11 Biggest Fitness Myths

Exercise-Myths1

Here is a link to womenshealthmag.com with an article on 13 fitness myths.

http://www.womenshealthmag.com/fitness/fitness-myths-0

Two of the 13 fitness myths are actually true for many humans based upon my personal knowledge and experience.

TRUTH: You don’t need to exercise every day and can in fact skip exercise for a week or months and not cause any bad effects on your body. You may not feel as wide awake and energized and relieved of stress if you don’t exercise daily but most of us, excluding old people with muscle stiffness problems, don’t exercise daily and survive just fine.

TRUTH: Working out can make some humans hungry. Some people may not get hungry after a workout, especially if they exercise on a daily basis and have established a standard routine of eating and exercising. I on the other hand from personal experience do frequently feel hungry after heavy exercise because I live a rather sedentary life and don’t exercise or eat on a regular basis. After I suddenly exercise vigorously my body demands food and I feel hungry.

MYTH: You can target your fat burn

MYTH: You shouldn’t work out on an empty stomach

MYTH: No pain, no gain

MYTH: You should stretch before you work out

MYTH: Lifting heavy weights bulks you up

MYTH: Exercise machines beat free weights

MYTH: Running on a treadmill is as effective as running outside

MYTH: You can’t work out when your sick

MYTH: Sweating means your out of shape

MYTH: Crunches are the best moves for your core

MYTH: Running beats walking

STOP COUNTING CALORIES!!!!!!

1313397701_big_fish_vs_small_fish

If you eat LESS over processed over refined carbohydrates and sugars your body is getting less bad nutrition and your body will continue CRAVING for BETTER quality nutrition. You will continue to feel hungry and unsatisfied. You need more quality nutrition and less of a quantity of bad nutrition.

We are omnivores and that means that unless we have an allergy we can eat anything which is classified as a natural food. Eat VARIED nutrient dense foods such as raw milk (pasturized milk is second best), blood sausage, eggs, nuts, meat, fish, grains, seeds, fruits and vegetables. You will feel satiated or full much sooner and WILL wind up eating a smaller quantity of food. Natural certified organic food is all good for you and that includes all natural fats, proteins, and carbohydrates which exist in whole foods.

Less than 40% of the population can eat anything including fast food and not gain weight. The rest of us were genetically programed to be on the plump side sooner or later in life and if you try to fight biology you will fail and be miserable trying unsuccessfully to reduce weight by large amounts.

Don’t be afraid to EXPERIMENT with new better foods. Try new natural organic foods and don’t be afraid that they will poison you or cause illness. They won’t. They are not weird and dangerous foods but foods which are good for you in moderation. VARIETY is the spice of life and will keep your meals healthy, interesting, and satisfying. HAPPY HEALTHY EATING!!!

13 EXERCISE MYTHS

Young Couple Jogging at the Beach

If you burn about 200 calories working out for about half an hour you are losing 200 calories of fat.

You lose almost no fat at all because your body first uses up its glycogen calorie reserves in the muscles and liver. You may lose very little weight because of water dehydration but you quickly gain back the water weight lost when you drink something. If you are using an exercise machine and it says that you have used up 200 calories that does not mean that you have lost 200 calories of fat.

Exercising turns fat into muscle

Fat cells and muscle cells are located in different parts of the body and a fat cell does not change into a muscle cell when you exercise.

Working on your abs muscles will reduce belly fat.

You will not lose belly fat because any loss in fat is distributed throughout the whole body and just exercising your abs will not only not reduce belly fat but will not reduce fat in your body during exercise. Only much less caloric intake or eating much less will reduce some weight if any and if you are eating more than 500 calories a day you will probably not lose any weight at all.

Stretching is best before a workout

Cardio is best before a workout because it starts blood flow and warms up the muscles preparing them for a strenuous workout and preventing injury. You really don’t need a strenuous workout so cardio and stretching is a waste of time. Stretching after a workout is fine but there is no scientific evidence that it does anything beneficial to your body.

Weight lifting will bulk up women

Women do not have testosterone levels which are needed to build muscle mass so lifting heavy weights will not bulk you up during a regular exercise session.

You need 8 glasses of water daily

Drink only when thirsty because you get most of your water from the food you eat and that will probably be only one or two glasses of water a day.

Going gluten free with energy bars etc. will make you lose more weight

Unless you have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, there is no reason to avoid gluten and realistically most gluten free foods have twice the carbs and much more sugar than regular versions of the same food. There is no scientific evidence that gluten affects weight loss.

You are too old to get in shape.

You are never too old to get in shape as long as you can move your feet or arms. If you have never exercised then start off with five to ten minute walks and gradually increase it to about 20 minutes. You don’t have to exercise every day and two to three times a week is usually all the exercise that you need.

You need a long workout

As mentioned in the first myth you don’t lose fat during regular exercise and if you do go and exercise for very long periods of time you will probably only burn about 200 calories per hour or lose about half an ounce of fat per hour beyond the first hour of exercise.

You will get back the fat by only eating about two slices of bread after exercising so there is no point in exercising a long time to reduce weight because you won’t lose weight unless you starve yourself by taking in less than the minimum amount of calories which you need on a daily basis.

