Guest Post – Top 4 More Weight Loss Myths Debunked

Hey NeverEver’s!

First I am sorry this is a day late. It was a horrible day for me yesterday, while not an excuse it is just the truth. However, I really had to share this Guest Post. Why? Because we have all been there. Yo-Yo’ing on our weight or googling ‘Fast Way to Lose Weight’ even though we know better. So here is some of these weight loss myths taken away!

Top 4 More Weight Loss Myths Debunked


You’d think that by now the whole subject of weight loss would have been blown wide open with all the various studies and research carried out over the decades, but you’d be wrong. Even in 2013 there are still more myths and misunderstandings about weight loss than there are comprehensively understood facts, which leads to the perpetuation of myths which only stand to hamper the efforts of those with the best intentions.


So once again as a means by which to address some of the more common examples that for one reason or another just won’t quit, here’s a look at a few more weight loss myths and the actual truth behind them.


Eating at Night is Bad for you


One of the longest-standing weight loss myths of all, there are still millions who for one reason or another are convinced that every last crumb they put in their mouths before bed will turn into fat. Nonsense – like the rest of the day it’s all about what you eat before you go to bed as opposed to whether or not you eat at all. Go to bed starving hungry and your body won’t respond well at all during the night, but eat something easy to digest and low in sugar to keep your whole system moving as it should and encourage restful sleep.


Rapid Weight Loss Is Impossible


This is a bit of a tricky one as rapid weight loss is indeed 100% possible, but the trick is knowing how to lose it healthily and in a way that sticks. Crash diets prove that the body can lose weight like lightning, but they’re so dangerous for your health and always lead to the dreaded yo-yo effect. Healthy weight loss over a short period of time therefore is not about starving the body, but instead giving it exactly what it needs combined with serious efforts to improve and increase exercise and training. Lose weight this way and you can rest assured it won’t be coming back to bite.


Carbs Make you Fat


Somewhere along the course of the past few years, carbs developed a reputation for being the single biggest enemy of dieters all over the world. As of right now, there are millions going about their business under the impression that carbs make you fat and should be avoided at all costs – some going so far as to cut them out of their diets entirely. In reality however, carbs will only ever make you fat if you binge on them without taking into account their calorie content. Eaten in sensible quantities, carbs provide efficient slow-release energy that can keep you feeling fuller for longer and thus naturally reduce the amount you eat.


The Fewer Calories, The Better


And finally, it might seem like a good idea to cut your diet from 2,000 calories a day to 1,000 from the word go, but it isn’t. If you don’t take in enough calories then your body will think it’s going to starve to death and make sure every calorie you do consume gets stored safely away as fat reserves. It’s hard to believe, but there are so many people across the UK that could lose weight if only they’d eat more!

Guest Post – Easy Tips To Help Anyone With Kidney Disease Remain Super Positive

Hey NeverEver’s!

Welcome to Tuesday! I have to be honest with you all today the weekend can’t come fast enough…or at least 4 pm so I can go home and take a nap. I have been feeling exhausted but I know that is just my cold leaving my body.

However, today is the day for Guest Posts and it is all about the Kidney! Now that little organ in our body is something I never really thought about too much before until about 3 years ago I got a Kidney Infection. And then suddenly everything I thought about was the Kidney. So when I was approached to have a Guest Post about Kidney Disease and how to be positive throughout it I jumped at it. Because, maybe if there was something like this before I got my infection it wouldn’t have been so hard.

So without further ado I present the Guest Post —

You've just been diagnosed with kidney disease and the news has just totally flipped your life upside down. You’re sitting there and you really don’t know what to do. What’s going to happen and will your life ever be the same again? 

Once the initial shock is over, you start to have a lot of talks with various different kidney disease specialists but no matter what advice they give you… deep down you just feel like nobody understands what you’re going through. You just want this whole mess to disappear and for your old life to come back to you.

In official terms an individual that goes through illness will actually experience 4 different phases which include denial, anger, depression and acceptance. These phases together are known as the Kubler Ross cycle.

