  • Shutting off blood supply to extremity to protect heart

    24 Oct 2014 | 7:12 am
    Shutting off the blood supply to an arm or leg before cardiac surgery protects the heart during the operation, a study shows. "The heart muscle of the patients who had restricted blood flow to their arm before surgery were able to maintain the same level of energy production during the whole operation, while heart muscle from the other patients' hearts was not. This may be important because heart tissue is dependent on energy to survive, as well as to repair injuries the cells may have endured during surgery," an investigator says.

    (Francis may view my tattoos as mutilation.) Today’s thoughts mesh perfectly with my post about women and OLD-talk. This is not the post Id planned to share. Slotted to share was a blog where I waxed eloquently about Halloween, my love of skulls, and why I fret *not* about candy-consumption or label-reading. That was the plan. Until I stumbled upon a New York Times article & could not get it out of my head. I’m a tremendous fan of Francis McDormand. She’d always stuck me as confident, BRAZEN and unapologetically herself.

    Once upon a time there lived a Misfit and her Mini-Me. Our Misfit was all about taking up space in the world, being big, strong and HEARD. Her Mini-Me, while only 8.75 years old, appeared to follow suit. She, too, loved being brazen strong. She knew she was her own superhero: She loved the SIZE & *BULK* of her burgeoning muscles and would display them without being asked. Frequently. Our Misfit was pretty damn prideful happy. Look at the AWESOMENESS Ive raised. In a home sans-scales so much GREATNESS can happen!! She wasn’t arrogant or judgmental—but she thought she had the…

    When was the last time someone said something to you that Totally. Blew. Your Mind? It happened to me this summer. Here’s the story. I was sitting next to a woman at a meeting, and we begin chatting about our children (of course). She shared that her 14 year-old daughter had recently met her long-lost father who, after more than a decade of being ghost, resurfaced with a burning desire to be a Real Father. The woman was, understandably, cautious. The daughter was, naturally, thrilled. They invited the father to the daughter’s upcoming 8th grade promotion ceremony and hoped for the best.

    I caint lie. I rock the #wycwyc at home. Yep. I used the R-word. I almost find it easy (now) and simple (since it’s become habit) only because it’s been the backdrop to my life for so many years. More specifically for almost nine years (guess who turns nine next month?). I rock the #wycwyc less with the foodstuffs as I’m an intuitive eater.  Although, if I stop and consider it I’m a #wycwyc eater, too. I eat what my body asks for/craves. I listen to my body. I don’t judge it. Whatever I do mindfully is OK and plenty “perfect” enough for me. tiny can…

  • How to Become a Morning Person

    Trainer Andrei
    12 Oct 2014 | 7:32 pm
    Waking up early in the morning, before anyone else is hard.  In my early twenties, my day didn’t start until 10 or 11am sometimes. It felt like the day just escaped, and that feeling alone prompted me to reset my clock and become a morning person. Since I made that change 10 years ago, I never looked back. Why wake up early? Before starting anything you need to have a reason ‘Why’ you’re doing it. Because you ‘want to’ or ‘feel like it’ is not good enough to sustain a habit. Eventually you’ll just change your mind and do something else…

    It’s so easy to justify a missed workout or two. Maybe even three. It’s starts there, and then you start making excuses about your diet . A little bit of cake here, some chips there and then a full blown pizza party. For the most part, I tend to be pretty good about my training schedule and eating habits. If you recall back in 2012 I decided to really clean up my diet and become more focused on my training and other healthy lifestyle habits.  I picked my goals and worked on achieving them.  That hasn’t been the case lately. I’ve been rationalizing with myself why…
  • What is a Kettlebell Good For?

    Trainer Andrei
    27 Apr 2014 | 6:12 am
    Let’s start with brief description of a kettlebell, and what it is exactly. Kettlebell is essentially a cannonball with a handle. The two most common kettlebells are the classic or the traditional type, a ball of cast-iron with a rounded handle, and the competition kettlebell made of steel with varying cavity sizes. The classic kettlebells vary in size as the weight increases. Competition kettlebells are very popular among kettlebell enthusiasts and professional lifters because no matter of the weight, the bell’s size and dimensions always remain the same. Competition…

  • What I Learned By Actually Reading That Drinking Milk Will Kill You Study

    30 Oct 2014 | 2:30 am
    So a study was published the other day in The BMJ. In it authors explored their theory that milk consumption might in fact increase your risk of death and of hip fracture. Why? Well they finger D-galactose, one of the breakdown byproducts of the lactose in milk, which in animal models has been shown to be pro-inflammatory and lead to shortened lifespans and neurodegeneration. Extrapolating from the mouse models led the authors to infer that 1-2 glasses of daily milk would provide sufficient D-galactose for human harm. The authors further assert that not only can D-galactose lead to shortened…

    A little over a year ago our office launched the Family Reset program - a program designed to work with the parents of 5-12 year old children whose weights are of concern. Some parents were worried about their children's potential future health concerns. Others were worried about current weight related bullying or self-esteem issues and weren't sure how best to help their kids. We wanted to put together a program and a team of health professionals to address all aspects of weight - from health to bias, from body image to fitness.

    I know I've said this before, but I need to say it again. I honestly don't get it. I don't get how really smart folks, folks trained to critically appraise actual journal articles, folks for who evidence is reported to be extremely important, regularly tweet out press releases without first having read the study. Press releases are designed for hype and publicity, not for measured and scientifically supportable conclusions. If you care about your audience, and you also care about evidence, you owe it to both to stop, read the article in question, and link to it in your tweet along with your…

So when Panasonic reached out and offered to send me their new Open Ear Headphones as part of the #OpenYourEars campaign,  I was intrigued.   They don’t go in or over your ears, they are worn next to your ears.

It’s hard to quit smoking. But I don’t want the government sticking its nose in my business. I KNOW huge corporations are trying to sell me sugar water. It’s kind of OBVIOUS. There are commercials for it EVERYWHERE!! That doesn’t mean that I want the government to step in and tax it. What I want is to be able to choose on my own. I CHOOSE every day not to drink sugary…

    Food is everywhere. All over my FaceBook and Pinterest boards. I can’t seem to avoid it. But that is EXACTLY what I need to do. I saw this quote today and it really reminded just how great Jennifer Hudson is: Avoidance is a great tool to get away from food in my face all day long. Jennifer Hudson, I Got This: How I Changed My Ways and Lost What Weighed Me Down, 2012 When I read that book, she really inspired me and I feel like I need to go back and read it again. YES! I CAN avoid food. I can scroll past those posts on Facebook. I can unfollow any boards devoted to food that my friends…

    This quote came up on the Random Quotes Page yesterday and I REALLY needed to see it. It reads: Everything that irritates us about others can lead us to an understanding of ourselves. Carl Jung This is the concept of The Mirror. The idea is that the people in our lives are here to TEACH us something. There is something in everyone that is there to teach us. Some people are open, humble and teachable. Those people just see the beautiful in people, learn from it and emulate it. Then there are the jerks like me… I don’t see the the beautiful in people.

