Viral Marketing Techniques Every Web Site Should Be Using

Viral marketing can work wonders for any business,

web site or product. It can be a great source

of sales leads, one-way links and targeted traffic.

Yet, many marketers are not taking full advantage of

this ‘viral factor‘ in their marketing efforts.

How about you? Are you using any viral marketing

methods with your web site? Or does the word ‘viral’

make you cringe?

Many people believe ‘viral marketing’ is a myth,

one of those Internet follies that only happens

on rare occasions when some fantastic product or

site comes along.

In reality, viral marketing techniques can be used

by any web site — big or small. They can be used by

any marketer who takes the time to put some simple

steps into place. Viral marketing ‘done right‘ can have

many benefits. It will:

* increase your link popularity (often one way links)

* increase targeted traffic to your site

* build your brand recognition

* create targeted leads for your products

* automate your marketing efforts

Here are some simple viral marketing techniques

you can try with your web site, product or business:

1. Word of Mouth We have all seen this phenomenon

displayed with many products . People spread the word about

some great movie or gadget and suddenly everyone knows about

it. Human nature dictates we tell our friends about some great

product we have bought or found. Nature of the beast, it’s just

the way we are; so why not take full advantage of it?

If you have a web site — put up a simple ‘tell a friend’ form

so your visitors can easily tell others about your great site.

Easy and very simple to do but many webmasters don’t do it.

Similarly, if you have a newsletter, service, product or with

any aspect of your site… just include a few sentences at the

end of your copy, asking very politely, “if you found this

service, product or web site helpful — why not tell your friends,

family and colleagues about it.”

2. Branding Make sure you have a logo on your site or product.

Branding your site is very important if you want your site or product

to be noticed and talked about. For that matter, a catchy brand name

can be a ‘viral technique’ in itself; so try and come up with one

that springs from the lips with a distinctive ring to it!

People recognize brands, it gives them a clear image of your

site or product. Include your brand or logo on every page of your

site and on every product, service, material coming from your

site or business.

3. eBooks Savvy marketers jumped on this new invention

very quickly, they knew the ‘viral’ power of these little ebooks.

Ebooks are electronic files that can be downloaded from any web site and

distributed easily around the web. You can also have other webmasters

or marketers, ‘re-brand’ these ebooks with their own links. High quality

ebooks get passed along very quickly and are great viral tools.

Anyone can write a simple ebook on the topic of their site. If you

can’t write, just get permission to use a collection of articles

from the numerous ‘article directories’ on the web such as

http://www.ezinearticles.com or http://www.goarticles.com . eBook compiling

software (in both .exe or pdf format) is relatively

cheap or can be found for free on the net. Just Google to find it!

4. Viral Software Some simple software products or applications

can be very viral, often passed around or downloaded from the web by

thousands each day. These have to be useful or handy products that the

users will desire: ecalendars, organizers, personal planners, link checking

software, and so on. Many are desktop products that sit on the computer

user’s desktop; prime location in the marketing arena.

And the best examples of this kind of viral software have

the company logo, sales message and contact email — with

LIVE LINKS to all of the above — conveniently displayed

within the product. These simple software programs can be great

viral promotional devices that spread like wildfire across the web.

(get an example of this below in the author’s resource box)

5. RSS Newest player in the viral game! RSS which stands for

‘Really Simple Syndication’ and just by the nature of what it

does; RSS is an awesome viral tool. Originally used by news

organizations to syndicate their news stories, it is usually

associated with Blogs because blogs use an RSS feed to distribute

their content. Good quality RSS feeds are picked up and

displayed by different web sites all across the web.

Since Microsoft has announced the next version of Windows will have

RSS integrated into its operating system, new RSS applications will

take viral marketing to heights that have not been witnessed before.

Alert marketers are already gearing up for this viral explosion.

You should also be gearing up for RSS if you haven’t already. Using a

simple site like blogger.com (owned by Google) will give you a basic

blog and RSS feed to spread your message or product to all interested

parties.

These are just some viral techniques that will help increase your

web presence. They will also boost your traffic and increase your links.

Used properly, these viral techniques will also spread your web

site, product or service around the globe.

How Long Does An Arrest Warrant Last?

You can’t outrun an arrest warrant

Did you think that you had gotten away with that warrant for your arrest because it was issued a long time ago? Perhaps it was even in a different state. If you haven’t been arrested already then perhaps the warrant has been forgotten about – Wrong. How long does an arrest warrant last for? – A lot longer than you might imagine.

