Weight loss is being talked about everywhere — and we mean everywhere.
On Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, in magazines, on TV and by our friends, our co-workers, and even our family.
But is all of this chatter about weight loss today helping us lose more weight or understand weight loss better?
Not by a long shot.
Almased, a unique low-glycemic high-protein (LGHP) diet formula, can give the body a metabolic weight-loss advantage compared to a regular diet, but more about Almased and how to order it later…
It used to be that if you wanted half-baked or questionable information, all you had to do was open a supermarket tabloid or talk to your neighbor.
Over the last 20 years, however, you don’t have to work at getting inundated with all kinds of information — all you have to do is speak to Siri or Alexa or type in almost anything into Google.
Presto! We are flooded with online information: a lot crazy, much of it wrong, some questionable, and some accurate.
And weight loss is one area where are a lot of myths and misinformation floating around, some of it dangerous to our health.
So, we’ve assembled some of the biggest myths out there about weight loss and took them on with facts!
There are almost as many different weight loss diets as there are people. Yet nearly three-quarters of American men and more than 60% of women remain overweight. 30 million people in America have diabetes.
There is no shortage of people pursuing a diet plan to lose weight and live a healthier life. Which plan is best?
For any diet to be useful, long-lasting lifestyle changes are a must. Once a diet is over, you don’t want to return to old habits that caused overweight.
We’ve summed up the following weight-loss diets. As you read through, think realistically and aim for your best possible health. Consider – which is the plan you can stick with long term?
Did you know the first shake recipe was “born” in 1922 at a Chicago soda fountain when Ivar “Pop” Coulson added ice cream to their malted milk drink?
With the advent of the electric blender that same year, it probably wasn’t long before chocolate and strawberry were added to the list.
Shake recipes began to grow up, too, through the 1950s era of hula hoops, poodle skirts and the first-ever high-protein muscle drinks for body-builders, up through the modern age of high-protein diet shakes.
You might have heard The Who’s famous rock anthem, “My Generation.” While the song may have initially helped define one generation, it has something to say to everyone.
Health shakes have evolved over the years, too, but, if formulated in the right ways, they can offer something of value to people of all ages!
In fact, there was another big hit over 30 years ago in Germany when the Trouillé family forever joined the words weight-loss and shake into one name called “Almased."
And that changed things forever.
You might find a gazillion reasons to postpone a healthy weight loss diet, but these 8 reasons to lose weight right now just might keep you from being stuck in a holding pattern.
1. You’ll get to buy the clothes you’ve always wanted to wear. You really, really want to look good wearing anything. Or nothing.
It’s a lot of fun shopping for new clothes without stressing over the 3-way mirrors in a dressing room. And every time you drop down a dress size, you'll feel like celebrating.
2. You will sleep much better. A good night’s sleep is just one positive outcome of losing weight.
Good quality sleep helps you live in sync with natural “body clock” rhythms, regulate metabolism, blood sugar levels, hormone production, and more. You can also focus more easily, feel better, and enjoy a more positive outlook.
3. Feel the relief of reduced pain and discomfort. Weight loss is considered a first-line approach to reduce the risk of pain associated with weight gain such as foot pain, joint pain, and osteoarthritis for all overweight patients.
There is also a real link between obesity and rheumatoid arthritis since inflammation is found in adipose (fat) tissue.
4. Your immune system will love you for it. You may experience fewer colds and enjoy an overall healthier you.
Toxic chemicals become stored in fat tissue. A wider waistline (including our body mass index, or BMI, and excess body fat are associated with an increased risk of infections.
According to Science Daily, “Through diet alone, we can favorably impact the detoxification process, decrease oxidative stress levels, and enhance weight loss.”
5. Breathe easier and reduce sleep disturbances. Excess weight is usually in the midsection of the body, which can reduce lung volume and keep you from breathing well.
Losing just 10 pounds can make a huge difference in breathing issues and outcomes.
6. Worry about something other than health problems. It’s often lurking in the back of your mind: anxiety about heart disease, stroke, hypertension, type 2 diabetes and not being able to bounce that fuzzy yellow ball over that net.
No one wants a life of limitations.
But in most cases, an unhealthy diet is the cause of overweight, which is a prime factor in the risk of those diet-related diseases. The food you eat can be easily managed, and there are so many other things to worry about instead!
7. It’s your turn to glow! Radiant skin and healthy weight come from eating healthy foods, including fruits and veggies galore – prime fare in a low-glycemic, high-protein (LGHP) diet.
Poor nutrition and excess weight are reflected in the color and elasticity of the skin.
Make right now your time to be confident and beautiful inside and out.
8. Losing weight has never been easier! The Almased Weight Loss Phenomenon™ is the low-glycemic high-protein (LGHP) meal replacement and food supplement. It boosts metabolism, helps us burn fat and supports healthy blood sugar levels.
With 27 grams of quality protein, Almased helps keep you full for 4–6 hours. You don’t have to go hungry!
Can you imagine a more fun way to lose weight than drinking your favorite Almased shake?
Wouldn’t you just know it? It IS harder for women to lose weight! It may be due to biology, behavior, or both, but men gain the upper hand in weight loss.
Men tend to have more muscle, which burns more calories than fat. They tend to have a higher metabolism, too.
On top of that, women often experience more food-related conflict than men do, and the pressure to be thin starts in very young girls.
The recommended BMI for both men and women ranges from 18.5 to 25, according to the World Health Organization. Being weight-wise is all about finding the right weight in reference to your height.
The BMI of the average adult female in the U.S. is 29.6, which means the average woman is technically in the “overweight” range.
It’s a funny question, but it is a point. You can’t add inches upward, so the only corrective measure is to shrink those inches inward. The truth is in the BMI is a standard indicator of well-being, so it's worth being aware of.
Calculate your BMI here to find your ideal weight loss goal, then check out the Almased advantage.
Note that BMI is not always a reliable indicator of excess weight. If you have considerable muscle mass, the BMI may indicate that you are overweight or obese, even though you appear thin. It is helpful to follow-up with other measurements such as measuring fat percentage in addition to BMI to gather a well-rounded picture concerning your weight.
The Almased Figure Plan was created to outwit slow metabolism in 4 easy-to-do stages.
From fast-tracking fat loss to preserving your successful goal weight, it’s a satisfying game plan to drink Almased shakes in place of 1, 2, or 3 meals daily. Or, use Almased as an occasional snack when needed.
Trustpilot reviewer Barbylynn wrote about her personal experience using Almased shakes and how she maintains her weight loss over time.
“Almased is amazing! I have energy and feel so healthy when I start my day and end my day with Almased. After following the 14-day plan and then one meal and two meal plans with shakes, I am able to maintain my weight a year and a half later. It is simple and does not require a lot of complicated planning. Almased... thank you!” - Barbylynn
Men should take note that, with too much body fat, testosterone levels are likely to take a nose-dive.
Side effects are many, including bone loss, hair loss, reduced muscle mass and energy and erectile dysfunction.
One study found obese men to be 8 times as likely to have low levels of testosterone than are healthy-weight men.
Too much fat mass is more than uncomfortable. Obesity seems to be the most effective predictor of low testosterone in men – out of many possible risk factors.
With this in mind, researchers from the University of Freiburg studied the metabolic effects of resistance training in middle-aged, moderately overweight males.
Better improvement was shown in body composition and metabolic function with the LGHP Almased shake and eating an LGHP diet.
