The Power of Dumbbells

The Power of Dumbbells and Free Weights The power of dumbbells.  They do make a difference.  I believe that using dumbbells has helped to reduce arm flab and back rolls drastically.   Free Weights VS Machine exercise Range of Motion Something to keep in mind and never forget is that when you exercise, you are training for life. You can spend an hour a day in the gym, that will still leave another 23 hours or so for your muscles to function without using any fancy equipment. When you do any type of exercise, the movement of your body during the exercise is known as the range of motion. The more difficult the range of motion is, the more effective the exercise will be.  The is because your body has to work twice as hard to perform the movement.     The Classic Dumbbell Bicep Curl The classic dumbbell bicep curl is performed by standing up (more…)

Food Verses Workout

Food Verses Workout A moment on the lips really does equal a month on the hips.  This was the most significant weight loss discovery that helped lead to permanent weight loss. Weight loss requires a complete internal mindset change, it becomes vital to remain consciously aware of what is actually eaten each day, The Paleo Diet forces individuals to be personally accountable for foods and meals that are prepared.  Prepackaged foods are NOT allowed and all meals must be prepared from scratch.  Diets are limited to only fresh natural ingredients and there is no dairy allowed.

Weight Loss Plateau

The Weight Loss Plateau Understanding the weight loss plateau: The average human is capable of achieving a number of incredible feats that seem to defy the way science tells us things should work. Athletes can end up lifting something that their bodies should not be able to out of sheer willpower.   People can adapt to extreme physical trauma caused by a car accident and defy predictions that they’ll never walk again. While these amazing feats are useful in a number of situations, there are physical reactions that some people look upon with quite a bit of disfavor. Among these physical reactions is something known as a “weight loss plateau.” The “plateau” is a term used to describe a situation where the body has become incapable of losing any further weight.  This is usually due to developing a tolerance for the weight loss methods being used. Essentially, the plateau is hit (more…)

Acai Berry

Acai Berry The acai berry is a relatively new discovery to most parts of the world, including USA, but this berry has been in use for centuries. The Acai berry is usually only grown in the Brazilian rain forest region. However; there have been acai berry palms found as far as Maui, Hawaii. There are often difficulties in preserving and transporting the berry to different parts of the world due to limited shelf life.  There currently a huge worldwide demand for the Acai Berry. Acai berries are known to be the highest natural source of antioxidants present in nature.  The Acai even contains more antioxidants than red wine.  Red wine is considered the number one food for fighting against free radicals. Free radicals can cause severe damage to the human body. Acai berries eliminate free radicals and improve the body as a whole. Acai berries are great for various aspects (more…)

She is now 160 pounds.   I am still 200.  So what happened?   I work out almost everyday and I am proud of my progress, plus I originally started out at 500 pounds, so it puts me into a different category altogether… but still, her weight loss was astounding.

Sweet Potato Chips

Sweet Potato Chips Baked-Sweet-Potato-Chips In my opinion, there is nothing more delicious than sweet potato chips.  The amazing thing about Sweet Potato Chips is that there are so many ways to make them.  So I have scoured the land seeking out only the best and most delicious recipes… I want you to notice that the temperatures vary from recipe to recipe.  I believe that the most traditional “chip” is when they are cooked at 250 degrees.  However; the higher temperatures provide a different kind of chip. Not necessarily as crispy as the traditional method however.  This is very important if you are going for a more common potato chip feel.  It is easy to end up with soggy chips if you do not choose your methods wisely.   Traditional Sweet Potato Chips Recipe: Preheat oven to 250 degrees F (121 C) and position oven rack in the center of the (more…)

Kale Ginger Cilantro Salad

Kale Ginger and Cilantro Salad Kale Ginger and Cilantro Salad with Bacon This is my secret Fat Burning salad.

It makes a very spicy yet delicious blend. For some reason the Ginger and onion mixed with the apple cider vinegar (optional) seems to create a natural fat burning combination.   It helps that the combination of foods are delicious together. I just want to mention for the record for those of you who are not accustomed to cilantro that I believe it is one of the most delicious herbs available.  It looks a little like parsley at first… small green leafs on stemmed plants.  It is yummy. I have heard some complain that they get a bitter taste (more…)
