Walking Your Way To Fitness

Achieving fitness is no herculean task as it is made out to be by vested interests. You can simply walk your way to fitness. Unbelievable, isn’t it?

Yes, it should not be difficult to fathom that weight loss is not a tedious process as is often projected by those fancy print and televised advertisements urging you to buy weight loss products or services. Today, a lot of people are slowly but surely understanding the need to lose weight in an organic manner. Weight loss surgeries, medication, injections are all alternatives that you must explore only as a last recourse and under the strict supervision of a qualified medical practitioner.

You must schedule a walking for weight loss plan along with a fat burning diet to achieve remarkable weight loss results without having to go for expensive products and medication. Let us explore both these options in detail:

  • Walking – Unlike running, walking comes minus the fear of any impact injury. The fact that you walk at a brisk pace can have no real impact injury on your knees, ankles and joints. Walking is recommended by most doctors as it helps reduce bad cholesterol and lower your blood pressure. It is however recommended that you must walk for at least 15-20 minutes on a daily basis.
  • Diet – A balanced diet will hold the key and help you achieve quick weight loss results. Your diet must comprise of at least 5 servings of fresh fruits on a daily basis. Cutting down sugar and high calorie food and increasing fibre and proteins is the way forward.

By improving your dietary intake and coming out of a sedentary lifestyle, you can attain weight loss and steer clear of obesity and related complications. Act today before you are caught in the vicious grip of health conditions like heart attack, constipation, diabetes, hypertension, arthritis and liver related diseases.

Garlic and Its Important Role in Quick Weight Loss

In the Four Hour Body book chapter on the PAGG stack supplement, Tim Ferriss says he owes the tip off about garlic for quick weight loss to a helpful homeless guy, passing comments at a restaurant barbeque.  But garlic has been known for centuries around the world, not only as a delicious ingredient in many regional cuisines, but also as a powerful health-giving ingredient.

Considered a natural antibiotic, garlic has had a resurgence in medicine in the light of fears of infection strains that are resistant to pharmaceutical formulations. Indeed it has been recorded as a herbal remedy for infection in Europe dating back to plagues in medieval times!  Often these plagues ravished the UK and northern Europe, sparing those further south who included garlic regularly in their diet.

It is also documented antioxidant, helping to lower levels of the dangerous low-density cholesterol, as well as accelerating the metabolism to act more broadly on weight control concerns – hence the inclusion of garlic in the PAGG stack supplement.  Parts of the world where use of garlic is a regular part of the traditional cuisine, such as in the Mediterranean basin, statistics often correlate with lower incidence of cardiovascular disease and atherosclerosis – the Mediterranean diet is often touted as being great for heart health as well as weight control, for this very reason.

Despite the extensive and compelling anecdotal evidence, scientific trials on garlic often produce contradictory and inconclusive results.  Much remains unknown about the specific biological pathways involved, such as in the cholesterol-reduction effects.  One of the more powerful antioxidant factors in garlic is allicin, but this volatile ingredient is released when the clove is macerated or crushed, yet destroyed completely by cooking or ageing – and few delicious traditional Mediterranean recipes employ large quantities of raw garlic, in fact raw garlic can be hard on the digestion (just as with other raw alliums like onions), and needs to be used in small quantities only.

If there was likely to be any pharmaceutical profit in it of course the scientists could doubtless isolate the various compounds that react and interact in garlic as it behaves in the human body, but as an easily grown natural ingredient that would be unlikely to offer much return on investment, compared to synthetic statins and other products.  But the evidence remains, including Tim Ferriss’ ten years of testing as documented in the Four Hour Body, during the development of the PAGG stack (where aged garlic extract is combined with policosanol, alpha-lipoic acid and green tea flavanols to create a powerful fat-burning supplement).  Aged garlic extract was found by Ferriss to be the most potent and effective way of taking the large quantities needed for best effect, without having to consume it by the bucketload at every meal, or risk the equally-traditional ‘garlic breath’ that fresh extract can produce.  So responsible PAGG stack manufacturers like Pareto Nutrition use exclusively aged garlic extract, in precisely Ferriss’ recommendations, in their world-class product.
