Maricela answers:

Would you consider Boys and Girls town? They will provide a home, rent free, food, water, gas, and electricity. You would be responsible to provide guidance, parenting, and whatever to children that live in the home. They will also provide a live in counselor. Really good job for husband and wife that really care about children that can benefit from their experience raising kids and that truly need guidance.

Paul asks…

Are there any free trials or free offers for weight loss pills or diet?

I’m looking for free samples, offers, or trials for weight loss
that can include magazines and such also

Thanks!

Maricela answers:

You can get free samples of stuff from http://www.freegrabber.com. They have all kinds of free sample offers, you can search through the categories and see if any match what you are looking for. If you plan to use the site a lot, I suggest getting a second email address to fill out the forms with. That way you don’t get all the spam to your primary email and if they say you have to check your email you can.

Carol asks…

Does anyone have weight loss success story after stopping zoloft? I have put on weight on it despite dieting?

I also exercise regularly. I am convinced it is the Zoloft that has caused the weight gain. Please, I would only like to hear from people with personal experience of weight loss after stopping Zoloft. No diet or exercise advice. I have tried it all!

Maricela answers:

I totally understand what your talking about my mother has been on Zoloft for over a year now and recently she has stopped taking it. My mother has gained close to 30 pounds since she stopped taking it!

This has really been a struggle for her since she has never had a weight loss problem!

I too have tried to help her lose weight buy trying diet plans and diet pills.

We recently have got her on a Caloric Restrictor that reduces the amount of calories she takes in. That has helped her lose a few pounds a week. Its a miracle

I dont know if its right for you let me ask you a few questions.

How much weight do you want to lose?

Are you looking to lose weight without having to diet or exercise ?

Are you looking for something to help eliminate random cravings? Or stop overeating?

How fast are you looking to lose weight?

Do you carry most of your weight around the middle?

I understand what your looking for something that can help you lose weight a little faster than diet and exercise. Diet and exercise works but if you need to start losing weight like next week .

Cause you could start using a Caloric restrictor that automatically restricts the amount of calories in your body.

These caloric restictors even work without diet or exercise and even eliminates cravings for foods.

But if you do diet and exercise you will see even better results!I know people who lose 20 pounds in a month.

So you can still eat your regular foods but you’ll take in less calories and start losing a few pounds a week. Is that what your looking for?

She is using 2 capsules twice a day before i eat and I notice it reduces my appetite and its helped me burn the fat of my tummy and mainly my middle section.

Akavar helps with Stress, metabolism, overeating.

Plus its made with vitamins and herbs. Even if you want some free information on this caloric restrictor check http://www.akavarpills.com

Hope this helps

Donald asks…

Is it safe to drink weight loss protein shake’s while breastfeeding?

My baby is about to turn 3 month’s old and i still have the postpartum pregnancy weight, and i am trying to lose it or at least lose a couple of pounds. I do plan to exercise but along with it i would like to have an additional supplement, like the protein shake. Would this somehow affect my baby in any way?

Is there any healthy weight loss milkshake that does not contain to many chemicals?

Maricela answers:

It would depend on the particular product you’re using. You have to be very careful about using supplements because they have almost no federal controls and many have been found to be of poor quality, contain contaminents, etc. It’s much better for you and for baby to get your protein from real food. And, don’t forget, protein has the same caloric value as pure sugar…4 cals/gm. Here’s the story.

Here’s what you need to know about protein supplements.

The most popular protein supplements are no more than milk with the nutrition extracted leaving the whey which is then sold for several times the amount you would pay for dehydrated milk. The result is you get less nutrition and spend more money. How does that make sense?

Your body does not store protein as it does fat. It makes the protein it needs when it needs it. And, if you’re building muscle, it needs it over the entire recovery time between workouts and not just before or just after working out. That makes the idea of dumping a bunch of protein into your system at one time senseless.

Most people grossly overestimate the amount of protein they need. Here’s how much you need according to the experts at the US National Institute of Health via the CDC. –> http://www.cdc.gov/nutrition/everyone/basics/protein.html#How%20much%20protein . Most people in the developed world get that amount of protein in their daily diet because it amounts to no more than a glass of milk, some beans, and a piece of meat. Excess protein is just wasted and most will be excreted by the body or used as fuel supporting fat gain.

Protein supplements are also bad for diets because they are not whole food, have almost no fiber, still contribute calories, but cannot provide the satisfaction and appetite suppression of a natural digestive process. Protein has the same number of calories per gram as sugar.

Here’s why protein shakes should be avoided:

• They are not carefully controlled by the FDA as are foods and drugs.
• They may have harmful or undesirable side effects.
• May contain metabolically or biologically unavailable proteins because of processing.
• Will probably provide more protein than you need with the rest going to waste.
• Can unbalance a diet and upset the macronutrient ratios.
• Provide you with extra and unnecessary calories.
• May contain junk food ingredients to make them tasty.
• Possibly provide you unwanted contaminants or toxins. FDA does not require testing.
• Are overpriced and waste money.
• Can ruin a fat loss diet.
• Replaces what you really need – good food!

The secret to building muscle, burning fat, and eating healthy is very simply to eat the correct and optimal amount of whole and varied foods as recommended by the US National Institute of Health. Now here are some references from the experts.

