Aerobic workouts good for the cardio Muscular endurance

Is this the secret to safe weight loss?  The answers may surprise you.

After all the Holiday festivities, one has to wonder what fitness and/or health resolution will be made this year and stuck too?

It seems as we age and for many of us, increased body is added each year.  And with that being said, we continually resolve to improve our eating and exercise habits and quit unhealthy vices.

We tell ourselves we’re going to get serious this time and get fit while losing weight.  I realize we all have good resolution intentions.  However, for most this is easier said than done.

If you lack will power to change bad habits long term, the results on the organic brain/body will experience more pain and suffering than necessary in the long run.  If one is not concerned about such things then risk of disease and shorten life span may ensue if positive change does not occur.

If your serious about healthy change and willing to follow a fitness plan that’s right for you, “you can” improve quality of life experiences in a more fit body.  But you must keep the following perspective in mind.  It took years to become unfit and unhealthy.  It may take some time to turn around an unfit condition.  The good news is this change can be done in a reasonable time with little effort, once the body chemical activation secret is understood.

Yah I know, easier said than done for some of you.  Because some believe “I can’t change, or I’m too old, or I’m going to die eventually, so what the hell.”  You say these things not because you don’t believe change is possible.  But it’s easier to talk yourself out of change for lack of knowing what dietary and exercise actions may actually work for you

What would you say if I could provide you valuable insight on how to improve health, lose weight safely, increase fitness levels and increase longevity odds at no cost and modest will power?

And this knowledge simply involved understanding how to activate addictive body chemicals produced by your own body. Thereby increasing will power to continue a fitness plan and achieve your desired fitness result?  Would you be interested in this insight?  Most would say yes, what’s the catch?

No Catch.

What, you thought I was talking about a magic pill or have some other hidden agenda?

Nope.

No need for pills or gimmicks, your body produces these powerful chemicals once you know how to activate them daily.  And I’m going to give you this known scientific information at no cost.  And believe me the marketers don’t want you to have this information, why?  Because they lose fitness and nutrition sales revenues.

If your looking to select a fitness or diet plan, don’t get duked into one that guarantees quick results!   Man-made products produced from unnatural chemical additives compromise the mind and body at the cellular level.  Also fad and fitness diet-exercise plans not relative to your lifestyle will only work short term, or not at all.

These “quick fix” fast weight loss and fitness fad concoctions are wrong for most of us long term.  Especially if one becomes dependent on them.  Thereafter has potential, if nothing else changes to cause more harm than good in the long run.

Now click on the following link and learn how to activate those powerful body chemicals naturally, lose weight safely and improve health and fitness levels long term.

Will Power to Control Compensation Weight Gain Effect

24 11 2009
Walk and See all Around You.

Walk and See all Around You.

Your body’s health and appearance is dependent on many lifestyle habits and behaviors especially as you age.  With regard to diet and exercise, food intake and calorie burn through physical activity inevitably becomes a compensation-Will Power challenge.  Mind over body then becomes much more of a will power issue not to consume the “wrong types and quantities” of foods after an exercise, or activity event.  This issue will attempt to defeat your will power to stay on body weight target.  Compensation effect simply means if your body burns calories it will also want to replace them by telling the hunger center in the brain to eat more.  Your brain begins to beg you to stop the screaming fat cells from causing you agony and to satisfy them.  Scary little guys these fat cell monsters!

I’ve known for some time that exercise alone would not be the sole factor in body weight maintenance, or weight loss.  When I was working on my Exercise Science undergraduate degree, one thing I did learn is in order to maintain healthy body equilibrium especially as we age, requires a “customized” multidisciplinary healthy life program.  This program consists of exercise-activity, nutrition and healthy living lifestyle to meet body fitness requirements.  This multi-discipline approach is necessary for successful weight loss and body weight regulation at any age.  My take on exercise products sold on TV as I’ve stated in previous articles…  They won’t provide you a significant weight loss result, and especially without proper nutrition and healthy living habits.  If you’re serious about losing weight, don’t waste your money on exercise TV product gimmicks.  Instead, consider buying a gym membership and apply aerobic activity using various types of aerobic equipment to accomplish body weight goals. 

For those of you without much experience in a gym, look to purchase a few 1:1 fitness trainer sessions for weight loss programming and/or need motivation, etc.  Look for local fitness center promotion specials to run end of year and spring.  Also, learn to become a smart nutrition and healthy eating habit consumer by doing your own healthy weight management nutrition research.  For example, use the Internet and research under fit/healthy” weight loss tips and recommendations.  Also consider visiting your local book store/library, or take a community college nutrition/health fitness course, etc.  Consider purchasing fitness training books and videos geared around weight loss activities using aerobic bike, bike, walking, swimming, treadmill, etc., if the gym is not for you.  Or if dollars are tight, simply start a daily walking program.

