Testing new diet. It’s called Stone-age Diet :)

It’s called stone-age diet not because it was used by overweight cavemans who wanted to lose some fat :). It was called that because it is based on raw and simple food and ingredients. Very similar to raw diet I mentioned before. But first let’s see what Wikipedia tells about stone-age diet.

“The Paleolithic diet (also called the paleo diet, caveman diet or stone-age diet[1]) is based mainly on foods presumed to be available to Paleolithic humans.[2] Wide variability exists in the way the diet is interpreted.[3] However, the diet typically includes vegetables, fruits, nuts, roots, meat, and organ meats[2] while excluding foods such as dairy products, grains, sugar, legumes, processed oils, salt, and alcohol or coffee.[1] The diet is based on avoiding not just modern processed foods, but rather the foods that humans began eating after the Neolithic Revolution when humans transitioned from hunter-gatherer lifestyles to settled agriculture.[2] The ideas behind the diet can be traced to Walter Voegtlin,[4]:41 and have been popularized more recently in the best-selling books of Loren Cordain.[5]”

I’m testing it for few days already so I don’t have visible effects yet. However I see first (let’s call it) inconvenience. I need eat more raw food to supply my body with proper calories input. Processed food contain more calories per gram. I will stick to stone-age diet for few weeks and see if there are any positive results, otherwise I will be back at gym.



Barbell squats. My new exercise!

Hi guys! Today I would like to share with my new exercise I’ve been doing lately. It’s a barbell squats. This is a great way to burn you fat and what is also very important it shapes you body, makes your muscles stronger and your overall posture looks way better. I also love it for one more reason. 5-10 minutes with barbel squats is equivlent to 30-60 minutes of running. Barbel squat isn’t for beginners, start doing squats without weights, after 2-3 weeks add some small weights like 10-20kg. Below is a great tutorial how to start.

Runing makes you burn calories faster

I’m not a big fan of running but I run 5km twice a week. Runing is great and very simple exercise to burn you calories however it has few cons. It’s time consuming, you need special equipment, you need good weather, you need to go to forested areas, I don’t recommend running in cities.

Below is a great video for beginners. I used advices from that vid and they were very helpfull.

The latests slimming trends

I found on the internet a couple of the latest diet. For this reason, I will not fail you to them at this point to present. Sit comfortably in chairs and enjoy the festival strange nutritional advice. Even I do not know which one is the worst, because they are all equally bad.

Military Diet (diet soldier)

I do not understand what this diet has to do with being a soldier. Perhaps the only name. Authors diets promise a slim few kilos without unnecessary exercise. The plan is written out only four days, also make it suitable for single shot, rather than daily, long-term use. If you have a week to your wedding, and you need to lose a few kilos, it’s something for you. The creators of the diet claim that it is so arranged that it contains nutrients complement each other. As a result, our metabolism will speed up to the dizzying speed and begin to burn everything within ten kilometers.

Examples of this diet breakfast consists of toast, eggs and a banana. Do not ask me how to connect. I was after something like wylądowałabym with his head in the toilet. Other avant-garde combination of flavors to dinner with canned tuna, banana and vanilla ice cream. And here already completely I do not know how you can eat these products together in one giving. It sounds more like a “dish” on otrzęsinach in elementary school than something normal to eat.

I have no idea who invents such a diet. But here you do not add up. The authors do not even offer suggestions of dishes, they write just some random products and order them together to eat. A same products in the diet also have questionable nutritional properties (hot dogs, crackers). It is better to let go and choose something else, for example, HMR diet.
HMR diet

The diet was invented by a psychologist. Which of course does not mean it is healthy. Its main theme is based on the fluids is sheiks and eating energy bars. So the very beginning is tragic. HMR also requires movement, but a small. Several minutes walking a day is enough. It’s like to go a few times to the toilet and back.

The diet consists of two phases, the first is designed to help in losing weight as quickly as possible, the second begins when you reach your dream weight and is to stabilize our habits.

