More about CFDDSSL
  • Cardio training: Get involved in an activity that raises your heart rate to a level where you're working, but can still talk.  Try 30 minutes of moderate intensityexercise 5 days a week, or vigorous cardio 20 minutes a day, 3 days a week in the form of cycling, walking, running, jogging etc. Think about how your body feels after a workout. Your muscles are warm and flexible, the blood is pumping through your body, providing oxygen and energy. You feel energized, confident, proud of yourself and ready to take on the world. 

  • Launching The ultimate Drug to fight obesityFlexibility Training: Ahh . . .stretching is so good for the muscles and the joints in the form of yoga, Pilates etc. This kind of training helps  increase your range of motion, decrease muscular tension, correct muscle imbalances, relieve joint stress, and help to maintain the normal length of your muscles with aging. People who don't stay flexible as they get older can become very stiff and can have difficulty getting around. Just remember - Don't bounce when you stretch. Hold the stretch for at least 30 seconds.

  • Diet Modification: What ever Food you eat it produces hormonal effects in the body. Some hormones say 'store that fat'; others say 'release sugar'; others say 'build muscle.' Study after study shows that diets based on the same amount of calories, but different proportions of fat, protein and carbohydrates, result in different amounts of weight loss. Adopting certain dietary changes like eating smaller portions, adding more nutrient-rich fruits and vegetables in meals, eating breakfast, shifting focus from junk food like cookies, candy, potato chips and soda, to more healthy food like whole wheat bread, grilled chicken, broccoli, and orange juice is no doubt going to help you fight obesity. You can begin making a small change to your daily calories intake so that your TCI (total calorie intake) ends up being below your daily calories out.

  • Disease Management: facing health issues like diabetes, asthma, arthritis, fibromyalgia, heart disease, high blood pressure, pregnancy, menopause, cancer effectively with, medication, diet and exercise is going to help manage the larger problem of obesity. People see the doctor only once in a while. They live with their chronic illnesses every day. By trial and error, they figure out how to manage that disease in a way that allows them to continue to work, play and participate in life. With no more than sketchy knowledge of disease and how it affects the body, they take on the daunting task of integrating it into their lives. Timely medical intervention can help raise health status. 

  • Stress Management: A buildup of stress can cause both physical, mental, and emotional problems. Body functions slow down, such as our digestive and immune systems when we are in fight-or flight response mode. Weight gain is often associated with emotional eating and the too-busy-to-exercise lifestyles of people under chronic stress. Under stress, the body excretes corticotrophin-releasing hormone and adrenalin. This reaction stimulates the release of cortisol from the adrenal cortex. In turn, cortisol, a glucocorticoid, stimulates glucose release into the bloodstream, which, during periods of chronic stress, creates an excessive release of insulin. Insulin, which is part of the endocrine system, is a fat-storage hormone that overrides the stress signal from adrenalin to burn fat. The excess release of insulin gives the body the message to store fat in the abdomen. Dealing with stress can be as simple as taking a few minutes a day to relax, scheduling a massage as often as you can or cutting down on work hours and increasing play time.

  • Strength Training: Weight training is crucial to weight loss and control, because individuals who have more muscle mass have a higher metabolic rate(15 %). Building muscle helps protect your joints from injury. It also contributes to better balance, which can help you maintain independence as you age.  From age 30 to age 70 we can lose more than 25% of the type 2 muscle fibers in our bodies (type 2 fibers are our strength fibers). Resistance exercise can slow down or even reverse the aging process by building muscle mass and strength. You can do many exercises with little or no equipment. Try push-ups, pull-ups, abdominal crunches and leg squats.

  • Launching The ultimate Drug to fight obesityLifestyle Modification:  Have you ever noticed how a depressed mood and a steady stream of negative outbursts can sometimes cause you to indulge in overeating? Positive thinking, on the other hand, can help you focus on things that are on your list of immediate priority. When you are in a positive frame of mind, you do not really mind saying a firm 'no' to any temptations. Weight loss pills like Xenical can help a lot in trimming down your waistline, but can you expect them to produce miracles for you? The answer is quite obvious you cannot. Obesity treatment promises to be a success when you think healthy, eat healthy and most importantly, get involved in a certain amount of physical activities on a regular basis. By learning how to reverse our thought methods from negative to positive, we can  see an improvement on physical weight loss. Cognitive-behavioral therapy, or CBT, is a type of therapy that can help you replace negative thoughts with positive ones.


Note: Weight-loss drugs may sound like a dieter's dream. But they aren't a good choice for everyone who's overweight. In fact, many doctors reserve them for people with weight-related health problems. You and your doctor need to carefully evaluate the potential benefits of taking a drug and weigh them against the possible long-term risks.
