Fats is a necessity in our lives. Fats helps nutrient absorption, nerve transmission, etc. However, when consumed in excess amount, fats causes weight gain that will lead to health problems like heart problems, high blood pressure and many more. Fats are not created the same. There are fats that is good for our health while some increase our risks of heart disease. We need to replace the bad fats with good fats in our diet.
Saturated fats increases our blood cholesterol as well as LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol). Saturated fats are usually found in meat, dairy, eggs and seafood.

Trans fats also referred as "hydrogenate" liquid oils so that they can withstand better in food production process and have longer shelve life. As a result of hydrogenation, Trans fatty acids are formed. Trans fatty acids are found in many commercial foods such as French Fries from some fast food chains, other packaged snacks such as microwave popcorn as well as in vegetable shortening and hard stick margarine.

Monounsaturated fats however lower total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol (the bad cholesterol) and increase the HDL cholesterol (the good cholesterol). Nut, canola and olive oils are high in monounsaturated fats.

Polyunsaturated fats also lower total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol. Seafood like salmon as well as corn, soy and sunflower oils are high in polyunsaturated fats.

Please avoid using cooking oils that are high in saturated fats and/or trans fats such as coconut oil, palm oil or vegetable shortening. Instead, use oils that are low in saturated fats and high in mono- and polyunsaturated fats such as canola oil, olive oil.

Trim visible fats and skins from meat products.

With better understanding of the types of fats, the rate of obesity can be lowered. Not forgetting with a balance regime of exercise as well.

Metabolism is a way for our body to convert the calories from the food that we eat into energy. Our metabolism slows down with aging. We can raise our metabolism by doing moderate aerobic training. It helps our body by burning more calories.

For those who are too busy to go for aerobic training, every movement helps in burning calories.
For example, if you are going to the supermarket that is 10 minutes from your house why not just walk there. Walking is a good exercise. Climbing the stairs also helps but do not strain yourself.

We should also not skip the most important meal of the day that is breakfast. Breakfast aid in weightloss also. Having a balance in breakfast is very important.Eating half a grapefruit before a meal aids in weight loss.Eating smaller servings, on a frequent basis, helps to keep the metabolic rate constantly heightened, and helps to stabilize blood sugar levels.

A constantly stimulated metabolism means fat-burning over a longer period. Drink plenty of water to detoxify. At least eight glasses.

Lastly get at least six to eight hours of sleep. Lack of sleep will leave you hungry. Remember the metabolism slows down during inactivity. Eating late or in the middle of the night will require your body to work at burning or storing calories. Avoiding late night suppers so as to wakieu up more refreshed & rested. If you have to eat late, eat little & choose carefully!

Metabolism is a very important factor in weight loss. Sluggish metabolism do not help. So in order to lose more weight we need to boost our metabolism.

Recently I had a fall which affected my knee. As I am still in the recovering stage, my doctor advised me to lose the excess weight. I asked how to lose if I am injured on the knee. But he told me that being overweight will put a strain on my knee and it may take a longer time to heal. I gave a thought to what my doctor said and decided to try dieting.
Even though I have tried dieting earlier before my fall, I actually stopped and started to eat and gained the weight back. Whenever I tried to go up a bus or a short flight of stairs, I do feel the pain. I cannot even stand for long because of the pain. I have decided to diet and when it lightens up the weight on my knee I will start exercising. My Doctor recommends that I swim or do aqua aerobics in order to lose weight. Swimming or aqua aerobics won’t put a strain on my leg.

I have two choices either I don’t lose the weight and gain more weight in the process and live with the pain or I can lose the weight and be healthy and hopefully recover and no longer suffer from the pain. I choose to lose the weight. I am determined to do it. I am going to start with the food that I eat. I must try to reduce the fat content in my food.

Used to go for fast foods at least three tomes a week. Need to reduce it the Once a week hopefully. The pain in my knee is a reminder that I really need to lose the weight. Obesity is something to worry about. It can cause also heart problems. So in order to beat obesity, I need to be healthy about what I eat and exercise.

I read in a women magazine recently about a teenager who underwent liposuction. Her reason for undergoing liposuction is that she feels that she is not thin enough. She is only 58 kg and 1.6 in height. I thought that it is under the normal weight range. She told the magazine that the she went to this website http://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeon.com/ and told her parents about having the liposuction there.

I visited the website http://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeon.com/ and saw the before and after photos. She said that after the liposuction, she can fit into the clothes that she wants to wear.

I guess plastic surgery does improve our self-esteem be it liposuction, face lift, nose job and many more. The website http://www.beverlyhillsplasticsurgeon.com/ does not say that liposuction is a weight loss program.
Its more on helping to remove stubborn fats that is not going away no matter what we do.

Today I read the papers about a woman who's insurance refuse to cover for her illness by saying that her kidneys were already failing before she signed up for the insurance coverage. So I decided to surf the web to see whether there is an insurance that does cover people with illnesses.

I found this website http://www.financialone.com/insurance/no-medical-life-insurance and from what I read that it is not impossible for people with illnesses to be covered but with lower coverage.

This website http://www.financialone.com/insurance/no-medical-life-insurance offers hope to people like the women who I read about in the papers. I feel that nobody wants to suffer from any ilnesses.

I have contacted an agent from this website http://www.financialone.com/insurance/no-medical-life-insurance becacause I wish to know more about it.

I may consider taking up another insurance just to be on the safer side just in case mine turn out like the story I just read about.
