How I Use Exercise To Help Me Lose Weight

When I finally got fed up with being rotund, the first thing I did was clean up my diet. However, this wasn’t enough to help me lose weight consistently. With the amount of fat I needed to lose, nutrition alone just wasn’t going to cut it; so I started an exercise program to keep those fat burning results coming. Here’s how to use exercise to send unwanted body fat packing.

Do Plenty of Cardio

In order to lose one pound of fat you have to burn 3500 calories. It’s almost impossible to achieve this without doing cardiovascular exercises. Aim to get cardio (with an emphasis on high intensity interval training) five days a week. If you’re super busy (like most of us) and find it hard to squeeze cardio into your day, break your workouts up into chunks.

Here’s an example of how you can break your cardio workouts into manageable pieces:

Run on a treadmill for 15 minutes when you wake up.
Take a brisk 15 minute walk around the parking lot during your lunch break.
Pop in a workout video and exercise for 15 to 30 minutes before dinner.

Don’t feel like your only options for good cardio workouts are treadmills and exercise bikes. There’s nothing wrong with these machines, they work great. But if you do them all the time, they can get sort of humdrum. There are plenty of other ways to get your heart jumping. Some examples include kick boxing, mowing the lawn, gardening, jumping rope and swimming.

Pump A Little Iron

Many women avoid weights like the plague. They fear pumping iron will make them look bulky and masculine. This is absolutely not true. Unless you use some sort of performance-enhancing drug when you lift weights, the possibility of looking like the Hulk is slim.

When you build lean muscle tissue by lifting weights, it kicks your metabolism into high gear and helps you slim down. Keep in mind, the more lean muscle mass you have, the more calories your body will burn—even when you’re stretched out on the couch doing nothing (nice!).

Also, lean muscle mass is compact so it takes up less space than fat. Any lean muscle tissue you build lifting weights will tone your body and give you a streamlined physique. Ladies, if you really want to get in shape, put your fears of huskiness to rest and pump weights three times a week.

Sample Workout Plan To Get You Started

In one of my past newsletters, I talked about building a foundation by focusing on mastering the basics—lunges, squats, pushing, twisting and pulling. Do the below exercise back to back. After you do the entire circuit, repeat all five exercises two more times.

Bodyweight squats – 10 to 20 repetitions
Bodyweight lunges – 8 on each leg
Modified pushups on your knees 10 to 15 repetitions
Assisted pull ups – 10 repetitions
Medicine ball or dumbbell woodchop – 10 repetitions per side

As your fitness level increases, you can build on these exercises to make them more challenging by increasing resistance and making them more complex.

There’s nothing like waking up every morning looking and feeling your best. Anything less is unacceptable. Let The Diet Solution Program show you these tried and true methods that I’ve used to help me lose weight.

9 Motivational Tricks to Help You Stick to Your Diet or Exercise Program

Half of the people who start a new fitness plan stop within the first six months. Whether you’ve started a new diet or workout routine, here’s how to stay motivated.

Weigh yourself daily: According to the National Weight Control Registry, a study of thousands of people who had lost an average of sixty-six pounds and kept it off for five years found that dieters who are most likely to maintain their weight step on the scale daily. Weigh yourself at least five times per week, if not daily. If you’re tempted not to weigh yourself on any given morning, examine that excuse. If I had a nickel for every client who pleaded, “Please don’t weigh me this week,” I would have a few bagfuls of nickels. It’s on the days that you most don’t want to weigh yourself that you probably most need to step on the scale. Your reluctance stems from your premonition that the number will be high. Just get on the scale. If it’s more than two pounds above your idea, deal with it.

Go shopping: There’s nothing like a credit card bill to keep you on track. Buy your new stronger, tighter body lots of clothes. I’m talking Neiman Marcus clothes. I’m talking Ann Taylor. I’m talking J. Jill clothes. I’m talking “the-clothes-I-really-want-but-are-too-expensive” clothes. Once you buy them, you better make sure your body stays in shape while you pay off those credit cards. How? Simple. Stay on the plan.

Work out first, do everything else second: It’s easy to think: “I’m busy, I’ll do my work out later.” Instead, I want you to think: “I’m busy, I’ll do my work out now.” If possible, do a workout on Monday mornings. I’ve noticed that most of my clients are more emotionally and physically rested on Mondays than they are on any other day of the week. They also have a lot of adrenaline in reserve, physical energy that they can pour into their workout. As the week progresses, however, problems at work or complications at home tend to burn people out, and their workouts become less effective and less enjoyable. When they switch to a Monday workout routine, they feel strong and confident all week long, which translates into more effectiveness at work and home.

