I love internet marketing mainly because it is a convenient way of making money from your home. I mentioned some other reasons why I love internet marketing.
Just read that article and come back here. However making money on internet may not be all that difficult and at the same time it may not be all that easy too.
What we have to do is to take action, be persistent, avoid distractions, be consistent and follow a tested business model. There are many business models we can follow in order to make money on internet.
I came across 1 such model which seems pretty interesting and impressive. Its named conduit method . The advantage with this method is that it seems to be a fairly simple method to implement for beginners and they can earn a lot of money from that.
Another tried and tested plan presented by the same author of the above method is discussed here - Lazy SuperAffiliate Tactics
I definitely feel that both the above methods are worth a serious try - something I intend to do soon.

In a hurry to lose weight? Many people resort to diet pills or starvation diets for losing weight quickly. But there are 2 sad things with that.
Firstly both these methods can be absolutely ineffective for weight loss. Secondly, both can cause health problems.
Why is that so? Read the harmful effects of diet pills here - Bad Effects of Diet Pills
Regarding starvation diets, then they can cause decrease in metabolism rate which is likely to stop further weight loss.
There is another drawback - both of the above are temporary weight loss solutions. Just think about it - once you stop dieting or stop taking diet pills what will happen?
If you go back to your previous eating ways, won't you gain back that weight again? That is assuming you lose the weight in the first place (which is again doubtful).
What's the solution to lose weight and stay slim then? One such solution happens to be - Calorie Shifting Fat Loss
Brief customer reviews of this program are available at: Customer Reviews for Fat Loss 4 Idiots
There might be other effective weight loss methods too. This goes on to show that we need not resort to desperate or unhealthy methods as there are healthy ways of losing weight naturally and fast!

Do you want tips to lose belly fat fast and easily? Here are some good things to begin with for losing the dreaded belly fat as well as weight loss.
1)Exercise early in the morning: Exercising early in the morning can be good for losing belly fat. Jog or do brisk walking for 30 minutes to 1 hour everyday before breakfast.
If you cannot do this everyday, atleast try to do it on most days of the week. However, note that exercising alone may not be completely effective in helping you lose belly fat.
2. Avoid drinking alcohol: Alcohol contains high amount of calories. There are 7 calories per gram of alcohol.
Another reason to stay far away from alcohol is that it has a huge impact on the body sugar levels. Studies also suggest that alcohol consumption is likely to increase your appetite leading to overeating and thus affecting your efforts to lose belly fat fast.
3)Avoid junk food: Junk food has become the bane of modern society. We have got so used to it so much that it is difficult to give it up.
But realize that eating too much junk food can be a primary cause for developing lot of belly fat. Eating junk food can raise your appetite levels making you eat more and also eat unhealthy fattening foods resulting in gaining more fat around your stomach.
4)Drink lot of water: Guess what happens whenever you drink lot of water? If you haven't guessed it, here's the answer - you will feel the need to frequently rush to the washroom.
How does this help you to lose belly fat? Actually it is your body's way of releasing water that it has been retaining for long. You may be surprised to know that the more water you drink, the less of it is retained by the body.
So you can lose some water weight and also lose belly fat by drinking more water. Along with this water, unwanted pounds are also shed off by the body.
5)Reducing stress: Just before you think that I have gone nuts, let me explain how stress can come in the way of losing belly fat fast.
Actually, high levels of stress can cause your body to produce a hormone called as 'cortisol'. This cortisol is released in your body during periods of stress and it has been linked to weight gain.
Research seems to point out that stress can hinder with your body's capacity to reduce belly fat. By incorporating stress relieving activities in your schedule and learning how to relax, you can do a world of good to your efforts to lose the belly fat.
So the new mantra is ... relax, avoid tension and stand a much better chance to lose belly fat.
6)Eat balanced diet: A balanced diet is so important when you are trying to lose belly fat. Proper dieting can be one of the fastest way to lose a lot of weight quickly and permanently. It can be much more effective than exercise too!
Avoid unhealthy foods and those foods that have high levles of sugar or caffeine. Try going for foods which are rich in nutrients, vitamins, minerals and fibers. Examples of such healthy foods are vegetables, fruits, oatmeal, whole grain etc.
Such kind of healthy foods keep your insulin levels even and control blood sugar levels as well as your hunger. So you can develop a much better control over your hunger if you get into the habit of eating healthy nutrition rich foods and stop eating junk!
Gaining control over hunger means you stand a much better chance of getting rid of belly fat quickly, easily and permanently without putting in too much effort. Avoid eating processed food as much as you can and try eating natural food as much as possible.
7)Get sufficient sleep: Peaceful, calm, relaxing and restful sleep at night is one of the keys to long lasting health and strong immune system.
If your immune system is strong, your body can fight off diseases and keep fit. Such fitness is necessary if you want to lose weight permanently and stay slim.
When you are tired, you may tend to feel hungry or feel like eating something. This can lead to unhealthy food choices or overeating ultimately leading to weight gain and a pot belly.
By getting proper sleep at night, you can ensure that you stay active during the day so that you burn more fat, lose belly fat and stay energetic and fit.
Keep in mind that quality of sleep is more important than quantity. You may sleep for 7-8 hours but don't feel so rested and another person may sleep just 5 hours and be happy, healthy and active.
So try to improve sleep quality by cultivating proper sleep habits. Realize that proper sleep habits may indirectly have an impact on your weight and even assist you in your quest to lose belly fat quickly.

