Weight Loss Tip: Listen to your body.

Doing too much at the gym can be worse than not going at all.

We have all done it.  You go to the gym and go hog wild with your workout.  It’s never a good idea to overdo it with your workout.  If you overdo it, you will be less likely to maintain the exercise program and quit.  This concept is especially true if you are just starting out or adding something new.  

 

Research: Intermittent Fasting Works

Intermittent fasting induces weight loss preferentially in obesity-prone rats

Obesity is a leading health problem in the United States and obesity-related deaths due to disease such as diabetes type 2 and heart disease are on the rise.  Despite the abundance of weight-loss programs and treatments available, the health, fitness, and medical community are unable to make a dent in the skyrocketing epidemic.  Many of those afflicted are looking for help and there is an abundance of research that points to a particular diet and treatment, yet none of them lead to long-lasting weight loss because the urge to eat is just as strong as the instinct to survive.

Progress Report: Week 1

I just finished the first-week fo trying to lose weight for 2019.  I need to lose about 20 pounds from my starting weight of 234 pounds and 28.8% body fat per impedance.  I have elected to throw out the fad diets and just moderate my intake and add exercise.  I am about 12 weeks away from my next military physical fitness test.  

 






Editorial: A healthy start or procrastinate?

Flawed last words of the health kick.

I know you have said and done it.  You plan to start a new diet or exercise plan.  Shortly after the start or a few weeks into the diet, you become distracted and reach for that comfort food.  It is just a small slip, and those words come out fo your mouth.  You should know what is coming next and I guarantee you have said it multiple times.  If you haven’t, I will take my hat off to you.

Slight improvement.  

Name a diet, and you will find a diet that I have struggled to maintain.  I have tried Keto, low carb, paleo, and fasting.  I, like countless people, can tell me about my trials and tribulations with nearly every diet I have tried. Each time I tried a new diet, I saw a quick initial weight loss to only eventually fail.