Challenge someone: Be boastful. Tell your teenage son or nephew, your spouse, your brother, or a friend that you’re stronger than he or she is. Choose someone half your age or male. Choose someone who is going to say “Yeah right” when you make that “I’m stronger” statement. Put money on it. Create a huge wager. The loser has to clean the house, rub your feet, cook dinner, whatever. Make a wager that you’ll really enjoy. Then challenge him to a Wall Sit or a Plank. Get on the wall or the floor and see who can hold the longest. I’m willing to bet that you’re going to blow this poor guy’s doors off. Of course he could do more reps than you. He can probably hoist more weight than you, but he probably doesn’t have the endurance to last longer on the wall or in the plank. I know this because I’ve seen it time and time again. I’ve seen sixty-year old women outlast thirty-year-old men. I’ve seen forty-five-year-old moms outlast their sixteen-year-old sons. There’s nothing like the realization that you are stronger than a man or someone half your age to keep you motivated for more.

Do it with your spouse, a friend, or your kids: An exercise partner not only makes the workout seem more fun but he or she also can guilt you into doing it on those days when you’d like to tell yourself that you are too busy.

Keep a supplement reserve on hand: Want to know why most people stop taking their supplements? They run out. As I’ve mentioned, this used to happen to my coauthor all of the time. Then she came up with this ingenious solution. She now buys two of everything. When she kicks the main bottle and starts on the spare, she writes “get multivitamin” on her to-do list.

Keep simple staples on hand: Simple staples are those foods you turn to at the end of the week when you’ve run out of groceries. They are the foods you eat when you are too tired to cook, and they are the foods I want you to turn to whenever you are craving fake food. Avocado, salsa, baby carrots, and cucumber, for example, all last a long time in the fridge and they all can be used for a quick real-food meal. Just smash up the avocado, mix it with the salsa, and dip the carrots and sliced cucumber in it. Voilà. You’ve got a real food meal in minutes, and it took less time than driving to the closest fast food restaurant. Here are some staples to keep on hand at all times:

Whey protein for shakes (Milk Shakes).
Avocados.
Hard-boiled eggs.
Cans of water-packed tuna and wild salmon.
Nuts and seeds.
Olives, especially the more flavorful varieties such as kalamata.
Ricotta cheese.
Bell pepper, cucumber, baby carrots, and any other vegetables that you like to eat raw.

Create easy weeks: We all get busy from time to time. We all celebrate holidays, travel, and otherwise find ourselves with weeks from hell. When that happens, I want you to use home workout Level 1. Don’t feel guilty about this. If you can’t get to the gym, you can’t get to the gym, but you can do something, and home workout Level 1 is it.

Keep the faith: The longer you follow the plan and the more often you recommit, the better your long-term success. It’s just like any habit. It’s hardest in the beginning. The more you get yourself back on track, the less often you will fall off the wagon in the future, and the more easily you’ll climb back on once you fall off.

Beth Netter, MD Presents Breath as Medicine at American Meditation Institutes Seventh Annual CME Conference to Help Relieve Physician Burnout


Averill Park, NY (PRWEB) May 26, 2015

Holistic physician and acupuncturist Beth Netter, MD will present a lecture on “Breath as Medicine” to help relieve burnout symptoms for physicians and other health care professionals at the 7th annual American Meditation Institute (AMI) CME conference on meditation, yoga and breathing November 3-7, 2015, at the Cranwell Resort and Spa in Lenox, Massachusetts. Entitled “The Heart and Science of Yoga,” this 30 CME mind/body medicine physician training is accredited through the Albany Medical College Office of Continuing Medical Education.

Now in its seventh year of providing physicians continuing medical education credits, AMI’s comprehensive curriculum will present an in-depth study of the historical, philosophical and scientific nature of Yoga Science as taught in both the East and West. A variety of practical yogic skills will be taught to help reduce the effects of stress and burnout by positively enhancing the attendee’s ability to make health-affirming lifestyle choices. In turn, conference participants will become qualified to teach these same skills to their patients.