Elie Wiesel One of my biggest character defects is a Controlling nature. I want to fix everything. I want to help everyone. If they would all just listen to me and do what I say, they would have an easier life. The problem with this defect is that it pisses everyone off. No one wants to be lectured to. No one wants to be told what they are doing wrong. It just drives a wedge between me and anyone who I want…

    As breast cancer awareness month ends, moms everywhere should know about another danger lurking in our homes: your feminine care products may be making you sick. These must-have tools that every woman needs can harbor unsafe chemicals. The FDA has categorized tampons and sanitary pads as medical devices. They made this categorization thanks to toxic shock syndrome (TSS), a complication caused by a bacterial infection, which can be  life-threatening, according to the Mayo Clinic. TSS has been linked with tampons and, indeed, a number of toxic tampon brands were removed from the market several…

    Halloween is my favorite holiday. I like the the pumpkins, the spooky decor, and generally everything that comes with Halloween. It only seemed fitting that this week I make some organic recipes inspired by All Hallows’ Eve. It was a blast to create and test out my new recipes. These may look spooky, but you don’t need to be scared of this food. There are no GMOs lurking inside these organic meals. The trick to making this week’s organic menu within a budget was cooking from scratch. I made my own organic biscuits and pizza dough, and the savings was a treat. It was actually…

    The weather is getting cooler and a steaming bowl of Easy Organic Slow Cooker Vegetarian Chili with Jalapeño Cornbread Muffins can be just the thing to warm you up. This 2 bean chili is simmered for 8 hours so it’s loaded with flavor and a bit of heat. The only thing better than aroma of a pot full of chili filling the kitchen, is a slow cooker doing all the work for you. It’s the ultimate time saver, and paired with smart preparation, this whole meal takes almost no effort. I made the organic jalapeño cornbread muffins earlier to pair with Avocado and Organic Baked Eggs. I…

    A big part of eating healthy and organic is reducing the amount of processed foods we consume. This can mean a lot more cooking, and even more cooking from scratch. It can be time consuming. Luckily, there are still options that can make the task of cooking a healthy organic meal, faster. That’s exactly what led to my Organic Chicken Apple Sausage and Cheesy Spinach recipe. I spotted Applegate’s chicken sausage and knew it would be a hit with my family. When I buy processed foods, I always go with brands that I trust. I also look at the ingredients to see what exactly is in the…

Mushrooms do have a meaty texture and add a flavor known as umami, that tends to be very satisfying, which makes them ideal to include in pasta sauce, stews, casseroles, chili and other mixed dishes to maintain a rich flavor and texture while reducing or eliminating the meat they contain.

But you can, and should, stuff whatever you like inside the rolled and sliced steak. Matambre is usually cooked on a grill or simmered in wine and broth for more than an hour, but this recipe takes a shortcut by simply searing and then roasting the meat for 30 minutes in the oven. Using this method, the meat is…

    After we have turned 40, we have all noticed that getting rid of that belly fat is getting harder and harder every year. Saying no to deserts is no longer helping.

  • Basic Procedures for Perfume Making

    Barbara Green
    27 Oct 2014 | 9:45 am
    Most commercial perfumes and colognes are suspended in alcohol, usually ethanol. Essential oils can be partially suspended in distilled water or in rosewater or orange flower water. The aromatic material will float on the surface so the mixture will need to be poured through a coffee filter paper before use: that is, unless you don’t […]

    To the highly trained nose of the perfume scientist, fragrances composed entirely of organic essences are little more than primitive offerings to the Goat God Pan.

    28 Oct 2014 | 4:55 am
    One of the positive aspects of working is that a dieter is busy and occupied and, in theory, doesn’t have time to overeat. The office candy dish or lunch out with associates may be tempting.  But generally when hard at work, it’s a little easier to diet.Being at home during the day can be a bit more challenging. However, unless the day is spent eating candy bars in front of the television, it’s probably not as tough as the Dreaded Night Time Eating.The more challenging diet times are often during down times. Weeknight evenings in front of the television; weekends with no firm…

Diet support tools may not prevent a dieter from eating chocolate cake, but they will help the dieter get a handle on how much chocolate cake he/she can have without blowing the diet (that would be a slither of cake).These should all be obvious to everyone but still the tools aren’t the message it is instead the lifestyle choices that are the message and once you get those straight you should be able to always stay on trackDieting Tools Everyone Should OwnReally there are three parts of your life that I…

And there’s no question that sipping a glass of wine with dinner can enhance the meal.However, many dieters avoid having a glass of wine because they fear the calories.  While others enjoy a glass of wine and then find they are moaning on their scale the next morning. What is the real story on wine and dieting?Depending on what kind of wine you drink, a single glass (5 ounces) can range from 90 to 150 calories (excluding spritzers and sangria, which can be a staggering amount of calories).

You can workout as hard as you like in the gym each day, but without that backing of a solid diet, you’re going to fall short. The number one problem that most people face as they go about their quest to build muscle fast is not getting in enough calories overall.  Basically, they barely eat enough to maintain their body weight and expect to actually gain weight on that intake.

But, what if you can’t squat? For some people, injuries strictly prohibit it.  Whether it’s their back, knees, or ankles, squatting is out of the picture.  For others, they are simply not biomechanically built to squat.  Their legs are too long or their calves are too tight and they just can’t complete the range…

My father had decided to set up house with his new wife and my mother was looking to set up house with a new husband. It was the 70’s, that’s how things worked.  This man came in to our lives through one of the most important men in my life, my Uncle Billy. If he was favored in the eyes of my Uncle Billy, he had to be a good guy. I’ll never forget that Christmas Eve in 1971 and he was there.

In my opinion, tracking your workouts (whether it be with a workout journal, a fitness app, or something else) should accomplish 3 goals… It should be quick and easy, so that you can spend your time exercising.

