Weight Loss for Women

Most women regardless of their actual weight or size want to lose weight at some point in their lives. Some of us have pursued that goal for years, and years, with little or no success at all. We might have lost some weight with a diet, exercise program or supplement, and then put it all back on and then some more. And from then on we embark on this rollercoaster; trying different diets, foods, exercise programs, and even some diet pills!; some work and some don’t, but nevertheless, we end up dedicating considerable time, effort, and even money in this pursuit. Eventually we come to the point where, the more we try the more difficult it gets. Sometimes, even when we have let go of our obsessions with body and weight and we are more focused on our health, we still struggle to trim off excess fat in our body.

In this article I want to explore some of the possible causes/reasons why weight/fat loss seems to be quite challenging for a lot of women. I also suggest some simple specific actions that have effectively helped me in losing excess fat without restrictions, radical diets or intense exercise routines.

This article is not intended to provide medical advice, please always consult with a qualified professional for any concerns with your health and nutritional program. The information and suggestions in this article are based on my formal studies in Nutritional Science, several literature reviews on the topic, experiences shared with other women, and my personal journey with overcoming an Eating disorder, obsessive dieting and exercising, as well as digestive and hormonal issues.

• The reason WHY

Sometimes our main obstacle for weight loss is the perception that we have of ourselves in the world, our beliefs about beauty, the influence of the media, and ultimately the reasons why we want to lose weight can determine our success or our failure in achieving a healthy weight. Some common hidden reasons for women to want to lose weight are: being more attractive, fitting in, filling emotional gaps, gaining acceptance, confidence, etc. Let me explain, I had low self-esteem for several years and my perception was that if only I was skinny I would then be more confident and socially accepted. However, even when I had lost considerable amount of weight I still felt not good enough, I still didn’t find my place in the world, and I still had low self- esteem. I did gain some self-confidence but it wasn’t real and long lasting, because it was dependent on my perception of being “skinny”, it was sort of borrowed confidence because when I put the weight on again, that confidence went out the door, leaving me right where I started.

On the other hand, when I made health my priority, and committed to healing first and foremost, I obtained much better results; I was naturally more loyal to my goal. I embarked on a journey of discovery of my own body, emotions, driving forces, etc. I found what I was really in search of, and realized that losing weight was not going to give me what I needed. I knew that some other areas had to be fixed first, and that then, weight loss would come. It is OK to want to lose weight when the reasons are genuine like; to have better health, live longer, have more quality of life, etc., understanding that when we are healthy, weight loss happens more easily. “What heals your body slims your body”.

When we get clear on the reasons why, weight-loss becomes a more nourishing, and fulfilling experience. When you know your reason why, you will have a better starting point for the next steps.

• Good digestion = Good detoxification = Better chances for fat loss

One way to assess how good your health is, is by looking at how good your digestion is.

Good digestive function is a crucial aspect in making sure that our body is processing nutrients, absorbing what it needs, and excreting normally and efficiently everything that does not serve us well. If you have any sort of digestive issue, however small it is, it is important to work on restoring normal digestive function first. This should be a priority, and before worrying about counting calories, fats and carbohydrates, a diet must be developed around restoring normal digestive function. Sometimes even our exercise routine has to be adjusted to accommodate energy levels from food intake when our digestion is compromised, because the body might not be getting all the nutrition needed to support the metabolism of exercise.

Stress also affects our digestion in many ways, so it has to be considered when we try to fix our digestion, sometimes it is not the food we eat, but how, and when we eat.

If you are one of those lucky ones with an iron stomach and immaculate digestion, you have one less thing to worry about, and can start looking at the next steps.

• Restrictive eating and Stress

Stress —–> increased cortisol + increased insulin +hormonal imbalance = more fat storage

Restrictive, low calorie diets and exercise in excess are stressors for the body. We have stress coming at us in every which way nowadays, and on top of that we add more stress to our bodies with restrictive eating and exercising too much. Simply put, when we are stressed out, the last thing the body wants to do is to burn fat, because the body, especially in women needs to feel safe, and if it detects any signs of starvation or danger, it will go into fat saving mode, and if the restriction is severe it can even lower, and shut down some functions in the body. Science has demonstrated that the human body is very efficient at storing fat, this is how the body was design, and it is important to understand that, so that instead of fighting the nature of the body, we embrace it and work with it, and around it.