You need a gym membership to get results

Weight lifting for 30 minutes will not lose any fat because your glycogen will be burned up first. Any exercise done at home is just as beneficial to your health.

No pain no gain

The truth is that if you are experiencing pain your body is telling you to stop or at least slow down what you are doing until the pain goes away.

Exercising at night interferes with sleep

Exercising before going to sleep makes you more tired and more likely to fall asleep but you do need a few minutes to relax from strenuous exercise just before sleeping. Moderate exercise will not interfere with sleep but strenuous exercise is not recommended immediately before bedtime.

More hard exercise is always better

The truth is that too much exercise of the same kind will burn you out. Your muscles need relaxation and quality varied exercise is better than quantity single type exercise.

THE TRUTH ABOUT LONGEVITY

happy-old-people-REVERSED-630x414

In wild nature you are programmed to live only so long by your genes and the only major other influence is injuries and disease which result in starvation or death.  If wild animals are fed their natural diet and protected from lethal diseases they will live out their natural lifespan and die a natural death.

Humans are also programmed to live only so long by their genes and if they ate certified organic food all their lives and moderately moved around and were accident free they would live out their maximum lifespans.

Personality, culture, religion, education, employment, income, marriage, living single, weight, happiness, stress, and many more environmental factors have no one to one correspondence with longevity.

If you or other humans were fed properly throughout your life and had adequate shelter and basic protection from deadly infectious diseases it would not matter one bit whether you had a bad personality, lived in a lousy culture, had poor education, were not religious but had a moral code to guide you, were unemployed with no income, were not happy, and were not married. You would still live out your optimal lifespan.

There is no scientific proof and there never will be that factors such as personality, culture, etc. affect lifespan with a one to one correspondence.

Statistical analyses are just probabilities which don’t prove anything with certainty in human behavior. It just provides behavioral pseudo scientists in the behavioral field with a nice income for their families and nothing more. It is bullshit science!

Conclusion: Eat the best varied certified organic food which you can afford or get, move around moderately, and try to live accident free and you will live out your natural lifespan predetermined by nature.

Where humans eat more natural varied food that is where they live longer. France and England are genetically similar and France is about 5th in longevity compared to England which is about 14th and a more varied more natural diet is possibly the reason.

Yes, there will be manufactured live organs and replacement parts for your body in the not so distant future and this will increase your lifespan to some extent if you live long enough to be a recipient of these biological scientific miracles.

HOW TO MINIMIZE STRESS

office-job-16x9-021511

subset: n. a thing            duration: n. a period of time

In one sentence here is how to reduce stress:

TAKE SOME TIME OUT TO DO SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT  or  STOP YOUR WORK FOR DURATION AND DO A DIFFERENT SUBSET(S)!!!!!!

Not all jobs permit you to take about 5 minute breaks every hour from the stressful activity which you are doing but taking breaks is how you can refresh your mind and then successfully continue on with the stressful activity.

During a strenuous exercise routine, resting or taking a break to recharge your body’s energy supply is the smart thing to do.

During strenuous or stressful mental exercise, taking a break to get the mind out of it’s over excited state is the smart thing to do.

In an office setting where you are sedentary most of the time take a break and

walk around,

do in place exercises suchas deep knee bends, jumping jacks, running in place, pushups, and stretching,

meditate,

daydream,

call home and chat briefly,

sip on a unsweet beverage,

eat an unsweet snack of fruits and nuts,

puff on a cigarette but don’t inhale,

talk to a coworker who isn’t busy doing something important,

or do more than one of the above suggested activities.

In some jobs it may be possible to take a break every two or three or four hours for more than 5 minutes so do it whenever possible and do one or more of the above suggested activities.

6 REASONS YOU ARE PROBABLY OVERWEIGHT!!!!!!

fat_beach_420-420x0

You were born overweight most likely because one or both of your parents is also overweight. Be proud to be born that way even though you will be socially ridiculed and offended by nasty comments. Extra weight in nature means that you are better prepared than others to survive food shortages or famines. We no longer have severe famines or food shortages but your odds of surviving one if it exists in the distant future will be larger.

You are getting older and nature puts on more weight or calories since getting older historically meant that you would get less food from your social network and nature puts on more fat so you don’t starve and can survive.

You are a woman after her second or third pregnancy and nature puts on more calories or fat in anticipation of the historical fact that there will be less food to go around and you will be sharing some with your offspring.

You are overeating and eating two or three times a day and truthfully you should be only eating when you are hungry and drinking only when thirsty and if that means not eating anything a whole day then that is normal and you won’t die of starvation. Don’t force your offspring to eat three times a day if they are not hungry, especially breakfast. If they don’t want to eat dinner or lunch don’t force them to do so since they can skip three to four or more meals without starving and you will cure them of a lifelong habit of overeating! Soft drinks and energy drinks don’t quench your thirst but keep you thirsty so you will drink more sweet drinks. Chose water or seltzer water or beer or coffee or unsweetened tea or naturally sweet fruit juices without added sugar instead. You can also make your own flavored water by cutting pieces of fruit or herbs and adding them to water or letting them flavor your water naturally.