Yogic breathing is a fundamental practice of Yoga Science. Dr. Netter’s “Breath as Medicine” presentation will address the importance of diaphragmatic breathing as a means to optimize blood flow, provide sufficient oxygen to the body and improve heart-rate variability. The complete (three-part) yogic breath will be demonstrated and practiced by all conference attendees. Recent medical studies have acknowledged that by stimulating the vagus nerve, yogic breathing techniques can increase neurotransmitters in the brain that reduce anxiety and depression.

Presenter Beth Netter MD is a holistic physician and acupuncturist in Albany, New York. She graduated from the University at Buffalo’s School of Biomedical Sciences, and completed her residency in anesthesiology at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, MA. Dr. Netter is an AMI certified meditational therapist, and currently serves as Chair of the AMI Medical Education Department.

As part of AMI’s “Yoga of Medicine” program, this 30 CME conference is dedicated to providing quality, comprehensive and evidence-based education. AMI’s CME conference will offer a broad curriculum of Yoga Science as mind/body medicine to enhance the health and wellbeing of both healthcare providers and their patients. Topics will include meditation, diaphragmatic breathing, mantra science, Yoga psychology, mind function optimization, nutrition, Functional Medicine, Epigenomics, Ayurveda, easy-gentle yoga, lymph system detoxification, how to relieve stress and burnout, and the chakra system as a diagnostic tool.

The devotion, enthusiasm, and teaching methodology of the entire AMI faculty will combine to create a dynamic and interactive course for their students. Each faculty member is committed to the advancement and training of Yoga Science as holistic mind/body medicine. In addition to Beth Netter MD, presenters will include faculty director Leonard Perlmutter, AMI founder, meditational therapist and award-winning author; Mark Pettus MD, board-certified internist and nephrologist; Susan Lord MD, lecturer and holistic health consultant for Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health; Kathie Swift, MS RDN LDN, leading educator and practitioner in the field of integrative nutrition and author of “The Inside Tract: Your Good Gut Guide to Great Digestive Health;” Rosy Mann BAMS, senior faculty member of Kripalu School of Ayurveda; Prashant Kaushik MD, board-certified rheumatologist and Interim Rheumatology Program Director for the Albany Medical Center and Stratton VA Hospital; Anthony Santilli MD, board-certified pulmonologist and critical care specialist practicing in Schenectady, NY; and world-renowned artist Jenness Cortez Perlmutter, co-founder and faculty member of AMI.

The National Institutes of Health report that approximately 38% of adults in the United States aged 18 and over, and nearly 12% of U.S. children 17 years and under use some form of complementary and alternative medicine. Significant among these therapies are deep breathing exercises, meditation and yoga––all of which are offered in “The Heart and Science of Yoga” CME course. “This is the first CME approved conference in the nation covering the complete science of Yoga. Its holistic content is designed to provide healthcare professionals and their patients a 5,000 year old, time-tested, science-based mechanism for dealing with the debilitating effects of stress, illness and burnout,” Perlmutter said. “The more consistently the therapeutic practices of meditation and yoga are incorporated into the daily lives of physicians and patients, most symptoms of stress related burnout and chronic complex diseases can be diminished or eliminated.”

This sentiment is echoed by recent conference graduate, Joel M. Kremer, MD, who is Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Rheumatology in Albany, New York: “This teaching has been an enormous benefit in my personal and professional life. I have less stress, more focus, and am able to serve my patients with greater clarity. It becomes surprisingly easy now to recognize the many clinical situations in which patients with somatic manifestations of ‘dis-ease’ could greatly benefit from Yoga Science.”

In addition to Dr. Kremer, numerous medical pioneers and healthcare professionals such as Mehmet Oz MD, Dean Ornish MD and Bernie Siegel MD have also endorsed AMI’s core curriculum. Previous conference attendees have also noted that the material presented has made a beneficial impact toward their personal and professional efforts at self-care.

CB-1 Weight Gainer Gives Five Food Tips to Help Gain Healthy Weight


Orem, UT (PRWEB) May 28, 2015

When it comes to gaining weight many people have the misunderstanding that focusing on junk food is the fastest and best way to do so. While foods high in fats and sugars can certainly be a tool for gaining fast weight, CB-1 Weight Gainer by Supragenix is going to give five food tips to help gain weight utilizing healthy foods.