Stress is a biggie, and you have probably heard this everywhere, so in this article I just want to mention a few things to watch for, that add significant amount of stress, and impede weight loss.

Stress sabotages our weight loss efforts through a variety of mechanisms in the body, and that it just the way the body was designed to work.

Some common behaviors in women that signal starvation, and consequently stress are: constant dieting, counting calories, fasting, under-eating, going to bed hungry, over-training, losing too much weight fast, etc. Men usually can afford a lot more abuse to their bodies, but women can’t because we were designed to bear and carry children. Whether you get pregnant or not, every month the female body prepares to bear a child, and we put ourselves at serious risk when starving ourselves. Our fertility, mental health, libido, skin, bone health, hormones, thyroid, and sleep all suffer consequences. In addition we may also lose the ability to burn fat.

The longer we starve ourselves with diets and over training the more potential for damage to our body, and the less chances for sustainable fat loss.

Stress also causes a decrease in sex hormone production which will impair muscle growth, cause excess fat to deposit in certain areas, mood disorders, irregular and painful menstrual periods, etc.

If the body is deprived of certain nutrients it has to choose between switching off certain processes temporarily or leeching what’s needed from somewhere else in the body. This would mean possible catabolism/ breakdown when you are already in a catabolic state from dieting and training. This puts a lot of stress on the body by asking it to provide further breakdown in another area to sustain itself, which is just more stress added to the system. This can manifest in muscle loss, fatigue, weakness, hair loss, thinning hair, lowered thyroid function, etc.

Other sources of stress:

• Illness, pain, aches

Health issues require more energy and specific nutrients to allow for healing. When we have a specific condition, especially chronic conditions such as colitis, the body spends a lot of energy, and resources trying to heal. Pain, and illness are stressors for the body, they increase cortisol which signals the body to store fat, especially when we push the body beyond its current capacity to cope. We must focus on providing the body with appropriate care before focusing on losing weight, otherwise we will promote further breakdown, and overcompensation in the body.

• Doing too much, Over-training, Lack of sleep/rest

I am not sure when it became more socially acceptable for women to be as busy as possible, accomplish as much or more than men in business, politics, sports etc., joggle a full time job, plus take care of kids and sustain a household, train like an athlete, look like a fitness model, and lift heavy weights to demonstrate strength. Don’t get me wrong, I am the first one to believe in the strength and intelligence of women. It is for a reason that we are the ones who can bear a child! But my question is, can our female biology and physiology support all of those demands that I mentioned above?

I think the answer relies on the health status of the majority of women with highly demanding jobs, performance athletes, and the women who work full time jobs, or more than one job, who study and work, plus run kids around, sleep little hours, and much more that most women do on a daily basis these days.

What I hear recently from the online women health community is that a lot of women are suffering detrimental effects of demanding lifestyles, excessive exercise, dieting, and stress caused by doing more than the body can handle, and not having enough rest!. This effects show in the increased incidence of amenorrhea (loss of your menstrual cycle), infertility, metabolic damage, hormonal imbalances, low energy, PMS, Painful periods, low thyroid function, digestive problems, stubborn weight gain, and more.

That said, I am sure that some women (even though the minority) might be more resilient to stress than others, and that there is a different level of activity that is supportive of good health for each of us. The point is to be honest with ourselves and find our threshold. How much can you honestly handle while maintaining optimal health? because yes! We are meant to feel good, and function well. We can’t and should not drag ourselves around on caffeine stimulation.

Most women need to sleep at least 7-8 hours every day to repair and detoxify. Some of us need more than that, I am one of them. Don’t give up your sleep! Sleep should be a priority over exercise, and sometimes more than eating.

When it comes to over-training, it means different things for each of us, depending on our level of health, and even our genetics. I will share with you that the stage where I am at in my healing journey; more than 30 minutes of light exercise a day is over-training!, and I do my body more harm than good if I push harder than that. One session of High intensity interval training can leave me exhausted for a whole week, and I can notice my stress level, and anxiety rising with that type of exercise. It took me a while to understand this, and it was hard to give up the gym, but I took a leap of faith, and in the end I felt better by cutting down.