You are eating too many sugary overly processed foods rich in carbohydrates which are notorious for putting on extra weight. The artificially added fructose in sugar is shutting off you satiation chemical and the brain is responding by asking for more food. The solution is to eat as much and as great a variety of certified organic food as possible with natural fat content which will satiate you sooner and naturally make you eat less food. Natural fats and proteins and carbohydrates are healthy for you if gotten from unprocessed food.

You are addicted to sugary foods and snacks and drinks and are eating too many of them. The solution is to avoid them completely and if you can’t stop completely then eat processed sweet foods once or twice a week and consider them to be treats. Naturally sweet fruits should be eaten and will not cause you to overeat and gain more weight than you should naturally and should satisfy your craving for sweetness.

Conclusion: If you find a food or drink with sugar added don’t buy it and if you buy it have it only once or twice a week!!!!!! Eat a great variety of certified organic food only when hungry and include a blood sausage about once a week. Drink raw milk if you can find it and pasturized milk if you can’t with your meals once in a while. Drink water only when thirsty or other unsweetened beverages. If you don’t lose much weight and your health doesn’t improve much live with it then be proud of your weight because that is the way that nature intended for you to be. Any metabolic illness which you still might have will not be cured by good nutrition and you will have to live with your bad health for a lifetime.

EXERCISE BONUS TIPS:

Don’t try to lose weight exercising because you only burn about 120 calories walking fast for 30 minutes. Most humans eat much over 500 calories every day so you will not lose any weight just by exercising. It is a myth that exercise alone will make you lose some weight!!!!!!

Exercise moderately to keep your body toned but you don’t need to do it more than about two or three times a week for 20 minutes and you don’t need exercise equipment to do it. If you are a lazy exerciser then just walk fast outdoors or on a treadmill for about  20 minutes.

One room in the house or a six by six foot free space in a room can be an exercise room where natural human exercise movements can be done without the aid of most artificial devices which build up the body in unnatural ways.  Such movements as pushups and/or squat thrusts and/or sit ups and/or deep knee bends and/or running in place and/or spinning in place and/or jumping jacks and/or jumping up and down instead of jumping rope which limits the degrees of freedom that your hands can exercise during the jumping and/or chin ups and/or an assortment of aerobic moves and/or weaponless martial arts moves should be popular forever.

When doing jumping jacks or jumping up and down don’t stay in one place but move around the room even spinning around while doing them and flex your knees a little and move in many patterns over the floor. Feel free to jump to different heights while doing jumping jacks and make it a nonboring real blast of a cardio workout. Also during the jumping jacks feel free to bend at the waist and twist the torso too and flail the hands around at the joints and bend the elbows. Be a wild and crazy gal or guy and enjoy yourself. That is true utilitarian personal creativity which is so rare in society!!!

WEIGHT LOSS MYTHS AND REALITIES!!!!!!

130022495846103515_glenn_family Myth: Most humans can lose weight with exercise or consuming less calories or eating low carbohydrate foods or eating a vegan diet or eating mostly protein or taking appetite suppressing pills or taking hormones.

Truth: Severely obese humans will lose some weight by limiting their caloric intake only. For the majority of us, without a starvation diet, we will basically remain at the same weight which we were genetically programmed to be at.  As we grow older many of us are programmed genetically to put on more weight as a natural reaction which anticipates less food in old age. Many store more calories in the form of fat for food emergencies or famines which modern society no longer has so most of us get fatter as we age because our caloric intake remains relatively constant. Less than 50% of the population does not gain weight even if they overeat because they have been genetically programmed to stay thin for an entire lifetime thanks to an efficient regulating natural metabolism. If you were born natuarally overweight be proud of your weight because if we do have a famine in the distant future you will be prepared with a fat reserve which will increase your odds of surviving it.

Many women in their thirties have a second or third offspring and suddenly start to gain weight without changing their lifestyles. This is only a genetically programmed natural reaction because more offspring in nature means that the same quantity of food will have to be shared because it historically meant less food for the wife, especially older females. That is why many women start putting on more weight after pregnancies so that they will have more energy stored up in their bodies in anticipation of having to share food with the offspring and having to eat less because of a historical constant supply of food.

In modern society more offspring does not mean less food for mothers yet they still put on more weight and put on more weight than usual since their caloric intake or the amount of food they eat remains the same and they don’t have to share their food with offspring.

For men this truth translates into not making nasty comments about the plumpness of your spouse and constant reminders that she should lose weight which is impossible without a starvation diet and constant hunger pangs. Live with your overweight spouse and respect the fact that she has no power to control her weight because this is how nature intended it to be. It will only result in yo yo diets and scientifically unproven methods to lose weight. In the short run your wife may lose some weight but in the long run she will gain it all back and maybe even add a few more pounds.

My father constantly complained about my mother’s overweight after I was born, the second offspring, and I seldom saw her eat more than a buttered piece of bread in old age and I know she was suffering from bad nutrition without enough variety of nutritious foods in her life. She got kidney cancer at about age 65 and lived five more years after the operation but I basically blame my father who lived to be 99 for sending my mother to an early grave with his lose weight terror tactics encouraged by mythological social brainwashing which caused her to eat badly and caused terminal illness in the long duration.

