Cooking Right For Healthy Living By : Brian Knapp
In our present generation, people are always picky in terms of what they eat. Does it have less sugar or less fat? If it's low on carbohydrates or not, was it baked or fried? And most
ger of oil to your health. Most people would say that cooking is for everyone, but not everyone can cook. And I think that those who believe in this just simply hate cooking. So they just gave up right away and didn't bother trying. If you notice, people nowadays are starting to be aware of their well being, its true that doing exercise may help you stay fit and healthy but most especially it's the food that you eat. I know some people who invest on expensive cook wares because they believe that it's healthier to cook their foods using those compared to ordinary cook wares. Example would be using non-stick frying pans or those that doesn't need oil when cooking.
So if you want a healthy life, you need to have healthy foods as well. Its important that people are aware of the food they eat because it will not only save you big bucks on important, is it a healthy food or not. getting medications when you get sick, it's the privilege to live long with your loved ones beSurely, when you ask anyone, they wanted something that's healthy, but the problem is on cause when your healthy, you don't get sick and when you don't get sick then you can enhow you can get joy life to its fullest. these kinds of foods when most of the restaurants you see outside are fast foods. And those who can serve you healthy foods would cost much more compared to their usual menu which is either fried to the deepest amount of oils, or foods that were frozen for hours or even days that its freshness has been long gone. I think people just have to put some of their time to be able to prepare good foods. You might find it hard at first but surely, when youu'ru'ru'rre starting to feel healthy, it would be as easy as your everyday ordinary meal. This is where quality cooking comes in. In order for you to create something healthy, you must first decide what a healthy food for you is. Cooked foods are still healthy foods, how you did cook them is the difference.

Working Out in Style and Fitness Tips By Rib Parker
While there is something wonderfully satisfying of coming in after a tough workout, you'll probably be the first to note that you aren't going to be winning an beauty prizes! The truth of the matter is that when you want to look good, you are going to need to think about what measures you can take to combat some of the issues that you might create after you have been exercising! While it feels good and is good for us, there are a lot of things that we need to think about if we have been working out and still want to look our best.
If you are someone who wants to look good even as you are running, remember to get the right clothes to wear. Ideally, you will have clothes that are fitted well to your body and you will discover that not only do they look better, they are not going to be as wind resistant as anything larger as well. Choose colors that you really love and remember that allnatural fibers will help you stay cooler while also wicking sweat away from your body.
There are lots of things that you can do when you want to look great even if you are working out hard. Take some time and consider how you In the first place, want to look even if remember that you are going to need to stop and really con- you are exercising. If you are someone with sider what your options are going to be when fashion and beauty in mind, there is no reait comes to getting water during your workout son that an intense workout has to even give and ideally before and after it as well! Water you a pause. is extremely important when you are looking at getting impurities out of your system and at the end of they day, when you sweat and exercise, you are going to be losing a fair amount of it! Take some time and make sure that you keep a water bottle with you. Making sure that you have enough water to drink will let you work out longer and feel much better as well as doing wonders for your skin. If you swim, you'll discover that too much time in the pool will often make you feel dried out and itchy. The issue here is that your skin's protective oils are being stripped away, and this is something that can make a huge difference when you want to look your best. To make sure that your skin doesn't get too dried out, make sure that you consider what kind of moisturizers your skin responds best to. For your hair, which can become extremely dry and crackly with too much time in the pool, make sure that you slather it in leave in conditioner and then top it off with a swim cap before you jump in. This is a great way to look great even if you have been dunking yourself in chlorine or saltwater all summer.

Best Supplements For Fat Loss By: Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS www.TurbulenceTraining.com
The shocking truth about supplements for fat loss is, "they don't really work". I'm not convinced any supplement speeds fat loss or boosts your metabolism, or otherwise magically leads to more fat burning.

