Question: Is Sushi Healthy for Weight Loss?
Here’s What to Avoid

With a total obesity rate of 3.2%–30% less than in the United
States–it’s safe to say the Japanese know how to stay fit.  Now
recommendations across the country say eating “Japanese” may
be the best way to slim down, but is Japanese cuisine really that
great?  Today we’ll explore Japanese’s most popular dish, sushi,
and if it’s actually a good idea for weight loss.

Do Artificial Sweeteners CAUSE Flab?

 By Rob Poulos On September 24, 2012

Do Artificial Sweeteners CAUSE Flab? (You know, the chemical-sweeteners found in diet soft drinks and thousands of other “healthy foods.”)

Artificial sweeteners like Splenda (sucralose), NutraSweet (aspartame), Sunette (acesulfame K), and Sweet ‘N Low (saccharin) may have serious health consequences and may be causing you to GAIN weight, not lose it.

One University of Texas-San Antonio study linked increased consumption of artificially sweetened diet soda with obesity. (Most diet sodas contain aspartame; a few contain sucralose or other sweeteners.)

“On average, for each diet soft drink our participants drank per day, they were 65 percent more likely to become overweight during the next seven to eight years and 41 percent more likely to become obese,” said Sharon Fowler, MPH, faculty associate in the division of clinical epidemiology.

Also, in a study published in the International Journal of Obesity, researchers fed one group of rats a liquid sweetened with real sugar, and then fed another ...

Caffeine Review – Can You Lose Weight With Caffeine?

 By Rob Poulos On May 29, 2012

One ingredient that is most likely to be found in a wide range of fat burning and weight loss supplements is caffeine. Because it acts as a stimulant it is added to these pills for that quick energy boost it gives. But does caffeine really help you lose weight?

Consuming caffeinated products to lose weight seems counterproductive when you consider what foods and drinks contain this substance—soda and chocolate to name a few. These foods and drinks are high in calories and sugar which makes it unlikely that they can help you lose weight, right?

So how can caffeine in a pill help you lose weight?

What You Should Know

The Most Important Element In Burning Fat: Your Lifestyle

 By Rob Poulos On May 11, 2007

A few years ago I had a pal who always struggled with his weight and would try just about every fad diet or latest exercise gimmick under the sun to remedy his troubles.  He was a low carber for a while.  Then he was doing Tae Bo when that was big.  Next he tried restricting other essential foods in the hope of burning off body fat.  And a few months later, he was back to the low carb routine, but this time almost no carbs.

You know the story…he would tell me he’d been losing weight on his new diet and was all excited about it.  Then a few weeks later when his body just couldn’t stand the restrictions and unusual eating habits, he’d be forced to go off that diet.
