There is no magic spell when it comes to weight loss. However, there are some things you can do in order to hasten weight loss. Outlined below are some effective weight loss tips that should help you in reaching your goal weight.
1. Include at least 5 servings of fruits and vegetables everyday
You should include at least 5 servings of vegetables and fruits in your everyday diet if you are keen about losing weight. Fruits and vegetables are packed with anti-oxidants, fiber and vitamins. Since they fill your stomach fast, you will feel fuller and not experience hunger pangs quickly. Being low in calories, fruits and vegetables will also help you to maintain a low calorie diet.
2. Stay away from junk food
Your efforts with weight loss will not be successful if you are unable to resist the intake of processed or junk foods. These mainly consist of snacks and fast foods such as pizza, burgers, potato chips and fries. These foods have a very low nutritional value and offer no health benefits whatsoever. A faulty diet will in no way help you to shed weight or remain healthy. Hence, you must replace all the greasy and sugary foods in your cupboard and refrigerator with healthy and nourishing alternatives.
3. Limit the size of your portions
Instead of eating three full meals a day, you can eat four or five smaller portions at regular intervals of time. This will help you to lose additional fat by boosting your metabolism and suppressing your appetite. In fact, this is one of the best and easiest to follow weight loss tips.
4. Drink a Lot of Water
Drinking a lot of water at regular intervals of time can help you to lose weight gradually. Drinking water can help you to shed weight by flushing out the unwanted toxins and fats from your body. To get the best results, you can drink at least 8 glasses a day. Water is the elixir of life; it can also keep other diseases at bay. It can prevent dehydration, which can impede with your fitness goals. Your body will not be able to function at the optimal level if your body is dehydrated. For instance, you will feel tired, your muscles will lose strength and you may not be able to burn fat quickly.
5. Lower your calorie consumption
You must also take serious efforts to lower your calorie consumption. You can do this by curtailing the amount of calories you consume by a small quantity each day. While this method may not help you to lose weight immediately, it can pave the way for future weight loss. Weight loss will start once you reach the point when calories burnt will be much more than the calories consumed each day. You should also cut down binging and snacking if you are keen about your achieving your weight loss goal.
6. Exercise regularly
Exercising can boost your over all health and help you to shed weight. While diets by themselves may help you to lose weight to a certain extent, they may not help in improving your physical fitness, stamina, mental state or flexibility. Only exercise can help you achieve a lot of health benefits. In order to eliminate excessive weight, you can go walking or do sit-ups as soon as you wake up in the morning and before retiring to bed. If you have the habit of visiting the gym regularly, you can make use of machines that can help in making your tummy flat.
As part of your overall weight loss tips, you can engage in cardio exercises. Running is also a good form of exercise that is not only good for the heart but for other parts of the body as well. Lifting weights can help in weight reduction in the upper parts of the body such as the arms. You can seek the help of a fitness instructor who can guide you with your weight loss efforts. Exercise mainly helps you to lose weight by revving up your metabolism. This in turn can help you to burn off additional fat within a short span of time.
7. Read the labels on food products before you purchase them
It pays to understand food claims and labels before purchasing the product for your use. A product labeled as fat-free may not necessarily be low in calories. Similarly, a product bearing a low-sugar label may not be low in calories or fat. Hence, you must read the nutrition label on the packaging carefully in order to have a better understanding of the product.
8. Keep a food journal
Maintaining a food journal will help you to have a tab on your eating pattern so that suitable changes can be brought in accordingly. You can also have a registered dietician review your journal and give suggestions.
9. Get adequate sleep
Sleeping is an effortless and popular weight loss tip. Having an undisturbed sleep can work wonders in your weight loss efforts. Research has indicated that sleep deprivation can lead to excessive hunger and appetite. This can trigger excessive eating. Having adequate sleep of at least 8 hours everyday aids weight loss by restoring the leptin level in the body.
10. Take nutritional supplements
You can use several methods to lose weight. In many people, exercise and diet alone will not lead to the desired results. Such people can use a mix of diet, exercise and nutritional supplements to achieve their weight loss goals. Acai is a great supplement for weight loss. Acai is a berry that is popular for its tremendous antioxidant properties. It is normally prescribed for boosting digestive healthy and energy levels among users. Acai not only prevents diseases such as strokes, premature aging and cancer but also free radical damage. All these wonderful features make this supplement an apt one for weight loss and general health.
If followed diligently, the previously mentioned weight loss tips can help you reach your goal weight quickly and almost effortlessly.
