freddyboy answered question Do you burn more fat doing hot yoga vs regular yoga?

It depends on what yoga you're comparing hot yoga, too. Not all yogo exercises are created equal after all.  So let's say you were doing yoga exercise comparable to hot yoga just not in a space that is of a hot temperature. In that case, I honestly don't think you do burn more fat. I think you sweat more, but sweating more doesn't mean that you burn more fat, it just measn that your body is working on cooling itself down. It's a reaction to being hot, it's not a fat burning response.

The belief that sweating means you are burning fat or are burning more fat is a misconception. Only engage in hot yoga if you think that it will benefit you in other ways beyond weight loss. It's about the whole expereince, not just shedding a few pounds.

freddyboy answered question What is the main vitamin in Kale?

Kale is very high in vitamin K, vitamin C and Vitamin A. It is also a high source of manganese. It is also a good source of vitamin B6, fiber, calcium, vitamin B12, vitamin B1, vtimamn B3,iron, phosphorous, folate and omeg-3 fats. 

As you can see it's really an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals and is also high in fiber. It's very good for you, which is why so many people lable kale as a super food. 

Kale can be great for your health and it can also be very good in supporting your weight loss efforts. That said, I would recommend that if you want the biggest benefit from it, eat it as fresh as possible and eat organic. The best way to to do this (if it is posible for you) is to grow your own kale.

freddyboy answered question What is the best fitness tracker for kids?

There are actually a lot of great fitness trackers for kids. Here's a list of 10 of them that I could find that were rated pretty high by more than one customer: Nabi Band, KidFit, LeapFrog LeapBand, Omate Wherecom K3, Unicef Kid Power Band, Garmin Vivofit Jr, Sqord Activity Tracker, Fitbit Zip, MILO Champions Band, Adidias Zone.

I highly recommend that you check out every one of these gadgets and then pick out the ones you like best and then from your approved list, see which of those is of interest to your kid. 

Personally, I think it's great that there are fitness trackers for children. It's important that they pay attention to thier activity levels and learn to understand the importance of staying active and healthy.

freddyboy answered question Does Grape Seed Extract help to regulate sugar and is it from grapes?

Some studies have found that it may help to lower blood sugar and glucose levels in people with diabetes miletus. Grape seed extract is also believed to be high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Studies have also found that the bioactive phytochemicals in grape seed extract may inhibit the fat-metabolizing enzymes lipoprotein lipase and pancreatic lipase.This suggests that it may be helpful in regard to limiting dietary fat absorption as well ast he accumlulation of fat in adipose tissues.

That said, it's important to remember that there isn't sufficient evidence to know just how grape seed extract works or its effects on controlling blood sugar or limiting the absorption of dietary fat. What's more, this extract may not be safe for people who are presently taking blood thinners as grape seed extract may thin the blood and increse the risk of bleeding. It is also not safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women. What's more, side effects associated with it include dry/itchy scalp, hives, nausea, headache, indigestion and high blood pressure.

freddyboy answered question Is there a weight loss spa age limit?

Um, I think this would be a question you'd need to ask the facility where you intend to have the experience. They may list this on their website (if they have one) but either way you should be able to contact them to find out. That said, I would guess that most of these spas are for adults 18+.  I would think that if a weight loss spa for children woudl be one that was designed differently to 1 - keep the kids motivated and interested and 2 - the type of recommendations a child would need compared to an adult are likely very different.  Still, I recommend just asking.

freddyboy answered question What is the best vitamin to speed up your metabolism?

In addition to B vitamins, other vitmains that can be good for boosting your metabolsim include vitamin D. Not only is this vitamin critical for healthy immune function but people who take Vitamin D supplements have been found to lose significant more abdominal fat than those who don't take it. As for minerals, Iron and Magnesium are really good for boosting metabolsim as well. Getting sufficient amounts of iron and magnesium can lead to higher energy levels, making it easier for you to keep up with an active lifestyle and exercise.

freddyboy answered question Will my weight come back after taking prescription diet drugs?

Whether or not your weight comes back after you take prescripton drugs is entirely up to you. Prescription drugs are not a long-term solution. They are meant to provide you with potent short-term help (usually no longer than 12 weeks) so that you can adopt the necessary lifestyle changes required to lose weight (e.g.eating, exercise and behavioral changes).Once you've adopted these changes, you need to stick to them, even after you no longer take the diet pills. You will manage to maintain weight loss and even continue losng weight if you continue to maintain the changes. If, on the other hand, you go back to your old habits pre-prescription diet drugs, yes, you can gain all the weight back and even more.
