10 Signs That Shows You May Need To Lose Weight

Time flies! Even if you’re good at at planning, or you thought your body won’t change much, our work, business, kids, partner and even rest takes a whole lot our time. And these leave no time for exercise and healthy eating. If you aren’t paying attention to your body, that’s when your weight can easily creep up without you noticing. Take back control of your body by using our top 10 signs you may actually need to lose weight.

10. You always have that feeling.

We usually have all the answers if we just pay attention. Is the voice in your head whispering to you? Do you tell yourself …

  • My clothes seem tighter.
  • I haven’t used my gym membership in a while.
  • I am eating a lot of junk lately.
  • I think I go out to eat too much.
  • When was the last time I exercised?

Oftentimes we know that we need to lose weight, we just don’t want to admit it to ourselves. We have to get quiet long enough to listen to what our intuition is telling us. You probably already have the answer; it’s just tough to be honest when you don’t like the answer. Ignoring something you know you need to do only contributes to your stress and takes a mental toll. Once you make the shift from worry to action, you can drop the emotional and physical weight.

9. Your Doctor or your numbers tell you. Your Doc says you have high blood pressure or high cholesterol and/or you should pay attention to the extra fat. Excess fat especially belly fat can increase your risk of heart diseases, Type 2 diabetes, and result in high cholesterol and high blood pressure, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Weight loss can take your numbers right back down into a healthy range. According to the National Heart, Blood and Lung Institute (NHBLI), inactive people are nearly twice as likely to develop heart disease as those who are more active.

8. Your partner often complains that you snore.

Your snoring could wake the dead, and you constantly wake up groggy. If you snore like crazy and rarely get a good night’s sleep, you may suffer from sleep apnea, a condition in which irregular breathing disrupts your sleep. Excess weight can bring it on: When your body stores fat around the neck, it can narrow the airway to cause shallow breathing or pauses in breathing.

7. You’ve gained a weight every year since before you can remember. When you’re growing, it’s normal to gain weight over time. But if your weight continues to soar after your height peaks, you may need behavioral changes to steady the scale and avoid all the sucky symptoms.

6. Your knees, hips, and back hurt. Excess weight can put extra pressure on the joints, which wears down the tissue around them and makes moving uncomfortable, according to information from the National Institutes of Health.

5. You’re Tired All The Time. Internal inflammation caused by excess fat can lead to a constant state of fatigue. If you have much weight, and routine tasks like shopping or simple home chores exhaust you, your extra pounds could be the culprit.

4. You’re pretty much always hungry, even though you eat plenty. Of course, this could be a sign that you’re eating the wrong foods which lack the fiber, protein, and healthy fat that keep you full. But it could also be a sneaky symptom of insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes — especially if you’ve been overweight for years, plus blurry vision, tingling, or numbness in your hands and feet, extreme thirst, or unusually frequent pit stops, according to the American Diabetes Association. Over time, excess weight can trigger these conditions, while weight loss can reverse them. (Obviously see your doctor for a formal diagnosis though).

3. Even the tiniest bit of exercise gets you out of breath. Do you often get breathless with just regular activities or walking up your stairs at home? As you gain weight, your respiratory capacity for muscle function decreases, according to The National Institute of Health. Breathlessness is associated with inactivity a sign that your heart and lungs aren’t getting the workout they need to operate optimally.

2. You notice your clothes don’t fit anymore. You love putting on your comfy jeans until they are no longer comfy. If your clothes are suddenly too tight or they don’t fit at all, it’s likely a sign you’ve put on some weight. Your favorite jeans can be a gauge to your weight.

1 . You feel depressed. This is characterized by not wanting to leave the house, feel bad about yourself, ignore friends messages and calls. This is serious and you have been wishing it can all change.

Natural supplements vs Synthetic supplements

The supplements or drugs we take can be generally classified into two categories; natural and synthetic. Which one should we always go for then? Of course they are no match when compared because natural always comes up top, we have to go with what works well with our body, but I want to really compare them here for the normal person to understand and a decision on what you take into your body.

The main advantage of natural supplements over Synthetic supplements is that natural supplements come from food sources, as their name indicates. Since natural supplements come from food-based sources, your body has a better idea of what to do with them. As a result, you can expect that your body will be able to absorb the nutrition that they contain more readily than it can when you consume supplements that have artificial ingredients.

Artificial ingredients can be found in many supplements that have a “natural” label. Often these products work to pass themselves off as being “natural.” It is necessary to be on the lookout for such labels if you want to get the most out of your supplements and drugs. Often times drugs and supplements will add in colorings, preservatives and chemicals. These are things that your body doesn’t need, and they should be avoided.

