2009 is going to be a favorable year for all those struggling with weight loss. Why? Well, it is no secret that since the beginning of this year the economy has been hard-hit by recession. With pockets going almost half empty, people would think twice before indulging in excesses of any kind, their junk food addiction notwithstanding. As a matter of fact, junk foods usually cost much more than natural foods. This is why people are likely to spend less money on junk foods and more on natural fruits and vegetables. Consequently, they are bound to lose weight!
With the recession setting in, you should be doing due diligence before investing in a diet program. There are useless fad diet programs which you should avoid at all costs. Usually, diets which focus only on one type of food or other should be avoided.
So what types of diet programs should you choose:
1. Diets that don’t limit you to just one food group: A healthy meal is one which contains fat, carbohydrates, protein, vitamins, etc., in equal proportions. If any of these components is missing from your current meal, it cannot be called a healthy meal. Likewise, diets which severely restrict your carbohydrate or fat intake are not the right diet plans for you. Of course, it goes without saying that almost all diet programs out there would limit your junk food intake in some form or other.
2. Diets which not only detoxify your body but also offer suggestions on how to keep it clean and free from toxins in future: When you eat junk foods for a long time, toxins get deposited in your intestines, which in turn pollute your entire body. These toxins prevent you from losing weight speedily. Once your body gets rid of these toxins, you would feel much lighter and healthier. In addition, detoxifying your body would also help you lose a few pounds. Make sure that your diet program offers suggestions on detoxification of your body!
3. Diets that recommend workouts and exercises: Make sure that your diet program recommends exercises which help you to:
a) Burn fat
b) Build muscles
Diets with no clear recommendations with regards to workouts, or diets which explicitly state that workouts are unnecessary should be avoided. Frankly speaking, any diet program which proclaims that you don’t need to workout at all is just fooling you!
So if you are looking for a way to improve your health and restore your body’s own natural detoxification system, herbal detox teas such as Lipo Cleanze is the perfect solution.

Image by pierre pouliquin Random visit Los aguajes, que se pueden comprar da todos lados en Iquitos (pero no se encontran a Lima), se comen asi, o con un poco de sale; en (deliciosa) bebida, aguajina, en chupete... Pero como se corten los arboles grandes en la cuencua amazonica para recorrer le, non es sustenible. Dos semanas despues de la caidade los troncos, se prenden tambien los suri de aguaje (larva del insecto Rynchophorus palmarum) ...muy gustosas y nutriente tambien, si si, muy ricas!!. Aguaje can be bought everywhere in Iquitos (but are not found in Lima), the fruit can be eaten so (only the yellow top layer) or with salt; as delicious drinks (aguajina), as ice cream (chupete)… But the tall trees are cut down from the rain forest to harvest the fruits, so it’s clearly unsustainable. Two weeks after cutting down the trees, “suri de aguaje” are also harvested from the trunk, those insect, beetle (Rynchophorus palmarum) larvae are…excellent and very nutritious, yes!!! (grilled: crunchy outside and soft inside) yummy!! Da aca: www.insitu.org.pe/webinsitu/aguaje.htm "Palmera de frutos comestibles, originaria del Perú. Se encuentra en las cuencas de Loreto, San Martín, Ucayali y Huanuco, ya sea en forma silvestre o agrupada en grandes manchales (comunidades de la misma especie). Alcanza los 35 m. de altura, tiene hojas compuestas de 5-6 m. de largo, fruto elíptico de 5-7 cm. de largo y 4-5 cm. de ancho." Aguaje, from this link: www.rainforestconservation.org/articles/aguaje.html “The Mauritia flexuosa palm (called "aguaje" in Peru) can grow to over 100 feet tall in the rainforest as it competes for available light its swampy environment. It's trunk is very hard and slippery, making it almost impossible to climb and requiring people to fell the tree to harvest the large bunches of aguaje fruit. Aguaje, along with other economically important fruit trees, is being destroyed at alarming rates throughout the Peruvian Amazon (Gentry and Vásquez, 1989). This is a clear example of an unsustainable extraction activity (see Agroforestry section below for details). The most important native fruit in this region for both urban and rural people, some 15 metric tons of aguaje is brought to Iquitos daily for use in the local fruit, ice cream, and cold drink industry. Hundreds of urban people, mostly women, were employed in the marketing of aguaje products in the 1980s (see Padoch, 1988), and the number has increased during the 1990s. This is a thriving local industry, where demand for aguaje exceeds supply and is independant of international markets or investment. But aguaje is not only important for humans. It is an important fruit in the diets of the lowland tapir and white-lipped peccary that roam the rainforest (Bodmer, 1990). It is also eaten by primates, rodents, and other mammals. These animals rely on aguaje when other fruits are scarce, making aguaje a keystone species in the forest (see Peres 1994). Each time an aguaje tree is destroyed there is less aguaje fruit available to these animals, lowering the rainforest's carrying capacity for these species. Long-term effects are not yet known, but pressure from hunting and the loss of food supply negatively affect animal populations. Aguaje shortages also hurt employment and the economy in the region. Large portions of the vast primary forest in northeastern Peru have by now lost much of their economic and ecological value. There may be towering, majestic trees in front of us, but we might be viewing a relatively "empty" forest, stripped of many important species playing key ecological roles (see Redford, 1992). In the Peruvian Amazon, biodiversity loss is being caused not so much by deforestation, as by over-hunting and the unsustainable extraction of non-timber products such as aguaje. RCF has initiated an agressive education and extension program with the local people by planting aguaje in settlement zones. Aguaje trees grow relatively shorter in these open areas so it does not have to be cut down to retrieve the fruit. The goal is to plant enough aguaje in people's garden plots and fallows in the buffer zone so they won't have to enter the reserve and destroy the very tall, naturally occuring trees. Animal populations should benefit as their habitat (the aguaje swamps) recovers, and the reserve's capacity to carry these species increases. Because aguaje is a keystone species, the recovery of these swamps these should help a multitude of organisms in the forest.” Other conservation initiatives: www.pronaturaleza.org/voluntarios_new3.htm Other uses of the The Mauritia flexuosa palm (aguaje): en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weaving#Weaving_in_Amazonia www.biobio.com/Articles/craftplants.html