We become so focused on the short-term results that we forget to build the long-term habits that make the real difference. However, there are a few strategies—four of them at least—that will actually accelerate the results you enjoy without ignoring the importance of building better habits. I call these strategies…

    It was my first year of graduate school and my professor was standing at the front of the room. He was telling our class about a mistake he made years before. About a decade earlier, my professor had been one of the senior executives at Sears, Roebuck & Company, the large department store chain. They were in the middle of a massive national campaign and preparing for a major brand launch. My professor was leading the operation. For almost two months prior to the launch day, he was flying all over the country to strike up buzz with major partners and media companies. While criss-crossing…

After long hours at the office, there’s a certain pleasure in getting down and dirty in the mud, or slinging shots back and forth across a court, for just one single moment of sporting pleasure. Sometimes I wonder why such occasions elicit grins from my football kakis and me. After all, there are no cameras in the stands, no fans cheering, no big sponsorship deals waiting. No one will remember that fantastic Lionel Messi-like slalom I made, running past five players and slotting the ball into the top corner of the net.read more

    That office chair, couch, cushion or bean bag isn’t the real culprit. It’s your lazy habit of parking yourself in a spot that is silently ringing the death knell for you. It’s tough to avoid sitting if you work in an office environment (unless you have a standing desk like some new-age workplaces abroad). On your day off, you tend to laze around the house or, worse, be a smug couch potato, chomping on fast food in front of the television as an excuse for leisure.

For virtually all of the people coming to me for help, after they’d complete their big event, they’d go into a ‘rest period’ that turned into an After-Event Abyss (where fitness progress disappeared, not to be seen again). For a few weeks up to a few months after the big day, not much happened. ‘Time off to…

I fell in love with the raw Icelandic countryside, acres of lava fields draped in the most downy moss you’ll ever caress and austere mountains rising sharply out of a treeless tundra snaked with rivers.  There is something untamed in this wild place where man and nature teeter on a delicate equilibrium for survival.

    Over the years, I’ve spotted an interesting trend.  It’s a pattern I see showing up in people’s bodies, in their brains and it’s pervasive in our culture. At the core of this trend is an insidious, yet tiny, belief that keeps people struggling upstream like salmon in a ladder.  It sabotages efforts to lose weight and get healthy, to alleviate pain, and, ultimately to be happy. Shifting this belief from the false to the true is no bigger of a switch from believing that the sun rises and sets to understanding that we’re traveling around the sun on a giant…

    When people consider how they are going to set up their loading, they usually maintain the same amount of training days per week but simply manipulate the amount of exercises, sets, reps, or total workload that they perform on each day. During higher volume phases, more of any of the aforementioned variables is included. On lower volume phases, there will simply be less of each. However, something that isn’t regularly seen is different training schedules for different periods in training. The idea here is to consider manipulating the amount of sessions per week as a matter of controlling…

Is there a way to use these evil insulin secreting carbs to enhance your training performance for more muscle and less fat? It’s a bioenergetic fact that a vast majority of your high volume training in the gym is fueled by carbohydrates (5). As you exercise at a higher intensity, the main fuel that your body uses is carbohydrates, mainly from stored glycogen in the liver and muscles. Ask anyone who has tried a very low carb or ketogenic…

I knew after my performance at Raw Unity VII, that I had the potential of obtaining my first ever raw ten times bodyweight coefficient total at 132 pounds. I missed this total on my last deadlift at Raw Unity and only due to my grip giving out on a 518-pound deadlift.

If you don’t (or if you train by yourself), then start filming your lifts and compare them to what the top guys in the world are doing.

    23 Oct 2014 | 9:18 am
    How do I know when it has been a good training session? When I tell a client it is time for the foam roller and a look of surprise comes over her face. That’s it? We’re done already? It’s not that the workout was easy. Instead I like to think they have achieved a state of FLOW. Perhaps you call it being “in the zone” or being focused. I like the term Flow better. Based on the research of psychologist and author, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, the definition of a flow experience is this: …the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a…

  • Quick Guide to Nutrition During Breast Cancer Treatment

    Pamela Hernandez
    16 Oct 2014 | 8:41 am
    Breast cancer is a battle. Not only are you fighting the disease but also the effects of the treatment. During this time food can feel like the enemy too. Eating can feel like torture, trying to find foods that sound appetizing and that the body can tolerate. In reality, food should be your ally. Nutrition should be an important part of any treatment plan. It is time to think about food as medicine not just critically needed fuel. While every woman experiences different things during breast cancer treatment and recovery, there are some tips that can be beneficial to most who are undergoing…

  • The Benefits of Protein Shakes Post-Training.

    Trish Gardiner
    26 Oct 2014 | 2:13 pm
    When you push through a tough training session your muscles are constantly challenged, and their fibres begin to break down and sustain damage, (not a bad thing).The process of repairing and rebuilding those fibers called, muscle protein synthesis, uses amino acids from protein to encourage healthy recovery and muscle growth (a really good thing). Although any nutritious source of protein will help the process along, there are few clear advantages to drinking protein shakes after exercise. Protein powder is an isolated nutrient source, so it provides a lot of nutrition for relatively few…

    Whether it is used to maximise sporting prowess or to stay fit and active, endurance training is an excellent fitness option. However, it can also be damaging on our joints and various soft tissues including tendons, ligaments and muscles. For endurance athletes, those who compete in ultra long distance events with a view to pushing their physical capabilities to the limit, the risks are further magnified. From soft and connective tissue injuries such as muscle tears and ruptured tendons respectively, the repetitive strain placed on joints, and the massive, and prolonged impact our bones must…

    I stopped trick or treating when I was 10 years old. I didn’t think I was too cool or too old to go. It’s just when I could no longer eat the candy it became a lot less fun. My type 1 diabetes diagnosis a few months earlier meant I had to find an alternative to this much anticipated fall ritual. I honestly can’t recall what we did that first year, perhaps a family Halloween party? It wasn’t an issue for too long however. I become a teenager, way too cool for any activity involving my Mom or family. The fact that I stopped trick or treating didn’t dampen my love of Halloween. I love…

    Beginner’s Guide To Aqua Aerobics My kids have always used our back yard pool a lot – me, not so much. I’ve never been much for swimming, so I’d mostly sit on the sidelines watching the children and their friends play in the water. That all changed when I discovered aqua aerobics. It’s easy to start. When one of my friends asked me how I got started with aqua aerobics, I told her I went to a class at the community pool. When I worked out in the gym, it was like everyone was very serious – no one interacted much. At the aqua aerobics class, it was a completely different experience.

