However, these books contain so many of weight loss plans that one gets confused as to which one would be best suited for him or her. To avoid confusion and to help you find the most preferred one for you, I am going to give a brief introduction of the most common free weight loss plans relied upon today.

Atkins’ New Diet Revolution by Dr. Atkins: Underlying principle of Atkins diet program is to be low on carbs and rather consume the food items containing proteins, which means, vegetables and meat are allowed but there is a strict no to foods like bread and pasta. However, there is a liberty to take in fats. So you can still enjoy salads and butter. Grains and fruits intake is also restricted to some extent. This diet plan however leaves you low on fiber and calcium while still high in fats.

Carbohydrate Addict’s Diet by Drs. Heller: while it is ok to take, fruits, vegetables, meat, dairy products, grain and meats, you are not allowed to take in carbohydrate rich food. Thus fats and saturated fats intake is higher.

Choose to Lose by Dr. Goor: The food limited in fats is to be consumed. You are allowed to spend a specific restricted “fat Budget” as you like. You are not restricted to take in carbohydrates and it is okay to eat meat, and low fat dairy products and seafood. Vegetables, fruits, cereals, bread and pasta are also allowed. So it gives you more choices and that too healthy ones. You don’t starve on vegetables, fruits and saturated fats. However, triglyceride level is to be kept under control. If it is high, you have to cut down carbohydrate intake.

The DASH Diet: it allows you to be high in carbs while being moderate in fat and protein intake. The diet is specifically beneficial for those who suffer from high blood pressure. It is designed into a pyramid plan. Whole wheat grains are to be taken in high percentage, along with fruits and vegetables and it asks the dieter to be low on fatty dairy products.

Eat Right for Your Type: This interesting diet plan suggests different food for people belonging to different blood groups. E.g. people with O blood group are advised to take high proportions of meat. However, some of these plans are imbalanced and low in calories. Moreover, scientifically it has not been proved there people from different blood groups have different dietary needs.

The Pritkin Principle: it makes you eat or take low calories by focusing more on liquid intake which makes you feel fuller. Vegetables, soups, fruits, pasta, oatmeal, low fat dairy and salads are allowed. However, protein intake is restricted by allowing only seafood, poultry and lean meat. Though it is low in calcium and proteins, but still it is a moderately healthy plan because high fruits and vegetables and low amount of saturated fats is advocated.

Volumetrics: based on low calorie food. Everything else is the same as in Pritkin Plan, except that it says no to dry foods and fatty foods like pop corns, crackers and pretzels. It also recommends breathing cleaner air with the assistance of an air purifier like the Honeywell 50250 S. It is much healthier plan due to high percentage of fruits and vegetables and being low in saturated fats and calories.

The Zone: You need to be a bit low on carbs but at the same time a bit high on protein intake. Low fat protein rich foods like, chicken, fish, vegetables, fruits and grains are allowed. It is low in calcium though.

Weight Watchers: advises you to be high on carbohydrates and moderate for proteins and fats. It gives you the liberty to design your own meal and is a healthy diet plan.

Now when you know the basics of popular free weight loss plans there should not be a need to spend too much on the other expensive ways of getting a fit body. However, try to incorporate some physical exercise too into your daily routine in order to make these free weight loss plans even more effective.

The True Cost of a Good Cystic Acne Cure


Good Friday morning visitor! Well, if you must know – I’m feeling much better today than the last two days. My incision hurt like hell yesterday morning as expected, but today the pain is about one half of what it was yesterday. But I’m still very sore, and my little pain pump is almost dry too, my girlfriend will be removing the pump’s delivery tube later tonight for me. Hats off to whom ever came up with this idea, it’s a little 125 ml round plastic container that holds pain meds.

The darn thing works so incredibly well, I’d have been in a bunch more pain without it. Also, I’ve been popping Tylenol #3 with Codeine yesterday and last night too, what a life saver! I like the little buzz they give me, it’s kind of like a beer buzz. That’s bad huh? heh… The real life saver here is my girlfriend though. God bless her heart. Not only has she cooked and cleaned for me, but also she has changed the dressing on my wound once, and will change it again tonight after the pump is out and I finally can get a shower too. There are angels among us! An angel she is…

I’ll be back to work on my tea tree oil cystic acne cure in just under two weeks, and I’ll definatly be good and ready for work by then – it’s rather boring just sitting about all day with the remote control in hand and a cold drink in the other whilst my incision continues to throb away the hours. Uhg! I’ve not been sleeping well either, having to get up and pee every two hours or so. This whole problem with the hernia has certainly aggrivated my bladder and urinary tract. And my back too.

It could be worse!! Far worse. But I’m dreading the bills I’m about to receive in the mail from the hospital. I have a $150.00 bill for sure, but possibly about $500.00 or so in co-pays to be met for deductables. Sucks, but at least the insurance is covering most of it and I absolutely couldn’t go without the surgery either. I’ll have to head down to the hospital next week some time and sit down with the accounting department and set up a payment plan until this winter, when I’ll likely be able to pay off the entire remaining debt all at once.