National Women’s Health

Did you know there are centers and networks for National Women’s Health in Europe, in the US, in Australia and in some countries in Asia? In lots of countries, it is an important issue as women frequently take care of so many things, but forget to take care of themselves.

Services

It can be said that it is a dedication the nation has to provide women personalized care. Those that centers play a significant part in this respect are hospitals and other organizations such as nursing homes as well as health centers. They have doctors as well as nurses on their payroll and a number of community services.

The National Women’s Health Center is one such organization which has several services particularly for women. Included are maternity care, maternity outpatient services and even newborn services. Other services that are also provided here are fertility, gynecology and oncology too.

Reform Plans

Establishing universal access to health care which meets various women’s needs is very important. There are some reform plans being made in the US, and the National Women’s Health Network is contributing to it in a big way. It is effective in the direction of getting quality and affordable health care for every women.

There are also doctors and lawyers who are promoting women to raise their voices for the health care that they require, so that the case becomes powerful. Finally, women’s concerns can be addressed because it is looking at reforms on the local and state level as well.

Social Empowerment of Women

The indicators of social empowerment of women include the base of gender inequality, sex ratios, life expectancy rates and fertility rates which shows the general status of women in terms of literacy, economic growth, availability of health care and birth control facilities, educational status of women, age at marriage, literacy rates and participation of women outside the home. Gender inequality is a worldwide phenomenon and leaving aside some Nordic nations, gender inequality base reflects very poorly for almost all major countries in the world. Sex ratio is against women in Asia and even though life expectancy has gone up around the world including in Asia it has not improved the overall status of women in much of the world. Same is the case with fertility rates which have declined in some regions including Asia but the positive impact of this change on women around the world is not as much as that was desired. Glaring gender gap exists in terms of literacy rates though it is narrowing across Asia. The figures for female literacy rates are not at all encouraging in the developing world. Now let’s focus on various issues that are closely associated with the social empowerment of women.

Social empowerment of women: Ending violence against women

Violence against women is a real fact and we need to acknowledge the real tragedy behind this crime. It totally shatters the women from the core psychologically as well as physically. It is time that community development and feminist values are made an integral aspect of empowerment of women. Women need to be educated and made aware of their rights and they should be encouraged to stand united against the biased and discriminating social environment which directly and indirectly affects their psychological and physical self. Education and awareness would be a big step towards the fight against gender based violence. Only through education and awareness we can connect with the vast majority of women living in various parts of the world and prevent them from falling pray to the numerous forms of possible violence in their life. We have to accept the fact that women are constantly under the threat of violence from various sides. The oppressive structures of the society need to be changed and oppression of women need to be stopped but it won’t happen through some quick fix solutions. The change can be only possible through social empowerment of women at the grass root level with education and awareness.

Social empowerment of women: Issues related to social empowerment of women

When we talk of social empowerment of women then we are actually addressing various issues which might be applicable to different parts of the world for improving the overall status of women. Among them the prominent issues relate to education for women, health for women, nutrition for women, drinking water and sanitation for women and their family, housing and shelter for women and their family, environment and the connection with women, participation of women in the field of science and technology, care for women under difficult circumstances, fighting the violence against women and rights of the girl child.

Social empowerment of women: Education for women

We need to accept the fact that gender inequality and discrimination has been the norm of the society and in this regard it touches all aspects of the life of women. Education and training for women is one of the major goals of social empowerment of women which need to be universally made applicable to all parts of the world. This will definitely enhance the awareness in women which in turn will increase her confidence. A confident and well aware woman would be able to tackle inequality and discrimination in a far better way than an ill-equipped and ill-trained woman. But on the other hand we have to accept the fact that women and girls never had equal access to education as men and boys have. Illiteracy is the highest among the female of the population. Women are far behind in terms of having gainful occupation or vocation because of lack of skills and education. There is an enormous gender gap in secondary and higher education. Moreover religious and caste equations have made things worse in many parts of the world. The work has to start at the grass root levels. The educational systems need to be made more accessible to women at grass root levels and they need to be revamped to include gender sensitive educational system which prevents sex stereotyping and discrimination. Social organizations can play a major role in universalizing education at the basic ground level. This can be achieved through increasing the enrollment and retention rates of girl child in the primary schools and offering quality education and skills to them so that they can stand up on their feet and live a dignified life.

