The 21st Centuries’ Fitness Guide!

Four exercise plans to lose weight, firm up and gain energy.

Choose the one that’s right for you!

The durability of the great fitness boom is credited largely to the common-sense appeal of a stronger heart and healthier body. But in fact, not everyone is sweating just for the health of it. A checklist of other motives would include weight loss, increased energy and bigger muscles. They add up to a body that is a source of both comfort and pride to its owner.

A single-minded focus on health also ignores the range of shapes, sizes, abilities and temperaments that defines individuals. A fitness regimen your neighbour or colleague loves may leave you bored and barely advanced toward your own goals. All the weight training in the world will not take the kgs off, for example; 40 miles of running a week will not build muscles. To motivate dropouts, the 50 per cent who quit an exercise programme within six months, fitness experts are shifting away from programmes based solely on cardiovascular workouts. Rather, they are looking harder at individual aims and goals, and taking strength and flexibility more seriously. To be sure, aerobics is still central to a well-rounded fitness programme, but there is more emphasis now on being responsive to what people want to do and want to get out of it.

To illustrate this new pragmatic approach, here are expert-designed programmes for Sarah, John, Susan, and Michael, four hypothetical persons who want to look and feel better as well as to strengthen their hearts. All are assumed to be free of medical conditions that would keep them from exercising. Your profile or goals may not duplicate those of our hypothetical examples. But the examples are peppered with useful details for anyone concerned with strength, flexibility, weight control, cardiovascular endurance and injury prevention. Each example is paired with a proposed 12-week fitness programme. These programmes can help you build your own. Continue reading »

Underweight and Overweight – Powerful Natural Remedies Revealed!

Your normal weight is dependent upon three factors: height, age and skeletal structure. Naturally the weight of the individual should alter through the several stages of life. And, quite as naturally, the amount and kind of food needed to maintain the proper weight will also vary, dependent upon the person’s occupation and general activity.

To say that overweight is the result of overeating is like saying that a fire is the result of a match. Who struck the match? What caused the overeating? Overeating is not a cause but rather a result. Have you noticed how your eating habits vary when you are occupied and when you are not occupied: when you are lonely and when you are not; when you are tense and when you are relaxed? The busy, satisfied and relaxed people of the world are rarely overweight. The idle, lonely and nervous people frequently are.

When you are not occupied and feel that you should be, you eat to excuse your idleness. (“I’ll do it after supper – after I have a sandwich – as soon as I’m through eating – one must eat, you know.”)

When you are lonely, you eat to replace the satisfaction of friendship. When you are nervous, you eat to forget the cause of that tension or despair. Here again is proof of the inseparability of mind and body.

The unfortunate result of unhappiness is not only overeating, but consuming worthless, fattening foods. The act of replacing some need of mind or soul with body food is a form of blackmail. You are “buying off” the mind through ransom paid the body. Naturally this ransom must be a luxurious one. That is why the unhappy people of the world dote on chocolates, ice-cream, rich cakes and the like. And here a ridiculous contradiction frequently takes place. The unhappy soul stuffs him or herself with appetite-murderers and frequently neglects the essential foods for health. Thus, contradictory as it may appear, many people are a stone and a half and two stone overweight and yet anaemic, undernourished, suffering the ravages of malnutrition! Continue reading »

Shape up in 30 days!

Are you fat, flabby, frustrated – and motivated enough to do something about it? And are you in a tearing hurry to see results without too many tears?

Yes, you can. You can have a better body in one short month.

If your image in the mirror makes you want to squirm, no need to despair. It is possible to get a better body – and fast!

You need to adopt just a two-point programme:

  1. Lose weight
  2. Tone up your body

Excess body fat is possibly the biggest impediment to looking and feeling in good shape. So, losing those bulges should be your first marching order. But, although you want to see results in a month, remember that, paradoxically, the fastest way to weight loss is to go slow and gradual. One or two pounds a week is reasonable and healthy, and over a month that’s no mean drop in body fat.

The best approach to losing weight is based on two activities: eating sensibly and exercising. Continue reading »

Diet Denials

How often have you heard, “I ‘m not on a diet, I’m just not eating wheat at the moment?” This is one excuse used by otherwise smart women in a bid to stay slim. Of course I don’t diet. I have a much healthier attitude to food. I’ve done the occasional detox – no wheat, no dairy, no booze, and no meat. I’ve dabbled with food combining, never mixing those evil opposites of fish and chips.

I’m not alone. Dieting or old-fashioned calorie-counting is difficult, boring, and out-of-date. So instead, many women are now imposing bizarre rules on what they can and can’t eat. Models often attribute their looks to drinking lots of water. What they don’t admit is that they drink water instead of eating food, not in addition to it. They chew gum constantly, because mouths full of gum can’t be full of food. Hands-busy technique: when not chain-smoking, models can often be spotted knitting or playing video games backstage, because busy hands can’t be full of chips.

And they pretend that they’re naturally, effortlessly slim. This ‘my metabolism’s faster than your metabolism’ one-upmanship sees famously skinny celebs pretending to be big eaters – such as Victoria Beckham claiming to at bags of crisps a day. And it leads us into cutting out wheat or dairy or food-combining – only eating foo that’s green, or never eating after 4 p.m., all in the name of health of course. Continue reading »

Eat your way to super weight loss!

It’s not true that you’ve got to live on lime water for breakfast and sprouts for lunch if you want to lose weight.

It’s not true that you can never eat chocolates or ice-creams or wafers if you want to lose weight.

It’s not true that you must drastically cut down on starches if you want to lose weight.

It is true that dropping a few kgs is a cinch once you’ve discarded a few myths about food.

It is true that you can eat up, fill up… and not fill out.

Here’s the secret to how to do it:

It’s a basic principle of weight loss: To drop pounds, you eat less. The only question is what to eat less of. It’s logical to assume you need to eat less of everything – an approach that’s long held sway with dieters and nutritionists alike. But most diets that restrict total calories are doomed to failure: Eventually you have to give in to your body’s rightful craving for nutrients. Instead, new research shows that to lose weight, we need to mostly cut one kind of calorie: fat. Continue reading »

Yes, it is possible. The weight-loss experts we consulted agree: With the right plan and a lot of slimming ideas, some of you can lose as many as six inches in two months – without putting yourself through diet-and-fitness boot camp.
