Work Out Of The Week Are you on a diet?

Did you answer yes? Then can I ask you why?

You might tell me that is obvious I am overweight and need to lose the excess weight. Ah! But wait have you ever been on a diet before?

I can imagine many of you saying yes I have been on and off diets for so long I can’t remember when I wasn’t on a diet.

How many times have you started a diet with really good intentions, and even managed to lose a few or maybe quite a lot of pounds and then what happens next? You suddenly stop exercising or watching what you eat and suddenly those pounds you lost are back with the vengeance and more beside. How many times have you lost the same weight over and over again?

How many different types of diets have you tried? There are the popular ones but there are so many fad diets I have lost count as to what is now available. Maybe you are sitting there smiling thinking about the time you did the cabbage soup diet or the grapefruit diet or anything else like that.

You know these might be good for a short time but who wants to live on grapefruit or cabbage soup?

The truth is DIETS DON’T WORK. If diets worked and you had followed them time and time again you would be thin. Think how many pounds you have lost during the course of your life, for some of you when you add them all up it is more than you weigh at the moment.

Diets don’t work because in the main you can’t sustain them. You go on holiday and you eat whatever is available and the pounds go on and suddenly you are discouraged and quit. Or you have a bad day which means you end up eating chips, donuts and chocolate while watching a film and all the time your self esteem drops lower and lower, in fact if it went any lower it was hit the opposite side of the world.

What you need is to decide to learn to eat in a proper manner. To realize that garbage in is garbage out. If you want burgers, fries and coke daily you are going to get fatter. If you know that you want to eat these once in awhile then go ahead it won’t hurt you. Maybe you downsize the fries and coke. If you know you are going to an eat you like buffet, then don’t panic but think ahead. Eat smaller meals during the day, and then eat in the evening but not so much that you feel sick. Know your limitation and know when to stop.

It takes time and effort to know when to stop but it is possible to learn it.

There are so many rules around at the moment when it comes to dieting that so many people feel condemned when they think they have broken a rule.

If you know you can eat any food, any time you want, and all you need to do is control the amount you eat, then nothing is going to make you feel bad.

How many times have you said, “I failed with my diet today because I ate pizza and ice cream?” Imagine what it would be like if you were allowed those and then you would stop feeling like a failure.

You would find that many of the foods you are craving would no longer hold the attraction for you. When something is banned people want it. Put a wet paint sign by a bench in the park, and then watch how many people touch it to see if the bench is still wet. The more you stop yourself from eating a food the more you want it.

Make a decision today to stop dieting. That doesn’t mean you and not going to get healthy and lose weight, but you are no longer on a diet where there are so many forbidden foods. Nothing is disallowed. Who is the person who decided that certain foods were bad for you in the first place, maybe the person who wrote the diet? Look at some of the diets around and see one saying don’t eat meat another saying only eat meat, another saying no red foods another telling you to eat tomatoes. They are all in conflict, but if you want to lose weight, then the first important step is to stop being on a diet.

Learn about food, learn to love food, learn there is no such thing as good or bad food. The food isn’t bad it is you when you abuse it. Time to admit you are an abuser. Time to stop abusing food. The food did nothing to deserve it. When you buy food in the raw state there is nothing added to them to make them into bad foods, you do that when you cook them.

Make today the day when you decide to educate yourself and learn to love food, love yourself and love the fact that you are never having to go on another diet.

In work out of the week you’ll understand just why Breakfast is an Important Meal for Healthy Children

 Breakfast is an important meal for everybody, but especially for children. Their bodies work hard during the day, and if they have no fuel they will buy the nearest food to sustain them through those lessons. Children will encounter far less problems in school when they eat breakfast and research has shown that school results improve when a child has the right diet.

Too often breakfast is missed because so many other jobs need to be completed before the day starts. With organisation and rules you can see there is enough time to get everything done and breakfast eaten.

Some of the rules might not be popular with your children as you try to change the habits they have become used to. But you will need to talk with them and say this is an investment in their health.

Encourage them to finish their homework in the evening and get their school bags packed. That way you will know in the evening if anything is missing. Give them a few extra minutes on the computer or watching television once they have completed the tasks.

Get their clothes sorted the night before, check nothing is missing and that any activities which need special clothing are also available.