Money makes the world go ’round? Money is the root of all evil? Take your pick. But we all spend our lives on a continuous quest for it, then we die and can take not one penny of it with us. So what value does money really have?? None what so ever. How we live our lives and what we do for others is more important.

—> Two thumbs down to the U.S. government for approving the “morning-after” pill. As the article states, this is indeed another step in the moral decay of the United States. In my world, only he who creates life, God the father, has the right to take a life. Anything else is purely murder and has nothing to do with “reproductive rights”. Michigan’s Planned Parenthood is leaping for joy over this disgusting decision. They call this “women’s health”. But Planned Parenthood should call themselves “pro-murder”, as should those women who favor abortion. No matter how you look at it, abortion is murder. God help those who are in favor of the murdering of innocent children. Murder is an evil thing indeed.

—> Two thumbs up to cystic acne diet for they’re planned random strikes against Northwest Airlines. This folks, is what the public gets for having to deal with these damned unions. If you are a regular visitor to Michigan Blog, you would know my position on unions, any of them. The day of the union has long since passed. Gone are the days when auto workers and others worked extreme hours for peanuts in pay. The unions are these days, nothing more than a way for these people to try and strong-arm any corporation into getting what they want. Sounds like extortion to me…

Union executives are all too often nothing more than a bunch of thugs, who take union dues and fail to use those dues in a way that those who pay them would like to see them used. I hope that one day, the U.S. will be free of the unions that cause so many problems for these corporations. Realistically, isn’t the airline industry under enough pressure these days with attempting to keep they’re passengers safe from a bunch of middle eastern towelheads who want nothing less than to murder innocent people? Add in the damned unions causing havoc for the airlines with they’re rediculous demands for this and that. The day of the union has long since passed away.

—> Detroit wants business as usual, rallies for Granholm. I’m telling you right now folks, until Detroit can find some REAL leadership, and get the democratic thinking out of the way, the city of Detroit will not begin to recover from it’s problems. My left sidebar claims that liberalism (democrats) is actually Socialism in disguise. I still believe it’s true.

Don’t misunderstand me, I like Detroit – it’s a great city still, but until some major changes are made in it’s leadership, nothing will get much better in the city. The first step is to get Republican or Consrvative leaders in office. But this isn’t likely to happen is it… Sad thing. Jennifer Granholm has had years to show the people of Michigan and Detroit what she can do. All I’ve seen this governor accomplish is to continually ask everyone to lower they’re flags to half-mast because unfortunatly, another soldier from Michigan was killed in the middle east.

How Cystic Acne Is Affected By The Weather


Or so it seems… It’s just a large snow squal passing over, but it sure looked great. And it also was just enough to send me home for the day too. To hell with this, I can work on it tomorrow, it’ll all be there waiting, I assure you. I was out on the north section attempting to blow some leaves into the crick when this little dandy started up and proceeded to get me all wet and shivering. Enough was enough, so here I sit! Ahhh yes, Michigan living has it’s moments.

Today is also the first day I’ve had to use a treatment for cystic acne this season, to any great length due to the fact that it’s now nice and cool out there at a current temperature of thirty two point five. Yes! I’m a warm person… By this I mean that ever since I can remember, I am usually very warm to the touch, and tend to overheat easily in the summer months. Ask anyone who knows me well. Because of this, I have always liked the cold weather. It feels cool and comfortable to me during winter, when properly dressed. Michigan is indeed the place for people like me. Let it snow!

This beats sweating your butt off… Cold is goood!

Blown Out…

This morning on the way home from my girlfriend’s place, I noticed that something sounded really bad in the right rear of the car. I suspected, and quickly verified by stopping and having a look, that my right rear tire had gone totally flat. Fortunatly, I was about one eighth of a mile from a tire store that was just opening up for the day. Seventeen bucks and a patched tire later, I was headed home after eating breakfast down the street whilst they repaired my blowout.

It was a piece of steel that got rammed into the tire somehow. Could be worse. All of my tires are shit on that car, and the guy at the tire shop noticed it too, but he won’t be selling me new tires because the lease on this car is about eleven thousand miles from the turn-in time. Sorry buddy, no sale! Funny how every day of our lives are so different… Thank God for this.

Content, Please?

Since I decided a few days back to remove literally and figuritively, all the politics from Michigan Blog, I’ve come to realize that I may well not be posting too much any longer. That is to say that I’ve simply run out of post material. My life with the daily working and stuff around the house is just not enough to keep anyone coming back I have to say. What do you think?? My life is pretty dull man, and the best part of any day these days is when I’m with my gal. Mmmmm. Yummy.

So if there is nothing new here several days in a row, now you know why – I’m working on how to get rid of severe acne. Especially you, Craig! You are one of three loyal visitors to this site that I can verify. Others are lurkers, and there are a lot of them too. But that’s ok. I don’t mind that, but having the guts to leave a comment once in a while would be nice too. I don’t bite, lurkers, really I don’t! Except my girlfriend. Heh…

Well people, time for me to get cleaned up and head out of this place… I’ve got to go get a flu shot today, and pay three more bills that happened to pop out of noplace yesterday. Shit. I’ll be at T’s place tonight – again. I have some chicken to grille, and some home made french fries American Fries to make for her and her son tonight. Oh, and some Zima to drink too.

