Healthy foods to bolster your weight management program


More Americans than ever before are struggling with the consequences of excess body fat, which has led health experts to spur a nation-wide endeavor to promote weight loss nationwide. These efforts focus on overweight individuals employing a variety of different weight management strategies ranging from daily fitness programs to dietary restrictions. While many of these approaches offer a pathway to a healthier lifestyle, studies indicate that specific methods may be more effective than others in the battle to curb weight gain.

Study: Men lose weight faster than women


Dropping excess body fat can be quite a struggle for many Americans. The process usually takes months of hard work and often involves a daily exercise regimen and some strict dietary restrictions. That is why many people in the U.S. choose to tackle their weight management with a partner or significant other who can provide the moral support necessary to see the endeavor through to the end goal - a slimmer, fitter body image. Unfortunately, we are all made differently, and some women might have noticed that their man seems to get better results in less time.

Best methods to improve direct selling strategies


In the modern world, everyone wants everything faster, better and easier. Innovations like the Internet have created a society centered around speed and efficiency, which has transformed the attitude of much of the world's populace. The U.S. economy that was once driven by mini-malls and big-block retailers is beginning to shift its focus to a more overarching direct selling strategy that eliminates the need for brick-and-mortar vendors. Now, immediate gratification is what folks are searching for, and direct selling strategies ensure that they get what they want or need in record time. This is especially true in the vitamin and supplement sector, where weight loss fads, trendy diets and hot new nutrition products change rapidly. Everyone needs the latest and greatest, so you better be ready to provide!

Study: Days of the week may play a role in weight fluctuations


The path toward a slimmer and healthier body image can be a difficult road to navigate for many overweight Americans. Trendy diets, fitness programs and shapewear are all popular choices to minimize the unflattering shape of excess body fat, but many find that the results of these methods vary considerably from person to person. While everyone's body is unique in its own right, you may be surprised to learn that weight fluctuations could be dependent on outside environmental factors, such as the days of the week, as well as personal lifestyle changes.

Americans still struggling with weight management issues


Carrying around an excessive amount of body fat can lead to a variety of negative consequences, which is why many health experts in the U.S. are urging more of the populace to become proactive in the fight against weight gain. Still, a large percentage has yet to get the message. According to the results of a recent study conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than one-third of Americans today are overweight. That figure has not dropped in more than a decade, which leaves researchers puzzled as to why our country's collective weight loss efforts have stalled during the past decade.
