Is Cardio Really the Secret to Fat Loss?

For many decades I would get up from sleep and do my cardio on my machine, (My cardio always preceded my weight training). I used to wonder if this was safe because I had not eaten, (In-taking of water was an exception), because I wondered if the body needed food to do a hard cardio followed with a hard workout.

But I felt it made sense to do cardio before food because I knew fat was stored energy, and in turn my body would have to use my fat for energy in turn depleting my fat storage. After all these decades it's a relief to finally start seeing reports that back up what "Just made sense to me" so many decades ago (Thus before getting my certifications).

I would like to add, I hear so many say not to do cardio, or they wont do cardio because it eats your muscle. If you know the amount of what your protein should be for the day, then this is prevented. So all you guys I see doing "Flexing" pics and all I see is fat where you guys seem to see muscle Get on a cardio workout already!

[08/02/16]   When can a child begin strength training?

During childhood, kids improve their body awareness, control and balance through active play. As early as age 7 or 8, however, strength training can become a valuable part of an overall fitness plan — as long as the child is mature enough to follow directions and practice proper technique and form.

If your child expresses an interest in strength training, remind him or her that strength training is meant to increase muscle strength and endurance. Bulking up is something else entirely — and most safely done after adolescence.

You might also check with your child's doctor for the OK to begin a strength training program, especially if your child has a known or suspected health problem — such as a heart condition, high blood pressure or a seizure disorder.
What's the best way to start a strength training program for kids?

A child's strength training program isn't necessarily a scaled-down version of what an adult would do. Keep these general principles in mind:

Seek instruction. Start with a coach or personal trainer who has experience with youth strength training. The coach or trainer can create a safe, effective strength training program based on your child's age, size, skills and sports interests. Or enroll your child in a strength training class designed for kids.
Warm up and cool down. Encourage your child to begin each strength training session with five to 10 minutes of light aerobic activity, such as walking, jogging in place or jumping rope. This warms the muscles and prepares them for more vigorous activity. Gentle stretching after each session is a good idea, too.
Keep it light. Kids can safely lift adult-size weights, as long as the weight is light enough. In most cases, one set of 12 to 15 repetitions is all it takes. The resistance doesn't have to come from weights, either. Resistance tubing and body-weight exercises, such as pushups, are other effective options.
Stress proper technique. Rather than focusing on the amount of weight your child lifts, stress proper form and technique during each exercise. Your child can gradually increase the resistance or number of repetitions as he or she gets older.
Supervise. Adult supervision by someone who knows proper strength training technique is an important part of youth strength training. Don't let your child go it alone.
Rest between workouts. Make sure your child rests at least one full day between exercising each specific muscle group. Two or three strength training sessions a week are plenty.
Keep it fun. Help your child vary the routine to prevent boredom.

Results won't come overnight. Eventually, however, your child will notice a difference in muscle strength and endurance — which might fuel a fitness habit that lasts a lifetime.

4 Simple Ways to Eat Clean

By now you are probably aware that the term, eat clean, has nothing to do with washing your food and has everything to do with eating in a way that promotes fat loss.

While it may sound simple enough, it's pretty challenging to stick with a clean eating plan. I suppose if it were easy then everyone would be lean and confident about their body.

So what's the secret to long-term, clean eating success? Here it is...

How-To-Eat-Clean Secret #1: Keep It Balanced So many fat loss strategies out there encourage eating only from one category of food: soup, grapefruit, salad, chicken breast...While these foods may promote fat loss and reduce overall calorie intake, this way of eating sets you up for a fall.

No one sticks with highly restrictive, one-food-only diets for very long, and you're no exception. To make your clean eating plan last, keep your diet balanced with a range of healthy, real foods.

How-To-Eat-Clean Secret #2: Don't Put a Label On It How many times have you uttered the words I'm on a diet? Ugh, just saying that puts one in the mood to cheat on said diet.

If eating clean means you're on a diet, then you're not committed enough to make this a way of life. True fat loss success comes when clean eating is second nature, and not a temporarily imposed sentence.

How-To-Eat-Clean Secret #3: Have Patience Wouldn't it be great if a week of clean eating could erase a decade worth of indulgences? But, alas, you didn't gain that fat in a week, and you won't lose it in a week either.

Look for, and acknowledge, each and every small victory along the way to your long-term goal. Notice each pound, each inch and each pant size. These accomplishments build on one another until you reach your ultimate goal. Just remember that big changes take consistent, long-term effort. Be patient.

How-To-Eat-Clean Secret #4: Have a Plan This is the most important step in your clean eating quest, without it you'll flounder around without direction and will likely find yourself starting into the bottom of a bowl of ice cream. Spend time writing out your do's and don't's for your clean eating plan—and please feel free to reach out to me to help you with this step. See below for a list of foods that your diet should mainly consist of and then make another list of completely off-limits foods.

