How I 100-Pound Weight Loss

About two years back there was this program released that promised to change your life in 21 days. that is Zi Xiu Tang Bee Pollen Weight Loss  Maybe you have heard of it, maybe not.At that time I was in a bad place in my life, 200 pounds overweight, depressed, addicted to food, and mad at the world, and all I knew is I needed to do something. The infomercial and people online kept saying, "it's only 21 days," and "anyone can do it." So I did what any desperately overweight woman who has tried everything out there would do. I found a local coach I had know for years and ordered it. Guess what... like every other diet I went all out hard core and I FAILED within the first week and I was so mad because they made it look so easy!

So how did I end up losing 100 pounds if I failed? Well, I decided to strap on my boots and give this a real shot. I started researching diets and foods to avoid while trying to lose weight. I took the 21-day book and really sat down and read it. I educated myself. I started doing 30-minute workouts, 3-6 days a week. I started to use these little containers provided by Zi Xiu Tang, to measure my foods, but not "by the book." I cheated my way through it. I followed my bracket, but if I wanted white rice I had it and stuffed it into my little yellow cup. If I wanted chips, I did the same thing. If I am still hungry at the end of the day I eat another green, and sometimes even a red (veggies and protein). I just try my very hardest to make better choices and learn what the 21-day fix is really teaching people. How to control how much we are eating, what we eat matters, that being active is important, and that if you make better choices you will feel better.

I have never "officially" completed a 21-day challenge from beginning to end. I also am not saying this will be everyone's saving grace, but if you have a substantial amount of weight to lose cheating your way through learning may just be right for you. Not everyone can follow a strict food program. Food is my addiction and I had to learn to live with it. If I had just given up, if I had kept trying to follow the strict rules of a diet instead of listening to my body, I wouldn't be 100 pounds lighter, four months pregnant, and kicking my depression's butt into the ground.

now , I feel very well for myself , thanks Zi Xiu Tang Weight Loss .

10 Ways to Crank Up Your Card

We all like to get more done in less time, right? We shop from our computers to forgo waiting in lines at department stores and microwave our foods to cut down on cooking time. Some of us even take multitasking to new levels by checking our email while watching television and sipping our morning coffee. And it makes sense. After all, what do we all want more of when it comes down to it? Time. Although spending time working out is a great way to beat stress and get healthy, most of us are usually trying to squeeze in workouts during our already hectic schedules. And when you are able to get to the gym or find that 30 minutes for cardio, don't you want to make the most of every minute?

No matter what type of cardio you do, you can burn more calories in the same amount of time with just a few modifications to your current workout.

1. Do cardio first. Over the years, many clients have asked me, "Should I do weights or cardio first?" If you want to up your calorie burn (and who doesn't?), research shows that you should do cardio first. Published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, one study examined how many calories exercisers burned doing one of four workout combinations: running only, strength training only, running followed by strength training, and strength training followed by running. Researchers found that while all exercisers experienced a strong "after burn" (a higher rate of calories burned when at rest after exercise) for the two hours after working out, the strength training and run/strength training groups had the highest exercise after burn of all. So what does this mean? Although it's just one study, the takeaway is that we might burn more calories after working out if we do our cardio first.

2. Try plyometrics. If you consider yourself an intermediate or advanced exerciser and are looking for ways to burn more calories, plyometrics are the way to go. These high-intensity, explosive exercises such as jumping and hopping, get your heart rate up quickly, which equals a higher rate of calories burned. Additionally, these athletic movements really target your fast-twitch muscles, coordination and agility, so you're training your body in an entirely new and challenging way. And challenging workouts almost always equal results—and more calories burned. Because using proper form is essential when doing these advanced high-impact moves, consider learning the ropes first!

3. Use your whole body. Most cardio exercises focus on the lower body (biking, walking, elliptical, stair climbing, etc.), but if you want to burn more calories, one easy tip is to incorporate your upper body. Pump those arms hard and high when running and walking, make sure to grab the elliptical with moving handles, and even consider adding a more full-body exercise to your cardio mix such as the rowing machine. The more muscles you move, the more calories you will burn!

4. Get intense. If you're serious about wanting to burn more calories, then it's time to up the intensity. Bump up your incline and resistance if you're on a piece of gym equipment, or walk a hillier route than usual if you exercise outdoors. To increase the burn, you need to get out of your cardio comfort zone. And when you do, the benefits can be big. In a study published in the Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports Medicine in 2002, researchers found that intense exercise resulted in the greatest fat burn (compared to light intensity exercise and no exercise at all) during the hours following a workout—and that fat burn continued for 11 hours.