But if you want to overcome kidney disease and move into good health you need to go from the denial phase to having an extremely positive outlook for your future. This will not only make it easier both mentally and emotionally but it will actually help you get into good health a lot faster too.

There are various research studies out there such as the work done by Dr Candace Pert which shows that the mind has an extremely powerful affect on the body.

This is why it’s so important that you make sure that you remain in a positive frame of mind at all times. Whether it be good times or bad times you have to stay positive at all times.

You also want to avoid being one of those people that keeps bouncing about from being happy one moment and sad the next. This will surely just leave you physically and emotionally distressed. Instead of this why not just follow the tips below to remain in a positive mental state at all times!


  • Work To Get Rid of All The Negative Labels You Have On Yourself!


The truth is that whenever anything goes wrong in people’s lives the first thing they usually do is start to mentally torture themselves over and over again.

Instead of just accepting the failure as part of life and moving on they keep thinking about it and keep telling themselves that it was because of them that everything seems to fail. But calling yourself a failure is not going to do anything but result in you getting sad and depressed. Stop doing this to yourself… focus on the positive and on moving towards good health.

  • Your Current Problems Are Your Greatest Assets


Take 5 minutes of your time and study the most successful people on this planet and you’ll realise that they all have one thing in common. That is that they all went through periods of extreme hardship and instead of letting the situation get them down they used it as motivation to move forward and get amazing results.

Your current situation with kidney disease is no different. You have the opportunity to actually move forward, overcome kidney disease and get into the best health of your life. Not only that but you actually have the chance to make some amazing discoveries about yourself.

I’ve found that every single person out there is different and so depending on who you are, you’ll make unique discoveries about yourself. I’ve known people who as a result of their experience with illness have gone on to really start paying attention to their loved ones… others have actually gone on to start appreciating their own lives on a whole new level!

So what discoveries are you going to end up making about yourself? Well, only you can really answer that! But keep in mind that this disease is merely a blessing in disguise!


  • Begin To View Every Problem As a Challenge You’ll Solve Step by Step


You see if you analyse the Great Pyramids of Giza then you’ll notice that it was the result of putting one brick on top of another, again and again until the whole pyramid was done.

There was no shortcut, and it wasn’t done overnight. But if you take a look at people today then it’s really sad to see that most people end up giving up well before they even get started because they feel that the journey ahead of them is just going to be too hard or just impossible.

But I want to tell you right now that nothing on this planet is hard as long as you’re prepared to put in the work and stay committed to getting the job done. Not even kidney disease will be able to stay around if you’re persistent and never give up!

But you must remember that the only way to achieve anything is to take it one step at a time until you have gotten to where you want to be.


  • Start To Really Appreciate All The Good Things in Your Life


You seriously need to develop a sense of gratitude because doing so will help you to constantly focus on the good things in your life rather than all the things that aren’t going so well.

To make this a regular part of your life, I’d recommend that you start each day by writing a list of all the things that you are seriously grateful for.

Whatever it is that you feel really grateful for, just write it down. Keep repeating this habit every single day and you’ll get to a point where you’re going to feel great all the time. Being at this point is really amazing because it’ll help you focus completely on the things you need to do in order to get into amazing health in record time… instead of just focusing on all the negative elements and end up getting nowhere.

So there you go folks, all the tips you need to implement to get into a really positive frame of mind. Remember it’s only when you’re in a positive state that you’ll be able to make all the best choices in regards to your health! So get out there and make sure that you are implementing the advice I’ve shared here.

Guest Post – The Body is Powerful

Hey NeverEver’s!
Welcome to Tuesday. And what a great Tuesday it is. We are starting a new month and its a Guest Post day! It really can’t get any better then that if you ask me. I am really excited for this post. Not only is it because its all about freeing yourself to feel the best but because lets face it, October is all about Halloween. Even if we don’t want it to be…its all about it. So its time to feel comfortable in YOUR own skin!

