Starvation as a method of losing weight is probably the only 'diet plan' that has consistently been popular since ages.

So what does make people resort to starvation as a form of weight loss?

alt Trim down club dietKathy, one of the coaches on the trim down club tell us that 1/4th of their members have tried starving before joining the trim down club. They do it because there is a common thinking that if you starve, your body will "burn" your fat to produce energy.

This is one of the biggest myths in the diet world, and something we strictly oppose in the trim down club.

Why then people really do it?

You probably know the answer to that.

What tricks you is your mentality . The moment we come across phrases such as 'solutions to lose weight quickly', 'lose weight in 20 days', our mind triggers images of the future - you see yourself following the diet!

Let's explore the idea of starvation as a form of weight loss with its pros, cons and side effects.

Pros of Starving to Lose Weight

As horrendous as it may sound, starvation as a form of losing weight may have a pro or two to its credit. And they are unethical.

Saving money:

You may actually save a few bucks if you starve yourself and store the food you have at home for future usage. It sounds about right. No?

It is a quick solution:

Starving is a quick solution to weight loss. After all, who has the time in the world to exercise and follow the right meal plan?

Cons of Starving to Lose Weight

The cons of starvation definitely beat it's 'pros' in all aspects. As a matter of fact, any diet that promotes starvation as a way of weight loss is giving you the wrong directions. It may seem like a short term solution, but starving for weight loss can cause severe health risks which are not really worth losing your extra kilos.

Tricking your body

When you starve yourself consistently, your body gets convinced that it has to hold on to the small quantity of whatever little you eat during the starvation process which results into hurting your chances of losing weight efficiently.

You will also be depriving your body off the nutrients it needs in order to function well.

Losing muscle mass

It may sound as an easy walk towards losing weight and getting the body you desire, but you may be actually losing the existent muscle mass in your body.

Starvation burns fats only when it successfully depletes all the glucose in your body. Your body turns all the muscle into energy to let it function as starvation weakens the body. You lose muscle mass not weight, which makes your body and mental prowess weak.

Lower rate of metabolism

Starvation lowers your rate of metabolism. As the process keeps abusing the body with not providing it with the necessary nutrients our rate of metabolism, the element that naturally keeps us off weight gain, declines.

This declination literally means that after your drastic 'weight loss' due to starvation, you will gain weight faster and double of what it was pre-weight loss once you start eating, suddenly.

Losing immunity

Due to little or no inclusion of nutrients and food, for that matter, your now weak body slowly loses its immunity. The body gets more vulnerable to diseases, illness and life threatening consequences due to the starvation mode of weight loss.

Side Effects of Starvation for Weight Loss

Loss of memory
Hair loss
Irregular periods
Eating disorders
Brittle bones and nails
Regular fainting
Serious constipation
Damage of internal organs
Little or no existence of happiness injecting hormones
Extremely dry skin
Regular headaches
No positive thought processes
Starvation as a mode of weight loss is a dangerous process. Excessive starvation not only causes diseases like Kwashiorkor and leaves you mentally/physically unstable but it also results in the demise of the weight loser.

A potential weight loser can always look through various sources on the web as well as numerous fitness novels and magazines to understand and acknowledge the facts of a healthy dietary plan.

Always look for options such as juice cleansing to detox your body and follow a healthy diet. That way, you will live a healthy lifestyle and not cause any serious damage to you and your body.

alt If you are among the 80% of normal consumers, whenever you buy a product online, the first thing you will do is look for reviews!

Similarly, since we too are among the most common 80% of all consumers, we were looking reviews of the (in)famous diet pill, Lipozene.

But sadly, they were all on separate sites, blogs, forums, and we had to spend hours finding some honest reviews. That's why we decided to 'curate' this post and bring all the Lipozene reviews we could find all on the same page.