This diet is low in calories, so you know that her lose weight. The problem there is that does not teach correct eating habits, only strict adherence to a predetermined plan. And these diets are doomed to fail. So you lose weight but then die in agony.
Cleanup Green Smoothie

A very popular topic, or smoothie, had his five minutes in the year 2014, when this book came out of treatment with the help of bad green cocktails. This book became a bestseller and sold out in millions of copies. But what of that, if the proposed diet is more fasting than nutrition. After a few days of drinking the same smoothie tasting like a snail mucus, it will start running out of energy and you’ll faint.

It is worth mentioning that our liver and kidneys do not need any booster-purifiers. Same great cope with the purification of the body, to this end are created. Basics of biology to bow.

I do not mind drinking a smoothie. If these drinks are part of a balanced diet and a supplement to it, can be a very nice vitamin injection. But it must be something complementary, not the basis of the diet.

Skinny Fat

Today we look at a very popular phenomenon called skinny fat. Many girls still says, “I do not need to practice, yet I am slim.” In most cases, the exercise they need immediately.

Cases skinny fat people are the most common in girls. Young girls who got lucky in the struggle of good gene pool, are naturally slim. If at his thinness does not care about proper diet and opijają with alcohol and eat the same junk food, their body becomes just a skinny body fat. At the beginning they look ok, because genes hold their body in check. However, after several years of such treatment fast food and alcohol, the body can not withstand the pressure of unhealthy elements and begins to change. Apparently, at first glance you can not see the changes. Those very skinny fat look good in clothes. They seem to be slim and graceful at all. But when a girl take off her clothes covering, we will see something terrible.

Sagging skin, slender body, unattractive shape, cellulite. These are the signs of being a lean fat man. This appearance comes from the fact that the person eats badly and in general do not exercise. It does not almost no muscle tissue, has for many fat. Whereby a mass of fat in the body is high, despite a low weight. To this figure are two routes: a devastating lifestyle and lack of exercise, or debilitating slimming low-calorie diet (eg. Diet 1,000 calories or less).

What is the solution? Proceedings exactly the opposite to what we did before. So – attention attention – here again a surprise, a good diet and going to the gym. First of all, we need to start with a good, calorie diet. At the gym, we do not need necessarily to go, but if not in the gym, we still have to do some strength training, even at home. Doing aerobic exercise, for example. Running, cycling, only worsen our condition skim the fat man, so do not exaggerate them. It is the same with weight lifting. We can not do the exercises with low loads with a large number of repetitions, because I do not get out of our silhouette that way. We can not cut our calorie diet. We need to start eating normally of 2000 kcal and more.

Note that similar to what I described a moment ago is a lot of advice on slimming of the popular glossy magazines. This type of silly advice you can find in any store. Cut calorie, do a million cardio, lift light weights with a million repetitions. And the recipe for being skinny fat man ready.

Myths about slimming and losing weight

I will present in this entry are some myths about weight loss. Many people believe strange things when it comes to losing weight. I think we should lighten up a few inaccuracies. So for future generations.

Myth 1 – Eating your last meal of 18

Yes, but probably only for the person who puts up early, eg. About 22. If you lie down after midnight, as most eating the last meal of 18 does not make any sense. Just you hungry before bedtime. You will not be able to sleep until finally you go to the fridge for a snack. Not the way. The last meal we eat 2-3 hours before going to bed to be had time to digest.
Myth 2 – find low-fat low-calorie product =

No. The product, which is low in fat can have a lot of calories. Calories can come from protein (pretty good), complex carbohydrates (good) or simple carbohydrates (bad). So do not fall for this trick marketing.
Myth 3 – Carbohydrates are bad

No. Simple sugars are “bad” because it is the same energy, empty calories with no nutritional value. Complex sugars are in turn valuable for health. Absolutely worth incorporate into your diet.
Myth 4 – Obese parents determine childhood obesity

Not entirely true. If you have obese parents you may have a tendency to gain weight. But in any case it is not a verdict that was pronounced and from which nothing you can do. Our genes are only part of who we are. Many other things we can control ourselves.
Myth 5 – The effect of yo-yo dieting is always at