After all, you need some these drinks are just protein and carbohydrate, which you can get from real food. I prefer plain old chocolate milk, if your stomach can handle it. Creatine can help a musclegaining workout plan. But you just need the plain creatine powder - not any of these new fancy creatines (that are unproven!). I still like the 3 day loading period (20 grams per day, split into 4 doses But what about the generally of 5 grams). If you do that, recommended supplements, try to take your creatine with protein and like protein, creatine, and carbohydrate-rich meals. post-workout shakes? caffeine to stay awake. Why is it that I've never met a person who has had success with a fat burning pill? Everyone I've ever talked to has yet to see results from these so-called "fat burners".

The bottom line: Muscle building and fat burning supplements are not worth the money. Real food is the key to getting the body, and health, you desire. However, if you have a hard time eating a variety of fish or getting all your fruits and vegetables, you might benefit from health supplements.

The Little Thing in Your Head That's Keeping You Fat By Tom Venuto - www.BurnTheFat.com
I have no doubt that a scientist somewhere just read the title of this article and said out loud, “YES! Venuto is right! That little thing in your head – the hypothalamus – it IS the thing that is keeping you fat! By George, that Venuto guy isn’t a dumb bodybuilder after all – he’s been doing his research!” At which moment, I will be shaking my head and thinking, “you need to get out of the laboratory and into the real world, with real people, buddy.” Okay, okay, to be fair, Neuro-endocrine control of appetite and body fat really is quite fascinating. But today, I’m talking about PSYCHology, not PHYSI-ology. The little thing in your head that’s keeping you fat is actually just a…. Limiting belief! Self-limiting beliefs are among the biggest problems that people deal with in their struggles to achieve a healthy ideal weight. They’re also one of the reasons that so many people start to falter or fall off the diet and exercise wagon as early as late January or early February in their New Year’s goal pursuits. If you’re that science guy I spoke of and you’re about to bail because you’re thinking, “Here we go again… another psycho-babble, self help article,” then think again. A belief is the force behind the placebo effect, which is well known by every scientist and medical professional. A respected doctor gives a patient a pill and is told it’s a powerful drug. The patient gets well immediately, not knowing that the “miraculous” substance was a dummy pill. Inert. Sugar. The miracle was in the mind. But beliefs are not only involved in the mind-body con-
nection, they are unconscious programs that control your behavior. The most important factor in whether you achieve the body and the health you want is NOT what diet or training program you follow. It’s what makes you follow your diet and training program. And guess what? What you believe controls your behavior whether you will stick with your program or sabotage it with cheating, bingeing or inconsistency. What to do about limiting beliefs Ok, so now you agree that beliefs are psychological factors that affect you physically by controlling your behavior, including your eating, exercising and lifestyle. What now? 3 steps. 2 questions. STEP 1: IDENTIFY LIMITING BELIEFS You are fully aware of many of your beliefs. For example, beliefs about spirituality or politics are usually in the front of your conscious mind. But the beliefs that hold back your health and physical development the most are usually the ones you don’t even know you have. They are like unconscious “brain software,” running silently in the background. So the first step is to bring those unconscious and potentially damaging beliefs up to the surface so you are aware of them. You can’t fix a problem if you don’t know you have one. 2 Quick Questions That Will Help Draw Out Your Beliefs Beliefs can go back to childhood, but don’t worry, you don’t have to go to a psychotherapist and be regressed back to kindergarten. It’s simpler than that. But it does pay
to do this questioning process as a formal “exercise” with serious quiet time, with pen and paper (instead of just thinking about it). Question #1: What causes me to be overweight (or unhealthy, or not having the body I want)? Question #2: What’s preventing me from getting leaner? (or healthier?) Spend some time with it and see how big of a list you can create. Ask yourself whether each belief helps or hurts you. Does it move you forward or backward. Does it empower or disempower you? The ones that hurt you or hold you back will be obvious. You may come up with beliefs such as: “I’m overweight and I can’t get leaner because”: I have no time I’m too old I can’t stop eating I hate exercise You just can’t do it when you have 4 kids It’s impossible after having a hip replacement But the million dollar question is: are these beliefs actually true? Beliefs are not facts. You may hold your beliefs as absolute reality, but when you deconstruct them and challenge them, you may see that they don’t hold any water. Self limiting beliefs are false interpretations (negative thought patterns) that hold you back. And you keep holding on to them because making excuses and staying the same is a lot more convenient than changing, isn’t it? --> continued
The Little Thing in Your Head That's Keeping You Fat By Tom Venuto - www.BurnTheFat.com - continued -
Change requires hard work, effort and leaving your comfort zone. Your mission now: weaken the limiting beliefs and get rid of them STEP 2: CHALLENGE THOSE BELIEFS How do you challenge a belief? 4 ways: (A) Challenge it directly: Is the belief even valid at all? See if you can find a “counter example” that disproves your belief. For example; if you think that after you’ve had 3 or 4 kids, it’s impossible to get a nice flat stomach, what will you say after I introduce you to a dozen of my clients and readers who had 3 or 4 kids and went from bulging belly to rock-hard flat stomach? If they did it, then how could your belief be valid? Answer: It WASN’T! You believed something false and inaccurate and it was holding you back! (B) Challenge the source: Is it your belief, or have you been living what your parents, peers or culture handed down to you? Just the realization that a belief wasn’t yours to begin with is enough to shatter it. (C) Challenge the usefulness of the belief: Ok, so you believed something when you were younger. Does still believing it has any usefulness today? Does it help you move closer to what you want in your life today? If not, then wouldn't today be a good time to get rid of it? (D) Challenging the belief by weighing the consequences:
the behaviors that this belief would generate. Think about and feel what it would be like to take those positive actions steps and play mental movies of how your life would change by doing so. Involve all your senses: see it, hear it, feel it. STEP 3: INSTALL A NEW Keep it up until you start to see BELIEF your behavior change and your habitual actions come into Nature abhors a vacuum, as Spinoza once said. You don’t alignment with your goals/ intentions. If you’re diligent, simply get rid of a belief, you you’ll see changes in attitude must also replace it. What and behavior with 2130 days.