Here are the best and most honest ones we found:

Danny from my fitness pal says:
From the time I started taking lipozene I lost nearly 12 lbs in two months. I donít crave for junk food any more simply because I am not hungry. Itís a good product. My aim is to lose another 20 lbsÖ

Beverly on says:
Lipozene is working for me. From 190 lbs I am now 178 lbs in forty days. I am a lazy girl, exercise and gym is serious no no for me. My appetite has reduced a lot. But I get this serious nausea and bloating in the afternoon, but I read itís a side effect of the productÖ but as long as I am losing weight, I donít mind tolerating the nausea a bit. 

Wendy on her blog says:
I am taking this pill from past 20 days, not lost a single pound as yetÖÖ just headache, fullness and increased visits to rest room is all d change I have experienced till now.. is it really worth? 

Betty on her blog says:
Very effective product. Working well on me. Just the bloating and infrequent loose stools are kinda troubling If that get fixed it could be amazing; nevertheless the weight is going down for sure

Sarah on sparkpeople says:
I bought this product two days back and started yesterday. Omg it made me nearly breathless.. it chocked my throat, didnít know what was happening.. after 30 mins when I vomited thatís when I felt better. I read up on the net that it can cause you to choke.. I am not taking it again. I want a refund!

Megan on 3fatchicks says:
It does cause you to bloat and some abdominal discomfort, but nothing comes completely easily. If you want to lose weight and not make any efforts also then you have to bear some side effectsÖ this is what I think. and I am happily losing weight with this product.

Gwen on facebook says:
I am 54 and highly diabetic taking insulin and having morbid obesity. I bought these lipozene pills for weight loss. I feel seriously dizzy after taking them. My blood sugar falls drastically. I consulted my diabetologist he told me to stop it immediately. My advise to diabetic patients is to consult your doctor first before taking this pill.

Sandy on my fitness pal again says:
I started taking lipozene since last week. Havenít seen any change in my weight as yet but I suffer from chronic constipation and have undergone surgery for hemorrhoids and since 1 week I am having no constipation

Katie on her own blog says:
Its just a lot of fiber packed in these pills---the glucomannan. Fibre is good for the stomach. Donít know if fiber can make you lose weight. Will have to try it out to find it out.

Frank on his very popular blog says:
I have started taking lipozene since 15 days, no effect till now... Donít know if I should continue it or stop it. I have tried many weight loss pills till now. Donít understand why these pills take so long to act

Mindy on twitter says:
I am gonna start with lipozene today, I am 5í1 and weigh 188 lbs, my aim is to lose at least 20 lbs in the next 1 monthÖ wish me luck 

Weren't these Lipozene customer reviews motivating? We hope so, it took us almost 3-4 hours to find and go through all of these, so if you are seriously considering buying this product, we hope we helped save you a lot of time.

You know how when you look at an old picture of yourself and cringe at the current you and then wonder what went wrong?
The answer is lifestyle.

A lot of people succumb to an unhealthy lifestyle because itís just easier to let go of your health rather than hold on to it along with career, family and all thatís important.

Isabel De Los Rios, the creator of the beyond diet program and the author of a book by the same name has created this program to match everyoneís busy lifestyle and prove to be effective. You can learn more about it on the beyond diet central website.

Isabel De Los Rios is a certified nutritionist with over 15 years of experience in the nutrition industry.

She believes that most of the diets donít work for everyone because everybody is different.

You cannot standardise a diet plan for the masses. Therefore, the secret to the success of the beyond diet program is that it urges people to eat whatís right for them instead of just eating diet food or not eating at all.

Like it has been proven that crash dieting doesnít really work, Isabel De Los Rios strongly recommends avoiding crash dieting as you only put on all the weight back as soon as you stop dieting.

The beyond diet program is a scientifically formulated program that targets different metabolic structures and helps you to lose about 1-2 pounds per week, which is the healthy rate, recommended by most of the nutritionists and health experts.

The beyond diet program has garnered success stories from all around the world. Isabel initially created this program for her diabetic mother and later she brought it on a commercial platform. There is no doubt that she has put a lot of heart in it. For the first few months, it was targeted for only those having a high insulin resistance, high blood sugar, aka, weight loss for diabetics.

