If your mental image of an older person is someone frail and thin, it may be time for an update. For the generation currently moving through middle age and beyond, a new concern is, well, growing: obesity. Government figures show that Americans in their 60s today are about 10 pounds heavier than their counterparts of just a decade ago. And an even more worrisome bulge is coming: A typical woman in her 40s now weighs 168 pounds, versus 143 pounds in the 1960s. "People used to start midlife [at a lower weight] and then lose weight when they got into their 50s, but that doesn't happen as much anymore," says David Kessler, former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration and author of The End of Overeating.
If you're entering that danger zone now, be aware that it's not going to get any easier to lose weight, because people need fewer calories as they age. Blame slowing metabolism and the body's tendency starting in midlife to lose muscle mass—a process known as sarcopenia—and gain fat, especially around the abdomen. (Fat burns fewer calories than does muscle.) "All that conspires to make it harder for people to maintain the same body weight when they eat their usual diets," says Alice Lichtenstein, director of the cardiovascular nutrition laboratory at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts University. "People have fewer discretionary calories to play with, so they need to make better food choices."
Americans work 40-60 hours weekly and remain below poverty lines. Poverty levels in states are misrepresented mainly because all wealth in a particular states is used to average out population income. The more millionaires per states and the fewer residents equates fewer people showing up in poverty count. This process can never be totally accurate because there is no way we'll ever be able to track where and how many places the wealth of millionaires and billionaires is stored. Americans who are wealthy are not all corrupt. The system they earn gains under is corrupt. The American system creates poverty for all who work for their money in America while those whose money works for them continue to experiece gains in wealth just for having money working for them. Poverty is straigth out of slavery and poverty devastrates lives of working class Americans. We can't fix the heart of men. Fix the systems and we fix poverty.
Moving aimlessly is like being a hamster on a spinning wheel. Much ado about NOTHING!
Vision drives activity and direction. If you have a global destination, you may need a boat or plane and it may take many hours or days to arrive. Short excursions require much much less effort, and energy. However, the bigger the destination, the more energy and effort and cost and therefore, fewer of us experience those big trips.
Same with vision. When the Wright brothers tinkered with air travel, and Ford tinkered with the automobile in a time of the horse and buggy - those visions pulled them up, and outside of the zone of the ordinary.
The notion that if you can see it, you can believe it, is not just rhetoric; words said to sound elevated. This concept was coined out of the idea that a thought creates a reality. When that thought or vision is BIG, so big it is almost scary, bordering on the realm of the impossible within the current reality -a NEW door opens. That door is to a new dimension that can only exist for those who pursue it.
What if you took your goals and multiplied them by 10? I did. The first few seconds I did, I was flooded with thoughts convincing me that this was impossible. Moments later, I found myself dreaming what it would like if those 10Xed goals WERE possible, and I stepped through a door to a new dimension and anything less seems like a waste of time.
Chances are, even if I never truly hit the 10X version of my goal, I will go beyond the original goal set. I invite you to join me. DREAM BIG! Then, DREAM BIGGER. You will find yourself experiencing, an elevated life.
Low-Fat Eaters Burned Fewer Calories, Were More Likely to Regain Lost Weight
June 26, 2012 -- New research challenges the idea that a calorie is a calorie, suggesting that certain foods and diets may be better than others for burning calories and helping people maintain weight loss.
The study appears this week in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
Study participants who had lost weight agreed to follow low-fat, very-low-carb, and low-glycemic-index diets for a month each.
Even though they ate the same number of calories on each of the three plans, the study participants burned about 300 calories a day less on the low-fat eating plan than they did on the very-low-carbohydrate one, which was modeled after the Atkins diet.

A Cougar: An "older," experienced woman who happens to find herself in a sexual relationship (committed or not) with a younger man. She is not necessarily a slut, nor is she desperate. She offers sexual expertise and is open to new experiences. She simply wants to have fun. Though older, she may actually look younger than her "hook-up." She is attractive, confident, and just wants to have fun. She will not attempt to trap her mate into marriage, children or even an exclusive relationship. She is not interested in drama or games, as that would interfere with the pleasure she enjoys.