Arrest warrants are for life

Warrants do not expire and they do not have a time limit. An arrest warrant will remain active until you get arrested or you give yourself up. It’s as simple as that and if you haven’t been arrested yet then it’s just luck. Give it time and it will most likely catch up with you.

If you have a warrant for a serious felony crime then you can expect to be caught quickly unless you are actively avoiding capture. It’s more likely though, that you have a warrant for a misdemeanor offence like failing to attend court or not paying a fine. If this is the case then it’s unlikely that the police will be actively pursuing you.

Warrants don’t go away by themselves

Just because you have a warrant for a minor offence from years ago and you haven’t been arrested yet, it doesn’t mean that you won’t be. Remember a warrant will last forever unless you do something about it. It will not go away by itself.

One day you will get stopped for some routine traffic offence and the police will take the opportunity to check to see if you have any arrest warrants. You are already in front of them so if they can add you to their arrest statistics for the day then they will. They can do a routine warrant check in no time at all with their onboard computers and if they find your warrant, even if it’s from years ago, they will arrest you and take you to jail.

Most police officers are assessed in some part, by how many arrests they carry out so they have a real incentive to find something to arrest you on. You would be an easy target.

Dealing with an arrest warrant

I’m guessing that if you are reading this article then it’s because you either know that you have a warrant for arrest or you think you have one. You are also concerned that you should be doing something about it before your luck runs out and you finally get arrested.

Once you have been arrested you will be thrown into jail to be released only after bail has been set. That’s when it starts to get expensive so if you can, it’s best to avoid the getting arrested part.

You need to get yourself a lawyer to guide you through the right way of handing yourself in and dealing with whatever it was that got you the warrant in the first place.

Find out what the warrant is about

Before you hand yourself in you need to find out what the warrant is for and even whether one exists at all for that matter. You can get details of the warrant from the courthouse where it was issued. Just give them a call and ask. If you can’t remember where it was issued then you can use an online public records database. Arrest warrants are public records so there is a good chance that you will find your’s online.

Forever is how long an arrest warrant lasts.



Gadgets And Their Importance In Our Life

Gadgets are electronically simplified applications that make work easy. They play a significant role in the common man’s life and we have grown so used to it that it becomes very difficult for us to think of daily life chores in the absence of gadgets. Ranging from a washing machine, a chimney or an electric hub, the churner or simply the television set; gadgets have invaded each and every part of our life and have proved themselves to be useful.

Gadgets and their importance

1. Gadgets increase our efficiency. Before the invention of the telephone or the more recent e-mails, sending messages and letters would take days to reach its destination. The soft wares used for application in the internet and the telecommunication are nothing but technical gadgets. These gadgets actually have increased human productivity in terms of work and made the world a better place to live in.

2. A gadget brings joy to the family. With the advent of web-cam and other video accessories, staying away from family and friends is no longer painful. These gadgets can make distant things come near and makes human accessibility very easy.

3. Gadgets make things compact- Take the example of a Swiss Army knife. It can be used as a spoon, knife, twizzer, bottle opener, fork etc. In a single gadget a user can get the function of more than one product.

4. They help in saving space. Initially in the early years of telecommunication the wired handsets could be positioned at a prescribed position only for connectivity. With advent in technology, mobiles were invented that allowed users the freedom to access calls when moving around. With a blackberry one can also avail internet facilities when moving around.

5. Gadgets are fun! iPods, music systems, video games, DVD and most important of all the popular idiot box of ours-“TV” need no introduction as to how enjoyable have they made our lives. These technical gadgets have the power to make us smile by having access to our emotions and needs. They are instruments that can ward off the feelings of loneliness. They are so fun that it actually becomes very essential to integrate them with our lives.

So, gadgets not only make our lives easier but also save our money and precious time. Buying a single gadget will give us the functions of many. This makes gadgets cheap and affordable. It can therefore be concluded that gadgets are not only important because they make our lives easy but also because we can play with them.



"Polynesian Bodies" – Why Polynesian Bodies Build Muscle Better

Polynesian people are descendants of those early mariners that crossed the great waters and became the original inhabitants of the South Pacific Islands. In order to survive those long cold oceanic journeys, their Polynesian bodies evolved to develop maximum muscle building capabilities as a means of generating and preserving body temperature.