If you face a problem of procrastination because you overburden or over-commit yourself, then struggle to finish off the tasks on time which you assumed earlier that you will finish with ease, then you may be suffering from a problem similar to mine.
I too would think that I will do such and such a thing within this time and then do another thing etc. I would underestimate the time or effort required to do the task.
Needless to say, I would soon feel overwhelmed or disappointed even frustrated when I fail to achieve the objective within my time frame.
Here are a few helpful tips to handle such problem. We should set healthy deadlines. D not set too tight deadlines for yourself. A yourself the time frame to complete tasks without hurrying up or difficulty, even after taking breaks in between and maybe even lazing off for some time in between.
A Neat Little Trick:
Double or triple your estimated time to complete tasks and see how easy it becomes for you to get started with enthusiasm and attack the task with such aggression which you previously didn't imagine possible.
Since our original problem was underestimating the time required for a task, what we can do is increase our estimated time. Life becomes so easy then!
You can avoid putting too much burden on yourself so that you don't feel like even starting the work. I allow myself the luxury of completing tasks without too much time pressure and this has gained me so much peace of mind - thank you.
By allowing myself a long time frame to complete tasks at leisurely pace, I find so much peace of mind. I immediately find it so easy to motivate myself to go after these tasks with new found enthusiasm and aggression. My procrastination problem is all of a sudden automatically completely cured or atleast reduced to a considerable extent.
Its so much fun to work on things when you aren't pressured by time constraints. The work quality can improve greatly as you now have the time to focus even on minor details and do them to perfection.
More Creativity and Better Work
Your creativity can also be enhanced as you have more time to think and plan on how you will approach and complete the task and what improvements you can think of making. This kind of thinking can help in getting your juices flowing and completely transform you from a procrastinator to someone who seems so passionate about this particular task.
You may surprise yourself and others greatly by this transformation. It may seem unbelievable even to yourself at first. And all this after making just a small change - i.e. increasing your time estimate and giving yourself a lot more time to finish off the task at a comfortable and healthy pace.
What this does is that it almost immediately relaxes you and puts you in a more positive frame of mind. Your apprehensions might fade away and a new positive beliefs overtake them. Just try it out a few times and judge the results yourself!
No More Excuse for Procrastination
Another benefit is that it removes any weak excuses you might have about not finishing the work. Now you have allowed yourself sufficient time to think about, plan in detail, research, draft, edit and improvise your work till you are satisfied.
I tend to feel shameful if I am still unable to complete my work even after so much time I have alloted to it. So I will try my level best not to put myself to shame and do the work with fierce determination. Wow! I didn't know before that I was blessed with such determination and strength.
So most of the time I will complete my tasks on time. That too without putting too much pressure or burden on myself and taking breaks in between and working at a pace I find comfortable and not too exhausting.
Sometimes even if I don't finish off within the time limit, its not such a big problem because most of the work might have been done by then. Only a small percentage would be remaining which can be easily knocked off quickly.
Sometimes its a great tool for preventing distraction. As your time limit is nearing end, you will feel compelled and motivated to finish off whatever remains of your task.
Initially you might have given in to certain distractions because you had a lot of time on your hands, but when nearing the end you can find great determination to fight off distractions and laziness. Isn't it cool?
I have observed this phenomena when experimenting with this strategy. This is because of the above mentioned reason - you don't want to feel ashamed of not completing the task even after allowing yourself so much time for it.
Want to hear another benefit of this strategy - it allows time for any unforeseen delays like some unexpected phone call or visitor or any other urgent work which is quite possible to come up and keeps you away from your work. You will now have the time to deal with these delays and still make it within your specified deadline. Ok, enough said, now go out and actually try out this technique if you want to defeat procrastination problem and avoid feeling overwhelmed or over-scheduling yourself.
Am I taking more time than necessary?
You might argue that by following this advice it will take a lot of extra time to get things done because you are setting huge time frames for each task.
In reply to this above doubt, I will pose 1 simple question to you - isn't it immensely better to get things done a little bit late than not to get them done at all?
Moreover, you might have wrongly estimated the time frame initially when you planned to get some work done in few minutes or hours. It might have taken you almost this much amount of time anyways because you were in the habit of wrongly underestimating the time required for any task.
Atleast this strategy will prevent you from certain breaking of confidence and lowering of self-esteem by far exceeding your initial under-estimation of time.

