Yes, spring is almost here (even if the current cold weather offers no sign of it), and you probably want to ditch those stubborn winter pounds now to look fabulous as warm weather approaches. Employ these five strategies for fast fat loss, and by the end of April you’ll shed that excess fat as easily as ditching that heavy down coat...

 

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Susan Smith Jones, PhD

In an organic walnut nutshell, my philosophy, with the help of Ralph Waldo Emerson, is “Health is our greatest wealth.” If you think about this sage advice, I’m sure you’ll agree. It really does begin with taking loving care of yourself...

If you ask most people what’s the best pre- or post-workout meal or snack, they’ll probably mention sports drinks, protein powders, protein bars, and anything but plain old food...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: I have to admit it is so easy to reach for a protein bar before or after a workout, but these suggestions from Valerie remind me what eating real food does for my body's recovery, not to mention the anti-aging benefits.

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Arthur Rosenfeld

Folks have been asking lately why they continue to catch cold or come down with a flu now and then even when they're really doing their best to live properly. They watch their diet, get plenty of sleep and exercise regularly, monitor their stress levels, try not to worry too much, even practice meditation or a mind/body discipline. Some may imagine, I suppose, that the human's natural state of being is eternal optimal health...


Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Sometimes I think I shouldn't get sick or become injured if I do everything right and try to live in a healthy way....and if I do become sick or injured, what did I do wrong? Arthur's article is a wonderful reminder that life is plastic and in a continual flow. It's the overall quality of life that living in a healthy way provides that gives the joy in living.

Fat fingers are the price you pay for enjoying a walk in warmer weather. Wise walkers remove their rings before going on a longer walk. Otherwise, you may feel like they have turned into tourniquets. When you exercise, you are pumping more blood around your body...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: I have yet to come across an article - until now - about the less than pleasant aspects of walking....things that can happen. If you can relate to any of these, know that you are not alone.

If exercise has become a punishment for excess weight or overeating, it is hard to find joy in it. This is a real concern, because research now points to exercise as one of the best steps we can take to stay healthy.

The last decade has seen an explosion in DVD exercise programs. Everything from yoga to cardio to dancing to kickboxing to muscle-building and single discs to complete 30, 60, and 90-day programs. DVD-based programs can be a quick and easy way to get in a good workout, or they can be a life-changing experience. All you have to do is follow along, right? Yes and no. Before you buy into the latest craze, ask yourself a few questions...

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Jill Coleman

Lately, I have been thinking about the concept of “getting real” with ourselves. This is a tricky concept because for many women, it can be taken to the extreme...

 

Editor´s Note: Jill hits the nail on the head here. You can't hate your body into changing. Too many women have come to me over the years thinking that if their bodies change, they will like themselves more and be happier. The women that don't lose this mindset tend to be the one's that lose weight and gain it back and are in a constant state of diet and weight loss jail or are disgusted by themselves for where they are. They never reach a happy, content and balanced life. We all deserve balance. Take Jill's advice. You will be glad you did.

The single most important way parents can engage their kids in physical activity is to be a role model. Both parents and children need to incorporate movement into their daily lives. Playing outdoors, weather and safety permitting, should be part of your daily routine...

 

 

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Laura Dion-Jones

One of the best things I've ever done for myself was to compete in, and complete, The 1987 Chicago Triathlon. I was the very last person to finish – with a time of 4 hours, 51 minutes; but the entire experience gave me incredible strength because I found out that the key to success in all things truly is mental...

You probably have a friend who spends hours on elliptical machines reading People Weekly and talking with her on-again/off-again boyfriend. She also swears by her gym’s Tuesday night aerobics class as an excuse to hit the new fro-yo place around the corner, since (according to her) she burns 500 calories in this class...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Different than circuit-training or plyometrics, burst-training uses short 30-60 second high-intensity exercise with a slightly lengthier recovery period, usually one-to-two minutes. It’s not easy at first, and not recommended for beginners, but the results are fast and studies are showing that the health benefits are more substantial than just doing regular cardio workouts.

The Secret to Eating Carbs

by Kathy Smith

When you munch on a muffin or take a swig of Gatorade, here’s what happens to the carbs that you just put in your mouth; they’re converted into glucose, which is essentially the body’s energy. The problem is that there’s only so much glucose that you actually need. The rest is converted into glycogen and stored in the liver and in your muscles. When glycogen storage reaches full capacity, all the extra carbs are converted into fat...