Don’t you just hate Microsoft operating systems? They resemble a giant snowball in free fall gathering more snow until the final crash when this happens the system becomes inoperable and we are forced to reformat. Well fear no more at Acidhardware we have compiled this guide on optimizing and maintaining a good clean Windows 2000 machine. It’ll hold off the final BSOD just a tad longer and maybe even increase your uptime and system stability. Please note some of the programs here are also available for Win9x and WinME, as this guide was written on my personal experience with Windows 2000 I have more knowledge and experience with tweaking and maintaining it.
I can’t stress to you enough the importance of this process. It not only increases performance but in some cases can also detect and correct any potential errors if used in conjunction with scanning, a quick scan and defrag can do wonders for your system. Defragmentation is basically the process of removing fragmented files and placing them onto another place in your hard drive to form one contiguous block of data. This allows for faster access(lower seek times) and greater STR(sustained transfer rates.) You may be asking this is all great in theory, but how do I regularly maintain this? Well AcidHardware has the answer. Although a very basic defragmentation tool is provided in Settings\Control Panel\Administrative Tools\Computer Management\Disk Defragmenter it has no options for schedueling or for defragmenting the Paging File and the Registry. These are two integral parts to any Windows operating system, so these files should be carefully maintained.
The programs ideal for this task are O&O Defrag, Perfect Disk 2000 and Diskeeper. O&O Defrag is what I currently use. It provides boot time defragmentation of the system files and scheduling all in a very easy to use package it is also quite fast and efficient on system resources. It can also be set to intelligently defragment a drive when it has reached a threshold amount of fragmentation e.g. defragment only at 20% fragmentation. Perfect Disk 2000 is a disk defragmentation tool with all the bells and whistles it has boot time defragmentation, scheduling with the added option of only allowing fragmentation to run for a specified amount of time eg 3 hours. Combined with the added ability to scan network volumes. It also incorporates “SMART” data placement which seems to me when it defragments a drive places certain files at the end rather than the beginning. This is an unconventional approach to defragmentation and I cannot verify whether it is beneficial or not. Finally the last program. Diskeeper this defragmentation tool whilst being speedy and allowing multiple volumes to be defragmented at once leaves less than desirable results. It often takes more than one pass to fully defragment a drive which is annoying when you have only scheduled it to run once. It also sports scheduling and boot time defragmentation. O&O Defrag boasts a freeware version of its disk utility and for that reason it comes highly recommended.
The programs can be found at the following links:
Raxco Perfect Disk 2000
Executive Software, Diskeeper
Defragmentation is not as crucial if you are using the NTFS file system as it does not fragment as badly as FAT32. However for a home PC FAT32 is a more ideal choice as it gives better performance. Home users do not normally need the security of the NTFS file system or its 2 terabyte space allowance or its better disk compression. If you are using an NTFS hard drive fragmentation may not occur as frequently. One of the key advantages of the NTFS file system is that it is a recoverable file system because it keeps track of transactions against the file system. Thus allowing CHKDSK to find inconsistencies more easily. The MFT Master File Table which keeps track of these file transactions often gets fragmented and may need defragmentation. Read more about FAT32 vs NTFS?here.
Keep that CPU Cool
This is a tip for Symmetric Multi Processor (SMP) Users. It turns out in Microsoft’s current kernel implementation for SMP they didn’t include a system idle process this process sends HLT commands to the CPU telling them to idle and conserve power thus generating less heat output. The program CPUIdle can be used to remedy this problem. There are other CPUIdlers available but in tests it has always shown that the original CPUIdle attains maximum efficiency. CPUIdle also has the option of being able to communicate with Motherboard Monitor allowing automated shutdown if the processor reaches a certain temperature. CPUIdle can be found?here.
Conserve That Memory
They say an elephant never forgets. In today’s world of computing if your elephant had at least 512 megabytes of RAM maybe it would never forget. Programs these days take up more and more RAM for example ICQ 2000 utilizes 11 megabytes of ram. In its previous incarnation ICQ 98 it only utilized 4 megabytes of RAM. Especially with today’s current trend from some companies releasing half completed non optimized software especially with the Christmas crunch nearby. Enter Freemem Pro it automatically detects memory leaks, applications reserving more RAM than required and terminated applications that are still holding RAM. It actively monitors this and frees RAM as needed. It has the option of also freeing up RAM aggressively when there is only a small amount left. It does in systems with 64 megabytes or less. Find it?here.A freeware program that achieves the same effect minus the bells and whistles can also be found?here.?It is called MemInfo II 0.90 and works well with 9x/NT.