If you are suffering from tiredness problem described above then chances are that you are not getting sufficient exercise during the day.
This may sound completely contrary and even crazy. You might be thinking that you are feeling tired and I am saying that you should get more exercise in order to feel less tired? Have I gone nuts?
Top Reasons for Tiredness:
You might be surprised to know that if our bodies do not get sufficient physical movement, we will actually feel tired as well as sleepy. Our bodies were not designed to just sit idly or lie all day long without doing anything.
I am not saying that the only reason why you ever feel tired is because of lack of physical activity. Ofcourse there are other factors and causes for tiredness. The causes of tiredness may range from lack of proper sleep, low sugar levels, too much stress, obesity, poor diet, thyroid problems, medication etc.
If you do not suffer from any serious health problem or sugar problem, and still face the problem of being tired without doing any particular hard work, then chances are that your lifestyle habits like improper eating, or insufficient exercise might be contributing in some way to the feeling of being tired all the time. You may need some help and tips to stop tiredness and get back your life.
Tips to Overcome Tiredness & Lethargy - How to Avoid Feeling Tired and Sleepy All the Time
Try some tips in order to overcome tiredness and feel some energy when you require or want it:
1. Drink a glass of water: I have found this extremely useful. Whenever I have a glass of water, it immediately refreshes my mind and nerves and I feel some energy coming to me all of a sudden.
Try to drink 8 or more glasses of water a day and you may feel active and energetic throughout the day. Try to have water at regular intervals, so if you haven't had water from a long time then get yourself a glass of water. Its most probably free for you, isn't it?
2. Take short naps during the day: Now short naps are called as power naps and not without reason. They help to energize our tired bodies. Naps as short as 10-20 minutes during the day, specially in the afternoons, can really revive your dying energy levels and can make you go on for another couple of hours or more without any feeling of tiredness!
3. Eat lots of raw vegetables and fruits: They are low in calories. So you can have a lot of them without the danger of putting on too much of unwanted weight. Not only that but they are so rich in the essential nutrients that your body needs.
Include a lot of salad with your meals, and replace your unhealthy snacks like potato chips or oily items with carrots, cucumbers and other healthy food choices. You may soon notice a rise in your energy levels.
4. Spend some time in the sun: Try to get some morning sunshine. The early morning sunshine can be very beneficial to health, body as well as in keeping you active during the day.
5. Walk for 30 minutes: Seriously, walking is an excellent exercise. It provides movement to all parts of the body. If you can get into the habit of walking daily without fail for 15-30 minutes, then you may enjoy various health benefits.
Your energy levels may soar. You may feel motivated to have more physical activity than you are currently having. You may not feel like sitting in front of that damn T.V. and spoiling away your health and time.
The dose of fresh air that you can get when you go for a pleasant walk early in the mornings or evenings is also an excellent blessing. Walking alone may be boring for most, so try to take some friend along with you. Both of you can enjoy pleasant talk as well as benefit from the walking!
Ending Tiredness Problem Forever:
Finally, learn to handle stress without letting it create havoc with your life. Learning to discipline oneself and staying away from eating too much, eating unhealthy foods etc. and finally taking medical advice for chronic and extreme conditions are also in order.
Do you know that constant long term tiredness and fatigue might weaken your body's immune system and make you susceptible to diseases? If you are suffering from constant tiredness and want to get rid of it, I can recommend you a resource for that here - Ending Tiredness Now

If you tried any plan which promised fast weight loss within 10 days or a week etc., then chances are you might have been very much disappointed with the results you got.
This is the case with most diet plans in the market. They are not effective for easy, fast weight loss. Do you know the reasons why you might have failed at earlier attempts to lose pounds quickly?
First of all, many diet plans are too strict to follow. Many average people cannot keep up with them for long.
Secondly, they eliminate certain food groups completely from your diet. This is very bad as our body needs all kinds of foods, even fat. What we have to do is restrict the intake of certain foods but not cut them totally.
Thirdly, many diet plans keep you starved throughout the day.
This is not at all a good weight loss strategy. As starving yourself will tend to lower your metabolism rate which can stop further weight loss after a few days.
Now lets change our focus from what doesn't work to what works. Lets find out how to lose 3-4 pounds fast and easy in a week or 10 days.
So how do you lose 3 pounds in one week or so? Is there any effective and good weight loss program?
Fortunately there are a few diet programs which can help you lose a few pounds in a week or so. There is a popular program called as "Fat Loss 4 Idiots".
The program says that you can lose about 9 pounds in 11 days. But this may be a little over-hyped. Still you should be able to lose atleast 4-6 pounds in the 11 day program.
So if your target is to lose around 3 pounds in a week, then you can achieve your goal with this program. You can keep repeating the 11 day cycles as long as you wish to lose further weight.
Suppose you lose 3 pounds every week by following this program, till you reach your desired weight. Wouldn't that be great? The good thing is that this diet plan is not at all difficult to follow like others and it is not so restrictive. So you can follow it with relative ease.

Have you gained weight after marriage?
People report that they start gaining weight after marriage. Do you have the same problem? Have you put on weight within a few years of your marriage?
There can be various possible reasons for this weight gain after marriage. One of the reasons could be that people get more comfortable and then start eating more.
Or else if even one of the spouse has a habit of eating a lot, the other may catch up unknowingly at first. Soon it can become a habit with both.
Holidays, picnics, parties, functions and going out with your spouse can all lead to some over-eating or eating unhealthy or fatty foods. This may turn to unwanted weight gain.
So you see some of the common reasons why people may pick up weight after they are married are:
1. Habits are shared between couples
2. A lot of picnics, eating out, and functions may happen leading to weight gain
3. People tend to become more comfortable and relaxed after marriage and they may not be as figure conscious or health conscious as before.
How to Lose Weight and Avoid Weight Gain After Marriage:
Now the question arises as to how to combat these factors and prevent weight gain. It needs a little bit of determination but it can be done. Here are some tips:
As mentioned above, habits are usually shared between couples. This can be turned into an advantage too. How can you use this as an advantage to keep slim or lose weight?
Its simple. You can start a healthy eating or a weight loss program along with your spouse. This way if you make a positive change in your life, your spouse can incorporate that in their life too.
For example, if you begin to start walking for 30 minutes a day, you can ask your spouse to join you and both can benefit from this. Any exercise plan, healthy eating program etc. can be started simultaneously by both of you.
So, in your weight loss efforts you will not be alone. You can enlist the support of your spouse. Even if they don't actively join along with you, still they can give you moral support and encouragement.
They can help you avoid temptations, giving up too soon, and can encourage you when you are disappointed and not getting results initially. If you were totally alone, you might have easily given up during such moments of trial.
Advantages of Marriage in Weight Loss and Staying Slim:
So you see, marriage can work to your advantage in adopting a healthy lifestyle in the following ways:
1. You can start a healthy fitness program with your spouse - both giving company to each other
2. Your spouse can encourage you and help you during tough situations and when you feel like giving up
3. Your love for your spouse and kids can serve as motivation to look good, stay slim and be active. This can propel you to start a fitness or exercise program with strong determination.
So, yes its definitely possible to stay slim, active and healthy even after wedding and kids. Like I said earlier, you need a dose of determination and will power. Start making marriage work to your advantage instead of disadvantage.

