The way things are right now, anyone with excess weight knows how bad they feel when they are either at the beach or just walking along the streets. With TV, internet and radio ads, we are being constantly reminded of why we should lose weight. Therefore, it is normal that anyone slightly overweight tends to feel insecure and unattractive. If you look around you, every model in the ads you frequently see tells you that an excess of weight isn’t necessary. Besides, gaining weight isn’t exactly in vogue anymore as even doctors keep recommending a slimmer body or at the worst, a decrease in bodily fat.
While no one is required to lose all their body fat as in Bruce Lee the late Kung fu legend, it is necessary to lose weight so as to have and sustain a healthier body. Weight loss these days seem like a hard thing to do and the array of products, weight loss supplements and weight loss methods leaves a lot of people confused. This article will help establish the basic things you need to do to lose some weight. After that, you can then go ahead to taking any other supplements or adopt some methods.
1. Eat less Junk Food
More often than not, eating less fatty foods will drastically cut down the amount of fat in your body. Therefore, if you want to really start losing weight, a drastic cut down in the amount of junks you eat will be the right step in the right direction. Junk foods tend to contain a lot of fat which have very high calorific content. Instead, substitute your foods with more fiber based fruits. Instead of grabbing a sandwich or a hot dog as snacks, do yourself a favor and snack on an apple instead. This will help you cut down on the amount of fat stored in the body.
2. Exercise more
Just a simple question: When was the last time you really had a long vigorous walk? If you are fat, I am sure you would have lost a feel of what this is. A long vigorous walk is often that starting point to fat loss asides cutting down on junk foods or high calorie content foods. Exercise more; if you can start running. But if you are in mid-forties, you might have to consult with your doctor before embarking on such physical fitness regimens. Start gradually if it’s been a long while and watch your fat go down in a matter of weeks.
3. Cut down on the carbs
While carbs are not as bad junks, some of them have high calorific values. These carbohydrates when eaten in large quantities clog your arteries and veins with fat while adding fat to your body particularly around the middle region. Instead of taking in foods high in carbohydrate reduce your intake of carbohydrates and substitute with proteins. This will surely put you on the right path to weight loss as proteins are not fatty in nature.

Taxonomic position: Division: Magnoliophyta Class: Magnoliopsida, Order: Fabales Distribution: South and South-East Asia, the Pacific Islands, northern Australia, South and Central America, the Hawaiian Islands, parts of Africa, Nigeria and France. In India, it currently occurs throughout Kerala state and in certain parts of the northeast, especially the state of Assam. Its occurrence in other states is unknown and needs to be ascertained. M. diplotricha has not attained weed status in the Americas, Western Asia, East Africa and Europe. Habit: M. diplotricha is a fast-growing, erect shrub and a scrambling climber, which can form dense thickets in a short span of time. It is an annual, although behaves as a perennial. Leaves are bright green, feathery, alternate, each leaf with about 20 pairs of small leaflets, bipinnate, sessile, opposite, lanceolate, acute, 6 - 12 mm long and 1.5 mm wide, sensitive to disturbance. The stem is four-angled, woody at the decumbent base, with re-curved thorns (3 - 6 mm long), up to 3 m in height. The inflorescence is a clustered fluffy ball, about 12 mm across, pale pink, occurs on short stalks (1 cm long) in leaf joints; the corolla is gamopetalous; there are twice as many stamens as petals. The flowering period is from August to February, but can vary from region to region; it flowers throughout the year in some tropical countries. The pods are clustered, 10 - 35 mm long and 6 mm wide, linear, flat, clothed with small prickles, splitting transversely into one-seeded sections at the groves. The seeds are flat, ovate, spiny, 2 - 2.5 mm long and 0.6 - 1.4 mm thick, glossy and light brown. Seed production is in the range of 8,000 - 12,000 per m2. The weight of 1,000 seeds is around 6 gm. Seed setting is from September to February. Roots are profusely branched and with root nodules. **** ISG.ORG. www.issg.org/database/species/ecology.asp?si=997&fr=1...