When I mention TV exercise gimmicks they are exercise equipment that are non aerobic in nature and specifically work on body toning, not fat burning! For example, abs, hip-buttocks-chin specific exercise equipment.  Also I know you all know my favorite aerobic activity is walking and it always will be.  Walking in my opinion is the best cardiovascular, fat burning, low stress-fun, and low impact exercise available to all that can walk!  Healthy centurions have this one lifelong habit activity in common.  This is one of the least stressful aerobic fat burning activities and burns the greatest amount of fat per time spent on activity (swimming included).  It is my experience that walking causes the least amount of hunger pain if it is not done with high intensity (speed walking).  This is because the body will shift to greater fat burning as a fuel source preference during low intensity large muscle activity (legs).  The hunger center in the brain won’t know the difference when the body’s glucose-glycogen fuel source shifts more to a “stored-released” triglyceride fat burning process.

I walk almost every day, own some fitness equipment and have a fitness center membership.  I’ve found fitness activity variety keeps boredom abbey by breaking up my daily routines.  This helps immensely with my daily motivation to stay on healthy body weight target.  To walk, it doesn’t cost anything but time and good foot ware that should include excellent sole inserts.  See our chronic pain center and click on the posture, or foot image to get more information on “Posture Control Insoles.”  Gym memberships are nice because the sky is the limit on aerobic equipment choices.  If interested in fitness memberships look for one that has a swimming pool within the facility.   You can truly customize a fitness training weight loss program that’s right for any age at reasonable rates.

Always keep in mind the compensation effect.  If you exercise, regardless of activity you’ll always feel hungry approximately 1 hour after activity.  This is because most work done in the gym tends to become quick pace through daily conditioning.  Think about it.  You want to finish getting on to the home relaxation phase of your day, so you push your body to get out of the gym.  In essence you begin to exercise at a greater intensity rate which more closely resembles cardiovascular and anaerobic activity that will burn greater quantities of quick fuel sources; cretin phosphate, glucose-glycogen making you hungrier faster.  However, if your routine is mostly aerobic you’ll burn body fat and more of it at lower aerobic intensity rates.

In knowing that daily aerobic conditioning will naturally spur higher work training intensities, you can be prepared for hunger pains if you begin pushing yourself at this level.   In order to gage the best fat burning intensity and reduce severe hunger pains… Don’t train at intensities that make you out of breath, or make it hard to carry on a conversation.  Also if you’re THR (Target Heart Rate) zone peaks into a high intensity cardiovascular training zone for your age; understand you are not maximizing your body’s fat burning potential.  Ask your fitness trainer about THR, or simply research this term on the Internet to best understand and manage fat burning potential through aerobic activity.

I do have a solution to help you out in the hunger department as you will want to be adequately armed before the hunger pains hit regardless of your THR training intensity.  I’ve found, especially after the work out “the calorie burn compensation effect to replace the spent calories does impact us all at various levels of hunger pain.  The goal is to fool the brain with low calorie nutritious fillers that will curve appetite and strengthen will power to avoid pounding down fats and empty calories to satisfy the screaming fat cells. 

Whether the aerobic exercise is walking, biking, swimming, repetitive low resistance circuit training, etc., I know I’ll always be hungry after 90 minutes because my body is conditioned to work out more intensely during activity.  So if you can’t get your hands on fruit or vegetables, you can get water down your gullet.  Although water won’t fully satisfy the fat cell compensation screaming in your mind, a pint of water will stop this hunger feeling rather fast as the bloated stomach technique will temporarily fool the brain.  Besides, water is good for you… Let’s not forget this.  I know it’s boring.  I know you’d prefer an electrolyte drink.  Don’t do this often in the gym as electrolyte drinks have enough calories in them to compensate back to your body what you just burnt.  However, electrolyte drinks are great for high intensity aerobic-training endurance events where sodium and potassium levels in the blood can be reduced significantly and require replacement.  In these types of high intensity cardiovascular activities fat burning is not the fitness goal.

One thing I’m sure many of you may not know.  Many times when your brain tells you it’s hungry, it’s not, and your body is really thirsty.  So give the water gulping session serious consideration frequently while you work out.  This will help.  This water gut blot sensation will provide a feeling of fullness relieving hunger sensations while rehydrating the body.

However, beware; water is easily absorbed through the stomach and intestinal lining.  So this is a temporary fill to fool your mind’s hunger pains and rehydrate the body.  It’s not the cure all solution to defeat the calorie compensation effect that will ultimately result once the body is adequately worked and watered down.  Water in the stomach to fool your brain is like putting water in a strainer that’s lined with cheese cloth.  In other words, you don’t have much time before your brain tells you you’re hungry once the water quickly absorbs into the body.   You have approximately 10-15minutes max before your fat cells say “FEED ME, once the body is adequately hydrated!”  If you give in to the jelly donut, or pepperoni pizza, compensation effect wins over “will power and body weight discipline.”