*****


My obsession with burlesque is a surprise to people who knew me growing up. Strait-laced, good girl. (But aren’t those always the ones with a deep longing for sensuality?) When I discovered burlesque, and vintage, Fosse jazz, I was in love. The lines of the body created innuendos. The quality of movement was that of “anticipation”. The smallest flick of a heel or roll of a shoulder upped the ante. It’s all about subtlety. And, here were women showing off their bodies- all shapes, sizes and experiences. Not hiding from who they really are.


Part of what I love about burlesque is the sheer variety of body types! No boobs, but long legs (me)? Yup. Voluptuous curves all over? Yup. Tall? Short? Black? White? Old? Young? Check. Burlesque is a celebration of body, in all its varieties.


The way we use our bodies to express our sensuality very often has very little to do with our own sexy self, and much more to do with what we think those around us expect it to be. We dress for others- to be noticed, to please, to seduce, or even to repel. We act for others- strait-laced good girl, free-loving hippie, frigid ice maiden. We lose weight, or gain weight, or tighten and tone for the admiration of others, instead of for the benefits (physical and emotional) we will experience in ourselves!


Our bodies are the only thing we possess that are truly OURS (and what they house- our voices, minds, souls). We have a responsibility to honor that uniqueness. To be our own sexy selves, for ourselves. Because it’s who we are. Not because it’s what our partner wants, or what we think the guys at the bar are looking for, or because it worked for our best friend.


My sexy self is for me. It is part of me. No, she is me. I feel good when I honor that. When I dress and act in a way that feels sexy to me. I’m more confident, I’m more present. If we are constantly making our sexy self about others, we will spend the entire time focused on what those others are thinking of us. Never a healthy place to be.


I’ve only recently become comfortable with this concept of having a sexy self, and that she needs to be expressed. Being in dance and theater, the body is so objectified and judged, and I had so many issues. But I was taking on what other people said and thought. Or even what I THOUGHT other people were saying and thinking. I wasn’t being present in my body. I wasn’t listening to myself. I was letting other people determine my self-worth and self-assessment. Giving others that much power over me was not a healthy choice.


My challenge to you- honor your sexy self. There will be days you don’t feel sexy, don’t want to be sexy, and that’s OK. And remember, our sexy selves don’t need to wait for when we go out to come out! Maybe you can’t wear a minidress to work, but there is a way you can express your sexy self there. Impractical shoes? Manicured nails? Smiling more? Saying what you mean and meaning what you say? But, the next time you find yourself worrying about what other people will think of your body, your clothing choices, your opinions, refuse to give them that much power in your life. Those things are part of you. And you are beautiful, powerful, and yes, sexy.

Guest Post – Run. Influence. Change the world with Run 10 Feed 10.

Hey NeverEver’s,

Its Tuesday! One day closer to the weekend of course ^_^. But today is also Guest Post day. And with this one…well this one is something we can all do. The Run 10 Feed 10 is an amazing run that help give 10 meals to people that are in need.

It doesn’t matter how fast you go or if you have ever run a 10k before (you all know I haven’t) but we can all do it! Or we can help with the fundraising.

Read on!

Run. Influence. Change the world with Run 10 Feed 10.

Think about the last time you said, “I’m starving.” Were you (really)? Think about what it feels like to be
hungry. Think about what it feels like to run. Hungry=negative, painful empty tummy. Running=positive,
energized body. Do you do both? I don’t, but I have that choice. I also have the choice to counter the
negative (hunger) with the positive (running) by participating in Run 10 Feed 10.

What’s all the hype about? Millions (like 50 million) people or more are hungry. 17 million of those
people are children. Children! In the US, 1 in 6 American children are wondering when they will get their
next meal. Think about six kids who you know; yup, one of them might be the victim of hunger, which
may impact their growth, strength and ability to learn. NO! These children are our future. These children
may care for us when we’re old. So stand up, lace up those sneakers and help our future Americans
while we still have the power to take action! Help them get fed. Help them not worry about food.