Why Do I Get Tired So Easily? How Can I Put a Stop to My Constant Tiredness?
Do you always seem to get tired easily? Even after sleeping and resting a lot? You can take a little heart from the fact that you are not alone with this problem. Infact 25% of the people report high levels of tiredness throughout their life!
A word of caution ... constant tiredness can be bad for your health and immune system. Your lifestyle habits might be the major contributing factors to your tiredness problem. So you have to start doing something soon to stop your constant fatigue. This article might shock you as to the real cause of your tiredness.
Why do you get tired so easily?
You may be wondering what is causing the fatigue even though you have taken sufficient rest. The problem might be that you are taking too much rest.
You may notice a common habit among most people who complain about too much tiredness. Almost all of them say that they sleep a lot and take rest, yet they feel tired all the time. Does that indicate something to you?
You may find it hard to believe, but people who sleep too much or are couch potatoes - they tend to feel more sleepy and tired. The less the physical activity that you may be doing the more chances of feeling tired!
People whose work involves sitting for long periods can feel sleepy and drowsy because of lack of physical movement. Now this may be a little hard to believe at first.
We have all been led to believe that the more physical activity we do the more tired our body becomes. We believe that just sitting or lie down will not tire us out.
Simple Tips to Reduce Tiredness & Enjoy Yourself
But you try this out - increase your physical activity everyday for the next few days and see how active and energetic you begin to feel. If you feel too much sleepy, then try to reduce the amount of time you sleep daily and watch how less sleepy you actually feel after that!
This may sound weird but there is scientific reason behind it. Actually our bodies do not need 7-8 hours of sleep. we might infact be doing more harm than good by sleeping so much. Not to mention the extra hours that are wasted because of too much sleep.
People might suffer health problems from lack of sleep. At the same time, they may face health and tiredness problems due to excess sleep. If you are sleeping for 4.5-6 hours a day, it might actually be sufficient. The quality of sleep is more important than quantity.
However short power naps during the afternoon are known to be beneficial to health and for increasing energy levels during the day. After a tiring half day's work, a sweet short nap in the afternoon can do wonders to boost your energy levels and also compensate for any possible shortcoming in sleep the previous night!
By the way stress can be a big energy drainer making us feel tired very soon and easily. Moderate levels of regular exercise is known to be beneficial in handling stress and so can be good for reducing our tiredness levels too! Exercising can also improve your stamina.
Drinking a lot of water can also raise energy levels. Get into the habit of drinking atleast 2 liters of water daily. It is good for your body and energy levels.

Do you want to lose weight really fast and easy? There are many weight loss programs available in the market which promise you the moon. But don't get fooled by them. You really need to study the background and the results before trying out a weight loss program whether online or offline.
To cut short your search, I will mention one of top weight loss programs that has been doing rounds on the internet. It is regarded by many as the best online weight loss program. This program is called as "Fat Loss 4 Idiots".
Lets see briefly what makes this program special from countless others in the market.
FL4I - The Fast and Easy Weight Loss Program
Fat Loss 4 Idiots is a fast and easy weight loss program. It is just a 11 day program - that means you can start seeing results within just days and you do not have to wait long. You may lose a few pounds in 11 days and you can repeat those 11 day cycles as many times as you wish till you have succeeded in your weight loss goals.
Its an easy weight loss program because it is not at all so strict like the other diet programs which make you starve or eat only certain kinds of foods. This program is not at all restrictive, so its quite easy for many people to follow it. And there are no special foods to order in order to practice this program.
Fl4I - The Effective and Best Online Weight Loss Program
How can you lose weight with this program while so many other diets fail? The reason is simple - most diet plans start wrong. They make you starve or cut out certain food groups completely. This can infact be harmful for weight loss as it lowers your metabolism.
Fat Loss 4 Idiots, on the other hand, relies on a method called "calorie shifting" to lose weight quickly and easily. Calorie shifting means you are made to eat different amount of calories on different days of your 11 day cycle. This will confuse the body's metabolism and make the body lose fat faster.
You are made to eat different kinds of foods with varying ratio of fats, carbs and proteins. And you have to eat 4 meals a day in your 11 day diet cycle. All these tend to help boost your metabolism rate, keeping it active, rather than lower it like in the case of other weight loss programs.
So you see it is quite an effective weight loss program - infact regarded as one of the best online weight loss program.
FL4I - An Inexpensive and Popular Weight Loss Program
Even though this is such a popular weight loss program, it is quite inexpensive and cheap to try out. The cheap price range makes it affordable for many people to give it a try.
What's more interesting is that it comes with a money back guarantee. So if you are not seeing proper results after trying out this inexpensive weight loss program, you can even ask for a full 100% refund of your money.
All these above features make it a very popular weight loss program online. Thousands of people tried it out and this program has been discussed in many forums and weight loss communities. This is an indication of the popularity of this effective and cheap weight loss program.

