Advertisers spend millions of dollars to convince us that their diet programs will soon have us looking like their shapely models.
A diet program may help you lose a few pounds, but 20 to 25% of the weight lost will be muscle. The starvation diet sends a message to your body that there is a famine in the land, and it responds by hanging on to every ounce of fat to keep you alive.
To make things worse the muscle loss causes weakness and loss of energy.
Sooner or later you give up the diet programs and return to your old way of eating...the one that got us in trouble in the first place.
The lost pounds come home to roost and bring a few friends with them.
The answer is (surprise!) exercise. But not boring hours on the treadmill.
You need to rev-up your metabolism with strength training and smart cardiovascular exercise.
Between age 30 and 60 the average American gains about 45 pounds of body fat and loses 15 pounds of muscle.
The scales only show a weight gain of 30 pounds, but fail to tell you that the loss of muscle has caused your body's metabolism to drop like a rock.
The good news is that, with no change in your eating, and with only 12 weeks of strength training, you can restore 3 pounds of muscle and burn 4 pounds of fat.
And the story gets better. Strength training also increases bone density, improves glucose metabolism and increases gastrointestinal transit speed. (Think prunes.)
It will also lower blood pressure, improve cholesterol and reduce arthritis pain.
You can also gear-up your metabolism by incorporating three or four 20 to 30-second bursts of intensity into a 15 to 20-minute workout. You should be breathing heavy but not be exhausted.
Rest for a minute or two, until your heart rate slows and your breath has returned to normal. It's as though you are climbing up a hill and then coasting down the other side.
Three or four times a week repeat this sprint and rest system, known as interval training, and in just a few weeks you will notice the difference.
God designed our bodies to adapt to the challenges that we provide them. If we snooze, we lose.
I thought I knew all the right aerobic exercise programs, but after trying Dr. Al Sears' new PACE Express Fitness Revolution program, it was soon apparent that there was more to learn.
This program is extremely effective and takes far less time than the "conventional" programs which coax you into spending hours in the gym to achieve your goals.
Dr. Sears new patented program builds on the principle that long-duration exercise isn't natural.
Our ancient ancestors didn't run for mile after mile without rest or recovery. Their exercise was primarily hunting, or on some terrifying occasions being hunted. Their daily exercise "routine" consisted of short bursts of exertion, followed by periods of very welcome rest.
By using this system you recreate exactly what your body needs for weight loss, heart health, increased lung function and greater energy.
By boosting your heart's "reserve capacity," Dr. Sears reveals that you can nearly eliminate your risk of heart attack.
Dr. Sears explains to us why endurance training ends up doing the exact opposite of what our body was designed to do.
Heart attacks don't happen because your heart lacks endurance. They happen during times of stress, when your heart needs more energy and pumping capacity, but doesn't have it.
Has procrastination pushed exercise and weight loss to the bottom of your priority list? If so maybe it's time to take a look at my collegue Dr. Al Sears highly successful program to cure your heart disease with exercise.