This program, firstly, identifies your metabolic diet type- protein, carbs or mixed. And then, lays out simple yet effective meal plans for the next 6 weeks. You can also customize the meal plans according to your need. This flexibility, helps the dieter to stay motivated and on the track.

The beyond diet program has been known to be effective to lose fat not just lose weight, which is a bigger concern to most of the people. In fact, it is proven that the first weight you lose is water weight.

Now there is no diet plan that works for everyone but this one has seen many of its users get into shape and good health. The beyond diet program reduces weight, cuts down your fat, retains your energy and is also known to visibly reduce cellulite.

It comes with a quick-start guide, meal plans, shopping lists, recipes and a money back guarantee if you are somehow unhappy with the program. Also, it does not join the league of diet programs that are effective but as soon as you stop dieting you pile all the weight back or more. The beyond diet program is a lifestyle change and it makes you look fitter and helps you feel healthier.

alt When you have invested money into your home or business carpets and rugs, it can be disheartening to have them disfigured by a stain, especially if it is in a highly visible area of your home. Stains can occur for many reasons. While it is typical to try to blot up or clean up as much of the unwanted substance quickly, it doesn't always get all of the residue from the carpet fibres. When this happens in your home, it is best to contact a carpet cleaning Northampton like stain removal specialist.


Many homeowners think that the off-the-shelf products found at the supermarket will help to leave the stained area looking good as new. They don't read the fine print on the labels, and may only be looking for the product that is the lowest cost. Unfortunately, this spray or foam may actually do more harm than good on some stains.

In addition to problems with the suitability of the product, it is often true that the homeowners will apply the product incorrectly. Most people will spray the foam or liquid over the area and then proceed to scrub at the stain. They will usually attack the most heavily stained areas first. This practice may spread the troublesome substance over a larger area making even more affected fibers.

Factors To Consider

There are several elements to consider when preparing to clean and removed stained areas of your carpet. Perhaps the most important is the product that was spilled. It may be impossible to remove corrosive substances, since they damage the fiber and the backing itself in many instances. A greasy or oil spill is a different matter than red wine spills. The amount of spilled substance and the area which it covers will affect how the cleaning process is approached.

Another thing to consider is how long ago the spill or stain happened. When the surface of the carpet or upholstery has been affected and has time to try, it can be much harder to fix the damage. The type of fiber that is affected by the stain is also important. Man-made fibers react differently to cleaning products than natural fibers do.

Benefits of a Specialist

A carpet cleaning Northampton specialist has the training to know how to recognize the type of stain that is causing the unsightly area in your rugs or upholstered pieces. This information, combined with knowledge of the specialized commercial cleaning products will enable him to select the correct products for the specific job of stain removal.

The correct procedures are utilized for the type of stain which is causing the distress. Even the best products won't get the area back to pristine condition if they are applied incorrectly. The extensive training and experience which are applied to each cleaning job promise the best long-term results.

A specialist also has access to the correct tools and equipment to remove the stain and return the treated carpet to like new condition. Everything from brushes to steam cleaning equipment forms the arsenal of weapons against dirty and stained carpets and upholstery.

alt At a first glance, Lipozene looks like the perfect product. It is advertised to be a miraculous fat burner, but it can also be purchased without consulting a doctor. It does not require a prescription either. According to the official website, customers have a 30 day back guarantee if they are not happy with it either. The terms are not mentioned though. With all these, the average consumer is more educated than ever. Most people want to read unbiased Lipozene reviews before actually spending money, even if it is not so expensive anyway. Such a thorough education is the direct consequence of numerous other products that came with similar claims, yet they were useless.

Surprisingly enough, there are not too many reviews related to this product, aside from the advertising websites that are introduced like personal reviews. Another intriguing fact is the lack of details. The Lipozene label does not include an active substance or the whole list of ingredients. Therefore, some critics agree that it is not necessarily a supplement, but an actual medication. All in all, the more you read about it, the more surprised you will be.

