Importance of Exercise. Treat Your Body Like A Top Of The Range Sports Car

Do you think of your body the way you think of your car? When a few lucky individuals acquire a sports car that boasts of the best automotive engineering available today, watch them read the maintenance manuals religiously. They take their car for inspection even if it purrs like a kitten and take it for repairs as soon as something does not feelright. And they’re very concerned.

That car is their most prized possession, a symbol of all the long and hard hours they put on the job so they could finally acquire it. It cost an arm and a leg, so taking care of it is logically, their number 1 priority.

But how important is the person that drives that car? Shouldn’t that person – shouldn’t you – be the number 1 priority?

The average life span of men and women is 80 years, give or take a few years. The painful truth is, a significant number of men and women look and feel 80 before they even make it to the first half of their life! You spot the tell-tale signs from

their physical appearance:

sagging dry skin
unsightly posture
uneven and unsteady walk (they need to drag around those heavy pounds)
aching joints
sporting the “I’m not happy because I look terrible” look

Now, if their appearance is this bad, imagine what the inside machinery is like! Most likely, it’s even worse:

clogged vessels
inefficient heart
mounds of sugar and fat parked in or around vital organs
Conditions such as diabetes, nervous tension, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease that are silently brewing.

If fitness authorities had it their way, they’d create legislation to make exercise mandatory as soon as a baby leaves the cradle, not during the teenage years when obesity is likely to strike.

But fitness shouldn’t be associated with any age limit. You can start at 10 or at 30 – even at 50 and 60 – the idea being that fitness should not be seen as the cure for a condition that’s already come about. As the saying goes, don’t wait for illness to strike.

Brad King and Dr. Michael Schmidt in “Bio Age, Ten Steps to a Younger You” (Macmillan, Canada, 2001) have devised a questionnaire for assessing physical damage to a body as a result of no exercise. I will borrow some of their guidelines, which I will summarize here:

Start with the question, “How do I look?” Do any of these answers apply to you?

* Am I overweight, looking like an apple or pear?
* Do I have a spare tire around my waist?
* Has my skin become excessively dry, almost paper-thin?

Next, ask: “How do I feel?”

* Do my joints hurt before or after any physical exertion?
* Am I constantly worried and anxious?
* Do I feel tired and sluggish most of the time?
* Do I suffer from mood swings?

Last question, “How am I doing?”

Are simple walking and climbing stairs difficult?
* Do I have problems concentrating?
* Is running impossible for me now?
* Am I unable to sit straight, preferring to slouch or stoop my shoulders?

You’ve completed your basic assessment. Note, however, that other exercise or fitness gurus will have their own parameters or indices for assessing your body’s overall state and one isn’t better than the other.

As long as they include all dimensions of the self – physical, psychological and mental – they are as valid as the next person’s assessment charts.

After going through the assessment phase, you’re probably experiencing what some people fondly call a “rude awakening”.

If you’re not mentally prepared to accept exercise, please don’t force yourself. Just be familiar with its benefits and when you’re wholeheartedly disposed towards giving it a crack in the can, proceed slowly. “Slowly but surely” is the exercise cult’s favorite slogan.

It’s a quickie society we live in; we want everything quick – especially exercise! – and many converts would be willing to include it in their routine for the sake of health, if there were a quick way to get in, and certainly a quick to get out.

Sadly, to get lasting benefit from exercise we must expend time and energy. There is no way round this. But the benefits you will achieve in terms of improved health alone are well worth the effort!

Handy Tips About Grilling Like A Profecional Chef

Whatever your recipe is, you have to know how to cook a salmon. You have to grill it just right. Never rush in grilling it or else you will destroy it. That is why whenever you want to cook or grill a salmon; you will need a whole of patience to be able to do it just right. You want to make the most perfect salmon you can ever make every time right?

There are some grills with an incredible ability to maintain lower temperatures for extended periods. This is the best condition where you can slow cook your meat until it becomes perfectly tender and juicy. You’ll also want to own a grill that can cook fast without burning the food.

Here are a few tips to get the most out of your electric griddle.

Choose a healthy method for preparation. Appropriate cooking method always helps to preserve nutrients of the food. Grilling, broiling, steaming, and braising are good ways to do this.

Just little things that you would never think twice about could save you alot of time and effort. Try this, next time you are in a kitchen cooking, from the start to the finish, pay close attention to every little thing you do. After the meal is complete think of a few things that you could have done different, I’m sure that with a little advice you could have save at least ten minutes.

A few other tips to make your indirect heat grilled foods shine!

* Marinating – Because grilling is a dry heat that can have the tendency to dry out meats that are cooked for a long time, marinating your food before cooking is a great way to both add savory flavors as well as increase the juiciness. There are many recipes for delicious marinades for poultry, pork and beef and even many bottled marinades available in supermarkets. Another option similar to marinating is brining which really seals in and concentrates flavors.

* Basting – I strongly recommend basting your meat as it cooks over indirect heat. When the surface dries out, every 15 minutes or so during the cooking time, baste it generously with a basting brush. The basting mixture can be similar to the marinating mixture or alternatively it can introduce new flavors. For example, barbecue sauce is not good to marinate with, it will just burn on the meat if it cooks too long.

However, introduced later in the cooking process to baste the meat a few times before it is done creates a great, savory coating of flavor. Other great options for marinating include lemon juice, olive oil, and red wine vinegar, either together or alone.

