During the holiday season it may be difficult to keep the pounds off–alot of people have been hearing about the Noom diet, which is a health and fitness app that starts off by asking users to set up their target weight and record their current weight.
The users then record their daily food intake and activity/exercise.
The app then generates reports displaying the user’s weight rends, calories and nutritional summaries along with suggestions as to the types of exercises that could be done to achieve the user’s desired weight.
Overall, from a study conducted of users from October 10, 2012 to April 4, 2014, and excluding certain app users for various reasons, overall the user’s lost 10% or more, with the highest percentage of lost weight being men.
One of the most important factors influencing the results was the input of the user’s dinner food intake-those that entered that data appeared to lose more weight.

If you have never been to a chiropractor, are you wondering what does a chiropractor do?
First the chiropractor will take your medical history and perform a physical examination, the results of which will determine the course of treatment.
The treatment may include non-force techniques such as an Activator, which gently taps the muscles surrounding the area that is out of alignment or manual force in which the doctor manipulates the joints using controlled, sudden force to improve range, function, and alleviation of pain.
The flexitarian diet is a plan that limits meat and fish, but does not completely eliminate it. The major focus is to add more plant-based foods, and since it allows for occasional meat and fish, it may be easier for people to follow and stick to the plan.
There are different ways to incorporate this into your lifestyle–some people have specific days of the week that are non-meat, like “meatless Monday”–others follow a regimen of every other day including a animal protein. I also knew of a person who followed a vegetarian diet for one week and then allowed animal protein into her meals the following week.
For more details, check out the book, entitled “The Flexitarian Diet”, written by Dawn Jackson Blatner, who developed this plan.
