Fastest Weight Loss Plan

Fastest Weight Loss Plan - Losing weight seems hard for many. Many have tried and failed. Then tried some more and failed some more. In fact there is no complicated secret for losing weight. It is simply a matter of burning more calories than you consume in a day to create a calorie deficit. How quick you lose the weight depends on how big that deficit is.

You need to simply work out what your BMR is. BMR is basal metabolic rate and means the amount of calories your body would burn during the course of a day without you exercising. Factors that influence BMR are sex, age and weight. Once you have your BMR, work out how many calories you burn through exercise and you have your daily total.

Once you have your daily total simply consume less every day for weight loss.

While calories are not completely irrelevant, the developing consensus is that weight loss/gain and body composition are significantly affected by the composition of our diets, our activities, and environmental factors, which primary affect us by influencing the levels and actions of various hormones (most notably insulin). Other than the Weight Watchers diet which I believe is based on calories, most of the other popular diets (Zone, South Beach, Atkins, Paleo, Schwarzbein) consider these factors to various degrees.

To anyone wanting to find out more for themselves, google "calorie hypothesis" or for the most exhaustive overview, look up a book called Good Calories Bad Calories by Gary Taubes (no connection to me, except that I follow him on Twitter)

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