Use these 4 steps as a guide to make clean eating a way of life. Click reply or call to get started on one of my fitness programs that will transform your body – once and for all.

Clean Food: The Basics

What food should you consider clean? I'll give you a hint: not foods that come packaged and processed.

The healthiest, cleanest foods are ones that are wholesome and untouched...as nature intended. Whole fruits, vegetables, greens, nuts, seeds, eggs, seafood and lean meats. Stick with this list of natural foods and you'll be eating very clean.

Steer clear of any food that has been manufactured, processed and packaged. These are most definitely not clean and will lead to pounds gained.
Turkey Pumpkin Stew

This comforting autumn soup is filled with creamy pumpkin and savory turkey, while keeping it low-carb and high protein. Doesn't get better than this! If you're making this after your big holiday meal, feel free to use shredded, roasted turkey instead of raw, ground turkey. Simply chop the shredded, roasted turkey and add in the last 10 minutes of the cooking time. Enjoy!
Servings: 12

Here's what you need...

1 Tablespoon coconut oil
1 small yellow onion, chopped
1 fennel bulb, chopped
1 small butternut squash, peeled, seeded and chopped
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, minced
1 lb ground turkey
1 (14oz) can diced tomatoes in sauce
1 (14oz) can pumpkin
4 cups chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup parsley, chopped

In a large soup pot, place the coconut oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes, until tender. Add the fennel, butternut squash and ginger. Cook for 5 minutes.
In a large skillet place the ground turkey over medium-high heat. Cook until browned, stirring often. Drain off liquid.
Add the turkey, tomatoes, pumpkin, broth, salt and pepper to the soup pot. Cover and cook over low heat for 40 minutes. Stir in the chopped parsley and cook, uncovered for another 10 minutes. Serve warm. Enjoy!

"SAYING NO TO FOOD PUSHERS"

7 Polite Ways to Turn Down Food

Most of us think that there are only two ways to handle Holiday food temptations.
You could say "No" to everything and get the reputation of being a Grinch.
Or you could say "Yes" to everything and end up gaining 5 or 10 pounds.

Let's explore the following 7 ways to politely turn down Holiday food that's pushed on you by well meaning friends and family.

Food Push #1: "This is your favorite! Hand me your plate."

Stalling Response: "I can't wait to try some in a little bit."

Why stalling works: By not directly turning the food pusher down, they feel that they've won and will drop the subject. Later you may decide that you want a small portion of the offered food, or you may decide to skip it.

Food Push #2: "Try this new dessert I made, you'll love it!"

I'm Stuffed Response: "I wish that I had saved some room, but I'm stuffed."

Why being stuffed works: No one can refute your statement about being full. If your food pusher is persistent then let them know that having one more bite would make you uncomfortably full to the point of pain.

Food Push #3: "I made this dish especially for you. Eat up!"

Diet Restriction Response: "Oh man, that looks good! Too bad I can't eat gluten."

Why having a diet restriction works: Even the pushiest people are likely to back off when they hear you have a diet restriction. The key is to be consistent. If you say that you aren't eating gluten then don't reach for a bread roll.

Food Push #4: The food pusher puts something on your plate without permission.

Spread It Around Response: Take your fork and spread the unwanted item around your plate to make it look like you took a few bites.

Why spreading it around works: You're not making a scene, and quite frankly, no one is going to notice. When food is put on your plate without your consent you are under no obligation to eat it. Spreading the food around is a simple way to defuse the situation without eating something you didn't want.

Food Push #5: "You are too concerned with dieting."

Thank You For Noticing Response: "Thank you for noticing the healthy changes I've been making. Your support means a lot."

Why saying thank you works: Sure, the dieting comment was probably made passive aggressively, but nothing is stopping you from taking it as a compliment. Seeing you make healthier choices may be intimidating for friends and family, so approach the subject with understanding rather than defensiveness.

Food Push #6: "Here's a bag of leftovers for you to take home!"

Take a Break from Cooking Response: "Thanks, but keep the food so that you can take a break from all the cooking you've been doing."

Why saying they'll get a break from cooking works: Every good host wants to send their guests home with something, but given the option they'd love to have leftovers for themselves as well. Compliment their cooking and let them know that you think they deserve a break over the next few days.

Food Push #7: "We only have this dish once a year – you HAVE to eat some!"

I Want to Live Long Response: "That looks amazing! I'm going to skip it this year so that I can live to see many more wonderful holidays with you."

Why wanting to live long works: Said with good humor, this drives home a serious point. You are watching what you eat so that you will be around for many more holidays to come to enjoy with your loved ones. No one can deny the importance of this!

By warding off food pushers you'll eat fewer calories and will avoid holiday weight gain to start the New Year off right!

Remember that exercise is a huge part of the equation when it comes to achieving weight loss.