    This is a guest post by Charlie Redants of ZeroPanza.com. We want everything: a perfect body, a challenging job, a great love life, and time for recreation and entertainment. How do you manage all these wants in a twenty-four time period? You have to make choices and prioritize your needs. If you had the time you might spend two hours a day in the gym. But you do not have the time. So you need to be honest with yourself and figure out how much time you can spend each week training your body. After you have made that choice, do not feel guilty about it. With your fitness goals it is much…

    Who else loves chili? Over on the Facebook group, I asked for some chili recipes. Then somehow folks on Twitter started posting them.

My wife and I attempted slow carb a few years ago. I lost 28 pounds in about 3 months and then we just stopped. I was nowhere near what my goal was but we just kept cheating and over time we stopped weighing ourselves.

    As I apologize for the recent silence, I should explain that my family was travelling to Paraguay to visit my wife’s family.  Staying healthy while travelling is a challenge, I can attest.  This guest post by Natalie Athanasiadis addresses that quite well. While you might have a meticulous diet and fitness plan at home, when you’re travelling, it’s a different story. When you’re on the road, your usual routines get thrown off and you do things you normally wouldn’t do at home where you have a regular 9 to 5 schedule and must make nutrition decisions that can impact your…

    You finally worked up the drive that you need to lose that weight that you’ve been telling yourself you’re going to lose for the last couple months. You begin hitting the treadmill and eating fruits, vegetables and other healthy foods. Your progress begins to show on the scale, but then your friend tells you something that makes you a bit leery of losing this weight. They tell you that people who lose weight end up with saggy skin, which you think kind of defeats the purpose of losing the weight in the first place. Lucky for you, there are ways to lose weight without ending up…

    Increasing The Calories Burned When Walking Walking isn’t considered by many to be a great cardio exercise because the calories burned walking is often less than other exercise routines.

    Working out and eating healthy is just something I do. I don’t think about it, it’s automatic. It wasn’t always that way. It took me several years of trial and error to make this a lifestyle. I know that when folks want to make a change they want it to be automatic. I liken making any change to learning a new language. You are not going to be fluent the first day. You are going to have to work at it. The same thing applies to living a healthy life. You just have to decide you want it more than you fear it.

    When it comes to saving time in the kitchen, having everything you need within reach is probably one of the most important things you can do. If you’ve set up different areas in your kitchen, one for prep work, one for cooking, one for cleaning, and one for planning, you know how much easier it is to find things. However, inside those centers lurks a hidden clutter – the pantry. You know that stuff you toss in drawers that you mean to get to someday. That kitchen closet that is hiding a hurried stashing of all your supplies you’ve never used or used once and haven’t…

    Now if my Mom were looking over my shoulder she would tell me that hate is a strong word. Well I really do. When I was competing I would do 60 minutes of cardio. It would mentally kill me. I would hope on different machines every 10 minutes, I’d watch TV, listen to audio books, you name it I did it to make the time go by. Then I started to get smarter about my cardio. The goal of cardio is to get your heart rate up. Did I have to do it by slogging away on a piece of equipment no…. If you are someone who hates cardio like I do here are some alternatives that I have come up with.

    This whole “nutrition thing” can be a confusing, contradictory mess. Depending on who you talk to, you could get a few different answers on how to approach eating: “I’m Paleo, and only eat meat, veggies, fruit and nuts – boo grains!” “Well I just eat based on my macros (Protein, Carbs, Fats) – Paleo is ridiculous!” “Whatever fools – a calorie is a calorie.

    Getting a good amateur boxing match together is never, ever a blissfully effortless ride on the pugilistic merry-go-round. It’s the most complex, chaotic, and frequently emotional mess you ever did see. If all you ever do is show up to enjoy a local fight night it might look smooth, from the outside. But it absolutely isn’t. For the 4 to 6 hours prior to the doors opening at the average amateur boxing evening, there is more anarchy and disarray than a high school cafeteria lunch period on homecoming Friday with no teachers. (Sorry, did I just give you a flashback?) Here’s…

And finally I wrote it all down, since that’s infinitely preferable to madly scrambling around at the last minute, trying to remember what all our boxing team will need once they get to the competitive arena. Btw, I searched the internet and didn’t find ANYTHING to help you pack your competition bag, so if you happen so see something, please link it in the comments.

    We were on the upper NC section of the Blue Ridge Parkway this year, which has more open, rolling pastureland than you see in the “High Country” lower down. The park’s boundaries are narrower in this section — sometimes only a half-mile wide — so in addition to enjoying some grassland “hobbit hikes” along with our mountain-climbing and waterfalls, we also brushed up against more farms, homes, and… well, cows… this year. (We called them wild cows, or cow-bears, in order to feel more daring and adventurous.) The photo above is the view just…
  • How to Work Against the Ropes

    Lisa Creech Bledsoe
    9 Apr 2014 | 11:35 am
    At most boxing gyms you’ll hear coaches tell you to stay off the ropes and control the center of the ring during your rounds. And that’s sound advice. But there’s also some good things to be said about being the kind of fighter who can perform well against the ropes, and even win a fight using rope skills. Here’s what I mean. When you’re new in the ring, you tend to fight your rounds with your back to the ropes because your opponent is controlling the motion and running things from the center. You go where your opponent sends you — toward the edges of the…

The advertisement was “What would you do for a Klondike bar?” It would show people doing various things that people would not normally do for some ice cream. I must admit I love their peppermint chocolate bar. However, the point is to show how their reward of an ice cream bar far outweighed any displeasure to get it. We all have things that we enjoy, crave, or even need and are willing to go through a certain amount of “discomfort” to get them. That is why we work. We need…

How do you prepare for a good death? I think we live in four dimensions at the same time. The physical world, where we can get stabbed in the heart and bleed. The emotional world, where we can get stabbed in the heart and cry. The mental world, where we can get stabbed in the head and get demented. And the spiritual world where we get stuck living in the past, filled with regret and anxiety.

I opted for both because a free massage is a good massage in my book. The regular seated massage didn’t do much for me- the women did not go hard enough for me to feel any benefit even after I asked her too. So while I am not going to complain about someone rubbing my back – it wasn’t the most fulfilling 10 mins of my life. But the shiatsu massage was amazing!

