Weight Loss Tips From Asian Diet Expert Cathy Margolin, Founder Of Pacific Herbs

Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) July 23, 2013

Being smart about what you eat is the first step to losing weight, said Cathy Margolin, the expert on Asian diet and herbal formulas and founder of Pacific Herbs, online at http://www.PacHerbs.com[1], and marketer of Skinny Boost, based on the #1 weight loss herb formula in Japan. She said diet herbs for weight loss are popular throughout Asian cultures.

“The use of Chinese herbs for weight loss is common in Asian cultures, such as Korea, Japan and China, where obesity rates are low due in part to balanced meals of vegetables and fish or small amounts of meat, she said.

Herbs are incorporated into cooking and meals are often lengthy affairs. Fast food is not as popular although what might be considered street food commonly sold in small cafes and by street vendors is popular and more healthy as well, including fresh juice, noodles, fish, vegetables and stinky tofu. Eating such snacks or comfort foods is healthier than common fast foods in America, UK and Australia among others, where obesity has skyrocketed.

Margolin explained that the Asian Diet is similar to the Mediterranean Diet but is uniquely focused on a balance of foods with different temperatures and tastes. Bland foods like rice are combined with spicy sauces for meats, soup full of nutrients are eaten at nearly every meal as is fish, high in healthy oils. Wheat and dairy are almost never eaten, fresh vegetables and sea vegetables are a staple at every meal, including breakfast. Red meat is eaten only a few times a month and fresh tofu (not processed) is the most common protein and fermented foods, such as miso and tempeh which improve digestion, are also common in the Asian Diet.

Research shows that the Asian and Mediterranean diets are healthier than the Western Diet that has caused higher obesity rates with related increases in diabetes, heart disease and risk of cancer. The higher fat Western diet typically includes more red and processed meat and few vegetables or fresh foods.

In addition to eating smart for weight loss, Margolins Pacific Herbs introduced Skinny Boost[2], a granule combination of 15 herbs matching the number one weight loss herbal formula in Japan. Typically mixed with water to drink as tea, Skinny Boost is designed to increase elimination by helping the body gently release toxins from the colon, improve digestion with herbs that nourish the stomach and increase overall metabolism.

She said the herbal formula of Skinny Boost[3] is time-tested and dates to 12th Century China. Margolin suggests using it for a few weeks or months, noting a 60-day money back guarantee, and said, “there are no shortcuts for real, long term weight-loss. But you can boost your efforts. Healthy foods, exercise and proper elimination will boost your weight loss results.”

U.S. News & World Report[4] this year reported that Folks in Asian countries tend to have lower rates of cancer, heart disease, and obesity than Americans, and they typically live longer, too. Researchers suspect that owes largely to their diet: a low-fat, healthy eating style that emphasizes rice, vegetables, fresh fruit, and fish, with very little red meat.

A Doctor of Oriental Medicine and Licensed Acupuncturist, in her book Stop Your Bitching Naturally, Margolin wrote, Your bodys natural hormonal balance can be severely affected by food. She added that herbal formulas time-tested through centuries are key tools to maintain a balanced, healthy body, and Skinny Boost offers herbs for weight loss[5] taken as a delicious tea.

Pacific Herbs, based in Los Angeles, California, offers pharmaceutical-grade herbal formulas to medical professionals and consumers nationwide. All of its products are made from 100% natural, concentrated herbal granule form to avoid fillers commonly used in pills or capsules, and are usually mixed with water for a pleasant tasting tea or taken directly on the tongue and swallowed with water. Packaged in air and moisture sealed packets for freshness and shelf life of 4 years, in addition to Skinny Boost, PMS Relief, Pacific Herbs herb pack products include PMS Relief; Menopause Relief Herb Pack for natural relief of menopausal symptoms; iSleep, a natural herbal drug-free alternative for restful sleep, Libido Boost for Him and Her for sexual health, and ginseng-based, sugar-free, caffeine-free Energy Booster.

OM is active in social media where she offers her expertise to help Americans and others about Oriental herbs, at her blog, PacHerbs.com/blog, and at http://www.Facebook.com/PacificHerbs[6], Twitter.com/PacHerbs and with a series of videos on YouTube.com/CathyMargolin.

    What Is Are Some Of Your Favorite Weight Loss Tips? What are some of your most succesfull weight loss tips?? I have my few that I live by, but I am looking for some tips on cutting down. Please only share different/ unique tips.
    I know about all the common ones…. lots of water lots of rest six small meals etc.

    thank you so much in advance!

