Losing Weight is an Inside Job

The importance of being thin is plastered all over television, 
newspapers and magazines. The "skinny" image is what the media 
tells us is correct. This image is putting a lot of stress on 
women to be skinny. Society thinks that if you want to be 
beautiful, you also have to be skinny.

Because of this, many women go to great lengths to obtain the 
"skinny" image. Some even get caught in the dangerous bulimic and 
anorexic trap. Both bulimia and anorexia are very serious 
conditions that require medical treatment. According to Stedman's 
Medical Dictionary: Bulimia nervosa, more commonly known as 
bulimia, is an eating    disorder. It is a psychological condition 
in which the subject engages in recurrent binge eating followed 
by intentionally doing one or more of the following in order to 
compensate for the intake of the food and prevent weight gain:

 * vomiting,

 * inappropriate use of laxatives, enemas, diuretics or other 

 * excessive exercising

Webster's Dictionary defines anorexia as,

A psychophysiological disorder usually occurring in young women 
that is characterized by an abnormal fear of becoming obese, a 
distorted self-image, a persistent unwillingness to eat, and 
severe weight loss. It is often accompanied by self-induced 
vomiting, excessive exercise, malnutrition, amenorrhea, and other 
physiological changes.

A woman does not have to be bulimic or anorexic to obtain a slim 
figure. Bulimia and anorexia are two common eating disorders 
that destroy a person's life. The victims overeat and engage in 
vomiting in hopes of losing weight. The weight loss is obtained; 
however, the victim's health suffers. Many women die each year 
from bulimia or anorexia. These are two very dangerous ways to 
lose weight.

If you or anyone you know is engaging in bulimic or anorexic 
behaviors, you should consult your doctor immediately.

All of the movie actresses that you see from Hollywood and all of 
the high-class Paris models that you see in magazines have the 
perfect body. They are thin and beautiful. Their curves are 
perfect, and their smiles are out of this world. All women want 
to look and be like these actresses and models.

However, what women fail to see is that the pictures you see are 
not real pictures of the actual person. They are pictures that 
have been edited, changed and/or altered in some way to make 
these women look flawless. Yes, they are thin and beautiful in 
real-life; but there are a lot of tricks that the photographer 
can use to make these women appear to be perfect in the pictures.

Women are actually built to have curves and a higher percentage 
of body fat than men. It is ok to be a little overweight. 
There are hundreds of beautiful and successful women who are 
overweight. There are healthy and safe ways to lose weight. 
Three ways that a woman can lose weigh successfully are:

1.) Eat smaller portions of healthy foods. Reduce or eliminate 
junk food or foods that are high in oils, fats, and calories

2.) Exercise regularly. Visit your doctor before starting an 
exercise routine. It is exercise 20-30 minutes per day. Walking, 
jogging, doing sit-ups or aerobics are great exercises that help 
shed unwanted pounds

3.) Take a dietary supplement. One dietary supplement that is 
worth exploring is called Zyroxin(tm)  and is available at  and at Amazon. This product can help 
curve your hunger and help you lose weight. Another product that 
attacks weight loss on multiple fronts is Zalestra (tm) also 
available from

You do not have to risk your life to be skinny and beautiful. 
You should never engage in bulimic or anorexic activities because 
this will only harm your body and these conditions can be 
fatal. Eating right, exercising regularly, and taking dietary 
supplements are three of the best ways to lose weight.