There are 3500 calories in a pound of fat. You lose about 100 calories by walking a mile and about 120 by running at about 6 miles per hour for thirty minutes. You would theoretically have to run 29 times for thirty minutes to lose one pound of fat or run for 15 hours to burn off one pound of fat. If you didn’t eat a daily caloric intake of about 1000 to 1500 calories eating three times a day this means that you should be losing about half a pound of fat a day. The truth is that no one automatically loses or burns half a pound of fat a day by exercising or not eating at all for a day.

My wife after her second pregnancy started gaining weight. We both can survive and not lose weight on about 500 calories a day each eating only one nutritious varied meal. I weigh about 175 pounds and she weighs about 212 pounds but was born to be overweight based on inaccurate social and medical norms which wrongly assume that every human should be at a perfect normal average weight for their age.

Eating 3500 calories less does not mean that you will lose a pound of fat. There is no one to one correspondence and it is a large myth maintained by the propaganda of the weight loss industry. Less food eaten does not automatically mean less weight for most of us.

Old calorie tables which recommend daily calorie intake are outdated and humans leading sedentary lives can eat less than 500 calories a day and not lose weight!!!!!! That means that most humans in developed countries are eating about three to four times more food than they need to survive at a constant weight. This means that Americans could feed about a billion more people with the food they should not be eating and if you take into consideration the fact that about 50% of grown food is thrown away by growers which doesn’t meet appearance perfection standards, America could support a billion and a half more humans with the food which is grown on a yearly basis. Believe it or Not!!!!!!

The biggest danger is taking an appetite suppression drug or taking one hormone pill to reduce weight. Taking an excess of one hormone to equalize the level of your hormone at an older age to be at a level it was during youth is unnatural and the hormone will not only not cause you to lose weight but it will start to ruin your natural metabolism and affect tens of other body chemicals. This puts your metabolism out of balance and causes long duration bad health problems and even susceptibility to cancer.

Appetite suppression pills frequently give you a sense of an unnatural emotional high and cause you to eat very little. Not only is the quantity of the food eaten reduced but so is the quality of the food eaten reduced with less nutritious variety included in what you do proceed to eat. The chemically induced delusion that you are losing weight causes long duration side effects and a damaged body metabolism if taken for a long time. As soon as you stop taking the appetite suppressant you gain whatever weight you lost back again and sometimes even gain more weight since your body tries to compensate for the period of time that you were living on fewer calories or less food eaten.

Read the side effects of most appetite suppression pills which are used for a very long time and at relatively large doses and it will frighten you. Using any drug pill to reduce weight permanently with daily doses will unbalance your metabolism given enough time and your good health will suffer.

Eating low fat processed foods with much carbohydrates and unnatural sugar quantities added will suppress your body satiation chemical and cause you to eat more of the low fat processed foods and you will wind up eating more calories which readily will be converted to fat, especially the sugar. Eat artificially sweetened poisonous food without calories and your long duration health will suffer from an unbalanced metabolism.

A vegan diet is frequently not successful because you eat too many calories with too much pasta, bread, french fries, dairy-free chocolate, and nuts and you end up gaining weight, not losing it. If you ate just fruits and vegetables in their natural state you may lose some weight but be deficient in vitamin B12 and other vital nutrients which you get from protein and fat foods. We are omnivores and that means that we should be eating a balanced diet of plant and animal carbohydrates and fats and proteins.

A lopsided artificial protein diet is not advisable because it can result in keytosis and liver damage and many other health problems because your body is not getting enough fats and carbohydrates to stay healthy.

Partial conclusions: Exercising for half an hour a day will not reduce your weight but may in fact cause you to be hungrier and overeat because you have lost body calories and your body will ask you to eat more and refill your body calorie storage space. It is a guarantee that you will eat more calories after exercising than you lost exercising.

Some humans are born with a tendency to gain weight and others are not. If you are gaining weight you are also probably eating too many processed foods with lopsided sugar amounts in them which will make your natural weight more if you were born to be naturally fatter.

Less than 50% of the population is gifted with good genes which can let you eat anything and any amount and not get overweight. Envying those humans and going on fad diets and not succeeding in weight reduction will only lead to greater depression and a sense of less selfworth.

Each generation of Americans is getting more overweight and the primary cause of it is eating too much processed highly refined sugary food which plagues grocery shelves. Once you gain weight it is not easy to decrease it but you can help the next generation of offspring to be thinner by making them eat a varied nutritious certified organic diet only when they are hungry and not force them to eat three times a day. If they are not hungry don’t force them to eat breakfast or lunch or even dinner. Keep them away from sugary foods and high carbohydrate unnatural foods such as sodas, sweets, desert, and processed snack foods. All of these unhealthy nutritionally bad foods can be treats once in a while or once a week but not every day of the week.

With age your metabolism naturally adjusts and makes many gain weight. Eating about one very varied meal once a day, especially unprocessed, varied, certified organic food will keep you healthily at your natural weight which may still be greater than you want it to be in your hopes and dreams. Learn to live with the new added weight because that is the fate of old age. You will be overweight but as healthy as you were naturally programmed to be!!!!!!

