Holiday Eating

Be careful over the holidays. Make sure you eat small servings and do not go back for seconds. The white meat on the turkey is low in calories. Eat a potato instead of mashed potatoes. Make sure the cranberries have no sugar. Skip the stuffing and eat a very small piece of pumpkin pie. Have a wonderful Holiday.

Burn Calories While on Vacation Without Even Trying

If you are at the beach and want to burn some calories, you can walk or run on the beach, swim in the ocean, and march in place in the water. If there is a pool at your place then you can walk , run, swim or march in the pool and do not forget to move your arms, which will burn more calories.

How To Eat Healthy at an All Inclusive Resort

Visit the salad bar in the resort restaurant's buffet line before going to the other buffet areas. Use a vinaigrette dressing instead of a cream-based dressing and get it on the side.

Go for fresh fruit as your dessert.

Choose a traditionally lean meat like fish or poultry instead of fattier meats like pork and beef. Pay attention to how the dish is prepared, avoiding dishes that are smothered in creams or gravies.

Drink water instead of soda or juice.

Choose your alcoholic beverages carefully. Avoid drinks that have alot of sugar like pina coladas.

Opt for a plated dining option instead of the buffet line. Many resorts have standard restaurants where you order a single entree instead of being tempted with the buffet's seemingly unlimited choices.

Why do we sweat?

  •  We sweat   because  humidity gets to us and we get hot. What happens when we get hot? We sweat. The reason why is because it cools us off.
  • Sweat evapoarates in the air. This requires energy input, which it receives from your body. It helps your body cool down.
  • Everybody sweats. If we didn't sweat we would suffer from sun stroke or heat exhaustion. We sweat through glands that are located under our armpits, on our head, between our legs and on our feet.
  • FACTS:
    Did you know that we sweat all the time even on cold days!
    Did you know that there are about 2 million sweat pores on our body!
    Did you know that sweat is odourless. The smell is the sweat decomposing.

Nutrition at Restaurants

Before you go to a restaurant you can look up the calories, fat, protein and carbohydrates. Some restaurants do not have the nutrition online, but most of the chain restaurants do. You will be surprised that alot of the food you eat at a restaurant is not as healthy as you think.

8 Glasses of Water a Day

There has been new studies about the wise old age of drinking 8 glasses of water a day. They now believe you can consume some of those 8 glasses of water a day by eating foods that contain water. Examples are watermelon, cucumbers, lettuce, broccoli, cantaloupe and other fruits and vegetables.

Time to Exercise

Don't just think about exercise and say to yourself I will start tomorrow. Start today and make sure you pick a time that works for you. Some people prefer mornings, some prefer evenings. I like to do it in the morning between clients or early afternoon. I feel awful if I miss a day, so unless I am sick I never miss a day of exercise. Eventually it will become apart of your life.

As I mentioned in my last blog, you do not need alot of equipment to workout. Let me explain how to do a few of the exercises
Lat Pulldown - put the band at the top of the door and shut it(make sure you have it even on each side), stand or sit on the group or chair and with an overhand grip pull the band to your shoulders and then let the band go back up.
Bicep Curls - Stand on the band in the middle, same distance on each side. Place you arms at your side and bring the band up to your shoulders, lower and repeat.
Side Step outer thighs -Step in the middle of the band, same distance on each side. Go sideways on the band, count for 20(bring leg foot to right foot and so on) and go back the other way.

Do Diets Works?

I have been asked do diets work? In my opinion diets do not work. It is very hard to stay on a diet the rest of your life. If you need to lose weight and you have a hard time with portion control, I do recommend Weight Watchers. I have had clients who were on the Atkins diet. The problem was they lost the weight, but as soon as they went off the diet they gained their weight back. The key to losing weight and keeping it off is changing the way you eat and making it a life decision. This means watching your portions and eat healthy protein and carbohydrates. If you need more information, or help on losing weight and keeping it off email me at and I will answer all your questions. Also visit my website at

Weight Training

When you start a weight training program and continue it for 3 months then stop and don't do anything, you will lose  muscle definition. If you start back up 6 months later, the muscle remembers and it will not take as long to build it back up. Incorporate weight training into your workout routine, as well as continue doing cardiovascular exercise 3 to 4 times a week.
