It’s that time of year again, the time that brings us so much cheer, yet so much stress. It’s not merely the inevitable stress that comes with most family gatherings and parties, but also the stress these events put on our bodies. What do these gatherings have in common? They all focus on food (and most times, too much food). I, like most human beings, have little will power when it comes to the constant temptation of delicious eats. So whether you’re the guest or the host at the next holiday party, test out these tips for eating mindfully and leave the weight gaining to Santa!
Most of us celebrate Thanksgiving. Well, I know I do.
You know the story. The Pilgrims came over on the Mayflower and then they made a meal with the Native Americans. Someone brought a turkey. Someone else brought some corn. Then someone brought some sweet potatoes, right? It was a great healthy meal that symbolized how thankful we are for everything we have.
What I want to know is... who is the jerk who started bringing pies and cakes?
Ahhhh, Halloween is here!! You know what that means. Kids dressed as princesses and pirates. Guys dressed as Bill Clinton and the Captain Morgan Man. Women dressed as a "naughty (fill in the blank)".
But for most of us, Halloween is about candy. Where we either go trick or treating, sneak some from our kids, buy tons of candy and then have one person come over only to have so much left for us. It's when “fun size” chocolate turns into “king size” after eating all of it.
As you may or may not know, I love working out. This is from someone who has spent most of his life in the “morbidly obese” category. About four years back when I was able to be more active, I made a promise never to stop. I have not and I love the gym more and more each day.
An increasing number of Americans are overweight and obese, yet strategies for losing weight don’t seem to be working. This is because most people are learning how to lose weight from personal trainers, TV doctors, and celebrity chefs. Most of these “so-called experts,” are not familiar with the scientific nutritional literature and simply render their own opinions. It is hard to lose weight, but it best achieved with strategies, which have been clinically tested. Below are three recent fact-based tips to help you lose weight.
I bet just about everyone is worried about gaining weight after over-eating at their big holiday meal. Jamie Oliver would consider over-eating a no-no! Here is a simple way to avoid that without changing one recipe or skipping dessert. Yes, it is possible.
It almost feels like yesterday. You were sitting in the kitchen staring at the peas on your plate, hoping and wishing that you could get up and go play. But no, instead your mom or dad said what most parents in America (maybe even other countries) say, “There are starving children in Africa. Finish your food.”
It is no secret that most people fall off the wagon of healthy eating habits and regular exercise routines during the holiday. It’s no wonder! There are more parties now than any other time of year. Seems everyone wants to raise a glass to the joy of season and to the possibilities that lie in the new year.
Hello Anytime Fitness nation! As we prepare to begin a week of overeating and football-watching, I wanted to wish all of you a very happy Thanksgiving. Think of Thursday as one of those gifts that you can reward yourself with for all of that hard work in the gym this year. Just be careful to guard against one day’s indulgence becoming an excuse to take the week off from the gym. Trust me, I have been there before.