    20 Oct 2014 | 2:00 am
    Did you know that I have only created one recipe with apples? Another classic Fall flavor that I should enjoy more. The problem? I don’t actually like apples. That’s not exactly true. I like apple cider, apple juice, apple sauce, and baked apples. But I don’t like raw apples at all. They look fun, but I don’t like the flavor or the texture of a fresh apple. They look so fun and portable, but I just can’t do it! Disclaimer: Slideshow collection sponsored by Foodie via Mode Media. As always, all opinions are my own and I only share things that I would recommend to…

    Happy Halloween Eve! I love this holiday and the energy that surrounds it. I am notorious for making holiday themed workouts for the gym, and for some reason I find that Halloween is the most fun to come up with. We’re going to be eating our fair share of sugar, fat and just total crap this weekend (which is fine… it’s all about moderation). But it will feel good to get a workout in before and after too! Right? Here’s a fun fact for you… The average kid’s trick or treat bag will contain over 1200 calories, 177 g of sugar, and 32 grams of fat! I can promise you that…

Like we do every time we sign up for a race that’s over an hour away, we drove up the day before. Sure, some people may love waking up at 4am to get to a race, not us. We like to sleep in as much as possible, eat a good breakfast, and drink plenty of coffee in the comfort of a hotel room. So that’s what we did. The race was in a very small town called Winnsboro, SC. There weren’t many hotel options so we choose one in the next…

I tried to cover a lot in that post but by the several emails and comments I received, I still left a lot of room for questions. Questions that deserve answering. So, I did something about it.

Yesterday morning, as my boot campers zombied their way into class (it’s 6:30am after all), I could feel an air of dread. A few of them just weren’t feeling it, but they somehow had dragged themselves out of bed, into their workout clothes, and managed to drive to the gym. Yes, -zombied- is a real verb. The act of being a zombie. I am certain it is in Webster or the Oxford Dictionary. After all words like Po-Po and Guyliner have made it in. What the hell is guyliner? Moving on… So a few…

    5 Ways To Deal With Loose Skin After Weight Loss   One of the most frustrating aspects of losing weight for many men and women is that after months of watching your diet and exercising regularly you lose the weight but are left with pockets of loose skin. Depending on how your body fat is distributed, this can happen whether you lose 20 pounds or 100 pounds and in some cases the amount of loose skin remaining after extreme weight loss requires surgical intervention to be completely removed. That said, in over twenty years of working with people who have lost considerable amounts of…

Not only are planks really versatile and travel-friendly, they also work more than 20 muscles, including your abdominal muscles, obliques, shoulders, quads, glutes, and more. I don’t know about you though, but I can’t imagine anything more boring than just hanging out in a basic plank for minutes upon end. Sure, static holds are great to include in your training (which is why I often include them as a bonus for after your workout), but dang can they get boring pretty quickly. So here…

The first batch I made was just a little too dry, but the second batch? Totally nailed it! Moist with just a hint of cinnamoney apple goodness, a single batch of these pancakes is only 300 calories but will keep you full and satisfied for hours (even if you’re always hungry like I am).

    One of the most popular poets of his time, William Cowper is credited with the quote “Variety is the spice of life, that gives it all its flavor.” Most of Cowper’s work came from his and others real experiences in everyday life. In my opinion the more experiences you can have the better life story you’ll be able to create for yourself. I’m one of those folks that gets bored easily so Cowper’s quote really resonates with me. This leads to me constantly chasing variety in my life. The positive in this is that it allows for a lot of amazing and new experiences. The downside…

Of course, some people never feel motivated to exercise. Others make a go of it but don’t stick with it. A study showed half of all people who start an exercise program drop out after six months. Sadly, they never enjoy the full health benefits of working out. You might wonder why some people are highly motivated to work out while others prefer lounging on the couch with a cold drink and a…

    Are you having trouble taming the hunger giant? What you’re eating and how often you’re eating it could be part of the problem. Skipping meals and making the wrong food choices leads to a constant battle with hunger. The composition of your diet–the type of foods you choose to eat–affects hormones that control your appetite. The best known of these hormones are leptin and ghrelin. Other hormones produced by cells in your intestinal tract, including GLP-1, CCK and peptide YY, also help with hunger control. The situation is clouded further by the fact that hunger and…

They are afraid that lifting weights could cause their muscles to bulk up like men do. Don't worry - this is not a problem.

    Often, a lot of time and effort goes into a fitness regime, so it’s important that one makes the best of it. It is worth planning and tailoring a fitness regime to be specific to the goals in mind – building and toning up requires a different exercise routine when compared to reducing fat and slimming down. A diet is crucial too, and taking the right vitamins and supplements is essential to achieving a healthy balance.Plan Exercise and Dieting Routines In Line with Your GoalsBuilding muscle and reducing fat are the two popular goals for fitness regimes, but the approaches are very…

  • The World of Bodybuilding According to Bros

    Elliot Reimers
    28 Oct 2014 | 1:06 pm
    The health and fitness industry is rife with misinformation and propaganda, leading avid gym-goers to take on baseless habits. Many of those mythical habits stem from what is colloquially known as “broscience.” If you’re not familiar with the term broscience, just know that it is essentially a body of knowledge that bodybuilders (both recreational and competitive) believe to be true based simply on anecdotal evidence rather than being scientifically validated. A quick example of broscience is the ideation that eating more frequently throughout the day increases the thermic effect of…

  • Stress Getting to You? Blame it on Your Reptilian-Limbic Brains and What You Can do About It

    Bob Choat
    28 Oct 2014 | 11:52 pm
    Stress is pervasive in today’s world. So is anxiety. Even Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) has ramped up. The latter may be due to the exposure to 24-hour news events of disasters, pandemic warnings and terrorist threats. All of this has led to the fight-flight response being activated. It’s more like fight-flight-freeze. It’s crazy to think about, but as humans, we’re also animals.  We can regress down to the level of survival. When a threat happens, we react. Heck, when a perceived danger occurs,we react the same as if it was real. Getting yelled at by your…

    For many of us, doubting our abilities, skills and worth happens time and again.  I know, I’ve been there. Even though others around me thought that I was very good at what I did, I still had lingering doubts.  When I coached my top level executives and especially CEO’s, they had the same thing. More than a few doubted themselves so much that they believed they was a fraud. That’s one of the reasons they turned to me to help them get past that way of thinking. Years ago I read an excellent book by Ben Sweetland called “I CAN.”  In it he described the process…

There are probably a multitudes of reasons why this is happening.  From the changes in food sources to the lessening of physical movement are but a few reasons.