Will you have the discipline and will power to fight off gorging yourself with the wrong foods, especially on a weekend?  Ah, here’s the question.  I highly recommend you find a nutritious food bar, or shake that’s high in protein and fiber to hold you over between meals.  This is like eating many mini-meals between the main meals.  You’ll find your body won’t be screaming from shear hunger, while reducing total daily calories and body weight.  There are many products to choose from… But you’ll want the fiber and protein because these low calorie high nutrient combinations will fool your brain for longer periods of time.  Good quality food bars, fruits and veggies work great after workouts and curving hunger in between meals.

I’ve also found that by taking a water bottle with me filled with a couple scoops of fiber source drink is a good emergency fix to satisfy a hunger attack when my compensation metabolism tells me I’m starving.  The beauty with this fix, you can carry the fiber powder around in the bottle forever until you add water.  When you have a hunger attack and you can’t wait to make that family dinner, fill the bottle with water, shake and chug that fiber drink.  Yummy!  “Well yummy is debatable, I did that for effect.”

Really, there are good fiber drinks out there in all flavors.  Look for fiber drinks that pack at least 3-5grams per serving.  Once you use your emergency compensation stomach fill solution to satisfy brain hunger, be sure to reload the bottle prior to the next fitness training session.  It is very frustrating to look in your gym bag, or back pack to find an empty fiber, or protein powder bottle.  I can’t tell you how many times I went for the quick food solution that was not there.  Instead I broke down and loaded up with a saturated fat attack, heart stopping gut buster.  My lack of will power won that day.  More the reason to stock an arsenal of various powder drinks in ready premix bottles and power bars at the ready.  I like to use old water bottles instead of tossing them after I drink the water.   I take 3-4 of them, load two with electrolyte and 2 with fiber-protein powders where they stay in dry storage (in the capped bottle)  until I need them.  I usually keep them in my car, or gym bag.  Just add water, shake and drink.

Also visit your libraries and read, or purchase books on how to improve will power while modifying behavioral habits towards food cravings.  To be aware of the mind over body compensation fact will help you recognize you’ll need to find other low calorie diet substitutes and behavioral strategies that will stave off hunger cravings during and after your aerobic training sessions.  Also drink more water in a day, eat more frequently throughout the day in smaller portions, get more fiber in your diet and don’t eat in front of the TV, “only at the dinner table!”  Finding what works for you and sticking to it is a big part of fitness and weight-diet management success. By applying the techniques in which I speak will allow you proper preplanning prior to aerobic fitness training and weight management success.  You’ll also better understand will power compensation effect while reducing body weight in a healthy habit approach.

New Year's Resolution, "Will Power Weight Loss Secrets"

23 12 2008

Another year has gone past and after all the festivities, one has to wonder what health resolution will we make this year that will stick?  It seems as we age we notice an ever increasing presence of body weight tipping the scale a little more each year.  And with that being said, we continually swear to eliminate our bad eating habits, begin a meaningful exercise program and do away with our unhealthy vices.  We tell ourselves we’re going to get serious this time and get fit.  I realize we all have good health intentions, this is easier said than done.  I know when I was younger like many of you we had fast metabolisms and unstoppable energy, a typical youth profile.  However, with age, we have to learn to change our habits to accommodate a slower metabolism and learn to enjoy life without the excesses, or we risk unnecessary ill-health conditions.  After all, it is now our job to fulfill the role of wise elder.  Remember our children follow our examples.  If they see us do foolish unhealthy things in our thirties and forties, they’ll most likely follow in suit.

Before I get into the meat of the New Year’s Resolution and Secret to Healthier-Longer Living, I’d like to preface this article with some necessary information.  As we age, most of us tend to decrease our levels of activity, sit around more and increase food intake.  And with age, this is the worst possible habit you could get yourself into.  The human body is genetically designed to begin the dying process after the age of 25.   After the age of 25 our body’s metabolisms begin to slow down, ever so unnoticeably.  Most of us don’t notice this change in our bodies until we are in our mid thirties.   Weight and/or pain tends to increase for the majority of us as we tend to forget about our health and overindulge as a result of living a fast pace lifestyle.  It is my belief the gradual break down of the body while we age is God’s design and necessary to prepare the body, mind and soul for death.  With this being said, God makes it easier for us to let go of this life and transition into the next.  “Quality of life and life itself becomes a literal pain, at times unbearable, where the will to live is greatly challenged.  The aging process with the breakdown of the human body provides the will to die per God’s design.  “Everywhere we meet the cross!” (Quote, Fr. Steven Kain, OFM).

