INSOMNIA

I saw it last night ( for the second time). Very good, IMDB.COM has a 7.3/10 in evaluation, I would say that this grade is ok. Al Pacino is the only I liked ( always)  because the story didn't have originality.

Separate Lies -Movie Trailer

Tonight 23 pm, ANT1 TV CHANNEL Although IMDB.COM gives a 6.5 for evaluation, I will watch this film tonight because I like Tom Wilkinson ( I saw him in  the movie "A good woman" and he was excellent).



Very hungry people eat more

Image
As a matter of fact cooking needs time. If the chef in our home is not the quicker in the world and you feel your hunger growing and growing,  making you a lion that needs meat and blood, know that if your hunger becomes wilder than the lion's you will eat much more, in no time rhythm, and with less resistance to say "no" to prohibited dishes and drinks. This means that it would be preferable to eat sth like a cup of cottage cheese
( 200 gr, 170 kcal, 4 gr fat in total and 25 gr of protein = protein makes you feel full ) and in this way go to the table with a hunger similar to the one of Scarlett O' Hara ( in "Gone with the Wind" novel). You will eat less, more slowly, you will be calm to avoid non appopriate dishes, etc.
If you don't have the access to cottage cheese ( my fridge is full), then you should have protein bars in your bag. What is a protein bar? An expensive sweet with a lot of protein, low fat and low calories. It makes you feel full and…

How many thermogenetic supplements should I receive?

Image
Don't receive many thermogenetic supplements, because the organism cannot produce more calories because you receive more than 2 thermogenetic products.
If you are a sports man/woman choose carnitine or CLA.

If you are not having intense sports activities then prefer green tea and ginseng. It will suit you. However, receiving all the above is not at all wise choise.

Especially for persons who are not athletic carnitine might not help at all. CLA will help, but not so much as it does in sports people.

If you want to enhance the results of your efforts for eliminating your extra fatty tissue, add some pills of free amino acids in the morning ( empty stomach), after the gym workout ( empty stomach) and before meals.
Watch out! If your calories are too many ( due to candies and fatty meals) amino acid pills will make you more fat than you are now!

How to reduce post-gym-hyperphagia

Many people struggle in gyms and when they go home they eat 4-5 times on their normal serving (according to their age, kilos and frame), thus making a disaster on their whole fitness schedule. My personal advice to them, for reducing the crises of after gym hyperphagia is the following:

1. Drink water before starting the gym, and during the gym workout. Drink at least 500ml per hour.

2. Eat bread + milk, or bread + low fat cheese 1 hour before gym. Do not eat large meals , do not go to the gym with an empty stomach.

3. If you feel tired or hypotonic during your custom training schedule and you are not ill drink some water or glucose + mineral drink, or even 1-2 sugar free candies ( preferably glucose based).

4. Don't exagerate in your workouts. Some days we need to have a shorter or less intense program.

5.  As soon as you finish with your workout have 2-3 pills of free form of amino acids. It is the best time to have those supplements. Little muscle cell injuries will recover rap…

About Green Tea and Weight Loss - The No-Nonsense Truth

Image
One pound of fat (0.45 kilograms) is equivalent to approximately 3500 calories. Whether using green tea for weight loss or any other method, in order to lose one pound of fat over the period of a week, a person must maintain a calorie deficit of 3500 below their normal "set point", that "set point" being the amount of calories consumed in one's diet where a person neither loses nor gains fat. This calorie deficit can come through the modification of diet, through exercise, or a through a combination of both. In the case of a pound per week weight loss, that works out to a needed calorie deficit of 500 calories per day. Research by Japanese and other researchers suggest that if the average person were to drink five cups of green tea a day, they would burn an extra 70 to 80 extra calories through an effect known as thermogenesis - the process of heat production in organisms. While much of the thermogenesis effect in green tea is derived from caffei…

Panhellenic Congress for Alzheimers Disease- Finished today successfully

Image
I presented today the "Role of dietiting and psysical exercise in chronic stress and comorbid disorders in elderly". I was very happy to have more than 10 people asking and commenting after the presentation, which was important for me, since one presentation should always be inspiring ! The congress was very well organised this year ( as previous years ) , international contribution was strong and the Meeting Abstracts were published in a Supplement of  Archives:The International Journal of Medicine, Volume 4, Supplement 1. Many thanks to the Organisers, for this wonderful congress! The volume of the Congress Proceedings will help us study all the sessions we lost ( there were many simultaneous sessions so it was impossible to attend all the sessions).

