Stop taking the pills, you don't know what is in them and they are not good for you. You will lose weight only if you are also eating healthy. If you continue to eat junk food and run you will not lose weight. Eating healthy is a big part of losing weight. Make sure you eat breakfast with protein and protein with every meal along with fresh fruits and vegetables.

Truman Originally Answered: How does drinking plenty of water help your body stay warm in cold weather?
Yes, water is necessary for the body to regulate temperature. Here's a good thumbnail description of HOW this process works: "The human body regulates temperature by keeping a tight balance between heat gain and heat loss. Your temperature regulation system is more analogous to the operation of a home furnace, as opposed to the function of an air conditioner. Humans regulate heat generation and preservation to maintain internal body temperature or core temperature. Normal core temperature at rest varies between 36.5 and 37.5 °Celsius (°C), which is 97.7 to 99.5 °Fahrenheit (°F). Core temperature is regulated by the hypothalamus (in the brain), which is often called the body’s thermostat. The hypothalamus responds to various temperature receptors located throughout the body and makes physiological adjustments to maintain a constant core temperature. For example, on a hot day, temperature receptors located in the skin send signals to the hypothalamus to cool the body by increasing the sweat rate. During all types of exercise the body’s ability to thermoregulate is challenged. Heat is produced as a bi-product of metabolism (metabolism is defined as all of the reactions that occur in the human body). However, the human body is only 25% efficient, therefore you lose approximately 75% of energy as heat. During exercise, heat is produced mainly from working muscle contractions and core temperature can go above 40 °C (104 °F). " Please drink at least eight glasses of water daily--more if you live in a hot or dry climate. However, don't forget your daily water when it's cold too. It'll help keep your fingers and toes warm on freezing days.

I lost 23 pounds by walking 3-5 times a week for 1/2 hour, drinking water all day with the exception of one soda per day. My son is 3 and it really helped getting that baby weight off.

Yes to both. It will help you lose weight and tighten up the tummy and thigh area. NOTE 1 hour a day will also put a tremendous toll on your knees. 1/2 hour day will lose that weight too. Go easy on your body. I used to run 20 miles a week and it was too much for my knees. I now have arthritis and am confined to Tae Boing it for exercise....works BUT I loved running.

I've tried many diets and couldn't make anything work. Since having my first child, I've been carrying around an extra 30 pounds. This diet just made sense and showed me that everything I was doing before was wrong and a waste of my time. The plan was so refreshing and so simple to follow. I did everything plan said and lost 23 pounds in the first three weeks. I'm now starting the diet again to lose 7 more pounds. This plan has changed my life. Get started today!

Staying hydrated is a key to staying healthy. If you have excess sugars, then the kidneys can flush the excessive amounts of sugars along with other toxins from the body. The key is to start making effective diet changes. You might want to read both of these books, they explain a lot about how the body works, and simple diet changes that will help you out. Dr. Barnard's program for reversing diabetes. The PH Miracle for Diabetes. By Dr. Young Both say that diet change allows controlled group patients to reduce medication by 50% and lose weight too.