This was a direct adaptation to an environmental factor. Those that could not adapt died, whereas the survivors carried with them genetic advantages, creating a hybrid body of sorts, capable of performing enormous feats of physical labor, on very little calories, and very little water.

Colonization of the Pacific Islands only encouraged the Polynesian body to propagate these gene characteristics, as the early Islanders literally hacked their homes out of the forests with their bare hands. Domesticating wildlife and horticulture, was a herculean feat, and the scarcity of fresh water developed a need for the Polynesian body to store fluids efficiently.

These early evolutionary patterns form the basis of the contemporary Polynesian body. It enables Polynesian bodies to:

1. Build muscle easily

2. Possess unique strength to mass capabilities

3. Withstand harsh environmental conditions more easily

4. Endure long periods with little food and little water

Unfortunately these adaptations also mean Polynesian bodies will

1. Store excess energy more easily in the form of body fat

2. Store excess water subcutaneously

3. Burn calories at a slower more gradual pace

In the absence of the extreme physical labors performed by our Polynesian ancestors, and the readily abundant food in western cultures, it is no surprise that Polynesian bodies have a tendency to gain unsightly body fat. This storage of excess energy was a survival adaptation for the days of leanness prevalent in the island cultures, but completely absent in western cultures.

Here are 3 of the best tips to improve a Polynesian Body

1. Exercise, choosing intense weight training over cardio.

Polynesian bodies are designed to work out with maximum intensity. Once or twice a week is sufficient. If you are weight training 5 – 6 days a week, I guarantee that you can train twice as hard once or twice a week. Another way of looking at it is this: If you can weight train for 90 min’s, I assure you, you can train harder for 40 min’s. Remember that you can train hard or you can train long, but you can’t do both. Always choose to train hard. Intense training triggers the release of muscle building hormones into the blood stream. Jane Fonda workouts do not. Polynesian bodies respond well to incredibly intense training regimes performed less often.

2. Don’t eat everyday.

This one may come as a shock to you, especially if you are Polynesian, but it is true. You may have heard that if you don’t eat every few hours then your body goes into starvation mode, yada, yada, yada. Who came up with this idea, did they get the rest of the day off for such brilliance? It is simply not true. Polynesian bodies have descended from a genetic strain of humans that could survive for weeks without food and rest and very little water.

Early man tracked herds over vast expanses, on foot, and when they finally engaged their prey they could somehow muster the strength and energy, in this depleted state, to run down and kill a beast more than ten times their size. I know one thing’s for sure. Put a bunch of these early hominids in the NFL and they would stomp the snot out of those juice heads. We need to tap into that power, and utilize the body’s stored energy.

The idea that you feel tired all the time, and that you need to eat constantly to maintain your energy levels are fabrications of the weak modern mind that prevent us from exploiting the vastness of our true human potential.

3. Eat real, natural, unprocessed foods indigenous to the islands, and eat just enough to be satisfied.

A Polynesian body can store more water, so drink plenty to discourage water retention.

Organic fruits, vegetables, seafood, coconut oil, taro, along with chicken, pork and beef are the mainstay of the Polynesian diet. These are the foods which Polynesian bodies have adapted to assimilate efficiently through hundreds of years of evolution. Polynesians should not consume processed foods. Canned foods and commercially packaged foods combined with the naturally high fat Polynesian diets create metabolic mayhem in the Polynesian body. Eliminate all processed and man made foods gradually.

Through the evolutionary process of natural selection, Polynesian bodies can become the ultimate muscle building powerhouse, or an unsightly storage system for excess energy and water weight. Polynesian bodies can build muscle more efficiently because they possess slightly lower metabolisms, and have a genetic propensity to store more water. Over 70% of muscle is water. This is a wonderful adaptation for gaining muscle mass, but slightly detrimental when the desire is to burn body fat, and flush subcutaneous water. Polynesian bodies also possess a unique hormonal environment that allows muscle gain to take place more effectively. A gift to the contemporary Polynesian body from their ancestors who survived some of the most brutal oceanic endeavors.

To approach genetic potential a Polynesian bodybuilder should train with extreme intensity, less often, control caloric intake and manage their water correctly.



Couples Making Love Positions – Positions For Better Love Making

In the Kama Sutra manual, it has recorded different kinds of love making positions that couples can adopt during sex. Some of the love making positions provides higher stimulation than the others and it will be good for you to try them out with your lover.

