by John J Ratey, MD

The Medford gynecologist and primary care physician for women says he's actually de-aging. That's based on a review of critical health markers that he says show "chronologically, if I go back a year on my numbers, I'm younger than a year ago...

 

Editor's Note: What's the best anti-aging drug? Exercise. A must have for your exercise library is the book SPARK: The New Science of Exercise and the Brain. Dr. John Ratey delivers proof that exercise improves the condition of virtually every subpopulation, from adolescents to post-menopausal women, addicts to those suffering from ADHD. Troy Heie wrote this article for Oregon Healthy Living back in 2008 and it was re-published in Dr. Ratey's website archives.

There are some things in life you just can’t avoid (beyond the old death and taxes joke). For instance, if you’re eating Double Dutch chocolate at midnight on a regular basis, it’s inevitable that you’re going to start waking up feeling guilty. And when it comes to exercise, sooner or later, it’s inevitable that you’re going to fall into a rut. Whether you’re lacking the motivation to get to the gym, or you’ve grown bored with the routine you’re doing once you get there, falling into a rut is natural...

by Laura Dion-Jones

We all have something we need to let go of.

For some, it's our unhealthy, excess weight, the food we're eating to keep ourselves overweight, or our lack of exercise...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: This is the first time I’d read the story, “She Let Go” by Ernest Holmes, which Laura shares in her article. The act of letting go is so simple in theory, yet can be so hard to practice. All the action in the world won’t get us anywhere if we aren’t truly willing to just let go.

It wasn't always easy to find time to work out when my children were little. When Kelly and Katie were in diapers, it was all about tending to their needs. But I still never let a moment go by without trying to fit in some activity...

by Paige Waehner

We all need a little help with exercise sometimes, whether we're just starting out or we've been at it for a long time. Still, there are people who shy away from personal training, unsure of what they'll get out of the experience or whether it's worth the money. There are a number of reasons people work with personal trainers.  Some want an indivualized program so they can lose weight or get in shape while others simply need to be held accountable for their workouts...

 

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: Even though I am a Certified Personal Trainer, sometimes I hire a Personal Trainer to work with me. When my life gets busy or I get stuck in some kind of rut, my personal trainer helps me stay accountable and focused and between the two of us, we create some pretty cool exercises that keep the interest level high.

 

Exercise & Fitness


by Coach Robert Dos Remedios

I am pretty excited to see many folks getting the idea to incorporate high intensity interval-style (HIIT) exercise into their workouts...

 

Editor´s Note: Coach Dos does a great job clearing up misconceptions of high intensity interval training. This is very important information that the general population needs to have an understanding of. There are too many programs and trainers out there that do not grasp the concept or use it in their programming methods. An educated public is better equipped to safely choose better programming and trainers for themselves. I hope this clears up the fact that rest is good and the idea that people have gotten from TV programming over the past few years about workouts needing to be non-stop torture to be effective is put to rest. Effective programming is key.

Editor’s Note from Bess Coble: This is Part 1 of a 4-part video series on what it means to have total fitness and the steps to take to achieve it. One piece of advice that Catherine has is getting 10 hours of rest a day. What is interesting is her definition of rest which includes more than just sleep: meditation, knitting, a hot bath, a nap….anything that is relaxing to you. She also provides suggestions on how to find those 10 hours within in our daily busy lives.

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...
