“Remarkable and a major breakthrough” I Don’t Think So

More amazing research on the benefits of fasting!

I have been a student of fasting for over 40 years, and this is the second recent report on new research showing that the benefits are almost unbelievable: but they are predictable and do happen over and over and over.

I reported, briefly, a couple of years ago about research on fasting that was remarkable and a breakthrough – but there isn’t any research news on fasting that is not positive – it is all almost too good to be true.

This is news that I can not help but share. I hope that you find it helpful.

91-Year Old Gymnast Gives Us A Reference Point

Guest Post: Nina Williams on How You Can Avoid Injuries During Fitness Workouts

How You Can Avoid Injuries During Fitness Workouts

The push for fitness is a commendable stride but sometimes people sustain injuries as a result of failure to take precautions. Before any workout, there are routines that can be helpful while some others have significance as the workout progresses.

Here are useful tips that can be of help:

Use a Gear

As you go on a workout, there is a need to use protective gear where necessary. The sort of gear you will use depends on the routines you will be involved in. if you are going to lift weights, it is advised that you wear boots that grip.  This will give you firm feet on account of friction.

If you are going for sprints, make sure that you have running shoes. A specialty store can come in handy here and you can be given guidance on the best fit for your budget.

Do not also forget that your body weight, height and build will be considered when looking at the shoe that fits. Regular lifters also need hand gloves so that slips can be avoided.

Nutrition

What you eat is important when you are considering any exertion over a period of time. Some people will realize that they are burning fat as they exercise and sometimes the loss of water could mean less hydration too.

The loss of energy as the fat gets burned could lead to fainting in some cases and this explains the need for a balanced diet as workouts become regular.

Your muscles could fail when your energy levels get severely depleted and tissue damage might be inevitable as result. Post workout protein should be consumed for repairs to muscle fiber while not forgetting the pre-workout consumption of carbohydrates.

Rest

When you are considering how to motivate yourself to go to the gym, your fitness goals will be clear. As you plan for the routines to embark on, you should make provisions for adequate rest. This is certainly one way to prevent injuries when on a workout session and it is advisable to use breaks when you feel exhausted.

One way to avoid injuries is to take a day of rest each week as a preventive measure. It is not necessary to wait for physical injuries before taking a break. Since the human body needs to be maintained, observing rest is one way to get this done. Learn to observe your body rhythm and observe the pause when you get a signal.

Stretching

Your muscles need some stretching before you start any workout. This will make you more flexible and build resistance. This evidently aids in warding off injuries since you become more flexible.

After the workout, you also have a need to stretch the muscles that have been exercised and frayed. Getting them to loosen up is helpful and you need to ensure that it is done after each session.

Smart Decisions

Sometimes it is easy to forget that as each day passes, your ability to complete the same routines as you have done over the years gets dampened. Every person needs to be realistic about fitness goals and not be too fixated on high-sounding goals.

Getting too much done can be harmful and since consistency is what can keep you fit, make sure you adhere to a regular routine. Doing too much will lead to more injuries and reducing the workload is a necessary precaution.

 

Hydration

You need to keep a water bottle close so that you can maintain your hydration levels while you exercise. If you lose too much water and do not get replenished, you expose yourself to more injuries.

Do not shut down your fitness progression with careless dehydration. Avoid any damage and drink water before, during and after exercise.

Warm Up

When you do light routines before your normal workout, you can get warmed up as you should.  This will lead to the circulation of nutrients and blood that will make your workout possible.

If you can run, jump or skip some ropes for a few minutes, your body will get attuned for your workout.

Cross Train 

The cross trainer engages in a number of routines that are different in nature. This is one way to give your muscles a rest window instead of repeating the same process daily.

The rate of burning body fat is known to speed up as you change your routines and this is healthy for weight-loss.

You are also able to avoid the discouraging plateau that is inevitable when you repeat the same routines each day.

 

Use a personal Trainer

Depending on what your fitness goals might be, some workouts are such that you need help with them. Going the whole hog alone is not recommended all the time.

When you use a personal trainer, you will get useful hints and tips that will help you avoid injuries.

If we were going to have a decent garden next spring and summer, this is stage we would be at.

Alas, we are at the Talking Stage… The nice thing about the Talking Stage is that there are no blisters, no sore muscles or dirty clothes. Sometimes there is Planning; sometimes Designing, and these can be stressful, but we haven’t really gotten that far either, so it’s been pretty easy breezy so far:-)

“What’s in your supplement?”

That is the title to the feature article in the most recent Bottom Line’s Health In Action.