      Hi CollegeGirl

      In my opinion, no weight loss tips are truly successful on their own. Lots of water is not necessarily a good way, because how much water a person needs depends on the BMI of the person. 6 small meals maybe hard at times, especially when you are stuck at school or office and have no chance to eat, and then you need to eat more when you have the chance. Well, dieting is a good way to lose weight, but then it is hard to stick to a diet. For example, something like this:

      2 egg, low fat Cheddar cheese omelette – 320 calories
      2 slices wholemeal toast with thin smear butter – 200 calories
      Large slice melon – 47 calories

      Spicy Turkey Salad recipe – 304 calories

      Muesli or honey nut Health Bar “Sainsbury” – 180 calories

      Baked potato with 100g “Heinz” baked beans &/or Cottage cheese if desired – 300 – 400 calories (350 average)
      Large helping salad fruits &/or vegetables – 100 calories

      Another weight loss tip is to do interval and turbulence exercise.

      Turbulence Training is a fresh plan that requires finishing three 45-minute exercise sessions each week with marginal equipment. It is an increasingly trend-setting fitness plan with the intention of helping you in the reduction of weight.

      Interval training is the fitness world’s equivalent of a visit to the in-laws. The shorter and more intense the visit, the better. An interval is a short period of exercise performed at a given intensity for a specific length of time. Each interval is separated from the next interval by a short rest or lighter activity. There are no strict rules on how long or how intense the interval must be, however, changing the interval length or intensity changes the way your body works and responds to exercise.

      But people have a short willpower. It may be strong at the beginning but will eventually fade as time goes on- as they realize that going on a diet is not actually as easy as they think it is. Of course, the strength of willpower differs from one person to another. This is the reason why there are people who can actually maintain a diet and exercise program for 1 year and there are people who can only maintain it for few months. Nonetheless, willpower is a big factor that dictates someone whether to continue losing weight or not.

      And in my opinion, besides sticking to a diet and exercise plan, it is the ultimate willpower to stop yourself from overeating that is the #1 tip to lose weight. But that is the hardest part if you are accustomed to eating lots of food even though your body does not need it. It is partly because of the delicious taste of the food causing a craving for more. There are certain ways to fight this craving ad I found one that maybe helpful. It is a type of chocolate that can actually suppress your appetite. It will can provide Good Energy that promotes a healthy weight by providing energy while burning fat. And it helps suppress cravings for sugary snacks.

      Good luck!

      PS: Information on the Special Chocolate that I mentioned can be found on the website in the source box. Recently, they are giving away a one month free trial.

      First off, have a great time at the prom! Secondly, you want to get to that lower weight doing it healthy. 1200 is a reasonable amount of calories, but I’m pretty sure those calories are not coming from all the nutrients your body needs. You don’t want your weight loss coming to a crashing halt! I know all about the crazy diets out there. You don’t have to spend ANY money on a quick fix or gimmick that may not work or work only for a few weeks. I have been on a natural eating plan and I lost 50 pounds in about 5 months. You’re younger, it may be faster. I also incorporated lots of exercise to burn more fat. This way of eating is called Paleo, or the Cave Diet. Eat everything your ancestors ate! If mother nature made it, eat it, if man made it, don’t touch it! It’s as simple as that. Go to the Cave Diet link below. You will lose weight, feel happier, glow from the inside out. Good luck!

    Does Anyone Know Any Good Weight Loss Tips? I’ve been struggling for the past few months to drop the last few pounds I need to fit in my cheer uniform from last year.

      The best advice I could ever give you is losing weight takes time. If you’ve tried and failed many times (which is what I am going through), you have to start slowly. Maybe start cutting out bad things in your diet little by little. You can’t expect to go from eating sugary processed foods and not exercising much to extreme healthy eating and exercising 7 days a week in one day, or even one week. You have to learn to control yourself and that means start small and keep everything under control. Another VERY important thing to remember is to NEVER EVER EVER give up! No matter if you go a whole week eating junk foods and not exercising, that does not mean you have to give up and never reach your goals. Just think, well, next week I’ll do better and get back on track. You have to believe you can do it. You have to want it for yourself and no one else.

      Exercise at least 5 times per week. I suggest strength training and cardio. Let’s say Monday you walk/run for 30 minutes, then Tuesday you would do push ups and sit ups and planks, and squats and then take a break Wednesday and start back up on Thursday.

      As far as your eating you really need to watch what you eat! That is the most important step. Portion control is important. If you normally get a big dinner, then cut the amount of food you get in half and that will help a lot. Another way is to get your plate and only eat 3/4 of the food you have on your plate.

      Eating healthy, lean meats, whole grain breads, and staying away from sugary things and high calorie foods. Always remember that cutting out something bad with something healthy really makes a difference. Drinking sodas and eating candy bars is empty calories. If you replace those things with a whole grain waffle or one small piece of dark chocolate it will really help.