Yes, you! That’s right join the Run 10 Feed 10 initiative with Women’s Health and the FEED Foundation
(www.thefeedfoundation.org) to fight domestic hunger. I know, you’re asking what that even means.
Well, it’s as simple as lacing up your sneakers. By running a 10k at one of the seven events throughout
the United States (or you can even sign up to run your own), you provide meals to ten people in your
community. Hunger is a global problem, but a solvable one.

Run 10 Feed 10 PSA 2013

Want to know more about the FEED Foundation? The FEED foundation is an organization started by
Lauren Bush Lauren, grand-daughter of former President George W. Bush and wife of David Lauren.  The
FEED foundation is dedicated to the mission of providing meals for people throughout the globe. Even
in America, there is a hunger problem. 1 in 5 children do not know where their next meal is coming
from.   As of 2011, the FEED foundation has provided 60 million free meals to children around the globe
through their FEED Projects which includes partnerships with companies like Target, Disney, DKNY, and
more.  Women’s Health is super proud to work with an organization like FEED.  The money you raise
goes directly to a local charity in your hometown filtered through the foundation.

I, Women’s Health and the FEED Foundation need your help. It’s as simple as registering online.

#Run10Feed10

Facts:

Register at www.run10feed10.com
Races and fun runs will occur in September and October of 2013 throughout the U.S.
The flagship event in NYC is this Saturday, September 22
Runs are open to women and men, 18+.

Not a runner? No problem, we got you. Participate today by donating to the cause.
Women’s Health and their Action Heroes goal is to raise one million meals for people across the U.S.
Sounds like a hefty challenge, but we succeeded last year and hope to do so again. We’re currently at
731,080 meals! According to the FEED Foundation website, $15 will provide $100 meals and $45 will
feed a family of Four for an entire month. Awesome! Can you help? How about putting those weekly
coffees on hold, skip happy hour one night or that 3pm craving and donate to a Women’s Health Action
hero here:

Strong is the New Skinny – Guest Post

Hey NeverEver’s!

Welcome to Tuesday! Yay we are one day closer to that lovely 3 day weekend, hoozah! However, before we can get to that glorious long weekend we have to get through with Tuesday and I have a way to help us get through that.

Its called a Guest Post! Yay! This one is by another Alicia (yup even spelled the same way) so you know it is going to be awesome!


Strong is the New Skinny (And That’s a Good Thing)


For a long time, most people just wanted to lose weight and be skinny. That desire was mainly due to the media’s portrayal of “beauty.” However, over the last few years, more attention has been brought to the fact that this perception of beauty isn’t truly universal. Additionally, more people than ever are realizing that many portrayals of skinniness aren’t realistic, sustainable or healthy.


It’s Time to Ditch “Skinny” and Focus on Strong


Even though most fitness “trends” are fads focused on shortcuts, embracing strength training is a very positive trend that needs to continue. A big reason why this is such a positive direction for fitness and our culture as a whole is increasing strength isn’t just about looks. While strength training will play a key role in adding tone and definition to your body, that’s just one of the many benefits that it provides.


The positive challenges that strength training creates lead to even greater mental strength. A study done at the University of British Columbia found that with just three resistance exercise sessions a week, participants experienced a 13% improvement in mental dexterity and stamina. Although this specific study was performed on older adults, it’s not difficult to see how strength training can improve mental toughness at any age.


In fact, because non-senior citizens aren’t battling with the standard decline that goes along with advanced age, it’s likely that a study done on young to middle-aged adults would find an even more significant improvement.


This type of training also increases self-esteem and confidence. This is because as you set goals and then reach them, it drives home the fact that you can do anything you set your mind to accomplishing. This effect is one of the reasons that many alcohol recovery centers make physical activity and exercise part of their recovery process.


Not only is working up a sweat good for the body, but because it has positive mental effects as well, it’s also ideal for someone who’s working on a daily basis to overcome a substance abuse problem or any addiction problem for that matter!