Early detection and control is recommended to prevent large infestations from establishing. Description Mimosa diplotricha is a shrubby or sprawling annual vine which may also behave as a perennial. Its stems are bunching, often scrambling over other plants. Additionally, they are distinguished by four-angles, each of which consisting a line of sharp, hooked prickles. Leaves are bright green, feathery and fern-like and are arranged in an alternating pattern, with each leaf divided into five to seven pairs of segments. Each segment carries about twenty pairs of very small leaflets which close up when disturbed or injured and at night (DPIF, 2007). Habitat description Mimosa diplotricha grows best in tropical regions: high moisture and in highly fertile soils. It is known to thrive under full sunlight conditions. M. diplotricha is naturalised in high rainfall areas of coastal north Queensland, Australia (DPIF, 2007). General impacts Mimosa diplotricha is a major weed of cultivated areas and has the ability to climb over other plants (Schultz 2000). In the Kaziranga National Park in northeast India, the weed forms a thorny mat over the natural vegetation, preventing animals from accessing and utilising natural vegetation (N. Gureja, pers. comm. 2003). In Australia the weed chokes out cane, other crops and grassland, causing crop and pasture loss (DPIF, 2007). Notes Mimosa diplotricha is still often referred to as Mimosa invisa in the literature. Geographical range Native Range: Mimosa diplotricha is native to Brazil (DPIF, 2007). Known introduced range: American Samoa, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, French Polynesia, Guam, New Caledonia, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Australia, Taiwan, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Philippines, Christmas Island (Australia), La Réunion (France) and Mauritius. Physical: Hand control is difficult due to spines. Plants can be slashed before seeding occurs. Slashing in pastures and other non-crop situations on a regular basis to prevent seeding provides effective control (DPIF, 2007). Chemical: Any herbicide that is applied should be done so before seeding occurs. The weed is not susceptible to soil fumigants and short-term residual herbicides, (although it may be temporarily controlled with atrazine, diuron and hexazinone at standard to high rates). It is susceptible to translocated herbicides including sodium arsenite, 2,4-D plus atrazine, fluroxypyr and probably glyphosate at standard rates. In non-grazed infested areas 4.5 mL Starane 200 per litre of water can be used (DPIF, 2007). More details of herbicide application may be found at DPIF, 2007. Biological: An introduced sap feeding bug, the psyllid Heteropsylla spinulosa has been released as a biocontrol agent for M. diplotricha in north Queensland, Austalia, in non-crop areas. Releases at Palikir, Pohnpei have also proven effective. (DPIF, 2007, Waterhouse 1994, in PIER 2008). In Australia it is recommended that pastures and non-crop infestations are assessed for insect abundance between November-April. (The effectiveness of insect control can be predicted by abundant insects prior to flowering commencing in early April). If insects are present in sufficient numbers, the growing tips and leaves are curled and stunted, resulting in no or minimal flower production. Slashing or herbicides should be applied if there are not sufficient numbers of insects prior to April for effective control. In pastures grazing animals tend to control this protein rich legume and prevent it dominating. Plants stunted by Heteropsylla attack are less spiny and are readily grazed by stock. An isolated strain of the stem-spot disease (Corynespora cassiicola) (indigenous to Australia) also appears specific to giant sensitive plant. One study noted that the citheroniid moth (Psigida walker) caused a significant extent of defoliation and the subsequent prevention of seeding of M. diplotricha in Brazil (Vitellia et al., 2001). However, it was shown that the citheroniid moth lacked the target specificity required as it attacked several native bipinnate Acacia species, thus was deemed unsuitable for release (Vitellia et al., 2001). Reproduction Mimosa diplotricha produces thousands of seeds (N. Gureja pers. comm. 2003). Seeds have been known to lie dormant for up to 50 years (DPIF, 2007). **** WIKI en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mimosa_diplotricha **** WEEDS ORG.AU. www.weeds.org.au/cgi-bin/weedident.cgi?tpl=plant.tpl&...
