The Juice Lady: Not Just a Pretty Face

Here is a great example of one of her Posts. It is timely, well done and for almost every one, safe. (Some people are just too sick for the cure – and a juice fast would be too extreme… so talk with your doc if you think that might be you!)

I have Blogged before on juicing (which I do not favor) verses blending (which I do favor) and all of the reasons why. Use the search box to find all related Posts. Start with ‘green drinks’:-)

WHEN You Eat Matters

This research (on mice) reinforces old advice and other human research on the value of eating schemes, such as the “after 8 and before 8” routines. Whether restricted calories will result in weight loss may be tied to whether or not you eat at reasonable times.

This is something I have talked about with patients for thirty years, and Blogged about off and on for the past ten years. Most recently the research on fasting revealed critically important relationships between eating the last meal early and eating the first meal a little later: almost magical improvements in all the numbers that mark the progress from slightly sick to obese and on to metabolic syndrome and the deadly diseases that follow.

It is ironic that doing almost nothing (actually nothing – that is what fasting is) can be so profoundly healthy.

For more information on all of these words, try typing them into the search box on the right – there are probably a dozen or so Posts on each subject:-)

101 Benefits of Exercise.98

dscf0234

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.

98. Reduces the level of abdominal obesity – a significant health risk factor.

Exercise won’t address obesity by itself, but if you could only do one thing it would be the best first choice. To learn more about losing weight you can find a series of Posts on the Blog all starting with, ‘If you want to lose weight…’ (You could search that.)

You could also learn more about the Transform30 program by going here (there – the link:-), attending our upcoming event on Wednesday, September 28th at 7 p.m. at the office (8625 Evergreen Way, #210, Everett, WA), or just asking about it when you come into the office next time.

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.

101 Benefits of Exercise.44

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.

44. Helps you to maintain your resting metabolic rate.

(This should be shouted from the roof tops if you are interesting in losing or maintaining weight; and it, particularly, relates to strength training for increased muscle mass. The resting metabolic rate of muscle is much greater than fat: more muscle equals more calories being burned… 24/7.) (Pick a word that you like and search it on this Blog for more details; or call us for an appointment.)

A Good Article… Up To A Point

12247706_924744960895943_8480952025314137883_o
Here is an article that concisely captures a lot of what not to do and why.

When it gets to the what-to-do-instead part it breaks down quickly on the subject of progressions: if you don’t use sensible progressions arrived at thoughtfully you will risk injury (which means you won’t be able to workout right at all).

On the subject of high intensity exercise he has the principle correct BUT… see the Posts on progressions.

This article, like most, assume an injury-free and normal-in-most-regards subject starting out: that is rarely the case. If that is you then doing things his way might work out fine.

Most people have structural and functional capacity issues – latent (meaning they don’t know it) or not. When challenged by new stress (exercise) at a higher-than-they-can-tolerate level, injury is inevitable.

To avoid being in the failed group (1) start where you are, (2) build from there slowly, doing (2) first the best quality of movement possible, then (4) targeted exercises addressing your weaknesses… until you can function at near normal doing the basics: basic movements, basic exercises (these things are all easily testable; there are normals to compare to).

Then build on that, first with strength, then the rest (stamina, stretching, balance, coordination, etc.). Get all of that in one place with tai chi.
