Getting Fitness Right

“Our food should be our medicine and our medicine should be our food.”
-- Hippocrates

America’s estimated 75 million dieters. Dieting has become an obsession. But despite the 60 billion diet industry North Americans are still over weight and obese. For this reason, one out of 2 people die of heart disease each year.

The body is a complex machine and, like any machine, it needs regular maintenance to keep it working efficiently. Aside from daily exercise, the body needs daily intake of fluid and food to provide it with energy, to keep it healthy, and to help repair and renew damaged cells. Three things we must understand to achieve fitness:

  1. Exercises such as crunches, leg raises, and sit-ups are the LEAST EFFECTIVE method of getting rid of stubborn stomach fat & love handles.

    Fitness starts with good nutrition, hydration, relaxation and exercising your core muscles from the inside out. These muscles lie deep within the torso. They generally attach to the spine, pelvis and muscles that support the scapula. When these muscles are in good shape, they stabilize the the spine, pelvis and shoulders and create a solid base of support. We are then able to generate powerful movements of the extremities.

  2. There are foods that are promoted as "Health Foods" but actually stimulate your body to hold onto excess belly fat.

    Scientists have even discovered that some of these particular foods can even produce a hormonal imbalance in your body that triggers belly fat to resist burning and signals it to be stored excessively. Avoid processed food with white sugar.

  3. Cardio exercises is not the best way to lose body fat.

Reducing your waistline and toning your core muscles is important for facilitating your balance and body movements. Recent properly controlled scientific studies have revealed that people using cardio-based workout routines lost significantly less body fat compared to people who did mostly low intensive training based circular routines.

IMPORTANT: Whatever your choice, weight training to build muscle, aerobic fitness for the lungs and heart or stretching exercises for flexibility, core training should the first priority of your fitness plan. It is important to remember that while exercising, you need to pay attention to your diet. Depending on the length of your workouts, your diet will affect the fuel used by your body. Your diet needs proteins, minerals, vitamins, carbohydrates and plenty of water.