First, the key to any fast weight gain diet is carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are the least filling types of calories and contain four calories per gram, making them an excellent foundation for a weight gain diet. Some healthy sources of carbohydrates can include brown rice, whole grain breads, pasta, potatoes, corn, oatmeal, as well as tons of different fruits and vegetables.

The next step is to start reviewing fats. A common mistake stems from the idea that “fat is bad,” or that eating fats will only help gain fat instead of muscle. This is simply not true; fat intake is very important for people looking to gain muscle mass or just general healthy body weight. Fats contain nine calories per gram, making them the most concentrated source of calories. Healthy fats can be found in nuts, avocados, peanut butter, and oils (olive, sunflower, canola, etc.), as well as in dairy products like milk and cheese.

Another huge step is analyzing protein intake. Protein contains four calories per gram but are the most filling type of calories. Proteins are filling, they digest relatively slowly, and they blunt hunger. This is why a high protein diet is usually reserved for people looking to lose weight. When trying to gain weight, a normal daily intake of protein is typically good enough. Some healthy protein choices can include lean meats such as chicken, turkey, and fish, as well as vegetable sources like nuts, beans, and soy.

One of the most key aspects to any diet is calorie intake. The normal calorie requirement for an average male doing less strenuous work is about 2200 calories while for females, it is about 1900 calories. People will then raise their calorie intake for maximum weight gain potential; ideally focusing on adding an extra 1000 calories to daily intake. This seems like a daunting amount of food, which is why an appetite stimulant like CB-1 Weight Gainer can make it easier. CB-1 Weight Gainer by Supragenix increases the appetite, making it easier to consume more calories every day and thus promotes fast and effective weight gain.

The final step is a simple one: snacks. Many people overlook the necessity of snacks but they can make or break a well-conceived diet. Without snacks, weight gain diets can fall apart because they are missing out on a ton of calories that can be consumed through snacks. Some healthy high calorie snacks can include apples, protein bars, nuts, beef jerky, pretzels, yoghurt and dried fruits.

Dance Pizazzs Top 3 Tips on How Dancing Can Help Beat Social Anxiety

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) April 20, 2015

Everyone gets nervous from time to time, especially in social situations. For those who are naturally shy, gatherings can be tricky to navigate. As per Psychology Today, (http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/science-and-sensibility/201212/50-ways-overcome-shyness-and-anxiety-social-gatherings), being part of a physically engaging experience can actually serve as the perfect antidote for many types of social unease.

Dance Pizazz, greater St. Louis’ funnest, friendliest ballroom dance studio, is aware of these social and health issues and wants to be part of a dancer’s strategy to overcome them. Ballroom dance lessons can offer many opportunities for personal growth and can be an excellent tool for overcoming social anxiety. (Check out our students’ individual progress checks at http://www.dance-pizazz.com.) In that vein, here are three ways in which Dance Pizazz’s Private and Group Lessons can help a dancer’s social progress and overall health:

1. Dancing = exercise. Ballroom dancing is an excellent –and fun! – workout for the mind and the body. Dancing engages our cognitive and spatial ability: both key components in developing a stronger social skill-set. Therefore, the more the dancer dances, the less anxious and more social he/she can become thanks to this workout.

2. Dancing, especially without a constant partner = increased confidence. Dance Pizazz recognizes this and encourages its dancers to learn with and through others in a safe and relaxed environment. Because practice makes perfect, both Private and Group Lessons present great opportunities for a dancer of any level to improve their craft through repetition. It’s a fact: feeling more confident in any activity can considerably reduce anxiety.

3. Social dancing = improved communication. Anyone attending a Group Lesson already has at least one thing in common: they are interested in ballroom dance. This presents a perfect icebreaker for safe mingling. Just having a basic conversation about the shared joys of dance can help anyone with their communication skills and, eventually, with their overall social competence.

Dance Pizazz is proud of its dancers’ growth on and off the dance floor! In dancing, many have developed and surpassed not only their ballroom goals, but also their social acuity. Go to http://www.dance-pizazz.com to see how dancers of various levels (beginner, intermediate, and advanced), have improved their social aptitude and overall health.

Fresh Fruit Can Help Beat Disease in the Workplace


Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) May 19, 2015

Do employers know that office fruit boosts engagement and retention by giving the brain the fuel it needs for top performance? Research shows fruits have a “halo” effect and help protect against sedentary lifestyle diseases like diabetes, heart disease and cancer according to Tom O’Connor, owner of Market Fresh Fruit in Seattle, Washington. No matter one’s job description, the benefits are equal when choosing to eat fresh and delicious fruit at work.

