Alchemical Weight Loss – Transformation of Excessive Weight Into Human Spirit

Jan 02 2022 Published by kyu7 under Uncategorized

The unsolved problem of obesity:

Coping with overweight is one of the most desperating issues for those who experience it. Conventional efforts for treating the problem by means of diet and physical exercise are revealed again and again as ineffective in the long run. Still, most human beings keep trying in the same ways. The result is always another rise in weight, with the addition of failure feelings, helplessness and desperation. The reason for failure lies in the misunderstanding of the dynamics in which the physical body gains weight.

The known diet is based on the assumption that the physical body raises as a result of excessive caloric balance which turns into physical material – excessive fat. According to this understanding the derived conclusion is that reducing the consumption of physical material – food – will bring about a reduction of the physical body. This perception is mistaken because it is based on a narrowing view and on analytical causation, which suggest a physical solution to what is sees as a problem that is physical in essence. This conception oversimplifies the complexity of man and neglects the many strata that affect his life, far beyond the physical dimension. Due to that, it cannot offer an effective solution to the problem. The holistic perspective on man tells us that in order to solve a problem, physical as well, we are ought to expand the point of view and understand the entirety of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual causes, in which it was created.

The roots of the obesity problem – Reversed alchemy of gold into lead:

The alchemical perspective on the obesity phenomenon begins with the perception that man is an entity that own creation forces, and is capable of building by himself its physical body, emotional world, mental forces and spiritual strength, and create the physical and spiritual reality in which he or she lives. This force is executed by the ability of man to do a transformation of itself and its environment from low energy existence to existence of a higher frequency, in the same way that an alchemist turns lead into gold. In fact, this is the aim of his life and to there leads his personal path. Overweight is a sign that for some reason the person is focused too much on creating himself a physical body, and neglects the creation of other parts of him and his life.

Creation forces that reside in man are executed by the interaction of two fundamental and opposing energies. These energies are known in different names as matter and spirit, prana and shakti, yin and yang, and so on. In this article I shall refer to these energies as light and darkness.

The interaction between these opposing forces has been the factor that created man while being in the womb of its mother, and in the first years of its life. This creating interaction can exist when these two energies are distinct from each other. In this situation the light supplies the creation program and the darkness creates the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual structures needed for its execution. However, with birth the strength of darkness intensifies, due to the primal trauma of disconnection from cosmic feeding, and it is expressed in the constitution of strong pulling (gravitational) forces that absorb light into them.

Is Derek Wahler’s Belly Fat Shrinking Signal a good book?

Fat Shrinking Signal is a 21-day sequential home-based slimming program that uses natural methods to help you get rid of extra bodyweight as well as tone your muscles. The program is a creation of Derek Wahler who claims to be a Certified Turbulence Trainer and a NASM Certified Personal Trainer.

How does Fat Shrinking Signal Work?

This fat shrinking program targets all angles of your body so that you can tone and trim every inch without the boring effects associated with the same everyday workout routines. Its full body burn sequence sends fat burning signals to the brain through unique complete body movements to release trapped fat in the body. Fat Shrinking Signal relies on the effects of leptin to assist in weight loss. Leptin is a body hormone linked to weight loss and feelings of satiety, it lets you know when you are full and to stop eating.

When the brain does not receive leptin signals, it thinks that the body is starving and thus can never tell when you are full. As a result, you end up having too much storage fat as a result of the food you eat. Bearing this in mind, this program works to counter the problem of leptin level plummet and turn your body into a fat-burning system.

What is Included in the Fat Shrinking Signal Package?

The Fat Shrinking Signal program is based on performing certain exercises, in a particular manner, sequence and intensity for various body parts.

The essence of the system is targeted “slimming sequence” that includes four steps:

Body Slimming Burst #1 – The program begins to burn fat immediately with the first step that activates your “Fat Shrinking Signal” that flushes out trapped body fat so that you look and feel slimmer almost immediately. It is asserted that using the Fat Shrinking technique is like performing rapid liposuction, only that without the dangerous side effects or health risks. Therefore, you should be prepared for the psychological shift that comes with it.

Body Shaping Burst #2- This step releases fat-burning signals to your brain so that it instantly releases the trapped fat around the heart, arms, belly and thighs. It features unique body movements that shape the troublesome areas and melt fat away.

This means you are able to lose double, or even triple the fat because of the metabolism activation and become slimmer and more toned without adding extra sets or minutes to your workout

Get Fit and Lose Weight by Using an Elliptical Machine in Your Home

Sep 30 2021 Published by kyu7 under Uncategorized

Why would anyone want to use an Elliptical machine at home?

Well, we know that exercise is very important if we want to have a vital and healthy life. When we don’t exercise regularly, especially as we get older, we are likely to lose muscle tone and gain weight. This is a recipe for disaster.

One of the issues that we have is just going to the gym. Many of us are uncomfortable exercising in front of others, and besides, the gym can be smelly, dirty and overrun with germs. Why go to the gym when you can buy fitness equipment and exercise in the comfort of your home? In the long run exercising at home is probably healthier and less expensive than joining a fancy gym.

With this in mind, let’s look at the reasons you might want to get elliptical equipment for your home gym.

• Do you know the benefits of working out using elliptical machines?

• Did you know the best workouts for losing weight can be done safely using an elliptical at home?

• Did you know you can get a total body workout using elliptical equipment in your home gym?