It put us on the moon and created computers. It led to the accidental discovery of the New World by Christopher Columbus. It led us from the savannahs of Africa to spread to Asia and Europe.

    19 Oct 2014 | 5:42 am
    One of the first goals, when you’re trying to become more active, should be to focus on the consistency of the new activity rather than increasing the duration of the activity. Most individuals, however, do just the opposite. As you become consistent you can then begin to increase the duration of walking or for that matter, any other activity. In terms of progressing, it will depend on the fitness level of the individual. Whether the individual is de-conditioned or a novice, they will need to determine a baseline with respect to the activity (in this case walking). Start by…

    “A Goal Without a Plan is Just a Wish.”Antoine de Saint Exupéry (Writer, Poet, and Aviator) I was recently reading an article that stated the average length of time that Americans exercise is only 17 minutes. No matter if you’re exercising 17 minutes or much more than that, setting short or long-term goals will hold you accountable and probably keep you exercising longer; giving you more time to let exercise become a habit. This is one of the reasons for having various short-term goals during the month-long 10,000 Step Wellness Challenge. Figure 1. Michael Wood’s…

    Leider war ich das ganze Wochenende krank und somit gab es auch kein Workout für mich . Heute fange ich wieder langsam an und kann es schon kaum erwarten! Es hat sich schon letzte Woche angekündigt und wenn man schon merkt, dass es einem nicht so gut geht und der Körper damit kämpft was abzuwehren, sollte man an dem Tag vielleicht eher pausieren oder zumindest langsamer machen mit dem Training. Ich sage das, weil ich nicht so schlau war ich meinte dann ein intensives Cardiotraining machen zu müssen, was das ganze wahrscheinlich erst so verschlimmert hat. Nun ja, aus Fehlern lernt man.

  • How to Get Big and Strong Without Becoming a Mess

    Mark Sisson
    29 Oct 2014 | 11:10 am
    To gain muscle, we’re told to eat everything in sight. We’re told to drink a gallon of milk a day, or to pour olive oil over a pizza before eating the entire thing in one sitting, or even to eat fast food for every meal – all in the indiscriminate pursuit of mass. Okay, eating that way will get you bigger. And it will make you stronger, so at least some of that mass is muscle. But at what cost? You’ll just have to go on a “cut” to eliminate the bulk you don’t want to keep while taking care not to dip into the bulk you do want. It can certainly work, but what if there…

  • How to Burn an Extra 300 Calories a Day Without Lifting a Finger

    Mark McManus
    27 Oct 2014 | 2:40 am
    A debate has been raging for decades (but especially over the last 10-15 years since the Atkins diet gained worldwide popularity) about whether or not a low-carb diet has a “metabolic advantage” over other nutritional strategies. A number of years ago I interviewed Anthony Colpo about this issue. He strongly disagreed with it. I have a lot […]

    My day dreaming can get pretty interesting.  They are similar to the ones you’ll find in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.  You know, “Down control to Major Tom. Take your protein pills and put your helmet on..” I’ve imagined myself flying over to the bench press, picking it up, and shaking the guy off it like a little cockroach because he was flailing his feet around while trying to lift a weight that was way too heavy for him. Maybe that’s a bit harsh. Lifters think that in order to get bigger and stronger they need to go straight towards lifting heavy…

    The Hawaiian men have lost their way and forgot about their kuleana and roles in the community and family. I can personally relate to this.  I grew up frustrated and angry, which caused me to hide myself from society and made me not want to show or share my emotions.  This is where the gym came to be my sanctuary. I was lucky to be raised by a loving family who kept me out of trouble when I had a lot of influences trying to pull me down another road.  Growing up in Hawaii, if I wasn’t with family and close friends, I was at the gym or the beach.

  • Why Push-Ups are Such a Great Exercise

    Casey McIlvaine
    27 Oct 2014 | 12:42 pm
    The average person gives the push-up very little love in the world of exercises. While it may seem passé and not quite as chic as other exercises that are decidedly less “old school,’ push-ups are truly body altering, core strengthening exercises that can help anyone reach their fitness goals faster. Let’s look at the details of why push-ups are such a great exercise, and why any personal trainer should incorporate them into their client’s routine (as well as their own). It’s clear that push-ups are the best for positioning our upper body muscles for strengthening the forearms,…
  • How to Combat the Risks of Sitting All Day

    There are now dozens upon dozens of studies that show how a sedentary lifestyle is dangerous to your health whether you are young or old, male or female. Sitting all day is just plain bad for us. The question becomes, how, in a modern society that supposedly requires us to sit at work, in transit and at leisure time (in front of the TV), do we eliminate this risk? The potential negative health effects of a sedentary life are legion as being sedentary goes against our ancient biological nature as human beings, which dates back to our caveman days.

  • Why Your Fitness Regime Might Not Be as Healthy as You Think

    Casey McIlvaine
    14 Oct 2014 | 5:54 am
    Although exercise and fitness regimens should be a part of every person’s life, the type of regimen and its intensity are highly specific to each person. Fitness experts are working hard to promote health while also making it clear that rest, recovery, and periodization (smartly modifying intensity based on goals, performance, and ability) are absolutely crucial to optimal performance. The trend towards ever higher intensity training (HIT) workouts is not inherently a bad thing, but neither is it an across-the-board good thing. Not everyone can benefit from HIT, and in fact for many it may…

    Researchers are increasingly finding supportive real world evidence that the duration of some forms of exercise have an outsized positive effect on our health. The most recent research derived from a large-scale study of exercise and mortality shows that running for as little as five minutes a day can have a significant impact on lowering the chances of a premature death. For the last several decades, health researchers have focused on the effects of moderate exercise and its impact on our health. More recently, the focus has shifted to the impact of vigorous exercise in shorter durations and…

    Our friends at NPTI Ohio demonstrate a different way to do a bicep curl in this video. This towel bicep curl move is more interactive than just repeatedly lifting weights. Your partner can adjust how strongly he or she is holding the towels, which allows you to have a variety of resistance without having to switch your weights out. This move also provides your partner with some good strength work, as he or she attempts to add resistance to the towel.

