Could Water Help You Lose To Weight?

With over 60% of your body made from water by the time you become an adult, there is no disputing that water plays an important role in your development. However, can water influence your weight loss too?


In a recent study it was discovered that drinking plenty of water can help to suppress your appetite and repel false hunger signs that are normally triggered as a result of dehydration.


Alongside helping to flush harmful toxins out of your system and keep you hydrated, water can also encourage natural weight loss.


Simply drink 1-2ounces of water before every meal, and this will leave you feeling full and able to eat less.


According to Roger Clemens from the University of South California, drinking ice water can also aid weight loss. During his research he discovered that by drinking 8 ounces (240gm) of ice water every day, your fat stores will be used to bring the temperature of this water up from 4°C to 37.5°C (body temperature), thus causing increased fat burn.


And in theory this should help you to lose weight ! For instance to bring just 1gm of water to 10°C, your body will need to use 1 calorie. That means to raise 240gm of ice water to 37.5°C; you will need to use 8.04 calories.


Water and weight loss


To experience credible weight loss results from drinking water, experts suggest that you drink at least 8 glasses of water every day. However, for increased results, your weight will also need to be taken into consideration as well.


Just 1 ounce of water best serves 2lbs of your weight, so if you weighed 200lbs and wanted to boost your metabolism, you would need to consume 100 ounces of water every day.


If however, you do not want to rely on water alone to increase your weight loss, the support of a clinically tested supplement such as Proactol can help.


Clinically proven during 6 clinical trials to: bind up to 28% of your dietary fat, suppress your appetite, improve cholesterol and increase energy levels, Proactol has successfully helped thousands of slimmer’s to take charge of their weight loss and lose a steady 1-2lbs a week.

Obesity and Diabetes Are You at Risk?

The Link Between Obesity and Diabetes


Physicians usually refer to diabetes by its full, medical name diabetes mellitus. According to the Merck Manual of Medical Information, 2nd Edition, diabetes mellitus is defined as "a disorder in which blood sugar (glucose) levels are abnormally high because the body does not produce enough insulin." Insulin is a hormone that's released from the pancreas to control the amount of sugar in the blood. 


If the body doesn't produce enough insulin to move sugar into receptive cells, the result is a very high levels of sugar in the blood, and not enough sugar in cells. This state is what produces the symptoms and complications of diabetes mellitus.


There are two types of diabetes:
Type One refers to the juvenile or early onset, insulin-dependent form of diabetes. This is not an obesity-related form of diabetes. People who develop this form do so before age 30; only 10% of all diabetics have type one.


Type Two usually develops between age 30 and age 70. Obesity is the chief risk factor for developing type 2 diabetes, and 80% - 90% of people who have this disease are obese. Obesity causes insulin resistance, so obese diabetics need very large amounts of daily insulin to maintain normal blood sugar levels.


Diabetes mellitus, type 2, causes serious, even fatal, conditions. 


If you're obese and have any of these symptoms, see your health care provider as soon as possible:

  1. Excessive thirst, excessive urination, and excessive appetite.
  2. Blurred vision
  3. Excessive drowsiness and chronic fatigue
  4. Nausea
  5. Decreased endurance during exercise
  6. Rapid, unexplained weight loss
  7. Abdominal pain
  8. Deep, rapid breathing
  9. Breath that smells like nail polish remover - This is a symptom of ketoacidosis, and can result in coma and death within hours if not immediately treated.



By now, it's obvious that diabetes is an extremely dangerous disease. It's also obvious that since obesity can be prevented by proper diet and exercise, diabetes can be prevented among people who have the early-onset type. 


Obesity isn't about how you look in a bathing suit; it's about your life, and how you live it.


Remember to consult your health care provider about establishing a reasonable, healthy weight loss plan! 


If you need help, as most people do, Phen375 can provide that help; reducing hunger cravings and super-charging your metabolism to give you more energy and fat-burning capability will greatly increase your ability to stick with your diet and exercise program. 


Diabetes is a preventable disease!

Do slimming pills work?

Do slimming pills work?

The answer to this age old question is not a simple one. Why? Because it is all a matter of determining the real slimming pills from the fake.

So what can do you do? How can you find this answer?

One sure way is to look at their backing. Now we don’t mean just their customer testimonials. No, we mean everything: their clinical trials, their medical backing and their media coverage.

The media for example would not readily support a slimming pill without believing in the credibility of its weight loss results first. If they did, not only would this open them up to endless letters of complaint if the slimming pill did not work, but also their own position as a reliable source would come under fire.

So you see, unless a newspaper thoroughly believes in the slimming pill themselves, they would never openly advertise a link. Not if there was a small chance it could back-fire on them.

The evidence

Proof of this approach can be seen in the Telegraph’s recent feature on Proactol. Within their article based on slimmer’s ‘top 5 tips for losing weight in 2008’, they voted Proactol as their second choice.

Now considering that the Telegraph is acclaimed for containing the latest in news and scientific information, the fact they have mentioned Proactol numerous times within their article (all in a positive light) is just a further testament to how strongly they believe Proactol is one of the best slimming pills around.

But Proactol’s presence within the media has not just been limited to the Telegraph. Proactol has also been featured in the Daily Mail, the New York Times and Florida Style Magazine. Each of which are considered to also be reliable sources for information.

Saying all this, the media is not the only way to determine whether a slimming pill is real or not – though it does set up a good precedent for making a decision.

There are other equally vital points you need to take into consideration when assessing a slimming pill - their clinical trials and their medical backing.

Something that Proactol can also easily prove.

Medically backed by the Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC, Proactol has undergone 5 successful clinical trials and is clinically proven to help consumers:

• Reduce their fat intake by 28%
• Suppress their appetite
• Decrease their food cravings
• Lower their blood cholesterol
• Cut their calorie intake by 150 calories per main meal.