Have a fine day people, I’m back here later… Maybe.

Important Steps to Take if You Have Cystic Acne


Cystic acne is considered by dermatologists to be one of the most serious forms of acne, and anyone who has it should always seek treatment from an acne expert.

What Causes Cystic Acne?

What causes cystic acne? Though not all of the causes of cystic acne are fully understood, we are aware that cystic acne involves a closed sac comprised of a tissue containing semi-solid substance, and a gaseous fluid inside of it. The cysts can come in a range of different sizes which reach up to about 5 millimeters and can appear on any part of the body.

Even after the cysts are gone, they can form a scar which can be a source of long-term embarrassment. Most dermatologists have categorized cystic acne as one of the most dangerous forms of acne simply because the topical medications like the Murad and proactive skin products are not able to penetrate down to its roots. Cystic acne may also take a much longer time before it completely heals.

It is strongly recommended to let dermatologists handle cystic acne treatment cases since they can provide oral medicines and prescription lotions which will work better than anything you can get over the counter.

Medications for Cystic Acne

When it comes to medications, Isotretinoin is often considered the most effective cystic acne treatment drug. It is a drug type that is capable of reducing sebum production – which has the power to dry out the acne. Isotretinoin is available in pill form, and it is the only type of prescription capable of curing acne inflammation, reducing excess oil production, and reducing the appearance of clogged pores on the skin. The usual Isotretinoin treatment will last for up to 20 weeks. You likely won’t need any other treatment form when using Isotretinoin, apart from basic hygiene upkeep.

There can be, however, several side effects. Birth defects have been associated with using the Isotretinoin drug, so medical experts won’t recommend the drug to pregnant women. Any patient, pregnant or not, who is under Isotretinoin should keep in touch with their dermatologist for frequent checkups to help monitor any additional side effects.

Another type of drug which is commonly prescribed for cystic acne is synthetic steroids. They help reduce the production of hormones which are responsible for oil stimulation. The cystic acne experts will always recommend having the cyst drained in case the oral contraceptives don’t entirely work. This acne lancing should always be performed by professionals.

Dermatologists discourage squeezing or pricking the cystic acne since it will lead to infection which will actually make it last longer. A dermatologist should always handle any case of inflamed cysts. They will often decide to apply a diluted corticosteroid dose which will help in speeding up the healing process and reduce most of the inflammation. The procedure is usually painless, and significant results are frequently recorded within a week.

Wrapping It Up

Cystic acne is one of the most frustrating types of acne, but there are a number of great prescription medications and treatments which can help. There are also many home treatments which, while not as effective, can offer significant relief for even the most severe sufferers.

Staying Healthy When Everyone Else Is Sick


Nobody likes to be sick, but unfortunately it isn’t always something that you can avoid. Luckily there are some great preventative measures that you can take in order to minimize your risk of being sick – especially doing your best to stay away from others who have already gotten ill.

But what about when that sick person if a family member or loved one? In those cases, keeping your distance isn’t always possible – especially if you live together. Thankfully, however, there are still some things that you can do to hopefully keep the germs from spreading and getting you sick as well.

When you can’t help but spend time around someone who isn’t feeling well, here are some great tips for staying healthy:

Wash Your Hands

The absolute best way to keep yourself healthy when you’re around sick people is to practice effective handwashing procedures. Whenever you can, take a minute and wash your hands using both soap and warm water in order to ward off any germs that may be lurking. You should also wash your hands after any time that you directly interact with the sick person or the items they’ve been in contact with.

Get Protected

Is it the flu that has your family down? If so, you may be better off scheduling to get a flu vaccination. Flu vaccines aren’t right for everyone, but if you can’t afford to get sick (or if your family can’t afford for you to) you may be better off biting the bullet and getting the shot.

Keep Things Clean

Germs can linger all over common household items, so when you’re living with a sick person you need to work extra diligently to keep things clean. This includes the frequent washing of sheets and betting, spraying down countertops and other surfaces where germs can harbor with a disinfectant spray, and make sure to shower on a regular basis.

Don’t Share

This one should be a no brainer, but you would be surprised at how often healthy people share cups, silverware, and other items with someone who is sick. There probably isn’t any faster way to catch the illness yourself, so make sure that you take a few minutes and think before choosing to share something with your loved one while they’re sick.

Maximize Ventilation

Being on a cooped up space with a sick person is no good – it allows the germs to become airborne and spread all throughout your home or office’s ventilation system. In order to reduce the chances of you (or others) getting sick as well, make sure to open windows and doors wherever possible in order to maximize fresh air and ventilation.

Stay Hydrated

When you’re sick, doctors always tell you to stay hydrated – but the same thing applies to anyone who is trying to stay healthy. A well hydrated body is better equipped to fight off bacterial or viral attacks, so if you want to make sure that you avoid getting sick, you need to proactively take care of your body by upping your intake of water or other hydrating fluids.