Politically Incorrect Holiday Fat Loss Tips By line: By Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS www.TurbulenceTraining.com
I was at a big event last week and was reminded how important it is to have strategies for this season of high-calorie parties and busy schedules. But I get ticked off by the tired old suggestions you find on the Internet or in magazines like Woman's World.
having a cup of Green Tea and one ounce of almonds has helped them avoid holiday cravings better than anything ever before. The fiber from the almonds reduces appetite while the small amount of caffeine from the Green Tea seems to increase mental alertness and keep you "energized" at the party.
Often the suggestions are lack any substance, because the writers don't want to imply you actually have to make a sacrifice Hopefully that might work for you... to succeed. They make fat loss sound easy, as if all you had to do was park at the far Strategy #2 - Don't waste your time on any end of the parking lot and you'd burn all the fancy cardio programs calories from 5 shortbread cookies. Well it doesn't work that way...So here are my politically incorrect, unique Turbulence
Training strategies to help you keep off the holiday pounds. By the way, I "borrowed" a few ideas from contestants in my Turbulence Training Transformation Contest. The Transformation is rocking with social support and success stories right now, even while the rest of the world struggles with weight gain, these TT users are losing fat over the holidays. Click here to get started with Turbulence Training for Fat Loss: ==> http://www.turbulencetraining.com Strategy #1 - Green Tea & Almonds
Listen, the bottom line over the holiday season is that your success depends almost entirely on your nutrition.
You can't expect to hit the cardio confessional and burn off last night's 2000 calorie smorgasboard. That's a 4-hour workout. Instead, don't get into that situation in the first place. Here are more nutrition tips: - Focus on portion control (and if you have no discipline, forget even trying to eat just one) - Nix all drinks mixed with calorie-containing beverages, or better yet, just stop getting drunk. Period.
- Write down everything you eat to identify your problem spots. Then do whatever you need to do to eliminate your weaknesses. If you don't record your nutrition, chances are you'll miss big opportunities to change your diet and lose fat. Unfortunately, most people I talk to have no --> continued luck with this tip. Most people still go to a party and eat everything in sight. One of the most common tips you'll hear is to "fill up" before you go to a party where there will be lots of goodies.
But recently TT users have told me that

