Green Tea For Weight Loss & Lower Cholesterol

By Marcus Stout

High cholesterol is one of the leading precursors to heart disease. And, research has shown that our diet and lifestyle, combined with our genetics determines whether we have healthy or unhealthy cholesterol levels. To keep your cholesterol levels in check and prevent heart disease, there are several measures you can take.

The first is diet. Cholesterol in food comes from animal products. Meat, eggs and dairy products are all culprits. Reduce the amount of red meat you consume, replacing it with fish or chicken. Use low fat dairy products and reduce the number of egg yolks you eat, or use egg substitutes. Increase the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet and eat whole grains rather than refined products like white flour.

The second is exercise. Be certain to get at least 30 minutes of exercise most days of the week. This will help you shed pounds if you need to, and will also help lower your serum cholesterol. Walking is a very good way to help get your daily dose of exercise.

By Angelo Johnson

Its 8:30 p.m. and you are sitting in front of the television snacking on handful after handful of potato chips. You finished eating dinner nearly two hours ago and while you’re not exactly hungry, those potato chips are right there and they look so good.

Unfortunately, this is a common scenario in the lives’ of many Americans today. Food cravings are hard to resist and can often wreak havoc on your diet regimen. In the past, willpower was the only tactic employed to help fight the temptation to indulge in fattening snacks and high cholesterol munchies. Recently, however, new discoveries have uncovered a plant that is said to help reduce cravings and suppress your appetite so you won’t be enticed to “cheat” on your diet ever again.

This miraculous plant is called Hoodia Gordonii, a cactus-like plant from southern Africa, used by the San tribe of the Kalahari Desert for centuries to help ward off hunger during long hunting expeditions. The members of the tribe would suck on this plant, therefore able to feel full enough to endure days without food. While we wouldn’t desire you to go even a day without eating, Hoodia Gordonii products are useful for regulating food intake and fighting off cravings. They can help you feel fuller after a small meal and take your mind off of that ice cream in the freezer.