Plan on what you are giving the children for breakfast. It might be something simple like some cereal and a glass of fruit juice. Choose cereal which is not loaded with sugar. Have some fruit on hand which they could eat on the way to school or in the car. If you child likes yoghurt, instead of buying fruit yoghurt, buy natural yoghurt and add your own fresh fruit to it.

Most breakfasts take less than 5 minutes to prepare. It doesn’t have to be a complicated meal, just a healthy meal. Your children need to eat breakfast and if you have never eaten breakfast before you need to decide to start today. Remember that breakfast is an important meal if you want your children to grow up healthy.

In work out of the week you’ll understand just why Exercise will save you money

 People will use the excuse that they can’t afford to exercise. They don’t have any spare money to join those “expensive gyms”. If you want to join a gym it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money. You could decide to exercise in your home for the cost of a DVD. And If you purchased work out of the week you’d still get excellent results.

If you are serious about wanting to get healthy then you’ll find a way to pay for it. If you do choose to exercise then it will save you money.

You might be wondering how that could be, because we have been fed the lie that exercise is expensive. The cheap forms of exercise don’t get as much media coverage as the expensive forms of exercise.

If you look at your personal budget for a few moments, you need to see how much you are spending in two areas, food and medical care. How many medical problems like diabetes, cholesterol, high blood pressure, and heart disease do you have? How many has your Doctor told you are related to your weight? Your Doctor might have told you to lose weight and get fit.

If you talk to your Doctor they will be able to guide you into a fitness plan which will include both exercise and healthy eating. Many of the diseases people have can be improved and sometimes reversed when exercise and a good diet are taken to heart. People can find that their medical bills will be reduced purely by taking action and working out. As you stop buying unhealthy foods and eating out at fast food restaurants you will find that you have more money available at the end of the month.

Exercise will save you money; you will no longer be eating as much food which means your shopping bill will be reduced. You will no longer have as many medical problems which mean your medical bills will also be reduced. Now you know why exercise will save you money, then you have no excuses left as to why you can’t exercise.

 In work out of the week you’ll understand just why what you eat is what you are!

* “I will no longer eat for comfort.”

You might have failed in the past, but that doesn’t make you a failure. You can prove everyone wrong by not giving up and keeping to a healthy eating plan. You can prove to yourself and everyone else that you are a winner. Find a healthy eating plan and then ensure you stick with it.

How do we and others see us?

How many times have we weighed ourselves and who we are by our weight? Are we weighed down by weight? We often fail to see that we can be in bondage because of our weight.

If you look at the media today you will see that most focus on food and weight. Most magazines regardless of whether they are aimed at men, women or children have something to do with weight, health, fashion or food. Some will focus on all of them, and many will be teaching children to value themselves and others by the size they are and what they wear.

People who are in the public eye are even more focused on their weight. How many celebrities are underweight and continuing to get the perfect body and the perfect weight? Most people never reach these goals because the definition of what is perfect changes year by year and sometimes day by day. What was classed as the perfect shape and size in the 1930’s is now seem as being obese and unacceptable.

Look at the way eating disorders and on the increase and how young some children are becoming anorexic.

Being obsessed with food and diet is causing more and more people to be addicted to food, weight and how they look.

How many have made food an enemy today?

We should eat because we need food but how many hate the food they eat thinking that is the problem behind their weight gain?

Sorry, but it isn’t the foods fault. Food on its own is healthy. Have you ever gone into the garden (yard) and looked at fresh fruit and vegetables, do they have the power to make us fat? Take a nice piece of meat or fish again do they have the power to make us fat? NO! We take these foods and then mess around adding so many fats, sugars and other things that we have to take the blame firmly on our shoulders. We cook it or chose to buy it.

When was the last time a cookie spoke to you and told you in an audible voice to eat it? Food doesn’t do this, we do it ourselves. Food is not the enemy but what we have done to it has become the enemy.

Our weight controls our moods and our lives. It is an idol in our lives. It has taken first place in our lives.

How many hours a day do we spend being concerned about our weight and food? The cycle needs to be broken. We may be at the right weight but it can still be an idol. Some may have abused their bodies that their metabolism is shot to pieces, so what is happening to their bodies might still not be good and healthy.

Stop weighing yourself and others by what you see and start to learn to take responsibility for your eating problems on yourself.

In work out of the week we’ll show you how to choose an exercise plan.