Many people will tell you that you need to drink a lot of water if you want to stay healthy, have more energy, lose weight and flush out toxins from your body. It is usually recommended that you drink atleast 8 glasses of water or more per day. This is about 2 liters or more of water daily!
But for people who do not have this habit, how can they drink more water? The are unable to force themselves and are looking for tips to drink more water easily without pushing themselves too much.
Another question that can arise is how can we keep track of how much water we are drinking? Lets try to tackle both questions head on and explore simple tips to drink more water as well as keep track of your water intake.
How Much Water are You Drinking Everyday?
In order to track how much water you have drunk and how much still you need to drink in order to fulfill your daily quota, keep a container of water - of about 2 liters volume. Usually a glass of water is about 250 ml, so 4 glasses of water approximately equal 1 liter.
Everyday fill this container with water. Then whenever you feel thirsty or want to drink, try to drink water from this container only. By the end of the day you should finish off the water in the container.
This way you can keep track of how much water you are drinking daily. Now let us tackle the next question - how do you motivate yourself to drink more water for weight loss, or better health specially if you are not in the habit of drinking lot of water.
A Very Simple Tip to Drink More Water Everyday for the Rest of Your Lives:
This is quite an easy and simple tip. I have tried and find it absolutely easy to drink lots of water using this trick. If you can follow this easy tip then you don't have to worry about not drinking enough water ever in your life!
Actually what you can do is set hourly quota for drinking water. Suppose you are planning to drink 8 glasses of water everyday, then it comes to less than half a glass of water per hour.
But since you will be spending about 6-8 hours sleeping and would hardly drink at that time, so deduct 8 hours from 24. It comes to about 16 hours.
Now your aim is to drink 8 glasses in 16 waking hours. That's an easy calculation now - drink 1/2(half) glass of water per hour.
So make an hourly commitment to drink atleast half a glass of water. As each hour passes by, you should force yourself to drink atleast half glass. Wow, isn' t that so easy now?
Drinking half glass should not be too difficult for most of us, even if we do not feel so thirsty at that time. By simply following this hourly commitment, we can easily achieve our desired goal of drinking 8 glasses of water a day. This water is very helpful for various bodily functions and it is also good for weight loss.
More Tips to Drink More Water:
So you see how simple, easy and effective the above tip can be to drink enough water everyday. Just follow that tip and you should be able to increase your water intake without much fuss.
However for your convenience, I will mention further tips to drink more water everyday:
Tip #1: People who sit for long hours on their desks or in front of computer can keep a bottle of water at their desk while working, studying etc. This can serve as a constant reminder to you to keep drinking water.
Many times I feel like drinking water but I am sitting somewhere and feel lazy to get up. Keeping a bottle of water at my desk can prevent from feeling lazy to drink water if its not within easy reach.
Tip #2: If you are in a cold place or the weather is cold then drink warm or lukewarm water instead of hot drinks like coffee etc. The tip to drink more water in cold weathers is to go for lukewarm water.
Sure you can have tea and coffee a few times, but drink lukewarm water more frequently. It not only quenches your thirst but also keeps your body properly hydrated.

It is said that many times our hunger pangs are just indications that our body needs more water. It is said that people can easily confuse thirst for hunger and end up eating even though they don't need to eat at that moment.
So how can we find out whether our hunger is really hunger or just thirst? Whenever you feel hungry, gulp down a glass of water or more. If after a few minutes you still feel hungry then it can be an indication that you hunger is real.
If on the other hand, you don't feel so hungry then you might not have been hungry in the first place. It may have been just water your body was craving for.
So drinking more water can prevent you from confusing thirst with hunger and prevent overeating. It will also increase metabolism rate of your body - metabolism refers to the process of burning calories by the body.
The healthier the metabolism, the less likely you are to put on weight. So drink water for maintaining healthy metabolism and losing weight easily. Water is also an appetite suppressant.

So its absolutely recommended for students or employees to keep a bottle of water handy at your desk while studying or doing any work.
And do keep drinking from this bottle every now and then while working. It keeps you focused and its good for the brain.
Remember that we are constantly losing body fluids due to sweating, urinating and even bowels. So you need to constantly supply water to keep the body hydrated sufficiently.
4. Get well soon:
You might have heard the common advice given to people who are suffering from cold and fever - drink lot of water. This advice has some wisdom in it.
Water can be beneficial in controlling fever as well as thinning out the mucus in the body, when you are down with cold.