1. The Clip. This position is very easy to execute and it brings a lot of pleasure to both partners. The man will lie down with his legs outstretched. The woman will sit astride him and lean back, so that the man can play with her clitoris while she controls the thrusting movement. The man can just relaxed and enjoy the intercourse.

2. The 90 Degree. This position is best to be performed on a table, with the woman lying on it and her buttock at the edge of the table. The man will then enter her in a standing position. This position is ideal for the man to caress both her breasts as well as her clitoris. The woman should wrap both her legs onto the man’s waist and pull him to towards her. This will cause the pressure to increase, giving both partners stimulating pleasures.

This position starts off with the woman going down on all fours, using her forearms to support herself. The man will enter her from the rear, controlling the thrusting movement with his hips. This position will give a lot of pleasures to both partners as the deep penetration will not only grind and stimulate against the vaginal wall, but also the G-Spot too.

You should explore more love making positions with your partner to spice things up as there may be some other positions that both of you find highly stimulating.

Travelling As a Hobby

A hobby, whatever it may be is definitely a fun activity and a stress buster. There are so many activities people do in their free time and to relax their stressed mind. The common and popular hobbies are Stamp and coin collection, music, painting, photography, reading and cooking. Among long, long list of various hobby activities, there is one interesting, informative and adventurous hobby which is also one of the most popular and loved pastimes. That is travelling.

For some it is a waste of time and money. They argue to use an alternative and read a book or watch a film related to places to be travelled. For others, there is no doubt that a person gets more life experience by walking a mile than reading an entire book. It’s a feeling of freedom, Freedom from routine and a great experience each time. You can make new friends, get rid of day to day frustrations, and give yourself some time to experience something new.

People who like and enjoy travelling have different options to try every time; a crowded market, historical momentum, a lonesome beach, and high hills and many more. The world is so big and there are so many places to visit. Each has a different beauty, various creatures, culture, speciality, language, history, and weather. The hobby of travelling is a hobby of enduring the beauty of God’s creativity and skill fullness.

If you are travelling to an historic place then chose to get prior information and an authorized guide. If you are going to any adventurous place then prefer to go in a group or with trained a person with emergency box ready with you. If travelling to a new country then make sure of having details and include a list of hotels, food, culture, language, laws, travel options, emergency numbers, currency of that region and other many more minute details. If as a traveller you like to have a nice and a planned trip without any hurdles then you are better off planning your trip.

You can take the details about the place to be visited. A wisely chosen spot, or a package will help you reduce your expense, as travelling is an expensive hobby. The planned trip is very helpful for the lone woman travellers. If you are from those who love adventures then the sky is your limit, although, you have to be smart, and informative enough to handle the experience waiting next step. You can enjoy hill walking, hiking, canoeing, caving, water sports, snow sports, and many more adventures activities.

Travelling gives you a great break from your routine and an opportunity to learn a new culture, old history and make lifelong friends. The people you come across and interact with, will give you a new heritage. They may open up your mind from a particular bend of thinking. Travelling is a perfect educational hobby as it helps you learn a lot of new things in life.



Going Mobile to Improve Book Sales

Last week I went with a group of friends to a restaurant for TGIF beers and munchies. The second we all sat down to our table something amazing happened: rather than reach for the stack of menu set upright between the napkin dispenser and shakers, everybody pulled out his smart phone to either check messages or use Facebook or Foursquare to “check-in.” Now, a younger person might think nothing of this, but the moment struck me as a sign that times are changing.

I have worked in search engine optimization for over a decade, back when Google was just a glint in a techie geek’s eye. The things we did to ensure high rankings for websites back then would definitely not work now, in an age where mobile functionality is king. As an author, it should excite you to know that people can read books on their iPhones and Androids with applications from Amazon Kindle, Barnes and Noble Nook, and others. If your books are not available digitally, they may still be purchase via mobile commerce. Regardless of how you offer your works, mobile browsers should be able to properly translate your site content so it’s seen clearly and encourages click-throughs.

How can you achieve this? You have a number of options.

1) Utilize a content management system with built-in mobile plugins. WordPress users have long been able to use a plugin that enables mobile browsers to adapts sites. Recently Blogger initiated a similar feature. Call up this blog on your mobile browser and it’s much easier to read – only disadvantage is that the sidebars are not shown. If you have something to promote, put the links in your post.