9 REASONS TOO MUCH SUGAR CAN BE VERY BAD FOR YOU!!!!!!

bigstock_Spilling_Sugar_4293891

Sugar and high fructose corn syrup has too much fructose in it which only the liver can metabolize and it converts it into fat and causes metabolic imbalances which does not exist if you eat natural fruits which also have other nutrients with some fructose.

Pastries and sodas and candy bars have empty sugar calories without many minerals and vitamins so you are eating a lopsided food with almost no nutritional value.

Eating much sugar with fructose can cause deposition of fat in the liver and lead to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease.

Too many calories from fructose can lead to serious bad effects on blood markers in as little as 10 weeks with increases in blood triglycerides and dense LDL and very bad oxidized LDL and fat in the abdominal cavity and decreased insulin sensitivity.

Excess fructose consumption can lead to insulin resistance which can contribute to increased obesity and diabetes in many humans.

Excess sugar consumption is linked with many serious diseases such as type II diabetes and cardiovascular disease and obesity

Glucose and fructose consumption was compared and it showed that you feel hungrier with fructose intake than with glucose which means that you will probably have a tendency to overeat on a high fructose diet.

Sugar intake releases dopamine in the brain giving us pleasure and excess sugar intake causes so much dopamine release that it can be considered to be addictive in nature with classic signs of addiction.

Fructose causes leptin hormone resistance which translates into not feeling full and eating more than you should. If you want to eat less then sugar must not be part of the meal.

Conclusion: Excess sugar which contains much fructose can lead to serious health problems and is addictive and will cause you to overeat.

Eat pastries and candies and drink sodas in moderation to avoid the very bad effects of excess sugar consumption.

If you are addicted to sweets have them every other day and eventually once every three days and you will be eating sweets in moderation.

If a food has sugar added to it as an extra ingredient don’t buy it if it is not naturally sweet!!!!!!

8 LIES FROM FITNESS “EXPERTS” YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT!!!!!!

Lies from Jackie Warner:

From Jackie Warner

Avoid These Three Mistakes

Are you making one of the three mistakes celebrity trainer Jackie Warner advises against? Setting goals that are too ambitious, shying away from resistance training and failing to incorporate superstar foods like grapefruit and oatmeal into your diet all can hinder your progress. Watch

 

Truths:

You don’t need ambitious goals unless you are into building body mass as a weight lifter or muscular body builder. Most people just need to tone their bodies with fast body movements about 3 times a week or even less for about 20 minutes or less. Resistance training is unnatural and should not be done at all unless you are a body builder. There is no superstar food like grapefruit and oatmeal in your diet. The truth is that 100% of certified organic foods are superstar foods and you should be eating as large a variety of them as possible.

Lies from Jackie Warner:

From Jackie Warner

Stop Doing Crunches

Big movements like squats and pushups are better at achieving a flatter belly than crunches because they work your core significantly. Do these in place of crunches for a more effective belly workout. Watch

Truths:

There is no scientific proof that squats and pushups and crunches will give you a flatter belly. Pushups primarily exercise your hands and not your core whatever that means. Localizing exercise will build up muscles in that localized area but the loss of fat occurs equally throughout the body and has little to do with localized exercise of a body part. If you exercised your thigh muscles would your cellulite disappear almost overnight or ever? The truthful answer is a resounding no!

Lies from Ellie Krieger:

From Ellie Krieger

Add Protein To Post-Workout Meals

Include protein in meals after working up a sweat. It will help your body absorb carbohydrates better. A combination of the two will help your body replenish after working out. Watch

Truths:

Fats are just as important in replenishing your body after an intensive bodily workout. People don’t just survive on proteins and carbohydrates!

Lies from Joy Bauer:

From Joy Bauer

Don’t Skip Snacks

Go for snacks that are calorie controlled — 150 calories or less is a good rule of thumb. When your stomach is growling, try a piece of fruit like a banana or peach with a handful of nuts; a granola bar; or roasted edamame.Watch

Truths:

You should eat only when hungry and should shy away from snacking because it will turn you into a nonstop daily eating machine with your stomach constantly growling asking for food during the day. Snacking is a recipe for overeating in small quantities. Have one hearty belly filling meal once a day with plenty of variety foods and drink and you can stop counting calories in your life. If you have a tendency to be fat change your diet radically to better food and you won’t be wasting your time calorie counting.

Lies from Lacy Stone:

From Lacey Stone

Keep Moving Throughout The Day

Sitting for extended periods at your desk during the work day raises the risk for developing heart disease. Interrupting long periods of sitting at your desk at work with two minute breaks of light or moderate-intensity activity such as walking and stretching can help curb risks of increased glucose and insulin levels.

Truths:

Sitting at a desk does not increase the risk for developing heart disease if you are eating a wide variety of healthy food in your life. Increased glucose and insulin levels only exist if you pump your body full of soda a sweet foods and snacks during working hours. There is no risk of increased dangerous levels of glucose and insulin if you are sedentary and moderate your sugar input during the day.

