Achieve your optimal body weight by using our new free online weight loss tools


Let us start by understanding what is meant by “optimal body weight”. Your health should be the most important consideration when you determine your goal weight, so your “optimal body weight” is that number on the scales at which you are likely to be the healthiest you can be. To calculate your optimal body weight your height, age, gender, build (bone structure) and degree of muscular development must be taken into consideration.

Why are more than 60% of all Americans overweight and more than 25% obese? There are many reasons for this, including the ever-present media, the flourishing fast food industry, increasingly sedentary lifestyles of the western civilizations, misinformation and even a lack of education, just to name some of the reasons. What we must realize though, is that after all is said and done, it is our bodies. We live with the consequences of our decisions, and it is up to us to make sure that we educate ourselves well enough to make informed decisions.

It is sometimes difficult to accept responsibility for the choices we’ve made in our lives to date and to recognize when and where we have made certain bad choices. Many of us are offended by the mere suggestion that we do not take responsibility for our actions. We always do, don’t we? Not quite. If we are very honest with ourselves and we take a good look at where we are at and why; it quickly becomes clear that we very often try to find something or someone else to blame for our shortcomings. It is just so much easier to come up with excuses than to accept that we could have handled many things differently. We all use very similar excuses too. See if you recognize some of them..

So… Can you use aromatherapy for weight loss? The short answer is “Yes”.

This is not to say that aromatherapy is a “magic bullet” or instant weight loss cure – there is no such thing. But aromatherapy can be a valuable part of a healthy, sensible weight loss program.

Aromatherapy does two things: It can help manage cravings and feelings of hunger, and it can also address some contributors to weight issues such as stress, anxiety and depression.

The Gabriel Method didn’t float my boat


I found my own response to the book “The Gabriel Method” as published by Jon Gabriel (2007) quite surprising. Somehow the book, and thereby the method, failed to live up to my expectations. This reaction is even stranger in light of the fact that, based on my own research and experience, I wholeheartedly agree with most of the key messages in Jon’s book.

The book just failed to grab my attention, and I found myself drifting off time and time again while reading it. I had to force myself to finish it. Although it’s probably just a case of different strokes for different folks, it is worth noting that one of my friends, who incidentally bought her book at the same time as I did, ended up with a very similar experience.

Having read extensively on the topic of health and general wellness for some years, I have come across most of the views expressed by Jon. After hearing most of them so many times before, it may have affected my experience of the book negatively. It could very well be that someone reading self help and/or diet books for the first time may find this book absolutely engrossing.