5. Listen to fast music. If you seem to have trouble pumping yourself up for a workout, try popping in those earbuds! In a small study by the Research Institute for Sport and Exercise Sciences, scientists found that when male college students pedaled stationary bicycles while listening to fast popular music, the subjects pedaled faster and elevated their heart rates more. The students even perceived their workouts to be less intense than they actually were. And when the music slowed down? The opposite happened. So listen to music you love and get your cardio on!

6. Use proper form. Do you hold on to the handles when you run on the treadmill? Maybe you lean on the handlebars during spinning class or hunch over while walking on the Stairmaster. If you use these machines, you need to use proper form in order to burn more calories. As a general rule, keep your arms moving freely and naturally, keep your abs in, your weight centered over your hips, and your shoulders down and back. Not only does proper form keep you from getting injured, it also ups your calorie burn since your core is engaged. Bonus!

7. Speed up. The simplest advice of all for upping your calorie burn? Increase your pace even if it's just a little bit. The tortoise may have won the race, but the hare burned more calories!

8. Add some intervals. By varying your intensity through different intervals (think one minute running then two minutes walking), you can actually improve your fitness more quickly than by steady state cardio, and you can burn more calories. The bonus? Time seems to fly when you add interval training!

9. Focus. We talk a lot about the importance of the mind-body connection and fitness. Although cardio isn't as Zen-like as yoga, cardio can still benefit from a strong sense of awareness. The next time you do cardio, focus on the movements and breathing while squeezing those muscles. By engaging your mind, you can actually better engage your muscles, which allows you to complete the exercise more easily and still burn more calories!

10. Don't work too hard. This might sound counter-intuitive but hear me out. We all know how important intensity is to any workout plan, but also think about how your workout affects the rest of your day. If you spend an hour at the gym sprinting and doing lunges, you might burn 600 calories in a short amount of time, but if that intense workout completely wipes you out for the rest of the day, the extra calorie burn might not be worth it. Be honest with yourself and definitely push yourself, but not so hard that it gets in the way of other daily activities. After all, the goal is to improve your quality of life. 

That abviously can help you lose weight , but if you want to lose weight more quickly , Bee Pollen Diet Pills will be a good choice for you !

What Made Me Decide To Lose Weight

Before: 340
After: 168
The Lifestyle
Between 2012 and 2013, my dad, grandma, and grandpa passed away. Obviously, this was a huge stress on my family, and I took on more responsibility than I had my whole life.
Whenever I was sad or overwhelmed, which was a lot that year, I would eat way beyond the point of feeling full. I did it to make myself feel better; it was totally a coping mechanism. Eating fatty, delicious foods made me happy, and I didn’t care about the consequences.
Before my family went through that tragic time, I weighed somewhere around 270 pounds. That was probably a result of not working out and eating fast food or dorm food, like macaroni and cheese and pizza. It didn’t help that my boyfriend of three years also loved to eat.  Our relationship to each other was about as unhealthy as our relationship with food. We relied on each other for everything and didn’t really have our own social groups or lives. Since I ate to deal with the loss of so many of my family members and dated someone who never saw a problem with that, I put on 50 pounds over six months.
Around the time of my grandma’s death, I also found out that my boyfriend had cheated on me. I realized that way too much of my life depended on him. I looked at myself in the mirror and was upset that I was overweight, alone, and so unhappy with myself.  I thought, “Okay, if I don’t love myself right now, how am I going to find a guy who will?” At the time, I weighed 320 pounds.
The Change
I randomly came across an website http://www.zxtofficial.org . I click on the link , look at the products on the website , I know this is the saviour of mine and I want to try thier products , and I decided to lose weight success .
I take Bee Pollen Weight Loss Pills  about three months and lose weight successfully .and I want to share my story with you .