Again, there are many recipes with recommendations for basting mixtures for your slow roasted grilled foods. For safety, if you baste with your marinade, remember that your marinade came in contact with your raw meat. Therefore, avoid adding this mixture in the last 15 to 20 minutes of cooking so you don’t introduce any uncooked meat to the surface of your roast! Its best to use a fresh basting mixture if possible.

Well that’s it! A quick and complete primer to indirect grilling. I think you will find that it brings your barbecue cooking to a whole new level, making your roasts more tender and juicier.

What Does a Healthy Body Look Like?

You probably know many people who have tried to lose weight, are currently dieting, or at least say that they would like to drop a few pounds … one of these statements might even describe you right now. If someone wants to lose weight, we don’t normally ask them why, we usually ask ‘how much’. But the question that most people don’t consider is why. Why do you want to lose weight? What do you think will happen when you get to your goal size? For some people it might be a recommendation by their doctor and a matter of serious health problems. Any body image and aesthetic improvement would be secondary to the immediate health improvements. But for most of the rest of us the health issues are not what drives us to want to lose weight. It is in fact the look of our body that we’re interested in changing and the health benefits are secondary to the look. At first glance this seems a bit superficial and even vain. But if you dig a little deeper you’ll see that the look of your body is probably your best indicator of your health as well. After all we really only have two ways of telling if something is wrong with our bodies: a) It feels wrong – something hurts or we feel ‘sick’ b) It looks wrong – a rash, bump, scratch, swelling, a joint or bone out of place, or too much fat! The point is that we only have these two pieces of information to go on to tell if there is something wrong with our bodies.

Once we’ve seen or felt that there is a problem we can go to a doctor and get even more information that is not possible to see or feel. For example a doctor can tell you that you’re at a high risk for a heart attack even though this is not readily apparent in a mirror (although being overweight is a good indicator) and you cannot feel how close you are to having a heart attack … you only feel it once you finally have the heart attack…at which point it is too late to do anything about it. The reason we have BMI charts and recommendations of a ‘healthy’ weight is so medical care providers can give you a visual cue that matches what their internal measurements like blood cholesterol and blood pressure are telling them about your relative risk of disease. In other words, there is a specific body shape and look that also predicts healthiness. Someone who is 100 pounds overweight almost assuredly has poor blood lipid profiles, high cholesterol, high blood pressure and many other problems associated with the extra weight and the high calorie intake required to get to that size. Conversely someone who is at or close to their ideal bodyweight for their height most likely has much more favorable blood measurements and risk profile of many lifestyle related disorders. In other words, they look healthy, and all measurements indicate that they are healthy. But there is a second level of health that cannot be measured, and that is emotional health and self image. For many of us this is linked to the look of our body. It makes sense that wanting to ‘look’ good or look like you’re in shape is actually no different than saying that you want to look healthy. I may be in the minority here, but I do not agree with the new found rhetoric of ‘being happy with your natural size’ (it’s ironic that this is only ever trumpeted by people who are overweight). This is a load of baloney and is just a sympathetic appeal to overweight people who cannot find the drive to eat less.

No matter how much you try to tell yourself you’re happy with your current size, you will always know you are lying to yourself and this is not good for both your physiological health or your emotional health. Living in denial isn’t any more healthy than living overweight. Doing both just compounds the problems caused by each. I think the most healthy way to approach weight loss is to admit to yourself that you want to lose weight for the purpose of improving the look of your body. And that this new thinner look will not only improve your physical health but also your emotional and psychological health. It is in fact a wholistic view of taking care of yourself. There isn’t much disputing the fact that a healthy looking body, is almost always a healthy body.

Eat What You Like And Lose Weight

It is about time that you can eat what you like to eat and still lose weight. In fact, you can even eat more and lose weight. It is just a matter of knowing what to do and how to do it.

Far too many diet regimes require that you eat their predetermined menu without the slightest consideration for your likes and dislikes. Worse yet, most of those require you to eat elf portions of the foods you to eat never eat in the first place.

After all, the celery diet just is not that attractive nor is the one featuring bees knees and mosquito knuckles. There are foods you like to eat and when you know how to put together menus that feature those foods, your weight loss efforts works much better.

I have had the good fortune of finding a fat reduction diet program that is built around an online menu generator that offers upwards of 40,000 meal combinations that are personalized around the foods you like to eat. That means it provides you with daily menus that make it EASY for you to lose weight. No more starvation.

No more gaging down foods you have never liked and would not eat under any circumstance. No more portions so small that they get lost on your dinner plate.

There is a way to eat more of the food you like, lose weight and live happily every after. Now there is a program that features a diet menu generator that provides you with a seemingly endless variety of meal choices, all based upon what you like to eat and what you choose to eat. Other diets most often fail because of undesirable or unsustainable menu selections. Not this one.

How much easier would it be for you to strip that unwanted fat by eating the foods you like? How effortless would menu preparation be if it were done for you in advance based upon the foods you decide have the most appeal to your appetite? What if you could eat more than you do now and lose weight in the process?

There is no doubt that it is factors like a diet menu generator that makes the task of fat elimination easier on a day to day basis and sustainable over decades.

Why fight the usual dieting battles that require unusual discipline to tolerate and as a result lead to results that do no last very long?

Just look around and you can see the failed results repeated again and again. After all, we know Oprah can take it off but clearly, she cannot keep it off. Stop wasting your time, money and health. Get off the fad and yo-yo dieting merry-go-round. Get serious about weight loss by getting into a program that protects your health, strips that fat, gets the results you seek and leads to permanent weight loss down a path that does not require endless will power and discipline.

Instead, it requires that you eat the foods you like, lose the weight you want and do it all by simply taking advantage of a revolutionary diet menu generator.
