Where did we get the idea that aging had to mean "growing old?"

Can you picture yourself at age 70 or 80, still being active and energetic, enjoying a couple of laps around
the pool or 18 holes of golf? To many of us, a balanced diet, daily exercise and valuable nutritional
supplementation may not seem that important at age 20, 30 or 40. But it's the habits you form and the
way you live your life during those early years that establish a foundation for the energy and health you'll
have throughout the rest of your life.

Why Can't I Lose Weight? (Part 2)

Review Your Medication
Weight-loss plateaus are often caused not by what you eat but by prescription drugs. Drugs for high blood
pressure, especially diuretics and the drugs known as beta-blockers, can make your body extremely
resistant to weight loss. A lot of cardiology patients who come to The Atkins Center are taking these
drugs. They can't lose weight while they're on them, but being overweight is a big reason for their high
blood pressure.

At The Center, the solution to this circular problem, he explains, is to gradually taper patients off blood-
pressure medications and replace them with herbs and dietary supplements. As patients lose weight and
improve other aspects of their health, their blood pressure often returns to normal, eliminating the need for
any treatment. Always discuss any change in medications with your health-care practitioner.

The same chicken-and-egg situation applies to patients who are taking selective serotonin reuptake
inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressants. Common side effects of SSRIs, such as anxiety, sleeplessness,
nervousness and headaches, actually create carbohydrate cravings. For example, about 10 percent of
people on Prozac® have appetite loss, but about a third experience increased appetite. Patients quickly
start to lose weight when they stop these drugs.

Natural substitutes for SSRI drugs include the herbs St. John's wort and kava kava or inositol
hexanicotinate, a B vitamin. Warning: Never stop antidepressants on your own—you need to taper off
these drugs slowly—and that there can be interactions with alternative remedies. Don't forget to consult
your doctor. Cholesterol-lowering statin drugs also keep you from losing weight and they're potentially
dangerous as well. At The Atkins Center, we stop statin drugs immediately. Our low-carbohydrate eating
plan alone will improve blood lipids.

Forget the Java
Excessive
caffeine has the same weight-loss-inhibiting effect as aspartame because it can cause low
blood sugar, making you crave carbs. Caffeine is found not just in coffee and tea but also in chocolate and
many soft drinks. Switch to decaffeinated coffee and tea, experiment with flavorful herbal teas or stick to
plain, pure water. You may miss caffeine or even experience withdrawal symptoms at first, but, as
Eberstein points out, "We often see weight loss start up again as soon as patients remove caffeine and
aspartame from their diet."

Are You a Diabetic?
The most fattening of all the hormones is
insulin. Diabetics who have to inject insulin find it almost
impossible to lose weight. Oral drugs are almost as bad. According to Dr. Atkins, "The majority of oral
medications for diabetes have a weight-gain effect. Even drugs that don't stimulate insulin have this effect.
The one drug that does help diabetics control their blood sugar and lose weight is metformin, marketed
under the brand name Glucophage®. At The Atkins Center, physicians often prescribe this for diabetic
patients when they start the Atkins program. Once they've been following it for a while, their need for the
drug almost invariably disappears."

3. Weight Loss  & Exercise Tips

Avoid the top 5 Fitness Failures

  1. Don't neglect strength training just because you're a cardio buff. More lean muscle mass gained
    from weight lifting burns more calories.
  2. Don't hold your breath when lifting weights. It could strain your heart. Inhale as you release
    weight and exhale as you push out.
  3. Don't worry about bulking up. Women don't produce enough testosterone to bulk up. Weight
    training will simply sculpt your body and boost your metabolism.
  4. Don't pig out just because you're exercising. Exercise can increase your appetite, but don't let
    it give you a false sense of being able to chow down.
  5. Don't hesitate to hydrate. Proper hydration can both increase your energy and help reduce your
    appetite. Don't mistake thirst for hunger!

4. FAQ 
Is it better to work out in the morning or the afternoon?
 
Some studies show that you burn more stored fat if you exercise in the morning rather than later in the
day because it increases the metabolic rate for several hours afterward—so you burn more calories from
food eaten during the day. But what may be more important is finding time to fit exercise into your
schedule when you are most likely to do it. What is important is establishing the habit.

Can't you lose weight without exercising?

You may be able to lose weight without exercising, but it is not recommended. Exercise not only
speeds weight loss and enhances muscle tone, it also offers a host of other health benefits. Many
studies have shown that inactivity is a serious risk factor for heart disease; more recently, lack of
exercise was linked to a greater risk of developing cancer.
