I'm not a health nut, but I take care of myself. Not to brag and not to be vain, but my decisions are purely to avoid going to the hospital with something that could have been avoided. I exercise and eat right to be healthy. I don't spend the day thinking about what I shouldn't eat, I spend it thinking about living a long life and travelling with the girl of my dreams.
Are you as thin, healthy, fit or toned as you want to be? What if I told you getting where you want to be was pretty much a mathematical equation. There are 3,500 calories in a pound of fat, that is a scientific fact. To take one pound of fat off of your body you need to do one of two things, or a combination.
Doing things to improve your balance will also ensure you are healthy into your old age. Weight loss really is simple in concept. Eat healthy, fresh, local foods. Make sure that the products you chose spend as little time in storage as possible. Then, once you fuel your body, make sure you get out and enjoy the world around you. I call it fitness to make memories..
Fitness experts used to promise people a six-pack if we wanted to get them to buy something fitness related. The fitness of the nation has deteriorated so much that people know they are a long way from a six-pack. That's why the basis of weight loss company Visalus' top-tier success is a brand new "Project 10" program.
I think this new gastric gadget aspireassist is ridiculous. It appears that the gadget inserts a port that allows for some of the food that is consumed to be siphoned out before it is digested. Sorry, but that sounds like something one would do under dire medical circumstances, a reverse feeding tube of sorts.
For the love of life, drop that New Year's resolution to lose weight. Come on, you made the same commitment last year too and look where it got you. If you are like most of the population who has between 10 and 90 to lose, substitute your vague "lose weight" resolution for this much clearer, sounder approach...
I am not a fan of including daily weigh-ins in a weight loss regime. Daily weigh-ins are emblematic of many of the things I find frustrating with the fitness industry. We are all more then a number, how we feel day to day should not depend on the reading on the scale. I suggest that if you want to weigh-in regularly, the most frequently you should do it is weekly.
The fitness revolution nicknamed "Fitspo," would have people believing that perfectly sculpted bodies are the new thin. It would have you thinking that if you aren't training for a marathon or a body building competition then you're doomed to a life of heart disease and metabolic issues. I'm here to tell you that all of that is false. It's nonsense.
When I worked near Queen Street West and Bathurst Street, I would pass a sign on my walk that advertised classes at Barreworks Toronto. The woman on the sign is SO toned, glistening with sweat and in possession of a set of abs I want, so I took the stairs up to the studio two at a time. A feat I almost used as another entry for my workout diary. Seriously. So so many stairs.
We are all aware of the most obvious foods that are bad for our health. Those that contain excess fat, sugar and salt top the list. Ones that come to mind include candy, chocolate, buttery foods, smoked meats and salty snacks. I'm sure you know many more than that. But there are some foods that don't immediately come to mind which we mindlessly consume not thinking about the effects on our health.
It's no surprise that most people are of the opinion that the obese should pay for their sins through higher insurance premiums or higher taxes for the food they eat. Only problem is the obese more than pay for their sins by dying earlier than most of us and thereby collecting less in government pensions and retirement income.
We're officially in the second week of 2012, and the holidays already feel like the distant past. And as for those oh-so-achievable resolutions made b...