Noelia Blogged Her Way Lost 43 Pounds

What was the turning point that prompted you to lose weight?
During the fall of 2013, I was mentally struggling to feel good about myself – from my appearance to my academic abilities – and I wasn’t exercising or watching what I was eating. By the end of 2013, I was the heaviest I’d ever been, at 202 pounds, and the weakest I’d ever been in terms of muscle. I decided with the start of a new year would come a new me, mentally and physically, and made it my New Year’s resolution to drop at least 30 pounds.
When did you start trying to lose weight?
I began my fitness journey on January 13, 2014, when I joined a transformation challenge on zxtofficial.org.
How did you get started?
I started weightlifting about five times a week with some guidance from various articles and programs as a part of the challenge. I stopped eating fast food and started preparing healthier meals ahead of time. I also started blogging about my journey to physical fitness and mental health on my website, vowing to be transparent about the ups and downs of the whole process. It helped me feel extra accountable for my actions.
What was your biggest challenge?
My biggest challenge was realizing that progress, no matter how slow or small, was still progress and celebrating myself accordingly.
Were there any times when you wanted to quit or give up? How did you stay motivated?
The best thing I could’ve done for myself was blog about my journey because every time I wanted to give up, I simply wrote about it. I wrote about how hard it was, how crappy I felt, how I hadn’t been in the gym for weeks, how I hadn’t been eating well, how I was mentally struggling to feel good about myself and so on. I’d publish my posts on social media and people would message me saying how grateful they were for my honesty, and how they could relate and felt inspired. Their likes, comments, and messages motivated and inspired me to continue my journey.
If you reached a weight loss plateau, how did you break out of the rut?
To be honest, I tried not to focus on the number on the scale too much. If in the gym I’m getting stronger and lifting more weight and my clothes are fitting better, that number on the scale could even go up a little and it wouldn’t be a bad thing. Whenever my fat loss hit a plateau, I’d incorporate some HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training).
What’s your daily diet look like?
What I love about my daily diet is that it doesn’t look that similar on a daily basis because I eat according to IIFYM (If It Fits Your Macros) or flexible dieting. My current macros are about 50 grams of fat, 125 grams of protein, and 150 grams of carbs. I track whatever I eat on the Lose It app and by the end of the day I try to hit these numbers with the foods I have eaten. I like incorporating protein into my breakfast, lunch, and dinner in the form of egg substitutes, honey smoked turkey slices, grilled chicken, and whey protein.
What’s your favorite healthy snack and meal?
This may sound strange, but I like mixing my protein powder with ½ cup of low-fat ice cream. It always fits my macros and tastes delicious.
How has losing weight changed your life?
It’s definitely been a mental journey as much as it’s been a physical one. I’ve learned that life isn’t guaranteed and no matter what size you are, you truly have to love yourself no matter how you look. I may have lost weight, but my legs are still big. I used to hate having big legs and would wish for them to be skinny. Now, I love that they’re big and strong! I’ve learned to embrace my build and work to make the body that I have healthy and strong. Through blogging about my journey, I’ve also been able to share my experience with many others who have in turn shared their struggles and gratitude with me. I have no words for how much these people have impacted my life and made me want to keep doing what I’m doing and keep on writing.
Do you have any advice for those trying to lose weight?
It’s okay to have bad days and to not be perfect. It’s okay for the progress to be slow. The most important thing you can do is never give up. I know that sounds incredibly cliché, but it’s true. Even when I had bad days or weeks and I was steering off track, I never thought, “This is it. I give up. It’s over.” Instead, I thought, “This is a bump. Once it’s over, I’m back on track.” If it helps to tell friends or family that you’re on a fitness journey for accountability purposes then do it! That’s how my blog started and it’s helped me stay on track. But trust me, if you want to change your life, your mind, and your health for the better, you can definitely do it!

Pamela Kicked the Extra 113 Pounds

What was the turning point that prompted you to lose weight? One day, at the age of 41, I walked past a mirror and thought, “I do not recognize myself anymore.” My healthy and happy self was trapped inside of a body that I wanted out of.
When did you start trying to lose weight? The first time I remember trying to lose weight was in junior high. I was able to slim down by drinking weight-loss shakes or skipping meals. However, I soon gained the weight back plus more – by my mid-twenties, I was up to 260 pounds. I would try to lose 10 pounds for an event by using fad diets (lemonade cleanse, cabbage soup, or no-carb diets), but I would always gain the weight back right after the event. In August 2011, I decided to try again and not give up this time. I realized that losing and maintaining weight is a lifestyle change, not just a temporary diet.