My friend Holly Rigsby (of http:// www.fityummymummy.com) is always reminding busy moms to take care of themselves first, and I think that suggestion applies at this time of year to everyone. Stay healthy and fit over the holidays. So take a deep breath. Ask yourself as you're running around to Craig Ballantyne, CSCS, MS please everyone else, "Have you set aside Author, Turbulence Training time for yourself" Be selfish. Make sure you have had some YouTube Video: Hotel Room Workout exercise time, some good nutrition, and some rest before overextending yourself and doing too much for other people when you haven't taken care of yourself and your goals first. Strategy #4 - Get on a roll This one comes from a TT Transformation contestant who is too busy losing fat to get off track over the holidays. Don't procrastinate till January 1st. Get started now. Dozens of men and women are doing their Turbulence Training Transformations right now - through the heart of the holiday season. They aren't waiting for Jan. 1st to show up. They are taking control now, and getting on a roll, and not letting anything (from work parties to peer pressure) get in their way. Strategy #5 - Exercise in short bursts whenever you can Don't be afraid to dance at your Christmas party. Don't worry, there is bound to be at least one worse dancer than you out on the floor. Have fun and get down! On a more serious note, here's how to avoid falling off the fitness program during the busy holiday season.

Basketball for Fat Loss? By Tom Venuto
QUESTION: Hi Tom. I have asked several other experts about this and so far no one seems to give me an EXACT answer. Some trainers tell me I have to go steady and nonstop for 30 minutes straight or more to burn fat. Others tell me I have to do intervals and they have to be in a certain ratio of sprint to recovery. I’m getting tired of my cardio ritual and would like a change. I love basketball. I could play for an hour and enjoy every minute of it, and I FEEL like I’m getting a good workout doing it. But is it really the same as something like a good run?
The word “aerobics” sets people off… especially the macho guys. There’s an instant emotional connotation carried in the word “aerobics, and it’s negative for many people. “Aerobics” is also usually a very narrow definition making for a fairly small list of choices. I like the word “cardio” a little better, because it’s a little broader, but even “cardio” carries with it some pre-conceived notions and it’s unclear whether various types of “cardio” exercise are good fat burners. Is
ANSWER: I just plugged basketball into my calories burned calculator and it says that if you weigh 185 pounds, moderate basketball (full court game play) burns 839 calories per hour. Moderate basketball (non-game) is 528 calories per hour. I’m guessing “non-game” means either half court or just casual play with your buddies. Either way, 528-839 calories burned per hour sounds like a good fat burner to me especially the all-out, full court basketball. Don’t you agree? Basketball also gives you a wide variety of different physical challenges and intensity levels - running down the court, jumping, pivoting, shooting - and you said you enjoy it. If you feel guilty when you finish your game, as if you didn’t burn enough, when the game is over, just run intervals up and down the court… do about 6-10 of them or until you yak. (just kidding). If I were to clarify my position on cardio training in my fat loss book today, I don’t think I would change my recommendations much. I'm a very strong proponent of exercise and becoming more active to burn fat rather than just cutting calories. However, I might change some of the language to make it clearer that fat loss is about BURNING calories and that your choices for HOW to burn them are virtually infinite. The problem, in my opinion?
basketball cardio? I suppose it depends on your definition. Is basketball a good fat burner? Sure. But you might not think so if you were inflexible about how you define exercise and training. What I would do if I wanted to most clearly define what makes a good fat burner, I’d recommend that you focus on: “INCREASING ENERGY EXPENDITURE” (BURN MORE!) This description leaves the choice of activity up to your own personal interpretation and personal preference. Is 500 to 800 calories per hour a lot of energy to expend? You bet. Better still is the fact that you enjoy it. I know, I know, everyone wants to be told EXACTLY what to do; how many minutes, what intensity, what type, what heart rate, blah, blah, blah, and gurus are infamous for being dogmatic about their systems as the “best way” or “only way.”
Basketball for Fat Loss? By Tom Venuto - continued -
But what if Dan loves basketball and Tom loves the Stepmill and Joe loves to jog and Kyle likes calisthenics and John likes kettlebells and Suzy likes kickboxing? Then what? By changing your language and focusing on increasing “energy expenditure” (Burning more), that should change your conception of what efficient fat burning exercise is. DEFINITION OF GOOD FAT BURNING EXERCISE = High # of total calories burned/expended
Using my new definition for fat burning exercise should help lift the fog of confusion that has been created by only defining fat burning exercise as”aerobics” or “cardio.” The word “Aerobics” is somewhat restrictive in scope and definition. The possibilites for “expending energy” are endless. So now, go forth and BURN THE FAT… however you choose to do it… just do it! Train hard and expect success,
DEFINITION OF GREAT FAT BURNING EXERCISE = High # of total calories burned/ expended and high # expended per unit of time DEFINITION OF WHOOP-ASS FAT BURNING EXERCISE = High # of total calories burned and high # burned in a short period of time and you love doing it! It’s play time!
Tom Venuto Fat Loss Coach www.BurnTheFat.com
Fat oxidation and excess post exercise energy expenditure and all that other scientific stuff (that I could bore you to death talking about) does matter, but your primary focus PS. By the way, you don’t see a lot of fat jiggling around the court in the NBA do should be on: you? 1) Burning as many calories as you can in the time you have. 2) Finding something you like to do. 3) Focusing on RESULTS above all else… Is your body fat decreasing or not? Last, but not least, don’t forget that optimal fat loss is achieved with a three-part approch including nutrition, weight training and “cardio” training. I’m not saying that basketball should replace your strength training. I’m suggesting that basketball or other sports can be a perfectly viable alternative to traditional aerobics or cardio if they’re high energy cost activities.

