The problem with our body is there is no way to tell it to stop storing calories. All excess calories will be converted into fat no matter how much fat you have in your body already. So a diet is supposed to help you lose those extra calories.
A diet is an eating plan where you would control the amount of calories taken. Eating less is not the only way to diet. Since the goal is to eat fewer calories, you can have constant food but it is low on calories. So food like fruits or vegetables is low on calories if you compare it on the same amount with other food like meat.
When you are dieting, you will be eating less than normal. So you would feel hungrier throughout the day and feel more unsatisfied when you finish your meal. It cannot be avoided since you are after all trying to lower your calorie intake. Do not be mistaken with skipping meals or starving yourself. Those will only worsen your diet conditions.
When you are on a diet, don't think that you will be having water and vegetables to last for the whole day. Diet actually promotes eating a balance meal. You only want to have a lower calorie count but the rest of the nutrients shouldn't be ignored.
Krav Maga is the official martial art and reality-based, self-defense and defensive tactics system of the Israeli Defense Forces. Their soldiers are men and women aged 18 to 51, so their fighting system focuses on techniques that are:
1) Based on instinctive movements, so they are easy to learn and easy to remember under stress
2) Not dependent on size, strength, or special physical ability, so Krav Maga techniques can be used effectively by men and women of all ages
Krav Maga as a martial art is designed for short-term training. The assumption built into Krav Maga is that people will not have time to become career martial artists.
Krav Maga Alliance is composed of Krav Maga schools, instructors, and students dedicated to improving themselves and each other through realistic training and the continuous exchange of ideas. We have affiliates all over the world, from Australia to Italy. Krav Maga Alliance is headed up by John Whitman, 4th degree black belt, author of best-selling Krav Maga books, and recently named in Black Belt magazine as one of the seven martial artists “defining the new standard for the 21st century.”
With Krav Maga Alliance Touch for Android you can stay up-to-date on Alliance events, find and contact Alliance schools, read exclusive, mobile-only blog posts from John himself, as well as browse and watch exclusive, mobile-only videos.

Using this app you can participate in Awareness Training (AT) according to Andries J. Kroese. Mindfulness is intentional awareness. Therefore mindfulness training and AT are closely related.
AT is concerned with alert relaxation of mind and body, but even more so with reprogramming the mind/body from negative thoughts and habits to a more stress reducing lifestyle. AT is a self-developing process by being aware of our thoughts, feelings and behavior. The type of awareness we are using was called by J. Krishnamurti “choiceless awareness”, a way of looking at the events of living with an open, non-judgmental mind.
With AT we practice to accept the waves of life, instead of protesting against them. We learn how to surf on them, using their energy to get into the flow of life. The key to this is living in the NOW, the present moment from moment to moment.
To be able to keep our balance in stormy weather, we have to set aside time to practice AT under quiet, peaceful circumstances.
In this app you will find practical awareness exercises which you can use for your personal training:
1. Introduction (3:58 min)
2. Awareness meditation (23:42)
3. Body scan meditation (18:04)
4. Awareness yoga (24:11)
5. AT in daily life (3:55)

Can you imagine an app can test your breathing rate? Breath Health Tester appears! It can help users test the breathing rate, degree of evenness of breathing and also calculate the trend of your breathing health.
[How does it work?]
The principle of this app is based on the air flow produced when breathing out. Users should keep the microphone closed to nose and then when breathing out, the air flow will reach to mic and make big sound. When breathing in, since there is no air flow out, the mic will receive little sound.
[How to use it?]
In order to reach to the accurate result, users should follow these steps. Step 1: before starting the app, find a silent place. Step 2: Keep the phone close to your nose, make sure the air flow can reach to the mic. Step 3: press start button, and begin to test. Since the respiratory rate may vary according to the different states such as running, sleeping, the standard we choose is the calm state. So be sure to keep calm before testing.
Hope you enjoy it!
Are you stressed sometimes? Would you like to control your nerves before a job interview, an exam, an important date ...? We offer you a way to relax by controling your breathing.
We present you with a relaxing image and a sphere. The idea is for you to put a finger on the sphere and focus on breathing in / out while you slide it up and down, keeping it within the moving panel that guides the inspiration and expiration rate and amplitude.
Breathe application will set the pace, you just have to try to follow it.
Focusing on this simple movement will help clear your mind and will open the door to the benefits of relaxed breathing.
Why move the sphere? To divert the concentration of your mind to this movement and quieten your thoughts. Try it.
You may need a while to get used to relaxed breathing as in the modern world we all tend to hyperventilate because of the high levels of stress in our lives.
Once you get used to relax with this application, you can take your peacefull haven of tranquility on your mobile device wherever you go.
Once you access the application Breathe pressing Menu > Settings you can adjust the pace and depth of the breathing guide, you can also change the background image.
It has a Relax mode, that you can turn on or off at any time, that will make the breathing guide become slower until reaching a relaxed rate.

Added option of removing the sphere.
Adapted to honeycomb tablets.

CBT-i Coach is intended to augment face-to-face care with a healthcare professional. It can be used on its own, but it is not intended to replace therapy for those who need it.
CBT-i Coach is based on the therapy manual, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia in Veterans, by Rachel Manber, Ph.D., Leah Friedman, Ph.D., Colleen Carney, Ph.D., Jack Edinger, Ph.D., Dana Epstein, Ph.D., Patricia Haynes, Ph.D., Wilfred Pigeon, Ph.D. and Allison Siebern, Ph.D. CBT-i has been shown to be efficacious for insomnia for both Veterans and civilians.
CBT-i Coach was a collaborative effort between VA’s National Center for PTSD, Stanford School of Medicine, and DoD’s National Center for Telehealth and Technology.
experience (for example, combat, deployment experience, or sexual assault), the PE Coach mobile
application (app) may be part of the solution. PE Coach is designed to be used during psychotherapy
provided by a behavioral health professional who is trained in Prolonged Exposure (PE) therapy. By
itself this smartphone app is not sufficient to treat posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PE Coach is
not a self-help tool. However, military Veterans, Service members, and others with symptoms of PTSD
who are receiving PE treatment can work together with their therapist to use the tools in this app
during PE therapy to process the traumatic experience and reduce anxiety and fear.
The app will guide you through the exercises assigned by your therapist and allows you to track and
record your progress in treatment. In addition, the app provides you with techniques such as controlled
breathing that will help you tolerate and decrease your distress. PE Coach will help you remember and
track your upcoming therapy sessions. You and your therapist will be able to audio record your sessions
directly onto your phone so that you can review them later as part of your treatment.
This app is based on the Oxford University Press treatment workbook for PE, “Reclaiming your Life
From a Traumatic Experience”. The app was designed with military Service members in mind but will be
useful to any trauma survivor participating in PE treatment.
