Rob just posted a good calculator on another forum topic. It shows you how many calories you need to stay above your basal metabolic rate and below your total energy expenditure.July 8, 2013 at 7:24 pm #7801MoonflowerParticipant
Check this out! (Also got this reference from Rob.)
“While most recommend eating as little food as possible and doing as much exercise as one can bear, Taking Up Space advocates finding the MAXIMUM amount of calories and minimum number of paranoid restrictions that still gets results.
In the book, Go Kaleo talks about her incredible 80-pounds of slow, effortless, hunger and craving-free weight loss that never came back ? all on a steady diet of 2800 calories a day with a few good workouts a week. No big cravings for carbs, meat, fat, or sweets ? as these were things that she was eating in ample abundance every day.
After reaching a healthy goal, what did she do? She increased calories even more only to find that this allowed her to build toned muscle and shed more fat than ever before.”
So it is eating less and exercising more, initially, but with a different emphasis. Instead of trying to eat as little as possible, you eat as much as you can without gaining. That’s a completely different approach and mindset from thinking you’re doing better by eating less. So now I have to learn how to count calories after all, not in order to starve myself, but to know how to go to the edge of what I can eat without going over the edge. I’ve always known that’s how it works, but didn’t know how to determine where the edge was.December 6, 2013 at 5:13 pm #14153seoadsageParticipant

Celebration Saunas Far Infrared Saunas
For nearly 40 years, far infrared saunas have been studied and recommended by medical professionals around the world for conditions such as chronic pain, heart disease, fybromyalgia, arthritis, detoxification, & sports therapy. Far infrared saunas are the all natural method to improve and maintain overall health. And now owning and In-Home Infrared Sauna has never been easier or more affordable. Join us at http://www.celebrationsaunas.com and learn about the amazing health benefits of far infrared light on the human body.
What is a Far Infrared Sauna?
Far Infrared Saunas work on a principle called radiant heat. Celebration Infrared Saunas are tuned to the resonant frequency of the human body. The human body emits far infrared light in the form of body heat and measures at approximately 9.4 microns. Body Heat or Far Infrared Light is the most natural method to heat the body. Just as skin to skin contact is important for a newborn baby or a person suffering from hypothermia, body heat is the natural, safest and most efficient means to raise the core temperature of the human body.
A Biophotonic Far Infrared Sauna gently and safely warms the body to promote healing at the cellular level. Infrared rays are selectively absorbed by cells and tissues needing a boost in their output. The internal production of infrared energy that normally occurs at the cellular level within our tissues is associated with a multitude of healing responses including fever. A boost of infrared energy to a maximum level ensures the fullest healing response possible in a tissue which is being repaired. After boosting a tissue to its maximum capacity for infrared energy, the remaining rays pass on harmlessly.
Often when we are feverish, the body sweats to eliminate viruses, infections, and toxins throughout our body using our skin. Our exclusive Biophotonic infrared technology penetrates the body 2-3 inches and induces a mild fever raising the core temperature of the body to just under a 100.0 degrees. At this temperature the body does amazing things. First it uses the excess body heat or far infrared light to charge individual cells causing them to vibrate and eliminate harmful toxins expelling them throughout the body’s sweat glands. In a far infrared sauna 20% of our sweat contains toxins being released from the body. Far Infrared Light is absorbed by the body at 93%. The body will never take on more Far Infrared Light than it needs.