Add all these facts together and it is easy to see that Proactol is a slimming pill that works.

So whilst it may feel as though most slimming pills don’t work, there are ones out there - such as Proactol – which can offer you real credible weight loss results. You just need to know where to look.

Weight loss surgeries vs. diet pills – which are safer?

Weight loss surgeries vs. diet pills – which are safer?



When it comes to successful weight loss you want to follow a route that is stress free and painless, which is why being able to find a weight loss supplement that can offer you long term weight loss results is so important.

Especially when the other common alternative is surgery.

Look on the web and you will commonly find 4 types of weight loss surgery. Each of them risky and painful.

Vertical Banded Gastroplasty (VBG) – here the stomach is stapled into 2 parts, with the upper part being made smaller to reduce space for food.

Once the food arrives it is passed into the lower pouch through a small opening. To prevent the hole from expanding, a band is put in place to stop it stretching.

RISKS: the band is prone to wearing; the staple line can breakdown and in some cases stomach juices have leaked into the abdomen causing infection and even death.

Laparoscopic Gastric Banding (Lap-Band) – intended only for people who are 100lbs overweight, this device works by placing an inflatable band around the upper part of the stomach.

The band itself can be altered in size by changing the amount of salt there is in the saline solution in the band, but overall this band is intended to be permanent.

RISKS: can lead to nausea, vomiting, heartburn, abdominal pain, band slippage and pouch enlargement.

Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RGB) – during this surgery, the surgeon makes the stomach smaller by stapling it and creating a smaller pouch. This pouch is then attached to the middle past of the small intestine.

The reason they do this is to one, limit how much you eat and two, to reduce the number of nutrients that are absorbed into the small intestine.

RISKS: offers the risk of ‘dumping syndrome’ where food moves too rapidly through the small intestine. Other side effects include – nausea, weakness, sweating, faintness, diarrhoea, infection, leaking, pulmonary embolism, gall stones and nutritional deficiency.

Biliopancreatic Diversion (BPD) – this is a highly risky surgery that is rarely used. Here surgeons remove a large part of the stomach, limiting food and stomach acid production. This small pouch is then connected to the final segment of the small intestine. A common channel is kept to allow bile and pancreatic digestive juices to mix with the food before it enters the intestine.

RISKS: nutritional deficiencies.

As you can see each of these surgeries comes with risks. Risks that are impossible to ignore when there are other natural alternatives available.

Now as we say this there are of course weight loss supplements on the market which can cause similarly unpleasant side effects to these surgeries. To name just a few: Alli, Reductil and Xenical - each of these can cause unpleasant, negative side effects.

Then there is the fact that they can only be used for a limited amount of time. Varying from 3 months to a year, for those seeking long term weight loss results, such dietary pills as these just cannot help.

Yet there is hope.

Natural fat binders such as Proactol™ can offer you an easier route to weight loss without any of the risks of bogus pills or surgery.

100% organic and side effect, Proactol™ is clinically proven to help consumers reduce their dietary fat intake by 28% whilst also suppressing their appetite. The perfect combination for taking control of your weight loss, without ever having to worry about your body. It is risk free.

And compared to most weight loss pills you’ll find online, Proactol™ comes highly recommended as natural weight loss supplement within the media.

To date it has been featured in the Telegraph, the Daily Mail, the New York Times and most recently in bridal magazine YouAndYourWedding where they teamed up with Proactol™ to offer users a free trip to a Champney spa.

So offer your body a natural solution to weight loss, free from all risks.

Weight loss diet pill guarantees – what do they really offer?





You could argue that a guarantee is a guarantee. That it doesn’t matter as long as the weight loss supplement works.

But here is the thing.

Which diet pill would you feel more confident in? The one that can offer you a 180 day money back guarantee (Proactol™) or one that only lasts 2 weeks (Hoodia Gordonii Diet Pills)?

If we’re honest, the one that offers a 180 day money back guarantee looks the most appealing. Why? Because it gives you chance to truly test the effectiveness of the product; to see if it does actually work for you in the long term and not for just a few weeks. Plus you can use it safe in the knowledge that if it doesn’t work you can get a full refund.

A 2 week guarantee on the other hand, screams unreliable.

Yes, you could say the reason it is only 2 weeks is because the manufacturers are so confident in their product. But think about it a moment. How much weight can you really lose in just 2 weeks?

For real long term weight loss that lasts dieticians recommend losing 1-2lbs a week. But if you – like we all do at first – stick to a strict diet and exercise regularly, you could easily lose this amount naturally without the help of a supplement.

The real proof over whether or not a weight loss supplement works becomes apparent during the long term; when it continues to help you to consistently lose weight, even when your confidence ebbs.

Take this scenario.

Proactol™ have recently teams up with UK bridal magazine YouAndYourWedding to offer brides the chance to lose weight and win a free getaway.

On top of their competition offer that gives winners an all inclusive pamper treatment at Champney Spa, Proactol™ are also offering winners a prize of a year’s free supply Proactol™.

Now whilst you could say in this scenario their 180 money back guarantee doesn’t count as it was given away freely, the guarantee does still work in promoting confidence. In proving to customers that it is a great prize to win.

Yes, all brides want to get away from the stresses of their wedding, but even the most toned of us, wants to lose a few lbs before we get married.

And Proactol™ can offer you just that.

A guarantee that their natural herbal supplement will work to help you lose those extra lbs, get in shape and help you to maintain it.

So a guarantee is more than a guarantee.

It is a symbol of confidence that give you the reassurance to lose weight before your wedding; to enter a competition with the hopes of winning a prize as well as help and the satisfaction of knowing you are making a sound investment.