The Joy of Walking By : Laurel Skinner
I discovered the joys of walking quite by accident, a car accident that is. Being without a car, short on cash to purchase another and no handy public transit available, I was literally forced to walk to work and home again each day (a distance of over two miles). Never in my wildest dreams did I ever realize what I considered at the time to be the darkest day of my life would turn out to be the best day of my life, completely changing my life and my lifestyle forever.
Walking to lose weight is healthy, no doubt. But it’s also a great way to get around the neighborhood, meet neighbors, and see things you probably miss while driving around everywhere you go. Walking is a popular option to lose weight for those who wish to embark on an exercise program. Walking is also very helpful to those of us who are stuck inside a classroom, our houses or office cubicles day in and day out, with little change from the monotony of school,the office or house work. In fact, if you are considering walking to lose weight, there are many options you can explore on how to go about this. Walk with a friend or group of friends to keep yourself motivated. If you need time to think, walk by yourself to clear your head. Walking is just as flexible as you are. Walking to lose weight may not sound like the most exciting, revolutionary or scientific idea you’ve heard. It almost sounds too simple – the notion that you can lose weight by by doing something as everyday as walking. Walking to lose weight is ideal because almost anyone regardless of age can do it.
Walking is an easy way to start a weight loss program, just be sure to start slow and use lots of common sense. Start out by running for 30 seconds every 10 minutes of the walk. Start with 15 minute walks per day at an easy pace and increase it by five minutes per day if you can, until you reach 60 minutes a day most days of the week. As your fitness level increases, you can raise
the intensity of your walking to increase the number of calories you burn. This builds a healthy habit. If you can’t take an hour a day to exercise, go less on some days but keep to your walking routine. Fast walking may be the most preferable combination of both, as it makes you burn calories and does not require too much time. Fast walking has the advantage of involving your cardiovascular system more intensively. You improve heart condition and increase fitness level. Walking to lose
weight is the simplest but most effective cardiovascular exercise there is. Walking for a whole mile at a steady medium pace burns up as much calories as jogging for 15 minutes - minus the strain on the knees and ankles too. Instead of taking walking for granted, get started today and burn the fat and build the muscle that will get you into shape quickly. Instead of getting in the car to visit a neighbor, walk over. If you are going to the mall, park further away from the building and walk in and back. Take the stairs instead of using