Lift Weights To Keep Your Body Young

As women age, relying on impact exercises alone is a mistake. Resistance training keeps your bones strong and stimulates muscle growth — and the more muscle you have, the more fat you’ll burn, even when you’re not exercising. Watch

Truths:

Your bones will remain strong whether or not you exercise if you eat a healthy wide variety of organic food in your life. Even in old age when confined to a wheelchair eating healthy will keep your bones strong and a minimum of natural body movement exercise will keep your body as fit as possible under natural geriatric old age degradation. If you are genetically going to suffer from osteoporosis in later life there is nothing you can realistically do about it. The more muscle that you have does not mean that you will burn more fat and get thinner because once body builders stop exercising they get fat quickly in many cases by overeating. There is no correspondence between muscle mass and losing weight. Finally lifting weights will not stop the natural aging process of your body.

Lies from Terri Walsh:

Knock Out A Fitness Plateau

If your workouts aren’t having an effect on your body anymore, you might have reached a fitness plateau. This happens when your body gets used to its exercise routine and workouts become too easy. The secret to busting out of a plateau is switch up your workouts to keep your body guessing. Change your resistance, your speed or the amount of time you’re doing to keep getting results. Watch

Truths:

A fitness plateau just means that you are exercising the same amount of time each day or whenever you exercise. To get out of a fitness plateau you have to increase the time which you exercise or increase the resistance on your machines. The truth is that you shouldn’t be using resistance machines in the first place unless you are a body builder but should stick with natural body movement exercises.

Lies from Terri Walsh:

Go Heavier On The Weights

You’ve incorporated weight training into your workout — great job! But routinely raising the amount of pounds you lift will reap even more benefits. As a general rule of thumb, once you can do 15 reps of an exercise without resting, you should increase the weights. Women, go up 5 to 10 pounds; men can increase by 15 to 20 pounds. Watch

Truths:

You are not a body builder so you don’t have to lift heavier weights. Why should you? Do you want to be strong enough to lift 90 pound bags of concrete mix onto your shoulders? Most people don’t need extra strength in their lives or at work.

Fat burning and muscle repair happen at bedtime. If you’re not getting enough sleep, your body isn’t functioning as well as it can. Additionally, when you’re sleep deprived, your body releases cortisol, a hormone that increases ab fat deposits — yes, the dreaded lower belly fat.

Truths:

Cortisol is a hormone which circulates through the entire body and is not just responsible for ab fat deposits or belly fat which should not be feared or dreaded because depositing fat throughout your body is a natural reaction to overeating if you are susceptible to weight gain in the first place. There are plenty of skinny people laughing at the myths which pervade the mythological industry of weight losing amongst people who are naturally fat to begin with. Skinny people eat boatloads of fats and carbohydrates and proteins and never get fat. Change your diet to a healthy one and live with your naturally plump body.

For more truths about exercise and eating I have included two of my blogs.

THE SEVEN PRINCIPLES OF EXCLUDING A BAD HABIT(S) FROM YOUR LIFE!!!

jjwp348

HOW DO YOU EXCLUDE A BAD HABIT?

  1. PRIORITIZE YOUR BAD HABITS AND TRY TO CHANGE THE LEAST BAD ONES FIRST
  2.  DECREASE THE BAD HABIT’S SIZE
  3.  DECREASE THE AMOUNT OF TIME USED ON THE BAD HABIT
  4.  DECREASE THE FREQUENCY OF THE BAD HABIT
  5. REPLACE PART OR ALL OF THE BAD HABIT WITH A GOOD HABIT AND/OR MANY SMALL GOOD HABITS. MAKE A LIST OF ALL THE GOOD HABITS WHICH WILL REPLACE THE BAD ONES SO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR GOOD HABITS ARE IF YOU HAVE ANY.
  6. MAKE A LIST OF ALL THE GOOD THINGS WHICH WILL HAPPEN IF YOU EXCLUDE THE BAD HABITS. THE ANSWER IS ALWAYS THAT YOU WILL SAVE TIME AND ENERGY AND MONEY WHICH YOU WASTE ON THE BAD HABIT!!!
  7. REPEAT YOUR GOOD HABITS MORE FREQUENTLY AND THE OLD BAD HABITS WILL NOT RETURN AS SPEEDILY IF AT ALL BUT MAKE SURE THAT YOUR GOOD HABIT REPLACEMENTS ARE NOT GOING TO COST YOU MORE MONEY THAN THE OLD ONES DID!!!!!!
  8. A LIST OF GOOD HABITS TO CHOOSE FROM.

TRY TO CHANGE YOUR SMALLEST BAD HABITS FIRST AND IF YOU SUCCEED YOU WILL HAVE THE COURAGE TO TRY AND EXCLUDE THE WORST BAD HABITS WHICH YOU THINK YOU HAVE.

IF YOU EAT TOO MUCH AND TALK TOO MUCH ON THE PHONE OR HANG OUT WITH FRIENDS TOO MUCH IN PERSON OR ON THE INTERNET AND IMPULSE SHOP TOO MUCH START BY CUTTING BACK ON TALKING ON THE PHONE OR HANGING OUT WITH FRIENDS FIRST WHICH IS THE EASIEST BAD HABIT TO TRY AND DECREASE IN SIZE AND FREQUENCY. EXCLUDE TOO MUCH IMPULSE SHOPPING NEXT AND DECREASE EATING TOO MUCH LAST.