Manage That Cache
Disk caching that is handled by Windows is often inefficient and slow. It is the cause of speed loss as the OS has to continually repost data due to error. This can be remedied by using such programs as O&O Clevercache. It seems to increase the responsiveness of my hard drives by about 20%. I have also heard that on computers with 64 megabytes of RAM or less it can increase performance by up to 50% find the program?here.
Tweak that Memory
On my daily travels through the Internet i stumbled across this nifty little Japanese application that increases memory bandwidth 15% on BX chipsets. It’s truly a little gem and at $10US to register it won’t cost you the earth. Find the program?here.?Read a discussion at bp6.com about it?here.
What to do if it all goes wrong
Have you ever experienced an explorer crash? Most Windows users have and when they see this they just reboot. Well now you don’t have to. Please welcome?Traysaver.?This program caches all your systray icons so in the event of an explorer crash it reposts all the icons. You may ask why would I bother if Windows 2000 already does this. Well the simple fact is it doesn’t do this well icons like ICQ etc are lost and if traysaver isn’t used then a reboot is in order.
Clean It Up
I may sound like a nagging old aunt but, if you want your system running at its best you’ll need to regularly clean out the recycle bin, internet cache, stray registry entries and orphaned DLLs and other files. A great program called Easycleaner can be found?here.?Another great program is Norton Cleansweep again it has all the bells and whistles although you may not need half of them find it?here.
Keep Up To Speed
Make sure you always have the latest updates for your Windows installation. Find them here:
Corporate Windows Update
Corporate Windows Update is only recommended for experienced users it has the latest Hotfixes but they are not always easy to install.
Links, Sites of Interest and Closing Thoughts
I have achieved a Windows uptime of over two weeks using the above mentioned methods. I encounter few problems with memory and little slow down due to a very clean memory system, registry and system directory with only the essentials. I also use the GeoShell desktop replacement?GeoShell.com?it is fast lean and efficient. With the combination of these methods any user should be able to keep their system running well and nicely. The most essential part of maintenance is that you keep it up constantly, as your computer is constantly. Use the scheduling options and don’t neglect that defragment or other vital system process. Some sites I have found to be invaluable in writing this article:
NT Compatible- A wealth of information on Windows 2000 and NT4
Tweakfiles- a great site for tools to tweak your system constantly updated
Shellcity- constantly keeps track of new and exciting programs include desktop shell replacements and tweaking programs.
Windows 2000 Performance Optimization Guide?- This site needs no introduction

I hope you have enjoyed the guide as much as I have enjoyed writing it. I hope it is useful and provides some insight for you into Windows maintenance and performance enhancement. I hope you will join me again soon for my articles. Thank you for reading.
Today, lots of people have more than one computer in their household because with newer and newer systems being released each month, people tend to upgrade alot more often than they used to, but then they don’t know what to do with their spare old computer. A good idea would be to network the computers, now the next problem comes into play, you’d get pretty bored if you had a computer without the internet right? I know I would. Most people can’t afford to get two internet accounts so they would rather share the internet with their other computer. Don’t know how? Then read on! Since most users are dialup users I will be focusing on sharing the internet with the normal dialup connection rather than cable or adsl sharing.
You can’t share the internet with another computer if their not both connected in a network. You have to choose one of the computers to be a “host” and the other computers to be “clients”. The host computer will be connected to the internet and the client or clients will use the host’s connection. Sounds great right? 2 internets for the price of one? Wrong. It does slow your connection down depending on what the person on the other computer is doing. If the other person is just viewing a webpage it won’t affect the others much. However, if the one of you is downloading a file it will noticeably slow the others down a bit.
How do I do it?
You can share internet using software such as Wingate or InternetGate but I find it the best with Windows 98 SE so I will be explaining how to share the internet with Windows 98 SE. It is extremely simple to share the internet with Windows 98 SE. All you have to do is go into Internet Explorer, Go to the Tools menu in the top left hand area, select internet options, click on the Connections tab up the top and then click Setup. From there an Internet Connection Sharing Wizard should come up. Select “I want to set up my Internet connection manually, or I want to connect through a local area network (LAN)”, click next and it should take you the rest of the way from there. Now how simple was that? You can have as many computers sharing the internet as you want you just repeat the process with the other computers.