Here is what the US National Institute of Health warns about supplements. “Always check with your health care provider before taking a supplement, especially when combining or substituting them with other foods or medicine.”
Ref: http://ods.od.nih.gov/Health_Information/ODS_Frequently_Asked_Questions.aspx#Need

Here’s a white paper which debunks the myth of the protein supplement. Note the following excerpt…“At present there is no evidence to suggest that supplements are required for optimal muscle growth or strength gain.”
Ref: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15212752

Here’s one more study to read. Note the excerpt…”Consumption of a recovery drink (whey protein, amino acids, creatine, and carbohydrate) after strength training workouts did not promote greater gains in FFM (Fat free muscle) compared with consumption of a carbohydrate-only drink.”
Ref: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15105028

Here’s what Consumer Reports had to say…”But our investigation, including tests at an outside laboratory of 15 protein drinks, a review of government documents, and interviews with health and fitness experts and consumers, found most people already get enough protein, and there are far better and cheaper ways to add more if it’s needed. Some protein drinks can even pose health risks, including exposure to potentially harmful heavy metals, if consumed frequently. All drinks in our tests had at least one sample containing one or more of the following contaminants: arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury. Those metals can have toxic effects on several organs in the body.”

Helen asks…

Is trampolining a good exercise for weight loss?

I’m quite unfit, haven’t really exercised since I left school. I love to swim, but I get cramp soooo often when swimming it wrecks it for me (being stuck in water 2 m deep and nowhere near the side with cramp is not fun!!). So is trampolining good for weight loss if I do 3 x 10 minute bursts a day ( I can’t stand any more at my fitness level yet, I get out of breath so easily!!) ?
Thanks!

Maricela answers:

Yes, it is. Here are some other good weight loss exercises you may want to try also:

Walking
Walking is great. No expertise or equipment is required, you can do it anytime and it’s free! What’s more, provided you do it regularly and for long enough, walking can be just as beneficial as any of the more vigorous activities (like jogging etc).

How to start
Take a 10 minutes walk, twice a day.

Gradually extend yourself
Walk every day
Walk longer
Walk faster
Walk and swing your arms at the same time
Walk up one or two gentle slopes
Walk up steeper slopes

Ideally
Aim to walk briskly (swinging your arms) for 30 minutes, each day. This should include at least one reasonably steep slope. Please note: This may take you several months to achieve, so don’t be in a hurry. Remember, exercise is for LIFE!

Swimming
For most people, especially those who are very overweight, swimming is even better than walking.

How to start and then extend yourself
Similar to walking, start by going to the pool twice a week for a gentle 15 minute swim. Gradually increase the length of your swim, and your work rate while in the water. Aim to build up to about 30 minutes a day, or 45 minutes twice a week.

Cycling/cycle-machine, or Jogging
Your aim is the same as for walking or swimming. Start with a short easy routine – 10-15 minutes per day and gradually work up to about 30 minutes a day. Gradually increase your work rate, without ever straining yourself. If jogging, please invest in a good pair of running shoes that offer cushioned support.

Exercise or Aerobics classes
These classes can be great fun. Moreover, many fitness centers offer a variety of classes to suit a variety of fitness levels. Definitely worth checking out!

Exercise at home
If you can’t get out, or if the weather is bad, organize an indoor exercise routine for yourself.

An easy exercise & stretch plan
Head and neck circles
Stand up straight. Without moving your shoulders, slowly move your head and neck in a wide circle. Do this half a dozen times.

Arm swings
Stand up straight with legs apart and both arms stretched straight out in front of you, at chest level. Without moving your hips, swing your arms (parallel to the floor) as far to the left as you can – and then to the right. Do this 20 times.

Shoulder circles
Stand up straight with legs apart and arms at your sides. Without moving the rest of your body, circle your left arm backwards. Repeat this with your right arm. Do this half a dozen times.

Forward stretches
Stand up straight. Place hands palms down on the front of your thighs. Keeping your legs straight, lean forwards and slowly slide your hands down your legs, as close to your ankles as possible without straining. Then move them back up your legs and finish by holding your arms straight up above your head. Repeat this half a dozen times.

Side stretches
Stand up straight, with legs apart and arms at your sides. Without moving your legs, slowly bend sideways to the left, allowing your left hand to slide down the side of your leg, as far as possible without straining. Slowly return to the start position and repeat on right hand side. Do this half a dozen times per side.

Leg swings
Stand up straight with your weight on your right leg. Place your right hand on a chair or table, for support. Swing your left leg forwards and backwards, in a pendulum motion. Do this 20 times, then repeat the exercise with your right leg.

Thigh stretches
Sit on the floor with your legs stretched straight out in front of you. Place your hands on the top of your thighs and slide them down your legs as far as possible without straining. Return to the start position and repeat 10 times. Keep the whole exercise as slow and as relaxed as possible.

Leg raising
Lie on your stomach with your legs straight and your arms by your sides. Slowly lift your left leg off the floor, as high as possible without straining. Do it slowly – do not jerk your leg upwards. Then slowly lower your leg. Repeat the exercise with your right leg. Do this half a dozen times, per leg.

Running on the spot
Stand up straight with arms relaxed. Run on the spot for 2 minutes. As you do so, try to keep the whole of your upper body as relaxed as possible. Allow your arms to bounce freely at your sides.

Dance to music
As an alternative to running on the spot, put on your favorite CD and get moving! But avoid jerky movements. Try to move easily without straining your muscles.

Warning!
Never overdo exercise!

Exercise shouldn’t be a temporary fad. It should be something you do for life.

The secret is: A little and often!

Use your common sense and avoid trying to do too much, too soon.
