Happy New Year!

I hope that this year is a much better one for everyone in all ways.

Are you feeling the effects of holiday gluttony? Too many holiday
favorites, too little in the work-out department? Do you think you

Dieting through the Holidays - Part 3
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Season's Greetings Friends!

As the holidays get closer and closer many dieters are now to the
point that they are hoping they end soon! Of course it's not easy
to lose at this time of the year - but remember as I've said in a
previous newsletter - even maintaining your weight at this time of
the year is good.

More parties and family gatherings are taking place now and it will
be like this until the New Year.

Some of us will be trying new recipes or making some tried-and-true
dishes, and some will be trying to find ways to make the
tried-and-true a healthier dish. Which brings me to READING LABELS.

Dieting through the Holidays - Part 2

THEY'RE BAAAACCCKKKK!

The holidays that is! Each day we draw closer and closer with much more
temptation. And it is not easy when you are determined to lose weight and
have be so dedicated and faithful only to have a dear friend or relative or
two try to persuade you to indulge more than you want. Of course "it's the
holiday", or "but Aunt Mabel made these special just for you - she knows
how much you love them", or "but we are only together at this time of the
year" and yada, yada, yada.

Friends mean well but sometimes they just don't understand. And if you
have been having difficulty trying to lose excess weight or maintain after
the long struggle of dieting, it's not easy.

16 Ways to Burn Off Stubborn Body Fat

Oct 4 2008 - 1:59pm

Eat less ... lose weight?!? Here's the other stuff you can do to get leaner.

1) Don’t diet to extremes. Reducing calories by 15-20% a day will almost exclusively burn fat while larger cuts in calories will burn a combo of muscle tissue and fat. Muscle drives the metabolism – calorie burning. This is why extreme low calorie diets don’t work unless you’re doing some type of weight training to maintain or increase your muscle and metabolism.

2) Graze all day. Professional athletes and models eat all day long yet keep their total calories under control. The grazing method, 5-6 small meals, elevates the metabolism. Each time you eat, the metabolism increases, and over a 6-10 week period, that increase can parlay into another 2-3 pounds of fat loss.

You think! Thank God the Associated Press released this information. Give me a break! I always thought it was just the polluted tap water that was ballooning our nations youth to a level that brought Fat Albert close to the norm. The next thing they will be telling us is that the lack of physical activity of our kids is making them ginourmous.

Plateaus

Jun 30 2008 - 12:00am

The first thing we need to do is define what a plateau really is. Understanding plateaus are important, because if you were losing weight, but now you’re not, you are experiencing one. It will not just fix itself. As with all of life you need to make an adjustment to maintain momentum. If you have plateaued it is because you were in a calorie deficit but you’re no longer in a calorie deficit.
It is inevitable unless you understand how to make the proper adjustments

I Am Here To Help

Jun 24 2008 - 9:13pm

I have to be honest. I am feeling a little bit neglected. My mission in life is to help people get the most out of their physical vehicle. I want to do more for TeamDiet members. I want to hear from them and get to know them. I am totally approachable and want to assist as many people as I can.

When I am working with clients at a gym I have people constantly asking for advice, recomendations or feedback on nutrition and fitness. It is not that I have a desk set up in the middle of the gym with a sign promoting free fitness consultation. Actually I have only 5-10 minutes before and after working with each client. In person I can convey my openess, willingness and desire to communicate with others with my body language and expression. Here I literally have to spell it out.