You might have tried many weight loss methods but without success. But the amazing thing is that common everyday foods and simple habits, can sometimes be the best ways to lose weight fast. They can be really effective when other things have failed.
Apples can be very good for your weight loss. If you want to burn fat in a healthy manner, then start eating apples regularly. Eating apples can be one of the best ways to lose weight fast and naturally.
How does apple help you to lose weight fast? It helps in several ways..
1. You should eat atleast 3 apples a day, maybe even more sometimes. If you can replace your snacks with apples, you can be doing yourself a very big favor.
Whenever you feel like having some unhealthy snacks, eat an apple or a banana instead. Initially you may have to force yourself to do it, but after some time it can get easier to eat apples instead of munching unhealthy and fattening snack or bakery items.
2. You can also eat a full apple before meals. By doing this, you will tend to eat less as you already had something as filling as a whole apple.
3. Apples are low in calories. A medium sized apple carries only 70 calories or so. So you can munch on apples without much fear of putting on weight.
4. Apples are rich in pectin which is a fiber that promotes healthy digestion. It also gives you a feeling of fullness so that you will not want to eat much for a few hours after having an apple.
5. Apples have high water content. Many people nowadays do not drink sufficient water. It seems that not drinking sufficient water can lead to food cravings - I know it seems strange!
6. Apple is a good source of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients required by your body.
7. Researchers from the University at Rio De Janeiro revealed that their studies conducted on women who added fruits to their diet showed that people who added apples or pears to their diet plans lost more weight than those who didn't do so.
So Start Eating More Apples and Lose Weight Fast and Quickly:
We might have all heard that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. It seems that it can help keep excess pounds at bay too. And its such a yummy, delicious fruit.
Isn't eating apples one of the best ways to lose weight fast and naturally? So start before meals and also replace your unhealthy snacks with apples, carrots, cucumber or bananas.
If you can do this consistently for a few days, before you even realize it you may have lost a few pounds of weight, wow!
By replacing your snacks with healthy ones you are not only helping in weight loss but also developing a healthy habit by avoiding to the utmost the unhealthy snacks you used to eat before.
But this trick is meant to boost your weight loss by a few pounds a month. Don't expect to lose lots and lots of weight fast with this.
So the Best Way to Lose Weight Fast and Easy:
By replacing your snacks with healthy ones you are not only helping in weight loss but also developing a healthy habit by avoiding to the utmost the unhealthy snacks you used to eat before.
Make a commitment to follow this tip for atleast a month to see good results. Do not give up too soon. Remember this is not something to be used for weight loss and then forgotten soon afterwards. You should make it a habit of replacing your unhealthy snacks with healthier ones like apples etc.

So you have failed at another weight loss diet? You might be thinking how to lose weight fast as nothing seems to be working for me right now!
Why is it so damn frustrating to try and lose weight fast? You seem to be trying every program available in the market and yet no success.
You really want to lose weight fast and enjoy life like before. Because of your weight you seem to be feeling embarrassed and self-conscious.
Only if you can finally lose a few pounds quickly and surprise one. Wouldn't it be absolutely great?
If you have the exact same feelings I mentioned above, then most probably you are not at all alone!
I do agree that many weight loss programs out there are just scams or plan ineffective when it comes to losing weight. But still do not despair, there is still hope and still effective weight loss programs out there.
Do Not Lose Heart - You can Still Lose Weight Fast and Easy:
While it may be natural to lose heart if you have tried many times before, but do remember those folks who were over-weight but lost weight successfully.
Many people before you have reported to losing weight and enjoying fitness like they had before their obesity problem. You too can be one among such people, but you need to be courageous, a little bit patient and consistent.
One of the big problems with people is that they want to lose too much weight in a very short period of time. It is because of this tendency that people get sucked into so many weight loss scams.
Keep one thing in mind - if you want to get thin overnight, then that is highly highly unlikely to happen. You might spend years with this wish and not lose any weight at all.
I am suggesting that you take a middle path. By all means try for faster weight loss but not too fast - not too much too soon!
Why You Shouldn't Try for Very Rapid Weight Loss:
- Too rapid weight loss is not possible most of the times
- You will try to take unhealthy shortcuts for fast weight loss
- You will tend to fall for ineffective and scam programs
- You are likely to end up disappointed and discouraged than before
Instead of following tips and program which are proven to work for healthy weight loss, you might end up going after those ineffective and scams that promise you the moon .
Fast Weight Loss Program That Can Benefit You:
The middle path is to try to lose weight but not very fast nor very slow. Within short period of time you might realize that you have actually lost a considerable amount of weight and have not spoiled your health also.
If you are convinced that this is the best way to lose weight then let me point you in the direction of 1 such weight loss diet program which can help you to lose weight fast (maybe you will start losing weight within a week) - Easy Weight Loss Plan
It is a 11 day plan and you might lose a few pounds if you follow it properly. You can repeat the same program for another 11 days to lose further weight. You can even take a break in between and then again resume another 11 day cycle.
Just keep in mind not to get overly ambitious and spoil your health. Take small steps and be consistent. You might lose weight faster than you imagine!