Social empowerment of women: Healthcare for women

Coming to the health of women we need to understand that women are facing very difficult times at all stages of their life cycle. It is sad to note that a section of our society is highly prejudiced against the girl child and in fact can be labelled as criminals of the highest order as they practice the heinous crime of female feticide. Then we have the problem of high infant mortality and maternal mortality and one of the major reasons for this being the early child marriages. Quality health care for women is not available in many parts of the world. Women’s right to informed choice regarding her reproductive rights is another area which needs attention. Talking of reproductive rights women even don’t have affordable choice of family planning methods. Education and awareness in this regard is nonexistent and absent. Women are vulnerable to sexually transmitted diseases and other endemic, infectious and communicable diseases. HIV/AIDS is another major problem. Women’s traditional knowledge of health care and nutrition, alternative systems of medicine are actually underutilised and not recognized. It is necessary to recognize these alternative systems and integrate them with the main stream health care systems to make it work in tandem. This shall help in providing reasonable and quality health care for women.

Social empowerment of women: Nutrition, drinking water, sanitation and housing

For women, from the stage of infancy and childhood to the stage of adolescent and reproductive phase the risk of malnutrition is the highest. There is a close link between the health of an adolescent girl who becomes a pregnant and lactating woman latter and the health of the infant child. Macro and micro nutrients are needed for these special conditions but they are not available to the vast majority of women. In house the women and girl child face great discrimination as regards to good nutritious food. This happens in the early growth period of a child as well as to a pregnant and lactating woman. Other major issues are drinking water and sanitation especially in rural areas and urban slums. Housing and shelter are also area of attention including adequate and safe accommodation for single women, heads of the households, working women, students, apprentices and trainees. These are very real issues of the very real world that we live in. Without addressing these basic needs we cannot think about any meaningful step towards social empowerment of women.

Social empowerment of women: Women and environment conservation

Social empowerment of women and environment is closely linked. Women can play a major role in conservation and restoration of the environment. Rural women use unconventional and nature friendly source of energy in the form of animal dung, crop waste and fuel wood. Using of solar energy, biogas, and smokeless stoves can really help the rural women as they can act as environmental friendly tools.

Social empowerment of women: Participation of women in development of science and technology

Women’s empowerment cannot be complete without their equitable participation in science and technology. Women have special role to play in the area of science and technology. They can bring a wave of creative and generative energy in the field of science and technology. Today their participation is restricted and limited to very less numbers because of widespread discrimination at the basic education levels and lack of opportunities for pursuing higher studies. Reducing drudgery with the help of science and technology is another major area of importance for freeing women from the never ending domestic chores and making her contribute to the mainstream of the society.

Social empowerment of women: Helping women in difficult times

Women in difficult circumstances need special attention. These include women in extreme poverty, destitute women, women in conflict situations, women affected by natural calamities, women in less developed regions, disabled widows, elderly women, single women in difficult circumstances, women heading households, women who are displaced from employment, migrant women who are victims of marital violence, deserted women and prostitutes. These women are in difficult circumstances which are not of their own making. They are the victims of the selfish streak of society. It is ironical to note that women become the primary pray for all the malice and sins of the society. It is time to reverse this phenomenon. Organizations especially the grass root level social organizations should come in large numbers to help these women who are at the receiving end for a sin which is not of their making.

Social empowerment of women: Fighting against violence and discrimination

Violence against women is heinous crime against humanity. Violence can be both physical and psychological and it happens at the domestic front as well as at other levels of the society. It is in fact openly practiced in many societies through various forms which include customs and traditions. Sexual harassment at work, dowry related violence and trafficking of women and girls are different types of violence against women. Discrimination against women starts when they are just children. Girl child discrimination is the most prevalent form of harassment seen from the early age of a child. Parental sex selection, female feticide, female infanticide, child marriage, child abuse including sexual and psychological abuse and child prostitution are the many kinds of violence and discrimination against the girl child that is seen within the home as well as the society. Special awareness and education programmes needs to be formulated and implemented at every level to fight the violence against women. Strict laws need to be formulated to fight the crime of violence against women. More than formulating the laws the priority should be to implement and enforce these laws so that we can root out violence against women. This is necessary for any meaningful social empowerment of women.