How did you get started? I decided to not go on another fad diet and instead educated myself on proper nutrition. I also decided that instead of staying in the office on my lunch break, I would get up and take a nice walk. At first, I could only walk for a block or two before feeling out of breath. By April 2013, I completed a 5k walk for autism!
What was your biggest challenge? Portion control. In the past I would eat until I was really full and didn’t pay attention to how many calories I was consuming. Learning proper portion control and keeping a list of how many calories I was eating each day played a big part in my weight loss.
Were there any times when you wanted to quit or give up? How did you stay motivated? I wanted to give up almost every day for the first month or two! My sugar cravings were pretty hard to overcome at the beginning. Every day I would have sugar withdrawals. At first I didn’t know what to do; I would have a piece of hard candy to help. But I quickly learned that a healthy snack like an apple with a small amount of peanut butter worked perfect. When I wanted to give up, I thought about how many times I had given up in the past and knew that I did not want to give up again.
If you reached a weight loss plateau, how did you break out of the rut? I would take longer walks or change my calorie intake. If I adjusted my calorie intake, I would make sure I did not go below the amount recommended for my height and current weight.
What’s your current exercise routine? I enjoy walking and jogging. I continue to walk on my lunch break or after work. On weekends I walk and jog. I would love to start taking Zumba classes.
What’s your daily diet look like? I love a high-protein breakfast (egg whites and lean meat) and a granola bar for my morning snack. For lunch I usually have a salad or a hearty soup. Greek yogurt and fruit is my favorite afternoon snack. Lean meat and veggies with a small amount of steamed rice or a baked potato is always a nice and easy dinner. I also make over my favorite recipes into healthier ones that I can cook at home.
What’s your favorite healthy snack and meal? My favorite snack is a KIND bar, and I love Cajun food; my family is from Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
How has losing weight changed your life? It changed everything – from being able to breathe better to feeling better about myself. Because of my unhealthy weight and poor eating habits, I was placed on blood-pressure and heart-rate medication. As I lost the weight, the medicine was decreased and as of today, I’m off both medicines!
Do you have any advice for those trying to lose weight? Yes! It does not matter how many times you have failed before, you only have to be successful once. Maintaining, however, is something you have to do for a lifetime – but success and happiness are much sweeter than any cupcake!

Maya used Bee Pollen For Weight Loss Lost 35 Pounds

When did you become unhappy with your weight?
I became unhappy with my weight when I realized that I didn't feel healthy, I was 2 pounds away from my highest pregnancy weight and I had a 10 pound baby! I could not fit into my cute clothes anymore. I was in a size 16 top and 14 pants and could wear clothes in the plus size stores (I used to wear petites). I was having chest pains and I was frequently tired. I also became winded after walking upstairs.
weight loss success stories What made you decide to lose weight?
My doctor told me that I was obese because my BMI was over a 32. I was also diagnosed with high cholesterol and diabetes, and she wanted me to take medication. I told her I wanted to try it naturally and she was skeptical about my ability to change my lifestyle. I was DONE.
weight loss success stories What were the most important changes you made to lose weight?
I counted calories and started eating MUCH cleaner incorporating fiber, fruits, veggies, lean proteins and more water into my diet. I also cut out fried foods, red meat, pork, candy, cookies, brownies and anything with excessive amounts of sugar, fat or sodium. I also started exercising 3-5 days per week.
weight loss success stories What was most challenging about losing weight?
The hardest thing for me has been resisting temptation from the foods and drinks I used to enjoy SO MUCH and control my portions. I have researched alternatives to them and it has worked pretty well! I thank my faith in God for helping me be strong.
weight loss success stories How long did it take you to start to see results?
It took about 3 months before I saw obvious changes in my body, although other people could tell before that point.
weight loss success stories How long did it take for you to reach your current weight?
8 months.

Mara Lost 90 Pounds Sheds the Baby Weight

What was the turning point that prompted you to lose weight? I had just had my daughter and gained 40 pounds during the pregnancy. I was desperate to go back to work in my pre-baby clothes. I didn’t give myself any outs or excuses. I was determined!

When did you start trying to lose weight? Technically, when I was eight years old. I have a long history of struggling with my weight. But the most recent time — when I really made a permanent lifestyle change — began three years ago in January 2012.

How did you get started? I hadn’t been cleared for exercise by my doctor, so I just started by cleaning up my diet. I eliminated all of my trigger foods, including flour, dairy, candy, and wine. It was excruciating! But I was committed to doing it for 40 days and I made it through. After that, my habits and tastes had changed, so I kept going. Cleaning up my diet was the single biggest factor in my change to a healthy lifestyle. I lost 50 pounds before I started exercising!

What was your biggest challenge? Staying away from my trigger foods. Those things are like a drug for me and kicking the habit was like going through detox.

Were there any times when you wanted to quit or give up? How did you stay motivated? Absolutely. I wanted to give up on many occasions. And there were times I had big setbacks. Two things kept me going. One was my faith. I prayed a lot and I knew that God wanted me to be healthier. The other thing was knowing that I’d never reach my goals if I gave up. I just had to keep going. Persistence is victory.

