The 15-Minute Fat Loss Secret No One is Telling You
Delicious Meal Plan-Personal Trainer-Workout Routine-Jump Start Diet-Group Fitness
15-minute-workout-dvd.jpg

Want to get in seriously great shape? All it takes is a DVD player and 15 minutes a day. And we can prove it to you, with The Women's Health 15-Minute Belly, Butt & Thighs Workout DVD. It's destined to be a top new fitness trend of 2012.
Why? Because it uses cutting-edge science to help you burn more calories per minute than typical workouts. In fact, you'll pack more exercise into 15 minutes than most people do in sessions that last twice that long. So don't think of these workouts as short: Think of them as efficient. Super-efficient. These 15-minute workouts will help you:
Trade Fat for Muscle

?Premiere strength-training researcher Wayne Westcott, PhD, CSCS, instructor in the exercise science department at Quincy College in Massachusetts, confirms that when you choose your exercises wisely, a handful of moves—just four in some cases—is all you need to change your body composition. "Navy research shows you can get tremendous overall improvement—losing 4 pounds of fat and adding 2 pounds of muscle in 8 weeks—by doing just four exercises that work every major muscle," he says.
Burn More Calories

?The calorie-burning benefits of even the shortest strength-training bout keep coming long after you've left the gym. In a study from Southern Illinois University, researchers found that when volunteers did just one set of nine exercises, or about 11 minutes of strength training, 3 days a week, they increased their resting metabolic rate (the calories burned when just hanging out) and fat burning enough to keep unwanted weight at bay.
Stay Young

?Unless you do something to stop it, your body loses about half a pound of muscle a year after age 20, says Tina Schmidt-McNulty, exercise specialist at Purdue University Calumet. That may sound nearly insignificant, but when you consider that muscle is your body's biggest calorie burner—burning five times as many calories per pound as fat—it's like "taking your foot off the gas pedal of your metabolism right as you enter adulthood," explains McNulty.
If you want to take advantage of effective 15-minute workouts, check out The Women's Health 15-Minute Belly, Butt & Thighs Workout DVD.
With this DVD, you will:

*Blast 40% more fat
?*Burn twice as many calories
?*Rev your metabolism as much as 72 hours longer?

Carve out 15 minutes and pick up a copy of The Women's Health 15-Minute Belly, Butt & Thighs Workout DVD! In just weeks you'll start to see a tighter, leaner, head-turning body.
Get Fit in 15 minutes! Try the DVD today! read more..

Aerobic Exercise-Metabolic Rate-Metabolism-Calories

healthysexyhappy:1. Build muscle Our bodies constantly burn...

healthysexyhappy:1. Build muscle Our bodies constantly burn calories, even when we’re doing nothing. This resting metabolic rate is much higher in people with more muscle. Every pound of muscle uses about 6 calories a day just to sustain itself, while each pound of fat burns only 2 calories daily. That small difference can add up over time. In addition, after a bout of resistance training, muscles are activated all over your body, increasing your average daily metabolic rate.2. Step up your workout Aerobic exercise may not build big muscles, but it can rev up your metabolism in the hours after a workout. The key is to push yourself. High-intensity exercise delivers a bigger, longer increase in resting metabolic rate than low- or moderate-intensity workouts. To get the benefits, try a more intense class at the gym or include short bursts of jogging during your regular walk.3. Fuel up with waterThe body needs water to process calories. If you are even mildly dehydrated, your metabolism may slow down. In one study, adults who drank eight or more glasses of water a day burned more calories than those who drank four. To stay hydrated, drink a glass of water or other unsweetened beverage before every meal and snack. In addition, try munching on fresh fruits and vegetables, which are full of fluid, rather than pretzels or chips.4. Sinless snackingEating more really can help you lose weight — eating more often, that is. When you eat large meals with many hours in between, you train your metabolism to slow down. Having a small meal or snack every 3 to 4 hours keeps your metabolism cranking, so you burn more calories over the course of a day. Several studies have also shown that people who snack regularly eat less at meal time5. Spice up your mealsSpicy foods contain chemical compounds that kick the metabolism into high gear. Eating a tablespoon of chopped red or green chili pepper can boost your metabolic rate. The effect is likely temporary, but if you eat spicy foods often, the benefits may add up. For a quick boost, spice up pasta dishes, chili, and stews with red-pepper flakes.6. Recharge with green teaDrinking green tea or oolong tea offers the combined benefits of caffeine and catechins, substances shown to rev up the metabolism for a couple hours. Research suggests that drinking two to four cups of either tea may push the body to burn 17% more calories than normal for a short period of time. read more..

