” simply places a demand on the body to get the blood glucose levels back down again. This might be the  reason for the explosion in type 2 diabetes – the body is asked to release insulin too much, too often and has no way of recognizing some of the foreign substances we consume in modern man-made food.


Wait Until You're Hungry to Eat.
Myth!: By waiting to eat until you're very hungry, your hunger simply builds and builds until it's all consuming, causing your appetite to spiral out of control. In fact, new research reveals that by skipping breakfast, you'll end up eating more calories in total and making less healthy food choices throughout the day than you would have otherwise. Research also shows that forgoing breakfast activates your body's insulin response, triggering fat storage and weight gain.

FACE atelier Ultra Skin - My Review

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Say hello and welcome to the month of August! This year, 2017, is now officially more than half over and Christmas is only 146 days away.

 With that in mind and upcoming holiday events and photos - it may be time to try a new face product, so meet FACE atelier Ultra skin foundation.

 Many many thanks to them for sending me a sample in the color 6.  I love the lightweight feel and  texture. The finish is beautiful and dries down to a soft powder that can be built up from sheer to full coverage. I really like the look and  feel, though, I experienced a series of pimples and breakouts along my lower cheeks and jawline.

Gack! I really like the product but won't be able to continue using it because it took a full week to heal the breakout and I had to work like crazy during that time and I can't risk another breakout. I know for me, when I saw that the silicone was a major ingredient in this PETA approved product, I knew right then that I was risking a pimple or two.

It's worth a try, and a sample can be purchased from their website so you can try it before committing to the $50.00 full size price.



Meet Ultra Skin - the ultimate lightweight foundation!  Its silicone-based formula perfects the skin with a long-lasting satin finish with light to medium buildable coverage. The creamy, soufflĂ©-like texture produces an airbrush-like result and is perfect if you want a foundation that can be applied like a moisturizer without compromising performance.  Ultra Skin's 11 shades cover the lightest to richest complexions and are color-matched to award-winning Ultra Foundation. There are three new shades - .5, 8.5,11.5 – that can be also used to adjust Ultra Foundation shades.
No primer needed!  It's built into Ultra Skin's sophisticated formula that also has soft-focus properties, diminishing the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The flawless, satin finish doesn't need powder to set and thanks to the silicone-based formula, it's ideal for mature, troubled or sensitive skin. Read more about silicones.
Ultra Skin works in perfect harmony with the FACE atelier’s complete complexion range, including Ultra Foundation’s beloved adjusters: 0-, 0+, 0++ and Heat. The pump applicator and tube make it perfect for travel or a pro kit. Suitable for all skin types, water and sebum resistant Ultra Skin performs brilliantly in hot, humid and arid climates.