Internet Connection Sharing is an excellent idea because it saves you money by saving you from getting another internet account. The only thing bad I have found while sharing the internet is it does get a bit slow sometimes. If you really need high speeds my answer to you is to upgrade your host computer to cable. With cable internet connection sharing you have to have 2 network cards in your host computer, one to connect to the hub and the other to connect to the cable modem. Since this is a internet connection sharing guide for Windows 98 SE I will not go into Cable modems. Look out for an “Internet Connection Sharing Guide for Cable” soon!
When there is no intent to get pregnant after having one child, the Mirena IUD sounds pretty good. There is a 99.9% accuracy of Mirena preventing pregnancy for 5 years. To me, when I was 17 and did not want another child until I was much older, it sounded like a God send. I will tell you that Mirena IUD did it’s job of preventing me from getting pregnant for 5 years. However, there were numerous things that I did not like about it.
It states in the known side affects that ovarian cysts may occur, but will typically go away on their own. During my time with Mirena, I always had cramps that made me want to tear my hair out. I did not know what the pain was and I just assumed that I was getting ready to start my monthly. I started paying more attention to the pain when my period would not follow. I went to the doctor and she said that it was most likely a cyst that was being squeezed. I am pretty much allergic to pain and anything to do with it.
They forgot to tell me about the discharge that may accompany the Mirena. It mostly happened when I was at work and moving around a lot. I went to the doctor, and she told me that there are two likely reasons for the discharge.
1. Mirena may thicken the cervical wall mucous to prevent the egg from being able to attach.
2. She said this was the probable cause of my discharge: the Mirena may rub against your ovaries making them produce more androgen, causing the leakage. This also led to the growth of what I termed “man hairs” in places where men generally have hair. Not a nice thing.
Tenderness of the breasts
My breasts became so tender that it would almost bring me to tears sometimes. I did not even want to have my child on my lap for fear that he would squirm and hit them. I was afraid that I had breast cancer all the time and the pain was always there.
Feeling the strings
Unfortunately during intercourse your partner can feel the strings, making for great discomfort. I was always afraid they were going to poke and hurt him. The doctor reassured me that was highly unlikely, but the thought was always there.
I have had my Mirena removed and have noticed a sharp decrease in the vaginal discharge and my breasts are no longer tear-jerkingly tender. I had a bad experience with it, and for 4 1/2 years I dealt with it. I am not saying that it can happen to everyone, but you need to take everything into consideration when choosing a birth control. I have went back to Depo-provera and am much happier in my decision.

A printable weight loss chart in many cases is simply a means of printing off a chart so you can record you weight. This allows you to track how much weight you are losing and see your progress. A good printable weight loss tracker however will give you a bit more. After all, losing weight is only one way to measure your progress.
When trying to lose weight a person goes through many ups and downs. During these times you may see no progress (or very little progress) in terms of pounds lost. However, what you may not know is that you may be losing inches or body fat. Often times when this happens a person does not know that even though the scale is not budging, they are in fact making progress towards their goal.
Therefore, to stay motivated and to see the full progress you are making, you want a printable weight loss chart that tracks it all – weight loss, inches lost and body fat lost. Although tracking every measurement is not needed, you will want to track more than just how much you lose in terms of weight. You should also track inches in a few areas of the body like the waist, arms and thighs. You can also track the hips and chest areas.
Additionally, using a weight loss chart to track your body fat percent is a great way to see the progress you are making. Losing excess body fat is important not only for weight loss but for your overall health. Excess body fat, especially belly fat, can lead to several medical risks such as heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes just to name a few. So your goal should not only be in terms of weight loss but also in a reduction of body fat percent.
When tracking your progress, you should weigh and measure at least once a week. More than this is not necessary as you can fluctuate by 2 to 4 pounds in a given day due to water weight. You will get a more accurate reading if you weight and measure yourself on the same day of each week at the same time of day. So pick a time when you can easily measure and record your progress.
Measuring body fat percentage is a bit more difficult than simply weighing yourself. You can purchase specialized equipment to measure skin folds in order to calculate your body fat percent. If you belong to a gym, have an instructor help you measure for body fat or ask your doctor. Another method is to use an online body fat calculator. Although these are not as exact as a skin fold measurement, it will give you a good basis to help measure your progress.
Of course tracking your progress is only one step towards reaching your goals. A printable weight loss chart is simply a tool to measure progress – it is up to you to do the work to reach your goal. Eating healthy and exercising are the two best methods to losing weight, reducing body fat and losing inches. So set up a meal plan and workout routine so that you can start to track and measure your progress and reach your goal.