It’s Never Too Late to Get Started


Once people learn about all the benefits of strength training, there’s still one obstacle that holds many back. A lot of people think that because they don’t have the necessary athletic background, or because it’s been a long time since they’ve touched any weights, they’re not going to be able to get in the swing of things.


The good news is that’s not true at all. Regardless of your age or background, it’s never too late to begin strength training and start reaping all of the benefits it has to offer. Get yourself motivated by getting a work out buddy or put together a workout inspiration board on Pinterest. If you don’t know what kind of workout to do, pick up an active sport instead or join a workout class at your local gym.

Heart Healthy Diet Choices – Guest Post

Hey NeverEver’s!

Welcome to Wednesday! Its Hump Day and I got my coffee, my computer and work…what more could I ask for? Oh and my shakeology but I already drank that. However, I do have a awesome guest post today. It is from HealthLine. I think of their page like WebMD just more friendly and less death notices. Anyways, they are going to be talking about the Heart so make sure to read up! The heart is an extremely important part of your body ^_^.

Heart Healthy Diet Choices

While many factors affect heart disease, the FDA recommends eating foods that are high in fiber and low in fat, sodium and cholesterol to reduce the risk of this disease. Although you might know that eating the right foods can decrease your heart disease risk, it’s often tough to change your eating habits. Whether you’ve been eating bad for years, or you simply want to fine-tune your diet, here are some heart-healthy diet tips. Once you know which foods to eat more or less of, you’ll be on your way toward a heart-healthy diet plan.
Eat Fruits and Vegetables, Avoid Fats
Vegetables and fruits are great sources of vitamins,dietary fiber and minerals. They contain substances found in plants that may help prevent cardiovascular disease, as well as temper those high-fat cravings. Fruits and vegetables don’t have any fat in them.  Limiting how much saturated and trans fats you eat is an important step to reduce your blood cholesterol and lower your risk of coronary artery disease. A high blood cholesterol level can lead to a buildup of plaques in your arteries, called atherosclerosis, which can increase your risk of heart attack and stroke.  Make sure you choose dishes that have vegetables or fruits as the main ingredient, such as salads and stir-fry. 
When you do use fats, choose monounsaturated fats, such as canola or olive oils. Polyunsaturated fats, found in nuts and seeds, also are good choices for a heart-healthy diet. When used in place of saturated fat, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats may help lower your total blood cholesterol. But moderation is essential. All types of fat are high in calories.
Protein and Sodium
Eating a lot of sodium can contribute to high blood pressure, a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Reducing salt in the diet is a good heart-healthy choice. Healthy adults should have no more than 2,300 milligrams (mg) of sodium a day, which is about a teaspoon. Those 51 or older, African-Americans, and people who have been diagnosed with high blood pressure, diabetes or chronic kidney disease should have no more than 1,500 mg of sodium a day.  Be wary of foods that claim to be lower in sodium because they are seasoned with sea salt instead of regular table salt. Sea salt has the same nutritional value as regular salt.
While you lower your sodium intake, beef up your protein intake.  Eggs, lean meat, low-fat dairy, poultry and fish are some of your best sources of protein. Certain types of fish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids as well, which can lower blood fats called triglycerides. You’ll find the highest amounts of omega-3 fatty acids in cold-water fish, such as herring, mackerel and salmon, as well as walnuts, flaxseed and soybeans.
Whole Grains
Whole grains are fantastic sources of fiber and other nutrients that regulate blood pressure and heart health. Avoid refined grain products such as processed foods.  Rather, try some barley or quinoa in your diet. Another easy way to add whole grains to your diet is ground flaxseed. Flaxseeds are small brown seeds that are high in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, which can lower your total blood cholesterol.
Eat Smaller, Plan Ahead and Occasionally Treat Yourself
Quantity is just as important as what you eat. Eating until you pop can lead to eating more calories, fat and cholesterol than you should. Portions served in restaurants are often more than anyone needs. Keep track of the number of servings you eat. Eating more of low-calorie, nutrient-rich foods, such as fruits and vegetables, and less of high-calorie, high-sodium foods, such as refined, processed or fast foods, can shape up your diet as well as your heart and waistline.
Design daily menus for yourself.  Planning helps you stay on track, and when you are selecting foods for each meal and snack, emphasize fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Choose lean protein sources and limit high-fat and salty foods. Variety also makes your meals and snacks more interesting.
Finally, allow yourself the occasional treat. A handful of potato chips or a candy bar won’t ruin your heart-healthy diet. But don’t let it turn into a habit. What’s important is that you eat healthy foods most of the time.
Integrate these diet tips into your life, and you’ll continue to find that heart-healthy eating is both achievable and fun. With planning and a few simple substitutions, you can keep your heart healthy for a lifetime.