    You can’t out-run your fork. When making the decision to get in shape, it’s also important to look at how your diet may be affecting weight loss. Sugar is one of the most dangerous ingredients we consume, as well as one of the most prevalent. It’s also the leading cause of heart disease, diabetes and obesity – the three largest killers in America today. It leads to rapid weight gain, mood swings, blood sugar spikes, and it is incredibly addictive.

    It’s not enough to simply exercise. We also have to do it correctly if we want to see real results. Unfortunately, the vast majority of us aren’t working out optimally, especially when it comes to strength training. There is a lot of misunderstanding of the “what and how” of lifting weights, and that prevents people from reaping the rewards of their labor. Just look around next time you’re at the gym. You’ll see the same people doing the same exercises, looking exactly the same, year after year. I get really frustrated when I see all these people investing their valuable time and…

  • Getting Back to Exercise from a Lower Back Injury

    NFPT Staff Writer
    29 Oct 2014 | 1:49 pm
    One of the major concerns for anyone recovering from an injury is the possibility of re-injury. This holds true especially for recovering from lower back problems. Re-injury may occur because of inadequate reconditioning and rehabilitative exercise.When an injury requires a layoff, as many injuries do, the muscles weaken and there is a decrease in muscle tone, size and strength. Using the foregoing example of an injury to the lower back, it may take 6-8 weeks or longer to fully rehabilitate. In the case of damage to a vertebral disc, it may take several months of intensive rehabilitative…
  • When ‘Low’ is the Way to Go

    NFPT Staff Writer
    23 Oct 2014 | 1:51 pm
    There are many benefits to high intensity exercise, but there are also situations in which low intensity can be the best way to go. Let’s use as a prime example the case of the client whose main goal is losing fat. Often, the client starts off by being most efficient at using carbohydrates for energy during exercise and most inefficient at mobilizing and using stored fat. That means the person’s body responds to an energy requirement that rises quickly above a resting metabolic rate by turning first to carbohydrate metabolism. As a result, aerobic exercise design should emphasize…

How can you tell the difference, and why does it matter? The Cleveland Clinic describes an allergy as “the body’s inappropriate and exaggerated response to a foreign substance.” For most allergy sufferers, that might seem to be the epitome of understatement. People can be allergic to a surprisingly broad range of irritants-airborne or otherwise-but one that comes up most often…

    Becoming and staying physically active may significantly improve both musculoskeletal and overall health, and help offset or delay the effects of aging. According a recently published review of literature on the effects of exercise and diet on aging, much of the physical decline in the musculoskeletal system over time may be due more to a sedentary lifestyle than the process of aging itself. It’s a common and longstanding assumption that it is the actual aging process that causes an inevitable decline of the body’s ability to function. But increased rates of injuries such as sprains,…

In 2013, each state had an obesity rate of at least 20%. The CDC released a map showing obesity rates state by state.1 The map serves as a springboard to deliver a variety of obesity-related messages, and as a graphic, it paints a bleak picture of the phenomenon across the nation. Obesity is defined as a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher. Conditions that are related to obesity include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes – some of the leading…

  • 5 Surprising Benefits of Intermittent Fasting

    Tommy Pettijohn
    9 Oct 2014 | 8:56 pm
    Before we get into the what and how of intermittent fasting it’s important to know why it’s worth the time and effort in the first place. If I just gave you the plan and said “Go!” chances are you’d follow it for a few days, not see dramatic results and then move no to something else. That’s why it’s always critical to start with an iron-clad “reason why” for taking action. While others have spoken at length about the physiological benefits of intermittent fasting, I’m going to keep things simple and high-level for now. We’ll focus on the “big wins” that IF provides…

    Just about a week ago, I finished a train travel with my one year old son and trust me it feels like a battle won or one big task accomplished. It was a 30-hour long journey and before it started I had imagined myself relaxing completely in the train, finishing a long pending e-book, catching up on my much needed sleep and binging on lots of junk food. But, I forgot that the maker of my destiny, my son, was also travelling with me and things would be absolutely different! All dynamics changed since the time we entered the train compartment.

Either they are not able to enjoy it, or they get discouraged midway. Many who took up a specific exercise plan and continued it for long enough, have emphasized on the role of ‘journaling’. It serves as a reminder of the commitment you made with yourself. But most stay away from eating junk for the fear of looking bad in their…

You know, that hot acidy feeling in the muscle caused by intense exercise, the burn that was previously thought to be the effect of a waste by-product produced from burning sugars in the muscle (lactic acid). This research is starting to show that this burning sensation is actually caused by the release of myokines, a metabolic signalling molecule whose role is to instruct the body to release fat from storage (body fat) and also tell muscle tissue to burn…

And while one in three women over the age of 50 will suffer from an osteoporosis-related fracture, so will one in five men. In fact, a new report from the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) found that the lifetime risk of men experiencing an osteoporosis-related fracture after the age of 50 is up to 27 percent, higher than the lifetime risk of developing prostate cancer (11 percent).1 Yet, because men aren’t typically viewed as “at risk” of osteoporosis,…

    Continuing on my reviews for vegan protein powders, I recently came across one while shopping that caught my eye called MRM Veggie Protein. It was something I was searching for in terms of what constitutes an enjoyable, yet beneficial protein experience. There are no artificial colors or flavors. Instead, it is sweetened naturally with Stevia. The total protein per serving is 22g, and it has proteins consisting of organic brown rice, hemp, and pea protein isolate. There are omega 3s and 300 mg of High ORAC fruit and vegetable properties as well. It has all the essential amino acids, and it is…

    Well, fall is here and summer is now just an awesome memory. If you’re like me you’re wondering where summer went and why it always has to leave so abruptly!

  • Should you workout in the morning?

    29 Oct 2014 | 5:56 am
    At a running form clinic last night one of the questions going around was is there a best time to run? Besides the most obvious answer of “yes, whenever you can” there is a little more nuance to it. The real answer is YES…well and no. Confused yet? Let’s break it down…. Immediately I thought of Laura’s post this week with 5 reasons not to workout in the morning. All entirely valid and yet I still encourage most people to aim for a morning workout, so what gives?