2) Generate a mobile-friendly version of your site. Most large sites have mobile counterparts that are called up when you sign on with your iPhone or Android. Twitter, for one, launches into mobile mode when it detects your browser. If you know the CSS, you can code your main site to detect the browser in use and direct the reader to the appropriate pages. If you are not tech savvy, you can employ the services of a web developer to assist you.

3) Utilize a third-party mobile template generator. A search on mobile site conversion will land you several leads that can take your site or RSS and make it readable on mobile browsers. Bear in mind, however, free services are not necessarily free. You may find terms of agreement include insertion of paid advertising in your site.

However you decide to go mobile, do it quickly. If a smart phone user in unable to read your site on a tiny browser, he is less inclined to delve further and learn about your books.



What Does Your Digital Footprint Say About You?

If the recent news has been any indicator, we are becoming an increasingly digitized and virtualized culture, with one glaring and fatal flaw: our inability to realize just how vulnerable our real lives are to the impact of our digital footprint.

Look at Detroit mayor Kwame Kilpatrick, whose life has been turned upside down by the discovery of text messages he sent to a romantic partner (who just so happened not to be his wife). Or consider Arlington mayor Carmen Kontur-Gronquist, “…who was voted out of office last month after she left unrestricted lingerie-clad images of herself up on her MySpace page,” according to New York Times writer Susan Dominus. (When asked why she posted such personal photos of herself on such a popular public website, she replied, “It’s my space,” indicating a naiveté regarding the internet that is at once quaint and frighteningly out of touch for someone in a public office.)

If there is one modern catchphrase that all of us should take to heart in this matter, it’s this: The internet is forever.

Unfortunately, that’s something that a lot of us – especially anyone over 20 – doesn’t quite internalize. That’s what happened to mayor Kilpatrick, who apparently thought that deleting his messages from his PDA was enough to erase them from digital reality altogether. The same goes for former New York governor Eliot Spitzer, who simply failed to understand the ease with which his shady financial dealings (all of which are mediated via internet connections between the point of purchase, their accounting houses, financial institutions and any number of other places these days) could be traced, cross-referenced and exposed.

Today’s generation is at the most risk. It’s not unusual for teens and young adults to post pictures on their MySpace pages, YouTube videos or blog postings that show them passed out drunk, doing illegal drugs, engaging in questionable actions and so on. Many fail to realize the impact that these public displays of poor judgment will have on future employers, college admissions boards and even potential mates. And simply deleting or removing the images and posts provides no protection. Sites like the Internet Archive (http://www.archive.org) (also known as the Wayback Machine) and search engines continually cache copies of older pages, preserving those embarrassing or incriminating images for posterity.

In a world of near-ubiquitous internet access, near-permanent digital content and near-complete archives of cyberspace history, the concept of digital hygiene is increasingly important.

Here are a few things to remember:

1. As I mentioned, the internet is forever. If you upload it, publish it, share it or post it, chances are it will be there until the last server falls. Deleting copies on your end gets you nowhere. A corollary to this rule is that if it can hurt you or embarrass you, count on someone finding it at the worst possible time. Rule of thumb: Never post anything you wouldn’t want your grandmother, your boss or your worst enemy to see.

2. Anyone can find anything. Given enough time, access and interest, a motivated searcher can find anything that is or ever has been publicly or legally available (and hackers can find everything else). Assume that anything – including email, text-messages, purchases, financial transactions, personal data, images and so on – is public, searchable and findable no matter how well you feel you’ve covered your tracks or how anonymous you think are.

3. Practice regular self-search. Google yourself and see what comes up. Go through the Internet Archive and see for yourself just how much of your previous cyber-life is still available for public search. Make a note to keep tabs on what’s available about you, and how you plan to address it if it comes up.

As a last resort, you can sometimes get damaging content removed from some search engines or databases. But don’t count on this to save your bacon if you’ve been naughty. You’ll never get every copy removed from every source. Your best course of action is to simply behave yourself and stop assuming that because you’re one of millions of internet users that you’ll somehow get lost in the crowd. The internet may be a busy place, but it’s also a very public, open place. And if you’re wandering around naked with a beer bong strapped to your head, someone’s going to notice.



Small Bathroom – Decorating Tips

Small bathrooms have their own challenges when it comes to decorating. The design layout for a small bathroom is the first challenge. Space is limited, so you cannot use it lavishly. Very small bathroom design calls for small furnishings, and few of them.

Small bathrooms demand decorating tips that differ from those for larger rooms. Decorating ideas for a small bathroom need not be limited to miniaturized versions of those for large bathroom, though. Consider the following small bathroom decorating tips.