“Everyone is motivated to live a healthier lifestyle. Fruit at work is the opportunity to take that healthy step,” said O’Connor, author of the new book, “The Business Advantage for Fruit at Work: How to Boost Engagement and Retention” (Amazon Digital Services, Inc., 5.0 out of 5 stars, 2015, B00T8JL28I, $ 2.99). “The trigger can be an office-wide email that fresh morning fruit is now available. Or it can be staging the office fruit under a bright light, which can increase fruit consumption by 28%. It can also be the act of placing fruit baskets on top of office credenzas and/or file cabinets for easy dispersal.”

O’Connor’s book explains that “a greater number of sick days, increased health insurance costs and the high cost of fast food and processed snacks are just a few of the symptoms organizations face when they don’t have effective wellness programs.”

Tips from the book include:


Why offering fresh fruit at work is beneficial – A healthy workforce means more productive employees, especially with the large number of sick days, higher insurance costs, and the increasing rise of fast food and snack items.
How to move in the right direction – Employers can encourage healthier eating habits for workers in simple, cost-effective methods.
What does it mean to adopt good nutrition? – The theory of healthier eating is explained along with statistics on the effects of fresh fruit on the body.
Is it possible start a fruit delivery program at the office? The author provides several tips on how to get started on offering healthier food choices to workers at an affordable cost.

“If you have an employee population with a high BMI or high level of bad cholesterol, rather than doing exercise programs, you may want to talk to your employees about nutrition, diet and how to shop for vegetables and fruit, as basic as that is,” states Bruce Elliott, manager of compensation and benefits at the Society of Human Resources Management in Virginia, in a recent article on Entrepreneur.com. Elliot points out that more employers are offering wellness programs as an incentive for their workers.

Market Fresh Fruit is a Seattle, WA based company that delivers premium quality, local fruit to the workplace. Since 2010, Market Fresh Fruit is Seattle’s only taste-tested office fruit delivery service and is recommended by clients at Fisher Radio, Creative Circle Staffing, and Crane Aerospace. Market Fresh Fruit is owned by Tom O’Connor. Every week, their Fruit-at-Work program delivers just delicious fruit to over 8,000 Seattle area workers helping employers increase productivity and morale, while lowering employee benefit costs by offering workers a healthy snack over candy or empty white carbs like muffins or bagels.

Dance Pizazzs Top Three Ways Ballroom Dance Can Help Anyone Relax

St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) March 27, 2015

It’s a fact: one of the best and proven ways to relieve stress is through exercise. It’s also true that it’s hard to stay relaxed in today’s world of constant actions, emotions, and interaction. According to a Harvard Health Review article (http://www.health.harvard.edu/newsletters/Harvard_Mens_Health_Watch/2011/February/exercising-to-relax), exercise – such as ballroom dancing – can help by relieving mental stress.

Dance Pizazz, the St. Louis area’s funnest, friendliest dance studio (http://www.dance-pizazz.com), understands this need for relaxation to improve and maintain health and wants to share three tips on how dancing can bring about relaxation through:

1. Promoting Chemical Balance: Simply put, dancing has been proven to reduce the levels of stress hormones while stimulating the production of endorphins. These endorphins are responsible for post-workout feelings like positivity and relaxation. The more regular the exercise, the more endorphins are released to aid relaxation and regulate the body’s cycles.

2. Deepening the Mind-Body Connection: Mental stress is known to create symptoms such as muscle tenseness, cramps, rapid breathing, and even lightheadedness. Dancing regularly, though, can bring about a deeper mind-body connection by reducing stress. This knowledge is the key to maintaining good overall health and keeping negative symptoms and even diseases at bay.

3. Fun and Exercise: Ballroom dance is a stellar workout that is also fun! It allows the body to work many muscle groups in a rhythmic and repetitive fashion, which leads to more stamina and strength. It also gives dancers of any level (beginner, intermediate, or advanced) a chance to unleash their creativity. What better way to both exercise and promote relaxation than while listening to good music?

As a body becomes stronger through exercise, it can also become more relaxed. Ballroom dance can help anyone with low-to-high levels of stress achieve balance on and off the dance floor. Check out http://www.dance-pizazz.com for other ways dancing has helped many achieve their healthy body goals.