If you reached a weight loss plateau, how did you break out of the rut? I reached a major plateau and couldn’t shake the last four pounds before reaching my goal. I stayed there for about a year. A year! I broke through by upping my cardio big time, while really refining my diet. I realized I’d gotten sloppy and lazy on a lot of things.

What’s your current exercise routine? I work out every single day; sometimes twice a day. I love it. It’s the most fun I have all day. I do SoulCycle, Barry’s Bootcamp, Yoga, and barre classes. I need classes; if I work out on my own I don’t get much done.

What’s your daily diet look like? Before I exercise I have a spoonful of peanut butter and half a banana.

Immediately afterwards I eat the other half of the banana. About an hour later – once I’ve showered and dressed – I eat a big breakfast: egg whites, chicken sausage, sweet potato, and oatmeal. Lunch and dinner are about the same, usually a piece of fish or chicken, veggies, and some brown rice or quinoa. If I need a snack, I’ll have some nuts or fruit.

What’s your favorite healthy snack and meal? Oatmeal with caramelized bananas (I sauté them in a non-stick pan) with pecans and agave. Yum! My favorite meal is roasted chicken with broccoli and mashed sweet potato.

How has losing weight changed your life? It has changed everything, from the amount of energy I have, to how I feel after I eat, to how I cope with stress. If you would’ve asked me before I lost the weight, I would have said that wearing a size 6 was going to be the best part. But now, I realize it’s so much bigger and better than that.

Do you have any advice for those trying to lose weight? Set small goals. Don’t try to lose 50 pounds. Start with five. The journey of 1,000 miles begins with a single step.

Erica Drops Lost 157 Pounds Body Weight in a Year

What was the turning point that prompted you to lose weight?

My son, who was around 2 at the time, asked me to play on the floor with him. I was sitting on the couch and the mere thought of getting up, laying down on the floor, and having to pick up the toys was so exhausting that I told him no. That was terrifying. I went to weigh myself and saw 322 pounds on the scale. My heart sank.



When did you start trying to lose weight?

I have been heavy since middle school. I had always tried to lose weight. However, once I got off the scale that day, I felt a switch turn. The next day I was full-blown ready to lose the weight! I actually lost my first 122 pounds in the first 13 months. I’ve learned to be patient about the rest of the weight loss. I’ve toned and built muscle the remainder of my journey. I’m still going!

How did you get started?

I just did it. Since I had always been trying to lose weight, I remembered how exhausting and overwhelming it was trying to find the perfect diet plan or weight loss trick. This time, I stuck with the basics. Less calories in, more calories out. I downloaded the MyFitnessPal app on my phone and started there.

What was your biggest challenge?

I am a binge eater – I still am. I have moments that are triggers for me; they make me want to eat everything in the kitchen, including the cabinets. I have eaten a box of pop tarts, cereal, and a whole package of cookies in one binge before.

Were there times you wanted to quit or give up? How did you stay motivated?

I think if you don’t have those moments your journey isn’t honest. I have those moments monthly. I tracked and shared all of my weight loss on Instagram, which helped keep me motivated. But once, I found a website where people talk about famous bloggers – the things they said about me and my family, how I talk, and how I dress were so hurtful. I wanted to stop sharing my story. I felt like if these people were that hurtful, it wasn’t worth it. But I snapped out of it. One phrase will always stick with me: “If they don’t know you personally, don’t take it personally.”

If you reached a weight loss plateau, how did you break out of the rut?

You always have to switch up your workout routines. You don’t want your body ever getting used to something.

What’s your current exercise routine?

I like to make my workouts fun by keeping them simple. I don’t have a routine, and I think that’s why I’ve been successful. My workouts can be anything from 15 sets of HIIT to 60 minutes of cardio to 90 minutes of a leg workout and some ab exercises. I do make sure I sweat and spend at least 60 minutes in the gym. I’m addicted to sweat. Once I see those driblets rolling, I almost challenge myself to be a pool by the time I’m done.

What’s your daily diet look like?

I am a creature of habit. Breakfast is always five egg whites and a wheat English muffin. Two hours later, it’s a non-fat yogurt. Lunch is typically 4 ounces of a lean meat, 1/2 cup of a carb, and lots of veggies. My mid-afternoon snack is a lean meat and some veggies, sugar-free Jello, or 100-calorie popcorn. I don’t deprive myself; I just practice moderation. Dinner is typically the same as lunch, and I have a protein shake after my workouts.