Small Bathroom Decorating Tips

If you are remodeling a small bathroom, these small bathroom decorating tips will help you make the most of your space. Take time to plan before you begin remodeling or redecorating. Layout and decorating ideas are important and simple plans are needed to make them work well.

1. Floor: Use large, light-colored tile on the floor. White or very light beige or gray floor will give a small bathroom the illusion of space.

2. Walls: Choose light colors for the walls. They need not be white or beige, but dark colors in a small bathroom will make the walls “close in” on you.

3. Sinks: Look for small, wall mounted sinks without vanities. These permit more of your floor to show. More visible floor space makes a small bathroom appear larger.

4. Cabinets: Choose cabinets that can be set into the wall. Cabinet doors or open shelves should be flush with the wall surface. Smooth, unbroken wall surfaces make a small bathroom appear longer and wider. Any cabinet doors should be painted to match the wall color.

5. Mirrors: Hang large mirrors. Mirrors reflect space, and make a small bathroom seem nearly double the size. Consider a large mirror above the sink, and one or more additional mirrors.

6. Bathtub: Your small bathroom may have a bathtub. Replacing it with a clear-glass-door shower stall will free space. Or choose a small, extra deep Japanese style bathtub. This comes in a near-square that frees space beside the tub for your wall sink. The tub is large enough for small children. Older children and adults can use as a soaking tub. Add a shower and curtain for rush times.

7. Accessories: RV suppliers sell great accessories for small bathrooms. Over-the-door towel bars hold multiple towels in a small space. Tissue box holders in clear acrylic mount on the wall, as do toothbrush and tumbler holders. Make a checklist of what is used in the small bathrooms of RV’s.

8. Pictures and Plants: One of the most important small bathroom decorating tips is to use pictures and plants. Photos or prints mounted in “floating” clear frames can establish a decorating theme for a small bathroom. Two or three pictures of sandpipers on a beach, for example, can establish the use of sandy beige on the walls. Towels can be sandy beige with a border of marine blue. A shower curtain can carry through the theme. A green plant, live or silk, can be hung in a corner. Use a light-colored basket for an airy look.

Tips for Organizing Bathroom Cabinets

These tips for organizing bathroom cabinets will help keep your small bathroom looking great.

Reduce clutter by reducing container size. Shampoo, lotions, etc. are more economical in large sizes, but do not put them in your cabinet that way. Invest in small travel-sized bottles. Small bottles take less space, and are easier to handle. Fill with lotions and shampoos, and arrange in small bathroom cabinets. Store larger containers elsewhere.

Alternatively, attach a soap-shampoo-conditioner dispenser to the bath/shower wall. This frees the small bathroom cabinet of several items.

Store cotton swabs and cotton balls in small stacking containers with lids. For multiple lipsticks, use a holder – some offer up to 24 compartments.

As noted above, online RV suppliers offer solutions and tips for organizing bathroom cabinets.



A List of Foods That Burn Fat Fast: Go Catabolic

It’s a basic principle of weight loss.

Every item of food you put in your mouth contains calories. If you burn more calories than you consume, you will lose weight.

Some foods, like a piece of chocolate cake slathered with chocolate icing, are high in calories, and take a while to burn off. Other foods, like lettuce, are low in calories, and can be burned off faster.

Your body is always burning calories, even if you’re sitting still and doing nothing. But being physically active helps you burn calories faster.

So, what are the foods that burn fat fast?

Catabolic foods burn more calories than they contain. For example, an apple contains around 80 or 90 calories. But the energy your body uses to metabolize the apple burns about 180 calories. So, when you eat an apple, your body burns off up to 100 calories more than you consumed.

Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it?

Here is a list of high catabolic foods.

Apples

Asparagus

Blackberries

Blueberries

Broccoli

Cantaloupe

Carrots

Celery

Cucumbers

Eggplant

Grapefruit

Lemons

Lettuce

Limes

Oranges

Pears

Peppers

Pineapple

Plums

Radishes

Raspberries

Sweet Potatoes

Strawberries

Tomatoes

Watermelon

Zucchini

Now, this doesn’t mean you can eat a slice of chocolate cake, and then eat five apples to make up for it. What it does mean is, if you are on a diet, eating certain foods will help you burn calories and lose weight faster. These are also foods you can snack on throughout the day, satisfying your hunger without worrying about ruining your diet.