Supplements composition

Excipients and fillers

Most if not all drugs and supplements are made up of what are called Excipients and fillers. They are the “glue” which bind and stabilize a supplement. Historically they have been considered to be without any medicinal influence. This assumption has allowed their use to be wide-spread with little regard for their actual influence. Excipients, for example have been found to initiate or participate in chemical and physical interactions which can compromise the efficacy of a drug or supplement. Excipients and fillers can influence the efficacy and quality of supplement and drugs and are best avoided when choosing supplements. The common types of excipients and fillers include:

  • Anti-adherents: these are used to prevent product from sticking or adhering to machines in the manufacturing plant, thereby decreasing waste and increasing profitability for companies.
  • Binders: Binders hold the ingredients in a tablet together.
  • Coatings: Tablet coatings protect tablet ingredients from deterioration by moisture in the air and make large or unpleasant-tasting tablets easier to swallow.
  • Colours: Colours are added to improve the appearance of a formulation.
  • Disintegrants: Disintegrants expand and dissolve when wet causing the tablet to break apart in the body.
  • Flavours: Flavours can be used to mask unpleasant tasting active ingredients and improve the acceptance that the patient will complete a course of medication. Flavorings may be natural (e.g. fruit extract) or artificial.
  • Fillers and diluents: these add bulk to products making very small active components easy for consumer to take.
  • Preservatives: preservatives are used to extend the shelf-life of products and prevent degradation, oxidation, bacterial growth etc.

The major concern with the use of some excipients and fillers in nutraceuticals and pharmaceuticals is their ability to interact to the medicinal ingredients, hence influence the reliability of products. With chemical and physical interactions occurring within a supplement it is difficult to determine the exact efficacy of the product remaining. Interactions can render the active ingredient less active and make it less bioavailable (less available for the body to use).

When choosing supplements it is important to choose professional brand products that avoid the use of harmful excipients and fillers. This will prevent any adverse effects, but also will enhance therapeutic response as bioavailability of products will not be affected.

Free Radicals


We can’t start the process of living a healthy lifestyle without the knowledge of the word, FREE RADICALS. These are what no… and I mean no human being on earth can run away from, so you understand what I mean by you have to have a knowledge of them. Well, I’m going to make the explanation as simple as possible for the common person

Free radicals always seek to complete themselves

Our mitochondria, which operate like little factories in our cells, are responsible for burning fuel from food and producing energy in each of our cells were, this process can cause what is called Oxidative stress, oxygen in the body splits into single atoms with unpaired electrons. Electrons like to be in pairs, so these atoms, called free radicals, scavenge the body to seek out other electrons so they can become a pair. This causes damage to cells, proteins and DNA.

Freelance radicals can form in the body in a number of ways

  • Environmental exposure – Carcinogens like radiation from the sun, cigarette smoke, air and water pollution, pesticides and herbicides in the food we eat, asbestos and other nasties can cause free radical formation in our bodies.
  • Exercise – Well this is surprising because while consistent moderate exercise has many positive benefits, excessive exercise or inconsistent but vigorous exercise uses a high amount of the body’s oxygen store and as a result, generates excessive free radicals. So we have to make our exercises as consistent as possible.
  • Stress – Some chemicals created by mental stress can create free radicals.
  • Our bodies – Free radical molecules are a natural byproduct of cell metabolism.
  • Alcohol – Consumption of alcohol of any kind of any amount produces free radicals in the body.
  • Fat – Polyunsaturated fat like that found in vegetables oils is easily oxidized in the body and can create free radicals.

Oxidative stress can damage the body’s cells, leading to a range of diseases and causes symptoms of aging, such as wrinkles.

Various studies and theories have connected oxidative stress due to free radicals to:

  • central nervous system diseases, such as Alzheimer’s and other dementias cardiovascular disease due to clogged arteries
  • autoimmune and inflammatory disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and cancer cataracts and age-related vision decline
  • age-related changes in appearance, such as loss of skin elasticity, wrinkles, graying hair, hair loss, and changes in hair texture
  • diabetes genetic degenerative diseases, such as Huntington’s disease or Parkinson’s

How to fight free radicals

Antioxidants are proven to reduce free radicals

Remember, not all free radicals are bad, they help in break down of energy in the body and can also act as antibodies fighting foreign diseases in the body but accumulation of free radicals can cause problems and with our society today, they’re always accumulated.

Antioxidants are molecules which can safely interact with free radicals and terminate the chain reaction before vital molecules are damaged. Although there are several enzyme systems within the body that disarm free radicals, the principal antioxidants are vitamin E, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and selenium.

When these antioxidants neutralize free radicals by donating an electron particle they are left with a small problem. The antioxidants are now missing an electron and have become free radicals themselves. The body cannot manufacture these antioxidants, so they must be supplied in your diet.

I am going to explain the type of antioxidants and medicines you should take and introduce some of those types in upcoming posts.

Health is Wealth!

“When health is absent, wealth is useless”

Herophilus an ancient Greek physician

It’s a vicious cycle: Money is one of the greatest causes of stress, prolonged stress can lead to serious health issues, and health issues often result in yet more financial struggles. The clear connection between health and wealth is why it’s so important to develop and maintain lifelong plans to manage both.
