Restrictive dieting harms your health in seven major ways
During a 16-year follow-up period that ended in 2008, roughly 15,000 men and 10,000 women died. A total of 42 percent of men and nearly 57 percent of women in the study reported intentionally losing and then regaining at least 10 pounds one or more times in their life. Among women whose weight yo-yoed the most — 20 times or more — 16 percent died over the study, compared to 15 percent of those who said their weight never cycled due to dieting. For men, the corresponding numbers were 29 percent and 26 percent.

Dieting and investing: Simple, but not easy
Weight gain In addition to the threats of muscle loss and rebound overeating, the body has a third mechanism to maintain weight during a diet: slowing your metabolic rate. It does this by lowering levels of the thyroid hormone T3, which regulates metabolism. Frequent dieting only worsens the effect, making sustainable weight loss a distant possibility. Fat deficiency While pure garcinia cambogia low-fat dieting has been in fashion for decades, healthy fats from foods like meat, fish, eggs, avocados, and nuts and seeds are absolutely necessary for health. Fat cushions organs, coats every cell in the body, and is needed for brain function, production of hormones and absorption of vitamins A, D, E and K.

The Fat on Dieting in the New Year
“The problem,” says Burgard, “is people just believe dieting is good, like a religion, and you are the atheist in the room when you question it. There is so much more at stake when people try to lose weight than weight.” It’s all quite scary, especially with more than one-third of America’s kids now being either overweight or obese (triple the rate of thirty years ago). Pediatrician Dr. Robert Pretlow, founder of an interactive website for overweight teens and preteens, identifies “comfort eating,” “stress eating” and “boredom eating” as the major culprits for our rising childhood obesity rates. These are the very same triggers for restricting food and for binge-purge cycles. With the pressures on young people rising, there’s little reason to think that all forms of turning to emotional eating or controlling food will diminish.

In a new article from New York magazine’s “The Cut,” Rebecca Harrington chronicles her 10-day experience doing Beyonce’s dieting regimens. Beyonce Duets with Blind Fan in Australia Harrington lost a whopping 10 pounds in 10 days, starting with “the master cleanse,” a liquid-only diet made up of drinking lemonade made of cayenne pepper, lemons and grade B maple syrup nine times a day. “Beyonce resuscitated that diet to lose 20 pounds for Dreamgirls,” Harrington, who followed the strict diet regimen drinking the concoction nine times a day, told ABC News. Day four of the diet is “the cheat day.” “Beyonce has a cheat day every week where she eats a lot of different things,” said Harrington.

Beyonce’s Bootylicious Dieting Secrets Revealed
Bull markets lead to emotions such as greed and envy taking over from our rational self — which can result in taking more risk than we should. Bear markets lead to emotions such as fear and panic taking over from our rational self — which can result in what I call “portfolio suicide.” Merriman put it this way: “You can think of investing as a struggle between the emotions that drive us — hope, fear and greed being three prominent examples — and the iron laws of mathematics and probability.” He also noted another interesting analogy between dieting and investing. When it comes to losing weight, there are the multibillion dollar food and restaurant industries whose best interests are counter to your objectives. Similarly, the interests of Wall Street and most of the financial media run counter to the interests of investors. They need you to pay high fees and stay “tuned in” to what is nothing more than noise.
