News report about Sugar

On April 21, 2010, NPR reported on sugar consumption in America…

“The average American consumes about 21 teaspoons of added sugar a day, according to the study…but it’s almost double of what we consumed 30 years ago.”

Fit Tip of the Week

Summer is around the corner and I am getting asked, “what can I do to drop some weight?”.  Here are a few tips that will definately help out….

1) Eat until you are 80% full.  As a society we tend to over eat and are not conscious of how much we put into our system.  Eating until you are 80% full might sound weird but if you eat until you are satisfied you are more likely to over eat versus eating until you are 80% full.

2) Try to get multiple colors on your plate.  Look at what you eat at your next meal, how many colors do you see?  When I first heard this tip I thought it was silly, then I started paying attention to what was on my plate…I saw a very bland looking plate.  Try to get at least 3- 5 different colors on your plate.  You will end up going: Mobogenie app download  Market is an that basically allows you to access to a practical app store that is an alternative for more fruits and veggies which are high in fiber, vitamins and minerals.  Not only will your plate look better, you will have a more nutrient dense meal (versus calorie dense) and you will feel better too!

3) Drink more water.  If you find yourself going for sports drinks or sodas when you are thirsty versus water, you are going to add unnecessary calories.  If drink a plenty of water throughout the day as it is, add an extra cup before each meal, it will help you to eat until you are 80% full.

Try these tips out and see how you feel, and look over the next couple of weeks.

Quality of Movement?

Strength, Conditioning, or Cardio training….Which is more important.  In the grand scheme of things, they all are.  In the overall hierarchy of things I would say strength training first (movement training), conditioning second (such as interval training), and steady state cardio (or long term, mindless cardio) last.

All 3 have their benefits and weakness in relation to one another, but in my opinion to live a long, healthy, and independent life you need to be strong enough to move.

Think of any kid you know, think of yourself, think of your parents, think of your grandparents.  How well do kids move, how well do you move, how well do your parents move, how well do your grandparents move?

Now think about yourself.  As we age we are asked to move less and less (due to work, commuting, laziness, etc).  We develop aches and pains that we can’t explain or “just happened” and we blame it on “growing old”.  I am calling bullshit.  Unless you take the time to be strong and stay strong, how does your quality of life improve?

My clients are in the baby boomer crowd (~45-65+) and I will put up them up against any of my friends (30 yrs old +/-) in terms of quality of movement and strength, and aches and pains.  I stress posture and using the body as a unit, vs sitting on a machine and pushing handles, or standing on a treadmill for hours on end going no where.

I guess the point I am trying to make is what are your goals?  If they don’t include long term quality of life, why bother?
Strength train (movement training), Conditioning (intervals), then cardio.  If you want more info let me know….