Finding that Right Exercise – Guest Post

Hey NeverEver’s!
Might I introduce you to Mo Langley. She is a Southern Cali personal Trainer for the Dana Point Turkey Trot. I know if you live anywhere NEAR Cali you know about the Dana Point Turkey Trot! Well after much talking I was able to get her to write an article for me ^_^. 
Oh and don’t forget to check out the actual Turkey Trot! Its their 36th year and they are supposed to be bigger then ever. Plus they have a 5K, 10K and a 5k with a 10k (for those lovable but crazy runners who really want to work off that pumpkin pie ^_^). Oh and they have a Kids Run too. Check them out
How do you find the right exercise?  Do you answer the quizzes in the magazines, watch other people in the gym, listen to your best friend, or try the latest crazes?  Has anything worked?
I prescribe workout plans to the simple idea of body type.  Are you a banana, apple or pear?  All three types have their own characteristics that include body fat and muscle.  Your body type is determined genetically and truly can be enhanced by your type of workout.

The banana, or the ectomorph, is characterized by higher body fat and has a difficult time building muscle.  They generally have long limbs, feet and fingers, and do not gain weight very easily.  They are considered “skinny” and often times too skinny.  We see many of them running long distance races, which unfortunately only enhances their body type.

 I recommend resistance training programs for the banana to build more muscle mass and create strong bones, since this is the body type more prone to osteoporosis.  The banana should cut down on their cardio to build muscle and may create more curves by swimming, using the water as resistance.
The apple, or the mesomorph, is characterized by an up-side-down triangle shape. They are those “fit” people that we see in Southern California.  They are generally more lean and muscular, although if they do gain weight, it is in their upper body.  A common belief is that mesomorphs have it made, with their strong and athletic builds. 
However, women especially, find themselves being too bulky too easily. I recommend a combination of equal cardiovascular exercise combined with weight training for the mesomorph, to keep a good combination of lean muscle mass and body fat.  The mesomorph is able to keep their muscles longer and less bulky by adding yoga or Pilates into their program.  The combination of movement, posture and breath control in these two types of exercise can create a less bulky look.
The pear, or endomorph, is a body type characterized by a smaller upper body with more curves or body fat around the hips and upper thighs. This body type has strong legs and a smaller, less muscular, upper body.  Most women and some men fall in to this body type. While endomorphs have a tougher time than other body types in losing fat, they are often just as fit as other body types.
For pears, who usually carry extra fat around the lower abdomen, hips and thighs, the key is to start with a program that burns calories instead of a lot of strength training. The extra weight they carry can cause increased pressure on lower joints such as knees, hips and feet, so it is important for pears to at first avoid engaging in exercises that can add stress to these areas. That means trading high-impact exercises like tennis, jumping rope or other activities that involve intense and repetitive movements for low-impact cardio workouts like walking or biking.  Light weight training is also important to increase mid and upper back strength.
The most important aspect of any effective exercise program is to find the one that is right for you, mentally and physically.  By doing the appropriate exercises for your body type, you will achieve your desired goals faster, and you will find yourself motivated to stick with it.
Mo Langley is the local and personal trainer for the Dana Point Turkey Trot, Orange County’s most beautiful Thanksgiving Day tradition.
