Spring workout

It’s no newsflash: To create a body that moves energetically and without pain or stiffness AND looks great takes work.

What is new; to understand how to stage your workout program. It doesn’t take skill to just pick up a weight and start moving it. But it does take skill to move it in such a way that it helps you  achieve your goal objective. And for that, you may need knowledge about how to move that weight properly. A dysfunctional movement pattern doesn’t move you closer to your goal. Keep this in mind when starting an exercise program.

Spring weather is around the corner on the East Coast. The birds are chirping at 5:15 am and the days are getting warmer (like this past weekend). You are feeling to get out and about and ready to start being active.

Shorts are out, leaves and buds are peeking out, flip flops are on…there’s a new beginning in the air; all at once at the same time.

What prompted me to share an e-mail with you today was a question I recently received in my mailbox from Vikki, who has lost 20 pounds since starting the program January 2010. Read More→

The 80’s really did us in with the low- carb and low-fat diet fads. Are you still still among the individuals who believe that certain foods make you fat? Even great foods such as olive oil and avocado? Both of those have monounsaturated fats that have shown to lower LDL and prevent cardio- vascular diseases.

There is a widespread fear, even today, that certain foods will automatically turn into fat. One of these food groups is Read More→

Being confused doesn’t help achieve your goals.

And fundamental confusion about how to eat is something that I am constantly coming across: Eat in the evening, don’t eat past midnight, and eat every two hours. One day you hear one approach, the next day, another. Read More→

“I started the system a week ago and am happy to report that I have lost 6.5 pounds in 7 days. The first week was not at all bad and I hope that this week is as easy.”

This is the e-mail I received from a client of mine.

What did she do to achieve those results?

It should be obvious that anyone who succeeded knows the secrets. All of them know that systematic Read More→

“Soy causes cancer and it is bad.”

“Soy helps to prevent cancer and it is good for you.”

Which statement is right? Who should you believe? I found myself in the same confusing position as I read reports and books dealing with soy as a protein source, as an adjunct to therapeutic Read More→
