Curb Late Night Munchies with a Teeth Whitening

It's late evening, you've already ate dinner, maybe had a glass of wine, and while your watching your favorite TV show your mind starts to wander..your stomach joins in..there is something in the refrigerator with your name all over it!...COOKIES..or is is CAKES...or is it...CANDIES? Whatever bad food is trying to seduce you; it's a broken promise, a road to nowhere, don't do it! It will make you fat. Here's what you do:

Popeye and Spinach

Spinach is well known as the superfood that gave Popeye the Sailor Man his bulging muscles. "I am strong to the finish because I eat my spinach" was the famous cartoon character's tag line as he popped open a can whenever he needed to get out of trouble.

Dump the chair for an exercise ball

Sitting all day in a desk chair, no mattter how ergonomic or expensive it is, can cause long-term damage to your spine, deplete your energy, and even make you gain weight.  Why not lose weight, feel more energetic, and improve your balance simply by sitting on an Exercise Ball instead?
* Using an exercise ball (ie: Swiss Ball, Posture Ball) helps to improve your balance and forces proper spine alignment. This helps to improve your spinal health and decrease back pain. No matter how aware I am when sitting in an office chair, I always find myself slouching forward a bit at some point. This doesn't happen on a posture ball. Because the ball is unstable, it forces you sit up straight ...just like your Mom always told you to do! The unstableness of the ball also helps you to improve your balance.

Want to be Happy & Healthy - Try Music

Music therapy for promoting wellness has received increased attention over the last few years due to the rise in the practice of integrative medicine. Two types of music activities are used in music therapy for wellness...passive and active.

Passive music includes listening to music (any type that you like personally), vibroacoustic therapy, and meditation to music. It helps to increase the activity of helper T-cells and production of interleukin-I, both important indicators of immune system recovery. It stimulates activation of the cerebral cortex

Weight Loss Products #1 Fraud

Weight Loss Products are the No. 1 type of consumer fraud in the United States. According to a report by the Federal Trade Commission, about 5 million Americans fall for these type of scams each year, some of them buying more than one item. The products include dietary supplements, nonprescription drugs, skin patches, creams, wraps, and even earrings (yes, there are earrings that are supposed to suppress appetite). The marketers typically promise substantial, rapid, no-effort weight loss without dieting or exercise....guaranteed. Why doesn't somebody stop them you ask? Because there is no official governing body over nutrtition supplements and products. That's right, it's a free for all and anybody can claim anything they want on nutirtion supplements and pills, no matter how untested or far fetched it is as long as they put the word "may" before their claims. For example; "This product may help you lose 10 pounds in one week".

Does 3, 500 calories equal a pound?

It's been tossed around for years throughout the fitness industry, the notion that for every 3,500 calories you burn you'll lose a pound of fat. As a personal trainer, though, I often see people pushing through week after week of running, walking, lifting, whatever-workout designed specifically to reach that 3,500 calorie per week mark-only to weigh exactly the same when it's over. Argh, all that work and no results!

Lose Weight walking Backwards!

If you're stuck at your bodyweight or body fat percentage and want to break through to get better results try walking backwards on the treadmill.  Yes, that's right...BACKWARDS. Start off slow, around 1-2 mph at a 2-3 incline setting and don't hold on to the rails.

 

Food Craving

So, you have a sweet tooth? Maybe you love munching on salty foods? The various kinds of foods that we crave and think about could mean that we have some emotions and feelings that we need to harness, understand, and control.