YOU CAN REDUCE THE SIZE OF A HABIT SPACIALLY BY USING LESS OF WHAT IS PART OF YOUR BAD HABIT. IF YOU EAT TOO MUCH DECREASE THE AMOUNT OF FOOD WHICH YOU PUT ON THE PLATE OR EAT HALF OF THE FAST FOOD WHICH YOU ORDER.

IF YOU SMOKE TOO MUCH TAKE HALF OF THE CIGARETTES OUT OF THE PACK AND ONLY SMOKE WHAT IS IN THE PACK FOR THE WHOLE DAY.

IF YOU ARE A 2 PACK A DAY SMOKER DECREASE TO 1 PACK A DAY. IF YOU DRINK LARGE CUPS OF COFFEE OR SODA DECREASE THAT TO DRINKING A SMALL SIZE CUP OF COFFEE OR SODA.

DECREASE THE AMOUNT OF TIME MEANS THAT YOU USE LESS TIME ON A BAD ACTIVITY OR BAD HABIT.

IF YOU SPEND 20 MINUTES EATING A MEAL STOP AFTER 10 MINUTES AND DON’T EAT ANY MORE.

IF YOU SPEND 10 MINUTES ON AVERAGE TALKING TO FRIENDS DECREASE THAT TO 5 MINUTES OF TALKING. IF YOU WATCH TV TOO MUCH DECREASE THE TIME THAT YOU WATCH A PROGRAM AND MAYBE EVEN STOP WATCHING A HALF HOUR PROGRAM AFTER THE FIRST 15 MINUTES. IF YOU ARE WATCHING TOO MUCH SPORTING ACTIVITY DECREASE THE TIME ON WATCHING SPORTS TOO.

YOU CAN REDUCE THE FREQUENCY OF THE BAD HABIT SO THAT INSTEAD OF GOING ONCE A WEEK TO A MOVIE GO ONLY ONCE EVERY TWO WEEKS. IF YOU EAT THREE TIMES A DAY AND DRINK 6 TIMES A DAY DECREASE THE FREQUENCY BY A THIRD AND ONLY EAT ONCE A DAY AND DRINK ONLY TWICE A DAY.

IF YOU GO TO BARS ONCE EVERY WEEK CUT DECREASE THE FREQUENCY TO ONCE EVERY TWO WEEKS. IF YOU SMOKE ONCE EVERY 15 MINUTES DECREASE THAT TO SMOKING ONLY ONE EVERY HALF HOUR AND YOU HAVE DECREASED THE SMOKING FREQUENCY BY A HALF.

YOU CAN REPLACE PART OF A BAD HABIT WITH SMALLER GOOD ONES. IF YOU WATCH TV TOO MUCH TAKE TIME OFF AND GO ON THE INTERNET FOR ENTERTAINMENT FOR HALF THE TIME AND DON’T WATCH YOUR LEAST FAVORITE SHOWS ON TV ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE ONE AFTER THE OTHER.

FIND OTHER INTERESTING ACTIVITIES OR GOOD HABITS WHICH YOU HAVE AND INSERT THEM INTO A BAD HABIT TO START BREAKING IT UP A BIT. YOU CAN TRY GOING COLD TURKEY AND STOPPING THE BAD HABIT ENTIRELY BUT THEN TRY TO REPLACE THE TIME USED ON IT WITH ONE OF YOUR GOOD HABITS AND DO THEM INSTEAD.

AFTER HAVING MADE A LIST OF ALL YOUR GOOD HABITS MAKE SURE THAT YOU REPEAT THEM AS FREQUENTLY AS YOU CAN IN YOUR LIFE SO THE BAD HABITS WILL NOT SUCCEED IN SEEPING BACK INTO YOUR BETTER LIFE!!!

A LIST OF GOOD HABITS IF YOU DON’T HAVE ANY OR WOULD LIKE TO HAVE SOME IN YOUR LIFE:

5 NEW BEST WAYS TO RELIEVE STRESS NATURALLY!!!

Clouds of reef fish and corals, French frigate shoals, NWHI

Set up a high definition TV in an exercise room or use a wall projector in the exercise room to show scenes of wildlife running or predators chasing prey. If you can’t afford a separate exercise room then turn on your wide screen TV in the living room or whichever room you have a TV screen in. WHAT KIND OF EXERCISE DO WE REALLY NEED?

1.      Then exercise for about 15 minutes in front of the screen with exercises recommended in my blog at uldissprogis.com 12/29/2012.

 2.     Then if you are hungry sit down to a meal which contains a lot of tryptophan which just means eat something with a little meat in it, a blood sausage, and some milk to drink which will make you satiated and want to rest just like lions want to rest after gorging on a big meal of meat and blood!!! Babies also want to fall asleep after a good meal on raw breast milk so consider adding some raw milk to your diet if you can afford it or find it.

 3.     Follow this up by resting comfortably in a couch and watch some entertaining and inspiring scenes of wildlife playing or having fun in a family setting. You can also look at majestic scenes from nature such as videos of Iguazu falls, the Great Barrier Reef and other awesome nature scenes that are your favorite places to view.

 4.     If you are a woman and like to take a soothing restful luxurious warm bath accompany it with your favorite wildlife scenes projected on the wall with natural wildlife sounds that are soothing to hear.

