Why We Do What We Do

I love to tell people that my job is to maximize their whole health, with weight loss being one of the primary benefits. I know that sounds kind of cheesy, but I assure you, if you can follow some basic guidelines and do your research, then you will have success. For some it comes faster than it does for others, but either way you are doing more for your body than over half the population.

We do things raw, organic, and living, because our bodies are made for that–not the sterile, white, and lifeless food we have come to know. These raw, organic, whole foods are loaded with health benefits.

Exercise isn’t just for the young, exercise isn’t just for those trying to lose weight, and exercise certainly isn’t just for those who compete in athletics. Exercise is important for everyone as it provides synergistic benefits to the body.


Body Adiposity Index

March 19, 2011 | Fitness, Learning | 0 comments | Author:

A new obesity scale has been proposed to measure body fat called the Body Adiposity Index, or BAI. The BAI relies on height and hip measurements, and might give a more flexible counterpart to BMI (Body mass index) which is a ratio of height and weight.

BMI is calculated by dividing weight in kilograms by height in meters squared. There can be some inaccuracies though with BMI since men and women with the same BMI can have varying levels of extra fat. Initial testing shows that using BAI instead has more accurate results across gender and different racial groups.

In discussing De Lorme, who helped to develop a complete modern training program for clinical application, the Physiology Of Strength, says this about his review of empirical studies:

Exercise Without Moving A Muscle

We have some highlights for you today from “How To Exercise Without Moving A Muscle -Isometrics For Everyone” by Victor Obeck.

“The word isometric comes from the Greek iso, meaning ‘the same’, and metric, meaning ‘length’. Isometric contraction refers, therefore, to the tightening of a muscle without changing its length.”

Exercise’s Role In Keeping You Young

We all know that aging is inevitable and even a good thing. We don’t want to keep people from aging, but we definitely want to help people age well and avoid some of the physical problems associated with aging. Enter: exercise.

Dr. Mark Tarnopolsky, professor of pediatrics at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, was surprised to find that exercise kept a strain of mice from becoming gray prematurely. New research published showed that exercise reduced or removed almost every detrimental effect of aging in mice that had been genetically programmed to grow old at an accelerated pace.