But you can definitely start losing some and continue for more days until you have finally reached your dream weight.
In order to lose weight quickly you don't have to starve yourself. Infact, it is bad for weight loss if you starve yourself. This is so because the body's metabolism rate drops when you aren't eating properly.
Slow metabolism means less weight loss. So your dream of losing weight quickly in 10 days might not be realized. Also stay away from appetite suppressants and other dangerous diet pills. There are other healthier ways to lose weight quickly.
What you have to strive for is try to lose small amount of weight in 10-15 days and then continue that plan for another 10-15 days. So you can keep losing weight in ten day cycles.
This is a better approach than trying to lose all weight in short time and failing. Losing some weight is better than not losing at all in your greed to lose too much too soon, isn't it?
Here is my review of a diet program which can help you lose weight in 10 days or so. Check it out here - FL4I Review

Rule #1 for Permanent, Healthy Weight Loss:
One of the first rules of permanent weight loss is to eat right. Eating right in no way means to eat more. It means that you have to make healthy food choices.
Healthy food choices mean that you have to avoid unhealthy foods, junk foods or foods with low nutritional value. Instead of that you need to eat foods that provide nutrition and are not harmful to your body.
At the same time, you should not completely stop eating a particular food group. It is because our body needs all kinds of foods in order to have a balanced diet necessary to remain fit in the long run.
If you totally avoid any 1 food group, you might develop deficiency after some time related to that food. It can cause illness or other health problems for you.
What you can do is to lessen the frequency and amount that you eat from a group which is not good for your weight like fats etc. Do not completely stop eating fat, but lessen the amount as well as the frequency of it.
Another rule of healthy permanent weight loss and fitness is to be physically active. See, you cannot remain fit and healthy without being physically active. Our bodies were not designed to lead sedentary lives or be couch potatoes.
The excuses of not having enough time to exercise, or being too lazy should be shrugged off. You have to find out ways and methods to include sufficient physical activity during your day.
What you can do here is to find out some strenuous activity that you enjoy doing. It can be simple one like going out with your friend for an evening or morning walk, or playing a sport which provides you with enough exercise.
Once you can find something that gives exercise to your body and which you enjoy, you might find it easier to do it on consistent basis. It will not feel like a burden.
Amazingly, you might find it easier to find the time for physical activities out of your busy schedule if you enjoy those activities. If you don't enjoy something, then you tend to come up with a lot many excuses for not doing it - and one of the common excuse is not having enough time!
You can further help your cause by doing simple activities throughout the day like climbing the stairs instead of the elevator once in the day, parking your vehicles a little farther than you like so that you have to walk the extra distance to your office or home. Or do some household work that involves moving about, lifting things etc.
All these can be beneficial to you if done on regular basis. So try to develop the habit little by little.
Do you have stress in your life? Too much stress is known to be at the back of many illnesses and diseases. At the same time it can be bad for your weight too.
How can it be bad for weight? One of the reasons is that people who are stressed out or depressed tend to eat more. People are likely to develop the habit of over-eating if they are in stress.
Stress will not only induce you to eat more, but can also affect food choices. People normally make unhealthy food choices when under the influence of high stress.
So find ways of relaxing yourself. Spend some quality time in nature observing the birds, the trees, or sitting at the beach observing the waves and hearing the sound as they splash against the rocks.
Spending time totally absorbed in such natural settings can tend to lessen our stress and make us stronger to face the challenges once we get back to our normal work.
You might also try out other relaxation techniques whichever you find helpful to you. Learning how to cope with stress can be an essential skill for leading a healthy life and avoiding obesity.
Proper sleep is also important. The quality of sleep is more important than the quantity. Research seems to point that lack of quality sleep might lead to weight gain because of various reasons such as poor food choices, over-eating, improper digestion etc.
So do not neglect the importance of having a restful, relaxing sleep at night. The amount of time you sleep is very less important than the quality of sleep. You should enjoy a peaceful, restful sleep at night so that when you wake up you are feeling full of energy and are in good spirits.
If you find yourself feeling rested, happy and energetic when you wake up in the morning and you don't feel fatigue, then it can be an indication that you had a good night's sleep. Thats a thing to be happy about.
If you still feel tired, fatigued even after sleeping for several hours, then you probably have a problem. You might want to consult a doctor or something. Here is a resource you may find useful - End Tiredness and Avoid Sleep Deprivation Problems
Condition for Permanent Weight Loss
You see all the above rules I mentioned for weight loss are such things which are absolutely essential part of our life and they have far reaching effects even in other aspects of our health besides weight.
If you do not pay proper attention to eating healthy, exercising sufficiently, having proper sleep, handling stress effectively - then not only is that harmful for your weight problems but also bad for your overall health.
These problems might affect your health in many different ways and if such unhealthy habits continue then you might face a lot of health issues later in your life.
So weight loss is not an isolated issue or something to be considered just on temporary basis. If you want to be slim and fit forever then you need to change your whole lifestyle for the better.
You have to pay attention to all the things I mentioned above. Only then can you enjoy weight loss and also keep that weight off after losing it.
Otherwise if you take temporary approaches like taking diet pills, going on strict diets etc. then they may work only for a short period. After that you are likely to again gain back the weight you dread. Not just that, you are likely to also spoil your health further in the bargain.
So unless people are ready to change their lifestyle, their eating habits etc for the better, there may not be an easy alternative solution to the present obesity epidemic.
Healthy Permanent Weight Loss Solution:
I recommend the following program if you want permanent and healthy weight loss - Burn the Fat Program
This is written by a fitness expert Tom Venuto who has more than 20 years of experience in fitness, nutrition and body building field. So it is not a rubbish book like countless others in the market.