How has losing weight changed your life?

Simple: It’s now officially my life. Before, I let the weight define me and my boundaries. Now, I don’t. I make the rules. I’ve been lucky enough to be able to help people. Some even say I inspire them, which still blows my mind to this day. The fact that I can go to sleep happy with who I am and know that someone saw my transformation pictures and was inspired – that’s enough for me!

Do you have any advice for those trying to lose weight?

Yes! Stop making losing weight or being healthy such a chore! We are moms, wives, daughters – we have enough chores in these roles. We don’t need to make what we do for ourselves a chore. Make this fun. It’s your time! Learn to make the gym your happy place: Buy a new workout tank; download some new jams; make friends there and think of them as family.

Amanda Lost 70 Pounds with weight-loss journey

What was the turning point that prompted you to lose weight?

My senior year of college, I became engaged and was so excited to go shopping for a wedding dress! That is, until I actually got to the store. The boutiques turned me away because they didn’t carry plus-size dresses. I couldn’t try anything on. My weight had destroyed what was supposed to be one of the happiest days of my life. It made me open my eyes and realize that I needed to do something to make a change. I went to Target, bought a few Jillian Michaels DVDs, and embarked on a healthy lifestyle.

When did you start trying to lose weight?

In June 2014, I started working out five times a week. I was a bit nervous to start – especially after my first couple of workouts. I had to take breaks often, and I worried that I would never make it through a whole workout. But once I began to notice that I was losing weight, I knew I could keep it up!

A couple of months later, I joined zxtofficial.org for more guidance on my weight-loss journey and advice on how to start eating properly. I began cooking healthy recipes from the site, tracking my foods, and consistently working out.


Were there times when you wanted to quit or give up? How did you stay motivated?

Whenever I felt like I was falling off the bandwagon, I would read to zxtofficial.org weekly podcast to motivate myself.

I work out at least five times a week, but I often mix it up to keep things interesting. Sometimes I’ll do a Jillian circuit workout or one of her DVDs. On other days, I’ll go for a jog with my dog or hit a yoga class. I enjoy the diversity, and trying out new forms of exercise has been fun!


What’s your daily diet look like?

For breakfast, I’ll usually have eggs with veggies and some fruit on the side. I bring my lunch to work, and I typically take a salad with avocado, chicken or turkey, and brown rice. As for snacks, I’ll usually have fruit with almond butter or veggies with hummus. Dinner varies, but it’s usually fish or chicken with some sort of veggie (broccoli, asparagus, green beans, Brussels sprouts) and a grain (brown rice or quinoa).

My favorite snack is an apple with almond butter, and breakfast burritos are my favorite healthy meal!

For pre-menopausal women interested in losing weight

The sleep-hormone/weight gain dynamic is more complex for women than men due to monthly hormonal shifts associated with menstruation. A poll from the National Sleep Foundation found that more than 70 percent of menstruating women experience disturbed sleep. 

The female hormones estrogen and progesterone both have crucial functions in relation to sleep and weight loss. Estrogen increases REM sleep while progesterone, a sleep-promoting hormone, is also known for increasing appetite. The combination of the hormonal fluctuation affects sleep, appetite, and energy levels during each phase of a woman’s menstrual cycle.


For pre-menopausal women interested in losing weight, here are some simple strategies to improve your sleep and quality of life:

Drink enough water - Drinking more fluids will help the body flush out excess sodium which may reduce bloating and discomfort.

Take calcium supplements - Research has shown that a 1200 milligram daily calcium supplement can reduce PMS symptoms by 50 percent.

Take magnesium supplements - Magnesium increases the body’s production of serotonin, a calming hormone. In combination with calcium, magnesium is a muscle relaxant which can soothe cramps and other physical aches and pains.

That said, the study followed up on a body of research conducted over the last few years that ties quality and quantity of sleep to weight loss and better weight control. For example, a randomized trial published in the journal Obesity last year found that among overweight and obese women ages 35 to 55 who were engaged in a weight loss program, getting an adequate amount of good quality sleep increased the chance of weight loss success by 33 percent.

While  researchers don’t know exactly how sleep schedules affect body mass and fat, other studies have shown that sleep has an effect on physical activity, appetite, and the hormones that control appetite, metabolism, and the cues that tell us we’re full. According to studies skimping on sleep boosts production of ghrelin, the hormone that controls food cravings, and decreases production of leptin, the hormone that signals satiety and helps prevent over-eating.
