Top 10 Weight Loss Tips Part II
Last week in part I, we went over the first 5 tips for weight control, that is: Power Up with Protein, Curb the Crappy Carbs, Fat Friends and Foes, Harmonize Hormones and Move Those Muscles. Read last week’s post here. So we carry on from there. This is a bit of a longer post, but tough to shorten.
6. Crush Cravings
This seems to be the age-old question; why do we have cravings? Cravings are one of the most complicated aspects of weight control. While we may have good intentions, we are easily derailed by uncontrollable cravings.

Nutrition for Detoxification
Why are we toxic?
There has been a heightened awareness that we are exposed to many toxins in the environment since the 1970s with the release of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. I studied it in high school along with many other boomers. You would think after all these years we would have figured out that continually adding new chemicals to our world isn’t a good thing, but it seems we haven’t made to connection to the increased incidences of cancer, MS, heart disease, autoimmune diseases, even obesity. All have been linked to toxicity and we just keep adding news toxins all the time and let the manufacturers tell us they are safe if used in the recommended fashion and then wonder why we are sicker than ever.
Water, Water, Everywhere
We are bombarded with reminders to drink more water, and for good reason. Most people are chronically dehydrated. I have to confess to being in that state more often than I’d like to admit. We get busy or distracted and we just plain forget to drink enough. As these waning days of summer are still hot and dry, we really need to remember to get extra fluid to counteract the effect of the heat.
There is some debate about how much we should drink in a day, but anywhere from 2-3 litres is the standard recommendation depending on water content in our food, weather/temperature, activity level and state of health.