Things that you might never know about Lipozene

Lipozene seems to be based on fibers. Fibers stimulate the metabolism, but they will be useless without any associated therapies. You cannot eat all kinds of fibers and expect to achieve your dream silhouette overnight. Instead, such treatments must be mixed with a healthy lifestyle. You need to adopt a healthy diet too, which is not really mentioned on the official website. Moreover, the respective website does not encourage physical activity either. It is still not clear whether the manufacturer is trying to tell that its product works with no exercise and diet or it has failed to mention these things. All in all, the lack of a complete program is quite fishy.

On a different note, if you truly manage to find some unbiased reviews, most of them will not be too encouraging. Furthermore, a lot of people have reported nausea, as well as constipation. The so called supplement swells inside the stomach and blocks the free intestinal flow.

What options do I have?

Whether you ask specialists, trainers, doctors or physicians, most of them will recommend the classic solutions Ė diet and exercise. A supplementation is very useful too, although it must be properly selected.

From this point of view, Garcinia Cambogia is an excellent supplement if you find it in the right dose. It is excellent in blocking the sugar. It prevents the sugar from being converted into fat. Furthermore, it can lower the appetite, which means that you can forget about hunger.

The green coffee bean extract is just as helpful. It is nothing but regular coffee, only it is not roasted. It is rich in chlorogenic acid. It is found in several forms. You can find pills or tablets, but powders are just as handy for a quick drink. Sometimes, it is mixed with roasted coffee, so you will not even feel the difference.

alt HGH or Human Growth Hormone refers to a peptide hormone that the pituitary gland releases for initiating cell growth as well as regeneration. Known as somatropin when referred in context with humans, the growth hormone is essential for maintaining the health of skin, hair, and bone as well as ensuring recovery after injury. However, the level of this hormone considerably falls down in every decade after 30s. For restoring the hormone up to the desired level, HGH therapy in the form of injections or pills is recommended.

Of the two, the FDA-approved HGH injections for men and women are available at prices that are more competitive and that they give the desired effects more instantly. As a result, they have been on offer for decades despite being a bit pricking. Both injections and pills or releasers render the desired outcomes in the form of increased energy and lean muscle mass, restored hair color, fewer wrinkles, and reduced fat.

HGH Injections versus Pills

The injections tackle with the HGH deficiency in both kids and adults by instilling synthesized growth hormone with the help of the DNA recombinant expertise. In kids, this form of therapy is commonly used for increasing height. On the other hand, in adults, they cater to different purposes such as improving bone density, metabolism, and lean muscle mass.

Talking about pills, these dietary supplements contain formula that is made up of botanical ingredients, peptides, and amino acids for inciting the pituitary gland to secrete more HGH. Although they serve the same purposes as of injections, they are less costly.

Choosing between the two is actually dependent on a myriad of factors, and not only budget. Although intrusive, injections are more effective to render visible effects in some months, including in kids. However, they are costly to make you invest up to thousands of dollars per year. Nevertheless, HGH injections are not that costly for adults due to the need of 25% of the dosage that kids need but if required for life, the cost can be considerably more.

On the other hand, a quality HGH pill is less intrusive as well as more economical option for most patients, except or kids who need to grow up in terms of heights. Although the pills do not contribute to increased height, clinical trials conclude that they render benefits that are similar to injections, including improved metabolism, reduced fat, and more lean muscle mass. For optimum outcome, it is recommended having a pill with enteric coating for defending the primary ingredients against the stomachís acid as well as getting absorbed into the small intestine.

The Safety Factor

It sounds convincing to know that the FDA has approved the growth hormone therapy for fulfilling several health-based desires, including boosting HGH in kids and adults. Keeping in mind the extensive medical backgrounds of those who rely on injections and pills for HGH therapy, it might be too early to conclude that all these products as safe.

This is because both pills and injections have their own side effects although pills are widely used than injections if side effects are the biggest concern. Therefore, it is best to consult your doctor and accordingly choose one.