Women’s Health

The most important thing in life is happiness. Happiness comes from both physical and mental wellness. Therefore, it is said that health is the real wealth. When it comes to women health, maintaining a good health is very important, as they have to perform so many tasks in their daily life. There are a lot of women who have been suffering from various kinds of health diseases due to lack of proper vitamins and minerals in their body.

Vitamins are very much essential for the body, as they help in proper functioning of the body organs and thus, keep you in good health. Quality vitamins for women actually help in slowing the aging process, make strong the immune system, improve energy levels and support the female hormones. However, before going to take any vitamins, consulting with a medical professional that has better knowledge about it, would be great. As doctors or medical professionals have extensive knowledge about human body and the functioning of all the organs, therefore they can guide towards the right direction when it comes to women health care. A lot of clinical studies have proved that a woman’s body needs a lot of anti-aging natural substances for specific health benefits.

In order to remain in good health condition, a lot of women prefer to take high quality anti- aging daily supplements. It helps them to fulfill their dietary gaps that almost all women are having. Moreover, having fresh fruits and vegetables also helps in getting the much needed vitamins to the body. Apart from it, women need nutrients, for example amino acids, antioxidants etc. Nutrients are essential for supporting the mental health, while enzymes and other substances like resveratrol are essential for heart health, and lutein and zeaxanthin for eye health.

Though nutrients are equally important for both men and women, but certain nutrients are there that are required especially required for women health as they are important for balancing the female hormones. It is said that women in their 30s and above 30 years of age required extra care for maintaining a good health. Osteoporosis is a very significant condition in women that usually begins in the age of 30. Therefore, regular dietary calcium and magnesium supplements along with other necessary nutrients are recommended to the women of above 40 years of age.

How to Beat Swine Flu

A pregnant woman is more exposed to swine flu than the general population for her immune system is weakened, therefore more vulnerable. Like the seasonal influenza, swine flu could favor the occurrence of pulmonary complications in a future mother with a body already sensitized.

Some metabolisms are more susceptible to attacks of A H1N1. Everyone may be affected by the swine flu virus, but the most sensitive are the children, elderly and pregnant women.

Fever, one of the symptoms of influenza, can cause suffering, but no risk of malformations of the baby. If, however, fever continues contractions might occur, which increases the risk of premature pregnancy.
However, influenza A H1N1 should not scare you more than another cause. There are means of prevention and treatment, even if you are pregnant.

Influenza A H1N1, after birth

Placing in maternity should be as short as possible, and after birth you should meet with the doctor in a private office or a clinic, avoiding crowded hospitals.

If the mother was contaminated with the H1N1 virus is contagious, with the risk to transmit the disease to the new-born baby. A person affected by influenza A is contagious 24 to 48 hours before the first symptoms and between 4 and 5 days after their disappearance.

Regarding breastfeeding is not recommended to stop in case of flu. Breast milk is not contaminated, but rather is recognized for the transmission of antibodies from mother to child and will protect the newborn from possible infection. If you can not breastfeed directly, extract your milk to feed your baby with a bottle. Wash your hands and nipples before each feeding or extraction and wear a protective mask. Milking milk will be placed in a sterilized bottle.

Symptoms of influenza A H1N1 resembles very much the classic flu: fever, cough, headache, trouble breathing, etc.. If you suffer from any of these symptoms is appropriate to ask for medical advice.

Treatment for Pregnant Women

Health of a pregnant women should be monitored carefully. In the case of the flu, the doctor is the one that will recommend appropriate treatment. In general, it may consist of:

* Fever drop;
* Fluids;
* Rest;
* Treatment with antivirals but only if your doctor decides that.