 5.     Get plenty of restful sleep and to help you to fall asleep project some very serene videos of wildlife or wild landscapes on your bedroom screen and use a timer and set it up to turn itself off in about an hour which should be enough time to fall asleep naturally and get a good night’s rest until morning.

 If you follow these 5 steps in order and do it for about a week and still can’t relieve stress and have trouble falling asleep then you may consider going into another line of work since the one you are in is stressing you out so much that there is no cure for your stressful life and lack of sleep!!!

You can also play a soothing song and I have included this sample. Enjoy!!!

WHAT KIND OF EXERCISE DO WE REALLY NEED?

636-01316124

MYTH: A daily standardized repetitive schedule of exercise is necessary for good health.

TRUTH: Young children get enough exercise by moving around all day and they don’t have to run to stay healthy. Teenagers don’t need daily exercise if they move during the day and they don’t have to run. We no longer need to hunt and chase wild animals so running should be necessary in the near future. The best kind of exercise would be to have teenagers work for about 4 hours a day in a safe job in the real world at less than minimum wage. They will get plenty of exercise on the job especially in a fast food outlet or urban farming and don’t need to participate in an exercise routine on a daily basis.

The truth is that one 15 minute open source exercise video can be used to teach basic body conditioning routines for humans who are not athletes.

An exercise routine does not need artificial workout aids such as resistance machines since exercising the body without help from mechanical devices is the most natural and best exercising.  Few people get a kick out of going to gyms and that is their right but the majority of people don’t have to formalize their exercise routine and can do just as well with their own private exercising routines at home. Selfmotivation is essential but this can be indoctrinated in elementary school and by parents who promote selfexercise by example.

One room in the house or a six by six foot free space in a room can be an exercise room where natural human exercise movements can be done without the aid of most artificial devices which build up the body in unnatural ways.  Such movements as pushups and/or squat thrusts and/or sit ups and/or deep knee bends and/or running in place and/or spinning in place and/or jumping jacks and/or jumping up and down instead of jumping rope which limits the degrees of freedom that your hands can exercise during the jumping and/or chin ups and/or an assortment of aerobic moves and/or weaponless martial arts moves should be popular forever.

When doing jumping jacks or jumping up and down don’t stay in one place but move around the room even spinning around while doing them and flex your knees a little and move in many patterns over the floor. Feel free to jump to different heights while doing jumping jacks and make it a nonboring real blast of a cardio workout. Also during the jumping jacks feel free to bend at the waist and twist the torso too and flail the hands around at the joints and bend the elbows. Be a wild and crazy gal or guy and enjoy yourself. That is true utilitarian personal creativity which is so rare in society!!!

Climbing trees is the best way to exercise the body in a natural way but this can be  hazardous and unnecessary to build good body coordination and fitness.

The truth is that nonathletes can exercise thoroughly at home or playing cotennis so there should be no physical education in Public Schools for all students.  Cotennis is covered in this book and is a form of agility training which is one of the best exercises in the world to develop all round health for the whole family.

Team sports are highly overrated as a form of exercise for individuals since most people do not have the luxury of gathering enough team players for two teams when they need or want to exercise.  Exercise is most practical when it can be done alone.  Team sports mostly glorify the athletically talented while most of the other players feel like losers or very incompetent.

Why should most of the student population go through feelings of athletic inadequacy playing team sports when they can be taught to successfully exceed personal fitness goals by gradual improvement and feel that they are truly making personal bodily fitness progress.  I can now do 100 jumping jacks instead of 50 is an objective desirable increase in physical fitness which achieves a sense of real individualized accomplishment which no relatively rare team goal scoring can achieve.

If you are an affluent teenager and have a tennis court available then do some agility exercise by playing cotennis with a family member and/or friend and/or partner.

Adults get enough exercise on the job unless they have sedentary jobs at a desk or computer. Here the recommendation is a speedy walk for about 20 minutes about three times a week. If you skip a week or a month without exercise it will not damage your health if you resume the speedy walking after the long duration. Some people are so healthy that they can go for years without any exercise regime because their lives are active enough with (caring for children and/or doing housework) and/or (shopping and/or visiting friends) and/or (going to public events and/or gardening) and/or etc.

Older people have to exercise their joints moderately if they sit around much during the day and do not walk but mostly sit all day and don’t depart the house for a leisurely walk once in a while. The muscles connecting the joints get stiff if not exercised and begin to atrophy which is a natural result of aging and the body can’t stay in shape without or with minimum movement.

If you begin to feel stiff in old age begin to moderately exercise those stiff joint muscles until the stiffness goes away.  If the stiffness does not go away with exercise then you are really getting old and you should exercise the stiff joint muscles every day to delay the beginning of even greater stiffness.

In old age we will all eventually be chair ridden or bedridden but even then you should not stop exercising the stiff joint muscles which you have so you will still be able to move around in the chair or bed to stay in the best shape possible.

When you are old the best form of exercise is utilitarian exercise. Do the dishes by hand and clean the floors and do the laundry by hand and try growing organic food in your garden if you have one to eat when the food is harvested. Stay as active as you can but don’t devote your time to trivial behaviors which are pointless and waste your time and energy and probably much money if it is an expensive hobby or pastime.
