“When going out for fast food, I used to get the large-size value meal. Now, I satisfy a craving by ordering just one item: a small order of fries or a six-piece box of chicken nuggets. So far, I’ve shaved off 16 pounds in seven weeks, and I’m on track to being thinner than my high school self for my 10-year reunion later this year.” —Miranda Jarrell, Birmingham, AL

The truth: While there is one study that found neuromuscular electrical stimulation to have a positive effect on muscle strength and waist girth, weight and body fat still remained the same—not too impressive for a product that costs up to $200. “We can buy all the fitness gizmos and gadgets we want, but the only 100 percent successful weight loss formula out there is a healthy diet and sound exercise program,” says fitness expert and personal trainer Jim White.

Guarana: Guarana has among the highest concentrations of caffeine in any plant; it contain up to 3.5 percent to 5.8 percent caffeine by volume, while coffee only has up to 2 percent. For increased energy and enhanced mental focus, some people use between 200 to 800 milligrams of guarana a day, which seems to be generally safe. However, side effects for some can include those similar to consuming too caffeine, such as difficulty sleeping, indigestion, anxiety, changes in blood pressure, dependence and a quickened heartbeat. Guarana can also interact with medicines like some antidepressants, lithium, sedatives, other stimulants and blood thinners.
As a vegetarian, I find the obsession with protein to be way over stated as well. I will try to eat a bit more protein, with yogurt, a few almonds, occasional lentil, and even I will eat an egg every once in a while. But still, I never hit the protein targets and with no ill effects. As long as you are exercising, your body is going to repair your muscles and you will gain strength.
It should not be used in people with cardiovascular or mental health conditions and, if using it for the first time, start at a lower dose to assess tolerance. Try not to pair with other stimulants at the same time if you are not used to stimulants.
You do have to track everything you eat, which is easy if you’re following a Weight Watchers’ recipe or eating a prepackaged food with the points pre-calculated. It gets a bit trickier when you prepare your own recipes as you have to break down the ingredients and do the math — although that’s certainly simpler if all you’re doing is, for example, grilling a chicken breast and making a salad. And, under the new “Freestyle” program, that’s a meal that could be points-free under the current guidelines, depending upon whether or not the salad is dressed.
Extracted from the roots of the yacon plant, which is native to South America, yacon syrup contains fructooligosaccharides (FOS), which the body can’t digest. It imparts a sweet flavor with about a third of the calories you’d get in sugar.
“When clients come to me, many of them have been through the diet wringer. They’ve tried every fad and gimmick and, of course, they’ve failed to maintain long-term success. The key to weight loss is to never feel like you’re on a diet, because diets don’t work. If you feel deprived, you will never make it past a few weeks. The only way to achieve long-term weight loss is to learn to appreciate food as fuel and slowly replaced processed food that cannot properly energize the body with real food that can. After a while this will become second nature and won’t feel like a daily struggle.” — Laura Burak, MS, RD, CDN

The truth: “When it sounds too good to be true, it usually is,” warns Smith. Olestra was found to cause severe abdominal cramping, gas, and loose stools. (Um, ew.) “It also inhibits the absorption of certain vitamins and nutrients,” Smith adds. Plus, we know now that certain fats are actually good for heart and aid weight loss.

The main struggle with this aspect of dieting is that it gets difficult socially. You want to go out and drink and eat and have a good time, but it’s hard with a glass of water in front of you. This comes down to your will power. If you can’t do it, try to come up with a compromise. Allow yourself diet soda or tea and veggies after hours, for example. That way you don’t feel as excluded when you’re out with friends.

Why do people get different results with this diet plan? Medical conditions can play a big role in weight gain or loss. It is important to understand any medical conditions you may have before going on a diet. Many different issues can lead to abnormal weight gain, including thyroid issues. If this is a concern for you, read this article on hypothyroidism and its effect on weight. Mental health issues can also lead to weight gain or loss.

Probiotics are “good bacteria” found in fermented foods or drinks, and also supplements. These bacteria reside in your gastrointestinal tract (also called the microbiome) and have many functions throughout your body. Research suggests that probiotics have numerous benefits for immune, digestive, hormonal and central nervous system functions. Studies have indicated that there are differences in the microbial composition between obese and non-obese patients, and probiotics are involved in energy homeostasis, regulation of appetite, dietary intake and storage of lipids (fats).
3. Keep your workout efficient and wear a heart rate monitor. If your goals are to lose weight you need to train entirely different then if you are trying to improve your endurance. So why would you leave it as a guessing game if you have a set goal that you want to achieve? My all time favorite model is the “Polar FT 60 Heart Rate Monitor.” My suggestion is to use this tool to aid in an interval training circuit 3x a week followed by cardio intervals. Get off the machines and incorporate stability exercises as well as full body movements into your workouts. This will not only help you improve your stability, strength, endurance, but also target your deep intrinsic muscles that support your core. You will then kill two birds with one stone getting in your strength and cardio training in one shot. By monitoring your heart rate throughout you will leave the gym energized instead of exhausted. AS you start to condition yourself over time you will naturally be forced to challenge yourself in new ways in order to achieve your goals and elevate your heart rate.
Lunges are highly effective in loosing extra body weight as they target the hips and thigh muscles and tones them up. There are different variations of lunges and you should always introduce these variations in your exercise to get the best results.
It may arrive at your front door in just 30 minutes flat, but if Chinese takeout is part of your weekly dinner lineup, it’s likely making it very difficult to shed unwanted pounds. Don’t believe it? Consider this: order of sesame chicken from P.F Chang’s will cost you 890 calories and an entire day’s worth of blood pressure-spiking sodium. The solution? This homemade version, on the other hand, has a fraction of the calories and salt and can get on your kitchen table just as quickly.
In a small skillet heat the remaining ½ teaspoon olive oil on medium low. Whisk the egg whites and eggs together with a tablespoon of water until light and airy and add to the small skillet. Let cook slowly undisturbed until ½ of the eggs have set.