We have talked about it here many times and will be again at our Event on the 28th.

Here is some of what that article said:

“About one out of every four supplements sold in the US does not contain what is listed on the label or has other quality problems, according to tests performed by ConsumerLab.com”

The Labels are Not Accurate

“…last year, an investigation into the store-brand supplements of the biggest national retailers – Walmart, Target, GNC and Walgreens-found that man of thither products did not contain the herbs listed on their labels…others included ingredients that were not listed on their labels, some of which were potential allergens.”

“And the problem goes way beyond the the four big retailers above.”

“RISK: THE SUPPLEMENT IS CONTAMINATED WITH HEAVY METALS-SUCH AS LEAD, ARSENIC, AND CADMIUM-OR WITH TOXINS.”

“…because the industry at large goes unregulated, be sure to purchase only professional-grade vitamins and supplements that have undergone testing and quality assurance from a reputable supplier.”

Again, we have talked about it here literally hundreds of times, and will again next week, but the bottom line, really, is that you need to be careful who you trust. This and other articles may be part of an agenda to bring supplements under the control of the Government and the medical establishment: do you really want to trust them? They haven’t demonstrated themselves to be too trustworthy in my view. Further in the magazine there is another article talking about what supplements you should be taking. The whole idea that you should buy and take individual vitamins or minerals is close to 40 years behind the times: you need whole food and whole food supplements if you want to give your body nutrition in a way that it’s been used to dealing with for a million years. The idea that people who create vitamin & mineral formulas are smarter and know better and can second guess the body hasn’t panned out too well.

Join us Wednesday night, September 28th at 7 p.m. here at the office for an event that will help you make healthier choices. Call to RSVP (425) 348-5207.

101 Benefits of Exercise.97

dscf0315

Research overwhelmingly shows that regular exercise lowers the risk for many diseases, enhances the functioning of virtually every physiological system in the human body and improves psychological well-being.

97. Helps to increase your overall health awareness.

(This doesn’t sound like a big deal but actually, it is. If you exercise regularly you are checking in with your body: if something is going on you will likely know about it earlier rather than later. Little things get smoothed out by themselves; big ticket items rise to level of needing attention right away.)

I will be Posting a benefit every day – well, most days – from a list put together by Dr. Dave Phillips, M.D. He is an M.D. from Atlanta, GA who specializes in Sports Medicine. As a former All-American swimmer he knows a few things about exercise. He is also on the JuicePlus+ Health Advisory Board. He is also all over YouTube doing videos on JuicePlus+, exercise, and other health-related topics.

You can be healthier: this is list of ways exercise affects the body; think of them as motivational if you like.

The Blue Zones: National Geographic Special Publication

bluezonengissue

It is upsetting to spend 43 years studying a subject and trying to figure stuff out and then have National Geographic publish one issue that beautifully summarizes almost all of the main truths of how to live a healthy and long life. But Dan Buettner, a National Geographic writer, and New York Times Best-Selling author, has done just that!

Comprehensive yet concise, well organized and systematically laid out, this one issue simplifies the entire subject. And he is a thinker: he has anticipated the next steps for anyone who takes it seriously enough to want to pursue a Blue Zoner agenda for themselves, and he gives you the resources to make your next move.

So, mad as I am (joke), I can not recommend this Publication enough. I found it at the Safeway check out stand. It cost a fortune. But it’s worth every cent if you read it deeply and use it as a guide to how to be healthy. And, for those who need to, you can argue a few details if you like, but the over arching truth is that these folks live a very long time and they are very healthy: it makes sense to do what they do if you want what they have!

Here are just a couple of the highlights from the issue. First he gives you food lists from each Blue Zone, making it easy to see what you need to add to your diet (if you are like me you already eat most of it but these list end giving you a sense of what is on the DO LIST that still need doing). He recommends starting with ‘Simple Food Guidelines’ and gives you two lists: the Four Always, Four to Avoid. I love that, and I could easily see that there are a couple of healthy habits that I have known about all along but haven’t quite gotten into a habit with. And the Avoids stick out like a sore thumb (probably time to get on that too:-). Finally, he covers beverages. There aren’t any surprises here but, again, he lays it out so everything is in one place, organized and easy to dive into further if you care to.

Please get a copy. Read deeply and underline, highlight, and dog ear the pages as needed. Then go to work. It isn’t hard. It isn’t expensive (these Blue Zone folks are some of the poorest of the poor after all). And reap the benefits of being healthy. Others have, you can too!