Not necessarily. If weight loss is in a bad way, too quickly, using some stupid diet is like most. Do not think that when you’re starving for several days, then it will not be you want to eat. The same is the use of a super complicated diet where you have to constantly count calories. Keyed resources will get tired of diet and start eating again. It is the yo-yo effect. If you enter a good diet, you will chudła slowly and can keep it to the end of life, there is no option for the yo-yo effect.
Myth 6 – Training 7 days a week

It does not make sense. No one normal would not train. Only the przeforsujesz and did not lose weight. I train every other day. One day in the effort and the other to rest. The body needs to recover after exercise. If your workouts are too hardcore, you begin to burn your muscle and not fat.
Myth 7 – Eating cold ice cream gives a negative calories

No, there is no such thing as negative calories. It is so stupid theory that ice cold to warm the body must do more work than to burn them. It’s not true. Heating of the ice cream is an expense few calories, if someone wanted to be a convert. Now count the calories if they have ice cream.
Myth 8 – Losing weight by not eating breakfast

Absolutely not! If skipping breakfast, you are doing yourself more harm than good. Skipping breakfast just contributes to weight gain. The body does not get anything to eat in the morning and starts saving mode stocks. In the afternoon and evening we’ll have to bounce your not eating breakfast with a vengeance, and translate into extra kilos. Always eat some breakfast in the morning. Always.
Myth 9 – Fruits are good for fat loss

Some fruit will not hurt. But in general, fruits are nothing good in large quantities. They have little nutritional value, but they are also a huge inventory of simple sugars. So those who want as little as possible. Therefore, nothing will happen if the limit in our diet fruit.
Myth 10 – The more restrictive the diet, the better the effect

I think yo-yo effect, then yes, hehe. As far as the effect of slimming, it is not. Restrictive diets replant with reducing calories and thus resemble a hunger strike. The body is directed towards the emptying, reduced health and metabolic disorders arise. With the weight loss it is that the slower the better. And the effects can be maintained for longer.

Lose belly fat. How to get sixpack

The eternal question asked by the user for various websites and magazines readers youth. “Dear Bravo, I want to lose weight on the stomach. I do crunches for two months but it does not work. Next I’m fat and I weigh a hundred kilos. Help please! “


Let’s start at the beginning of a crackdown on the first, the most important myth concerning weight loss on the stomach. Well, there is no such thing as selective fat burning. In other words, it does not make sense to do crunches. It’s only works with the muscles that increases the muscle that you exercise. On the other hand, with regard to the fat, the combustion mechanism is completely different. Examples of crunches exercises isolated. This means that they use at one time, only one batch of muscles. For this reason, this exercise does not make sense.

To lose weight, we must do exercises like most global muscles. They are called exercises base. During their exercise we engage multiple muscle groups at once and our bodies quickly burn stored fat. Class isolated are suitable for sculpting the muscles, and not to burn fat. That is why crunches do not give when it comes slimmer belly. Because as far as they burn a little fat, it will burn him with the whole body and not the abdomen. And burn it much less effective than other exercises. It’s in a nutshell.
From the belly does not light

From the belly is a problem. Because fat is burned in it at the end. Of course there are some minor genetic differences that modify the rate of combustion and adding extra fat individual body parts. Each of us is slightly different. However, generally, in most cases, for most of us it is the fat on the belly will be the most difficult to throw off. This is the last milestone perfect figure. Everything is perfect but the belly yet. But they all share the same so do not worry about it.
let’s get to the point

Okay, it was yet another chapter in somewhat lengthy introduction. Let’s get to specifics. How to lose belly? How to get rid of donuts?

Well the answer to this question would be very surprising: diet and exercise. Probably all might be thinking now: “srsly? Diet and exercise? Everyone always says the same thing. ” Exactly. Because it is the most effective method. Well, unless you prefer liposuction, then I invite you to a surgeon.

We start from the diet. First, do not eat sugar. Carbohydrates are ok but not simple sugars. So a zero sweeten tea, soft drinks and zajadania the batonikami. In addition, be sure to protein in their diet. But do not pass on the high-protein diet, they just eat protein. For this fiber, lots of fiber. Fiber is good.

