Ted.com Video Alert : Paula Johnson: His and hers … healthcare

Every cell in the human body has a sex, which means that men and women are different right down to the cellular level. Yet too often, research and medicine ignore this insight — and the often startlingly different ways in which the two sexes respond to disease or treatment. As pioneering doctor Paula Johnson describes in this thought-provoking talk, lumping everyone in together means we essentially leave women's health to chance. It's time to rethink.

Fat Burning Recipes to Die for!

Why you need 3 weeks to lose weight & keep it off?

Research has shown that most overweight people are carrying around 10-20 pounds of unwanted body fat. Research has also shown that most diets fail. From my experience, most diets fail because they take the long, slow, boring approach to weight loss. When weight loss comes off at 1-2 pounds a week, the rewards for the sacrifices it takes to get there really aren’t worth it.

The 3 Week Diet accomplishes in 3 weeks what most diets take 4-5 months to do.

The 3 Week Diet was specifically designed to be an extremely rapid method for burning between10-20 pounds of body fat.

I understand that for a diet to be ultra-successful, it absolutely must produce very rapid results.

When results come quickly, the dieter receives the necessary feedback that the diet is working and that it’s worth doing.

This results in the dieter sticking with the diet. When the dieter sticks with the diet, the results snowball and the outcome is successful weight loss and a brand new body.

This is why the 3-Week Diet works! You will soon see that you will notice favorable body composition changes in the very first couple of days on the diet. In the very first week alone, you will likely see in the neighborhood of 10 pounds of fat stripped away from your body. Your clothes will be loser...you’ll feel lighter...and you’ll look and feel 10x better than you did just a week before.

21 DAYS TO MAKE A HABIT

Research has shown that it takes approximately 21-days for us to develop a new habit.

This means 21 days of eating healthy... 21 days of going to the gym... 21 days of doing what ever it is that you want to implement as a habit into your life.

Far too often, when we try to implement a new habit into our lives, we look at it in unmanageable light. Because of this, these new healthy habits never get off the ground because instead of focusing on just 21—days, we sabotage our goals with the mindset that we will have to sacrifice forever.

So, Instead of starting out with thoughts of making a new habit for life, make you can make it a lot easier simply by telling yourself that you are just going to “try” this diet for just 21-days. We can all do 21-days, right? Let your brain “know” that once this “trial period” is over, you can go back to your old eating habits.

Then, while your brain lets you participate in this “trial,” it will also be working to form new neural pathways once it realizes that the new habit has benefited you positively in some way.

This is the science behind how we develop habits and research has shown that it takes approximately 21 days to develop new habits or to break old ones.

The 3 Week Diet

In the case of the 3-Week Diet, your brain will have noticed that it now takes less work to move your body throughout the day because it has shed so many pounds. It will notice the increased energy you have as a result of your daily walks, weekly resistance training and other exercise components of this diet.

Your body will also take note of your physical appearance, your muscle tone and how your clothes now fit much looser. Basically, your brain will see remarkable benefits that will stick with you and cause you to follow along the path of good eating and exercise habits.

Now, understand that research has shown neural pathways to any habit (even those bad ones) can be life-long, which means bad habits can resurface when triggered to do so.

This means that you constantly have to be aware of your thoughts and you need to make conscious efforts to avoid engaging in those bad habits of the past. Believe me, after 21 days, it’s relatively simple to convince yourself to avoid those bad habits of the past.

While you will be able to indulge in your favorite foods, they will not be able to take over your life. My intention of the 3 Week Diet is not only to burn fat away fast but to also force new, good habits of eating and regular exercise that will stay with you forever.

This will ensure that you get the body you’ve always wanted and keep it for life.

My Journey from US size 0 to 8 & Back
(I sacrificed my body to science just for you, my dear blog readers)

After my 3rd kid, I was a size 6-8 (depending on my dinner). I really tried everything:

  • Exercise - 10-12 km jogs everyday
  • Eating Less - Isn't losing weight just 'Eating less & Moving more'?
  • Duramine Diet pills - I lost my appetite, became an insomniac but was totally pepped up with energy. All would have been well except you can't take this long term coz' it's bad for your internal organs & I was cranky as hell! (What do you expect with 3 -4 hours of sleep every night, I was getting delusional...)
  • Tummy patches from Korea - You can't use this everyday coz' in the Singapore heat, it gets itchy. The verdict is still out on this, I think I just got an extremely itchy & sweaty stomach, with a slight loss in belly fat.
  • Marie France Bodyline Slimming Treatments - I tried a cocktail of all their treatments (1 each at a promotional price). I did lose quite a bit of my weight gain from my pregnancies and most of my stomach fat (my problem area), but the pounds rushed right back after I stopped the program (Who can spend thousands of $$$ to maintain my post-treatment weight? Darn, aren't I supposed to be able to keep the weight off on a semi-permanent basis?).
  • Body wraps & 'Lipolysis' - OK, be careful of this. You can suffer so much water loss through sweat and dehydration that you actually feel dizzy & unwell. The inch loss and weight loss is imaginary as you will definitely need to drink water & Boom! It's baaaaccccck...
  • Indonesian Jamu massages - This was my first treatment & the massage was quite painful (1 hour's worth of 'No pain, no gain') & there appeared to be bruises on my tummy. The massage was supposed to 'soften' the hard crystallized fat in your belly!
  • Zaggora Hotpants - I loved these hotpants for running, you sweat like a pig under the wetsuit material of the hotpants and feel like you have accomplished a whole lot. I did get my amazing trim thighs!
  • 3 Week Diet - I am working on getting my tummy as flat as possible and maybe getting that line down the middle of your stomach if you are really in great shape for a woman. I am on a reasonable high protein-low carb diet plan (No Atkins diet for me!). By reasonable, I mean I eat like a normal person, no starvation required. In fact, I try to eat small meals 4 hourly, supplemented with Fish oil, Whey protein, CLA, Leucine, Greens+ Superfoods, Fat burners and plenty of water to clear the toxins from my body. (Work in progress - I will report back to you of the results)

My After weight loss picture was taken at the beginning of this year and I am 45 years old (2015). I am a US size 2-4 now. I don't think I will ever be a size 0 again in this lifetime & be able to slip on a dress without even unzipping it (like in the good ole days... never mind, there is always my next life.)

In case you think I have skinny Chinese genes, nope, my grandfather had pants 3 normal-sized guys could get into. My mother used to horrify me with stories of how my aunt's 20 inch waist before marriage became 20 inch thighs after her 4 kids. I was determined not to walk down that scary path of permanently being called 'Auntie' by all and sundry.