Let’s discuss the some of the benefits of using this valuable piece of equipment.

Elliptical machines, also known as cross trainers, are stationary workout tools that allow you to work out without pounding your joints. This allows you to workout with minimal risk of injury to your joints. If you already have bad knees, hips, ankles or a bad back you can still workout without further damage to your body.

There are three types of elliptical machines:

• The oldest equipment is designed with a rear drive.

• The next iteration uses a front-drive design.

• The most recent models use a center-drive design.

Each generation of equipment improves the design to give you the greatest potential benefit. The newest center drive design is now considered to be state of the art, and the best equipment to use to get the maximum benefit.

ADVANTAGES OF USING ELLIPTICAL MACHINES/TRAINERS IN YOUR HOME

Elliptical machines used at home give you many benefits. Some of the benefits include:

• Working out indoors and in the comfort of your home. You will never be affected by the weather. This is true if you work out in the elements or if you drive to the gym.

• Elliptical machines cause less impact on your joints.

• Elliptical machines work your arms, shoulders, chest, biceps and triceps. They work your thighs, claves, and glutes. You also get the benefit of aerobic exercise.

• You can vary the intensity of your workout by setting the resistance and incline of the equipment.

• Although elliptical machines have minimal impact on the joints, they are a weight bearing form of exercise, which works your muscles harder, and increases your chances of losing weight

• Some elliptical machines are designed to be very easy to move and save space.

Working out doesn’t only help maintain physical vitality. A healthy body increases our chances of having a healthy mind. Exercising in the peace and comfort of your home is a very good way to maintain your physical and mental health. Using an elliptical machine properly at home should be an integral part of your exercise regimen.

Bodylastics Vs a Gym Membership – A Comparison by a Former YMCA Member

Aug 31 2021 Published by kyu7 under Uncategorized

So you have made up your mind to get into some training, or you have been training and are looking for a less expensive and less time consuming way to train. One of the areas you might explore is the Bodylastics home training system featuring resistance elastic bands. This system was developed by Blake Kessel and first marketed in 1998. Total customers are over 1,200,000.

For the last 4 years, I have been a Michigan wintertime member of the local YMCA and under the supervision of a personal trainer directed system there. My motivation to join was brought about by my being a prostate cancer survivor and recognizing the need to stay in good physical shape to help prevent any return of the cancer. In the summer I leave my exercise to approximately 100 plus rounds of golf. After some dissatisfaction with the time and money associated with the YMCA program, I started looking for some alternatives. Having heard much about the Bodylastics system, I thought I would do a comparison. The following is a summary of that comparison as to effectiveness, cost, and time efficiency.

Is Bodylastics an adequate substitute for free weights and weight machines in a gym atmosphere such as the YMCA?

Each year I start out at the Y with a 30-60 minute session with a personal trainer. She puts together an exercise program that best keeps me in good health ( I am not a muscle builder, but simply want to be in reasonably good shape) These exercises make use of the myriad machines available and generally consist of 3 different machines for the legs, and nine different machines for the back, shoulder, and arms. There is also a small amount of time devoted to free weights. Total time to perform these exercises usually is 20-25 minutes, followed by a cardiovascular routine that consists of fast walking laps on the indoor track for about an hour. In looking at Bodylastics I found at minimum it offered 140 different exercises, many of which duplicated the ones done at the YMCA. In terms of the amount of resistance, the special Bodylastics “quick clip system” allows not only quick changes to different exercises, but also allow adding up to 7 resistance bands to give all the resistance needed.

Even though the Bodylastics system compared favorable from a weight resistance training standpoint, there is one negative…..it does not offer cardiovascular exercise such as the indoor track at the Y. Of course, a substitute is simply walking outside or purchasing a machine for use in the home. In Michigan walking outside is available most of the year with the exception of some exceptionally cold and/or snow filled days. Thus, this may be an area that is going to be limited with just the Bodylastics approach.

Cost:

Bodylastics’ basic unit for beginners of average strength is $49.95, with upgrades to $59.95 for those of above average strength, and $99.82 for exceptionally strong individuals. Now let’s compare this to belonging to a gym, specifically, in my case, to the YMCA. Monthly membership fees are $44/month. This includes weight training and cardiovascular, but also a swimming pool, Jacuzzi, basketball gym, and a roller blade rink. The latter 4 areas I do not use at all.

Travel:

The distance from my home was 6.9 miles, or a round trip of approximately 14 miles. With my MPG of 22, and an average exercise frequency of 5 times per week, and cost of gas at $2.25 per gallon, travel costs were $7.15 per week, or $30.80 per month. For the 6 months each year that I am a member, the cost is $185.00.
The total cost of the YMCA for membership and travel for 6 months that is duplicated each and every year is $449.00 versus the beginning Bodylasts set cost of $49.95, a one time expenditure. Needless to say, this is a significant difference.

Time efficiency:

Bodylastics does not require a daily 20 minute round trip to the YMCA. This trip can be considerably longer in Michigan when the snow flies, or icy roads are encountered. Once at the gym, there is time check in, change into workout clothes, and sometimes having to wait to use a machine.

Probably the most significant time savings occur when out of town. This is when I have to search for the local YMCA, find out how to get there, actually get there, and then pay a guest fee. With the Bodylastics contained in a 3# bag with a door attachment, it can simply be taken to and used at any travel destination.