But this quick weight loss program is a little different. It is not so strict and doesn't ask you to starve yourself. So if you want to lose weight in 10 days or 15 days then you can definitely give it a fair try - Lose weight in 3 weeks

The world keeps moving and changing. For people who do nothing, they are as good as dead. If we do not keep improving ourselves with each passing day, it can actually mean we are slipping back.
In time, we will be overtaken and devastated simply because we were lazy to not utilize our time, resources, energy and skills to enhance our knowledge, experience, career, business, relations whatever.
So keep this in mind. We need to constantly monitor and be aware of where we are heading. Laziness can be a great enemy of ours which is not to be taken lightly.
Procrastination can stem out of laziness. Though there may be other reasons why we procrastinate, but many times laziness and procrastination go hand in hand together like childhood friends.
Do you know what are the disadvantages of being lazy?
First of all, you will be condemned to a low quality life. Simply because you didn't study well while in college due to laziness. In your career you don't take the required actions to increase knowledge and expertise and become indispensable part of the company.
If you are in business, laziness can be fatal. You can lose clients or orders if you fail to act on time. You may find excuses not to work hard or work overtime even though your business demands it.
Laziness can also be bad for relationships and friendships. By being lazy, we might not do the things that are needed to be done. Even simple requests by out family members or friends might go unheeded causing them appointment because of us.
Laziness and procrastination are also big time wasters. If you want to be good in time management, then you have to eliminate the habit of procrastinating.
Firstly, you should be aware of when you are feeling lazy. Awareness and acknowledgment of the problem can be the first step towards solving it.
Low Energy Levels, Tiredness and Laziness:
One of the main causes of laziness can be because of low energy. Sometimes we just do not have the physical energy to do a task. We feel tired, bored, sleepy etc.
There can be many reasons why we feel tired. Sometimes we are genuinely tired because of hard work. In that case, the remedy is simple - we need a good rest. Then we should soon be back to our former best.
But in case we feel tired all the time then its an indication of some problem. Either we are suffering from lack of quality sleep, or we are not eating properly. Our dietary habits can also affect our energy levels.
Stress, depression and physical illness or problems can also affect energy levels and make us feel tired. You need to analyze what possible reasons could be contributing to this problem. Maybe you might also need the help of a qualified doctor in such cases.
However there are a few suggestions which can be helpful to you in overcoming your constant fatigue and tiredness. There is 1 such helpful program which you can check out here - End Tiredness Now
You can also check out my articles about healthy sleeping tips, and power naps to improve your energy. You can also call power naps as short energy sleep.
If tiredness is not the cause of your laziness, then continue reading below...
Simple Tips for Overcoming Laziness & Procrastination:
Most of the time laziness occurs because we are not sure of what to do. We lack a clear picture in our minds or do not have a plan of things to do. This can cause confusion and lead to laziness.
One of the ways you can avoid laziness and overcome it to a considerable extent is to have a daily plan of activities.
The day before, make a plan of activities or tasks for the next day. Include those things which are important and have to be done the next day. Spend some time visualizing yourself doing these things tomorrow.
Then when tomorrow comes try your best to finish all the activities on your to-do list. Once you have a plan, it might be easier for you to escape from the pangs of laziness.
At the same time, also make sure that your to-do list does not include too many activities. We might also procrastinate when we feel overwhelmed or tired. Just be easy on yourself and set realistic deadlines for activities and do not try to do too much otherwise you would be setting yourself up for appointments.
This brings us to another reason for laziness. If we feel we have failed in something then it could also cause us to become lazy next time around.
So make sure that you do not overwhelm yourselves. Make your to-do list small. Its better to have just a couple of important activities in your daily plan and do them and then have the rest of the day free than to have tens of activities many of which you fail to do.
When this happens, you will no longer feel like maintaining a to-do list from the next day onwards. You will quit this good habit. So a good strategy is to be easy on yourself and make your to-do list such that all assignments can be easily accomplished the next day.
You should also have some time for relaxation and for unforeseen emergencies which might cause delays. If you have some difficult tasks in that list, break them up into smaller chunks until you no longer feel difficulty or incapable of doing them.
If you have failed in some thing before, and now you are procrastinating in doing that thing again, what you can do is to analyze your past performance. Find out what mistakes you made. Think how you can do it in a better manner this time around.
If you still feel unable to do that thing, ask yourself what strengths or skills do you think you need to accomplish this task. Then you can try to find means of developing those skills and acquiring that necessary knowledge.
All the above tips should be helpful in curbing this weakness called laziness.

Learn how you can eliminate them in 21 days or less than that by changing the way you think about them - Eliminating Bad Habits
The Successful Habit:
Another important suggestion is to start small and improve gradually in any aspect of your life. Do not try to take giant leaps. Usually people who are in a hurry often get late in achieving things they so desperately desire.
It is because they are always trying to take shortcuts or trying to do too much and obviously fail. And it is usually people who are consistent and persistent who are successful.
If you have been lazy all your life, its not wise to all of a sudden try to be the most active person you can dream of. Remember the story of the hare and tortoise you heard in childhood? The moral of the story was - Slow and steady wins the race.
So take small, baby steps towards improvement. Stretch your comfort zones little by little. Expand your horizons and improve your talents one small step at a time.
Consistency is the key and you cannot be consistent if you are too hard on yourself. You can only do those things consistently which do not burn you out.