 How to choose an exercise program

When you make the decision to start an exercise program you might have many question about what you should be doing. A good exercise program will be designed around you taking into account your weight and medical problems. You should ensure that whoever does the initial program with you is a qualified person.

Having a personal trainer will help you develop not only your exercise program but also your diet program.

Can’t afford one? No matter workout of the week still gives you all the information in bite size easy to understand pieces on hoe to do it yourself. but if you can..

They will be able to give you lots of good advice about what you should and shouldn’t be doing.

Always make sure that a personal trainer wants to discuss your health with you.

They need to know of any injuries that you might have which could be made worse when using certain equipment. They will also give you advice about the need to lose weight.

Normally a first appointment with the personal trainer can take a couple of hours. They will take a history of your medical background and current exercise programs, your goals. They should also take time showing every piece of equipment in the gym and how to use them correctly.

If they don’t take care on the first day then it is unlikely that they would be interested in the future. You plan should be to walk away and find someone else.

The most important thing to remember when choosing an exercise plan is if you decide to use a PT is picking one that’s shows care and knowledge and is concerned about your needs. This is your body and it will be the only one you have, so take care of it.

Get fit today! Why Diets alone do not work in the long term. Workout of the week is about holistic health.

Are you overweight, obese or morbidly obese? Many people who have a problem with their weight will go on a diet trying to lose the weight, but not give any consideration to getting fit. People try all types of diets without taking any form of exercise and wonder why they never lose any weight, or become healthy.

Today is the time to start to get fit.

Regardless of how heavy you might be there are always ways for you to exercise. You might not be able to walk a mile, but you can start to walk even if it is only a couple of paces. Anything is better than nothing. Talk to your doctor and tell them how serious you are about getting fit.

Your doctor will give you guidance as to what type of exercise is suitable for you. They will also give you some advice about the diet you should eat, but rather than get yourself caught up with more dieting, learn how to get fit. Make this the important decision you can make regarding your health.

If you make a pledge to start an exercise plan and stick with it for 12 weeks you will see improvement in your health. If you make some changes to your diet, this will also help your health.

In work out of the week the goal isn’t to be suddenly perfect weight, but to make lifelong changes to everything you do in terms of your health. If you look to do 4 hours exercise a week and try and eat when hungry, your cholesterol levels will drop. Your blood pressure will also improve. There will be noticeable differences in your health in this short a time.

Today is the day to make the changes. Start slowly and daily increase what you can do. Even if this week you can’t do 4 hours of exercise then do what you can, and increase until you can do the 4 hours in the week.  It is time to get fit today, because tomorrow never comes.

Work out of the week is about making Healthy Choices for Your Eating

There are times when you have to make a choice about what you eat. You will get to a stage in your dieting where you have to choose. Choose healthy food or fast food, what decision would you make and why would you make that decision.

It is a special occasion and you are being taken out for dinner. You’ve been told that tonight money is not a problem and you can choose anywhere you want to eat.

Normally you would choose to eat out at one of the fast food restaurants in the neighborhood, but there is a really nice restaurant opened just a few blocks away. People have been saying, how wonderful the food is there. You know that it is going to cost a lot of money, but the experience would be a dream coming true.

What would be your choice here, and more to the point what food would you chose once you got there?

Very few people would choose their local fast food restaurant for that special meal. They would want the candles; the wine; the soft lights and the music. People would want that intimate setting where they could talk quietly with their partner. They eat and savor the food they are eating. They taste every mouthful, and before they know it a couple of hours have passed.

People will normally choose that nice setting for a meal out, because they enjoy being treated as a special person. Yet everybody is special and deserves to be treated in a special way when it comes to food. You have now reached the point of making a decision between “fast food” and “non fast food” for your everyday eating.

You can make the choice of sitting at the table as a family and having that intimate dinner with everybody. You can have good food with conversation. Yes it might take some time if you don’t normally eat this way. But every member of your family is special and will enjoy being treated as a special person.

If you buy the food for your family then you are responsible for the food in the house. You have to stop waiting for the day to come when you have your diet sorted to start making healthy choices. Be radical turn off the television and tell the family that they are sitting down at the table for dinner tonight and every night. Add in a healthy food that the family don’t normally eat. Make changes slowly and see how the diet of the family will change.