    27 Oct 2014 | 4:53 am
    After months of training and hours of running it seems you are finally free of following a plan and tracking all sorts of things. But smart runners know that a post race recovery is just as important to ensure you are able to come back strong, spend a little less time wobbling down stairs and don’t find yourself on the injured reserve list. Why do we need time off after a race? Recovery is important for both the novice and elite runner because the toll of 26.2 miles on the body is just the same regardless of finishing time. One study showed that it takes a minimum of 14 days for muscle…

    Flexibility development is not only for many sports men and women but also for our children and youth a neglected component of fitness. This may be because of the seeming lack of applicability of flexibility to performance in team sports and awareness of the relevance of flexibility to better fitness and mobility in general. Whereas a Gymnast and dancer can see the immediate benefits of excellent flexibility as it is a key component in their relative activities, the game player’s need for good flexibility is less obvious. Also, a lack of flexibility can contribute to many of the hypokinetic…

    If anyone knows the struggle of being a broke shopaholic, it’s me. Even with only $5 in my wallet, I still find myself walking into stores and looking at all pretty things, and trying on pretty things, and wanting pretty things.

    I used to be very apprehensive about trying “clean baking” recipes. I experimented with a few, but always ended up with a big batch of disappointment. For a while, I was very angry at the universe. WHY do cookies have to be made of crap!? I am a firm believer that the food that our bodies want to be nourished with should be naturally appealing and delicious, and that after cleaning up your diet, unhealthy foods should start to be less enticing. I know this is true because I’ve experienced it. I no longer crave pizza, pasta, hamburgers. For the most part, I crave an abundance of fruits…

    Anyone who has observed changes in themselves and their body during their fitness journey has a transformation story. I posted a picture collage of my fitness transformation on Instagram and it only makes sense to share it on Nats & Fitness as well. My transformation is different from that of majority of people. Most people have a weight loss transformation story; however, mine is that of healthy weight gain, building muscle and sculpting my physique without going to the gym. I’ve been slim all my life but started my fitness journey about 8 months after having my daughter (you…

    One word for Build Legs – BRUTAL! Having done Chest & Tris the day before, my upper body was experiencing some DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) and I knew worse was coming with the leg workouts. DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness): Muscle soreness or muscle stiffness that occurs in the day or two after exercise. This muscle soreness is most frequently felt when you begin a new exercise program, change your exercise routine, or dramatically increase the duration or intensity of your exercise routine – sportsmedicine.about.com The legs have the biggest muscles in the body,…

    I have just completed week 2 of the Body Beast programme (should ideally have started week 4 by now but took over a week off due to illness). This means that I have just 1 week of the build phase left (please go here for my intro on the Body Beast programme). I figured this is a great time to write about my first impressions of each of the workouts in this phase. So here goes… There are 6 main workouts in the build phase, each focusing on specific body parts – chest and tris, legs, back and bis, cardio, abs workout and shoulders. This is essentially done in a rotation and you…

    Hey guys, hope you’re all doing well. Been a while since I did a hair related update. In one of my previous articles, I talked about cutting my hair really short (you can see pictures of how short my hair was in the article). After keeping my hair short, crew cut style) for a few months, I decided to grow it back. I’m glad my hair is now at a length where I can easily do different protective styles with it without thinking about how frustratingly short it is. This is my current hair length (shrinkage is awful by the way…lol) I still love rocking my twa. Washing it is not…

I used to have really bad backaches and when I started my fitness journey, I realised that stretching helped a lot. So began my search for something that I could do that would provide relief for my aching back. I went on YouTube and found some yoga videos that helped a lot. Next thing I know I’m doing beginner yoga sessions and loving every minute of it. Since then, I have progressed to doing intermediate yoga and working to perfect different yoga poses. I found out…

    When I was a child, my schooling was not the most meaningful thing in my life. There were a million other matters that were more meaningfulor at least I believed to be more meaningful at the time.It wasn't that I didn't care to learn, but more that I didn't perceive a great deal of benefit in what my school deemed as essential. Unfortunately, the school I went to was not the best and they spent the majority of their time teaching students the test rather than teaching students to think for themselves. Luckily, I had access to the Internet and a few teachers and friends that supported my…
  • Sometimes failing to Reach a Goal Is the Best Thing That Can Happen to Us

    Patrick Dwyer
    13 Oct 2014 | 1:17 pm
    What happens when you set a goal and you don't meet that goal? I recently faced this question myself. As many of you might be aware I set a goal to compete in my first triathlon. A big chunk of that goal consisted of facing my fear of swimming in open water.Months of training and tough work was committed towards this goal, but when race day finally arrived I made the decision to not swim and only participated in the biking and running. Although I made a considerable bit of swimming progress and successfully swam in open water during practices, which I had never done before, I still did not…

    Music is a gift that I have become exceedingly grateful for over the years.  I myself fail to be musically inclined and couldn't carry a tune or catch a beat if my life depended on it.  All the same, I do relish music immensely, including all kinds, from classical to hip hop and other music most would have difficulty classifying.  Music can touch and trigger feelings and ideas that words alone would have trouble expressing.  By taking those same vague words and molding them around a repetitive, almost harsh bass note with a hi-hat, you have something that truly speaks.

What follows in the next hour or two before we leave our homes will pretty much decide our outlook and attitude for the majority of the rest of the day.  So, what is it you do after you hear that alarm start to blare? Do you hit snooze a few times till you're running behind, and now are rushing out the door? Do you roll out of bed on the first ring and jump right into necessities needed to arrive to work on time?  Hopefully…

In the words of Brene Brown,In the spirit of this message, I'm putting myself out there. It's hard to admit when we need help. It's hard to allow ourselves to be vulnerable. It's even harder to put ourselves out there to the world but I'm doing what I can to do this more and more every day with every post.

Brene Brown, a research professor at the Univ. of Houston, gives a funny and thought-provoking talk on her own struggle to accept her own vulnerability and imperfections. As a bit of a type-A personality (yes, I know, I'm more than a bit but work with me people!), I appreciated and related to her struggle to accept her imperfections and challenges.Basically, she…

I've made 2 huge batches of apple sauce, a traditional apple crisp, an apple pie and apple cookies and yes, I still have 3 more bags of apples. It's ridiculous, I know.

    To drop pounds you need to be eating a nutrient dense diet. In conjunction with building and maintaining a wholesome diet plan, you may want to spend some real time on the treadmill or bike, eat meals far more commonly, and workout, all as part of your plan. Your body uses calories for fuel. No calories=no fuel, and thus no energy. To this same end, too many excess calories will be stored (as fat) for when you body has a shortage next. Because of this you quite often gain weight right back after you have lost it, which is why you shouldn’t be “dieting” so much as simply…
