Side Effects of Super Dieter’s Tea

Super Dieter’s Tea is a tea product containing senna and generally consumed by those wishing either to relieve occasional constipation or to cleanse. According to the manufacturer, Super Dieter’s Tea may help support weight loss efforts. It contains roughly 10 ingredients including the sweetener stevia, but its cleansing properties are due to the herb senna which functions as a mild laxative and can cause or worsen diarrhea, loose stools and abdominal pain, according to the National Library of Medicine.

Diarrhea may result from consuming Super Dieter’s Tea. Senna decreases the time it takes for food to travel through the digestive tract, causing frequent stools, and as a result, the colon may not adequately reabsorb water, causing loose stools. Diarrhea is defined as an increased frequency of stools, greater than three per day, or a decreased consistency of stools, caused by excess water, compared to what is normal for you.

Abdominal Pain:
Abdominal pain, often in the form of cramping, is another possible side effect of Super Dieter’s Tea. Senna increases the speed of digestion by stimulating rhythmic contractions of the colon, and cramping can result, and it may be accompanied by nausea, which should not lead to vomiting. Stop using the product if symptoms are severe or do not go away, and if symptoms persist after discontinuation, see your doctor.

Other Symptoms:
In addition, senna may cause your urine to turn yellow-brown, but this condition is harmless, according to the National Institutes of Health. It is very uncommonly associated with more serious symptoms such as bloody stools, dizziness and weakness, which may be due to water loss in the form of diarrhea. Talk to your doctor if these symptoms occur.

Why consuming calories before a cardio work out is not helping you lose weight

If your trying to lose weight by dieting and cardio this why you should not  consume calories before a work out. If you eat anything before a work out lets say you eat a protein bar or a health bar or anything and that snack has 200 or so  calories and you start doing cardio for 30-45 minutes and with in that 30-45 minutes you burn 150-200 calories your really not burning the fat that you wanted to, your just wasting your time and effort, because you body is using that snack as fuel not your fat for that workout that you just did. So try not to eat anything about 1-2 hours before your workout and a few hours after your workout, because your body will be recovering  after your done exercising and it’ll be using your fat as fuel for recovery and if you eat right after your work out the body will be using the food you just ate instead of the fat..



2 Ways Walking is Better Than Running

Walkers Get Fewer Injuries Than Runners

Walking produces far fewer injuries, the least injuries of any aerobic exercise. Researchers note that up to half of all runners are affected by running injuries each year, most commonly of the knees. It has long been suspected that these injuries, as well as stress from long runs such as marathons, leads to changes that can result in osteoarthritis, especially in the knee.


Walking Is Lower-Impact than Running:

Runners impact the ground with three times their body weight with each step, while walking only produces an impact of 1.5 times your body weight. This is especially important if you are overweight or already have developed joint problems. As a lower-impact exercise, you feel less fatigue and there is less wear-and-tear on your body with walking. Yet walking is still is a weight-bearing exercise that may prevent bone loss.

Coffee and Weight Loss – Can Coffee Help You Achieve Fat Loss Success?

Coffee & Weight Loss:

Coffee and weight loss have often been linked causally, but does that mean that coffee can help you lose weight? In a way, yes.

You see although the research on the link between drinking coffee and losing weight isn’t close to reaching a consensus, there are legitimate reasons that the link could exist. This doesn’t mean that you should double or triple your daily dose coffee, but you should know that the one cup you do have can simply boost fat loss efforts.

There are three specific reasons coffee has been linked to weight loss;

Appetite Suppressant: The caffeine in coffee can suppress your appetite, which inevitably will lead to weight loss particularly if you currently consume more calories than your body needs. This appetite suppression, however, is somewhat inconclusive right now as there is no way to gauge exactly how long the appetite will be suppressed.

Water Weight: For many dieters the caffeine in coffee has diuretic properties which makes you go to the bathroom more. This loss of water will have a positive impact on your weight, but you should keep in mind that this is just water weight not body fat. The temporary loss of water weight will make your weight go down, but not so significantly that you can forego a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Fat Burning: Another way in which coffee and fat loss are linked is due to the thermogenic properties of coffee. The caffeine found in coffee boosts your metabolism so you can burn more of the calories you consume. This can help with weight loss because if you’re burning more calories, fewer of them are being converted—and stored—as fat. When doubled with a calorie controlled diet, its clear to see how this can boost fat loss

More Coffee = More Weight Loss?

Should you drink more coffee to boost your weight loss efforts?

The negative side effects of drinking too much coffee could outweigh the weight loss benefits of coffee. I wouldn’t suggest increase the amount of coffee you already drink each day; just enjoy the weight loss boost you get from your regular coffee regimen.