Cheese Lovers have "better kilos" when they are obese ( and when they are not )

Image
To be a cheese lover is a very familiar thing to me because I have been one since I remember myself eating. I like every kind of cheese, feta, yellow cheese, cottage cheese, everything. The sandwich "cheese-and-bread" is my loved one. Salads is not my style of eating ( great fault but I corrected it recently even by salad pills ). When I was 95 kilos, I looked like 85 kilos because my muscular system was quite developed. Which means my fat tissue was not so developed as it is in "non-cheese eaters". When you start with a body composition with fat lower than 45% then things are easier in losing weight.
Also, now you can find cheese with low fat as cottage cheese with 2% fat only ( eg. dirollo cottage cheese, and linessa from lidl) and yellow cheese with 5% fat only ( arla delite) so you can go on with cheese eating! without being afraid of calories any more.
On the contrary people who eat cookies alone, fried potatoes, too much bread ( without proteins like milk, yo…

Eat in small plate and drink from a large bottle

Image
According to the psychology of eating, the plate should be small in order to eat less, and if you need to drink more then prefer the 1.5 lt bottle and not the small bottles ( because then you will drink less). Also, drink the best water you can afford ( water is very important for weight loss so spending in water is worthwhile).

What about Alpha Lipoic Acid (ALA) and its use in Bodybuilding?

Image
Typical bodybuilders have at least heard something about alpha lipoic acid, also commonly referred to as ALA, yet many do not know the variety of benefits one can obtain from supplementing with ALA. Alpha Lipoic Acid is known by a variety of names including thioctic acid, 1, 2-dithiolane-3-pentanoic acid, 1, 2-dithiolane-3 valeric acid, and 6, 8-thioctic acid. As a sulfur compound,it comprises caprylic acid, a medium chain fatty acid, with two sulfur atoms stuck on the ends and it is capable of binding and inactivating heavy metals like mercury, cadmium, excess iron and excess copper.

Background Information

Scientists first discovered the importance of ALA in the 1950s, and recognized it as an antioxidant in 1988 Alpha Lipoic Acid is a sulfurous fatty acid that would have been classified as a vitamin except for the fact that it can be synthesized within the human body. Alpha lipoic acid functions as a co-factor for energy production as lipomide and is also called l…

Thermogenic Supplements Guide - Use for bodybuilding?

Image
Too many people, in their desperation for a fast solution, turn to thermogenic supplements when more knowledge of the subject of what constitutes a healthy level of body fat, how to structure a diet one can live with every day, how to exercise properly and how to learn patience would get them much farther without the unpleasant or dangerous side effects of speed. Folks who wouldn’t dream of taking street drugs or other types of uppers don’t think twice about popping “stims” to get a leg up on fat loss.
Having been involved in the bodybuilding world for a long while, I’m not going to tell you that thermogenics have no place. They do, but should only be used on a temporary basis for specific purposes. If you’re a bodybuilder getting ready to compete, have all your other ducks in a row and you need to get your body fat levels down below average for a very short term, then a thermogenic may be a good choice. If you’re an athlete who must make a certain weight class, you have…

Boost your workouts by learning to eat at the best times- How and when to eat to get the ultimate food fuel!

Image
Jillian Michaels has made it her life's work to help people lose weight and keep it off! Jillian is right here, on board with the online program, offering her best secrets on what it takes to kick the fat habit and finally get fit. The sample Q&A below is just one of the many you can access if you join Jillian's online team.
When to EatQ: Is it better to eat a meal before or after a workout? Why?
JILLIAN SAYS:
Both. Here's what I like to do: have my breakfast at 9 a.m., work out from 10:30 to 12, and eat by 1 p.m. Here's why: Back in the old days, people thought they should train on an empty stomach in order to burn more fat, but that has turned out to be FALSE. In fact, your body needs some glucose (blood sugar) for fuel in addition to what it can use from fat stores when you're working out. If you don't have any blood sugar available, your body will eat the muscles' glycogen, or stored glucose. Low blood sugar will also make you tired and s…