The only “true” way to prolong the aging process while minimizing pain and improve quality of life regardless of one’s health situation is to take control of your health.  Control of your life in this respect requires one to manage body weight, stop substance abuse, consume super food quality foods and stop overindulgence while increasing exercise and/or daily activity.  If you lose the desire, or lack will power to manage these necessary behavior health changes within your lifestyle, your life on this earth will be greatly influenced to a negative health degree.  Awareness to these health facts allows one the opportunity to plan in advance if your desire, or goal is to achieve healthy centurion, or just improve quality of health and life while on this planet.  If one does not care about such things the end result is a health profile that usually ends up impacting your life, family experience and shortening the life span.

Now I realize there are many healthy life programs to manage weight, pain and other illnesses.  I also realize there are many individual medical-health profiles that require customized weight and pain management plans, treatment, etc.  However, there is one common denominator that we all share regardless of illness or health treatment program, “the will and desire to improve quality of life.”  If your will power allows you to follow a healthy fit body plan and stick to it “you can” improve your health predicament, hence your quality of life.  It took you years to impact your health by not managing your weight, or care about other abuses placed upon your body making you ill.  Nor did you particularly care about your health until illness reared its ugly head.  This of course takes a toll on your will power to change your predicament.  After you’ve got yourself into this pickle you feel there is nothing you can change to improve your health, so you give up and say to yourself ,“Self, I can’t change, or I’m too old, or I’m going to die eventually, so the hell with it!”  You say these things not because you believe it, or want to believe it, but because you don’t have the will power to change or know how to excite or stimulate your desire to use your will power.

What would you do, or say if I could provide you valuable information and knowledge of secrets to healthier-longer living?  And if this secret involved a powerful addictive chemical equation that could give you the power of change toward a healthier you?”   “Oh, but don’t jump the gun, it’s not what you might think I’m leading up to… ” The secret is easy to master once you know the elixir, but does require action on your part.  “As a bit of will power is necessary… Nothing in this life is free without a little effort!   However, extreme effort will not be necessary once I provide you this information.   How much would you be willing to pay to get your hands on information that could improve your health and/or extend your life?  After all, I’m talking about information that could extend your normal life cycle 10-20-30 years.  Would you be flabbergasted to realize I don’t want anything to provide you this information?   And then you must ask yourself, why hasn’t anyone presented this valuable health information in a format such as this?

 I’ll tell you why, it’s always about the money!  Greed knows no boundaries.    I don’t want your money!  I want your readership where I can provide a majority of people useful health information that can be used in part, or whole to make your quality of life better and more enjoyable while on this planet.  I’ve been blessed with much in life and this is my way to give something back.  Health and wellness is a passion for me.  I want to share useful health and wellness knowledge with those that really want it.

I personally make a New Year’s resolution every year with one added health benefit to ease acute and chronic pain while managing weight.  I don’t make resolutions other than health improvements each year.  So, I don’t resolve to spend less, save the environment, work less, spend more time with my children, be a better husband, etc.  Not that these things aren’t important, but you should already have balanced these behaviors and activities within your day and marriage.  For most adults, responsibility, accountability and discipline tend to improve with a successful life style, so I don’t focus on these things at my age… I did this when I was younger.  Not that there isn’t room for other improvements in my life.  However, at this stage of the game, health is high on the priority list.   If you have not learned to life balanced other family, or personal behavioral traits, it may be prudent to focus on two things for your New Year’s Resolution including health.  Never leave out behaviors, or quality of life improvements for you and your family’s well-being.  Nobody said life was going to be easy.

If I didn’t focus on a health resolution each year, I might create a health risk that would not be beneficial to me, or family.  It is also true if you focus on one categorical theme year-end-out, the statistical odds of success are in your favor.  And with statistical odds in your favor, that means a healthy life plan is sure to stick, or that is the hope.   If looking to select a diet plan, don’t get into “quick result” diet programs that guarantee quick results!   In short, I will say, “don’t get suckered into these gimmicks!”  You can’t defy God’s natural order of a healthy body.  Man-made products using unnatural, or denaturized foods with additive chemical products defy the nutritional requirements needed by the body and compromises the body at the cellular level, even if scientific data shows positive weight loss results.  These results are typically short lived and harmful to your health!  The diet program promoters don’t care about you and the long-term impact they’ll cause on your health.  Remember, “It’s all about the money!”   These “quick fix” diet elixir concoctions will cause more harm than good.  Visit my health repository at the home site and read previous articles I wrote on diet, diet pills and weight management.  If you chose a quick weight drop result program, you’ll incur further ill-health risk or consequence to your body.