American Heart Association-Body Fat Percentage-Cardio Workouts-Women

hi Camilla... i have this apple-shaped body and it's so hard for me to get a little bit skinny legs. so, when i lose weight, my tummy looks smaller but my legs don't change that much. any suggestions for me?

You look like pear-shaped ?Try;Cardio
In order to tone the pear-shaped body, it is important to keep the body fat percentage down. Cardio workouts are the best way to burn fat. Women with pear-shaped bodies have more body fat in the lower half of the body and need to incorporate cardio exercise into the workout to burn the excess fat. The recommendation by the American Heart Association, is that cardio exercise be done an average of 60 minutes several days per week. Additionally, women should incorporate interval training at least one time per week to boost maximum calorie burning. By following these guidelines, pear-shaped women will have better success at achieving toning goals.
Toning exercises are an obviously necessary part of toning the pear-shaped body. Concentration on the abdomen, hips, and thighs is especially necessary since these are typically the problem areas for this body type. Squats, hip extensions and crunches are all excellent toning exercises for these areas. Walking lunges are also a great way to burn calories while toning the thighs and buttocks. These exercises don’t require any special equipment and can be done virtually anywhere.
Squats are done by standing with feet shoulder length apart and pushing the buttocks out as if to sit, but standing back up before fully in the seated position. Weight should be on the heels to get the toning in the glutes and hamstrings. Lunges are done by stepping one leg forward and bending at both knees, keeping the weight on the front leg, and then getting back to a standing position. Repeat three sets of twenty lunges on each leg.
To achieve best results, women should plan on scheduling toning exercises four times per week.
Stretching is important to keep the body in optimal shape for the next workout. Tight muscles that have not been properly stretched before or after a workout can lead to injury. Begin at the top of the body and stretch the neck while taking deep breaths. Move down the length of the body, stretching each major muscle group: shoulders, triceps, biceps, chest, hamstrings and calves. Stretching will lengthen and loosen tight muscles, allowing better flexibility during all physical activities. read more..

You don’t need to carbo-load for a 10km race run in about 60 minutes – all your nutritional needs should already be met. So follow your moderate to high carbohydrate diet until two days before race day. The day before race day switch to a low-fibre diet (white bread, white rice, low-fibre cereal) and avoid very spicy foods – and dairy if necessary.
On race day, eat a light carbohydrate meal or snack about two hours before the race, like cereal or porridge with low fat milk; or toast with jam or honey. If you’re not hungry, have a liquid meal replacement. You shouldn’t eat or drink anything that you haven’t tried out before. And drink some fluid with your pre-race meal so you start the race well hydrated.
Once you’ve warmed up and stretched, have about 300 – 500ml of cold fluid about five minutes before the start of the race. If it’s a hot day and you’re running 10km in more than 60 minutes, you might need to drink about once during the race. Make sure you drink enough fluids after the race, and enjoy a salty snack.
Entering the race
If you want to avoid registration queues, get to the race at least 45 minutes before the start. This will give you time to find parking, and go to the toilet, if you’re the nervous type.
If you have a Temp license, pin it to the front of your vest with the safety pins provided.
Start the race middle- to near-back otherwise you might be ploughed down by enthusiastic elite runners who start at a cracking pace.
Running the race
Start at a comfortable pace, and try not to rush off because of all the adrenaline flowing. You’ll tire and run out of steam too early.
Water/coke stations
There will be a couple of refreshment tables on the run. Feel free to walk and take a drink (and catch your breath), before you head off again. Some runners drink and run – see how you feel.
Save enough energy so that you can run down the finishing straight and cross the line with head up high. What a feeling!
The idea of ‘race day’ can be pretty daunting for newbies, so we’ve gathered some advice from a few seasoned runners.
Don’t worry about finishing last
Nearly everyone worries about coming last, but it’s probably not going to happen – especially if you’ve prepared.
Choose your clothing carefully
Wear what you’ve trained in so you know it works. The rule is ‘nothing new on race day’, and that includes your sports bra, socks, shoes and running shorts.
It’s your first race so you don’t have a personal time to beat. Just focus on getting through and finishing – and most of all, enjoy it!
In the days before a race, vary your diet with nongrain carb sources, such as fruits and starchy vegetables, to benefit from a wider range of nutrients. read more..

