Meal Replacements; are they working for you or against you?

posted by Fitness Focus    |   January 15, 2011 17:24

The term meal replacement has become a very common (and overused) one; and with more products and advertisements coming out everyday, it's pretty obvious why.  It has also left people a little more confused about the purpose of them.  In reality, maybe they shouldn't really be called "replacements" at all.  The word "replacement" gives a sense that it is just as good as real food, very misleading.  There are no substitutions for real food.  Weather your goal is to lose weight or gain weight, things like meal replacements, bars and protein shakes are supplemetal and work best between meals and worst case senario if you absolutely have to miss a meal.

Before You Let Your New Years Resolution Fizzle

This article was taken from the Saskatoon StarPhoenix.  Something to remember as we start our 2011 in the gym...

Exercise helps even if you don't shed pounds

 Fitness benefits go beyond weight loss
 

The constant ying yang of weight loss and gain is not only frustrating, it makes you question whether all that hard work in the gym is worth it. Before you pack up your workout gear for good, however, rest assured that gym workouts are well worth the time and effort -- even if those extra pounds stubbornly refuse to disappear.

Exercise has a lot more to offer than just a means to lose weight. Its most important role is the impact it has on health -- especially among those who carry extra pounds.

Most people already know that exercise improves cardiovascular health and reduces the risk of some forms of cancer. What's less well known is that exercise also reduces the health risks associated with carrying extra weight. In fact, several studies suggest that chubby exercisers are healthier than skinny couch potatoes....

Switching from weight loss to maintenance over the holidays

posted by Fitness Focus    |   November 12, 2009 11:36

Every year, look forward to this holiday season. If you are like me, I've been trying to keep myself in somewhat decent shape. You never know when a great deal to Jamaica might come up. I know to eat clean, and eat more often. I also know how hard it can be to follow those rules over Christmas Holiday and New Years.

Maintenance of your weight means not gaining, but also not trying to lose. To lock into a plateau so change can't happen quickly. At the same time we know clean eating is going to be tough, and eating more often or regularily with company or visiting relatives can be quite frustrating.

In a world where we raise metabolism, instead of trying to starve ourselves we have an easy plan to follow. The under eaters, and calorie watchers are definitely going to gain over this 30 day holiday stretch. We however have metabolism, fueling the fire. I can eat pretty much anything I want without gaining a pound if I:
(1) Don't miss my regular meal times and not let my metabolism crash so my body will burn food, and not store fat.
And (2) Portion my food. This means 5 meals need to be similar in size. Supper can't be twice or 3 or 4 times as big as your breakfast. That is simple overeating.

If you want to know more about this subject you know how to get ahold of us. Happy Holidays.