Measures to prevent illness

The influenza virus is transmitted by air, mostly through saliva drops or nasal secretions (coughing, sneezing, runny nose ). To limit the risk of transmission, whatever the time of pregnancy, is recommended to respect certain rules of hygiene:

* Wash your hands regularly with soap and water
* Avoid direct contact with any person:hugs, hand shake, etc.
* Keep a minimum distance of 2 m from a person with symptoms of respiratory diseases;
* Do not borrow a towel from the bathroom, toothbrush, soap or other item of personal hygiene to any family member (husband, child, etc.);
* Clean surfaces regularly contact: handles, switches, cover the toilet etc.
* Avoid going to places where there is risk of contamination: hospitals, schools, transportation, public gatherings etc.

Natural Medicine Gives Hope for Women

In today’s world, many women know what PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) is, and this is due to the increasing prevalence of this condition around the world. While PCOS carry such a name due to the fact that there are many small cysts found in ovaries of women with this condition, there are also certain other symptoms and signs that might disturb their healthy life; infertility, symptoms of hormonal imbalance and irregular menstruation are few of them. These multiple small cysts disturb the hormonal cycle, which results in a serious hormonal imbalance. Also, with the time, this disease increases the risk of diabetes and heart diseases. This is why PCOS is a serious matter when it comes to women health.

Unfortunately, allopathic medicine, as well as western medicine, does not have a cure for PCOS other than the 500mg Metformin pill which is prescribed for every woman with this condition. We see that Metformin is a medication that is prescribed for two conditions; during Diabetes Mellitus type 2 and during PCOS. It is quite obvious that this medication is not very specific in treating or terminating this condition, which changes a woman starting from her appearance to her daily lifestyle.

While for many, the most effective treatment for PCOS is defined as the eating certain healthy foods, controlling the weight and doing regular exercises, in Ayurvedic medicine, we have a better definition. Actually, we have a better answer for this condition and it is a real cure that completely heals PCOS.

These medications are not artificial or synthetic. They are a complex of extracts from natural herbs, fruits, and seeds. There are several Ayurvedic herbal supplements to treat PCOS and they are;

1. Polycys

2. Cystomin DS

3. Femdays

4. Myo-inositol

5. Bacopa Medicated Ghee

6. Spirulina

7. Moringa Oleifera

Each supplement contains a blend of several herbal extracts or a single, very powerful herbal extract that has multifunctional abilities. These natural capsules participate in balancing the hormonal levels of women who suffer from PCOS. They improve and normalize the levels of LH/FSH ratio and maintain the menstrual cycle. At the same time, they also participate in maintaining other hormones of the body that are indirectly influenced by the female hormones at some level. These supplements can prevent irregular menstruation, heavy bleeding, and severe pain during menstruation while promoting the fertility. Acne, unwanted hair growth, and oily skin, which are due to increased levels of testosterone during PCOS, can also be effectively reduced with the use of this supplement.

Although there are many changes in the body to worry about during this condition, an increment of functional body stress and inflammation can also be noted. This is a result of broken balance between female and male hormones. But the herbal extracts in these Ayurvedic supplements play their natural wonders by increasing the level of female sex hormones and decreasing the levels of male sex hormones.

Cauliflower for Ultimate Health and Wellness

Achieving great health and wellness is as easy as eating your vegetables. Therefore it would be foolish not to start eating more broccoli, according to research.
Research has found that certain vegetables like kale, cauliflower, broccoli, brussel sprouts contain sulforaphane, which is a very potent cancer-fighting chemical. Broccoli is a rich source of glucosinolates which break down into the substance called sulforophane. Sulphoraphane appears to have a strong anti-cancer effect by stimulating our natural defenses. Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine researchers recognized sulphoraphane as a compound found in broccoli sprouts. The researchers also found that it also kills the bacterium Helicobacter pylori, that is thought to be responsible for many cases of stomach cancer and ulcers.

-Select a head of broccoli, or cauliflower that is a tight green or white head, with firm stalks. -Store the broccoli, and cauliflower in an open container, not sealed. -When preparing florets to be served raw place in cold water for 10 minuets, this will make them crisp. -Eating plain broccoli can be very boring so be creative with your condiments. –Steam broccoli and add toasted pine nuts or seeds.