Today is a calming day. I woke up this morning to rain and wind and waited until all of 5 of my alarms went off every 15 minutes from 10am to 11am to actually get out of bed. Then I decided to drink a cup of vanilla chai tea, light my soy candle, and… well, take a ton of pictures before starting to do some yoga and workout (just abs).Now I’ve got to get ready to leave somewhere. I will probably work out again tonight so those few ab workouts I have in my inbox will be done tonight (: read more..

Reverse Crunches-Bicycle Crunches-Thighs

Hi! Just want to say that I love your blog. I was wondering what your workout is for abs and thighs? I am trying to really tone those areas. Thanks! :)

Hi! Thank you! And thanks for the work out suggestion (hip thrusts), I’ll be doing those later tonight when I work out. For abs, I do bicycle crunches, reverse crunches, cross over crunches, bicycle and reverse bicycle. Sometimes I’ll forearm plank, mason twist, and I’m trying to be able to do flutter kicks because they’re so effective. I also like to do normal crunches holding a 10 lb weight on my chest or for more of a work out including the arms (which is hard), holding the weight behind my head. For Thighs, I don’t really do much. Walking lunges are good, hiking, and doing some of the warrior type poses in yoga burns my thighs a lot. I don’t remember the names of the specific ones, but going from warrior I to warrior II, then resting forearm on top of bent thigh, then leaning backwards into the back leg… Doing those for a while are good.

World Health Organization-Mustard Greens-Collard Greens-Calcium-Bones

kellie-the-vegetarian:The dairy industry would like us to...

kellie-the-vegetarian:The dairy industry would like us to believe that milk builds strong bones. They spend hundreds of millions of dollars a year to advertise milk and cheese. Yet, a 12-year Harvard study of 78,000 women demonstrated that those who drank the most milk broke more bones than women who rarely drank milk. Evidence from around the world shows that in countries where dairy intake is highest, osteoporosis is most prevalent. Where dairy is seldom consumed, bones remain strong into old age. While we certainly don’t need milk, we do need calcium to keep our bones healthy. The good news is that a plethora of vegetarian foods-including beans and greens, dried fruit, nuts and seeds, and fortified juice and soymilk-all provide ample calcium.How much is enough? The World Health Organization recommends we consume 1000 milligrams of calcium every day, while the recommended daily allowance in North America and developed countries—where people eat a high-protein, high-salt diet—is 1000 to 1300 milligrams a day. Here is a list of some of our favorite calcium-rich foods:Collards (1 cup cooked): 385 mg
Fortified orange juice (1 cup): 350 mg
Dried figs (10 medium): 269 mg
Tofu (1/2 cup): 258 mg
White beans (1 cup cooked): 161 mg
Mustard greens (1 cup cooked): 150 mg
Navy beans (1 cup cooked): 128 mg
Kale (1 cup cooked): 94 mg
Chickpeas (1 cup cooked): 80 mg
Raisins (2/3 cups): 80 mgNow that you’re armed with knowledge about the bone-boosting calcium in your favorite menu items, try these quick and easy ways to create scrumptious snacks and meals using plant-based, calcium-rich foods:1. Pour some calcium-enriched soymilk or nut milk on breakfast cereal, and sprinkle some raisins on top.
2. Add kale, collard greens, or mustard greens to salads. Chop up a few dried figs and toss them in to add calcium-packed sweetness.
3. Use kale or collard greens on sandwiches instead of lettuce.
4. Add a few tablespoons of silken tofu to a fruit smoothie.
5. Add beans to salads, mash them on toast, or cook with some veggie dogs. read more..