Ok, we already have a good diet. That was fast. Quick and easy. Nieprzekombinowane things are the best. Now for the good exercise.

What is best for slim? Well, as what – cardio.

Running, swimming, cycling, jumping.

If you can, run around using HIIT, or do intervals. But this training is quite strenuous, also is not for everyone. Generally speaking, do the aerobic training which suits you. It does not matter which one you choose. It is important to choose the one that you like. Then you will have the motivation to exercise and do not stop after a week. Continuous use of less effective method is better than the use of the most effective methods for a week.
Specific strength training

Ok, now it’s time to exercise on the SILC. We do these exercises: deadlifts, squats with a barbell, pull-up on the stick. Oh no. Again, the most classic exercises you can imagine!

But this Kasia gives the nightmarish advice! “Even you could write about the barbell bench press for the chest, then would be complete!”

The only pity is that these exercises are effective. I know that no one likes such. Deadlift but no sorry, you need a break.

See what exercises will make every bodybuilder, strongman like. It will be deadlifts and squats with a barbell. Somehow these people win all the competitions, so unless you know how to practice, hm? This does not mean that if you perform these exercises it will grow like monsters and you przykoksowane. There is no chance of a girl. You have a woman’s hormones, which will not allow you to it. You can do these exercises a year, and so will look feminine. If you want to look like a coke to take for anabolic steroids.

If you are not yet able to meet this demanding, but the best exercises, I suggest a few simple. Try to do some pocket knives, plank or pounosić legs lying. These exercises are also good. Maybe not nearly as good as the previous but for the novice girls will be sufficient.

Raw diet

Raw diet. Food without any processing. That is, what nature gave us. We take it and eat. It sounds interesting. Is it possible to eat healthy without cooking, frying, baking and other forms of heat treatment?

According to the principles of this diet, yes you can. I do not need you probably remember what miracles can do it in your life. But I mention that because it always amuses me.  And additionally benefits from the sphere of psychological, that are hard to verify:

better mood
no depression
greater motivation
increased activity
more energy
improved memory and concentration

Those involved more passionate about raw diets declare that it heals some types of cancer, incurable type of multiple sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, diabetes, and anything else that happened to fall into such a person to mind.

Instead of doing a classic vehicle after the diet and point out all the flaws, I’ll do something else. This particular diet, as compared to the other is not so bad. Well-behaved she would be a good alternative to today’s diets based on processed products and highly invasive methods of heat treatment of the type of frying. At least it is not the type of diet, fruitarianism which allows to consume only one type of food and discards all the other uselessly. Here we have a large room to maneuver and can eat almost anything. Fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, nuts, seeds, animal products, eg. Milk. This is pretty good.

The problem with this diet is the same as with most other popular diets. This diet unnecessarily accept dogmas and apply them as a starting point to create its principles. It does not look at it that ultimately counts human health and not the blind pursuit of perfect adherence to the diet. Here dogma is that raw food is healthy and the food processing is unhealthy.

If you choose a diet, think what you have in this goal. Your goal should be to eg. Health, prettier silhouette, better mood, better life. Not stosujcie diet in order to have with what we identify with. Last I see that more and more people are on a diet to be on a diet. To be able to show off in front of your friends a super strict diet. Of course, developed by Dr. dietetics from Azerbaijan with an exotic name. To feel better than others. Because my diet is better than yours and you’re stupid lemmings that you eat what everybody.

Do not get caught up in it. Choose the diet that will give you the results you want to achieve. If you notice that after a month of use of a new diet none of this will zrezygnujcie and choose some other. Everyone is different, and different people fit different diets. Each person likes different food. You have to test it a little before the diet will be both healthy and tasty. And above all, one that will not be a punishment.

Please do not be senseless fanatic vegetarianism, raw foodingu diet Copenhagen or any other. If you want to be a follower, subscribe to the church. Do not interfere ideology to his health. Do not be like the holy missionary who necessarily have to convince everyone to his dietoreligii and drag any unbeliever at his side.
